Cindy Sheehan Calls it Quits

That’s right, our Chavez loving Progressive left symbol of absolute moral authority is finally calling it quits. It’s over and out, Johnny uh er I mean Cindy .


In another one of her whiny Daily Kos post suffering from egregious thesaurus abuse no less, , Cindy Sheehan continues to say that her son died for nothing,and now says that the anti-war movement is full of egomaniacs and lunatics (as if I never knew that one ) , and now all her dreams have been shattered. Daily Kos: ‘Good Riddance Attention Whore’.

Quote:
The most devastating conclusion that I reached this morning, however, was that Casey did indeed die for nothing. His precious lifeblood drained out in a country far away from his family who loves him, killed by his own country which is beholden to and run by a war machine that even controls what we think. I have tried every since he died to make his sacrifice meaningful. Casey died for a country which cares more about who will be the next American Idol than how many people will be killed in the next few months while Democrats and Republicans play politics with human lives. It is so painful to me to know that I bought into this system for so many years and Casey paid the price for that allegiance. I failed my boy and that hurts the most.

I have also tried to work within a peace movement that often puts personal egos above peace and human life. This group won’t work with that group; he won’t attend an event if she is going to be there; and why does Cindy Sheehan get all the attention anyway? It is hard to work for peace when the very movement that is named after it has so many divisions. ...

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. ( uh right ....Shall we look that one up ? .ed)
Camp Casey has served its purpose. It’s for sale. Anyone want to buy five beautiful acres in Crawford , Texas ? I will consider any reasonable offer. I hear George Bush will be moving out soon, too...which makes the property even more valuable.

This is my resignation letter as the “face” of the American anti-war movement. This is not my “Checkers” moment, because I will never give up trying to help people in the world who are harmed by the empire of the good old US of A, but I am finished working in, or outside of this system. This system forcefully resists being helped and eats up the people who try to help it. I am getting out before it totally consumes me or anymore people that I love and the rest of my resources.

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.
Since she clearly dislikes the US of A , maybe Cindy should consider moving down to Venezuela ....She wouldn't have to be bothered with mastering the English language there, and besides Chavez would greet her with open arms and a smooch on the cheek , Why now we hear it's even raining rubber bullets and Tear Gas on all the TV lovers down there !

That's right. Keep kicking her. Does it feel good? Whoops, there's a spot on the side of her face you didn't grind your heel into - better get it.

Actually Brynn, Cindy has done an excellent job of kicking herself in the arse , and disgracing her son .

When She made kissy,kissy with Chavez she sealed her fate , it was just a matter of time before her defamatory anti American behaviour got the better of her .

Now she has to live with it the rest of her miserable life ..and believe me Cindy's life will be miserable from here on in .

Oh well thats life in big city politics !

Maybe you would like to take up her torch ?

Thank God for the Internet. It keeps people like you indoors off the streets for at least a few hours a day, where you can't do any real damage nor bother anyone but people who are willing to waste time arguing with you.

The Loony Liberal Dicotomy Exposed: HuffPo Writer: At Least Hitler Meant Well

At the Huffington Post, your one-stop shop for leftist vitriol and deranged hatred, former Washington Post sportswriter and Seinfeld co-producer Peter Mehlman says the Bush administration is far worse than the world’s worst fascist dictators But...... At least the dictators meant well.

Quote:
So now we’re six and a half years into Bush and everyone from Helen Thomas on down is declaring him the worst president ever. What no one is saying is the one overarching reason he’s the worst: the Bush administration is the first that doesn’t even mean well.

With the possible exception of immigration reform — and who knows what grotesque financial incentive underlies that — try to pinpoint even one policy motivated by the desire to lessen human suffering, to improve the life of citizens. Nothing. There is nothing. ...

You could argue that even the world’s worst fascist dictators at least meant well. They honestly thought were doing good things for their countries by suppressing blacks/eliminating Jews/eradicating free enterprise/repressing individual thought/killing off rivals/invading neighbors, etc. Only the Saudi royal family is driven by the same motives as Bush, but they were already entrenched. Bush set a new precedent. He came into office with the attitude of “I’m so tired of the public good. What about my good? What about my rich friends’ good?”

How can anyone not see it? It’s not that their policies have been misguided or haven’t played out right. They. Don’t. Even. Mean. Well.

Better Read it Quick before Arriana pulls . or the Author decidedly changes it due to it's True Liberal reflectiveness

Heya Duke

Honestly, I wouldn't know of Cindy Sheehan but for your posts @ ICQ and now here... I know there are many people against Iraq war in the US, but it doesn't come across as a strong peace movement like it was with Vietnam (at least from Euro-perspective, Americans here are invited to fill me in).

Venezuela: Well Chavez, is totally en vogue with turning his announced 21st century socialism (fear we'll have to wait till 22nd century for real cool socialism) into 20th century Stalinism. Authoritarianism and/or populism are THE thing on the political catwalks worldwide... Take a peek at Russia (where not only gay activists are beaten up by police), Poland (where after Teletubbies, miniskirts, abortions after rape and incest are in discussion for a ban), (semi-)officially accepted racism, antisemitism, anticyganism etc. flourishing in many places and so on... not to mention states like Saudi-Arabia, North Korea, Sudan, China, Iran, Myanmar, Pakistan, Belarus, Cuba, Syria, the 3 -stan countries of Central Asia, Singapore, Egypt, where (ultra-)authoritarianism is quite established since a while.

