When will the left be held responsible for the racist, dangerous, and downright evil rhetoric they hurl at those with whom they disagree politically? The most recent smear, pimped in Congressman Alan Grayson's fundraising email, is both over the top and disgusting--but he'll not be held to account, I'm sure. Democrats, whose history is steeped in racism, bigotry, and the KKK, somehow can get away with this kind of stuff, and it's an outrage.
This is the image in his letter:
Fox News reports:
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.
Republicans on Tuesday accused the Florida congressman of stepping -- way -- over the line.
"There's no excuse for the hateful words and imagery used by Congressman Grayson," said Matt Gorman, a spokesman for the National Republican Congressional Committee. "This hate-filled rhetoric has Americans fed up with Washington."
Of course, as tends to be the case when confronted about the racism they themselves repeatedly display, Grayson simply doubled down. Read about that and the rest of this article here.
