If you do not want your party or movement to be labeled in a derogatory manner, you should do everything in your power to be outspoken against the ignorant stuff. You don't see the GOP or Tea Party tripping over themselves to counter or stomp out the ignorant crap coming from their end, so people will just judge you by the company you keep.
I agree. As I pointed out to another poster - why didn't any of the candidates at that moment admonish the booers? I believe THAT would have won applause and made a statement that "NO I DON'T AGREE" with that sentiment - instead there was a silence of admission, we agree.
This standard should be equally apllied for the dems too...
