In a recent AP column, Michael Blood says it's up to Andrew Breitbart to prove that Tea Partiers didn't yell the N-word in Washington last Sunday.
He writes: "Conservative columnist Andrew Breitbart disputed accounts that Tea Party activists in Washington shouted racial epithets at black members of Congress amid the health care debate, although he didn't provide any evidence."
Hmm — "although he didn't provide any evidence." This would be funny if it wasn't so slimy.
I mean, first of all: The burden of proof should be on whoever is making the accusation. And Breitbart is offering up 100 grand to be donated to the United Negro College Fund if anyone has evidence. So far — zilch, which is why the AP dope is so dopey.
Look, this debate is basic: It's small government vs. big government. So how cowardly do folks like Blood and Frank Rich have to be that they can't drop the racial crap and defend their love for collectivism? I guess they know a racial charge far outweighs any benefits of winning an argument.
The next time someone says it's about race, simply reply, "Is that all you got?" And then ask them these five questions:
1. How could adding 32 million people to the health rolls save us money?
2. How is hiring thousands of new IRS agents to enforce this not an expansion of government?
3. How can you be considered a "child" until you are 26 years old?
4. How is forcing everyone to buy something constitutional?
5. How could there be no tort reform in this?
If they respond, "You're just asking that because he's black," then respond with, "You're just saying it because I'm hot."
Then take their wallet. Tell them you're "spreading the wealth around."
And if you disagree with me, you're probably a homophobic racist who eats bunnies and I bet you can't prove otherwise!
