Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) rips ‘teabagger protesters’ for calling gay congressman ‘faggot’, black congressman ‘nigger’, and spitting on another

One hell of a statement from Rep. Tim Ryan about the Teabagger protesters in Washington on Saturday calling gay congressman Barney Frank a “faggot” (the crowd of teabagger onlookers reportedly laughed), called African-American congressman, and civil rights hero, John Lewis a “nigger,” and then spitting on a second black congressman, Emanuel Cleaver.
