Verbatim transcript of Suzie "Medea" Benjamin's speech follows:
Bush says Code Red, we say... (crowd) Code Pink!
So I wanna address that sign over there, and those people who have been standing there for hours with a sign that says Code Pink kills American troops, giving money to terrorists.
Now what I think that refers to is that after George Bush quote won the election on November second, he said This is a mandate for the war in Iraq, and he sent our troops into Fallujah to destroy the entire city of 300,000 people, and we said not in our name! And we collected $650,000 worth of materials and took it to the women and children of Fallujah.
We are here to say loud and clear We love the US troops, and thats why we want them back home.
We are here to say loud and clear We love the Iraqis, and thats why we want the US troops to come home.
Now, George Bush talks about a wave of democracy in the Middle East. What you dont hear about is the wave of democracy happening around the world, wherein wherein country after country people are forcing their governments to leave the quote coalition of the willing and bring their troops home.
It happened in Honduras. It happened in Nicaragua. It happened in the Dominican Republic. It happened in the Philipines. In Thailand. In the Netherlands. And most recently, the Italian people are forcing Berlusconi to bring the troops home.
Let us learn from the people of Spain, who when they had that tragic terrorist attack one year ago, said
they got out on the streets massively, and they said no to terrorism. No to war. No to all forms of violence. They threw out a government that lied to them and they brought their troops home. We can do it too.
That is the wave of democracy we wanna see. We invite our brothers and sisters in the military to join us in a nonviolent revolution in this country that will sweep away Alberto Gonzales who says the Geneva Conventions are quaint. That will sweep away...
(Medea is rattled as crowd in distance cheers Code Pink kills, Code Pink kills.)
...that will sweep away Paul Wolfowitz and take him out of the World Bank.
That will say John Bolton will not be our representative at the United Nations (crowd cheers), and that says we want people in power who will deal with the world not like the global gendarme, but show kindness, humility, love, and compassion, that we in this country want to spread throughout the world, Its not only the right moral position, it is the only thing that will make us safe at home. Thank you, Code Pink.
(crowd cheers, Medea leaves, and Chuck Fager begins to speak)
Isnt it amazing how Medea just kinda mellows you out? Calms you down there? Now we gotta thank you Medea, we gotta move right along here, and next...
(crowd in distance cheers Code Pink kills)
...Im gonna introduce Patricia Roberts, who lives in Covington, Georgia
Covington, Georgia. Her son was Army Specialist Jamal Rashard Addison (sp?) And he was killed near Nazarea in the opening days of the war in Iraq. And you folks over there, how bout showing some respect for the dead... some respect for the dead victims of this war. He was killed near Nazarea in the opening days of the war in Iraq, and Patricia Roberts is now raising her grandchildren, Christian Constance Addison and Jamal Rashard Addison the second. Now those folks over there dont have any respect for those whos made the ultimate sacrifice in this war. Lets show some for Patricia Roberts. Patricia...
Note: We continued our chants of Code Pink Kills, after Medea left the stage and Chuck Fager introduced his next speaker, because Medea and her Code Pink gang were still standing alongside the stage. We were very much focused on making our point, and a lot of noise with our chanting, and we werent paying attention to what Chuck Fager was saying from the stage. When we realized that the new speaker on the stage was a mother whose son was killed in Iraq, we changed our chant to USA, USA, to voice our support for our fellow American who gave his life for his (our) country.
Hear Medea Benjamin's speech, and Freepers in the background.
When we saw Medea and Code Pink take the stage, we raised our voices as one, and began five or more minutes of chanting non-stop "Code Pink Kills, Code Pink Kills." Those of us with bullhorns used them, those with plastic megaphones used them. And those without either simply shouted as loud as they could. And we were heard.
Medea Benjamin, Gael Murphy and other Code Pinkos pride themselves on infiltrating and disrupting many events, including the Republican and Democrat conventions, the Inaugural Swearing-in ceremony, Senate Hearings, press conferences, and "Pink Slip banner drops" from buildings.
Well, this time we got the drop on them. And they didn't like it, at all.
Well done !
For some reason, I like knowing what my enemies look like. I look carefully and try to find an ounce of human being in them. I see none.
Great job! Wish I'd been there.
I like it when the communist Left who hate America, get their nose rubbed in it. They never expect anyone to stand up to them, as they had from 1917 in the Soviet Union until the Counter Revolution.
How do you stand having to listen to this simple-minded rhetoric.
We may have to re-name the, "Code Brown", considering there probably was a needed underwear change for most of them, when they got confronted face to face with their own tactics and with the TRUTH.
Great! Nothing like a little counter protest activism to get under the skin of the pinkos.
Love the looks on the faces of the law enforcement officers! (Adding Photoshop'd thought balloons would be cool...)
Code Pink was not listed on the program - they were either a surprise for the crowd or they were added on-the-spot because of our MOAB.
I am constantly amazed at the ignorance of folks like Code Pink. I really do think they they are convinced that they are doing a right and wonderful thing---they are just so terribly, terribly wrong!
From the pictures it looks like they had a poor turnout. Thankfully. You all are wonderful. Thank You.
The Old North State Chapter did a lot of prep work and got the word out to many folks in NC, as did the SC Chapter folks. I think Huber said that he counted 200 at our peak. When Code Pink took the stage I think we had a hundred still on site; all with massive lung power and titanium vocal cords, it seems.
I love you guys.
The MOAB made them MAD! The truth HURTS!
