From the moment I arrived Tampa to attend the Republican National Convention, it was clear that I was now entering a police state-like setting that featured riot police, the county Sheriff’s office and National Guard- all of whom were wearing full military fatigues and armed with assault rifles and other assorted small arms. A good part of the downtown Tampa area was cordoned off by iron interlocking fencing that was specifically designed to keep crowds out. This kind of security was expected given all of the property destruction and violence that has been associated with the Occupy Movement and other groups who have been planning to descend on Tampa during the convention.
Another organization that always shows up in advance of these types of political events is Code Pink. The Pink-os do not disappoint with their tactless attention-grabbing stunts, and they may have outdone themselves this time around. I stopped my car as I was driving by their protest to get the footage- the Pinkos were wearing home-made Vagina costumes proclaiming “Read My Lips.”
Yes indeed! Pink , human-size vagina outfits. Watch the clip-
