Code Pink Changes Focus

Filed under: Bay Area politics — Tags: , , — edge of the sandbox @ 7:35 am

Code Pink is a left-wing group that made its name on anti-war activism in the aughts.  So you’d think with two wars and an increasingly illegal kinetic military action going on the aging protestesses would have their hands full demonstrating for world peace, right?  Wrong.  They’ve graduated to posing minor inconveniences to Republican presidential hopefuls in the name of “gay rights” and “women’s reproductive rights”:

The former Minnesota governor was signing copies of his memoir Courage to Stand in San Francisco when two women representing Reproductive Rights and anti-war group Code Pink opened manila envelopes, showering Pawlenty in pink confetti.

(Given his past track record, we predict Pawlenty will have a witty comeback ready by Monday.)

As she was being escorted out by San Francisco police, Code Pink campaigner and glitter thrower Nancy Mancias said, “Where’s your courage to stand for gay rights and for women’s reproductive rights?” adding, “Welcome to San Francisco!”

I expect Code Pink to stay focused on gay issues and abortion once Republican is elected to the White House in 2012.



  1. The Social issues are the only “weapon” the left has for 2012. They will go back to them time and again. They can’t talk about the economy, so they’re going to have to paint the Conservatives as against one group or another.

  2. I’m bracing myself for gay marriage becoming the issue of 2012.

  3. At the moment, they are a group without a cause that fits the Obama agenda.

  6. They will do whatever to stay in the news. Palestinians, gays, no dancing at Lincoln Memorial:, bad rap video: whatever half-baked idea they can cook up in their twisted Lefty brains.

    The rap video is just horrible. Even Vanilla Ice would be embarrassed.

  7. Yup, the aged pinkettes pretended to be horrified by soldiers being killed– but they support the killing of unborn children.

    Way to go, cultural Marxist biatches!

  8. In my view, Code Pink is nothing but a bunch of Leftist anarchists. The issues don’t really matter to Code Pink; instead, stirring up unrest does.

    • Thanks for stopping by, Always on Watch. You are right, they’ll jump on whatever’s the hip leftie cause they can find.
