It doesn’t appear to bother Bob Herbert at The New York Times approves when his paper publishes crude offensive sexual jokes about conservative protesters. He didn’t say anything when his comrade called tea party patriots- “teabaggers.”

In Washington on Saturday, opponents of the health care legislation spit on a black congressman and shouted racial slurs at two others, including John Lewis, one of the great heroes of the civil rights movement. Barney Frank, a Massachusetts Democrat who is chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, was taunted because he is gay.
At some point, we have to decide as a country that we just can’t have this: We can’t allow ourselves to remain silent as foaming-at-the-mouth protesters scream the vilest of epithets at members of Congress — epithets that The Times will not allow me to repeat here.
…But The Times will allow him to repeat “teabagger” as many times as he wants.
That’s just perfect.
Of course this story was debunked earlier.
The liberal media reported that tea party protesters shouted racial epithats (the n-word) at black Congressional members as they walked from the Longworth office building to the Rayburn office building on Saturday. One Congressional member even claimed it “was a chorus” of racist hate. But, a video released after the incident debunked these claims. There was no spitting, no shouts of N*gger, and no “chorus” of racist hate.
It was all made up.
The only victims were the tea party patriots who were slandered by the state-run media.
But, apparently Bob Herbert doesn’t care. It would ruin his fake hate story.
