Code Pink activists are protesting the Republican National Convention in a manner quite unique to the feminist organization-- by dressing up as giant, walking vaginas.
MRC-TV's Dan Joseph went to the event, where he saw signs like "Republican arrogance hurt America more than Al-Qaeda ever did," and "abort s*it Romney and his Taliban party."
The man holding the latter sign explained: "I feel it's an appropriate term to use towards him...He's against gay rights. He's the American Taliban."
When Joseph pressed him, saying, "but you're not going to kill him," the protester replied: "I'm not going to kill him. I wouldn't cry if he died..."
Watch the entire clip, which really must be seen to be believed, below:
One elderly woman wearing a sign that read "my body my vagina," commented: "I understand Mr. Romney is a businessman. But business means profit, and you have to get profit by disenfranchising or taking away [from] people who aren't part of the profit."
Another woman wearing what has been described as a "vulgar" vagina costume boldly declared: "We need to call attention to the fact that we are here, and we count, and we are actually the majority in this country..."
Medea Benjamin, Code Pink co-founder, explained to the Daily Beast:
One of the things we have found is the surest way to make the police go away is try to get your picture in front of them wearing a vagina. They will blush and disappear. The whole horse brigade will leave. It is so funny that they get very intimidated by our vagina costumes. They also laugh and take their own photos of us. That’s what we try to do—make our points, but in a way that’s not too angry or dull. We try to be creative and satirical and try new ways to get the message across.
Florida-based shark-tank.net interviewed a number of the protesters as they assembled their outlandish costumes. Watch their reactions as the interviewer asks how they feel about the "supposed" war on women:
