Randall Terry and his merry band of anti-abortion zealots have been traveling the country in an RV and protesting outside of the state offices of Republican Senators who are refusing to filibuster Elena Kagan.
When they arrived in South Carolina last week, they planned to “burn, hang, or beat” an effigy of Sen. Lindsey Graham for supporting Kagan in committee:
If a man brings the enemy into your camp, he is helping the enemy; when he helps the enemy, he has become the enemy, and must be treated as such. Mr. Graham has betrayed God and innocent babies; we must treat him as a fraud and a traitor from this moment forth.
Turns out, Terry did not actually burn the effigy of Graham, but they did hang and beat it:
A mannequin with a picture of Sen. Lindsey Graham’s face taped to the head was hung in effigy in downtown Greenville by a protester.
Randall Terry, a nationally-known pro-life supporter from Washington, D.C., came with three supporters to tape a portion of his television show called, “Randall Terry: The Voice of the Resistance.”
The anti-abortion activist filmed two skits while in downtown. One of them involved Randall’s employee constructing gallows to hang the mannequin with Graham’s picture on it.
The other skit involved a stick and a pinata. The workers hit the pinata, which had a picture of Graham on it, until plastic babies fell out of it.
