Code Pink Disrupts GOP’s VP Speech – Again

From a highly amused reporter at The Hill:

Code Pink disrupts Ryan speech, ushered out to chants of ‘USA!’

By Jordy Yager | Wednesday Aug 29, 2012

TAMPA, Fla. — Two protesters from Code Pink disrupted Rep. Paul Ryan’s (R-Wis.) convention speech on Wednesday night and were ushered out of the hall as tens of thousands of Republicans chanted, “U.S.A.!”

The two women were protesting Ryan’s views on military and healthcare issues, complaining that the Republican vice presidential nominee does not devote enough money in his budget proposal to government-run health services.

They do make a good case for more spending on mental health services.

In the middle of Ryan’s address, retired Col. Ann Wright unfurled a banner that read, “Fund Healthcare not Warfare!” and began shouting the same refrain. At the same time Laura Mills screamed, “My body, my choice!” while holding a banner that read, “Vagina. Can’t say it? Don’t legislate it.”

The women attempted to drape the banners over the second-level seating in the Tampa Bay Times Forum, but were thwarted by convention staffers who snatched them away.

You would think that being dressed up like vaginas would have tipped off the convention security. (We’re joking. These two protesters weren’t in their vagina costumes last night. At least we don’t think they were.)

Ryan did not appear to be ruffled and paused as the crowd drowned out the protesters with the “U.S.A.!” chants. Ryan immediately picked up his speech after the applause died down.

So The Hill’s headline is inaccurate.

Several people in the crowd screamed back at the women. One man yelled, “Get them out of here!” Another man waved them goodbye as they were ushered out.

So they managed to get some attention, which is their only reason to live. After all, as our grandmother might have said, ‘some women would dress up like giant vaginas and walk down the street, if they thought it would get anyone to look at them.’

In any case, this seems to have become a tradition for the harridans of Code Pink. Back in 2008 two of their members continued their own ‘War On Women’ by trying to shout down the Republican’s female VP candidate, Sarah Palin as she was speaking at the GOP convention in St. Paul.

Indeed, as we were the first to note, one of these Code Pink attack dogs was also one of Obama’s tops bundlers in 2008, Code Pink’s co-founder, Jodi Evans. Naturally, that detail was never mentioned by our one party news media.

In fact, the few reports there were on the incident typically did not even note that these were fulltime professional protesters. Instead, they were portrayed as spontaneous grassroots demonstrators.

    It is doubtful that they can make either love or war.

    surely retired colonel Ann Wright must be on two U.S. threat categories and why no one threw her down
    see her strapped on pistol poking out between her legs.

    col Ann Wright slept her way to the top.

    If they are claiming that the goverment shouldn’t regulate anything to do with vaginas, then shouldn’t they then be fighting the goverement forcing contraceptive coverage, fertility treatments, and everything else in the horror show aka Obamacare? Oh wait, code pinks are bunch of liberal/socialist hypocrites who believe that what ever they think is correct and everyone else is a bigot/racist/sexist/homophobic/islamophobic evil puppy kicker.
