Right Wing Nut House



Filed under: Cindy Sheehan — Rick Moran @ 7:07 pm

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 Sheehan’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. Bush’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 Sheehan’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
even that.

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.

Finally, this:

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.


  1. Once again a well written reply to the fools out there who are championing Sheehan the Pitifull.

  2. Just from curiosity, I went and took a quick look at that site. Slap me if I try something like that again. Please.

    Narcissists, vapid wannabe intellectuals, self-deluded twits. Did I say slap me if I feel the need to go places like that again? Do it twice.

  3. “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.”

    In other words, he was for sending you traffic before he was against it. :-)

    Sorry, couldn’t pass that one up.

  4. First, I have to mention that your blog is aptly named; nuthouse indeed.

    I read through some of that guy’s blog, and I hate to disappoint you, but the stuff that guy writes is far from anti-Semitic, far from anti-American. There’s a difference between disliking the actions a country or a government body is taking and saying, “I hate Jews!” or “I hate Americans!” I could say I dislike communism but that doesn’t mean I hate Chinese people.

    Quite honestly, I think you’re both picking and choosing what you want to see from each other’s blogs and not reading every word. You can’t read between the lines if you’re not even reading the damn book. Aren’t both of you grown men? Isn’t the whole resulting to name-calling thing something pre-pubescent little boys do? Really, just because you don’t agree with someone doesn’t mean they’re instant psychos or completely against you and your country. Same goes for him.

    Debates can be intelligent, but wow, you guys sure missed the point. More points for him for actually deleting the original post (although including an outgoing email to you for all eyes to see definately isn’t helping). That’s what’s lovely about the internet. You can destroy childish arguments rather than flaunting them as if they were something to be proud of. Extremists from the left are psycho, sure, but so are extremists from the right. So your opinions are different. Sarcasm sure isn’t going to fix the problem.

    I could go on, but, based on the directions such interactions take, common sense and otherwise practical means of solving issues often go ignored.

  5. I went back and reread my post just to make sure I wrote what I intended. Sure enough, just as I suspected, you either didn’t read the post or you’re accusing me of exactly what you say I was doing - reading things into this other guy’s writings.

    Nowhere did I accuse him of anti-semitism or anti-Americanism. I did accuse Cindy Sheehan and the gimlet-eyed radicals who have captured her little side show in Crawford and are using it for their own purposes.

    My comment left on his blog was a two or three sentence dismissive of his fawning over Mrs. Sheehan. It was not hateful. It was not obscene. He deleted the comment because I mocked him for being such an idiot.

    Frankly, if I used that criteria here, there wouldn’t be too many dissenting views….or comments.

    Finally, who’s trying to “solve issues?” Certainly not me. As I said at the top, I get 4 or 5 posts a week calling me all sorts of vile, personal names (as well as making fun of the name of the site which even you couldn’t resist). I usually don’t respond to them. But since this idiot not only deleted my comment but then did a blog post explaining WHY he deleted my comment, I couldn’t resist.

  6. First, the Moonbats show they have, as we all know, no humor, vis a vis you blog name, Rick.

    Second, I hope you washed you hands and disinfected you PC after visiting that site.

    Third, and more serious, why is it that the lefties cannot take honest discussion? They slap up all these anti this and anti that and “I hate….” posts, then pitch a hissy fit when they get called on it. “I don’t want you to get traffic.” Boo hoo. Is it any wonder that the left continues to lose elections? Bunch of whiny azz babies.

    That’s it, I’m taking my (pink) ball and going home. You right wing people are mean. LOL.

  7. Rick: my apologies for misunderstanding that particular part of what you wrote.

    William: the “I hate…” thing was written in reference. I just thought the whole idea of posting back and forth about each other on blogs was, well, pretty childish. There was really no need to make fun or be sulky about it; but to each their own I guess.

    And for the record, the far left and the far right can both go to hell. ;)

  8. Well, marty, those shots really weren’t meant to be taken at you, but rather at the matthew good website, and the far left in general. I appologize if you took them that way.

  10. Cindy Sheehan should take heart in knowing that had she been doing-the-thing-she-does now in Iraq with her beloved Mr. Hussein in power, she would not last a minute alive.
