Alleged Incidents Magnified

It was only a matter of time. Allegedly, "a group" of protesters yelled racial and homosexual slurs at some Democratic congressmen and allegedly one committed the disgusting act of spitting. It is now mentioned, if not headlined in many if not most articles on the healthcare bill.

The story, whether true or not, is a gem to the propaganda of the left. The story will probably have a short shelf life. But it will not be analyzed based on the truth of the story but rather on the grounds of racist, homophobic behavior.

I don't know what happened but I surmise one of the following scenarios.

1. A small group of people did just what is being reported. This is unacceptable and not approved by any mainstream patriot group. Rather it is the action of a small unidentified and unaffiliated group whose only intent was to act with malice.

2. Among the tens of thousands of protesters, one or two people yelled racial or homosexual words while black and/or one openly active homosexual Democrat congressmen walked nearby. If true it is sad and unwarranted. but the actions of one or two have no bearing on the issue or the 99.9999999 percent of the protesters. These couple of people may have been standing with a large group of protesters. That doesn't mean that the "group", as is being reported had anything to do with it or even knew it was going to happen.

3. None of the accusations really happened. Since they cannot be proven to be false however, they are "safe lies" and they will flame a smoldering resentment that many media outlets will gladly blow out of proportion.

All three of the possibilities are negative and have nothing to do with the legislation at hand. I can believe any of them. But one paragraph from a Fox News online article was of interest.

"Kristie Greco, spokeswoman for Democratic Whip Jim Clyburn, said a protester spit on Rep. Emanuel Cleaver who is black and said police escorted the lawmakers into the Capitol. Cleaver's office said he would decline to press charges, but Sgt. Kimberly Schneider of the U.S. Capitol Police said in an e-mail later: "We did not make any arrests today."

This particular allegation, the arrest, was proven false. Don't expect to see that in headlines though.

Of greater importance is the warning to all of us who are clamoring for truth and justice. As is the case with some groups now, we must continually remind all who join us to avoid any actions that can negatively affect our progress by becoming fodder for leftist propaganda.

Later in the day.

I was wrong. The lie was not safe. Silly me, and in this age of technology too.


Note the black gentleman who walks past at the very end of the top video. He is apparently part of the Caucus and is carrying a Blackberry or the like. Maybe he was just reading his text and not recording. But if the allegations had been true, wouldn't it have been all over the media by now?

  1. Okay, i was wrong. It could be proved a lie. Silly me,and in this technological age too. On the first video. Note at the very end of the clip a black man in a suit passes by. He appeared to be connected to the Black Caucus. He's holding either a phone or Blackberry or something similar. My guess is it captured audio and video. If the allegations were true it would be all over the Internet by now.

    As someone once said, racism is the card pulled when all else fails.
