Code Pink is a left-wing group that made its name on anti-war activism in the aughts. So you’d think with two wars and an increasingly illegal kinetic military action going on the aging protestesses would have their hands full demonstrating for world peace, right? Wrong. They’ve graduated to posing minor inconveniences to Republican presidential hopefuls in the name of “gay rights” and “women’s reproductive rights”:
The former Minnesota governor was signing copies of his memoir Courage to Stand in San Francisco when two women representing Reproductive Rights and anti-war group Code Pink opened manila envelopes, showering Pawlenty in pink confetti.
(Given his past track record, we predict Pawlenty will have a witty comeback ready by Monday.)
As she was being escorted out by San Francisco police, Code Pink campaigner and glitter thrower Nancy Mancias said, “Where’s your courage to stand for gay rights and for women’s reproductive rights?” adding, “Welcome to San Francisco!”
I expect Code Pink to stay focused on gay issues and abortion once Republican is elected to the White House in 2012.
