Democrats keep screaming about McCarthyites every time a Ted Cruz steps up to oppose them. But they may have one in their own midst in the punchdrunk form of Rep. Alan Grayson. Grayson sent out a fundraising email accusing the Tea Party of being the KKK this week, an email that even used a burning cross to spell “Tea Party.” The over-the-top email has attracted criticism from all over — even some Democrats have found it to be a bit too much.

But Grayson has not backed down. Today he appeared on Martin Bashir’s MSNBC show and, naturally, was asked about that inflammatory email. Grayson not only did not back down, he ended up accusing Martin Bashir — this guy –

of “collaborating” with the Klan.

Seriously. He ends the clip below admonishing Bashir, “The point I’m making is that if you don’t speak out against [racism], then in effect, you’re collaborating with it. And, in fact, if you give someone like me a hard time for speaking out against it, then maybe you’re collaborating with it.”

Exit question: What’s the deal with Grayson? Is he a cynical exploiter, does he sincerely believe the dangerous nonsense he peddles, or does he have a mental disorder? It’s clear that he is no run-of-the-mill leftist when even MSNBC thinks he’s nuts. So what’s his deal?

If he’s sincere, isn’t that the worst of the possible alternatives?

On behalf of conservative Floridians, I hereby apologize for allowing this moron to get reelected to the House of Representatives. We already have to atone for Debbie What's Her Name Schultz and Corrine Brown......but they are tame compared with Alan The Mouth Grayson. We defeated him once, but he pulled a sneak attack on us with the redistricting last year.

Liberals like Grayson always use the "I'm just speaking out against racism." In fact, they are using that lame excuse as a platform for hate-speech against any group that is suspiciously too white. Too white denotes the actual and de facto presence of racism. End of story. Too Latino, female, gay or black denotes nothing. Not exactly a type of common sense I can relate too.

Liberals like Grayson say, "diversity doesn't mean fewer whites." That's a straw man, since the argument behind diversity is that where it doesn't exist, it is because whites are racists.

What it all adds up to is hate-speech, racial profiling and institutionalized racial groups such as race-based artistic awards, political caucuses and quotas.

Mysteriously, the conservative racists never actually advocate for whiteness, or form white caucuses or have whites-only literary anthologies, or have mainstream white culture websites. They always operate just out of sight, at the edges of one's vision, using "code" like "immigration" and "Chicago."

When is obvious actually obvious? The KKK is the literal and philosophical ancestor of the Dem Party. That's a two-fer. Who's the philosophical ancestor of the Tea Party, Thoreau? Hahaha. Idiots.

Whats the deal with Grayson? Its call 'a loose screw' - in fact he may be totally devoid of screws. He'll fly apart soon if nothing is done. I'm all for doing nothing.

Grayson is clearly insane. He desperately needs about a year's worth of ECT.

"You are asking me questions I don't want to answer. That makes you a racist."

What's the deal with Grayson? He's a D-Bag. An A-Hole. If he really believes his own bullsh_t (to quote Obama), then he's crazy.
He was the representative from my district before losing in 2010. Redistricting carved out a niche of nutjobs who thought Grayson is good. Grayson makes Pelosi look positively sane.

Your observation on states is incorrect, Pelosi lost each time she ran in Orange County Ca or sometimes in San Diego, too many people here think that California is all liberal because of La and San Fran and Santa Clara. In fact San Diego is the 5th largest county much larger than Santa Clara or San Fran its more purple these days than red but a lot of Republicans in San Diego or Orange County or Kern County are treated like Crapp because they happen to be in California by other Republicans.

Orange County or San Diego? Do you mean one of our U.S. Senators? Unfortunately, Pelosi is my representative here in San Francisco, where she has been for decades.

The problem is Grayson mixes the Tea party bunch with the more harder white nationalists groups like Lew Rockwell connection with Ron Paul. The secession movement particularly the Southern states ones like League of the South are another white nationalists group. As a friend of mine stated the Tea Parties are more into the Green since they sometimes support candidates that support guest worker programs that can reduce jobs for poorer whites or higher skilled whites. These guest workers could have people from Mexico or the Phillpines or China or India, so the white racists cried is dated. Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio both support guest workers programs that don't help white nationalists groups.

I know you shouldn't use the appearance of a person as an indicator of character but doesn't Grayson look like a mental case ready to blow a gasket? The heavy jowls, narrow eyes and bushy brows make him look a MAD magazine version of a corrupt politician. If he were a Republican then newspaper cartoonists would look at him as a gift from the gods because he would be so easy to caricature. (He's a Dem so he's safe.) As for attacking Martin Bashir - Grayson must either be so dumb or so far gone that he can't even recognize his friends who are trying to help him out.

Doesn't get any sadder for this country then this man.
