On our 17-mile march from downtown Denver to “The Perimeter,” which is a police blockade at least another 17 miles from the actual Pepsi Center, we ran into these friends. Thousands of riot cops, thousands of hippies, thousands of blocked crossways and pedestrian routes to The Perimeter. They are protesting Barack Obama’s War in Iraq, as well as the fact that anyone is dying anywhere in the world. Let’s immanentize their eschaton, after the jump.

Riot cops guard Denver’s most valuable institution: a filthy, exhaust-reeking parking garage overridden by jungle hobos fighting over raw steaks.

They had billy clubs, but also guns. They gave guns to the lady cops in honor of Hillary Clinton, the first woman to ever hold a job.


Swear to god, it’s not a green screen! It’s just Howard Wolfson in police gear, on a bike, staring daggers at the pinks.

  1. Every time I feel sympathy for the poor idealistic protesters getting sprayed with mace and tear gas, Code Pink comes along and makes me want to work out my clubbing arm.

  2. Ha. You said ‘pinks’. Doesn’t that mean something dirty?

    Wow, I wish the speeches could be as interesting as Bill’s. These other guys are so lame.

  3. I was at one of the convention a few years back when these ‘tards arrived. I kind admired the spirit…till I got stuck in a room with about 100 of them. The BO made me hallucinate.

    Stoopid smelly hippies.

  4. So many homeless, jobless, meth phreaks in Mile High City. Sad.
    When Juan is prez, we will have a final solution at last.

    Can somebody point out the 5’11” dude who wants to come bunk with me in Englewood? I wanna find out if he’s cool with a group scene.

  5. [re=72629]AnnieGetYourFun[/re]: Bill fucking killed. Kerry — despite PBS’ crazy claims — gave a sorta-kinda “meh” speech. Exactly the quality I want in a Secretary of State.

  6. [re=72629]AnnieGetYourFun[/re]:

    ah yes…the search for pinker pastures.

    yeah…bill’s still got it, doesn’t he? let’s hope the man from
    hope works hard for hopey.

  7. “You guys are so in the tank we should be in a submarine!” says some Republican strategist (Mike Whatshisname?) being interviewed on MSNBC as the crowd tries to kill him with the power of their disapproving screams. What did he expect to find at the DEMOCRATIC national convention if not people in the tank for Obama?

  8. Judging by the amount of padding on those pink bike seats I have a feeling that there has been a serious hemorrhoid outbreak among the Code Pink crowd.

  9. What? Biden’s gotta give a speech? Why two minutes ago, he had no idea he’d be nominated as the vp candidate — give him a few minutes to prepare, at least!

  10. [re=72654]AnnieGetYourFun[/re]: DON’T YOU BELIEVE IN FREE SPEECH?!!
    [re=72655]tsunami[/re]: Oh fiddlesticks. I am SO embarrassed. Thank you for your correction!

  11. My fave story about these ‘tards is when they got lucked up at the convention I was at, a lawyer told me they had to stay true to their collective beliefs. They would chant from their jail cells, but they had to agree on the chant, and at one point they had a 30-minute argument about what to chant next.

    Fucking Mumia anarchist WTO fucktards.

  12. Ahh, democracy in action! Or as Bush would tell you, liberdy. Freedumb. Our citizens choosing their elected representatives, never more than 5 feet away from jack-booted heavily armed mercenaries ready to crush their skulls just for fun. This makes Tiennamen Square look like Disney World. Lets export this kind of liberdy to the mid east where they don’t have personal freedumbz. Like us do.

  13. What’s with the guy in the neon green biker shorts. I guess with the pink shirt, pink hat and pink ladies bike with the pink fuzzy seat, he felt compelled to wear something that expressed his sexuality. I bet granny guitar can’t wait to get home to tell her canasta club how she touched a real live gay person.

  14. I’m seriously rooting for the cops to just mow these people down and ship them to a gulag outside Durango. Do they have any idea who started this war or who’s to blame for it?

  15. [re=72920]gliberal[/re]: Really? So, they’re actually running over people with tanks and hauling them out and shooting them out of hand by the dozens in Denver? ‘Cause that’s what happened in Tiananmen Square.

  16. [re=72920]gliberal[/re]:
    This has to be the stupidest thing I’ve ever read on Wonkette. And I was here for the great Paultard Invasion of 2007, so I’ve seen some really stupid shit.

  17. I was in New York four years ago at the Rep. convention, and I must say the police sticks were nowhere near this large or prominently displayed…hott.
