Keeping It Classy: Protesters Throw Condoms At Carly Fiorina

Filed under: General — Dana @ 1:53 pm



[guest post by Dana]

While Carly Fiorina campaigned at a tailgate party in Iowa yesterday, she found herself being pelted with condoms by protesters. Note that the condoms thrown were no ordinary over-the-counter prophylactics, but were Planned Parenthood’s own special brand:

PROPER ATTIRE® condoms, available in Planned Parenthood health centers, are just one example of new condoms available to consumers. With fifteen glamorous styles, PROPER ATTIRE condoms are a safe, fun and stylish way to protect against pregnancy and STDs.

Protesters, still studiously ignoring the abject depravity of the CMP videos, chose to focus on what they believe to be Fiorina’s debate video misrepresentation as they sought to put her in her place:

The protesters, some of whom were affiliated with the women’s health group and others who were supporters, were dressed in pink and waved pink pom-poms as they followed the Republican presidential candidate around the tailgate, chanting “Carly Fiorina offsides for telling lies” and “women are watching and we vote.”

Because nothing says Take me seriously! like a pom-pom waving woman dressed up as birth control:

Nonetheless, Fiorina remained calm and poised in the face of such classless buffoonery, and in classic Fiorina-style, took advantage of the opportunity presented to her:

Joining the protesters was a patient of Planned Parenthood, Cindy Shireman, who pushed through the crowd to confront Fiorina directly and told her she doesn’t support women’s health.

“Oh I support women’s health,” Fiorina quipped back, while grasping Shireman’s hand.

“You need to ask yourself some questions [like] why is it that fetuses are butchered alive to harvest their brains. Why?”

The questions, of course, present themselves: If birth control is a throw-away item (just like a baby!) as demonstrated, then why on earth are taxpayers forced to subsidize Planned Parenthood?? Further, can you imagine the howls of outrage if Hillary Clinton was pelted with condoms??

  1. Hello.

    Dana (86e864)

  2. what a nasty woman

    happyfeet (831175)

  3. this is why they call her snarly carly i guess

    happyfeet (831175)

  4. You’ll need to qualify your comment, happyfeet.

    Dana (86e864)

  5. On the upside, though, points for referring to her as a “woman”… Baby steps.

    Dana (86e864)

  6. baby steps!

  7. HF is a nasty, bigoted, hate-filled person. And by now, nearly everyone knows it.

  8. “I understand we may disagree on things. You need to ask yourself some questions. Why is it that fetuses are aborted alive to butcher their brains? Why? You ought to also ask, you should look at some facts. How much money does Planned Parenthood give to Democrat candidates? This a big political rig,” Fiorina said, jabbing her finger in Shireman’s face.

    planned parenthood doesn’t really give all that much money to Democrats, carlycakes

    in the 2014 cycle it was just… $588,918 – total

    ok you win all the pinocchios

    happyfeet (831175)

  9. Please explain what in this post causes you to call her a nasty woman, happyfeet. I would like to think that our discussions here are of substance rather than just childish name calling. I think that is what our host would like his blog to be about. Substantive discussion, debate and challenge. (Although, a woman dressed up like birth control is the very antithesis of something substantive….)

    Dana (86e864)

  10. Cue cutesy comment about tasty cupcakes in 5,4,3…

    Gazzer (124d91)

  11. Carly is not my cup of TEA since she’s been squishy especially in social matters prior to this election cycle. But when the evil abortion and baby parts selling supporters come out with their hate-filled screeds, I’ll stand up for Carly, too.

