    No, your response mentioned "all" not "represents the whole group". I even quoted you.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    My post was in response to the photos you posted trying to paint all tea party members as racist with a few photos of alledged tea party members holding up racist signs.

    Then why use four photos of alleged tea party members holding racists signs as evidence that the tea party is racist to counter my claim that there was no evidence? I realize that every group has its loonies and nuts, but I am not going to use a few photo to act as though the group itself is like those loonies and nuts.

    To show that the Party as a whole does not reject the racists. The racist teabaggers have even formed their own tea tantrum organizations with many supporters who are tea baggers.

    And I only posted a limited # of photos because DP limits the # of photos one can put in a post. There are plenty more

    When you go around calling the tea party members racist and teabaggers and try to use a handful of photos to paint that group as racist you lose any credibility.

    And I only posted a limited # of photos because DP limits the # of photos one can put in a post. There are plenty more
    There is a five photo limit per post and as far as I know you can post unlimited number of links.

    I don't hate Tea Partiers. I hate racists, bigots, and @$$holes and hypocrites. I also hate those who willfully harm others. If Bernie Sanders said that gays were subhuman, I'd hate him too. It is our actions, which include the statements we make, not our affiliation, that determines who we are. You have shown your true colors. I'm disappointed in you.

    you're not wrong ........ but then by the same token .... I haven't seen too many Democrats running...... that are in favor of less spending ... smaller more efficient government, and less government intervention ...... have you ??
