The Democrat-media complex was hyperventilating after a photo was posted from a Romney-Ryan event in Lancaster, Ohio on Friday of a supposed Romney “supporter” wearing a racist T-shirt.
The photo was posted at Getty Images.
LANCASTER, OH – OCTOBER 12: A supporter of Republican presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Republican vice presidential candidate U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) waits for a campaign event to begin on October 12, 2012 in Lancaster, Ohio. Ryan debated U.S. Vice President Joe Biden the evening before and Romney is scheduled to debate U.S. President Barack Obama for the second time on October 16. (Photo by Jamie Sabau/Getty Images)
Kristinn Taylor at Big Journalism believes its a fake, a liberal plant.
But Robert Stacy McCain wrote Saturday that the man in the photo “is not in fact a Republican, but rather is a plant sent out by the Democrats as a dirty trick.”
McCain says there are three clues that indicate the man in the photo is a plant.
First, he says, “nobody” wears a Romney/Ryan sticker on the back of his t-shirt.
Second, McCain says, “It’s kind of chilly in Ohio this time of year, and the guy’s wearing only a T-shirt, while those around him are wearing coats.”
But the third and most telling clue is that the man remains unidentified.
“A press photographer is going to take a picture like this and make no effort to ID the guy? Nuh-uh,” McCain wrote.
You’ll notice all of the real Romney supporters at the Lancaster event on Friday are in jackets and coats – including Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. But this jacka$$ is wearing a T-shirt.
That doesn’t make sense. He’s most likely a liberal plant. It’s one of the left’s favorite games. But it doesn’t matter to the liberal media. They’ll insist the man is a Romney supporter.
Of course, this same media couldn’t have cared less when Obama supporters were wearing racist pins at the DNC this year.
