The Morning After: Tea Party’s Spitting, Racial Epithets, Gay Slurs Linger

March 21, 2010

(ChattahBox)— On Saturday, a group of unhinged tea party protesters menaced and harassed three Black Democratic lawmakers, including Rep. John Lewis (D-GA), a hero of the civil rights movement, hurling the N-word at them as they walked to the Capitol to hear President Obama’s final speech on healthcare reform. One black lawmaker was spat upon. Inside the Longworth House office building, teapartiers shouted the homophobic slur “faggot” and “homo” to Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA), as the group laughed. As the unruly tea party mob moved through the office building they banged on the office doors of Democratic lawmakers. When Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA) tried to enter an elevator, the tea party mob surrounded the lawmaker shouting “crook” and “liar.”

Several Republican lawmakers, when asked about the shocking racism on Sunday, including Rep. Mike Pence (IN) and House Minority Leader John Boehner (OH) condemned the teapartier’s actions, but not Rep. Devin Nunes (CA). He condoned their right to “smear” Democratic lawmakers, because of the Democrats’ “crazy totalitarian tactics.”

According to the account given by the Huffington Post:

“A staffer for Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.) told reporters that Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO) had been spat on by a protester. Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.), a hero of the civil rights movement was called a ‘ni–er.’ And Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mo.) was called a “faggot,” as protesters shouted at him with deliberately lisp-y screams. Frank, approached in the halls after the president’s speech, shrugged off the incident.”

The Talking Points Memo also reported on the mob bigotry:

“Civil rights hero Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) and fellow Congressional Black Caucus member Andre Carson (D-IN) related a particularly jarring encounter with a large crowd of protesters screaming “kill the bill”… and punctuating their chants with the word “nigger.” Standing next to Lewis, emerging from a Democratic caucus meeting with President Obama, Carson said people in the crowd yelled, “kill the bill and then the N-word” several times, while he and Lewis were exiting the Canon House office building.”

As Rep. Frank attempted to exit the Longworth building “an elderly white man screamed “Barney, you faggot”–a line that caused dozens of his confederates to erupt in laughter.”

Roll Call quoted from Rep. Carson who walked alongside Rep. Lewis, as enraged teapartiers shouted the N-word multiple times. ‘“They were shouting the N-word,” Carson said. “It was like a page out of a time machine.” Carson said Capitol Police surrounded the group and escorted them across the street to the Capitol.”

The reactions from the harassed Democratic lawmakers acknowledged that Republican leadership was partly responsible for whipping the teapartiers into a frenzied mob with falsehoods and fearmongering:

“I’m disappointed at a unwillingness to be just civil,” Frank said. “[T]he objection to the health care bill has become a proxy for other sentiments.” “I do think the leaders of the movement, and this was true of some of the Republicans last year, that they think they are benefiting from this rancor. I mean there are a couple who–you know, Michele Bachmann’s rhetoric is inflammatory as well as wholly baseless. And I think there are people there, a few that encourage it,” added Frank. “If this was my cause, and I saw this angry group yelling and shouting and being so abusive to people, I would ask them to please stop it,” Frank concluded. “I think they do more harm than good.”

House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) told reporters that the abusive behavior and racial slurs reminded him of the civil rights demonstrations in the 60s. “I heard people saying things that I have not heard since March 15, 1960 when I was marching to try and get off the back of the bus,” he said.

Clyburn went on to add that when power is taken away from the powerful to help the helpless, there is always strong opposition:

“A lot of us have been saying for a long time that much of this, much of this is not about health care at all. And I think a lot of those people today demonstrated that this is not about health care… it is about trying to extend a basic fundamental right to people who are less powerful.”

“People have been just downright mean,” said Rep. Lewis who was nearly beaten to death during a 1965 march.

