From dKos, people who are showing up at McCain Rallies are being asked to leave – simply because they “don’t look right”. (Assumed – they don’t look “right” is a political pun.)
“I saw a couple that had been escorted out and they were confused as well, and the girl was crying, so I said ‘Why are you crying? and she said ‘I already voted for McCain, I’m a Republican, and they said we had to leave because we didn’t look right,’” Elborno said. “They were handpicking these people and they had nothing to go off of, besides the way the people looked.”
Cheeze-n-crackers..! McCain kicking out anybody from his campaign equates to double-digit percentages of the entire audience! His staffers kicked out, say…”four people” and that’s 25% of his entire audience!
Laura Elborno, who is a student, went on:
Elborno said after seeing the people who were asked to leave, she was concerned that McCain’s staffers were profiling people on appearance to determine who might be a potential protester.
“When I started talking to them, it kind of became clear that they were kind of just telling people to leave that they thought maybe would be disruptive, but based on what? Based on how they looked,” Elborno said. “It was pretty much all young people, the college demographic.”
Ouch. I guess it’s curtains for me. I waxed my wings and shaved my legs once and I was refused service at a BP trying to buy a Pearson’ Salted Nut Roll! I couldn’t imagine what kind of treatment I’d get if I tried to attend a McCain Rally looking the way I do today…
Sheeshe!! What a bunch of elitist jackasses!!
