Skip to comments.'Spittlegate' and Its Consequences
Posted on 04/11/2010 3:46:40 AM PDT by Scanian
On Monday evening, April 5, my home phone rang. The caller ID said "Freedom, Inc.," the name of the black political club that ushered my congressman, Representative Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO), to power. Wondering whether the call might have something to do with the articles I have been writing about the media smear of the Tea Party protest on March 20, I answered the phone.
Once the female caller fixed that I was indeed who I was, she launched into a barely audible spiel for some cause that I could not quite make out. Innocent? Maybe, but the call came in at 11 PM, an unusual hour to promote a cause. Shot across the bow? Who knows.
The media response to the Tea Party protest has shown those of us who care just how thoroughly complicit the mainstream media and the Democratic Party have become, and how thoroughly corrupt is that complicity. Between them, with a little help from progressive outposts like the Huffington Post, they manufactured an incident that has discredited the legacy of the civil rights movement and further poisoned race relations in the allegedly post-racial age of Obama.

It was a show of arrogance to appear before the Tea Party in that manner in the first place.
Arrogance, yes, and that goes without saying. I think it was deliberate provocation.
It was a pathetic attempt to connect themselves with King's march.
>>It was a show of arrogance to appear before the Tea Party in that manner in the first place.<<
Worse, it was purposeful provocation. And when the Tea Partiers demurred to provide grist for the mill, they just invented an incident out of whole cloth.
Combine that with Alan Grayson crashing a Republican meeting and trying to incite a violent response to his arrogant rant, the plan is all too obvious. The only means they now have of discrediting the Tea Party movement is to intice them into some sort of violent act.
We see their trolls here telling us to gather but be silent and don’t carry signs that can be used as propaganda. Sure, let’s be silent, NOT!
Keep up the non-violent pressure and get into their faces just a hair off their nose. It is they who will be cought in their own trap.
CAPTION: This is the hammer they used to beat my face flat and pound in the tacks to hold it in place.
Does it matter who starts it as long as a lying press will report it how they please?
If they can cause chaos to start something, they will have an excuse to forward their ill-fated agenda. Pelosi and gang did this precisely for the reason all these dishonest journalist are now portraying, not only what happened, but who the tea party really is. These prix time will come and it will be no less destructive than what Japan and Germany received at their demise.
Agreed. But there may come a time when we need to take a battalion of chain-saw bearing warriors to the Capitol building that houses congress, especially the House end.
What was Grayson’s rant about? When/where did he do this? I can’t believe I didn’t hear about this. What was the response? Why’d they let the bastard in? They should have literally picked him up and tosses him out on his ass on the sidewalk.
The tendency of a black person to look toward color first is breathtaking. tHose who don’t are few and far between.
Incidentally union bigshot Rich Trumka claims he heard the slurs. Breitbart challenged him on that statement since no recording exists of the slurs. So who are we going to believe: Trumka or what actually happened?
I didn’t know Rodney had a march.
Video everything. It is coming back to bite them in the arshe because of people like Breitbart who put up the reward for any evidence it really happened. Three weeks past and no takers of the 100K bounty.
LOL. Good one.
