Here we are two years later and the shoe is on the other foot. In audio that was brought to wider attention by Naked Emperor News, Rep. Carson accuses Tea Party members of Congress of wanting to see blacks “hanging on a tree.” There’s no need to hear any phantom words this time. The race-baiting is as plain as it could be.
Rep. Carson’s spokesperson has confirmed the words were his so there’s no question about the words. Will anyone at the NY Times condemn his language? As I noted yesterday, this is the second time Rep. Carson has gotten into a racial flap involving the Tea Party, the first being his accusation that protesters had hurled the N-word “15 times” as he walked among them. That story was never confirmed.