Off-topic: How do you like Sarkozy's style up to now? Concerning that beer bet - I'd like Jever!

Hiya Stephie

Well I would call the recurring palpitations from those countries growing pains , if you look elsewhere , perhaps in the US you will see that no one is making noise about some idiotic kiddy show under the guise of gender awareness .

When it comes to Teletubbies , I prefer the word imbecilic as the nomer for the show .

I mean come on here , beings with television sets where their bellybutton should be ?

If you ask me I don't think we have to worry about the teletubbies turning our children into homosexuals , after watching that tripe they will be too idiotic to even think about their sexual preferences ....lol

Well Chavez is becoming rather well experienced at shooting his own people ...he's a paper Castro ..nothing more , nothing less .

I dont know if communism or even Stalinism is the vogue , they always tend to kill their own just before they break down and hit skidrow ....remember the mess that was left behind by the Soviets , you should know ..the stinking sweat shops , the terrible disorder , and environmental catastrophes they left as their legacy .

I still like Regan , he at least had the balls to tell the USSR to tear that wall down !~

Didn't say a word on the US, now did I? In the States you've got the highest density of Bible whackos in our so-called Western world... BUT they ain't have close as much say than currently in Poland were they're needed by the twins for majority, so there's no need for unnecessary America bashing, which is very boring anyways It's even more boring when one sees that not only the USA, but Germany, Netherlands, etc and so on are either allied or at least very friendly with many states on that list.
But you see in this light that it's completely irrelevant when an American peace activist, scarcely known widely outside America, goes to see and praise Senor Chavez, when George W, Tony, Angie and Co. go to see and praise King Abdullah of S.A. or arrange business / 'war against terror' deals for their countries, so that for example Karimov ("president", ie.autocrat of Uzbekistan) might soon be able to let make a new gold statue of himself...

***

So you absolutely can't stand them Teletubbies - that came through kinda... Chill this are only TV characters... no terrorists, no danger for national security & stuff

I said authoritarianism and populism, which indeed can dress as communism/Stalinism, but also as (ultra)nationalism/fascism or Islamism, or weird mixes of leftwing and rightwing (Islamism is rightwing btw) political flavours. I imagine politics as circle, where extreme leftwing and rightwing meet at the bottom - worst case scenario of a govt - and moderate left and right meet at the top - ideal scenario. In both bottom and top regions traditional right or left attitudes have vanished and formed kinda an alloy, like amalgam.

But that

is absolutely true for authoritarian regimes, no matter what colour they paint themselves.

I still like tovarishch Mikhail Gorbachyov, because he made it possible for us Germans to tear down that wall!
(Mr. "Star Wars" Reagan I always thought quite a sympatico uncle when I saw him on telly as a kid- but do you really think that Gorbi did what he did just because of Reagan's balls? I don't. But of course that all belongs to the American mythos of "winning the Cold war" and I don't wanna take away your delight, proudness and all - BUT actually you're still fighting it, against mistakes Reagan and predecessors made by 'allying with Lucifer against Satan'...)

At least she has the balls to protest and show her outright contempt for this fvcked up war. What moves have you made to try and stop it except bitch about it?

Cindy Sheehan is a mother grieving the still recent loss of her son. I don't care what kind of ass anyone makes of themselves in the course of that unbearable, nightmarish transition. Have some compassion, for Christ's sake. It's obvious you no nothing of that kind of loss.
The war in Iraq is a disaster on every possible level. There is no way around that. At least she's been a courageous voice for what should be painfully obvious to all. I haven't followed her actions in the last year, and I don't care. She gets a free ride in my book, and speaks for many voiceless families coping with loss.

And, blow me down, but I actually agree completely with Duke about Chavez, much as I hate to admit that i'm actually reading these rantings. My best friend, a venuzuelan, confirms all.

Mythos ?

Stephie you should know better , are you still standing on a bread line today Babe ?

there is no mythos about the cold war , it was an economic war that brought the Soviet Union to the poor house ...and the USA was only the cab driver delivering them to their self prescribed destination.

Yes thats right sweetie Ronny Raygun-(zap) worked for Yellow Cab .....and Drove Gorby downtown to skid row for a tour that Gorby didn't like .

and Reganomics was partly the coup de grace' that put the USSR under for the final time ....thats no mythos sweetie , just look it up if you don't believe me .

How often exactly did we had that discussion now? (Btw, I never stood in any bread line as an original West German, East Germans neither did, they stood in lines for exotic fruits and other not-life-essential goods - what you mean sounds more like Ceauşescu's Romania)

I repeat: The Cold War (am speaking not in economic terms and you know that) is not yet won - watch the news. Al Quaida & Co. are the direct product of American/Western politics pre-1989.

You do some reading on Gorbi!
