Thumps Up From Berkeley Commie For Anti-war Groups

The head of the Chamber of Commerce of Berkeley facing lady with the camera.

This is about the above photo, it was sent to me and written by someone that was at the Suppot the Troops Rally:

"I was standing across the street from the Marine Office and he started talking to me. About how these kind of events are ruining the businesses in Berkeley. And that they are very damaging to the city.

I asked him if he lived in Berkeley, and he said no.

It was then that he told me he was head of the Chamber of Commerce of Berkeley. He kept pretty much saying the same thing over and over while I tried to tell him why we came today.

And told him it wasn't us, but the code pink, ANSWER, World Can't Wait and various other commie groups that have disrupted his (his?) little town.

When I tried to impress upon him that it was the antagonizers of the Marine Office that he needs to have stop their subersive actions, he would interrupt me every time.

He would not entertain the thought of stopping code pink, etc, but was very negative about a Positive Support Rally for the Marine Office.

He would have none of it, and would only focus on our very Positive Troop Support Rally that is and has been ruining business in Berkeley. A true slimy politician.

When I mentioned that the news is out that he and the Mayor have mended fences and are united in purpose, he said Oh, that's what the media says, not what is really true.

So I asked him (he had that camera pointed at him all this time) what is the truth then, and he waffled and said that he had talked to the leaders of the rally a little earlier and I could ask them.

I told him, why not tell me with this camera here so we can know the truth.

He didn't want to go on record with any statement at all.

I backed away, and he did start talking to the camerawoman and I watched for a minute of so, and then the speakers started so I left him with the lady with the camera."

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

What a total worthless jerk, he only minds if it is a group of supporters for our troops that are on the sidewalks and not if it is CODE PINKO's, ANSWER, or the other anti-war groups. The anti-war groups are there every Wednesday and sometimes all week long and that is ok with this mentally challenged person.

What a worthless sack of skin.
He talks out both sides of his face--it's hurting the businesses in town, but won't do anything to help stop it.
What does he want?

Love the Sebastian graphic!!!

Sadly, too many of the folks there just want to live in their little Utopian fantasy and really resent anyone who comes in and brings a dose of reality.
I mean, they actually are waiting for rainbows and butterflies to shoot out of the unicorn's hindquarters.

Yeah, I bet Code Pink and the other anti-military groups are real big spenders and contributers to Berkeley's business establishments. That obviously is a surreal little world in Berkeley. If this guy is head of CofC, then the business climate must really suck.

Tuff, these elitists need to feel the wrath for their errant behavior. I try to do business with American companies, some do masquerade and exist in Marxist enclaves like Berkeley, some are located in ajacent neighboring communities, all deserve the same scrutiny. Do a Google search of businesses in and around Berkeley, places like Emeryville, El Cerrito, Albany, Richmond and San Pablo to the North, then Piedmont, Oakland, Alameda and San Francisco to the South.
I will not knowingly do business with them, think about who and where some services originate, auto and life insurance companies, lending institutuions, wire and wireless services, entertainment and educational literature or other propaganda. When you find one and decide to switch, research the alternative, then be sure to let the old business know why you are switching. If you don't believe the lefties boycott conservative businesses think again,they have been since Bush took over and are revamping their website, it formerly listed every busines who contributed to the GOP or the Dems, the GOP are labeled in red and the Dems are in blue..
These are just a few local only businesses some with international and nationwide tentacles. It's the elites and the faculty who are behind this and once the money stops they'll have to be a bit introspective.

Yankeemmom, giggle thank you so much.

Tom, LOL that is funny, there is no way the hippies spend like the people that support the troops. They need all their money for those crazy stupid pnk outfits and drugs.
