Before anyone gets too teary-eyed over this “poor, grief-stricken mother” down in Crawford, TX, you really need to read this.
This woman is nothing more than an “end justifies the means” left-wing moonbat who’s using her dead son to further her politics. She is a despicable hypocrite.
Too many people on the Right are giving her the benefit of the doubt, saying that the death of her son has "driven her over the edge" and that all of these left-wing groups are using her, but there is ample evidence that her politics were the same as the looney Leftists long before her son, Casey, died.
As noted, Cindy Sheehan already met with Bush last June, two months after Casey’s death, along with a delegation of grieving military families. After that meeting, Sheehan initially said President Bush was caring, and the two spoke of their deep religious convictions. “I now know he's sincere about wanting freedom for the Iraqis,” Cindy declared. “I know he's sorry and feels some pain for our loss. And I know he's a man of faith.”
Listen to her now and you get the exact opposite stance.
“Looking back, all I can say is that the meeting with Bush was one of the most disgusting experiences in my life.”
Cindy Sheehan has close ties with some of the most anti-American, anti-Semitic, pro-Communist left-wing groups in this country, and has since well before her son’s death. She’s being used by these groups, but willingly so.
Her son, who apparently loved this country enough to sign up for a second hitch, must be rolling in his grave.
My prayers go out to Casey Sheehan. My scorn goes out to his mother.
