Berkley Commies Vs. The Good Guys

Berkeley Mayor Tom Bates, participating in the siege

The pinko communist citizens of Berklky and what they had to say about our Marines and our troops. In this shocking video, code pink calls all United States Marines war criminals. They also claim al qaeda is not a threat to the United States and that World War two was "wrong."

Military supporters descended on Berkeley early Tuesday, demanding the famously liberal California college town rescind its vote that says Marine recruiters are "not welcome in this city."

The pro-military demonstrators were met by anti-war protesters who had camped out overnight, setting the stage for a dramatic showdown late in the day when the City Council is to discuss whether to revoke its previous vote.

"Their treasonous action, especially at this time of war right now, is not acceptable," said Mary Pearson, a spokeswoman for the group Move America Forward

Wild Thing's comment........


Vietnam veteran interviewed: "Code Pink and ANSWER are together out here doing this and it reminds me of the horrible reception I got when returning from Vietnam!" (voice breaking with emotion)

Loud chanting "NO FEDERAL FUNDS FOR BERKELY!" Signs are GREAT!

This is from one of our lurkers here at TW that reads this blog every day.

"I'm in Berkeley. I just came back from my lunch break -- while walking outside, I saw a plane flying overhead towing a big sign that stated clearly, in red letters, "Semper Fidelis."

And this...........

HERE is a video that shows how the pinko communists at the entrance demonstration outside the Marine Corps recruiting office in Berkeley.

VIDEO a must see

More this and this is about the Democrats and of course vile Harry Reid! dfrom The Hill Harry Reid’s move delayed rap on Berkeley:

Senate Democrats left two days of legislative business officially open last week, hobbling GOP efforts to bring up a bill punishing a liberal California city for scolding Marine Corps recruiters.

Republicans said Democrats clearly wanted to avoid being forced to choose between the Marine Corps or Berkeley, Calif., known for its liberalism and fervent anti-war positions.

Instead of adjourning at the end of a day as usual, the Senate “recessed” twice, a move that, under Senate rules, slows the process of adding new bills to the calendar. Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) did not adjourn until last Friday, effectively pushing back floor consideration on the GOP bill until Tuesday — the same day that the city council is likely to tone down its call for Marine Corps recruiters to leave town.

“The only reason to recess is to block something, and the thing that got blocked by Reid’s stall tactic was the Semper Fi Act,” said spokesman Wesley Denton, referring to the bill introduced by his boss, Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.).
“Democrats have chosen not to defend the Marine Corps, but to pander to anti-war protesters and Berkeley officials that are actively trying to impede military recruitment.”

That tactic effectively delayed an effort by DeMint and five other conservatives to bring forward a bill, introduced on Feb. 6, that would strip Berkeley of $2 million worth of earmarks inserted into the $516 billion omnibus spending bill Bush signed into law at the end of 2007. According to three GOP aides, DeMint signaled on Feb. 6 that he would request that the bill be placed on the legislative calendar before the decision was made to recess, rather than adjourn, for the night.

“Berkeley needs to learn that their actions have consequences,” DeMint said.

The California Democrats who sponsored the earmarks, Sen. Barbara Boxer and Rep. Barbara Lee, say they will fight for the funding, which includes a lunch program at a Berkeley school district, ferry service and a new endowment at the University of California-Berkeley.

“Senator DeMint may not like what the Berkeley City Council has to say, but to punish the children, police, first responders and university for something they had nothing to do with is just plain wrong,” said Natalie Ravitz, a spokeswoman for Boxer.

Republicans introduced the bill to reprimand the city for its decision to tell the Marine Corps in a letter that a recruiting office was “not welcome” in the city and that the recruiters were “uninvited and unwelcome intruders.”

The council also voted to make it easier for the anti-war group Code Pink to protest against the recruiters, assigning a parking space once a week for six months in front of the office and relaxing noise restrictions so that the activists can more easily interrupt the Marines’ activities.

This from Berkley:

BERKELEY, Calif in Berkley

Hundreds of demonstrators representing both sides of the Iraq War debate squared off in Berkeley early Tuesday, exchanging verbal taunts and angry insults as police stood nearby while the hours counted down to a controversial City Council vote over the future of Marine recruiting in the Bay Area college town.

"We're delighted. We're excited about the whole thing. It just shines a much needed light on the issue of the war," said peace activist and Code Pink cofounder Medea Benjamin.

"It would be very very challenging for us to try to separate the groups. Certainly, if there's any volatility, if there's anything physical that happens, we are going to manage that," said Berkeley police officer Mary Kusmiss.

The Marine Corps says it has no plans on abandoning its recruiting station. Berkeley is still facing the threat of having federal and state funds cut off if it tries to get the Marines out. Medea Benjamin says that threat shouldn't be taken seriously.

"Then give Berkeley back the $56 million that it will spend this year alone on the war so we can invest it in what we want here, which would be schools and health care and green jobs and solar panels for our homes. That would make us a lot more secure than a war in Iraq," argued Benjamin.

LOVE it thank you ! God bless our Marines!!!!!

Those Code Pinkos are making the rest of us girls look bad.
The war is what it is. We don't have time machines to go back and stop it from happening.
All we can do is support our troops and the Commander in Chief.
No one said you had to stay here--we have open borders, you know.
Try acting this way in Russia--do you like Siberia? Because that's where you'd go.
Freedom of speech I'm all for, but you have to remember, it works both ways. Too bad you can't see that, Pinko Bitches.

I'd guess these are also the same kinds of people who ratted out a concealed Jew in Germany in 1940, turned in their neighbors in the USSR to the authorities, and cranked up the trains to the ovens.

They aren't free thinkers, they're weak conformists, unable to cope with freedom and its responsibilities. They want nothing more than to escape from the folds of reality, and get a narcissistic kick at the same time.

By the way, that mayor cuts a figure in that pink beret, doesn't he?

Lynn yes, they take freedom of speech to another lever like yelling fire in a theatre. I always felt freedom of speech meant to be responsible too. This protesting calling our soldiers killers and murderers makes me so angry it makes my blood feel like it is boiling.

Rhod good point! Yes I bet they are too, that same kind of low life that would do something like you said. They are all such a waste of air and I would tell that to their faces if I ever see one.

Over 1 million Iraqis have died because of our invasion, but it's the *MARINES* who keep complaining about their hurt feelings and wounded egos? Someone call Oprah.

Van I let your comment through just so I could tell you that you are full of it.
I will try to educate you a wee bit. First of all you are not considering the amount of Iraqis that have been killed by their OWN, the insurgents the terrorists! Hello!!!!

And second as far as our troops being an invasion, how sad for you to side with the enemy. You must be a truly miserable person. To think as you do does not impress the enemy at all. They will behead you just as fast as they would take me out and kill me or anyone that is not one of them. You are wasting your time defending the terrorists and attacking our awesome troops.

Terrorists = death from their death cult

Our troops = life and freedom and happiness.
