is all of this coming from the same source that has a track record of lying?
Correction, voting for Romney means either someone is right-wing or anti-communist. I'm pretty sure the Romney voters were really just anti-communist.
If This Cute Cheerios Ad Causes Drama, What Won't?
Cheerios ad with mixed-race family draws racist responses
Does anyone seriously believe the Racist Responders voted for anyone but Romney in the last election???
That makes them Right Wing.
The General Social Survey, which is the best-run of the omnibus surveys (getting about a 70 percent response rate as opposed to a 1-25 percent response for more typical opinion polls) has data on family makeup. I was able to analyze their 2000 through 2012 data on 723 households in which any family members were adopted children or step-children of the head of the household or of the spouse of the respondent. For almost all of these households, the GSS reports both political views and whether the household is mixed race, as opposed to a white household, an African-American household, or whatever.
Not surprisingly, there is no statistically significant left-right political differences in the proportion of adopted or step-families that are in mixed race households. Indeed, among families with step-children or adopted children, 11 percent of conservatives were living in mixed race households compared to 10 percent of liberals living in mixed-race households.
Thus, there is no evidence in the GSS data that Republican, conservative, or conservative Republicans who were living with step-children or adopted children were less likely to live in mixed-race households than Democrats, liberals, liberal Democrats, or moderate Democrats in adopted or step-families. Indeed, in each instance the point estimates for living in a mixed-race household were insignificantly higher for the right side of the spectrum than for the left side

The guy called all right wing people racist. Maybe people should stop playing the race card and stop the race baiting. Anyone who does should be fired, whether liberal or conservative. Or maybe you like the fires of racial tension being stoked by the media.
Unless this person was told to make this tweet, there was an obvious lack of judgement on their part.
That being said, I don't think they should be fired for it.
All to often when someone does something stupid or silly, the fake outrage ensues and we scream "off with their heads".
Its kinda sad and we forget that we all make mistakes and must feed our families.
