Did Black Representative Lie About Racial Slurs?

The Dana Show posts video of John Lewis (D-GA) through a crowd of Tea Party protesters yesterday, and the audio suggests that nothing remotely like a racial slur was hurled at him.

They video is only 22 seconds long, but in our camera-saturated society, other videos will pop up today of Lewis, Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC), and Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO) going through the crowd as well.

I'm sure that if recordings prove that no slurs were directed at them, Lewis, Clyburn, and Cleaver will contritely apologize for slandering the protesters.

Yeah, right.

Wasn't it just the other day that Obama and the Dems were whining that people were focusing on the process and everything else other than the actual legislation? Yet, here they are making shat up (again) in order to not focus on the bill themselves.

Several things are wrong with this picture. Why is the guy walking through an angry opposition crowd. It is much easier to get to the capital underground. Little known to most people, there is an extensive network of transportation under the streets. A congressman can leave his office, take an elevator to the basement, board an open air subway and go directly to the voting floor. I know because I rode all over the place with my family by just acting like I was someone and explored ever corner of the underground.

I feel that black are doing themselves a bad turn here. This is the first black president and what does he do, he tries to socialize the country. For those who grew up in the 50's it makes seems to vendicate the concerns of our grandparents. Then you take blacks going around reminding us constantly about there race. I know few Asians, Orientals, or Hispanics that do the same. Maybe blacks should start living in a color blind society like the rest of us and get over the past. We can all point a difficulties that our forefathers had at one time or another. If you dewell on it you will not move forward.

Fox cable news is reporting this as a fact, the reps were called the "n" word, one of them was spat upon and all needed the help of police to get away from the hatefilled conservative mob, Barney Frank also had some allegations but I never listen to him.

That video tells a different tale, I hope more vids are found so the truth will be seen.

I have thought about this and can't see why would should treat these politicians as anything but trash. Why are we so worried about being polite to them? Time to get mean.

If the shoe fits... and in this case it does.

From what I have read, one of the mistakes that the Jews made in the 30's was to be polite and try and get along. Lets not make the same mistake.

I think blacks show more racism to whites than the other way around.

I just found a site called Washington Monthly. This site is definitely anti-white and anti-South. What is the deal?

I was at the driveway when Rep. Cummings and group came out of the Capital and walked to the offices. They were booed and gotten shouts of "Kill the Bill!" like you saw in the video, but no slurs. Racism charges is now the last resort of the scoundrel.

They heard what they wanted to hear. Democrats have no ideas, no morals and no standards. They have only the discredited race and gender preferences and bribery to gain votes.

The media acts like a propaganda organ of the Democratic Party and will report the fantasies of Democratic politicians as fact. But the media spent every bit of credibility they ever had to push Obama over the top. No one believes them anymore, and rightfully so.

The Democrats and the media will always hear what they want to hear. The rest of us listen.
