Cindy Sheehan, Mother of all Hypocrites

Saturday, September 17, 2005

I am not, of course, referring to her son, who died valiantly fighting for his country, and whose memory this woman desecrates and shamelessly exploits daily.

Via Matt Drudge, Cindy Sheehan, apparently jealous of all the attention drawn by that bitch Katrina, has decided to a little blowing of her own, unleashing in addition, a shockingly toxic flood of ranting invective at both the Huffington Post and Michael Moore's website. Drudge provides the following quote:

I don't care if a human being is black, brown, white, yellow or pink. I don't care if a human being is Christian, Muslim, Jew, Buddhist, or pagan. I don't care what flag a person salutes: if a human being is hungry, then it is up to another human being to feed him/her [sic]. George Bush needs to stop talking, admit the mistakes of his all around failed administration, pull our troops out of occupied New Orleans and Iraq, and excuse his self [sic] from power. The only way America will become more secure is if we have a new administration that cares about Americans even if they don't fall into the top two percent of the wealthiest. [bold added]
He then reports that "Sheehan is in the middle of a bus trip across America in support of her cause."

Note that it apparently hasn't occurred to Sheehan to make a detour to New Orleans to assist in the feeding of all those needy himmers in New Orleans. Bush and FEMA, "slow" as they are, beat her to that. In fact, now that I think of it, I do not recall Sheehan volunteering to be airlifted into New Orleans to feed the looters, who were so hunger-crazed that they were attempting to satisfy their ravenous appetites with electronics goods and jewelry. (As a bonus, she would have headed off the "American invasion" of New Orleans.)

Oh yeah. But feeding the hungry is the job of "another human being" to do, but not Cindy Sheehan. And preventing the rapes and murders at the Convention Center is the job of "another human being", but not Cindy Sheehan. And raising "good" pacifist sons is the job of "another human being", but not Cindy Sheehan.

Cindy Sheehan's son volunteered to serve in the army of the same nation that is now "occupying" New Orleans. So is it the job of "another human being", Cindy, to condemn your son's decision to fight? Or is it the job of "another human being" to rethink Cindy Sheehan's beliefs? To honor the death of her son? To quit screaming from the sidelines while a wounded nation tries to recover from a disaster? Is Cindy Sheehan not "another human being"? If she is, what, exactly, exempts her from taking the very medicine she prescribes?

Here's something, and probably the only thing, that should give Cindy Sheehan pause: If we do what you say, Cindy, that will mean less attention for you. Now. Shut up. Go home. And quit desecrating the memory of your son.

CAV, I will never figure you out.
We often disagree, but I have always been proud to have had accomplished individuals, capable of the utmost in critical thought, Occam's razor, and no holds barred to call fellow submariners. We are truly an unusual lot.

Reading Sheehan's latest delusional rantings at the HuffPO and, I cannot help but shake my head in disbelief that the American media bestowed any level of credibility upon this woman.

I appreciate your comment, and the fact that you're willing to entertain my opinions whether you agree with them or not. America did not become the great country that she is because her citizens stuck their heads in the sand the moment they heard someone express an opinion different from their own.


It is indeed quite distressing to see that Sheehan gets so much as the time of day, and yet.... The more the media keep this up, the less credibility they will have. The MSM are no longer the sole source of information. They no longer can preempt debate. Let the MSM have all the rope they need. They will hang themselves.

The Sheehan phenomenon is an example of a dying gasp, as ugly as it nevertheless is.
