2012 Republican Convention: Protesters Dressed As Vaginas Greet Delegates (Video)

TAMPA -- Giant, walking vaginas have descended upon the Republican National convention.

Several demonstrators from Code Pink, a feminist group, wore frilly pink costumes while others adorned with cardboard cutouts resembling the sexual organ were milling about on Sunday looking for Republicans.

A Florida website called Shark-Tank.net captured video of some of them during their preparation (video below). The protesters carried signs saying such things as: “Read my lips. Leave my vagina alone,” and argued that pro-life Republicans are waging a war against women.

But with the official proceedings, along with two Lynyrd Skynyrd concerts and the premier of an anti-Occupy Wall Street Movie canceled on Sunday and Monday due to weather, it wasn’t until Sunday night at The Welcome Event that the protesters found a large group of Republicans to confront.

As several thousand conventioneers arrived in buses at Tropicana Field, an indoor stadium where baseball’s Tampa Bay Rays play, they were met by about 400 protesters – some of whom were in their vagina costumes. By that time, though, convention-goers hardly took notice of the crowd, and well-armed police and military personnel kept the demonstrators away from the party inside the stadium.

Inside, delegates chanted the Pledge of Allegiance and sang along to "God Bless America." Many wore red, white and blue, and some dressed in unusual costumes of their own: cavalry uniforms, kilts and, Tampa Bay being the home of the NFL’s Buccaneers, more than a few pirate outfits.

There were even a few Democrats roaming the floor, some obtaining credentials through the St. Petersburg/Clearwater Film Commission.

The show included short sets from Shannon Magrane (11th season of American Idol) and Karla Davis (second season of The Voice).

Headlining was Rodney Atkins singing songs about “freedom, family and the good Lord – and the right to bear arms.”

Keeping his set family-friendly throughout, Atkins even cleaned up some fairly harmless lyrics (“bustin’ our asses ”became “bustin’ our backs”) and earned some of the loudest applause when toasted “the men and the women at home and abroad defending this country” before launching into his song "If You’re Going Through Hell (Before The Devil Even Knows)."

So who are the 'normal' ones here that represent real American values?

code pink is mostly human detritus. It is to the human race what that stuff that you must occasionally scrub from the bottom of a bathtub is to a human body.

I like the men with them dressed as vaginas. Totally appropriate. Maybe they can put those pictures on their resumes? As to the harridan with the long gray hair... no need to worry, honey. NO ONE wants to bother with your vagina.

Seriously, if you are willing to humiliate yourself in this fashion... what won't you do?

with cardboard cutouts resembling the sexual organ

Some might say that it is a REPRODUCTIVE organ, but the hairy legged feminists don't believe in reproduction. "Abortion now, abortion tomorrow, abortion forever" just like the segregationists screeched.

Someone really needs to inform them that Clinton is going to be at the DNC convention, not the RNC. They've gone and gotten themselves all wet for nothing.

In other words, Barack Obama’s male voting base has made their way to Tampa.

So typical of the hollyweird tripe. They didn't chant. Chanting involves repeating something over and over. They recited the Pledge of Allegiance.

Trashy and embarrassing Meanwhile many, many, many people have no jobs or are paying record gas prices ($4.22 for me) and food costs are up too and these women have nothing better to do than dress up like women’s body parts? How do these women help anyone.
