CNN Claim: John Lewis Called a N*****, Barney Frank Called Sexual Slur by Tea Party Protesters
Saturday, March 20, 2010 | Kristinn

Posted on 03/20/2010 2:19:26 PM PDT by kristinn

CNN's Capitol Hill correspondent Dana Bash is reporting that Rep. John Lewis (D-GA), a black Congressman who is a Civil Rights era icon, was called a "n*****" by Tea Party protesters gathered on Capitol Hill today to rally against the Democrat's healthcare bill.

Bash also reported Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) was called a slur related to his homosexuality by Tea Party protesters.

No video so far of either incident.

Bash did note that the most constant and resonant words of the Tea Party protesters were "Kill the bill!" And that that chant was inescapable on the Hill today.

Sorry to post and run. I'm sure the MSM will be all over this of course.

It’ll probably be the top story until the vote.

After which time it will come out that no such thing was ever said. But nobody will report that.

Probably a dimoKKKRAT set-up. If it happened it was probably a paid dimoKKKRAT operative.

Odds of this being staged by the opposition: Very high.

Was it the same CNN crew that supposedly heard people at a McCain rally shouting, “Kill Him!” when McCain mentioned Obama’s name during the campaign, that no other news crews or people at the rally heard?

I’m sure this did happen, but we have to realize that the Tea Party rally is the size of a small city! What propagandists do when they cover these protests is focus in on the most radical elements to harm the credibility of the crowd’s cause. I’m sure these reporters went into the crowd looking for the most controversial things to report on, and they probably found them.

At a guess, I’d put the odds at around 5% an actual Tea Partier, and 95% a Democrat infiltrator.

If CNN still thinks that accusing Tea Party attendees of using bad words is going to gain any traction they’re just as out of touch in the matter as they have been all along. These are, after all, people who routinely use the sexual slur “tea-bagger” who are calling for decorum here.

And CNN has been slurring Tea Partiers as “Right Wing Extremists” since day 1, despite the fact that the group consists of millions of every day Americans - as grass-roots as you get.

Seems to me they WERE factual . What’s the problem . Hillary called the Jews bastards and nothing was done about it.Frank IS gay and should accept what people call him.
Farrakhan gets away with slandering whites all the time. Methinks it is time for a cleansing .

Oh yeah...they invented that.

Hmmm, I heard it was Barney who called Lewis a N****** after Lewis called Barney a F** during a verbal fight over the deem non vote procedure. Don’t know what to believe anymore. /s

OK, well that changes everything. It obviously means the Democrats are correct about everything and the Republicans are wrong about everything.

What, nobody actually said any of those things? Never mind.

No video so far of either incident.

I usually say, "no recording - it didn't happen", but the Left is so demented against the Tea Party that I wouldn't be surprised if they manufactured some 'proof'.

Is it racist if it’s true? If someone called him a “colored people” they’d call that racist. I’m going to start using that term.

I remember when southerners trying not to appear racist used the word “Nigra”. Now “Negro” is considered racist. Before long “Black” will be racist.

When using the N word with reference to Rep. John Lewis (D-GA), a black Congressman, did they precede it with “bald headed”?
