A Shameful Spectacle
Reporting on a shameful Spectacle staged by the left is a routine thing. Usually, there are several shameful spectacles per day in this nation. However, we now have a truly shameful thing happening just outside our Presidentís ranch in Texas. Cindy Sheehan sits camped outside President Bushís ranch. Although she has already met one time with our President, and spoke publicly and glowingly about him, she has changed her tune 180 degrees.
"She started by saying that, unlike she originally said, our president was indifferent to her loss -- her son died in the war. As time went on, her rhetoric became more and more extreme."
She started by saying that, unlike she originally said, our president was indifferent to her loss -- her son died in the war. As time went on, her rhetoric became more and more extreme. Now, this morning (August 14), she calls for President Bushís impeachment for unspecified "war crimes," rants in typical leftist anti-Semitic fashion against Israel ("You get America out of Iraq and Israel out of Palestine and youíll stop the terrorism"), and states that she will pay no taxes for 2004, and if she is brought up on charges, sheíll "put this war on trial."
Mrs. Sheehanís family have all begged her to stop her protest. President Bush will not meet a second time, and I cannot blame him -- she is a leftist looking to harm our President and his administration, and whether or not intentionally, is aiding and comforting our terrorist enemies.
Is Mrs. Sheehan a shrewd America-hating leftist trying to split this country? Is she a grief-stricken mother whose grief has been leveraged by others who hate America, making her a pawn in their evil quest to thwart the will of the people and gain power by any means necessary? Has her loss dissociated her from reality? I donít know.
"What I do know is that there are hundreds of either side of this war descending on the Presidentís ranch, the media is making this a circus. The fact that Casey Sheehan heroically gave his life for his country, willingly, is being ignored by all of the leftist media."
What I do know is that there are hundreds of either side of this war descending on the Presidentís ranch, the media is making this a circus. The fact that Casey Sheehan heroically gave his life for his country, willingly, is being ignored by all of the leftist media. They circle like blood-excited sharks, as they continue their quest to destroy any and all who do not hold their exact ideology.
The shameful spectacle is the press, looking for any way possible to ruin our President, a good and decent man who has ably protected us from the evil of terrorism, for four years since 9/11, an attack brought on by the stupid and foolish policies of his leftist predecessor. When other pundits say that the Left is all but finished, I tend to agree on an intelectual leve. However, in the trenches, their amoral tactics -- discredit the war with pure lies, try to bring down an honest president with B.S. -- show that they are not dead yet.
We conservatives need to get out there, every day, and tell the truth. Donít spin it. Tell it. In this case this mother of a fallen hero is making herself the story and sulying her sonís heroic legacy. The media is happily helping her. Shame!
