How time flies - Schadenfreude and video

Remember this story from yesterday: I suppose that in every crowd of people there will be the occasional asshat but... I was really pissed at the people that did this but I also wondered if it might not be astroturfing from the Democrats. Turns out it was neither -- fortunately, someone was videotaping the whole sequence without the knowledge of Congressman John Lewis and it seems that Mr. Lewis is not a N***er but he is very much a Liar. See for yourself:
From Gateway Pundit:
Media Lying About Racist Attacks on Black Reps By Tea Party Protesters… VIDEO PROOF
It’s come to this…

The state-run media is now pushing their anti-tea party propaganda from sources at the anti-military , Jew-hating , conservative-hating , Huffington Post. And, they’re reporting this propaganda without a single piece of evidence.

On Saturday the media reported without a shred of evidence that tea party protesters were shouting obscenities and “n***er” at black Representatives on Capitol Hill. The representatives said it happened as they walked from the Longworth office building to the Rayburn office building.
Fscking people will say anything to get their agenda across. And this is not the first time Mr. Lewis has pulled something out of his ass for political gain. From his WikiPedia entry:
In October 2008, Lewis generated significant controversy by issuing a statement criticising the campaign of John McCain and Sarah Palin and comparing their actions to those of certain segregationists, specifically George Wallace, during the American Civil Rights Movement, stating that "What I am seeing reminds me too much of another destructive period in American history. Sen. McCain and Gov. [Sarah] Palin are sowing the seeds of hatred and division, and there is no need for this hostility in our political discourse."
Always classy John... Posted by DaveH at March 21, 2010 9:37 PM | TrackBack
