    Sounds like Carter is race baiting and promoting racism to rally support to his cause, which makes him a ****ing scumbag in my book.

    You're seriously suggesting there's members of congress who wish to hang blacks from a tree? I figure the part he found wrong was pretty obvious

    admittedly, he is engaging in some strong 'hanging on a tree' hyperbole
    but the tea party does not have much color ... unless we agree that white is a color


    in the three events i have attended the people of color i observed were either selling concessions or picking up trash
    the singular other example was some black politician wannabe who spoke yet made no sense. he fit right in with the other teabaggers*


    [*gonna "miss" rev not being around to take exception to that term]
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed

    First, its not shocking in the least that one of the loudest people on this forum bitching, moaning, and decrying the Republicans for "Violent language" and "hateful rhetoric", blaming the shooting of Gabby Giffords on Conservative speech is clapping along with this like a cheerleader. Hyper partisans make themselves clear all the time.

    Second, I agree with tucker. Its clear race baiting and an extremely tactless and disrespectful representation from a public servent. Stating ones opinion based on balatant lies masquarading as truth concerning something so over the top as lynchings in an aim to score political points is disgusting.

    Third, whoop te do. Stupid politician says something controversial and shows they're a scum bag. He's at worst a representative of scum bags and attempting to smear an entire ideology over this boneheads jackass statements...and those who churtle right along with it calling it "valid" and suggesting its reasonable to suggest members of Congress want to lynch black people....is just not right. Condemn the asshole that said it and those foolish enough to join in on his bafoonery, but don't paint with such a big branch.

    Frankly, if this jackass and those like him want to think such a ridiculous and plainly bull**** statement to suit their own hatefilled, bigoted, hyper partisan world views let them. Doesn't change what reality really is, and just shows the type of people they really are. There's no real big reason to start a fit when dumbass politicians act like dumbass politicians and when ridiculous hyper partisans act like ridiculous hyper partisans. Its par for the course for them and why they should roundly be ignored.

    People should be free to say what they wish, just as this man was. Hell, they shouldn't just be free to do it. They absolutely should do it. We need people suggesting that Congressmen want to lynch blacks, or that such a statement is valid, or that such a statement is obvious because a few idiots carried around signs....how else are we supposed to see the portion of society whose not even worthy of spending a second of brain power to listen to?

    I'd like to point out that I was one of the loudest people decrying the violent rhetoric. I also recognize that this is simply another example of such scumbaggery.

    I am sorry but I do not understand that comment one bit. Are you oblivious to the obvious racist signs and shirts at tea party events which have been reproduced on this site and others?

    There's nothing factual in his "observations", that's the point. We've had thread after thread asking to see all of these "racist signs" that people who attend the Tea Party events supposedly carry. Each and every time, folks fall short of providing said proof. Just because there is a sign here or a sign there doesn't mean that the Tea Party is racist, not even remotely close. Should we label the entire left as being racist because the NAACP, the Black Panthers, the New Black Panthers, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and others support them? No, I didn't think so. I live in the deep south and I've seen blacks, whites, hispanics, muslims, men, women, young, old and in-between at the events I've attended. Are the majority of the Tea Partiers white? Yes they are, but just because they are mostly white doesn't mean that they are racist. By that logic, the NBA is racist against whites, the NFL is racist against black quarterbacks, FFA (Future Farmers of America) is racist, NASCAR is racist, Formula One is racist, the NHL is racist and the PGA is racist. The pathetic argument that they are racist because they are mostly white is lame at best.

    Show me the members of Congress that want blacks to be hung from a tree. Don't tiptoe around it, either spell it out or drop it. This is nothing more than fearmongering, something I only thought the republicans were guilty of -

    As I just stated, this has been debunked over and over and over again. Repeating the same lies over and over again does not make it true.

    Canadians aren't really people, so it's not really racist since the sport is primarily non-people.
