in this thread, we observe and enjoy the inevitable and embarrassing results of knee-jerk claims of 'racism.'

Well, you are correct on one count. It was not racist. Stupid....not so much. The owner was practicing his right to free speech. And as the owner of a gun shop in North Carolina, I can assure you his sales will be going through the roof. As an NC resident, I can tell you the only place you will be finding any SJW's is in the larger cities, like Raleigh and Charlotte. The rest of us see these four representatives for the bigots and racists that they actually are, and thus won't be put off by any social media outcry against this business or the owners. Furthermore, I congratulate this man/woman for having the guts to speak out in a very public way about "the squad" and their hateful/ridiculous rhetoric. The real idiots out there are the ones who embrace these representatives and their agendas, which are the antithesis of what our great country stands for.

Still, not racist. These group of idiots just happen to be "of color". Trump criticizes people who criticize him first, he doesn't hold back on whites, why should he do the same for others?

If you read the article, you will find that the gun shop owner is so happy with the results of the billboard, he is giving out free bumper stickers: https://scontent-sea1-1.xx.fbcdn.net...56&oe=5DA974E0

I agree. Not racist and probably a smart marketing move, assuming he knows his audience.

I guess racist is in the eye of the beholder. I just know that prior to Trump's rhetoric about these four women, they would not even have been on anyone's radar. I personally wish that these four women would never have given Trump the time of day. I hope that the Dems start ignoring him and his ignorance so that real issues can be addressed.

And yes, the owner is entitled to his free speech, I agree.
