CODEPINK Honors that coward Murtha
Imagine that you have lost a leg or arm fighting in Iraq. Outside your window there are protesters holding up signs mocking your sacrifice for your country. The signs read "Maimed for Lies" and "Enlist here and die for Halliburton."
You ask yourself, "What kind of heartless animals would organize this display of mental cruelty?" No surprise, the answer is Code Pink (1).
But you have to wonder why they target soldiers who are already out of the war. Wouldn't these signs make more sense outside a recruiting station? It seems to me an action of pure spite, as if Code Pink simply hates America and her defenders.
Thank God no self-respecting military man would ever meet with such filthy anti-American cowards and defeatists.
CODEPINK Thanks Murtha
CODEPINK co-founder Gael Murphy and DC coordinator Allison Yorra met with Congressman Murtha to thank him for his courageous stand on Iraq. We presented him with our pink badge of courage and pink flowers sent by CODEPINK members nationwide.
Rep Murtha was very appreciative of these gestures as he has been receiving many responses to his public denouncement of the war. Murtha said that while many of the calls and emails have been supportive, those opposed have been quite vitriolic. He stated that the best support of his position and of the troops would be to ask legislators to support H.J Res 73 (Murtha's resolution).
In addition to the flowers, Murtha requested that we use additional donations for the wounded at Walter Reed. DC CODEPINK along with Veterans for Peace, Military Families Speak Out, US Labor Against the War and other peace groups involved in the weekly vigil at Walter Reed recently delivered baskets of goodies to the wounded at Walter Reed. Together, with Murtha's office, we will be continuing this outpouring of kindness and support to the wounded soldiers from CODEPINK."
How nice, baskets of goodies. I wonder if the card reads, "Hah, hah, you are a cripple for a crap war."?
Let me make two points:
- J.J Res 73 in short is : "Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That:
SECTION 1. The deployment of United States forces in Iraq, by direction of Congress, is hereby terminated and the forces involved are to be redeployed at the earliest practicable date."
Let me translate this into plain English: "Resolved by the cowardly Senate and defeatist House of Representatives of the United States of America in yellow-backed Congress assembled, That:
We cut and run.
- When CODEPINK says peace groups involved in the weekly vigil at Walter Reed recently delivered baskets of goodies, they mean they stalk and harass our wounded heroes. (2)
For those of you who wonder how a war hero could take such a cowardly position on Iraq, wonder no more: Murtha's War Hero Status has been Called Into Question (3).
More evidence of Murtha's cowardice and stupidity at Vets For The Truth to redeploy John Murtha.
John Murtha, liar, coward, defeatist, aids and abets our enemies.
Code Pink Praises Murtha
Code Pink was launched in 2002 by approximately 100 women opposed to a U.S. preemptive strike against Iraq. The group has conducted "vigils" in front of the White House and outside the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C.
As Cybercast News Service previously reported Code Pink was criticized for picketing the military hospital holding signs that read "Maimed for a Lie" and "Enlist Here to Die for Halliburton."
Sweetness & Light, Code Pink Stalk Injured Walter Reed Vets
CNS Reporter Marc Marano has put together a chilling video report on the vile protests that have been going on for weeks in front of the Army's Walter Reed Hospital:Washington (CNSNews.com) – The anti-war demonstrators, who obtain their protest permits from the Washington, D.C., police department, position themselves directly in front of the main entrance to the Army Medical Center, which is located in northwest D.C., about five miles from the White House.
Among the props used by the protesters are mock caskets, lined up on the sidewalk to represent the death toll in Iraq.
Washington Post, Web Site Attacks Critic of War
Former representative Don Bailey (D-Pa.), who was quoted in the article, confirmed his account to The Washington Post yesterday.
In a conversation on the House floor in the early 1980s, said Bailey, who won a Silver Star and three Bronze Stars in Vietnam, Murtha told him he did not deserve his Purple Hearts. He recalled Murtha saying: "Hey, I didn't do anything like you did. I got a little scratch on the cheek." Murtha's spokeswoman would not address that account.
Bailey, who lost a House race to Murtha after a 1982 redistricting, said "Jack's a coward, and he's a liar" for subsequently denying the conversation. "That just really burned me," he said.
