Cynthia McKinney and Supporters take off their masks

....and show their true faces!

There has been hints, small glimses of Cynthia Mckinney and her supporters, and what they are like, but now with the her loss, she and her supporters whip off the masks and show their true hate-filled faces.

Cynthia McKinney's entourage (handlers) wearing patches that said "New Black Panther Party Freedom or Death", had words for the media and got into scuffles with reporters as they covered the events.

During her concession speech, McKinney said her mother was hurt and one of her staffers required stitches after members of the media hurt them during the night. Police were eventually called to the scene by 11Alive News.

As McKinney walked outside her campaign headquarters after losing her reelection bid to Hank Johnson, a boom microphone carried by a photographer struck members of McKinney's entourage. In the confusion, McKinney staffers struck an 11Alive photographer and knocked his camera equipment to the ground.

A short time later, the 11Alive news desk called 9-1-1 after some people followed an 11Alive staff member into the station's satellite truck outside the McKinney headquarters.

Earlier Tuesday, a McKinney staffer scuffled with another 11Alive photojournalist, who videotaped as McKinney supporters waved some signs while the Congresswoman remained in her vehicle.

McKinney's staffers asked photographers to keep their distance -- which they did -- until McKinney rolled down her window and motioned to a reporter. The photographers approached, thinking she was about to give an on-camera interview. At that point, a staffer again got between the vehicle and blocked the 11Alive photographer, grabbing her by the wrist.

"That's right, and I'll touch you again, if you do it again," the staffer told 11Alive.

McKinney campaign chief John Evans vowed to investigate the earlier incident.

Such a classy woman.
Does she not even have any control over her staff or her suporters?
She sits back and watches it happen from her car?

Meanwhile, President and General Manager Bob Walker for WXIA has issued a statement on the review of the actions of the reporter:

11Alive Statement on McKinney Incident

"We are aware of the incident involving a member of Congresswoman McKinney’s staff and a photojournalist from our staff.

Based on our review, we are confident our people acted in a professional and appropriate manner."

Bob Walker
President and General Manager


Police investigating incident, no charges have yet to be filed:

DeKalb County police are investigating a scuffle between one of Cynthia McKinney’s security guards and an 11Alive photojournalist. At this point, no charges have been filed, but the incident was caught on video tape.

The scuffle happened as McKinney arrived at her campaign headquarters on Tuesday night.

11Alive News photojournalist Gary Stillwell was one of several trying to get video of McKinney as she entered the building.

According to the police report, security guard Steve Muhammad claimed he was assaulted by Stillwell, but the police officer writes that after reviewing a video tape of the incident, he determined that one of the security guards pushed and punched Stillwell.

Muhammad is the same man who had a confrontation with 11Alive photojournalist Kathy Bourn hours earlier.

11Alive News tried, but could not reach Muhammad for comment.


McKinney herself had complained about the actions of a male Capitol Police officer during an altercation at a checkpoint earlier this year.

This was a case of a male staffer touching a female photographer. Bourn said no blows were thrown, but her wrist was grabbed and there was some bumping.

Where is your outrage for the actions of your staff Cynthia?
Is the female reporter not as important as you are, so it doesn't matter?
Is this the true face of Cynthia McKinney and her supporters?

You would think the above is the worst of it....

It wasn't.

Racist and Anti-semitic remarks fly from the Cynthia McKinney party....

First there was a scuffle between McKinney's bodyguards and an 11Alive news photographer, then there were remarks made to a cable network news crew, in which members of McKinney's entourage allegedly made shocking anti-Semitic remarks.

The Anti-Defamation League says they want to hear from McKinney and they want her to disavow the anti-Semitic remarks reported by the network crew, remarks that recall the scandal that cost her the election in 2002.

"We're seeing some Cynthia McKinney supporters are resorting to anti-Semitic and racist language and again blaming the Jews for her loss in this campaign," said ADL southeast Associate Director Shelley Rose.

The remarks were allegedly made just moments after McKinney's entourage passed out of earshot of 11Alive cameras, as the congresswoman left her campaign headquarters on Tuesday night.

Someone reportedly said quote, "You wanna know what led to the loss? Israel. The Zionists. You. put on your yarmulke and celebrate."

...and these ain't no Lebanese people that's fi'in to back all up. Y'all gonna get your Jewish asses beat!"

Rose said, "We're really astonished that in 2006, anti-Semitism once again rears its ugly head."

The ADL lists the New Black Panther Party as a hate group, and questioned their affiliation with the McKinney campaign as well.

"We're really concerned that she continues to include the New Black Panther Party in her entourage, because we see them as one of the largest anti-Semitic and racist black hate groups in America today," said Rose.


Are we really that surprised though?
The Majority of Cynthia McKinney's contributions have been linked to Muslim donors.
Anti-Semiticism is rampant amongst Muslims, many believing that Israel should be destroyed.


And before people start jumping about it was just her staff and not her, you tend to surround yourself with like thinkers, especially politicans and we have seen Cynthia McKinney play the race card plenty of times, but it is astonishing that her sdtaff and supporters could be so racist and anti-semitic.

If this was a white person, a white congressman, and this happened, there would be screaming to high heaven to denounce him and his supporters, the Black Caucus would be involved, ACLU, CAIR, ect.

There would be calls that this is hate speech, ect.

Where are these same people now? Anyone?
