Obviously the Trump supporters. I know they didn't start it but they're still probably racist so they're still guilty.

I think the blanket statement of the MAGA crowd being racist in general is wrong. Most of them are racist, yes, but some of them are just stupid.

Can we actually talk about the actions that occurred in this event instead of your prejudices?

Trying to follow this conversation is really hard. I have no real idea what you guys are arguing about. Even after reading all posts from today.

What's happened is angry liberals jumped the gun to call something racist with out getting the context and now they look bad and the MAGA crowd has more ammo to deny any kind of racism that happens in their group. The rhetoric of liberals being overly sensitive race baiting war mongers drives people into Trumps crowd out of spite, and continuing a crusade against people for something they're not guilty of because "they're probably still racist" is stupid and adding more fuel to the fire.

Out of context photo of a non-confrontation/non-issue became scandalous, then when the context emerged, both sides blamed the non-confrontation/non-issue on the other side, and now a segment of MBers are reminding them that they're all morons for doing so.

Without knowing the details (not gonna watch 1 hour and 40 mintues of that video of people standing around rambling), I agree with the general sentiment. Jumping the gun with bullying and bad faith preconceptions is never a good look, whether you're right or left.

But as far as the specific case, I've got like 0.001% understanding of the issue. I agree with Frown that you need to know exactly what's really going on to make judgments.

I can just imagine a guy with blue jeans and an AC/DC shirt on banging his drum while a bunch of kids from the goth club taunt him and Elph stares him down with an oppressive and smarmy stare.

Edit: Then he spits in windsock's face and says, "Not in my America, Pleb!"

I don't even like AC/DC. The blue jeans part is true though. I'd probably use one of these bad boys:
