Cindy Sheehan, Blunt Face of The Left

Published by at 3:18 pm under All General Discussions,Anti War Protests

I am beginning to lose my sympathy for Cindy (as I posted here and here) and I am beginning to find her a humorous conundrum for the democrats. As with most times when a liberal fringe person get’s plenty of MSM air time – the democrats who are still in power get nervous since the unadulterated views of the leftward fringes usually repulse the 80+% of America who are not ‘liberal’.

Cindy Sheehan is doing a bang up job of simply ruining the democrat’s chances in 2006 and 2008. First, she is alienating all those military families who take pride in the military and its mission. The biased summer polls reflect universal frustration with Bush on Iraq – not a desire to see Iraq a failure. Most people want it to succeed.

Pretending otherwise, by the desparate MSM, simply sets the left up for another big fall. Just like with Dan Rather’s fake-but-true memos the liberals want to believe, they need to believe, so badly that Iraq should fail they miss that a new Iraq constitution coming out will bolster our resolve. It never occurs to them the dynamics will change soon. Right now tension and apprehension is high because we are coming on another milestone. It happens all the time. And when we get through it the polls will shift back. Dems are playing the same losing game Ted Kennedy played prior to the Iraqi elections.

And now Cindy begins to move beyond cementing an already stalwart base of the conservatives – the military and its families – to attacking the democrat base itself!

From Drudge we have this:

“You get America out of Iraq and Israel out of Palestine and you’ll stop the terrorism,” Sheehan declares.

Will anti-semite wonders never cease. The democrats cannot afford to lose the jewish vote – but here is the democrat poster-mother telling the jews to abandon Isreal, which I assume Cindy believes the Jews took illegaly. Why else should they get out of Palestine?

And of course Cindy cannot help but call for full retreat in the face of the terrorists and insurgents, thus repulsing moderates. American never supports a quitter – especially when we are progressing towards a win.

But does Cindy stop there? Nope! She wants to bring back the good old days of Clinton – with revenge! It is a common undercurrent in politics to believe the dems are more interested in political revenge than any national successes for the country – that would benefit the reps and is not allowed to happen. And now we have it on a good source that is probably a core aspect of liberal thinking, because it is one of her three top missions in life.

Anti-war protestor Cindy Sheehan, whose soldier son Casey was killed in Iraq, is calling for Bush’s “impeachment…

“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.”

Remember, this woman speaks from the heart of the liberal movement. She is the hard hitting spokesperson they always wanted. What Howard Dean hinted at, what Kuchinich hinted at. Now they have Cindy (expect talk of public office quite soon) and they are eating it up.

Strangely, she also refuses to pay her fair share of taxes, like somehow they go to George Bush!!

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.”

I guess helping the needy takes a distant second to scoring political points.

There you have it folks – the true, blunt voice of the liberal lunatics. I wonder how long before the democrat powers-that-be try and shut her down. The dems must distance themselves from Cindy, but that would be betraying a grieving icon of the left. So they either lose the non-liberal vote and crash and burn. Or they lose the liberal fringe vote and crash and burn.

The only question left is which image do they want to be remembered by when they crash and burn: Cindy’s anti-semitic, surrender-now-before-we-win, impeach-Bush legacy or, as the last sane people to stick with a dying party (and have some hope of leading the re-birth of that party).

The dems have fostered the lunacy of the liberal fringe for years. And that short sighted strategy is coming back to haunt them now that these people represent 2/3rds of the democrat party. They can’t win with ’em, that can’t win without ’em. What a conundrum.

I will end with an old, time proven saying of mine: If you want to beat democrats in elections, just let them talk (especially the liberals!).
