I don’t usually respond to every blogpost on the left that spews out a bunch of nonsense about me. If I did that, I’d never get to post much of anything else on this site and you wonderful people would be denied my wit, wisdom, and sleep-inducing prose.
That said, this guy’s post about me was too good to pass up. It started on Saturday when I left a drive-by comment about this ignorant peaen to Cindy Sheehan:
Cindy Sheehan is passionate, but her commonality is what truly frightens those that oppose and attack her. Career activists and academic dissenters have, like it or not, become extremely easy to marginalize, their language too remote. But Sheehanâ€™s language is not. Her language makes her a threat because of its commonality. Millions of mothers across the United States identify with Sheehan, and millions besides support her single demand, the simplicity of which is stunningly powerful.
Cindy Sheehan wants to meet with the President and ask him some very basic questions, the sorts of questions that the majority of Americans can understand. Bushâ€™s advisors know how dangerous this situation is, and not just for the current administration, but for the Republican candidate in 2008. That would be why they have chosen to use the media to defame Sheehan. For were the answers to Sheehanâ€™s questions strong enough to stand on their own merit, President Bush would have met with Sheehan days ago. That, in itself, should say something to those watching this drama unfold.
Cindy Sheehan’s “commonality” of course, includes some of the most nauseating anti-semitism this side of the Third Reich. And anyone who thinks that this conspiracy mongering fantasist is anything except a disturbed, suffering woman being used by her fellow conspiracy mongering fantasists on the far left to advance a true anti-American agenda better think again. And the meme that “Cindy Sheehan wants to meet with the President and ask him some very basic questions” is believed only by 5 year old children who eagerly await the arrival of Santa Claus on Christmas and the Easter Bunny on Easter Sunday. What Cindy Sheehan wants is the “Chief Brody Slap” picture - a moment that she devoutly wishes to have replayed over and over like the Howard Dean scream that doomed that worthy’s candidacy after Iowa.
No-one is “afraid” of Cindy Sheehan except the far left who harbor the fear that when the press packs up and goes home, the media circus will end and they’ll have to scout out their next “Rosa Parks” to try and jump start a movement that simply is not resonating with the American people - a movement to cut and run in Iraq and allow the enemies of the United States to claim victory on the field of battle.
They are not interested in Sheehan. They are not interested in Bush, except as he represents what they hate most - the United States. Their goal is not to save the Iraqi people but to humiliate the country. They have made that quite clear, believing that a full fledged humiliation in Iraq will assist them in their ultimate goal of electing far left candidates to office.
“Bush Advisers” don’t need to shame Sheehan. She has done that all by herself. Every time she opens her mouth (and this despite a slew of PR flaks and media consultants) she says something else so outrageous that even what’s left of the sane left has abandoned her.
For God’s sake, stop trying to make this anti-semitic conspiracist into an anti-war icon. Just let her be. Just let her be…
Received this email from the moonbat who was upset with my comment on Mrs. Sheehan that I left on his blog.
He has now taken down the post I linked above because “I don’t want you getting traffic.” Why he linked to me in the first place remains a mystery. I guess at that time he did want to send me traffic…or he didn’t…until did. I think.
He also explained why he had to delete my comment:
Any comment that espouses violence, hatred, racism, sexism, and/or
generally abusive language is subject to removal. Any comment that
aims to silence other points of view through intimidation, ad hominem
attacks, and/or other methods is subject to removal.”
I guess when decrying anti-semitism, you’re practicing hate. Against whom again remains a mystery. Perhaps other anti-semites may get upset in which case, judging by the agreement with Mrs. Sheehan’s well known comments about Israel and the Jews and the conspiracy theories that involve the “neocons” and Jews that appeared in the comments on his website, maybe he should think about shutting himself down.
Also, I guess ad hominem attacks against conservatives are perfectly alright. And hate. But I guess this is what passes for political discourse on the left these days.
My point in posting it was to
illustrate the sort of baseless, unintelligent rhetoric spewed by
those that conduct themselves as if 40 years younger than they are.
Your views don’t even rate mention, your conduct has stripped you of
First, what my age has to do with anything is beyond me. Perhaps he’s likening me to all those “children” he and Mrs. Sheehan are talking about who are serving in Iraq. You know…the ones who volunteered to serve in the military, many of whom are in their 20’s and 30’s. This is an outgrowth of the left’s desire to take care of all of us as if we were infants. Maybe I should start referring to this fella as my nanny.
Secondly, if my views don’t even rate mention, why mention them? Just wondering.
Please do not contact me again or visit my website. Thank you.
Well…that’s the ultimate dagger. I guess I’m going to have to scratch him off the list of sites that I’d never visit in a million years. I found it originally through a Technorati search of Cindy Sheehan. I was looking for people like this guy who believe that “Mother Sheehan” is some kind of catalyst for the anti-war movement.
As I made clear in this post, it’s a fantasy to believe such nonsense. And to elevate someone whose diatribes drip with anti-semitic venom and anti-American bilge to the level of saint says more about the left than anything my poor abilities could possibly relate.
