Jim Greer's Hate Rhetoric

Progressives should get together and hammer Republican Party of Florida Jim Greer for making this hateful statement.

"Republicans get up and go to work," Greer said he told the boy. "Democrats get up and go down to the mailbox to get their checks."

Can Greer name what Democrats are waiting for their checks? I'm sure Greer isn't talking about trustfund checks. He is using the old racist welfare queen line that plays well to GOP crowds.

Greer has been busy using Amendment 2 as a wedge issue to draw social conservatives to the polls. Nevermind, that there is already a law banning gay marriage in Florida. Nevermind, that the amendment is bigoted against a minority. Nevermind, that it is a cynical attempt to use a wedge issue to make voters ignore the lack of Republican accomplishments.

Greer should talk about waiting for checks. He got his current job by being a fundraiser for Charlie Crist. How much work is it to beg people for money? Mr. Greer, most people call that panhandling.

Progressive bloggers: hold Greer's feet to the fire on his asinine statement. Don't let him get away with this.

I'm ashamed that Jim Greer is even remotely associated with the State of Florida. His completely partisan, divisive, inflammatory and utterly deluded ramblings do not even deserve attention when it comes to the Big Picture. Mr. Greer: please go back to your trailer, have a beer and leave the politcal decisions to people who have some modicum of intelligence.

Greer is getting bashed by the Tea Party conservative for endorsing Crist over Rubio. Greer also has the credit card scandal. He is just trying to deflect attention and kiss conservative ass.
