Google the details of that decision. In fact that very topic was discussed in here before with an explanation as to what their "initial" decision was based on. It wasn't racism.

Anyone familiar with twitter knows that in order to follow a person or site, you have to seek them out and agree to follow them. I wonder how apologists will defend this action. Will they bring up Rev. Wright or claim that Gray didn't know?

azcentral.com blogs - Political Insider - PoliticalInsider - Atwitter about Sen. Chuck Gray's twitter feeds
What you posted says that Stormfront was a follower of The Mesa Republican, not the other way around. Do you understand how Twitter works?

Do you have any links to this story other than the one from a self proclaimed gossip blog?

3 prominent people, the first one was the author of the bill, the second one was a congressman who voted for the bill, the 3rd one was an organizer for a rally supporting the bill. Good knows how many rank and file members are Nazi's, KKK members, Stormfront, etc...

I know, right?

Just like so many rank and file members of those who oppose this law are racist MEChA, La Raza, LULAC, or (insert your favorite Latino RACE based organization here) members, etc.

Exactly. I tried to point this out on page one of this thread; but of course was shot down.
