Another heartwarming tale from Code Pink

| March 7, 2014


The other day we reported that poor Medea Benjamin (born Susan Benjamin) was detained in Cairo airport and held overnight in a cell before she was deported to Turkey. She sends us an email today describing her terrible (yet, somehow delicious) treatment;

Just the other day I hopped on a plane to Egypt, eager to join the international delegation of 100 women headed to Gaza for International Womenā€™s Day. Little did I know I would be stopped at the Cairo airport, detained, held overnight in a cell, then in the morning brutally assaulted by Egyptian authorities. They threw me to the ground, stomped on my back, handcuffed me so tightly they dislocated my shoulder, and then deported me to Turkey.

Now the Egyptian authorities are blocking most of the remaining delegates from entering Egypt and traveling to Gaza. It has been frustrating and disappointing for us, but we cannot forget that almost two million Palestinians remained trapped in Gaza while the Egyptian Rafah border remains closed or tightly controlled.

What happened to me was traumatizing, but is minor compared to what Egyptian activists are going through, including women. Thousands of peaceful Egyptian demonstrators have been killed or jailed by the Military Junta since the July 2013 military coup.

See, some Egyptian official got to do what the rest of us would like to do to her. And he got paid to do it. Other reports are that she was dragged through the airport to her flight by her arm across the floor like luggage without the casters. I’m sorry there are no pictures of that spectacle. Of course, we know why she was mistreated by the police; she thought that the Egyptians were restrained by law from treating her like that.

See, that’s what happens when you want to engage in unlawful activities – you get treated like a criminal. I’m sure she misses her Muslim Brotherhood buddies.

    What is that line about stupid human tricks? Too bad they let her go so soon.

  2. B Woodman says:

    BWHAHAHAHAHAHA! I would have paid a good paycheck for tickets to a ringside seat to that. And here she bitches and moans about American morality (except hers, of course).
    And then when she gets treated different by a different overseas culture, she’s surprised?
    She is the embodiment of provincialism.

    Bring on the folding chairs, popcorn, and cold brewskies. I’m looking forward to Round Two in the Benjamin vs The Rest of The World rematch.

  3. Kinda old ET1 says:

    How I’d love to see a video of that harpy being dragged through the airport, it would warm my heart so.

  4. Ex-PH2 says:

    She sent an e-mail? And you read it?

    Do you need some brain bleach? I have the large economy size in the laundry room.

  5. AW1 Tim says:

    I had a personal encounter with her back during the Gathering of Eagles affair in DC.

    It was both sad & amusing but the best part was when she lied to the cops and they told her to get lost. To keep walking and not let them see her in the area again.

    Her eyes were aflame with that challenge, but when she saw the numbers arranged against her she turned tail and walked away. I was hoping she was going to stay put, because one of the cops was reaching for his cuffs and two others for their pepper spray. šŸ™‚

  6. NR Pax says:

    The officer who did that to her should be brought to the US so we can give him as many free drinks as he can handle while he tells us this story over and over again.

  7. Sapper3307 says:

    A job worth doing right well done Egypt.

  8. Old Trooper says:

    Let’s see; she hides behind the very Marines she is protesting for protection in San Franfreako, because her bucket mouth got her thimble ass in trouble, again. Then, she goes to Israel and protests the Israeli government on Israeli soil and can’t understand why she’s being treated the way she is. Then, she goes to Egypt to stir up trouble and thinks she was roughed up and traumatized? The little snowflake has no idea what getting really roughed up is all about. I got worse wrestling with my cousins. One of these days, she’s going to get into real trouble and her pink attired screeching harpies, and I’m talking about the men as well as the women, aren’t going to be around to help her, not that any of them would have the intestinal fortitude to do so, anyway.

  9. A Proud Infidelā„¢ says:

    I CAN’T WAIT to hear what happens to her next. I was hoping she’d piss the wrong person off while on Turkish soil and end up in one of their jails!! Regardless, HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA……

    • OldSoldier54 says:

      Ooo, Oooo. Sort of a Midnight Cowgirl thing!?

