Al Qaeda, Taliban, Obama Allies to 'Risk Arrest' at White House Protest (Inside-Outside Game)
Sunday, September 27, 2009 | Kristinn

Posted on 09/27/2009 10:49:31 AM PDT by kristinn

Leftist anti-American, terrorist-supporting groups have announced they will hold a "non-violent direct action" protest at the White House on Monday, October 5th calling for the complete withdrawal of American forces from the Afghanistan and Pakistan theaters in the war on terror, thereby giving victory to al Qaeda and the Taliban.

One of the groups leaders is Code Pink's Jodie Evans, an early and top financier of Barack Obama's presidential campaign. The millionairess Evans is an acknowledged expert in playing the inside-outside game of radical politics--playing the radical on the streets while being chauffered in a Cadillac Escalade to high-level meetings with Democrat politicians.

Evans also works with Venezuela's Hugo Chavez, the Castro government of Cuba and Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, having praised the state sponsor of terrorism as "as really about peace and human rights" after she met with him last year in between meetings with Obama. Evans and Code Pink visited Iran as guests of Ahmadinejad a few weeks after Obama was elected president last November.

Evans and Code Pink also endorsed and funded the terrorists in Iraq.

The day of the protest, October 5th, is also the last day of Code Pink's weeklong trip to Afghanistan to meet the "resistance".

(Another inside outside player is Van Jones, the former Obama appointee who is a friend and ally of Code Pink and served with Evans on the board of the Rainforest Action Network in 2005.)

Gold Star Mother and leftist tool Cindy Sheehan is scheduled to participate in the protest. Sheehan's protest of Obama during his Martha's Vineyard vacation this past August was overshadowed by the death of Sen. Ted Kennedy at nearby Hyannis Port.

According to a press release issued today, the following groups are participating in the protest: National Campaign for Nonviolent Resistance, Code Pink, Peace Action, the Black is Back Coalition, Progressive Democrats of America, the War Resisters League, the Washington Peace Center, World Can’t Wait, Veterans for Peace, and Voices for Creative Nonviolence.

The World Can't Wait is a front for the Maoist cult group, the Revolutionary Communist Party.

Veterans for Peace is a communist front group that has supported the Sandinistas, Fidel Castro and Saddam Hussein.

The Progessive Democrats of America (PDA) has seven Democratic Comgressmen on its advisory board: Reps. John Conyers, Donna Edwards, Raul Grijalva, Barbara Lee, Maxine Waters, Jim McGovern and Lynn Woolsey.

Also on the PDA's board are Code Pink co-founders Medea Benjamin and Obama financier Jodie Evans.

The press release includes language sympathetic to the terrorists killing our soldiers:

"The war increasingly appears unwinnable, unnecessary, and misguided, draining American lives and resources, causing immense suffering among Afghan civilians, and rallying a broad-based insurgency whose main goal is to end the US occupation — not to engage in long-range terrorist attacks against the United States."

The groups plan to hold a rally a few blocks from the White House at McPherson Square at 10:30 a.m. on October 5th, followed by a photo-op at the Monica Gate at the White House at 11:45 a.m. where they will attempt to deliver a letter demanding a meeting with Obama.

If Obama does not immediately agree to a meeting, the protesters state they are willing to "risk arrest, in the tradition of Gandhi, Dr. King, and Dorothy Day, in order to persuade the commander-in-chief to meet their demands"

Their demands include U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan and Pakistan "as soon as possible", closing terrorist detention facilities at Bagram and Guantanamo, trying suspected terrorists in civilian courts and the usual books not bombs leftist agit-prop.

The left has been working to weaken the political will to fight the war on terror since the days after the terror attacks of September 11, 2001. They believe their moment has arrived with a fellow leftist in the White House and emerging alliances of far-left and far-right politicans and thinkers like Reps. Alan Grayson and Ron Paul and commentators Katrina Vanden Huevel and George Will.

Obama's unstated strategy of softening public support for the war by not seeking public support and callously treating his hand-picked Afghan war commander, Gen. Stanley McCrystal, is paying off as polls (spit!) show public support falling.

