Pelosi: Spitting on Members of Congress

post #1 of 72
Thread Starter 
House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco on ABC’s “This Week,” essentially called Cantor a hypocrite for criticizing the Wall Street protesters while embracing the “tea party” movement.

“I didn’t hear him say anything when the tea party was out demonstrating, actually spitting on members of Congress right here in the Capitol, and he and his colleagues were putting signs in the windows encouraging them,’ Pelosi said.

Pelosi said she supported the movement’s “message.”


Spitting on member's of Congress? Hadn't heard this before. Is she referring to the phantom "****** comments" that she allegedly overheard during her 'march' through a Tea Party protest? While she is somewhat out of the spotlight, this luminary of the modern Democrat party never disappoints for sheer lunacy. kooky.gif

One question: Has this group settled on any one message? Last I heard it was pay my student loans.......

You can always find the truth by listening to Nancy Pelosi. Just take what she said, and the exact opposite is the truth. It works every time.

Good Lord, what has happened to the Democrats? The NYC mobs are being cheered by the DNC?

I'd love to see Nancy Pelosi go to the protests.


"do you know who I am? I'm the former Speaker of the House"

"who are you? Speaker of the House? What's that? We don't have labels here. No one is above anyone."

and then watch Nancy run away all flustered that no one gives a damn who she is.

Tea Partiers Yell Slurs, Spit on Congressmen
By Adam K. Raymond


As House Democrats worked furiously yesterday to secure the 216 votes they need to pass health-care reform later tonight (they got them, by the way), the steps of the Capitol were full of angry protesters who wanted nothing more than to derail the proceedings inside. At one point yesterday, those Democrats had to walk by those protesters. That's when things got ugly.

An aide to Rep. John Lewis of Georgia, a leader of the civil rights movement in the 1960s, said that as he walked to the Capitol, Mr. Lewis was called racial slurs. A spokesman for Missouri Rep. Emanuel Cleaver said that a protester spat on the congressman as he was walking to the Capitol for a vote.
According to a statement released by Cleaver, U.S. Capitol Police quickly diffused the situation and escorted the congressmen into the Capitol. The police later found the spitter, but Cleaver declined to press charges.
Predictably, racial slurs weren't the only slurs thrown around by the protesters.

Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) was called a "f*****," as protestors shouted at him with deliberately lisp-y screams.
The Huffington Post says Frank shrugged off the incident, but South Carolina Representative James Clyburn was far less forgiving.

"It was absolutely shocking to me," Clyburn said. "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."
As unbelievable as the spitting and the slurs were, we've all learned by now that the real gems from the Tea Party protests come from the signage. Yesterday did not disappoint.


No one I have talked to on the right will acknowledge that this actually happened. It wasn't caught on camera, so it did not happen. shakehead.gif

The slurs mentioned in the article never happened.
video evidence proved that.

now about the spitting incident.
Barney Frank probably does the same thing when he goes on his rants about how republicans want to give tax cuts to the rich.

Fox news disagrees.....

Tea Party Leader, GOP Condemn Racial Slurs Hurled at Black Lawmakers


Republican National Chairman Michael Steele and one of the organizers of Saturday's Tea Party rally strongly condemned the racial slurs that some black lawmakers alleged were yelled at them by some health care protesters as they headed for a procedural vote at Capitol Hill.
"I absolutely think it's isolated," Amy Kremer, the grassroots coordinator of the Tea Party Express, told Fox News on Sunday. "It's disgraceful and the people in this movement won't tolerate it because that's not what we're about."

