Code Pink Cunts

I think perhaps the time has come to take off the gloves when dealing with the "peace" protestors. Let's start using the appropriate words to describe this rabble. Un-American. Un-Patriotic. Anti-Democratic. Cruel. Scum. Medea Benjamin and her ilk have blood on their hands. They have no shame and no decency. They have the unmitigated gall to use words like "patriotism" and "freedom" when they haven't the slightest understanding of what they mean. Their goal is to maim and destroy the United States in any way they can. They can shove their faux patriotic platitudes up their asses.

I certainly see nothing in their latest "protest" that deserves any respect. In fact it would be wise in my opinion to begin investigating Code Pink, and ANSWER and all the other so called "peace" organizations. I bet it would be shocking to find out what rot is festering under their pretty-in-pink exterior. I smell Castro, Chavez, and Al Qaeda.

Let's start with the venue they chose for their latest "protest." Was it at the White House? No. The Pentagon? No. Lafayette Park? No. Well, where was it then, you ask? Hold on to your stomach - its about to drop into your shorts. They chose Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C. Oh yes, you heard me right. They went to protest at a hospital where wounded soldiers are cared for. Here's a video of the protest - barf warning for those of you with weak stomachs. Here are just a few of the "patriotic" protest tactics they used:
  • The protesters hold signs that read "Maimed for Lies" and "Enlist here and die for Halliburton."
  • On Aug. 19, as the anti-war protesters chanted slogans such as "George Bush kills American soldiers..."
  • Most of the demonstrations have been held on Friday evenings, a popular time for the family members of wounded soldiers to visit the hospital.

How very patriotic of them. Excerpts from the Cybercast News Service Special Report:

Code Pink Women for Peace, one of the groups backing anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan's vigil outside President Bush's ranch in Crawford Texas, organizes the protests at Walter Reed as well.

Kevin Pannell, who was recently treated at Walter Reed and had both legs amputated after an ambush grenade attack near Baghdad in 2004, considers the presence of the anti-war protesters in front of the hospital "distasteful."

When he was a patient at the hospital, Pannell said he initially tried to ignore the anti-war activists camped out in front of Walter Reed, until witnessing something that enraged him.

"We went by there one day and I drove by and [the anti-war protesters] had a bunch of flag-draped coffins laid out on the sidewalk. That, I thought, was probably the most distasteful thing I had ever seen. Ever," Pannell, a member of the Army's First Cavalry Division, told Cybercast News Service.

"You know that 95 percent of the guys in the hospital bed lost guys whenever they got hurt and survivors' guilt is the worst thing you can deal with," Pannell said, adding that other veterans recovering from wounds at Walter Reed share his resentment for the anti-war protesters.

"We don't like them and we don't like the fact that they can hang their signs and stuff on the fence at Walter Reed," he said. "[The wounded veterans] are there to recuperate. Once they get out in the real world, then they can start seeing that stuff (anti-war protests). I mean Walter Reed is a sheltered environment and it needs to stay that way."

"[The anti-war protesters] have no business here. If they want to protest policy, they should be at the Capitol, they should be at the White House," said Nina Burke. "The only reason for being here is to talk to [the] wounded and [anti-war protests are] just completely inappropriate."

Albion Wilde concurred, arguing that "it's very easy to pick on the families of the wounded. They are very vulnerable ... I feel disgusted."

[The anti-war protesters] are really showing an enormous lack of respect for just everything that America has always stood for. They lost the election and now they are really, really angry and so they are picking on the wrong people," Wilde added.

Surprisingly, one of the protesters seems to have a small piece of his conscience left in-tact.

At least one anti-war demonstrator conceded that standing out in front of a military hospital where wounded soldiers and their families are entering and exiting, might not be appropriate.

"Maybe there is a better place to have a protest. I am not sure," said a man holding a sign reading "Stop the War," who declined to be identified.

I'm sure comrade Medea has had him disappeared to a re-education camp by now. Medea Benjamin has learned how to suppress dissent from the best of them.

Code Pink, the group organizing the anti-war demonstrations in front of the Walter Reed hospital, has a controversial leader and affiliations. As Cybercast News Service previously reported, Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin has expressed support for the Communist Viet Cong in Vietnam and the Nicaraguan Sandinistas.

In 2001, Benjamin was asked about anti-war protesters sympathizing with nations considered to be enemies of U.S. foreign policy, including the Viet Cong and the Sandinistas. "There's no one who will talk about how the other side is good," she reportedly told the San Francisco Chronicle.

Benjamin has also reportedly praised the Cuban regime of Fidel Castro. Benjamin told the San Francisco Chronicle that her visit to Cuba in the 1980s revealed to her a great country. "It seem[ed] like I died and went to heaven," she reportedly said.

Then there's the humble proletarian "Luke" who has some words of wisdom for us.

But Luke and the other anti-war protesters dismissed the message of the counter demonstrators. "We know most of the George Bush supporters have never spent a day in uniform, have never been closer to a battlefield than seeing it through the television screen," Luke said.

Unlike comrade "Luke" who has fought tirelessly on the battlefield of the revolution helping to bring the dawn of the workers paradise that Code Pink and comrade Medea long for.

Its time to stop treating these groups and individuals as if they constitute a "loyal opposition." Clearly their goal is not to correct or chastise, but to destroy and demoralize. That isn't patriotism - its treason.
