To Spit or Not to Spit, That is the Question

The Lie:

Hat tip: bravenewfoundation

“Tell the GOP: Apologize for your hate-spewing proxies in the Tea Party Patriots. It is not acceptable for you to build your party’s political fortunes by encouraging and defending bigotry and hatred among your supporters…Another spat on Congressman Emanuel Cleaver, also an African-American.”

The Truth:

24th State: “Video proof at 1:25.  Cleaver is being shouted at by a man who is cupping his hands to shout above the noise. It’s not spitting, despite what some radio station caller claims.  It’s an unfortunate affect of yelling.” Read more…

    Seems to me showing one video that shows a man not being spat at is really poor evidence that no one spat at him. I have lots of footage of Kennedy not being shot, so I guess he is alive. Is this the usual evidence that Missouri Political New Service uses for its stories?

    After all the video and audio has been reviewed they cannot find anything. Those of us in the KC area knows Emmanuel Cleaver and that he is a racist and one who will lie to improve his position. So, Mark, until you can come up with something, your point is idiotic. Using the logic you use, since I haven’t seen your brain, then I can assume you don’t have one. Try thinking and using truth and facts before you blog. You will save yourself some embarrassment.
