Will the Real Cindy Please Stand Up
Will the real Cindy Sheehan please stand up? I swear it's getting harder every day to weave through the tangled drama the left wing media is trying to weave.
Is Cindy an angry & grieving mom, trying to spare other families the pain she feels? Is she a rabid left wing nut using her patriotic son's death as a bully pulpit for her anti-Semitic bilge? Is she a naive and gullible tool of the "we hate Bush" liberals like Joe Trippi & Michael Moore?
Since it is impossible to criticize or analyze Cindy's motives and actions without being branded and demonized as an uncaring war-monger by her adoring fans let's just let Cindy, and her supporters, speak for themselves.Cindy Sheehan:
...he was killed for lies and for a PNAC Neo-Con agenda to benefit Israel. My son joined the Army to protect America, not Israel. Am I stupid? No, I know full-well that my son, my family, this nation, and this world were betrayed by George [W.] Bush who was influenced by the neo-con PNAC agenda after 9/11. David Duke, racist Klansman and politician
, Aug 14th: Courageously she has gone to Texas near the ranch of President Bush and braved the elements and a hostile Jewish supremacist media to demand a meeting with him and a good explanation why her son and other’s sons and daughters must die and be disfigured in a war for Israel rather than for America. ... Her son was betrayed and his life lost by government officials who treasonably created and continue a war for Israel and the Jewish supremacist agenda rather than that of the United States.More from Duke in response to a patriotic mom: Her son was killed because our leaders lied to us. He died because they are servants of the pervasive Jewish supremacist power in American politics and media. ... This is because the whole world knows (everybody but US citizens who are under the control of Jewish media) that the war was unjust, based on lies, and was orchestrated by the Jewish Neocons who have loyalty to Israel over America. Cindy Sheehan is courageous enough to sacrifice her reputation, her privacy, strong enough to endure being savaged by the Zionist warmongers in the media in this country ... The Jewish-dominated, pro-Israel media has done an effective job of conflating patriotism with a war for a foreign nation ...
(Please go to the links to read all his garbage. It was taking up way too much of this post!)Cindy to Keith Olbermann on CNN: ...if [Bush] would come out right now, it would really defuse the momentum, and I don't want to give them any hints.
(So, she doesn't really want to talk to Bush. She doesn't really want answers. She wants to stay in the spotlight.)More Cindy: You get America out of Iraq and Israel out of Palestine and you'll stop the terrorism.
That lying bastard, George Bush, is taking a five-week vacation in time of war. You get that maniac out here to talk with me in person.
The other thing I want him to tell me is 'just what was the noble cause Casey died for?' Was it freedom and democracy? Bull***t! He died for oil. He died to make your friends richer. He died to expand American imperialism in the Middle East.
It’s okay for Israel to occupy Palestine, but it’s – yeah – and it’s okay for Iraq to occupy – I mean, for the United States to occupy Iraq, but it’s not okay for Syria to be in Lebanon. They’re a bunch of f***ing hypocrites!
I was raised in a country by a public school system that taught us that America was good, that America was just. America has been killing people, like my sister over here says, since we first stepped on this continent, we have been responsible for death and destruction. I passed on that bull***t to my son and my son enlisted. I’m going all over the country telling moms: This country is not worth dying for.
9/11 was their Pearl Harbor to get their neo-con agenda through and, if I would have known that before my son was killed, I would have taken him to Canada. I would never have let him go and try and defend this morally repugnant system we have.
