Protesters from Opposing Sides Chant at President Obama in San Francisco

October 12, 2014

President Obama was met with protests from two groups with starkly opposing ideologies on the war as he prepared to head into his only scheduled fundraiser in San Francisco on Friday afternoon.  The chants ranged from “Stop ISIS, save Kobani” to “Obama, Obama, you can’t hide, we charge you with genocide,” as the opposing groups chimed in together in hopes of getting their messages across to POTUS. At the W Hotel in the South Market Street area, Obama addressed a partisan crowd consisting of approximately 200 Democrats in a 15-minutes speech that blamed Republicans for inhibiting his efforts to rev up the economy and help working families.  San Francisco residents opposed to the war, including a group of Code Pinkers, shouted over a loudspeaker their disapproval and disappointment with how Obama has handled the situation in the Middle East. Code Pink members held up signs which read “stop killer drones” and “peace,” according to the San Francisco Chronicle. A replica drone was reportedly even set up by the protesters. “I expected Obama to be a peaceful person,” said Nancy Manicas, 44, who was accompanied by Bobbie Raymond, 86. Both individuals told the Chronicle that they have been part of the antiwar Code Pink group since 2003.
