Capturing the racist vote

March 21, 2010 at 6:38 pm 1 comment

Not everyone who votes Republican is racist.  But everyone who is racist does vote Republican. 

Three Democratic African-American lawmakers – including civil rights leader Rep. John Lewis of Georgia – said demonstrators against the health care bill yelled racist epithets at them as they walked past. Rep. Emanuel Cleaver of Missouri said a protester spit at him. Rep. Barney Frank of Massachusetts, an openly gay Democrat, said protesters yelled anti-gay comments at him.

Cleaver released a statement late Saturday saying he…was called the “n” word as he walked to the Capitol for a vote and that he was spat on by one protester who was arrested by U.S. Capitol Police. Cleaver declined to press charges against the man.

While these Congressmen were walking to work, conservatives were screaming racial slurs at them that would get you thrown out of churches, schools, and just about any place of business.  This from the same group, of course, who said disrespecting Washington leadership is un-American.  Kinda puts the whole Natalie Manes thing in perspective.
