Even Ann Romney’s comments in her speech were veiled with WHITENESS. “Mitt’s going to save our country.” Save it from what, whom? I can tell you as an American, Mitt will not fail,” “This is our country.”
These fools better recognize that this country called America, was built on the backs of SLAVES. So if there’s anyone who saved America it wil be its DIVERSITY.
From TPM: RNC Attendee Allegedly Threw Nuts At Black CNN Camerawoman, Said ‘This Is How We Feed Animals’
An attendee at the Republican National Convention in Tampa on Tuesday allegedly threw nuts at a black camerawoman working for CNN and said “This is how we feed animals” before being removed from the convention, a network official confirmed to TPM.
The CNN official declined to confirm specific details of the incident to TPM but generally confirmed an account posted on Twitter by former MSNBC and Current anchor David Shuster: “GOP attendee ejected for throwing nuts at African American CNN camera woman + saying ‘This is how we feed animals.’”
It is not clear whether the alleged culprit was a delegate or attending the convention in some other capacity.
In a written statement, CNN addressed the matter but divulged few details: “CNN can confirm there was an incident directed at an employee inside the Tampa Bay Times Forum earlier this afternoon. CNN worked with convention officials to address this matter and will have no further comment.”
TPM’s calls to RNC and convention officials were not immediately returned.

Wednesday, August 29, 2012 A Particularly “Low” Class of White People: Republicans Throw Nuts at Black Folks; They Heckle the “Foreign” Delegate from Puerto Rico
Their forefathers were John Birchers. Their grand-pappies and grandmas likely spent time at the monthly lynching tree. Some of them were members of White Citizens Councils, the “polite” racists, who stood against civil rights for black folks and upheld Jim and Jane Crow. Earlier this year, the most zealous among them booed gay soldiers, howled in glee at the prospect of a person being executed by the State, and cheered people dying because some sad soul did not have health insurance.
This is the contemporary face of the Republican Party, who the Tea Party GOP are and have always been. When Republicans heckled Zoraida Fonalledas, the representative from Puerto Rico to their own convention with nativist chants earlier today, they showed the American people who and what they really are…again.
[And do not buy into the excuse-making: Chants of “U.S.A.” have nothing to do with an internecine conflict between Ron Paul and establishment conservatives. Rather, this episode has everything to do with white conservative xenophobia and anti-immigrant zeal by a group of mouth-breathing Right-wing troglodytes who believe that Puerto Ricans are dangerous Spanish speaking “foreigners.”]
