Youll be shocked, shocked to find out whos behind this: Veterans for Peace, Global Exchange and Code Pink. But dont you dare question their patriotism. Questioning their sanity is fair game, though. Evidence of west coast anti-military crazy goes back a few years.
The annual aerial show by the U.S. Navys Blue Angels a San Francisco tradition dating back to 1981 that pumps millions into the local economy is running into opposition from three local peace advocacy groups that are calling for a permanent halt to the popular Fleet Week flyover.
CodePink, Global Exchange and Veterans for Peace, Chapter 69, are working with Supervisor Chris Daly on a Board of Supervisors resolution to address concerns over the Blue Angels.
Daly acknowledged he is considering a call to halt the flyovers because, he said, they seem dangerous and unnecessary. Daly said he plans on introducing the resolution as early as Tuesday, but is still drafting the language. A resolution is not legally binding, but states a board position.
The Code Pinkos dont care about the economics, or the inspiration that kids might get from Fleet Week and the Blue Angels (well, they may care about the inspiration, but only to denounce it). They only care about themselves and their precious politics.
CodePink has launched an online petition, signed by more than 500 people to date, calling on leaders to end the flyovers for reasons of public safety, air pollution and fuel waste.
Cox said the resolution would establish that city leaders and the public are not in support of having the Blue Angels.
We can then take the next steps we have to legally stop them, he said.
Hm. San Fran has a population of about 751,682. Code Pink has 500 signatures on their online petition. Theyre a national organization with connections to the Speaker herself500 signatures is a pathetic result. But they think they represent the public of San Francisco. Given that citys warped politics maybe they do, but they have a looong way to go to prove it.
I’m sure the mega Libs will be fully successful in reaching a “mutual understanding” with the religion of peace.
When born-radical leftist revolutionaries try to stay legitimate... you get Code Pink.
How long before they turn militant from all their frustration?
Their petition seems to have omitted “global warming” as a reason for the ban. < sarcasm off >.
What a bunch of commies.
Even if they do pass such a resolution, they don’t control the air space over the city. I’d like to see the Blue Angels and the Thunderbirds make a high-speed, low-altitude pass over S.F., and leave red-white-and-blue smoke visible for miles.
The plan is to isolate the public from the military because they think the military is dangerous and unnecessary.
I don't know of anybody who saw a Blue Angels or that Air Force team(Yes, They are pretty good, too) that didn't get a positive and uplifting feeling. The peacenicks certainly don't want that. What is uplifting and positive to them are free sex and free dope.
We should build a wall around San Francisco, not only along the Southern border.
One of the cool things they would do during Fleet Week is anchor a carrier in San Francisco Bay and launch aircraft off the deck. I don’t know if they still do.
can they do a live fire exercise on city hall instead?
Okay, but if S.F. gets attacked by terrorists, I hope this carries over to the rest of the Navy, the Army, Coast Guard, Marines, and Air Force.
There is something special about watching aircraft fly in formation. Heck, even just the “standard” formations and pilots.
Most of these pinko-libs have trouble navigating down the road at a few dozen mph. No wonder they’re afraid of people with real skills flying in tight formations at hundreds of mph! LOL
If those jerk-offs want to flip the bird at the rest of America while trying to tell us all how to think and behave, they can do it without me or my dollars. If enough like-minded people did the same it would have a powerful effect.
That sounds good to me. It would keep two undesirable types from further infiltrating my state.
...not since Alameda Naval Air Station was closed....too bad...
