I can't believe some of these people! They sarcastically refer to the freepers calling THEM the hatful ones and then laugh, but in the same thread they are making fun of this girl and saying how she's ugly, etc., etc.!!!

These people are complete morons!!!

If you read further down the thread there are some people saying that it's a scam and that the guy in the IUPAT shirt is her brother and the photographer is paid by the dad to take the shot. WTF? Do they have any proof to back this up or are they just engaging in one of their typical unfounded conspiracy theories that seem to run rampant over there?

There is a link to this thread that supposedly "proves" this is a scam.

Are you honestly asking for proof from members at DU?

Why is it not possible that it is indeed a scam? I don't put anything past anyone nowadays.

I'll wait till I see the memo.

ANYTHING POSTED AT DUh IS BS PROPAGANDA!

Any doubts - re-read the top line.

DUh has been, and always will be, the most extreme leftist (and sometimes criminal) site on the internet.

There is a link to a DU blogger in the main thread that spells out their case, and I've got to admit that the son in the gray shirt in the family photo does look a lot like the "union thug" in the AP photo.

DUers also claim that Laura Bush is a murderer and a drug dealer (I'm not kidding).

So there you are.

Can you post that link?

I'm not trying to stir shit here or anything like that, I just want to make sure that I have my bases covered and I keep myself honest for when I have to deal with a few of my more liberal co-workers. You know...the whole know your enemy's argument thing...

Although in the DUers case...knowing their argument is enough to make my head spin

Yep, and Vince Foster actually committed suicide.

Family photo is at the bottom of the page. I wish the photo were larger, but I looked at hair color, the shape of the nose and ears and the general build of both people.

I've always been of the opinion that Foster did commit suicide. I just don't think that he did it at Fort Marcy Park.

I wish I had been there!

It was not a scam. It really happened about 3 miles from my house.

It was all over the local radio stations.

If it was a scam, I doubt we'd hear this:

www.ibpat.org/news/WVa.html


The International Union of Painters and Allied Trades believes in the fundamental right for civil discourse, freedom of speech and activism to support our candidates and issues.

What happened in Huntington, West Virginia yesterday is an affront to everything we, as a union, pride ourselves to represent. We extend our apologies to the Parlock family, especially Sophia, for the distress one of our overzealous members caused them.

I have personally taken steps to address this issue internally, and will take immediate disciplinary action to the full extent allowed under U.S. Department of Labor regulations and the constitution of the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades.

It is my hope that this incident reminds all of our members that every last citizen in this country has the right to express his or herself freely. Not one single one of us has the right to tell them otherwise.

Thanks for posting that.

They're both Average White Guys (AWG).

Take five minutes, do a picture search, and I bet you can find 500 people who have a decent resemblance to this guy. Hell, a buddy of mine from HS, who is nowhere near WV bears a passing resemblance to that union guy.

Yeah, I'd say this is the damning evidence right here.

About the only thing I could think of is that possibly the IUPAT would rather just apologize and save face rather than act defiant and claim it's a scam, even if it was (I'm not saying it is) ETA:and this would be clutching at straws too.
