When in Danger, CodePink’s Leader calls for the US Marines

Oh, the irony!!!!!! She wants the Marines gone, but when she’s in danger she calls for them. I hope they didn’t help her.

When in danger, call for the US Marines.

That’s what CodePink’s Medea Benjamin did

Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin, who can turn the air blue when shouting chants against American Marines called out for the Marines in front of Marine Recruiting offices in Berkeley yesterday.

Eamon Kelley, the young Marine who is featured in Move America Forward’s TV commercial that ran on Fox News earlier this week, could hardly believe his own ears when Benjamin called on the Marines for help.

Kelley, who is recovering from back surgery, spent his day in Berkeley, where CodePink continues with Berkeley council’s blessing, to keep a virtual blockade at the recruit center, expanding its efforts to harass American troops and to turn back any young Americans looking to enlist.

City Council stubbornly refuses to apologize and continues to subsidize free parking for CodePink to drive soldiers out of town.

“While we were at the protest in Berkeley from 12 to 4 p.m., a white Volvo drove by and a man spat upon CodePink,” Kelley wrote in an email to MAF’s Melanie Morgan. “They chased him down the street and got into a verbal altercation. The police were NOWHERE in sight.

“That’s not the best part, ready for this?

“Medea Benjamin yelled and I quote “Marines!” She actually yelled for our help because this man had stepped out of his car. I even asked her if she was yelling Police and she told me, “I said Marines” then put her arm around my friend Allen (the Marine Vet). Ironic?”

Benjamin, who turned on her former close friend, San Francisco Bay Area activist Maria Ruzicka, later killed in Iraq in a widely-publicized suicide bombing, over Ruzicka’s decision to work with the U.S. military to secure compensation for the peoples of Iraq and Afghanistan, is on the record for supporting Cuba and Venezuela.

“Benjamin has drawn conservative criticism for her support of Hugo Chavez and her attacks on the U.S. embargo of Fidel Castro’s Cuba. Conservative writer David Horowitz’s FrontPageMag has attacked her as “a long-time Castro acolyte.” “(Wikipedia, the free encylopedia).

“Many of the causes that Ms. Benjamin espouses are Communist in nature. The Washington “peace” rally at which she spoke last month, for instance, was organized by the Workers World Party, a Communist organization…In years past, she staunchly opposed US military and to those fighting against Communist forces in Central America…She favors the creation of a government-sponsored universal health care system funded by taxpayer dollars. She exhorts the US government to lift its trade embargo against Cuba-a nation she notably lauds as a place where people have managed to “thrive despite the odds against them.”

If communism is so great why doesn’t she take her butt to Cuba. As a matter of fact let’s round up all the Chavez, Che Guevara and Castro lovers and drop them off. Then they’ll really know what Free Speech and Universal Health Care is all about.

Amen to that, Leidy!!!

All of those who assume that this is a hoax I can assure you it is not. I witnessed the entire event as well as several others. One of Medea’s henchmen called for the police however, they were no where in sight. THIS my friends is why she yelled Marines. It may have been sarcasm, but none the less she said it.

Marines 1/Medea 0

Eamon, you are a hero and we thank you for your service to this country! I am sorry that there are horrible people out there like CodePink, and I hope you know there are more of us who appreciate you and support you and who will defend you. Thanks for your heroism!!
