BREAKING: Cleaver Spit On and Called the "N" Word By Tea Party

The face of the Tea Party is shown for what it is.

Yesterday, as Congressman Emanuel Cleaver (D-KC) and Rep. John Lewis enterred the capitol to work on health care legislation, Cleaver was confronted by a group of Tea Party members screaming.

National reports are now stating that those members began yelling racial slurs, including the "N" Word to Cleaver, who was then spit on.

The scene is right out of the ugly days of the civil rights movement and forces us to ask, all of this over health care? Seriously?

Showing the face of the Democratic Party, Cleaver chose not to press charges. Those that know our Congressman know that even in the face of evil, he always forgives. That's a true leader in times like this.

Shame on the Tea Party for their racist agenda and shame on Republican leaders in Missouri for supporting such right wing activists.

We are calling on the Missouri Republican Party to make a public statement apologizing to Congressman Emanuel Cleaver for the situation he faced. If the Missouri Republican Party leadership can waste taxpayer dollars passing legislation rejecting health care reform, and the Lt. Governor can publicly speak out in rejecting health care reform, then they have to own the actions of their party's final attempt to block it.

That includes racial slurs and spitting on minority members of Congress.

  1. the constant drumbeat of hate from right radio has successfully roused the rabble... they really need to tone it down... but they won't... it's their ideology that concerns them, not their country.

  3. Rep. Cleaver knows his constituency is opposed to this health care bill and simply does not care. He is the one spitting on us!

  4. Apologize Peter KinderMarch 21, 2010 at 1:29 PM

    The racist Republican Tea Party should be ashamed. Lt. Governor Peter Kinder should make a public statement apologizing for the actions of a Tea Party movement he has endorsed.

  5. 12:33 over the last year America has watched the tea party members bring guns to events, use racial slurs regarding our president and other elected officials both verbally and on signs, and preach a number of talking points that are flat out crazy, angry and dangerous. Let's not act like they are angels. The insanity and hate of these protestors is their own worst enemy.

  6. You are entitled to your own opinions, but not your own facts.
    The Capitol police detained a man, but did not arrest him. Cleaver could not have pressed charges even if he wanted to, because the Capitol police determined that the detained man was not properly identified, and that no elements for a crime existed. Call them and ask them yourself, I did.
    Nobody was shouting the n word, the crowd was booing and shouting "Kill the Bill."
    Why would the members of the black caucus walk through the crowd? To attempt to incite them. It didn't work so they had to make it up.
    I challenge you to find one clip from one of the dozens that were there that shows anyone shouting the n word.

    No spitting - perhaps accidental at 1:20.

  9. It has become quite clear over the past week that this so called spitting incident did not occur as portrayed by the media or Congressman Cleaver. Cleaver owes the Tea Party an apology
