Leading Crank Admits There’s No Proof of Racist Black Caucus Attack–
Three weeks ago, the conscience of American liberalism, Frank Rich, compared the tea party protesters outside the US Capital to a small-scale mimicry of Kristallnacht for reportedly spitting on and flinging the n-word 15 times at members of the Black Caucus.
Well, much has changed since that column was published. We now have seen over half a dozen videos of the event in question and unfortunately for the liberal fabricators no racist hate speech came from the crowd. Congressman Cleaver has since retracted his story that he was spit on. Rep. Heath Shuler changed his story, too. He now says it wasn’t the n-word he heard, it was fagg*t.
And, Andrew Breitbart is still holding onto that $100,000 reward for proof of an attack.
This forced Frank Rich to change his description of the incident in this week’s column.
The New York Times reported:

It’s kind of like that legendary stunt on the prime-time soap “Dallas,” where we learned that nothing bad had really happened because the previous season’s episodes were all a dream. We now know that the wave of anger that crashed on the Capitol as the health care bill passed last month — the death threats and epithets hurled at members of Congress — was also a mirage.
Take it from the louder voices on the right. Because no tape has surfaced of anyone yelling racial slurs at the civil rights icon and Georgia Congressman John Lewis, it’s now a blogosphere “fact” that Lewis is a liar and the “lamestream media” concocted the entire incident. The same camp maintains as well that the spit landing on the Missouri Congressman Emanuel Cleaver was inadvertent spillover saliva from an over-frothing screamer — spittle, not spit, as it were. True, there is video evidence of the homophobic venom directed at Barney Frank — but, hey, Frank is white, so no racism there!
So, will the far left crank apologize now for comparing the tea party protesters to the Nazi Kristallnacht killers?
Don’t hold your breath.
