Practicing What’s Preached

Two people were removed from the Republican National Convention last night 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.

Interestingly enough, it appears the two culprits did not have names, and, as some have speculated, they will probably be allowed to attend the remainder of the convention.

Nevertheless, I applaud the decision of RNC Security Police to remove the two malignant tumors from the event before their stupidity had a chance to metasticize and spread to other attendees. I suppose this is what inevitably happens when the political rhetoric of political candidates is tailored to appeal to the sordid ideologies of the consumately ignorant, who subsequently embrace the notion that their ideologies are suddenly valid.

They simply practice what is preached.

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.”

I sure hope they weren’t referring to the Security Police?

  1. Hi Ray,

    One of the saddest truths I’ve ever had to accept (and I do accept it) is the realization that there are people who will be pro-active in their determination to prove ‘we’ will always ‘Have a Dream!’

    But what saddens me most is the realization it is they who have not awakened!

  2. Hi BJ,

    The sad part of this story is that it’s not surprising at all — weird, but not surprising. Of all the taunts that those two folks could have chosen, the one they opted to use lacked creativity.

    Yes, they are practicing what has been preached by the Party. Hate and distrust promoted against, well, just about everyone, is the ad nauseam lesson distributed to the angry masses — many of whom, don’t really know what they are angry about.

    Blame your woes on [insert group here] and you never have to face-up to reality.
