Cindy Sheehan, Jodie Evans, Venezuelaâ€™s Hugo Chavez and Medea Benjamin, January 28, 2006
Kristinn Taylor writes about the meeting.
A founding member of the campaign of Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois met in New York City Wednesday night with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Jodie Evans, who co-hosted Obama’s first major fundraiser in Hollywood in February 2007 just after Obama announced his candidacy and is a top fundraiser and donor to Obama’s campaign, led a delegation of leftist anti-American groups that held a private meeting near the United Nations. The stated purpose of the meeting was to “serve as an opening for diplomatic resolution” to prevent war between Iran and the United States.
The government of Iran is listed as a state sponsor of terrorism by the State Department and is strongly believed to be developing nuclear weapons.
Obama has stated that he would be willing to meet with Ahmadinejad and other enemies of the United States without conditions. Evans met with Obama in Beverly Hills last week at an exclusive $28,500 per person fundraiser. As a bundler for Obama, Evans is granted regular briefings with top Obama staff members and meeting with Obama and his vice presidential nominee Sen. Joe Biden of Delaware.
Obama has come under heavy criticism from military families and troops support organizations over his alliance with Evans.
Evans is co-founder of the pro-terrorist group Code Pink and works with state sponsors of terrorism to undermine America in the war on terror. She also has publicly announced her support for the terrorists in Iraq, her sympathy for Osama bin Laden and her “love” of Hugo Chavez.
Given Evans’ closeness to regular contacts with Obama and his campaign, it is fair to ask if she is acting as an intermediary for Obama.
Obama recently put his seal of approval on Evans’ attempt to storm the stage during the acceptance speech of Republican vice presidential nominee Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska when he welcomed her to his two Hollywood fundraisers last week, the exclusive $28,500 per person event and the $2500 per person event Barbra Streisand sang at the same evening.
Others attending the meeting with Ahmadinejad included anti-American activists who support the terrorists in Iraq and work anti-American governments: Medea Benjamin, Brian Becker, Leslie Cagan, Larry Holmes and Ramsey Clark.
Maybe Barry will appoint Evans as Ambassador to Iran or Venezuela should he be elected President. This is just another outrageous anti-American left-wing radical who is supporting and closely associated with Barack Obama.
The press release announcing the meeting is here.
The press release from Code Pink is here.
The CODEPINK women proposed inviting American and Iranian artists to build a â€œpeace parkâ€ in Tehran, a memorial dedicated to people-to-people commitment to peace and diplomacy between our two countries.
They also proposed a plan to invest funds in an Iranian business, one that produces green and sustainable products, such as bicycles. This grassroots investment would be the opposite of efforts by the Bush administration and Congress to tighten sanctions, a move which CODEPINK thinks would only hurt ordinary, everyday Iranians. Such a symbolic CODEPINK investment in a green, sustainable business would challenge U.S. regulations blocking trade with Iran and would show how diplomacy and trade are preferable to war and sanctions.
Bicycles and a “Peace Park” – Wow!
How about asking Ahmadinejad to stop providing weapons to kill American soldiers in Iraq or sending missiles to Hezbollah to fire against Israel?
No, this would be asking to much for these radical apologists.
Here are a few more photos of the Obama major fundraiser Jodie Evans who will be co-hosting “Voices for a Senate Majority” fundraiser to support Democrat senatorial candidates this coming Saturday.
We last saw Jodie Evans (left) and Medea Benjamin at the RNC where they tried to storm the stage during Governor Sarah Palin’s talk. They entered the arena using stolen identities of Republican delegates.
