Skip to comments.LIARS! WHERE IS THE PROOF JOHN LEWIS AND OTHERS WERE CALLED "N*****" BY TEA PARTY PROTESTERS?

I'm calling Reps. John Lewis, Andre Carson, Emanuel Cleaver and the news media liars. Despicable liars. It's been nealy 48 hours since the three Democrat Congressmen made their claims that they were called "n*****" by Tea Party protesters.
The trio described a scene straight out of Bull Connor as they walked through protesters on Capitol Hill, claiming that a "chorus" of voices chanted "n*****" fifteen times at them.
With all the news media on the Hill, with all the protesters and liberal operatives on the Hill with video recorders and cellphone video devices there is no proof that has been presented. There are not even any 'earwitness' reports. Just the word of three Democrat politicans.
I know the Tea Party crowd. I've stood with them in Florida and D.C. at several rallies. I've never seen or heard the behavior claimed by the Democrats. I've never seen or heard that behavior in the hundreds of Free Republic rallies and protests I've participated in.
Is the cliche 'there's one in every crowd' true? Yes. We saw that with the recorded isolated incidents of Barney Frank being taunted for his homosexuality. But it wasn't a chorus and the person who said it was quickly admonished by other protesters.
The news media has gleefully smeared the Tea Party protesters without asking for proof of these outrageous charges of racism. Democrats lie, politicans lie. Race hoaxes are sadly commonplace. Where's the proof for this one? Nowhere.
Liars! Despicable liars.
“I’m calling Reps. John Lewis, Andre Carson, Emanuel Cleaver and the news media liars. Despicable liars. “
I’ve been calling them that for years. Didn’t need this latest fairy tale to know it .
Thousands of cameras, media, camera phone, etc, and yet not one picture or audio clip. Amazing......
Liberal liars always report being threatened and persecuted because this paints them as victim/hero. Next, their lips will be turning blue.
It worked for Jim Webb - never ‘misunderestimate’ the Dem’s capacity for prevarication and obfuscation. Remember the 11th hour revelation about a candidate’s DWI? The Dems are despicable @$$holes. This is all straight out of Alinsky’s playbook.
They don’t need proof... it’s out there now by the more-than-accomodating media... the story will never be revisited or refuted. It has served it’s purpose. It was planned... walking out in the public... arm in arm... ta-dah...Dem-Kabuki.
Methinks he hears what he wants (or in this case, expects) to hear.
There is no proof because it didn’t happen.
These people are playing their game again. Same old senario. Distract and lie.
Haven’t seen any evidence of the spitting incident either.
ABC had a video of the Barney Fwank incident, but the part where the offensive comment is supposed to be is bleeped-out.
Then Nancy has her little hand holding parade the next day trying to provoke another incident, but it didn’t work.
Tucker Carlson just said the same thing on Joe Scarborough’s radio show...that it’s all a big lie until he sees the tape. Because there has to be a tape with all the cameras that were around.
Could a troublemaker from SEIU or some other Union been inserted in the Tea Party to create these disturbisments?
Its very suspicious!
Deneen Borelli feels the same way! Send them this video!

You are apparently unfamiliar with the technique known as “Proof by Assertion”.
It is a legal principle generally only applied in cases of rape and hate crimes.
They ARE despicable. And they lie more than they tell the truth. It isn’t the game that matters to them- it is the result.
I personally have called them nincompoops...and proud of it.
Agree that you need to pin the media down on this. BUT, even if a crowd of thousands included one dumba$$ who DID use a slur, that doesn’t mean the Tea Party is racist, and we must be careful not to pin everything on “no slurs were ever uttered by anyone, ever ever.”
When it comes to nooses, being smeared with fecal matter, carved words in your forehead, Lacrosse teams, stuck accelerators, or claims of the use of politically incorrect language, etc. “alleged” does not apply...
This is an unwinnable fight. We should shrug our shoulders and accuse them of being the New Slavers.
They are so used to it, that they would lie when the truth sounds better.
Black lawmakers applaud Obamas health care reform (Compare to Civil Rights Act)
If racist chants did come from the T-Party group, who’s to say they weren’t infiltrated by leftist RATS who purposely caused the trouble? This is an old Sol Alinsky tactic.

There is footage. But there are NO slurs on any of it. Liars is exactly the term here. They’re liars.
All the time.
It's what they do.
Everybody is wrong, These Congress Critters ARE GUILTY OF A HATE CRIME,
Making False Allegations using Sexual Preference or Race as a Qualifier is a HATE CRIME against The People Of The United States
It’s a rant that represents the thoughts of so many of us. I hope you have the opportunity to make those points on the air - T.V. and radio.
Facts are hard taskmasters..
The msm has an agenda and no proof is needed to slander patriots.
The same place you’ll find evidence that people were saying it at Palin’s campaign rallies last fall.
They never were called any such thing.
Well after seeing the video online of them walking in unless someone got close enough to whisper it to them which I highly doubt they lied to make the tea partiers look bad.
The spitting incident was said to have had an arrest and the capital police were contacted and said no one was arrested yesterday so that to me disproved what he had to say.
Carson isn’t very big on factual accuracy. He called the tea party people who appeared outside his Indianapolis office “rent-a-protesters”.
Proof? We don’ need no stinkin’ proof!
Those Congressmen were recording their walk though the crowd on their phones - where are their videos?
This lie is being reported as truth all over the media. The comment sections are riddled with cries that the Tea Party are the wing of the KKK. This needs to be stopped! It will turn us into the Conservative equivalent of PETA - A Joke.
For the RNC to apologize for something that never happened is atrocious! It feeds the beast.
Do not turn a cheek because you know their wrong - punch them back.
“He called me a N_____.” African-Americans sometimes use this as though it was some sort of magic talisman.
Call them Democrats next time. That’s a bigger slur!
That is how many blacks refer to themselves, so what’s the big deal? Can we prosecute blacks that address other black people in this manner for hate crimes?
Why would the RNC apoligize for the TParty? They have NOTHING TO DO WITH US ... THAT’S THE WHOLE POINT!
If there were any slurs (and I’m not admitting there were), I am sure they were uttered by Democrat plants and not by genuine members of the Tea Party Movement.
Why were those particular congressmen walking through the tea party anyways? There was no reason for them to be there other than to foment trouble.
I noticed that Cleaver backed off his claim quickly once he discovered that there was audio/video tape of the alleged incident in existence.
Color me NOT surprised!
The left is trying to act as if the Tea Party is just a “group” of racist, hate filled malcontents, rather than a spontaneous uprising of American citizens from every walk of life, every race, who see what is happening to our Constitution and our way of life and are rising to stop the destruction of it.
The Tea Party participants represent most other American citizens who are unable, for whatever reasons, to physically be there to protest the unwanted “changes” being perpetrated on the American people. They are NOT some little “GROUP”. They are “WE THE PEOPLE”.
That “group” of anti-American leftists who are abusing positions of power to thwart the will of the people are the ones in the minority. They are trying to silence the majority just as they were able to do in the 1960’s when the majority failed to recognize how dangerous it was not to put a stop to their “counter-culture revolution” in its beginning.
The majority have allowed the political tactics of a small group of leftists pretending to be something other than what they are and sniping from the cover of political correctness, along with their useful idiots and fellow travelers, to prevent an effective response to their takeover of our country.
Check out the percentage of people in the Soviet Union who were actually members of the Communist Party. “In 1989 it (the Communist Party of the Soviet Union) comprised about 9.7 percent of the adult population of the Soviet Union. Among the “movers and shakers” of society, however, the percentage of party members was much higher.”
The “movers and shakers” can take over only if the majority of the people allow it to happen.
