Skip to comments.Code Pink: Obama, Hamas, Muslim Brotherhood Ally Raising (Tax Exempt) Money to Overthrow Egypt Gov't
Posted on 02/04/2011 10:12:13 AM PST by kristinn
Obama fundraiser group Code Pink issued an emergency appeal on Thursday for thousands of dollars to help the group overthrow the Egyptian government of Hosni Mubarak.
Code Pink, which has a history of working with enemies of the Egyptian government Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, said in the appeal it wanted to raise $5,000 to fund "the next big uprising" against the Egyptian government on Friday.
As we reported previously, Code Pink has been on the ground in Cairo since the beginning of the uprising. The group has made nine trips to Egypt in the past two years as part of a campaign to undermine the Egyptian government and the blockade against Hamas-controlled Gaza.
The headline for the appeal published at the Web site of Code Pink's fundraising partner Democracy in Action reads:
"Help us raise $5,000 in emergency funds today to support the Egyptian revolution!"
Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin posted on Twitter from Egypt at 3:19 a.m. Cairo time on Friday that more than $10,000 had already been raised.
In the appeal, Code Pink urges supporters to send cute little puppies and kittens to the demonstrators. Not really. They actually urge Code Pink's dupes to "Send flowers and supplies to the demonstrators!"
Yes, Code Pink wants to replicate the famous 1967 photo of a propaganda stunt where a protester against the Vietnam war placed flowers in the barrels of rifles held by soldiers at the Pentagon:
"The next major demonstration in Egypt has been called for this Friday after prayers. People are desperate for it to be a peaceful mobilization. The demonstrators have a plan to deliver hundreds of flowers to demonstrators, wounded protesters, and to the gun barrels of the Army's tanks during the next big uprising on Friday after prayers."
Of course Code Pink has more in mind than just a propaganda stunt. The group also claims that donations over the five dollar for flowers will "buy blankets, food and medicines for the protesters in the streets." Sure.
Code Pink claims it is a 501-C3 tax exempt organization and posts the tax ID number 95-4658841 on the fundraising appeal. Code Pink says on the appeal, "Any donation you make over the $5 is a tax-deductible contribution to CODEPINK."
That's right. Who knew funding the overthrow of U.S. allies was a tax exempt charitable act?
One has to wonder, how will Code Pink account to the IRS for the expenditures--not that the Obama administration will investigate a group co-founded by Jodie Evans who is one of President Barack Obama's top presidential fundraisers.
Being that 501-C3 organizations are prohibited from raising or spending money for candidates or partisan political activity, how can it be lawful to raise and spend tax exempt funds to overthrow a government? Again, Code Pink states upfront the money is to "support the Egyptian revolution!"
There is no guarantee that Code Pink will spend the money solely on "flowers...blankets, food and medicines for the protesters in the streets." As the group says at the end of the appeal, "Our CODEPINK team is on the ground in Cairo doing everything we can to support the movement." Will the 'CODEPINK team' dip into the donations to cover their expenses? Will they be buying hash, cigarettes and liquor in the Cairo streets or hookah bars? Will some of that money be used by protesters to buy Molotov cocktail supplies or worse?
Code Pink has a history of working with and giving humanitarian aid to terrorist groups like Hamas. It passes itself off as non-violent but supports those who engage in violence against America and her allies--especially Israel. Code Pink knows that humanitarian aid relieves pressure on groups to provide the basics to combatants and their families so that the tools of revolution can be bought and morale maintained.
Sure, Code Pink says the money is for flowers, blankets, food and medicine. But who will get the aid? We already know what they will do with the aid--work to overthrow America's Egyptian ally and staunch defender against Code Pink's partners Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.
I want to remind folks that we here at Free Republic have long reported on the alliance between Western communists and Islamic terrorism. Here's a link to the D.C. Chapter's Flag Guide to Terrorists and Marxist flags and banners displayed at so-called antiwar rallies post-9/11 in 2001/2002. Link here.
Article III, Section 3, Paragraph 1, of the Constitution of the United States:
"Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them,
or, in adhering to their Enemies, giving them aid and comfort."
The "aid and comfort" prong of treason has been interpreted
by SCOTUS as requiring proof of four elements:
1. an intent to betray the United States (which can be inferred from);
2. an overt act;
3. witnessed by two people; and
4. that provides aid and comfort to an enemy of the United States.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious.
But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly.
But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.
For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men.
He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist.
A murderer is less to be feared."
-- Marcus Tullius Cicero
Thanks, Kristinn—although it’s heartbreaking to hear that these American women, who were born and raised in the freest country that has ever been, turned out this way.
Of course, with the present regime in power, we are all losers these days.
Thanks for posting. Obviously Code Pinko is directly aiding Islamic Extremist and Islamic Terrorist groups.
Their “peace movement” is a lie...they are outright supporting our enemies
Good work. The more this information is disbursed the better.
Thanks, sorry to post and run. But duty calls elsewhere now, so to speak.
You are the shining jewel of FR, kristinn. Thanks for all you do.
I hope Code Pink turns into a Code Blue.
This is awesome, kristinn...thanks.
I didn’t know that code pink were this crazy. If this is true these losers should be sent to Egypt to protest themselves so they can realize how truly blessed they are to live in the U.S.
Right now the 0bama regime supports this overthrow...therefore codepink is doing their patriotic duty...
I truly wish I could put a sarcasm tag on that statement, but it is what it is.
Makes a person wonder about that little vacation the obamas had in Spain...and the guests.
A get together for plans to overthrow Egypt?
And with enemies of the American and Israeli peoples. The Code Pinkos work with the enemies of civilization, essentially.
Thank you for posting this and for the work you do in raising the curtain on Code Pink!
It would seem the word “Treason” anymore is as volatile as bean bags on the border. There’s been so damned much “Treason” with this crowd ruling the Democrat Party, and pushing their insanity onto the rest of us, and the World, yet NOTHING is done beyond screaming the word “Treason”, but only by those of us on the outside.
Why aren’t there calls of “Treason” from within the elected representation of our government? Those that we elect. Why aren’t they too looking at “Treason”? Haven’t heard, or read a peep out of them about “Treason”.
Here is what is beyond words sickening
This was widely reported
Hamas ‘happy’ with Obama’s $900 million
Obama Gives Palestine $400M More Aid
DOES ANY ONE FIND IT ODD that the protesters in Egypt have ENGLISH protest signs?
Saying TREASON with the annointed ones name is like saying war on terror.
For the love of God and anything good WHY is the POTUS aiding and abetting terrorists and giving them miranda rights and the media covers for him?
But why are they're protest signs in English? If they are well versed in a few languages GREAT I get it media but if I go to make a protest sign it will be in my home language.
