Smile! You Support Hamas!

The institutional left and their progressive media organs have been busy weaving the narrative that President Obama’s re-election is a mandate to raise taxes. Republicans in Congress have been busy acquiescing to this narrative and it looks like all of that bipartisan busy work is going to pay off and taxes are going up. As someone famous once said, “Elections have consequences.”

If one of the consequences of the President’s re-election is the Tax Mandate, surely there are other mandates to be spun.

And as if on schedule, the events of recent weeks in Israel reveal another consequence of President Obama’s re-election, the Progressive Foreign Policy Mandate — the Mideast chapter.

Under this manufactured mandate, the Muslim Brotherhood is being spun as a legitimate and responsible steward of calm between Hamas and Israel. It shouldn’t be surprising that the Brotherhood could exert such substantial influence over Hamas given Article 2 of the Hamas charter, which reads, “The Islamic Resistance Movement [Hamas] is one of the wings of Moslem Brotherhood in Palestine.”

Early in President Obama’s first term, and throughout the following years, the White House made public overtures to the Brotherhood in general, and Islamist Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi specifically. Brotherhood members were reportedly invited to attend Obama’s landmark 2009 speech in Cairo. No word if celebrity Brotherhood member Ayman al-Zawahiri was in attendance.  Al-Zawahiri has been described by Bin Laden’s biographer as the “real brains” of al-Qaeda.

In July of 2012, the White House invited Morsi to conduct an official state visit in DC.  Tellingly, this visit had to be postponed due to the Egyptian government’s role in allowing the US embassy to be occupied by Islamists who raised the al-Qaida flag above our territory on the anniversary of 9/11.

In spite of his shocking dictatorial power grab, Morsi and the Brotherhood have had legitimacy conferred on them by the United States and those who participate in the kabuki theatrics of a so-called peace process, which is, in fact,  controlled in part by the parent organization of Hamas.

Andrew Breitbart saw this all coming. That’s why in the Summer of 2010 while in production for Hating Breitbart, Andrew donned his rollerblades and weaved in and out of valet car parkers and attendees of a posh Democratic Party fundraiser for Jerry Brown’s campaign for governor, shouting “Smile! You Support Hamas!”

The venue for the Brown fundraiser was the home of one of President Obama’s top financial bundlers,  Jodie Evans. Evans is co-founder of the radical Progressive activist group CodePink.  CodePink and their parent organization, Global Exchange, were among the lead organizers of the flotilla movement.  The Flotilla organized a group of extremist activists and terrorists who conspired to challenge Israel’s blockade of Hamas controlled Gaza.

Despite the shocking political activism of Evans and CodePink, Andrew knew that the people he was shouting at had no idea what he was talking about when he exclaimed “Smile! You Support Hamas!” The average attendee to this fundraiser, many of whom were elderly wealthy Jews, had no idea who CodePink was, let alone their role in the flotilla movement. But that was Andrew’s point.

If the mainstream media had been doing its job, it would have been easy to connect the dots.  The voting public would have been informed that Jerry Brown was holding a fundraiser with an organization responsible for giving aid and comfort to terrorist-controlled Gaza.

The elderly wealthy Jews in attendance at the Brown fundraiser can reasonably debate the merits of supporting such a group and its mission, but not if they are never given the benefit of the basic facts. Andrew wasn’t outraged at the attendees of the fundraiser, he was outraged for them!

For those of us who keep an eye on these things, it wasn’t surprising to see CodePink actively take part in the Arab Spring revolts in Egypt. They prominently posted pictures of themselves organizing protesters on their Flickr page.

CodePink and the Obama administration are conspicuously silent on Egyptian President Morsi’s dictatorial power grab. That’s the smart move if you don’t want to alienate an ally you’ve been courting for years, even when they openly begin acting like the tyrants they profess to be.

Yes, the progressive movement has been cultivating a working relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood for a very long time. The President’s re-election represents a mandate for this progressive foreign policy to continue and grow. And it will.

Elections do have consequences. Smile! You support Hamas!

    TREASON: "Aiding and abetting the enemy."

