The leftier liberals in Code Pink are protesting the Marines Corps recruiting station in Berkeley, California. They are blocking access to the building where the station is located. They even want reserved parking spaces and permits to violate the noise ordinances. Never mind that there are other businesses in the building and in that area that they are affecting detrimentally. Never mind that they are loud, rude, and obnoxious. They are convinced that their self-righteous bigotry excuses them from any trace of proper public behavior.
The city council of Berkeley seems to be supporting the idiots while taking Federal funds for their city. Ok, if Berkeley wishes to be against the Corps, let them. Also let them be deprived of any and all Federal funding and services. That would also mean National Guard – they are also military with Federal funding. No disaster relief for anything or anyone in Berkeley if they were honest in their position.
Among the nuttier lefty rants is the constant mantra – George Bush started this war to get Iraq’s oil. Bull. To my knowledge we have not taken one drop of Iraqi oil. Let the left come out from under its tin-foil hats and show us dummies where the oil is and who has profited from it. If there were one shred of truth to that accusation the lefty newsies would be beating us to death with it.
Actually, I think we should take Iraqi oil. We should take exactly enough to repay the cost of freeing those people. We should take enough to repay the cost of all the infrastructure improvements we have been making to their country. The people of Iraq will benefit from the roads, bridges and buildings. Not the people of the United States. It is only fair the Iraqi resources be used to pay for the benefits to that country. The oil should be calculated at fair market value. We do not need to make a profit, but we should not pay for their free ride.
Back to the CodePink people. To quote their website: “CODEPINK is a women-initiated grassroots peace and social justice movement working to end the war in Iraq, stop new wars, and redirect our resources into healthcare, education and other life-affirming activities. We reject the Bush administration’s fear-based politics that justify violence, and instead calls for policies based on compassion, kindness and a commitment to international law. With an emphasis on joy and humor, CODEPINK women and men seek to activate, amplify and inspire a community of peacemakers through creative campaigns and a commitment to non-violence.”
Blocking access to public buildings, waving signs, cursing military recruiters is “joy and humor”? Different definition than I know. George Orwell pointed out that one of the major tools of tyranny is redefining language.
These idiots have their heads in the sand. If there is no military, then we will lose the current war. It is not fear to look at a mad aggressor and decide that you must defend or die. The fact is that the “peace-loving” religion of Islam has a stated goal of dominating the earth. Islam has killed over 270 million people since its founding by a nutcase. Sharia law encourages killing, rape, torture, and slavery as acceptable practices. Shari law states that women are only worth half what the least man is worth. Shari law states that it is acceptable to kill women who are not behaving in accordance with accepted Moslem practices.
Yeah, sure. Let’s respond to the next murderous attack with compassion. Compassion for whom? For the murderous attackers? For the families of the victims? Do we just stand by and compassionately watch the butchers kill more people? My idea of compassion is to destroy the murderer before there are more victims. Not theirs, apparently. Compassion does not live in Sharia law. It is a Christian concept.
There will be no protests under Sharia law. There will be no “alternate sexuality” under Islam. Didn’t they see the mad dog ruler of Iran in New York? “We don’t have homosexuals”. Period. That is not even a possible lifestyle under Sharia law. The penalty is death.
I guess they really are that stupid. The only thing that stands between them and subjugation is the military. If we “don’t study war no more” the forces of Islam will be here the next day. Do they think a little local police force can protect them from armed invasion? Libs wanted to “get Binladin” with police type tactics. Libs, as exemplified by Clinton appointee Janet Reno, wanted the forces of law (FBI) to act as assault troops in Waco. Libs just don’t understand that cops cannot be military and armies cannot be cops.
Protest Islam? They wouldn’t think of it. It is only freedom and Christianity that are abused by these idiots. If they were genuine they would be protesting tyranny and injustice everywhere in the world. If they were genuine they would be protesting Islam’s treatment of women. But – they are not really as advertised. They only hate freedom, responsibility, the United States, Christianity and decency.
