The Incredible Shrinking Man and his False Charges of Racism

As I've noted in these pages, John Lewis has become an incredible traitor to his heroism of the 60s. He advocates entitlements which is nothing more than slavery since someone has to provide those entitlements. But he's not content with just that. He now has said (March 20) that as he walked the gauntlet from his office to the Capital, he was called the N-word. Now we learn there is no evidence of such occurrence on the videos taken of that event. None. Nada. So now we have Congressman John Lewis standing with pants around his ankles branded as a liar determined to foster an environment of racial hatred. John Lewis IS the Incredible Shrinking Man.

Representative Carson is the main talker in this story, but John Lewis was a participator, corroborated it and commented on the event. (John Lewis was necessary so he could compare this to his 60's march to produce extra effect.) He should have kept his mouth shut and looked to see what was actually happening. This would have ended better for him. Will John Lewis, that FORMER tower of a man and FORMER hero of mine, end up "gonged" as an embarrassment.

Andrew Breibart means business. He sees the corrupt, partisan nature of the main stream media. Caught in the throes of post-modernism, it doesn't care about working to report the facts. It intends to shape the narrative. In other words, it is nothing more than a propaganda organ for the White House and the Democrats. He's calling the MSM to account.

NO MORE BEER SUMMITS: TEA PARTY 'N-WORD' INCIDENT DIDN'T HAPPEN, AND THE CONGRESSIONAL BLACK CAUCUS OWES AMERICA AN APOLOGY

by Andrew Breitbart

Rep. Andre Carson wants to change the subject. I don’t blame him.

On April 13, 2010 he told AP reporter Jesse Washington, “I think we need to move toward a dialogue that explores why this kind of divisive and reprehensible language is still making it into our political debate.”

The “divisive and reprehensible language” that Rep. Carson is referring to is his claim that while he left the Cannon office building on March 20 with Rep. John Lewis, they were verbally assaulted by health care protesters hurling the “N-word” at them. He said the scene was so hostile he “expected rocks to come” when he was coming out of Cannon.

I wanted to see the evidence. I wanted the truth. In the course of our search we have actually uncovered further video evidence that casts serious doubt on Rep.Carson’s claims:

Now this story is much more important than the accusation of fifteen racists among the thousands of protesters that day. This is now about the accusers.

It’s not just that Congressmen Carson’s accusation of an extraordinary racist verbal assault by the tea party participants on March 20 doesn’t appear to have occurred, it’s that the accusers have now gone into the bunker and, having raised the incendiary subject, are doing everything they can to avoid the discussion. Why? What’s changed?

When the accusation was made, the mainstream media made it the number one topic on every news show. The Democratic Party was leading the discussion. But when confronted on the baseless accusation, without even a modicum of evidence that it actually happened, other than an assertion, the Democratic Party, and its symbiotic allies the mainstream media, want to have another “beer summit.”

No. The Democratic Party and the political left cannot use the race card to shut up its opponents based upon pure fabrication any longer. This failed tactic ultimately serves to mitigate accusations of real racism — which we are not saying doesn’t exist.

When I offered a reward of $100,000 to be donated to the United Negro College Fund if anyone produced video and audio evidence that this occurred, I was accused of a publicity stunt (because everyone knows that the best way to get publicity in America is to accuse a civil rights icon of lying about racism). Rep. Carson himself suggested that my challenge was “a veiled attempt to justify actions that are simply unjustifiable.” Get it? He calls protesters racist and if you ask him to prove it, you’re a racist, too.

Needless to say, no one has claimed the $100,000.

But, I have taken my search one step further. I’ve asked some of the contributors to Big Government to also actively search for video. We have spent the last three weeks searching for any evidence that might support the allegations, without any help from the accusers. The primary accuser, Congressman Carson, who audaciously claimed the crowd screamed the “N-word fifteen times,” would not return our call. So we have gone part way to try and piece together the events of March 20.

Not only is the audio devoid of any racial slur, but the scene at Cannon clearly shows the congressmen coming down the steps completely unobstructed, and with a clear path to the Capitol. And, when we juxtapose the audio accusation Rep.Carson made moments after the alleged event occurred with actual video footage of the moment Rep. Carson claims he first heard the racial slur, it is as plain as day that Congressman Carson was not isolated by a mob and facing a racist throng that could conceivably hurl rocks at him. As you can see for yourself.

How many more “Duke Lacrosse” faked events should America endure? The list from Madonna Constantine at Columbia University all the way back to Al Sharpton’s unforgivably grotesque Tawana Brawley case, the media plays its role to divide this country on its most sensitive schism: race.

The grassroots and the million-strong Tea Party have been forced to be held accountable against every discussion of vile racism even though they have been proven to do nothing wrong.

The false accusation of racism grants left-wing hooligans carte-blanche to act out on their dehumanized Tea Party counterparts. That’s what the intention was with the false accusation. That was the game plan. It ties together with the similar strategy as employed by Pres. Clinton and Richard Trumka to compare tea partiers and the environment they are creating to a petri dish of hate that will spawn the next Timothy McVeigh or Lee Harvey Oswald.

