"As a black Tea Party activist, I could say that there's nothing more offensive than equating the Tea Party with the Ku Klux Klan," Burke said in a statement. "The hate speech uttered by sitting congressman Alan Grayson is deplorable, even by the low levels reached in recent years when Democrats routinely call us racists and suicide bombers."*rolls eyes* Oh, whatever.
Every time I travel throughout the 'sphere I routinely see the Tea Party referred to as the "Tea Klux Klan" (seriously, it's a saved search phrase in Google); Alan Grayson's comparison is nothing new and everyone needs to stop pretending to be so shocked that a sitting Congressman - or any other politician in office - would come right out and say it.
The Tea Party is racist. Saying so is akin to pointing out that rain is wet, the sky is blue, and "It must be [insert day that ends in -y]." The Tea Party is racist and Rented Negroes like Burke need to shut up and get over themselves.
