Out Of Pocket Tea Party Chumps & Protesters Spew Hate At Capitol Hill, The N-Word Used 15 Times

- By Bossip Staff Categories: Bolitics, KKK, News

Those ignorant behind Obama haters got all the way out of pocket at Capitol Hill yesterday:

House Democrats heard it all Saturday — words of inspiration from President Barack Obama and raucous chants of protests from demonstrators. And at times it was flat-out ugly, including some racial epithets aimed at black members of Congress.

Most of the day’s important work leading up to Sunday’s historic vote on health care was being done behind closed doors. Democratic leaders cajoled, bargained and did what they needed to nail down the votes they will need to finally push Obama’s health care overhaul bill through the House.

But much else about the day was noisy, emotional and right out in the open. After more than a year debating the capstone of Obama’s domestic agenda and just hours to go before the showdown vote, there was little holding back. The tone was set outside the Capitol. Clogging the sidewalks and streets of Capitol Hill were at least hundreds — no official estimate was yet available — of loud, furious protesters, many of them tea party opponents of the health care overhaul. Rep. Andre Carson, D-Ind., told a reporter that as he left the Cannon House Office Building with Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., a leader of the civil rights era, some among the crowd chanted “the N-word, the N-word, 15 times.” Both Carson and Lewis are black, and Lewis spokeswoman Brenda Jones also said that it occurred.

“It was like going into the time machine with John Lewis,” said Carson, a large former police officer who said he wasn’t frightened but worried about the 70-year-old Lewis, who is twice his age. “He said it reminded him of another time.”

Kristie Greco, spokeswoman for Democratic Whip Jim Clyburn, D-S.C., said a protester spit on Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Mo., 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.

Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., who is gay, said protesters shouted “abusive things” to him as he walked from the Longworth building to the Rayburn building. “It’s a mob mentality that doesn’t work politically,” he said. Obama’s Capitol Hill visit was the day’s emotional peak for House Democrats as he sought to energize them to finally approve the legislation.

He conceded that it could be tough for some to vote for the bill, but predicted it would end up being politically smart because once it becomes law people will realize they like its provisions like curbs on insurance companies.

“It is in your hands,” the president said in what Clyburn later called the best speech he’d ever heard Obama make. “It is time to pass health care reform for America, and I am confident that you are going to do it tomorrow.”

We will see how everything goes down later on today.

    I can’t believe this type of racism continues to exist in America. it’s obvious a majority of them are there not for the healthcare issue but because they are racists.

  • OBAMA IS MY PRESIDENT

    @Truth…honestly, saying the “n” word once is one time too many.

  • really

    okay, im new to this, but did anyone notice they never said president obama, it was always mr. Obama, i guess even after a year some people cant digest the fact he is the president. Also why are they evening mentioning guns, last i check this wasn’t a gun bill it is about health. Ignorance knows no limit. And the fact that people are saying offensive things only shows they cant keep up with the times and are afraid of change. Sad world we live in

  • afrodite

    it’s groupthink at its worst. it amazes me how these so-called patriots like to tout books like 1984 and the fountainhead and atlas shrugged (even going as far as to cite these books on their ignorant tea party signs), yet it seems like they have never read a single word of any of those books. everything they are goes against every virtue these books uphold, and they have the gall to twist the messages to fit their purposes

  • Ray

    @ GLOK….AGREED..COSIGN 100%

    No..we’re not ready! But some things (i pray) will force us to wake up!
