...White People Showing Up With Guns...

There are questions about whether this has a racial overtones. I mean here you have a man of color in the presidency and white people showing up with guns strapped to their waists or to their legs...

Here is the image that MSNBC showed....

Wow, white people showing up with arms like that to a black presidents appearance... Racism! There is one problem with the money shot there, though it was covered up with some tight camerawork. Here is a news report showing the face and actually talking to the fella with the firearm... Notice anything?

It looks to me like the guy happens to be black!

Now I am not sure that the point that people are making with firearms at these Town Halls is really conducive to their cause. Unless it is a ploy to get attention, to which it definitely works. But that is not the point of this post.

The point is, I believe that many (the media?) are WAY to busy playing 'chicken little' with the racism card. That little discussion there wouldn't have been as shocking without the shot of the guy with the assault rifle, it would have been silly (sillier) if they would have shown the guys identity. Unbiased... heh.

Sure there may be some in the crowd that dislike the president because of his skin, and they are as silly as these MSNBC people. I'll bet my big toe that the percentage of those people pales in comparison that dislike the president because of his policies...
