I really don't have an issue with people wanting to change things in their life if they feel things are bad... but forcing yourself on someone else and yelling in their face or calling our soldiers terrorists; that is uncalled for. And giving your support to terrorists fighting against OUR TROOPS is the ultimate disgrace.
Four CODEPINK women arrested at 4 p.m. in St. Paul in act of civil disobedience - I love how they actually list their phone numbers... just in case someone wants to call.
"We are proud of the CODEPINK women who did civil disobedience to show their outrage at the Bush and McCain policies and the nomination of Sarah Palin," said co-founder Medea Benjamin. "In the face of over 100 riot police they put their bodies on the line as a show of their determination to elect leaders in this country who stand for peace."And I wonder how much more proud they would have been if those bodies had actually been harmed or in some way these women became martyrs? Does it remind you of any other group... say... those who tie bombs to women and children in order to "move their cause forward". Their agenda is not for peace... they are the same as Jesse Jackson and the like. If they got their way... it would all end for them and they can't have that... their self-inflicted misery would be washed away and they would be forgotten.
to get right up to the podium near VP candidate Sarah Palin.
Singing "Sarah Palin, we know what you stand for, you'll save a fetus in the womb and send it off to war," a couple of dozen pink-clad members of Code Pink, a women-led peace organization, took a short protest march this afternoon from the St. Paul Hotel to Rice Park.
Group co-founder Jodie Evans complained that police response to her group's protests this week have been "snarky" and "violent" including an arrest of one member Monday night. She also said mounted police pushed her group away from Palin's Minneapolis hotel Wednesday with their horses.
"How scary do we look? It's a really mean way to treat women dressed in pink," Evans said.
First of all... these two ladies ARE scary. Look a them!
Second of all... if wearing pink indicates that you are not scary... how long will it take criminals to start wearing pink and claiming in court that they were "treated poorly" because they were "wearing pink" and CLEARLY that means they are good people and we shouldn't have to worry about them doing something wrong.Oh... and here are a couple of examples. These two dudes truly ARE NOT as scary as the pictures of the Code Pink "ladies" and they ARE committing crimes... so how do you expect us to feel when these scary women come at us yelling and waving their arms at us?
And what about this? How would you feel having a woman yelling at you while pushing her hands painted red representing blood right up against your face? Some would just be angry but truly... this is a frightening picture and this "lady" is threatening another person.
THAT IS SCARY... and it wouldn't matter if this woman was wearing what she has on or a little pink jumper suit. She is a threat and she is scary. And I did watch the video to this and it was ended fast... but even a brief moment with someone coming at you head on, waving their hands and yelling things is scary.
