SEAN HANNITY, HOST: The most well-known Civil Rights organization in American history passed a resolution earlier this evening that condemns elements of the Tea Party Movement. Now, the resolution introduced at the NAACP national convention in Kansas City accuses Tea Party members of exhibiting, quote, "explicitly racist behavior" and trying to, quote, "push our country back to the pre-Civil Rights era."
Now, the document also claims that Tea Party members hurled racial epithets at African-American members of Congress. Now, those incidents have gone unsubstantiated, but that did not stop the NAACP from passing its resolution just a short time ago.
Joining me now with reaction, Andrew Breitbart from Breitbart.com, who has offered $100,000 to anyone with video evidence showing abuses by Tea Party members. And here in studio from the New York Civil Rights Coalition, Mike Meyers is with us.
All right, Andrew, let's start with you because these accusations are not substantiated. The one that they keep saying — I'm going to give four different angles of the accusation that a member of Congress, Congressman Carson, that racial epithets were used against him. We'll put it up on the screen. And what — we're doing this — again, there was a lot of media there, so we decided to go from four separate different angles.
Now, number one, you can see a lot of people have recording devices. You offered 100 grand. Has anyone ever offered the evidence?
ANDREW BREITBART, BIGGOVERMENT.COM: No, they didn't offer the evidence, and that's all I could do at the very beginning. But it took a few weeks to compile evidence of the videos of the exact area where Congressman Carson said that he walked down and heard the N-word 15 times by 15 different people. And he said that the people started to crowd around them, like he thought that they were going to throw rocks at them.
We can show you these videos where it clearly did not happen that way. And we see Congressman John Shadegg walking a beat behind them with a smile on their face. And you don't hear anything. You hear, "Kill the bill, kill the bill," and that's it.
HANNITY: Yes. Well, Mike, I mean, look, this is the NAACP here — "explicitly racist behavior." I think one of the worst things you can call somebody is a racist.
MICHAEL MEYERS, NY CIVIL RIGHTS COALITION: The NAACP is a 101-year-old organization. It is showing signs of Alzheimer's. It is a kind of brain death. Anybody white who disagrees to the NAACP is a racist. Anybody black who disagrees with NAACP is pilloried with racial calumny. They're Uncle Tom or they are a Negro.
This is a sign of brain death because this is — and the irony of it all is that the NAACP is accusing the Tea Party of wanting to push America to the past, pre-Civil Rights era. That's exactly where the NAACP is stuck, in the past! It does not see, it does not recognize the significant racial progress in this nation.
HANNITY: All right, the president said of the NAACP — he said the following. He said, "We felt that the time had come to stand up and say..."
MEYERS: And who is that?
HANNITY: It's — it's...
MEYERS: Yes, Ben Jealous, a nobody.
HANNITY: OK. Well, hang on a second. The time has come to say — it's time for the Tea Party to be responsible members of this democracy and make sure that they don't tolerate bigots or bigotry among their members.
Now, here's the problem.
HANNITY: If that is the standard...
