Come on Code Pink, you didn't get a lot of press mileage from your big Pakistan story and your lies about being abused and mistreated. You are due for an arrest soon. How about Sally, is she going to step up to the plate and show her commitment to the cause by making herself out to be a fool in public?

There is so much good you could be doing with your time other than wasting it on this group.

It would have been a nicer photo if they came up with some stupid stunt to get arrested. Keep feeding the criminal justice system kids, we love it! It would be a great goal to have all of you whack jobs have criminal records. So, show your support for the cause and engage in some civil disobedience.

Code Pink LIES. Two of them posed as media to gain entry to a hearing at Congress. What a bunch of phony ass holes with all their lies and staged outrage and phony events designed for their petty propaganda. I hope these useful idiot Hugo Chavez supporters got arrested.

It would be awesome if that Tighe Barry got arrested again. The judge will love sentencing him for a crime committed while he has a case pending already. This is going to be great. He could of course plead insanity in the hopes that his mental illness will exonerate him.

The "Who's streets" is a riff on the Weathermen's "The Streets Belong To The People" rant.

Scary that both the Weathermen and Code Pink have rowhouses. The Weathermen's plot to kill soldiers was cut short when their bombs prematurely detonated. And here's Code Pink honoring bomber Cathy Wilkerson.

The parallels are disturbing. Both groups are frustrated by their lack of progress, both have delusions that the majority of Americans share their views.

The Weathermen acted out by going underground and going violent with a bombing campain against America.

Will Code Pink become the next American terror cult?

One has to wonder where coles got to fire a German machine gun, was it a Red Army Faction retreat in Barvaria?

Sge's always posturing viloent with her revolutionary macho on.

Medea Manipulator admitted to the Washington Times editorial board that the Code Pink "Family" has been ineffective and that they are frustrated. Too bad a lot of people have been wasting their time on this group and getting criminal records in the process. Actually, that is a good thing.

Anonymous said...

It's no surprise to me that she admitted to being ineffective. I joined one of the chapters, but stopped being active when I realized that:

(1) They totally demean and demonize the people they disagree with. That is the main reason why I stopped being active with Code Pink. As much as I disagree with Pres. Bush, I can't say that he intentionally lied or that he is a bad man. He is simply a man who has a lot on his plate and has to make tough choices. Some of which I disagree with. I have no doubt that he wants to protect the country. Like anyone else, he should be open to some criticism, but at least acknowledge he has done a lot of good. We have not been attacked here since 2001 and he has also done more for Darfur than any other leader in the world.

(2) That the organization's leadership is hypocritical in embracing dictators like Hugo Chavez while criticizing politicians here at home. They heap criticism on America all the time, but you never see them protesting China's support of the genocide in Darfur because it does not fit in with their anti-American agenda.

(3) That the organization will align itself with any radical individual or any extremist group that is opposed to the administration and the war even though its members may not share the same values with such radicals A good example is all the anti-Israel leaflets and pamphlets available at protests. Even Cindy Sheehan claimed our military men were dying for Israel. I have seen many anti-Israel slogans on placards at protests. Additionally, I have seen many images of Che Guevara who was anti-democratic and killed a lot of people by his own hands.

(4) That the organization promotes anti-Americanism and is not patriotic.

(5) That the organization promotes a sisterhood, but in fact simply uses its own people. There is nothing wrong with calling on people to be active, but not discouraging them from getting arrested and generally making fools out of themselves is not good for individual members or the group as a whole.

(6) I am now convinced that eventually Code Pink members will resort to violence because it really is a hateful group and it only respects those they agree with.

They hypocrisy in Code Pink should be enough for any reasonable minded person to wonder if affiliating oneself with this organization is wise. I have concluded that it is not and that is why I left Code Pink. I would not encourage my daughter to get involved with Code Pink. There are more positive groups that are actually doing good for individuals that are out there. There are ways to oppose the war and still be patriotic and not have to make a fool out of ones self or get arrested.

