Mike Madden reportsthat Randall Terry, the anti-abortion rights activist last seen handing out beer and chicken wings at a press conference on Sonia Sotomayor, is appearing outside health care town halls with inventive/offensive protests:
In Chattanooga, Tenn., he was nearly arrested Saturday while standing outside a federal courthouse stabbing baby dolls, because he hadn’t obtained the proper permits for the demonstration. In Nashville on Sunday, one of Terry’s cronies put on an Obama mask and pretended to mug pedestrians walking by. “It’s an angry white man in a black man’s mask,” Nashville resident James Davis, who saw Terry’s high jinks in action, told the Tennessean’s Jennifer Brooks. “They’re just trying to shock people. They’re trying to say, ‘Barack Obama doesn’t care about you, he doesn’t care about your kids, because he’s black.’” (Salon couldn’t put it much better ourselves.) The protests also include a crowd-pleasing bit where an old lady walks up to Terry, dressed as a doctor, seeking medical advice, and instead Terry jabs her in the neck with a needle and pretends to kill her.
Madden notes that Terry’s qualms with health care reform aren’t much different than those of Sarah Palin, even though his method of protest is more extreme. Another example of those methods: this July protest outside of the White House, where a man with an Obama masks whipped a baby wrapped in chains and dragged behind Terry like a slave.
