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.
Medea Benjamin likes some wars, just not the ones where the Communists lose.
Good job & thanks, folks!
Great work. Go get those pinkos....let the big dawg hunt!
Someone should educate Code Pink on the meaning of the word "fungible" if they think they haven't given money to terrorists.
Good report! I could not make this one, but I was with y'all in spirit!
The phony peace girls are juat another socialist mob.
BWAHAHAHAHA!! Whatt bunch of Lib'ral dunderheads...we liberated Fallujah from murderous thugs.
Great MOAB, BTW...MUD
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!
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.)
-good times, G.J.P. (Jr.)
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.)
Nice PIC - Hope I can "borrow". Wish I could make that into a poster for work.
Drat! Where is that link...?
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!
Surely he must have masterminded the whole thing, right?
Lord knows nothing can be done without him.
Did you forget to ping Kristinn?
The omniscient need no pings.
But wait! Where is the self-serving Kristinn pic/quote?I look forward to YOUR after-action threads. (if any)
Surely he must have masterminded the whole thing, right?
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.
Dummy Question: Duh, what is the MOAB ?
Dummy Question: Duh, what is the MOAB ?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

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...
For FReepin', MOAB = tgslTakoma's Mother Of All Banners.
LOL. I should have read the context of MOAB first. :^)
Active Freepers are multitask capable. There were many masterminds working in Fayetteville. That's why we won.
Gael Murphy was telling Kristinn that she wanted to have his babies.
Just wait till next year!!!!!!!!..was great to meet ya at the rally!
