Code Pink gets a taste of their own medicine
« on: January 15, 2008, 02:22:41 PM »
CODEPINK bit off a little more than they could chew when they tried to stage a demonstration against anti-Castro activist Luis Posada Carriles: Anti-war group aborts demonstration plans in Little Havana.

Peace activists in pink dresses and tiaras demanded the arrest of anti-communist militant Luis Posada Carriles Saturday, but aborted plans for a demonstration in Little Havana after Carriles supporters rushed their vehicle.

The six activists, of the Codepink anti-war group, had planned to speak to reporters outside the landmark Versailles restaurant to publicize their campaign against Carriles— a former CIA operative wanted in Venezuela in connection with the 1976 bombing of a Cuban airliner.

However they were met by some 200 irate Cuban-Americans who consider Carriles a champion of freedom. Some ran at the activists’ truck as they arrived, tearing off its pink fringe, while others shouted sexist slurs.

“We’re not in Cuba. We’re supposed to have free speech,” said Medea Benjamin, one of the group’s founders. “This is indicative of how a small group of Cuban-Americans are holding the rest of the community hostage.”

Carriles supporters sprinted through surrounding streets looking for Benjamin’s truck while bystanders shouted “prostitutes” at her group. They eventually decided to meet with press in the parking lot of a downtown police precinct three miles away.

Benjamin said the group would stick with plans to distribute postcards in Miami Beach and other parts of the city, asking the FBI to Posada Carriles on its most wanted list.

About calling Carriles an “activist” above, even though he’s been accused of involvement in some pretty bad things—if the AP can call Osama bin Laden and Hamas terrorists “militants” and “activists” then the same label should be applied to a fighter against the Castro regime.

No, my friends, there’s only one really progressive idea. And that is the idea of legally limiting the power of the government. That one genuinely liberal, genuinely progressive idea — the Why in 1776, the How in 1787 — is what needs to be conserved. We need to conserve that fundamentally liberal idea. That is why we are conservatives. --Bill Whittle

Now they know how we roll in the 305... We're liberal as hell, but the moment you say ANYTHING good about communism or Castro, your ass is grass.

Dumbc*nts.

What is sad is they don't see it. "Freedom of speech applies to ME, not THEE.  And anything or anyone that interferes with it violates the Constitution!"  Too damn bad they never read the thing.

It's more ironic when you find out that she used to live in Cuba, and was kicked out for writing editorials against the government.

Dumbass.

She is protesting the anti-Castro Cuban Americans who want a democracy in Cuba while she admits that Cuba has no free speech yet she wants it for herself here.  I also bet you a hundred bucks that she is just like DU and loves Castro (otherwise she wouldn't be protesting the anti-Castro people) and claims she would love it if the US was just like Cuba, a socialist paradise, but secretly she would hate living there.  But to people like her, "SOME" people need a dictator....just not her.  I really hate ****ing liberals.

I didn't know she lived there.  Then why exactly is she protesting the anti-Castro guy?

Because Code Pink is a bucket full of retards.
All the great things are simple, and many can be expressed in a single word: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope.
