The MSM has been abuzz with how Cindy Sheehan, the moonbats’ “Peace Mama” is apparently stepping down from her self-appointed role as Supreme Badgerer of the President and even going as far as to say that she has “given up on America”.
For your convenience, I’ve linked to her “diary” over at the DailyKo(mmunist)s - as it seems that trying to find it from within that great hive-mind of moonbattery took a bit of effort.
One would think that such a story would be on the front page, but perhaps the KosKidz want to keep their celebrity’s pratfalls under wraps, or there was a certain possibility of the “Slashdot Effect” pounding Kos’s servers into submission - although not many of the MSM sites reporting this story cared to dig out any links to Kos, much less Sheehan’s “Kos-diary”
Here are a few interesting tidbits she does offer:
I have also reached the conclusion that if I am doing what I am doing because I am an “attention whore” then I really need to be committed.
Heh. I could have told you that you should already have been committed to a fine psychiatric institution a few years ago, or at least have been given some meds to help calm down your hysteria, lady.
I have invested everything I have into trying to bring peace with justice to a country that wants neither. If an individual wants both, then normally he/she is not willing to do more than walk in a protest march or sit behind his/her computer criticizing others.
Really? Have you indeed invested everything to bringing peace to the land? You are well within your rights to grieve the loss of your son Casey, and well within your rights to disagree with the prosecution of our military actions in the Middle East. But YOU are the one who played the role of media harlot for the sake of your own egomania. Please! Spare us the sob story.
Do you mean to tell us that you are better than every other grieving mother and father and child and spouse who has seen their loved one make the ultimate sacrifice life for their country? Was not Casey of legal age to make a commitment to serve his country? In my opinion, you do his memory much harm through your showboating his good name to get your fifteen minutes of fame.
Were you so strongly opposed to his entry in the Armed Services, or was this a revelation you received from the Great Leftist Hive Mind when that soldier showed up on your doorstep with a telegram and/or a folded American flag?
As for most people not wanting peace or justice… well lady, where do you see it? You are partially right - when you deal with the radical left, and a left which hardly does its forebears any credit, for these modern leftists are the product of a parentage and an “education” (an indoctrination, really) bereft of a moral compass, and have been raised at the twin teats of selfish materialism (hah!) and crass consumerism without regard for authority or a desire to give up a little to gain a lot.
But for the rest of us on the center and on the right… we do desire peace with justice. But unlike your thinking, it does not entail giving up when the going is the worst, it is pressing on, making mistakes - yes, mistakes, for we shall make them for as long as we are trapped in the mortal coil of sinful flesh - and endeavoring to correct our course to bring stability to Iraq in some form.
Is it perfect? By no means. It will take sacrifice, and the blood of perhaps many more Americans, to stand in the gap so as to prevent an even far greater bloodshed were our nation to fall prey to Islamists.
Yet you speak of sacrifices:
“I have spent every available cent I got from the money a “grateful” country gave me when they killed my son and every penny that I have received in speaking or book fees since then. “
No, neither we, nor the “government” killed your Casey. An Islamist insurgent took the life of your Casey, who fully well knew that that was a possible outcome for himself when he took the oath of service. And guess what? I am grateful for your son’s sacrifice. He truly is a hero.
I have sacrificed a 29 year marriage and have traveled for extended periods of time away from Casey’s brother and sisters and my health has suffered and my hospital bills from last summer (when I almost died) are in collection because I have used all my energy trying to stop this country from slaughtering innocent human beings. I have been called every despicable name that small minds can think of and have had my life threatened many times.
You’ve ruined your marriage, jeopardized your health, and put yourself into intractable debt for your media harlotry. Where was your duty to Mr. Sheehan, to be an obedient and supportive wife to him, and a mother to your remaining children still here on earth? You were carried away by your grief, and found yourself used by the radical left. Who gave you the right to ignore your responsibilities as a mother and a wife to selfishly pursue that carrot dangled in front of you by “opportunity” so-called?
“I am going to take whatever I have left and go home. I am going to go home and be a mother to my surviving children and try to regain some of what I have lost. I will try to maintain and nurture some very positive relationships that I have found in the journey that I was forced into when Casey died and try to repair some of the ones that have fallen apart since I began this single-minded crusade to try and change a paradigm that is now, I am afraid, carved in immovable, unbendable and rigidly mendacious marble.”
Whoa, hold on a sec… you were “forced into” this journey? By whom? Did some terrorists sneak up behind you and jab a weapon into your back, and demand that you become the “Peace Mama”? Or was it that big bad MSM? I could by that… those MSM moguls are some rather unpleasant chaps, even if they are on the same team as you are, for the most part.
And that “mendacious unbending marble” paradigm? You just might be right about that. The radical left that you whored yourself out to for the blood-price of your son’s life is about the most thick-headed bunch of mostly useless idiots. This is about the only place where I could see myself agreeing with you: the Left is too busy trying to play chameleon (Hillary) or obfuscate thier closeted skeletons (Obama) or outright practice chicanery and deception (Silky Pony Edwards)… or otherwise be so wrapped up in their personal agendas that they cannot work with one another.
I’ll also agree with you that the present two party system we have is nothing but useless; the diversity of opinion on public policy is much too large to be included in a big tent of either monied Democrats or monied Republicans. Those of use wee folk are indeed, largely ill-represented.
Finally, I could say that your commitment (to the cause of ending the war) might be commendable, and your afflictions worthy of some consolation, if you did not hold it out expecting some kind of sympathy for your… frankly, insulting and childish behaviour (such as your last post at Kos’s site) :
“Good-bye America … you are not the country that I love and I finally realized no matter how much I sacrifice, I can’t make you be that country unless you want it.
It’s up to you now.”
Indeed? Well, you just as well might do well to emigrate to a country that you do love. Try Venezuela, I hear that Chavez guy is a real riot to hang out with…. y’know, shutting down the media, suppressing invidiual freedoms, confiscating private property… he sure seems like a real swell guy, no?
Yeah, that’s your new boyfriend there, he likes to do the sort of stuff like your son Casey gave his life in order to prevent the same from happening here in the good ol’ USA.
