Do you remember all the media ginned-up brouhaha over the alleged incident in which a Tea Party protestor spat in the face of a black congressman? Emmanuel Cleaver? Ring any bells? Republicans were depicted as these racist haters.
Even though the event never happened and after the evidence – make that the lack of evidence – came out Cleaver started changing his story.
Even though with ten thousand cameras and recording devices all around that day, nobody ever produced any footage of somebody deliberately spitting in anybody’s face that day.
Even though conservatives offered $15,000 for any proof of intentional spitting. And never had to pay a dime.
What happened that day was a congressman getting too close to the face of somebody shouting “Kill the bill!” That’s ALL that happened. But you would have thought that a pointy-hood-wearing lynch mob had strung Emmanuel Cleaver up that day.
Let me show you what it looks like and sounds like for somebody to spit in someone’s face:
The local paper covered the story:
Protester spits on Romney supporter in Wisconsin

GRAND CHUTE — A bus tour event on behalf of Mitt Romney turned ugly Friday afternoon when a protester interrupted a rally and spit in a supporter’s face.
The event featured Wisconsin state Sen. Alberta Darling and Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch.
During Darling’s remarks, the protester, Mary Hoglund, 83, of Appleton, interrupted the event to ask about Republican opposition to Planned Parenthood.
A local Romney supporter began arguing with Hoglund, who then spit in her face. Hoglund was escorted out, and received medical attention for a scratch she received on her neck.
The supporter declined to give her name as she left the event, but said she was unharmed.
Hoglund said she was attacked inside the event, hosted at Hanson Benefits. The event was part of a statewide tour kicking off “Wisconsin Women for Mitt.”
Grand Chute police are reviewing the altercation for potential charges. Hoglund was taken away in an ambulance with what appeared to be minor injuries, including the scratch.
Chris Hanson, owner of the benefits provider, said the altercation caught her off guard.
“This is a private business and we invited a small group of clients and friends,” Hanson said. “Whatever happened to grace and mercy in politics? This isn’t a town hall meeting.”
Ben Sparks, a Wisconsin-based Romney spokesman, called the incident a “stunt” and said the woman refused to leave when asked.
Romney protester Kathy Lefebvre, of Green Bay, was escorted out with Hoglund.
“I’ve never experienced anything like that before, to me it’s unacceptable,” Lefebvre said. “Getting upset is one thing, but (Romney supporters) attacked Mary.”
Mary Jones, of Oneida, attended the event and was standing in the crowd of two dozen people near the altercation.
“It was very disrespectful,” Jones said. “One woman decided to be rude and was politely asked to leave. It was shocking.”
Kathy Lefebvre needs to find herself a functioning brain. If somebody spits in my face I’ll be attacking that person, too, you libturd dumbass. For this liberal idiot to try to depict Mary Hoglund as a “victim” after she just spat in somebody’s face is almost as unhinged as spitting in somebody’s face.
Republicans are the Party of the Tea Party and a lot of fed-up people peacefully assembling.
Democrats are the Party of the OWS movement that has had at least 7,387 documented arrests including for crimes such as rape, violence and terrorism. And lest you misunderstand, these Occupy cockroaches are being blessed by and protected by none other than Barack Hussein Obama. And this is what Obama’s movement looks like.
OWS fascists and illegal immigrant criminals. That’s your “hope and change.”
We just had a liberal literally go into a conservative organization with a gun and start shooting. That follows liberal fascist homosexuals demonizing and defacing Chick-Fil-A for the “crime” of defying these Nazis and standing up for their free speech rights. And if follows that obnoxious puke who thought he was one righteous hero for being a pissy little jerk to a decent girl at a Chick-Fil-A drive-through window.
Mind you, even BEFORE the Occupy Wall Street movement came along liberals were the source of all the actual violence and hate.
If you are a Democrat and you want to see what a truly vile human being looks like, get off your ass and go look in the mirror.
Somehow, I have a feeling this incident of a rabid liberal spitting in the face of a conservative woman at a Republican event won’t make it into MSNBC’s “coverage.”
For the record, Fox News played the clip of the Emmanuel Cleaver “spitting” incident quite a number of times – and I suppose you could argue that they did that BECAUSE NOBODY INTENTIONALLY SPIT ON ANYBODY AND THE VIDEO CLEARLY SHOWED THAT.
Obama’s campaign is the most dishonest, the most vile and the most vicious in American presidential campaign history. And that is because Obama’s supporters are dishonest, vile, vicious people and he is reaching out to the lowest and most loathsome element in America to try to win.
[Update, 8/21/12] I hope liberals don’t respond by citing the hate attack against lesbian Charlie Rogers. Because it now turns out that this sick woman literally carved swastikas onto her own body to “fundamentally transform” herself into a victim.
