    GOP ejects people who threw nuts at camerawoman

    TAMPA -- There are tensions just below the surface at the Republican convention.The GOP ejected two people from last night's session for allegedly throwing nuts at a black CNN camerawoman, and saying, "This is how we feed animals."
    Glad that the Republican party is tolerating none of the racism that a few people seem to be displaying.

    Well done!!

    Some Twitter users are casting it as a racial issue. But it should be noted that some Republicans dislike many media members, regardless of color.
    Thought this was worth highlighting as well. Not that it makes it much better.

    If it was intended as a racial remark, it's hard to believe that this was anything other than an attempt to make the GOP look bad. If you truly support the party, you're not going to run up to a reporter and do something like this.

    Too bad it wasn't caught on camera so that the remarks could be put with a face; if not to be known by the rest of the world, to be known by their family and friends

    I knew there were going to be "false flag" accusations.

    Look, Republicans. Some of your supporters are racist dip****s. It's just statistical reality, in any sufficiently-sized crowd there's going to be some. That didn't stop you from painting OWS as all being a bunch of criminals wanting handouts and whatever. Tell me again why I shouldn't paint your entire party with this?

    Racism? Oh I get it, feeding the monkey peanuts right; isn't that the stereotype? Uh.....monkeys don't eat peanuts, so where's the racism? You're making **** up now.

    I can't the "back hand" in the article also.

    Funny, all the people pointing fingers and screaming about the MO of these idiots, especially when we don't know anything about who they are or where they came from.

    Let's point fingers and cast blame and lower ourselves to the same level of discourse as the assholes who got kicked out, though. That's surely the best option here.

    The fact that they threw stuff at journalists documenting the convention is what is despicable. Attention children, you don't throw stuff at people for no reason.

    GOP needs to wake up to the growing asshole mentality creeping into their party.

    But...racism is all on the Left. Rush said so.

    I'm actually not sure whether he directed it at the person because they were black, or they worked for CNN. It's not like TPers have any respect for any media that's not Fox. Whatever his motivations, it's a pretty classless display of disrespect. Good on the Republicans for kicking his ass out.
