Move America Forward’s anti-recruitment report

By Josh Richman
Thursday, March 13th, 2008 at 11:56 am in Afghanistan, Berkeley, Iraq.

Grassroots conservative group Move America Forward, which has spearheaded efforts to shame and boycott Berkeley for the city’s hostile stance toward its U.S. Marine Corps recruiting station, will hold a news conference tomorrow morning, Friday, March 14, at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., to release a report listing acts of civil disobedience or violence at military recruiting stations across the nation in recent years.

From MAF’s news release:

Move America Forward will provide detailed accounts of these attacks, including photographs and documents, to members of the media in attendance.

A new national television ad campaign calling attention to these attacks will also be unveiled.

Attacks on military recruiting centers include shots fired at offices (as happened in Denver, Colorado), bombs planted (a real one in St. Louis, fake ones in Oregon and the detonated explosion at the Times Square recruiting center), windows smashed, manure dumped on recruiting offices, human blood and feces smeared on the offices, recruiters cars have been firebombed (in Alabama and Maryland).

The acts of aggression against military recruiters are part of a broader effort by anti-war activists called “counter-recruitment.” Anti-war/anti-military activists have explained to Move America Forward that the increase in counter-recruitment efforts stems from frustration with Congress for continuing to fund the missions of our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Code Pink and others have indicated that if Congress won’t cut off funding for the war, then they will cut off the flow of available bodies to fight in the war.

Move America Forward vehemently opposes this rationale given the all-volunteer nature of today’s U.S. Armed Forces.

In addition, Move America Forward has also documented discussions by anti-military activists coordinating attacks against military recruiting centers and suggesting ways to reduce the chance of facing criminal prosecution. These findings will also be shared at the news conference.

UPDATE @ 12:50 P.M. THURSDAY: Though I’ve not seen the report yet, MAF spokesman Joe Wierzbicki just sent me a list of recruiting station incidents from recent years. See ‘em after the jump…

Here’s the list exactly as MAF sent it to me:

  • In Vestal, NY, an incendiary device was thrown at an armed forces recruiting center
  • Toledo, OH – manure dumped on recruiting center.
  • Milwaukee, WI – human feces smeared inside a vandalized recruiting center (that has been subject to multiple acts of vandalism – rocks smashing windows, etc…) In one instance they marched with torches to the recruiting center, set off smoke bombs, and splattered paint across the center.
  • In Rockville, MD, bricks smashed windows of an Air Force recruiting center
  • In NYC, prior to the Times Square bombing, protesters had targeted the recruiting center, shutting it down…rocks thrown at Manhattan recruiting center…and burning rag thrown at Parkchester recruiting center.
  • A San Jose, CA military recruiting center was set on fire.
  • An Asheville, NC center was also set on fire.
  • 8 shots were fired into a Denver, CO recruiting center.
  • In Raleigh-Durham, NC, rocks smashed windows of a recruiting center.
  • In Lufkin, TX, recruiters’ cars were shot at with pellet guns.
  • Hoax bombs were planted at Portland, Astoria, and Salem, OR recruiting centers.
  • A Pipe bomb was planted at a St. Louis, MO recruiting center.
  • A fake bomb was also planted at a Stamford, CT center.
  • In Washington, DC, hundreds stormed the recruiting office at 14th and L and ransacked the office, detroying property.
  • In Silverdale, WA, an antiwar protester slashed 42 tires on recruiting vehicles.

      But liberals support the troops! The MSM told me so….

    • Sappho

      Violence is NOT a part of counter-recruitment. A journalist would investigate to see if MAF’s charges are true or false instead of printing their press release as if it were fact. I witnessed MAF members hurting people in Berkeley–they are extremely violent! This article doesn’t mention that MAF’s spokeswoman, hate-monger Melanie Morgan, recently lost her job. Apparently KSFO is in “dire financial straits” due to advertisers pulling their ads when they learned she advocates violence and murder. http://www.ibabuzz.com/politics/2008/03/03/melanie-morgan-canned-from-ksfo/

    • Sappho

      OK, Josh is a blogger not a journalist, and he did cover the Melanie Morgan story thoroughly elsewhere. Still, this piece was inadequate on its own.

    • Josh Richman

      Actually, I am a full-time newspaper reporter, and I have every intention of giving the full report my full scrutiny when it’s released tomorrow. For now, I’ve reported MAF’s claims, clearly attributed.

