Forget about Cindy Sheehan…for a moment anyway. Let’s talk about the Joooos.
You know, the Jooooos. They’re the people who ordered George Bush to invade Iraq. The people who are oppressing those poor, benighted women and children in Palestine. And if you can’t find Palestine on a map, don’t fret. It’s located in the very same place that some country called “Israel” currently occupies. Not to worry because that’s just a typo. The map makers of the world are simply waiting for the heroic Palestinian people to throw off the yoke of oppression encircling their waists like the bomb belts worn by their children. It’s simply a matter of time. There are apparently an endless number of Palestinian children willing to blow themselves to smithereens – and take as many of those evil, occupying Joooos with them as possible. And since there are a helluva lot more Palestinian Arabs than there are Joooos, logic dictates that eventually, the devout wish of those peace loving, misunderstood, day-care-starting-hospital-administering-food-bank-donaters from Hamas will be realized; i.e. the Jooos will cease to exist.
Why, to hear some people talk, it’s a matter of justice, a question of hoooomun rights. The freedom fighters who wear the, er uniform of Hamas aren’t really that violent. Did you know that a grenade launcher has a dual use utility? That’s right. It also makes a great martini shaker.
I bring all this up because the mainstream press refuses to bring the embarrassing truth about Cindy Sheehan and the company she keeps to the attention of the droolers, the half-wits, and Ritalin guzzlers who make up her starry eyed and swooning Greek chorus here in the Shadow Media. I’m talking about Kos, the DU, and the Huff ‘n Puffers who think the nauseating anti-semite camped out in front of the President’s ranch in Crawford is either the second coming of Rosa Parks, or the catalyst to morph the current anti-war movement into a resurrected manifestation of some 1960’s flower-child protest party.
This is why the left is so anxious to bring back those heady days of Viet Nam; they miss the guilt-free, consequenceless sex that made being a hippie so rewarding. In the age of AIDS and other epidemic sexually transmitted diseases, who doesn’t long for those sexually charged times when men were men and women were…well, easy. One would hope that the greying group of long haired, sandal wearing, Viagra swilling ancients would have taken a bath at least once since 1968. Otherwise, the new age youngsters who’ve joined them in the trenches may be a little put off by the aroma.
I did a post a few days ago asking that when opposing Mrs. Sheehan, we understand that she is so stricken with grief that it has warped her judgement. But really, there’s no excuse for this:
â€œ9/11 was Pearl Harbor for the neo-conservativesâ€™ agendaâ€ and declared the U.S. government a â€œmorally repugnant system.â€ Then she raged:
“We have no Constitution. Weâ€™re the only country with no checks and balances. We want our country back if we have to impeach George Bush down to the person who picks up the dog sh-t in Washington! Let George Bush send his two little party animals to die in Iraq. Itâ€™s OK for Israel to have nuclear weapons but we are waging nuclear war in Iraq, we have contaminated the entire country. Itâ€™s not OK for Syria to be in Lebanon. Hypocrites! But Israel can occupy Palestine? Stop the slaughter!”
This is a mild outburst. And for those who say advocating the Palestinian cause is not anti-semitic, I will accuse you also of being a hater of the Jews. You cannot exist on this planet and not know that the “Palestinian cause” is annihilation of not just the Jewish state but all Jews everywhere. By making common cause with the genocidal thugs of Hamas, you reveal yourself to be as bad as any run-of-the-mill goober chewing, goose-stepping neo-Nazi skin head thug in this country. No difference.
Which brings us back to Mrs. Sheehan and her friends. For the media to glorify this paranoid is beyond belief. She thinks America would be a fascist state if not for the internet:
“This is something that can’t be ignored,” Sheehan said during a conference call with bloggers representing sites like democrats.com, codepink4peace.org, and crooksandliars.com. “They can’t ignore us, and they can’t put us down. Thank God for the Internet, or we wouldn’t know anything, and we would already be a fascist state.”
