Posted on 06/26/2005 4:05:03 PM PDT by kristinn
Code Pink leader Jodie Evans, in a blog posted from the World Tribunal on Iraq, today gave her open support to the terrorists in Iraq who are killing American soldiers and Iraqis
While some may wonder, "is this news?" it is, indeed. Code Pink has been very careful over the past three years to maintain a front of being a peace group. In fact, it's complete name is Code Pink Women for Peace. The veil slipped when co-leader Medea Benjamin shot her mouth off in Jordan last December when she proclaimed the group was giving $600,000 in cash and aid to the families of "the other side" in Fallujah.
Recently, Code Pink has been holding weekly Friday night vigils at the main gate to Walter Reed Army Medical Center to express their phony support for the men and women recuperating from their war wounds. I wonder how the soldiers and families at Walter Reed will take the news that the pink sign holding people have given their support to the terrorists in Iraq.
The D.C. Chapter will be sure to tell them at our next patriotic counter-demonstration there.
Here are Jodie Evans' remarks, preserved for posterity:
We must begin by really standing with the Iraqi people and their right to resist. I can remain myself against all forms of violence, and yet I cannot judge what someone has to do when pushed to the wall to protect all they love. What does the Iraqi resistance have to lose? They are fighting for their country, to protect their families and to preserve all they love. They are fighting for their lives, and we are fighting for lies. It is so amazingly obvious; we must get out of Iraq now. They will rebuild their country, it will take time, a long time, but they cannot start until we are gone.
Code Pink now joins ANSWER as publicly endorsing the terrorists. This has been a sticking point between ANSWER on one side and Code Pink and United for Peace and Justice on the other. I expect them all to support the terrorists publicly by the time Sept. 24-26 rolls around in Washington, D.C.
The leftists are planning "non-violent direct action and civil disobedience" in D.C. on Monday Sept. 26. When they tried that two years ago, the D.C. police swiftly disrupted their plans by arresting leftist protesters demonstrating without a permit. Since then, successful lawsuits were filed against the D.C. police and the D.C. City Council passed a law severely restricting the cops' ability to preserve law and order in the city when protests get out of hand.
Code Pink will be there and I'm sure their terrorist allies will be cheering them on.
If we want to be victorious in the war on terrorists, we must redouble our efforts stateside to win the battle for national morale.
Agreed. And the Left wonders why we question their patriotism......
Traitors at the Gate, PING!
The Democrats have allied themselves with Michael Moore and Code Pink. That's just part of why I know the Democrats are not patriots anymore.
I dunno. The D.C. Chapter is working on our plans for that weekend. We'll be there just as we have been on numerous occasions since Sept. 29, 2001 to counter these anti-American dirtbags with either a rally, protest or both.
Thanks for the informative post.
There's legitimate dissent, then there's going to the battle ground, meeting with the enemy, and actively abbeting them a la John Kerry. The former is constitutionally protected; the latter, which includes the rat bastards at Code Pink, is treason.
The anti-war movement is showing its true color (and I find it little coincidence that this color is the very color of the pro-sodomy-legalization movement), and its members aren't even in the closet anymore about wanting our enemies to win. Ironic, that the only think the ass-hats on the left pray for is America's defeat in war.
When is President Bush going to speak out against this traitorous activity? He seems able to fight the enemy abroad but has no stomach for taking on the seditious organizations acting under his nose.
Bush gives support to Saudi's, who are fueling this insurgency with men, materiel and money...
Which is worse?
The media won't report on their 'vigil' because it's too embarrassing for the antiwar movement.
They're not at the gate, they're already way deep inside into every facet of American life.
Agree absolutely. Patriots must show our support to the President and our troops on the ground. And we must never underestimate the opposition just because they're stupid. Being right does not mean we will prevail.
Give me a brake! Have a real argument or as you say just shut up!
Isn't giving money to the enemy families traitorous and illegal ?
Those words should be synonomous, but haven't been being treated that way as we can reviw and name several still free and prominent traitors, i.e. Jane Fonda and a recent candidate for President to name two.
Man, that's the ultimate in understatement. My questions about liberal motivation has nothing to do with patriotism. It's all about their status as traitors.
Problem is, we don't have anyone in DC with the stones to prosecute these vermin.
