Alcee Hastings: Anyone who hunts moose “don’t care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks”
hotair.com ^ | September 24, 2008 | Allahpundit

Posted on 09/24/2008 3:42:33 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

From a man who’s no stranger to abject disgrace comes one of the purest examples of racial demagoguery we’ve seen from either side during this very long campaign, duly laughed at and applauded by the same group that worked so hard last week to get Palin disinvited from the anti-Iran rally. His party will love him for it, I assure you.

Rep. Alcee Hastings told an audience of Jewish Democrats Wednesday that they should be wary of Republican VP nominee Sarah Palin because “anybody toting guns and stripping moose don’t care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks.”

“If Sarah Palin isn’t enough of a reason for you to get over whatever your problem is with Barack Obama, then you damn well had better pay attention,” Rep. Alcee Hastings of Florida said at a panel about the shared agenda of Jewish and African-American Democrats Wednesday. Hastings, who is African-American, was explaining what he intended to tell his Jewish constituents about the presidential race. “Anybody toting guns and stripping moose don’t care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks. So, you just think this through,” Hastings added as the room erupted in laughter and applause.

Hastings, once again, proving he’s nothing more than a “Step and Fetchit” for the DemoKlan, hawking their racism, and religious division lies, to get his DemoKlan masters what they want, so they will give him his big house table scraps.

There have been so many dumb things said against Palin by the rabid left, however this has to be the dumbest thing I have ever heard in my life. What, are Jews and blacks akin to animals?

How do morons like this keep getting elected?

“In 1989, after being acquitted in a criminal trial, Hastings was stripped of his position as a federal judge — impeached by the House in which he now serves and convicted by the Senate — for conspiring to extort a $150,000 bribe in a case before him, repeatedly lying about it under oath and manufacturing evidence at his trial.

Ordinarily, that might doom Hastings’s chances, but the situation is further inflamed by racial politics: Hastings is African American, and the Congressional Black Caucus has made it clear that it will not tolerate his rejection.”

This guy has been a disgrace for a very long time.

In other words, Alcee Hastings apparently does not think much of Jews and blacks.

“If he will kill, cook, and eat a cow, what do you think he would do to a Jew? Just let him go to waste?” sounds like a “joke” out of 1930’s Germany, perhaps one uttered by its leader.

What a maroon.

I’d invite Rep. Hastings to go hunting this fall here in good ole’ Ioway. The good ole days of branding everyone into nice neat, little groups is gone. Nobody gives a shit about these firebrands anymore, and with clowns spouting off like this, in my more uncharitable moments it occurs to me maybe it would be best for the united States as we know it to collapse, so we can start over.

He don’t get it, unless maybe some stuff under the table? That’s just pure demagoguery, has no place in politics.

I would expect Hastings to hold blacks and Jews in higher regard than moose.

You have to understand that these people (Yes I said these people.

They laugh at our little nervous twitches. You got to toughen up or they'll gut you like a fish.

Alcee Hastings is a bag of dung. Carter appointed him, and Pelosi actually considered him to chair the Intelligence Committee (as a convicted felon!!!), until cooler heads prevailed and she stuck us w/Reyes.

The (unfortunately recently deceased) father of one of my best friends was the head of the federal task force that removed “Judge” Alcee Hastings from the federal bench in South Florida (for conspiring to solicit bribes in a union pension fund embezzlement case, surprise, surprise). He took a lot of pride in having run that scumbag out the door of the federal building.

Hastings was scum on the bench, he's scum in the Senate, he'll meet his maker as scum.

What does AlCee Hastings say about a person who would leave an infant born of a botched abortion out to die? One could only imagine what this person would do with the old, and the infirm of any color.

No, he’s the judge who took a $150,000 bribe, lied about it under oath and was impeached by the US Congress, the very body he was later elected to serve by his fellow black racists.

This imp is all they got.

I would like to ask that audience about Obama’s special relationship with Farrakhan and Hamas. Figure it out people. If you think that Obama is a friend to Israel then Tony Resko has a plot of land to sell you on the south side of Chicago. Obama was breast fed by Farrakhan, Wright, Cone and Pfleger, plus his ally and campaign guru Robert Malley was fired for being too close to Hamas - are people nuts! These people hate Israel - get real.

If Obama gets in, Iran is laughing all the way to the nuclear button, with simultaneous attacks from Hamas into Israel. I hope Israel can survive his first term.

John Adams was right...

There are folks who should be denied the vote in a Republic that wishes to remain a Republic...
Grant fools and morons the vote, and fools and morons get elected.

Hastings epitomizes that in spades.
Pun intended, because one could get banned for using the correct term for Hastings and those like him.

Hastings has just insulted millions of Dem hunters who like nothing more than hunting deer and other critters. Do these Dem idiots know how many guns their own constituents have? I doubt it. The fact is the average blue-collar (and many white-collar) Dems own guns numbered in the millions. The NRA should get this out.
