Calling out the Liars: Rep Cleaver, Rep Lewis and Rep. Carson – You Lie!
Andrew Breitbart has offered up a $100,000 reward, to be donated to the United Negro College Fund, for any evidence of spitting or name calling occurred outside the Cannon Bldg.
So far, no takers.
Larry O’Connor of Big Journalism and BTR’s Stage Right Show offered a collection of videos submitted by readers present on the steps of the Cannon Building when the CBC made their way through the crowds:
Clearly, these videos refute the lies spread that day by Reps Cleaver, Lewis and Carson. It is imperative to ask the uncomfortable question about the character of these individuals, regardless of their past actions. The media is willing to take them at their word, despite the preponderance of evidence refuting their claim and the absence of any evidence to support their statements.
Andrew Breitbart gets to the heart of this issue in his recent post No More Beer Summits:
Congressman Carson refuses to respond to our requests because he can’t answer questions that deserve answers. The press is drawing a line in the sand for those that are doing the job the press should be doing: “Are you calling a civil rights legend a liar?” Unfortunately, I am. And the mainstream media are as complicit in this lie as Congressman Lewis.
It is truly a sad day when those dedicated to equality among races become the racist monster they dedicated their lives fighting against.
It is time for Reps Cleaver, Lewis and Carson to apologize to the American people then resign from office. Men of character would do no less.
