Is glitter the new weapon-of-choice for the Left? Based on the (lack of) police response to these sparkling assaults, one can assume that ‘glitterings’ will probably continue to occur and with greater frequency.
Four weeks ago Newt Gingrich was covered in glitter at a book signing… Last week Tim Pawlenty was targeted for ‘glittering’ by a gay rights activist in San Francisco. Today, in her home state of Minnesota, after speaking to a crowd of enthusiastic supporters at the RightOnline conference, presidential candidate Michele Bachmann was the latest conservative to be ‘glittered’ by a protester.
The attackers see nothing wrong with their actions. But one wonders what the reaction would be if someone doused First Lady Michelle Obama with glitter or decided to deliver a ‘rainbow of pride’ to Nancy Pelosi? It is safe to assume that the perpetrator would probably be hit with a Taser, wrestled to the ground, cuffed, and then hauled off to jail.
The three recent strikes against conservatives have yielded not a single arrest. Instead, the attackers usually end up on television, or in the newspaper.
The liberal organization GetEQUAL is promoting these attacks on any politician who disagrees with their position on gay marriage. In addition, they are offering to train anyone who might be interested in learning how to attack a politician.

GetEQUAL is supporting anyone who wants to join the “Glitterati” — who wants to let anti-LGBT politicians know that their hate is not welcome in political debates, whether it’s for President of the United States or President of the School Board.
Sign up below to volunteer for the “Glitterati” — we’ll connect you with folks who can coach you through the process of planning a glitter action wherever you live.
