Democratic presidential presumptive Sen. Barack Obama (IL) met with his terrorist supporting fundraiser, Jodie Evans, at a $5 million Hollywood fundraiser held last week at the Dorothy Chandler Pavillion on Tuesday, June 24.
In what can only be described as a big middle finger to the veterans and military families who have urged Obama to renounce Evans, Obama met with Evans and was photographed with her at the fundraiser.
Evans other half in the treasonous group, Susie "Medea" Benjamin spoke of Evans' meeting with Obama in Berkeley the day after the fundraiser. Video can be found here. Benjamin's account of the meeting with Obama is as follows:
"Last night Code Pink co-founder Jodie Evans was at a Hollywood bash for Barack Obama. And it was pretty interesting because there was Jodie going up to get her picture taken with Barack Obama. And I don't know if you've seen but some of these right wing groups have been trying to say that Barack Obama is really a communist because he gets money from people like Jodie Evans.
"So Jodie went up to shake his hand and the first thing he said to her without her saying anything is, "I know you Jodie, and Code Pink. And I know that you want me to end this war and bring all the troops home and I am going to do that."
"And he said, "I know that you want there to be no permanent bases in Iraq and I want that too."
"And she said,"But we don't trust you because you just put these policy advisors who are leftovers from the Clinton administration who are not antiwar."
"He said, "Don't worry, I have other advisors and I want to end this war in Iraq."
"And then she said, "But we're worried because you aren't standing up against the FISA bill and for our rights not to be illegally spied on."
"And he said, "I am going to vote against that bill."
"Of course we wanted him to do more, we wanted him to filibuster but he's not willing to do that. She pushed him on that.
"But I bring this up because we have the ability to push from the inside and the outside. And its being right here at this kind of place and places like this around the country that are the antidote to the people that are pushing Barack Obama to be quote centrist, which means a warmonger.
"So we have to keep this fight up. Not just because we want to see this Marine recruiting station closed. But because we want this message to reverberate in the presidential elections and the congressional elections.
"We want Nancy Pelosi to hear it. We want Barack Obama to hear it. We want all of those who are in power now and might have even more power come November to know that we are serious about ending this occupation and this war."
As previously noted, Evans is a co-founder of the anti-Military group Code Pinko, who gave $600,000 in aid to the "other side" in Fallujah, Iraq in late 2004. The next year, Evans took part in the World Tribunal on Iraq and said:
"We must begin by really standing with the Iraqi people and defending their right to resist. I can remain myself against all forms of violence, and yet I cannot judge what someone has to do when pushed to the wall to protect all they love. The Iraqi people are fighting for their country, to protect their families and to preserve all they love. They are fighting for their lives, and we are fighting for lies."
In 2006, Evans called for a return to the Saddam-era Iraq, stating:
"Let's go back to the Iraq before we invaded, there was a good education and health care system, food for everyone. That system didn't belong to Saddam it belonged to the Iraqi, it belonged to years of creating what a civilization needed. If your parents didn't send you to school they could be put in jail."
More recently, in a radio interview with Paul Ibbetson, Evans said that Osama bin Laden had a valid point for attacking America on September 11, 2001.
So while Barack Hussein Obama dares to challenge people who question his alleged patriotism, he meets with and will not return money from a fundraiser who leads a group that not only gives money to our enemies, they harass wounded members of our military and their families.
Jodie Evans, like William Ayers, is just another piece of evidence on how Obama aligns himself with the most extreme, anti-American elements.
And yes, Barack, I do question your patriotism!
