    Several participants Tweeted that butter knives were banned outright and forks were confiscated as soon as the diners finished eating and before the President entered the room to speak.
    The attendees were elected officials and their staffs, not just the average Jose off the street. Nevertheless, Obama took away their forks as if they were inmates at a prison. Many of these elected officials are probably wondering why the president was concerned for his safety.
    Dan Amira of New York Magazine showed photos of the many times Obama has been in a room with "fork wielding strangers." If a republican president had done the same thing, it would have been treated as prima facie evidence of racism.

    Just a few days after announcing that his administration would no longer deport about 800,000 young illegal immigrants, you would think that President Obama would be received as something of a hero by NALEO, the National Association of Latino Elected Officials, before whom Obama is giving a speech this afternoon in Orlando. But the Secret Service wasn't taking any chances. As hundreds of Latino elected officials were enjoying their lunch at Disney's Contemporary Resort earlier today, it was announced that forks would be collected before Obama took the stage. It was also mentioned that knives, too, were entirely absent from the lunch for "a reason."

    Wow, and they thought Nixon was paranoid.

    You can stab a person with the handle of a spoon anyway, or just strangle him if you can get that close.

    If you can get close enough to someone to stab them with a butter knife or fork, you are close enough to grab them by the throat and strangle them.

    I once knew a human resource director (excruciating liberal) who would take her expensive jewelery off before she would go out to the manufacturing line, where the Puerto Ricans and Kenyans worked. But that's off topic. 'Cept to say liberals are usually aware of race first.

    You know, that's true. A few years back I worked in a factory and my best friend there was a black fellow named Leroy. There was another fellow there who was very liberal and always liked to discuss politics with me, him knowing I was very conservative.

    One day this liberal fellow asked me HOW I could be friends with Leroy. I was a little shocked when he asked me this. I said, "You mean because I am Southern and I am a Republican?" He said yes, he couldn't understand how I could be friends with a black man. He was dead serious, it confused him.

    I just laughed and said, "Man, you better stay away from Leroy, as soon as you open your mouth he is going to want to punch you out!"

    This guy was incredible, he would say stuff like, "I once had an African American at my house, and we had him for dinner." :laugh:

    Liberals are the biggest bigots out there.

    Just think, obama was the one who said, "if they bring a knife to the fight, we will bring a gun" or something like that.

    Most dictators are paranoid.
