Code Pink's Medea Benjamin Interrupts Obama's Speech With Poignant Questions; Everyone Else Silently Awaits More of Obama's Lies

Quite an illustration. One person in the crowd shows the ability to think critically, and respond appropriately to a sociopath at a podium.

The rest of the crowd sits silenty; sheepishly awaiting their Minister of Truth's speech to resume.

Whatever your opinion of Code Pink, you must applaud Medea Benjamin's willingness to challenge the Emperor, especially on the foreign policy issues she poignantly highlights here. Powerful.

I watched the speech on the tv while it was happening

not knowing who she was. My first thoughts were: she is agreeing with Obama so why is she talking? Then, when he responded saying "I'm going off script here" I thought No, you're not because you actually knew what to say. Without a teleprompter, you stumble and blubber. Then Obama applauded her right to freedom of speech. I knew that it had been a setup because he doesn't give a damn about our freedom to speak. Then, after the reporters were all gushing about a "heckler" making him look like a hero.

Now, I know it was Code Pink. If Code Pink = Obama then, I don't believe a word they say.

alex jones kicked code pink off his show...

for swearing four or five years ago i believe. He just said 'let them go' and they were cut off.

9-11 was a panda job.

...

I would like to see what came after this..

Controlled Opposition

Everyone knows who MB is, and when she goes to these events, they KNOW who she is and she has permission to do what she does.. control the opposition.

I don't know it.

Links, please.

Oh bother, when we can't tell

S shill from a loud truth, then we are in for a rude day.
She is not only a friend of Barraks personally, but she is a policy adviser for him as well.

JUST as the question that opened up the IRS scandal was concocted by the IRS, so was this interruption concocted by the Administration.

For what purpose? To show the fictitious Leftist anti-war, left leaning Socialist bots, and tree hugging owl worshipers that they are being listened too, that they have a voice. Yea, just like WE have a voice, LOL until it hurts.
Where has " Code Stink " been these last FIVE years at war protests.......crickets.
They don't hate war, they hate Republican war.
Code Stink, is just another manipulative part of the overall Global agenda to achieve socialism for the masses and POWER and complete CONTROL for the Elite, and should be flushed ASAP.

No it is entirerly TRUE

I have met medea many times in my deacdes of antiwar support and she is exactly what the poster above says. This area went from 26 registered peace groups to ONE. Code Pink.. and why.. HOW DARE ANYONE TRY TO START SOMETHING WITHOUT HER STAMP.

Then go join her

If you love the socialist so much.
You are aware, I hope that they are both , Medea and Obama members of the " democratic socialists of America ", right?
Obama got his pledge from Joel Rodgers when he got the endorsement of the " New Party " in Chicago during his first Senate run.
Medea's BIO clearly shows her anti-Republic view points and memberships.

Do you think it's LOGICAL to believe a person with Medea's profile just happen to " SNEAK " past six layers of intense scrutiny to infiltrate a presser as a member of the press ? If you Realy think that's likely, boy do I have a bridge you need to buy right away !

Sell him a boat, so he can float on his river of BS.

I'm frequently out of favor

For simply speaking the truth, even those truth's that I don't like myself.

But I'm not going to stop doing it, and I suspect neither are you.

Thanks Grang.

I took it as a VERY good sign...

that she wasn't, actually, booed down.

In the past, these criminals like brzezenski and obombya (barry sortero) have blind minions supporting their agenda ready to pounce on any serious question to their authority.

I did not hear "much" of that yesterday. Why? The lady raised very serious concerns. Hunger strikes in the 100th day at guantanamo? Hard to heckle that down.

More issues to be raised in the future, I am sure. obombya WILL be held accountable. His place in history is secure beside stalin and hitler and he has to make RADICAL changes to avoid that now.

I don't think he will do it.

And, for the record, if he doesn't think I am right then tell him to ask what the country feels about lyndon johnson and BOTH bushes. No matter how "they" try to spin history TENS of MILLIONS of Americans hate them for what they did to destroy this country and that number will only grow.

I love Medea Benjamin.

The big difference between the true 'left' and libertarians is their complete ignorance of economics. If they opened their own business or even got a management job with profit making company I believe they would transform into a libertarian quite quickly.

So True

Reading "Economics In One Lesson" by Henry Hazlitt turned me from ultra-liberal to libertarian in a split second.

What an idiot I was. The greatest book ever written.

Last time I saw her

I told her she's a fraud to her face. I hate what she did to the peace movement. She's a fraud.

I thought she was the last one standing?!

