Florida Democrat Hastings: Gun totin' Palin hates Jews and Blacks

I thought I had heard everything, then I was tipped off about statements made by one Alcee Hastings, Florida Democratic Congressman.
"'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,' said Hastings. '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.'"

In a country where we on the Right are constantly accused of waging smear tactics (it's ALMOST laughable), we're constantly subjected to vitriol (see: bullshit) spewed from the Left. Hastings also added:

"Asked what the congressman meant, Hastings spokesman David Goldenberg told ABC News that he was trying to argue that Palin is an 'extremely conservative woman who is out of touch with mainstream America.'

After saying that Palin 'don't care too much' about Jews and blacks, Hastings argued that African Americans and Jews should come together behind Obama because there are many issues on which they agree.

'Just like Jews, blacks care about affordable health care, energy independence, and the separation of church and state,' said Hastings. 'And just like blacks, Jews care about equal pay for equal work, investment in alternative energy, and a woman's right to choose.'"

Palin, out of touch with "mainstream America?" Really? A country that purports a majority of its population to be right or center-right. Conversely, we're talking about a group of people, LIBERALS, who are so consumed with a bogus ideology (global warming) and believe that this great United Stated has committed so many ills against Muslims that we DESERVE to be attacked.

And yet, we on the right are out of touch with reality.

The truth is: mainstream America wants closed borders, wants to cultivate its natural resources, including oil, nuclear power, oil shale, and coal, and wants to live in a country where, while we are tolerant, are not constantly subjected to progressive values shoved down our throat. Mainstream America goes to church, believes in hard work, and justice for innocent babies versus death row inmates.

Talk about getting it backwards.

Backwards is right. These comments say a lot about the speaker.
