There are two things to keep in mind here.
A Georgia congressman who faced down a rowdy town hall meeting last week found his office vandalized Tuesday with a swastika painted over the official congressional sign.
Rep. David Scott told FOX News that the swastika spray-painted in black on his office door in Smyrna, Ga., is about four feet wide.
Cobb County police were informed and a report was filed with the U.S. Capitol Police and the FBI. David Johnson, Scott's district director, said the Capitol Police are handling this incident as a hate crime.
Johnson said he suspects the incident happened between the office's closing on Monday night and opening on Tuesday.
Scott, who is black, is both a fiscally conservative "Blue Dog" Democrat and a member of the Congressional Black Caucus.
One, is that a nasty, violent section of the anti-health care reform side of this debate is not interested in the least in civil debate. They are interested in tagging the offices of an African-American Congressman with a swastika and doing other garbage like this:
Scott said that the press twisted his comments at the meeting because he was talking about the residents not being permitted to talk about the highway plan. Residents said they were told they could ask questions about anything.The other thing to remember is that we have at least three more years and change of this stupidity to go.
However, Scott told FOX Business Network on Monday that the opponents to health care were manufactured, and he accused the audience members of having a racial undertone in the debate.
"There were tea baggers all around the place," the congressman said of the meeting, later holding up a flier with a picture of a now infamous poster of President Obama styled as The Joker from the Batman movie series.
"If you look at this, that's a picture of President Barack Obama," Scott said holding up the sign. "He's grinning there like he's the clown from Batman. Underneath that it says, 'N---a, n---a David Scott. It says you were, and you are, and you always forever shall be but a n---a.' If that ain't it I don't know what is.
The heat keeps getting turned up, the pot will boil over and make a mess. Only in this case, a whole hell of a lot of people are going to get hurt when it finally happens.
