Tea Party Meeting Tonight, 2nd Burning Cross on the Right, White Attire Optional

Is the Tea Party similar to the KKK?

I always thought they were a bunch of conservatives protesting taxes and the corrupt federal government, but according to Florida Democrat Alan Grayson, the two groups are just like two peas in a pod.  Identical twins separated at birth. Sisters from another mister. You get the idea.

In a fundraising email, Grayson’s supporters seem to think he is blunt rather than offensive.

The email, which went out to supporters yesterday, shows a burning cross — complete with images of two KKK-like figures in the background — used as the “T” in “tea party.” When users click on the image, they’re taken to a fundraising landing page for Grayson’s campaign.

The text of the email is an excerpt from an interview Grayson did with the Rev. Al Sharpton, in which he draws the tea party-KKK comparison.

“At this point, the tea party is no more popular than the Klan,” Grayson says in the interview.

The email praises Grayson’s bluntness and urges supporters to donate to his campaign.

“Congressman Alan Grayson deserves your support, like no one else,” the email says. “He, and only he, is saying the things that you are thinking, and so much need to be said.” (source)

The Tea Party has been the favorite whipping boy for Democrats and liberals for quite some time. Less than an hour after the horrific Boston Marathon Bombing, analysts were already casting blame at the Tea Party and other Patriot groups. (source) If you want to paint a picture of a wild-eyed radical right-winger, the mainstream media needs to look no further than the Tea Party for their illustrations.

Matt Gorman of the National Republican Congressional Committee harshly condemned Grayson’s statements, calling upon House Democrats to return the money he has raised for them with his “hate-filled rhetoric.”

Grayson doesn’t seem to be perturbed by the outcry, reiterating his point in a statement:

Grayson defended the email in a statement Tuesday afternoon, saying the tea party has long used racist and insensitive terms and imagery to refer to African Americans, President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, and gays.

“[T]here is overwhelming evidence that the Tea Party is the home of bigotry and discrimination in America today, just as the KKK was for an earlier generation,” Grayson said. “If the shoe fits, wear it.” (source)

Hmmm…who exactly is disseminating hate here? If I didn’t think that I might sound like a Tea Partier or a KKK member, I’d suggest that this is a clear case of the Mr. Grayson ‘pot” calling the “kettle” black. (Can I say “black” on the internet?)
