Illinois Republicans remove Trump delegate with 'whitepride' social media handle.

This stuff is so commonplace that it's hardly even surprising anymore.
On the upside, Herr Drumpf has emboldened racists/bigots/homophobes to speak their minds, thus providing evidence for anyone who claims the GOP is not a hate-group.

GOP officials said Gayne posted something on Facebook on the opening day of the convention that included a photo suggesting law enforcement officers were prepared to shoot African-American protesters and used a racial slur.

In May, a Tribune profile of Trump delegates elected in the March 15 primary revealed that Gayne used the handle "whitepride" on social media.

"With all the racism going on today, I'm very proud to be white. Just like black people are proud to be black and now, as white people, whenever we say something critical we're punished as if we're racists. I'm tired of it. I'm very proud," Gayne said then in an interview.
