Lindsey Graham Finally Hanged, Beaten In Effigy In South Carolina

by Jack Stuef

Flaming.Last week, a “nationally-known pro-life supporter from Washington, D.C.,” Randall Terry, came to Greenville, South Carolina and hanged and beat up effigies of Sen. Lindsey Graham. There is a precious photo gallery of this historical event of lolz, which may prove to be the turning point in our nation’s history. Photo One: Bystanders look on in utter glee. Photo Three: Lindsey’s head appears to be taped to a stuffed duck’s ass. Photo Four: Some delinquent hits the Lindsey pinata. Photo Six: Said delinquent looks evil and also dubious as abortion guy puts his arm around him. ET CETERA.

The anti-abortion activist filmed two skits while in downtown. One of them involved Randall’s employee constructing gallows to hang the mannequin with Graham’s picture on it.

The other skit involved a stick and a pinata. The workers hit the pinata, which had a picture of Graham on it, until plastic babies fell out of it.

Excellent! Nice “skits!” Hire this man, Lorne Michaels. [WYFF via good ol' chascates]

That pinata kid looks like an abortion “survivor”.

memzilla July 26, 2010 at 4:01 pm

Say, you know who else believes in solutions from the Eighth Century A.D.?

Aguacatero July 26, 2010 at 4:04 pm

Saddest and lamest act of public protest since the actual Tea Party.

Mahousu July 26, 2010 at 4:04 pm

From the photos, it looks like Terry’s “crowd” consisted of three people – and that’s counting the photographer taking the pictures.

Chernobyl Soup July 26, 2010 at 4:04 pm

NARAL’s got a pinata gap!

SayItWithWookies July 26, 2010 at 4:05 pm

Welcome to the Cult of the Fetus — where they love life so much they’ll dance naked around your hanged, burning effigy to protect it.

Gratuitous World July 26, 2010 at 4:07 pm

there’s always a hidden cost when you go for the penal implant

KilgoreTrout_XL July 26, 2010 at 4:09 pm

Oh, ok. The little plastic babies falling out of the pinata 6 feet onto the asphalt was a metaphor. Cool. Let’s all go get laid.

JMP July 26, 2010 at 4:11 pm

But remember, Randall Terry is not a terrorist supporter and never tries to incite people to violence at all, and bears no responsibility for the assassination of Dr. Tiller.

weejee July 26, 2010 at 4:13 pm

So if I am understanding that skit; in South Carolina the collect all aborted fetuses and pump them in the Senator’s ear making Lindsey Graham’s head a fetal piñata. Who knew? Or are we dealing with a logical disconnect something on the scale of the Martian Valles Marineris, which would make wingnuts aliens from Mars. Wonkette blogs, you decide.

assistant/atlas July 26, 2010 at 4:14 pm

Why does that young lesbian lady with the bowl cut keep showing up in the all the Blingees lately? Does this have something to do with Lindsey’s gheyness?

Extemporanus July 26, 2010 at 4:15 pm

Lindsey Graham should applaud those photos — for the first time in his life, he actually appears to be somewhat well-hung.

Geogre July 26, 2010 at 4:16 pm

[re=625869]JMP[/re]: How dare you imply that there is any reason to suspect that demonstrations of this sort might encourage violence?

Don’t you realize that Lindsay Graham is forcing Randall Terry to do this? By the abortions he’s performing. By talking to people. By talking to people who don’t want to outlaw abortions. People who don’t want to ban all abortions in all cases.

Georgia Right to Life just released a press release saying Sarah Palin endorsed a candidate (Karen Handel) who would have aborted Trigger. The reason? Years ago, when Handel was a county person, she was moderate on choice once.

Geogre July 26, 2010 at 4:18 pm

Saddam’s head motion is pretty danged macabre, folks, given what happened to him.

mookworthjwilson July 26, 2010 at 4:18 pm

Hahahaha…nothing says funny like a fake lynching.

SlouchingTowardsWasilla July 26, 2010 at 4:18 pm

And then it got hot. See? God hates abortion. And fags.

