That is what I believe, and I’ll tell you why!
Blacks have used the race card nearly all of my adult life. I believe these Congressmen are lying. Lying is a great part of the male lingo in this inner city minority community. Truth doesn’t matter. What matters is what one wants to believe, not what is. I have more to comment on after the article.
Kerry Picket of the Washington Star wrote this blog article:
“Congressional Black Caucus member, Andre Carson, Indiana Democrat, claims that tea party protesters today hurled racial slurs at fellow CBC member Rep. John Lewis, a Democrat from Georgia. Mr. Carson said that “hundreds of people” were chanting “kill the bill” and he heard “at least 15 times” the “n – word” being thrown around.
“It just happened on the way to votes. Coming out of [Cannon Building]…John Lewis’ chief of staff came with us. It was just the three of us walking down the steps. ‘Kill the bill, Kill the bill…n-word,’ fifteen times,” he said. “Capitol Police finally became aware and began protecting us.”
A U.S. Capitol Police spokeswoman said she was unaware of any law enforcement inquiry into the incidents.
Missouri Democrat Emanuel Cleaver, a black congressman from Missouri, claimed he was spat on by a protester. Mr. Cleaver’s office reportedly said Capitol Hill Police arrested the protester, but his office did not press charges. However, Sgt. Kimberly Schneider of the U.S. Capitol Police said in an e-mail to the L.A. Times: “We did not make any arrests today.” “
I don’t believe for a moment that these people were either spat on or cursed. The question arises, “Are these folks who cook up stories?”
Yes……….because to curse, to shout threateningly, to spit is long been accepted in these minority communities when they go on their rampages whether the reason is rational or simply mob rule. In my high school teaching years, black ruffians would throw stones at our bus after a football game or two at their grounds. I was a regular chaperone to such events including at our school’s home events. There never ever, ever was a demonstration or even an individual misbehaving at our home sports events in northeast Minneapolis…black or white. However, go visiting over at North Senior High School, one expected trouble, including stones thrown, spitting, obscenities, including once when the entire bus was attacked with rocks and windows broken and a couple girls injured.
It was, and sometimes is still commonplace for gangs or merely groups interested in action in these communities to attack police when the police themselves might be called to quell a distrubance within the minority neighborhood….a time when one could get at Whitey!
In the black community so often its the community against any white….any white at all, including the blacks who are actually the police officers. They work “whitey”.
The key, here is, it is assumed that whites behave exactly the same way in white neighborhoods. They don’t behave any different from anywhere else.
In Minneapolis, where and when I taught, that simply was not the case. I don’t think it is today, either.
When I was transferred to a predominantly black senior high school in Minnepolis in 1972, the school was out of control. The black led administration tried very hard to provide some kind of order, but lying, cheating, beatings, extortions all by minority students were weekly affairs. The attackers were always blacks, every time, every single attack. The victims were split racially about fifty/fifty. The administration played many games of lets pretend……”Oh, this really wasn’t meant to be a robbery, now was it?”……a lie……..”Oh, he didn’t mean to steal your wallet, now did he?”……he wound up with the wallet in his pocket, so what?……Bricks were thrown into a classroom mostly of white students …thrown so hard one broke in half when it hit a radiator……”Let’s not report this. You should have locked your doors during class time anyway.”
Yes, that is nearly 40 years ago. Show me where cultural, ethical, moral, civil behavior has improved in the inner city’s teenage life since then. A lot more are murdered these days than back then.
By giving these examples to show telling the truth in the black community is common. Conning becomes a useful skill. The kids were taught to have great pride, whether they had earned it or not.
A girl threw a knife at another girl who had been sleeping with her man the night before. I had good control over my class, but that happened so quickly…in my classroom just before the bell had rung to start things going. The girl missed….but it made quite a noise when it hit the blackboard. When things calmed down….consider the choice of words the two girls expressed in the exchange of ideas that followed….as the rest of the class, racially even in number, tried to pretend nothing really had happened. They were used to pretending.
I suggested to the class that in my twelve years of teaching in predominantly white schools, I had never been even sworn at, never had heard a curse word uttered in my classroom, nor had any student ever been accosted in the halls….and I listed a few other offenses…robberies….white girls didn’t dare bring their wallets to school….and one half of the students in the classroom had been accosted, one beaten so much she had her front two teeth knocked out. I assured them such behavior simply wasn’t part of school where I had previously taught.
“I have taught in two schools here in the city. There is more crime and disorder occuring in one Monday through Friday time period than in all those twelve years of teaching.” I told the truth.
The black kids wouldn’t believe me. I was white, therefore I was lying……That is what the majority of these kids are told from before they enter kindergarten. These kids believed that white schools were just as disgusting in their chaos and disorder as black schools only “Whites never report about it in the newspapers.”
I do not believe these black Congressmen were assaulted in any way whatsoever. I’d bet they had never experienced a white political protest before. These people, age 55, 65, 70 were expected to slur and spit. A group or two of our Prager members, conservative church going folks from Minnesota, attended the Tea Party gathering in Washington, D.C. earlier last summer. This is an older crowd…..they would not have been pleased to see such ugly behavior. Also pictures are available and not one indicates anything but the chanting, “Kill the Bill!”
The group was expected to behave like those in the big city. Ugliness wouldn’t have been allowed by the group itself.
Some of the Congressmen have been offered ten thousand dollars to be given to their favorite charity if they would take a lie detector test about their claims.
