Alan Grayson Accuses Doctor of Racism

Alan Grayson Accuses Republicans of Social IndifferenceMr. Voice of Reason, Democratic Congressman Alan Grayson accused Dr. Jack Cassell of racisim when he put up an anti-Obamacare poster on his door (full story here). Grayson went on to file charges with the Florida medical licensing board.

“Well, in fact, where he lives, in Mount Dora, which is in my district, many, many of the Democrats who live in Mount Dora happen to be African-Americans,” Grayson said on CNN. “So, by saying that he will not treat somebody who supported Obama, he’s saying that he’s not going to treat a large number of African-Americans in the community.”

“How many people walked in — walked up to his front door, saw the sign, and turned away?” he asked. “How many people referred from other physicians in the community, including primary care physicians, how many patients saw that sign and walked away?”

Asked what kind of punishment Cassell should receive, Grayson said “Well, whatever the medical authorities think he should get. But it is a clear violation of ethics, and it’s a particularly ugly one. Why is it that the right wing is so preoccupied with denying people health? Why is that?” TheHill.com

Grayson is as dumb as he is bigoted. How could Dr. Cassell be charged with racism since he set up his practice in Mount Dora, who according to Grayson himself is an African-American community. If the doctor didn’t want to treat blacks why would he pick such a neighborhood for his practice?

    Mount Dora only has a 12.5% black population, of which I’m sure that 99% voted for Obama. Who are the racists, exactly?

    @AngelaTC I’m glad AngelaTC has cleared up Mount Dora demographics for us. It appears that Mount Dora only has an average percentage of blacks residing there. So what the heck was Grayson talking about? He’s just one more leftist indiscriminately using the racism card to smear any opposition to the socialist takeover of our country.

    He is not “refusing” to treat anyone. If people walk away, that’s their problem. But he’s not turning them away.
