Democratic members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) are ramping up anti-Tea Party sentiment this week, with one congresswoman calling the movement "the real enemy" in Florida on Monday night.
"Let us all remember who the real enemy is. The real enemy is the Tea Party," Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) said at a Miami town hall, according to a report by the Miami Herald. "The Tea Party holds the Congress hostage. They have one goal in mind, and that's to make President Obama a one-term president."
Wilson's comments follow incendiary remarks about the Tea Party from another member of the CBC on Saturday.
This is a tough game. You can't be intimidated. You can't be frightened. And as far as I'm concerned the Tea Party can go straight to hell, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) said at a town-hall-style meeting in California.
Waters, who also attended the town hall in Miami, doubled down on her previous remarks, although she refused to repeat the "hell" line because the meeting took place in a church.
"We're not afraid of the Tea Party," Waters said. "In this struggle, we have to define who we are, what the president is doing and not let our voices be overshadowed by the Tea Party."
The Rev. Jesse Jackson, also participating in the town hall, compared the modern Tea Party movement to opposition to the civil-rights movement. "The Tea Party is a new name on an old game," he said. "Dr. King fought a 'tea party' in Alabama."
What does the CWC say about this?
Hmmmmm, I guess this confirms that the dimoKKKRATS don’t consider RINO’s as the real enemy. They probably just think of them as patsies.
Very well then, ‘rats.
Yep, keep ‘em pickin’ cotton on the ole Democrat plantation.
And a laudable goal it is; pity it can't be achieved immediately.
Being the real enemy of the Congressional Black Caucus is a true badge of honor. It should be worn proudly.
What fraction of USA Revenues come from theft from the TEA Party? If you don’t like them, don’t take their money.
NO the Enemy is the Black caucus ,NAACP and the Black Democrats in general they are useless!
Actually, King battled against the 'Rat Party.
What a great compliment it is to be labelled as the ‘real enemy’ of Communism.
I will wear the badge with honor.
Tea Party is Goldstein.
Let the Two Minutes Hate begin.
I thought we were a nothing group. I wasn’t informed we hold the Congress hostage.
And where’s all the civility from the socialist left? That’s such hateful rhetoric.
Of Course we are the real enemy because we are connecting with the American People and the old Big Government Socialists can’t stand it.
No, that is not our one goal. That is merely a necessary pre-condition for achieving our actual goal, which is the restoration in the United States of a constitutional republic dedicated to the preservation of human liberty, a government with limited and defined powers, and a vibrant free market.
RINOs know their place on the democrat plantation.
Bring it on, you Jackasses!....We’re fighting you for this country!
Yeah, not a lot of racist southern democrats in the Tea Party.
Let’s just say it’s our “immediate goal”, because that must be achieved before anything else can be.
