Conservative blogger Jason Mattera posted a video to YouTube that has gotten attention today. It is from an encounter he had with comedian Chris Rock on January 23, 2012.

Chris Rock was throwing an after-party at the Sundance Film Festival. Mattera approached him and said he was a fan from Brooklyn. He then asked for a picture with the celebrity. Rock turned around for the picture and saw that there was a video camera pointed at him. Mattera then started asking Rock about statements that he had made about the Tea Party. Rock immediately walked away. Mattera followed and Rock ran out of room to walk away. He then turned and grabbed the video camera and threw it.

Mattera took the video in January, but posted it last week as a way to promote his book “Hollywood Hypocrites”.

A visit to Mattera’s website for further investigation returned a “503 Service Temporarily Unavailable” error.

Some websites are claiming Mattera himself was attacked by Chris Rock. But, Mattera’s own YouTube channel says it was the camera held by someone else that was thrown, and never says he was personally attacked. Mattera says Rock challenged him to a fight, though that is not shown in the video.

    That’s what happens when you try to practice “gotcha” journalism… and I used the term “journalism” very loosely.

    Looks like part of it’s missing – watch it carefully. What was removed before posting?

    Asia for Asians, Africa for Africans, White countries for everyone????????

    Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACEproblem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY whitecountry and ONLY into White countries.

    The Netherlands and Belgium are more crowded than Japan or Taiwan,but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringingin millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.

    Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERYwhite country and ONLY White countries to “assimilate,” i.e.,intermarry, with all those non-Whites.

    What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problemwould be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were broughtinto EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?

    How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACEproblem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?

    And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?

    But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program ofgenocide against my race, the White race, Liberals and respectableconservatives will just say that I’m a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

    They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-White.

    Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.

      Where we’re you when European countries were invading every country in the world stealing all of the natural resources raping, robbing, murdering and enslaving the inhabitants?

      @White Dude

      Last time i checked America was not a white country. I know you hate hearing the truth but Native Americans were here first, the whites came gave them diseases, lied to them to trick them out of their lands, and then took over the country. Then you enslave African and brought them here and now that you cant exploit them anymore you want them to go back. Ever since the beginning of time “White Countries” have lied, cheated, enslave, and killed anyone else that doesn’t agree with their ideas, ways of life or hey just has nice real estate and lots of money. But they had good reasons right?…Because they are better right?…Who’s to say but God! Now back to racism in this self proclaimed “white country” you speak of. I will not say that there is not reverse racism in America if going by definition but honestly someone feeling held back because of it is just ridiculous. For reverse racism to really affect people, such persons using it must actually have the power to affect or change the life or chances of the recipient of the racism. As far as I know blacks do not hold enough high positions anywhere, except the NAACP, to actually affect anyone and especially anyone drastically. Sending white people to black countries will not help, it will only infuriate the nation. Besides, Americans don’t take downgrades in living conditions well, especially “White Countrymen”.

    he tried to walk away from the man, but for what ever reason wanted to be persistent and continue to hound the man about what he said. he walked away so what was the reason to follow him.

  • benjamin

    Chris Rock isn’t a politician, so why use an ordinary citizen, put him in an uncomfortable situation by lying & saying you’re a fan & want a pic, to compare a liberal to the tea party? Getting pissed off isn’t bound by party affiliation. There are racists in every party, every race, but the yea party senna to be a concentration of racism. Get treated like you’re lesser than a white man 5 times a week, you’ll have reservations too!

  • benjamin

    Typo, *but the tea part seems to be a concentration* (Swype keyboard & auto correct)

  • Stevie

    He might be violent, but it doesn’t take away from racism that the tea party and republicans have displayed. Tea Party members and republicans are blind to their racist ways!

  • trutt speaer

    Chris rock know the filthy cracker is no good,thats why he did that.It wasnt about liberal or conservative.It was him disrespecting the racist tea party

  • Andre Wright

    Its not about Republican or Liberals, its about the racist tea party. They all are trash.

  • Policy maker

    Wow. Just another stupid non issue.

  • Jane Doe

    You guys can bash chris rock all you want and call it anti white. That’s fine becuz we are. Third world countries should be able to mill in to white countries because white countries have done for centuries. If it its black, they say its wack but then steal our ways behind our backs. Corny.

  • Reality

    In your OPINION, the Tea Party is ”racist,” but you only say that because it is mostly White.

    Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.

  • lucifer

    I hope the TP die off and QUICK!
