By Nelson A. Pryor,
The election season is heating up, already. That wouldn’t be so bad, but those with honest disagreements hardly need to label their opponents as some sort of freak.
Let’s start with Al Gore, Jr. In addressing those who were skeptics on “global warming”, what did he say in an op-ed piece of the NYTimes of 4/22/1990? He only called them – just “medieval flat-earthers”! How is that for an honest discussion over differences?
On August 20, 2011, in Inglewood, Calif., Congresswoman Maxine Waters, of California, had the gall to tell members of the Tea Party/Conservatives, to “Go to Hell!”
Congressman Andre Carson, of Indiana, said something of significance. He said, on August 22, 2011, in Miami, that the Tea Party is “stopping change!” That sounds like a sensible statement. But then he went on and declared that the change was more than just change. “This is the effort that we’re seeing of Jim Crow.”
Carson goes on: “Some of these folks in Congress right now would love to see us as second-class citizens. Some of them in Congress right now with the tea party movement would love to see you and me, I’m sorry…hanging from a tree.”
Tea Party Patriot
“We’ve had Democrats calling American citizens ‘terrorists’ and ‘hostage takers’, and now an elected Democratic representative says that we can ‘go straight to hell’,” the group Tea Party Patriots said. “The president and all leaders of the Democratic Party, who have called for civility in the past, are neglecting to censure their own. Is civility only required from their opponents? Perhaps it’s time for a new-NEW era of civility….The President’s silence on these latest violations of civility has been deafening, but not surprising.”
Who do these officials expect to influence with such talk? This surely is an organizational or strategic advance. But is it? Hopefully, it is just a few talking through their hats.
(Granny Tea Party Patriot Says: I, TOO, AM OFFENDED!
Only those with nothing to say need to tear down others like a desperate drowning person in contact with a rescuer. God bless our black patriots who are not afraid to speak out, such as Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll, Herman Cain, Allen West, Lloyd Marcus (proud “unhyphenated American” on the Tea Party Express). They know Jim Crow is dead except for efforts to exhume the body in tactics to generate hate between races. So….)
Who Has Time For Such Talk?
With all the problems that this country, our country has, let’s not get small and lose sight of the bigger picture. We need to stop hemorrhaging money. We need to get back to basics. We need to pay our own way. In life, I have found that one doesn’t get ahead by getting even.
Our forefathers did a masterful job for us. Our descendents deserve the same from us. We can start fights and build walls; or we can tear out this “got you” mentality and rebuild our country. Let’s start! (JUST LEAVE JIM CROW IN THE GRAVE!)
