A protester is dragged from the House Chamber on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, May 24, 2011, as Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed a joint meeting of Congress.
Her name is Rae Abileah. She later claimed she was manhandled and put in a choke hold. (If that didn’t happen. it should have.)
This is really Not her. 🙂 But why get technical?

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is heckled by Code Pink at an event in Washington, D.C.
“We supported Obama, we supported you, now 21 states are begging for money to help us save the community,” a woman screamed at Pelosi.
Goodness. I would call it screeching. Funniest thing about this is that they are on the same side. I’ve heard of loons, now I know what it means.
Washington Post video camera caught protester up close (a young woman in a wheel chair). I believe they are chanting, hey hey ho ho, nursing homes have got to go.
Among the protestors were members of the activist group Code Pink, who were silent but carried a banner with the message, “Stop funding Israel terror.”

Fox News Reports:
President-elect Obama is catching heat from the left over his refusal to condemn the violence in Gaza. Mr. Obama said today he is being briefed on the situation, but that there is only one sitting president at a time.
Jodi Evans — co-founder of the liberal anti-war group Code Pink — told the OpEd News yesterday she is “disgusted that Obama didn’t make a statement. He’s had an opinion about everything else. This is an atrocity and if he doesn’t call it an atrocity, it’s shameful.”
Fox News just showed footage of Code Pink protesting outside the Hay-Adams hotel in DC where Obama is staying, demanding that he condemn Israel. Fox also reported that Code Pink plans to be there every day until the end of Obama’s stay.

The co-founder of the radical anti-war group Code Pink [the aforementioned Jodi Evans] has “bundled” more than $50,000 for Sen. Barack Obama’s presidential campaign, and pro-troops groups are demanding that he return the money.” More Here
More ripples and rumblings among democrats. Now I understand why BHO has not stood with President Bush in his support of Israel.