    John Hitchcock (36559e)

  12. the reason i think this post shows carly to be a nasty woman is cause she’s indecorously screeching about fetuses and mindlessly regurgitating dishonest propaganda

    it’s just disgusting to see – why?

    cause of this country has real – horrifically real – problems but snarly carly is opportunistically jumping on this extremist propaganda bandwagon instead of presenting a real agenda that would address the actual challenges our pitiful little country is faced with

    it’s a big red flag and says a lot about her lack of character I think and I will never vote for her cause she’s so poopy

    happyfeet (831175)

  13. Again, hf, just go over to the Democrat side. You know you want to.

    John Hitchcock (36559e)

  14. You see, hf, you are calling good evil and evil good. There’s something in the Bible covering that exact topic, and it’s not good news for you.

    John Hitchcock (36559e)

  15. oh my goodness no way jose

    happyfeet (831175)

  16. happyfeet, methinks it’s you who’ve earned the Pinocchio’s. You stated:

    planned parenthood doesn’t really give all that much money to Democrats, carlycakes

    According to your link, they didn’t give “all that much money” to democraps, they gave ALL the money to democraps. Not one red cent to Republicans. So your response was….disingenuous to say the least.

    Hoagie (f4eb27)

  17. in the 2014 cycle it was just… $588,918 – total

    An organization which is demanding government subsidies has a cool half-million to spend buying politicians.

    JVW (ba78f9)

  18. i don’t think PP proper can give any donations at all this is their PAC Mr. JVW

    happyfeet (831175)

  19. Maybe the real “war on women” is by the people who think it is OK to assault a woman if she says something out of line.

    Maybe that’s just me.

    egd (1ad898)

  20. Now that EPWJ has been moderated (if not outright banned by now), it’s hf’s turn in the moderation dungeon. That would go a long way in staying on-topic and “keeping it classy”.

    John Hitchcock (36559e)

  21. On a side note, this is a very misleading description of what took place: Fiorina said, jabbing her finger in Shireman’s face.

    The video at CNN does not reflect this at all. Rather it shows two women in very close proximity disagreeing over a very important issue and one of them using her hands in a normal way to emphasize her point. If it was the PP supporter using her hands in the same manner, I would also object to the misleading “jabbing her finger in Fiorina’s face…”

    Shame on CNN.

    Dana (86e864)

  22. An organization which is demanding government subsidies has a cool half-million to spend buying politicians.

    But JVW, that half-million bought them a 560 million dollar subsidy. That’s a hell of a ROI by any standards. Funny how the dems sell out so cheap. Do you know why PP gave the democrats 500 grand? Because the stupid leftists didn’t ask for a million.

    Hoagie (f4eb27)

  23. CNN has no shame. They’re just glad there’s another “news” outfit beneath them.

    John Hitchcock (36559e)

  24. yes i watched the video too i didn’t see any jabbing

    CNN should get several pinocchios for that one

    happyfeet (831175)

  25. Shame on CNN, shame on WaPo, boy Fiorina is scaring the crap out of the leftist radicals. I’m definitely for Carly now.

    Hoagie (f4eb27)

  26. Stay classy, leftists.

    Bugg (fa64ec)

  27. the reason i think this post shows carly to be a nasty woman is cause she’s indecorously screeching about fetuses and mindlessly regurgitating dishonest propaganda

    it’s just disgusting to see – why?

    Hold it right there, Happy. Are you suggesting that she is in no way supposed to answer the scurrilous charges laid on he in an open, very public setting? Answering with the conservative line makes her “snarly”? Just what about her response makes you think she’s screeching? Precisely where is she being dishonest?

    You can dislike her for “being poopy” all you want. But for God’s sake man, be honest about it.

    Bill H (2a858c)

  28. i’ll reply tomorrow Mr. H i already took sleeper pills

  29. Just watched the Super-moon eclipse. It’s overcast tonight in SW Florida but the moon’s reflected light was so bright a strange silvery yellowish glow broke through the clouds as the dark spherical shadow moved left to right across night’s orb.

    Not a problem, Happy. Good night.

    Bill H (2a858c)

  31. But for God’s sake man, be honest about it.

    And there’s the rub.

