I don’t care who these jerks are. I suspect that if I ever caught someone doing this, I’d be leaving in handcuffs and the remains of the racist bastards would have to be cleaned up with a mop.
The Republican Party is responding to an incident yesterday in which two attendees at the GOP’s Tampa convention threw nuts at a female African-American CNN camera operator and said, “This is how we feed animals”. The RNC released a statement today which reads: “Two attendees tonight exhibited deplorable behavior. Their conduct was inexcusable and unacceptable. This kind of behavior will not be tolerated”. Several people reportedly witnessed the exchange which was first tweeted by David Shuster and confirmed by Talking Points Memo (TPM). RNC security and police removed the two people from the Tampa Bay Times Forum. No word yet on their identities.
I’m assuming these were delegates, and not a false-flag operation by Democratic plants.
The Republican National Committee is morally obligated to name the two individuals responsible for this heinous treatment of the CNN camerawoman. These racists deserved to be publicly named, shamed, and driven out of any role they have with the Republican Party. God may have mercy upon them; my compassion belongs to the woman merely trying to do her job.
