“Handmaids” Protest At Roy Moore Rally [VIDEO]

The Birmingham News reports:

Silent, heads bowed and dressed in scarlet robes, a group of women stood Tuesday as a symbolic protest to Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore. The protestors were costumed as the handmaids characters inspired by the 1985 novel “The Handmaid’s Tale,” which was made into a TV series on Hulu this year. The women stood along U.S. 98 leading into the Oak Hollow Farm events venue just outside Fairhope. About seven others attempted entry into Moore’s rally with right-wing news giant Steve Bannon, but were asked to leave by security.

    Great idea, but I bet the reference was lost on that mouth breather crowd.

    Still, this is a great way to protest.

  • AJ Drew

    Sadly, for Moore, Bannon, and their ilk, Handmaids are a wet dream.
    Still, glad folks are actively protesting.

    did the locals “get it”?

    • Gustav2

      Nobody cares about those damn “Red” nuns…sheee-it what commies!

  • AlternativeQuacks

    Roy Moore: “What are all those old ladies doing in red dresses?”

    • GayOldLady

      More (Moore) like, “Get those women out of here, they’re all over 18”

    Wait… they are allowed to have Hulu in Alabama? Someone call your preacher/legislator/door to door Bible salesman to make it [email protected]

      Good…that Christmas tree deserved that.

      • Oscarlating Wildely

        No shit– damn, that’s an ugly tree.

        • misterjack

          Hahahaha! I LOVE it!

    • olandp

      I remember those “preserved” trees in the A&P when I was a kid, I always liked them, but we never got one. What i wouldn’t give for one now…

  • Boreal

    Satan’s Handmaidens

  • FAEN

    Did he try to show them his tiny gun?

  • Butch

    Slightly off topic, but has anyone else noticed that you need to be watching shows like Chris Hayes and Rachel to see anything about the protests against the GOP tax heist? I haven’t seen a word on the “regular” news broadcasts.

    • David J

      I do watch a little of CNN, and there is hardly a mention that shows on screen for less than a minute, no lengthy discussion. SAD!

    • Joe in PA

      Yeah, Rachel showed a protest at Ryan Costello’s capitol office (my PA rep). I’ve heard nothing about that before.

  • MaryJOGrady

    That took bravery. Kudos to all the demonstrators.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    Brother Moore ? This is like watching a whole different society that we thought was just fiction.

  • greenmanTN

    More than Moore’s perving, his views on women’s rights, including the right to vote, is more in line with The Handmaid’s Tale themes.

  • Kevin Andrews

    There isn’t enough collective intellect in the entire State of Alabama to grasp the statement.

  • David Walker

    OT, but for illustrative purposes: In honor all the women of Time’s “Persons of the Year,” because I still can’t believe the kiddie diddler’s hypocrisy, and because it’s a damned good scene, Lonesome’s comeuppance in “A Face in the Crowd”…

    • Statistics Palin

      Damn that’s a good movie.

    • jerry

      And a reminder, we need them to release the “Apprentice” outtakes.

    • Jean-Marc in Canada

      And sadly, we had that with the Access Hollywood tape…and still they voted for him.

  • Lawerence Collins

    Nice protest, but the Christians will just get off on it.

    • Jean-Marc in Canada

      They do love themselves a good martyring.
