Ken Burns is lying. At not point EVER have I heard anything remotely racist at a tea party event. Ken Burns is an assh0le, and a relic. His 15 minutes ended years ago. He had one great work and has lived off that reputation since. I am done with anything he is involved with.

Hey Ken:

1.) Prove the increase of the use of the word is due to the TEA party and not because of the rap culture

2.) Get an adult haircut

Everybody knows that Ken Burns is a pedophile. This is common knowledge in NYC, where he is a frequenter of underage bondage clubs. He even imports young boys from Cambodia to serve as his sex slaves. It’s all true, I swear.

""Substantiate your charge, a**hole"

Unfortunately, in the liberal world, especially at PBS, proof is unnecessary. A charge is adequate proof for la-la liberals.

The filmmaker, who works primarily on projects for PBS, says there wouldn't be a birther movement with a President Joe Biden in the White House.

That's very true.Nor would there be a "birther" movement if Condelezza Rice were in the White House.Are you startin' to detect a pattern here,Comrade Burns?

And BTW,Comrade Burns....now that you've played "the race card" here,tell us which of Osama Obama's policies would we be supporting if he was *entirely* white?

crickets

He must be seeking a large grant for another documentary. To continue on the gravy train he must periodically demonstrate his fealty to orthodox thinking publicly.

Seriously, the Tea Party was virtually invisible during the 2012 election or at least it maintained a very low profile. Yet since the election the vitriol against the Tea Party has once again increased in the media. Harry Reid has made some negative Tea Party comments in recent days. Many of the media pundits have commented on the need for the GOP to purge the Tea Party. Now Ken Burns is playing the race card and trying to tar the Tea Party as racist when anyone who knows about the Tea Party knows it isn’t about race. Can it be Obama and the Democrats fear a resurgent Tea Party?

oh, he heard it from a friend who heard it

and he heard that word “a lot” over the past 4 years- maybe he’s watching BET shows and listening to hiphop and rap?

otherwise I wonder who he’s hanging our with?

Everytime the media uses the “n”-word while reporting about the Tea Party, it counts towards the Tea Party’s owning the word... If the Tea Party didn’t exist, the media would be forced to use the “n”-word to hang around someone else’s neck and make them own it.

You know, I saw that exact claim, that Ken Burns is a pedophile, written on the internet. My guess is that it is true.

Yup. USDA Grade ‘A’ lieing sumbitch. Race has never been an issue with any Tea Party event. My wife attended a Tea Party gathering where an African American Baptist minister conducted the commencement prayer service.

I have heard an increase in the use of the "n-word". It wasn't from TEA Party folks, though, it was from twenty somethings who have had a bellyfull of the race card and being told how racist they are.

Fact of nature: You tell the average teenager or twenty-something they are something they are not often enough, they decide if they are getting the blame anyway they might as well do it.

Of course, they've heard the word fairly often in what passes for music in some circles, and some figure they have an equal right to use a word a particular demographic conspicuously uses to identify itself.

Needless to say, the current administration has set race relations back by decades, if the tolerance levels aren't the worst they have ever been.

The majority of the TEA Party folks I know are a little older demographic and a little more civil.

No,that's not it...but you're close.Several friends have told me that they've been told that Comrade Burns contracted syphilis many years ago in a San Francisco bath house and never sought treatment.Left untreated that will *really* scramble your brain cells.

Love it.
That’s what Ann Coulter does when she’s attacked as racist with no proof. I recently saw her accuse a co-guest of child pornography, without a bit of irony in her voice. The guy started stuttering.

I think it was G. Gordon Liddy who liked to say on his radio show, “Any gratuitous assertion may be equally gratuitously refuted.”

I am searching for a lawyer who will sue any and all LIBs , for slander. Accusing me of being racist is a personal attack on me. A good round number to sue for would be $1 Trillion plus legal fees. That’s $500 billion after taxes. I will donate all except $100 million to start a SECOND political party.

Was there a conservsative or a faux Republican on the show at the same time to refute this? This is a part of the the problem - these libs say this crap and whatever Republican is sitting next to him doesnt challenge it at all. You know David Gregory is gonna sit there and nod his head in agreement so who is standing up for us? If the Pub’s want any more of my money or support - I need to see them effectively challenge this crap every time it happens in front of a TV camera.

A REAL friend with a REAL allegation to make would have a REAL NAME and would also be REAL PROUD of both his/her NAME and his/her accomplishment in exposing Tea Party attendees!!

C’mon, Ken .... just HOW credible is the statement you made?? I'd think that with a bona fide allegation like that, a guy like YOU would be chaffing at the bit to provide names, dates... etc.

You are a liar!

And yes.... your barber ought to be taken out and shot against the nearest wall!

I have only been to three Tea Party events but have never heard the N-word used. To be honest, I can’t think of the last time I heard a white person use it; it seems to be exclusively a black thing.

Ken Burns is clearly MOST definitely a pedophile. I know it for a fact, as I’ve seen it in one reply and clearly corroborated in another.

“...adding Obama’s detractors routinely call the president “un-American,” the “other” and a Muslim.”

Now I know he’s making it up. “The other” is left-speak.

Burns then turned his attention to the Tea Party, saying a friend who attended a Tea Party event told him "almost every one she met there invoked the 'n-word'" about the president, he recalls.

"Nancy"?

Just another round of Liberal BS> The only one I heard calling Obama a muslim was Madonna. It's bad enough we have Burns saying this BS, but guys like David Gregory and Brian Williams will believe this stuff. Any MSM guy repeats this nonsense. Didn't some guy just get fired from one of the nets, only to go to Yahoo News with this same mindset?

This is really damaging stuff. Burns is a famous guy with alot of accomplishments and credibility. He is known for doing good work, people like him and he’s not known as a bomb thrower. The left will keep repeating this BS and 90% of the brain dead morons will beleive it, especially since it fits with the Tea party racist crap the left has been pushing for years. The left loves to disqualify our candidates by smearing them before they even get to the primaries. They want tea party to become synonomous with racist. The marginalization of the Tea Party is running at full speed.
