KEN BURNS BLASTS TEA PARTY FOR RAMPANT USE OF 'N-WORD'
breitbart ^ | december 4, 2012 | christian toto

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.

Yep! Libs frequently telegraph their fears. Remember a lady named Sarah Palin?

You are exactly right ,, Geo. Stephenopolis out of the clear blue asked Mitt Romney about a womens right to contraception during one of the primary debates and the Mean Streak Media picked up on it and it was then used as part of the GOPs platform when it was never ever talked about by any of the primary candidates .

Plant the seed of misinformation and let the Mean Streak Media do the rest .

Good morning.

Someone should be very happy...

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.

Then Mr. Burns, your "friend" should take the evidence to Brietbart.com and collect the $100k.

Oh, your "friend" didn't record it? Then go to the next rally (since it's so pervasive), and get the evidence. I'm sure your "friend" could use an extra $100k, right? I know I sure could use an "extra" $100k.

Sheesh.

Even if they used it, so what? This idea that one side is held to a different standard is BS and they can go FT.

We have a huge network of TEA Party people around us here and I have never heard the “N” word said. This is a bunch of BS, prove it, show us a video, play us audio tapes.

Where was Ken Burns when Harry Reid referred to Obama’s “Negro dialect”?

Where was Ken Burns when Sloe Joe Biden said Obama was the first AA who was “clean and articulate and bright”?

Where was Ken Burns when Je$$e Jack$$on said he wanted to violently remove Obama’s testicles?

Where was Ken Burns when a sitting US Senator, of the Democrat party, unabashedly used the “n-word” twice on a national cable news program?

If that bothers you, then stop watching BET.

One of my son’s friends got a minority scholarship to a predominantly black college where he stuck out like a maggot on a piece of beef.

He reports hearing the predominant majority there addressing each other as N_gger at least a dozen times a day.

It’s all good. I hope they keep it up as it’s the only way the typical, brain-dead, MTV, TMZ, Entertainment Channel viewer pop culture-zombie voter is going to be exposed to it enough to get sick of it the same as those of use who read it nearly everyday in the political news.

Ken Burns could not work anywhere other than a government supported gig or perhaps for AARP. Ken's talent is pocket pool.

You want to label me a racist? Fine.

My race is the Human race, and AFAIC socialists aren’t part of it.

Whether socialists are subhuman may be a matter for debate, but the fact that they are anti-human is proved beyond question.

Can’t wait for the sound of breaking glass when all the good Germans, AKA Liberals, start painting “Tea” on the front windows of American Businesses that display the American Flag.

Ken Burns is just another effeminate Liberal male who would have been slapped to ground if he dared to make that comment in public back in my day. Maybe Ken is upset that his little buddy Bob Costas was getting too much attention.

Any red blooded American Male who pulled the handle for Obama should be physically castrated since they are already mentally castrated...

Everybody knows that Ken Burns is a pedophile

Of course, this wouldn't make him the first of the pedophiles on the payroll at National Public Television.
