The Hill keeps pushing the completely unsubstantiated “racist tea partiers shouting the n-word at black congressmen” story, even though their accompanying piece about Jesse Jackson has no similar thing taking place:

Rev. Jesse Jackson confronted an angry crowd of approximately 200 Tea Party protesters outside the Capitol on Sunday evening while his son, Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr. (D-Ill.), filmed the encounter on his cell phone.

Jackson was visiting the Capitol to witness the expected passage of healthcare reform legislation, and he walked out of the building at 6:45 p.m. with his son. As he walked by a grassy knoll below the Speaker’s Lobby balcony, protesters were chanting anti-reform slogans and waving signs.
[...]
Jackson’s interaction was particularly tense given the assault on Saturday of two black congressmen by Tea Party protesters. Reps. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.) and John Lewis (D-Ga.) were spat at and called the N-word as they entered the Capitol.

The Hill joined CNN, NBC, CBS, Fox News, ABC and countless newspapers and websites who reported Cleaver and Lewis’ “n-word” claims as fact while showing absolutely no evidence to support it.

Watch in horror as absolutely nobody in the crowd calls Jackson any offensive names, in spite of Jesse’s best efforts — but there is one protester who’s so racist that he won’t let Jackson take his sign:

    But of course there's no evidence of bad behavior as so many have claimed. I've been to 3 tea party rallies and have yet to see or hear any racial slurs or comments. There may be a sign here and there that's a bit over the top….but nothing like some have claimed. I honestly think the left throws a plant or two in the crowd.

    I wouldn't say that the Tea Party members were all racist.
    TV coverage of tea party protest seem to show an overwhelmingly white constituency.
    And some of the posters that they've been waving do have a racist undertone…showing president as a monkey or an african witch doctor.
    They are not very organized so it's hard to tell if they are opposed to Obama or to other things like big government and deficit spending.
    Certainly the same folks were very tame when a white president was running up the deficit spending and expanding the government with things like a new Department of Homeland Security…and replacing private airport screeners with government employees.
    The racial slur that were hurled at Black Congressmen yesterday seems to indicate that there are some protestors who are racially motivated. For them a black president is probably much to stomach.
    But it's hard to say because they are not organized and when push comes to shove they probably don't agree with each other on a lot of issues.

    I was there and the teabaggers were intolerant and obnoxious. They kept anyone else from holding a sign that opposed their point of view – and as you can see they were rude and disrespectful even to congressmen. You can see they kept putting that sign up to his face so he couldn't talk to the small number of pro-reform people. Cowards and hypocrites and they dont even believe in free-speech, let alone the constitution.

    Poppycock and Balderdash. Foramen is describing a typical MoveOn.Org Anti-Bush rally where people were obnoxious, intolerant, and pretty much over the top.
    And they were almost universally uninformed about their pet beef: the War in Iraq.

    As to the Tea Party in question: I've screened about 2 hours of videos from various people in the crowd and not one–NOT ONE–person is overheard using racial slurrs. Zip! Want proof? Not one video clip is playing on the news to buttress these bogus claims racism. And Jesse Jackson Jr. had his cell camera out just for that very pupose!

    Obviously the standard tactic of the Obama Kool Aid Crowd is to paint the entire movement as racist louts. That's just the cynicism of politics as usual for these power hungry dirtbags. Good luck with that, Foramen.

    You'll never be able to smear a true grass roots movement with such transparent trickery since Grandma and Grandpa Kettle and their Leave-It-To-Beaver familes make up the heart and soul of the Tea Party phenomenon. Rascists, my butt.

    "Certainly the same folks were very tame when a white president was running up the deficit spending and expanding the government"

    What a joke you are! If we take Barry's spending and simply rolled back to the highest of budgets in the "Bush Era", it would be the LARGEST CUT IN FEDERAL SPENDING IN THE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES!
    And get off of the "black" thing, man! Nobody gives a rip about his skin color! Only you, and those like you (Marxists), put people into micro-grievance groups. We get it. you need victims and a "target". "Pick a target, freeze,…" yadda, blah, etc; your Alinsky tactics have grown tired and stale. They don't work anymore. And read "rules for radicals" again because you're not doing it correctly. Or, just keep pushing that negative against the tea party people, right on through to a positive. :) Just like you jackasses tried with Sarah Palin. She thanks you greatly…as does her accountant. Ha ha ha ha. we'll see your ass in November, you racist.

    MoveOn.org is hate personified. And I believe funded by the gazillions of dollars of leftist gazillionaire George Soros, or as I like to call him, "The Statist Obama Puppet Master."

    To Leo Leone: Love your concluding statement: You'll never be able to smear a true grass roots movement with such transparent trickery since Grandma and Grandpa Kettle and their Leave-It-To-Beaver familes make up the heart and soul of the Tea Party phenomenon. Rascists, my butt.

    Well said.

    for anybody to say the tea baggers are not racially motivated is lying to themselves and are not fooling anybody with half a brain. There are so many parallels to the KKK that it's actually scary. But, thanks to Rand Paul (the latest example of many), the first being (sarah palin) there is no way mainstream America will ever go that far to the right. Sure, you'll get your 25% of the far right luinitic fringe, but you will get very few of the independants. You will see this November… Oh, and Fox News, they are slowly but surely becoming exposed for what they are. Thank goodness for the Rush Limbaughs and the Glen Becks…. I wouldn't want them to go away for nothing, they are our saviors, really… You all aren't smart enough to embrace, for example: Charlie Christ, or even Romney… no, then we'd be nervous. But, the whacko's you've chosen… we're not scared.

    Karin: Say what????? NO EVIDENCE of bad behavior at the tea party protests/marches???? R U high? Seriously, you tube and you will see some very disturbing, ugly images and if they weren't in color, you'd think it was 1960 all over again. WOW! You obviously get your news from Fox, they only show you what they want. you need to do some independent research so you'll know the TRUTH! how can nbc, cbs, abc, cnn, msnbc, pbs, cbc all be wrong, yet Fox News and every Print Media owned by Murdock be right? it's time to ask, is it us???? Yes, Karin, it's you! But, you are not totally to blame, you have been bombarded with lies for years.
