Video: Dems accuse Tea Party of wanting minorities “hanging on a tree,” “at war” with a black President

posted at 9:25 am on August 31, 2011 by Ed Morrissey

What happens when your entire political philosophy is so discredited that you can’t even make a coherent argument for it any longer? If you’re Rep. Andre Carson (D-IN), it’s simple — you just call your opponents who are winning the debate “racists” and accuse them of being comfortable with lynching:

A top lawmaker in the Congressional Black Caucus says tea partiers on Capitol Hill would like to see African Americans hanging from trees and accuses the movement of wishing for a return to the Jim Crow era.

Rep. Andre Carson, a Democrat from Indiana who serves as the CBC’s chief vote counter, said at a CBC event in Miami that some in Congress would “love to see us as second-class citizens” and “some of them in Congress right now of this tea party movement would love to see you and me…hanging on a tree.”

It’s not the first time the “Jim Crow” accusation has flown this year. Earlier it was the chair of the DNC, Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, who tossed out that smear, only to shamefacedly retract it when it made national news.   Why?  Because it was reprehensible demagoguery of the worst kind, a fact that was obvious to everyone — or at least obvious to everyone outside the CBC.

Via the Right Scoop, Allen West is now reconsidering his CBC membership:


And for good reason. The civil-rights movement was not a political effort aimed primarily at deficit spending and massive government growth. It was a movement intended to eliminate real and official racial discrimination. Carson’s words are not just evil, they are entirely ignorant and as damaging to the cause of equality as they are to rational political debate. Not only should Carson be reprimanded for his words, he should really be shunned, and hopefully replaced in the next election by voters in his district.

Update: I had initially identified Carson as D-IL, but he is D-IN. I’ve fixed it above.

Ed,

Concerted effort by Democrats to smear Tea Party just days ahead of Palin’s big Tea Party speech in Iowa…I wonder who they really fear.

This is what happens when the entitled class starts to lose their entitlements…

PatriotRider on August 31, 2011 at 9:28 AM

You know, inflation will destroy working and middle class people as well as those below the poverty line. Of course the members of the CBC won’t feel that pain, but their constituents sure will.

rob verdi on August 31, 2011 at 9:28 AM

Not only should Carson be reprimanded for his words, he should really be shunned, and hopefully replaced in the next election by voters in his district.

That’s a good one, Ed. He represents the urban core of Indianapolis. Like all the other gerrymandered fief lords of the CBC, that seat’s his as long as he wants it.

KingGold on August 31, 2011 at 9:29 AM

Sorry to repeat myself, but: The only reason people use such shameless and dishonest tactics as these are because they are allowed to get away with it.

Cylor on August 31, 2011 at 9:29 AM

I cynically still think Valerie Jarrett was watching the London riots and thinking of a blueprint. After all, Obama could be the racial messiah healer. Next summer maybe.

Marcus on August 31, 2011 at 9:29 AM

This is straight up inciting violence. They’re basically begging their constituents to fight (literally). Of course they can’t come out and say it straight up…but they can do it like this.

Don’t be surprised when things get very ugly.

Can we come up with some sort of Godwin’s Law on comparing people who are not racists to racists?

Do you really think a black congressman from a racially gerrymandered district will be replaced?

4th.

It wouldn’t surprise me if that was the endgame, but how does that help their constituents economically or politically? Believe me, if this flash mob epidemic escalates into even 1/10 of what was going on in London, the welfare state will be finished in this country. The 50% of Americans who foot the bill for this nonsense aren’t gonna be too enthused about neighborhoods being burned and looted by folks who have no desire to even look for work or attend school.

He’s only following the status quo.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, who tossed out that smear, only to shamefacedly retract it when it made national news.

Shamefully retract? Hardly:

Jim Crow was the wrong analogy to use. But I don’t regret calling attention to the efforts in a number of states with Republican dominated legislatures, including Florida, to restrict access to the ballot box for all kinds of voters, but particularly young voters, African Americans and Hispanic Americans.

She used her PC brush to paint over her initial statement, but the intent is still there.

Yeah, that was disgraceful. We can sit here and debate the appropriateness of those remarks(I personally think they’re inappropriate when the President is speaking to Congress), but Wilson at least apologized immediately and in the end was vindicated because he turned out to be right.

Unless we start seeing actual lynchings or at the very least dummies of Obama hung in effigy(you know, like libs did with Palin in 2008?), Carson is using incendiary, racist rhetoric to incite people.

Is the same type of thing on steroids the left falsely accuses the Tea Party of? Yes it is. Can we hold the CBC responsible for any violence that erupts from their hateful rhetoric that is clearly intended to incite? Yes we can!

RadClown on August 31, 2011 at 9:47 AM

Know who continues to lose when race baiting, elected hacks spout off racial nonsense and lynchings??????

The black community.

