Violent Attacks By Anti-War Radicals Against Military Recruiting Centers
Code Pink and Anti-War Groups Hysterical Over ReportThis weekend a new report was released detailing a campaign of violence by supposed "peace" protestors against military recruiting centers across the United States.
Titled "The Sedition Report," the document released by the pro-troop organization Move America Forward (website: http://www.MoveAmericaForward.org) followed a month-long exhaustive investigation into actions by anti-war activists against military recruiting centers including bombs planted at recruiting centers (Times Square - NY and St.Louis, MO), shots fired at a recruiting center (Denver, CO), firebombing of recruiters cars (in Alabama and Maryland), manure and feces smeared across recruiting centers (Toledo, OH and Milwaukee, WI) and on and on.
Anti-War Protestor Tighe Barry Shows He Is Not So Peaceful
As the report was being released to the media at the historic National Press Club, anti-war activists threw a hissy fit - literally. Members of anti-war groups including Code Pink and Global Exchange infiltrated the news conference posing as reporters. In the middle of the news conference they began to yell and scream, declaring that the reports of violence by the anti-war movement were all lies. One gentleman stood up, proclaimed himself a 2nd generation Marine and said he was ashamed of what had become of the military he once served in. He removed his outer shirt, revealing a pink captain's jacket with various insignias. As he proceeded to scream epitepths against our troops he was asked to leave by security. When he refused a scuffle ensued. A reporter for the Washington Post confronted the individual and found out he was in fact NOT a Marine.

The anti-war activist Tighe Barry has previously been arrested for disrupting the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee (see more info here: http://www.afterdowningstreet.org/?q=node/29203) and most notably was arrested after he traveled to Pakistan to express support for Islamic terrorists (see more info here: http://www.swamppolitics.com/news/politics/blog/2007/12/code_pink_members_arrested_in.html )
Melanie Morgan, Chairman of Move America Forward, said that the hostile actions of those who disrupted the news conference goes to the point of "The Sedition Report." "These are the same types of actions these individuals have engaged in at recruiting centers such as the one at 14th and L in Washington, D.C. and Berkeley, California. They storm the office, disrupt the actions of recruiters, commit acts of vandalism, and occupy the offices."
As part of the effort to inform the American people about the increasing frequency and degree of violence in these attacks against recruiting offices, Move America Forward also released a new national ad campaign.
The ad was featured on Fox News Channel on Sunday in an interview hosted by Jamie Colby.
