Republicans think about “The Coloreds” constantly.
An attendee at the Republican National Convention in Tampa 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. It could not be immediately determined when the incident happened or where within the convention complex.
This might be the best thing Athenae’s ever written, and that’s saying something. Just brilliant.
UPDATE: The victim has died.
Well, if she lives, and she’s pregnant, she can always heal herself emotionally by giving birth to her rapist’s child – and then he can file for parental rights! Rick Santorum would be so proud!
And she’s lucky enough that this would be considered a “legitimate” rape, even by Todd Akin:
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A sheriff says a severely burned woman was naked and had a rope around her neck when a passing motorist spotted her on a road in a rural, heavily wooded area of eastern Ohio, roughly 60 miles from her home.
The traveler found the woman Sunday northeast of Zanesville and called 911. He told a dispatcher the woman had been raped, beaten and burned.
Muskingum County Sheriff Matt Lutz says the 29-year-old woman from the Canton area had fourth-degree burns over most of her body. He said she was in critical condition Monday at a Columbus hospital.
Maybe Paul Ryan can visit her and encourage her to do the “right” thing.
