The Grand Old Pale club finally had their convention start yesterday. While the media was all over the speeches, one thing that you won’t really see covered much is something that happened on the floor:
Two people were removed from the Republican National Convention Tuesday after they threw nuts at an African-American CNN camera operator and said, “This is how we feed animals.”
Multiple witnesses observed the exchange and RNC security and police immediately removed the two people from the Tampa Bay Times Forum.
This is racism pure and simple. There is absolutely no way you can spin it in another direction. Of course there should be no shock here. In 2008, at the RNC convention, bumper stickers were being sold that says “It’s called the White House”.
