Dem. Rep Uses Burning Cross to Spell 'Tea Party'

Democratic congressman Alan Grayson of Florida used an image of a burning cross to spell "Tea Party" in a recent fundraising email:

The email was first noticed by Dave Levinthal:

"[T]his isn’t the first time that Grayson has done reprehensible things. He called a woman a “K Street Whore,” and said Republicans want Americans to “die quickly.” And the Tea Party is often wrongly maligned," says an RNC spokesman in an email.

"Where does DWS and the DNC stand on this? Afterall DWS and Grayson are both Floridians. Promoting hate has no place in political discourse."

It may be offensive but he has freedom of speech and expression.

This is an extreme case but the  Democrats in general have gone completely off the rails at this point.

That is not expression in the terms you're using it. That's an expression of outright slander.

Which solidifies my point. They need to slander the tea party because they are scared of what they really stand for.

I can understand the link he is drawing for some within the party.

Slander is a good point.  I would think that whoever heads the Tea Party should look into a suit of some sort.  

But it is his freedom of speech and his burden of responsibility.
