Obama, Code Pink and Egypt: 'There Are No Coincidences in Politics' (as seen on Glenn Beck)
Big Peace ^ | Thursday, February 3, 2011 | Kristinn Taylor and Andrea Shea King

Posted on 02/03/2011 3:42:54 PM PST by kristinn

As the cliche goes, there are no coincidences in politics. Obama fundraiser group Code Pink just happened to have arrived in Cairo last week for the group’s ninth visit there in two years as part of its campaign to undermine the Mubarak government and help Hamas, the terrorist group that controls Gaza.

Code Pink and the media are trying to portray the leftist group's 'sudden' appearance in Cairo Wednesday as an act of courageous support for a democratic revolution. Nothing could be further from the truth.


Code Pink protests the Mubarak government in Tahrir Square, Cairo, Egypt. February 2, 2011.

Code Pink has a well-documented history of working to overthrow American allies while propping up anti-American leftist governments and terrorist regimes.

In fact, the group was founded in late 2002 to help keep the socialist Iraqi government of Saddam Hussein in power. Code Pink even traveled to Baghdad in February 2003 as guests of the tyrannical terrorist to lobby the world to keep Saddam Hussein in power.

Since then, Code Pink has worked to support the communist dictatorship of the Castro brothers in Cuba, the terrorist regime of Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the government of Fidel Castro wannabe Hugo Chavez of Venezuela. The group has visited each of these nations as guests of their respective governments.

Code Pink has also met with various terrorist groups including Hamas, the Taliban and Iraqi "insurgents." Code Pink has even acted as a messenger between terrorists and President Barack Obama.

Last year Code Pink invited the Egypt-based Muslim Brotherhood to "Join us in cleansing our country."

In January 2007 Code Pink traveled to Cuba to wage a propaganda campaign, aided by the Cuban government, that called for the closure of the United States terrorist detention facility at Guantanamo. The Ladies in White, a persecuted human rights group comprised of wives and mothers of Cuban democracy activists held in the Castros' gulags, wrote an open letter beseeching Cindy Sheehan, who accompanied Code Pink to Cuba, to inspect Cuba's prisons for human rights violations.

Code Pink interceded on Sheehan's behalf and blew off las Damas de Blanco.

The year before, in January 2006, Code Pink met with Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. Obama fundraiser Jodie Evans described Chavez as "a doll."

In the summer of 2009, Code Pink made no effort to travel to Tehran to support Iranian democracy activists protesting the stolen election that reelected Ahmadinejad president. How could they when just months earlier Code Pink had visited Tehran and Qom as personal guests of Ahmadinejad?

In contrast, that same summer when the Hugo Chavez ally President Manuel Zelaya of Honduras was forced from office after the nation's Supreme Court ruled he had violated the constitution by trying to stay in power past his term, Code Pink went to his aid in Honduras.

In the summer of 2008 when Russia waged war on Georgia, Code Pink snottily taunted critics who challenged the so-called antiwar group to protest the invasion with the snarky post, "Yes, we'll get right on that" to explain their inaction to defend the American ally.

In December 2007 when American ally President Pervez Musharraf of Pakistan was under pressure to leave office, Code Pink traveled to Pakistan to help America's enemies increase the pressure on Musharraf. The Pakistanis rightly tossed the interlopers out of the country.

Since 2009 Code Pink has been leading an international campaign to get a blockade lifted that was imposed by Egypt and Israel after Hamas was elected to rule Gaza.

One year ago, Code Pink was in Cairo with former Weather Underground terrorists Bill Ayers and his wife Bernardine Dohrn agitating against the Mubarak government and its decision to limit the amount of aid and activists it would allow in Gaza.

Code Pink protested in the very same Tahrir Square that has become famous the past two weeks.

Code Pink brags on its Web site that its protests in Cairo helped inspire Egyptians to rise up against Mubarak.

When CODEPINK was in Cairo for the Gaza Freedom March last year, we led and participated in small, peaceful protests that were set upon by hundreds of riot police at the behest of repressive Mubarak regime.

