About those racial slurs allegedly tossed at black congressmen yesterday
The American Thinker ^ | March 21, 2010 | Rick Moran

Posted on 03/22/2010 3:15:49 AM PDT by Scanian

I find it fascinating that in all the reports in the MSM on the story involving racial epithets being shouted at black Congressmen, very few mention that the only evidence for these racial slurs comes from the Congressmen themselves.

And they'd never lie about something like that, right?

Dan Loesch has a video of the Congressmen in question walking past tea party protestors and, while the slurs might have been shouted before or after the video, they are not being used while this particular camera was rolling:

Can someone get me up to speed on this? I have seen only a couple of threads talking obliquely about such behavior, but no news accounts.

Thanks.

Disputing stories of racial epithets being shouted at black Congressmen, as related by black Congressmen, is racist.

If it was done, I believe it was done by Liberals, doing their best to blame conservatives and get sympathy for the bill.

I really couldn’t care less if these congressmen were offended or not.

Three congress critters slandered protesters, saying they used the “n-word”. But there was a lot of film rolling, and the only thing anyone could hear was “Kill the bill.”

For more information ...

“Can someone get me up to speed on this?”

Another racists claimed he was spat on by a tea partier. My comment at the time was:

“No one is going to waste their good saliva spitting on something despicable.”

The lack of evidence has not stopped the progressives and their lamestream media reporting this garbage as fact. If anything was shouted it was probably ACORN plants who did it.

Hey, I’m with you. Our country was gang raped last night, and folks are worried that some racial epitaph may have been uttered. When Geraldo was on FOX I switched to CNN for awhile last night, and one of the reporters from the floor was saying she heard someone yell “Baby Killer” when Stupak was speaking.

Meanwhile, our country’s future was being sucked dry. These people are like terrorists. They use our common decency against us.

Tea Partiers should play the same game, saying the Congressmen shouted "Whitey" and "Honky" as they passed through the crowd!

What? You can't just take our word for it?

Since they’re going to accuse of us racism, even if it doesn’t occur, it should be ok to just start using the racial epithets again. Let’s return to the race relations of the 50’s!

Well....There it is.

These left-wing, good-for-nothing, self-serving sob’s offend the heck out of me.

Why do you think Tea Partiers should lie. The enemy uses the lie, we need to always tell the truth.

Thanks for that. All I can say, having once lived in Lewis’ racial spoils of a district is I don’t believe him.

The congresscritters claim that the Capital police protected them. The one that claims he was spat on claims the spitter was arrested but he declined to press charges. However, the Capital police spokesperson says no one was arrested and they know nada, zip, zilch about racial epithets.

The mere act of voicing an opinion different from those of these black Congressmen is in itself racist.

Shame on us all!

IMO, using a racial slur is a moron’s way out. There are so many more colorful and intelligent ways of insulting them.

And the spitting thing, I can’t really be mad about that. These asshats are spitting in our faces as we speak.

No sarcasm. Lying will not work when you are up against people who lie as a profession. Lies will come back and bite you in the butt. Been there, done that, got the T shirt. ;0(

“I really couldn’t care less if these congressmen were offended or not”

Correct. Who cares if he was called the n-word? The communist pig has earned the contempt heaped upon him.

This is a left wing propaganda ploy to conjoin Kenyan Care as a civil rights issue.

It is the truth, and by definition, it is not offensive.

Have any key words for me to research on him? I’d like to find examples of his slanders.

Read some speech transcripts or releases from his office. It is just the general mindset of the permanently offended and looking for offense.

More likely to be mentally unstable than a deliberate slanderer perhaps?

That and a chronic race baiter and attention whore. Some of his actions and comments regarding incidents in this area ie Atlanta are very telling.
