The Left Reaches for a New Low
This is almost a year old, but I just came across it. Members of the left wing moonbat group "Code Pink" targeted the children of US soldiers going to a White House Halloween event. On their website they bragged, "We protested wars against Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran. We gave the kids a dramatic show of ghouls and vampires sucking Americans blood to feed their wars".
They dressed as 'zombie soldiers killed in combat', and 'ghosts of war victims' while parading in along the kids waiting in line. A report by Reuters stated "One protester dresses as a Wicked Witch was saying things like, "More pretties to die in my war!"
Dressed as dead soldiers. Staging a protest in front of kids. Whose parents are serving in the military. On Halloween.
Code Pink, founded by top Obama campaign fundraiser Jodie Evans, was a major supporter of the Obama campaign and was a founding member of the Obama campaign finance team. Her name appeared on the White House visitors log twice in June 2009 just days after visiting Gaza, where she hand delivered a letter to President Obama from HAMAS. Code Pink was of the many "grassroots" organizations that supported Hope and Change. In 2004 Code Pink was also one of the groups that donated $600,000 to the families of those Iraqis killed fighting against US Marines in the bloody battle for Fallujah. She has also met with the Taliban, who she praised as bringing peace and justice to Afghanistan while the US had failed.
Shortly after Halloween protest, Jodie Evans was leading protests in Egypt and Gaza with Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dorhn, where they contributed "tens of thousands of dollars" to a HAMAS "relief organization". She also traveled to Iran as a personal guest of Iranian President Ahmadinejad.
The Obama campaign had received $33,000 in illegal donations from Gaza. The campaign had originally reported to the FEC that those donation came from Georgia, and returned the funds after the truth became public.
