Code Pink Activists Cheer For Kerry on Iran, Crash Ted Cruz’s Rally

Code Pink Activists Cheer For Kerry on Iran, Crash Ted Cruz’s Rally

Considering how the anti-war group Code Pink: Women for Peace have a history for heckling political speeches and interrupting committees, it was unusual to see them cheering for John Kerry. The surprising support shown in these pictures indicate that Kerry’s testimony on the Iran deal was not exclusively met with disapproval, having been told by Bob Corker and James E. Risch that Kerry was “fleeced” and “bamboozled” by the Iranians:
Later, the activist group went back to their usual character when they shouted down Ted Cruz‘s anti-Iran rally outside the White House. Cruz was saying that America’s greatest current priority was in stopping “this catastrophic Iran nuclear deal,” when protesters and supporters began having scuffles and shouting matches amongst each other.

After one of the protesters pulled out a loudspeaker and attendees began to shove signs into each others faces, Cruz halted his speech and remarked, “It’s very interesting to see those who profess to believe in free speech are afraid of speech.” One protester responded by calling Cruz a “war monger” and asked him, “why are you so aggressively violent?”

In the end, Cruz asked the protesters to quite down by inviting one of their own onto the stage to debate him right then and there. Representative and co-founder Medea Benjamin took the field, where she and Cruz began argue over whether the deal would place billions of dollars into the hands of jihadis, or whether the deal would secure a peaceful nuclear agreement.

You can see a video from Cruz’s rally here:
