A Moron of Monumental Proportions
With the return to Crawford, Texas during the Thanksgiving holiday, anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan was presented a monument displaying the words “Sheehan’s Stand” as a tribute to her protests.
So, what has Mrs. Sheehan been doing since arriving outside of Bush’s Texas ranch last August? Her original motive – a second meeting with the president – has not occurred. However, the media had given her such grand coverage that her main goal has taken a back seat to her undeserved fame. It is no surprise, then, when most people who are outraged that Sheehan has not been able to speak with President Bush do not know the comments she made the first time they met.
Let me refresh your memory: Cindy Sheehan met with the George W. Bush at Fort Lewis in June of 2004. What words did she have for our president after the first meeting as reported by her local newspaper in Vacaville, California? “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.” She went on to say that the meeting brought about a sense of normalcy which was something “the president gave us, the gift of happiness, of being together.”
A year later, Sheehan’s account of the meeting had changed drastically. In an interview on CNN, a sympathetic president never appeared at the meeting. Rather, Bush “acted like it was a party” and "[Cindy’s family] wanted to use the time for him to know that he killed an indispensable part of our family and humanity. And we wanted him to look at the pictures of Casey.” After further questioning on the party comment, Cindy restated that “[Bush] came in very jovial, and like we should be happy that [Casey] died for his misguided policies.” Now, I have not heard such double talk since Kerry voted for the war before he voted against it!
Cindy Sheehan’s comments about her son being tricked into military duty are just plain lies. After serving his first term, Cindy’s son, Casey, actually re-enlisted in the U.S. Army voluntarily when he was 24-years-old. He was attached as a mechanic to the artillery division of the 1st U.S. Cavalry in Iraq and earned a Bronze Star. Perhaps Cindy’s grief has been so overwhelming that she cannot recount the facts correctly.
What makes this woman’s story even better is the fact that liberals allowed this woman to be their loudest spokesperson. No longer did she speak out solely about the war in Iraq. She used this newfound fame to comment on a wide range of issues. This lady is now an expert on everything from history to international diplomacy. Listening to this woman speak is basically hearing slapstick comedy. Let’s take a look at the vast knowledge of Cindy Sheehan verbalized:
Appearing at SFSU, Sheehan claimed that “[the administration is] not waging a War on Terror but a War of Terror,” and “the biggest terrorist is George W. Bush.” Furthermore, Sheehan spewed some anti-American vitriol, “We have no Constitution. We’re the only country with no checks and balances…Let George Bush send his two little party animals to die in Iraq. It’s OK for Israel to have nuclear weapons but we are waging nuclear war in Iraq, we have contaminated the entire country. It’s not OK for Syria to be in Lebanon. Hypocrites! But Israel can occupy Palestine? Stop the slaughter!” It is good to see such a scholar on American history who truly knows how our government system operates. Yea, lady, next you are going to agree with the former Canadian Minister of Defence’s statements that the Bush administration is allowing the military to build a base on the moon, “to keep track of the goings and comings of the visitors from space, and to shoot at them.” Get ready for intergalactic war everybody! Isn’t that right, Cindy?
One comment jammed in between her statements on the U.S. Constitution and Israel is disturbing: “Let George Bush send his two little party animals to die in Iraq.” Now, I thought Cindy was this loving, sweet, caring mother who speaks for the sake of children. So much for that image.
It is amazing that the main stream media chooses to ignore certain comments. During the same SFSU speech, Sheehan proclaimed that “America has been killing people on this continent since it was started. This country is not worth dying for...” Does this comment need justification? I certainly think so, but her lunacy reaches new levels every time she opens her obnoxious mouth. During Hurricane Katrina, Sheehan cried for the National Guardsmen to be brought back from Iraq because they needed to fill in the void left in New Orleans. Yet, a couple weeks later, Sheehan posted this statement on Michael Moore’s website:
“George Bush needs to stop talking, admit the mistakes of his all around failed administration, pull our troops out of occupied New Orleans and Iraq, and excuse his self from power. The only way America will become more secure is if we have a new administration that cares about Americans even if they don’t fall into the top two percent of the wealthiest.”
Make up your mind Mrs. Sheehan! I don’t think she realizes the stupidity of her comments. Either that, or she suffers from short-term memory loss. The liberals in Congress slowly realized that Cindy Sheehan had worn out her welcome after she lambasted the “war hawk” Hillary Clinton. With her comments directed towards favorite liberals, Mrs. Sheehan quickly lost most of the venues that had been so freely bestowed upon her. The proof can be seen with the latest rally attempt in Crawford with Mrs. Sheehan and company managing to garner only two hundred people. Yet, there are still some nutcases that are calling for her to run for Senate or possibly the presidency. I don’t know what is more hilarious, the thought of Cindy Sheehan trying to run our country or Geena Davis’ attempts. At least, Hillary Clinton has already been there!
It is sad to see how Mrs. Sheehan has hurt her son’s noble cause in our military. I truly feel sorry for her loss, yet the exploitation of her son has hurt her credibility enormously. Her husband filed for divorce and members of her family produced a statement that disagreed with the way she has publicly promoted her own personal agenda. The venue for political dissent should always be allowed in our great country, yet Cindy Sheehan has crossed the line with her reckless comments in the name of Casey Sheehan. I suppose the monument given to Cindy with the words “Sheehan’s Stand” was expected to draw parallels with Custer’s last stand. If these people did their homework, they would have recalled that Custer died in the Battle of the Little Bighorn and suffered a major defeat. But, we all know Cindy Sheehan has never been known for fact-checking.
And with her recent book flop (see: Cindy waits), Sheehan is going to continue to fade from public view. It's about time people realize what a moonbat she really is. You might as well let a 3rd grader lead the charge against the war!
