WASHINGTON (AP) A congressman who was spat on by a protestor on Capitol Hill says he is declining to press charges, but turns out the Capitol Police say they made no arrests.

Missouri Democrat Emanuel Cleaver was making his way through a group of angry protestors when the incident occurred. It was one of several ugly incidents in a day of protests against President Barack Obama's health care overhaul measure, which faces a House vote on Sunday.

WASHINGTON (AP) — A congressman who was spat on by a protestor on Capitol Hill says he is declining to press charges . . .

. . . once he found out that the whole incident (or lack thereof) was caught on tape.

always the victim. It’s ALL the Dems know how to do. God forbid, they help create jobs, balance a budget, etc...that would take hard work. Nah, much easier to go with the victim thing.

They’re looking America straight in the face and saying F*** YOU.

If they cram this down our throats, they’ll soon be wishing for the day when it was only a little verbal abuse and well place loogies hurled at them.

We’re NOT gonna take this sh!t!!!

Why not put a tag line on it and post it to refute the accusation. The only FRs that see what you have now are FRs going through the trouble of fighting through Robinson’s pesky posts about Romney and clicking to this thread.

Flashback:

Attendees at a Hilary Clinton for president event, I believe it was a kick off event in NY, actually did spit on a event planned Military color Guard, carrying a us flag.

I am SURE the LA Times reported on the REAL occurrence.

Cleaver ran Kansas City into the ground as a corrupt mayor.
He has fared no better in congress.

I say “Show Me” the evidence.
Videos pretty much say he is a liar.

All those cops didn’t twitch? Please...can we get this out to the press somehow? Get it to Fox? Did you hit all of their mailboxes with it? We should all send it to whoever we know...I’ll do it now, but no guarantee how many will need to be sent to get some through. Fox will play it.

The delusions of the black caucus are grandiose. They just knew it would be like Selma when they sashayed thru the crowd. To their disappointment, the crowd was civil as well as color blind. Although the orchestrated charade failed them, they went on with the lie regardless. Still stuck in the sixties, they totally missed the concept everyone has digital recording devices which can readily disprove any lies anyone might attempt later. Stuck in a time warp and delusional.

If it passes, we need to ensure that all the incoming Republicans are committed to undoing it and if the Dems try to stop us, we need to show them what fascism is really all about. I'm talking about a whole new level of political ugliness.

There’s a media blitz on it. A modus operandi. Too bad for them we have it on tape that it didn’t happen. Too bad for us that no one will see it. They’re worse than Pravda.

Well I actually registered at this rag and tried to post the following.

“What this man is doing is called LIEING and if he was to attempt to press charges he would be open to a charge of falsifying a police report. I direct you to a YouTube video of the supposed abuse. As you will see there where no racial slurs or spitting. They where seeing the rath of the American people who where yelling ‘Kill The Bill’. This is consistant with their rights to protest and to petition their government for redress. Look it up it is in the Constitution.

The fact is that this paper is reporting a rumor as if it was a fact. This is not reporting it is dictation of the Democrat parties talking points. The fact that you have chosen to call this abuse and to FALSELY report this tripe, The incident is alleged and by no means proved true, opens you up to a charge of LIABLE and it carries severe penalties in a civil action.

Please amend your story to correctly identify that the Congress person has ALLEDGED to have bean spit upon, a charge that is wholly unsubstantiated and PROVED to be inaccurate by video evidence.

The following video is what is called evidence, I suggest you start to employ actual reporters and not Democrat Party stenographers.

http://maroonedinmarin.blogspot.com/2010/03/prove-it-john-lewis-unless-kill-bill-is.html";

I have yet to see it post.

LYING DOGS.

Their problem is that WE all know NEVER ever go to a rally without a Video Camera, phone, witness etc etc.
They are shown to be the LIARS we always KNEW they were.

TPM should DEMAND a retraction.

The 'spatter' should be prosecuted. s/ And everybody knows 'good' Reverends never lie. AND this 'good' reverend, my House Representative, has all the evidence necessary to prosecute, send the 'spit' off for DNA testing.

