This is why the motto is “Semper Fidelis”

Brought to you by the obnoxious buffoon who thought a foreign country owed her criminal ass right of entry.

Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin, who can turn the air blue when shouting chants against American Marines called out for the Marines in front of Marine Recruiting offices in Berkeley yesterday.

…“While we were at the protest in Berkeley from 12 to 4 p.m., a white Volvo drove by and a man spat upon CodePink,” Kelley wrote in an email to MAF’s Melanie Morgan.  “They chased him down the street and got into a verbal altercation.  The police were NOWHERE in sight.

“That’s not the best part, ready for this?

“Medea Benjamin yelled and I quote “Marines!” She actually yelled for our help because this man had stepped out of his car.  I even asked her if she was yelling Police and she told me, “I said Marines” then put her arm around my friend Allen (the Marine Vet).  Ironic?”

— Judi McLeod, “When in danger, call for the US Marines.  That’s what CodePink’s Medea Benjamin did“.  Canada Free Press, February 28th, 2008.

Yes, you too can be a hilarious hypocrite in the kabuki theatre of anti-war activism.  This is more or less the textbook example of the adage “There are no atheists in foxholes”.  You want to prevent people from joining the Marine Corps, but at the same time—when it looks like you might have your own ass handed to you—you call on… the Marines.  With a fairly high degree of confidence that they are going to overlook all of your juvenile shenanigans and come bail you out anyway.

Shine on you crazy effin’ pink diamond.  And Semper Fi to longsuffering Bay-area Marines.

    Fair enough but just to be clear, if I fear getting my ass kicked in a crowd, I am shouting “AIRBORNE” and will explain later. And being in the service of whatever level does impart duty over one’s personal opinion. If Mussolini can seek absolution at the end, surely an activist can seek assistance from the mob.