    Dana (86e864)

  32. HF is a nasty, bigoted, hate-filled person. And by now, nearly everyone knows it.

    I can deal with and accept that if he at least is different from a typical liberal, or one who buys into the notion that left-leaning biases imbue one with great humanity, compassion, generosity, intelligence and sophistication.

  34. in the 2014 cycle it was just… $588,918 – total

    For an organization getting federal funds, that’s about $600K too much.

    Did you know that it is illegal for a federal contractor to donate to federal candidates? Free speech be damned. Why is even one dime from a federal grant recipient legal?

    Kevin M (25bbee)

  35. You need to ask yourself some questions [like] why is it that fetuses are butchered alive to harvest their brains. Why?”

    I would have answered differently. Something like
    I am for women’s health. But women’s health does not mean letting babies in the womb being butchered because their mothers can’t be bothered with them. Women’s health does not mean letting babies be killed so abortion mills can make money off their corpses. I am for the health of women, but I am also for the health of their children, wanted or unwanted.”

    Of course, that is a bit of Monday morning quarterbacking…
    But if you want stop abortion, keep to the real point. Babies are being killed simply for convenience. Everything else is a sideshow.

    kishnevi (9cb6b5)

  36. At this point it’s clear that on certain topics mr hippyfeet is just another troll, ranting, name-calling, making up sh1t and just generally being disagreeable.

    Kevin M (25bbee)

  37. And there would be a fine thing to throw into the budget mix: a prohibition on any federal funds recipient from electioneering with any funds raised from anyone by any organization using the same trademark(s).

    Kevin M (25bbee)

  38. Shame on CNN, shame on WaPo, boy Fiorina is scaring the crap out of the leftist radicals.

    A female Trump with brains.

  39. I can deal with and accept that if he at least is different from a typical liberal, or one who buys into the notion that left-leaning biases imbue one with great humanity, compassion, generosity, intelligence and sophistication.

    May I remind you of something? HF has always said that issues like abortion and SSM are much less important than the corruption of the political system by the establishment, the overgrowth of government, and the mess known as the federal government. His real complaint with Ms. Fioriba is that she doesn’t focus on that as much as he thinks she should.

    kishnevi (31ba4e)

  40. When he calls Pro-Lifers “extremists”, his real problem is his dishonesty — to himself and to everyone else.

    John Hitchcock (36559e)

  41. May I remind you of something?

    Yea, I know that happyfeet isn’t a by-the-book liberal, that he’s among those people out there who can’t be too easily pigeonholed. But I do think he’s also more liberal than he lets on, meaning I can easily envision him walking into a voting booth on election day and plucking chads in a way that will help the left, not the right. Simply put, I don’t recall his ever voicing warm, fuzzy thoughts about almost any Republican or conservative, and certainly over the past few months has expressed more ire towards those on the right, not the left. (Then again, I admit to not reading most of his posts, so maybe I’ve missed certain comments of his that run counter to my observations.)

    Mark (f713e4)

  42. He did manage, once more, to distract from the substance of the discussion: The perverted death cult which Planned Parenthood serves under euphemisms like “women’s health”. From one point of view, it is a wonderful thing for the human gene pool that Ms. Shireman should not have children, but that can be better accomplished without infanticide.

  43. corruption of the political system by the establishment

    And when given a clear and unequivocal example of the corruption of the political system, chooses to side with the wrongdoers.

    PP is breaking the law, actual federal statutes. The democrats and media are protecting PP because they’re politically aligned.

  45. Thanks for the reminder why I don’t read HF’s comments.

    Carly did very well on Meet the Press today. She gives succinct answers and , when she is done, she stops talking.

    Very effective.

  46. mindlessly regurgitating dishonest propaganda

    please identify, with specifics, the “dishonest propaganda” being regurgitated.

