Skip to comments.The Race Card Canard
Posted on 03/22/2010 4:39:01 PM PDT by Abakumov
The most despicable smear to come out of weekend rallies in Washington were unsubstantiated charges that Obamacare protesters shouted racial slurs at black members of Congress walking from the Cannon House Office Building to the Capitol. No evidence backs this up.
This story was first peddled by Rep. Andre Carson, Indiana Democrat, who seemed "almost giddy" telling the tale to the press, according to a Washington Times reporter who was there. Many news organizations reported these charges uncritically even though the people making the claims were the primary political beneficiaries of the tales.
No such epithets can be heard on video posted by Kerry Picket on The Washington Times Water Cooler Blog, which shows the representatives in question during their walk....

He told the LIE the MSM wanted to hear and now the facts don’t matter.
Liberals school of Alinsky plants liberals at conservative functions to insight radicalism if there is any racial overtness or homophobia displayed during rallies involving Conservatives you can bet money its liberals doing it.
Liberals using the race charge to shut down political dissent that in itself is more dispicable and more anti-American then any racist could be.
Ironically, the overriding agenda of the Ubanga administration is reparations, through the back door.
they never have truth on their side so they have to lie....thats what they do for a living.
Ya know.........one side of me thinks this: To hell with ‘em. They’re going to say this s**t anyway, so unload. Just go for it.....say ANYTHING you wish to this scum. Go ahead and let it ALL fly.
Truth no longer matters, so we may as well start playing by the new rules on the table.
I heard they called Barney Franks a Homo.
I guess Mr. Carson would have a pretty good idea as to how to discredit a large group of people.
Well if the tutu fits.........
They called him the “banking queen” (remember that parody song that Rush played about him last summer?).
Imported SEIU goons have been known to act as agents provacateurs on special occasions!
And as I said earlier, we pay these clowns, if they cannot take a few verbal taunts, they can quit.
“unsubstantiated charges that Obamacare protesters shouted racial slurs”
Yet the rino-king Steele was on Shep Smith saying they did happen and was apologizing for such behavior. What an arse.
Franks is a homosexual. What’s the problem?
Steele really said this on FoxNews?
REALLY? Please tell me no...
Who is Steele to apologize for anything that patriots do?
The people there were there on behalf of all of us, not the GOP.
Michael Steele needs to go—he is such a tool.
O’Reilly is discussing this story right now on Fox. Let’s see if he accepts the Carson/MSM story uncritically.
Did anyone see the report of what the pro-obamacare folks did to the Dick Cheney effigy?
Yes he did. In addition he said the GOP should not alienate people in the immigration debate but should welcome new arrivals.
What does he want, my oldest son?
I love that song. My other favorite is “In a Yugo”. I think it was an Elvis song, “In the Ghetto”.
Remember, in the view of the Press, it is not up to the members of Congress to provide proof they were insulted, it’s up to the crowd to prove they weren’t.
BOR just said that the “right wing” is waaaay too worked up over HusseinCare’s passage.
The only “racism” that exists is that to bully whites.
“No confetti. All right, go race cards, go race cards. We need more race cards. All race cards! All race cards! Keep going! Come on, guys, lets move it. Jesus! We need more race cards. I want all race cards to go, goddammit. Go confetti. Go confetti. More confetti. I want more race cards. What's happening to the race cards? We need more race cards.
“We need all of them coming down. Go race cards- race cards? What's happening race cards? There's not enough coming down! All race cards, what the hell! There's nothing falling! What the f*** are you guys doing up there? We want more race cards coming down, more race cards. More race cards. More race cards”
Well.....he is. He crows about it.
Exactly and well written.
Carson is in the House of Representatives because his late grandmother used to occupy the seat. He also called tea party folks “rent-a-protesters”.
Maybe we should demand reparations from the welfare recipients and their descendants to ours
Is that not a true statement though?
Democrats are the ultimate race mongers. They whip up racist impulses among their constituents against their enemies and then claim racism when there’s any amount racial tension that results.
When you crackers going to stop using racial slurs?
first peddled by Rep. Andre Carson, Indiana Democrat, who seemed “almost giddy” telling the tale to the press, according to a Washington Times ......
Ok so...Carson and the Washington Times are going to hear from me!!!!
These democrats are themselves the advocates of racism, racism and hatred of all kinds.
Alinsky coached the Klan to show up at Republican functions, to perpetrate false smears. This is what Carson, Cleaver and the rest are doing. They advance racism and racist groups by fueling the groups and sparking their hatred.
People like Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are advocates for the Ku Klux Klan and the Nazis.
The Times is reporting that it appears to be a lie. Read the paragraph and article carefully before writing a letter of complaint.
He was “almost giddy” like the kid that can’t keep a straight face while lying his little butt off
Barney Frank IS a homo-!!
We can bet they plan for it. They do this again and again. They are desperate and we are even gaining the attention of many African Americans and Hispanics who have previously voted Democrat.
They will lie and lie and lie again. That is Marxism — deceit. That is their “native language” in that Satanic ideology.
I think the knee grow allusion is just about worn out.
Love and compassion is not bound by skin color, nor is tyranny.
I don’t give a shite what color a politician’s skin is. It he is a nationalist socialist tyrant, then the race card is not even a subliminal defence IMHO.
This includes Fox News.
No. Can you direct me to the story? Thanks in advance.
That SOB has to go.
This AH Steele is living proof the GOP is being, has been infiltrated as I have been posting for years by the Leftists. RINO’s are agents of the Left “H” bent upon taking over the Republican Party as they did the Democrat Party.
This is why I keep insisting the RINO’s are extremely important to be rid of in the upcoming election along with all incumbent Democrats.
The Socialist/Democrats, and their RINO associates must fail.
Exactly the reason I changed my tagline a few months back!!!
It was the Washington Post that reported this lie as fact....as well as CNN,MSNBC, the New York times and all of the usual suspects.
I would like to encourage everyone to write the Washington TIMES at the comments link to this thread and thank them for printing this editorial. We all need to take the time to thank any media that reports the truth in this country or at least questions the Obama media’s reporting.
If I understand this right, the rep. carson reported this to a washington reporter. Though it never happened. The fact is he seems to have made an issue where there wasn’t one, I for one will call people out for using the race card or creating a situation.
I’m so sick of them keeping the issue alive...they create racism when they do this. But thank you for the heads up. One of those great things about the people here on FR. :)
