Only… there’s more to the story.
Let’s first go to the video, brought to us by ThinkProgress:
Now, let’s go to Bob Owens’ unequivocal takedown of the fraud that this thing is:
There are four men quoted in the original 53-second video.
Activist 1 is being smeared as a racist by Think Progress, even though he was attending a tea party event with his black wife and bi-racial son. It takes a lot of nerve to edit a video so dishonestly that what remains is the opposite of what the speaker intended. Here is what Activist 1 actually said in the full video recording:
Barack Obama’s just a bad guy. That’s all I can say. He’s … he’s too black to be president. And you look at the color of my wife, it’s not the color of his skin that troubles me, it’s not the blackness of his skin that troubles me.
It’s the blackness inside … his heart. He’s a bad guy.
Think Progress takes an obviously not racist man and edits him into a villain.
Activist 2 is a favorite of Think Progress, and no wonder: he says exactly what they hoped to hear a tea partier say, exclaiming: “I’m a proud racist, I’m white.” Think Progress liked this clip so much they played it not once, but twice.
The problem is, Activist 2 isn’t a tea party protester. He is a tea party crasher.
You need to read the whole thing… then you need to pass this on.
The video is fraudulent, plain and simple… and somebody’s head needs to roll.