      • 68W58 says:

        Well, I’d object to you using the term “cowgirl” in reference to Madea, but I broke out the brain bleach material below, so I’ll only note that it was “Midnight Express” that was set in a Turkish prison, not “Midnight Cowboy”.

  10. islandofmisfittoys says:

    It is funny how her story changed constantly, first it was they just broke her arm and that was before the airport. Somehow she was on Twitter while being detained and while claiming ot have her arm broken managed to type. That morphed to now the dislocated shoulder. Most of it seemed to be a case of hey look at me, someone please pay attention to me, hey over here.

    • The Other Whitey says:

      Methinks the bitch doth protest too much. No deformity or discoloration of the affected shoulder, no obvious pain, her clothes are clean, and she’s holding something with the affected arm. The halfass sling she’s wearing is not and would not properly support an injured arm. I’m calling bullshit on her injury claims.

      Looks to me more like she wanted to embellish her story, so she tied a piss-poor attempt at a sling and stuck her arm through it, then started tossing around fantasies about how the wonderful Middle Eastern progressives were so MEAN to her. Given her track record with the truth, that looks and sounds about right.

      Too bad it’s fake. This two-faced hippy bitch really has it coming.

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        That isn’t a sling. It’s a scarf she knotted and threw around her neck. It’s positioned improperly and will doubtless give her a luxated cervical vertebra, which will lead to severed arthritis and shooting pains in her lower jaw. One can only hope.

  11. MGySgtRet says:

    The very best part is the total lack of self awareness. She goes to a foreign country, and arrogantly expects the same protections that she receives in the U.S. I remember when I was that ignorant about how the world worked. I think I was 13.

    Hey dipshit, here is a clue. Nobody cares about your fucking woman’s day gathering of the Harpies. If it is worth you getting killed over, drive the fuck on. In fact, I encourage that….

  12. OWB says:

    Couldn’t happen to a more deserving skank.

  13. A Proud Infidelā„¢ says:

    She just looks like the most precious of snowflakes with the fake sling, flowers, and the “PLEEEASE feeew sowwy fooww meeee” look on her face, I hope she/it keeps running around in that part of the world pissing people off at her/it, she’ll find out what hell is!! Maybe she/it could get more Airport types or LEO’s pissed off at her, then she could get a body cavity search from a big-handed, sadistic Proctologist with piss-poor depth perception! That, or she REAALY gets the wrong people pissed at her, and it’s *poof!* she’ll suddenly disappear off the face of the Earth, it happens a lot over there!

  14. Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

    Right to free speech — Protected Under the US Constitution

    Right to assemble — Protected Under the US Constitution

    Right to be treated like a human while being arrested — written into law throughout the US and honored for most protesters…

    Watching some asshole protester who thinks the rest of the world works the same as the United State get her ass beat for running her mouth in a 3rd world shithole?

    Priceless, indeed…..

    Now if she can just press on her shoulders that gentle popping sound will be her head clearing her 4 corner contact and she might, just might be able to actually understand that most of the world sucks total ass and be grateful for having won the lottery by being born in the US of A…

    • MGySgtRet says:

      Well said VOV!

    • A Proud Infidelā„¢ says:

      AMEN, VOV!

    • jonp says:

      You would have thought that the treatment her little dog and pony show got in Pakistan would have opened her eyes a little but the media whore loves the limelight too much

      • Roger in Republic says:

        It’s gonna be awful tough to bask in that limelight when she is laying in a shallow hole with a face full of dirt. If she keeps screwing around in the Arab world I’m afraid that’s what she can look forward to. I know I do.

  15. 68W58 says:

    Rough treatment by swarthy men in an exotic setting, I’m thinking “50 shades of Code Pink” and that Madea will keep trying to get herself “arrested”.

  16. jerry920 says:

    Surprised that her sling isn’t a black and white keffiyeh.

