It turns out the whacktivists with Code Pink can’t be ignored into oblivion.
With nothing left to protest in the liberal-led House of Representatives these days, the anti-war activists headed over to the abandoned Venezuelan embassy in Washington, D.C. and reclaimed it for embattled socialist President Nicolas Maduro.
Doing what they do best, the pink-clad ladies have made a nuisance of themselves since illegally trespassing and refusing to relinquish the property back to the country and interim President Juan Guaidó.
Last week, Guaidó’s supporters clashed with the Code Pink socialists on the property, forcing the Secret Service to shut down 30th Street in the nation’s Capital.
U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton has now intervened, calling on Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to remove the Code Pink protestors.
“It is an injustice to the Venezuelan people that they are unable to enter their embassy because this group of American extremists is preventing their access. Just this week, Ambassador Carlos Vecchio spoke in front of the embassy to supporters but was unable to enter despite being recognized by the United States as the legitimate Ambassador from Venezuela…
…I respectfully urge that the Venezuelan Embassy be returned to the Venezuelan people and the legitimate government of Venezuela led by interim President Juan Guaidó as soon as possible, and that those who have been illegally occupying the embassy face the full consequences of their actions under the law.”
Seriously, turn off the electricity and water, and block anyone from entering to bring them food. They’re bound to run out of granola bars and k-cup coffee within a few days.
At least the activists have shown us what we’ve believed all along, they’re not a peaceful group seeking social justice, but a radical, socialist organization.
