Indiana Congressman André Carson was the target of racial slurs directed at him by Tea Party protestors on Capitol Hill. Or was he?
It's a controversy that started more than three weeks ago when Carson and other members of Congress were on the way to the Capitol to vote on the health care reform bill. Congressman Carson was walking with Congressman John Lewis of Georgia, another African American Democrat, when they encountered protesters.
Carson told reporters that he heard the N-word used numerous times even though the word is not audible in a short video posted on Youtube .
"It happened," said Carson chief of staff Justin Ohlemiller. "I think the reason he brought it to light is the fact that we need to use this incident and others to raise our civil discourse."
Three weeks and counting, and there is still no tape of the incident. Not one.
Doesn't this strike people as odd?
Oh, I know.....I believe they were trying to goad the Tea party members into it. I believe they WANTED to hear the words. I said as much about this, awhile back.
No, the only reason they do this is because they have no answer to valid criticism. The critiques against this government are rendered by people who have different opinions than those in power, nothing else.Those who are driving the train do not cope well with dissent. So they try doing the only thing they can and that is control the narrative by changing the subject.
They cannot refute the intellectual points the Tea Party makes in the free exchange of ideas. They see no value in debating the issues on their merits. So, they seek to destroy those who are in opposition with them. They try to discredit the messengers by any means possible, even if it means uttering lies and deceptions to divert attention away from their inability to hold an intelligent dialogue.
The government spends too much money. That's racism.
The health care bill does not address the real problems the healthcare system has. That's racism.
Let's kill the bill and start over again. Again, racism.
I can do this all day long, the outcome is the same. Whatever point or counter point I make with this government, I get equated to being a racist.
And that isn't all.
One or two idiots in a crowd, spouting off or displaying signs with inappropriate or offensive comments, just means that the entire multimillion who think smaller government is smarter government, are racists too.
Or are they?
The Tea Party movement is a "loose affiliation of racists, homophobes and morons" that must be stopped "by any non-violent means necessary," according to the Web site "Crash The Tea Party."
The group's founder, Jason Levin, told the Associated Press that it has 65 leaders in cities around the country who are seeking to orchestrate infiltration of this week's Tea Party protests.
"Do I think every member of the Tea Party is a homophobe, racist or a moron? No, absolutely not," he said. "Do I think most of them are homophobes, racists or morons? Absolutely."
There you have it. Only it's not just beginning, it's been going on for awhile now and too many people are not able to comprehend it.
Don't be surprised to find out that someone tries to blame this on the "Tea Party racists". It just might be said that this was an inside job to cover for the millions of "racists", who are behind this movement.
But I digress.
If this was just a group of people who were not happy with a black President, why would such an underhanded game need to be played? Why would they feel the need to counter the influence of those who are not on board with political espionage?
The answer is not blowing in the wind. It's anchored front and center for all to see. But you have to look at it.
If we look at it with objectivity, we will see that race-baiting is no different than racism. So each and every time Andre Carson, John Lewis, or any other radical agent makes baseless accusations like this, it is a wanton and willful act of bigotry and prejudice. Every time a race baiting subversive infiltrates a gathering of peace loving people who just want their government to listen, it is an act of racism.
As Tea party protests take place tomorrow, my advice is to watch out for these bozos. And if they start uttering racist remarks or are found to be carrying offensive signs, make them leave. If they won't, film it and put it on You Tube for all to see.
