What a Congressman; what an audience

Dem Leader on Palin: "Anybody toting guns and stripping moose don't care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks"

Here's the latest Democratic attack on gun-toting Americans...
Dem leader Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL) is seen here with fellow Rep. Robert Wexler (D-FL) who lives in Maryland.

Impeached Federal judge and Democratic House Leader Alcee Hastings attacked Sarah Palin today in a shameful racist rant.

The audience didn't mind. They cheered and laughed.


CNN reported:

Rep. Alcee Hastings told an audience of Jewish Democrats Wednesday that they should be wary of Republican VP nominee Sarah Palin because "anybody toting guns and stripping moose don't care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks."

"If Sarah Palin isn't enough of a reason for you to get over whatever your problem is with Barack Obama, then you damn well had better pay attention," Rep. Alcee Hastings of Florida said at a panel about the shared agenda of Jewish and African-American Democrats Wednesday.

Hastings, who is African-American, was explaining what he intended to tell his Jewish constituents about the presidential race. "Anybody toting guns and stripping moose don't care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks. So, you just think this through," Hastings added as the room erupted in laughter and applause.
Let's face it.

There is no way a Republican could say anything this foul and still have a career.

Then again... There aren't any impeached Republican judges currently serving in the US House.


Some things are so obvious, you don't need to say much about them.

Hat tip to Gateway Pundit for bringing us news of a Congressman's racism and an audience's applause of it, both of which acts will offend all decent Americans.

Alcee Hastings has none too clean a record himself. As for Jews and guns, had Jews had them in Europe, and not depended on the kindness of strangers, they might have a taken a couple of Nazis with them, and maybe the Nazis would have backed off.

Also, what does hunting have to do with how Gov. Palin feels about black and Jews? My recollection is that Gov. Palin has an Israeli flag in her office, which is more than I can say for St. Barack and the unsavory characters with whom he has surrounded himself.

Bottom line - Alcee Hastings is demented.

I am surprised not by the Dem but by the audience. In spite of things like the ACLU and Jewish support for the Dems, I have always thought they had more class than this.

I'll have to read further and hope somewhere I find some Jewish condemnation of his comments.

anon @ 9:22,

On election day most Jews will vote for Barack Obama.

Hastings knew his audience.

Think about it.

Should I even ask if this is being reported by the MSM?

For reasons that confound any thoughtful person, American Jews vote heavily Democrat every election. They can be expected to support St. Barack this time. Go figure.

This might begin to explain the applause.
My required reading:
Milton Friedman on Israel and Jewish Support for Socialism:

(1987)). Friedman addressed the interesting question of why Jews tend to be hostile to capitalism and sympathetic to socialism.

Regretfully, you are all right; and then Jews want Republicans to support them on Israel. What a misguided bunch my co-religionists are.
