“Sit down, boy”

Coming on the heels of John McCain whipping up a crowd of supporters who called Obama a “terrorist,” and Sarah Palin getting her audience to yell “Kill him!” (apparently about Obama), we now find out that Sarah Palin’s mob of supporters yesterday turned on a black journalist and yelled “racial epithets” at him while telling him to “sit down, boy.”

From the Washington Post:

Worse, Palin’s routine attacks on the media have begun to spill into ugliness. 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.”

Need any more proof of the divisiveness and elitism that John McCain and Sarah Palin are bringing to our country? Imagine, whipping up a crowd to hate “the other.” Any surprise that Palin and McCain have so many ties to anti-Semites?
