Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin, who can turn the air blue when shouting chants against American Marines called out for the Marines in front of Marine Recruiting offices in Berkeley yesterday.
Eamon Kelley, the young Marine who is featured in Move America Forwards TV commercial that ran on Fox News earlier this week, could hardly believe his own ears when Benjamin called on the Marines for help.
Kelley, who is recovering from back surgery, spent his day in Berkeley, where CodePink continues with Berkeley councils blessing, to keep a virtual blockade at the recruit center, expanding its efforts to harass American troops and to turn back any young Americans looking to enlist.
City Council stubbornly refuses to apologize and continues to subsidize free parking for CodePink to drive soldiers out of town.
While we were at the protest in Berkeley from 12 to 4 p.m., a white Volvo drove by and a man spat upon CodePink, Kelley wrote in an email to MAFs Melanie Morgan. They chased him down the street and got into a verbal altercation. The police were NOWHERE in sight.
Thats not the best part, ready for this?
Medea Benjamin yelled and I quote Marines! She actually yelled for our help because this man had stepped out of his car. I even asked her if she was yelling Police and she told me, I said Marines then put her arm around my friend Allen (the Marine Vet). Ironic?
Benjamin, who turned on her former close friend, San Francisco Bay Area activist Maria Ruzicka, later killed in Iraq in a widely-publicized suicide bombing, over Ruzickas decision to work with the U.S. military to secure compensation for the peoples of Iraq and Afghanistan, is on the record for supporting Cuba and Venezuela.

Confusing article. I have no idea what this person is trying to tell us....
That during her anti-Marine protest in Berkeley, Code Pink’s Medea Benjamin asked the Marines to come to her aid when she thought someone was threatening her.
I would have left her to her fate...
I’m guessing the weird lefty rationale is that the Pinkos really like the young, stupid, misguided Marines. They are just being grossly misled by BusHitler and HIS greedy war for oil profits.
Have I got that right?
The last paragraph is completely irrelevant.
Readers and editors hardest hit.
The reporterett must need to return to English as second language class...her point was that the Code Pink beich had no confidence in the effeminate Berkley LE and thus wanted the manly but flawed Marine to assist her>>>>???
When in trouble she should call a hippie to protect her.
Judi McCleod is the author. Maybe if you try reading it with a Scottich accent it will make sense.
Waht hapaned in taht sorty i dnot get it
The Marine should have said to Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin, “We support Code Pink, but not your individual mission. So you are on your own, good luck...”
The anti-Marine person who, when feeling threatened, yelled for a Marine is like the anti-gun person who, when they were threatened, yelled for their gun-owning neighbor.
If we could only convince Al Qaeda those 72 virgins they are waiting for are actually shrill code pinkers we could bring the troops home yesterday.
That during her anti-Marine protest in Berkeley, Code Pinks Medea Benjamin asked the Marines to come to her aid when she thought someone was threatening her.
Sorry, but I would have suddenly had a learing loss.
They just totally lost their case. LOL(LAH)!!!
