Flashback 2010: Wasserman Schultz’s Vile Attack Against Allen West (Video)

Posted by FactReal on July 20, 2011

CONTEXT – WASSERMAN SCHULTZ vs. ALLEN WEST

October 22, 2010Rep. Wasserman Schultz claims candidate Allen West is anti-woman:
Democrat Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a sitting U.S. Congresswoman and vice chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, led a protest in front of the headquarters of Republican candidate Allen West, a Tea Party favorite, who was running against Democrat Ron Klein for Florida’s 22nd congressional district.

Wasserman Schultz accused Allen West of having degrading attitudes toward women and claimed Allen West “would take us backwards.”

Wasserman Schultz also peddled lies against Tea Partiers: When asked what is the difference between her protest and the Tea Party protest, the Democrat congresswoman said, “Our protest is different because I don’t see any swastikas or any pictures of the president in black-face or burned in effigy here,” implying that Tea Partiers are racists and extremists. (She probably was confusing the Tea Partiers with leftists calling for the death of President Bush.) She also said that one protester at a community meeting she hosted “shouted from the courtyard that I deserved breast cancer” because she supported the health care law.

As a typical leftist, Wasserman Schultz did not provide any evidence to substantiate her accusations.

Here is the video:

“It’s no secret that Ron [Klein]’s opponent, Allen West, is a self-described ‘right wing extremist.’ “In fact, he wears his extreme disrespect as a badge of honor. He thinks it’s OK to objectify and denigrate women. He thinks it’s OK to take away our reproductive freedom. He thinks it’s okay to associate with people who refer to women as ‘oral relief stations.’ Well, we’re here to tell him it is not okay.”

October 22, 2010
July 19, 2011Rep. Wasserman Schultz attacks Rep. West after he spoke during the debt debate:
(She attacked him by inference, but it is clear she is referring to Rep. West)

In her remarks on the House floor, Wasserman Schultz had said: “The gentleman from Florida, who represents thousands of Medicare beneficiaries, as do I, is supportive of this plan [“Cut, Cap and Balance” bill] that would increase costs for Medicare beneficiaries. Unbelievable from a member from south Florida.”

She was alluding to a GOP-backed bill to reduce the debt and amend the Constitution to require a balanced federal budget. The House later approved the bill 234-190, but it is unlikely to pass the Democratic Senate.

Here is the video of her speech.
But Wasserman Schultz lied:
The “Cut, Cap and Balance” bill makes no changes to Social Security or Medicare. Most of the cuts in the bill come from discretionary spending, anyway, but the bill specifies that the $35 billion cuts to mandatory spending would come from non-veterans, non-Social Security, non-Medicare spending.

(Caveat: According to Politico.com)
From: Z112 West, Allen
Sent: Tuesday, July 19, 2011 04:48 PM
To: Wasserman Schultz, Debbie
Cc: McCarthy, Kevin; Blyth, Jonathan; Pelosi, Nancy; Cantor, Eric
Subject: Unprofessional and Inappropriate Sophomoric Behavior from Wasserman-Schultz

Look, Debbie, I understand that after I departed the House floor you directed your floor speech comments directly towards me. Let me make myself perfectly clear, you want a personal fight, I am happy to oblige. You are the most vile, unprofessional, and despicable member of the US House of Representatives. If you have something to say to me, stop being a coward and say it to my face, otherwise, shut the heck up. Focus on your own congressional district!

I am bringing your actions today to our Majority Leader and Majority Whip and from this time forward, understand that I shall defend myself forthright against your heinous characterless behavior……which dates back to the disgusting protest you ordered at my campaign hqs, October 2010 in Deerfield Beach.

You have proven repeatedly that you are not a Lady, therefore, shall not be afforded due respect from me!

Steadfast and Loyal

Congressman Allen B West (R-FL)

OBAMA SAYS TEA PARTIERS ARE RACISTS…He Hasn’t Seen the Miami Tea Parties (Videos, Photos)

Posted by FactReal on March 3, 2011

THE LEFT’S OBSESSION WITH RACE
Obama said Tea Partiers are racists:

In May 2010, he [Obama] told guests at a private White House dinner that race was probably a key component in the rising opposition to his presidency from conservatives, especially right-wing activists in the anti-incumbent “Tea Party” movement that was then surging across the country…

A guest suggested that when Tea Party activists said they wanted to “take back” their country, their real motivation was to stir up anger and anxiety at having a black president, and Obama didn’t dispute the idea. He agreed that there was a “subterranean agenda” in the anti-Obama movement—a racially biased one—that was unfortunate. But he sadly conceded that there was little he could do about it.

Obama and other leftists conveniently ignore the Miami Tea Parties. In Miami, people from different background, race, nationality, and age have come together to protests against Obama’s failed policies. (BTW, it’s time leftists stop referring to Hispanics as ‘browns.’ Hispanics may be of any race or ethnic group, i.e., White, Black, Asian, Mestizos, etc. Being Hispanic means the person comes from a Spanish-speaking nation. It does not refer to race.)

