Code Pink Protesters Disrupt Donald Rumsfeld Event at Richard Nixon Presidential Library: Video

Categories: Politics

Rumsfeld can't get any Code Pink love
Former Republican Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has his fans and his enemies--and then there are the energetic members of Code Pink, the self-described "women-initiated grassroots peace-and-social-justice movement working to end U.S.-funded wars and occupations."

Code Pink doesn't want Rumsfeld to forget that as an architect of the Iraq invasion to pursue Saddam Hussein after Osama bin Laden orchestrated the 9-11 terrorist attacks from Afghanistan, he promised the diversion into Iraq would last no more than "six weeks."

That monumental screw-up helps to fuel Code Pink members to chase Rumsfeld around the country when he makes public appearances, and last night in Yorba Linda was no different.

Code Pink members disrupted the event to sell Rummy's latest book, Rumsfeld's Rules, at the Richard M. Nixon Presidential Library.

"The ends don't justify the means," one member yelled, winning hearty boos and a security escort out.

Another member followed up by shouting, "Rumsfeld lied; people died!"

That man, too, was booed, told to "shut up" and forced to leave, while a female videographer put a signature on the protest: "Code Pink! Code Pink! Code Pink!"

Here's a brief Youtube video of the protest:

And to show you the everlasting determination of Code Pink to hound Rumsfeld, here is a more intense May 2009 confrontation in Washington, D.C., at the White House Correspondents' Dinner:

When white older American woman are stalking you everywhere you go in the US because of some perceived wrongdoing,  it usually means you've done something wrong. 


This man will be either tried for war crimes or have these ladies screaming in his face till the day he dies. Lose-lose if you ask me.

Some people have entirely too much time on their hands. Imagine how much better place the world would be if these "protesters" did something productive with all the time they spend hating other successful people and filling the world with their negativity.


It sounds like you're talking about yourself. Take your own advice, troll.


@vegandawg23 Yes, Rumsfeld is "successful" in that he's responsible for the deaths of thousands in a war BASED ON LIES!  He belongs in prison!

@OCNative @vegandawg23 I don't disagree. However that's up to a grand jury to decide not a bunch of unemployed losers with too much time on their hands.
