Ron Paul glitterbombed at Minneapolis Convention Center [VIDEO]

Categories: GLBT, Politics

There's something in the air the night before the caucus.
As Republican candidates descended on our fair state for today's caucus, the glitter was inevitably not far behind.

At a campaign rally in downtown Minneapolis last night, Congressman Ron Paul became the latest conservative presidential candidate to be baptized in glitter, and the set is now complete. As of last night, all the frontrunner candidates -- Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Mitt Romney, and Paul -- have officially been glitterbombed.

This time the culprit was not glitterbomb inventor Nick Espinosa, but a man calling himself "Charlie McAwesome." And while a traditional glitterbomb usually accompanies a pro-gay-rights message, McAwesome says he yelled, "Housing and healthcare are human rights not privileges!"

Meanwhile, two high school students interrupted a Newt Gingrich event at the Mall of America to call him out for "discrimination against gays and lesbians." They were silenced by jeers from the Gingrich supporters and hustled out the door.

Check out the glittering of Paul first:

And the Gingrich event:

I see that there is a lot of racist hatred on this post.  I am a black woman.  Yes, I may be the stereotypical black woman:  Single mother of 7 kids from fathers who did not give a shit about me or their children.  I was used as nothing but a hole to get their rocks off.  Then they leave.  Yes, it was a bad decision on my part.  But I paid the price.  I tried to work for a living, but stocking shelves at Target at $10/hr cannot support 7 kids, nor pay the rent, and utilities.  I was forced to go on public assistance because it is my only choice.  Think about it...working for $10 a hour making less than  $700 every 2 weeks...how the hell can you live on that?  With public assistance I get a nice apartment with controlled air conditioning when it is hot in the summer, my kids get a safe place to live (unlike having to rent a crappy place from a slum-lord), the EBT cards allows me to feed my children healthy food, and I don't have to deal with riding congested buses to go to a $10/hr job everyday. If the Republican party has their say, all of these benefits will be taken away.  The Republican party is only for the rich.  They don't care for us everyday people.  I am pregnant with my 8th child and what should I tell him when he is born?  Welcome to America.....Land of the Rich....but only if you are white and a Republican.  Obama is our only savior.  Obama is the only answer.  He is the 99%.  And we need him to take back this country from greedy Republicans!!

Oh, and in case you were wondering why Nick Espinosa wasn't there today to throw glitter on Ron Paul, he was at my brownstone in Loring Park with my partner Bruce and I having a hot bareback 3-way.  You should have seen how hot it was when both Bruce and I penetrated him both at the same time.  He kept on screaming, "fuck me, Daddies....I need both of your cocks rammed up my hole...Oh YES!!  OH JESUS YES!!!!".  We both blew our loads in his asshole and then I jacked him off.  When he shot his load, his man juice squirted 8 feet into the air, hitting the ceiling fan, spraying man cum all over our apartment.  It was fucking HOT!!  After that, we had a few cocktails and listened to Madonna's "Ray of Light" CD.

So, is Charlie McFucknuts going to open his home to the homeless population of MPLS? It's pretty cold right now, and "housing is a right". Also, if you could get me his mailing address, I have some medical bills for him to pay.

Glitter bombing a soldier, and a doctor who delivered over 4,000 babies, many of them for free.......real classy, Chuck.

My partner Bruce and I always have a supply of little packets of glitter.

After he is done nailing me in the ass and then drains his load into my mouth we both throw glitter in the air and sing the lyrics to Madonna's "Vogue".

It is fabulous!

I wonder how people would react if anti-gay marriage candidate Barack Obama got glitterbombed?  Would that be racist?

Charlie McAwesome sounds like he is one of the angry OWS protesters who is pissed off at the big banks for giving him all of that student debt.

 "Housing and healthcare are human rights not privileges"???That sound like the message of a true looser without a will of his own.Yes people, it is a right for those who actually work to provide it for themselves.If government shall provide, you will NEVER have a home better than that which is provided by section 8.  Get it?Got it?Good!Big Government says: Come on down and get your very own communist coup!  (and sign your basic American rights away)

It's kind of hard to take people seriously if they throw glitter and call themselves Charlie McAwesome.

Fail.  Glitterbombs are for the anti-gay candidates.  So, y'know, all of them *except* Ron Paul.

Let's think critically here. You have lived in a society where you have been rewarded for having illegitimate pregnancies. That being the case, you have continued having children (a problem which you have not recognized as the cause of your financial woes because you haven't been forced to deal with the real consequences of your looseness and bad relationship decisions). You've allowed your problem to perpetuate and put you further into debt. But thank God the great, big government was there to tell you that it's ok. They'll just charge the middle class (or what's left of it) for your pregnancies and illegitimate behavior. If only we lived in a society where people like you were forced to deal with the consequences of your actions and learn what kind of behavior screws you over in life as well as what behavior keeps you stay on the straight, narrow path.

Kirk....you said that "If government shall provide, you will NEVER have a home better than that which is provided by section 8."  

Um...apparently you haven't seen modern section 8 housing that is located out in the suburbs.  Brand new facilities, air conditioning, patios, terraces, 2-car garages, swimming pool/hot tub, gymnasium, playgrounds, tennis courts, etc.  It is kind of like living in a upscale condo, except you don't have to pay to live there.  It is all FREE FREE FREE!!

Ron Paul wants to make it easier for states to ban gay marriage. How is that not anti-gay?

