A few days ago, Rep. Andre Carson (D-IN) told a Miami crowd that people from the Tea Party wanted to see black people hanging from a tree.
Carson is another member of the Congressional Black Caucus, that anachronistic group in Congress that is always playing racial politics. This is the third incident of nasty rhetoric coming from the CBC in the past couple of weeks. At what point do we say to the Carsons, Maxine Waters' and Frederica Wilsons that is they who are the racists? And where is our leader,Ppresident Obama, speaking out on this garbage? He is The One who was going to bring us together. Remember after the Giffords shooting in Arizona when certain voices were calling for a return to civility in our political discourse?
The reason the Tea Party movement sprang up has nothing to do with race; it has everything to do with the out-of-control size and abuses of power of our government. Allen West, who is mentioned in this article, is one of the favorite elected officials of the Tea Party movement as are Marco Rubio and Herman Cain.
These accusations are just plain sickening.
