An Enemy Within -- Code Pink and Its Democrat Enablers
The American Thinker ^ | October 19, 2010 | Scott Swett

Posted on 10/19/2010 8:14:23 AM PDT by The Shrew

Last week, American Thinker published evidence that Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and Congressmen Henry Waxman (D-CA), Raul Grijalva (D-AZ), and Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) made it possible in 2004 for Code Pink and other radical groups to deliver $600,000 in cash and supplies to enemy insurgents and their families in Fallujah. Two days later, Lt. Col. Robert "Buzz" Patterson posted the diplomatic letter Waxman wrote to assist Code Pink's mission.

Waxman's Republican opponent, Korean War veteran and former Marine Chuck Wilkerson, calls the letter a "smoking gun." He adds, " ... to actively assist getting aid to people who killed and wounded Americans on the battlefield is beyond forgiveness. If aid and comfort were given to the enemy, this borders on treason." Wilkerson is asking the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate whether Waxman is guilty of "aiding and abetting a declared enemy of the United States in a war authorized by the Congress." Attorney General Eric Holder has yet to comment.

Fellow leftists have attempted to defend Code Pink's actions by arguing that the supplies they gave to the insurgents were merely "humanitarian" in nature. The evidence supports a different conclusion. For example, the radical delegation made a point of meeting with associates of radical militia leader Moqtada al-Sadr and other advocates of killing U.S. troops. The supply mission also served as a propaganda coup for U.S. detractors, attracting sympathetic coverage from an array of hostile international media outlets including Al Jazeera and Iranian TV.

Who is Code Pink?

Code Pink presents itself to the public as a group of "Moms" who oppose violence and war. In reality, Code Pink's leaders are not peace activists at all, but dedicated Marxists who for decades have conducted a political war against the American system that targets the U.S. military.

Delivering supplies to America's enemies is not a new occupation for Code Pink's leaders. Founder Medea Benjamin helped create the Institute for Food and Development Policy in the 1980s to support Nicaragua's communist dictatorship in its war against the U.S.-backed Contras. Code Pink's Kirsten Moller and Sandra Brim also worked for IFDP. As the director of Medical Aid, Brim even flew an American neurosurgeon to San Salvador to operate on Revolutionary Party Commander Nidia Diaz, who had been wounded in combat. Two months earlier, Diaz's group had claimed responsibility for the murders of four U.S. Marines and nine civilians.

Medea Benjamin also founded Global Exchange, a forerunner to United for Peace and Justice, the vast "anti-war" coalition led by American Communist Party member Leslie Cagan, and helped organize the destructive 1999 riots against the World Trade Organization and capitalism in Seattle. Benjamin and Cagen teamed up again in 2004 to form Iraq Occupation Watch, which quickly opened a center in Baghdad to encourage American troops to defect and desert.

Code Pink's purpose is to reduce the effectiveness of the U.S. military by all possible means. These include denouncing U.S. troops as war criminals and murderers; manufacturing sympathy for enemy states, groups, and combatants; and coordinating activities with those same enemies. The group works to undermine military recruiting efforts and ROTC programs and lobbies to insert anti-military propaganda into U.S. school curricula. At a typical protest in 2007, Code Pink members and their supporters reportedly defaced a Marine recruiting center in Berkeley with signs slandering our Marines as "traitors" and "assassins."

Perhaps the most contemptible aspect of Code Pink's anti-military jihad has been its relentless harassment of wounded troops at Walter Reed Hospital in Washington, D.C. The group has held dozens of protests in front of the Army Medical Center, loudly chanting slogans and waving signs with thoughtful messages such as "Maimed for Lies." They also lined the sidewalk with a row of mock caskets. Most of Code Pink's hospital demonstrations have been held on Friday evenings, when the recovering soldiers are being visited by their parents, spouses, and children.

Why Fallujah?

Since "humanitarian aid" could have been delivered to any of a dozen war-torn cities in Iraq, why did the leaders of Code Pink and their fellow radicals choose Fallujah?

In late 2004, Fallujah was the last major stronghold of organized resistance to the U.S.-led coalition in Iraq. Long known as a hotbed of insurgent activity, this was the city whose residents had murdered four Blackwater USA security guards the previous March, burned and mutilated their bodies, and strung up two of the corpses on a bridge as a display.

The first attempt in 2004 to control the city had failed, and by November the stage was set for a major military engagement that would cost fifty-one Americans their lives and wound another 560. Such was the environment that inspired Code Pink to collect supplies and cash to support what Medea Benjamin openly described as "the other side."

The evidence clearly indicates that Code Pink's mission gave aid and comfort to America's wartime enemies in Fallujah, a clear-cut act of sedition made possible by the group's allies in Congress -- Democrats Barbara Boxer, Henry Waxman, Raul Grijalva, and Dennis Kucinich.

There are Republican enablers (RINOs) who aid Code Pink as well. Recall the Code Pinko who interrupted McCain’s 2008 nomination acceptance speech at the GOP convention.

Code Pink co-founder Jodie Evans embraces commie
traitor Jane Fonda
__________________________________________________

November 22, 1970 -- During a fund-raising tour for GI deserters, Vietnam Veterans Against the War and the Black Panthers, Jane Fonda is quoted in the Detroit Free Press as telling a University of Michigan audience:

"I would think that if you understood what communism was, you would hope, you would pray on your knees that we would someday become communist," and "The peace proposal of the Viet Cong is the only honorable, just, possible way to achieve peace in Vietnam."
http://www.wintersoldier.com/index.php?topic=Timeline

Fonda made the following statement at the University of Texas:
"We've got to establish a Socialist economic structure that will limit private profit-oriented businesses. Whether the transition is peaceful depends on the way our present governmental leaders react. We must commit our lives to this transition ...... We should be very proud of our new breed of soldier. It's not organized but it's mutiny, and they have every right." --Karen Elliott Dallas Morning News December 11, 1971

From 1972: "I am not a do-gooder, I am a revolutionary. A revolutionary woman."

Thanks for posting this. Those of us who have come into contact with actual Code Pinkos and see what they are really like are not surprised at all.

Most people have forgotten this treason...kudos to you for posting it here.

Your posts regarding Jane Fonda ALWAYS make me steam. I manage to avoid thinking about her most of the time...you have a pretty good collection of links and pics. Keep on posting em’, ETL.

Until, of course, she has gone to her “reward”, whatever that turns out to be.

I maintain that the day the government did not prosecute Jane Fonda for treason the day she set foot on American soil again after her trip, was the day the bar for treason was set so high it is irrelevant.

I still cannot believe it.

This bunch flourished under that 'new tone' set when the previous administration tried 'to get along'. Contrast how the 'state' media treated the loon that set up camp in Crawford as opposed to how they ridicule Sarah... Still even after liberals have pulled the plug on the US economy the majority of my relatives and friends still believe that Bush is the devil.
