What I tell you three times is true: get a camera. Get a camera. GET A CAMERA:
For those without video, the above (courtesy of Andrew Breitbart) shows an alternate view of Rep. Andre Carson and Rep. John Lewis’ infamous walk out of the Cannon Building, on the day that the two Congressmen claimed to have been taunted with racial slurs. As Andrew put it:
Not only is the audio devoid of any racial slur, but the scene at Cannon clearly shows the congressmen coming down the steps completely unobstructed, and with a clear path to the Capitol. And, when we juxtapose the audio accusation Rep.Carson made moments after the alleged event occurred with actual video footage of the moment Rep. Carson claims he first heard the racial slur, it is as plain as day that Congressman Carson was not isolated by a mob and facing a racist throng that could conceivably hurl rocks at him. As you can see for yourself.
Bolding mine: yes, you can see for yourself. Why? Because people brought cameras*. Otherwise, this wouldn’t have gotten challenged, and the Democrats wouldn’t be trying to hide from this story right now. And no, this is not something that people should just move on from, either. We can move on after the Members of Congress involved either publicly retract their accusations, or else prove them.
*I really do like the Flip. It’s not even remotely difficult to operate, and it has a useful duration for this sort of thing.
