Called Code Pink for a reason

Cindy Sheehan, anti-war movement icon, has deep ties to the Code Pink organization. Will she be going on their, "Friendship Delegation" to Cuba in January? Or on their communist pilgrimage to Venezuala to attend the World Social[ist] Forum in February?

Code Pink is yet another anti-war organization, socialist in orientation and leadership, that is dishonest about their goals and aims, tirelessly calling the United States an oppressive terrorist power.

Let's go to Cuba?
Feel like Bush is trying to crush your dissent? Tired of chanting death to America at anti-war rallies only to find that the American people won't join you in your revolutionary fervor? Then have we got a place for you! "Cuba is one of the most beautiful and fascinating countries on Earth-and George Bush says you can't go there. Well, we're going anyway, and we invite you to join us!"

Cuba. The place where, "No dissent is allowed." Why would Code Pink want to celebrate a communist dictatorship? They celebrate it because it is the model for what they are fighting to bring about: a socialist government. Nevermind the repression, the cost in human lives, the dissidents imprisoned and executed purely for disagreeing with Castro's dictatorship. These are small sacrifices for the worthy cause of bringing all peoples into the global family of international socialism.

The Bush administration says we can only travel to Cuba if we have immediate family there. Well, we do. Cubans ARE family-Somos Familia. And while we're there, we'll be holding a mutual adoption ceremony in order to demonstrate that family transcends political boundaries. In the ceremony, each participant will be paired with a Cuban brother or sister. After all, we are all part of one human family and there should be no artificial barriers dividing us. CodePink

Medea Benjamin is the founder of Code Pink and is a committed Marxist. She also runs the tour company that will be taking Code Pink participants to the World Social Forum in December.

Need more proof that Code Pink is not referring to femininity? Not only does she agree with Michael Moore that Iraqi insurgents are freedom fighters, but she is willing to send cash to support their cause.

Members of Families for Peace, Code Pink and Global Exchange told a news conference in Amman that they had sent 600,000 dollars' worth of humanitarian aid to residents of the Iraqi town of Fallujah displaced by last month's massive US-led assault.

"I don't know of any other case in history in which the parents of fallen soldiers collected medicine ... for the families of the 'other side'," said Medea Benjamin, the founding director of Global Exchange, a human rights group.

"It is a reflection of a growing movement in the United States ... opposed to the unjust nature of this war," she said.

This gives a whole new meaning to the phrase, "I support the troops but not their mission." What this news brief does not mention is exactly what this 'humanitarian aid' actually consisted of.

Anti-American and anti-capitalist, these soldiers for 'social justice' wage war against the very thing that makes lessening poverty possible-- profit. They fight for a day when an absolute equality can be enforced in contradiction to all natural law and humanity. An equality born out of a cult of envy and used to manipulate those who harbor deep seated greed and spite. An equality whose revolutions have played out time and time again throughout the twentieth century with disasterous effect. We know historically that omelettes don't get made without breaking a few eggs. If Medea Benjamin, founder of Code Pink, ever got her revolution it would likely result in untold murders at the hands of the enforcers of her egalitaria.

For without profit everyone is poor. Without profit we all get to live (or die as the case may be) in abject poverty, without medicine, without science, without technology, and without that which makes survival possible. Essentially, the progressive goal is global bankruptcy. To return mankind to a 'closer relationship' with the earth as it were.

In fact, it is the goose that lays the golden eggs that is a target of the left. This is why America, as the symbol of capitalism, is the target of their rage and slanderous propaganda. Even though destroying capitalist America would not only result in misery for Americans, but for the entire world, they proceed on the premise that as the creator of income disparity it must be shackled and essentially destroyed.

Despite the fact that capitalism has brought untold prosperity to every country that practices it, progressives the world over still cling to the discredited idea that profit is evil and capitalism is oppressive. As if the problem is that in capitalist countries geese are laying golden eggs. But in a world of poverty, is the creation of wealth a problem to be overcome by ensuring wealth creation is sabotaged? Wouldn't it make more sense to say that we need more geese laying golden eggs, rather than less?