    • http://www.MoveAmericaForward.org Joe W.

      Sappho: I understand why you’d write what you did, however, there is a distinction I learned when I saw the files on the efforts by individuals within the anti-war movement.

      Some who advocate “counter-recruitment” say that such efforts should be peaceful. Providing information to rebut information or claims by recruiters is something I think everyone can respect – it’s part of the free speech rights of Americans to offer their opinions.

      However, acts of violence have been called for, coordinated, and orchestrated by those who claim to be conducting counter-recruitment.

      These individuals defend their actions by saying, in essence, the ends justifies the means.

      If you abhhor such claims, then denounce those incidents that were posted above. There are actually much more than what we sent over to Josh.

      The problem is that when incidents like the Times Square bombing occur some anti-war groups denounce the violent act, while others do not.

      In contrast, the condemnation by pro-troop groups was nearly, if not completely, universal.

      Why the discrepancy?

      If anti-war and anti-military organizations denounce violence against recruiters, then who is commiting these acts?

      We’ve been told by various anti-war groups that the rationale for violence against recruiters is thus: since Congress did not cut off funding for the war on terror – and specifically Operation Iraqi Freedom – in spite of the change in control of Congress from Republican to Democrat… then the only effective tool available to anti-war activists was to cut off the supply of bodies to fight the war.

      I have to tell you that we find such an attitude disgraceful and abhorrent.

      AND FOR THE RECORD: I am associated with Move America Forward and work for their PR company.

      So, now the question becomes this: will anti-war activists and elected officials denounce what are essentially acts of terrorism being commmited by SOME in the anti-war movement?

      The “counter-recruitment” people are committing a federal felony, in violation of Title 18, U.S. Code, Section 2388. Why aren’t they being prosecuted? Why is the U.S. Department of Justice unwilling to enforce federal law? Please ask Sen. DeMint to address these questions to the Attorney General in the near future. Thank you.

    • Intheknow

      Historically, the government infiltrates groups and encourages emotionally unstable individuals prone to violence. I can hardly wait to here Move America Forward’s claim of who these violent individuals are and how they found them.
      The government is just waiting for an opportunity to brand dissenters as terrorists and then just down all protests. This is just a preliminary step probably to making it a federal crime to protest at any recruitment center. I don’t know of ANYONE who sanctions violence. They should be named.

      You know what i don’t care anymore. I’m so tired of seeing these “peacniks” and anti- militarism of our youth zealots spit thier rhetoric about people that have volunteered yes i said it THEY VOLUNTEERED (in fact i VOLUNTEERED four years ago and i had a great time in the navy on deployment supporting boots on the ground in thier mission)and how recruiters are child predators . . .I’m tired of it. . you know what they are right get rid of recruiters I FULLY SUPPORT the united states military becoming COMPULSORY you turn eighteen serve your 4 or eight years then get on with your lifethen EVERY one can get a taste of what its like to live your life for your country. i also support teaching our children about citizenship and patriotism in our school teaching them about america’s past how it is AMAZING to be a United States Citzen and how they should be proud of the freedom they have no matter what it cost to give it to them.

      I’m so sick of people bashing on these brave women and men that sacrifice thier time and sometimes even thier live’s and thier families to protect these ungrateful hippie communists.

      i Propose the next at recruiting demostration the police arrest everyone there for treason because it is under us code: title 18 and give them a choice life in jail or serve four years a get look on the other side of the perspective.

      These people dont derserve their freedom and don’t deserve to live here.

    • George

      This is beginning to look just like the 60′s and early 70′s. A few whackos take over the country, while the majority sit in silence like a bunch of sheep!
      Aging hippies and liberal so called intellectuals are brainwashing our naive and rebellious youth.Under the guise of “patriotic”Americans who are trying to save our brave soldiers lives, they trash our flag, our country and threaten our freedom !They espouse communism,anarchy and cry 911 was a hoax ! When will it be enough ? When we will stand as one and defend the greatest country this world has ever seen ? Or do we once again let the liars, cowards and just plain nut jobs drag us down again.I am really sick of the mass media writing our history with liberal bias and people like Kerry,Fonda and a few others who should be in jail for treason, living large and then trashing the very people who defended their rights! We can’t afford a “Silent Majority” anymore ! WE need numbers in the streets to match theirs and more ! The world would then see us as a united, determined and strong country once again.That are not by a bunch of “Chicken Littles”.

