Showing their racism, Tea party protesters call congressmen n*gger

There are 4166 comments on the www.kansascity.com story from Mar 20, 2010, titled Showing their racism, Tea party protesters call congressmen n*gger. In it, www.kansascity.com reports that:

Demonstrators outside the U.S. Capitol, angry over the proposed health-care reform 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.

"I heard people saying things today I've not heard since March 15th, 1960, when I was marching to try and get off the back of the bus," Clyburn said. "This is incredible, shocking to me."

He added, "A lot of us have said for a long time that none of this is about health care at all. It's about extending a basic fundamental right to people who are less powerful."

Two Most Likly Explanations

1) The democrats are lying---there are camara's and press and video phones and security everywhere;and where is the evidence???

2) If there were slurs it probably came from democratic plants as that is a common tactic.

Woof, I have a white friend that went to the office of a politician in Oakland to lodge a complaint. He found himself in a crowd of Obamacare supporters. He yelled his opposition, and was shouted down as a "honky". So, maybe there are crazy's in every crowd, racists on both sides or more likely planted agitators sent by the press.

A lot of people may take out their anger on the blacks in our government, mostly because there seems to be corruption, irresponsibility, and incompetance going on everywhere, and being a minority they may simply be more visible than crooked whites. However, all should refrain from name calling and particularly use of the N word which has been deemed offensve. However, any corrupt office holder in government should not be offended by disrespect from the public. They deserve it. I am for voting out all corrupt officials regardless of race.

SOURCE: They're going to vote for the 'fix it' bill, before voting on Senate-passed bill. They're going to vote against it, before voting for it...

Whoa! Obama actuary CAN'T analyze bill in time...THE TRUE NUMBERS TO THE BILL CAN NOT BE SCORED, PREVIOUS NUMBERS INCOMPLETE. MORE LIES.

"The protesters also shouted obscenities at other members of the Congressional Black Caucus, lawmakers said."

Lawmakers said?

Lib Democrats said?

Is there no audio or video evidence to back up the claim?

If not there is no way to know if it really happened or not.

And if it did happen who may have said it.

They could have been liberal plants who were there to discredit the Tea Party movement.

BTW: If shouting racial insults invalidates the arguements of the other side then liberals need to give it up and go home since I have often been call a "honkey" or a "redneck" when lefties disagree with my opinions.

He should count himself lucky that if the story is true that it was only words and not something else. It`s common knowledge to those with a brain who can read a paper, that John Lewis like Jesse Jackson is a racist, they both hate white people and are also showing signs of hate towards Latino`s who are increasing their political clout.

I kind of believe like Bottlecap that it was a plant by the Demoncrats in front of the media to make the Tea Party look bad. This is the kind of crap they`d do. This is not the Democratic party of years past. The socialist, progressives, Marxist, Cummunist and Maoist have taken it over. The proof is that the Independants in recent years are a larger political force than the 2 parties combined, with the Democrats loosing more registered members than the Republicans.

Your stupid "woof" thing is getting old. Planted by the press, that would be truly funny if it weren't so delusional.

The tea baggers don't need any help discrediting themselves, they are a racist, homophobic anti-American joke and nothing more.

Just like foreign leaders/dictators often do the US politicians want people to be preoccupied with fighting each other while they do everything they want.

I think a lot of narrow minded racist whites are just jealous of persident abama's charceter and intelligence and the great job he is doing for the american people just because he is black.

And the guy is been on the job for just one year and they attacking him on those missleading stupid tea parties and all the conservitive talk shows from all sides like hounds.

I am an african canadian,and my sugestion is that african americans and their supporters and all democrats hold a million men and women march in washington to show thier support for the first african american president.

Once again we are seeing the desperate right-wing fools cry out in pain as the country moves further away from their racist and bigoted behavior.

I just love to watch these unpatriotic tea-bagging right-wing nuts suffer beyond belief as President Obama continues to push his agenda and policies.

Lets find out if it is indeed a person who
---doesn't like Blacks
-----someone who doesn't like this man and acted inappropriately
or
----A democrat plant who was specifically planted to cause havoc and try to make the Teaparty look like racists as the democrats are scared to death of them and the power behind them and the message they are bringing

and as there is alot of anger,none of the above would surprise me

Without having been there I can only rely on the opinions presented to me by the dissenting members I have personally met. And I can't believe 15 times was all it was shouted.

I looked at the webpage you posted and there is still no evidence there. I do not agree with the sentiment of the placard carrier, but that has nothing to do with the spitinging or slander allegations.

A man was arrested by Capital police??? OK, there is a lead to be persued. But why not press charges??? Filing a false police report is a crime and I'm sure the Congressman knows it.

However, like I said, the press needs to interview the Capatal Police and get this out in the open.

"Black"??? I hate to break this to you but Barack is a stone-cold tommy for the GLOBALIST FASCIST POWER STRUCTURE.

Of course, the Bushes have been with the GLOBALISTS since the inception of the Federal Reserve in 1913, so I don't like neo-cons either.

I do respect Obama though as his intelligence is very high and he articulates the GLOBALISTIC agenda well.

Not just the shouting, but the cheering after the shouts.
