Wow! just like that, fauxnews.com no longer allows its users to leave comments on any of their "news" articles. Why do you suppose that is?

I think it's the vile racial hatred that is spewed by the white winged nut jobs. Have any of you ever seen the stuff that people write? I can only imagine that it's like attending a KKK rally.

Meh, the NY Times disables comments for half of its stuff. You find idiotic comments posted on every single major news website as well as YouTube.

The idea that if you give a million monkeys a million typewriters they'll eventually write out the complete works of Shakespeare has been proven wrong by the Internet, they'll just type racist and idiotic stuff.

That's on almost every message board. Read the Chicago tribune websites comments or youtubes, doesn't matter the topic, the stormfront KKK types go into some racist rant about Blacks or Mexicans almost every time.

The story could be about real estate and these asshats will go into a long winded rant against some minority group.

I think the main reason they are deleting the comments is because they were getting liberal comments or dissent from the Paul faction.

Seen plenty of it on the Washington Post and CNN sites. It's subtle of course, things like "hmm I wonder what race the perps are!" but racism nonetheless.

They're probably switching to a facebook login commenting system like many sites are doing these days.

I wonder how the o.p. felt about Obama signing the Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011 which gives the secret service the right to suspend free speech, association and petition of the government within area of their choosing?
Something tells me those partisan blinders prevented any outrage.

"white winged"? I assume you're trying to say "right-wing". Learn to spell before you rant.