It took me six months to realize all of this. Some Code Pinkers may never realize it until many years later when they are participating in a documentary on the history channel and the interviewer is asking them why they made no difference. Some may realize it sooner. Others may criticize me for what I say, but it is what worked for me.

Eileen Coles said...

What a load of cointelpro crap. We must scare the crap out of you freepers for you to put all this effort into trying to discredit the organization.

"Medea turned me into a NEWT!... I got better..."

Eileen Coles said...

Pigwater, your cluelessness would be funny if it wasn't so pathetic. Yeah right, like someone's going to give the Red Army Faction access to a Sturmfeuer. You are truly a cretin.

Eileen Coles said...

Global Exchange has a legitimate journalism arm and several members are journalists. Deal with it.

Eileen Coles said...

Hey Pigwater, can I get a job killing the assholes that REALLY threaten my country's freedom? Pretty please? I know EXACTLY who I'd start with, you pathetic Darwin award.

Then I could free up SO many JOB slots - all those fucktards who think warrantless wiretapping is something I should pay taxes for, for example.

Eileen Coles said...

Speaking of dictators, that Medellin-cartel-connected guy running Columbia and Dubya seem to be pretty good friends these days. Next time any of these dumbasses whines about Chavez, make sure you let them know we know about King Georgies' cuddling up to that scumbag Alvaro Uribe! Sure you can be a dictator in George Bush's world, so long as you're GEORGE BUSH'S dictator, helping him run his own oil, drug, and terrorism rackets!

Eileen, there you go lying again saying that Code Pink has a legitimate journalism wing. Why then did they LIE and represent themselves as being with Dateline NBC. They lied because Code Pink is a dishonest organization that tries to fool the public and certainly fools its own members like you.

Eileen Coles said...

Hey anonymous coward, there you go, lying again and pretending that CodePink said they were with Dateline NBC. Present your proof or shut up.

I don't have to present any proof. Anyone who is interested in Code Pink's lies can do a Google search.

If the info is incorrect Eileen then sue the legitimate journalist who wrote it or get them to print a retraction. You will not because you know Code Pink lied like they usually do. Medea Manipulator and her "Family" got caught in lies again.

Two Code Pink Protesters Pose as Media to Try to Get Senate Credentials

Wednesday, December 12, 2007

By Trish Turner

WASHINGTON — Anti-war demonstrators from Code Pink took a further step in their efforts to protest at the Capitol Tuesday, with two members of the group attempting to apply for media credentials with false information, FOX News has learned.

The two protesters, not dressed in the typical fuchsia used to identify group members at protests, entered the Senate Radio-TV Gallery with an application for credentials that indicated they were documentary workers for Dateline NBC.

Oh I know, your excuse will be that you can't believe Fox. Eileen, you have said it was a lie. You are a liar yourself. Go protest at Fox or file a suit and prove this article wrong. IT WILL NOT HAPPEN BECAUSE IT IS TOTALLY TRUE. YOU ASS HOLES ARE DESPERATE. IT'S JUST A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE ONE OF YOU LOONS KILLS SOMEONE.

The other news is shocking in that high level democrats approved of water boarding. We are going to see another budget that funds the war. The democrats are even worse than the republicans. Talk about dishonesty. They pander to us publicly, but privately they fuck us every time.

This is just another in a series of defeats that we have been experiencing for years now. Medea is right that we are frustrated.

Anonymous said...

Yes, I heard that. Actually, it was on the news tonight that some democrats in prior closed door hearings asked if water boarding was harsh enough. At least the R's are open and they don't lie about what they stand for. The D's tell us one thing and behind our backs stab us.

Eileen Coles said...

Oh you want me to believe FAUX NOISE? Do you have any money? Tell ya what, cluetard, I'll say I believe Faux Noise for about 5 minutes if you can immediately present me with $200,000 in small unmarked bills. I'll really do it for the whole five minutes, too. Promise!

