    There was this thread started by a Kos person on the board saying FOX was racist for not showing Gabby's face on the winning of the gold.

    I blew that crap out of the water as did other USMB conservatives in a heartbeat showing pictures of Gabby on FOX and wonderful pictures they are of her remarkable achievements.
    No wonder they call this kid the "flying squirrel". Gabby was just unreal. I haven't witnessed a gymnast like this since Nadya. Nadia to others.


    I digress. The boards were alive as was this one with the most stupid threads attempting to portray FOX as racist.

    Grab your helmets and your Immodium AD libs. NBC has been caught out as truly being racist.

    Guess I haven't been on enough. I have no idea who she is or what's going on.

    A) You didn't blow anything out of the water. B) I don't see the issue here, NBC doesn't have anything to apologize for.

    LOL! She's a beautiful little girl who's a gymnast for the USA at the Oympics. Gold! Oh, she's African American, so the flying monkey was an insult.

    Gabby Douglas is a sweet little girl, with talent that Olga Korbut and that overrated Romanian could only dream about.

    If FOX News had had the same commentary, the entire liberal maimed media's nose would be out of joint.

    Fox called victims trying to survive looters.

    Gabby Douglas. Pride and joy of America at these games. The girl is just amazing. GOLD. The political take on this though is that boards and some pretty high up ones tried to portray FOX as racist because they put up pictures of Gabby like this.

    I know. Go figure.

    But it became a political talking point for the left. Well now they've screwed themselves because NBC showed a monkey doing gymnastics right after showing Gabby's win.