RoscoePColtraine July 26, 2010 at 4:19 pm

[re=625867]KilgoreTrout_XL[/re]: I thought it was a little macabre at first, until I realized that the metaphor was about liberation. Not of babies, but of the insanity that bubbles inside one’s brain.

Extemporanus July 26, 2010 at 4:20 pm

[re=625870]weejee[/re]: “The thing’s hollow…it goes on forever…and — oh my God — it’s full of ‘tards!”

Monsieur Grumpe July 26, 2010 at 4:20 pm

Does Randall get paid for doing this?

AnnieGetYourFun July 26, 2010 at 4:20 pm

Randall Terry: The only man alive who can make me feel a little sorry for old Gheyface Graham.

RoscoePColtraine July 26, 2010 at 4:22 pm

[re=625877]Geogre[/re]: That’s two of us that read this and thought macabre. I feel better, more sure of my assessment now.

Lazy Media July 26, 2010 at 4:23 pm

Man, ol’ Used-Car Randy Terry has fallen pretty far down the wingnut fame ladder. He used to lead THOUSANDS of protesters in blockading abortion clinics. Now he’s doing half-assed street theater in third-tier South Carolina burgs.

Bordo July 26, 2010 at 4:25 pm

Can’t someone place a puke funnel down Randall Terry’s throat and pour in placentas until they come out his ears?

Jim89048 July 26, 2010 at 4:25 pm

I’ll wait for Lindsey’s senior bear Walnuts! to clarify before I comment further.

chascates July 26, 2010 at 4:25 pm

U.S. Senators Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins needn’t worry as Maine hasn’t a long and colorful history of lynchings. Kay Bailey Hutchinson, on the other hand,…

Sgt. Biyatch July 26, 2010 at 4:26 pm

They should’ve burned an effigy of Graham as a fetus and had full size Lindsey dolls inside the pinata. That would really have hammered their point home.

Also that is the most creative Blingee I’ve seen in a long, long time.

Limeylizzie July 26, 2010 at 4:26 pm

[re=625884]AnnieGetYourFun[/re]: I had exactly the same feeling,Randall Terry is a fool and a criminal, poor little Lindsey is nowhere near as disgusting he is.

Oldskool July 26, 2010 at 4:28 pm

On the same site it says, “Teen Killed During Family Target Practice” so why wasn’t he over there instead, standing behind that target protecting that kid?! Because Randall Terry hates kids AND baby dolls, that’s why!!

WarAndGee July 26, 2010 at 4:28 pm

Hey the guy is only expressing what 97% of America wants. BIG GOVERNMENT SHOULD FORCE EVERY WOMAN TO CARRY HER PREGNANCY TO FULL TERM!

JMP July 26, 2010 at 4:29 pm

[re=625858]Aguacatero[/re]: Oh, I’d say any of the Phelps’ families “God hates fags/America” protests are the most pathetic, and vile. Actually I’m surprised Wonkette didn’t note their protesting of Comic-Con last week, and the ensuing costumed counter-protest:
http://scienceblogs.com/pharyngula/2010/07/comic-con_reacts_to_fred_phelp.php

[re=625861]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Another internet columnist I regularly read refers to them as “embryo fetishists”, which I think captures the group well.

[re=625876]Geogre[/re]: Graham’s imagined crime is worse than that; he’s not using Roe v Wade as a single-issue litmus test to determine if he’ll vote to confirm a Supreme Court nominee.

largefoot July 26, 2010 at 4:29 pm

Randall Terry, the right wing’s favorite domestic terrorist I mean life loving patriot!

Lionel Hutz Esq. July 26, 2010 at 4:30 pm

But when will Randall Terry use his tanks to pull down the giant statues of Lindsey Graham that fill the South Carolina countryside?

Radiotherapy July 26, 2010 at 4:31 pm

We need more plastic fetuses, not less.

Buzz Feedback July 26, 2010 at 4:32 pm

Word on the street is “the pinata” is one of Lindsey’s favorite moves.

