Code Pink Gone Wild: Video Report of Protest at Home of Sec. Rumsfeld
D.C. Chapter via Google Video ^ | Sunday, May 21, 2006 | D.C. Chapter of Free Republic

Posted on 05/22/2006 5:35:46 PM PDT by kristinn

They call themselves peaceful, saying they abhor violence and war. They gatecrash and disrupt hearings, fundraisers and other events, shouting that it is their constitutional right to do so; but woe unto those who dare to speak out against them.

Code Pink and its leaders are violent. They physically attack counter-demonstrators, they destroy other people's property. Code Pink's leaders Medea Benjamin, Gael Murphy and Allison Yorra all participated in the violence on this day.

Here is just a small part of the video we shot of their "peace demonstration" on May 18, 2006 at the home of U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.

Stay tuned for more....

Video is 5 min 54 sec.

We need to get those Harley riders who have been taking on Fred Phelps and his motley crew to have a little "Come To Jesus" meeting with Code Pink.

Nice video. Is that assault AND battery or just simple assault? How many of these hags are on probation? Guess it doesn't matter anymore does it...

Thuggery, nice to know the tactics of the statists have ben the same since the beginning of states. If someone disagrees with what they think the state should do whether they call themselves royalty, or Laandsraad, or clergy, or marxist, to be against them is to open yourself to physical attacks.

These scum bag nut jobs should be rotting in jail somewhere. If it weren't for the sacrifice of soldiers, these morons wouldn't have the freedom to conduct their ridiculous "protests."

Code Pink's Logo for one of their worshipful tours to Cuba, with private audience with billionaire Fidel.

At the same time, Cuban pro-democracy protestors get the cr*p beaten out of them by the Castro thugs adored by Code Pink. And hauled away for long prison terms. Code Pink has no interest in democracy, supporting only marxism and totalitarianism.

It's rare that the Code Pink leaders get prosecuted. However one, Diane Wilson, just completed a few months' stretch in Texas. Most of the time they either aren't charged or are given a minor charge that is dismissed in court.

I don't attend protests due to my short fuse and short temper. Yes, they have a right to be Anti-American and I have the right to serve ten life sentences for "correcting" them. ;-)

That's what I figured. Sheehan has been arrested how many times this year and yet she is still attending these misfit seminars.

BTW, thank you for all the great work you guys do.

After watching your video, I have to apologize for not watching your back, or front, more. We need a buddy system for these events.

This just shows that we need more FReepers out to these events to help each other stay safe. The small police contingent had to protect Rumsfeld's house. By the time reinforcements showed up, we could have been "damaged".

What is lacking, is having someone videotape whoever was videotaping them. The assaults would be far clearer.

Why wasn't that pink umbrella pinkie, who was perched on the wall, made to move back? I thought I heard the officer giving her a last warning.

It's kind of too bad IMHO that someone felt to go get in her face and heckle at the pinkies to begin with.

That's the kind of behavior we don't like from them, and they would look so much more stupid if everyone ignored them for the useless lumps they are.

Nicely done!

Are you sure that wasn't Janine Garofalo (or however her name is spelled, I can't be bothered to look it up)? Looks just like her and sounds almost as grating.

The peace protesters didn't make themselves look stupid during Vietnam. The "silent majority" sat on their a## while they became emboldened. Then our troops got spit on. And the troops were mostly draftees who could not control if they were drafted or not.

Some of us have vowed never to let that happen again. And I believe that we are having a positive affect on these protest not getting out of hand. The sheep who come to these events see what is going on and hear what we have to say. We've seen a good number of them leave protests before it is done. Without us there, the antiwar demonstrations would be growing a lot more than it is.

Scum bag nut jobs? Probably. But these people are determined Marxists who have thrown in their lot with the Islamofascists. The media calls them leftists. However, it is now obvious that a good percentage of the media newsmakers have thrown in their lot with the Marxists and Islamofascists.

I believe it would be simple assault unless the victim was hurt in some manner. My Father was a high school teacher for about 25 years, and once he and another teacher had to restrain a student. He took a swing at me father but since he didn't hurt him, the student was charged with simple assault.

Of course he wasn't a member of a protected class like code pink is, so getting him charged and convicted was a simple matter. Doing the same to that scurvy bunch Code Pink, next to impossible.

It would appear the police tend to "ignore" personal scuffles between factions for whatever reason...

Maybe it's time to kick it up a notch and file charges whenever they launch attacks. Clearly the video caught it all so IMO, you have proof of her assault. Right?

Why not sue her?

I really do agree with you [Mr]T, I just would like to see those that carry banners that I want to get behind also be setting a example of rationality and maturity. I think the observers notice that just as much as they do the slogans and signs.

I've said it before, I'll say it again. You deserve a medal. So does tgslTakoma. People don't understand what it is like to stand toe-to-toe against these marxist thugs who will attempt to provoke you in any way, even shove you and hit you, to do something that they can use against you or have you criminally charged. That you keep standing up, again and again, against these traitors is a testament to your tenacious support for America and its brave military. That you two can so successfully plan, organize, and execute these operations is laudable. It has been an honor to stand with you in such situations and to learn from your excellent examples. Stand strong. Keep fighting our domestic enemies - the enemies within.

I believe it was Michael Savage who once said, "Liberalism is a form of mental illness." These pinkies seem to be proving him correct.

We do have civil counter protests. 55 Weeks at Walter Reed, 21 weeks in Olney, MD, over a year in Columbia, MO., to name a few. We have our antics at these but for the most part they are civil.

Sometimes you need to disrupt them, especially when it is a media event. We chanted our slogans when the moonbats were talking to the press, messing up their sound bits.

The real problem arose when Takoma was video taping them. All they had to do was to let us tape them. After all, they are a "peace group".

But as one knows, if it doesn't bleed, it doesn't lead. The MSM would never cover our peaceful counter rallies.

Take care.

Cindy Sheehan has been arrested on 2 charges!

impersonating a Human being
being ugly in a public place

These crimes call out for the most sever punishment - the 'wet willie' and a 'Melvin'.
