Racist signs at McCain rallies: follow-up

Okay so maybe the previous post about crazy signs at McCain rallies wasnt clearly racist enough so we'll try this one.

Now the point of the previous post was not that there are racist people in the world with the minimum of intelligence required to construct a sign and show up at a location within a certain time period. I know they exist.

The issue in the previous post was not only do I know it, someone on the McCain campaign at that rally knew it as well and apparently thought it was fine to have that held up a dozen rows or so from the stage.

The guy in this picture is using his First Amendment rights and is lawfully standing outside a McCain rally. And while I severely disagree with what he's doing he has the right to do that.

Which then I guess brings us back to the previous post. Either McCain's campaign felt so strongly about putting Country First that they felt they should censor the person's sign or they agreed with the sign and the sentiment behind it (which was not to be funny).

  1. I don't like Muslims that kill babies either. Hehehe.

    Ok ok I get your point. This guy is obviously an idiot and not only being offensive and ignorant but perpetuating a stereotype of Christians. Bleh. People are dumb.

    Also from what I can see I think this was from outside an Obama event in Toledo. If something like this was inside a McCain event, meaning the staff had approved it, I would obviously agree for that to be a bad thing.

  4. I wonder if that's why McCain likes ACORN too or if it's for some other reason.

    Other fun acronyms:

    WMD's
    GDP
    NYSE
    NSA
    GOP

    and as always ...

    NASA