  17. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    “They threw me to the ground, stomped on my back, handcuffed me so tightly they dislocated my shoulder, and then deported me to Turkey.” As a rule, people don’t get thrown to the ground by police. They are taken down, usually after failing to disobey repeated verbal commands or physically resisting. Also, handcuffs that are too tight may stem blood flow and may cause numbness. They will not dislocate one’s shoulder. Lastly, I can’t help but wonder whether she was truly deported, in the legal sense. Other than those things, I’m sure her account was 100% accurate.

    • jonp says:

      That would be American Police. Egyptian Police operate under different rules. If your handcuffed behind your back and picked up chicken wing both shoulders could be dislocated. Too bad it wasn’t her mouth that was dislocated.

  18. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    Oh, I forgot the back stomping she claims. One who is taken down by police can expect a knee in the back until the cuffs are secure. If she had been stomped, her Twiggy butt would be in a full cast.

  19. PigmyPuncher says:

    Medea Susan Benjamin, do not despair. This is a golden opportunity to show the world what Code Pink is all about. You should either make a stand in Turkey, or spread your message in Crimea. Our diplomats there will protect your free speech rights! Go now, quickly, before the media looses interest! /sarc

    Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

  20. Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

    2/17 Air Cav, well it’s Egypt not NYC….so I am not expecting any stellar training programs…Egypt was last a real going concern when the Romans had an empire…not so much since then…

  21. Green Thumb says:

    Some people will never get it.

    • Roger in Republic says:

      No, but some good ol’ Hickory Shampoo sometimes helps them to see the light.

  22. Sparks says:


    Love it. Wish they had detained her longer and dislocated the other shoulder. Although taking her word for it, she could just be all bull shit and the sling is for sympathy.

    Anyway, I am starting my day feeling good!

    Side note. It is just me or are all the Code Pink and feminazis type gals just butt ass ugly or what? I think, personally, they are trying to over compensate for the lack of ability to draw men into their lives and no dates in high school. They are still bitter about the Prom you know.

    • streetsweeper says:

      She’s looked like that since the first time I laid on eyes on her way back in to 70’s in good ol SF…

      • Old Trooper says:

        Wait a minute; you knew of her back in the 70’s?? What was she protesting then/

        • Jonn Lilyea says:

          Here’s a heartwarming update to the heartwarming tale;

          Egypt deports 100 Gaza-bound female activists

          • A Proud Infidelā„¢ says:

            If they made it to the Gaza Strip, I wonder just how quickly the male Paleoswinians would beat them for trying to boss men around and not wearing hijabs or burkhas?

        • streetsweeper says:

          O.T.- Didn’t know her at all but recognized her from anti-war protests at the Presido of San Fran a few times. She was one of those that didn’t stand out action wise plenty voacl but when someone looks as plain and dour as she does you tend to not forget the face.

  23. Toasty Coastie says:

    Hmmm…She looks mighty clean for having “spent” a night in jail, and for someone having been “stomped in the back and having her shoulder dislocated” she seems to be in fine spirits.

    Wonder who took the picture and gave her flowers?

    • streetsweeper says:

      Her um…guy pal, Tighe or however he fruiting spells it. Nice sling there Medea, shoulda wrapped it a bit tighter around yaw neck though. *whistling*

  24. Toasty Coastie says:

    Hmmm…She looks mighty clean for having “spent” a night in jail, and for someone having been “stomped in the back and having her shoulder dislocated” she seems to be in fine spirits.

    Wonder who took the picture and gave her flowers.

  25. Toasty Coastie says:

    OOPs..sorry for the double… šŸ™

  26. Combat Historian says:

    My heart is happily warmed as I form the mental picture in my mind of the little pink proggie princess being “brutally assaulted” by Egyptian police, hehehe…

    • Bobo says:

      Somehow I have a feeling that she would consider a stearnly worded e-mail from the Egyptian border authority being “brutally assaulted.”

