Days after the Tea Party style protests against health care reform in Washington D.C. the liberal media continues its attacks on the protesters and their alleged racist comments while ignoring documented offensive comments made by liberal Democrat members of Congress.
First off today there is Maureen Dowd who in her column said this about the protesters on Saturday;
Some base members of the Republican base showed themselves as the racist Neanderthals they are.
Protesters outside the Capitol on Saturday called two black congressmen, the civil rights hero John Lewis of Georgia and Andre Carson of Indiana, a racial epithet as they walked by. Another, Representative Emanuel Cleaver of Missouri, was called that epithet and got spit on. Barney Frank of Massachusetts was called an anti-gay slur. The anti-abortion Democrat Bart Stupak was called a “baby killer” by Texas Republican Representative Randy Neugebauer, who says he’s had a “tremendous outpouring” of support for his outburst.
It was disgusting. And for the Democrats who had battled each other through every twist and turn of health care, it was unifying.
Add to Dowd’s remarks are the Washington Post’s Courtland Milloy who took it one step further;
I know how the “tea party” people feel, the anger, venom and bile that many of them showed during the recent House vote on health-care reform. I know because I want to spit on them, take one of their “Obama Plan White Slavery” signs and knock every racist and homophobic tooth out of their Cro-Magnon heads.
I am sick of these people — and those who make excuses for them and their victim-whiner mentality.
