If the conservative media is looking for the civility they demand after Jim Hoffa’s much publicized comments, tea party activist Tony Katz may not be the place to look.

Appearing on MSNBC Tuesday afternoon, Katz had a heated discussion with both anchor Craig Melvin and Democratic strategist Jamal Simmons. And in the midst of their reaction to Hoffa’s Labor Day statements, Katz certainly wasn’t afraid to make his own controversial statement.

“Democrats don’t like President Obama, they are trying to embarrass him,” he said. “I didn’t know that Obama was actually a Kenyan term for Rodney Dangerfield. They give him no respect.”
