Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson of Florida sent a fundraising pitch equating the Tea Party to the Ku Klux Klan, which includes an image of a burning cross for the letter "T."

The fundraising e-mail plays off an interview Grayson did last week with Al Sharpton on MSNBC after the federal government reopened following a 16-day shutdown. "The Tea Party is no more popular than the Klan," Grayson said in that interview a transcript of which the Florida lawmaker posted on Twitter Monday night, along with link to a donation page.

"Ask yourself this: Who else in American public life today is as honest and as blunt as this? Congressman Alan Grayson deserves your support, like no one else," reads the end of Grayson's message. "He, and only he, is saying the things that you are thinking, and so much need to be said."

That idiot has the guts to say that. When the starters of the kkk were members of the demoncrats.
.
As well as thorough out the years the kkk has existed, many other prominent demoncrats like david duke, Sen. Robert Byrd, Sen Theodore Gilmore Bilbo,
.
In many ways the kkk was and still is the 'strong' arm of the demoncrat party.
.
http://www.zianet.com/web/dimterror.htm Ku Klux Klan was a Democrat invention to win by terror what they could not win through politics or war..
.
http://www.nationalblackrepublicans.com/index... History shows that the Ku Klux Klan was the terrorist arm of the Democrat Party.

I think you are a few decades off. While the KKK was populated by Southern Democrats in the 1950's and 1960's, for the last few decades the KKK has drawn almost all its membership from the ranks of Republicans.

So if you want to talk about many decades ago, you are correct.

If you want to talk about recent history, you are completely wrong.

Leave her alone - she heard it on Faux News so it must be right in her mind.

You can't have a logical exhange with a libertard. Their last ditch response is "you are a racist".

They say that because if you oppose Obama whom is black you must be a racist. So you can't attack the Obama Admin policy without being called racist. Libs are so phocking ignorant....
