Did he or didn't he? AFL-CIO boss claims he 'witnessed' Tea Party racism

There’s making an argument, then there’s making stuff up.

A couple of weeks ago, Andrew Breitbart offered a $100,000 reward to anyone who could provide evidence that the “n” word was shouted by a Tea Party protester at the health care protest in Washington.  So far, the Left has not provided any evidence and Breitbart has kept his money.

On Thursday, AFL-CIO top boss Richard Trumka gave a speech at Harvard excoriating the evils of capitalism and, by inference, castigating tea partiers.

Our politics have been dominated by greed and the forces of money for a generation. Now, amid the wreckage that came from that experiment, we hear the voices of hatred, of racism and homophobia.

Interestingly, Andrew Breitbart happened to be in the audience and, during a question and answer period challenged Trumka:

So, Richard Trumka was at the Tea Party protest in DC?

And, he was close enough to “witness” (hear) the alleged hate of the tea partiers using the ‘n’ word?

How is it that no one noticed him?

How is it he has no evidence?

[If Mr. Trumka was truly there, surely it would give him great pleasure taking Breitbart’s money.]

Perhaps he’s thinking of the wrong rally where the ‘n’ word was actually used?

Sorry, Mr. Trumka, we’re going to have to call ‘bull sh*t’ on this one.
