Alan Grayson Flaunts His Ignorance
Alan Mark Grayson is the United States Representative for Florida's 9th congressional district and a member of the Democratic Party. And he is dumb as a bag of hammers.
In an October 22 fund-raising email, Grayson likened the Tea Party to the Ku Klux Klan, which in so many ways is the full Godwin. But the joke is on Grayson. And I mean beyond the mere guffaw. I'm talking about thigh slapping, horse laugh, have to take a breath before laughing again so hard you can barely control yourself.
Because Grayson is a Democrat. The Ku Klux Klan was the vicious thug wing of the Democratic Party. You know, that political party which endorsed the KKK, refused to recognize the 14th Amendment? The political party that encouraged the KKK to attack and kill Republicans and blacks. That encouraged the KKK to burn down Republican offices, attack Republican homes, lynch blacks and in all ways try and destroy the Reconstruction of the South. Grayson's historical root stock.
No less an authority than historian David Barton says in his book 'Setting the Record Straight: American History in Black & White' that not only did the Democrats work hand-in-glove with the Ku Klux Klan for generations, they started the KKK and endorsed its mayhem.
Grayson condemns himself and his own Party through his ignorant, inflammatory comparison of the Tea Party to the Ku Klux Klan by brining once again to memory that it is the Democrats who worked tirelessly to keep African-Americans in chains and advocated brutal violence against any who challenged Democrat thuggery. (one might say that tradition continues)
Thank you for bringing this again into the cold light of history, Rep. Grayson. Rarely in the annals of political numbskullery (and that's saying a lot) has one man managed to so completely disgrace himself with facts and resurrect the one thing the Democrats yearn to hide.
Their history between 1848 and 1900.
