Skip to comments.KEN BURNS BLASTS TEA PARTY FOR RAMPANT USE OF 'N-WORD'
Posted on 12/05/2012 4:44:57 AM PST by lowbridge
Documentary filmmaker Ken Burns called both the current secessionist movement and elements of the Tea Party racist during an interview late last month on NBC's "Meet the Press."
The award-winning filmmaker doubled down on those accusations during an interview with Breitbart News.
Burns is currently promoting "The Central Park Five," a documentary detailing how five innocent teens were convicted of a horrific rape which shocked the Big Apple back in 1989.
The filmmaker, who works primarily on projects for PBS, says there wouldn't be a birther movement with a President Joe Biden in the White House. Burns then turned his attention to the Tea Party, saying a friend who attended a Tea Party event told him "almost every one she met there invoked the 'n-word'" about the president, he recalls.
That friend isn't the only one hearing that racial slur of late, he alleges.
"I have heard in last four years the 'N-word' used more often than in the rest of my life," the 59-year-old filmmaker says, adding Obama's detractors routinely call the president "un-American," the "other" and a Muslim.

Substantiate your charge, a**hole!!!!!!!
Ken Burns is lying. At not point EVER have I heard anything remotely racist at a tea party event. Ken Burns is an assh0le, and a relic. His 15 minutes ended years ago. He had one great work and has lived off that reputation since. I am done with anything he is involved with.
Man that dude has made one too many trips to the spray paint aisle....
1.) Prove the increase of the use of the word is due to the TEA party and not because of the rap culture
2.) Get an adult haircut
Everybody knows that Ken Burns is a pedophile. This is common knowledge in NYC, where he is a frequenter of underage bondage clubs. He even imports young boys from Cambodia to serve as his sex slaves. It’s all true, I swear.
Unfortunately, in the liberal world, especially at PBS, proof is unnecessary. A charge is adequate proof for la-la liberals.
That's very true.Nor would there be a "birther" movement if Condelezza Rice were in the White House.Are you startin' to detect a pattern here,Comrade Burns?
And BTW,Comrade Burns....now that you've played "the race card" here,tell us which of Osama Obama's policies would we be supporting if he was *entirely* white?
Blah. Blah. Blah.
It wasn’t democrats spraying down blacks in Selma. It was George Bush and the Tea Party.
Blah. Blah. Blah.
He must be seeking a large grant for another documentary. To continue on the gravy train he must periodically demonstrate his fealty to orthodox thinking publicly.
Seriously, the Tea Party was virtually invisible during the 2012 election or at least it maintained a very low profile. Yet since the election the vitriol against the Tea Party has once again increased in the media. Harry Reid has made some negative Tea Party comments in recent days. Many of the media pundits have commented on the need for the GOP to purge the Tea Party. Now Ken Burns is playing the race card and trying to tar the Tea Party as racist when anyone who knows about the Tea Party knows it isn’t about race. Can it be Obama and the Democrats fear a resurgent Tea Party?
Boycott the twirps productions......PBS is a non starter on the TV.
Who is Ken Burns?
Hey,that's good enough for me. ;-)
oh, he heard it from a friend who heard it
and he heard that word “a lot” over the past 4 years- maybe he’s watching BET shows and listening to hiphop and rap?
otherwise I wonder who he’s hanging our with?
You know, I saw that exact claim, that Ken Burns is a pedophile, written on the internet. My guess is that it is true.
Why do they insist on calling this idiot a “film producer?” The pictures in films move.
Yup. USDA Grade ‘A’ lieing sumbitch. Race has never been an issue with any Tea Party event. My wife attended a Tea Party gathering where an African American Baptist minister conducted the commencement prayer service.
See my tagline.
That’s a very serious charge.
Therefore, it must be true.