Rep. Cleaver’s office issued a statement last night addressing the incident, in which a teapartier spat at him:

“For many of the members of the CBC [Congressional Black Caucus], like John Lewis and Emanuel Cleaver who worked in the civil rights movement, and for Mr. Frank who has struggled in the cause of equality, this is not the first time they have been spit on during turbulent times.” […] “This is not the first time the Congressman has been called the “n” word and certainly not the worst assault he has endured in his years fighting for equal rights for all Americans. That being said, he is disappointed that in the 21st century our national discourse has devolved to the point of name calling and spitting. He looks forward to taking a historic vote on health care reform legislation tomorrow, for the residents of the Fifth District of Missouri and for all Americans. He believes deeply that tomorrow’s vote is, in fact, a vote for equality and to secure health care as a right for all. Our nation has a history of struggling each time we expand rights. Today’s protests are no different, but the Congressman believes this is worth fighting for.”

Like the morning after a drunken rowdy night of mayhem, the violent, inflammatory and derogatory behavior toward African-American U.S. Congressmen and an openly gay lawmaker, will linger long after the tea party protesters finally pack up and go home.

(Update: Right-wing lawmaker Rep. Steve King (R-IA) refused to condemn the teapartier’s behavior. “I just don’t think it’s anything,” King said. “To focus on a few incidents is “embellishing something that is determined to undermine the people.”

King, along with Reps. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) and Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) helped whip the tea party crowd into a blind frenzy on Saturday. Gohmert told the crowd to “remember the Alamo” and that the only difference between that fight and the health care fight is that “if we lose this battle millions of Americans are going to die.”

    Careful what you say, DocChuck, or Colonel Kenneth Wayne Treuter, Esq., Notary Public extraordinaire, will send a “Process Server” knocking on your door.

    You have already been warned TWICE, DocChuck, but YOU are slow on the take-up, you muslim-loving pinko.

    It is characters like Kenneth Wayne Treuter (KWT) of McKinney, Texas, that give the TEA Party a bad name and cause many educated people to look upon the movement with disdain even though they may have sympathy for the group’s goals and intentions.

    Kenneth Wayne Treuter has never been able to hold a job in his entire life. He was terminated from many ‘jobs’, including those as a janitor at a discount store, as a security camera monitor, as a shoe salesman, as a preacher in a Texas church (where he was unceremoniously booted), and as a paralegal at Dallas-based Baron & Budd. Photos are available of KWT running around Dallas costumed as a ‘blood-covered’ Osama bin Laden which led many to question his sanity.

    Always visualizing himself as a James Bond-type (there are photos available of he and his former female ‘partner’, brandishing big guns (007-style) and displaying a leashed ferret – the mascot of their Ferret Detective Agency. Although married to one Maria Borgus Treuter (an immigrant from mexico), he impregnated his former female partner, then REFUSED to contribute to the pregnancy expenses or the support of the love-child. As a result, his girlfriend, who eventually fled to Arkansas, SHOT Kenneth in the gut (and many say that he is ‘gutless’ – LOL). The ferret has not been seen since.

    KWT reportedly contacted his brother who resided in Arkansas to seek out his former girlfriend and “ … deal with her.” Of course, his brother, having been formally educated, refused to have anything to do with that sordid affair or with KWT.

    After KWT was stripped of his private investigator license by the State of Texas, Treuter landed a $16.00 per hour job with Dallas-based Baron & Budd and was involved with soliciting plaintiffs and witnesses who could support claims by Baron & Budd plaintiffs that they were exposed to asbestos products at various workplaces from the early 1940s until the late 1960s.

    KWT admitted to the Dallas Observer newspaper that he KNEW what he was doing was fraudulent but says he used his “good ol’ boy nature” to work his subject with stories of corporate malfeasance or whip up sympathy for victims of asbestos disease. He said that he would evangelize. The whole sordid episode can be read on

    Finally, KWT became a COLONEL (no one is quite certain how he accomplished this) because he never attained any formal education, military service, or anything else that can be ascertained. But as a COLONEL, he started up a business called “On-Point Legal Support Services” where his most outstanding credential is that he is a Notary Public (a ‘title’ that he flaunts).

    After attaining the rank of COLONEL, Kenneth Wayne Treuter was self-designated “Esquire” – a title of respect for a member of the English gentry ranking just below a knight; placed after his name. KWT, who couldn’t find England on a map now considers himself English gentry (his parents were from German stock). This guy is PLAINLY unbalanced, mentally. AND, he is Colonel Kenneth Wayne Treuter, Esq.

