AP portrays "Vindictive" GOP over Berkeley Protests

Berkeley's anti-Marines declaration effort to strip federal funds

(AP)-"A move to strip Berkeley institutions of federal funds is going forward in Congress in retaliation for last week's City Council vote telling the U.S. Marines they weren't welcome in town... The bills would take away $2 million in federal funding from UC Berkeley and a local foundation that provides lunches to the Berkeley Unified School District."

AP doesn't report that these "federal funds" are actually hidden earmarks introduced by Democrat Senator Barbara Boxer. They use federal money to finance special eco-friendly gourmet lunches to the schools and other pet projects. US Senator DeMint

(Senator DeMint)..."The bill would rescind over $2 million in hidden earmarks for Berkeley, California in the 2008 Omnibus Appropriations bill, and transfer the funds to the Marine Corps... One earmark provides $243,000 in taxpayer dollars for the organization Chez Panisse to create gourmet organic school lunches in the Berkeley School District. Chez Panisse is dedicated to “environmental harmony” and their menu features “Comté cheese soufflé with mâche salad,” “Meyer lemon éclairs with huckleberry coulis,” and “Chicory salad with creamy anchovy vinaigrette and olive toast.” Another earmark would spend $975,000 in taxpayer dollars for the University of California in Berkeley Matsui Center for Politics and Public Service, to create a new endowment and cataloging the papers of Congressman Robert Matsui. U.C. Berkeley currently already has a $3.5 billion endowment."

Senator Boxer responds, Don't punish the children! But AP also doesn't report exactly what the City Council did. DeMint notes that the city actually called the Marines “uninvited and unwelcome intruders” as they demanded they leave. The city gave the radical group Code Pink free parking outside the recruitment office and urged them to “impede, passively or actively” the Marine Corps. That group went on to deface the office, chaining themselves to the doors for 7 hours, and even scuffling with the Marines.
