Skip to comments.AP Can't Find Evidence of N-Word Use; Blames Tea Partiers for Posting 'Mislabeled' Video
Posted on 04/13/2010 11:19:15 AM PDT by PJ-Comix
Aha! ...Aha! Aha! Aha!
Associated Press writer Jesse Washington has investigated the March 20 incident in Washington, D.C. at which members of the Tea Party supposedly hurled the N-word at black Congressmen. Well, no recording of that word being used could be found but that hasn't stopped Washington from blaming the Tea Partiers...for posting the "wrong" video of that incident on YouTube. I kid you not:
Three Democratic congressmen all black say they heard racial slurs as they walked through thousands of angry protesters outside the U.S. Capitol. A white lawmaker says he heard the epithets too. Conservative activists say the lawmakers are lying.
What does the video show? Not much. Indeed, new interviews show that a much-viewed YouTube recording cited as evidence by conservatives was actually shot well after the time in question.
...A reconstruction of the events shows that the conservative challenges largely sprang from a mislabeled video that was shot later in the day.

If our congressional districts weren’t gerrymandered so as to create safe districts for selected, privileged groups, we wouldn’t be having half the trouble we’ve been experiencing with the congress lately.
The childishness and ridiculousness of the media spin of the tea parties would be laughable if the stakes weren’t so high.
Actually, it still is laughable, because the Dems must know even more than we do how much of an electoral shellacking they will get in November. Obama and his idiots got one big, temporary win on health care, but at the cost of cementing their reputation as leftists who can’t govern for another generation.
They are desperate, and running scared.
The MSM had cameras there, the Congressmembers had their cellphone cameras going.... still no evidence.
You are correct. When you cannot win a debate on the issues, make up your own issue and demonize the opposition.
Breitbart’s 100 grand reward is a more sure a bet than horse race with one horse racing in it.
If the discussion isn’t about race or racism, the Left really has little to say.
This is a twist on the Dan Rather ‘Fake but Accurate’ playbook.
You have that right.
So they claim that Pelosi (carrying her gavel) and the CBC walked back and forth, through the crowds, all day long?
Leftists have never attempted to “win” based on a logical discussion of the issues.
We need to recognize this, and just simply CALL THEM ON IT.
“What does that have to do with this issue?”
Yep, the Congressional Progressive Caucus webpage on the house.gov website has recently been removed and all trace of it has been removed from the WayBack Machine. They are like a bunch of cockroaches exposed to the light, scurring for cover. It is time to keep the pressure on them.
I downloaded the list of the Progressive Caucus from the house.gov website on 2-20-10.

The "CTTP" Crash The Tea Party agitators.
Print up information sheets from their website and forum to circulate to members of the media at any of your tea party events.
When you see an agitator trying to smear the movement with deliberately misspelled signs, violent or racist rhetoric, point out to the media that these Left Wing Extremists are on the record that this is how they will discredit the movement. Not by debate but by false smear.
they walked right through the tea, and why did they have mostly blacks walking through.
to get an reaction but the problem for them is that there was none so now they made the story up and with the help of the media it spreads their lies.
the media needs to be addressed in this country right now as it is not a fair and free media but a mouth piece for the white house and imagine if the GOP walked through the scruffy smelly layabout rats.
The media would be gong mad at the GOP for instigating trouble
the tea parties should sue the media outlets for slander and the use the money for the tea party and getting rid of their messiah.
seems we need to march to the media outlet HQ’s and demand they return to being a fair media instead of a mouth piece
On the Chris Plante (WMAL) show today, there was a caller, a young man who sounded quite mature for his age. He said that he forms up a small film crew that attempts to document media attendance at our protests from the first arrival of the news trucks. He’s looking for bias in how and where interviews are conducted.
For example, he said it’s common for the media to interview at the fringes of the event, with a camera angle that gives the impression of poor attendance. He aims to counteract this bias by filming their interview from an angle that includes the main body of the protest. He also said he’s audio recording, looking for disparaging remarks by the media people.
I have no way of verifying his claims, but I applaud the idea of putting video and audio scrutiny on our enemies.
That’s a wonderful idea. Put the media whores under the same microscope they put everyone else.
We'll find out their real names and real political affiliations quick enough.
The SEIU thugs will be the easiest to identify, with their apelike elongated arms and protruding squishy foreheads.
The racist AP writer.
Who decides on these crazy districts? STATES.
So if We The People want the districts to be FAIR to the Voters, why do we not petition our States to draw up districts that are cohesive and not meandering all over the place?

“after the time in question”
if they refer to the video, it can’t be after the fact because the politicians who are complaining are seen walking along in the video.
remember the KKK was a Democratic Party entity formed after the war to protest Abraham Lincoln's (Republican)reconstruction programs.
The paramilitary, terrorist wing, as it were.
And I don’t understand why Democrats compound the damage by calling themselves “progressives,” given the ties between that movement, eugenics, and the Klan.
Maybe they’re trying to tell us something about their racial views after all.
