BREAKING!! Video of "Racial Slurs" at Tea Party shows Big Media lie

Ugly yes; but no racial remarks

From Eric Dondero:

Far Left websites such as Huffington Post and Firedog Lake reported with glee late yesterday, on alleged "racial slurs" hurled at black members of Congress as they passed a gauntlet of Tea Party protesters, while entering the Capitol. Big media have picked up on the story this morning, from ABC News, to the NY Times, to the Washington Post.

This is how MSNBC reported on the story "Protest gets Ugly, Racist":

From NBC's Luke Russert
The Tea Party protests got ugly today.

African-American Congressman John Lewis (D-GA), a protege of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who helped organize the March on Washington, went to the House floor today to tell Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-SC) that a Tea Party protester called him a "n-----."
But the video tells a different story. "Ugly," yes. But absolutely no racial ephitats can be heard and further no evidence on the video of anyone being spat upon.

HotAirPundit (not, has a second video of Cong. John Lewis leaving the Capitol. Once again, absolutely no racial slurs are heard. HA Pundit asks:

Is it possible that John Lewis didn't hear any racial slurs, but 'Deemed' it to be so when he talked to Reporters?
Major hat tip to Barry Goldwater-ian blog BasilsBlog for uncovering the video.

I've actually encountered leftists who say, in honesty, that these protests mean we should be worried about Nazism.

The right might have its share of hyperbole, but the left, as usual, goes way over the top.

i'm not sure how you can tell what was or wasn't said by the entire crowd off this video. i see no proof or validation either way. all i heard was yelling, nothing recognizable, and then the knucklehead with the camera yelling was all that could be heard. this is pretty lame "evidence" of anything other than people yelling things that can't be made out in one small section of a fairly large crowd.
