One of the leading protest groups in NYC is Code Pink, “a women initiated grassroots peace and social justice movement that seeks positive social change through proactive, creative protest and non-violent direct action.” They champion military deserters, support mothers who refuse to get c-sections to save the lives of their children, and hate Hummers.

How else does Code Pink advocate “positive social change?” By praising the likes of Venezuelan thug and Fidel Castro protege, Hugo Chavez. Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin’s love letter to Chavez is here. Benjamin slavers: “With the US elections coming up in November, George Bush—and John Kerry for that matter—could learn a thing or two from Hugo Chavez about winning the hearts and minds of the people.”

Benjamin could learn a thing or two about Chavez from her own fellow peace activists. Human Rights Watch has tracked the Chavez regime’s threat to press freedom and the murder of opposition leaders here. Militares Democráticos.

covers Chavez’s links to al Qaeda and more here. John Perazzo has more background on Code Pink’s dictator-loving gals here.

When will the mainstream media expose the lingerie-tossing ladies of Code Pink for what they really are? “Peace activists?” Bull. They’re cheerleaders for blood-spattered socialism, waving around their ideological underwear at the feet of Hugo Chavez like groupies at a Wayne Newton concert.

Gross.

Update: Mitch at Shot in the Dark recounted his conversation with one of Minnesota’s Code Pink bubbleheads here.

Update II: Erin O’Connor and her readers commented on the Venezuelan “election” here, with a link to an excellent piece by Thor Halvorssen.
