Terrorist-Coddling Obama Bundler Brags About Meeting Ahmadinejad

As they fire up more centrifuges and continue to refine the rocket motors for their ICBMS, the Iranians hope that these useful idiots represent change they can believe in:

Calling it a "major step forward" in relations between Iran and the United States, leading activists Medea Benjamin and Jodie Evans of CODEPINK Women for Peace along with more than 150 other U.S. peace group representatives met Wednesday afternoon with Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad here following his appearance at the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday.


"U.S. government officials are quick to stir up hostilities with Iran, but the American people are tired of war," said Benjamin, co-founder of the nonpartisan women's peace group CODEPINK. "The peace movement represents the sentiment of the majority of Americans who want our two countries to find ways to work together and improve relations. We are modeling the behavior we want to see our government adopt."

As Hot Air notes, Evans is a major bundler for Barack Obama, pledged to raising over $600,000 for the freshman Senator, and here she is, trying to make nice with a regime that practices Holocaust denial, that publicly threatens the state of Israel with destruction on a regular basis, and that is working on nuclear weapons to carry out that threat.

Barack Obama has a close partnership with a domestic terrorist who's group bombed government buildings, fire-bombed a judge's family at home, and murdered law enforcement officers during a bank robbery. Obama and the terrorist used that relationship to abuse education grants and launder $150 million to radical groups to indoctrinate school children and their parents.

Now Obama gladly takes more than a half-million dollars collected from the founder of a group that wants us to lose in Iraq and Afghanistan, even as she idolizes the worst state sponsor of terrorism in modern history.

Who's side is Barack Obama on?

Bemjamin and her lesbian cohorts do not speak for me.

Let's be careful to not make this a lesbian issue. Lesbians are cool.

Death to America isn't cool, and seems to be precicely what they want.

Why is it that people or groups who say they are against war and violence, are the very ones who protest using extreme and violent methods? As was seen during the republican convention, citizens and law enforcment were assaulted and put in danger. Why do they parade around, all pious acting, as though they are so concerned for the safety and well being of all, but they have no problem killing an unborn child that would survive outside the womb? Why is it they will meet with a world leader that held American hostages and tortured them, but will assault and denegrade their own leaders who they disagree with? Why is they will cry out when a animal is abused, but do nothing as young childern are abused everyday? Questions I have alway pondered? It's all very hypocritical to me.

Dam# good post,dead on,and I am absolutely certain that Obama will never be asked these questions by the super intelligent and vigilant press that have their lips pressed so firmly to his a$$.

By the way,did you hear the news flash that Sarah Palin bought a tanning bed?

I think it's that lack of empathy mentioned in another thread, Suzanne. Leftists, for whatever reason, fail to see their opponents as human beings, let alone intelligent people with integrity who hold different opinions. Since they have established to their own satisfaction that we are evil, they are under no obligation at all to respect us.

Then there's that "enemy of my enemy is my friend" thing. Since warm cuddly folks like Chavez and Ahmadinajad openly despise Bush, whome they have already cast as the world's greatest villain, then they must ipso facto be allies.

Or it might just be that Bolshevik extremisim coming to the surface. Code Pink is heir to Dzerzhinsky and Beria and Stalin and the rest of the mass murderers.

In the era of Lincoln or FDR Medea Benjamin and Jodie Evans would be arrested, tried and immediately (without the intervention of any social justice types)brought to summary justice!

Barack Hussein Obama, Jr., cannot "disown" them just as he can't part with Frank Marshall Davis, Tony Rezko, William Ayers, Prince Talaweel, Emil Jones, Mayor Daley, Jeremiah Wright, Father Pfleger, Louis Farrakhan, etc.

Whomever Evans supports is irrelevant. She's making this about Domestic opinion rather than a) American soldiers in harm's way and b) countries in direct proximity to Iran.,8599,430649,00.html

That article is five years old. I'm concerned about Israel. Whatever occurs, the Israelis will bear the brunt on the ground. If the ones in the line of fire are asking to keep diplomatic options on the table, assume this is more complicated than "rubbing elbows with the enemy."

Who cares if Evans is meeting with Ahmadinejad? What she's calling for is no different than what those in the position of direct danger have been calling for prior to 2003.

Obama, like every other leftist, is on his own side. That doesn't mean he has any real idea of who the people he is dealing with really are. One of the really awful things about multiculturalism is that, as it presupposes that all cultures are equal, it prohibits seeing other cultures as different (because inevitably these differences are going to compare unfavorably with one's own), and therefore prohibits those who suffer from it from realizing that people really DO think differently from them....

"inevitably SOME of these differences..."
