1. Why go to web sites that love to post this garbage?

And why bring it back here?

2. It showed up on a Facebook feed

That's the problem-the filth isn't confined to places like Fox, it is polluting the zeitgeist as a whole.

The blog is calling out RW racist garbage.

4. When I clicked on the link, only the picture was showing.

The text below the picture (now present) adds a diferent context, to say the least.

6. I'd say ignoring it is tacit acceptance.

Too many people let unacceptable actions go by, and that emboldens the actors. Time we stood up and called them out instead of letting their claptrap go unchallenged.

8. Sure, if you read the text below the image

In fact, I'd omit the word "tacit". The blog post is pretty explicit.

9. Like spreading the flu around so everybody will know how bad it is?

You are right that the OP is critical of the graphic, but I still don't see the need to help spread this sort of un-subtle crap around.

10. A difference in approach

My analogy would be shining a bright light to illuminate the cockroaches; the alternative being to keep the lights off.

Only by exposing vermin can we eradicate them.

I do understand your point and approach, but I don't share that sort of passive acceptance mode of operation.

We all do what we can, in the manner that suits our nature and abilities.

13. There is a classic response on the blog site

And a reader who cuts the racist jackass down to size.
