In Their Own Words: Ruling Class on ‘Glitter Bombing’ Republicans [VIDEO]

Not much to say about how our ruling class reacts to people “glitter bombing” Republicans because most is said in the headlines and the excerpts of the stories and commentaries about it (which are listed in this post below the videos). Videos are not necessarily posted in chronological order. Only thing I’ll note is that in the Gingrich video, wait for the part where Gingrich mumbles something about it being “nice to live in a free country.” No cries about an assault on democracy, about insurrection, or anything like that.

Some of the owners of the videos won’t allow them to play on any other sites other than their YouTube channels. You’ll know which ones they are by the message you receive on them. Just click on through to their YouTube channels to watch them.

  • The Atlantic, June 20, 2011: Glitter Bombs: Weapons of Mass Reactions – A politician’s guide to surviving a glitter attack – “On Saturday, U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, of Minnesota, became the latest Republican politician to get hit with this season’s most festive form of political direct action: A glitter bomb. At a speaking gig in Minneapolis, attorney and gay-rights activist Rachel E.B. Lang threw glitter on the presidential candidate to protest her support of anti-gay preacher Bradlee Dean, who Lang said was running a “gay witch hunt.” The glitter campaign is now in full swing, and promises to be a hallmark of this election season. . . .”
  • The Washington Post, March 6, 2015: A brief history of politicians getting glitter-bombed – “Getting the ol’ glitter treatment is nothing new for politicians. A little (or big) dash of that sparkly stuff, and boom, you are part of an exclusive (but growing) club.

    “Glitter-bombing — the act of dumping a bunch of glitter onto an unsuspecting politician — became a popular form of protest during the 2012 presidential election cycle, particularly used by LGBT activists.

    “So it’s kind of a throwback to hear of glitter and politics! . . .”
