Unhinged liberal hate on steroids.

The Hill reports that liberal icon/Congressman Alan Grayson (D-FL) is engaged in his usual unhinged activities, you know, like raising money off of equating the Tea Party to the KKK and stuff (via Memeorandum):

Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.), a liberal firebrand known for his controversial comments, compared the Tea Party to the Ku Klux Klan in an email to supporters that features a photo of a burning cross.

In an interview with the Rev. Al Sharpton, quoted in the fundraising email, Grayson declares that “the Tea Party is no more popular than the Klan.”

He also charges that the “ultimate Tea Party Republican desire” is to “bring about the End of Days.”

The comments were blasted to Grayson’s supporters in a Monday email that also features a picture of a burning cross, with two KKK members in the background, forming the first letter T of the words “Tea Party.” The KKK is known to burn crosses near communities they hope to intimidate.

“Now you know what the ‘T’ stands for,” reads the caption on the photo.

Clicking the photo directs supporters to a contribution page.

In case any of you might be thinking that Grayson (who refuses to apologize) is a one off, a guy who doesn’t speak for the rest of his party, think again. He’s just bluntly saying what many in the Democrat party already feel about the Tea Party – and Republicans in general, but are too chicken to say. With exceptions, of course, like his Congressional colleague and DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, also from Florida, who has talked in the recent past about how Republicans want to “drag us all the way back to Jim Crow laws” with Voter ID laws.  And using the word “drag” was not by accident.  Ms. Wasserman Schultz’s comments – as well as Grayson’s – have been echoed in milder terms (sometimes not so mild) by Democrats right here in North Carolina in response to our recently passed and signed into law Voter ID legislation. This in spite of the fact that it was North Carolina Democrats who instituted Jim Crow laws  here  and who also passed laws making it legal to forcibly sterilize ‘undesirables” (hint: black citizens). But we won’t waste any more time on pesky facts …

It’s interesting. For a party that is supposedly in such “good shape” prior to 2014 elections, the Democrats sure are desperate to use the race card quite often. Usually they use it when they’re in political trouble.  But now …? Hmm.

Anyway, I tweeted to Grayson that I would guarantee there are a many, many, many more Commies/Socialists in his party than there are racists in the Tea Party. However,  I didn’t think about it until after the fact that he would probably consider that to be a compliment. Oh well … ;)

    Hell, I’d wager there are a lot more racists in the Democrat party than the Tea Party, for that matter.

    Look, irrational hatred has been a staple of would-be totalitarians since forever. It’s an old formula: pick out a group, accuse them of being the cause of all the ills in the country, get the simple-minded (aka Obama’s base) to turn on them. and ride the groundswell of hatred to power.

    Or, as Alinsky put it more succinctly, pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.

    Petty. Shallow. Mean-spirited. Such people as Grayson exhibit these attributes. Eventually, they are their own un-doing, which in his case can’t come soon enough.

  3. I suspect that he’s gone off his much needed powerful meds. But let him keep yammering away, after all, he makes our point for us so why get in his way?

    Definitely proving to be the party of dividers! This is a really ugly situation, though. Unrepentant haters live in the democratic realm. This is their only recourse against reasoned criticism and the truth. Talk about the end of days! Whose eyes have the most scales on them! They have been given a powerful delusion and they believe in it to this level of deception!

    This is the tone for the Democratic Marxist Party… and although Grayson lacks the charm and charisma of the president… they actually HATE their opponents and anyone who has the audacity to criticize them. I’ve never seen anything like it. We have Holly-weird celebs coming out and saying the Tea Party Patriots—who want to return to the Constitution and are concerned about the National Debt—should be horsewhipped… or killed [thanks, Cher]. I have never in my lifetime seen such hate and anger spewed across the nation. I find it reflected here in my own area.
