Allen West schools Dem. Rep. Alan Grayson: Democrats created KKK


October 22, 2013

A thoroughly disgusted Allen West responded Tuesday to Rep. Alan Grayson's fundraising email comparing the Tea Party to the KKK by reminding the Florida Democrat that it was his party who started the racist organization after the Civil War.


"Thoroughly disgusted by @AlanGrayson burning cross imagery. Sir, YOUR party created the KKK 2 intimidate black voters," he tweeted.

West linked to a post at his blog in which he called Grayson's use of a burning cross "beyond disgusting."

"I grew up in Atlanta, Ga., and remember the Klan burning crosses atop Stone Mountain," he said.

West went on to educate Grayson on what the Tea Party stands for.

"The constitutional conservative grassroots movement known as ‘The TEA (Taxed Enough Already) Party’ focuses on fiscal spending and government growth issues as well as individual liberty and free market principles," he wrote.

West advised the Florida Democrat to "crack open a history book" and learn about the origins of the Ku Klux Klan, and how it was designed by the Democrats to intimidate black southern voters.

"Voters such as those who elected the first black Republican member of the House of Representatives from Florida, Josiah T. Walls," he said. "Same party, same tactics, some things just never change."

He noted that Grayson defended his offensive email, saying, "If the shoe fits, wear it."

"I’ve asked fellow members of the Liberty Alliance Kevin Jackson, Deneen Borrelli, Alfonzo Rachel,and Cynthia Farahat if they see a bigot staring back at them from the mirror every morning, and unfortunately for liberals like Grayson, we still ain’t turned white yet," he added.

One person told West on Twitter that the lesson would be lost on Grayson.

"Mr West. You know liberals hate the facts. You're going to make his head explode," tweeted "Don."

Another person said Grayson would "deny that the likes of Robert Byrd, Bull Connor and George Wallace were Democrats."

Grayson posted a link to his email on Twitter and received a mix of comments. Some expressed support for Grayson, but others called him sick or evil.

"I’m a #TeaParty member AND black so how dare you! Orlando deserves better you racist bigot," one person tweeted.

The Ku Klux Klan was the terrorist wing of the Democrat Party.

Hell, I wouldn't be surprised if there was a hood in Grayson's closet. Some of the dems who squack like that usually are much closer to the subject than they care to admit (such as KKK members Robert Byrd(D), Albert Gore Sr.(D), and James William Fulbright(D)).
