This YouTube video unmasks Maxine Johnson, the woman given national prominence as a victim who had her poster ripped from her at the Claire McCaskill townhall, as a liar and a race baiter.
Maxine is seen in this CNN interview claiming that she saw someone at Hillsboro college with the sign, "N-word Obama." She doesn't say N-word, but goes for the whole enchilada at 4:05 in the recording.
Really? She really is going to say that? Hundreds of cameras and video recorders, and press everywhere dying to get a picture of the racist white hordes that all hate Obama and are paid by the insurance companies, and not one caught a picture of this racist sign?
Maxine Johnson is a liar and she's using her national attention to spread race-baiting words of nonsense on national television. The reporter said nothing. Then Maxine says at 4:34 in the video that an officer tells her that they can not guarantee her safety? Are you kidding me? A police officer tells Maxine Johnson that he can't guarantee her safety?
She's a fraud. She's a liar, and she and her friends brought in three signs. It wasn't just Rosa Parks. It was also Martin Luther King, and it was also....Barack Obama. Maxine and her friends brought in posters that included Obama. To claim that she was holding up a poster of Rosa Parks because she just got off Rosa Parks Highway is a crock. She was there for Obama, not to honor Parks.
As for police officers treating her different?
She marches in and the crowd boos the fact they have an Obama sign. The man comes to take it away after she sits down, and she jumps up to get her sign back. The two police officers that get there separate the two, and immediately the black woman starts struggling, while the white guy is calmly led away. As Maxine struggles, another police officer comes along and they quickly escort her outside, and then calmly take her statement. The crowd was cheering someone who was trying to make a sign getting escorted out.
No racism - just keeping the peace - the way they're supposed to. It's pretty simple. When you're spoiling a fight, you usually get one. The white guy shouldn't have taken her sign, but let's not pretend Maxine Johnson is some innocent victim. At this point, I'm not sure which person was less credible, Maxine for lying or the CNN talking head for not stopping and saying, "wait - what? You saw a racist Obama sign? And the police couldn't guarantee your safety?"
It would help race relations immensely if we could at least report the facts and shun liars.
Update: Mark Reardon questions her about the story of the sign with the n-word, and she "clarifies" it was her daughter that saw it, it was a small sign, letter size, posted to some person's shirt, so maybe that's why no one else saw it.
So let's stop for one second and think. Does anyone who isn't trying to create racial animosity believe that no one else at that townhall saw that shirt and said anything. I can tell you that I would have said something, because I would have immediately suspected a plant, as we saw in Detroit with the Obama with the Hitler mustache. And if someone had reported that to a police officer, the guy would have been rushed out, just so it couldn't be on the news and embarrass the college. The story stinks to high heaven, and unless they can show some proof, I'm going to have to go with the she's lying through her teeth, hoping to get notoriety after attempting to disrupt the townhall. There were a lot of video cameras around her afterwards. I have video, as do many others. When exactly did this officer say he couldn't guarantee her safety?
Note she wasn't removed from the auditorium for having a sign. She was removed when officers saw what could become a physical confrontation and acted to stop it.
