Racism claims by Congressmen untrue?

Is this report of racism by the Tea Party true? You tell me. In the above video you see members of the Congressional Black Caucus crossing through the Tea Party crowd. I have watched this several times and have not seen any of the following:

1. Racial slurs being uttered toward the men.
2. Sexual slurs being uttered.
3. Anyone spitting at the Congressmen.

It seems strange in that in the Youtube era that we would not have a single video clip supporting the claims leveled toward the Tea Party in Washington DC.

Considering that most of the crowd disdains such behavior, it could also be said that we would have at least one person who saw or heard the actions of one or two “nuts” in the crowd doing something as atrocious as racial mistreatment or spitting. It just hasn’t happened.

Yet it seems that every media outlet is reporting this account of the story by Congressman Andre Carlson:

“It just happened on the way to votes. Coming out of [Cannon Building]…John Lewis’ chief of staff came with us. It was just the three of us walking down the steps. ‘Kill the bill, Kill the bill…n-word,’ fifteen times,” he said. “Capitol Police finally became aware and began protecting us.” The video above was taken as Reps. Lewis and Carson emerged from Cannon today towards a crowd of protesters, and racial epithets from the crowd appear to be absent from the scene captured.

So where is the proof of this? Or is it yet again a Saul Alinsky tactic? I am leaning toward believing it is just a tactic, and one that is very common by the Left.

The lesson to learn from this is that we must be on guard against the Leftist media’s tactics. They will demonize those they disagree with. And it might be in ways you might not expect. They might simply take a photo or short video clip of a speaker at a Tea Party dressed in “dated garb” of the era of the founding fathers, simply trying to make them look like an idiot. They will not let you hear what they have to say, they will simply demonize–it’s what they do best.

Realize that it took little more than a joke by Sarah Palin about seeing Russia from her “back window” to define her as stupid. One would think that people would be smart enought to know a joke when they hear it, right? But they used it effectively.

This is why we must be beyond reproach.

    Hey DPR,
    This is typical of the media – they close their eyes to anything that disproves their lunatic views. The combination of impartial and journalist these days is a real joke. Papa O not only never had any business running but should have been mired in his own mud two months in to the campaign – that he wasn’t tells me there is no honest journalist living in America anymore. Since Congress I believe has the lowest approval rating in American history (11% from the last poll I saw)I’m thinking that the electorate at large will likely vote in their dogs before re-electing these clowns again. God willing.

    Journalism as we knew it is dead, and let it die. Until we have trusted and relatively unbiased media sources, they are not worthy of our attention.

    I hope you are right and we eject the bums in November, and then in 2012;)
