Skip to comments.Treasonatrix Barbie: Meet the Real Marla Ruzicka - (the Jane Fonda of our war on terror)
Posted on 04/22/2005 11:57:14 AM PDT by CHARLITE
When The New York Times, Nightline, and CNN nominate a young blonde for sainthood ahead of the Pope, its time for a reality check.
Especially when that blonde, Marla Ruzickas sole purpose is to legitimize our enemies, cause problems for U.S. troops already in harms way, and morally equivocate dead terrorists with victims of 9/11.
Jane Fonda litebut unfortunately without having been spat upon by right-thinking veterans.
The recent death of Ruzicka, an American activist in Iraq, elicited an orgy of gusheverywhere from Time Magazine to The Guardian of London to Al-Jazeera.
A 28-year-old San Franciscan, Ruzicka was in Iraq to help the Iraqi people, proclaim the multi-orgasmic mainstream media memorials to her. Even the Wall Street Journals normally excellent Robert Pollock mourned Ambassador Marla for being a less gnarly America-hater than the others.
Et tu, Robert?
With her cascading blonde hair and youthful looks, Ruzicka didnt look like your average greasy-haired, pot-smoking, hackey-sack-playing, crunchy radical. And the media swooned over her, the newly-anointed Vanity Fair pin-up in Birkenstocks.
But looks are deceiving. Marla Ruzicka was nothing more than a traitor cross-dressing as a peace activist.
She formed the Campaign for Innocent Victims in Conflict (CIVIC), the goal of which was anything but CIVIC during the War on Terror or ever. Ruzickas aim was to force the U.S. government to get an accurate count of innocent civilian deaths by U.S. troops and blackmail America into paying monetary settlements for each death.
But many of those dead included assorted terrorists, jihadists, and other collaborators and uprisers against Americans. Ruzicka had the gall to insist that these Afghani and Iraqi dead, terrorists or not, get recognition and sympathy equal to victims of the 9/11 attacks.
More outrageous, Ruzicka got taxpayer money to fund her aiding-and-abetting pursuits. Where was Marla Ruzicka on 9/11? Hint: Not asking Al-Qaeda for money to count and compensate U.S. victims of terror.
Ruzicka began as a professional protester for left-wing groups in her native San Francisco. First, she was active with the anti-capitalist, anti-business Rainforest Action Network activist. Then, she was an AIDS activist, interrupting an AIDS-related speech by Colin Powell. As an anti-Bush protester, she wore a sarong with a protest-statement visible after she ripped it off her body in front of the then-Texas Governor.
Eventually, Ruzicka joined far-left Human Rights Watch and Global Exchange, falling down another rung in bad fashion taste and dumping the sarong for a hijab, as she traveled first to Afghanistan and then to Iraq. She didnt wear the hijab out of any new-found sense of Pan-Arabia modesty, but rather to be down with her new Islamist homies.
Ruzicka went to Iraq as an activist for Code Pink, which is more aptly titled Code Pinko by FrontPageMag.com writer Jean Pearce. Code Pink is an assortment of neo-Commie America-haters who love Fidel Castro (and Cuba under him) and Marxist Sandinista thugs (thankfully, long ago deposed) and have ties to environmental terrorist groups (Animal Liberation Front and Environmental Liberation Front).
Thats bad enough.
But in Iraq, where Ruzicka traveled with the group, Code Pink functioned as a Pro-Saddamand now pro-Insurgentgroup of traitorous Americans. Code Pink was in Iraq in October 2002, months before U.S. troops went in to the country, the following March. The darlings of Al-Jazeera (and our own media, unfortunately) Code Pinkos acted as human shields and anti-American protesters in the Iraqi streets, much to Saddam Husseins delight.
But it gets worse.
Remember the Americans burnt to a crisp and hung from a bridge in the Fallujah uprising? Code Pink donated over $650,000 to those Fallujah terrorists (Code Pinkos call them refugees.)
Back on U.S. soil, Code Pink harasses badly wounded American soldiers, protesting them outside the Walter Reed medical facility in Washington, DC. Code Pinkos disrupted last weeks Congressional confirmation hearings on UN Ambassador nominee John Bolton, shouting and unfurling banners against him. They are also shadowing military recruiters to foil recruiting efforts. The upside: there wont be enough soldiers to protect Code Pinkos rights and freedoms.
This is Marla Ruzickas beloved Code Pink. Its time to stop worshipping at the alter of this false heroine.
There are plenty of young American men and women Ruzickas age and younger whove been brutalized or killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. But none of them got the wall-to-wall fawning coverage that Ruzicka gotunless they were anally raped or formerly played pro football.
That should tell you something about the medias outlook on whose life is more worthy and whose death is more important: American soldiers fighting for freedombad; vociferous activist bimbette hampering those American soldiers and helping their terrorist killersvery, very good.
While its a sad day when any American gets killed by Islamic terrorists, its measurably less sad when that American aided and abetted themand belittled our troops.
For Marla Ruzicka, a/k/a Treasonatrix Barbie, some might call it, poetic justice.
This excellent article was already posted.
TreasonousBarbarella with a Renee Zellweger cutesy face..
At least this one is dead and can't do more damage..
She's got a long way to go 'til Renee Zellweger. Kinda got that Rachel "Saint Pancake" Corrie look. You know, the "Wash Me" look.
Rachel Corrie and Marla Ruzicka will sure have a lot to talk about on the other side, won't they?
I wonder if both of 'em will agree on this one point:
1. We stuck our nose into other people's business and ended up getting killed for it.
What an astute observation. I've been searching for that description. You've nailed it. But then, who else is Coulter's equal?........maybe Michelle Malkin and Mona Cheren, eh?
"Anybody up for talking about Halliburton..."
Wrong site, nebbish - try DU.
Aren't you cute!
You signed up just now to ask me that and yet you know nothing about me.
The answer to your question is "Yes".
Check it out! RKBA PING!
so was charles manson. Your point?
You don't know tiamat, so why the challenge?
Simple rampant butt-hole-ism is my guess!
Why the phony screen name? You wouldn't make a pimple on the butt of a real 1776 Minute Man, or any other patriot. I suggest you change it immediately to 1917leninbuttboy, or 1959castrocrud, much more appropriate and honest.
