‘String Him Up’ Racist and eliminationist rhetoric at a Common Cause rally

[M]ore evidence that Common Cause is a violent, racist movement than all the media put together have done vis-à-vis the Tea Party.

On Sunday, Common Cause hosted a panel discussion called “Uncloaking the Kochs,” which, according to the Common Cause website, “was followed by a rally outside the posh Rancho Las Palmas resort where the Koch brothers were holding one of their political strategy meetings.” The Koch brothers’ support of free-market causes makes them enemies of “democracy,” in Common Cause’s view.

Christian Hartsock, a videographer who contributes to Andrew Breitbart’s BigGovernment.com, attended the Common Cause rally and produced a devastating four-minute video of his interactions with the Common Causer supporters.

His coverage of the rally opens with an ingenuous twentysomething white woman holding forth: “There’s a devastating influence in our country, and it’s coming from fear and anger and widespread misunderstanding of what’s actually causing the problems in our society. And I think that the racist Tea Party is one example of that, and it makes me feel ashamed to be an American.”
