Audio: Hey, who’s up for Alan Grayson saying something incredibly obnoxious about conservatives?

posted at 8:30 pm on September 3, 2010 by Allahpundit

I almost care, but after a long bloggy week, this is like watching the umpteenth new “scandalous” Lady Gaga video: More than anything else, it just leaves you feeling … weary, and embarrassed for someone who’s trying so hard to shock that it comes off as desperate shtick. And yet I keep posting his crap, don’t I? You and me have a bad romance, Teacups.

This is via the Blaze, by the way, which also has video of noted scab-stomper Richard Trumka lamenting Sarah Palin’s super-scary violent tendencies. Exit question on the Grayson clip: I was a bit young at the time so I can’t be sure, but was the Klan really some major force in … 1985?

Update: For some strange reason, it occurs to me that reading this might make for a fine gloss on the audio.

Can’t even call that shocking. It’s usual forte when libs are with other libs, safe in the knowledge that it’s an echo chamber.

Yup, that thirty-two-year-old father of three, twenty-five years ago, on Halloween, was wearing a sheet over his head and taunting his black neighbors with “trick or treat.” You nailed him.

The people wearing sheets over their heads were Democrats.

Posting the history of the KKK on the internet inevitably causes Democrats to foam and threaten.

The truth is far uglier than most Democrats accept (or know) today, but the awful truth is the KKK WAS CREATED BY THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY to harass Blacks and poor Whites from registering and voting as Republican, which many of them were doing in the South, especially, also the MidWest.

The KKK was a DNC-created terrorist group and populated, run by Democrats. That’s in Congressional testimony.

Lourdes on September 3, 2010 at 8:42 PM

I’ll never understand how the Left got their history so screwed up. The KKK was made up mostly of democrats. Their heroes, like Lincoln and MLK, were Republicans. Somehow they think the opposite is true.

Klan groups spread throughout the South as an insurgent movement after the war. As a secret vigilante group, the Klan reacted against Radical Republican control of Reconstruction by attempting to restore white supremacy by threats and violence, including murder, against black and white Republicans. In 1870 and 1871 the federal government passed the Force Acts, which were used to prosecute Klan crimes. Prosecution of Klan crimes and enforcement of the Force Acts suppressed Klan activity. In 1874 and later, however, newly organized and openly active paramilitary organizations, such as the White League and the Red Shirts, started a fresh round of violence aimed at suppressing Republican voting and running Republicans out of office. These contributed to white conservative Democrats’ regaining political power in all the Southern states by 1877.

Senator Byrd, a democrat, was a very famous Klansman.

The left has some BS they pull out when questioned. In their world somehow Republicans magically became democrats and those KKK’ers became Republicans.

NAACP starts website to monitor Tea Party for racism

William Amos on September 3, 2010 at 8:53 PM

This represents similar if not the same sort of political double-agent-ing, so to speak (“counter espionage”) that the KKK from the Democrats was created to foster and perpetuate.

That is, the Left forms these groups (KKK, NAACP)…

…the Left forms these groups and then INSINUATES bad characteristics, deeds, PERSONS, upon the Right by creating a cloud around the groups that SUGGEST it is The Right doing the “bad” while it is, indeed, the Left and oftentimes, the Left acting out what they want the public (mostly, gullible voters, people most easily influenced on emotional issues like race, ethnicity, “injustice” and their paychecks, things that can’t often ever be resolved by political parties BUT WHICH *are* the issues that sway votes, then you get a politician afterward like Obama who is incapable of doing much of anything except harm, but he’s — oh — *popular* and sways people emotionally)…

Anyway, the Left forms these counter-operation social movements whereby they act badly and project the bad deeds upon the CHARACTER of the Right, thus discouraging people from associating with the Right (when it’s actually the Left responsible).

THAT was the purpose of the KKK — to create a “scary environment” that SUGGESTED that it was “conservatives” who they then defined as “mean, White people who are also Republicans” to discourage certain voters from associating with that realm of politics.

The Texas Republican Party was founded by Blacks and mostly populated, early on, by Blacks. That popularity among Blacks as to the GOP spread throughout the South and Midwest and the Democrats wanted to so terrorize Blacks (and other Republicans, mostly “tenant farming” Whites or the poorer White people in rural areas who were not land owners, and not well educated or aware politically) that they’d never associate with the GOP and that they would conclude (wrongly) that it was the GOP responsible for the woes and terror upon the Blacks (and poor Whites).

Though the KKK was exposed for the Leftwing, Democrat-fostered wretched group that it was, THE EFFECTS THEY CREATED remain: Blacks by large numbers just assume that the Right, the GOP, are “against them” and “hate poor people” and similar.

So the wrongs that the KKK sought really did take hold in their targeted voter groups: Blacks and the poor, who over time came to wrongly accept the rotten crud that the KKK was attempting to saturate those groups with.

Though the KKK was outed, their rotten plans took hold so today we have these “assumptions” (OR, TO BE BLUNT, PREJUDICE) about the Right by many Blacks and the poor, that the GOP is somehow the bad party while the DNC and their associated political-social groups remain (naively, misleadingly) unquestioned.

Lourdes on September 3, 2010 at 10:27 PM

I remember 1985 not really I do remember it was the begiining of Metallica,duran-duran,lots of hair and leg warmers dont remember too much about the kkk other then maybe throwing things at them when they tried to have rallies in front of city halls ussually attended by oh a dozen klan members and a few hundred klan haters of all colors but then again it was 1985 and I was a 20 yr old pot smoking burn out LOL

What the KKK accomplished (and what was their goal — the night-terror raids were method, not the goal) was the “counter intelligence” social change of misleading the population to wrongly conclude that it was “the Right” who was out there in sheets while it was just the opposite.

They managed to get into the social-assumptions by a lot of people that the sheet-wearing guys (and gals, there were females involved, too, under some of those sheets) were “Republicans” synonymous with “Whites” and “Conservatives” and/or “Christians”…

Just the opposite was true, the reality was it was the Left who created that false impression but for exactly that purpose: to so scare enough voters (or repulse them) about a false image about “the Right” that they’d hate the Right.

While, underneath it was the Left…

Well, perhaps, but that’d only be an aspect of his mental illness. Because, clearly, he’s nuts. Nuts as in, mentally deranged, crazy, off his rocker, bonkers.

He’s an attorney from, where, somewhere up East Coast who is literally in Florida to represent SEIU. The whole appeal (and need by the Democrats) for the area Grayson is currently infecting is due to Disneyworld and the Orlando high-traffic/tourist area, rich with lower-wage earner members in SEIU.

It was a deliberate obfuscation of truth. Glenn Beck has been illustrating this perversion of history by the Progressives.

When Dems realized that they couldn’t claim that blacks weren’t human and beneficiaries of human rights in the Constitution, they portrayed them as helpless victims who could never achieve on their own. That’s how they keep them on the plantation of the Democrat Party.

Most blacks were Republicans well into the 50′s.
