Now ThinkProgress blogger Faiz Shakir notes that "[t]here is no evidence on the tape to suggest the racist man was a 'Dem shill'" before remarking
It’s one thing for conservative tea party activists to courageously confront their own racist sympathizers. That is to be respected. But it’s quite another for them to baselessly and shamefully smear “leftists” for being Nazi racist infiltrators.
I'm not sure what the weirdo racist in the video is. But the tea parties are having noted problems with loony-bin leftists trying to infiltrate and portray tea partiers to be more extreme than they are. So I've got a proposal: the Left should keep tabs on their own people by shaming and denouncing their own crazies like Jason Levin rather than flying off the handle at conservatives trying to police themselves. In return, conservatives can continue to courageously police themselves. Spend more time on your crazies and we'll spend more time on ours. Do we have a deal, lefties?
