Representative Andre Carson engaged in some serious rhetoric at a Congressional Black Caucus event, specifically targeting the Tea Party and Tea Party favorites in Congress. He said “(Tea Partiers would) love to see us as second-class citizens…some of them in Congress right now of this tea party movement would love to see you and me…hanging on a tree.” Wow, that's quite a claim. Current Congressman want African Americans executed? Amazingly, when questioned the Carson defended his comments.
Below was The Blaze video containing the original comments
"You have such a distorted view of the world if you believe that that is true. Are there people that are - black and white - that wouldn't mind hanging people of the other race? Yes. I think there is. That's an issue. We should talk about those people when we find them. We shouldn't diminish the cries of real racism by using it just for politics," Glenn said.
