Look, across the hall, it’s a poster, a flag, a t-shirt! No, it’s a self-righteous teabagger who thinks rules only apply to everyone else!

Senator Claire McCaskill (D): open forum in Hillsboro – video of the Rosa Parks poster altercation

via Peter Glickert at HatingNotDebating:

This video provides the full breadth of what happened at Senator Claire McCaskill’s town hall event in Hillsboro, Missouri.

I must make one thing clear, it is not the intention of this video in any way shape or form to blame the actions of the police officers. They were doing their job and this video is intended to highlight the discrepancies between what was covered by the media and what was not. In addition to how biased those in attendance were towards the 4 black females. If they were fair then they would have shown the same displeasure towards the 3 white audience members holding the “Don’t tread on me” flags, which were held up the entire town hall event.

Posted at the entry to the field house.

Look like a banner to me. Small, but a banner:

Senator Claire McCaskill (D): open forum in Hillsboro – photos

…a late entering African American woman breaking the “sign rule” is an outrage upon civilized society and is pointed out instantly. It is enough of an outrage so that some jerk can jump out of the stands and try to rip it away (for God’s sake, it was a Rosa Parks poster). Yet, a bunch of people can stand after that with their “Don’t Tread on Me” flags and there’s not a whisper from the crowd…

This individual was across the field house from the other two individuals. She’s standing in front of the media riser at the end of the field house opposite the podium.

You think all those upset people in the stands at the field house couldn’t see those “Don’t Tread on Me” flags because of all the noise? Nah. Apparently loud, obnoxious, and rude behavior are indications for colorblindness in the yellow spectrum.
