Paul Backers Aided Disruption of Ryanís Speech (Code Pink - Ron Paul alliance)
The New York Times ^ | Thursday, August 30, 2012 | Sarah Wheaton

Posted on 08/30/2012 11:37:36 AM PDT by kristinn

The women’s antiwar group CodePink was behind the disruption of Representative Paul D. Ryan’s speech on Wednesday night, but it was in part a product of the Romney campaign’s continuing dispute with Ron Paul supporters.

“An angry Ron Paul person was like, here, take my pass,” said Laura Mills, the 21-year-old CodePink intern who was escorted out of the Tampa Bay Times Forum after interrupting Mr. Paul’s speech.

Ms. Mills and a more seasoned activist, Ann Wright, were just waiting for Mr. Ryan to say something about health care. When he did, they yelled, “Health care, not warfare” and “My body, my choice.” Ms. Mills unfurled a banner that read, “Vagina: Can’t Say It? Don’t Legislate It,” a reference to an abortion debate in Michigan when a female lawmaker was barred from speaking after referring to women’s genitals.

Didn’t CP endorse Paul last election?
I can’t see his views are different from theirs, so why not be in alliance.

Doesn’t surprise me in the least.

I suspect Paul supporters were the ones who threw the peanuts at the CNN camerawoman.

Jodie Evans donated $500 to Paul’s 2008 presidential campaign even as she bundled for Obama.

More proof that Paul and his minions are not conservatives and are nothing but a bunch of Occutard liberals who just want hookers and drugs legalized.

They need to go back to the libertarian party or to the Democrat party.

Just wait until tonight. A lot of internet buzz that Paultards will try to cause major disruptions to Romney.

But by pretending that Ms. Wright was her grandmother, they talked their way into a seating area closer to the floor

Typical libs, lying means nothing to them if they can disrupt and shock people for their demented cause.

It wasn't much of a disruption, I didn't realize anything out of the ordinary had happened until Fox panned the Camera to some chick being drug out of the center. It didn't even faze Ryan, and at the time it occurred it just seemed to be a natural pause for applause.

That little squirrel should have been booted out of the Republican party years ago.

This has been brought up before on previous threads. Perhaps by you. It's struck me that it was a CNN camerawoman who was struck. You'd think there would be video available. I'd love to identify those throwers...

We had a Paultard get on our local Quinn and Rose Radio Show on the drive to work this morning.

Just as the Paultard launched into his "Romney is as Bad as Obama" talking point, Quinn pointed out that this is the first time since Goldwater that the GOP has put a return to the gold standard and audit of the Fed into their platform.

It was also the first time I've heard Quinn actually cut-off a loony tunes caller than try to reason with them even briefly.

I heard that. The Paultard stated that Romney was basically a Communist like Obama, at which point Quinn cut him off.

Ron Paul apparently attracts support from human trash and . . .

Oops, sorry. Show me embarrassed for describing some FReepers.

Yes, the Code Pink person that disrupted Palin’s speech got into the hall with the help of Ron Paul supports (via one of their passes).
