    "What are the percentages of people that are mentally retarded who workd for the organization and are members of it?" one portion of the message snidely asks the FreedomWorks foundation. He then asks if they "had a plan on how to spin the eventual news of one of their members turning violent and killing someone."

    The actor, Lance Baxter (acting name DC Douglas), accused FreedomWorks of hate speech before leaving his telephone number, purportedly for them to call him back.

    According to the press release about the incident, Baxter/Douglas was "upset by the recent gay and racial slurs slung by Tea Party members at Congressman Barney Frank and Representative John Lewis during the Health Care Reform Weekend. Mr. Douglas left his opinion of FreedomWorks' staff and followers on their company voicemail
    and included his phone number."

    Naturally, Mr. Douglas feels the FreedomWorks organization was completely out of line, despite the fact that he initiated the entire incident, and he continues to ride the wave of his 15 minutes of fame by fanning the flames of aggravation on his personal blog