Similiar to Rangels guest spot on BOR with Lauara Ingraham hosting. You know the back and forth banter about plantations and pretty girls… but the money quote was when the scumbag finally answered the question “do liberal policies help or hurt the black community”… answer from Rangel “it hurts them”

So as black politicians, CBC members and every moron on the left decide to play gotcha identity politics towards Reps – black unemployment continues to sky rocket, crime rates up – foreclosures up, etc, etc.

Oh – and they keep getting reelected.

Odie1941 on August 31, 2011 at 9:48 AM

Ha! Wishful thinking for sure! Carson represents my home district, and I can remember passing out campaign literature several times at the polls alongside his…aunt? sister?…one of the late Julia Carson’s close relatives. We had polite conversation, but my family is one of only a handful of Republicans (and Caucasians) in the district, and I was just sort of tolerated at the polls. Nation of Islam seems to be very popular around there, so I don’t think Carson’s constituents are going to be took broken up about this. He’ll probably be there for the rest of his life, like his mother before him.

This is what you get when you elect nearly retarded people as government representatives, and encourage them to organize within congress on the basis of skin color.

Jaibones on August 31, 2011 at 9:54 AM

This seems to be by design. This is why we see random attacks by black people waged against white people across the country over the past several months. I don’t know why blacks are waging this war on white people at this time in our history, but I do feel that it’s on purpose and part of a plan.

White people (really stupid white people) got Obama elected. This is not going to end well. Any leader who talks the way this man is should be trashed by people of all races. There simply is no justification for this type of behavior.

Allen West would get my vote in a heartbeat, and that has nothing to do with the color of his skin. I’m a TP leader here in my community, and I’m not a racist in any way. However I do see pure racism coming from the left on a regular basis. It’s not the TP that are the racist, it’s the modern day Democrats who are displaying racism across the world, let alone in America.

Keemo on August 31, 2011 at 9:55 AM

The irrelevant have become irrelevant, couldn’t happen to a better group of corrupt politicking as in blood sucking, poseurs.

It’s past time to expose these con artist for what they are, scamers, shills, carneys. They all should be primaried. Black unemployment is at 14% and they are pointing the finger of blame at everyone but themselves. They had the majorities in the house and the senate, and the presidency, what did they do? They funneled tax payer money to their cronies. They had every opportunity since Obama was elected to do something about unemployment in this country. Minorities need to wake up in their districts, and replace them. They aren’t worried about anyone’s job but their own. I don’t believe they can’t find capable black candidates that are not so freaking corrupt to run and win in their districts.

People get the government they deserve Thomas Jefferson.

Overall, 42% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the president’s performance. Fifty-seven percent (57%) at least somewhat disapprove.

From Rasmussen today. You can bet White House internals are much worse. This is being coordinated by, from, and lauded by Barack and his minions there on Pennsylvania Avenue.

The true racists are outing themselves. The more they cry racist (wolf) without even a kernel of truth, the more they are ignored. What the NAACP ignores is that true racism is happening but it does not help them politically. They call out American citizens with obvious lies and ignore the corruption they are surrounded by and swimming in. NAACP is no longer the watchdog for the people, they are now the attack dogs for the Progressives. The Tea Party is fighting against Progressives, color is not the issue. Progressives do not want to debate the real issues so they must change the subject and smear those who do. Let us debate socialism/capitalism, collectivism/individualism, statism/liberty, large central government/small local government, American citizenship/citizenship of the world etc., these are the true issues.

These creatures have turned public service, into a dodge, a scam, a con. Apparently when they went home on congressional break they got an ear full from the constituents in their districts. These politickians don’t serve their communities they leech off of them. Primary every last one of them till they are replaced with people who will do more than feather their own nest at the expense of their districts. Every last one of these yayhoos should be primaried. They need to find out what it’s like to stand in the unemployment line.

Dr Evil on August 31, 2011 at 10:03 AM

We only get this because the GOP has allowed this protected racism under the victim label to exist without serious challenge.

It would be well to have a GOP candidate to call for a national TV symposium on the politics of racism, one where the Democratic party might be held accountable for its institutionalized racism and sytematic control of the black community for voting power.

Is slavery still the excuse for keeping the black community hogtied at the National leftist nipple? Will they ever be allowed the dignity of reasonable expectations instead of soft racism?

Can the left explain its choice of an unknown,inexperienced black man as presidental candidate, if it wasn’t based upon race?

Why did the very liberal Geraldine say it was because of race?

Why do they tolerate the any use of race card if they really want to move off of the color of one’s skin?

Why don’t the Dems support vouchers for the black community?

Why do the Dems support disproportionate abortion of blacks?

The questions alone would be an national embarrasment to them, but who would dare ask them -none on the right?

And every single member of the CBC should be asked, on camera, if they support Carson’s statements. In fact, any Dem congress critter should be forced to repudiate this crap.

I’m not sure where or who I kept this quote from but it was posted during the first round of racism smears:

The accusations of “racism” and “violent extremism” by the Left are not merely slander.

