The United States Marine recruiting office in Berkeley, California attacked!
Michelle Malkin sounds the alarm.
Code Pink defaces Berkeley military recruitment office; Update: Attacks will continue, support needed
“Supporting the troops,” moonbat-style.
Let's get busy people!
Thank goodness you are 'on- the -job' in recognizing and reporting the insane actions of the moonbat crowd, the Code Stinko people who defaced and vandalized the Marine Recruiting Center in Berkeley.
You have sounded the alarm, I will be responding immediately. I am posting your Lead Story on my website(s), with a call to action for the Bay Area supporters of our military men and women who are sacrificing every single day for our country.
I'm going to alert the KSFO audience on Monday when I return to the airwaves and read the deeply moving letter of response from Captain Richard Lund who is a fine example of the caliber of troops we have guarding our backs in this country and in Iraq.
After this disgusting attack at the Marine office in Shattuck Square, Captain Lund issued an open letter to the Berkely City Council. This quote from your website touched me deeply.
“Recruiters are Traitors.” Please explain this one. How exactly am I a traitor? Was I a traitor when I joined the Marine Corps all those years ago? Is every Marine, therefore, a traitor? Was I a traitor during my two stints in Iraq? Was I a traitor when I was delivering humanitarian aid to the victims of the tsunami in Sumatra? Or do you only consider me a traitor while I am on this job?
Um, Captain Lund, the anti-war lunatics DO consider you a traitor. The rest of the world does not.
I am going to petition the City Council to enforce rules and regulation regarding criminal trespass and vandalism.
I am going to go there myself, personally, to draw attention to this hateful action by a fringe group who has absolutely NO moral authority --whose members include Susan (Medea) Benjamin, who engaged in anarchy at the WTO in Seattle, in between organizing her Code Pink Pepto-Bismal crowd who like to get naked for peace.
I do not hold out much hope from the Berkeley City Council. It is comprised of left-over Hippies from the Sixties who still think it's the Summer of Love.
However, Mayor Tom Bates, has a distinctly different view of free speech that our military has fought valiantly for --he was convicted of stealing one thousand copies of the a conservative student-run newspapaer.
According to the Stanford Daily newspaper...
"Berkeley Mayor Tom Bates has decided to plead guilty for the theft and subsequent disposal of 1,000 copies of the Nov. 4 issue of the Daily Californian, which contained an endorsement of his opponent, Shirley Dean. A month after the incident, Bates is developing legislation to prevent this type of theft from reoccurring.
Regardless of the power structure in Berkeley, we will NOT let this insult to our troops remain unanswered. Not now. Not ever.