Surfeit O'Hubris July 26, 2010 at 4:34 pm

Needz moar criminal charges for terrorist threats against an elected official. Uhh, and trucknutz.

RoscoePColtraine July 26, 2010 at 4:35 pm

The metaphor of the beating of the pinata, deconstructed:

The pinata itself: The issue of abortion, itself
The stick: LOVE
The breaking open of the pinata’s guts: Triumph, victory which will come, following enough LOVE
The plastic babies: **I don’t know, should’ve been candy, right?

Dashboard_Buddha July 26, 2010 at 4:35 pm

I find it very amusing when conservatards feed on themselves…but the tiny baby thing just creeped me the fuck out.

Decker July 26, 2010 at 4:36 pm

If you squint a little, it looks like the gay smiley face is yakking on the Lindsay doll. That seems a much more fitting metaphor than setting the doll on fire.

Monsieur Grumpe July 26, 2010 at 4:37 pm

[re=625896]JMP[/re]:
Those pixs are hilarious. Thanks.

gbear July 26, 2010 at 4:38 pm

The old cowboy holding the non-Linsey-Graham end of the rope does a pretty good job of hiding himself behind a 4×4 post. He seemed to get that appearing in photos like this might not be a cool idea. Good choice, given that everyone else participating in the scene looks incredibly stupid. Wonder if he was an employee of Terry who got dragged along?

BlueStateLiberal July 26, 2010 at 4:38 pm

[re=625894]WarAndGee[/re]: Yeah, hang every pregnant woman up by the neck and beat her until the babies fall out. Makes sense to me. Does it to you?

Hemp Dogbane July 26, 2010 at 4:38 pm

Verb + noun + “until plastic babies fell out of it”. Was that Taibbi or P. J. O’Rourke?

One Yield Regular July 26, 2010 at 4:39 pm

Randall Terry is really going to regret this when Lindsey Graham decides to have an abortion.

Rotundo July 26, 2010 at 4:41 pm

[re=625877]Geogre[/re]: Yeah, I picked up on that right away as well. Then I figured it played well into the hanging Senator Graham motif used by the Randall Terry nutjobs.

Geogre July 26, 2010 at 4:44 pm

[re=625896]JMP[/re]: “Graham’s imagined crime is worse than that; he’s not using Roe v Wade as a single-issue litmus test to determine if he’ll vote to confirm a Supreme Court nominee.”

So, RoscoePColetrane and I are right: it is about a dance of death. Let’s see if I can do this safely. (I’ll put oven mitts over my ears.)
1. Lindsay doesn’t make overturning Roe v. Wade the only issue that matters.
2. A SC candidate might get on the court who does not express a desire to overturn Roe v. Wade.
3. Roe v. Wade will never be overturned.
4. Babbies are murdered.
5. Lindsay Graham is full of dead babbies.
6. Our heads hemorrhage, and we start jerking our arms around as if with dystrophy.
7. All fall down.

Randall Terry must really admire the mullahs. They get to do this sort of thing all the time, and they can just issue fatwahs without consulting anyone.

gbear July 26, 2010 at 4:48 pm

Jeez, I like the top two headlines at the side of the photo gallery:

Teen Killed During Family Target Practice

11 Cars Go Up In Flames During Church Service

And Randall Terry really is a fat ugly fuck, isn’t he?

Lazy Media July 26, 2010 at 4:48 pm

My favorite piece of Randall Terry nut-think is this: He constantly said divorce was a major, major sin, then cheated on his first wife, got divorced, was shunned by his church, and later became a Roman Catholic. Now he says that his Roman Catholic faith teaches him that his first marriage wasn’t a REAL marriage, so he’s OK on the divorce front. I figure after he trades in wifey No. 2 on a younger model, he’ll convert to polygamous Mormonism.