    KWT loves to file lawsuits, threaten to file lawsuits, and look for possible lawsuits. He fancies himself as a lawyer although be barely made it out of high school. Indeed he sued Kaufman County, Texas, where he lives, for a number of trumped up, obviously bogus claims. His lawsuit was thrown out by the circuit judge.

    KWT now lives in the Texas woods in a compound-like structure (photos on Google maps) and bills himself as a TEA Party leader and a spokesman for the Patriotic Resistance where he has a page on and continues to spout his insanity. He spends an inordinate amount of time “reporting” people to the Department of Homeland Security.

    The TEA Party does NOT need characters such as Kenneth Wayne Treuter representing the organization. No intelligent, educated person is ever going to believe ANYTHING that KWT spouts.

    Now residing with David Wyers in Atlanta, Georgia

    […] I am also known as “FRED”, as “DocChuck”, as “MrsDocChuck” and as, well maybe 40 or 50 handles — LOL. […]

    The above should speak volumes about Charles’ obvious psychosis and if not then the following certainly does:

    From: Daddy Warbucks [edited]

    […] Let me tell you what YOU ARE: you are an uneducated, unemployed, lazy, loser who married a mexican whore with an illegitimate kid because that was the ONLY pussy you could get — LOL! […]

    I think I may have a bit of fun with your ‘website’ on the internet. And, THEN, I am going to have some fun with you and the mexican in court.


    PS: Oh yeah, give your queer brother, Douglas, my best wishes, along with his ignorant son who flunked out of college (couldn’t handle that complicated ALGEBRA, I suppose).

    Stay tuned, Kenneth W Treuter and mexican wife and half-breed kids.

    “[…]You married a mexican whore because no white woman would want anything to do with your loser ass.

    Did I ever tell you what REALLY pissed me off about Mother Treuter? It was the day that she and your mexican wife invited themselves to visit MY home. Then YOUR wife sat on MY sofa and started spouting off all of that jesus-hugging, superstitious, uneducated, bullshit religious nonsense.

    When I told Mother Treuter that I did NOT care to hear it (after all, I am an EDUCATED person – Mother Treuter paid for my Master’s and my Doctoral degrees), she got REALLY pissed off.

    Then there was the time that Mother Treuter brought your mexican wife’s illegitimate kid to MY home (even though Mother Treuter paid for my home there on Twilight Moon Drive – it did NOT give her the right to bring mexicans into my house!).

    Now, maybe you can understand why I had to “hightail it out of Houston” and get away from your mexican wife and kids. Do you know what I mean, Kenneth?

    Did you know that Mother Treuter bought a video camera just so I could make her a video of my wife’s graduation at the University of Houston (Mother Treuter paid for most of Elizabeth’s college expenses, for your information)? She then asked me to buy another camera for YOU for a birthday gift or some such shit.

    You may remember that our late Father used to say to me, “Son, we need to employ all the hounds in Texas to keep the mexicans in mexico.” Yes, our Father (from pure German roots) was genuinely concerned about mexicans invading Texas and polluting his bloodline.

    before leaving Houston, Texas, (because I simply could NOT live around fuckingniggers and filthy mexicans you understand). […}

    Your loving Brother,
    Dr. Charles R. Treuter

    That’s the insane DocChuck/Charles R. Treuter [edited] [LOL], Elizabeth Ann [Jarvis] Treuter claiming to make over $400,000 per year – wonder if the IRS knows about that income [hmmm] and if the state of Maryland knows that tax payers are paying for her nursing services in their correctional institutes while she is married to such a racist nut job [hmmm] ) I’ve known for many, many years.

    I reside in the rural area of Collin County, Texas and my email account is neither in the name of docwarbucks nor is it serviced by I do not reside at 5633 Columbia Rd. – Apt. #102 in Columbia, Maryland and I don’t have a zip code of 21044. Were anyone wanting to telephone me they couldn’t reach me at 14102454750, however, an inquiring mind would likely be able to easily figure out who does have such an email address, resides at said address and could be phoned at said phone number.

    Read all the sordid details at:

    Man, oh man, what a twisted and wicked web of deceit the “DocChuck”/Charles Richard Treuter began to weave (and has continued to do so, btw) when first he begun his practice to deceive. Damnation, is all I can say!
