Meet Alcee Hastings and Steven Cohen

On the Left, there is no such thing as a “fringe” anymore. I don’t care what sort of wacko left-wing idea you can come up with, there’s a Democrat in power somewhere advocating it.

Heck, even their presidential candidate has pal’d around with terrorists like Bill Ayers and virulently anti-white, anti-American scumbags like Jeremiah Wright.

So, let’s meet two of the fine human beings who have the great honor of representing America in our Congress, Alcee Hastings, who was once impeached for corruption as a judge and Steven Cohen,

Rep. Alcee Hastings told an audience of Jewish Democrats Wednesday that they should be wary of Republican VP nominee Sarah Palin because “anybody toting guns and stripping moose don’t care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks.”

“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,” Rep. Alcee Hastings of Florida said at a panel about the shared agenda of Jewish and African-American Democrats Wednesday. Hastings, who is African-American, was explaining what he intended to tell his Jewish constituents about the presidential race. “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,” Hastings added as the room erupted in laughter and applause.

After telling attendees that the most important thing Jewish and African-American Democrats could do to support one another was to get Sen. Barack Obama elected president, Hastings had one more message: “For those of you like me that supported Sen. Hillary Clinton, she lost! Get over it!”

Hastings was joined on the panel by Rep. Steven Cohen of Tennessee, who is Jewish and represents a majority African-American district; Rep. Artur Davis of Alabama, who is African-American and whose district includes many of the significant sites in the 1960’s civil rights movement; and Georgetown Law Prof. Peter Edelman, who was a legislative assistant to Sen. Robert F. Kennedy.

Cohen, who recently remarked that Jesus Christ was a community organizer, took his comments about the founder of the Christian faith further Wednesday. “A lot of what Jesus talks about is wonderful,” Cohen said. “Talks about helping people and lifting them up and caring about people who are sick and all those things. He’s a great Democrat.”

So, we have one brain dead Democrat claiming that anyone “toting guns and stripping moose” must not like blacks and Jews and the other claiming that Jesus was a Democrat.

Keep in mind that these two aren’t two idiots in the comments section of the Daily Kos or the Huffington Post; these are two Democratic members of Congress.

When I say that the fringe and mainstream have merged on the Left, look at Alcee Hastings and Steven Cohen and tell me I am wrong.
