Skip to comments.Rep. Carson: Tea party wants to see African Americans ‘hanging on a tree’
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 Carsons (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.

I’d like to see Carson in the stocks and throw rotten fruit at him.
OTOH, they are third rate intellects, at best.
Carson's one of two who accused Tea Party protestors of ObamaCare of hurling "racial epithets" at them back in March 2010.
"Uhh, hi guys! Oh, what? You're angry? Angry that I'm such a screw up and can't fix the economy? You might vote for someone else in the next primary?!?!
Oh ... well ... see, there's a good reason, you know. Really good ... reason.
It's good. The reason, I mean.
It's ... really good ... I'VE GOT IT! It's the TEA PARTY! Wha ha happen was I was gonna fix everything but they ambushed me. They're tough!! They're actually ... time-travelling ... Klansmen ... terrorist ... Dominionist ... vampire ... hobbits. And they want to replace you all with ATMs!! And hang your bodies from trees!! Their skin sparkles when sunlight hits them!! They curve bullets in the air when they shoot! They can dodge bullets, too! And stop time! And teleport! It's crazy, man.
Yeah, that's the ticket!"

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.
I view anyone that lives off of the taxpayers dime as a second class citizen. Except those who actually work of course.
..and not a word from the CBC about the flash mobs targeting whites. That’s the real source of violence and hate. It’s not from the patriotic Americans comprising the Tea Party.
I must have missed that Tea Party position. I’ve never heard the TP say ANYTHING about race, ever.
It's hard to believe how delusional an entire segment of our population can be. Can anyone here explain to me exactly what these people want?
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.
I volunteer to operate a gang gallows on the White house lawn in late 2012..
They do not want their slaves to leave the plantation. Obama is losing black support. Without that, Hillary will contest. So apparently, that means that all us tea party people are mean people.
Ain't that the truth!
