Video Surfaces of John Lewis "N*****" Incident at Tea Party Protest on Capitol Hill
Saturday, March 20, 2010 | Kristinn

Posted on 03/20/2010 7:55:48 PM PDT by kristinn

A video has surfaced this evening of the incident today involving civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) and Tea Party protesters on Capitol Hill.

Rep. Lewis has alleged that he was called a n***** by the protesters.

Rep. Andre Carson (D-IN), who was walking with Rep. Lewis, says he heard the word n***** fifteen times.

Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO) claims "It was a chorus" of people yelling "n*****."

The video, filmed by Marooned in Marin and posted at YouTube, shows Reps. Lewis and Carson walking together, with Rep. Cleaver several yards behind as they fight their way through the Tea Party patriots like they were in 1965 Selma, Alabama.

Reps. Chaka Fattah (D-PA) and Maxine Waters (D-CA) are also walking behind Lewis in the video.

View the shocking video here.

I don’t hear the supposed offensive language. They are just saying “Kill the bill”.

Did Bull Connor sick his dogs on them too?

I am not going to waste my time watching the video but I would guess if it was true some Kos Kiddies got loose from their parents basements.

I only heard “KILL THE BILL” uttered various times. Is that racist thing to say now?

So they heard the short i vowel sound in “Kill the bill” and assumed people were shouting the N-word? Figures.

Technically it is true. They called each other that when they got away from the crowd.

Rep. Lewis: Hey Cleaver you’re a n*****

Rep. Andre Carson: Did someone just call you a n******

Rep. Emanuel Cleaver: That’s what I heard. Hey Lewis. You are a ******** too.

Rep. Andre Carson: Oh my. I heard it again

There is no low they are not willing to sink to in trying to discredit the American people.

No idea who these complainers are. Just a guess: are their skin tones a wee bit darker than your average American, and do they have a history of such complaints?

Amd just where the heck is Tawana Bradley today anyway???

This is the tactic they also use when they feel threatened. It’s not going to work for them forever. There was no racism there.

I didn’t hear the alleged epithets in the tape. It would probably feel to the black legislators, particularly John Lewis, like crossing the bridge in Selma. If it was tea partiers behaving as accused, they may have destroyed the effort to kill the bill. With radical groups given permits for Washington today, could this be race card street theater?

Somewhere around :45 maybe, maybe, something similar to n****r could be heard in the background. Maybe...

But in the meantime these protesters are just tea-baggers, racists, astroturf, nazis, homophobes, nativists, vigilantes, etc.

I heard the word a few times too, but everyone saying it was black and they didn’t look like they were with us. I wanted to as them if that was an okay word again, but decided to save my ammo.

I only heard “Kill the Bill”. Maybe you have to listen to it backwards or something to hear the bad stuff. Maybe they really said “I buried Paul”.

Did I miss something? I just listened to this clip 3 times — NO “N” word, no racist language — just a LOT of unhappy Tea Party Patriots yelling KILL THE BILL.

THE RACE CARD WON’T WORK on us this time! We will not shut up. Now, you may stir up your constiuency against us — but do you REALLY think that’s wise, Mr. Socialist? Really?

Wish a Socialist would actually answer that question on the Sunday AM shows tomorrow...

I think these men are lying through their teeth. All I can hear is 'kill the bill' and booing.  Personally I think they chose there path to the capital on purpose in hopes of hearing the 'n' word.

Lewis was playing the latest from 50 Cent on his IPod, and the N-word was spoken every other line. He’s evidently confused.

It’s my understanding the complainants are all members of the CBC which IIRC is a group that has repeatedly abused the race card advantageously multiple occasions in the past.

Yes I am calling them liars.

Was it the black female tea party protester that called them the N -word? LOL

Nope, not one single instance of the "N" word. That is nothing more than the fevered, hyped-up imagination of somebody who is at the pinnacle of power but has still convinced himself that he is a "victim" because he's black. Stupid, stupid, stupid.
