I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

Republican House Leader Denounces Racial Epithets At Tea Party Rally

House Republican Leader John Boehner has denounced the reported racial and other epithets apparently hurled at Congressmen during yesterday’s Tea Party rally on Capitol Hill:

Boehner distanced himself from some of the tea party protesters at the Capitol on Saturday, who hurled racial and homophobic comments at some Democratic lawmakers.

“There were isolated incidents on the Hill yesterday that were reprehensible and should not have happened,” Boehner said.

It would be nice of others on the right would say that instead of engaging in a Zapruder-film like analysis of a YouTube video.

We know that someone called Barney Frank a “Faggot” because several reporters were there to hear it. We know that someone spit on Congressman Cleaver because the Capitol Police were there to witness it. Is it really hard to believe that there was some redneck racist in the crowd to call John Lewis a “N****R” ?
