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.

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.

I think you’re right. I wouldn’t rule out anything with these creeps.

Didn’t Allen West insist on joining the CBC? I’d love it if he brought a widely publicized motion to rebuke this guy in the CBC. I’d like to see the CBC vote it down.

BuckeyeSam on August 31, 2011 at 10:04 AM

One or more of the Freshmen Tea Party backed Congressmen should bring a motion on the House floor to rebuke this officially.

Surely, they must know the white guilt vote is long gone and not to be resurrected. If they are sinking this low to reinvigorate the black racist vote, how panicked must they be?

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

petefrt on August 31, 2011 at 10:12 AM

The left has been exploiting this for years as part of the pretense that they’re on the side of those “hardest-hit” women, minorities, and poor.

Are they using it more lately because Obama is president, or is it the Internet that’s exposing it more?

I have to think the independents will be starting to recognize this garbage for what it is, and they won’t be cowering in the voting booths next November.

As to Colmes on O’Reilly, I watched that too and he looked like a man doing a paid shtick as the token liberal who wasn’t even persuading himself.

Drained Brain on August 31, 2011 at 10:36 AM

Sorry Ed, but by 1967 the Civil Rights Movement had gone beyond the idea of ending discrimination and had become an entitlement movement with goals like guaranteed annual income,affirmative action.and federal spending for jobs in the inner city.LBJ’s Great Society only whetted the appetite of those in the movement for MORE.The praiseworthy days of the civil rights era had already ended by the summer of 67.

Andre Carson (D-Ind), 2009

Net Worth: From $-81,996 to $44,999
Rank: 422nd in House
Assets: 4 totaling $18,004 to $95,000
Liabilities: 1 totaling $50,001 to $100,000
Transactions: 0
Agreements: 0
Compensation: 0
Income: 1 totaling $72,000

Apparently he thinks he’s in a safe seat and won’t face a challenge. Not in this economy. I wonder what his net worth is now?

I think I’ll go tell my Tea Partier black co-worker — the one who thinks that the Democrats have used and damaged his people — that Andre Carson says he should carry out his wish and lynch himself ASAP.

unclesmrgol on August 31, 2011 at 10:52 AM

Yeah it will be bad.

But you know what?

We have been through a lot this past 10 years and we will get through this too.

We should all be using this time to think, plan and prepare. Think about what they are planning to spring on us and how it can be turned aside. Not just personal defense, but also prepare to be the glue in your communities to hold our society together at every level and steer toward a positive, healthy future beyond the storm.

.02 cents

perries on August 31, 2011 at 10:56 AM

I have 2 points, first of all, I believe Carson is yelling fire in a crowded theater. Just a thought.

Secondly, on Debbie Wasserman-Schultz comments about Jim Crow, do the Democrats understand how many things you can’t do without a picture I.D.? You can’t fly, you can’t buy a gun, you can’t drive a car, you can’t purchase cigarettes, you can’t buy liquor, all of which require identification. Also, you can’t cash a check without being able to establish your identity. So, it’s people like Debbie who are trying to create a permanent under-class in this country by not getting them picture i.d.

If I were the Republicans, I’d have a bus go through every poor area the Democrats are trying to protect and tell them they’ll take them to get a picture i.d. and pay for it. The Democrats can go to Hell, to quote a famous COngressperson on the tea party.

Vote Republican and only be called a racist one more time.

txsurveyor on August 31, 2011 at 11:02 AM

unclesmrgol – your co-worker sure is right about that.

This plan of incitement is so abusive and deceitful toward the people who blindly put faith and loyalty in these leaders. The speakers desire to betray their listeners into evil actions. brr so creepy.

But it also reveals the weakness of dependency in the ones who listen to this – believing without question the manipulative lies of the one who is, for all practical purposes, your master. Acting on those lies – not what I would want on my own conscience. So I hope the consciences of the people will stir.

imo, all we take with us at the end of life is the record of our words and deeds. When it comes time to hand in the homework, this is not what I would want to be showing.