    • Gail

      sappho I was there too. The only violence I witnessed were the punk kids trying to rile up our side. Trying to incite violence. The only actual violence I witnessed were the high school kids trying to run people down with there skate boards. One high schooler states on a video “I’ve been punched in the face 3 times today” accusing our side of punching her in the face. All I can say to that is, wow she heals fast, since there wasn’t one mark on her face. Or I guess I can say since there wasn’t any marks on her face that it was just more of your sides BS. I saw a group of high school kids trying to get a VN Vet, who uses a cane to walk by the way, riled up. The brave kid told the disabled Vet: I’d beat the sh!t out of you except I’m on probation and can’t get arrested. code stink is just plain wrong. Leave the recruiters alone, let them do their jobs. Which is keeping your country free.

    • RP Moscato

      I have had enough with these cowards,who think war will go away if th wars wherever an American Flag flies throughout the world are ended.
      I will not allow these Jerks, to cause the downfall of this country. Wake up you idiots!! Things will be alot different if men did not shave and women were forced to wear Burqua’s. Protest then and you will find youselves on the business end of a very sharp sword.

    • Rick

      The only thing liberals care about is pushing their far left agenda. If they ever came back to reality they would loose their far left funding. Most of these people they dug up under a rock somewhere.

    • SAC_PKAT

      When are these children going to realize that the military isn’t going to stop recruiting because of their childish antics, terrorists aren’t going to have a change of heart and stop murdering innocent civilians because people like Sappho are supporting people who are trying to murder innocent military recruiters, and concerned citizines aren’t going to fall in love with them because they hide behind the color pink?

      As for Melanie Morgan… what’s wrong with putting treasonous bastards in the gas chamber? Hanging used to work just fine but as a society we should progress to more the technical. How about dropping them from a B-52 at 40,000 feet?

    • CB

      What a sad waste of energy. Do these people have jobs? If they care so much about PEACE then why don’t they keep marching to their local shelters and volunteer centers. Or perhaps keep marching to New Orleans and put all that energy to good use! Build houses, feed the hungry, … or find an alternative oil ?
      They can say what they want, exercise their freedoms but not at the expense of others!
      What medication/drugs are these kids on??? Surely the military wouldn’t be interested in them anyway ; )

      Move Forward and I pray that our younger generations have more of a backbone!

    • WEW

      PEACE? Violence begets violence and hate begets hate!

    • stephanie

      I agree with others on here that articles like this are steps towards eliminating protesters!|What about all the soldiers who are protesting?Are some of these people fallen soldiers families?No excuse for violence,but I wouldn’t be suprised if some people aren’t PUT there to be violent!Staged!Why else AREN’T they named or being charged?|The whole government is shady,people are divided,this kind of violence obviously means that there are major problems!I was born in 1980,there has been war going on here my whole life!And I don’t think I am alone in wanting to be part of a generation that brings big change!I just hope this violence stops!PEACE–EVERYBODY!WE LOVE YOU!

    • Pam Littleton

      Stephanie, I feel sorry for you. You are too young to be this jaded. The entire government is not shady, and what, do you think that active duty people/veterans park their consitutional rights at the door when they serve? Some protest, and they have every right to do so. And this country has not known war until 1990 when WE THE PEOPLE were threatened by Saddam Hussein. Then we went back to our peaceful ways until Al Queda decided capitalism is evil, and murdered 3000 more of our citizens. Look deep inside, and ask yourself do you really want our country to go back to sleep? What if it’s your family who is next to die? You would feel the rage and pain of the families left behind of the 9/11 victims, a pain that will never completely go away. If you don’t stand for something, you stand for nothing. If you don’t speak up for someone, who will be around to speak up for you? Thoughts to ponder. You seem to be a critical thinker. That is so refreshing to see in someone not yet 30.

      I know your heart is in the right place, but these terrorists are going to escalate this until someone is really hurt or killed, and then Berkeley is going to explode, and nobody will be safe. When people get pushed against a wall, they fight back. I marvel at the calm professionalism the Marine Corps show. I don’t think I could be that patient with people who’s main goal is to exile me from my own country, and dictate how I should live my life. That is what happens in China, North Korea, and all the other dictatorships in the world. We are so blessed to live in a country where we can have this dissention and not fear retribution by our own government. That is something else to ponder on. You really believe we have a shadow government? If we had a true shadow government, those women in Code Pink would have disappeared into some prison for “re-education” a long time ago.

