If anybody throws out racial epithets during any protest, they should be singled out and discredited in public. On the other hand, any one who makes false charges of racism a protest should also be singled out and discredited in public.

After almost a week and a half, we are still waiting for proof of the Congressional Black Caucus claim that the “N” word was shouted at them at least 15 times by the Tea Party Members outside as the congressmen entered the Capitol building the weekend of the Health Care vote.

As Andrew Breitbart said last week:

Saturday’s “never mind” moment will live in infamy as the Congressional Black Caucus claimed the N-word was hurled 15 times. 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? Is it really possible that in 2010, in a crowd of 30 or 40 thousand people — at the center of a once-in-a-lifetime media circus — not one person’s flipphone, Blackberry, video recorder or a network feed caught a single incident? And if not, then at least someone could have found an honest tea partier to act as an eyewitness — or the Congressional Black Caucus would have confronted the culprit(s). If that had happened, there would be an investigation to see if the perpetrator was a left-wing plant.

So Breitbart thew out a challenge, If anyone could produce proof that the “N” word was used even just once, he would give that person $10,000 out of his own pocket. Its what we used to call, “put up or shut up”

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.

Last night Bill O’ Reilly had Al Sharpton on the show to discuss charges of the Tea Party Movement inciting violence. Sharpton is actually a good gust to have on that subject as Sharpton incited violence causing deaths in the Crown Height Pogrom, and the burning of Freddies Fashion Mart (of course O’Reilly doesn’t have the guts to confront Sharpton about those incidents).

The Fox news tough guy wannabe asked Sharpton about the charges of the Tea Party “N” word usage and Rev. Al claimed he has seen a tape that shows someone screaming the “N” word. (Video below)

AL SHARPTON: …congress using the N-word.
BILL O’REILLY: How do you know they did that?
SHARPTON: I’ve seen the tape.
O’REILLY: There is no tape.
SHARPTON: Of people that seen…
O’REILLY: There is no tape with the N-word on it. There’s no way. Let’s be clear. There’s no tape with the N-word on it.
SHARPTON: So everyone hallucinated the N-word?

So Reverend Al, are you going to call Andrew Breitbart to collect the cash? If you don’t have his E-mail address I can give you his twitter address.  You said you saw the tape. Breitbart is a stand-up guy, I am sure he will keep his word.

Unless of course Sharpton is lying like he has done so many times before.

Sharpton is not a big believer in the commandment about bearing false witness. Six-months after  the Tawana Brawly story broke the “Reverend”accused Stephen Pagones, Dutchess County’s assistant district attorney, of being one of Brawley’s attackers. He also accused district attorney William Grady of trying to cover up Pagones’ involvement in the crime, and he demanded Governor Cuomo immediately arrest the two “suspects.” Sharpton refused to provide evidence, saying only that they would reveal the facts when the time was right. But there were no facts. It was all a hoax, just like his claim of “seeing a tape” is a hoax.
