There was already an established precedent. From National File:

Capitol Hill Police Officer Claims, Without Evidence, That Crowd of Trump Supporters Repeatedly Called Him N****r On 1/6
Capitol Police Officer Harry Dunn told the January 6 Select Committee, without evidence, that a crowd of Trump supporters repeatedly called him a racial slur during the protests.

Dunn, a Capitol Police officer who is an admitted Democrat, spoke during the first hearing of the January 6 Select Committee on Tuesday, and described various scenes that strain credulity and supposedly occurred during the protests. Dunn said that he told many of them to leave the Capitol building, but in response they allegedly yelled, “no man, this is our house. President Trump invited us here. We’re here to stop the steal. Joe Biden is not the President. Nobody voted for Joe Biden.”

He then claimed that after he informed the protesters that he, in fact, voted for Biden, the revelation prompted a “torrent of racial epithets” being thrown from the crowd towards him. “One woman in a pink MAGA shirt yelled, ‘you hear that guys? This n****r voted for Joe Biden’,” he said. “Then the crowd, perhaps around 20 people, joined in screaming, ‘boo! F**king n*****r!’ No-one had ever, ever called me a n****r while wearing the uniform of a Capitol Police officer,” Dunn added.

EGAP = Everybody's Got A Phone
You would think that the liberal media would be frothing at the mouth to be able to air some footage of a Trump supporter calling a uniformed Capitol Police Officer the "N" word.  CNN would have paid $100K for that video file - just to reinforce their narrative. The person who recorded it would be able to write their own ticket - talk shows, maybe even a book deal. They would never have to worry about that student loan for their MA in Gender Studies.

Instead? Crickets.

And the precedent? From March of 2010

McClatchy:
Tea party protesters call Georgia's John Lewis 'nigger'
Demonstrators outside the U.S. Capitol, angry over the proposed health care bill, shouted "nigger" Saturday at U.S. Rep. John Lewis, a Georgia congressman and civil rights icon who was nearly beaten to death during an Alabama march in the 1960s.

Breitbart:
No More Beer Summits: Tea Party 'N-Word' Incident Didn't Happen, And the Congressional Black Caucus Owes America an Apology
Rep. Andre Carson wants to change the subject. I don’t blame him.

On April 13, 2010 he told AP reporter Jesse Washington, “I think we need to move toward a dialogue that explores why this kind of divisive and reprehensible language is still making it into our political debate.”

The “divisive and reprehensible language” that Rep. Carson is referring to is his claim that while he left the Cannon office building on March 20 with Rep. John Lewis, they were verbally assaulted by health care protesters hurling the “N-word” at them. He said the scene was so hostile he “expected rocks to come” when he was coming out of Cannon.

I wanted to see the evidence. I wanted the truth. In the course of our search we have actually uncovered further video evidence that casts serious doubt on Rep.Carson’s claims

And Andrew's offer:

When I offered a reward of $100,000 to be donated to the United Negro College Fund if anyone produced video and audio evidence that this occurred, I was accused of a publicity stunt (because everyone knows that the best way to get publicity in America is to accuse a civil rights icon of lying about racism). Rep. Carson himself suggested that my challenge was “a veiled attempt to justify actions that are simply unjustifiable.” Get it? He calls protesters racist and if you ask him to prove it, you’re a racist, too.

Needless to say, no one has claimed the $100,000.

Photographs of the event showed a lot of cell phones being held out to record the goings on.
Nobody claimed the $100,000 reward.

The internet is forever - the idiots who make these claims (and yes, they are idiots - they are simply not that intelligent) would have been wise to study where tactics like this have been successful and where they have failed.  Never go full retard.  You do not want to go full retard.
