Good video of spitting incident http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f7wYt9jee2U
Please change title to something more descriptive.
Or better yet, zot it.
In addition, now the Democrat members of Congress are claiming they've been threatened while others are claiming they were called derogatory terms, all by the tea partiers I presume.
Doesn't this seem awfully similar to the 2006 Duke University lacrosse case??
Doesn’t look like intentional offensive spitting to me. Just an impassioned protester and Cleaver got too close. JMO FWIW.
I didn’t see any intentional spitting. I think the guy was just yelling and it was accidental spray saliva if anything.
Hardly a spitting incident. I didn't here what he said.
He seemed to be chanting "kill the bill" along with everyone else.
The female police officer didn't react as if it was an assault.
The politicians were afraid.You could see it, until they reached the safety of the steps.
I need to learn how to post.. sorry
OMG..the guy was just yelling ‘Kill The Bill’ and perhaps...maybe a little excited spittle got on him, but it wasn’t deliberate by any means.
I would say this is evidence that it never happened at all...hence why the guy wasn’t arrested on the spot!!
At most this appears to be a “say it don’t spray it” type incident. Cleaver is exaggerating to the point of falsification here.
Yes, if there was spitting (you can’t see you just see the reaction which could be real or acting) it was the “say it don’t spray it” sort of thing.
BS, the guy was yelling KILL the Bill.
Plus, they were trying to antagonize the crowd, by showing a cell phone toward them and taking pictures. Intimidation tactic 101. Not only that, for someone who got spit on, he had a delayed reaction in wiping it off AND then couldn’t even identify the person who allegedly spat upon him.
Still don’t see what the big deal is. A protestor may have spat upon him, but he and his cohorts decided to use our Constitution as toilet paper so I say we ended up worse than he did.
Yes, I just see a guy yelling “Kill the Bill” very passionately. “Say it, don’t spray it”, as you said.
a capitol cop was right behind the creep.....she did nothing, if anything was intentional he would have been arrested right there.....
and why did the politicians use that entrance to enter the Capital, I thought they have a special train and tunnel under the capital...
they just wanted to start trouble, all the protesters looked peaceful JUST LOUD.
Why doesn’t FOX show this video? Why is FOX feeding the fire? Fox is a sellout thats why !!!
considering they used to hang traitors, spitting doesn’t seem so bad.
More interesting is when Cleaver?? returns with the black cop and is right in front of the supposed perp, he plays it like the guy isn't even there.
I didn’t either, the guy was clearly just yelling “Kill the Bill”...and I watched it at least 4 times to be sure. If this Cleaver character was so worried about his safety, he shouldn’t have walked so close to the guy, he was practically in his face to begin with.
True, the female Capital Police Officer didn’t react in any way to the “spitting incident”. But why did the man leave and then bring back a male Capital Police Officer? And then be unable to identify the “spitter”.
Here’s another view:
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
I’d dump a whole bucket of spit on those traitorous bastards if I knew I could get away with it.
They deserve no less.
OMG..you are right, I didn’t finish watching it to the end. The guy is right there...yet the congressman acts like he doesn’t see him. Very strange.
“I think the guy was just yelling and it was accidental spray saliva if anything.”
Exactly! And the white female cop beside him couldn’t have done something? He had to go get a black policeman to get assistance?
Interesting also, is the video showing the return with a cop to find the “spitter” routine; and the video confirms that the “Spitter” hadn’t moved ... but the congresscritter (looking around while right next to “spitter”) kept looking around and pointing elsewhere.
I don’t see anything except a guy making a megaphone of his hands to yell “Kill the Bill” louder.
Just think, summer isn't even here yet....wait till it gets hot ;(
If so he didn't witness it at all,just the aftermath.
“Looking at the comments below the clip, someone named “Tea Party Patriot” made a vulgar and racial remark. The agents provacateur (sp?) are out in force. I predict a Reichstag Fire-type incident in our future.”
Yep..check out his join date and comment history:
This guy is an agent of the left. No doubt!
I don't know anyone thinking this way. However, defeat at the ballot box in Novemnber is still all systems full speed ahead!
There was no spitting. There was no shouting of racist epithets. None of what was reported actually happened. The sources for these reports were Democrats hoping to damage conservatives’ reputations. There was no video, no audio, no independent third-party corroberation, nothing.
Yeah, that was nothing there.
That’s like being within 3 feet of Barney Fwank anytime he’s speaking.
I think the guy in the dark shirt just got a bit carried away. He has his hands cupped around his mouth to amplify his voice, and he is shouting "Kill the Bill" at the Congressman.
He may have inadvertently sprayed the Congressman, as he is practically shouting in his ear.
There is a police officer literally right behind the Congressman, and she apparently didn't think it warranted anything but encourage the Congressman to keep moving (watch her hands).
The politicians KNEW if they walked a gauntlet they would not be warmly received. Not being warmly received is a far cry from personal attacks. Never trust a democrat. My brother’s wife just left the DEMOCRAT PARTY after this health care debacle. The dems are going to see a drain on their party starting NOW.
There was a security escort right there. She didn’t grab the guy so it couldn’t have been what they’re making it out to be.
If some stray spittle came out of smeone’s mouth while they’re shouting that is normal. I didn’t see it but the Congressman obviously reacted to something.
But It wasn’t like it was intentional, like a hock ‘em back and let fly ala Rose on the Titanic.
Remember Bambi told his operatives to have “courage”. They can’t because they are all sellouts.
Someone in that group with cleaver, and lewis (I think it may have been Jessie Racist Jr.) has a camera and it looks like he is recording video of the crowd as they pass through it. He was only a few steps ahead of Cleaver and I noticed that he did point his camera at the guy that Cleaver said had spit on him. I have been wondering when somebody will ask him to show us his video to show that some spitting or name calling took place. If he had caught some of it on his video i am sure that it would have been all over the state-run news media by now.
