Update on “Witches, clowns and sirens day”

I posted yesterday about Code Pink’s weeklong protest “theme” for the Berkeley Marine recruiting station. LT. Nixon picked up on the story and had an interesting idea for a Code Pink/ Manowar Metal Death Match. It’s an interesting way to fight, but hey, he is a sailor after all. I was actually rather amazed that he posted on it as the original story was published online by Fox News.

Yesterday they (Fox News) also had an updated post with pictures from the protest. Fort hose of you who don’t wish to go the FN website to see them, here is what the cauldron filled with flowers looked like:

They apparently did manage to get a little bit of a response. Move America Forward decided to play along with the shenanigans.

Members of the pro-troops group Move Forward America came armed with packages of salt, which they spread around the recruiting station to keep the Marines safe from spells.

However, their protester count didn’t see the big jump this week they were undoubtedly hoping for.

Code Pink’s protest capped a Mother’s Day week’s worth of themed protests, which included days to galvanize grannies and bring-your-daughter-to-protest. The planned events appear to have done little to boost the protesters’ flagging numbers.

A FOX News camera, which has a 24/7 live shot of the recruiting center’s front door, recorded little action, and the gatherings have, until this point, been ill-attended.

That sounds like good news to me.

  1. P.S.- Yesterday I actually had someone read the first post after searching for “code pink cauldron”. It’s strange the ways people find this site.
