Bill Minor Spreads Racial Slur Lie

Carrying water for the Black Caucus and plenty of other liberals, columnist Bill Minor recently stated that before the healthcare vote “as several black Democratic Congressmen walked past, the throng (tea-partiers?) hurled racial slurs and even spat on them for voting for the bill.”

This charge was laid out by Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) who has long been a racial bomb-thrower (here is one example). It was quickly picked up by liberal blogs and found its way leading the national news. This is just part of a well-orchestrated smear campaign to try to limit and de-legitimize healthcare and Obama opponents in general.

All this was done with no evidence to back it up. No videos have surfaced, and conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart has even offered $10,000 if Lewis could provide video evidence of his claim.

As far as I know, no one has come forward to pick up the check. But hey, who would expect Bill Minor to let the truth affect a good story?

    Bill Minor spreading lies? I suppose you could write a whole blog on the crap he writes if you really wanted to.

    What else would you expect from Minor-the Whiner? This slug is the reason I dumped that rag he works for years ago.

    I was there and did not see any of the reported spitting. There were some boos!! as they walked past but nothing more that I could see. At every Tea Party event there are trouble makers but they are usually planted there to start trouble and blame it on the Tea Party folk. This is just more of the libs trying to find fault with the American Conservative Movement. God Bless America.

    Did Gene Taylor make racially charged comments? or not? Parental Guidance was suggested.

    Andrew Breitbart upped his offer to $100,000 for video proof of these claims, and no one has collected on it. Go figure. The Dems are getting desperate in finding a way to cast negative light on the Tea Party movement.

    The lie is falling apart. Rep Emanuel Cleaver- a black Democrat who claimed he was spit on is now saying he never made that claim:

    Think we’ll see a retraction from Bill Minor next week?
