Latino group pushes petition to end Tea Party hate-spewing
From Huffington Post:
During the health care debate on Saturday, Tea Party protesters hurled racist and homophobic epithets at House Democrats. Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.) was spat on by a protester, Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.), a civil rights icon, was called a ‘ni—er,’ and openly gay Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) was called a “fa—-t” and heckled with deliberately lisp-y screams.
On Wednesday, a Latino Facebook group called “Cuéntame” posted a video documenting the Tea Party hate-spewing, and asked viewers to sign an online petition to the leaders of the Republican party asking them to apologize for egging on abusive protesters.
The video shows Republican lawmakers waving signs from a balcony and applauding the crowd of Tea Party protesters as they shout racial and homophobic slurs.
