I was also there and thought it was a staged for media event.

How odd it was that those seats became available just as these poster ladies came in. It was just too perfect.

Who was the photographer who was helping her unroll her signs??

Liar or plant, it makes no difference. Her operation was a success, mission accomplished with a flair on national cable TV.

This is what we are going to have to learn to handle, to resist, but not be part of the story.

Your right, the guy should not have taken the sign, he should have just waited for the authorities to handle it. He made a staged event that much more than it should have been. I admit that I might have done the same thing, but we are going to have to learn that everything is on video now and the media is not on the conservative nor republican side.

Nor on the side of the truth.

She wants an invite to the White House Beer Garden.

You guys are so stupid... It does not matter why she had the poster or what she was doing with the poster... all that matters is that some bully attacked another human being. Now listening to what you are saying, or the message that you are conveying is that it is alright to attack another person if they do not agree with your belief... which is true Nazism

I noticed someone who looked like a still photographer (a young lady) setting up for a shot of Johnson, then walking over to Johnson as she began getting her poster ready to show... and then the guy comes up and takes the poster away.
Total, 100% set up.


This woman lied!

Has any one of credibility come forward to say they saw the n-word sign? I was there and I never saw it. There was a Hitler sign but that was outside the building.

Why did she have a Rosa Parks sign anyway? What did Rosa Parks have to do with the issues at hand?

I wonder why was the woman's friend applauding when the police escorted her out of the building? Was it because they succeeded it creating a youTube event? Was it because their mission was accomplished?

Someone has deliberately created racism where there was none. Your second video clearly shows that the man who grabbed the sign was escorted out the opposite door by police. Kiran Chetry stated twice that the man was arrested for attempted assault but she allowed the woman to spew her false allegations of racism for over six minute. Has CNN made any attempt to reveal the truth?

Some people take pleasure in causing racial conflict. WHY?
God have mercy on our nation.

I have two points. My first is that I think the guy that took the poster was a plant with her and it was all set up. Everything just went too smoothly.

My second point is that if he wasn't a plant what he did was wrong but to call it Nazism....that's pretty harsh, flame thrower.

If you would have immediately reported such a sign as the one from Detroit, why didn't you report the Obama = Hitler sign right outside the Hillsboro town hall? It was being carried by a guy standing right next to a guy with a St. Louis Tea Party sign.

Just sayin'.

Jim,

I was AT the McCaskill town hall doing first-hand reporting. I wore my press pass. Identifying me as a blogger. Did you?

You never answered my question. Why didn't you report the Hitler sign? What made this one different from the other? If this Hitler sign was not a plant, how can you possibly support your claim that the other one was?
