Joe the Plumber: ‘Democrats Have a History of Lynching Black Americans’

You know that old saying about two wrongs not making a right? Well, with all the outrage over Democratic congressman Alan Grayson‘s tea party-KKK e-mail, some on the right have decided to turn the tables on the left. In particular, 2008 campaign star Joe the Plumber tweeted out that “Democrats have a history of lynching Black Americans.”

The tweet also included an incredibly provocative mock-up flipping the script on Grayson’s usage of a burning cross to attack the tea party.

The photo was taken from conservative website The Black Sphere, managed by black conservative activist Kevin Jackson.

Meanwhile, Grayson has still not apologized for the initial slander, and on top of it he accused MSNBC’s Martin Bashir of being a tea party collaborator for daring to question whether it was appropriate.
