Romney and Ryan Campaign in Ohio (Photo of man wearing racist t-shirt; DU, DKOS screen name?)
Google ^ | Friday, October 12, 2012 | Photo by Jamie Sabau

Posted on 10/12/2012 6:21:21 PM PDT by kristinn

Note by Kristinn: AFP/ Getty Images took the photo so it can't be posted here. Click the source link to view the photo of a bald (skinhead) man at a Romney-Ryan rally in Lancaster, Ohio today. The man is wearing a black t-shirt with large white all-capitalized letters emblazoned on the back that says, "Put the white back in the White House."

To make sure, the man placed a Romney-Ryan sticker at the top of the back of the t-shirt. By coincidence, a wire service photographer just happened to be in a position to take his picture.

Media photographers will usually ask the name of the person they are photographing. There is no mention in the AFP description of the photo of who the man is, but he is described as a "supporter" of Mitt Romney. Also, the man's face is completely unseen because of the angle of the photo.

My guess is this a set-up by a liberal activist or union goon and the photographer.

Even if this is legit, and I seriously doubt it (he's more likely a lefty plant), this racist jerk wouldn't be representative of our side.

But if you want to talk about no-doubt-about-it racist jerks...

"The Justice Department originally brought the case against four armed men who witnesses say derided voters with catcalls of "white devil" and "cracker" and told voters they should prepare to be "ruled by the black man." ..."

One poll watcher called police after he reportedly saw one of the men brandishing a nightstick to threaten voters.

As I walked up, they closed ranks, next to each other,” the witness told Fox News at the time. “So I walked directly in between them, went inside and found the poll watchers. They said they’d been here for about an hour. And they told us not to come outside because a black man is going to win this election no matter what.”

He said the man with a nightstick told him, “’We’re tired of white supremacy,’ and he starts tapping the nightstick in his hand. At which point I said, ‘OK, we’re not going to get in a fistfight right here,’ and I called the police.”...”

If the man had been Conservative, they would have shown another picture with his face. That way the SEIU goons could have hunted him down. But they covered for the guy by only showing his racist t-shirt.

Next time either one shows up at a rally, if someone, for example, hypothetically, put 'em in the hospital, how many times would this recur?

Wow! You would think that the person who took this picture would have tried to get a picture of his face so that we could truly find out who this was. Unless they ( libs) did not want us to know who he was. This is typical Alinski...after 4 years of this Alinsky crap I can recognize it a mile away. Sad.

The very fact that they will not show his face convinces me it's a false flag operation and Getty images damn well is in on it. The caption describes the individual as

"A supporter of Republican presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Republican vice presidential candidate U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI)"

On exactly what evidence does the reporter know that he is a supporter or either candidate? He would appear far more likely to be a support of Barack Obama. Just my opinion. It reminds me of the doctored and staged photographs that come out the Middle East depicting Israeli "atrocities".

Let me tell you what I think is the final card Obama and co. will play: Racial unrest.

The next 30 days are going to get ugly. I hope Romney/Ryan can just hang tough.

I feel sure Ryan can, he IS of Irish descent (we love to fight, we really do love it), Romney will need his and our support!

This is near my hometown, and I can assure you this is a heavy Republican area. However, some were planning to protest the speech today, but not too many showed up for that. It looked like a fairly good-sized crowd from the pix I’ve seen. I didn’t go because I didn’t want to fight the crowd. They had our main highway blocked off as well as the downtown area of Lancaster, but were providing shuttle buses for the event from a site in the east end of Lancaster.

The local paper in Lancaster posted some pix of the event. You can see them at www.lancastereaglegazette.com.

It looked from going to your LancasterEagleGazette link to be nippy there. Most folks were wearing jackets, not sleeveless shirts like the guy in the Getty photo.

My guess is this a set-up by a liberal activist or union goon and the photographer.

My guess is it's another fake-but-accurate.

Out of curiosity, I looked at a close up of the photo.

Despite the fact every hair and wrinkle on the shirt is crystal clear, the lettering on the shirt and sticker are blurred. I even went to the website to see it it was originally looked like, yet couldn't find one like it.

Also, look at the "E" in 'the' and the one in 'house'. you can see them both equally despite the fact the crease is deeper at the top

If this were real, you wouldn't be able to see part of the e in the lower word, and less that half of the E in the top word.

Besides, does anyone really think someone would get away with prancing around in that shirt at a Romney rally and no one else would call them on it?

-------

BTW - the t shirt website isn't a liberal site, it just sells the stuff.

They have some clever anti-Obama and pro Romney stuff, too.

This thread was a great resource for countering those who may want to link this guy to Romney and Romney supporters. Here's my summary of counterpoints, some which I got from this thread.

1) As described by the source, the picture was taken before the event began, so we don't know if anyone objected to him wearing this or if he was later allowed access into a restricted area wearing that shirt.

2) If man in a NAMBLA T-shirt showed up at an LGBT event, liberals would yell foul if someone tried to link that community to pedophilia based on this. How is this any different?

3) The only manufacturer of shirts like this which I could find came from a site marketing shirts to those who hate Palin, which seem to be encouraging liberals to buy these shirts in order to link Palin and her supporters to racism.

4) Google - Romney Lancaster - and then click "Videos": You'll see Romney, Ryan, and almost everyone in the crowd in coats. It was cold that day. So why is this guy there in a T-shirt?

5) There were cameras everywhere that day, yet this was the one and only picture this guy! I don't see how that's possible - unless he removed his coat, posed for the picture, put his coat back on and left.

6) It has been documented that radical anti-right activists and groups exist whose sole purpose is to infiltrate right-wing events and to dress, carry signs, or act in a way that will discredit the right. All evidence seems to cleary point to that being the case here:
* Picture taken before the event began
* No other pictures or videos exist
* Cold day, everyone else in coats and hats
* Man's face is not shown
* Man is not interviewed


Finally, if this was NOT a set up, then the photographer would have done much more. He would have followed the guy who was their before the campaign began to see what happened once campaign organizers arrived. He would have gotten out a video camera, or taken many photographs in sequence, to allege that the crowd was not reacting to this shirt.

And others, including news media, would have also taken and posted pictures or videos by now.

But no, he took the one and only shot, which makes itclear that this was a set up - this was a quick-stand-over-there in-and-out operation.
