Remember this tool? Supposedly a former cop and intelligence professional, this is the same race-baiting, cowardly ignoramus who suggested that black legislators’ lives were in danger due to TEA Party protesters who obviously represented a “terrorist” threat to him and Congressman John Lewis.
He’s at it again, claiming Americans who demand a smaller, more accountable government (you know… those dangerous TEA Party Terrorists™) want to see blacks hanging from trees. Oh yes, he did!
“Some of these folks in Congress right now would love to see us as second-class citizens,” he said. “Some of them in Congress right now with this Tea Party movement would love to see you and me … hanging on a tree.”
As a former “intelligence professional” this race-baiting Bag of Ass should know better than to use inflammatory rhetoric such as this. Words have meaning, and in the intelligence field, you want to be as precise as possible about what you mean. In this case, the New Civility™ has apparently reared its ugly head. You know… the kind of civility that uses hyperbole to paint opponents as terrorists (because as you know, “terrorist” is the new buzzword that elicits the kind of emotion race-baiters use to get ignorami to vote for them), and then fall back on the old “Well, I was just speaking metaphorically” excuse to make a point.
His “comments respond to the frustration voiced by those in Miami,” [Carson's spokesman Jason] Tomcsi said. “People are frustrated by the inability of Congress to do something about the economy and get people back to work.”
Tomcsi said Carson believes “Tea Party members in Congress know when they vote against programs, they know who [sic.] they’re impacting. They have different priorities — their priorities are to protect millionaires, oil companies and tax cuts for the wealthy. Those people aren’t impacted by programs like child nutrition, Head Start, job training and job creation.”
Riiiiiiiiight. Just a metaphor for taking a certain segment of the population off the government cheese… forcing them to take a certain amount responsibility for themselves and to stop blaming racism and the “rich” for every tiny wrong in their lives.
So is Carson admitting that blacks are the most affected by the removal of welfare? And is he really claiming that removing blacks from the dole is somehow comparable to lynching? That they can’t live without taxpayer funded government aid?
Who’s the racist here?
