Skip to comments.Andrew Breitbart Offers $10,000 Prize for Anyone Who Can Document Tea Party Protesters Yelling

Considering that some of the staffers within proximity of the alleged slurs were reportedly pointing cameras toward the crowd, this would seem like easy money if the story is true. As Michael Moynihan pointed out earlier this week, the anecdote has been presented as fact all over the journalism world.

Hmmmmmm, something tells me he won’t be losing that $10,000.
I love this...let the fruitcakes prove their bulls*t allegations...someone probably yelled “the Congressmans are near.”
Or spitting! I saw that video. I saw no spitting. I did see an ostentatious wiping off of the face and a returning with a security guard.
I saw that.
And wasn’t that whole marching through the barricades thing staged to try and provoke something they could complain about?
GOOD for Breitbart!
Doesn’t he know accusing a Black of lying is racist?? Man some cameraman is going to make a fortune. hehe
Pray for America
Agreed. This is great. We need much more of this kind of thing. Can we send it Republicans, and tell them to find their, um, backbones, and start expressing some righteous anger?
Just asking, have any of the democrats there ever made this accusation in public?
I think my money is perfectly safe in my pocket and will not go to support continued segregation.
just get one SEIU plant in the crowd, and another with a video camera.
Beware of doctored videos with scummy libs trying to do voice-over blends...
GOOD ON ANDREW BREITBART!
Andrew Brietbart is a great guy. Andrew, Hannah and James are awesome.
YES! I don’t trust ANYTHING the Dims
provide as proof .. and like Allegra said,
they can be easily faked these days.
The more the press does this the madder we will be in November..The GOP should tell them to put up or shut up...
Why does Reason have a UN flag in it’s header?
Thank You Andrew
Right on. Put up or shut up!
Breitbart, Coulter, Beck, Palin.
Does the Left have blood shooting out of their eyes yet?
Gee, do they get whiny when they’re poked, or challenged to tell the truth!
This whole episode was fabricated in an effort to discredit the Tea Party. There is NO WAY the Capitol Police would have tolerated that many epithets without stepping in to control the situation. And they didn’t, because they didn’t have to.
He won’t be losing that money.
Andrew, how about donating it to me when no one claims it? Please?
Not really very hard...I do some audio editing.
I would love to get one of those protest videos and edit the soundtracks to include some audio clips from Blazing Saddles and then send it to some media outlets as proof that there were people using the "n" word.
SEIU, they beat the tar out of Kenneth Gladney.
Related...NPR mocks Breitbart.
Jesse Jackson should be calling right now to collect that money with his two up-close video recordings.
And watch this video:
Listen carefully at 3:31, and again at 3:51. After much discussion on the previous thread, many thought there were a couple of people shouting "traitor".
With all the background noise, it's hard to tell for sure. But, I think it's possible it could be mistaken for something else, especially by someone that was looking for a confrontation.
Listened to them both carefully and someone might have yelled “traitor”. Mostly it just sounds like a wall of noise.
Lies are politically effective. That’s why they’re used. Lies will work here in America, just like they would anywhere else. If you expect politicians to be ethical, you’re kidding yourself.
“He [Barney F] looked at me[Kay Fischer, a protester from North Carolina, interviewed by FOX] and said, ‘F-— you,’” she said.
Shortly after that, she said, a tall man with brown hair, who hadn't been chanting with the other protesters at all, walked up and said “fag” to Frank.
This has started to sprout some conspiracy theories.
Fischer said the protesters immediately admonished him and told him not to say things like that.
“I have gay friends. ... There were a bunch of people moaning like, ‘Oh God,’” she said.
But she said the guy “disappeared” quickly and that was the end of it.
Fischer said she has no idea where he came from, and alleged he was a plant, though she couldn't prove it.
“I think it was staged,” she said.
I firmly believe, with the knowledge of Pelosi & Co, this is a conspiracy by SEIU or moveon.org or ACORN or...
They all could have taken the underground tunnels as they usually do.
Good thinking, Andrew.
Of course the democrats are doing this. It’s all alinsky. They can’t be honest, and they can’t even come up with an original tactic.
Hey democrats, what’s it like to have an ideology that can’t be sold on its own merits?
Yeah, that's pretty much what I heard, too. But, if I turned up the volume and suffered through it, I could hear something that sounded like "....er". (I don't recommend if it someone else in the house, or even next door. :-)
I couldn't quite tell what it was, but someone on the other thread said they could hear the long "a" phoneme in the first syllable.
Maybe an audio engineer skilled in filtering can clean up the sound and isolate those voices. But, it's certainly not the chorus repeated 15 times, as claimed by Lewis.
Of course it is. But the MSM has fallen for it.
If I had to guess it's ACORN getting back for the pimping they got, with John Lewis staffers in charge.
My kind of guy!
This is why Rush Limbaugh used to refer to them as “The Drive-By Media”. (I believe the more relevant description currently is “The State-Controlled Media”)
“Drive-By Media” is an apt description. They approach a situation like this, throw a accusatory “grenade” into the crowd, then drive off to the next story.
They aren’t interested in whether or not these slanders are true. It is the accusation that is important. So, nobody on NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, Fox, NYT, WaPo, LAT etc. is EVER going to circle back and even consider a correction or retraction, not even a one-liner smack dab in the middle of page 18.
I do think Tea Party events need to be self monitored more so than other groups. It would be too easy for a plant to show up and yell then split. The damage will be done because the media is all about taking the one instance and making it a headline.
Now if you could catch someone in the act, expose him or her as a plant, trace them back to their source, then the whole thing would backfire in a big way.
It’s okay for generalizations to be made as long as it involves some type of conservative function. The left and Obama require an enemy or something to fire up the sheeple bacause they can’t argue their beliefs on merit alone.
He is a good man . Where are the rest of the people like him in the news business?
But haven’t they heard? Congressman Andre Carson heard the n word fifteen times. He counted them.
The lie has spread to the foreign media. I believe this is the real target since most Americans know the truth. Are the international cooks setting us up for an excuse to send in blue helmets if we have unrest?
Breitbart’s quite a media genius. I wish him well, there are only a few with any backbone.
You have to at ONCE, get off DEFENSIVE, get off the ropes, and go into OFFENSIVE mode. 新高山登れ、トラ！トラ！トラ！ Climb Mt. Niitake. Tora! Tora! Tora!
And proceed to pound the sh*t out of them, refashion the debate in their terms and change/hijack/control the "narrative" from the Libs.
Right now the narrative (or rather "set-up") is that "Right Wingers who are racists were ugly in their attacks on black congressmen who were only trying to help the American people so therefore (as in Mark Furman's "N" word), the whole rational, intellectual debate is moot, and the fait d'accompli is that the entitlement side should win by default due to injustice suffered." Do they REALLy think we are THAT stupid!!?? My foot!
Historic Bullcrap City!
The narrative needs to be: "Democrats planted people in Tea Party crowds to cause trouble as mini-Reichstag Fire set-ups, and sent them out to attack Democrat offices and blame it on Conservatives, and furthermore made charges in public which cannot be backed up by any eyewitnesses or videotape, therefore show their desperation and also give more creedence as to why their side is IMMORAL and their legislation and assertions should be repudiated."
There. Fixed it.
It's not violence when THEY do it...(/sarc)
