Rhymes With Stink

Well, Code Pink is at it again. The far-leftist whackjobs (but I repeat myself) encountered a woman whose son was killed in Afghanistan. And their words of comfort to this Gold Star Mother? "Your son deserved to die in Iraq if he was stupid enough to go over there."

Plenty of other people have spent plenty of energy denouncing these scum, these spiritual kin to the Westboro Baptist/Phelps family vermin. I don't particularly feel the need to add on.

Instead, I want to take a stroll through Code Pink's history, touching on select incidents.

January 2005: Several Code Pink protesters, with passes provided them by Democratic members of Congress, disrupt President Bush's State of the Union Address.

January 2006: Cindy Sheehan, who had joined forces with Code Pink, is given a pass to President Bush's State Of The Union address by Representative Lynn Woolsey (D-CA). Sheehan is removed when she unfurls an anti-Bush banner, shouting, and otherwise disrupting the event. (Woolsey is also believed to have supplied passes the previous year as well.)

September 2007: Code Pink protesters interrupt and disrupt Congressional hearings on confirming General Petraeus as the new commander in Iraq.

October, 2007: Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is on Capitol Hill to testify before Congress about the status of the Israel-Palestine conflict. She is assaulted by a Code Pink activist, who had been allowed into the hearing room by the Democrats who controlled Congress.

December 2009: Code Pink delivers two-thirds of a billion million dollars in cash and other aid to the terrorists of Fallujah, carrying letters of support from Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA), Congressman Henry Waxman (D-CA), and others.

October 2009: President Obama literally embraces Code Pink co-founder Jodie Evans.

That Code Pink is a despicable, loathsome, group is not really up for debate. What should be discussed is how they have been empowered, enabled, assisted, and embraced by the Democratic Party on numerous occasions.

Don't bother asking Code Pink to stop being attention whores and scumbags. Instead, ask Democrats why they keep helping them.

(Typo fixed. Million, not billion.)

Easy, because they are also attention whores and scumbags.

Why, certainly it's because the Democrats universally support free speech, as guaranteed in the Bill of Rights. Just think of how supportive Democrats have been of the concept that all interested parties should have a voice in the Ground Zero Mosque issue.

Oh...thx for clearing that up.

There are X dollars to go around in Fallujah, and any other terrorist haven. Any time money or other supplies are given to such a terrorist haven (as it was at the time) the FIRST people served are the terrorists. FACT.

Code Pink is an enemy of our military and of this country. Period.

I was at the Berkeley 2008 event, standing with my fellow former Marines...and listening to the insane rantings of Code Pink. Make no mistake...they ARE insane.

Bruce must be right. A terrorist organization would not ever take humanitarian aide for their use. Would they? No way. When the terrorists attack, they do so from schools and mosques so they can "be protected". Come on Bruce. I am actually surprised you would set yourself up to look like a naive idiot. ww

Bruce is merely pointing out that JT took a few short-cuts in his explanation that are sure to be missed by those not attentive or cognizant of the details of the various alluded to histories.

I think, however, to be consistent, he should be writing to Nancy Pelosi to ask she start an investigation into the funding of this group.

"Don't bother asking Code Pink to stop being attention whores and scumbags. Instead, ask Democrats why they keep helping them."

For longer than most can remember, the Democratic party has given almost free reign to the anti-war groups, including the extreme fringe (for most of us) of Code Pink.

They have also embraced the "free spirits" of the arts community - actors, directors, writers, etc.

This probably will not change. I look back to the adoration shown to Jane Fonda with the same groups of adoring dems that we see with the Code Pink protesters. (I would imagine they secretly adore the Westboro Baptist group, too, but can't admit it because those people claim to be Christian).

The general coarsening of our culture has been driven and perpetuated by the likes of Roman Polansky, Phil Spectre and Rosie O'Donnell. These drug abusing musicians, self-adoring actors, "enlightened" artists - all those who think the world, the rules or even the consequences will never touch them are mainstream in the democratic party.

These people, driven by feelings, cannot logically look at a problem. They cannot see the need for a stiff backbone and rules.

Thank goodness people are finally starting to pay attention.

You mean tax paying patriots like John Kerry? Timmy Geitner? Charlie Rangel? And the biggest of all "We've ALL got to make sacrifices" Obama?

Can't seem to recall the last time I took Momma on a 'date night' via airplane. Or she took off on vacation to Spain. And I don't recall taking the family to Martha's Vineyard.

Guess some are MORE EQUAL than others.

Don't forget code pinko is xenophobic.

The secret service had to intervene.

Whole article, Dane? Hardly. You're questioning the latest accusation of scumbaggery by Code Pink, the one that triggered my writing this article. You haven't bothered challenging the whole sordid Code Pink history.

And here's an irony -- had I not seen this incident, I probably would have written the article Sunday anyway. I just would have hung it off the counterprotest.

Upset Old Guy:

Dane, if you were referring to my comment at #25, I admit it was changing the topic a bit. I wanted to highlight the hypocrisy of of a troll who can't see any reason to accept the word of a Gold Star mom but willingly accepts the words of a democrat whose ugly racial charge is completely unsupported.

Besides, you're an attention-whore, I thought you'd like it.

If I were on a jury trying some person for knocking the hell out of a flag burner, spit on the troops asshat, someone calling out baby killer, or any of these low life, scum bags we seem to have so many of MY VOTE WOULD BE NOT GUILTY! I don't care if he did it on national TV. Remember that and tell your friends - what judges don't tell juries before deliberation is that if you feel the law is wrong, it is you DUTY to vote your conscience.

Oh, and dane, swallow this.