    (mindlessly or otherwise.

    redc1c4 (e52d59)

  47. yes yes Mr. H I think using these dishonest sleazy propaganda videos says a lot about carly i really do

    she’s a liar about what’s in the videos and you can tell she really gets off on rubbing dead fetus on other women’s faces

    here is what we know

    carly wants the dead fetuses to be bagged tagged and incinerated

    a small handful of clinics on the other hand participate in a voluntary program where women can donate their fetuses for research

    nasty carly takes a big old dump on these women’s heads – she just poops all over them

    especially on women what aren’t as rich as her and need to go to clinics like planned parenthood instead of the fancy doctors she goes to

    she grosses me out and really makes the kim davis republican party look even more trashy hateful and desperate

    she makes trump look classy

    happyfeet (831175)

  48. Precisely where is she being dishonest?

    Mr. H c’mon… fetuses are butchered alive to harvest their brains?

    This is a lie and carly is a liar. It is a lie to say that fetuses are butchered alive to harvest their brains.

    The fetuses are aborted cause of reasons known only to the women who’ve made this decision.

    In a very very small percentage of abortions at planned parenthood clinics a woman is asked if she’d like to donate her aborted fetus so that researchers can learn stuff. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with this; it’s no different than donating your own body to science after you die.

    This is obvious to anyone who is willing to do the analysis.

    happyfeet (831175)

  49. His real complaint with Ms. Fiorina is that she doesn’t focus on that as much as he thinks she should.

    yes yes and I saw promise in her initially

    but now her signature issue is this irrelevant hateful spittle-flecked attack on women’s health clinics – and I have NO problem whatsoever with cutting all the tax monies planned parenthood gets

    (though I do think it’s very telling that nobody actually wants to cut the monies – they just want to redistribute the money to favored cronies)

    her signature issue is NOT the parlous state of failmerica’s finances

    her signature issue is NOT the need to repeal obamacare

    her signature issue is NOT failmerica’s woeful and dire decline in productivity

    These are issues we desperately needed our last president to have a mandate to address.

    The next one will need a mandate and a miracle besides.

    But carly is not the productivity candidate. Not the education candidate. Not the fiscal responsibility candidate. She’s the misogynist and hateful butchered fetus brains candidate – a phonied-up issue based on deceitful and sleazy sting videos – an issue that didn’t even exist until well after she even decided to run.

    By using this issue to define herself and drive her candidacy carly has marked herself as a fundamentally unserious self-promoter. She’s no better than Mike Huckabee.

    happyfeet (831175)

  50. Carly Fiorina is a misogynist.

    Roe v. Wade was a Tenth Amendment victory for state’s rights.

    Hodges vs. Obergefell finally brought Christianity to America.

    The Moon is made of green cheese.

    Got it.

    We seems to have a pandemic. “Bring out yer dead!!!”.

  53. You remember that collapse of hundreds of $trillion$ into a collateraless sinkhole(yes, DeutscheBank we’re looking at you)?

    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-09-28/glencore-implodes-stock-plunges-most-record-cds-blows-equity-wipeout-fears

    Everyone, everywhere is well and thoroughly hosed.

    DNF (4c8b73)

  54. Odd. Those protesters are among the people that insist condoms are super-expensive, and they’re just throwing them away. Gee, it’s almost as if all that Fluke-esque rhetoric about condom prices was a load of crap. Oh, wait, that’s exactly what it is.

    18. “i don’t think”

    Your honesty is appreciated, happyfeet.

    51. “yes yes always trust content from happyfeet”

    I always trust your content… to be wrong, biased, and whiny. Does that count?

    tops116 (d094f8)

  55. The only reason those Planned Parenthood lesbos need condoms is the possibility of pesticides on their cucumbers.

  56. 55. Snigger. Truer words have not graced this thread.

    Be happy, the death cultists have lost a battle:

    http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/09/26/its-official-ground-zero-mosque-defeated/

    DNF (4c8b73)

  57. This is why there is a need for elective abortion.

    Keep your condoms. Use your condoms. Stop the senseless and indiscriminate killing… harvesting and trafficking of unwanted or inconvenient human lives.
