Move over vagina suits & pussy hats…laugh hysterically at rows of handmaids debuting today

A group of angry protesters are getting all the wrong kind of attention when they showed up in D.C. wearing some serious head-turning outfits.

No, they weren’t the tired vagina suits donned by Code Pink wackos of the past, or the celeb-endorsed pussy hats that were all the rage just a few short months ago. These costumes project a much more somber tone of the mood over health care reform.

The Hill reporter Taylor Lorenz tweeted a series of pictures:

The protesters are dolled up like the characters in the much acclaimed “Handmaid’s Tale.”

The “Handmaid’s Tale” as described by Wikipedia is a novel set “in near-future New England, in a totalitarian theocracy that has overthrown the U.S. government.” The women are subjugated and the story explores the way they gain “individualism and independence.”  Since the novel has become a series on Hulu where it’s enjoyed some success.

And clearly the protesters here have drank the Kool-Aid to believe the party that arguably fought for women’s suffrage is out to erase all that and send them back to kitchens everywhere, barefoot and pregnant.

If you ever wanted to know just how badly our public school system has failed America, take a look at the video below:

PROTEST FAIL! We can’t stop laughing at these ‘handmaids’ marching against GOP health care bill

It’s not clear if it was only women under the red capes, but men were represented at the scene:

Because nothing says take me seriously, like a curse-laden fake quote from a political party you were trained to despise.

Meanwhile, Twitter got a kick out of the Handmaids:
