Priebus Defends GOP
Reince Priebus, Republican National Committee Chairman, appeared on Fox News today with Sean Hannity where he blamed Obama for creating a “culture of hatred,” and forming a hostile environment between the two parties in Washington. These comments by the RNC chairman are in response to Harry Balafonte comparing the influential Republican Koch brothers to members of the KKK, as well as a fundraising email by Rep Alan Grayson where he compared the tea party to the KKK. Priebus said that Americans cannot let Democrats rewrite history, and that the Republican party has nothing to be ashamed about-for it was the party that promoted freedom, equality, and opportunity. Priebus was alarmed that these comments were made, and even more so that the Democrats have not faced more of a negative backlash.
