Move America Forward Continues the Fight for OUR Marines

A quick recap for those that haven't heard about the city of Berkeley and the Berkeley city council's anti-military stance against our Marines and service members.

In January the Berkeley city council passed a resolution, 6 to 3 to tell our Marines:

From: Peace and Justice Commission


1. Direct the City Attorney to investigate and report back to Council within 60 days on City options for enforcing Chapter 13.28 of the Berkeley Municipal Code, prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, with respect to military recruiting offices in Berkeley;

2. Direct the City Manager to send letters to the Marine Corps Recruiting Station at 64 Shattuck Avenue and to General James T. Conway, Commandant of the United States Marine Corps, advising them that the Marine recruiting office is not welcome in our city, and if recruiters choose to stay, they do so as uninvited and unwelcome intruders;

3. Encourage all people to avoid cooperation with the Marine Corps recruiting station, and applaud residents and organizations such as Code Pink, that may volunteer to impede, passively or actively, by nonviolent means, the work of any military recruiting office located in the City of Berkeley.

This caused a firestorm of reaction, Move America Forward instantly came to the front to fight for our Marines and planned a little road trip to attend the next city council meeting on February 12, 2008,, Code Pink decided they were going to try to counter the massive outcry against Berkeley council and sent their own alerts out, businesses that do business with the city of Berkeley took the stand that they would no longer DO business with Berkeley, brave politicians stood up and proposed legislation to strip Berkeley of federal funds and earmarks.

For those unaware of who Code Pink is, they are bunch of cretins that run around dressed in pink and calling our troops killers as seen in the sign they held up at the counter protest:

The day arrived and with constant updates we watched patriots from across the country descend on Berkeley to stand up for the was spectacular!

The Berkeley city council rescinded their previous resolution....the Patriots had been heard, BUT, the city council discussed and discarded the idea of APOLOGIZING to the marines and the people of Berkeley for their incredibly idiotic actions.

So, we are all caught up now....

Move America Forward is not done with the Berkeley City Council and as per their announcement via email:

We at Move America Forward are proud to release to you this brand-new ad that takes on the Berkeley City Council's campaign against the military.

We're fighting back and want you to see this ad and then pass it on to others. Please email it to others, post to blogs - let's get the word out!! The ad will begin airing nationwide starting this upcoming Monday. Until then Move America Forward will be raising money to buy as much airtime as possible!

For those getting this article via email,here is the YouTube URL for the video, it is a little over one minute and WELL WORTH watching.

Please keep in mind, we have joined with some other bloggers in yet another CALL TO ACTION, because the Pinkly Clad pests are now targeting other recruiting stations in other towns, including a Navy Recruitment Center in Santa Monica on Friday the 22nd and we need patriots from all over to go and stand up for our Naval men and women and counter the hate that the Code Pinko's will be spewing at them.

Patriots around the country, veterans, supporters, family members, and citizens that are grateful that our troops, all of them, are willing to put their lives on the line for America..... make sure that your town isn't invaded by these pink insects and stand up against them proud and strong...let our troops know that while they are fighting to protect us, WE HAVE THEIR BACKS HERE AT HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
