RNC Former MSNBC and Current TV anchor, David Shuster, tweeted an incident that occurred at the Republican National Convention that perfectly captured the racial, classist and elitist undertones of the entire scripted affair, reports TalkingPointsMemo.com.

Though CNN initially refused to fully address the incident, a network official eventually confirmed to TPM that it did take place and were working with convention officials to address the issue.

Throughout the convention, the theme “We Built It,” was spoken frequently to challenge a comment made by President Barack Obama that has been taken completely out of context.

“If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help,” said Obama. “There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.

“The point is,” he continued “that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together.”

From Rick Santorum and Chris Christie, to Ann Romney and Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, the discussions centered around kicking senior citizens out of homes so that they could be more “independent,” to “telling hard truths” about the economy that “coddled” Americans didn’t want to hear.

In short, the entire night was centered around the GOP’s version of throwing peanuts to “animals,” and attempting to sell it in a way that they appreciated it and loved the taste.

As the RNC marches on, GOP presidential nominee Romney must do a better job of being more inclusive of all Americans if he hopes to be successful in November. He must speak to those voters who don’t throw food at Black women as if we’re zoo animals and who would never condescendingly force feed the myth that businessmen build their success on their own and that mere workers should be grateful to come along for the ride.
