Posted on 07/19/2010 7:18:15 AM PDT by PJ-Comix
Just how much of a liberal cocoon does New York Times political reporter Matt Bai live in? Apparently a mighty thick one judging by the fact that he thought he could repeat a provably false lie about an supposed example of Tea Party racism in his most recent article. Almost everybody with even a little bit of political savvy can already guess what example I am referring to but let us allow Bai to repeat the false charge:
The question of racism in the amorphous Tea Party movement is, of course, a serious one, since so much of the Republican Party seems to be in the thrall of its activists. There have been scattered reports around the country of racially charged rhetoric within the movement, most notably just before the vote on the new health care law last March, when Representative John Lewis, Democrat of Georgia, the legendary civil rights leader, was showered with hateful epithets outside the Capitol.

There is one constant about commie/fascist/socialist/progressive/Dums. THEY WILL NEVER ALLOW FACTS TO GET IN THE WAY OF PROPAGANDA.
My concern is that recently both Tea Partyists and AlQuaida have been lumped into the same “racist” category by our alledged POTUS and his wife. What kind of conclusion are they hoping the ignorant masses will make of the true Patriot movement?
This is a story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody. There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about this, because it was Everybody's job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn't do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.
Or are you waiting for Somebody Else to do what Everybody should?
They just call us “raaaacist” ‘cause we’re white.
All the same, there’s nothing more pathetic and degraded than a white boy trying to play the race card.
Tea Partiers. all of them. black white and brown
Gee, I wonder why?
No amount of reasoning will get thru to them you are wasting your time.
Anything from the NYSlimes is guaranteed to be commie crap.
When the tough get going, the NYTimes goes commie.
Last friday the cnn host and one of the guests referred to the Lewis allegations. When a guest brought up the supposed spitting and ‘n’ calling allegation, no one pointed out the lack of evidence in the accusations, in fact, the host himself went on to discuss the allegations as if they were fact.
I don’t normally watch cnn, but have had to watch it for news in the past few days since there is no Foxnews where I’m at. I am being reminded every time I tune in to cnn why I stopped watching them completely.
