Romney Protest Recap

Congratulations to everyone who showed up to protest Romney today. There were hundreds of people on both sides, with the pro-equality side actually outnumbering the anti-gay crowd.

See the photos here!

Watch the videos here!

Mitt Romney had a huge American flag hanging behind him on the State House as he spoke. There were hundreds of anti-gay supporters cheering him on as he blasted the 109 legislators that voted to protect civil rights.

The Massachusetts 'Family' Institute
bused people in from all over the state. They were all very upset that they will never get the chance to vote on civil rights. Today was a little different for us too. We were on the opposite side of the street and we were protesting instead of rallying. It was great.

MassResistance was also there. They had a banner that read, "Gay Marriages: Romney started them / He can stop them".

I had a little chat with Brian and Amy. Brain thinks that we should
donate to MassResistance because they are also against the VoteOnMarriage constitutional amendment. Brian and Amy both tried to take my picture at different times. See the great photos I have of them.

With the pro-equality crowd booing and chanting "shame", "bigot" and "you lost, go home, get over it" we managed to drowned out Romney's anti-gay message. Words cannot do this protest justice.

Take a look at the photos and watch the videos.

Thanks Chris, we finally get to see the real Ms. Massresistance, although I think the general public is probably better off not knowing what she looks like!

I had no idea that Amy is a little old lady, I really imagined her as a rather robust young thing. Sort of a fresh-from-the-cotton-fields of Alabama, kind of girl.

Then there is Brian. Everybody needs a close-up of his face, this is one really neurotic fellow!

I don't mean for this to sound like a character assasination for surely we all know that neither of them has any character to assasinate.
