‘Big Oil’ Rescues ‘Big Moonbat’

This is even better than the time Alan Grayson got saved by military contractors.

Big Peace sets the stage:

Two women who traveled from Portland, Oregon to Cairo last week to participate in Code Pink’s latest Hamas-aid trip to Gaza ended up getting rescued by a big oil company–the kind Code Pink usually protests as killing the planet, when the leftist group isn’t hobnobbing with terrorists and undermining U.S. allies like Egypt.

This happened sometime at the end of January. The Oregonian has more details:

But Boyd, 55, was on a mission. With a girlfriend from Seattle, she planned to meet up in Cairo with members of Code Pink, a U.S.-based peace group, and then travel to Gaza to support Palestinian rights.
[...]
“My anxiety was getting out of control,” Boyd said. “It was so packed — a smash of humanity. You could feel all the tension, with all these people trying to get out of Egypt.”

They found a group of other Westerners and stayed with them. Turned out they were a group of Shell Oil employees who had chartered a flight out of Egypt.

In the end, the two women left Cairo on that flight to Amsterdam.

“We were treated like royalty,” Boyd said.

Shell put the two women up in a hotel in the Netherlands, where they plan to stay until Wednesday when they have a flight home.

They gladly accepted the help? So much for the courage of their convictions.

No doubt these two whiffle-brained irony magnets will be quickly reimbursing Shell because they’ll never be able to sleep at night knowing they’ve accepted blood money and favors from an evil oil company… right?

A couple of choice Code Pink oil protest photos are at this link. Warning: What has been seen cannot be unseen.
