And all this time I thought the Pinkos were taking a brief time out during the holidays. Turns out Medea and some comrades were in Pakistan showing the citizens how lunatics without a real job and sporting severe cases of BDS behave...
The two members of Code Pink who were arrested in Pakistan earlier today have been released by the Directorate of Inter-Services Intelligence, the organization announced.
Medea Benjamin and Tighe Barry, who arrived in Pakistan Nov. 25, have had their visas revoked and are to be removed from the country early Wednesday, the feminist antiwar group said in a release. The protests in which the activists have been involved are illegal under the emergency rule declared last month by Gen. Pervez Musharraf, the organization said.
The pair were leaving the Lahore Press Club when their car was stopped by six government agents, Code Pink said in a release. The driver was ordered out and the police confiscated the vehicle with the activists inside.
Earlier, the activists had attended a student rally at the press club in Pakistan’s second-largest city, the organization said. On leaving, they were followed by police on motorcycles. When they attempted to call reporters, the organization said, they found their cell phones were jammed.
“It’s a sad state of affairs when the Pakistani government – a government that is trying to portray itself to the West as democratic – tries to harass and deport U.S. human rights activists,” Benjamin said. “If they do this to us, who have the protection of being U.S. citizens, imagine what they do to their own citizens.”
“We will not be intimidated,” Barry said. “We will continue our activities here in support of Pakistanis struggling for democracy, and we call on the Pakistani government to stop harassing us and respect our rights.”
What in the heck does Code Pink know about respecting rights? On more than one occassion they have demonstrated a complete lack of respect for anyone that does not toe the pink line. But complaining about harassment is ironic - this from the group that accosted Condi Rice with fake blood, who disrupt Congressional Hearings and who parked their arses in front of Pelosi's house in protest.
Another howler - CodePink fighting for democracy! These commies in pink could care less about democracy - after all, who was cozing up with Hugo Chavez last year?
Maybe they can visit the Sudan next and talk about teddy bears...
