Wondering how much longer our mainstream media will try to mainstream the racists, bigots and whackjobs that are the bulk of the Tea Party movement:
WASHINGTON — Demonstrators outside the U.S. Capitol, angry over the proposed health care bill, shouted "nigger" Saturday at U.S. Rep. John Lewis, a Georgia congressman and civil rights icon who was nearly beaten to death during an Alabama march in the 1960s.
Protesters also shouted obscenities at other members of the Congressional Black Caucus, spat on at least one black lawmaker and confronted an openly gay congressman with taunts.
This after Tea Party protestors mock a man with Parkinson’s.
Cue the right wingers’ retort that “liberals are mean too!” Yeah, we might be big fat meanies but unhinged hostility seems to dominate the Tea Bag crowd. It was on full display in Nashville last month.
[UPDATE]: Hey Blue Dogs: you really want to cast your lots with this crowd?
