House Majority Whip Rep. James Clyburn (SC) recently accused Republicans of “aiding and abetting terrorism” because of their support for the Tea Party movement. With all due respect, Rep. Clyburn needs to clean out his own party first before he has standing to say anything on the subject.
Top Democrat Party activists Jodie Evans and Medea Benjamin, through their group Code Pink, have spent the past eight years terrorizing soldiers, their families and public officials on the homefront while working with terrorists and state sponsors of terrorism abroad. Rather than being condemned and disowned, Code Pink is embraced by President Barack Obama and leading Democrats while being celebrated by the media.
The Code Pink Democrats have harassed wounded soldiers and their families at military hospitals in Washington, D.C. and San Diego; they have repeatedly targeted military recruiting centers for abuse; they cruelly taunted the children of military families at a White House Halloween party; they have terrorized government officials at http://a%20href="http://a%20href=">their homes and they have led a campaign for the kidnapping of former President Bush and his wife Laura (for this they enlisted the support of the Muslim Brotherhood).
Abroad, the Code Pink Democrats have worked with state sponsors of terrorism including the governments of Saddam Hussein, Cuba’s Castro brothers, Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Syria’s Bashar Assad as well as the anti-American governments of Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez, Nicaragua’s Daniel Ortega and Bolivia’s Evo Morales.
In December 2008, the Code Pink Democrats led a shoe throwing protest in front of the White House to celebrate an incident in Baghdad when an Iraqi “journalist” threw his shoes at President George W. Bush. This encouragement of violence against Bush was a propaganda bouquet by the Code Pink Democrats to their terrorist allies aroud the world.
These Code Pink Democrats have also worked with terrorists including Hamas, Hezbollah, the Taliban, Sunni terrorists in Iraq and the father of Islamic terrorism: the Muslim Brotherhood. The Code Pink Democrats have bragged about giving cash and humanitarian aid to terrorists who target Americans, Israelis and free Iraqis.
The Code Pink Democrats publicly endorsed the terrorists in Iraq in 2005 at the World Tribunal on Iraq.
“There is widespread opposition to the occupation. Political, social, and civil resistance through peaceful means is subjected to repression by the occupying forces. It is the occupation and its brutality that has provoked a strong armed resistance and certain acts of desperation. By the principles embodied in the UN Charter and in international law, the popular national resistance to the occupation is legitimate and justified. It deserves the support of people everywhere who care for justice and freedom.”
Jodie Evans also gave her personal endorsement of the terrorists killing our soldiers:
“We must begin by really standing with the Iraqi people and defending their right to resist. I can remain myself against all forms of violence, and yet I cannot judge what someone has to do when pushed to the wall to protect all they love. The Iraqi people are fighting for their country, to protect their families and to preserve all they love. They are fighting for their lives, and we are fighting for lies.” (AlterNet, June 26, 2005)
While the Democrat Party complains about Republicans saying things like “You lie!” and “Baby killer!” on the House floor, at least the Republicans have the courage to speak for themselves. Democrats have given special Congressional access to members of the Code Pink Democrats so they could disrupt President Bush’s second inaugural address, a speech to Congress by Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al Maliki and assault Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
In December 2008, the Code Pink Democrats led a shoe throwing protest in front of the White House to celebrate an incident in Baghdad when an Iraqi “journalist” threw his shoes at President George W. Bush. This encouragement of violence against Bush was a propaganda bouquet by the Code Pink Democrats to their terrorist allies around the world.
Code Pink Democrat co-founder Jodie Evans was tapped by Barack Obama at the beginning of his presidential campaign in February 2007 to co-host his breakthrough Hollywood fundraiser. Just weeks before, Evans and the Code Pink Democrats were in Cuba working with the Castro government to put pressure on the United States to free the al Qaeda detainees held at Guantanamo.
Jodie Evans served as a fundraising bundler for Obama’s presidential campaign. She donated the maximum money to Obama’s primary and general election campaigns. She also donated thousands of dollars to the Obama Victory Fund, a joint vehicle by Obama and the Democrat party.
Jodie Evans and Medea Benjamin serve on the board of the Progressive Democrats of America. Serving alongside Evans and Benjamin on PDA’s board are elected Democrats: House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. John Conyers (MI); Rep. Donna Edwards (MD); Rep. Raul Grijalva (AZ); Rep. Barbara Lee (CA); Rep. Jim McGovern (MA) and Rep. Lynn Woolsey (CA). Rep. Maxine Waters (CA) is listed as part of the PDA Emeritus Board for having served on the board between 2005-2009.
When the Code Pink Democrats delivered $650,000 in cash and humanitarian aid to what Benjamin called “the other side” in Fallujah in late December 2004 as the Marines were clearing al Qaeda out of the Iraqi city, they carried with them letters of support from Democrats Sen. Barbara Boxer (CA); Rep. Henry Waxman (CA) Rep. Dennis Kucinich (OH) and Rep. Raul Grijalva (AZ).
Five years later, in December 2009, the Code Pink Democrats delivered thousands of dollars in “humanitarian aid” to Hamas-controlled Gaza supported by letters from Democrats Sen. John Kerry (MA) and Rep. Andre Carson. Hamas guaranteed the Code Pink Democrat’s safety during their trip to Gaza.
The Code Pink Democrats also worked with the late Democrat Rep. John Murtha (PA), awarding him their “Pink Badge of Courage.” Murtha, in turn, shielded the Code Pink Democrats from arrest by Capitol Police.
Barack Obama has ignored several appeals by veterans and military families to disavow Jodie Evans and the Code Pink Democrats. Instead, he gave Jodie Evans a photo-op for her to be seen delivering anti-American propaganda about Afghanistan after she met with the Taliban. He has also given Jodie Evans special access to his Deputy Chief of Staff and the Office of Public Engagement.
The Code Pink Democrats have been given carte blanche by Obama and the Democrats to consort with terrorists abroad and terrorize opponents at home. When will the mainstream media, including Fox, take notice?
