I may have to revise my earlier statement that Cindy Sheehan was a Lefty activist well before her present escapade.
My change of heart comes from finally hearing this woman speak. She is a dolt. She is just as dumb as bait. She sounds like a fifty-year-old valley-girl.
Just the other day she warned that if they (the activists) were gunned down, it would be the Secret Service who was to blame! She actually believes this and was putting them on notice that she knew what they were up to!
She may have held these leftist “beliefs” before this whole circus in Crawford got started, but she certainly didn’t come up with them by herself. It now seems far from inconceivable, and actually quite probable, that some of these Lefty groups hunted her down and persuaded her that she could make her sons death “meaningful” by getting us out of Iraq and attacking President Bush.
After hearing the woman speak, I don’t think that it would be terribly difficult to persuade her of almost anything that the Left wanted to use her for. Though I’m sure that she’s being used willingly, and that she was a Lefty to begin with, the Left’s exploitation of this woman’s dead son is typical of their disgusting behavior.
Which points out the one overwhelming characteristic of today’s Left: their utter lack of civilized behavior. They have no dignity, no tact, no self-discipline, no diplomacy, no civility, no shame.Witness their inability to say the word “Republican” without attaching to it the name of some murderous dictator or movement.
They are hysterical, shrieking children who are not able to grasp the consequences of their actions.
They are so far gone that they don’t even have the decency to be embarrassed by their behavior. But then, why should they be? All of this, in their minds, is nothing more than the means to an end. Therefore it is justified.
Many people believe that that 'end' is the destruction of, or at least the lowering of, America as a superpower. I believe that it is no more than these childish people screaming for attention.
This is another example of what the American people mean when they speak of the Democrats and the Left having no “moral values”: they will do anything to get their way and have absolutely no qualms about it.
What’s the difference between Cindy Sheehan and the other 1799 or so mothers who lost sons in the war? Cindy Sheehan has no dignity or shame.
And before the Moonbats start howling about the hypocrisy of what I’ve written above vs. attacking a “poor grieving mother”, note that Ms. Sheehan gave up any status that her son’s death may have given her when she decided to politicize his death. In fact, I’m sure that that was part of the plan for her leftist advisers: “They couldn’t possibly come after a grieving mother! She’ll have free reign to say whatever we want her to say, and nobody can criticize her!”
Well, think again. If she wants to politicize the tragedy of her brave son losing his life fighting for something that he obviously believed in, then she had better be ready to defend her despicable actions.
Do you think that she ever stopped and asked, “Is this what Casey would want?” I guess that it’s possible: another of the characteristics of the Left is an amazing ability to lie to themselves.
