Berzerkly, Code Fink, and the Marines

Code Fink protesters can’t even spell “assassination” correctly!

TUESDAY 2-12-08…. Tonight is the night the Berkeley city council will try to redeem itself. That city, with the nickname “Berzerkly” has certainly earned it over the years, but it’s latest insanity has come close to hitting the city in the pocketbook where it hurts.

Last week, the city council voted to oust Marine Corps recruiters from their downtown office, saying the marines were “uninvited and unwelcome intruders.” At the same time, the council voted to give the radical protest group Code Pink, space outside the recruiting office and urged them to “impede, passively or actively” the work of marine corps recruiters.

When word of the action filtered out to the mainstream press, the fecal matter hit the fan! Six Republican senators came up with a plan to hit the city where it hurts…..by yanking 2.3 million dollars in federal funding. The money would be stripped from the Berkeley’s school lunch program, UC Berkeley, and ferry service, and given to the Marines instead. One of the senators said “Patriotic American taxpayers won’t sit quietly by while Berkeley insults our brave marines.”

The bill, titled the Semper Fi Act of 2008 was introduced by Senators James Inhofe, Jim DeMint, Saxby Chambliss, Tom Coburn, John Cornyn, and David Vitter. U.S. Congressman John Campbell of California is introducing a companion bill in the House of Representatives. Democrat Senator Barbara Boxer and Democrat Congresswoman Barbara Lee say they plan to fight the Republican bill.

Council member Dona Spring says she’s not backing down from her earlier position that the marines should get outta’ town. She said “I’m going to try to work to amend this resolution to make sure we’re expressing our full opposition to the military policies and that we do not feel it’s appropriate for any military recruiting to be done in Berkeley. The message to the Marines should be ‘you need to go.’ and I’m not backing down.”

I have a suggestion: Invite the Taliban and other Islamic terrorists to move in, and take the marines’ place. After they’ve put all women in burkas, and cut off the heads of any males who object, see if you can convince the marines to come back.

    The woman who started this organization is the mother of a fallen Marine and she is one spunky lady.
    She welcomes any and all contributions for her mission to counter nuts like Code “Fink” & the Berzerkley city council. She reported yesterday that at least three other cities have threatened the same action and she vows to protest them as well should they make good on their threats.
