You really must step out of your comfort zone, visit media that doesn't reinforce your point of view. You might learn something.
1. You two are saying the same thing that many said by others on other forums. Was that part of the talking points you all got from FOX? " (Insert number here) of posters out of (insert made up number here, make it larger every time), does not mean this was anti-Obama". Repeat until you believe it yourself.

2. I would suggest some of the righties taking their own advice about getting out of their comfort zones. (Such psychobabble from a conservative, lol!)

Yikes that is what passes for argument? You couldn't have said liar liar pants on fire? Do you have any response to the substance?

There is a link disproving your thesis yet you still insist it is not true. Strange.

What link are you talking about? I'm just reporting what I'm seeing on the various threads. Some joker on a state thread said give an example of racism at the rallies; I posted some pictures and I got a response similar to BigJon's. It made me wonder if this wasn't a talking point from the community organizer, FOX News.

You are all over the place, my response was to someone talking about hateful signs I gave them the benefit of the doubt by saying maybe 10's, I doubt that many honestly. People on the left and right view discussion that disagrees with them as hate speech. They tend to have a very low threshhold when they are the object of the speech but not so much when their side is doing the talking. Do you get so worked up about hateful signs at Code Pink rallys (I don't because this type of thing undermines the cause)?

Tell me what you think of this? Nothing close to this vile stuff at the Tea Parties.

Now you are throwing in racism I saw no evidence of it. Please tell me what signs were racist and hateful.

I probably was that joker by the way, beacause I haven't seen any racism. Go look. Yeah I am part of a vast right wing conspiracy!

No, it wasn't you. I just wanted to protect their privacy a little, since they're not on this thread. I will quote two posts you will have to click on, b/c I can't get the pictures to copy. They are evidence of racsim.
