Communists and IslamoFascist sympathizers from the City Council in Berkeley, CA, who want the U.S. Marines office out of their city are extending the welcome rug to the Gitmo terrorists. Code Pinkos are getting all wet just thinking about it.
Gee, the Code Pinkos can get the terrorists to join them in their daily protests of the Marine Corp Recruiting office in Berkeley.
“Our hearts are with all those people who were never tried, held for years and in some cases tortured,” said Wendy Kenin, chairwoman of the city’s Peace and Justice Commission, which crafted the resolution. “As a municipality, this is one thing we can do to right some wrongs of our federal government.”
Of the 38 detainees who have been cleared, Berkeley would invite two: a Russian ballet dancer and an Algerian who was a top-rated Italian chef in Austria. (Yes, make sure the gay terrorists have a home) The two would move to Berkeley and live with local families. Nonprofits would help them find work and generally integrate into life in the East Bay. (Or let them live on welfare like most Muslim immigrants do)
The plan, however, could hit a roadblock with the Department of Defense. The Ike Skelton National Defense Authorization Act of 2011, signed by President Obama on Jan. 7, prohibits the United States from funding the relocation of cleared detainees.
That leaves the detainees in limbo. They have no passports, no visas, no money and no jurisdiction that wants them – except for Berkeley and a few cities in Massachusetts that have passed similar resolutions. They can’t return to their native countries for fear of harassment or torture. (Sure, their own countries won’t have them but the libturds in Berkeley want them to live in proximity of their own children)
Berkeley’s newest residents would include Djamel Ameziane, an Algerian chef who worked at an upscale Italian restaurant in Vienna. After his work visa was not renewed, he went to Canada but was not granted asylum.(Gee I wonder why not?) Feeling he had few places left to go, he moved to Afghanistan but was arrested while crossing into Pakistan in 2002.
The other favored detainee is Ravil Mingazov, a ballet dancer who converted to Islam while serving in the Russian Army. To escape harassment from the KGB, he moved to Afghanistan and then Pakistan, where he was arrested while staying in a house with other Muslim refugees.
“Berkeley has a long history of being welcoming and generous to
oppressed (liberals,communists, and Islamistst, the dregs of society) people,” said commissioner Phoebe Sorgen. “We know times are tough. We’re not asking for any money. We’d rely on volunteers and donations.”
City Manager Phil Kamlarz has advised the council to take no action on the Guantanamo detainees. City Councilman Gordon Wozniak said the city has enough problems without taking on the plight of terror suspects.