Michelle Bachmann

Ron Paul predicted the stimulas would cause a great depression if passed.   Ron Paul also predicted that if Obama bailed out the American auto industry it would go bankrupt.   As per the Congressional Budge Office the stimulas has added 5.31 million jobs since 2009.  As for the auto bailout GM is back in first place worldwide in auto sales.  I think I prefer Obama's plan that worked  to Mitt Romney's and Ron Paul's scheme of letting GM, Chevy and Ford go bankrupt.  Maybe all you Paul supporters should read a book or something and learn a little something about economics.   A strong federal government that doesn't play favorites but isn't afraid to help save jobs is the best way towards prosperity and freedom.   Keynisian economic policy like Obama followed has worked time and time again.   If you want to live in a libertarian paradise with no strong central goverment move to Somalia.

 kirk you should click on sam's name here and see what he types.  I know you are too cowardly to call out Republican racism but you should see who you are standing with at the Tea Party rallies.  I know in person sam would be too cowardly to say the n word but he loves typing it online.   Kirk, what do you think is going to happen when people like sam are in charge?   Do you think you will be spared cause you vote Republican?

Well, since we all know SOMEONE has to make the rules, would you rather have it done at the Federal level or more local? Normally, state governments are much more likely to support the issues their constituants find important. It's much easier to get your voice heard at the state level and much easier to hold your local legislators accountable.

And its also kind of hard to take people seriously who only voted for Obama because they had to prove to themselves that they are not racist.

Michelle, you also forgot to mention two more things about Obama:

1. He created 6 trillion dollars in new debt2. He raised the debt ceiling and lowered the U.S.'s credit rating for the first time since 1941.

 Today in California Occupy Wall Street is occupying a former Marine's home to help prevent foreclosure.   You are spending your day making racist comments on the internet.  I will stand with Occupy Wall Street any day.    Have you ever done anything as remotely productive as that you loser racist scumbag? I'm sure you support the troops when you play Modern Warfare and scream racial slurs at 10 year old kids.

Yeah, Kirk....and you should click on Michelle's name....you will see that she is an anti-free market, anti-American, Marxist socialist who thinks that it is fair to rob people of their wealth and give it lazy freeloaders like OWS and welfare collectors.  Also, she is the biggest racist scumbag because she voted for our current President only due to the color of his skin.  She is just another filthy Democrat who believes that the Government should control every aspect of our lives.  She is the antithesis of a patriotic American.  She is Liberal scum.....scum that should be been aborted.

 every time you leave civil rights up to the states? Cause that happened once? also the federal government has come precipitously close to banning gay marriage several times, meanwhile where has gay marriage been legalized? the states. stop letting obama jerk off in your mouth with his hypocritical super pac

Read a history book you stupid idiot.  Every time they leave civil rights to the states you end up with something like Jim Crow.  I know since you are a Ron Paul supporter you are very stupid but try to learn something.   Do you realize that until the federal government stepped in interracial marriage was illegal in many states until 1967?   That states would sterlize criminals until 1981?    Black people were denied equal access to voting until 1965?  (A federal act that racist Ron Paul opposes)   That it was illegal to have gay sex in the privacy of your own bedroom until 2003?    I know its hard to understand when you are a stupid middle class white person that has never been in the minority but fucking learn about history before you spew your stupidity.

Also, as we saw in the last election, it is much easier to buy elections at a local level, the return on investment is much better and much quicker, just ask the Koch Brothers and Scott Walker. If Ron Paul and his supporters were interested in overturning Citizens United, then I would take them seriously. Also if they raised concern about all the states that have banned gay marriage, are trying to or already have made it harder to vote, are trying to ban abortion, are taking away the rights of union workers, or any number of other state issues. Until then it's a bunch of rhetoric and naive hope. No better than Obama, and I would argue much worse.

You don't get to tell anyone how to be taken seriously.  You are a racist.  Anyone can click on your name and see all the racist troll filth you type.  You are a pathetic racist loser.   Everyone who reads the comments on City Pages reads what you say and knows you represent the Republican base.  The easiest way to prove all Republicans are racist is not a single Republican has ever yelled at you or called you out as a racist.  It's only the Liberals like me that call you out on your idiotic bullshit.  Go back to your crap white power web sites.  No one wants to read your stupidity.   You aren't funny, clever, or cool in anyway.  You are pathetic.

 Ron Paul is a member of the Republican Party.  Opposing gay marriage is part of the Republican Party's platform.   Every single anti-gay marriage amendment put on the ballot at the state level has come from Republicans or right wing activists associated with Republican politicians.

If states have the rights to govern themselves, conservative states will ban gay marriage. It's not rocket science.

Well as your doctor I'm going to diagnosis either extreme mental illness or extreme stupity.  It is rampant among Ron Paul supporters.  Thanks for at least admitting no amount of facts will change your stupid brain.  You are the most honest Republican I've ever met.

Idiot racist no one cares what you have to say.  Go away.  When you type racist shit no one wants to hear what you have to say.   You only have stupid things to say idiot racist.  How exactly is Obama responsible for the Iraq War and Medicare Part D, the two idiot Republican progams that drive the debt?   Go fuck yourself.  No one cares what a loser racist like you or sam have to say.  I am glad you are here to show everyone what sewer trash makes up the modern Republican Party.   Thanks for proving with everything you post Republicans are all racist stupid scum.
