    It is also interesting to see 'conservatives' think it is natural and logical to see the bad side of pride in Heritage. If the child had been wearing a Native American styled custom, or a redheaded girl in her Dublin best, would the first thought be massacres and IRA killings? There is an odd colony of German decent folks in Texas, one of the few south of the Mason-Dixon line, if the boy was dressed in lederhosen would the thought be about Nazis?

    fact is there are far more legal Hispanics in this country than illegals. Hispanic is the new W.O.P. and there is no ocean to help with ethnic based restrictions like the 1920's.

    Just saw the morning news, the boy sang at the ball game again last nite, got huge cheers. THAT is a good take-a-way form this.
    I will give you a prime example of the media bias and its selected outrage

    Bill Maher again calls Sarah Palin's son Trig who has down syndrome a retard, Did CNN run a story and call Maher out for doing so. Did they ostracize him for his vile remarks all for a cheap laugh at the expense of a child that has no voice of his own to defend himself, Does CNN not care about the bigoted attacks on the mentally disabled in this country.

    Maher has a show on HBO his vile attacks reach millions. A hell of alot more then those few nobodies on tweeter that CNN thought it was news worthy enough to run

    So tell me what is the difference in what Maher did and those few asshats on tweeter did other then then what Maher did was much more disgusting and hateful and his voice reaches millions compared to those few on tweeter. I will tell you the difference Sarah Palin is on the right which makes it perfectly acceptable to ignore the sickning remarks made by anyone on the left

    so tell me what is more news worthy that some nobodies on tweeter questioning the nationality of some kid singing the national anthem, or A person whose voice reaches million making vile disgusting remarks about a special needs child that his only crime is being the son of a mother the left hates?

    So get off your dam high horse and do some house cleaning before you dare call some one else out

There's probably more bigoted comments than that on this site every day.
    So you think there's no problem with racism in this country then?

    LMAO, struck a nerve? Odd you should use retard as your counter. I recall it being used in here a lot by 'conservatives' until a stink was raised so why the fuss now? I personally don't care about the word retard so it doesn't resonate with me like attacking a kid singing our national song and the biggest defender of that uses the immigration problem as the excuse for it.

    Now when was I elected the housecleaner for HBO, or Maher for that matter? Who says he speaks for me? THIS is EXACTLY what I was talking about, blanket labeling for one asshat, a well paid asshat who makes his money being an asshat, not unlike Oxcy rush, Coulture, Hannity, Beck and the like.

    There is a difference between asshats who makes their living being asshats and those who posted rather hateful crap about a boy singing the National Anthem...

    If ya can't see the diff then just keep on moving. If you can't apply the 'logic' grimm applied then keep moving. if you think I control any TV/Cable/Radio personalities then you really need a reality check.

    Sarah is not happy unless she is a victim. Send her more money. She knows how to spend it and you are dumb enough to give it to her. This kid was singing the national anthem at an event. What Bill Maher says at a comedy club is not remotely relevant to the situation.

    The only reason this is a story is because Palin and her supporters are making it one. Nobody in the media knows or cares what Mill Maher says in his comedy routine.

    Palin actually gave Limbaugh a pass on using the word retard. Now that is retarded.

    Gotta find a way to blame the liberals, huh?

    If someone talks about one of your media bias rants without "addressing what was said" you go ape****. So I challenge you to the same standard. Credit though for at least trying instead of aquapub's saying it was all black democratic voters who made those comments.

    Apparently, this was covered on Fox also. Guess you missed that. Maybe when the MRC covers it, you'll find your outrage...

    No one ever said there isn't racism in this country. There is and there probably always will be. But that really isn't what we're talking about here, is it. We're talking about whether or not a few guys and a handful of bigoted tweets is a reflection of the general racial tone for the country. I say it isn't. I say if we've stripped racism out of our society to the point that we're now looking at this specific incident as some sort of national outrage then we must be making progress.

    Just because it's a small minority doesn't mean we should just close our eyes and forget it happened. It only took 2 people to pull off the Boston Marathon bombing, but we still heard "why weren't we monitoring them?"

    That's a great example of selective outrage. You're outraged because one person said something mean about your Messiah, but not about "some nobodies on tweeter."

    These comments are perfectly acceptable to you, as long as they're not directed at a Conservative political figure.

    And I'd say that when adults start attacking a child singing the NA, that things have a LOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNGGGGGGGGG way to go.

    Do we need to call attention to every incident of racist stupidity? No. Not enough time in the day for that.

    But this incident specifically warrants some attention.

    Thankfully more people are supportive of the child than they are the rectum-wipes on twitter.

    I only learned about this story from this post, which linked to it on CNN.