Americans have spent more years watching new episodes of The Simpsons cartoons (1987-present) and Law & Order (1990-present) than they have spent watching the war on terror (2001-present) (Only 2-3 percent of 300 million Americans have actually participated in the war.)

Unlike the world of fictional TV shows, real Americans will die if Obama cancels the war on terror.

The anti-American left is counting on Americans having less stamina to win a war for our survival than we have to watch The Simpsons and Law & Order.

Hopefully, patriotic Americans will show up at the White House on October 5th to counter the leftists and stand up for our troops and America.

From David Horowitz's FrontpageMag.com /DiscoverTheNetworks.org:

"Throughout its history, one of RCP's [Revolutionary Communist Party] principal objectives has been to foment civil unrest in the United States. The most notable example of such efforts occurred on April 29, 1992, when RCP members looted and trashed the downtown and government districts of Los Angeles, triggering the infamous Rodney King riots. During the days immediately preceding the violence, RCP -- which maintained close ties to the L.A. gangs known as the Crips and the Bloods -- had circulated throughout South Central Los Angeles a leaflet featuring a statement by RCP National Spokesman Carl Dix, titled 'It's Right To Rebel' -- a quote popularized by Mao Zedong.

Encouraged by Dix, RCP activists helped lead the riots that would leave 58 people dead, more than 2,300 people injured, some 5,300 buildings burned, and $1 billion in property damaged or destroyed. On the ten-year anniversary of the rioting, RCP member Joseph Veale fondly recalled the violence as 'the most beautiful, the most heroic civil action in the history of the United States.'"

And they're all protesting right outside the White House?

This is ideal! Obama can set up a recruiting/hiring booth right there and hire the next round of White House "Czars" on the spot.

"Ayers, now a tenured distinguished professor of education at UIC, works to educate teachers in socialist revolutionary ideology, urging that it be passed on to impressionable students.

One of Ayer's descriptions for a course called 'Improving Learning Environments' says prospective K-12 teachers need to 'be aware of the social and moral universe we inhabit and ... be a teacher capable of hope and struggle, outrage and action, teaching for social justice and liberation.

The Annenberg papers are quite extensive — 132 boxes containing 947 file folders with 70 linear feet of material. They undoubtedly contain more surprises regarding Obama's relationship with Ayers, one of many relationships Obama has sought to hide.'..."

Let's see... the media needed to find someone to play along with their Haditha madness so who better than the... discredited, delusional, blaming, angry, and paranoid Colonel Janis Karpinski of Abu Ghraib fame who has mysteriously moved from villainess to hero in the eyes of the mainstream media.

Well, maybe not so mysterious since Karpinski is now a crowd favorite for the Far Left enthusiasts.

Karpinski with fellow extremist and Castro supporter Harry Belafonte at the January "International Commission of Inquiry On Crimes Against Humanity Committed by the Bush Administration"


Colonel Karpinski is a definite crowd pleaser with the anti-war crowd for her strange attacks on the military and Bush Administration.

Thanks for your fine additions to this thread. Here is the text of a letter to the White House they posted last week:

September 15, 2009

President Barack Obama

The White House

1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW

Washington, D.C. 20500

Dear president Obama:

We are writing on behalf of the National Campaign for Nonviolent Resistance to seek a meeting to discuss the withdrawal of all U.S. troops from Afghanistan. We are greatly concerned that the people of Afghanistan, like the people of Iraq, are suffering greatly from the U.S. invasion and the continued assault on this beleaguered country.

We feel you are stuck in the same trap, which ensnared President Lyndon Johnson. His decision to continue that awful war in Vietnam brought down his presidency. He failed to listen to the peace movement, and history has not been kind to him.

Today's peace movement is baffled by your persistence to wage war on the people of Afghanistan. Not only is your policy flawed, but it is doomed to failure. Afghanistan surely does not need more killing and destruction. It needs financial assistance and the willingness of the United States to build roads, schools and clinics. The people, especially the women and children, need food, medicine, shelter and an end to the fighting. Moreover, the U.S. military is unsuited to do humanitarian work in Afghanistan.

