Code Pink Protesters Just Interrupted Mitt Romney's Convention Speech
Business Insider ^ | 8.30.2012 | Grace Wyler

TAMPA, FLA. — A group of protesters from the women's rights group Code Pink interrupted Mitt Romney's speech at the Republican National Convention tonight.

That the protesters were able to obtain credentials to the convention — let alone one that enabled them to get so close to the stage — and that they were able to sneak in huge pink signs is actually a pretty incredible feat given the level of security at the Republican convention.

Everything about the dems is disgusting, classless and corrupt.

I watched the whole thing tonight—I briefly noticed these women, but they certainly didn’t interrupt anything that I was aware of........

I watched it on CSPAN, and it wasn’t all that noticeable.. Maybe some of the commentators on other networks played more of it.

Geez, isn’t that Medea Benjamin? How did she get credentials—she is wearing a day 4 pass.

Security should have had her mug on their phones.

All these ignorant hags did was show how classless they are. A bunch of two bit lesbians with nothing better to do than dress as vaginas and show that their party is more concerned about sex and much less concerned about the nation that gives them the right to make as*es of themselves.

every time I see one of these loons interrupt the Convention speeches(First last night, than tonight) I wonder how the hell these whackos are allowed to get in. You can pretty much tell a liberal whack job from the moment you see them, and this “woman” was carrying a pretty large sign, how could someone have missed that

It actually reflects anti-social mental illness.

a) The act itself will convince NOBODY.

b) It shows they are so desperate and that they fear actual defeat at the polls. Nobody kicks a sleeping dog.

Pathetic, mental cases. This is not political at all.

If someone from the Republican side did that to Obama the MSM would have a hissy fit and say it was racist. I am so sick of these people, God help us.

I understand that they are mad about Obama’s war in Afghanistan, but the vagina thing is a Fluke moment, which means this bunch of lesbians want free contraception. Romney should have thrown them a box of rubbers.

these people are beyond stupid. beyond respect, morals or anything else.

what are we going to get next? rats dressing up in penis costumes?

make a good commercial. just show it all in front of the public that pays little attention to what goes on in politics and let then parade around in their “vagina” costumes and see how that goes well around normal people.

these are obama people and obama approves of this message!

that will work. Sick’Os

blessings, bobo

I’d like to hear from the Paul supporters here on FR that claim to have the “moral high ground” only to see proof that they’re just dupes for the opposition.

How does it feel to be in league with these folks? Still feeling “conservative?”

Link to a short video of them being taken out of the building. From what they video poster says happened, it appears he is also one of them (likely a Paulinista).

How the f@#$ could a gathering of top Republicans not recognize Medea Benjamin?! I listened to the speech so I heard something but it was very short so it sounds like they were allowed in because they actually had credentials but that security was aware and nearby to stop them when they inevitably did their disruptive thing. Maybe it was allowed just to show the pure obnoxiousness of the far left but by design security was ready to shut them down.

Dollars to donuts that they either used false names or they had others with less known names procure the credentials and then handed them off.

Guess it didn’t work out so well for them then, I watched the whole thing live and this is the first I am even hearing about this, so it interrupted nothing.

And not the first time Ron Paul advocates team up with Code Pink traitors...


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adam_Kokesh

“On September 2, 2008, Kokesh spoke at Representative Ron Paul’s Rally for the Republic in St. Paul, Minnesota, where he stated, “While it is our responsibility now to resist tyranny civilly, while we still can, there may come a time when we will say to the powers that be, be it with your blood or ours we have come to water the tree of liberty … who will stand with me?”

On September 4, 2008, Kokesh interrupted Senator John McCain’s acceptance speech of the GOP nomination for President at the Republican National Convention in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Holding a sign reading “McCain Votes Against Vets” on one side and “You can’t win an occupation” on the other,[22] Kokesh yelled, “Ask him why he votes against vets!” A member of the audience grabbed the sign and tore it in two. Kokesh was released shortly after being detained by local police.[23]

On May 28, 2011, Kokesh and other activists participated in a flash mob-silent dance at the Thomas Jefferson Memorial in Washington, D.C. in protest of a recent ruling against dancing in the monument; the activists were arrested by force.[24] A much larger protest the following Saturday, June 4, 2011, organized by Kokesh and Code Pink, involved about 200 protesters and 75 dancers.”

When the GOP changed the rules from under the feet of real Conservatives, they shouldn’t be surprised when they get a bit of blowback.

Protesters with a cause.

Last time I saw Benjamin was at the Marine Recruiting office in Berkley protesting Recruitments. Is she part of the 1% as she doesn't appear to hold down any type of employment, or does she get paid to protest?

On O'Reilly tonight, when they spoke of the balloons, he asked what the DNC might have floating down when Fluke spoke.

A little off center, but it made me think!

I suspect that Code Pink is like most other lefty groups -- all about fundraising.

They each have their list of marks who will tolerate a shake-down for "the cause" -- whatever it might be, in particular.

A close audit by a respected firm would probably reveal any number of "irregularities" and at least a dozen flat "illegalities".
