Will Media Report Racism and Anti-Semitism at Occupy Wall Street Protests?

Remember all that media talk about the Tea Party being a bunch of racists because a handful of tasteless signs appeared at rallies around the country?

Given that excessive, disproportionate outrage, the press should be truly disgusted by videos that have been taken of overt racism and anti-Semitism occurring at various Occupy Wall Street protests and associated jobs rallies from coast to coast (multi-clip video follows with commentary, extreme vulgarity warning):

In the first clip, an African-American man at Saturday's jobs rally in Washington, D.C., walked through the crowd with a "No Jobs! No Second Term Obama!" sign calling the president a "house n-gger" (h/t Weasel Zippers).

Imagine the outrage this would have caused if it happened at a Tea Party event.

In clip number two, an African-American woman at Wednesday's Occupy Los Angeles protest said, "I think that the Zionist Jews, who are running these big banks and our Federal Reserve, which is not run by the federal government... they need to be run out of this country" (h/t Weasel Zippers).

Zionist Jews running banks and the Federal Reserve need to be run out of this country.

Remember any Tea Partiers making such a disgraceful comment?

 


Or how about clip number three wherein a young man anti-Semitically abused an old Jewish man at the October 4 Occupy Wall Street rally?

Did you ever see anything like that at a Tea Party event?

Or what about clip number four wherein a black man racially abused a white, Ron Paul supporter at the September 17 Occupy Wall Street rally?

If any of these videos had been filmed at a Tea Party event, imagine for a moment how many times you would have seen these images on ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, NBC, and PBS.

Why are they less newsworthy when they happen at protests the media support?
