Code Pinko Medea Benjamin has COW over Freeper MOAB (Fayetteville, NC - 3/19/2005)
If her lips are moving... ^ | March 19, 2005 | Suzie Benjamin

The sign that got Code Pinko leaders Medea Benjamin and Gael Murphy so upset that day.



Medea and the rest of the Code Pinkos take the stage

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.
(crowd cheers)

We are here to say loud and clear “We love the US troops, and that’s why we want them back home.”
(crowd cheers)

We are here to say loud and clear “We love the Iraqis, and that’s why we want the US troops to come home.”
(crowd cheers)

Now, George Bush talks about a wave of democracy in the Middle East. What you don’t 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.
(crowd cheers)

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.
(crowd cheers)

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.
(crowd cheers)

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.
(crowd cheers)

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, It’s 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)

Isn’t 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”)

...I’m 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 don’t have any respect for those who’s made the ultimate sacrifice in this war. Let’s show some for Patricia Roberts. Patricia...
(crowd cheers)

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 weren’t 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.

Someone should educate Code Pink on the meaning of the word "fungible" if they think they haven't given money to terrorists.

Right, our troops will really appreciate having to fight terrorists here in our own cities and neighborhoods with the ACLU and Nancy Pelosi condemning every effort to stop them. You bet, let's bring our troops home so that the terrorists are free to use the rest of the world as a training and staging ground for attacks on our own soil. Brilliant!

I can just see the Pentagon following the policy prescriptions of Ms. Benjamin.

After all, why would a potential Islamic radical be deterred by a Daisy Cutter, when we could just as easily bombard him with a fusillade of precision-guided compassion?

They want the troops home because they believe Americans will keep a war-time party in power rather than change horses mid-stream. It's all about politics. If they could get elected during war time, we'd never know peace.

You know the "body politic" of the liberals so well, MabelKitty:

If they could get elected during war time, we'd never know peace.

Democrats do not do what they should when they are in power. But the cowardly wonders would like nothing more than to steal or seize the current state of affairs (like WOT) and to continue to profit and line their pockets on this war; meanwhile saying -- Those Republicans -- They did this to us!

Those lib-dem dirty sneaks... Cowardly, conniving, snivering, slavering...

Kudos for a job well done!

I actually met a Code Pinker in person once, not realizing until later she was part of Code Pink, but I recognized she was a wingnut at the time. Her whole attitude was bash America, slam everything about it, and offer NO solutions to problems in the world. Also a bunch of garbage about our troops doing "terrible things", but when I called her on it, she indignantly declared that she SUPPORTS our troops. All this, and we met in a social setting amongst mutual friends, not at a protest!

Also, you know these people are mental when they even think KERRY is too far to the right, lol!

I look forward to YOUR after-action threads. (if any)

Until then, perhaps you could learn something from Theodore Roosevelt:

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face in marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly;

who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement,

and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."

Just wondering whether these gals would be wearing Pink Burkhas with Sadaam or other terrorists?

Next time these as..holes show up anywhere we should get some of our Freeprs TO dress up in Pink Burkhas with signs that say " PINK CODE UNDER THE TERRORISTS ! ha.

That would be the "Mother of all BANNERS" -- as described HERE:

The PAJAMAHADEEN COOKBOOK:
Chapter One - Making a MOAB in your own backyard!

DC Chapter ^ | October 4, 2004 | anonymous PAJAMAHADEEN members
Posted on 10/04/2004 8:47:40 PM PDT by tgslTakoma

I have received many requests for directions on how to build a MOAB (aka: "Mother Of All Banners"), so I decided to write this article.

Before I get into the construction instructions, a brief history:

As the name suggests, a MOAB is big, bold and packs a mighty powerful punch. Best of all, they are easy and affordable to make.


The first MOABs were used in Washington, DC, on October 25, 2003 at a Support the Troops rally at the US Capitol, and again that same day on a hill in Pershing Park at a counterprotest of a communist-sponsored "anti-war" march.


When I made my first MOAB, I really didn't know what I was doing. I had an idea of what I wanted to make, but not much time to problem solve some important construction issues, namely - how in the world will these 22' long by 5' high banners be mounted on a support structure?

The first MOABs were attached to 12' tall bamboo poles (supplied by BillF), but they were very heavy (requiring 4 manly men to hold them at all times), and they were a real bear to transport. So I needed a better idea.

When members of the DC Chapter decided to make a road trip to Fayetteville, NC, to stand with NC Freepers on March 20, 2004 against terrorist-supporting leftists outside of Fort Bragg, I got some excellent construction advice from Fred Mertz and a good friend of his. They told me to leave the bamboo at home and they would construct support poles out of 3/4" PVC pipe...
