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 RussertBut 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.
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-----."
HotAirPundit (not HotAir.com), 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.