The 'script' has been set for all the spitting secular Sunday morning shows, 'teabaggers' are racists, vulgar, redneck hicks.... and the Jon Stewart media will sound like trumpets.

I remember numerous reports in the MSM about various hard-Left groups such as ACT-UP! spitting on Conservatives and anyone who dared to disagree with them years ago, and at that time the Left poo-poohed the matter and said ‘no big deal, get a life’ when there was ample evidence that the spitting did indeed occur, unlike in this case.

It’s the Left that burns American flags, murders babies, makes signs equating President Bush with Hitler, burns effigies of President Bush, throws buckets of red paint on nice ladies who are wearing expensive furs, vandalizes cars with Republican bumper stickers, burns down homes in the name of ‘environmentalism’, steals elections by any means necessary, uses Union thugs as modern-day Brownshirts, SPITS ON PEOPLE and a host of other things that would take forever to put in writing.

This is the sort of thing that the Left does, not Conservatives.

Do not believe THIS man!

Besides being a liar, a crook, a racist pol and pastor, he lied and cheated the City of Kansas City when first elected mayor. He professed to attend a national conference of mayors but instead took the wife and kiddies to Disneyland -- and charged the entire trip to the city.

When found out, he again lied, claiming not to know that there were meetings that he never attended, then claimed that he had reimbursed city but never, ever did.

One year when KC was shut down from ice storm and all of his neighbors were without electricity, he secretly had his own turned on but kept lights off. Neighbors noticed smoke coming from furnace flue, Cleaver (Beaver, we lovingly refer to him as) again lied and claimed he was simply burning a fire in his fireplace --- yet had none!

The 'msm' is the vehicle of the party of liars and thieves, not sure they really give a hoot, what we know...

BamBamKennedy used the Foxes the other evening to give US his in our face, punk international salute. This so called episode of a special 'caucus' claiming they were jeered, sneered, spat upon is a common tool used by these liars to change the subject when they are losing.... and I fully expect all the Sunday morning shows to be all charged up focusing solely on how horrible these people were treated as they somehow found their way right in the midst of protesters.

as they somehow found their way right in the midst of protesters

Not going back to it right now, but if I recall correctly, one of the videos of the incident showed the congressmen walking in a direction that would have taken them well past the protesters, then one of the congressmen pointing toward the protesters, then the group of them changing direction by about 90 degrees to walk toward the protesters. IOW, it appeared they quite intentionally "found their way" through the cordon of protesters.

I'd like to know what the pointing Congressman was saying at that moment. I'm imagining something like, "Over There! Those Crackers will call us N*****!"

Or did the pointing Congressman spot a plant or provocateur?

EXACTLY!!!! For all we know the epithet could have been used by one of them as they caucused their way into the crowd. (IF uttered) These are the ACORN overlords that filled voter registration forms for the purpose of cheating in elections. So it is going to take more than their accusations for me to give their claims gravitas.... Timing is everything to these liars and cheats, and their Jon Stewart media is chiming in as if on cue.

Facts- and evidence-- don't matter anymore- It’s all about the narrative:

DOES CLYBURN OWE TEA PARTY PROTESTERS AN APOLOGY? The bogus racism card has been played so often that I no longer find such charges very credible. I’m sure, however, that, true or not, they’ll be played much more loudly than the indisputably true statements about the antiwar movement.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Short on hate: “The rally earlier today on the West Lawn in opposition to the health-care legislation before Congress had all the fingerprints of a somewhat organic celebration of democracy. There was a pretty focused message, but mostly displayed on handwritten signs. . . . As I walked around, if it weren’t for the congressmen and some right-wing organization types speaking, one might think people had gathered for an Independence Day celebration. There were smiles and babies and families and goodwill. Now and again I would run into some lone guy responding to a speaker with ‘then we’ll dismantle the government.’ But that guy also got weird looks — and not just from me. I was struck by how few mass-produced signs there were. Many groups might try to take credit for the rally, but concerned Americans are responsible for it.” Lots of pics at the link. And, by way of contrast, here are some photos from that antiwar rally today in DC. Note the Soviet-nostalgia T-shirt. But guess which one the press will cast as “extremist?”
