Waiting on the bus to arrive, the growing crowd stood along NE Airport Way waving Fire Pelosi signs. We received many more waves, thumbs up and honks than we did single finger salutes.

GOP Leaders Apologize For Racial Slurs That Did Not Happen

by lewwaters

If there was ever any wonder as to why the GOP remains a minority party and only held the majority for a short period, this bogus incident and GOP Chair Michael Steele’s willingness to grovel is a prime example of why.

American citizens are incensed over this Democrat seizure of our healthcare system with a majority opposed to what is being done and how it is being done. Since last summer, Patriotic Americans have stood up to politicians at town halls and every meeting voicing our opposition to it.

In return we are called racists, traitors, malcontents and you name it by leftist Democrats.

Efforts to express strong opposition have been ongoing, right up to the last minute as Tea Party activists once again massed in Washington D.C., Saturday, March 20, 2010 to make our voices heard.

It should be no surprise that once again members of the Congressional Black Caucus accuse them of racism.

John Lewis (D-GA) claims that as he walked through the throng of protestors, someone called him a “n—-r.”

Emanaul Cleaver (D-MO) claims he was spat upon as he too walked through the middle of the protestors and a protestor was arrested. Capitol Police stated no arrests were made and today Cleaver is showing how kind-hearted he is by not pressing charges against the imaginary person never arrested.

Rep. Andre Carson (D-IN) says he heard the word n—-r fifteen times.

Even Barney Frank, openly gay and forever victim, claims someone called him a “fag.”

Needless to say, leftist media runs with this without any effort at verification at all, the goal being to marginalize American citizens exercising their free speech to speak out against government, as so many leftists have done for decades now.

Disappointing is to hear Republican National Chairman Michael Steele, Amy Kremer who organized the protest and House Minority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio all condemning the racial slurs because they did not happen!

Yes, we condemn such slurs even when directed at us. No one has condemned the lefts use of the sexually provacative word “teabagger” in applying it towards Tea Partiers and some have even used it on the floors of congress in denigrating American citizens.

For years, we have been called ‘white trash,’ ‘honkeys’ and ‘crackers’ with no comdemnation forthcoming from within the ranks of leftist Democrats.

But, a bogus charge by Black Politicans, many racists themselves, of having racial slurs hurled at them is isnatntly accepted as truth and condemned by the GOP, even though it never happened?

See for yourself in this video and pay attention to the Black Politicians walking through the crowd with cell phones raised, recording what went on themselves. Then ask, where are their recordings backing up their charges?

Saying I am disappointed at GOP leadership apologizing for this incident that never happened would be a gross understatement. They should have stood up and exposed the lies and this pitiful use of the race card where nothing racial occurred.

America has moved far beyond the 1960’s when this sort of racial unrest was common. And yes, we are not perfect and racism still exists in pockets.

But shouldn’t we deal with those pockets instead of fabricating incidents of racism?

The weakness of the GOP in apologizing for slurs that did not occur is as reprehensible as falsely claiming they did.

As long as GOP leaders sheepishly remain neutered out of fear of being called a racist, this nonsense and play on white guilt will continue and the GOP will remain in obscurity.

Chairman Steele, Representative Boehner, if you don’t have the balls to stand up to this chicanery, step aside and allow those who will actually fight for American citizens step in.

Shame on the Congressional Black Caucus for fabricating such a claim.

Shame on the GOP for apologizing over something that did not happen.

Grow a pair, or step aside.

The Columbian: Mouthpiece For Democrats

by lewwaters

Conservatives in Clark County have known for some time that the newspaper of record in Clark County, the Columbian serves as a mouthpiece for the Liberal Democrats when it comes to political reporting.

Yes, Editor Lou Brancaccio continually denies it, often claiming the papers 2004 endorsement of President Bush as “proof.” He is often seen in the comments section of his editorials making such claims of how ‘fair and balanced’ he is.

I often wonder if he is embarrassed to admit he is a Liberal.

Many were taken aback to discover editorials two weekends in a row critical of congressman Brian Baird’s announcement of not holding townhalls, Kitchen Too Hot? and What was Baird thinking?

It appears that the Columbian is now trying to make it up to congressman Baird for criticizing him. Apparently the paper did not expect Baird’s “Brownshirt” and “Lynch mob” comments to do any real damage to him and felt safe in publishing two mild criticisms, but as seen in the August 18 town hall, Baird has been hurt as citizen after citizen stood up expressing anger at our congressman.

In a feeble attempt to diminish any damage to Baird, we saw a couple fawning articles lauding Baird’s insincere ‘apology’ for his incendiary remarks leading up to Tom Koenninger’s August 19 editorial, Baird can recover from latest woes. At an earlier Chamber luncheon, according to many in attendance, Koenninger attempted to egg on Senator Patty Murray to encourage her to condemn angry citizens who have stood up at town halls to express their anger. To Senator Murray’s credit, she did not take the bait.

In the evening of the same day, the Columbian’s Kathie Durbin submitted an article, Baird talks health care with Rotary, again fawning all over the congressman, but somehow missed congressman Baird alluding to death threats he claims to have received as the excuse for first not scheduling town halls.

Outrage expressed by county Republicans and a release from Clark County Republican Chair Ryan Hart brought us the next days article, Death threat disclosure by Baird draws criticism, condemning Republicans who were outraged over what is now identified as his explanation for not scheduling town halls when he made the comment, “If there is a Ryder truck parked out front, it has my name on it.”

Ms. Durbin makes no comment on how she too missed the comment as such an explanation.

Questions by readers on the validity of such threats and a blog post from a local blogger stating the U.S. Capitol Police saying there were no such reports filed, led to two more attempts at cover, but fell short as the Columbian had to admit that the U.S. Capitol Police would not release any actual information on such a report being filed, saying only some “matter was under investigation.”

Today, August 25, we again see the Columbian returning to it’s pro-liberal mode as they publish an article hardly worthy of being on the front page of the local section, GOP fundraising ‘survey’ outrages some recipients, by Kathie Durbin.

A quick review of the article leaves one thinking the article would have been more accurately titled, “GOP fundraising survey outrages liberal Democrats Raymond and Louise Denny,” as it is all about the Denny’s, who recently transplanted from Connecticut, being offended by one question seen in a GOP survey accidentally sent to them from the RNC.

The “offensive question” merely mentions that government could use politics to determine who gets health care.

Ms. Durbin even quotes two pollsters that say such appeals are common in fundraising letters in her article.

Yet, Raymond Denny, who describes himself as a “Liberal Democrat,” and who received the letter mistakenly, took special offense at it and the Columbian seems only too willing to accommodate Democrats by giving the mishap undeserved coverage.

One wonders when Republican offense taken at a recent healthcare Fact Check Card sent out in an email attachment by Marlon Marshall, DCCC National Field Director, and containing at least two blatant lies will also be afforded front page status on the Columbian’s Local Section.
