Breitbart Calls On Congressional Black Caucus to Apologize for "N-Word" Accusations Against "Kill the Bill" Rally at U.S. Capitol; Video Disputes Claim
Here is a video that extensively dissects the claims made by members of the Congressional Black Caucus that "racial epithets" - specifically the "N Word" - were hurled at them on March 20, 2010, by members of the "Kill the Bill" Tea Party Rally outside the U.S. Capitol.
Now, Andrew Breitbart is flat out saying that it never happened. And he is now calling on the Congressional Black Caucus to apologize.
Be sure and read Andrew Breitbart's entire piece on the subject at Big Government. But here is a portion that gives some context to the video above:
When I offered a reward of $100,000 to be donated to the United Negro College Fund if anyone produced video and audio evidence that this occurred, I was accused of a publicity stunt (because everyone knows that the best way to get publicity in America is to accuse a civil rights icon of lying about racism). Rep. Carson himself suggested that my challenge was “a veiled attempt to justify actions that are simply unjustifiable.” Get it? He calls protesters racist and if you ask him to prove it, you’re a racist, too.
Needless to say, no one has claimed the $100,000.
But, I have taken my search one step further. I’ve asked some of the contributors to Big Government to also actively search for video. We have spent the last three weeks searching for any evidence that might support the allegations, without any help from the accusers. The primary accuser, Congressman Carson, who audaciously claimed the crowd screamed the “N-word fifteen times,” would not return our call. So we have gone part way to try and piece together the events of March 20.
Not only is the audio devoid of any racial slur, but the scene at Cannon clearly shows the congressmen coming down the steps completely unobstructed, and with a clear path to the Capitol. And, when we juxtapose the audio accusation Rep.Carson made moments after the alleged event occurred with actual video footage of the moment Rep. Carson claims he first heard the racial slur, it is as plain as day that Congressman Carson was not isolated by a mob and facing a racist throng that could conceivably hurl rocks at him. As you can see for yourself. . . MORE
