Code Pinko v. Move America Forward
Posted by Rosemary Welch on February 10, 2008
Now is the time to fight back. If you have to wear pink just to get in under cover, do so. They are on to our plan to show up on the 12th. They are planning to stack the deck by having all code pinkos sitting in those chairs. DO NOT ALLOW THIS. Here is the e-mail I received from Move America Forward:
The radical anti-military group, Code Pink, has been paying attention to our plans to organize a pro-troop demonstration in front of the Berkeley City Council Chambers on Tuesday, February 12th. (Located at 2134 Martin Luther King Jr. Way in Berkeley, CA – CLICK HERE FOR A MAP).
We learned of this posting from Code Pink and their allies today: Anti-war.
EXCERPT: “Our efforts to close the Berkeley Marine Recruiting Station have galvanized national attention. The pro-war forces, represented by the group Move America Forward, are mobilizing to descend on Berkeley on Tuesday, February 12, starting at 5am! They plan to spend the day attempting to intimidate our peace-loving City and City Council.”
As if this were not enough, a member of the city council, Linda Maio, had this to say in an e-mail:
“…we have received info that the marines and their supporters are gearing up to come to the Feb 12th council meeting to shame us and attack us, in large numbers. Now that Laurie and Betty have put on a recommendation to rescind what we did (on the agenda of Feb 12th) we expect they will jam the microphone with their diatribes. Press will be there in full force. The regular meeting starts at 7 p.m. People need to get there early enough to get in and grab a seat. Pls help pass on the word. The fire dept will not allow more people in than room can hold. Therefore, I am urging people to come early and occupy a seat, and be prepared to speak too and represent our city’s values next Tuesday.”
Melanie is asking everyone to be there at the rally 5pm-7pm. I am asking you to be in those seats as soon as possible. It is necessary, it is vital that we show our support for our Marines. Please help spread this news to your friends and family, other bloggers, milbloggers, etc. It is time to take our country back from the news people and the looney left.
Now for some news from Sen. DeMint.
Dear Fellow Conservative,
The City Council of Berkeley last week voted to ask the U.S. Marine Corps to vacate their recruiting office in town, and that if they chose to stay they did so as “uninvited and unwelcome intruders.” Berkeley also voted to give the radical liberal group Code Pink a parking space to protest the Marine Corps and urged them to “impede, passively or actively” the work of Marine Corps recruiters.
During debate of the resolution, one council member called the Marines “the President’s own gangsters” and “trained killers.” Another said the Marines had given the country “horrible karma” and said they had a history of “death and destruction.” In a document drafted to support the resolution against the Marines, the council stated: “Military recruiters are sales people known to lie to and seduce minors and young adults into contracting themselves into military service with false promises regarding jobs, job training, education and other benefits.”
I do not believe a city that has turned its back on our country’s finest deserves $2 million worth of pork-barrel projects. This week I introduced the Semper Fi Act of 2008. The bill would rescind over $2 million in hidden earmarks for Berkeley, California in the 2008 Omnibus Appropriations bill, and transfer the funds to the Marine Corps. But I need your help.
I’m currently working with MoveAmericaFoward.org to petition members of Congress to support the Semper Fi Act of 2008. Here are five ways you can help:
Sign the petition at MoveAmericaForward.org.
Watch this video.
E-mail this video to family and friends.
Tell five people to tell five people about the situation in Berkeley, CA.
Call the Berkeley County Council Members and tell them to support the troops.
Meanwhile, the Marines will continue to bring peace, security, and freedom to the citizens of Berkeley, whether they like it or not. There is a well known slogan outside the Marine Air Base in Beaufort, SC warning passersby of the jets’ loud noises. The slogan says, “The noise you hear is the sound of freedom.”
The irony is the Marines are glad to do it and that is why most Americans are so proud of them. The Marines risk so much fighting for us, now it’s time us to fight for them.
Senator Jim DeMint
I agree. If they do not deserve our honor and respect, then no one does. Let us show them that they are not alone in this war. Let us show them that is NOT Viet Nam, and we shall never allow our dear Naval personnel, Soldiers, Marines, Airmen, National Guardsmen, Coast Guardsmen, and first responders EVER be bullied again. Especially not by some communist pinkos. Have a nice day, and I sure hope you can make it up there.