And again, here’s that mythical place called “Palestine:”
“You get America out of Iraq and Israel out of Palestine and you’ll stop the terrorism,” Sheehan declares.
Sheehan, who is asking for a second meeting with President Bush, says defiantly: “My son was killed in 2004. I am not paying my taxes for 2004. You killed my son, George Bush, and I don’t owe you a penny…you give my son back and I’ll pay my taxes. Come after me (for back taxes) and we’ll put this war on trial.”
“And now I’m going to use another ‘I’ word – impeachment – because we cannot have these people pardoned. They need to be tried on war crimes and go to jail.”
And Powerline links to some interesting information on her “host” in Crawford; the Crawford House:
Cindy Sheehan has tied her cart to, the Crawford Peace House [Note: The CPH people have deleted the material mentioned in this post from their page, but I have the original. Here is the Google cache. See the update at the bottom of this post.]. They claim to be a house of peace, and Cindy Sheehan’s agenda would seem to be centered on the War in Iraq, but even a cursory look at the CPH’s web page shows a clearly different agenda. As I write this, the word “Iraq” appears on CPH’s front page a total of ONE time. The number of times a certain eastern Mediterranean country’s name appears? Seventeen times. And the single essay on the page is about…Iraq? No. It is about the world’s true demon, root of all evil, Israel.
The probable reason Crawford House took down their Jew-baiting material was the intervention of one of the slickest PR firms around – Fenton Communications – who recently came on board as a hireling of Ben Cohen’s group Truemajority. Mr. Cohen is the moonbat who helped start Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream and who famously used to give a part of his profit to “world peace” including donations to the National Council of Churches which acted as a front organization (unwittingly) for KGB donations in the United States in the 1980’s.
Fenton has their work cut out for them. The ragamuffins attending to the Queen of Grief need to be “handled” so that their anti-semitic rhetoric doesn’t get out of hand. And the fact is, since Fenton came on board, Mrs. Sheehan’s rhetoric has moderated to the point that she just seems a little kooky rather than a frothing at the mouth Jew hater.
Hindrocket at Powerline wonders if she’s “a poor, benighted woman unhinged and rendered irrational by grief, or is she a calculating, vicious anti-Semite and anti-American like the extremists with whom she associates?”
I’m really not sure. But I know in order for her to avoid self-destruction, she’s going to have to be managed by her handlers like a candidate in a political campaign.
Which, of course, is exactly what her little one act play is all about – politics. Her “crusade” has gone beyond grief, beyond anger and has entered the high-tech digitial world of a media campaign. The danger is that word will get out about this, that the MSM will actually start reporting the spin just like they do for a political campaign. Once that happens, her little charade will lose it’s drama value for the nets and Cindy Sheehan will be left with 15-30 second sound bites to spout her hatred.
The closer one looks at Mrs. Sheehan the less attractive she becomes. This is why the big lefty blogs are steering clear of her. They sympathize with her goals but recognize a charlatan when they see one. But as long as Kos and his minions are on board, she won’t lack for internet coverage.
That is, unless she really starts saying what she thinks about the Joooos and how their evil influence is the cause of all the problems in the world.
Michelle Malkin links to a fascinating article in Newsweek that tells the story of some of the President’s visits with families of the fallen. I’ve written about the same thing here where Bush visited with familes before going on TV to make his nationwide address on Iraq.
Lori at Polipundit rightly questions some of the editorializing in the article but I think the slant is overwhelmed by the simply humanity of the President revealed in the article.
Read the whole thing.
Q & O picks up on the anti-semitism angle:
Cindy Sheehan has gone from a grieving mother most could feel sympathy for to the ringmaster at a tawdry circus. Of course the anti-war crowd and the MSM love it, not that anyone’s particularly surprised by that.
The one thing the MSM is sensitive about is anti-semitism – at least the kind of nauseating overt variety practiced by Mrs. Sheehan and her enablers at Crawford House. If they start to play that aspect of her “vigil” up, the tide may turn against the sympathy maven.
