  • Topless Protester Interrupts Bernie Sanders Rally

    The woman says she was protesting Donald Trump, but could not get into his Fountain Hills, Arizona, rally. 

    If you have to have a protester at your campaign event, this is the kind to have. 

    Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders was well into his campaign speech yesterday at a rally in Phoenix yesterday, when he looked up to see a young protester who had climbed up on a male friend's shoulders and taken off her top. 

    The protester, who identified herself as Annie Ma from Los Angeles, had "STOP FASCISM" scrawled across her back and "HATE SPEECH IS NOT FREE SPEECH" written on her front, with two strategically placed “Free the Nipple” stickers exactly where you imagine them.

    The Washington Post reports that Senator Sanders paused briefly without comment as the woman was led to the back of the room, then returned to his stump speech, talking about Wall Street greed. 

    The protester, who was not arrested nor detained, was quickly surrounded by reporters. She insisted she was a Bernie Sanders supporter and claimed her intention was not to protest the Vermont senator. Annie Ma said Donald Trump was the candidate she had come all the way to Arizona to protest, but she had not been able to get into his event in Fountain Hills, Arizona, where demonstrators with their tops on had blockaded the entry road. Annie then decided she would do her protesting at the Sanders rally instead.

    After all, she already had the stickers in place.

      She has 2 brain cells.

      She wanted the attention so badly. She had planned this and wanted to execute it so badly that she could not help herself. If the sanders rally had been cancelled I bet she would have just found somewhere else to take off her top, which is really all she wanted to do.

      These types of people are unfortunate. She basically doesn’t understand that in the end, all her efforts were wasted and in the end it didn’t end up being effective against anything. If anything she interrupted and hurt the candidate she says she supports.

      Sad… There are uneducated or non-critical thinkers on both sides it seems.
