Important New Theory In Alleged March Racial Epithet Incident

Posted on | July 25, 2010 | 14 Comments

Power Line notes the NYT partially walks back the claim of the infamous word falling between ‘bigger’ and ‘rigger’ being used at the Kill the Bill protest in March.

there is no evidence that epithets reportedly directed in March at Representative John Lewis, Democrat of Georgia, outside the Capitol, came from Tea Party members.

So, perhaps somebody with an iPod and some speakers was standing inside the building, listening to gangsta rap, and the Congressmen heard it as they came out. Then the whole incident could be downgraded from ‘victimized by racial epithets’ to ‘experiencing art’. Look at me being a Helpy Helperperson!

Back to my Rule 5 Sunday work. Check back in an hour-ish.

Update: More at American Power.

    But it’s a well-known fact that slave ships crossing the Atlantic were full of tea party captains who used the “N” word so much it altered the very sociolinguistics of the ocean to this very day. Even now, sharks along the western coast of Africa use the “N” word indiscriminately, and have reportedly been seen flying the Gadsden flag from time to time.
