Well, we now know the name of this Harry Reid supporter and criminal:
The thug has been identified– His name is Jesse Walker.
When he’s not attacking Harry Reid’s opponents he likes to talk about Obamacare:

I thought the Associated Press coverage of the protests in Washington last weekend and of Breitbart’s speech in Searchlight is a very telling example of their bias. This is how I described it in an email to a friend of mine.
In a story about the protests outside the US Capital on March 20, the day before Congress passed the healthcare reform act, the Associated Press reporter Alan Fram, under the headline “Raucous, ugly buildup to House health care vote” wrote this:
“The tone was set outside the Capitol. Clogging the sidewalks and streets of Capitol Hill were at least hundreds – no official estimate was yet available – of loud, furious protesters, many of them tea party opponents of the health care overhaul.”
“Rallies outside the Capitol are typically orderly, with speeches and well-behaved crowds. Saturday’s was different, with anger-fueled demonstrators surrounding members of Congress who walked by, yelling at them.”
“”Kill the bill,” the largely middle-aged crowd shouted, surging toward lawmakers who crossed the street between their office buildings and the Capitol.”
“The motorcade that carried Obama to Capitol Hill to whip up support for the bill drove past crowds waving signs that read “Stop the spending” and “Get your hands out of my pocketbook and health care.” Many booed and thrust their thumbs down as Obama rode by.”
“As police held demonstrators back to clear areas for lawmakers outside the Capitol Obama’s speech, some protesters jeered and chanted at the officers, ‘You work for us.’”
“Rep. Andre Carson, D-Ind., told a reporter that as he left the Cannon House Office Building with Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., a leader of the civil rights era, some among the crowd chanted “the N-word, the N-word, 15 times.” Both Carson and Lewis are black, and Lewis spokeswoman Brenda Jones also said that it occurred.”
“It was like going into the time machine with John Lewis,” said Carson, a large former police officer who said he wasn’t frightened but worried about the 70-year-old Lewis, who is twice his age. “He said it reminded him of another time.”
Has anyone seen video or audio of the alleged racial epithets yelled at black lawmakers? I’ve seen video that showed nothing of the sort, but I have not seen any video substantiating the claims of the black lawmakers. The video I saw at www.GatewayPundit.com showed numerous people in the crowd with video cameras and a news video showed the same thing, including a shot of Jesse Jackson, Jr. who filmed the entire episode. With all the cameras filming the event what are the odds that not one of them captured the alleged slurs on film.
Until I see proof, I will consider the entire story or the racial epithets as a fabricated lie intended to paint the Tea Party Protestors as an angry mob prone to violence. This seems to be the Democrat narrative following their very unpopular vote on health care reform.
And to make matters worse, the liberal media is cooperating by spreading the lie. In a story on the tea Party protest in Searchlight, NV reported on March 28 by Michael R. Blood of the AP, “The vote (health care vote in Congress) was followed by reports of threats and vandalism aimed at some Washington lawmakers, mostly Democrats who supported the new law. The day before the vote there were hundreds of furious protesters on Capitol Hill, many of them tea party activists, and some black lawmakers said they heard racial epithets coming from the demonstration. It’s not known who made the remarks described by the lawmakers.”
“Speaking at the rally, conservative columnist Andrew Breitbart disputed any suggestion that tea party activists in Washington were involved, although he didn’t provide any evidence.”
Didn’t provide any evidence?! How can you provide evidence of something that never happened? This is prime example of the liberal bias in the media – spread the allegations of racism against conservatives as fact with no evidence then slam a conservative who disputes the allegations for not providing any evidence that it didn’t happen.
Welcome to America, comrade. Nice.
