Rep. Andre Carson Stand By His Remarks
Conservative have been attacking Rep. Andre Carson since audio surfaced of him attacking the tea party, saying, “Some of these folks in Congress 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.” And he’s not backing down.
“Well, I wasn’t talking about the entire tea party. I think the tea party is absolutely right when they call for increased transparency in government, when they call for a cutback on excessive government spending. I am deeply concerned about some elements of the tea party who are extremist and who have reflected a mentality going back to the John Birch society, going back to George Wallace’s Dixiecrats,” Carson said.Click here for reuse options!
