Berkeley Strikes Again

"...The City of Berkeley, California has passed two resolutions attacking the United States Marine Corps, calling the Marines, “uninvited and unwelcome intruders in the city.”

The Berkeley City Council voted to condemn the Marines on Tuesday night (January 29th) as part of a campaign by anti-war activists to shut down a U.S. Marine Recruiting Center located in the city of Berkeley.

The actions by the Berkeley City Council followed continuous protests by Code Pink and other anti-military organizations that vandalized and defaced the U.S. Marine Recruiting Center in September 2007.

One of the two resolutions passed by the Berkeley City Council last night granted a parking spot in front of the Marine Recruiting Center to be used by anti-military activists to harass Marine recruiters. The anti-military activists would not need to apply for a sound permit for the next six months – allowing them free reign to disrupt the day-to-day operations by the Marines..." (source)

As an interesting side not to this current Left Coast fiasco... You know how the 'Blame America First crowd' always touts Tim McVeigh and Ted Kaczynski as examples why we can't stereotype Islamic extremists? 'Look, white boys did it too!' Aside from the obviously lame nature of the justification comparison, are the pretty compelling stories that McVeigh was trained by al Qaeda in the Philippines AND this weekend I was watching a "Discovery Times" FBI files about the unabomber and learned something I can't believe I didn't know before. He was a professor at BERKELEY! Snap!

BTW, who is Noone? :)