Is she not the last 'Progressive' still crying out about the wars? The rest are okay with the wars because they got their man, Obomba, because they re-labled the wars as 'conflicts', and the war's motives are now 'humanitarian' instead of resource/banking scam.

When you eliminate the competition

why should being the last one standing be appluded by those who appreciate competition? Why not have 100's of antiwar and pro-peace groups? Why just hers?

Why are you upset that she is the only one

who hasn't given in? I would prefer more peace groups. But one brave lady on the so-called left is better than no ladies on the so-called left hollering for peace, no?

Upset? Maybe I don't understand "Upset"

I sit here and think.. "Upset". upset? Am I upset? Presently I have much to be upset about.. the murders of my parents.. that's upsetting.. and then it occured to me.. the murder of pro-peace groups and antiwar groups.. should that make me upset? I guess it does. Yes, I am upset because locally, we had 26 registered peace groups.. registered because they were in the parades, occupying streets and highways.. waving peace signs and American flags.. group after group, except Women in Black, who occupied the "town square" and stood silently for hours.

When I came to support Ron Paul in 07, I recall going to peace groups. Most if them had no clue who Ron Paul was, and the organizers who did, fought me that Ron Paul was a Republican. We had huge groups of people, wearing tie dyes, and street clothes.. peace signs were on roof tops in Christmas lights, peace signs in windows, peace signs on yard signs..

One day when I was working at the museum a man came in, and he looked sick. I asked him if he was ok. He freaked out, "I can't take it here, I've got to get out of this place, all these peace signs, all these people everywhere I go waving peace signs.."

Our parades were so much fun, with all these groups.. I look back and think, Wow.. it was really something back then.. the icing on the cake was, boobs not bombs, and everyone would wait for the women to pull their shirts off for PEACE. I guess I miss seeing the coloful peace signs and friendly people standing in groups along the highway waving their flags..

And we had organizations present movies and rally in town hall. I met many big names in the peace movement who came as guests, and they all would swoon to be here.. LOVING it.. the town hall would be packed, standing room only, and we would give big donations for cookies and coffee, and it pulled us together as a community, so I guess I miss that too.

Medea came here many times, and of ALL the groups, hers was the least impressive to me. Her group was all about Medea. Now let's all sit here and listen to Medea.. ok.. Medea did this.. applause.. medea did that applause, medea said this applause.. medea said this applause.. go to stand up and her agents would give you dirty looks, like how dare you get up to leave and disturb Medea."

I notived her group became smaller over the years, more militant, and I guess some of these peace groups were started because Medea was no fun, wasn't really getting our area together,, we were so way past her when it came to covering our area in the name of peace.

Each time she showed, the audience got smaller. I went to promote Ron Paul. Then Medea stopped showing up. Veterans for Peace was a shell.. but hey hey hey.. look at medea distrupting another conference.. blah blah blah, medea.

You like her.. great. I don't and now you know why. As for links.. I'm still working on the articles you gave me, which I'm grateful, but the first one is impossible to fact check.. and I told you why. So ((((((ducky)))))) Medea is your style, she's not mine. I'm not impressed or grateful for what she does. She's a waste of my time at this point, and I'm not going to respond or promote her.. so I'm done with this thread. Peace be with you.

Lets see if I can get this straight...

She takes a bold step and yells out IN PERSON to obombya that he is illegally detaining prisoners (a la Nazis, Stalinists, Maoists) to the point that they are in their 100th day of hunger strikes (with virtually NO mention in the main stream media).

You support romnie in the last election due to some "pact" and you attend karl rove "same 'ol crap" seminars so as to kick the proverbial "can" down the road for 8 more years???!!!

The fraud is evident to me and its NOT MB! The fraud is YOU!

I just wanted to make sure I was clear on that.

Let them have their obombya, I, and the rest of us that LET obombya get reelected, said.

Lets get this party started. We are tired of this death by one thousand cuts that you willfully perpetuate.

I welcome MB and her stand yesterday. You cloud the issues with distractions. Your history is set in stone. MB seems to be rewriting hers.

So you mock those who BOLDLY...

stand UP to obombya and call them that do the "controlled opposition" and fools?

I fail to see your logic (as usual) because it sounds a bit orweillian, wouldn't you say?

Your case in point: Years and

Your case in point: Years and years ago, I thought I was a liberal, mainly because of my strong anti-war sentiments.

Then, as a result of hearing Ron Paul speak incisive truths, I took up and learned about Austrian economics.

Never looked back.

careful

In 2000, Benjamin ran for the United States Senate on the Green Party ticket from California, basing her campaign on such issues as a living wage, education, and universal healthcare. Since then she has remained active in the Green Party and has also supported efforts by the Progressive Democrats of America.
