    Blueberry Hill, if ya' don't mind. I don't know about a guy in a cowboy hat; but I sure don't automatically assume that what I read is correct. And that how something is interpreted by the media is correct. There's plenty of precedent for disrupters being recruited to go to opponents' rallies. The fact that you don't believe it doesn't mean it isn't true.

    T he point is, there is absolutely no reason to believe that an unidentified, unnamed person who shows up at a political rally with a shirt or slogan that actually works against the candidate holding the rally, is necessarily a supporter of that candidate and not his opponent.

    But then this could have been cleared up had the man been identified and interviewed. But that didnt happen.

    Well, it certainly doesn't help your party

    Of course this guy doesn't represent anyone but himself but to ignore that race hasn't been a large part of republican strategy for last 40 years is a joke. I doubt most of the politicians be it Reagan, Bush or whomever have racist views but they have sought the racist vote. The Southern Strategy isn't a myth.

    Welfare Queens, Willie Horton, ObamaPhone, ObamaMoney, New Black Panther Party etc... Have one message "be afraid whitey the blacks are coming".

    I want to know who made the t-shirt but haven't found anything yet through Googling.

    Who is this guy? Is he part of a group? If so, what is it, and how big is it? Or could this be a little flame-fanning stunt?

    HuffPo and Kos are talking about this, but I'm hoping that other sites will too and that more facts will emerge. In the meantime, I'm not going to overreact or overgeneralize when this may be a lone kook or or a plant. All we know is that he is a creep, regardless.

    So if you never believe a picture or what you read how do you receive information?

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    The thing about attempting to shame people like that is that if it were POSSIBLE to shame them then they wouldn't wear something like that to BEGIN with. IF a person wants to be a rascist that is their right...as long as it doesn't infringe on anyone elses rights. What we CAN do is those of us who have our own business is refuse to allow them to patronize our business and if you DON'T own a business then boycott THEIR business or place of employment. Short of that there isn't much we can LEGALLY do. Which is a shame.

    Maybe my friends from that bar in Kenya (The White House) paid him to wear it. I miss them too.

    That really isn't what I said. But now that you mention it, how do people sort out truth from fiction? When I first saw that photo, I thought, "Oh, well, a jerk at a Romney rally, big deal." Then I thought, "I wonder if it was even a Romney supporter? I don't care either way because whether it was or whether it wasn't doesn't make any difference to me. He's one guy.

    But if you believe photographs you see on the internet . . . if you believe newsreels you see of events . . . without question, you're not thinking, in my opinion. We can soooo easily be manipulated by the media as to make it scarey. We've all seen the altered videos of Bush and others making speeches they never made. Photoshopped pictures that lie.

    I remember seeing a documentary about media manipulation some time ago. One of the methods that impressed me was how they can manipulate a crowd scene to give the impression there are hundreds of demonstrators when there are only a few dozen. All with camera angles and close-cropped shots. I mean I saw it with my own eyes. It was, pardon the pun, eye-opening. Ha!

    I'm pretty skeptical -- especially when it comes to politics. I don't think of it as a failing, I think of it as a strength. I don't believe any of 'em.

    If he's a white supremacist, it doesn't really matter if he goes by Billy Bob, Cooter or Jimmy Ray. Stormfront denizens will surely be able to help you with some of that t-shirt research, tho.

    Now, if he was paid to put on that t-shirt and go strut his stuff at Romney rallies that's a whole other debate on a whole other brand of repulsive ideas. At this point, I'm taking it at face value and choose to focus on condemning the racist message.
