Code Pink is still telling Green party members to support the pro-war Democratic Party

You really think you need to tell Green Party members this.  We supported Cynthia McKinney.  While you, and Barbara Lee. were supporting Obama.  Why not celebrate Cynthia, the presidential candidate who opposed the Afghan War?  Or are too afraid of the pro-war Democratic Party to do that?

>                                                 But we must never forget: This is not a war of choice. This is                a war of necessity. Those who attacked America on 9/11 are plotting                to do so again. If left unchecked, the Taliban insurgency will mean                an even larger safe haven from which al Qaeda would plot to kill                more Americans. So this is not only a war worth fighting. This is                a — this is fundamental to the defense of our people.”
>                                 No,                it wasn’t George Bush. It was our current President, Barack                Obama, parroting Bush’s position on endless war in the Middle                East . While the media is focused on the controversial                elections in Afghanistan , we need to remind Obama that this                is indeed a war of choice , and that he needs to choose to                bring our troops home and give the US people his exit strategy.

We’ll begin with                a media blitz from September 14-18, timed to honor the anniversary                of Barbara Lee’s courageous vote against the war. Then we will                join in anti-war activities the week of October 5th – 10th marking                the 8th anniversary of the invasion.

So they can no longer be used                to fund the war. Click                here to support our trip .
>                                 A                new Washington Post-ABC news poll reveals that the majority                of Americans think the war in Afghanistan is not worth fighting,                and a recent                video from Brave New Films shows how members of Obama’s                own administration believe that the war is only fueling more terrorism.
>                                 With                both public and military opinion on our side, we need Obama to feel                our heat so he can realize how misguided he is about this war. Now                is the time for us to quiz ourselves and ask what we can do to affect                Obama’s position on Afghanistan. Join                our action team , together we will raise our voices. There                is too much talk about a missing anti-war movement on Afghanistanlet                them hear us load and clear.

  1. […] This is the second time that Code Pink has been clueless in going to Greens with a supporter of Obam….  They targeted a Tom Hayden email to Green Party members. (email below)  Are Green Party members who opposed these wars from the beginning, and whose candidates oppsed these wars, really gonna want any advice from the guy who told people to vote for the pro-war Obama?  I think not.
