Pat Buchanan's Researcher Karate Chopped A Woman And Called Her The N-Word

Marcus Epstein

From "Media Matters":

"In the acknowledgements page of his forthcoming book, MSNBC analyst Pat Buchanan gives "special thanks to Marcus Epstein for the invaluable assistance and untold hours he devoted to researching ideas, issues, and anecdotes." Epstein, a writer and activist with a history of inflammatory statements about race and immigration, was previously arrested for attacking a woman with a "karate chop" and calling her the n-word.
In July of 2007, according to a factual proffer by the U.S. Attorney, Epstein "was walking down the street making offensive remarks when he encountered the complainant, Ms. [REDACTED], who is African-American. The defendant uttered, 'Nigger,' as he delivered a karate chop to Ms. [REDACTED]'s head. Ultimately, the defendant was stopped and arrested by Secret Service officers."

Look, if it's not posters of Obama as a witch doctor or worse, the far right just can't distance itself from it's neo-confederate racist beliefs.

There are so many things wrong with this story. Who was the fellow making the remarks to as he walked down the street? Why did the Secret Service get involved? What if anything did the woman do to provoke the "karate chop"? Was she actually being a nigger at the time? Some people do, you know.

What's the source of the story? "It makes me feel good" is NOT a source.
