Conservatives and republicans are always being accused of being the angry ones, the attack ones, nasty and accusing the left with nasty statements. I beg to differ, here is a quick list of some vile statements made recently by the party of compassion and caring for the little guy.
1. President Barack Obama
“The one unifying principle in the Republican Party at the moment is making sure that 30 million people don’t have health care. Why is it that my friends in the other party have made the idea of preventing these people from getting health care their holy grail? Their number one priority?”
2. Rep. Steve Cohen (D – TN)
“They say it’s a government takeover of health care, a big lie just like Goebbels. You say it enough, you repeat the lie, you repeat the lie, and eventually, people believe it. Like blood libel. That’s the same kind of thing.“
3. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid
Reid on GOP opposition to ObamaCare: “You think you’ve heard these same excuses before? You’re right. In this country there were those who dug in their heels and said, ‘Slow down, it’s too early. Let’s wait. Things aren’t bad enough.’ — about slavery.” Senator Reid recently admitted on NPR that the ObamaCare ‘train wreck’ was intended to take over the healthcare industry.
4. Vice President Joe Biden
“(Romney) is going to let the big banks once again write their own rules, unchain Wall Street,” Biden said at a campaign event in Danville, Virginia. “He is going to put y’all back in chains.”
5. Rep. Charlie Rangel (D – NY)
“It is the same group we faced in the South with those white crackers and the dogs and the police.” – Rangel on the “Tea Party,” which is against government debt and overspending.
6. Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (D – TX)
“I stand here as a freed slave because this Congress came together.” Slavery in the United States legally ended over 150 years ago.
7. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid
“Here we are seven months into [Obama’s] second term and nothing has changed. It’s been obvious they are doing everything they can to make him fail. And I hope, I hope, and I say this seriously, it’s based on substance and not the fact that he’s an African American.”
8. President Barack Obama
“It’s not surprising, then, they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”
9. Former DNC Chair Howard Dean
“White folks in the South who drive pickup trucks with Confederate flag decals on the back ought to be voting with us.”
10. Rep. Frederica Wilson (D – FL)
“Let us all remember who the real enemy is. The real enemy is the Tea Party… the Tea Party holds the Congress hostage.”
11. DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz
“I don’t see any swastikas or any pictures of the President in black face or burned in effigy here. The difference between the way we express our First Amendment rights and the way I’ve seen Tea Party extremists—Republican Tea Party extremists—express their right is dramatically different.” – Current DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, hallucinating about millions of people who oppose government debt and overspending.
12. Rep. Alan Grayson (D – FL)
“If you get sick, America, the Republican health care plan is this: Die quickly. That’s right, the Republicans want you to die quickly if you get sick.”
13. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid
“His poor father must be so embarrassed about his son.” – Reid is referring to Mitt Romney’s deceased father George Romney, who decided to release over 12 years of tax returns when he ran for president in the late 1960s.
14. Former Democrat Party Presidential Candidate Jesse Jackson
“The Tea Party is a new name on an old game… Dr. King fought a ‘tea party’ in Alabama.” Obviously, there has not been a single tea party protest for repealing the rights of blacks; and if anything, the protesters want people to be judged by Dr. King’s standard – by the content of their character, not the color of their skin.
15. Obama Spokesperson Stephanie Cutter
“The entire reason that [Benghazi] has become the political topic it is, is because of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. It’s a big part of their stump speech. And it’s reckless and irresponsible.” According to a recent poll, the overwhelming majority of Americans do not believe Benghazi is a ‘phony scandal.’
16. Attorney General Eric Holder
“When you compare what people endured in the South in the 60s to try to get the right to vote for African Americans, and to compare what people were subjected to there to what happened in Philadelphia [the Black Panther voter intimidation case] —which was inappropriate, certainly that…to describe it in those terms [like former Democratic activist Bartle Bull, who called the incident the most serious act of voter intimidation he had witnessed in his career] I think does a great disservice to people who put their lives on the line, who risked all, for my people.” Holder is implying here that ‘my people’ are blacks. Could a white Attorney General get away with such divisive language?
17. Rep. Maxine Waters (D – CA)
“This is a tough game. You can’t be intimidated. You can’t be frightened. And as far as I’m concerned — the Tea Party can go straight to hell.”
18. Rep. Charlie Rangel (D – NY)
“What is happening is sabotage. Terrorists couldn’t do a better job than the Republicans are doing.”
19. Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D – CA)
“What they want is a continuation of the failed economic policies of President George Bush which got us in the situation we are in now. What we want is a new direction. … This [tea party] initiative is funded by the high end — we call call it astroturf, it’s not really a grassroots movement. It’s astroturf by some of the wealthiest people in America to keep the focus on tax cuts for the rich instead of for the great middle class.” Nancy Pelosi, trying to explain why millions of Americans think taxes are too high, government is too big, and there’s too much debt.
20. President Barack Obama
“No, no, no, Don’t boo. Vote. Voting is the best revenge.” Barack Obama, before being elected President of the United States for a second term. Can America take more “hope and change”?