I received a call from a political pollster a few days ago and the intent was clearly to paint a picture of the Tea Party as evangelicals who wanted a revolution. A violent revolution. A few years ago, this might have worked. They are desparate.
The left is going all out on this.

ORconservative on August 31, 2011 at 11:03 AM

The man is supported by trial lawyers and unions. I would be disappointed in him, if he didn’t make unsupportable vile accusations.

What is the RNC doing to find a challenger to run against him next year?

ORconservative on August 31, 2011 at 11:03 AM

that’s the progressive left meme the TEA party is just the Christian right…uh no it’s not.

The TEA party movement is made up of disenfranchised Democrats, think PUMAS, Independents, Libertarians, and Republicans. The main focus of the movement, is small limited government, conservative fiscal policy. Which both threaten the big government, welfare state pimps, in the CBC. If the Christian right align themselves with the TEA Party movement’s values ‘that’s their right as free people living in a free country. They have the right to free association. If they didn’t, there never would have been a civil rights movement, that also organised, because of the right to free association. The TEA party is a populist grassroots movement going by the last election that saw a 700 seat change across the country, the largest sweep in the last 70 years. I would describe the TEA party movement as the “majority” Simply put the American Middle Class. Trying to paint the TEA party as a far right wing fringe, because some align themselves with the movement, doesn’t change what the TEA party stands for. Middle Class Americans know who they are, and they are allowed to free associate just like American minorities are allowed to free to associate. For example in Mr Carson’s case, with Unions and Trial Lawyers.

The Big Government era is over it ended in the 90s. This is just the desperate that can’t change – transition to the new global economy. Big government was their security blanket they are afraid of real change, and cling to the nostalgia of big government’s hay day from FDR to LBJ.

If any of these so called public servants in the CBC had any sense of the American public’s mood, they would get on the right side of the TEA party. But they don’t, they can’t adapt, assimilate, they are dead enders. These are the survivors of the mid term election, and their over reaching while in the majority, reduced their numbers, and have made them impotent. This isn’t going to attract any of the Independent vote back to the democrats, they need the Independents to win elections. I don’t think they appreciate being called racist, that want to lynch anyone.

So Rep. Andre Carson says that the Tea Party, which is an ad-hoc group composed of all races and which advocates freedom and fiscal responsibility, is racist???

But doesn’t this imply that Andre Carson thinks that all blacks are anti-freedom and fiscally irresponsible? This narrow-minded and prejudiced thinking by Andre Carson is DEFINITELY RACIST!!!

Pitiful isn’t it? They are using the theory that if you can’t win the argument with facts you just need to scream louder.

Some of our Tea Party groups need to bring a law suit against them for SLANDER and Defamation of Character.

SgtRed on August 31, 2011 at 11:49 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.

Reprimanded. Excoriated. Chastised.

The list could go on, and on. It is reprehensible, disgusting, juvenile, and stupid. This man should not be a representative. He brings shame to his district, his state, his country.

This is the sound of Democrats who see their base slipping away. They can’t point to Obama’s successes, because there aren’t any to speak of, so they’ve retreated to spread hate toward the Tea Party. The problem is that the tea party is a large and diverse group of people who the Democrats have railed against from the first and still don’t have them right. The only common theme I’ve noticed is that those attending tea party rallies are opposed to out of control spending and higher taxes. Beyond that they are, as I say, diverse. One thing they aren’t is racist, despite all the efforts made to pin that on them. I haven’t seen any evidence of that. Some of the most popular people with the tea parties are Herman Cain, Marco Rubio and Allen West. Rep. Carson is nothing but an old fashioned race baiting Demagogue. He needs to be curbed.

flataffect on August 31, 2011 at 11:55 AM

These and other viscous extra-political attacks on the Tea Party are happening now for a reason.

While the attacks could just simply be the result of unchecked ignorance, bigotry, and selfish emotions, given the timing and sources, these disgusting diatribes could be part of an effort designed to whip up anti-Tea Party race riots.

