From the article, emphasis added: For your viewing pleasure (or disgust) here is the tweet of that photo
First of all, I am deeply put off at how the Republican Party -- and its candidates -- continually transforms race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, and fear into wedge issues intended to be divisive and appeal to the worst instincts of their base and the broader electorate. I am frequently dumbfounded at how they invoke "values," whether they be so-called family values, or Christian values, or whatever moniker they choose, as euphemisms for bigotry, intolerance, and exclusionism.
Yet I have to take exception with the implication that a group of white kids is somehow something of "disgust." If I saw a photo of Representative John Lewis with an all-black group of interns I certainly would NOT be disgusted by it. While it is true that the photo tweeted by Speaker Ryan suggests that the Republican Party has a demographic problem, it is hardly a disgusting photo.
There is too much hyperbole on both the extreme right, AND the extreme left. Governance in a representative republic as diverse as the US must be from the center, yet political discourse in the era of Internet bloggers, partisan talk radio, social media, and hyper-biased "news" media has been hijacked by the extremes.
