OK -- I'm Questioning Their Patriotism Now

If this weren't Berkeley, I'd be shocked.

Heck, I'm even shocked about this crap coming from a bastion of liberal lunacy like Berkeley.

Members of the Berkeley City Council showed their opposition to a Marine Corps recruiting office in Downtown Berkeley last night.

Council members supported the two resolutions-one supporting anti-war protests and the other criticizing military recruitment practices-citing opposition to the war in Iraq, deceptive recruitment practices and the right to protest.

"By taking a stand against recruitment we are protecting the health and safety of our youth," said PhoeBe sorgen, a member of the Berkeley Peace and Justice Commission. "I see the protest as taking a proud and courageous stand."

Code Pink, a national anti-war grassroots organization, will be granted a parking spot for their regular Wednesday afternoon protests and will not need to apply for a sound permit for the next six months, under one resolution.

The other resolution more directly criticizes the presence of the center in Berkeley. The city manager was directed to send a letter to the U.S. Marine Corps saying they are "uninvited and unwelcome intruders" in the city.

In addition, the city attorney has been directed to investigate whether the city's anti-discrimination laws can be enforced at the center, based on the military's consideration of sexual orientation in hiring.

While the Marines are "uninvited and unwelcome intruders", al-Qaeda and the Taiban are no doubt welcome as contributors to the city's diversity. And oddly enough, illegal aliens (who are "uninvited and unwelcome intruders under American law) don't get that sort of treatment in Berkeley. Frankly, Berkeley is an uninvited and unwelcome intruder in the United States.

So let's see -- rejection and condemnation off the troops. Opposition to their mission of protecting the country. Interference with recruitment. Granting preferential treatment to the fifth column that puts Americas enemies before Americas fighting men and women.

Yep -- damn straight I'm questioning the patriotism of the entire frickin' population of Berkeley.

And I love the fact that these morons are attempting to put a city ordinance on a higher plane than the constitutional responsibilities of the US government.

It is time for a Solomon Amendment to strip federal funds from places like Berkeley due to their official attempts to interfere with military recruiting. it is sedition, plain and simple.

And I repeat my comment from the other day -- has the time come for the United States to secede from Berkeley, and build a border fence around it to keep such undesirables out of the country?