  27. jonp says:

    Detained in Egypt then deported to Turkey? I’m sure there is a joke in there somewhere.
    I hear Pakistan loves Code Pink, she should have been sent there and besides I had no idea Code Pink was still around. The media lovefest seems to have deserted them

    • Hondo says:

      Wonder if the flight that took her to Turkey left during the middle of the night and was called the “Midnight Express” . . . . (smile)

    • ghp95134 says:

      I think the joke was:

      If Russia assaults Turkey from behind, would Greece reduce the friction?

      or something like that.

      Code Pink? Oh, yeah — I remember their shennagins in Bezerkely protesting against the USMC. But I’m from an older generation — I prefer having a mental picture of Jane Fonda being “brutalized” by Egyptian police …



  28. jonp says:

    Where do we donate to the Egyptian Police Benevolent Society

  29. streetsweeper says:

    YO! Suzie! Thats one funky looking “sling” you are wearing there, dummy! Too bad they didn’t toss you under a prison instead of deporting your worthless skank ass. Stay in Turkey for a while, I hear DC law enforcement needs a break from mOrOns like you anyway.

  30. Medic09 says:

    These twits should all thank the Egyptians for saving their lives. Can you imagine the welcome Ms. Benjamin would have received from Hamas, if she and pals had been allowed to travel on?

    As a btw, I’d like to know how she compares the treatment she got in Israel and Egypt. Israel is a Western-style democracy. They had some restraint. In Egypt I think they have no restraints after putting on the restraints.

  31. BNG says:

    That picture was taken downstairs at Dulles (baggage claim level). I think that Starbucks is down at the Intl arrival end.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      I thought that looked like an American airport, too. What did she do, fake the whole trip? That would not surprise me.

  32. SGT Ted says:

    Her picture pose is all political theater.

    That’s how leftists roll.

  33. streetsweeper says:

    Hopefully Ann Wright was caught up in that sweep, too.

  34. streetsweeper says:

    And I’ll bet a six pack of Budweiser this is the real reason why they were there in the first place.

    • A Proud Infidelā„¢ says:

      It’s almost a pity they didn’t make it to the Gaza Strip where they could easily have disappeared off the face of the Earth. Who’s gonna miss a batch of smelly-assed liberals anyway?

  35. Chips81 says:

    Does the Name Lara Logan ring a bell. Maybe this Benjamin Bitch should ask her what being brutally assaulted is really like! She should thank her lucky God Damned Stars that it was the Egyptian Police and not “Protesters” that “Brutally Assaulted” her.

  36. Grimmy says:

    I seem to recall a bit of rumor that Code Pink raised a half mil in cash donations and sent said monies to the Glorious Freedom Fighters of Fallujah while our Marines and Soldiers were engaged in fighting same.

    I do wish someone with the best type research skills would look into that. If it’s true, then aint that actual treason?

    • AKM guy says:

      YES, it is TREASON [AIDING AND ABETTING AN ENEMY OF THE COUNTRY]. I would love to watch this bitch be hung on the gallows and let her little pinky friends watch as she shits her pants when her neck snaps!! LOL!!

  37. Cargosquid says:

    “Code Pink delivered $600,000 in cash and supplies to the very insurgents the Marines had been fighting against – quite literally giving aid and comfort to America’s enemies in a time of war. As noted in Islam Online, a diplomatic courtesy letter from Barbara Boxer helped make the trip possible.” From Gateway Pundit

    (Media Matters) In fact, the Islam Online article cited by Swett notes that the $600,000 raised by Code Pink, military family members and other organizations was for “humanitarian aid to the refugees of the war-torn city of Fallujah,” not insurgents.

    From Media Matters…so you know that its an “approved” site by the media.

    Of course, we all know that the refugees of Fallujah were the families of the terrorists still IN Fallujah and money is fungible….so yes…this was aiding and abetting…..

    Notice…the left doesn’t deny that Boxer or Code Pink actually arranged the money…they just differ on the definition of aiding and abetting…..
