However, I would like to take this opportunity to openly question the patriotism of the Berkeley City Council and members of the terrorist front group and facilitators Code Pink, and any of their supporters.
I offer the following evidence in support of my accusation that they are unpatriotic scum;
- The Berkeley city council voted to regulate the USMC recruiting office as it regulates adult businesses, circumscribing its operations.
- It also called the Marines “unwelcome intruders,” called for them to leave town.
- It gave Code Pink a special parking place directly in front of their office to facilitate its protests against the Marines.
- Mayor Tom Bates, who says that the City Council didn't mean to offend the Marines (oh please!!!) has joined Code Pink in their pickets in front of the Marine Recruiting Center
- Code Pink has helped fund terrorist families in Iraq with a $600,000 gift.
Well those things, and all the other 8,239 things that they have said, inferred, or been quoted and attributed to.
Cat Moy from Move America Forward had this to report earlier today.
Berkeley Police Watch “Peace” Freaks attack Patriots
Berkeley erupted in violence Tuesday morning when the Communist, terrorist-supporting anti-war group crossed into Martin Luther King Park and assaulted pro-troop individuals. Riot police stood by, but did not stop the assaults. Police agencies did not respond to calls for help.
Move America Forward, the nation’s largest pro-troop organization, received permits from the City of Berkeley to hold a day long demonstration in MLK park against the City Council who passed three outrageous resolutions calling U.S. Marines “unwanted intruders.”
“It is mayhem on here,” MAF communications director Danny Gonzalez said from the park early Tuesday morning.
Code Pink was permitted for across the street. The two sides were to stay separated, according to rules laid down by the city. But the city has a history of giving Code Pink special preference. The City Council gave free parking permits and a free noise permit to the radical group, which has helped fund terrorist families in Iraq with a $600,000 gift. MAF Executive Director Catherine Moy attempted to get help from the Berkeley police as the mayhem unfolded, but an officer hung up on Moy. Moy asked the California Highway Patrol to help in the emergency, but the CHP refused. “I have never in my life experienced such inaction in the face of an emergency, “Moy said. “I will ask the Federal Government to investigate, as well as the State Attorney General. It is one thing to give free parking places to the City Council’s special interest anti-war groups, it is another to take sides and endanger the lives of others.”
Move America Forward and other pro-troop organizations will stand in support of the Marines all day Tuesday until they can enter the City Council chambers to address the City Council.
But wait! There's more...
Let me also take this opportunity to openly question the patriotism of Harry Reid, who is possibly the most ineffective Majority Leader in our entire history. He has decided to take time out from his usual organizing the 2,406th unsuccessful vote to unconditionally bend over and grab our ankles for AQI in the Battle against Islamofascist terrorism to block and obstruct the Semper Fi Act of 2008...
Instead of adjourning at the end of a day as usual, the Senate “recessed” twice, a move that, under Senate rules, slows the process of adding new bills to the calendar. Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) did not adjourn until last Friday, effectively pushing back floor consideration on the GOP bill until Tuesday — the same day that the city council is likely to tone down its call for Marine Corps recruiters to leave town.
Senator Demint's office was quick to react...
“The only reason to recess is to block something, and the thing that got blocked by Reid’s stall tactic was the Semper Fi Act,” said spokesman Wesley Denton, referring to the bill introduced by his boss, Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.).
“Democrats have chosen not to defend the Marine Corps, but to pander to anti-war protesters and Berkeley officials that are actively trying to impede military recruitment.”
Senator Reid's office was quick to fire back...
“Democrats are working to provide the intelligence professionals with the tools they need to protect the nation from terrorism, while Republicans have done everything in their power to block the Senate from finishing the debate over the warrantless wiretapping program,” Manley said. “And all that Sen. DeMint can do is complain that we recessed instead of adjourned last week? We should be the ones complaining.”
The California Democrats who sponsored the earmarks, Sen. Barbara Boxer and Rep. Barbara Lee, say they will fight for the funding, which includes a lunch program at a Berkeley school district, ferry service and a new endowment at the University of California-Berkeley.
OK, I am going to breeze right by their specious, traitorous actions in regards to FISA and surveillance, as that is for another day. As usual, the libtard cabal that is what passes for the Democrat party is once again, choosing the side of those that embolden our enemies, and encourage them to fight on.
The Code Pink act is getting old, in fact, about 40 years too old. The fact that the cops would allow this to continue like this and not really get involved bugs me to no end. They should just fire them all and hand out the money to all the worn out, tired old hippies living there. I know it may be rhetorical, but what is the point of having laws about blocking the sidewalk and committing assault, and disorderly conduct (which is what Code Pink is doing by standing in the way of people who are lawfully conducting business and then touching them unlawfully by preventing them from passing) if the police, the people that are supposed to enforce these laws, stand by and let them break the law?
Please feel free to let the bad actors (and the good ones too) in this morality play that is unfolding in Berserkeley know how you feel in a responsible, logical, firm and direct way.
I don't care about the kids and their gourmet lunches and the ferry service and the grant to the UC Berkeley. Maybe the council should have thought about those very things before they starting flapping their pie-holes and inciting a riot.
But I have thought about it, and I am going to lean forward and fight on this one...
