CODEPINK Bashing/Photo Hoax

In February 2011, Glenn Beck gave us credit for the massive, peaceful uprising that brought a revolution to Egypt. Sorry, Glenn, but that was a people-powered rebellion against a violent regime.

We were inspired by the Egyptian people and stood in solidarity with them, but we couldn’t possibly take credit. Beck also accused CODEPINK co-founder Jodie Evans of being involved with the Muslim Brotherhood, a group he warned would take over after the Egyptian Revolution. Wrong and wrong. Comedian Jon Stewart featured Beck’s paranoid ramblings about CODEPINK among others in his Moment of Zen on The Daily Show. Good times. In case you missed it, watch the video below.

It is easier to lead men to combat, stirring up their passion, than to
restrain them and direct them toward the patient labors of peace.

— Andre Gide, author, Nobel laureate (1869-1951)

In response to CODEPINK's vibrant and loud presence on Capitol Hill in recent months, we have become the target of far-right hatred that has filled staff emailboxes with profane and insulting messages suggesting that, among other things, we should be run over by trucks, forced to wear burkas, or shipped to Iraq and Afghanistan where we would get what we deserved.

In addition, we recently came across SadlyNo's post about the above photoshopped CODEPINK photo(see original below, which was first posted in our World Social Forum here) that had been doctored by someone who, when taken to task for the clearly false banner, speciously claimed that he had photoshopped the image with text he had found on our web site.
