Picture of the Week (Sure It's Early, but I Don't Think Anything's Gonna Top This)


From yesterday's big Triumph of the Shill rally in D.C.

Well, I guess that settles it then.

I hope they paid the guy in the middle well to be in that photo...

Looks to me like the guy in the middle is, in fact, selling these photos...

Even though I'd wager that both of those men have said something along the lines of "Well, [Token] isn't like most black people" - I'll give them the benefit of the doubt.

Someone should probably tell them they're surrounded by racists. No need to panic though, these are the 'racist in their own home' variety that would never have enough balls to openly admit their hate.

I'm not a racist or hater or anything like that, but I must say that I have a lot of black neighbors and they are just so loud when they have those family reunions. Those people also like to paint their shutters purple and they put fat tires on their cars. I don't understand what they have to be so angry about with this Glenn Beck rally. He is really right when he says that they don't own Martin Luther King. Isn't it racist of them to say that Beck doesn't have the right to stand on the same steps as MLK? Yes, that's racist.

Just the fact that they are holding the signs, singling out a black dude, pretty much is racist, or am I out of touch? Or am I stomping on the obvious.

Do we look racist? Hard to tell. But the guy in the middle looks like a douche bag. He's wearing a fanny pack!

Anon 9:29, saying Beck shouldn't stand where MLK stood isn't racist. it's a personal value judgment, and one I happen to agree with. Racism is simply the habit of making judgments about people based on their skin color. Judging Beck as you suggest is a matter of calling him an asshole, not a "whitey." frankly, I don't think much of MLK's anti-woman niece, either. She'd be jack shit to this gang if not for the ability she gives them to say "Look, MLK's niece is with us!"

Lol, Ref, I think Anon 9:29 was being sarcastic. At least, I hope so.

As we know, racists burst into flames upon touching a black person, so this is incontrovertible proof.

Anon 8:32, I see your point, but he/she wasn't good enough at it to convince me!
