    I was not at this particular location but people were AIRING their opinion of the bill in the same way. Gee... I never thought booing and telling our congress to "kill the bill" was illegal and wrong? This sounds like a plant and another way to smear the TRUE AMERICANS that want to save this country and freedom. Like i said in another the post the mood was more "get down to business" but never like they are reporting. BTW, I saw 7-8 black people in my section.... are they racists?

    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.

    Though by their own count “thousands” of anti-ObamaCare protesters gathered outside the Capitol building on Saturday, ABC decided to smear the entire cause by stressing the despicable actions of a handful or even fewer as anchor David Muir announced in setting up the first story on Saturday’s World News: “Protesters against the plan gathered on the streets of the capital where late today we learned words shouted turned very ugly, reports of racial and homophobic slurs, one protester actually spitting on a Congressman.” Following the lead story on President Barack Obama’s pep talk to House Democrats, and before Jonathan Karl’s...

    A Democrat Congressman who says he was a few yards behind Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) as he was walking between Congressional buildings today when Lewis was allegedly called a n***** by Tea Party protesters says that it was actually a chorus of voices calling Lewis a n*****.Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo) is quoted by McClatchy Newspapers as saying he "distinctly heard" Lewis called a n*****:"It was a chorus," Cleaver said. "In a way, I feel sorry for those people who are doing this nasty stuff - they're being whipped up. I decided I wouldn't be angry with any of them."Politico has...

    “Rising tensions on Capitol Hill” is a cliche in cable news, but it may never have been apt than today. With the House of Representatives currently negotiating a controversial vote on a Senate bill that aims to reform health care, protesters have gathered to voice their opposition to the bill. CNN’s Capitol Hill reporter Dana Bash reports today of personally witnessing epithets being used towards John Lewis (D-GA) and Barney Frank (D-MA) by protesters that had been identified earlier as “Tea Party people.” VIDEO AT LINK

    CNN's Capitol Hill correspondent Dana Bash is reporting that Rep. John Lewis (D-GA), a black Congressman who is a Civil Rights era icon, was called a "n*****" by Tea Party protesters gathered on Capitol Hill today to rally against the Democrat's healthcare bill.Bash also reported Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) was called a slur related to his homosexuality by Tea Party protesters.No video so far of either incident.Bash did note that the most constant and resonant words of the Tea Party protesters were "Kill the bill!" And that that chant was inescapable on the Hill today.

  • Video: Donny Deutsch calls Marco Rubio a “coconut”;

    Such is my ignorance of this particular slur that I didn’t grasp the outrage when I first watched the clip. I took “coconut” to be some sort of archaic Three-Stooges-esque putdown, like “dimbulb” or “numbskull.” Turns out that the boss emeritus has been dealing with it for decades, just as black conservatives have had to deal with the “Oreo” nonsense. A review of the transcript at Newsbusters makes me think, yeah, that’s exactly how Deutsch intended it:

    Century-Old Slur Erased From Santa Monica Mountains Maps February 20, 2010 A century-old slur was erased Saturday as authorities ceremoniously renamed a Santa Monica Mountains peak to commemorate a black pioneer who established a homestead at its base in 1880. What had long been designated on "Negrohead Mountain" on official maps is now "Ballard Mountain" in honor of John Ballard, who worked as a blacksmith and firewood vendor from his 160 acres in the Seminole Springs area. About 25 of Ballard’s descendants were among a crowd of 90 who watched as a plaque bearing the settler’s name was unveiled near...

    The comedic ingenuity that is adorning the pages of The Washington Post these days is astonishing, but not exactly in a good way. Dana Milbank, one-half of the duo that sent panic throughout the newsroom at the Post last year after producing a video with his colleague Chris Cillizza that suggested President Barack Obama would serve a brew called "Mad Bitch Beer" to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton if she were to attend a White House-style beer summit, is still at it with the shtick. In his Feb. 19 "Washington Sketch" column, Milbank declared Marco Rubio, an opponent of Florida...

Scott Brown will be "a real a**hole" and "a regular Gandhi – if Gandhi took off his diaper and posed for Cosmo."

    Anybody inclined to laugh off the current Tea Bag Movement as just a passing fancy involving a few isolated kooks had better guess again. Analyze what was said at the group's recent convention where Sarah Palin regaled her audience along with the series of preceding rallies cheer led by Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and others and a disturbing trend surfaces. These Teabaggers hold some discomforting points in common with the Brownshirts of Germany's pre-Third Reich period. Many from the progressive movement in Germany during that period laughed off the appearance of "a funny looking little man with a mustache" along...

    ABC News ^ | Feb 3, 2010 | DEVIN DWYER
    White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel's verbal indiscretion -- referring to some liberal activists as "f**king retarded" -- has shined a spotlight on just how pervasive the R-word is in American conversation, and how offensive it can be for millions of Americans. ... But Kirsten Seckler, spokeswoman for the Special Olympics, told ABC News that people need to realize the word packs a punch even if it's not meant that way. The group is leading the charge to eliminate the term in casual conversation with its Spread the Word to End the Word campaign at www.r-word.org. "We aren't trying...

    Sarah Palin's campaign against the derogatory usage of the word "retard" collided with her campaign to maintain her popularity with conservatives today, with confusing results. A Palin spokeswoman seemed to back away from earlier criticism of conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh. Yesterday, when asked for comment on Limbaugh's use of the "r" word in a recent broadcast, Palin spokeswoman told Greg Sargent of the Washington Post, "Governor Palin believes crude and demeaning name-calling at the expense of others is disrespectful." Today, Stapleton claims the statement was meant generally and she was not specifically referring to Limbaugh. Still, she declined to...

    Sarah Palin, the former Governor of Alaska, Republican mega-star and Fox News contributor, was quick to fire back at Washington Post blog, The Plum Line, for a report that Palin is at war with conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh. Sarah Palin spokesperson Meg Stapleton told Fox, "The Washington Post is trying hard to take the pressure off the White House by creating a side controversy, but it is missing the point: as the Governor has said, it doesn't matter who says the "r" word: it should no longer be part of our lexicon." Limbaugh used the "r" word...

    Former GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin on Monday called for President Obama to fire his chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, because of an offensive comment he reportedly made. At an August strategy session of liberal groups and White House aides, the Wall Street Journal recently reported, Emanuel told liberals they were "F-ing retarded" for planning to air attack ads against conservative Democrats opposed to health care reform. Palin, whose youngest child has Down Syndrome, said in a Facebook note that "our president is doing himself a disservice by seeming to condone Rahm's recent sick and offensive tactic." "I would...

    Grassroots conservatives are jumping for joy at the prospect of a challenge to Senator McCain in the 2010 Arizona Republican primary. Leading this charge is controversial talk-show host and former Congressman, JD Hayworth. Although Hayworth is on the correct side of most economic and security issues facing America in 2010, the roots of his ideological views are disturbing, even to the most conservative and libertarian activist. Hayworth is one of America’s most vocal supporters of the ‘Americanization’ doctrine. This doctrine goes beyond the policies of English only and immigrant assimilation into the American culture. The re-birth of this movement in...