But now there has been a seismic shift. There are not 50 people rallying in Cairo, but hundreds of thousands protesting across the nation. Dozens have been killed; hundreds have been wounded.

But the Egyptian people will not be turned back. They feel their power and are determined to seize the moment.

For those who question Code Pink's involvement in the protests to overthrow Mubarak, this report from Cairo should put that to rest.

Later Sunday afternoon one amazing event after another continues to unfold. When we left the hotel early in the afternoon, we met a human rights activist/reporter that Medea knew who invited us to come to the Egyptian Center for Economic and Social Justice, which he said was at the center of the organization of the protests. (This Center was the organizer of the April 9th Movement protests in 2008). We went into an unprepossessing building in a narrow street, climbed up about six flights of stairs and came into a room that was filled with young organizers/activists. We met with Nada Saddek, a middle aged woman who is a key person at the center...

Code Pink does not care about Egyptian democracy. Code Pink's goal is to overthrow an American ally that has helped keep the peace with Israel and been a bulwark against Islamist radicals.

What is interesting is that despite the apparent opposition in positions on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Code Pink and President Barack Obama are amazingly in sync. Obama wants Mubarak to go. So does Code Pink. Obama wanted Zelaya to stay in power. So did Code Pink. Obama hobnobs with Hugo Chavez, so does Code Pink. Obama wants to close Guantamo and is easing travel restrictions on Cuba, which mirrors Code Pink's positions. Obama is waging war on Big Oil, so is Code Pink. Obama opposed liberating Iraq, so did Code Pink. Obama wants our troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan soon regardless of the effect, so does Code Pink.

It's no wonder that one of Obama's early supporters and key fundraisers was Code Pink co-founder Jodie Evans.

This week Glenn Beck has been exposing the relationship between Code Pink, Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood and the attempted overthrow of Mubarak in Egypt. Much of his reporting is based on articles written by Freepers Andrea Shea King and myself at Big Government, Big Peace and Free Republic.

This is our latest article in a growing series of exposes.

knew it and have said it
the far left are there with the MB and that explains why our left wing biased corrupt media are being so biased intheir coverage.

Also now this begs the question why did obama go to Cairo for his speech, why there and not eleswhere like saudi?

Who did he or his cronies meet and talk to over there?

There is no way this is a coincidence that he goes there , Ayers on the flotilla and now code pink while our corrupt media give their own views instead of facts.

This also explains why obama was quick to get rid of an ally who has kept peace with Israel for decades and why now Soros has come out blaming the Jews.

I wish the American Jews would wake up to what obama is doing

I personally think Clown Pink is a bit of a distraction but they are a very visible example of the left aligning themselves with terrorists.

Go to any far left site and look what they’re saying. What they see in Egypt is exactly what they want here. The CPUSA (communist party USA) is hoping the muslim brotherhood will close the suez canal and force communist change in America and around the world.

Tonight Glenn suggested looking at the Hamas Covenant. Its basically a muslim constitution that is followed by radical muslims everywhere.

How can this be true and nothing be done by our government. There has got to be someone within the Government that sees this? I cannot believe what I am hearing. If this is true...we need to stock some food, get candles, grab some silver or gold and get ready...if I see the President gathering his Civilian Force....pray...because we will need it.

Maybe that’s why the protesters in Yemen were wearing pink a couple of days ago. Thought that was a strange color to see angry protesters wearing.

There are forces way above the Muslim Brotherhood behind this. Trust me on that. Way above Mubarak. Way above Bin Ladin. On a worldwide level that is hard for regular people to comprehend. This is the start of creating the “Arab” region. One of 7. Later they will become one. “Out of chaos comes order”. Remember that. Israel does not fit in to the big picture.

Islamic Socialism. What’s not to love if you’re a leftist?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_socialism

>>Islamic socialism is a term coined by various Muslim leaders to meet the demand for a more spiritual form of socialism. Muslim socialists believe that the teachings of the Qur’an and Muhammad are compatible with principles of equality and the redistribution of wealth. But some orthodox Islamic scholars declare various socialist practices, such as the confiscation of private property, to be oppressive and against Islamic teachings<<
