Steven Anderson, Hate-Speech Pastor, Welcomed At Tea Party (VIDEO)

Pastor Steven Anderson, notorious for his hate-sermon against President Obama, gave a speech at a July 4th Tea Party event that a blogger on Ron Paul's Campaign for Liberty website deemed "excellent."

"President Obama is the worst president in the history of the United States ... He's selling us into slavery and serfdom," Anderson said at the Gilbert, Arizona gathering. However, he added that the Republican Party was just as bad.

Describing an incident in April during which the pastor was tasered by border control officials, Anderson concluded: "I shed my blood in the fight for freedom. Somebody needs to stand up and do something about this."

Anderson has regularly resisted searches at checkpoints and gotten into other altercations with authorities.

Blogger Matt Jarfi posted the video on the "Campaign for Liberty" website, calling it an "EXCELLENT Tea Party Speech."
