At a Congressional Black Caucus Town Hall a few days ago in Los Angeles, Jesse Jackson told the audience that the Fort Sumter Tea Party supports the Tenth Amendment, or as he calls it, the slave amendment. Because of this, their fight against the Tea Party is a Civil War struggle. He asks “are you with the Union or the states’ rightists?”
This is just more of the absurd, over the top, smear-filled rhetoric being leveled against the Tea Party. They know their days are numbered so they are throwing everything they have. And again I ask, are they trying to start a violent movement with this kind of rhetoric?
