There were so many video cameras at the Tea Party in DC against Health Care Reform that I don't know how the Black Caucus thought it would get away with claiming that the Tea Partiers were yelling the "N word" at them. Below is video of them coming out of their offices when the incident allegedly occurred. Other than boos and shouts of "Kill the Bill" the only other shout that can be heard is "Liars and Crooks".
But according to those in the Black Caucus it wasn't just a lone person that shouted it, it was a chorus.
Lewis said he was leaving the Cannon office building across from the Capitol when protesters shouted "Kill the bill, kill the bill," Lewis said.
"I said 'I'm for the bill, I support the bill, I'm voting for the bill'," Lewis said.
A colleague who was accompanying Lewis said people in the crowd responded by saying "Kill the bill, then the n-word."
"It surprised me that people are so mean and we can't engage in a civil dialogue and debate," Lewis said.
Rep. Emanuel Cleaver , D- Mo. , said he was a few yards behind Lewis and distinctly heard "nigger."
"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."
An outright lie! See the video below.
Now being a bunch of race panderers for a living, I can imagine that they got it in their head that someone yelled a racial epitaph, but the reality is that no one did. They just wanted it to be true and then spread it all over the news.
This is just another way for them to cause some sort of distraction news and slander their opponents and it's getting old. Just another act proving that race based caucuses who make their livelihood off of falsely claiming racism in this country need to be outlawed. Caucuses should only be allowed for issues, such as for education or immigration or health care. The fact that race based caucuses are still allowed shows that racism is alive and well in this country, but it is only coming from these divisive people who should be thrown out of office for being "race-hustlers".
I wonder how many times the Hispanic Caucus will claim that those who want to enforce immigration laws are simply racist as they march in Washington for amnesty tomorrow. Should we make a drinking game?
And the irony is that the Black Caucus and Hisapnic Caucus fail to realize that they are calling others racist when their group/caucus is standing up for those of only one race.
