John Lewis and Racial Slurs

Following the complete lack of evidence that John Lewis was subject to racial slurs at the recent Washing Tea Party, Andrew Breitbart has offered a monetary incentive for any video that shows such slurs being directed at Lewis.

It’s time for the allegedly pristine character of Rep. John Lewis to put up or shut up. Therefore, I am offering $10,000 of my own money to provide hard evidence that the N- word was hurled at him not 15 times, as his colleague reported, but just once. Surely one of those two cameras wielded by members of his entourage will prove his point.

And surely if those cameras did not capture such abhorrence, then someone from the mainstream media — those who printed and broadcast his assertions without any reasonable questioning or investigation — must themselves surely have it on camera. Of course we already know they don’t. If they did, you’d have seen it by now.


Rep. Lewis, if you can’t do that, I’ll give him a backup plan: a lie detector test. If you provide verifiable video evidence showing that a single racist epithet was hurled as you walked among the tea partiers, or you pass a simple lie detector test, I will provide a $10K check to the United Negro College Fund.

Damn. Who can resist that? If only there were video cameras amongst the crowd …

Kathleen McKinley at Right Wing News:

All video of the incident shows no such insults being hurled at Rep. Lewis. The left says they must have been edited. But with all the flip phones and videos of the event, not one person recorded it? Not even the media that were there?

Caron, of the Congressional Black Caucus said the “n” word was said “at least 15 times.” But as Big Journalism points out:

“YouTube video shows that at least two of the men in the procession were carrying video cameras and holding them above the crowd. They have not come forth with evidence to show that even one person hurled the vile racist epithet. The video also shows no head movement one way or another. Wouldn’t the N-word provoke a head turn or two?”

I’m sure that hundred of such videos will appear now. You just watch. Because if it happened, I’m sure it got caught on video. Oh, did I say, “if”?
