30. Not just any C ode Pinker - that was the founder Medea Benjamin
I'm surprised they even let her within a mile of the convention, let alone inside.

33. Being removed, how about being assaulted.
They can escort her out, but putting their hands over her mouth like that is an assault.

9. How did Code Pink get into the convention???
I think it's awesome that they got past security thugs.

Yeah, I trust my national security to a bunch that can't even run security on their own private circle jerk.

15. Wow. That's horrible. Its a poster-ready image!
What was she doing? Was she just holding a sign or was she screaming?
Does anyone know who that person is and if she was arrested?

As a side note, I was really scratching my head last week when people on this board were attacking the Code Pinkers who showed up at the DNC.

Yeah, I was too. We always need some people to speak real truth to the types of Corporate Enslavers that show up at both conventions.

34. At first I thought it was someone getting "saved" on the convention floor
And honestly, I didn't bat an eye. YOu'd figure that would be commonplace at a Repug convention.

Edited on Thu Sep-04-08 01:20 AM by kwolf68
I agree she needed to be removed. The RNC is a private function and they don't need distractors.

I wouldn't want some asshole like james dobson at the DNC yelling and screaming while our people were giving speeches. So they should be allowed to give speeches without distraction, as horrible as they may be.

These people YES are dangerous and bordering on fascist, but I don't think it's because the Code Pink lady got bounced.

48. She represents every American woman...
...and he represents every rethuglican male.

No woman can truly be represented by the thug party, unless they're willing to accept a deferential role to white men. Plain and simple, there it is.