    • Earl Scheib

      WOW! I have not heard such hate speach in a long time until I checked out MAF! It’s easy to hate someone when you place a label on their head and assume their beliefs (i.e. liberals are snooty intellectual-type, cowards who think they know everything). Like Stephanie said, what about our liberal troops? Do their opinions not matter?

      My, what a broad brush we paint with!

      People: let’s try to have discussions rather than just hating someone for whatever label you put on them. It’s all about perception, and no one has the same perception on every issue as you.

      PEACE!

    • Earl Scheib

      I had never seen this country so unified as it was after 9/11. Now what has happened? We are definitely not the UNITED States of America as it stands now. This country is the most divided that we have ever been in my 30+ years. It is sad to me that we hate people we don’t even know because their political label does not match our own.

      The terrorists have already won when we fight amongst ourselves.

      I am a retired Army officer and have no problem with legitimate war protests. However, the criminal acts and vile threats of the left simply expose these idiots for what they are – spoiled and illegitimate losers. These loons lack the knowledge and will to achieve anything meaningful in their lives, or to positively influence others.

      In the radicals liberal utopian mind only the United States is held responsible for absolute perfection of action and outcomes. Capitalism, war, terrorism, the U.N., taxes, distribution of wealth, the environment, energy policy, you name it, nothing but U.S. perfection is tolerated, and no progress short of perfection is acknowledged. To them conservatives and the U.S. as a whole have it all wrong. The more problems, the more setbacks or perceived defeats liberals can attribute to the U.S., or especially conservatives, the better.

      To save our nation, and perhaps our misguided world partners, we must dismiss those that refuse to define victory in a legitimate determined manner. Conservatives and moderate liberals must out-speak, and out-vote the liberals and elites in our government, universities, and the minority of leftists that wouldn’t know the meaning of victory if they had either the power of our Congress, the Senate, the Presidency, or all combined to do so.

      Be concerned and vigilant against the ignorant that use illegitimate means to protest. Their idea of victory is our defeat as a nation.

    • Dan

      What is wrong with these people? They sound more like communists rather than Americans. It is time to have the Recruters armed so when there is an attack they can defend themselves and their office. Start with a couple less then lethal rounds (rubber balls, bean bags) and then if it becomes a matter of life and death then shoot the criminal. After all the recruters are trained they need to be allowed to use it with out fear of getting in trouble for it.

      It is horrible that so called Americans are attacking our own just for doing their job. If they don’t like it, they don’t have to enlist. They sure don’t need to become violent and be terrorists against their own country.

      Semper FI
      God Bless America.

    • Wade Meyer

      God has blessed Melanie Morgan with the freedom to pursue righteous indignation against evil. But the ant-American protestors eyes are blind to that fact. I see their faces in the press they are proud and haughty, arrogant and deceitful. When they die they will have to answer to the Creator for their many many sins. Anarchy is truly their only goal.

    • Brian Chandler

      The “Anti-War” movement with these violent attacks has shown it’s true face.the vast majority of these so-called activists are old-hippies(Mike Farrell and Medea”Medusa”Benjimin)attempting to re-live their glory days,as well as members of anti-American and leftist anti-simite groups(A.N.S.W.E.R for example).When I encounter these people,I ask,”If America is so brutal,repressive and imperialist,why do you still live here?”or “Do you understand that if we don’t fight the terrorists there we will be fighting them here?”.Normaly I only get insults in response.
      As far as the young people,many of them come from college campuses where the faculty is made oup of 1960′s era reilecs,or high schools with simmilar staffs. We need to back up our troops,they are what keep us free,Thank you Melaine Morgan and MAF
      And God Bless our troops.

    • Old 82nd Trooper

      I loved Nicholson’s line from the movie “A Few Good Men”. He said “How dare you live safe under the very blanket of freedom that I provide, then question the method in which I provide it!”. These idiots who love their 2nd amendment rights should do some research as to why they have those rights. We have an all VOLUNTEER force…..the best in the world! LEAVE THEM ALONE!!

    • Old 82nd Trooper

      Previous comment should have read “1st amendment rights”.

    • John Nelson

      As long as our schools, colleges and mainsteam media continue to foster hatred against the military, more and more will come to the point where their joy comes from hating.

      God bless those that are willing to risk life and limb for the freedom that causes most of us to learn to love.

