Rep. Carson: Tea party wants to see African Americans ‘hanging on a tree’
Washington Post ^ | 10:06 PM ET, 08/30/2011 | Felicia Sonmez

Posted on 08/31/2011 12:25:56 AM PDT by newzjunkey

A leading member of the Congressional Black Caucus is standing by incendiary language he used at a recent town hall when he charged that tea-party aligned members of Congress view African Americans as “second-class citizens” and would like to see them “hanging on a tree.”

Rep. Andre Carson’s (D-Ind.) office confirmed that the lawmaker made the remarks at an Aug. 22 CBC Job Tour event in Miami and said that the comments were “prompted in response to frustration voiced by many in Miami and in his home district in Indianapolis regarding Congress’ inability to bolster the economy.” …

No, they black Congressmen are not “second class citizens”; they are, in fact, privileged.

OTOH, they are third rate intellects, at best.

What will Obama have to say about it? Will even one Democrat will repudiate his accusations? Will the press demand he name names of those in congress he says favors lynching blacks?

Carson's one of two who accused Tea Party protestors of ObamaCare of hurling "racial epithets" at them back in March 2010.

They curve bullets in the air when they shoot! They can dodge bullets, too! And stop time! And teleport! It's crazy, man.

This kind of tactic is just getting warmed up. The Democrats don't have solutions, they can't defend their record nor can they discuss issues. So everything is personalities and racism. That's fine with the MSM. It just makes their life easier.

There aren’t many comments at the site, but they’re uniformly negative to these guys and Obama. Pretty surprising for a WaPo article.

It's not incendiary, it's stupid, and it should be treated as such...and he should be publicly humiliated for the moron that he is.

Anyone who makes such ridiculous remarks should pointed out as a moron, and called a moron, publicly and often. If that somehow embarrasses certain people, or certain groups of people. Good.

The Tea Party has made a, possibly, monumental mistake. They’ve allowed the mouthpiece of the Democratic Party to continue. No doubt, the Dem’s are the problem, but our real problem is that the lie has been given as Gospel and the Truth has been questioned at every turn.
The media should’ve been our first concern. Propoganda is the spearhead of all causes. We should’ve put the fear of God or whatever into the media.
I suck at math but civilization is much like math. Social interactions are very simple. You dominate me or I dominate your. 2+2=4. All of our blogs and commentary isn’t changing what is happening at the top of our gov’t, nor at the top of our society.
Until we reign in the media, Goebbels wins. He was second to Hitler. I wonder if he wasn’t first.

Works for me for the current administration and those who support it:

§ 2381. Treason

Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

England had better punishment for high treason:

1. That the offender be drawn to the gallows, and not be carried or walk: though usually (by connivance length ripened by humanity into law) a sledge or hurdle is allowed, to preserve the offender from the extreme torment of being dragged on the ground or pavement

2. That he be hanged by the neck and then cut down alive

3. That his entrails be taken out and burned, while he is yet alive

4. That his head be cut off

5. That his body be divided in four parts

6. That his head and quarters be at the king’s disposal

For living proof, just look to what was Rhodesia. Once the San Fernando Valley of Afica is now just another dustbowl that cannot come close to feeding its inhabitants. The insightful producers just left and those who chose to take a stand were killed.

Criminal Law
What Does Inciting A Riot Mean?
Jeralyn Merritt

Q. What does the charge inciting a riot mean and what will happen?

— Anonymous

A. Under federal law, a riot is a public disturbance involving an act of violence by one or more persons who are assembled in a group of at least three people. The act of violence must be one that presents a clear and present danger of injury to another person or damage to another person\\\’s property. Threatening to commit a violent act in such a group situation that could injure another person or damage property is also considered a riot if one of the persons in the group has the ability at the time to carry out the threatened violence.
Inciting a riot applies to a person who organizes, encourages, or participates in a riot. It can apply to one who urges or instigates others to riot. It does not apply to someone who merely advocates ideas or expresses beliefs, if those ideas and beliefs do not involve advocating violence.

The federal crime of inciting a riot carries a possible penalty of up to five years in prison a fine.

State and local governments also have laws that make it a crime to incite a riot. The penalties range from fines only to jail time. It is important that the law, even if only a municipal ordinance, specify the conduct that that is prohibited with sufficient definiteness that ordinary people can understand what conduct is prohibited.

If you have been charged with inciting a riot, I recommend you seek out a criminal defense lawyer in your area who can tell you exactly what conduct the law prohibits in your jurisdiction, and advise you as whether the law is subject to a challenge on the grounds that it is unconstitutionally vague—either because it fails to sufficiently set forth what conduct is prohibited, or fails to set minimal guidelines for police to use in enforcing the law.

They want the same thing any fascist regime wants.

Voltaire said that if you can get people to believe in absurdities, you can get them to commit atrocities.

Look at what the Nazis did to Jews:

1. Demonize the innocent (TEA Party)

2. Euthanize the unwanted (unborn, disabled, elderly)

3. Create a bogus crisis like the Reichstag Fire and Gleiwitz incident to destroy political opposition and start a war (Fast and Furious).

See my tagline.

State leaders engaged in evil racist acts were executed by hanging at Nuremburg.

The negro “Nazi” party running the US must be accused, tried, and held accountable for their crimes.

So, the nonsequitur nature of his remarks didn't bother anyone in the drive-by media to the extent that they didn't call his ignorant racist ass on these divisive and stupid remarks?

Andre Carson is no leader. The reason he is in the House of Representatives is that his grandmother held the seat for years. He is obviously lying, and this isn’t the first time. You can form your own conclusions about his character.

The tea parties were actually spawned by discrimination-against the private sector.

I went to the first tea parties in dc, it seemed to me the common trait was the sentiment that the government was making war on capitalism.

Employers, entrepreneurs, and investors have become the new negroes.

Who are the members of congress who told him this? No names, just lies. He is he one who, while walking with Pelosi in DC, accused the Tea Party of more lies and there was no proof to be found. Someone offered a $100,000 reward for proving anything he said was true. No one got the money. It would be the same thing this time. He couldn’t prove his statements then and he won’t be able to do so now. He is stiring up as much hatred as he possibly can.

Andre carson, worthless as he is, is the result of Andy Jacobs retiring years ago but not wanting to give up power.

Jacobs installed julia Carson, Andre's grandmother in that seat and ruled it through her for years, hell she was so sick she couldn't even vote in the end her staff would register the votes for her.

Both Andre and his grandmother have been challenged by black conservatives and the races have been close.

The more Andre beats the bushes of racism, the more vulnerable he believes his position is. The only way he can continue to win is by screaming racism loud enough he can get otherwise lazy voters to the polls.

It is no surprise, I've not seen this mentioned in the Indianapolis Star, Gannett publications take care of their own.

I honestly hope Andy Jacobs has lost the ability to control his boy Andre and the muslim, racial rhetoric continues, it might just motivate the opposition this time.

Also of note Andre is not a muslims, muslim....he is one of Farrakahns boys and that truly makes him dangerous.
