You know, it’s funny: liberals will deliberately lie and claim that Rush Limbaugh referred to anti-war soldiers as “phony soldiers,” just so that they can pretend to be outraged on behalf of the troops.
But, when a liberal group like Code Pink actually says far worse things about the troops than the Left even claimed Limbaugh said, you won’t find 1/50 as many liberals speaking out against them.
The U.S. Marine Corps recruiting station in Berkeley, Calif., has become a battleground for protesters. A “pro-troop” organization rally on Wednesday was aimed at countering anti-war protesters who have been demonstrating for the last three weeks.
Code Pink, a leftist anti-war group, began protesting the nine-month-old recruitment center on Sept. 26. The group posted signs saying “recruiters are traitors” and “recruiters lie, children die.”
The group also sent a message to their supporters saying: “The Marines have landed in Berkeley! We are shocked and infuriated they have opened a despicable Officer Recruiting Station just blocks from Berkeley High School, UCB and Berkeley City college. We are determined to SHUT DOWN this recruiting station and we need your help! Tell the Marines NO Military Predators in our town!!! Protect our vulnerable youth!”
Capt. Richard Lund, who runs the recruitment stations, responded to Code Pink with an open letter published in the Berkeley Daily Planet, in which he stated: “While the protest that you staged in front of my office on Wednesday, Sept. 26, was an exercise of your constitutional rights, the messages that you left behind were insulting, untrue and ultimately misdirected.”
The simply reality is this: you cannot credibly claim to support the troops and support a group like Code Pink. It’s either one or the other. So, which group do you support, libs?
