Anti-health care teabaggers show true colors call Rep. John Lewis a "N*gg*r" & Rep. Barney Frank a "F*gg*t"

In case you had any doubt that the Teabaggers were nothing but a bunch of hateful intolerant bigots check out two reports today from their "kill the bill" action on Capitol Hill today:

From The Hill:

-snip-
Rep. Andre Carson (D-Ind.) claimed Saturday that healthcare protesters at the Capitol directed racial epithets at Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) as he walked outside.

Carson, a member of the Congressional Black Caucus along with Lewis, told The Hill that protesters called Lewis the N-word.
Tea Party protesters held a rally outside the Capitol on Saturday, which included speeches by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) and actor Jon Voight, and then proceeded into the halls to lobby members at the 11th hour.
-snip-

From Talking Points Memo:

-snip-
Not long before, Rep. Barney Frank got an uglier version of the treatment. Just after Frank rounded a corner to leave the building, an older protestor yelled "Barney, you faggot." The surrounding crowd of protestors then erupted in laughter.
-snip-

I would hope that Rep. Michelle Bachmann and other Republicans who welcomed the Teabaggers to the Hill condemn these actions immediately and send their apologies to Representatives Lewis and Frank.
