Group wants to protest president's July 4 speech with 'Baby Trump' balloon

The "Baby Trump" blimp will be making its stateside debut July 4.

President Trump's plan to revamp the holiday festivities with "A Salute to America" at the Lincoln Memorial will be greeted with its first formal opposition, the Washington Post reports.

The 20-foot long "Baby Trump" made an appearance earlier this month at protests in London, where it was stabbed by an opposing protester, who was subsequently arrested for the act.

Code Pink, the activist group that owns the blimp, is the first to request a protesting permit from the National Park Service.

The permit application specifies that the group intends to fly "Baby Trump" over "any open grassy area nearest to Lincoln Memorial."

Code Pink approximates 40 people, including its setup and tear-down crews, to attend the protest.

Someone's drone needs to "accidentally" run into it.

If they do, I don’t think the president’s supporters will stand idly by without chiming in themselves. I suspect it won’t end well for the disrupters.

The woman who punctured the balloon in London filmed herself doing it, and it was hilarious. Too bad she was arrested, but it was destruction of private property, after all.

Violence in response to disliked political speech?

"Chiming in" doesn't necessarily mean there will violence. It usually just means "also speaking."

You'd think that giant diaper pin would pop the balloon ...    :pondering:

Not what I was driving at. I don’t advocate violence except in self defense.

But expanding on my initial point, regular Americans should have the right to celebrate a parade without the coconuts on the Left making a mockery of the event. Free speech, yes—but attempts to disrupt speeches or interfere in activities commemorating our nation’s independence is wrong. And this “resistance” to Donald Trump has gotten way out of hand. Many in the democrat party refuse to accept the results of the election; and that goes counter to our political values and to the tradition of a peaceful transition of political power. Now they want to piss on our parade? To hell with them.

I just figured they'd be stupid enough to use  real one.  :laugh:

Just the other day they were accusing the president of politicizing the 4th.

That was beyond stupid. Made my hair hurt. And, now I can’t do a thing with it.

Secret Service won't let anything like that on the National Mall if Trump is going to speak from the steps of the Lincoln.

I walked the parade on year with the Fife and Drum Corps as a formation guard to make sure no one jumped out at them...sure enough those Code Pink *bleeps* were along the parade route with their stupid signs.

I just smiled and waived at Medea Benjamin and her group of harpies.
The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

Here lies in honored glory an American soldier, known but to God

I had that same thought. With really big ears...

Riots would have erupted, no doubt.

Having known of previous presidents burned in effigy, an Obama balloon would have been benign, even if his sycophancy would have flipped.
