    It's your stupid thread. Why don't you show that the utensils were taken away because they were Latinos, or that Obama had anything to do with the decision in the first place?

    Well, it's a pretty dumb article to begin with but you've certainly added enough of your own by a)blindly accepting the premise that the utensils were confiscated because they were Latino, b)blindly rejecting the source in your own article from the Secret Service that this was standard operating procedure, and c)flat out making up that Obama was responsible for the decision in the first place.

    Bonus dumb! After you made all those assumptions, demanding everybody else cite evidence for the opposite while citing none of your own (even though it's your thread).

    It's actually kind of nostalgic -- this thread is straight up, old school Stinger stuff.

    One wouldn’t think so, given the hundreds of lunches and dinners he’s attended ranging from state dinners to political fundraisers to run-of-the-mill stops on the rubber-chicken circuit.
    However, at one such lunch Friday afternoon, guests heard an unusual announcement that they needed to hand over their silverware for security reasons.

    Wow! How insulting....These people were not some mob off the street. Not the much demonized by liberal/Progressives TEA Party. No, these were Demo, delegates there to hear Obama speak, and have lunch. Apparently, the Secret Service feels that the greatest threat doesn't come from the political opposition to Obama, but from within....And they feel that a bad re-enactment of West Side Story is how it would go down....

    So now tell us again libs, how Obama is the hispanic choice?

    I'd like to see them try to take my forks away from me…

    Well, then aren't you glad that Obama's media friends broke the story? Ha, ha....Major fail.

    It probably wasn't reported before because it hasn't been news until President Obama has done it. For the right-wing nuts nothing is too trivial to be used against this black president.

    Obviously they can't make the connection, so it must be Obama's fault!

    (If you ask me, considering the nutty way that Florida has been acting, I'm not sure I blame the Secret Service for taking such precautions).

    Are these okay?



    And, "it's SOP" is always the Secret Services answer to the press. It may have simply been a case of a specific threat the SS heard muttered that day.

    Re: Secret Service Takes Forks Away From Latinos At Obama Event

    At my high school, they banned drinking straws because they said straws can used as a weapon. It was the dumbest crap I have ever head... a straw, really? It was high school, not prison... we were allowed forks though. They didn't nail our chairs to the floor.. lol. I could pick up a chair and use that as a weapon...
