During a roll call of states at the Republican National Convention yesterday, an attendee was caught on a hot mic praising the moment where Ron Paul’s delegate result was accidentally censored as a result of an audio failure.
As representatives of Georgia read out their delegate results, Ron Paul’s name and result was lost as a result of a microphone failure.
“Well done! Whoever controlled the microphone did a great job,” one of the RNC attendees standing nearby was caught saying as others around him snickered.
The results were repeated, proving that the act of censorship was not deliberate, but the attitude of establishment Republicans in welcoming the sidelining of the Texas Congressman is emblematic of how Paul and his delegates have been treated by the GOP establishment at every turn.
Paul-nominated delegations were intentionally seated in the bleachers and on the fringes of the convention center so as to limit their vocal influence as much as possible in Mitt Romney’s home city.
