This article is about the Tea party movement I just took the LIBERTY of using photos from Various Moveon.org and anti-war protests, Guess it is OK to have a Bush Hitler but not an Obama Hitler. Or hanging Bush and burning a flag. How about the Bush sucking the lifeblood from lady Liberty… Oh that’s all right but don’t call barney Frank a faggot oh my …. we are still waiting for the video or audio of the event. To us, it is just another hate piece that didn’t really happen. IT’s all to keep the story going that Republicans and conservatives hate Black folks and don’t accept Gays in out ranks. Anyone ever heard of the Log Cabin republicans. Oh one more thing, Republicans ran more blacks in 2008 then any year in history. Oh I know they are just Uncle Toms.
Abusive, derogatory and even racist behavior directed at House Democrats by Tea Party protesters on Saturday left several lawmakers in shock.
Preceding the president’s speech to a gathering of House Democrats, thousands of protesters descended around the Capitol to protest the passage of health care reform. The gathering quickly turned into abusive heckling, as members of Congress passing through Longworth House office building were subjected to epithets and even mild physical abuse.
A staffer for Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.) told reporters that Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.) had been spat on by a protestor. Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.), a hero of the civil rights movement, was called a ‘ni–er.’ And Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) was called a “faggot,” as protestors shouted at him with deliberately lisp-y screams. Frank, approached in the halls after the president’s speech, shrugged off the incident.
But Clyburn was downright incredulous, saying he had not witnessed such treatment since he was leading civil rights protests in South Carolina in the 1960s.
“It was absolutely shocking to me,” Clyburn said, in response to a question from the Huffington Post. “Last Monday, this past Monday, I stayed home to meet on the campus of Claflin University where fifty years ago as of last Monday… I led the first demonstrations in South Carolina, the sit ins… And quite frankly I heard some things today I have not heard since that day. I heard people saying things that I have not heard since March 15, 1960 when I was marching to try and get off the back of the bus.”
