Hippies + Guns = Banned Marines

Nick Provenzo of the Center for the Advancement of Capitalism reports that members of the City Council of Berkeley have decided to use their guns to keep U.S. Marine Corps recruiters out of the commune. Would that the U.S. military could cease defending Berkeley. It would make for a great reality TV show: “Hippies vs. Jihadis.” I’d watch.

While we probably can’t do that, we can make the commune more authentic, and thus let its members feel some just pain. Sign the petition at CMDC, and help isolate the commies from the vices of capitalism. Here’s the post from Mr. Provenzo:

Sign the Anti-Berkeley City Council Petition and Defend the Marines!

::Posted by Nicholas Provenzo at 9:48 AM

I’ve created an online petition in defense of the Marines against the resolutions of the City Council of Berkeley which declare that United States Marine Corps recruiters are “uninvited and unwelcome intruders” within Berkeley city limits and applaud those who choose to “impede” the Marines in their recruiting mission.

If you support holding the City Council accountable for its resolutions, you pledge not to conduct any business within the Berkeley city limits or patronize any company which has its headquarters within Berkeley. Furthermore, you signal your desire that the U.S. Congress and the California State Legislature suspend all federal and state payments that support any activity conducted by the Berkeley City Council until such time as the Council chooses to rescind its anti-Marine resolutions.

To sign the petition, click here.

Lastly, these things work best when they go viral. If you support the petition enough to add your name, don’t hesitate to share it with your friends.