They certainly are not intended to engender a rational discussion of Tea Party ideas versus their own ideas… They don’t want to discuss or debate, they want something else.

The arrogance of reinforced ignorance and the desperation that comes from it are apparent in these speakers and is palpable.

There is no appeal to rational thought or ideas, the Constitution, sound economics, etc. – just the deep, raw, dangerous emotions associated with ‘”THEY” hate “US” and “THEY” are trying to hurt and kill “US”‘ that they want to generate, implant, and direct against the Tea Party.

These public officials are, with malice aforethought, creating (or at least are attempting to create) a very dangerous situation. It is important to find out exactly who is guiding their actions, why they are doing so, and what exactly they are planning.

DrDeano on August 31, 2011 at 11:56 AM

It is not that these things have been said that bothers me, it is the fact that the speakers felt comfortable saying such things in public that worries and angers me. The audience is receptive to this and that is the larger problem than what some idiot thinks of the Tea Party.

This is just part of the 0bama regime’s plan:

Insider: Hell yes-yes… it can work. It’s not gonna come so easy as it did in 2008, but that’s why they plan to ramp it up – the race issue. Look, you got generations of voters in this country who have been hammered with guilt for being white. Schools, television, movies…decades of this racism s–t coming at them from all sides. White guilt is very real. I’ve used it-done it myself… countless times in an election campaign. And for Barack Obama…his re-election team – they are banking on it bringing victory in 2012. Even if it means the threat of race riots. They are willing to go that far – go down that road if need be. If the Obama team can’t guilt enough of White America into voting for them in 2012 – they are just fine with trying to scare the s–t out of them to do it.

Muslim complicity in racism?

The black loss of life in the ivory and spice trades run by Omani Arabs out of Zanzibar, was millions larger than anything the south(tobacco or cotton) could have possibly have caused.In fact the pontificating Northeast (Connecticut -Deep River and Ivoryton) were responsible for the loss of millions of black lives-many years after the emancipation Proclamation became a reality.

But, for black politicians to ignore the Democratic Party’s historic role in racism/slavery (and ignore the black slavery of the soul to the Nanny state it now sponsors)is the ultimate in hypocrisy. Though, as the entire world knows, for Democrats, hypocrisy is the highest badge of honor (any means to an end -thanks Mr. Lucifer)

Don L on August 31, 2011 at 12:44 PM

Many of the folks on this and many other conservative boards are, sadly, prejudiced or anti-black, that been said, the Democratic party has set race relations back 40 years by trivializing real racism.

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”

He’s right. There are some people in Congress who would love to see blacks as second-class citizens.

Those people are called “progressive” Democrats. They need to keep blacks on the entitlement plantation, because if blacks stray from the plantation and start thinking for themselves, they won’t vote for the Democratic ticket anymore.

I’m not saying this is what it is, but it might be — psychological projection. That is, he wants blacks to control whites in the same way whites controlled blacks in the South under Jim Crow, and he’s projecting that desire of his onto Tea Party whites who he disagrees with. That is, it has nothing to do with Tea Party whites, but rather, with something inside himself. I bring this up because one has to wonder, what other explanation can there be for his mental state? What is the nature of his mental and emotional life that he would say such a thing? To me, projection is the most obvious explanation.

I’m going to make a prediction. Democrats are going to make the 2012 election about race and hate. The backlash, exasperated by the depression, will be viscous. Looks like we’re going to have that talk about race after all.

Going back to my favorite playbook of shoving the left’s tactics back down their throats, every single elected democrat is now responsible for the words of this man.

Every one of them needs to be shown the video or read the words this racist used and asked to agree or disagree with them. Every one of them that disagrees with these words needs to then be asked if they’ve denounced this racist publicly.

It would be interesting because someone like nancy pelosi wouldn’t be able to help herself agreeing with every word he uttered. This is what I’d like to see, but the questions will never be asked, we all know this.

