    On Current TV’s “Viewpoint” on Jan 17, Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) attacked Republicans over their alleged inability to get anything done, and said “these are people who want to kick you when you're down.” In the interview, Grayson was critical of House Republicans over the amount of time it took to provide federal assistance to those affected by Hurricane Sandy. … He continued “Look, we live in a country where almost 25 million people can’t find full time work and the president and the Democratic Party have been desperately trying to do something about this for the past four years...

    Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Florida) lambasted the Republican Party on Friday night during an appearance on “Real Time With Bill Maher,” accusing the GOP of being divided into three fringe sectors. “There are really 3 Republican parties: there are the corporate shills, there are the religious fanatics and then there are the freedom fiends, the ones who want to make sure you have the right to sleep under a bridge,” Grayson told HBO’s Bill Maher. Maher, an outspoken liberal comedian, appeared to agree and summed up Grayson’s analysis in his own words. “So Jesus freaks, gun nuts, generic obese suburbanites, and...

    Democratic congressman Alan Grayson is a very colorful man, and in keeping with that reputation, during an appearance on Al Sharpton‘s MSNBC show Thursday, he said the tea party is just about as popular as the KKK and compared John Boehner to Dr. Jekyll, among other things. Grayson joined Sharpton in bashing the tea party, saying Americans want them out of their lives and “at this point, the tea party’s no more popular than the Klan.” This is not the first time Grayson had made this comparison, saying in 2010 that the attendees of Glenn Beck‘s big rally were “wearing...

    Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson sent out a fundraising email with a burning cross to compare the tea party to the Klu Klux Klan. The Florida congressman, who was known for his over-the-top antics in the House during a previous tenure in Congress, also excerpted a transcript of a recent appearance on MSNBC’s “Politics Nation w/ Al Sharpton” in which he declared that, after the government shutdown, “the tea party is no more popular than the Klan.” In the email, the burning cross is used as a “t” to spell out “tea party.” See part of the email below:

    If Alfalfa had an evil twin brother it would have to be that big Little Rascal Alan Grayson. Like any good liberal he never lets facts get in the way of an opportunity to call conservatives racist. He sent an email with that cute little KKK image below to supporters...and I took the liberty of correcting it.It reminds me of the idiotic joke Bill Maher used to tell about the 2000 RNC that the last time the GOP had so many blacks on stage they were selling them...it got a huge laugh by the room full of libnorant people. Obviously it...

    Political Correctness: As liberals obsess over the name of a football team, they ignore hate speech spewing from their own ranks over Americans' exercise of constitutional rights. 'If I were the owner of the team, and I knew that there was a name of my team — even if it had a storied history — that was offending a sizeable group of people, I'd think about changing it," President Obama said in an Associated Press interview on the subject of the Washington Redskins. But if there is anything that should offend everyone, it should be the image of a burning...

    <p>Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson, who is known for lobbing over-the-top rhetorical bombs at his political foes, once again is being accused of taking things too far -- after his campaign sent an email that compared the Tea Party to the Ku Klux Klan while depicting a burning cross. The email showed a large image of the flaming cross, with the letters "ea Party" etched in to the right of it. The caption read: "Now You Know What the 'T' Stands For." The email included "pointed analysis" from Grayson in which he said, "The Tea Party is no more popular than the Klan," blasting the conservative organization for its role in the showdown that resulted in the two-week partial government shutdown.</p>
  • Congressman Alan Grayson Suggests a Burning Cross for Tea Party Logo

    In an e-mail to supporters yesterday (and on his Tumblr), filter-deficient Florida congressman Alan Grayson, as is his wont, suggested that the t in tea party stands for a burning cross. As to his assertion that the tea party is actually "no more popular than the Klan," 26 percent of Americans support the tea party according to a new Washington Post/ABC News poll, and we couldn't find any polls measuring support for the KKK but ... it's probably lower than that. Grayson does not offer a source for the claim in his e-mail. Instead, it was hyperlinked to a campaign-donations...

    (ORLANDO, Fla.) -- Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Fla., is defying criticism from Republicans and fellow Democrats for comparing the Tea Party to the KKK, saying he is “calling them out on their hate” and that it “needs to be done.” Grayson ramped up his attack on the Tea Party after he was rebuked by Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Steve Israel as well as from the GOP. But Grayson was unapologetic. “I’m calling them out for their hate,” Grayson said. “That’s not wrong. That needs to be done. It’s the only way to end it.” He also went a step further...

    Just days after comparing the tea party to the Ku Klux Klan, Florida’s most-outspoken Democratic Congressman, Alan Grayson, addressed the state party faithful Saturday and likened some Republicans to Confederate flag-waving “bigots.” Grayson made his comments during a mock reading of a fake Republican Party agenda in which he suggested conservatives were also gay marriage-bashing gun nuts. “At 8:30 a.m., the morning breakout sessions,” Grayson said, reading the made-up GOP agenda. “Ballroom A: the bigots. Ballroom B: the paranoids. And Ballroom C, the largest group of all: the gullible.” The speech, largely applauded by the attendees of the Florida Democratic...

    The Ku Klux Klan was formed as a social club by a group of Confederate Army veterans in Pulaski, Tennessee in the winter of 1865-66. The group adopted the name Ku Klux Klan from the Greek word "kyklos," meaning circle, and the English word clan. In the summer of 1867, the Klan became the "Invisible Empire of the South" at a convention in Nashville, Tennessee attended by delegates from former Confederate states. The group was presided over General Nathan Bedford Forrest, who is believed to have been the first Grand Wizard -- the title for the head of the organization.

    Samuel "Joe The Plumber" Wurzelbacher, the conservative activist and failed Ohio congressional candidate who rose to prominence after he had a campaign trail confrontation with President Barack Obama before his election in 2008, posted a tweet Friday accusing Democrats of having "a history of lynching Black Americans." Wurzelbacher's tweet was accompanied by a picture showing the word Democrat with the final "T" replaced by an image of a burning cross. The burning cross photo came from The Black Sphere, a site run by a conservative African-American writer named Kevin Jackson, who originally published the picture as a response to comments...

    ''At a state level, it's up to them. I don't want it to be a federal thing. I personally still think it's wrong.... Queer means strange and unusual. It's not like a slur, like you would call a white person a honky or something like that.... I've had some friends that are actually homosexual. And, I mean, they know where I stand, and they know that I wouldn't have them anywhere near my children. But at the same time, they're people, and they're going to do their thing.''

    "Joe the Plumber," (Samuel Wurzelbacher) now in Israel to report for Pajamas Media on the war with Hamas in Gaza, found himself the subject of interviews as you will see in the video above. Among other things, Joe criticized the way the media covers wars today, and said the media should be "abolished from reporting" on the scene to cover wars. I would disagree with Joe. He's right that there has been a great deal of biased and unfair reporting on wars in Vietnam and Iraq. But there have been journalists who report admirably on the scene of combat situations...
