Woman Climbs up on the Statue of Liberty

there are Live Feeds if you look for them.

Protester on SoL


A woman has climbed the base of the Statue of Liberty and seven people have been arrested on Liberty Island, all of whom are believed to be protesters, law enforcement sources told CNN.
At one point, the woman walked back and forth under Lady Liberty's sandal and then sat down and appeared to unfurl a small flag or banner. The other protesters held a banner over the railing at the base of the statue.

Walking back and forth on her sandal? Bitch, unless you’re chilling out at the top of her torch, I don’t give a shit.

That would be a toe-test.

The 'small flag' is lame. Say it loud and proud if you got something to say, sister!

Re: Woman Climbs up on the Statue of Liberty

Well that's disappointing.

I was hoping she climbed up the torch and started waving an antifa flag or something.

The least she could've done was go topless.

Had it been an asian woman she would have given Liberty a pedicure.

Re: Woman Climbs up on the Statue of Liberty

Seems like a lot of effort just to get an upskirt shot of Lady Liberty.

Re: Woman Climbs up on the Statue of Liberty

Anyway, she was protesting the separating of children from families in this immigration debate and the climb was not planned...But even if people here are let down, she has guts to protest this way.

You certainly have been a main contributor.

Why do you post stuff if you can't deal with people not responding to it the way you want?

Maybe post this in the Politics Forum.

Otters is the same place where posters mock people's deaths, rate the hotness of sex offenders, and discuss viewing the latest stolen nude photos of celebrities.

She was actually protesting Trump. Liberals didnít really seem to care about this issue until recently even though itís been going on for years.

Absolutely True! I was also making jokes along with the rest of assholes. I guess I should've put a " " to be clear for you?

Oh please. Maybe that's how you post but that was not my intention. Shit, respond howeverthefuck you want. I had no expectations of how dvdtalkers would respond because I know this place well enough to know responses to posts here are a crapshoot. They can range from no response at all to all out jokes and can dog pile into insanity. any way in that range is fine.

yeah when i posted it, it said it was part of a protest..as i quoted from one source... but it wasn't 100% clear. The live newsfeeds i was watching didn't mention a protest so it seemed she was may have been looking to jump. It was made more clear it was political later.

I got that and have no problem with that.

I thought you were really upset about the responses and I was like man.. seriously? here? Glad to see you haven't gone off the deep end (yet).

Re: Woman Climbs up on the Statue of Liberty

Was watching this idiot on the news last night. Did she really think that climbing on the base of the Statue of Liberty was an effective form of protest? The commentator on the feed I was watching kept saying that he thought she was protesting something, but they didnt know what and couldn't get a close enough shot to read what her shirt said. She should be billed for the rescue, as well as have to reimburse every person that had bought a ticket to the statue and was forced to leave early.

"I was just at this protest and the wind snatched my new hat off, and so I just started climbing after it, and, like it kept on blowing upward just out of my reach, and before you know it, I was waaaay up there...good thing I caught it, because I was going to chase that sucker all the way to the top if I had to."

You will never understand until you’ve walked a mile under her shoes.

If you say so...

A woman who climbed the base of the Statue of Liberty on the Fourth of July says she was protesting the separation of children from parents accused of crossing the U.S.-Mexican border illegally.