    • Matt

      OK all i want to say is if you think that by excluding the recruters from schools and cities wil stop the military. You should be happy you have the ability to say that. We are one of the few countries that have an ALL volenteer military. There are countries you can move to that have conscription, in case you hippies don’t know what that is, you don’t have a choice, and the only option is the rich parents can get thier son’s in the police, who are in some cases in more danger than thier military. So before you start crying, A. are your children going to stand up for your rights. B. if not, be happy that we have yet to start forcing males to serve.

    • Brian

      Stephanie who cries “I have lived through war my whole life” as if she’s been personally involved in war. You don’t even have a clue what it’s like to be in a war or in state under war so stop with the tears. You can thank our military for that by the way. Without them, you might actually have something to cry about.

    • Tim

      I am one of the proud AMERICANS that have served. I was in the Air Force for 22 years and do miss it. I get so upset when I hear of these folks (young and old) that feel the military is to blame for the world’s troubles, that the US Government started this latest clash. My comments to anyone that says these kinds of things get asked one question, What have you ever done that gives you the right to live in the country that I’ve been defending? Just because you were born here doesn’t make you an American. It goes much deeper. Yes, our Freedoms are what this country is about. But, what about those folks (men and women) that have sacrificed everything to ensure those freedoms stay. I’m talking about the Revolutionaries in the 1700′s when we were gaing our Freedom from England. Or, in the 1800′s when this country was split north and south. How about during the early part of the 20th century when Germany tried taking over. Than again, less than 25 years later, they, and some others tried. And, we have had the threat of losing all our freedoms to the communists, at least until they figured out they couldn’t win. Now we have these religious zealots trying to take our freedoms. Here’s a couple of thoughts for all those people that think the US Military should go away by not recruiting. 1, Who will you call when there’s a natural disaster and you don’t take responsibility for living where the flood/ earthquake/ hurricane/ whatever hits. 2, Who will be keeping our buildings, monuments, symbols standing when the Taliban/ AlQueda/ whoever walks down Main St. USA and decides they don’t like the Statue of Liberty? I feel that military service, or at least serving your country, is the responsibility of each and every American. It gives you the right to live here and exercise your rights.

      5 years – and all for nothing. You say you believe in freedom of speech and you attack the recruiter office protesters for limiting the freedom of speech of the Marines. And then disable comments on their stupid video b/c they cant take the heat. F—ing hypocrites! Liars, just like Bush and the other warmongers. Move America Forward is so right!! Our troops do deserve better. Much better! They need to be brought home instead of being senselessly slaughtered; instead of more and more being thrown willy nilly into the meatgrinder by right wing idiots whose thirst for blood makes them blind to the fact that there is no political solution happening or possible in this Muslim civil war. Not now, not ever. Support the Troops – Bring Them Home Now! End the senseless Slaughter. Move America Forward says it’s tracing the far left’s efforts to sabotage our troops and destabalize the U.S. Government. What has sabotaged our troops? — Bush’s failed war policies. What has destabilized the US Government — the US ‘credit crunch’, no recovery in sight, the multi-trillion dollar war in Iraq, and the US dollar that has plummeted to an all-time low. You are all like some screaming wounded monster, not long for this political world. You are history , good riddance to you all. BRING THE TROOPS HOME NOW. END THE SENSELESS SLAUGHTER.

      In the last 50 years, liberals(LIKE OBAMA) have sided with every enemy that America has had.

      Viet Cong troops were loved by Hanoi Jane and Hanoi John and you liberals supported the communist troops over those of us that were drafted and had to go over there

      Communist USSR – Stalin was called “Uncle Joe” by Liberals (commie loving scumbags) while he exterminated close to 25 million people.

      Cuba – Fidel a folk hero loved by liberals everywhere

      Venezuela – Chevez, another communist dictator revered and loved by liberals

      Terrorist Nations and terrorist groups (they’re peaceful people who hate women / anyone who’s not in their particular sect / behead people / blow themselves up as well as children

      2. Show their complete hatred of any thing patriotic and Christian

      3. Teach children that perverts are living an alternate and wholesome lifestyle.

      4. Believe that murderers and other deviates are just mis-understood people that shouldn’t be in prison. “If only we could have a talk with them and point out how their behavior disappoints us”….. this also works with terrorists, maybe they just need a timeout!

