It’s not completely clear why what happened actually happened, but apparently a convention attendee or two started throwing food at a black CNN camera person:
CNN — 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.
The convention released a statement saying, “Two attendees tonight exhibited deplorable behavior. Their conduct was inexcusable and unacceptable. This kind of behavior will not be tolerated.”
So, two conservatives at a convention full of good ole boy southern racists happened to bully a black person with racially charged slurs, and that race happens to be the same as the democratic opponent they’ve been carefully stoked by racist misinformation to despise. Yeah, nothing to see here, move along folks…