I believe what we’re seeing here is the same thing you see in a bar or on the street when a stranger starts hurling insults – because he’s nerving himself up to assault you.

It looks to me like they’re proactively preparing the “you had it coming” justification.

A few days ago in the Chicago Tribune:

An investigator for Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn’s human rights agency got a slap on the wrist for forwarding an e-mail before last November’s election that contended the Republican Party had been hijacked by “dangerous, radical hate mongers called the ‘Tea Party.’”

The e-mail, sent on a state computer, claimed talk show host Glenn Beck and former GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin led the tea party effort to “take down President Obama and the government.”

Don’t expect the rhetoric to stop or be challenged by the liberal “civility” police or the media.

Fallon on August 31, 2011 at 10:08 AM

…that some in Congress would “love to see us as second-class citizens” and “some of them in Congress right now of this tea party movement would love to see you and me…hanging on a tree.”

you are right, congressman, and they are called liberal democrats. you seem to forget it was democrats that lynched black people in the first place. LBJ had to twist the arms of the democrats to get them on board with civil rights, so “those [people] will be voting for us for the next 200 years”. But LBJ didnt use the word “people”. it is the democrats that keep you on the liberal plantation, but it insures your faithful vote.

abcurtis on August 31, 2011 at 10:08 AM

Dr Evil on August 31, 2011 at 9:55 AM

Good post, I’ll go one step further.

MOrtgage companies and banks were forced to offer loans that no one could possibly afford. Part of that whole “equality in housing BS”, of which many lost their homes, are just stopped paying – killing what credit they have. Now, 3+ years later – either still getting some bogus Gov handout, not leaving their home illegally – or lost that home, possesions – and of course the upper teens unemployment occurred at the same time.

So the very “efforts” of those so-called “black leaders” have done and continue to do nothing but basterdize their own gullible populous, all in the name of “blame thaose racist whities”

See – I am all for those reaping what they sew, including their own cannibalization.

So at the end of the day – when power, money, possesions and ability to move upward are thwarted by the very skin colored Reps they elect; its called a result. Unfortunately a bad one they supported.

It’s inconceivable to them that Obama could be incompetent, much less deliberately bringing this economy and system of government down. They would never recognize competency because they lack it themselves. Let’s move ahead, they are always going to be victims.

There is a larger issue here. Our first affirmative action president is a true dumb ass who got ahead in life with to no effort. This is the reason he hates being president, he finally has to work and he doesn’t know how to work. He was never expected to work so he never learned how.

So he becomes a major indictment of affirmative action and the race hustlers are terrified of the long term results of this.

Alan Clomes on Fox News continues to say that tea party people spat on John Lewis. The man has become a loon in my book

Yes, it was pitiful to listn to him try to spin the “hanging from a tree” last night on O’Reilly. Of course, he countered with the tired old “gunsights” defense. The straw man just keeps getting busier and busier. Colmes uses it constantly as he employs that maddening smirk of his.

The questions alone would be an national embarrassment to them, but who would dare ask them -none on the right?

You’re on the money. Leftists use racist politics because we let it work for them, because we cower instead of returning fire.

It will be interesting to see if the President makes a statement on this. The heck with whether or not it would be the right thing to do; he has to calculate if he loses more by possibly alienating part of his base or by pissing off independents.

Someone needs to run the numbers on the CBC folks. Their constituents need to know how much their Rep’s personal wealth has increased in relation to the decrease in their constituent’s personal wealth’s decrease.

They can start with Franklin Raines and Fannie Mae.

Blacks are being pressured to hate white people, and unions are preparing their members for violence/war. This seems obvious as we have all watched the behavior on display in Wisconsin. Police officers (unionized) stood by and allowed criminal acts to take place in front of their eyes. Here in my area, we have been discussing plans for civil unrest/violence coming our way from union members for quite some time now. I live in an area where bus loads of union thugs could over power our 6-officers in a moment. We have to have such talks as we live in a rural area where the civilians are pretty much on their own if violence breaks out.

I’m afraid of what I see, as the community organizer himself told his people to get in their faces.

How immature and intellectually dishonest…

Evidently the CBC didn’t get Barry’s ‘civility’ memo.

Let ‘em rant and rave. Only more visible proof of their hypocrisy. Not that it bothers them. But it does undermine any remaining credibility they once had.

I am guessing that every member of CBC voted yay on TARP. That means they used tax payer money to bailout Freddie and Fannie. When it came time for finance regulation reform Freddie and Fannie still haven’t gone through any reform. They still have their hands out for more tax payer money. Those folks in the CBC’s districts are hurting, but they don’t get it their representatives are feeding at the corporate troughs, and they aren’t going to do anything to jeopardize their seat on the gravy train. Primary them all- every last one of them, it’s not like they could elect worse representation than they already have.

This isn’t about race – this is about corruption.

Today’s Democrat Party.

Scary, aren’t they?