Ducksworthy July 26, 2010 at 4:55 pm

[re=625861]SayItWithWookies[/re]: I suspect there is a sexual deviation that afflicts all these males with fetus fetishes. And I’m willing to speculate that it has to do with being raised in the catholic church.

lukewarm July 26, 2010 at 5:04 pm

Randall Terry, like all other supporters of terrorism, should be on the no-fly list. Waddle to South Carolina the old-fashioned way, Terry.

Ducksworthy July 26, 2010 at 5:14 pm

[re=625896]JMP[/re]: Thank you for pointing out the ComiCon counter protest. Bender is my hero.

Genius in Blingee: Ms. Graham’s ovaries linked by a magical rainbow of fallopian tubes.

DustBowlBlues July 26, 2010 at 5:42 pm

Sometimes it’s hard to live in states like OK and SC and keep your mouth shut in public. Tonight I have to go to a catfish dinner to benefit some woman who got sick and had to use a leg, or something, before her health insurance began at her new job. Said dinner will be served by dickwads who are going to vote against Drew Edmondson and for Mary Fallin because they do not want any socialist health care.

I, however, am pissed that I’m asked to contribute when I’m on of the people who vote for Democrats and taxes so that the selfish will be forced to share the burden with the generous.

Oh, and did I mention that they’ll want to keep millionaires from being taxed? Just in case, you know, they win the Powerball or invent computers.

Please-will someone explain stoopid to me?

Native of SL UT July 26, 2010 at 6:09 pm

Why isn’t Randall Terry in jail with his buddy Jack Abramoff? If he was, the crowd around him would of been much bigger than this measly showing. Except they wouldn’t have been doing any effigy thingies. They would have been lining up to ass rape Randall.

Lionel Hutz Esq. July 26, 2010 at 6:16 pm

Randall Terry is going to do to Lindsey Graham what he did to Terri Schiavo.

Native of SL UT July 26, 2010 at 6:20 pm

“Lindsey’s head appears to be… a stuffed duck’s ass.”

Do kids today even know that the Duck’s Ass was a hairstyle popular with teenage delinquent boys in the 1950s and early 60s that featured longish greased hair, combed in back to resemble the south end of a duck waddling north?

Troubledog July 26, 2010 at 6:34 pm

Love the call letters of the local station covering this: WYFF. YiFF Television? Since they are taping the Senators’ image to a pinata ducks’ ass and smacking it until it shoots a load of plastic babies, it just seems too serendipitous for words. Brain bleach will be needed for the image of Lindsey getting his duck suit wearing ass spanked however.

Rock Ripsnort July 26, 2010 at 6:55 pm

“Man killed trying to ‘slap’ train”?

Damn, that’s gonna keep me awake all night.

What is it with South Carolina gluing Senate candidate photos to things? First(?) it was Alvin Green on the Statue of Liberty, now it Lindsey Graham on — well, I don’t know what that thing is.

Let’s glue Randall Terry’s photo to a sculpture of Gauri (India’s goddess of purity). She’s so much like him, people may not even notice the photo.

Or Andrew Breitbart’s face on a status of a Ku Klux Klansman — WAIT, I think there’s already a statue like that — it’s ALL OF THEM.

Or Sarah Palin’s face on the tail of Alaska Airlines planes. Oops, too late.

TheWaltonFirm July 26, 2010 at 8:07 pm

[re=625896]JMP[/re]: Thing about Westboro Babtist is that they protest everything equally and its the exact same protest every time. Its, like, what they do, as a family. After each protest they go home and start getting ready for the next protest. There isn’t really anything about them that hasn’t been covered in the media already. The best coverege ever was the show Louie Theroux did for the BBC.

It’s a sad day when Lindsey “Butters” Graham is somehow the sane one of any story.

Fetus Pinata really went downhill after their second album.

Katamaran July 27, 2010 at 8:19 am

Know what’s so funny? When I first read the headline, I thought they were lynching Lindsay Lohan in effigy.
Which would also make sense. That movie with Jane Fonda was a crime against nature.

jcakes July 27, 2010 at 9:49 am

Jesus! Why can’t Randall Terry just complete his death spiral and get off of my world already!!
