For once I agree with him...

President Obama was interrupted several times by GetEQUAL activists during a speech at a fundraiser for Senator Barbara Boxer in Los Angeles on Monday.

Activists shouted, "What about 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell?'" and "It's time for equality for all Americans."

At one point the President halted his speech to address the activists. He said, "Barbara and I are supportive of repealing 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell'."
Since they are opposing the President is it safe to say they must be racists?

Since it seems you are opposing ...

the current President, it is safe to say you must be a racist? Surely you aren't.

No, but...

that is the charge from those on the left, including Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton among others. Anyone who shows opposition to Obama is a racist.

Not at all.

First, they were not "opposing the President", they were shouting in draw attention to their agenda. They were there to take advantage at a high-profile event, but seem to not been aware of the President's stance which he had articulated in the past.

But you chose to spin it to suit your own agenda--- show that people are against Obama.

The accusation of racism has no basis in fact, but appears to be in retaliation for the accusations made against the T-P that racism has motivated some to join that movement, like the Dixiecrats of the ppast which was the strongest in the South.

Ha! Talk about spinning...

That's what the Tea Party people are doing as well. And yet the spin from the left is that they are a just a bunch of racists.

Hypocrisy is what I calls it!
