Days after Rep. Maxine Waters told her supporters the tea party movement could go “straight to hell,” a fellow House Democrat said the movement is "the real enemy."

"Let us all remember who the real enemy is. The real enemy is the Tea Party," Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., said at a Miami town hall, according to The Hill. "The Tea Party holds the Congress hostage. They have one goal in mind, and that's to make President Obama a one-term president."

Wilson's comments suggest that members of the Congressional Black Caucus may be following a uniform strategy in attacking the tea party. This in spite of frequent calls by Democrats for a move civil tone in political discourse.

“This is a tough game. You can't be intimidated. You can't be frightened. And as far as I'm concerned — the Tea Party can go straight to hell,” Waters, D-Calif., said at a town-hall-style meeting in California.

The Rev. Jesse Jackson, also participating in the town hall, compared the modern tea party movement to opposition to the civil-rights movement. "The Tea Party is a new name on an old game," he said. "Dr. King fought a 'tea party' in Alabama."
