They’re not just chucking peanuts at black people at the RNC:
An unscripted moment happened late this afternoon that caused the assembled mainstream media to turn away in the hope that it would disappear. As I was standing in line for a sandwich next to an Italian and a Puerto Rican correspondent, a controversy was unfolding on the floor. The RonPaulites, whose furious devotion to a single idea have made them the Ellen Jamesians of the right, were protesting a decision by RNC officials not to seat members of the Maine delegation, which was split between Paul and Romney supporters following rule changes made just prior to the convention. There were energetic shouts of “Aye!” and “Nay!” as a Puerto Rican party functionary—Zoraida Fonalledas, the chairwoman of the Committee on Permanent Organization—took her turn at the main-stage lectern. As she began speaking in her accented English, some in the crowd started shouting “U.S.A.! U.S.A.!”
They were also yelling go back home:
There is a reason the Romney/Ryan campaign has eagerly embraced racist dogwhistles and lies about welfare. When you are polling at o% with African Americans (and no, that is not a typo) and only slightly better with Latinos, all you’ve got left is angry white people voting for you. Once you realize that, you sort of get used to the fact that some of your base is cutting holes in their pillowcases before they come to the annual convention.
