Well, the communists on the Berkeley, CA City Council are at it once again, voting this week to order the US Marine Corps to remove its recruiting station from the city's downtown.
U.S. Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) took great exception to this ruling, stating, "This is a slap in the face to all brave service men and women and their families. The First Amendment gives the City of Berkeley the right to be idiotic, but from now on they should do it with their own money." DeMint plans to draft legislation to rescind any earmarks dedicated to Berkeley in the recently passed appropriations bill, adding that any federal money taken back from Berkeley would be given to the Marines. He added, "If the city can't show respect for the Marines that have fought, bled and died for their freedom, Berkeley should not be receiving special taxpayer-funded handouts."
One Marine Corps official noted, "We understand things are different here, but some people just don't get it. This is a part of the military machine that gives them the right to do what they do, but what they are doing is extreme." BOY IS THAT AN UNDERSTATEMENT!
The Marine official told Fox News that Marine Corps Commandant Gen. James Conway scoffed at the news. He further stated that the Marines will not be moving the recruiting station. "To actually put something into law that encourages the disruption of a federal office is ridiculous. They are not going to kick a federal office out of its rightful place there, and this is not going to discourage those young patriots who want to be Marines."
The Berkeley council also voted to give the antiwar group "Code Pink" a parking space in front of the recruiting station as well as a protest permit.
I have an idea. Let's have the federal government completely cut Berkeley off from any and all federal tax dollars they receive. Since the city has clearly chosen to become a bastion for communism, anarchy and flat out apathy toward America's enemies, let's shut them out from the United States of America and treat them like the pansy-ass stepchildren they are!
