Where is Code Pink?

July 21, 2009

Our Dear Leader‘s administration has announced that it plans on increasing the size of the US Army by “22,000 soldiers to help meet the needs of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan…”

Where is Code Pink? Why are they not protesting this? Could it be that they really aren’t a non-partisan group only interest in “world peace?”

Code Pink’s silence in this matter speaks volumes about their actual, extremist far left, agenda.

Attention Code Pink

February 18, 2009

Our Dear Leader, Barack Hussein Obama is sending an additional 17,000 US military personnel to Afghanistan. This is just the first wave, “The new forces represent the first installment on a larger influx of U.S. forces widely expected this year.”

I except your principled, non-partisan protests to start out side the White House and the Obama’s Chicago home without delay.

Another example of "liberal logic"

Code Pink is “declaring victory” and stopping their protests at the USMC recruiting station in Berkeley.

Here is the kicker, apparently the word “Victory” means something different to the hard far left extremist moonbats of “Code Pink.”

As the nice folks at This Ain’t Hell point out, the US Marines are still there.

In fact, the USMC intends on staying to at least the end of the three year lease they have on the office space.

Protest Shooter has pictures of the rather tiny “victory celebration.” Note that the “Code Pink” moonbats are also 9/11 Troofer moonbats too boot!

He also has a link to a cool shirt.

How Code Pink should have been handled in Berkeley

Code Pink’s roots really are pink!

February 4, 2008

It’s not a dye job, the so-called “peace activist” organization has its roots in anti-American Communist groups that supported every war that had Cubans and their Russian advisor’s fighting in.
Details from FrontPage Magazine:

Like any other group, Communists come in a lot of shapes, sizes and colors. This time they’re wearing pink, they’re on the nightly news, and more than anything, they want the mothers and grandmothers of America to identify with them.

If you didn’t know any better, you’d think the leaders of the women’s anti-war group Code Pink got lost on their way to the carpool line. Since October, these hot pink-clad “marching moms” have been spinning the same tale to reporters from coast to coast, the one about how concern for their families moved them to trade their oven mitts for placards and take to the streets in protest of an unjust war on Iraq.

They’ve played the part so convincingly that over the last six months, they’ve become the media darlings of war protest movement, raking in the television talk show invites and making national news when they were arrested in front of the White House. But the untold story is what they were doing before October.

Unless you travel in Marxist circles or work for the FBI or CIA, the names of the Code Pink moms may not ring a bell with you, though you’ve probably been reading news reports about their collective exploits for years. In the wake of their war against capitalism and self-determination, they’ve left a trail of anarchy and destruction that has cost property owners, corporations and consumers millions of dollars.

Naturally, they’ve toned their Marxist rhetoric down for their stint with Code Pink. Though they’ve taken great pains to differentiate themselves from the other, more radical anti-war protesters, they are one and the same. The leaders of Code Pink didn’t merely take part in the Washington and San Francisco protests that made international headlines – they also organized them. In the process, they’ve provided a rare public glimpse of the faces behind the modern, highly organized American Marxist movement. Needless to say, these women have little in common with the carpool moms of America.

At the center of Code Pink is legendary leftist organizer Medea Benjamin, the 50-year-old mother of two widely credited as a chief organizing force behind the 1999 Seattle riots in which 50,000 protesters did millions of dollars worth of property damage in their effort to shut down meetings of the World Trade Organization. In addition to Code Pink, Benjamin’s San Francisco-based human rights organization Global Exchange was the founding force for United for Peace and Justice coalition, the nexus of the anti-war protests.

The United for Peace coalition, which includes Socialist Action and the Socialist Party USA, is also led by Leslie Cagan, who has a long history of activism with the American Communist Party. If you want to know what anti-war activities United for Peace and its more radical partner, Act Now To Stop War & End Racism (ANSWER) have planned for the near future or contact information for how you can join in, you can click on the Communist World Workers Party website, one of the central grassroots clearing houses for communist organizers in the United States and around the world.

More on the Barbarians in Berkeley.

February 2, 2008

My friend Doug, a former US Army Infantryman and dyed in the wool liberal born and raised in San Francisco, has a few choice words about the actions of his neighbors in Berkeley against the United States Marine Corps.

The City of Berkeley has gone too fucking far. A USMC Recruiting office opened on Shattuck Avenue in December 2006. It’s mission is to attract recent college graduates to serve as officers.

“Code Pink” one of the shriller anti-everything groups in the area, went nuts.

The Berkeley City Council just passed two resolutions: One gave Code Pink a designated parking spot, right in front of the station. The second?

The other resolution more directly criticizes the presence of the center in Berkeley. The city manager was directed to send a letter to the U.S. Marine Corps saying they are “uninvited and unwelcome intruders” in the city.

In addition, the city attorney has been directed to investigate whether the city’s anti-discrimination laws can be enforced at the center, based on the military’s consideration of sexual orientation in hiring.

The United States Marine Corps. Morons, if the Marines were coming to your town as “unwelcome intruders” y’all would currently be either dead or learning to love life as an EPW. Marine recruiters are complete professionals, and I say this as an old Army grunt!

But things get better.. Betty Olds, member of the Politburo for the PR of Berkeley actually said the following:

“I’m ashamed of my vote,” said Councilwoman Betty Olds, who helped approve the parking spot but not the condemnation. “The protesters should have free speech – this is where Free Speech was born, after all – but to tell the Marines they are not welcome is shameful. If I had to do it again, I wouldn’t even go for the parking spot.”

Free Speech in this country was born at a place called Lexington and Concord. The rights enshrined in the First Amendment were won by force of arms, including those first Marines.

Amazing.

So, until both these resolutions are withdrawn and the City Council of Berkeley issues an apology to the USMC, I will not be spending a freaking dime in that city. That includes companies based in the den of weasels.

Let Bezekely know how you feel about this:

You might also contact your national representatives and suggest that if Berkeley hates the federal government so much, they can do without federal money.

To be clear, I support Code Pink’s right to be idiots in public. What is appalling is a city government attacking a branch of the military.

Update
: How others view the US Marine Corps:

“Some people live their entire lifetime and wonder if they ever made a difference to the world. Marines don’t have that problem.” — United States President Ronald Reagan, January 1995

“The Marines I have seen around the world have the cleanest bodies, the filthiest minds, the highest morale, and the lowest morals of any group of animals I have ever seen. Thank GOD for the United States Marine Corps.” Eleanor Roosevelt, 1945

“Marines are about the most peculiar breed of human beings I have ever witnessed. They treat their service as if it were some kind of cult, plastering their emblem on almost everything they own, making themselves up to look like insane fanatics with haircuts to ungentlemanly lengths, worshipping their Commandant almost as if he were a god, and making weird animal noises like a band of savages. They’ll fight like rabid dogs at the drop of a hat just for the sake of a little action, and are the cockest sons of bitches I have ever known. Most have the foulest mouths and drink well beyond man’s normal limits, but their high spirits and sense of brotherhood set them apart and, generally speaking, the United States Marines I’ve come in contact with are the most professional soldiers and the finest men I have ever had the pleasure to meet.” — An Anonymous Canadian Citizen

“I think it’s nothing more than the way the Marines do business. They approach everything ­ from the way they do business in Washington to how they approach a peacetime program objective ­ like it’s a combat operation, and it’s one of the reasons they are so darned successful.” — U.S. Navy SEAL Commander Mark Divine

Also, take note of of the last photo in Zombietime’s collection of the Code Pink Moonbats “protest.” As soon as they punch the clock and leave, a Marine smartly polices the area.