Can't get it together? Oh well, then, there goes that idea. It would have made one hell of a nice Wednesday night potluck though.

Eileen Coles said...

Hey look what managed to leak into the news! Looks like one of the CIA jets that was used for torture rendition flights crashed in the Yucatan with FOUR TONS of Columbian nose candy on board. Tail numbers match existing documentation! Mmmmmm, tasty! Looks like the peaceful friendship between dictators Uribe and Bush is coming along very well!

Now tell us some more BS about Chavez, cluetards!

Laughing my fucking ass off... Nothing to dispute that legitimate news item about you idiots impersonating as Dateline NBC reporters. Code Pink lies. They will not be suing Fox news for that story because it is true true and true. More lies from Code Pink.

OH, that would just be TERRIBLE! Heavens to Mergatroid! KILLING people! The hand-wringing HORROR!

You fucktards kill all the time. You're the ones making a living at it. You're the ones who are gonna be in a world of hurt with your Christian God for breaking that commandment, not us. Your buddy J.C. just loves hypocrites like you. He's pre-heating the oven now.

Eileen Coles said...

Hey, disputing Faux Noise is like having an argument with a drug addict. They're going to believe in their hallucinations no matter what, and those hallucinations change constantly. Not here for you, Faux Noise. Bring a fact and a clue or two or get gone. "He said, she said" doesn't work in the real world, even if you do sit in the corner and repeat it over and over again like a schizo, as if that would somehow make it true.

Anonymous said...

Well, I know if I were lied about in the media, I would be demanding a correction. The reason why you are not making such a demand is because you can't. You can't because it happened and you would look stupid to dispute it. You can dispute it here all you want, but notice you will not be stupid enough to dispute it publicly.

Eileen, you are so fucking dumb it is no surprise Code Pink admits its ineffectiveness. If its members are like you it is going to get nowhere.

Eileen Coles said...

Anonymous, you are so fucking stupid that you can't even use your own name and you have nothing to bring with you but insults and GOP koolaid. Code Pink is kicking your pathetic asses by bringing the truth to light, and that's why you keep having to come back here to whine and lie.

anymouse, there parallels between Code Pik and the Weathermen are striking. Both are frustrated by their lack of progress.

It's a short trip from Code Pink hooring Cathy Wilkerson as a hero of the revolution to starting their own bombing campaign.

Please don't post when you're high on the drugs that the CIA is running into the country using your own tax dollars, anonymous cluetards. It really affects your spelling, and makes your hydrophobic rants even more unreadable than they usually are.

The CIA rocks!

Anonymous said...

The parallels between the 60s and now are very strong.

In the 60s, the SDS went from street fighting, got frustrated at their ineffectiveness and went underground as the Weathermen and started killing people.

Code Pink housed the SDS the weekend that they trashed Georgetown and hit that young lady in the forehead with a brick.

Georgetwon fits Medea's MO, afterall, she organized the trashing of Seattle in the name of peace and justice.

If I were the police, I'd be walking the bomb dogs down 5th St NE on a regular basis to protect the residents from what Code Pink might do next.

Eileen Coles said...

Well you're not the police. You're not the military. All you are is a cluetard with a big mouth and a taste for CIA provided drugs. If only you could be the Darwin award that you are and not take any other innocent people with you. Perhaps you should go to Iraq, anonymous cluetard. Nah, you'd never do that, actually fighting wars is for other people to do far, far away from where it would offend your delicate sensibilities.

Anonymous said...

Well, perhaps you should publicly light yourself on fire to protest the war and oppression like the Buddhist monks did in Vietnam. Or perhaps one of you should really consider dying during one of your staged phony hunger strikes.

ah, you'd never do that, actually dying for peace would offend your delicate sensibilities.

Uribe, Musharrif, bin Laden, Hussein, Noriega. This hypocritical administration can provide no good answer for their support of these dictators: Uribe, Musharrif, bin Laden, Hussein, Noriega.

