Rep. Joe Wilson's outburst last week is drawing new recriminations from his colleagues, with a member of the Congressional Black Caucus suggesting that a failure to rebuke the South Carolina Republican is tantamount to supporting the most blatant form of organized racism in American history.
In an obvious reference to the Ku Klux Klan, Rep. Hank Johnson, D-Ga., said Tuesday that people will be putting on "white hoods and white uniforms again and riding through the countryside" if emerging racist attitudes, which he says were subtly supported by Wilson, are not rebuked. He said Wilson must be disciplined as an example.
This is one of the most ridiculous things I ever heard. As Mary Katherine Ham pointed out, TEA party protestors and blacks are not mortal enemies. Surprisingly, they can co-exist, converse, and get along side by side even if they may not see eye to eye on everything. No matter much the liberal media and many Democrats wish it were so, every white man that dares to question Obama's policies isn't a racist. One person can disagree with another person of another ethnicity withou being a racist.
