Not the Way to Protest
Posted by Anthony on March 21, 2010
In Washington DC today, Tea Part protests took the spotlight. Unfortunately, the media decided to cover the bad seeds.
Civil rights icon and veteran Rep. John Lewis, D-Georgia, said anti-health care bill protesters Saturday repeatedly yelled the “N” word at him as he left a heath care meeting and walked to the Capitol.
A CNN producer overheard the word “faggot” yelled at Frank several times in the lobby of the Longworth building. Frank said he heard someone yell “homo” at him.
“I’m disappointed,” Frank said. “There’s an unwillingness to be civil.”
These morons and trolls in no way represent the majority of citizens who participate in Tea Party protests. This will fuel nutroots and far lefties to spout about how racist and bigoted the entire Tea Party movement and its members are.
However, with a big vote tomorrow in Congress, I’m not sure this won’t get much more than a brief mention on talk shows tomorrow. Tomorrow should be quite interesting.
