I remember the excitement of making a nice big pitcher of Lemon/Lime Kool-Aid at my grandmother’s house. In retrospect, the cup of sugar probably wasn’t ideal for my health, but at least the flavors were delicious. What I don’t remember, however, was ever enjoying a nice big glass of tea flavored Kool-Aid. Apparently, they’re making it now, and it’s not just for kids.
Yesterday, African-American Congressman reported being subjected to racial epithets and even spitting from a crowd of worked-up “patriots.” Of course, conservatives can’t take the word of someone like John Lewis, who in his life, has faced down much more serious threats than a bunch of redneck Rush Limbaugh wannabes screaming at him, so in the best tradition of Faux News, they engaged in some “journalism” to prove that all liberals are liars, and they found PROOF:
These radical liars with stop at nothing to ram their socialist agenda down America’s throat. And, the state-run media will report their racist filth without question.
Well, it’s hard to imagine more proof than that: a less than a minute long video in which we can’t see the Congressmen for much of the time and during which we can only hear the inane screams of the people closest to the camera operator. Far from proof that racial epithets weren’t uttered, this video is proof of the crazed atmosphere that the Republicans have worked up in their Tea Party stooges, an atmosphere in which racist speech and even assault seem quite likely.
