A Lunch Hour Well Spent

CodePink outside the Armed Forces Recruiting Center, Washington, DC

Did a little flag waving today outside the Armed Forces Recruiting Center in downtown DC today. Turns out the “village idiots” of CodePink were having a “kiss in” in front of the center.

Little did they know….the recruiters from all 4 services had been on to their game, and had mostly taken off for the day. But that didn’t stop them….and it didn’t stop me and three other patriots-a student, a gentleman who had just retired from the State Dept., and the other half of Free Republic-DC’s black membership-from coming out to counter them.

The Pinkos (as they’re called) were…pretty much acting like fools. In honor of Valentine’s Day, they sang songs (“Stop, in the Name of Love” with antiwar lyrics), came up with odd slogans (“kiss, don’t enlist!”), handed out stickers (“Make Out, Not War), and tried to hug/kiss everyone. They got some support (we did as well), but mainly, they were just being an annoyance.

Mostly, it was good for laughs. We had our US flags, and I held a sign that said “Win the War!” (with “duh!” written in the exclamation point). Had a couple of exchanges with their one male representative-who looked high (or sick-benefit of the doubt!), wouldn’t put down his megaphone (explains my headache), and wouldn’t look me in the eye.

Cold as hell, but I can’t think of a better way to spend lunch.

  1. What is Code Pink standing for? I am guessing it is a anti war thing. But is there something else to it?