Congressional Black Caucus: 43 – 1 reasons to support the TEA Party with money and action.
.
The – 1 reason is Rep. Alan West, God love him, who is the only sane individual in this entitlement-crazed, race-baiting, white-hating bunch.
.
*spits*

I misspelled Allen West – apologies to the Congressman.

ExpressoBold on August 31, 2011 at 1:30 PM

Don’t forget they’ve also called for civil unrest and runs on banks. These people want violence in the streets.

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

Racist is as racist does. The left owns the majority share.

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.

Yep.

Ulsterman is your source? The same Ulsterman that:

1. Is an anonymous blogger using an anonymous insider using anonymous sources.

2. Has been caught lying no less than seven times.

3. Had no idea the birth certificate was going to be released.

4. Said Geithner was leaving on Feb 4th and now says he very much wants to leave.

5. Hints that Obama is gay, which, according to you, is the favorite tactic of progressive homosexual activists.

How’s this for a “tinfoil hat” theory – They are setting up the groundwork for, when the GOP sweeps the 2012 elections – they will move their states out of the union, install 0bama as their “president”, and implement a full out progressive constitution.

Rebar on August 31, 2011 at 12:39 PM

Oh my!

That’s the same “tinfoil hat” theory that you embrace, except you declared Perry as a lock for your President.

Seems the left’s wishcasting capabilities are on par with your own.

rukiddingme on August 31, 2011 at 2:22 PM

Given all the rope they need, bigots like this chump hang themselves with their own asinine comments.

Thank you for the link to the “Insider” that everyone is so frantically trying to discredit in the blogosphere. Whether you believe Ulsterman’s Insider or not, the proof is showing up EVERYWHERE. Chrissy Matthews, Schultz, this race baiter in Indiana, Garawfulho, Alligator Barbie, etc., etc., etc.

It’s an insidious plan that, hopefully, the American people will see through. But the electorate did elect an un-vetted incompetent with a suspiciously sealed past.

We could easily defeat the whole racist meme and give people who’ve been taught to rely on their victimhood status a new outlook on how to take advantage of the American Dream by having Herman Cain as our nominee. It would be SO effective and SO great for the country to have an optimistic, successful, businessman, America-loving, political-outsider, mathematician, brilliant leader like Cain as president after this current catastrophe. I’m praying for people support him.

Click the center image on the Herman Cain link above to watch Cain skewer Clinton over errors in his Hillary care math back in the day. The man is the real deal.

The long year will be fun to observe, and dangerous.

Carson is just a pathetic tool used by the elitests to deflect the truth from the public arena. Racial hatred has always been the mainstay for democrats. Without racial hatred and vitriole the democrats could not exist. What this fool and the fools who pay any attention to him can’t comprehend is the Tea Party is the economy. The fact that more blacks are awaking to the truth about the Tea Party and its scaring the elitests to the point of panic. I guess this is what happens when you turn your public educational systems over to a labor union. Can you imagine what the psyche of voters is that would elect someone with ignorance on Carson’s level? Ignorance on this level should be against the law.

There is one more TEA party member from South Carolina who refused to join the CBC.

Yep I am talking about Rep Tim Scott, he’s busy building the TEA party base. I hope he replaces all those gold brickers with people who remember who they serve.

Hint: Mr Carson it’s “We The People” not we the trial lawyers or we the unions.

Rep Allen West is reconsidering his membership to the CBC. Can’t say I blame him, he doesn’t have anything in common with those career hucksters.

To Black Democrats:

“You shall not bare false witness to you neighbor”

Andre Carson is a Muslim, might he possibly realize that without Islam Blacks would have suffered about half the amount of slavery they have? How about hitting up some imams for reparations?

Speakup on August 31, 2011 at 12:22 PM

One of islam’s greatest propaganda victories was their convincing American blacks that islam was the religion of their ancestors.

slickwillie2001 on August 31, 2011 at 6:34 PM

Note to Rep. Carson: This HALF-Black (and half white) president is at war with America.
