For days on end in March of last year we were exposed to one story after another about a Tea Party member allegedly spitting on a Congressman, a story supposedly substantiating the racism inherent in this burgeoning conservative movement. Never mind that many doubts later surfaced as to the veracity of what took place.
Raise your hands if you’ve seen any coverage of what follows on local or national news outlets:
In an edited video released Thursday, progressive protesters are shown calling for violent attacks on Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas while protesting outside a summit billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch held last week in Palm Springs, Calif.
Asked by the filmmaker to say what he would like to do to Thomas, one protester says: “put him back in the fields.”
“He’s a scumbag,” the man says. “He’s a dumb sh*t scumbag.” The man also said Thomas’s colleague, Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito, “should go back to Sicily.”
A young woman at the rally said that though she was “all about peace,” she would like for Thomas to undergo “torture.”
Two other protesters appear to call for Thomas’s death. When asked what should happen to Thomas, one person says “hang him” while another protester says “string him up.”
Videographer Christian Hartsock, who has worked with undercover specialist James O’Keefe in the past, told The Daily Caller this video is different from undercover work he’s done previously because he held a camera right up in these people’s faces.
“I’ve worked on undercover investigations before where hidden cameras were involved and this was not such a case,” Hartsock said in a phone interview. “In this case, I had a very prominent camera. These people knew that they were on camera and, in a way, I didn’t even deceive them.”
Clear and present racism and hatred completely ignored by those who are quick to report similar but false claims made against conservatives. It’s enough to make one retch.
Anyone who denies the obvious bias of today’s media is simply bat scat crazy.