Following are some Tea Party videos and photos. Note that those images were taken to record the protests and not to prove that Tea Parties are diverse.

SNL LIED…Rep. Michele Bachmann DID Look into the Right Camera…the Tea Party Camera for SOTU Response (Both Videos Here)

Posted by FactReal on February 1, 2011

THIS IS HOW THE LEFT CREATES MYTHS…to destroy Conservatives
On 1/25/2011, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN) gave a speech dubbed the Tea Party response to Obama’s 2010 State of the Union Address (SOTU). For a week liberals have been mocking Bachmann for not looking straight at the CNN camera while delivering her speech. This past Saturday, the clowns from NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” lampooned Bachmann, even though it has been proven that Bachmann was looking into to the Tea Party camera to address her Tea Party audience. According to CNN, Bachmann said that “about a month ago she was invited to speak to the membership of the Tea Party Express and never expected the media to carry her speech live.” (Hat tip: HotAirPundit)

Liberals manufacture these type of stupid controversies because they don’t want Americans to listen to the conservative message like Bachmann’s. We cannot allow liberals to continue re-writing the facts.

Compare the two videos:

TEA PARTY CAMERA
CNN CAMERA
SOURCES: Tea Party Express (Facebook) and SOURCE: CNN YouTube, CNN blog
Tea Party HD (YouTube)
WHAT HAPPENED?
Tony Loiacono, who directed and produced the Bachmann video explained to WAPO: “The problem? There were multiple cameras in the room, he says, and the congresswoman, a Minnesota Republican, was looking into the TeaPartyHD camera with the teleprompter. The networks provided their own cameras instead of plugging into his, which made her glance look askew.” (Hat tip: TeaPartyExpress)

Sweetness-Light found CNN’s explanation discreetly tucked away on their Political Ticker blog indicating there was NO Bachmann’s camera blunder: “Bachmann was actually addressing the camera of the Tea Party Express, the group that had invited the congresswoman to deliver a response to the State of the Union…Bachmann’s delivery was subsequently mocked by a number of left leaning commentators and no less than David Axelrod, a top adviser to President Barack Obama…”

Here is a screenshot of CNN’s blog post dated 1/26/2011:

DID CNN OR FOX NEWS SABOTAGE REP. BACHMANN’S SOTU RESPONSE?
Breitbart reports: “Our sources tell us that CNN had originally agreed to use the live feed set up by Tea Party Express, which had a teleprompter running on the lens in which Rep. Bachmann was delivering her speech. But, when Rep. Bachmann left the camera set-up and sat in the House chamber to hear Pres. Obama’s speech, CNN set up a camera of their own, just off to the side of the main, tele-prompter/camera. Thus, when CNN provided their network feed it ended up skewed and off-kilter.”

But was it CNN or Fox News? Sources tell Breitbart that “the pool camera providing the feed for CNN was Fox News.”

Prior to the SOTU response, FoxNews indicated they would share a camera: “[T]elevision news outlets have agreed to share a camera to record Bachmann’s comments — and some could choose to air them live.” CNN reported they would air Bachmann’s speech: “CNN plans to carry Bachmann’s remarks live after Rep Paul Ryan speaks.”

Days before the SOTU response, Fox News reported that two Tea Party sites would broadcast Bachmann’s response online: “A Tea Party organization points to an alternate rebuttal offered by Rep. Michele Bachmann…’Congresswoman Michele Bachmann has confirmed with us that she will broadcast her response to Barack Obama’s State Of The Union address this Tuesday,’ a post on the website said. ‘You’ll be able to watch her rebut Obama via her address which will be broadcast on our website TeaPartyExpress.org.’” Fox News also added, “Bachmann’s remarks will also be streamed live at http://www.TeaPartyHD.com shortly after the President concludes his speech and the Republican response airs.”

On 1/21/2011, the Daily Caller reported that Bachmann’s speech “will be broadcast online and sponsored by Tea Party Express, a California-based political action committee…” The Tea Party Express also indicated so in an e-mail to their supporters.

The blogger TheRightScoop posted the Tea Party video the next day after Bachmann’s speech. So, why didn’t the major networks use the correct video during their trashing analysis of Bachmann’s SOTU response.

LIBERALS DISREGARDED THE FACTS TO DESTROY REP. BACHMANN
- Meghan McCain: “Michelle Bachmann in my opinion is no better than a poor man’s Sarah Palin… This is one rogue woman who couldn’t even look into the camera directly.” (Video mark 0:52)
- MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow (Video mark 00:20)
- Obama’s senior adviser David Axelrod and MSNBC Laugh at Bachmann’s “Wrong-Camera” Speech
- DailyKos: “Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) gave the Tea Party rebuttal to President Obama’s State of the Union address last night…The overall response to her has been negative. Mainly because she spoke into the wrong camera and refused to honor Gabrielle Giffords. The result seems to be that she’s solidified the perception that the teabaggers are tone deaf and crazy.”
