Code Pink Activists Protest Outside Republican Jewish Coalition Dinner

Code Pink activists protest outside a celebratory Republican Jewish Coalition dinner held in Washington D.C. Their message:

  • Money out of politics!
  • Free Palestine!
  • Diplomacy with Iran!

On Tuesday, January 6th, CODEPINK protested outside of The Capital Grille where the Republican Jewish Coalition held a schmoozy dinner to celebrate the Senate Republican majority and to discuss America’s cozy relationship with Israel in 2015. Guests included Republican Senator to Arizona and former POW John McCain, former US Vice President Dick Cheney and the 10th richest man in the world, Sheldon Adelson, who almost single-handedly funds right-wing Israeli politics in Washington and is a major proponent of ending nuclear talks with Iran.

    Well, this group meeting puts to rest that stereotype that all Jewish people are Democrats.

    If only we could quit using Rep vs, Dem. maybe something would get accomplished. Religion and Politics are also like oil and vinegar. I think we need to stop putting labels on everybody and everything.

      Yes! It’s that old divide and conquer strategy, and we seem always to discuss our differences instead of talking about the real issues. That’s why I like Ralph Nader’s idea of left-right coalitions, which he wrote about in his book ‘Unstoppable.’
