Chaos in Berkeley...No Thanks to the Cops

Melanie Morgan sent out an e-mail describing the shameful acts yesterday by the City Council of Berkeley, Code Pink and their supporters, and the Berkeley Police. For those of us who weren't there, it's an eye-opening account of how bad things have deteriorated in that city on the left coast. I'll reprint it in full below.

Also, my friend Thirdwave Dave was there, and he called his live updates in to Andrea at Radio Patriot. You can see the thread here.

I say just allow California to secede. Really.

Below is Melanie's account:

Pro-troop demonstration still going strong but here is my after action report after 15 hours on the frontlines.

If I were a headline writer I would describe the situation as CHAOS AND ANARCHY IN BERKELEY today.

Not by our side by the Marine haters and American traitors.

The cops were openly hostile toward the people who showed up at 5:00 a.m., never stepping in to protect the patriots from the assaults that took place against elderly folks, Gold Star parents, Blue Star families and Joe and Jane Citizen who were waving the flags and showing their pride in the Marines. The police allowed hundreds of Berkeley High School kids (accompanied by their teachers) to gather with CodePink, receive their mandatory face masks and F---k Bush t-shirts, and allowed them to mill around our PA where they tried to cut the power cords to the system.

Berkeley police repeatedly allowed CodePink to violate our permits, and never lifted a finger to stop their crowd from interfering with our activities until the very end, after we screamed blue bloody hell.

When Catherine Moy, the Executive Director of MAF called the police to tell them a riot was erupting in the early hours THEY HUNG UP ON HER.

Cat called the Highway Patrol, who referred her back to the Berkeley police WHO HUNG UP ON HER.

It was positively shameful.

Move America Forwards attorney Jim Sweeney took depositions from ten people who were assaulted by CodePink, International A.N.S.W.E.R. and socialists who showed up en masse.

The City Council has been notified by fax that we are filing a federal lawsuit for deprivation of our civil rights.

We didnt start this fight, but we are damn sure gonna finish it.

The pro-troops demonstration is still going strong at 7:30 p.m. PST, with all streets around the Berkeley City Council closed off as the CodePinkos continue to receive preferential treatment by the Berkeley PD.

Move America Forwards sound permit was turned off at 5:00 in the afternoon, while the Pinkos were allowed to use their system to sing Kumbaya and other 60s peace chants.

Berkeley, the birthplace of free speech, is now officially the center of intolerant hatred for anyone who sticks up for the men and women who are fighting and dying to protect THEIR rights.

Before our sound system was nearly sabotaged, a young man posing as a pro-troop supporter asked to speak to the crowd. I allowed him to talk (about his familys service, when he started spewing obscenities about the illegal, immoral, unjust war . I grabbed the microphone back, and he tried to clobber me with it.

Gold Star Dad Mark Crowley knocked him to the ground, where he found a faceful of dirt to keep him company.

Our side sang God Bless America, America the beautiful and other stirring songs that seemed to enrage the elderly commies.

25,000 petitions were collected by Move America Forward with the help of other pro-troops groups like Gathering of Eagles, EaglesUp, Vets for Freedom and others.

There were Eagles EVERYWHERE today.

And Patriot Guard Riders.

And American Legion vets.

And members of the Military Order of the Purple Heart.

5,000 petition signatures were also collected by an organization in Washington headed by Nicholas Provenzano, who flew out to Berkeley on the red-eye to deliver to the City Council announcing an economic boycott of Berkeley until it reverses it shameful treatment of our Marines.

Red, White and Blue Americans rushed to our side from Atlanta, Georgia, New York, Pennsylvania, Colorado, San Diego, and other parts of the United States.

Our crowds numbered into the thousands throughout the day.

So gratifying. So humbling.

People of all ages, races, and political backgrounds (yes even some incensed liberals) honored our active duty service members serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, and in other parts around the world.

We spoke of the sacrifice and the nobility of the military families who support their sons and daughters, husbands and wives.

And we gave a HOOO-AWW especially to our Marines, who find themselves prevented from speaking while under assault, not from a evil enemy abroad, but from the insurgents here at home.

We should be proud and exhilarated by the turn-out and passion of so many people who set aside their lives, showed up, and spoke out.

I dont know what will happen with the Berkeley City Council, but I would be you that dollars to donuts, theyll issue some mealy-mouthed WE SUPPORT THE TROOPS, JUST NOT THEIR MISSION crap, and then keep in place all the restrictions that make recruiting on Shattuck avenue all but impossible.

I have no idea how the media will portray this historic event I can only tell you that 3 TV helicopters were overhead almost all day long, every major media outlet in the Bay Area, as well as national TV and print reportersbut OUR people spoke eloquently, passionately, and with conviction about the hateful attitude that the City of Berkeley has displayed toward the USMC.

Although it doesn't surprise me anymore, it still disgusts me beyond words whenever the far left crawl from under their rocks to decry the very military that gives them their freedom.

I notice none of them ever have the courage of their convictions to leave America for one of the liberal utopias in China, Venezuela, or Cuba.

Where is the VIDEO of this? Sounds like something that SHOULD make network news.

I won't hold my breath.

O'Reilly's been pretty good on this, however.

Didn't see much on the network news...what a surprise. O'Reilly's been good on this, however, so I checked out his show that night and he had judge Napalitano who really surprised me by supporting the move by the council regarding the parking space issue.

I think anyone should be allowed to protest...but if abortion clinics get a ring of protection, why can't we apply that same precedent to recruitment offices?

Ding, ding, ding! I think we have a winner!
