    Re: Mexican-American boy's national anthem sparks racist comments

    I'll ask again... How many of these tweets were there? Because if we're only talking about a few isolated nitwits(which at this point seems to be the case) then I would agree that this story is little more than the latest in a long line of attempts to manufacture outrage.

    But it did blow your claim right out of the water.

    The 'facts' in the link are as biased as the first one you drug in here... example the voters found to not be legible to vote, NO mention of how many records had to be combed through to find that number one in a million or one in a thousand? makes a difference. Interesting it is mostly Florida reports where the GOP has held state level power for a decade at least. Remember our hanging chad mess? Gore won the popular vote but only AFTER the courts stopped to count?

    Absolutely no attempt to be fair and balanced, not one mention of the Republican officials attempting voter fraud.

    A former republican official claims he was told he already voted, no followup to do more than put a rumor out there. Just a case of him claiming something.

    The more rural red states went for Willard is no surprise so trying to couple it with the voter ID laws is as bogus as a hooker's smile.

    The most all your 'facts' do is convince the already convinced some voter fraud occurred but the 'reports' hold back key information to give any sense of could any of it tilted the election.

    And lack any sort of balance....

    I just love the plethora of instances where you use "invaded" and "criminals".

    I love how you turn racist comments about a child singing the NA into a gigantic political conspiracy theory.

    You're doing exactly what you suggest CNN was doing (forget that I posted a Fox affiliate reporting the same news). You're saying CNN was making a mountain out of a mole hill - yet you've gone the same circle into suggesting it's a plot by CNN to ram an agenda down the throats of all Americans.

    But I'm guessing you can't see that can you?

    I guess that blows the racist right wing bigot narrative out of the water
    And how did you find this information? By Goggling the name? You better post some proof or you are just a racist ****bag as well.

    The boy's ancestors might well have been in Texas for generations before the first American showed up.

    Do you have any proof that this boy is a criminal who broke into our country?

    Seriously, lay down this mindless, hysterical race-card. You have UTTERLY overplayed and discredited it at this point and it carries ZERO weight.
    No, the comments were not about flags, language or welfare checks. They were about ethnicity. They were innapropriate. I'm not a big fan of political correctness, but I am a fan of allowing people to be proud of their heritage. For Pete's sake, the kid is an American. Let him sing the anthem in peace.

    LOL....you cannot even see the irony in your statement. You guys are the ones that are militantly obsessing over race when you hysterically question any person of color. How could they POSSIBLY be American....they aren't even white!!!! Too funny.
