Rep. Lewis, Rep. Cleaver Attacked By People For Being Called ‘Nigger’ And Being Spit On

It never ceases to amaze me the lengths that some conservative black people will go to protect racism at Tea Party rallies while attacking black leaders for being called “nigger” or being spit on by protesters.

That thought brings me to comments I read from conservative blogger Andre Harper, who proudly talks about himself as a black man who was at Tea Party rallies. Hey, that is fine by me. If he wants to hang with those individuals then that is no doubt his choice. If he chooses to ignore the racist language at many of these rallies, if he chooses to ignore that these Tea Party people were silent (nonexistent) prior to the election of Barack Obama as the first black president of the United States of America, then that is his choice. Again, where were these Tea Party people worried about big government, government spending, the loss of freedoms and all of this other stuff when George W. Bush was president? They were silent. But, we elect the first black president and all of a sudden these good and patriotic Americans are soooooooooo worried about freedom, government spending, deficits, the size of government, etc. It’s all a bunch of bullsh!t. To each their own.

But, it still saddens me when racism apologists/excuse makers you see people make comments like the following (from Harper’s blog):

Democrat puppets like representatives [Emanuel] Cleaver and John Lewis are nothing but frauds. They instinctively play the race card because that is how they have achieved their lot in life. No one should be surprised that they can’t prove these accusations. They never can. With all these videos surfacing, the large police presence and all the witnesses, I find it hard to believe that no one can identify or find any evidence of their claims. It’s disgraceful and completely unfounded for John Lewis to compare this peaceful protest to his experience on the Pettis Bridge. The situations and conditions are completely different. The truth is these cowards are always going to play the race card because they are weak-minded, cowardly individuals that exploit race by instinct.

The words are nothing short of disgraceful and ridiculous. Oh, and it’s the Edmund Pettus Bridge.

Rep. John Lewis is a man who fought and bled for civil rights to allow men like Harper and myself to be able to blog with the kinds of freedoms black people of prior generations could not have imagined when they were young. Sadly, Harper uses his platform as a blogger to refer to John Lewis (and Emanuel Cleaver, who had a Tea Party person spit on him) as “Democrat puppets.”

Once again, we see the lengths that people will go to apologize for or make excuses for racism at Tea Party (that includes Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele).

    Very good points made. It is VERY disappointing that people, LIONS, like John Lewis are marginalized by people, PUPPETS, like Andre Harper…who are eerily comfortable with taking sides with the “others” and NOT giving ANY credit to the veracity of the claims made by those who have experienced and witnessed racism at tea party rallies (like the veiled racism of creating a sign that says “KILL the bill” with “the bill” in tiny letters and a huge picture of President Obama to the right). I’m going to make a prediction right here. Sarah Palin (obviously nurturing a plan to run for president as a tea-party candidate) will not make it to the election time as she will SURELY put her foot so far down her own throat that any flatulence will have an odor of nail polish. Tea party people are not sophisticated enough to veil their true racial tenor (as evidenced by their all-white make-up and lack of existence before Obama – as you pointed out)…and Sara Palin isn’t sophisticated enough to continue her ruse of being worthy of presidential status.
