Code Pink Continues to Stink

With thanks to The Autonomist.

You may remember Code Pink as the moonbat cult that raised $600,000 for the terrorists who were killing their fellow Americans in Fallujah.

The Battle of Fallujah is over, but Code Pink's struggle to undermine our country continues. The latest front in their war against America is a "counter-recruitment" campaign that calls for sabotage and disruption directed at military recruiting offices.

According to Code Pink:

Holding an action outside a recruitment center can have a huge effect on potential enlistees, recruiters, and passersby. It is a highly effective method of community education and empowerment, and has been shown to drive recruiters out of areas, from a block to a city.

Helpful tips are offered to those who would like to undermine their own military in time of war:

  • Pass out anti-US propaganda leaflets.
  • Make an appointment with a recruiter as a way of ensuring that the office will be open when the "action" is to take place.
  • Hold a "die in" — i.e., lie on the sidewalk and refuse to move so that police have to come and drag you away at taxpayers' expense.
  • Stage a "mourning march," which should include pink crosses, tombstones, and a prop coffin.
  • Form a "resistance line" in front of the doorway so that no one can get into the recruiting office.
  • Really get under people's skin by singing moronic songs.

If you are wondering what kind of person would encourage this behavior, has some interesting information on Code Pink founder Medea Benjamin, a hard-left mental case considered to be a chief organizing force behind the 1999 Seattle riots that caused millions of dollars worth of senseless destruction. A little background reading on Benjamin and her merry band of maniacs quickly makes it clear that Code Pink and the anti-war movement in general are not so much opposed to war as to America, and to the freedom America represents.

Fer Christ's sake, isn't there some Patriot Act nugget or other law that could squelch these domestic terrorists?

BTW, VH, I LOVE YOUR NEW LOOK! Verrrry cool! :)

I guess if you're successful in raising $600K you don't have to worry about getting a real job and working. Looks like she studied at tha Jesse Jackson/Al Sharpton School of Political Activism. It's just amazing what a free society like ours tolerates. What an asshole!

You have to wonder why Code Pink would even bother protesting outside a recruiting office.

I mean, President Bush has already driven down recruitments by 42% last month in the Army alone!

Pink crosses? I thought these communist types were anti-religion. How can we take them seriously when they deviate so far from their core beliefs? Sheesh. And they call themselves hippies. We have a code pink at my house. It means I don't

I love all you folks who would rather shit all over the Constitution and the forefathers and mothers than tolerate anyone who refuses to goosestep along with the rest of the theocratic-fascists.
Learn a little history, fellas, the USA was created by a bunch of Liberal Protestors who had had enough!

Er, 'Scuse me "malfouka," what I said was, "It's just amazing what a free society like ours tolerates." Your "liberal protesters" can continue to make fools of themselves with these assclown antics, but I reserve my 1st Amendment right to mock.

Have you ever read or saw something that frustrated you so bad you weren't sure how to react? I'm having one of those moments now.

"malfouka," here's some history: the Founding Fathers weren't liberal in the sense that word is used today. They were what is now known as "classical liberal" — pro-freedom, anti-tyranny — in other words, the exact opposite of what "liberal" has come to mean.

First off, great post! I love it when the left proves themselves to engage in what Emmett Tyrell has called a "riot of conceits."

Secondly, I gagged when "malfeasance" talked about "liberal" founding fathers. It depends what you mean.

The people who fought for and won our independence were, as Van points out, classic liberals.

However, a dozen years later at the Constitutional Convention, most of those folks had faded into the background with a few notable exceptions. Arising to take their place were a new generation, the two most important; Hamilton and Madison. Jefferson, Madison's ideological godfather, was in Paris and played no part in the deliberations.

The point is, our true "Founding Fathers" were imbued with what historian Page Smith calls a "Classical Christian Consciousness." Their belief that mankind was basically evil (original sin) and that governments should have numerous checks and balances in order to protect the citizenry barely won out over politicians like Jefferson, Madison, et. al. who were influenced by the European enlightenment. Their belief was predicated on the assumption that mankind was basically GOOD and that governments were formed to promote the goodness inherent in all men.

It's easy to see who won out. Jefferson et al opposed an executive AND a federal judiciary. They even opposed giving the Senate anything but ceremonial powers. You can see where that kind of "liberalism" would have led...utter and complete chaos.

In the end, the Classical Christian Consciousness won the day. Andt thank God for that!

I think it's hilarious when they start spouting off about about the theocrats and calling us fascists. Which is inevitably followed up with the comparison of the founding fathers to the revolutionary communist fringe groups like code pink. The religious, pro-gun, anti-tax founding fathers.

It's a stretch at best malfouka. You guys can never site any examples of an impending theocracy and your knowledge of "history" is way off. We love you too're the type that keeps the liberal losing streak going. Keep up the good work.

What's malfouka's problem? That Van's talking about this and exposing it for what it really is, or what? hehehe.
