Skip to comments.Republicans denounce racist and anti-gay slurs
Posted on 03/21/2010 11:10:03 AM PDT by Extremely Extreme Extremist
Following reports yesterday that black and openly gay Democratic lawmakers were subjected to spitting and epithets from anti-health care reform protesters outside the Capitol, Republican leaders said Sunday that such incidents were "isolated" and "reprehensible."
On CNN's "State of the Union," Rep. Mike Pence (R-Ind.) denounced the use of such slurs "in the strongest terms possible."
House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio), said on NBC's "Meet the Press" that the "isolated incidents" were "reprehensible."
Later on the same program, Michael Steele, the Republican National Committee's first black chairman, agreed that the incidents were "reprehensible," and added, "we do not support that."

And the Repubs believe the LIES of the Socialist WHY?
So, where is the proof that anyone yelled a racial slur?
I saw videos and heard no racial slurs...sounds like typical democrats lying again. Why does anyone take their word for anything by this point?
There were no incidents, you morons. The whole thing was manufactured before the first protesters even showed up.
Why are these Repubs so spineless? What a bunch of wimps!!
Why denounce something that probably never happened? Why not denounce accusations (with out proof)?
“Rep. Mike Pence (R-Ind.) denounced the use of such slurs “in the strongest terms possible.””
Pence might be the stupidest Republican. He fell for this trick. Also, he fell for the Bush’s comprehensive immigration scam, thinking there was really a public movement for it, falling for the agitprop, and offering his own plan, really a plan written by cheaper labor interests, and felt himself presidential material.
In fact, the Democrats probably looked for Pence on this on purpose. They knew he would fall for it.
If there were any slurs, it was probably libs doing it. Of course, the spineless party immediately apologizes.
And the maroons fall for it and qualify it for a response.
Or are they anti tea party just as the dim's are?
And people here think Repubs will REPEAL this bill?
That is hilarious.
It is about time we stop depending on pols in DC for anything whatsoever.
He needed to qualify that with a big IF, and also a promise to look into the incidents.
Scratch Mike Pence off the list for higher office.
So, even if someone did say something (not at all proven), no one should be trying to spread blame to a group of several million nationwide. What reckless, irresponsible stereotyping that is.
I'm sure all the leftist in the US agree, they've condemned stereotyping so often in the past.
You better believe the mainstream media is playing these lies about racially charged taunts as the number one story of the day. The GOP needs to do better reconnaissance before playing into the Democrat/media take on what really happened.
Okay, when I wade through the protestors I want you to spit on me.
You still got the rebel flag and the hat that says "The South shall rise again?"
There were no racist terms..Good God..the Republicans fell for the crap hook line and sinker
Where is the video showing this??????
It does not exist, because it did not happen.
But the RINO GOP hates the Tea Parties. They know we are going to kick them out and make them form their own third party of "moderate" RINOs.
That’s total BS. 200 years ago, get the fk over it.
And even FOX News seems overly eager too repeat... nay.. reinforce.. this apparently false meme of widespread racial slurs from the protesters, despite growing evidence to the contrary.
“Why denounce something that probably never happened? Why not denounce accusations (with out proof)?”
Because they are idiots.
These are Democrat/Insurance Party tactics to shame ultra liberals into voting for the bill. The Tea Partiers are the bogeymen to invoke, the Republican politicians useful idiots to prove it true.
Looks like Pelosi is worried.
Dems trying to create a wedge between the GOP and Tea Partiers.
get rid of these spineless morons
Instead of apologizing how about demand the Lame Stream Media provide the proof?
Yep, every time.
“The Dims and the MSM need to denounce stereotyping.”
Why? That is there expertise.
So tell me again why do people want to stay with the OP(formerly the GOP)?
More communist propaganda
Conyers looking for a big time payoff. Like his WIFE.
THEY ARE TRYING TO STEAL OUR FREEDOM. Anything short of bullets being fired at them is only because the American People are showing considerable restraint. A little bit of name-calling (even if the stories are true) is the least they should have to endure as they vote to end the United States as we have known it for over 200 years.
they’ve condemned stereotyping
While at the same time, attempting to perpetuate it via their Diversity programs.
Diversity = Embracing stereotypes
Why don’t the dumb asses look at the video and call the democrats out as liars? Are they really as stupid as they act?
While they routinely call us every awful name they can imagine, we dutifully turn the other cheek, and no one else holds them to account. When anyone among us thoughtlessly or in anger uses a pejorative against them, they go into instant paroxysms of outrage, all the while knowing we will quickly apologize - even if it never happened.
Evil uses goodness against itself and always has.
What a bunch of weenies! Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me! Get over it dumacrats!
Did anybody record the evidence? If Repubs “F” this up I’m done with them forever and our Nation is Socialist.
What is racist are the liberal policies that continue to reward bad behavior in minorities, that keep minorities dependent on the rich white racist and uncle Tom Democrats while feeding them the lie that it’s all whitey’s fault.
When the excrement hits the fan you can count on the R’s to try to quell things down... With legitimacy a new REVOLUTION has begun, a REVOLUTION to uphold the constitution, and the f’ing R’s will say, “now put down your grievances and pitchforks and go home, we’ll take care of it...” and we wind up further down the road to BIG F’ING BROTHER. Obama is all about the Hope of Audacity and the R’s are all about pissing themselves.
Yup. The whole thing was staged.
Just why were a bunch of black Congressmen traipsing through the crowd with the cameras conveniently focused on them?
We all know why.
It's a set from the get, and clueless clowns like Boehner just roll over.
Guys like John Lewis been doin' the hustle for 50 years now
The Rats are going back to their playbook from last summer, since the media went along with it then too.
True, but one quesion to the inquirer would be ...do you have PROOF. May I see the video.
