Speaking of Code Pink



This is the brief exchange I had with the approximately three women who carried the Code Pink banner in the Gaza Freedom March on December 27. Added bonus: you can see the guy with the Hezbollah flag at the end.

This is what you hear on the video:

Me: What does that say? Underneath?

Code Pink: The Arabic? I'm not sure.

Me: Oh, okay.

Code Pink: Probably a repeat.

Me: Probably.

(Can you tell from my voice that I was unconvinced? I'd want to know for certain before I marched with something in another language.)

I can translate it for you:

"Code Pink: Big, fat, humpbacked, hairy lesbians for Allah..."

Hope that helps.

Boy, the people commenting here are just boiling with hate.

More like snickering with disdain.

Boiling with hate?? I'd say accusing people of being 'hate-mongers' for having a different pov tban yours is more hateful.

I see, so when Zionists claim that pro-Palestinian rallies are "hatefests" they aren't doing what you claim but when people on your side call on people to "blow themselves up" or sneeringly refer to people who disagree with them as "Big, fat, humpbacked, hairy lesbians" that's not hateful?

Yeah, right.

I interpreted it as a joke about whoever it was that wrote the Arabic on the sign.

A joke filled with malice and hate.

If you want to see malice and hate you need to pay attention to what those idiots are promoting. And for the record--the description is right on:)
