Rick Santorum Glitterbombed

Picture 37
Before Rick Santorum departed South Carolina last night, a few Occupy people presented him with parting gifts: glitter and screeches. As the former senator signed autographs, they glitterbombed him, or almost did (it looks like they might have missed), and were dragged away by security personnel while screaming "occ-u-py, occ-u-py." Santorum was all smiles.

Once the Occufolk were out of the hall -- and well out of Santorum's earshot -- they began chanting "bigot, bigot, bigot." One young woman appears to have then glitterbombed one of the security personnel, demonstrating -- well, who knows what she was demonstrating? Presumably not solidarity with America's working stiffs. One young man then screamed "occupy is everywhere," and the Occufolk took up the cry. In the CBS video of the glitterbombing, the protestors then disapeared down a stairwell, and were followed a moment later by a final Occugirl wh, in her descent, began a solo chant of "bigot." She cast a last look at the camera, said "You're not welcome in South Carolina," and then was gone, followed by the dismayed stares of South Carolinians.

  1. I'd like to see someone throw a glass of a certain "frothy mix" into his face.

  2. From that photo it looks more like someone backed up and blew a bunch of "santorum" at him! :-)

  3. It's too bad that clowns make liberal causes look foolish and puerile.

  4. Throwing stuff in people's faces is a form of violence . . . Dr. King would not approve. There's gotta be a better way to register protest than this.

  5. what would you know, STuffy? You're too busy reminding non-Christians that they're going to hell.

    Uncle Tom called and he says you're making him look bad. truth.

  6. A cream pie is what he deserves

  7. I think glitter bombing is a great idea and encourage more of it. Notice the old guy leaning over the stairwell yelling "You pieces of $hit!" lol.

  8. meh, glitter bombing just doesn't have the shaming factor like a cream pie

    CREAM PIE them!

  9. Stuffy, you are correct. How about a mass 'kiss in'? Fight bigotry with love.

    Little Kiwi, you write like a child. Grow up.

  10. Max,...what..no blaming Muslims for the fact that your white dad doesn't want a gay son? :D

  11. Little Kiwi's daddy issues strike again, this time with a meaningless racial/religious twist. Off topic. Boring.

    Posted by: Max | Jan 22, 2012 6:50:05 PM


  12. i'm not the one with daddy issues, remember? one of the benefits of being a gay liberal in a liberal family - my dad doesn't resent calling me son the way yours does.

    how's it going, btw, being Conservative and living your balls in the closet? :D

    you lean right. you dislike liberals. you dislike muslims. and yet, he still doesn't love you. how's that working so far? :D

    Posted by: Little Kiwi | Jan 22, 2012 6:54:21 PM


  13. Little Kiwi, still off topic, still wrong, and still boring.

  14. I've come to believe that glitterbombing is relentlessly silly and stupid. If you wanna protest a hater, throw a pie in their face.

  15. Delicious homocon tears in this thread.

  16. I'm all for clever protest, but "glitter-Bombing"? Sorry, just not feeling it. It's so... Rip Taylor on the Gong Show circa 1977. It was stale the 2nd time it happened.

    Mix it up, come up with something different, clever and newsworthy.

  17. Not a fan of glitter bombs ... at all. Sounds like most of them miss and are messy, and really don't accomplish much. In fact, it probably sets the message BACK.

    I prefer the "mic check" protests where even when some people get booted out, the others continue. The message is out and clear whether they like it or not. One of the best I saw was an Occupy group in Chicago protesting WI Gov. Walker speaking to the Chicago Chamber of Commerce. They all paid for plates and yelled their message til the end.

  18. Protesting Santorum is fantastic, especially now that he's making an actual attempt for the Presidency, but I still think glitterbombing is incredibly immature.

    Posted by: Yuki | Jan 22, 2012 10:38:17 PM


  19. I do not like Santorum or his politics. But if you throw something at a candidate, then you deserve whatever security unleashes.

  20. I like what the last lady said "Your not welcome in South Carolina" Matter in fact they are not welcome anywhere except in their holier than though churchs!

    Posted by: Silas | Jan 22, 2012 11:58:27 PM


  21. YEAH! That'll get him to like us! Throw something at him!

    Childish.... Useless.... Not one good thing has came from doing this....

  22. The first glitter bomb was clever. But it's becoming a queer cliche and loses it's impact every time it happens.

  23. I believe this website contains some real good info for everyone
