About Alleged Violent/Racial Incidents At The Weekend Capitol Rallies

Much has been made of the allegations by a black Democratic Congressman that a protester against the health care bill, in the crowd along the entry way for members of Congress over the weekend, during the rally in the Upper Senate Park, spit on him and yelled a racial insult.

To date, nobody has corroborated this account. There is no video, no witness came forward, and no arrests were made.

I can vouch for the relative calm of the actual, sanctioned rally on the other side of the Capitol on Saturday. There was no organized rally outside the Capitol on Sunday, the day of the alleged incident.

However, a viewer of Bill O'Reilly's Fox News program wrote in with a reminder of a common Alinsky/"Chicago Way" tactic.

That is, to plant a heckler amidst crowds of your opponents at one of their rallies. Then have your shill do something disgusting/inappropriate/illegal. This way, your opposition is blamed for going too far and behaving badly.

Sounds like typical Wonderboy tactics. Perhaps Rahm Emanuel personally recruited the plant. Then, again, perhaps he used a cutout, to assure plausible deniability.

Seriously, it is believable that an administration full of Chicago politicians would naturally think of this tactic. It resulted in all manner of negative coverage for the anti-bill groups on the liberal broadcast media and the Communist News Network, too.
