Last week, a rally backed by Tea Party members took on a racist undertone. According to the Huffington Post, Tea Party activist and lawmakers within the GOP gathered near the Capitol to express their feelings against the immigration reform bill passed by the Senate.

Members of the Republican Party, including Rep. Steve King (Iowa), and Senatores Jeff Sessions (Ala.) and Ted Cruz (Texas) showed up to the rally, which spoke against a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants.

But it was the remarks from Ken Crow, one of the Tea Party community’s co-founders, that alarmed George Zornick of The Nation.
