Ed Driscoll

And Again

As Jim Geraghty writes, “The race card: It’s not just for African-Americans anymore”: He spots yet another Democratic congressman smearing his constituency:

This morning on XM’s POTUS I heard audio of Congressman John Dingell, D-Mich, appearing on Ed Schultz’s program, telling the host that the health care protesters remind him of those who objected to the Civil Rights Act, specifically comparing them to Ku Klux Klan members and white supremacists.

[And yet curiously, it’s the protestors who are being threatened and/or actually on the receiving end of de facto state-sanctioned violence.–Ed]

(There is a reference to Dingell’s comments on the site for Schultz’s show here, but I cannot get the audio to play.)

The race card: It’s not just for African-Americans anymore.

UPDATE: Campaign Spot reader Jen asks whether Dingell drew the conclusion from the fact that some in the crowd looked as old as Sen. Robert Byrd, D-West Virginia.

Heh. Meanwhile a new poster reveals the ugly face of racism.

Update: This far right reactionary protestor might be the most racist and unpatriotic of all.
