‘Occupy’ Protesters at Bachmann HQ: Proof That Gardasil Causes Retardation?

Posted on | December 31, 2011 | 16 Comments

Michele Bachmann has taken a lot of flak for saying that she was approached in Florida by a mother who claimed her daughter suffered brain damage as the result of a Gardasil vaccination. You may sneer at that claim, but when I showed up at Bachmann’s Iowa campaign headquarters today for an scheduled media event, I saw plenty of people displaying evidence of diminished mental capacity — and I’m not just talking about the MSM reporters.

Two busloads of smelly hippie scum from the “Occupy Iowa” movement were on the scene, engaged in their usual feeble-minded parody of “civil disobedience” protests. Just before I arrived, at least one Occupier had been arrested, and the rest of the scummy mob were exiting the parking lot under orders from the local police. Chanting, beating drums, giving media interviews and — as you will hear at about the 35-second mark of this video — unwittingly disclosing their next protest target:

STUPID OCCUPIER DUDE: “Hey, are we going to Perry next? … OK. I think I –“
HOMELY OCCUPIER CHICK: “Hey, we don’t want to say that very loud.”

I immediately alerted my friend Barbara Espinosa, who is working as a volunteer for Perry in Iowa, that they could expect this influx of subnormal semi-human detritus to show up at their campaign headquarters later. Whatever evil things I might have said about the Perry campaign, nobody deserves to be ambushed by these “Occupy” vermin. I suggested to one of the police officers that they should start randomly tasing and pepper-spraying the filthy hippies, just on general principles, but my advice was evidently ignored.

At the door to the headquarters, I saw Bachmann’s press spokeswoman Alice Stewart, flashed my business card and got inside, where I encountered a different kind of mob: Reporters surrounding the candidate as she joined her volunteers in making phone calls to Iowa voters.

Perhaps you can spot Congresswoman Bachmann amidst that massive media mob. The way you can tell the difference between the media and the Occupiers is that the media are usually somewhat less liberal and more likely to have had a bath in the past week.

OK, enough sarcasm for one post. It’s New Year’s Eve and I’m planning to celebrate it here in Iowa to the best of my ability. And surely the loyal readers who have helped make this trip possible by their contributions to the Shoe Leather Fund will want me to have a good time on one of the rare nights during this campaign trail trip when, fortunately, I don’t have a deadline to worry about.

Hit the freaking tip jar!

    Just remember, Stacy, what happens in Ames, stays in Ames.  I mean, unless someone has a cellphone camera but what are the odds of that?

    Kind of strange how she’s supposedly down in the polls, yet these scumbags make her their target. Very strange. It could just be that they find her the most objectionable, but if that’s the case, why not go after Santorum, who shares most of her values, and who is supposed to be surging in the polls?

    And actually, if they are really honest about their goals and the reason for their protests, why not go after Romney? He represents Wall Street infinitely more than Bachmann or any of the other candidates.

    Granted, it makes some sense they would want to target Perry, who is also supposed to be rising in the polls. But again, why Bachmann and not Santorum or Romney?

    And I wonder how many Paultards are in this bunch.  That might explain it. Paul’s people might think if they go ahead and knock Bachmann out they can pick up some of her votes and pull on ahead of Romney, who he is now trailing in the polls, though barely.

    Which if that’s it would show just how delusional they really are. Because if anything this might net Bachmann more votes, not less, from people who despise these scumbag hipsters.

    Stacey, isn’t “Homely Occupier Chick” the sort of lurid redundancy your editors used to warn you against?

    Are these smelly fucking hippys really occupiers or are they just smelly fucking hippys?
    If they are occupiers, they should be occupying 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., because thats where all the wallstreet money is coming from and going to.
    Stupid smelly fucking hippys!

    Limbaugh likes to say they target those that they fear, but I think he’s missing the point. For some reason Bachmann inspires some sort of hatred in them. And rest assured they will get around to the others.

    She inspires hatred in them for the same reasons she inspires it in the rest of the left, and the same reason Palin inspires it. She is a female politician who is not a progressive feminist, but instead a conservative woman with traditional values. Which is one of the reasons she’s my first choice.

    Michelle is praying for your sorry souls with all the hate and potty mouth going on. Admit it,,,you fear the message of this movement because it will compromise evil inspiration.

    If, by “you fear the message of this movement because it will compromise evil inspiration”, you mean “The Democrats expose themselves for the poseurs, hypocrites, and thieves that they really are”, no.   No, we don’t fear the message.

    What we do fear is rubbing shoulders with hordes of unwashed, overfed, and under-exercised hippies.  I hope Stacy brought along a good supply of disinfectant and DEET.

    If she is praying for anybody it would more than likely be for your sorry souls, something I wouldn’t waste my time on for the likes of you fucking scumbag hipsters. The only kind of prayer you would get out of me would amount to the waste of a perfectly good chicken, motherfucker.

    Actually they aren’t “targeting” Bachmann at all.  They said from the start they are going to disrupt or protest all the Republicans, ’cause they’re the 1% and won’t give OWS free cool stuff.

    If they weren’t homely then what are they doing with these male (?) maggots?
    Ever see anything good looking in all the coverage?
