WASHINGTON Demonstrators outside the U.S. Capitol , angry over the proposed health care bill, shouted "nigger" Saturday at U.S. Rep. John Lewis , a Georgia congressman and civil rights icon who was nearly beaten to death during an Alabama march in the 1960s.

With such a corrupt media how can we ever win?
Lewis is a liar.
I know this has already been posted from other sources....but this is what’s filtering into the MSM headlines about the protest.
NOT fact. Unless “KILL THE BILL” is ‘hate speech’ now.
Maybe they thought they were at a Wal-Mart...
I haven’t heard Lewis make that claim yet.
If it is Democrat, it is a liar.
Without video, this is toothless. We know this the hard way--nothing is real without the video. Now we have camcorders in our cell phones. And if this really happened, we'd have a hundred youtubes posted already.
There is a video. But all that can be heard is “Kill the bill! Kill the bill!”
Me thinks the Libs have made this accusation up. Accusing other people of racism is cowardly when it isn’t true.
The media has forgotten their favorite word - allegedly.
They do that sort of thing.
Wow. When was the last time you read a story where the entire word was spelled out rather than the delicate “racial epithet” or “the ‘n’ word?” The are REALLY going after this one.
Can one write comments on the article page?
Congressmen hear what they want, and say what they want. As to their veracity.....they’re politicians.
It’s not like they are under oath, and even if they were....
McClatchy, CNN, and AP so far. The usual liars. MSNBC at least had the caution to qualify it with “Dems report.”
Baloney. Who thinks like that? The phrase was never uttered.
Unless you have video/Audio and an interview to see who this person is and what their true affiliation is.
I think so too, because I just don't hear what he alleges.
It didn’t happen. Kristinn posted video. And these guys walked through the crowd instead of using the tunnel. It was a setup.
#1 - it is ***NOT*** illegal to use racial slurs. If it was, BET would be in serious trouble.
#2 - funny how they hear these things but can’t hear “NO TO HEALTHCARE”
