    That's partisan vitriol.

    Do you dispute that it is true? A photo speaks a thousand words.

    No, what you're doing is intellectually dishonest. You're looking at the people in those photos and insinuating that they're white/fat/talk radio listeners. No, you're spewing partisan vitriol, and it is exactly that kind of disgusting hackery that gives both the political right and left a bad rap.

    That's like saying the womens rights crowd is a bunch of butch lesbians because of pictures that were deliberately taken and selected to depict them in that way.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    No. In fact....there isn't a single person of color in any of the photos.

    And the second part was my OWN personal observation...I never claimed it as a fact.

    Are you suggesting that these pictures were taken to skew the demographics of the crowd? Funny.....the site where they come from is a right-wing site. So that kinda dispels that theory.

    It's not a theory, since the scientific process hasn't been applied. Only thing going on here is you childishly accusing Chick Fil A customers of being fat racists.

    Where did I ever imply that they were "racist". What I said is that it is very telling that in the photos there isn't a single person of color at this CFA "Appreciation day". It was more of a commentary on the GOP becoming the extremist party of white America, then it was about racisim. That was simply your knee-jerk reactionism in play. And considering that the "CFA Appreciation day" was largely created by and promoted by right-wing media....I don't think that I am far off.

    I dislike word games.

    You comment on where you supposedly implied they were racist, yet you say it's "very telling" that there weren't any "persons of color" at the CFAs. Then you haphazardly comment about how the GOP is "becoming an extremist party of white America." You're backtracking, insinuating those people are fat racists, yet not taking responsibility for your comments. I think you should practice some self-respect and admit what you really mean to say about them. I get it. You despise them because they're hateful, evil, Christian, white, straight Americans. Yeah, **** 'em, correct?

    Say what you mean, so you don't get caught up in your subtle insinuations again.

    Wow....feeling a little defensive. There is Nothing....Zero.....Zilch that I have said about them being racist. In fact...if you want to hear it directly I will spell it out. THERE IS NOTHING ABOUT THE PHOTOS THAT I FIND THAT WOULD INSINUATE THAT ANY OF THESE PEOPLE ARE RACIST....NOR AM I IMPLYING THAT THEY ARE RACIST. There....does that make it clear?

    What I AM saying is that the GOP has shifted so far to the extreme right that they have pretty much alienated any people of color from their party. That isn't saying that they are RACIST. What it is saying is that their policies and beliefs/platform is so far extremist right-wing that it only appeals to the type of people depicted in the photos. It isn't about Racism....its about EXTREMISM.
