If they have such a compelling argument, why do they need to resort to lies?

Well, if this is indeed a fake, I've yet to see the real deal.

I think it is fake.

No one in their right mind would hold a sign like that and if they are illegals (which is so wrong), they probably could not spell 'engish-words' that good to begin with.

Your link doesn't "prove" a damn thing, opinions of leftist wackjobs. Show me some actual proof, like maybe the "real" photo.

Did you read your link and the link contained within it? It doesn't prove anything and it clearly says so.

Error Level Analysis Results (http://errorlevelanalysis.com/permalink/c8761ab/ - broken link)

It is worth noting that edges and areas red in colour are often depicted as brighter in the ELA tests. This due to the way the photos are saved by various programs. It is not proof that image was manipulated.


If you are unsure how to interpret the results, please do not claim the results of this tool as proof of anything.
This is a great find by the way - thank you for posting it. On the other hand - it's OK if you don't understand what you are looking at or reading, just don't make wild claims based on your shaky comprehension.

Actually, according to the links, the black text on the top of the sign seems to pass this specific test looking for image manipulation.
("Give us FREE health care
Jobs - no taxes
House
Food
You Owe Us America")

(FWIW - I personally also suspect the photo is not exactly as it seems - but I have no proof either way and no one has yet posted credible proof to support or debunk.)

What makes you think the sign is fake? Is it too radical? Is it hard to believe that a Mexican illegal would use free speech? Is it hard to believe that any protestor would write something that would get media attention?

What if a teabagger had this sign? would you believe it then?

Your thread is a big troll

American flags upside down, some being stomped on? Waving Mexican flags? Ya, no way that could be real.