    Aiding terrorists like Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood is a crime and there have been trials and convictions BUT NOW OBAMA is making them HIS FRIENDS therefore, NO TREASON. "Hamas is a legitimately elected government." "Morsi was elected by the will of the people."

    We all use the term "democratic elections" to legitimize a government no matter how the group who won, won. They then quickly dismantle the very democratic institutions they used to win the election ensuring the group in power will only be removed through a military coup or violence or both.

    Luckily, our Congress is ruled by Republicans since if Congress, the Senate, and the White House were ruled by the Democrats, with Obama making his own appointments/CZARS and his own Executive Orders, they'd rule like Morsi and Chavez.

    IN THE PHOTO: MEDEA BENJAMIN. What is not well known is CODE PINK IS A FRONT OF THE COMMUNIST PARTY USA. Code Pink and Global Exchange, led by members of the Communist Party, started the OCCUPY MOVEMENT FIRST CALLED "THE DAY OF RAGE" on September 17, 2011. When "eye" revealed this with a link to the Code Pink website, they quickly removed the ad. When Occupy began, the movement claimed it was a "leaderless organization."

    MEDEA and the CPUSA organized the "Audacity of Hope" flotilla and they will surely organize another flotilla to test Israel again. THIS TIME, OBAMA WILL INTERVENE AND SUPPORT THEM.

      But we still don't know WHAT Obama threatened Israel with vis a vis the cease fire.

      "TREASON: "Aiding and abetting the enemy.""

      Liberal defense: Calling them an ally.

      "Aiding terrorists like Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood is a crime and there have been trials and convictions BUT NOW OBAMA is making them HIS FRIENDS therefore, NO TREASON."

      Only if you ignore the facts and believe the Obama lies.

    Back in 2004 when our Soldiers were fighting this brutal enemy in Fallujah, Suzi, Jodie Evans, and their Code Pink circus act were busy carrying $650,000 in "supplies" to the very enemy our Soldiers were fighting. How did they do that? With the aid and assitance of Congressman Henry Waxman, who wrote a letter to Daniel Goodspeed, Consul General, Aman, Jordan asking him to assist the "Global Exchange mission of Fernando Suarez del Solar." He states in his letter "I understand they will need assistance in setting up a peace camp and will need permission to allow Iraqi families to visit the camp."

    Suzi Benjamin and Jodie Evans have been aiding and abetting the enemy for a long long time, with the help of some elected officials. God Bless Andrew Breitbart, he knew what they were up to and he called them out!

    Please keep our Soldiers in your prayers!

      Exactly on the mark. Code Pink has a special spot in their heart for Fidel Castro and Che Guavara too. Well duh, they're a communist front group, and I'm sure are listed in 'Discover the Networks'.

    • Jim Diehl

      Bev, What Suzi (Media) Benjamin, Jodie Evans, Code Pink, Congressman Henry Waxman and others did was commit TREASON ! they do it over and over again and yet the FBI does nothing. Just like with Hanoi Jane Fonda.. If you have enough money or political clout you can get away with anything, including Treason…

      Let us not forget to mention the aid that Code Pink and the rest of the anti-American/pro-terrorist Fifth Column in this country (the ANSWER Coalition, et al) have provided our terrorist enemies by attempting to undermine the war effort here at home. Osama bin Laden couldn't have asked for a more eager band of useful Leftist idiots to serve his propaganda purposes in the USA than the back-stabbing moonbats in Me-Me Benjamin & Jodie Evans' outfit.

      • Viet Vet

        On the mark Mike. The same actors, or their political ancestors, did it to us in Viet Nam too.

        • Mike in VA

          Yes, they did, Viet Vet, and they would have been successful this time around if it wasn't for the efforts of the people who are/were aware of this.

    Article II, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution states: "The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors." Article III, Section 3 states: "Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort." So what are we waiting for?

    Medea: The killing of innocents by drones, passage of the NDAA, and the installation of radical Islam in Egypt are A-OK as long as it is "our" guy doing it.

    I'm no Hamas supporter. I'd love to see them get what's coming to them.