The left is playing with fire. They are playing fast and loose with the facts and making things up when there are no facts at all. Just because the media (the left’s main enabler), wants to forget about it and move on doesn’t mean we will. We will remain on this case until it reaches closure.

As long as this false narrative lives to fuel the hatred of the activist left, which has on many occasions been acted out against Tea Party activists and other law abiding protesters, we will keep this story at the editorial forefront.

It is a slander with real-world repercussions.

The absence of a real investigation by a press that played up the accusations is a more-than-tacit admission that they were hoping the allegations were true. When I mentioned the lack of response to the $100k offer to Politico’s Ben Smith, he messaged me on Twitter: ‘I think you’ve pretty much won this one, no?’

But how does that “win” manifest itself? On April 15, the day of the Tax Day Tea Party in front of the White House, and being interviewed by ABC’s Terry Moran for Nightline set to air Tuesday night, I passionately defended the movement against the powerful racism charge that has been greatly pushed by the Congressional Black Caucus’s accusation of a 1960 Selma-like incident near the Capitol.

At least twice during the spirited questioning by Moran, bystanders screamed “racist” at me.

The power of the propaganda. The power of the repeated accusations. The power of the relentless race-based line of questioning. They are all adding up to the liars and slanderers getting exactly what they wanted. The Tea Party is marred by racism charges while Congressman Carson, at the least, should be facing an ethics investigation, and a civil rights legend should be asking for forgiveness for allowing for the hateful lie to stand.

The “win” Ben Smith speaks of comes in the form of silence. Our nation is split down the middle and the press has chosen to play for one side and one side only.

Congressman Carson refuses to respond to our requests because he can’t answer questions that deserve answers. The press is drawing a line in the sand for those that are doing the job the press should be doing: “Are you calling a civil rights legend a liar?”

Unfortunately, I am. And the mainstream media are as complicit in this lie as Congressman Lewis.

It pains me to no end to see this Administration and the leading Democrats fan the fires of racism. There is so much pain that has been caused by that clearly erroneous doctrine. And yet, here we have leaders working overtime to grow more of it
.

This shows me how small these men are - Obama in particular, since he is in the top chair. He has the ability and the power to speak in a way that would quiet racial fears. I know of no one that wouldn't applaud this. It would be a noble role to play. Yet, he does the opposite at every opportunity without exception.

This is why he needs to go. We don't need to take 30 or 40 years to try to repair this damage.

What I'm hoping is that the blacks see that Obama is going off the rails. They then leave him behind and speak a much better and inspired possibility. If that happens, we will see them grow out of this experience. In fact, I see the possibility that blacks will jettison an affirmative action attitude because they see that it is causing resentment in their workplaces and such. If they rise above that, the truly independent black will have been born.

One of the signs that I know this has happened is when some of that race call the others to account. Someone right now ought to take this opportunity to call Obama, Lewis and the others to account. This is what it will take to show that maturity has finally arrived in the blacks.

At that point, they will start to be seen less as blacks and more for the quality of their character - as individuals who have something to offer. There is no shortage of potential.

If someone plays the Race Card, is he a racist?

I would say he is. My reasoning goes like this. Racism is the use of race to cause you to act in a certain way. It's purpose is to bypass your mind and go straight to your emotions - namely, fear. It causes the fear by threatening loss - loss of influence, loss of popularity, loss of moral stature in the eyes of others and yourself if you give in to it. Racism has always been used for such purposes and Congressman Lewis, President Obama, the Congressional Black Caucus, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Reverend Wright, Jainane Garofalo and many others are all racists. They use racism in exactly the same way that the KKK used it - to scare the "bejesus" out of you, to intimidate you, so you will act as they want you to act - namely to get out of their way so they can do what they please. The KKK may have been willing to kill you physically. The modern KKK (the black racists and their hangers on) are willing to kill you politically, destroy your reputation and often your livelihood.

Just as Nazism (Fascism) produced concentration camps and physical pain, modern Fascism achieves its means by different, non-hands-on primarily mental means. The effects are the same: the intention to cause real costs in the real world.

There are two sides, as traditionally conceived, to the moral equation. There's the master and there's the slave. There is the one in control of things and there is the victim of his control.

German fascism was the master variety. US fascism is the victim variety. (That's why the sob story is so important in this era.) The results are the same - just coming from different angles.

Both exclude the possibility of human and political freedom. Both destroy people's humanity and render them as farm animals - you know, like bovines. Guernseys are different color than Jerseys.

Lewis is in a "cow conversation", not a human conversation.

What you are saying about racism reveals that racism is a type of discrimination because it is exactly the same motive and result of the attitude of the left toward the Tea Parties. To them, the Tea Party people are the new inferior "breed", the people who deserve ridicule and exclusion from society because they are a threat to the "Master" establishment. Same motive, same method, same hatred, same unfairness, same insults, same result...isolation, unpopularity and exclusion.
