Treasonatrix Barbie: Meet the Real Marla Ruzicka - (the Jane Fonda of our war on terror)
DEBBIE SCHLUSSEL.COM ^ | APRIL 21, 2005 | DEBBIE SCHLUSSEL

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, it’s time for a reality check.

Especially when that blonde, Marla Ruzicka’s 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 lite—but unfortunately without having been spat upon by right-thinking veterans.

The recent death of Ruzicka, an American “activist” in Iraq, elicited an orgy of gush—everywhere 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 Journal’s 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 didn’t 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. Ruzicka’s 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 didn’t 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).

That’s bad enough.

But in Iraq, where Ruzicka traveled with the group, Code Pink functioned as a Pro-Saddam—and now pro-Insurgent—group 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 Hussein’s 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 week’s 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 won’t be enough soldiers to protect Code Pinkos’ rights and freedoms.

This is Marla Ruzicka’s beloved Code Pink. It’s time to stop worshipping at the alter of this false heroine.

There are plenty of young American men and women Ruzicka’s age and younger who’ve been brutalized or killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. But none of them got the wall-to-wall fawning coverage that Ruzicka got—unless they were anally raped or formerly played pro football.

That should tell you something about the media’s outlook on whose life is more worthy and whose death is more important: American soldiers fighting for freedom—bad; vociferous activist bimbette hampering those American soldiers and helping their terrorist killers—very, very good.

While it’s a sad day when any American gets killed by Islamic terrorists, it’s measurably less sad when that American aided and abetted them—and belittled our troops.

For Marla Ruzicka, a/k/a Treasonatrix Barbie, some might call it, poetic justice.

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?

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.

So was Stalin. And Carlos the Jackal.

Being committed to something is not necessarily a recommendation.

We also stuck our nose into other peoples business in Iraq. Afghanistan was justified, not so sure about Iraq. And spent 250 billion dollars for it.
Lost 1500 soldiers, wounded 10,000, and killed tens of thousands of Iraqis.

Maybe we should have nuked the place, it would have been cheaper.

Oh, well, guess it would have been too radioactive to get the oil out.

And the govt and business sticks its nose into other peoples lives everyday. What about ChoicePoint and the other data base companies, What about the credit bureaus and their reports that are more often than not wrong. What about government lording it over our medical decisions? What about hospitals keeping people alive so they can wring more money out of people

Should these people die or be killed for it?

These characters are worse than Jane Fonda. The Viet Cong never came HERE and murdered innocent Americans, or flew planes into US buildings. These characters give aid and comfort to a far more dangerous enemy.

You are aptly named.

So if this war is about oil, why did I just pay 2.49 for gas?

Should our troops have to cover busy-bodies who insist on going to Iraq and consorting with the enemy?

I think Iraq was justified simply to undo Saddam and his two boys.

Did you know that the average life expectancy of aan Iraqi citizen has increased by about10 since the start of the war?

Oh hey, it's Saddam's business if he rapes and murders his own people. / sarc

"Oh, well, guess it would have been too radioactive to get the oil out. "

Yeah, that's why the price of gas just went UP you idiot.
You're showing quite a lack of knowledge there.
If it was all about oil, why am I paying MORE for gas in my car?

You need dimethyltriptoline 42.
You can then be commited to lashing out at invisible elves.
Then you will see that merely being commited to a 'cause' doesn't mean the cause is commendable.
