Democrat turns up the “civility” with vile and racist characterization of Tea Party

It is incredibly frustrating to watch adults act and talk like this idiot and learn they’re in Congress:

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.”

Not only is that vile; not only is it racist to its core; not only does it make a claim based on nothing but that fool’s prejudices, but it is overtly hostile to any sort of climate for rational debate.

It is the very definition of irrationality.  But it seems to have become the hallmark of some of the members of the Congressional Black Caucus. 

When questioned, here’s the staff’s answer to their Congressman’s bit of race hate:

The explosive comments, caught on tape, were uploaded on the Internet Tuesday, and Carson’s office stood by the remarks. Jason Tomcsi, Carson’s spokesman, said the comment was “in response to frustration voiced by many in Miami and in his home district in Indianapolis regarding Congress’s inability to bolster the economy.” Tomcsi, in an email, wrote that “the congressman used strong language because the Tea Party agenda jeopardizes our most vulnerable and leaves them without the ability to improve their economic standing.

“The Tea Party is protecting its millionaire and oil company friends while gutting critical services that they know protect the livelihood of African-Americans, as well as Latinos and other disadvantaged minorities,” Tomcsi wrote. “We are talking about child nutrition, job creation, job training, housing assistance, and Head Start, and that is just the beginning. A child without basic nutrition, secure housing, and quality education has no real chance at a meaningful and productive life.”

Bullspit.  What the Congressman was doing was stirring up race hate and trying to use it as a weapon to thwart a political opponent’s agenda.  Obviously unable to confidently and competently argue his side, he’s reduced to summoning up the ghost of Jim Crow and lynching’s.

People like Andre Carson have no place representing anyone in Congress.  He’s certainly not a statesman, and in fact, he’s simply another in a long line of race baiters that use the fact that a district is predominantly black to get themselves elected and then, with a national platform, spread their hate.   It is time that voters demanded more from their elected representatives.  Race baiting is no more acceptable from a black representative of the people than it is from a white one.   And those who continue to display this sort of behavior need to be shown the exit by their constituents.  Atlanta did it by booting Cynthia McKinney who hailed from a predominantly black district and engaged in the same sort of behavior.  It’s time Indianapolis made a statement too.

This sort of behavior and talk is no longer acceptable from anyone.

  • Is it racist to deny a child a “GI Joe with the KungFu grip” if you already owe $250,000 to the credit card companies and your Chinese landlord is threatening to evict you from your house ?

  • “It is incredibly frustrating to watch adults act and talk like this idiot and learn they’re in Congress:

    This is why our founding fathers, wise and sophisticated men experienced in the ways of the world, made ours a limited government with enumerated powers and limits.

    • What’s even more incredible is that Congress-One Carson wasn’t actually talking about the “Tea Party” by rather those members of Congress affiliated with the “Tea Party.”   If he had uttered those same words on the House floor, he would have been censured.

  • Yeah, this liar is one of the guys who made the “spitting” libel during the ObamaCare vote.
    He is beneath dog shit.  If memory serves, he is a Black Muslim.

  • “The Tea Party is protecting its millionaire and oil company friends while gutting critical services that they know protect the livelihood of African-Americans, as well as Latinos…”

    Yeah?  Name one.  Name a single gutted program that the TEA Party is responsible for.

  • Since when is “Tea Party” a race? Or are you just acknowledging the fact that it’s a white movement?

  • I’ll say it again. They’re provoking. They WANT an incident to happen. Then they can really let loose. And I’m not even joking when I say I believe that if something doesn’t happen, they’ll create an incident if they have to.  Just look at how they wet their pants trying to link Giffords shooting to Tea Party/Palin/Conservatives within MINUTES. And of course, the myth (excuse me I mean LIE) of tea partiers shouting epithets at black members of congress. So desperate for anything to happen.

    But I’ll tell you what- if a guy like this gets caught up in an incident he’s so obviously trying to incite……

    • What else do they have?
      We are out of money. The economy is gone. They are just praying for one more roll of the dice.

  • McQPeople like Andre Carson have no place representing anyone in Congress. 


    I disagree: the man is perfect to represent the democrats.  He demonstrates their hateful, stupid, racist ideology quite well.  Think of him as a 21st century version of “Pitchfork” Ben Tillman.

  • The culture of racism is the culture of stupidity. It abounds in the ghetto, the barrio, the trailer parks, and DC.
    That mentality, racked in denial, misses, for example,one of their previous lies; that being the “Reagan Budget Cuts for welfare”, when in fact, welfare spending rose faster than defense spending. But it’s easier to shove one’s head up ones anal cavity.

  • Carson’s district ends 2 blocks from my home, thank God.  He is the idiot grandson of the former long-time Representative for the district, Julia Carson.  The turd doesn’t fall far from the bird.  He was handed the seat, a safe majority-minority district, and has been pandering ever since. I don’t think he has ever had a private sector job. The only reason to keep him, and other of the same mindset, in office are as shining examples of what we are up against, a government entitlement begging machine. The more he opens his mouth, the the more converts the small government side stands to gain.

  • “…some of them in Congress right now …” Ok name them. “A child without basic nutrition, secure housing, and quality education has no real chance at a meaningful and productive life.” Perhaps but why is it the responsibility of the federal government to provide these things?
