What the hell does it mean to be "liberal looking""

What a total dick. I think he should just hand out armbands and all who wear them are considered party loyal. Then they can have a big 'ol bonfire and sing songs of Glory and God and That County They All Dream Of; You know. The one with THEM in charge. Cretinous slime. In the right light you can probably see the stink rise off of him.

The GOP resembles the Communists they claim to hate more and more every day.

Many in the community would likely not be pleased with Scott’s cuts, but those voices remained unheard — mainly because they were banned. Declaring the town square event to be “private,” Scott’s staffers had Sumter County sheriff’s deputies remove Democrats and those with “liberal-looking pins and buttons” from the event.

I hate to Godwin...but this smacks of outright facsism.

It's easy to identify the liberals! They're the ones not carrying guns.

Overall, the protest signs have fewer misspellings, and nobody uses Comic Sans.

In his speech Thursday, Scott omitted many of the serious-sounding programs he cut: homeless veterans, meals for poor seniors, a council for deafness, a children’s hospital, cancer research, public radio, whooping-cough vaccines for poor mothers, or aid for the paralyzed.

Wonderful! Its about time someone had the balls to push for the most efficient solution to unemployment: let the useless trash die! /sarc

And what about the protesters? Screw 'em! If they wanted to be heard, they should've been preaching the true tenants of Christ. /moresarc

Liberal looking = Anyone who is black, latino, female, middle eastern or under the age of 40.

Anybody not smiling because they hate him and what he is doing to the state of Florida.

The original article in the Miami Herald does not have "liberal-looking pins" in quotes. It seems that that is just their interpretation of what went down. ThinkProgress putting it in quotes and titling their article with that phrase, also in quotes, gives the implicit impression that it was Scott who used the phrase in some instruction to his sheriffs. He might have, but the Miamia Herald article certainly does not say that.

This is why I do not trust ThinkProgress. They are deceptive. Take this article on AIPAC which they titled "AIPAC Attendees Say Jews Who Criticize Israel Are Traitors, Demand Loyalty To Netanyahu" which is clearly not a fair summation of what went down in their video (if you can stomach it, go to the comments section in the non-cached version of that link, typical lefty-antizionist bullshit).

re: #10 000G

To expand on that: The Miami Herald article says "liberal-looking pins" which ThinkProgress turns into "'liberal-looking' people". That's clearly trying to induce responses like dragonfire1981's in this thread.

By the way, JFTR: I am not a Scott fan. I think the guy is a fascist.

To be fair my response was tongue in cheek.
