Members of the Congressional Black Caucus who claim racial slurs were chanted are lying. There were no racist chants or remarks. These claims of tea party racism are a last minute attempt to discredit those who oppose Obamamcare. Listen at YouTube.

Not only that, but the protesters seemed too far away to be able to spit that far:)

To lie about this is worse than any epithet a stone hearted racist could come up with.

John Lewis is a racist in the first degree. His actions and words prove this beyond the shadow of any doubt.

But even if some racist remarks were shouted, it would be just the sort of thing the left would do: hire a few plants to mix in with the crowd to say and do stupid things like this in an attempt to undermine the movement. Of course the leftwing media would never look more deeply into who these people were.

I keep telling you folks what John Lewis or, for that matter any CBC member rants, mean absolutely nothing. The only people Lewis and company injure are Black Americans when they shoot their racist mouths off. Most Americans do not listen to this garbage anymore, no matter which side it comes from. And....Black Americans better come to grips with the fact that Barack Hussein Obama is a failed POTUS, not because he is Black, but because he is an incompetent empty suit, ego maniac, anti-American at heart.

So let me get this straight. We are debating the horrors of a supposed racial slur from an explicitly not to mention anti-white race group?

Are we really that deluded?

Thanks for posting this on a separate thread. It needs to be exposed. They even claimed a spitting incident.
As you can see in the video there is a Black Tea Party member in this crowd taking pictures.

And it never even occurred to that idiot Mike Huckabee that the claim might be a lie; he simply assumed that it was true on Fox last night.

The Congressional Black Caucus is a ‘racist’ organization by definition!

They don’t want ‘equality’, they want ‘special privileges’ because of the color of their skin.

We are all “AMERICANS”. If they want to eliminate racism and prejudice, then they should (at the very least) no identify themselves solely by the COLOR OF THEIR SKIN.

This was reported as news on my Fox and ABC local news last night. The strategy by the MSM is to portray Tea Partiers as racist to peel off support of independents.

Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Mo., won't press charges after being spat on by ...protestor (I call BS)

Tea party protesters use racial epithet against Georgia's John Lewis

ABC: Anti-ObamaCare Protest ‘Turned Very Ugly’ with ‘Racial and Homophobic Slurs’

All of these accusations have proven to be unfounded. No video or audio exists to support them and no charges were filed by Emanuel Cleaver.

Fox News is reporting these lies. I just e-mailed them and challenged them to provide evidence. Let them hear what you think about that at Friends@foxnews.com

Congressman Tim Ryan D-OH uses a homosexual slur against Tea Partiers on the floor of the House.

Plus, there was a claim by one of the three that they were spit on AND the Capitol Police arrested the spitter so they would just let the police handle it.

Pissant had a thread last night that confirmed the Capitol Police said they made no protestor arrests at all yesterday.

Of course it's a lie and the MSM of course are running with it. If it were true you would've seen a much more physical and no doubt confrontational reaction between the person who was supposed to have said it and that group of black Congressional Marxists, the way you saw with Ms. Barnella Frank's reaction, now that one I do believe that someone called him a faggot, but in his case if the shoe high heel fits....

I think we at least know who the REAL racists are in this country.

"Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal".
--James (Jim) Cone,
African American Religious Thought: An Anthology (Paperback)
by Cornel West (Editor), Eddie S. Glaude Jr. (Editor)

SEAN HANNITY: But Reverend Jeremiah Wright is not backing down and has not for years and in his strong stance on the teaching of black liberation theology is nothing new. He had the same things to say last spring when he appeared on "Hannity & Colmes:"

WRIGHT: If you're not going to talk about theology in context, if you're not going to talk about liberation theology that came out of the '60s, systematized black liberation theology that started with Jim Cone in 1968 and the writings of Cone and the writings of Dwight Hopkins and the writings of womynist theologians and Asian theologians and Hispanic theologians, then you can't talk about the black value system.

HANNITY: But I'm a — reverend

WRIGHT: Do you know liberation theology, sir?

I think the black TeaParty-ers are especially brave.
Look what happened to the black man at the one townhall meeting. He was singled out and beaten by the SEIU Union thugs and was hospitalized. Nothing happened to thugs.

I briefly met Lewis a few years ago in Las Vegas, waiting for the Walk signal and then crossing the street with him. I’ve forgotten what the hot button political topic was at the time, but I told him I hoped he would fail.

I still do.

Good point. The timing is the crucial thing here. The Dems who promoted this lie knew it would be debunked. But they are hoping it will not happen until after the vote. If the lie can sway even one undecided vote to yes then the DemonRat mission is accomplished.

Drudge and FoxNews need to know about this.

We were there when Lewis and his gang walked by. People were loudly chanting “KILL THE BILL”. They couldn’t have heard anything else.

Why are the likes of Steel, Rivera and Huckabe accepting the word of racists like Lewis?

And if there wasn't? So what?

Does that give us permission to be? Can we only have our rights and liberty if there is a black guy? Are we only allowed to stand up for ourselves, our culture and nation if there is a black guy?

Meanwhile race poltical and lobbying groups by the thousands most them implicitly anti-white exist in this nation. They have no problem being racial and grow stronger by the day yet most white people cower in fear of being called racist. We might as well pull the trigger now because the Marxist have us right where they want us. Running around in circle

I had not seen this video. I was standing right there when The CBC walked by and this guy is lying his ass off.

Hey Congressman Ryan your are a lying POS white trash, honkey. And guess what, you are going home to your trailer and your too much tattooed toothless white wife in November. Is that a racial slur?

But “Racial slurs hurled in health care protest” was the headline on our Sunday morning paper - so they achieved their goal - demonize us and call us racists.

I spent the past three hours debating with several people on the Charlotte Observer website - I post facts citing references, they call names.

Does the press really think that people who are opposed to the government takeover of health care will change their minds on that position if they think a racial slur was yelled?

The point is that the leftists push the lie that the Tea Party Movement is all white, with no minorities in it.

Speak for yourself, give up and give in to the velvet chains if you must, but the rest of us will keep fighting until our Constitutional Republic is restored to it's rightful position here in the USA

But not one word about a congressman on the floor of Congress calling Tea Partiers "teabaggers", which is verifiable. We need to get used to the fact that the rats and the media are the enemies of patriotic Americans, but since they have a lock on the major media outlets from which most people get their information, they are going to be portraying us as the enemy-ie, "domestic terrorists". It's already begun, and it will be ramping up as the rats become more and more emboldened to show their hands. The passage of BlackmailCare will give them a huge boost of confidence to come out in the open and push their agenda of turning America into a racist marxist state.

They want to destroy the strength of the growing Tea party movement. They want to marginalize conservatives in the eyes of the less informed “independent” who seems to be the deciding factor in elections.

You’re using the wrong terminology. Calling them Marxists will fly right over the heads of most democrats, who are too stupid to know what a Marxists IS.

I think we need to call them Congression Black Communists, to get the effect we’re going for. Eh, who knows.