Steele rejected the notion that the incident may make any association with the Tea Party Movement a danger.
"It's not a danger," Steele told NBC's "Meet the Press on Sunday." "It's certainly not a reflection of the movement or the Republican Party when you have idiots out there saying stupid things."
"As Leader Boehner said, that's reprehensible," he said, referring to House Minority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio. "We don't support that."
The incident occurred Saturday after thousands of Tea Partiers descended upon Capitol Hill to rally against Sunday's major vote on health care reform.
Some of the protesters targeted a handful of black members of Congress and one gay lawmaker as they walked from the House office buildings to the Capitol to make a procedural vote.
Reps. John Lewis, D-Ga, and Andre Carson, D-Ind., both members of the Congressional Black Caucus, said that a group of protesters hollered at them and called them the N-word.
"They were just shouting. Harassing," Lewis told Fox News. "People being downright mean."
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."
Clyburn, who led fellow black students in integrating South Carolina's public facilities a half century ago, called the behavior "absolutely shocking."
"I heard people saying things today that I have not heard since March 15, 1960, when I was marching to try to get off the back of the bus," Clyburn told reporters.
Lewis was one of the most pivotal figures of the civil rights movement in the 1960s. He spoke alongside the Rev. Martin Luther King at the Lincoln Memorial during the "I Have a Dream" speech. And Alabama State Police fractured the congressman's skull as he led a march across the Edmund Pettus Bridge on what became known as "Bloody Sunday" in 1965.
"It's okay, I've faced this before," Lewis told Fox News about the incident. "I haven't heard anything like this in 40, 45 years. Since the march to Selma, really."
Carson is one of only two Muslims in Congress and was born nine years after "Bloody Sunday." Carson conceded he wasn't used to hearing such epithets.
"The beauty is that I was walking with a good sage who had been there before," Carson said, who with Lewis at the time.
First elected in 1970, Rep. Charlie Rangel, D-N.Y., is one of the founding members of the Congressional Black Caucus.
"You don't see any black folks in these groups," said Rangel. "Ever, ever, ever, ever, ever."
Rangel suggested that some of the protesters knew Lewis' story and deliberately went after him.
"They knew what he represented," he told Fox News.
Fellow CBC member Rep. Bobby Scott, D-Va., said nothing would surprise him from some of the bands of health care protesters.
"I have never heard anyone campaign for their freedom to be uninsured. I've never heard anyone campaign against Medicare," said Scott. "That's what you're dealing with."
But black lawmakers weren't the only targets of the protesters' invective. Rep. Joe Crowley, D-N.Y., alleges some of the demonstrators also castigated Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., who is gay.
"I don't even want to repeat it," said Crowley when asked what they said to Frank.
A spokeswoman for the U.S. Capitol Police said she was unaware of any law enforcement inquiry into the incidents.


Vedio evidence was inconclusive!

Racial slurs and spitting on Congress. No one heard or saw it, except the Congresspeople themselves, who likely were trying to provoke a response. IT didn't happen, bet on it. Maybe Pelosi and her gang could do a similar troll through the Wall Street protest.

Funny how the press is fine pushing that lie, but never showed the truth. Leftist media lying? No shock here!

So, if an actual crime gets committed, the only way that the prosecution can get a conviction is if there is video evidence? shakehead.gif

Sorry, enough people have come forward to state that this has unequivocally happened. The only video that was taken was insufficient to "prove" anything.

....unlike that birth certificate thing, which was just crammed packed full of "evidence."

Wash. Times quotes tea party activist Dale Robertson as saying, "I've never seen any racial slurs" at tea party events

Times quotes Robertson as saying that Democrats are "trying to label the tea party, but I've never seen any racial slurs." In a March 26 article reporting that "[t]ea partiers moved to distance themselves from the racial and homophobic attacks" against Democrats, The Washington Times' Joseph Curl reported that "Dale Robertson, founder of teaparty.org, said no one knows who might have yelled out racial epithets during" a recent Capitol Hill tea party protest. Curl later quoted Robertson as saying, "These people could be anybody. I wouldn't put it past the Democrats to plant somebody there. ... They're trying to label the tea party, but I've never seen any racial slurs." From the article:

Tea partiers moved to distance themselves from the racial and homophobic attacks. Organizers of several Florida tea party groups said in a statement that they "stand in stark opposition to any person using derogatory characterizations, threats of violence or disparaging terms toward members of Congress or the president."

At least 10 reports by congressional Democrats said they were harassed this week after voting for the health care bill. Congressional offices in New York, Arizona and Kansas were vandalized, and several Democrats reported obscenity-laced phone messages.

But Dale Robertson, founder of teaparty.org, said no one knows who might have yelled out racial epithets during the Capitol Hill protest. He said a Democratic lawmaker refused to accompany Capitol Police officers to identify a white man accused of spitting.

"These people could be anybody. I wouldn't put it past the Democrats to plant somebody there," Mr. Robertson said. "They're trying to label the tea party, but I've never seen any racial slurs."
However, Robertson was reportedly kicked out of tea party event for carrying sign with racial slur

Washington Independent reported that Robertson was kicked out of 2009 Houston tea party event for carrying sign with racial slur. The Washington Independent's David Weigel reported on January 4 that "Dale Robertson, a Tea Party activist who operates TeaParty.org, is getting stung for an old photo -- taken at the Feb. 27, 2009 Tea Party in Houston -- in which he holds a sign reading 'Congress = Slaveowner, Taxpayer = *****.' " Weigel also reported that "Josh Parker of the Houston Tea Party Society tells me that Robertson was booted out of the event for this sign."

[Sign was not include here on SOL, because Tim would kick my but for posting it, and rightly so.]

After the incident, he takes a few steps, looks at his hand, then wipes his hand on his mouth.

No.

However......

Racial slurs aren't a crime......yet
But, when you state a specific time and a specific place and numerous videos disprove you, wouldn't you say someone is lying?

Wow! I thought that it didn't happen?


Could have been an accident, but this would be a clear shot of the incident - he appears quit visibly upset, immediately speaking with the police and wiping his face off.
