Tempers Flare At Anti-War Rally At Travis AFB

Below is a story on the Code-Pink Thugs. I experienced some of these Commies who play the role of "Community Organizer/Victim". They are Radical Marxist just like their leader, Barry Soetero. This Cindy Sheehan is a disgrace to America. Her poor son died for his Country and his memory is down played because his Mom wants to be a Celebrity. By the way where are all the Global Warming Nazis celebrities this week?

A Saturday rally led by anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan at Travis Air Force Base nearly ended in a brawl when a military veteran physically confronted the protesters.

Anti-war group Code Pink demonstrated at the military base Saturday morning in the first of six planned protests against unmanned military drones currently in use in overseas war zones.

Sheehan, a well-known anti-war activist whose son was killed while serving in Iraq in 2004, was leading the demonstration with a megaphone when a man dressed in a formal military uniform stepped up to her and berated her.

Videotape of the incident shows that Sheehan yelled "Get out of my face" through the megaphone at the man, who slapped the device away. Other protesters immediately joined Sheehan and traded insults with the man, and a shoving match broke out.

Military police quickly pulled the two sides apart.

The military veteran told reporters that he was upset with the anti-war protesters’ effect on troop morale. "They ruin the troops. They get to the troops. They did the same thing in Vietnam," he said.

The man declined to give his name to reporters. "I don’t want to be a personality over this, that’s not my intention," he said.

Sheehan told reporters that she was disappointed her protest against what she called "morally reprehensible" military drones was interrupted by the man.

"We are here non-violently, and he came up and shoved the megaphone into my face," she said. "I’m never going to stop, no matter how we’re oppressed."

Sheehan said she would be speaking to an attorney about legal action against the man.

Code Pink protester Xan Joy, who physically confronted the man during the incident, called the man a "bully" and said his behavior was meant to intimidate the protesters.

"He should be so happy and grateful that there are people in this country that are trying to protect him and his children and everybody’s children from war," Joy said.

The events of the day did not end when the protesters packed up and left. When part of Code Pink’s caravan paused in the middle of the road, Sheehan was given a ticket for impeding traffic.

"I got assaulted by this old man and I’m the one given a ticket. So, yeah, it’s bulls***," Sheehan said.

Several members of Code Pink said they wanted charges filed against the man in uniform, but no arrests were made.

Let’s review.

Ms. Sheehan claims the gentleman shoved the megaphone into her face, when the photographs show just the opposite.

And Code Pink protester Xan Joy, “who physically confronted the man during the incident called the man a ‘bully.’”

Usually its the physical confronter who is the bully.

But the professional harridans at Code Pink always seem to get things backwards. Their hatred for this country has twisted their minds.

"I’m never going to stop, no matter how we’re oppressed."

Cindy will never stop as long as those Chavez/Soros checks keep coming in.

After all, ‘protesting’ beats getting a real job.
