New Lows in CODEPINK Bashing
Glenn Beck gave us credit for the massive,
peaceful uprising that brought a revolution
to Egypt. Sorry, Glenn, but that was a people-powered
rebellion against a violent regime.
We were inspired by the Egyptian people
and stood in solidarity with them, but we
couldnt possibly take credit. Beck
also accused CODEPINK co-founder Jodie Evans
of being involved with the Muslim Brotherhood,
a group he warned would take over after
the Egyptian Revolution. Wrong and wrong.
Comedian Jon Stewart featured Becks
paranoid ramblings about CODEPINK among
others in his Moment of Zen on The Daily
Show. Good times. In case you missed it,
watch the video below.

is easier to lead men to combat,
stirring up their passion, than
restrain them and direct them
toward the patient labors of peace.

ATTACKED BY THE FAR RIGHT:
In response to CODEPINK’s
vibrant and loud presence on Capitol Hill
in recent months, we have become the target
of far-right hatred that has filled staff
emailboxes with profane and insulting messages
suggesting that, among other things, we
should be run over by trucks, forced to
wear burkas, or shipped to Iraq and Afghanistan
where we would get what we deserved.
In addition, we recently came across SadlyNo's
post about the above
original below, which was first posted in
our World Social Forum here)
that had been doctored by someone who, when
taken to task for the clearly false banner,
speciously claimed that he had photoshopped
the image with text he had found on our
web site. Click
