This is 11 minutes of video worth watching to see the logical conclusion of the Republican war on women in Virginia. First they take women’s rights. And then, when peaceful protesters assemble to march on the state Capitol in Richmond, they are blocked from approaching the Capitol, they are forcibly carried from the steps of the building and finally riot police are called to prevent a peaceful assembly on the steps. It’s about what you’d expect from a state happy to force women to have instruments jammed into their genitals. Gov. Bob McDonnell won’t be a vice presidential candidate. Or, with this party, maybe he will.