      5. Liberal support of illegal scumbags causing crime, getting free medical care, subsidized housing and food, free schooling all paid for by us taxpayers.

      6. Demanding and passing laws that give criminals more rights than victims.

      7. Yesterday one of you liberals on here posted saying you were looking for a site that was something like “f&^k the troops” and saying that they wanted to find the site and say how much they supported them. Proving again that you phony liberals don’t really “Support Our Troops” its just another pack of PC lies covering up your hatred of this country.

      And many more ways…. They want to change America to the “new communism” as some of you liberals have told me (being anonymous here allows you liberals to state what your goals actually are).

      Go to this site dedicated to the communist party: http://www.cpusa.org and see that they have recommended every liberal democrat candidate that has run for the presidency during the last 4 or 5 elections and probably more. Read the communist stated goals, compare them to the goals set by the democrats….. suprise! they’re the same. UNLIKE LIBERALS WHO LOOK AT THIS AS A PLUS…..
      I DON’T VOTE FOR CANDIDATES THAT ARE RECOMMENDED BY COMMUNISTS.

    • Democrat/Al Qaeda “Hacker Partnership” Strikes US Targets

      Well well well. It looks like the Democrat/Al Qaeda partnership in computer hackery has struck again!

      News reports are coming forward that hackers (Al Qaeda hackers, funded by the Democrats most likely) have hacked into top US government research labs, including Oak Ridge National Lab.

      How did these hackers gain the experience necessary to hack into these facilities? Well the answer may shock you.

      It now appears clear that they used my site as a “test run” for their homosexual hacking agenda!

      Back in 2005, LiberalsMustDie was hacked by this same group of Democrat backed Al Qaeda hackers.

      They used their access to do the worst possible thing: POSTING GAY PORN!!

      Al Qaeda and the Democrats don’t agree on everything, like Democrats think God is fake (so they worship satan) and Al Qaeda thing God is called “Allah” and wears a turbin or something, I don’t know, it’s so crazy.

      But what they both agree on is the homosexual terrorists democrtic agenda. These individuals are called HomoTerroroCrats and they are everywhere, from California to Iran (but not in “Red America”, just the blue states).

      We need to stop these evil doers!! First step is to defeat their leader: Barack Hussein Obama!

      Second, we need to elect Republicans to every seat in every office!!! DO IT NOW!!

    • Pessimism of the Democratic Party <– The Losers Party!

      Pessimism and flip flopping seem to be a common theme in the Democratic Party; but what else is new? One minute they support the war, then they are against the war…and then they were never supportive of going to war blah blah blah. Same story with most if not all the democrats on Capitol Hill. First there is Murtha who was originally against the surge in Iraq now claims that it is working. Then, late last week, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid who has been documented as saying “This was is lost”, has now changed his position claiming there is significant progress being made in Iraq.

      Not only do they have a negative outlook on everything from the war in Iraq, the economy, healthcare, illegal immigration and everything in between; it’s almost as if they want us to fail across the board.

      But then again, with an expression like that, how can anyone be optimistic about anything?

      Berkley hasn’t changed it is still out of touch with reality! The pressure must be kept on and the local as well as State officals who must be held to account for their misconduct and abuse of offical powers. On a personal note I wish I were at Berkley when the local police just watched the Pinko thugs attack pro american demonstrators! They could have watched my Barry Bonds routine. Sounds radical to say such a thing ? In the words of President Teddy Roosevelt , SPEAK SOFTLY BUT CARRY A BIG STICK!

      OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE

      Military supporters all over the country are now calling for a full-scale boycott of the new “Speed Racer” film, distributed by Warner Bros. Entertainment and starring Susan Sarandon.

      Why the boycott?

      Because Sarandon is now connected with extreme-leftist organization Code Pink and intends to protest with them outside the White House on May 13 and 14.

      Sarandon’s anti-war stance has been clear in the past but by connecting herself with Code Pink, she’s now making it known that she has NO regard for our military soldiers. Code Pink wears the number of Iraq dead as a badge on their sleeves, yet they have never made any donations to organizations that serve to offer support to our military men and women. They did, however, give over $600,000 worth of aid and comfort to the people of Fallujah, Iraq, one of the most highly concentrated terrorist areas in that country.

      If you care about our troops, if you support our men and women in uniform, don’t put one dime in the pockets of those who support terrorism. Terrorist acts are taking place in the United States as well, by organizations vandalizing military recruitment centers, harassing citizens, and blocking entrance and exit to businesses.