Please meet with us as soon as possible in order to explain your exit strategy, which must include a plan to provide aid and reconstruction in Afghanistan through nongovernmental organizations. After dialogue with a variety of people in Afghanistan, the U.S. government would then fund international efforts to assist Afghans with the rebuilding of their decimated infrastructure. This would include the funding of medical assistance needed to care for hundreds of thousands of people seriously wounded since the invasion in October 2001.

We protested the belligerency of the Bush administration, and now we are demonstrating against your misguided efforts in Afghanistan. We are mystified that in the midst of a horrible economic crisis, you are wasting precious tax dollars and other resources in a futile war without end. To call this a war of necessity is an attempt to rewrite history.

Develop time lines for the withdrawal of combat troops, close down all military bases, including the notorious prison at Bagram Air Base, and stop the bombing of Pakistan. We need an economic revival in this country, and not a war of choice in Afghanistan. A better use of your time and the country's resources would be to embark on a massive program of promoting clean energy throughout the United States and to get legislation passed guaranteeing health care for all.

Please respond by indicating when and where a meeting can be scheduled. We want to assist you in ending this very tragic chapter in U.S. history. Then you can go about the very painful process of trying to restore the world's trust in the U.S. government. Continuing the war in Afghanistan will further alienate our country from the global community. We look forward to your response and further dialogue.

In peace,

You’re welcome, and thank you for all you do. And for the letter the commies wrote to their comrades in the WH.

From their first announcement back in August:

SNIP

On October 5th, we will gather at 10 AM at McPherson Square for a permitted rally and to hear lifelong war resister and widow of Phil Berrigan, Liz McAlister. From McPherson, we will march to Pennsylvania Avenue. Around noon, the various affinity groups will visit the White House calling for withdrawal of all U.S. troops from Afghanistan and demand an ending of the illegal bombing in Pakistan with US drones and other forms of violence, the closing of the Bagram prison, and an ending to indefinite detention and torture. We are calling for an end to these wars and occupations, including that of Iraq, so that our resources can be used for life-sustaining actions including the funding and the rebuilding of Afghanistan’s and Iraq's infrastructure and medical assistance to Afghans and Iraqis, in addition to poverty reduction programs in the United States and world wide. We are also calling for accountability for those who have committed war crimes.

The White House action is a key component of a number of complimentary actions planned for October.

Take a long look at who you are aligned with Independents and Democrats. It’s not your parents Democrat party any longer.

Get out while you still can. Join us to put these political dogs down at the polls in 2010 and 2012.

I wish that the IRS would pay attention to a few of these protests. These guys really do need to lose their nonprofit status. It really ticks me off giving tax breaks to traitors.

"It was at the Chicago home of [Bill] Ayers and [Bernardine] Dohrn that Obama, then an up-and-coming 'community organizer,' had his political coming out party in 1995. Not content with this rite of passage in Lefty World — where unrepentant terrorists are regarded as progressive luminaries, still working 'only to educate' — both Obamas tended to the relationship with the Ayers."

Welcome to opposite land: where Millionaire Communists complain about how the poor are treated and terrorists have more rights under our Constitution than law abiding citizens.

Never thought I’d see the day. :(

This is so bizarre.

Its almost as surreal as if on would see the IRA “political” mouthpieces get elected and become part of the OPEN Ruling Government.

Just how many terrorists connections, that fund and support him directly, does 0bama have?

Is this Code Pink Limousine ULTRA Liberal going to be the next Czar of something?

Anti-war leftist W.H. protest?
Why not?
It could be nice if the libtards go on weakening and hurting each others! Please let them go ahead! Yes they can do it!
OBAMA pretended that he will focus on AFGHANISTAN in order to destroy AL QAEDA and catch O.Ben Laden...
I think that’s a non sense and the result of a stupid mistake about islamo-terrorism and islamism...But let OBAMA fail ,let libtards destroy each other
