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.
Bump for that!
I think they know good and d*** well what "fungible" means. So does their audience. These people are evil, not stupid.
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh "giving money to terrorists"
For some reason I kept read that "giving 2 dollars terrorists"
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?
(Prolonged eye roll.)

lol! I meant to commend you on your successful Freep of the Trolls in Florida! The photos and the recounting of the day was excellent and engaging, and truly courageous. Florida, like CA and NY, can be a rough place to make a conservative Patriotic Stand; but you did Freepers in FLA; and you did it well.!
At one point (IMO) it was possible to be agianst this invasion and still be sane and honorable, but that point is LOOOONG past. Code Pink=moral midgets
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.
If you want on the list, FReepmail me. This IS a high-volume PING list...
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...
Thanks for the praise, though!
Did I send you the pictures from that event?
-good times, G.J.P. (Jr.)