      “Speed Racer” is due for release on May 9, 2008. Do not see this film, in theaters or on video release. Show your support for our U.S. soldiers!

      There is no such thing as absolute freedom and peaceful protests should be tolerated, but the anti-american liberals that valdalize government recruiting offices should be prosecuted as common criminals. And freedom of speech against our military only has to be tolerated to a reasonable extent. Vile anti-military speech could be construed as hate speech, and hopefully some savvy lawyer will pick up on that and help some citizen or citizens bring suit against some of the anti-american liberals that pollute and poison our country. Yes I agree that there is no democracy without dissent, but too much dissent is called anarchy. Americans are programmed to place celeberties on a pedestal when the real heroes are the brave men and women in uniform, who deserve our sincere respect and support. Hell, half of those liberal celeberties in hollywood are uneducated, catatonic morons, who do not have a clue. Here’s my advice, the next time you see a service man or woman out at a local restaurant, offer to pay for his/her meal or better yet take one to lunch and say thank you for your service.

      Liberals scream about 1st Amendment rights and then are the first people to want to silence anyone who has a different opinion. Their idea of protesting, on College campuses and other speaking venues, is to shout down or storm stages to in order deny others of their right to free speech. It is so sad that college kids today are being taught that acting like that is patriotic. They pride themselves in shutting down the opposite point of view and as the acts get louder and more disruptive, there are no consequences for their actions. The elected officials who are on the left and are in solidarity with these groups should be the ones calling for them to be civil, but they don’t. The acts of the protesters are not prosecuted like they should. In college they are allowed to behave badly, not encouraged to debate their points and let others say what they believe. In NY they even get paid after threatening to sue the city because our court systems are also taken over by the left and sympathize with the activists. When people talk about the wrong direction the country is taking, it the leftist direction that we see happening in our courts, govt and city streets. If the anti-war (well meaning ones) would open their eyes, they would see that it is the Communist, Socialist and Anarchists that fund and participate in most of the anti-war protests.

      As a retired soldier I was appalled, sickened and angered by what happened in Berkeley CA and just as much so at the vile atrocities that took and continue to be taken at other places in our homeland concerning our military. I am sickened as much,seeing what our President and Commander in Chief must endure daily from these and other kinds of “Liberal” factions.

      I don’t believe it at all unusual to see these types of traitorous activities eminating from a place like Berkeley. Harkening back to my Korean and RVN days, they were noted for their “great” support of our troops… nothing’s changed. Their police force and city leaders are complicit through their actual encouragement of and failure to stop these nuts as well.

      At my advanced years,aside from supporting our troops and entities that do the same, I can’t do a hell of a lot. But, when the “demonstrations” occured, I notified the City Clerk of Berkeley that I owned a business and was reviewing a list of my suppliers; that if we found any based in their pathetic city, their account would be immediately terminated. Reasoning says that any organization who would locate in such a vast waste of good U.S. soil didn’t deserve and would not benefit from my business. My understanding is that other companies did the same. Hope it had some impact.

      Frankly, I invite, no, I encourage the Code Pink group and any others like them to attempt to demonstrate at my office, or make their way through my doors.

      When people get angry about Bush’s campaign for sending troops into way, that creates war here at home. A diplomatic approach would be to study the matter and understand that this is just a political ploy to revolutionize certain economic factions.

    • David Wetzel

      I am very much for the troops (served in the Army from 1971-79), however I am very much against “Iraqnam” as I have termed it. George Bush’s little invasion was and is a huge waste of lives and $$$. As anybody with a brain in their heads knows Iraq never attacked the United States and it never would have. Of course these men and women in the services today are all heroes as I was when I had the uniform on. Of course when I was in the service and in uniform I was on a couple occasions spit on by young women with babies in their arms. I was seen as a baby killer and monster. Of course both of these terms about me were untrue. I was and still am very proud of my service to my country. Times haved changed and that is very good. In closing the bottom line for me is I can support the troops, however I can disagree with the way they are being used by our government in country (Iraq).

      I’m not here to condemn anyone over this issue. Anyone with a ounce of conviction would concurr. Heavy hearted conviction should fall on anyone opposing military recruitment. Troop levels need to be maintained to ensure a strong fighting force when conflicts occur. But, don’t take this as a mandate, just as my pledge to the strong defense our country has always been known for.
