It's easy to commit treason when you have politicians to help

trea·son (trē'zən)
n.
  • Violation of allegiance toward one's country or sovereign, especially the betrayal of one's country by waging war against it or by consciously and purposely acting to aid its enemies.
  • A betrayal of trust or confidence.


  • Would giving money to terrorists in Iraq today constitute treason? I don't think the Greatest Generation would have stood for this, but we just roll over and take it, because after all, the groups in question are acting for "peace".

    Misha from The Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler has the story of how two American "anti-war groups" gave $600,000 in cash and supplies to terrorists in Iraq:

    A New York Times best-selling author says members of the supposed "peace movement" delivered hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash and supplies to terrorists engaged in a bloody street battle against United States Marines in Iraq.

    The latest book by Lt. Col. Robert "Buzz" Patterson (U.S. Air Force-Ret.) is called War Crimes: The Left's Campaign to Destroy Our Military and Lose the War on Terror. In the book, he claims that two anti-war groups -- "United for Peace & Justice" and "CODEPINK: Women for Peace" -- literally gave aid and comfort to terrorists when they delivered $600,000 in cash and supplies they claim was humanitarian aid to civilians.

    According to Patterson, Congressman Henry Waxman (D-California) facilitated the transaction for CODEPINK by signing a letter allowing them to get the cash and supplies into Fallujah.

    "Here is an American Congressman .... Here are American citizens who belong to these organizations," says Patterson. "They travel to Iraq and they are materially supporting, they are aiding and abetting the enemy that is killing American Marines. If that's not treason, nothing is."

    Patterson says that is not the only treacherous thing these groups have done. "When the Iraq war first started, CODEPINK and Medea Benjamin went to Baghdad and opened an office designed to try to encourage American soldiers to desert, go AWOL, and not fight the war," he explains. "Again, that's aiding and abetting the enemy."

    The author laments that the story has received virtually no coverage by the U.S. media.


    Misha responds:

    Assuming for the moment, since that’s all one can responsibly do until some evidence is produced, that he’s got the goods and that his “i”s are dotted and his “t”s crossed, CODEPINK, in association with a U.S. Congressman, conspired to and succeeded in funding the terrorist scum that we’re at war with, the swine killing our servicemen and -women, and we all know that those cavedwelling apes don’t use their funds to buy apple pies and band aids with.

    Do you have a relative or loved one over in the sand box right now? In that case, he or she may, at this very moment, be fired upon with weapons bought and paid for by CODEPINK, in association with Henry Waxman (D-al Qaeda).


    I have a loved one in the sandbox right now. I have friends there. How about you?

    It doesn't surprise me in the least that CODEPINK would do something like this. However, it is absolutely infuriating that a United States Congressman would facilitate the transaction.

    There should be a full investigation put forth to investigate this, and if it is true, then every last person involved should be executed for treason. PERIOD.

    That is, of cource, a photo-shopped pic...

    I recall seeing it a couple of years ago with the titles "You know it's summer when women start showing their bellies...

    It's why I don't open e-mails from co-workers any more... *shudder*

    Curls up in the corner to cry softly and try and think happy thoughts*

    Phew! Thank God! I hadn't seen this picture before, and I was sitting here stunned.

    I had the exact same reaction, Huck. My mind didn't want to accept that someone could look like that.

    The Code Pink part and the sign were photoshopped...one can only hope the original photo was exaggerated, too!

    Angry White Guy said...

    I wasn't...

    *shudder*

    I'm gonna go stare at cassie's pics, and hope to counter act the horror...

    In summary - Yes, that chick was really sitting on a bench, looking like that. The Codepink and signs are photoshopped, but the belly isn't.

    *hands out sporks to those wishing to gouge out their eyes*

    Gaaah! I'm scarred for life!

    With all the authentic photos of Code Pink available, what was the relevance of using this one? You ought to at the very least obscure the lady's face!

    Angry White Guy said...

    I doubt she did the Photoshopping. The pic of the woman is, at least, 2 years old. It's been 2 years since I first saw it.

    And it was used to scar people like Huck.

    I guess.
