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.
Riiiiiiiiiight. Suuuuuuuuure they did. I’m sure CNN has footage we can see—right?
Were these 2 “tea party” protesters wearing purple shirts, and chauffered around in a bus by Andy Stern’s wife?
Whether there’s any validity to this or not, it just reinforces my feeling that Zero is such a horrible President that he will set race relations back in this country 50 years.
Yes, well you know how hard it is to rustle up one of them new fangled video recorders at a newsworhty event in the nation’s capital.
We’ll just have to take their word for it. After all, dems have proven themselves so very trustworthy.
POLITICO: ...Protestors gathered early on the West Front of the Capitol to plead with Democrats to abandon their push for a sweeping health care bill, the day before a critical House vote. The shouts and jeers got personal at one point after some of the demonstrators surrounded a meeting of House Democrats.
As Democrats met in the Ways and Means hearing room, a group of what became about 100 protestors assembled outside of the room.
As the Congressmen left, they started chanting: "Kill the bill, kill the bill, kill the bill!"
Rep. John Lewis was the first Democrat to leave the meeting, and as the civil rights icon turned to the crowd and told them that hes voting for the bill, a protester yelled back at him: "Baby killer!"
Later, a man yelled a charged slur at Rep. Barney Frank just after the Massachusetts congressman had walked down the hall. Others in the crowd admonished the screaming man, with a female protester yelling back: We don't need that!"
After the Frank remark, Capitol Police warned the crowd about their behavior, and one officer said that they would have to leave if they didnt calm down. After the meeting ended, the crowd dispersed on its own.
Also, if CNN was there, why is there no video/audio of the incident?
Next, they’ll find a “noose” hanging from a West Wing doorknob after some Catholic group tours the White House.
Dear 0marxist: You have 18 hours to “find that noose” before Sunday’s vote to nationalize 1/6 of the USA economy and transform us into a Communist dictatorship.
Most criminals can lie and believe it themselves. Lewis is of questionable sanity anyway, and Frank.... well need say no more.
As usual the DC Chapter leads the way!
I beg to differ on Bwaney..a teabagger doesn’t fart when you take the meat out.
It is probably a lie. These leftists would no hesitate of have someone arrested who called them bad names. Without a police report, it’s bs. And frankly, I don’t care if people are mad enough to call these marxist freaks names. They are lucky they have yet to be harmed in more serious ways for what they have done to this country in the name of their superior nasty selves.
I hop they get their butts kicked.
We will officially be a dictatorship as of tomorrow. ANYONE PREPARED FOR WHAT WE NEED TO DO MONDAY ?
Barney Frank is a sodomite. Why would CNN try to say he isn’t?
So? What’s the big deal? Freedom of speech, deal with it. It’s just words and there will always be words that some people will use to offend others. Get over whiners. Blacks call each other that word all the time. Deal with it.
The Tea Parties are easy for Democrats and Lefties to infiltrate. I’ll not vote for them either.
Well I never saw it.
Kristinn: He passed by me and I took video, no N-word, unless “Kill the bill” has now become the new “n-word.”
Thank you fr going. Have a good weekend.
