Commercial Asks Berkeley to Apologize

Should Berkeley Apologize to the Marines?

The independent group Move America Forward just released a new commercial following last month's controversial city council decisions first to ban, then allow Marine recruiting centers in the city.

The commercial features a Marine, a military mother, and a veteran, all demanding an apology from the Berkeley City Council. Move America Forward's website also has a petition for the public to sign, asking for contrition. Reaction to the ad from the local community has been less than enthusiastic, with the University of California Berkeley's paper, The Daily Californian, calling the ad "pure comedy."

Should Berkeley apologize? Is this ad the way to make it happen?

I don't believe the council was representing their constituency. They should apologize, but it would be worthless. Anyone who is opposed to recruiters is de facto opposed to the military. That's like loving cake and hating bakers. I suggest we give Al Quaeda tickets directly into San Francisco airport. Then let them decide they're anti-Marine. Can you let Northern California secede separately from Southern California? I think they're even crazier than us down here in L.A.

Remedios we agree again! I would love it if Texas seceded! I be with 3M on that plane. And 3M like always I agree, more southern states would follow suite. Then I think people should break in and steal the Constitution since the USA is not using it anymore!

I want Texas to secede too! (I'd be on a plane first thing in the morning.) Additionally, I believe if Texas seceded, you'd find more states in the South pulling out? (What's with all these people pulling out lately?) Then you'd have a succession, one the North would not be able to stop this time.

I was at the protest, and really disgusted with the behavior of the "peace protesters". My father had just returned from Iraq and was wearing an Operation Iraqi Freedom t-shirt and was called a baby killer and jumped and wrapped in a banner by a group of those toe-chewing morons, including one of the founders, Medea something or other. I'm with cabaker, pull out the military and all federal funding. If they want their own republic to run into the ground they can have it. And if anyone is interested in hearing exactly what the city council said, take a look at this video: http://youtube.com/watch?v=dCXqYvJ0DaA It's a little far from "just representing their voters" or not wanting recruiters there (which in and of itself is borderline retarded and SO anti-choice).

"Whatever. If it were up to me I'd just let it cede from the union and cave in on itself." Man, I've been saying that about Texas for years.
