Mia Love Speech: Recieves Twitter Support After Racist and Sexist Remarks; CNN Camerawoman Speaks Out, 'Not Surprised' by Attack
The shocking hate that Mia Love received is apparently backfiring.
Love, a rising Republican star who spoke at the Republican National Convention, also a Republican congressional candidate, became the center of attack.
Reports say that perpetrators vandalizd her Wikipedia page overnight and left racist and sexist remarks.
The attack comes as Democrats and liberal media outlets criticize or downplay the GOP's effort at showcasing diversity at their convention in Tampa, according to Franchise Herald.
The haters called her digusting slurs like "dirty, worthless whore and a "House N-----."
Hotair.com posted a photo of what some people had to say on Twitter. One said, "@MiaBLove they smile in your face. Money grabbers backstabbers. Remember that you are just a house n---- playing pupper for massa."
Another said "Kill yourself."
Franchise Herald reported that Love is the African American and Mormon Mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah. She is slated to become the first black woman Republican elected to Congress if she can beat Utah Democrat Rep. Jim Matheson.
Matt Vespa, a writer for Hotair.com, believed in what Love said in her speech.
"She is living proof that the America Dream is still alive. However, it always amazes me how the left can't stand people of color having conservative principles. Mia Love embodies hope and change, which isn't bolstered by a bed of hot air. She worked for the American Dream, whereas Barack Obama and the Democratic Party want to destroy it under the thumb of a hyper-regulatory progressive state. It's because Mia Love is black, conservative, and successful that the political left needs to smear and destroy her. She's an aberration concerning their narrative that government is here to take care of you-ALL of you," he wrote.
Twitter also showed support for Love.
Susana Martinez, Condi Rice, Arthur Davis and Mia Love should all be strong off of haterade this morn. It means you are effective
No one should be surprised by the way liberals have treated MiaLove. Liberals love black people, as long as they do exactly as they say.
Loved Mia Love's presentation! She is a great example for today's young women; smart, educated, successful, family centered. Girls need it!
@patriot32 I hope women are watching what the left are doing to MiaLove. Their war on Black Women who thinks for herself is despicable.
Love gave a speech yesterday night at the RNC which sparked furious debate.
According to Franchise Herald, her speech focused on the American Dream attained by her parents, who emigrated from Haiti with "ten dollars in their pocket."
"President Obama's version of America is a divided one - pitting us against each other based on our income level, gender, and social status. His policies have failed! We are not better off than we were 4 years ago, and no rhetoric, bumper sticker, or campaign ad can change that," she said.
"Mr. President I am here to tell you we are not buying what you are selling in 2012," Love added.
These racist outbursts come on the heel of shocking news this morning.
A black CNN camerawoman was pelted with nuts at the convention. The nuts were thrown by two attendees who said, "This is what we feed animals."
The camerawoman, Patricia Carroll, 34, revealed her name to a reporter with the Maynard Institute for Journalism Education, the New York Daily News reported.
"I hate that it happened, but I'm not surprised at all," said Carroll, an Alabama native.
"This is Florida, and I'm from the Deep South," she said. "You come to places like this, you can count the black people on your hand. They see us doing things they don't think I should do."
This also comes after sparked debate about vice-presidential candidate Paul Ryan's black ex-girlfriend went into headlines.
