Tea Party Leader, GOP Condemn Racial Slurs Hurled at Black Lawmakers (IT NEVER HAPPENED!)
Fox News ^ | 3/20/2010 | fox news

Posted on 03/21/2010 9:54:24 AM PDT by tobyhill

Republican National Chairman Michael Steele and one of the organizers of Saturday's Tea Party rally strongly condemned the racial slurs that some black lawmakers alleged were yelled at them by some health care protesters as they headed for a procedural vote at Capitol Hill.

"I absolutely think it's isolated," Amy Kremer, the grassroots coordinator of the Tea Party Express, told Fox News on Sunday. "It's disgraceful and the people in this movement won't tolerate it because that's not what we're about."

Steele rejected the notion that the incident may make any association with the Tea Party Movement a danger.

"It's not a danger," Steele told NBC's "Meet the Press on Sunday." "It's certainly not a reflection of the movement or the Republican Party when you have idiots out there saying stupid things."

"As Leader Boehner said, that's reprehensible," he said, referring to House Minority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio. "We don't support that."

These wimps are apologizing for something that did not happen. We have the video of the so-called “incident”. Show a tape with the N-word and then apologize. We already conceded that it actually happen when that is in dispute!

No proof so it didn’t happen. The only video proof that has been offered didn’t include any slurs they claim it did.

When I heard this on TV I knew it was a lie — ‘our’ side doesn’t do such things. Where’s the proof? Audi??

If ANYTHING untoward WAS said, it most assuredly came from a ‘plant’ on THEIR side. Typical of their tricks.

Once again...these accusations are part of a plot to discredit and demoralize the opposition. It’s also meant to persuade the undecided to vote for this karp. The argument is that if the undecided vote against death care, they will be perceived as racist, something no politician wants. I’m reasonably sure it’s all made up...probably some propaganda concocted by Pelosi and/or the White House.

There are much worse things in life, in the world than being a racist. Oh right, but the liberals love sodomities, diddlers and junkies - all voting blocs for them.

Rule #1 of the anti-Salinsky rules should be “If they call you a racist, say ‘So what!’”

You can’t really prove a negative, so they have to prove their case and they can’t.

We were there when Lewis and his gang walked by. People were yelling “STOP THE BILL” so loud so it was impossible to hear anything else.

It’s an effective political strategy to undermine the tea party movement; the Democrats desire to build on Jimmy Carter’s outlandish remarks the equated the entire movement with racism ... Lewis has already played this trick ... so they just make this claim that they heard a racial slur hurled at them from the crowd ... the liberal media has been only to happy to push Obama’s legislation through the air waves and more than willing to discredit any movement that opposes his Socialist agenda. Remember, the Democrats tried to say that “tax cuts” were a code word for n****r. I remember Charlie Rangel saying that on Fox News long ago and I’ve seen some liberals online express the same notion that “kill the bill” is essentially a racial slur.

And .. there is a video available which shows the men walking through the tea partiers .. and the only words you can hear are boooooooing; and then they start chanting, “Kill the Bill”.

NOT ONE WRONG WORD WAS HEARD ON THAT TAPE.

And .. why did the men walk through the group in the first place, when the OTHER ENTRANCE INTO CONGRESS WAS FREE OF ANY PEOPLE.

Were they up to their usual .. RACE BAITING tactics ..??

I believe the answer is YES!! They just wanted to “create” a scene whereby they could ACCUSE WRONG DOING.

I’ve heard the “you’re a racist” karp since before Obama won (stole?) the election. Even those I thought were good friends, people I’ve know for a lot of years, said that I was a racist for not voting for him and that I don’t care about “the poor.” Many of them are still true believers. They may realize they are dupes when this man’s policies start hitting them in the wallet...among other places.

How to set up the Tea Party to look bad. And then have them stew in it. Agent-provocateurs, possible? (Anyone even dare to consider that?)

You who support the (spineless) Republicans who only think the election in November will by itself will do any good - need to consider that the writing is on the wall that the Congress will be made impotent in the wake of the coming Administrative jihad that will circumvent Congress. After all the polls even suggest no one like Congress withpolls at 19% approval. The pattern is already there in the FCC, EPA and other executive branch overrides. See this diagram for example.

Then also at the later date any attempt too to override a veto by the Obama regime in Congress will also be unlikely.

Better realize the takeover of the government is almost completely here as a possibility and that WAITING until November will only make the impotent Republican majority look silly when they hold an futile Congress in there hands as Obama walks past them.

Obama is saying he does not care - "Here take the Congress in Novermber" - only to distract the Republicans. He knows there is nothing he needs later there when the vast majority of private industry is taken over by his govt.

You’re correct .. when a family member or their child is stricken with a horrible disease and the “death panel” tells them it’s going to be months or years before they can get treatment; if they get treatment at all .. I wonder how supportive they will be.

I remember during the run up to the 2004 election, a co-worker said she hoped Hillary won the nomination because it WOULD BE HISTORIC - and she was going to register to vote just so she could be part of it. You can’t get much more ignorant than that.

Great idea .. because I have not heard one person on Fox reach that conclusion. And .. their last comment was full of pablum so I changed channels.

And .. it had to be obvious .. because the Congress building was full of people and they didn’t walk through the Tea Partiers .. and besides that .. HOW DID OBAMA GET INTO THE CONGRESS BUILDING WITHOUT HAVING TO BREACH THIS SAME CROWD. Obama didn’t go that way because he’s a coward.

Well, I suppose they felt they had to distance themselves, but they could have said, something like, IF this is true we condemn it, blah,blah. We will be reviewing all the videos we can find & try to identify this person or persons.

Guess they don’t want to call a respected congressman a liar.

Also I would not put it past the dummies to bring in someone who agreed
to be seen saying (in a ‘new’ made up video) something racist and later getting arrested some ‘place’ down the road, away from the actual crowd of course. Then they pay him (them) and they disappear.

They are not above any sort of evildoing to advance their agenda.

We see this everyday. We know who they are. They can’t hide any more.
Let’s keep their feet to the fire.
