18 grandmothers arrested at Iraq war protest

October 17, 2005, 8:18 PM EDT

NEW YORK (AP) _ Eighteen grandmothers were arrested and face charges of disorderly conduct after they showed up at a military recruiting center and said they wanted to enlist, a protest group said.

Police arrested the women, ranging in age from 49 to 90, Monday afternoon after they sat down in front of the Times Square recruiting station to protest the war in Iraq, police said. When the 18 women, including Marie Runyon, who is 90 and blind, tried to enter the station, they found it locked, said Joan Wile, 74, director of
Grandmothers against the War.


"We tried to ring the bell at the booth, but no one answered," Wile said. "I saw a head poke up from behind the counter every once in a while and then duck back down."

At least those grannies have an advantage for not getting raped in jail by the big butch lesbians.
I'm sure they were closed and not scared. Why the fuck would anyone be scared of blind 90 year old grannies applying for military service. I would open up just to have a good laugh and process the paperwork. Next week they would be in Iraq cooking a real home-cooked meal for the troops. That's very patriotic.

You don't think grandmas are terrifying?? Mine's very intimidating. Especially after several Martinis.

If they take them into the Marines I guess the term "leatherneck" would take on a whole new meaning. I'd guess most everything they have is leather at that age.

Hooray for the Fightin' Grannies!

When Golden Girls Attack!

I know I'd turn and run from Bea Arthur.

Btw, I was just the 9,000 visitor here. Do I get a special prize?

No soup for you, Sar!

Absolute hilarity. No permit to parade or protest, in the slammer yea' go!

I heard that the NYPD had to hogtie a couple of the grannies. HOT!

Good post. But ya know, they never refer to men who are 49 and older as "Grandfathers." That's kinda annoying.

(It's not my blog, so I don't get to complain. But I'm gonna anyway. I figure that I just cannot live with myself if I let a comment like, "At least those grannies have an advantage for not getting raped in jail by the big butch lesbians." go without saying that it's very ugly, and uncalled for.)

Since it's your blog, you can just delete my comment. But at least I know I didn't just stand by.

TLP - You absolutely get to voice your opinion and, as in this case, disgust. Though not always endorsed, all views and opinions are welcome here.

I'll make it fair.
At least those gramps have an advantage for not getting raped in jail by the big fags.
Come to think of it, they probably have no teeth so advantage may fall to the fags

Jeez, Araider. I'll spell it out for you. One of TLP's daughters is a lesbian, not to mention one of my favorite fellow bloggers. Say what you will, but expect the wrath of the Pez in return!

Guess what araider? It is not the gays who do the raping in jail. It's straight guys. The gays get raped.

But I know that your mother is proud of you too.

But the straight gusys turn gay
