Skip to comments.Obama to Vets and Military Families: **** You! I'm Standing by Jodie Evans and Code Pink

Democratic presidential presumptive Sen. Barack Obama (IL) met with his terrorist supporting fundraiser, Jodie Evans, at a $5 million Hollywood fundraiser held last week at the Dorothy Chandler Pavillion on Tuesday, June 24.
In what can only be described as a big middle finger to the veterans and military families who have urged Obama to renounce Evans, Obama met with Evans and was photographed with her at the fundraiser.
Evans is co-founder of the leftist anti-American group Code Pink. She and Code Pink have endorsed the terrorists in Iraq and have sent over $600,000 in cash and humanitarian aid to "the other side" in Fallujah.
Evans said in an interview last month on June 3 that al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden had a 'valid argument' for attacking America on Sept. 11, 2001.
When Obama launched his presidential campaign in February 2007, he turned to Jodie Evans, who had just returned from Cuba as a guest of the Castro government where she was protesting against America, to co-host his first big Hollywood fundraiser. He also tapped Evans to bundle between $50,000 and $100,000 for his campaign. Evans personally gave the legal maximum, $2300, to Obama's campaign.
A video posted at Indybay.org shows Evans' fellow co-founder of Code Pink, Fidel Castro groupie Medea Benjamin, describing in great detail Evans' meeting with Obama last week:
Note, Benjamin describes the meeting as if she were an eyewitness, but she doesn't say whether she was there with Evans)
"Last night Code Pink co-founder Jodie Evans was at a Hollywood bash for Barack Obama. And it was pretty interesting because there was Jodie going up to get her picture taken with Barack Obama. And I don't know if you've seen but some of these right wing groups have been trying to say that Barack Obama is really a communist because he gets money from people like Jodie Evans.
"So Jodie went up to shake his hand and the first thing he said to her without her saying anything is, "I know you Jodie, and Code Pink. And I know that you want me to end this war and bring all the troops home and I am going to do that."
"And he said, "I know that you want there to be no permanent bases in Iraq and I want that too."
"And she said,"But we don't trust you because you just put these policy advisors who are leftovers from the Clinton administration who are not antiwar."
"He said, "Don't worry, I have other advisors and I want to end this war in Iraq."
"And then she said, "But we're worried because you aren't standing up against the FISA bill and for our rights not to be illegally spied on."
"And he said, "I am going to vote against that bill."
"Of course we wanted him to do more, we wanted him to filibuster but he's not willing to do that. She pushed him on that.
"But I bring this up because we have the ability to push from the inside and the outside. And its being right here at this kind of place and places like this around the country that are the antidote to the people that are pushing Barack Obama to be quote centrist, which means a warmonger.
"So we have to keep this fight up. Not just because we want to see this Marine recruiting station closed. But because we want this message to reverberate in the presidential elections and the congressional elections.
"We want Nancy Pelosi to hear it. We want Barack Obama to hear it. We want all of those who are in power now and might have even more power come November to know that we are serious about ending this occupation and this war."
Jodie Evans' record as an anti-American activist is well-known. She travels the world, meeting with the likes of Hugo Chavez and representatives of the so-called Iraqi resistance. In 2005, she had this to say about the terrorists killing and maiming American troops:
We must begin by really standing with the Iraqi people and defending their right to resist. I can remain myself against all forms of violence, and yet I cannot judge what someone has to do when pushed to the wall to protect all they love. The Iraqi people are fighting for their country, to protect their families and to preserve all they love. They are fighting for their lives, and we are fighting for lies.
Barack Obama has no problem meeting with her, accepting her money and enlisting her aid in his campaign.
Whether he does exactly as she wants when she wants is beside the point. The point is Evans has the blood of American soldiers on her hands--and Obama embraces her without reservation. And he wants to be commander-in-chief.
>>We must begin by really standing with the Iraqi people and defending their right to resist.

I truly hope this Evans bitch burns in hell...and the same goes to that POS obama.
Thanks for posting this.
If only we still gave people the firing squad or noose for treason...

any pics with the pinko’s?
Sometimes I think I was born about 60 years too late.
to all those who will not vote for McCain. You are voting for this thing.
OBAMA: “I can no more disown Jodie Evans and the Code Pinko traitors than I could throw my racist white granny under the bus!”
“wait, granny, is that you down there? Who threw you under my campaign bus?”
Wow, indeed. It can’t get much more ‘in your face’ than that.
Nope. Maybe a reporter will dog the Obama campaign for the pics of him and Jodie.
Notice how Obama's meeting with Code Pink hasn't even been mentioned on the TV or newspapers? It's because both Obama and his media goons know that such a controversial meeting would be divisive and detrimental to his campaign.
I also know that any controversial meeting conducted by McCain will be broadcasted all over the place as the media attempts to divide his camp and audience.
The media is nothing but a pro-Obama collective that manipulates our reality, steamrolls the opposition and shapes the election.
Incidentally, Obama recently pulled some more secretive BS with his "closed door" meeting with the racist Congressional Black Caucus.
Eagles6, what I do is copy the link (like this one) and send myself a private reply with the link in the message box. That way you have an easy to manage list in your FR message box.
You’re welcome. I’m a slow transcriber. And having to listen to Medea Benjamin’s voice for a long time so as to get the words down accurately is a special kind of torture. A very special kind of torture......
It is hard to transcribe unless you know some kind of shorthand. I used to know shorthand in highschool but have since forgotten most of it. Thanks for enduring the torture and posting this for us. It is news to me.
