Skip to comments.Race incident sees Republican convention expulsions
Posted on 08/29/2012 3:48:30 PM PDT by Fundamentally Fair
Two people were ejected from the Republican National Convention when they threw nuts at a black CNN camera woman and said "this is how we feed animals," the network said Wednesday.
"CNN can confirm there was an incident directed at an employee inside the Tampa Bay Times Forum" on Tuesday, the opening day of a gala at which former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney will accept his party's nomination to challenge President Barack Obama in November's election.

Who let Yahoo into the Convention? Doesn't anyone in charge have any common sense?
Probably either Democrat plants or paultards. The convention is, unfortunately, overrun with paulbots this time around.
Paultards, sometimes indistinguishable from democrats.
This extremely suspicious, it smells, I cannot wait for the perpetrator to be IDed. I think there is an 80% chance that its a outside force and a SETUP!
We all know how real actual racists behave,and this ain’t it
There have been several incidents where left-wingtards (probably occupy type protestors) were playing the role of Republicans getting in front of the cameras, making jerks of themselves to try to make Republicans look like idiots. MSNBC had a whole slew of them on the other night. One of those ‘what do you think’ segments. Look like they dug up any hippie who would claim he was a tea partier.
This story is sourced to a tweet by David Shuster?
David Shuster, the love child of Andrea Mithchell and Keith Olbermann?
Well. it’s gotta be true!
Because that’s what fits their narrative.
This claim against Republicans is about as valid as those "alleged" racist incidents of hanging a noose from someone's dorm room or scrawling a racial epithet in dog manure on some black person's body.
Correct. Racist = one who see race in everything.
It sounds like the camera woman was not standing there alone; she probably was standing in the middle of a crowd of reporters. These people most likely were throwing nuts and directing their comments at the whole crowd, probably as a joke - but not a very good joke. They needed to be thrown out, but “race” probably had nothing to do with what they did (unless they were Democrat plants trying to make GOPers look bad).
I wouldn’t put it past the dirty trickster Robert Gibbs. I heard he was on the convention floor last night.
MSNBC finds every Occupy troll and Paultard and sticks them in front of the camera.
Case in point:
“Two attendees tonight exhibited deplorable behavior. Their conduct was inexcusable and unacceptable. This kind of behavior will not be tolerated,” organizers said.”
No Free Speech at the GOP Convention.
Gosh, with all those reporters and camera crews around, you’d think that there’d be some pictures or some video tape of that incident around ... so where are they?
Maybe by “animals” they were referring to the media. This was a “setup” in as far as CNN sent a black female reporter in the convention on purpose to cry racism as soon as any white male said anything to her. What a crock of BS!
We need to be very wary of false flag operations. This smells.
“So you support allowing people to throw food at a black reporter and talk about feeding the animals? Just trying to get a baseline of you consider acceptable behavior.”
Do you support a political party that dictates what delegates are permitted to say?
If only there was an unbiased organization present that witnessed this event that could give us an unbiased report of exactly what happened - if only.
How long does it take yahoo news to start a 12000 comment race riot? Oh is it 13000 comments now?
Nobody behaves this way unless their purpose is to offend. It is irresponsible and detestable of CNN not to have pursued their duty as journalists and found out whether these were really Republicans or anti-Republican bigots pulling a stunt....are they afraid of the truth? I for one am not.
Republicans/GOP = Elephants
Elephants eat peanuts, or so the saying goes...
What does “feeding the elephants” have to do with any particular reporters skin color?
Does anyone have that “Oh Sheesh, not this XXXX again” GIF?
Of course not, but this incident has no witnesses mentioned, no video, in a building with at least a 1,000 cameras rolling.
That’s because it didn’t happen, any more than the TEA parties spit on the black delation in DC a year or so ago.
Just like that incident, they’ve been forced to make things up out of thin air, and a poor job they’re doing of it too.
No thinking person believes this story.
Same place as the video of Nanzi and the CBC dorks getting spat upon and called racial epithets when they strolled across the mall a coupla years ago?
I don’t disagree. My problem was that someone was trying to make this into a free speech issue, as if people had the right to do this and not be kicked out of the convention.
So the report is forcing the connection between the alleged “animal” reference and its decision to point out the camera operator is Black?
I see you’re kind of new, welcome.
Some posts, like the one you’re referring to, are so stupid it’s better just to move on and not draw attention to them!
Everybody loves the media and CNN is part of the media so it had to be a ‘race incident’...
Yahoo is an MSNBC farm team. If it was some setup artists from the network big leagues, they’d have thrown bananas.
I do. I expect a party to dictate gentlemanly and professional behavior to it's delegates. Have a problem with that?
