The Historical Party of Racism Calls Tea Party ‘Racist’

I guess when you’re morally and intellectually bankrupt, the only retort you can muster is the tired old lie of smearing your opponents as “racists.”

From the Daily Caller:

Florida Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson is standing by his campaign’s comparison of the tea party with the Klu Klux Klan.

On Monday, Grayson’s re-election campaign sent out a fundraising email with a picture of a burning cross, which was used as a “t” to spell out “tea party.”

Uh huh. The Tea Party is racist. That’s why so many Tea Party people loved Herman Cain and Allen West, and featured people like Lloyd Marcus and Ira Taken Alive at Tea Party events. And don’t forget’s Chief Strategist Niger Innis. That’s why Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) is so phenomenally popular among Tea Party “racists.”

“Regarding the image that the campaign circulated, members of the Tea Party have engaged in relentless racist attacks against our African-American President,” Grayson said, before listing alleged racist incidents tea party members have engaged in and including a racist depiction of President Obama.

Yes, the ONLY reason Tea Party patriots are critical of President Obama is because they are racists. It has nothing to do with his pure contempt for the U.S. Constitution, the rule of law, the freedom of the American people, or America herself. No, just racism.

Oh, and the “racist depictions” to which he refers? Maybe he’s talking about the ones we see from the Leftist Lyndon LaRouche goons and other liberal Tea Party infiltrators. But liberals can’t be racist, so it can’t be that.

This from the party of Senator Robert “KKK” Byrd and President Lyndon Johnson who touted his socialist giveaway programs as a way to placate the “uppity” Negroes “to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference”…at least not enough to make a difference with their “uppitiness”, but plenty of difference in getting black Americans under the thumb of the Democrat Party:

“I’ll have those n***ers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.”

Yes, Democrats really “care” about minorities, don’t they? They make good election fodder, after all.

But we weren’t done examining Grayson’s “indictment” of the “racist” Tea Party:

“Tea Party candidates, including my opponent in the last election, have endorsed forcing Hispanics to speak English,” he added.

Yeah, we racist Tea Party patriots (mean bunch that we are) expect Hispanics to speak English…like we expect it of Italians, French, Germans, Chinese, Japanese, Russians, Sudanese, Bulgarians, Swedes, Norwegians, blacks and whites and yellows and browns and purple-polka dotted Martians and anyone else who wants to live in our country. Yes, definitely a racist expectation…especially since it’s a citizenship requirement:

Be able to read, write, and speak English and have knowledge and an understanding of U.S. history and government (civics).

I bet that’s what Grayson is really upset about: he knows most liberals have almost no knowledge and understanding of U.S. history and government.

“One could go on and on, because there is overwhelming evidence that the Tea Party is the home of bigotry and discrimination in America today, just as the KKK was for an earlier generation. If the shoe fits, wear it.”

At some point (long past), the lies of the Left really start to make George Orwell’s novels look like non-fiction.

Can someone get Rep. Grayson a history book…or two? And a copy of the U.S. Constitution while you’re at it?

    Wow, Grayson really has some nerve. It speaks very badly of Florida residents that he managed to be elected to any kind of office. As a Florida resident myself, I wish I had more than one vote to put against him. Of course, only the people likely to vote for someone like him would actually try to *have* multiple votes!

The Pope and ‘Unfettered Capitalism’

Robert Romano

Did Pope Francis really lay a broadside into what he called “unfettered capitalism”? That is certainly what headline writers the world over would have you believe. Well, at least the ones that picked up Reuters’ account of the Pope’s new apostolic exhortation, “The Joy of the Gospel,” a news story that was then syndicated globally. There is, however, one acute problem with the quote. Francis never actually wrote that.


Winning Battles in the War on Christmas

Bob Ellis

Yes, Christmas and Christianity are definitely under fire from rabid secularists in our culture. But there are many victories over these attack, too, and this CitizenLink report outlines some of them. Important, too, is the fact that sometimes all it takes for a victory is simply to educate good people who have been misled about our history, our Constitution, and what is right.


Law, Lawmaking and Morality

Michael Peroutka

All law and lawmaking is "religious" in the sense that it derives its authority to act from something outside of -- above -- itself. In this country, that "something" that our law is based on is the Bible. This is clearly apparent not only in the text of the Declaration of Independence, but it is also demonstrated in the texts of our earliest covenants, constitutions, law-codes, compacts and charters.


FDR’s Destructive Raw Deal

Bob Ellis

President Franklin D. Roosevelt's "New Deal" was an all-out assault on the U.S. Constitution and the American way of life. Though few everyday Americans saw it at the time (media coverage that reached average Americans was relatively minimal in those days, and people still had an instinctive trust in our government), most of what FDR rammed down America's collective throat during his four terms was blatantly unconstitutional. Burt Folsom, author of "New Deal or Raw Deal, spoke with Bill Whittle about FDR and how President Barack Obama's policies seem to be a continuation of that same un-American, counterproductive socialist bent.

David Horowitz

The Transition of a Radical Leftist to Conservatism

Bob Ellis

If you're not familiar with David Horowitz's story, you need to watch this video. I know a lot of these details from having read his "Radical Son" book in which he details his journey from a radical Leftist and son of card-carrying communists, to a conservative. Like many liberals, it took a cold bucket of reality to wake him up. In his case, it was the realization that his Lefty friends were extremely dangerous.


"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
