A Left vs. Left family dispute boiled over to Twitter today, with Code Pink tweeting a photo of co-founder Medea Benjamin desperately lobbying far-left Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., to abandon his support for attacking Syria.

This isn’t just a normal lobbying session, folks. It’s a prime example of a jilted peacenik realizing that a hard-left congressman she once loved is now philandering with aircraft carriers and cruise missiles. The peace movement once thought that congressional progressives only had eyes for them, but now they’re being replaced by the younger, flashier concept of “humanitarian intervention.”

Then again, the Code Pink activists may not be the only ones feeling jilted tonight. We’re wondering how freshman Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-Texas, will react when he realizes that our pink-shirted friends couldn’t even remember his name.

Oh well, he’s just a nameless rebound guy anyway. Right, Medea?

    Code Pink brought this upon themselves with their previously blind loyalty to Obama.

      No one is gonna take her seriously anyways, unless she’s dressed in a pink vagina suit.

    Such a relief to see the OTHER party in “disarray” for a change.

    • Frustrated Teacher

      This Prez has the whole COUNTRY in disarray…now he is trying for the whole world!!

        Sadly, you’re right.

      Nicely put, NC; it sure is refreshing, as seen in this pic 😉

    • MNWoman

      It won’t last long. Pretty soon they will all return to having blind loyalty. Even the congressowman from D.C. (I can never remember her name) made a comment about if Obama gets enough Dem votes, it will probably be because of loyalty.

      • Elaine

        Ed Asner said liberals were afraid to go against Obama because he is black. I couldn’t believe someone from the Hollywood crowd said it out loud! I guess being accused of racism is like a death sentence?

    My president is black.

    Therefore your white ass better get with the program.

    • Kimihiro Watanuki

      You have the lay of the land. These anti-war activists are trumped and they better get use to it. They’re only cogs and only useful at the voting booth.

    Implosion…awesome!

  • Michael Hardy

    Maybe Code Pink thought Democrats were really on their side during the Bush years? Wonder if they feel like useful/used idiots yet? They should

    • Cyborg3K

      Probably not. Real idiots don’t realize they’ve been used. They’ll forget and be back for more soon enough.

      • tops116

        Yeah, just look at the MSM. “Gee, Mr. President, we’re sorry we made you rifle through our e-mails. Please forgive us.”

      • objectivefactsmatter

        Dupes some times wake up. Idiots…very rarely.

    • Jon

      Medea Benjamin is finding out in 2013 what Cindy Sheehan learned in 2007, when she started hectoring new House Speaker Nancy Pelosi about cutting off Iraq military funding — You’re only important to Democrats as a prop that they think can sway swing voters to their side.

      Once you do something ‘treasonous’, such as stand on principle by being against military action by Democrats as well as Republicans (even if you’re only doing it because you think America is always the evil, aggressor nation in any international dispute), you’re not only cut off from access by the Dems, but their supporters in the big media also suddenly treat you like a non-person.

  • tops116

    So, how soon until Code Pink gets called racist for criticizing a black politician? Or is that only for critics of Obama?

    • Jay Stevens

      Yep.

  • Steve_J

    She doesn’t want to get too close, Keith has a history. Bam, Pow, Zowie.

    • 0bamasnought

      Wow, a “handy” Democrat.

  • stillinthe60s

    Ellison must really be conflicted. A Muslim AA who is asked to support his Prezi (D) in an attack on a Muslim nation. Hmm? Oh that’s right! His district is predominately AA but not Muslim. Guess he’s not that conflicted.

    • Cyborg3K

      Well, both sides in Syria are muslim terrorists. So it’s really just a matter of which flavor of terrorist do they think can help them do the most damage to America.

  • tjack

    Fake confrontation. By comparison during her Bush protests this staged photo is quite civilized. I’ve also included her Libya protest photo; if you can’t see it that’s because that’s the photo of her non-protest. These idiots do the absolute bare minimum and call it balanced. Eff off leftists/progs/feminists/dems/libs or whatever you’re calling yourselves, you have no more credibility if you ever had any at all.

  • robert anthony

    Poor Madea…she thought her biggest concerns with Obama in the WH would be Sandra Fluke’s condom stock and when to pick up her vagina suit from the cleaners.

      Well said, Robert; the peace protestors clearly have evolved, as this ‘toon shows:

  • http://redstate.com/ midwestconservative

    I too was surprised that “troofer” Keith Ellison was voting yes.
    But it’s not because of some “blind allegiance” on his part to the Obama admin.
    It’s because Ellison genuinely has Sunni Islamic jihadi sympathies. Whenever there is a Islamic terror attack he always plays the victim card.

  • Frustrated Teacher

    Just more proof that Dems really don’t care about people….especially the people they use to get elected and stay in power. Wake up!

  • Taxpayer1234

    Hey, why isn’t she wearing a pink vagina costume?

  • Mr.Richards

    I think Code Pink needs to declare code red and render themselves code blue.

  • tjp77

    If the reality of the Syria situation wasn’t so desperate and horrible, it would be freaking HILARIOUS.

    Watching the professional left, the media, congressional Democrats, and progressive activists all nervously dance around each other over what to do vis a vis their beloved lord and savior Obama and his maybe-war policy is pure gold.

  • ClinkinKY

    I’m just glad to see a pic of Medea Benjamin with her clothes on. Still doesn’t help.

  • MNWoman

    I really hope MN’s 5th district votes him out next year. I doubt it, but I can hope.

    Thankfully, he is not my representative.

  • Raye09

    Code pink was nothing more than a band of useful idiots. The same goes for Sandra Fluke and every other groups that fought to have Obama re-elected. Now that Obama has been re-elected there is no use for them, what’s sad is half of these lobby groups and organizations don’t realize this. They never had a place in this set-up, they were just useful at the time and now that they are no longer needed they are being let go of.

    • Karl Winrich

      They were pawns in a larger strategy and their usefulness has been exhausted so they are now quietly discarded.

  • BlackBettysBlog

    Soma’s comment is great:

    “A lot of Democrats have this “blind allegiance” towards this Pres. Whatever he does,they endorse. Dem Party needs a soul searching”

    As if the Dem Party had a soul.

    Bonus points for leftist trolls who can tell me what soma is. No googling, chirruns.

  • BoscoBolt

    BUT, the Code Pinkos don’t have a problem with Ellison’s long-standing, and very close ties to muslim terrorist groups?

    I love it when the left devours the left. Welcome to reality Code Pink. Did you think that Obama and his communists muslims were really on your side?

  • David

    At least Code Pink is staying true to their ideals. I’m astounded (but not surprised) that many on the left have hoisted the hawk flag and are ready to take us into a new war.