Whereas I, an honorably discharged former active duty member of the US military have absolutely NO QUALMS about supporting CodePink. Having personally worked with them since January of this year and having NEVER been requested or coerced to support any communistic organization, government, or ideology, I can categorically state for the record that this anonymous fascist cretin is completely FULL OF SHIT.

LOL Eileen, why don't you ask Medea Benjamin to publicly denounce communism and Castro and Hugo Chavez. It will not happen because her sympathies lie with the communists. You are just a shill for that agenda and a nobody. Just because you were in the military that does not mean you are not a traitor. Benedict Arnold was in the military to. So what?

Like any other group, Communists come in a lot of shapes, sizes and colors. This time they’re wearing pink, they’re on the nightly news, and more than anything, they want the mothers and grandmothers of America to identify with them.

If you didn’t know any better, you’d think the leaders of the women’s anti-war group Code Pink got lost on their way to the carpool line. Since October, these hot pink-clad "marching moms" have been spinning the same tale to reporters from coast to coast, the one about how concern for their families moved them to trade their oven mitts for placards and take to the streets in protest of an unjust war on Iraq.

They’ve played the part so convincingly that over the last six months, they’ve become the media darlings of war protest movement, raking in the television talk show invites and making national news when they were arrested in front of the White House. But the untold story is what they were doing before October.

Unless you travel in Marxist circles or work for the FBI or CIA, the names of the Code Pink moms may not ring a bell with you, though you’ve probably been reading news reports about their collective exploits for years. In the wake of their war against capitalism and self-determination, they’ve left a trail of anarchy and destruction that has cost property owners, corporations and consumers millions of dollars.

Naturally, they’ve toned their Marxist rhetoric down for their stint with Code Pink. Though they’ve taken great pains to differentiate themselves from the other, more radical anti-war protesters, they are one and the same. The leaders of Code Pink didn’t merely take part in the Washington and San Francisco protests that made international headlines – they also organized them. In the process, they’ve provided a rare public glimpse of the faces behind the modern, highly organized American Marxist movement. Needless to say, these women have little in common with the carpool moms of America.

At the center of Code Pink is legendary leftist organizer Medea Benjamin, the 50-year-old mother of two widely credited as a chief organizing force behind the 1999 Seattle riots in which 50,000 protesters did millions of dollars worth of property damage in their effort to shut down meetings of the World Trade Organization. In addition to Code Pink, Benjamin’s San Francisco-based human rights organization Global Exchange was the founding force for United for Peace and Justice coalition, the nexus of the anti-war protests.

The United for Peace coalition, which includes Socialist Action and the Socialist Party USA, is also led by Leslie Cagan, who has a long history of activism with the American Communist Party. If you want to know what anti-war activities United for Peace and its more radical partner, Act Now To Stop War & End Racism (ANSWER) have planned for the near future or contact information for how you can join in, you can click on the Communist World Workers Party website, one of the central grassroots clearing houses for communist organizers in the United States and around the world.

The mindset of Benjamin and her friends can best be summed up by her description in the San Francisco Chronicle of how she felt on her first pilgrimage to Cuba in the early 1980s. Compared to life in the United States, the communist social equality of Cuba "made it seem like I died and went to heaven," Benjamin enthused. Now it appears that Benjamin is trying to recreate it here.

The ties that continue to bind Benjamin, Cagan and the others behind Code Pink and today’s anti-war movement were formed in the early-to-mid 1980s when the still young Marxist-American activists found the cause that first unified them: a communist government in Nicaragua. Using the same sort of incestuous, sprawling coalitions they created to oppose the war in Iraq and the invasion of Afghanistan after Sept. 11, they helped aid the Marxist Sandinista regime in its struggle against the American-backed Contras for control of the Nicaraguan government.

Benjamin worked as a project coordinator for Institute for Food and Development Policy (IFDP), which was widely credited with aiding the Marxist Sandinista regime while Cagan, coordinator of the National Mobilization for Justice and Peace in Central America, led marches against US aid to the contras at home that at times attracted upwards of 75,000 people.

