Isn't it great to have Alan Grayson back in the limelight? Here's an article loaded with three videos of him taking on the right-wing propaganda machine head on, Alan Grayson Takes On Koch Brothers: 'People Are Wising Up' To 'Outright Lies,' 'Trickery,' 'Propaganda'
Rep. Alan Grayson just won back his House seat with a 25-point victory over Tea Party incumbent, Todd Long. Grayson said the 2010 election was an "anomaly" which "demoralized" Democrats but that the country, and Democrats have "wised up to Republican policies and to campaign tricks from the likes of Karl Rove and the Koch brothers."
"Now [Democrats] realize that if they don't vote, it's going to hurt them," he told HuffPost Live host Mike Sacks. "Now that the Republicans have been quite explicit about what they want to do...now it's clear to people that they have to vote to defend themselves. It's not only a question of the Democrats are going to do for you, it's a question about what the Republicans will do to you if you don't vote."
Grayson said that "people are wising up" to the influence of big money backing Republican candidates and the ads put out by such groups.
"The Koch brothers and their allies and Karl Rove were able to depress the Democratic vote through outright lies and trickery repeated endlessly through their TV propaganda ads in 2010," he said in the clip above. "But now people are wising up."
In another cool video on this site Grayson says:
By the way, I don't have any affiliation with Representative Grayson, I just like the courageous and consistent way he calls out right-wing "malarkey," with such charm, that warms peoples hearts and brings on smiles, instead of suspicion. I don't know how he does it, but seems to be "mainstreaming" progressive perspectives ... finally!
"The Republican majority has become completely incoherent and is falling to pieces," he said, saying there are now "two different parties: the semi-rational Republican part and the Tea Party." Grayson said that creates some leverage for House Democrats, provided they stick together.
"We have shown that we're a united caucus and the Repubilcans have shown that the crazies have taken over."
Sadly, I can't seem to get these new "Iframe" embed videos to work, so you will have follow the above link if you want to view them.
But, how can you not love this guy who articulates progressive perspectives with such passionate upbeat verve and exuberance?
