Peace Mom or Radical America Hater?
Right now the person in America enjoying her 15 minutes way too much is Cindy Sheehan. I have kept from writing about this person for the first 14 minutes and even had a big argument with my mother over her, but I cannot keep it in anymore.
Why does the left-wing fully embrace crackpots? Why not check out their latest leader in Bush bashing first before anointing he or she the leader of the anti-war movement or the "no WMD" bean spiller? If the left wing wanted any credibility, it would stop frothing at the mouth and think before trotting out poor souls who will say anything for adulation.
The latest lunatic liberals and the media try to give credibility to is running on 14:30 of her 15 minutes. The "peace mom" sure doesn't sound like a peaceful person at all. Judging from her soundbites, you would think she's a regular dinner guest of Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro. Or maybe, the PR spokesperson for Saddam Hussein or Osama bin Laden. Among Ms. Sheehan's peace talk:
"George Bush murdered my son." - Not the terrorist that shot him, the President himself killed him somehow.
Oh wait, her son..."wasn't killed by terrorists. He was killed by Shiite militia." Funny, she gives credibility to the people who killed her own son as a legit army.
"George Bush is the world's biggest terrorist." - Not Osama bin Laden, who was "allegedly" behind the 9/11 attacks, in her words.
"The US Government is a morally repugnant system." - No word on the Ba'athist system of government.
"America is not worth dying for." - It's a shame that many people have died for this woman's right to speak out against them.
Anyway, you get the gist. The woman is entitled to her opinion, but it is the blatant lies that are taken as fact from the mainstream media is what really makes me sick:
"The military recruiter misled Casey to enlist." I guess he was still misled when he re-enlisted.
"I say my son died for LIES. George Bush LIED to us and he knew he was LYING. The Downing Street Memos dated 23 July, 2002 prove that he knew that Saddam didn't have WMD's or any ties to Al Qaeda. I believe that George lied and he knew he was lying." - This one is a doozy. Her son re-enlisted in 2004, well after it was reported that there were no WMDs and this memo surfaced. Her son did not re-enlist in the military because of WMD lies.
But it is this one that should have alerted the left wing not to take this person seriously:
Cindy, 2004: "I now know he's sincere about wanting freedom for the Iraqis, I know he's sorry and feels some pain for our loss. And I know he's a man of faith."
"That was the gift the president gave us, the gift of happiness, of being together."
Cindy, 2005: "He wouldn't look at the pictures of Casey. He didn't even know Casey's name. He came in the room and the very first thing he said is, "So who are we honoring here?" He didn't even know Casey's name. He didn't want to hear it. He didn't want to hear anything about Casey. He wouldn't even call him 'him' or 'he.' He called him 'your loved one.'"
Ok, so now we know who the real liar is and I'm going to end this post. I want to pity this person, but find it so hard to. I really wonder what will happen to her when the final minute of her 15 minutes of fame runs out and her left-wing friends abandon her like so many of her family members have. What will become of her then? She'll have to live the rest of her lonely days knowing that she spit on her own son's grave for a small period of fame. Talk about selling your soul.