When Sand Brim, the widely interviewed voice of Code Pink, insisted to the reporters who interviewed her in January that she was not an activist, just a businesswoman with reservations about war, her 1985 stint in Nicaragua must have slipped her mind. As the executive director of Medical Aid, Brim flew an American neurosurgeon to San Salvador to operate on Marxist Revolutionary Party Commander Nidia Diaz’s hand, which had been injured in combat. That Diaz’s group had claimed responsibility for the murders of four U.S. Marines and nine civilians two months before was apparently not an issue for Brim. Nor were such ironies a problem for Kirsten Moller, the current executive director of Global Exchange and Code Pink organizer who, like Benjamin, also worked for IFDP in the 80s.

In the 1990s, Benjamin and other Code Pink Marxists focused their energies on organizing sometimes-violent protests against free trade across the globe, targeting large corporations with high-profile campaigns and lawsuits that cost consumers and companies like Gap, Nike and Starbucks millions of dollars. As with the anti-war protests of the moment, the Marxist World Worker’s Party website has played a crucial organizing role in their anti-corporate activities, letting would-be agitators know when and where to show up for demonstrations.

Meanwhile, other Code Pink organizers were making a name for themselves in domestic and eco-terrorism in the 1990s. Code Pink Co-Founder Jodie Evans also sits on the board of directors of Rain Forest Action Network (RAN), a radical anti-capitalist, anti-corporate coalition of environmental groups co-founded by Mike Roselle, who also founded the domestic terrorist organization Earth Liberation Front (ELF), which along with the Animal Liberation Front (ALF) is ranked the No. 1 domestic terrorism threat by the FBI. The FBI attributes over 600 criminal acts and $43 million in damages to the two groups since 1996. Wherever RAN pops up, you’ll also tend to find the Ruckus Society, which has trained activists for ELF/ALF. Ruckus Society organizer Steve Kretzmann, also a Code Pink coordinator, has helped train activists in the agitation tactics that have earned the Ruckus Society its reputation. The Ruckus Society, it’s also worth mentioning, is a coalition member of Benjamin’s United for Peace and Justice.

Code Pink may be communism central for the moment, but if the past is any indication, the group will be left to die on the vine as soon as public attention shifts away from the war in Iraq. Like the other wedge issues these activists are so skilled at creating and taking advantage of, the Iraqi conflict is little more than an opportunity to ingratiate themselves with the American public and swell their volunteer rosters while energizing and solidifying the organization they’d been building since the Seattle riots.

While it may seem chaotic with its mass of groups with varied interests, "the movement" as the organizers like to call it, is built around a simple theme: that America and the rest of the world is increasingly controlled by corporate powers that threaten democratic rights. Its goals, as laid out by Benjamin and others in a variety of newspapers over the years, are clear-cut.

They want to redistribute wealth from the top tiers of society to the poorest Americans by raising minimum wages, choking off trade, pushing up inflation, limiting corporate growth and dragging down the stock market, cutting into the profits of the country’s largest corporations or shutting them down completely and prompting white collar layoffs.

As Benjamin explained to The Sunday Oregonian in 2000, these changes would be made slowly, perhaps over 20 years or more. Though she admits that the above would cause an economic shakedown or even a stock-market crash, she insists the changes would lead to a "healthier, more stable economy."

"Seattle was this kind of battle cry," Benjamin told the San Jose Mercury News in 2000. "We now know we can mobilize hundreds of thousands of people."

But to the dismay of the movement’s organizers, September 11 crushed some of that momentum. Ironically enough, September 11 was the day they’d planned to announce their biggest demonstration yet, which was slated to draw well over 100,000 protesters to Washington from around the world in late September. It was instead replaced with a small peace demonstration.

The Code Pink ladies have been biding their time ever since, reaching out to middle America, building their contact lists and dreaming of the Marxist America that might one day be.
