It’s obvious that Leftists will do almost anything to keep the Tea Party from getting their messge to the masses. So they created a plan to mute the entire movement. Character assassination with a capital R. Raaaaacists!!
What followed was a ridiculous spectacle of Leftists knocking over rocks and shaking bushes in search of anything they can use to slime the Tea Party. And what they couldn’t find, they made up. I wrote about these activities a couple months ago:
Seriously, one has to wonder how long the left can hide their pervasive bigotry of designating an ethnic group unqualified for the American dream and therefore dependent on the handouts of others – not to mention the haughty tendentiousness of scanning faces in crowds and judging every thought, statement, and motive according to the collective melanin level represented.
The problem was, even as they hurled their slime-balls, blatant examples of true racism kept spilling out from within their own ranks.
That was the root of the Shirley Sherrod mess. Her supposed racist speech to the NAACP never would have been relased if the Right hadn’t been goaded by the NAACP’s truly ugly and unprovoked racially-charged invective against the Tea Party movement. The half-cocked, poorly-considered firing was the White House’s hasty attempt to remove the mantle of hypocrisy from the NAACP so they could pull their collective foot out of their mouth and move on as quickly as possible.
It didn’t help that the fiasco took place after several other episodes of blatant racism from the Left. Among those were credible allegations of institutional racism at the Justice Department and a shocking endorsement of racial violence by a member of the New Black Panthers.
Then Think Progress got caught red-handed doing neurosurgery on slivered video of Tea Party Crashers, which was easily exposed when conservatives produced the uncut versions, revealing the painstaking editing used to conceal actual Tea Partiers surrounding, heckling, and hounding the sham “Tea Party Racists” out of the area.
But despite all those set-backs in their quest to distract the public from the issues, the Left still had one ace in the hole: A Tea Party demonstrator had called a black congressman the N word at the Capitol on the day that Healthcare Reform was passed.
Or did he?
Sorry guys. Negative. Even the New York Times agrees:
Correction: July 25, 2010
The Political Times column last Sunday, about a generational divide over racial attitudes, erroneously linked one example of a racially charged statement to the Tea Party movement. While Tea Party supporters have been connected to a number of such statements, there is no evidence that epithets reportedly directed in March at Representative John Lewis, Democrat of Georgia, outside the Capitol, came from Tea Party members.
I don’t know what good it will do. If they will ignore Andrew Breitbart’s unclaimed $100,000 reward for proof that the insult took place, I’m sure they will just ignore this, too.
