From Andrew Breitbart’s attack on Congressional Democrats for walking outdoors:

The first sign that a plan was in place was the ham-fisted, high-camp posturing of the most controversial members of the Democratic caucus walking through the peaceful but animated “Tea Party” demonstrators on Capitol Hill. There is no reason for these elected officials to walk above ground through the media circus amid their ideological foes. The natural route is the tunnels between the House office buildings and the Capitol. By crafting a highly symbolic walk of the Congressional Black Caucus through the majority white crowd, the Democratic Party was looking to provoke a negative reaction.

Emphasis mine, because Breitbart’s use of the word “controversial” as a stand-in for “Black” pretty much tells you all you need to know about Breitbart and the right-wing drive to blame Black and gay congressmembers for going where angry White people could see them.

(This is the same school of thought in which “carefree” kids are ones who aren’t gay and don’t know about anyone that is)

Unless we’re supposed to believe that two-term Rep. Andre Carson became on of “the most controversial” Democrats based on the content of his character.



  1. Your interpretation is broad. I think it was clear he included Nancy Pelosi herself in his use of the term controversial. In fact, not only are you wildly speculating, but you’re taking a paragraph out of context. At least you have the balls to link to the whole article.

    I’m sure there ARE racists in the Tea Party…and homophobes. I’m equally sure there are racists and homophobes in the GOP and the Democratic Party.

    I find it odd that the only PROVEN instances of actual racism come from black Democrats calling their black Tea Party counterparts Uncle Toms.

    Are you aware of the recent Gallup poll that showed the Tea Party to be 79% white? The country is 75% white.

    Breitbart has explicitly stated his position. He’s staked a large amount of personal money for any proof of these “racist” incidents. At least, where the Tea Party is concerned, he’s offered proof of his allegations. What have you got other than innuendo?

    Every single poll I’ve seen shows the GOP and the Tea Party gaining momentum, not losing it. Do you think maybe it’s time for the Democratic party to try new tactics? The fact is, people are upset with Democrats and their increasingly socialist, YES socialist, policies. THAT is what the Tea Party is all about, not race.

    Do I approve of everything Andrew Breitbart says and does? Absolutely not. The ACORN thing pisses me off, quite frankly. But I’m withholding judgment against him until I see the full, unedited tape. But I follow issues from both the liberal and conservative media quite closely. Breitbart is quite right on this issue. In this country, the burden of proof is on the accuser. You must prove that the Tea Party is racist, not disprove that it isn’t. As a student of science, I know what a non-starter proving the non-existence of something is.

    And, before you accuse me of being a racist homophobe, or even a race-baiter, for supporting Breitbart’s point of view on this matter, keep in mind I voted for Obama and I’m gay. I’m also a liberal, albeit a moderate one. Before you attack me for using the word socialist, keep in mind I’ve lived in countries with heavily socialist programs, and even visited communist ones. I’m also an “angry white person”. Marginalize me. I dare you.
