The CBC is intent on inciting violence (UPDATE)

The Blaze broke this story Tuesday morning with only a headline and an accompanying video:

Commenting on the latest Congressional Black Caucus race-baiting rhetoric, particularly that of Andre Carson, Levin had this to say about the vile and hateful speech:

Now, I’m not gonna do a throwaway line here where they talked about civility and where’s Obama. This is SICK, and I’m gonna tell you something: IT’S DANGEROUS. This kind of talk is intended to incite violence…tea party members of Congress want to see blacks hanging from a tree? I almost don’t know what to say; do you know what to say? And then when you add in Maxine Waters the other day, ‘the tea party can go to Hell, and she’s gonna help them go to Hell.’ This is a concerted campaign to create volatility, instability, and I believe they’re leading it up to the election.

The race card is going to be used by the politicians, which means We the People of all races, all creeds, all ethnicities, and yes, all parties and philosophies, we have to make sure that these politicians, like Andre Carson, do not succeed in what it is they are trying to do. We should have passionate disagreements…we can be outspoken…but to say that somebody wants somebody to hang from a tree?

Wow, I really thought that the Ulsterman and White House Insider stuff was mostly elaborations, in essence, storytelling…but this rhetoric, without any word from the Democrat leadership or Obama, seems to be shaping up in that dangerous direction!

I know Lt. Col. Allen West joined the CBC in an attempt to bring a conservative consensus to its membership, but somehow I don’t think they’re interested, considering the violent rhetoric they’ve initiated. Perhaps at this point, it may be beneficial for the freshman congressman to either step away from this caucus, or engage Carson’s most despicable statements, particularly considering his connections

UPDATE: Now we're reminded that CBC membership is reserved for LIBERAL blacks only...

The Hill reports, "West’s membership in the CBC has been a point of some controversy. In October, the caucus’s chairwoman, Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), questioned whether West should be allowed to join the CBC."  Now, due to the incendiary remarks of Carson, and I'm sure the overall treatment, Rep. Allen West is considering leaving the Black Caucus, saying, "When you start using words such as lynching … that’s a reprehensible word and I think we should move away from that language," and "One of the things I’m starting to think about is reconsidering my membership in the Congressional Black Caucus, because I don’t think they’re moving in the right manner toward solving the problems in not just the black community, but all of America."

The CBC has been pushing Lt. Col. West towards the other door since he's been there.  Complete and utter hypocrisy.  King would weep.
