NEW VIDEO of Puerto Rican Delegate Zoraida Fonalledas Being Taunted with Chants of USA!

30 Aug

There’s an on going debate as to whether chants of USA USA USA were directed toward Puerto Rican GOP Delegate Zoraida Fonalledas.  Many believe, including myself, that these chants were racially motived and totally uncalled for.

There is no doubt, that Ms. Fonalledas was disrespected and subjected to racial bigotry.

In the video, just prior to Ms. Fonalledas being introduced, it appears that calm is restored on the convention floor. No booing or USA chants can be heard. When Republican National Committee Chairman, Reince Preibus introduces her as being from Puerto Rico, the boos begin. When Ms. Fonalledas begins to speak in her Spanish accent, we hear chants of USA USA USA for the first time.

For all you naysayers, believing that these chants were intended for fellow delegates, is totally ridiculous.
Americans hating on each other by screaming USA, is idiotic.

Chants of USA are reserved for two occasions
1. to express patriotism
2. to express ethnic hatred.

In the case of patriotism, the Olympic games would be a an ideal time to chant USA!

In the case of  ethnic hatred, the  implication of the chant is  – THEY ARE NOT AMERICAN CITIZENS.

Ms. Fonalledas, a Puerto Rican, speaking in a thick Spanish accent as a result of English being her 2nd
language, was not received, nor welcomed, as an American Citizen, and some delegates let her know it,
by chanting USA! USA! USA!
