These tea baggers are unfit to be in this country, they spit on people( in news week) they call people racial slurs (as in STL.com ). It's too bad that Fox2 didn't put these stories here.

KKK forever.

Every Two Years, Emanuel Cleaver Pulls The Racist Card

When you only have one card, you have to play it over and over, and Emanuel Cleaver has just one card. His political opponents are all racist, and he is always the sad target.

The congressman's office sent out a statement saying someone was arrested, but no pictures or arrests have been made public. The spitting, if there was an individual, is newsworthy because it was supposed to be a crowd of racist protestors, but without the chant, the outrage wouldn't be so great.

Cleaver is a liar who wanted national coverage. I stand by that statement until video or arrest reports are made public that side with any portion of his story other than walking through a crowd.

The press will not touch this. They won't ask the question of who was arrested, where the video is, and whether Cleaver can be trusted.

The story backs up all their prejudices, even when it's not true.

With all the news media recording all that was going on don't you find it strange that no one caught any thing on tape?

ABC showed the video over the weekend. It happened. The person's name wasn't released because Cleaver declined to press charges. Someone spit on him and called him "n----r". Police made the arrest, and released the person when Cleaver said he would not press charges. That's how it was.

Because ONE person acts like an idiot, you label the whole group? That is as ridiculous as someone saying all black people are lazy because you see one black person who is. Idiots.

My mistake...he was NOT arrested because Cleaver said he would not press charges. Had he insisted on charges, the offender would have been arrested.

ABC had the video. They showed the video. Repeatedly. Cleaver was spit on, called "n----r". There was no arrest. It showed him telling the cop he would not press charges. You need to watch something other than Fox. Prove it didn't happen, Cooter.

Either FOX news missed the shot, or edited it out. At least one other network (ABC) caught the moment...probably others. Most of these people don't pay attention to any other source. Afraid they might see something that conflicts with their false impressions.

Absolute Proof Cleaver Wasn't Spat On

Video proof at 1:25. Cleaver is being shouted at by a man who is cupping his hands to shout above the noise.

It's not spitting, despite what some radio station caller claims. It's an unfortunate affect of yelling. Note the Capitol police did nothing. They didn't arrest the guy, they didn't handcuff him.

Cleaver said he was spat upon, but didn't press charges. Now we see why.

Can we finally admit that the whole thing was made up? Now that full video shows there was no chanting of the n-word, no deliberate spitting, and to be honest, loud but very tame behavior from the protesters.

Can't tell whether he was spitting from that angle or not. The recoil Cleaver made sure looked like he was being hit. Maybe it was a spitter on the grassy knoll.
