The bald-headed man with the shirt that reads "Put the White Back in the White House" may have been a liberal plant.
While liberals online pointed to the photograph as proof of racism among Romney supporters, conservatives wondered whether the man was a plant trying to make Romney look bad.
When Tea Party street activism was at its height, a movement called Crash the Tea Party was formed to infiltrate Tea Party rallies with liberal activists who would create bad optics for the Tea Party by acting out for the media liberal stereotypes of conservatives. Leftist infiltrators wearing Nazi symbols have been driven out of Tea Party events around the country in the past. Why didn’t Getty bother to find out if the man in the photo was a plant?
The Romney campaign issued a statement to Kaczynski denouncing the t-shirt saying it was, “reprehensible and has no place in this election.”
