In Clearwater, arriving reporters were greeted with shouts and taunts by the crowd of about 3,000. Palin then went on to blame Katie Couric’s questions for her “less-than-successful interview with kinda mainstream media.” At that, Palin supporters turned on reporters in the press area, waving thunder sticks and shouting abuse. Others hurled obscenities at a camera crew. One Palin supporter shouted a racial epithet at an African American sound man for a network and told him, “Sit down, boy.”
Let’s not forget the “KILL HIM” shouting and the “TERRORIST” shouting at the mention of Obama.
Palin and McCain have done nothing, of course, to denounce this behavior. It’s on purpose. Their racist adviser hired from Bush’s 2000 South Carolina campaign (against McCain…) is making sure that whitey is made about Obama.
