Groundhog's Day..... the more things change, the more they stay the same.

So in 2006, NBC tried to find support for its meme that those redneck NASCAR fans just can't quite control themselves when faced with a fully-bearded dude dressed in muslim garb.  NASCAR fans didn't bother the guys and NBC decided not to continue their 'investigation' at the next race.

In 2010, ABC sent a reporter into a crowd of folks protesting the Ground Zero mosque who apparently tried the confrontational route by badgering ralliers and again, got nowhere but busted cold trying to start a fight.

In 2011, a Brazilian reporter for Al Jazeera, apparently trying to follow the same meme, decides to try to go to a Texas high school football game to 'interview' game goers about their attitudes about 9/11 and muslims in general and is politely told that due to FERPA and other issues, they would have to decline his offer to spin his reporting to make the populace of Booker, Texas look like racist Islamophobes.

You'd think that they'd quit trying after a while.....  The meme is dead dudes, look at the unions if you want real hate and violence.
