Pro-choice protesters accost delegates at the Republican National Convention as they arrive to party with country star Rodney Atkins.
TAMPA, Fla. -- Giant, walking vaginas have descended upon the Republican National Convention.
Several demonstrators from the feminist group Code Pink wore frilly pink costumes while others adorned with cardboard cutouts resembling the sexual organ were milling about 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 premiere of an anti-Occupy Wall Street movie canceled Sunday and Monday due to weather, it wasnt 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 baseballs 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.

And here's a quick link to Pookie's toons so you can see some fun commentary on the photos. http://www.therightreasons.net/index.php?/topic/42108-todays-toons-83012/ (I hope that my re-posting is okay with you, Pookie.)
So yeah. Who doesn't love pictures of vagina costumes at 10:30 in the morning????
A giant douche bag costume would better suit the protestors.
Anuses in disguise.
They’re so utterly amoral that it doesn’t even *occur* to them to be ashamed.
A couple of code pink were escourted out at the convention when they tried to unveil a pink banner.
What a bunch of.....oh never mind.
The clothes make the woman.
Yes; Fluking is great for all the guys who don't have to pay for it, and it's everywhere now.
So many "liberated" women, and so little time.....HA !
These people need to get a life and a job.
woops. I did try a few titles but must need to hone my searching skills. My apologies for the redundancy.
What a bunch of.....oh never mind.
I'd love to see a bunch of guys dressed as penises show up and chase them around...
“Respect women”? How & why? Especially since these protesters have no respect for themselves. Disgusting group of useless people.
A cunning stunt if ever there was one.
You left out ‘stupid’ too ... they don’t know the difference in a vagina and the vulva, and they calim to be females!
They must be the out-of-work and unemployed Vaginas.
I understand there is a good market for their product in Las Vegas.
Maybe they should relocate.
As a youth I spent many hours examining the difference on live specimens.
Romney/Ryan should send them a check in thanks.
Shades of Patch Adams
Now that would be funny...xxx rated, but funny
Unlike many other conventions where delegates are greeted by the real deal...
I had to laugh out loud on this one!
Seriously, taste, decorum, and public spectacle are concepts like honesty are not part of the current Democratic Party campaign process. It is all about shock and awe and trying to get media air time in the hope of pumping up loosing election number for Dear Leader.
I wonder if the designed those costumes in their own self image? :>)
SOmehow I don’t think these women have any difficulty having their vaginas left alone.
“I am all for young, pretty liberal Women coming out...”
You don’t want to wait too long for this to happen. The heavens and the earth might pass away first.
The costumes were most likely from performances of the Vagina Monologues.
I cannot understand how a woman would want to reduce herself to a vagina. At one of the colleges that was putting on the play, a group of guys got together and dressed themselves as giant penises and went to greet the vaginas.
Egads. How low civilization has sunk.
“Read my lips. Leave my vagina alone”
Couldn’t they wait for Halloween to do that? Maybe I’ll go as a vagina for Halloween.
A cunning stunt.
Stay out of my wallet and I’ll stay out of your...
Who do they think they are...men?
So, you think that woman is nothing but a vagina? That says a lot about you.
I haven’t run into many people on FreeRepublic with a sense of humor, lately. I’m afraid that it rubbed off on me. I have been spending so much time, fending off attacks, that I just assumed that your post was another one. Sorry.
There was a good post last night that gave a real laugh. It was an article about the poisonous venom of a snake being used to treat erectile dysfunction and some freeper remarked, that the success depended on when rigor mortis set in.
I thought it was hysterical, my husband wasn’t quite as amused. Maybe I just needed a good laugh. There hasn’t been much to smile about around Free Republic, lately.
WHERE IS BILL CLINTON? He would be in heaven here.
I wish the Republicans would set up an “X-Treme Democrat Laff Cam” camera, with a dedicated screen on the convention floor. It would show nothing but the antics of Dem protesters trying to “protest” the convention.
It could be a great way to to tie the leftists kooks at the convention to the leftist kooks in the White House and Congress.
“There hasnt been much to smile about around Free Republic, lately.”
Too many false-flag posters.
When did we, as Americans, stop whipping the tar out of people like that?
I don’t know if it is even “false flag” posters. I think that the Paulers actually convinced a lot of unhappy, single issue voters, that the Paulers were the only true conservatives. The Paulers use the term, “grassroots” to describe their effort to take over the GOP, they make it a “we” against “them” thing and then go about smearing all other candidates as part of the “them”.
We saw it all during the election. There were more smears of the candidates coming out of the Ron Paul Campaign than there were from Romney. I actually think that Romney used some of the Ron Paul smears to take out his opponents. Ron Paul displayed a visceral hatred for Rich Santorum because of his strong stand against abortion and he didn’t like Newt Gingrich or Cain or Perry, very much, either. It showed in his eyes.
I haven’t paid much attention to Ron Paul or his supporters. Sometimes he gets things right; sometimes he’s the mayor of Crazytown.
What I have seen is a large number of posters who are clearly leftists pretending to be something else. Some of them have “since” dates reaching back to 1998, which makes me think that someone knows how to hack this site.
We have to pay attention to them in WA because they have been working over time to take over the party here, and succeeding. Many of our candidates are closet Libertarians.
The problem with that goes beyond the obvious of conflict with social conservative interests. The problem is that many, who call themselves Libertarians, don’t understand what a Libertarian is. We have a whole lot of union members, public sector and private sector union members, who claim to be libertarians and they run for office as conservative Republicans. Then they stand up for the SEIU.
They have been pulling the same thing that they tried at the convention at our state and county conventions, for years. We have one state congressman, who is pro-legalization of marijuana, anti-abortion, anti-gay marriage and pro-government unions because he is a member of one. oh, and he’s a libertarian/Republican.
And why, precisely, do the members of Code Pink want to go out of their way to encourage a popular perception that they are dumb [plural vulgarity for female genitalia omitted in the interest of family friendliness and work safety]?
The first called me a F’n Male Pig, didn’t like my sign. The second called me a lot of bad words when I told her that pink wasn't her color, Red was.
