The truth about the protesting mom

--posted by Tony Garcia on 8/11/2005

In case you have not heard, there is a mother who is protesting the war since her son was killed. (See story here.)

First, I doubt very much that she was a Bush supporter in 2000...before her volunteer son was killed in action. But more importantly this woman is the new facade of the Democrats. They cannot run on their positions so they are getting cover candidates like Coleen Rowley to run for them. This mother is their "anti-war militant" with a Mommy cover. Who is going to go after her? She is a mother whose son was lost in Iraq.

"Before my son was killed, I used to think that one person could not make a difference," she said Wednesday under a tent where she has slept since Saturday. "But one person that is surrounded and supported by millions of people can be heard."

Understand this...as you listen to her story over the next however long the MSM hoists her on their hate-Bush pedestal, she is more about her own popularity than any real discussion. In fact, her entire premise is crap and limited to the pulp that is the anti-war talking points.
Since then, she said, various government and independent commission reports have disputed the Bush administration's claims that Saddam Hussein had mass-killing chemical and biological weapons - a main justification for the March 2003 invasion.

That is NOT the reason we went into Iraq. That is what Clinton was saying before he left office AND it is the reason that Powell presented to the United Nations. Bush's position to the UN was simply demonstrating their own security risks. We have many, many other reasons to be in Iraq, Iran, Syria and North Korea. But she does not get it. In fact, she is so obtuse that she has no idea how to properly "honor" her son.
"I want him to quit using my son's death to justify more killing," she said. "The only way he can honor my son's death is to bring the troops home."
You are as stuipd as you are partisan (which is obviously quite a bit). If we "cut and run" as the Democrats insist upon then we lose a lot. We lose the momentum in spreading democracy; ending the fight against repressive regimes; lose a staging point in the war on terror; the people of Iraq will be lost like North Vietnam when Nixon "cut and run". "Cut and run" is a proven LOSING strategy...and the left is embracing. Perhaps they lack the cognitive ability to realize what we are really engaged in and are only thinking of their own interests. Perhaps "Party" is more important to them than "Country" or "Freedom".

Back to this puppet of the left.

If you want to honor your son, Cindy Sheehan of Vacaville, CA, then you need to stand up and help the war to be won. Otherwise his death will be in vain. Otherwise his death will be nothing more than a bargaining chip for the partisan hacks that you vote for (and that are using you like a cheap whore from downtown on a Friday night). Sorry, if that was too blunt for you but it is exactly what is happening.

Cindy is just another parent (like Nicolas Berg's moronic father) who cares more for her agenda than her child's death. Platform over parentage. Cindy, you should be ashamed of yourself. Obviously your son volunteered to be in the military. Respect him by staying the hell out of things you do not understand...in this case the necessity of war.

She lost her son and you say she should be ashamed of herself. Stay out of things you do not understand, like losing a child. You owe her, and everyone who has ever lost a child, an apology. How dare you.

Once again, proof that the stupidest things said in comments come from the anonymous.

Let's be honest. Her vigil is NOT about her son. She (and the media) are exploiting the death for her own politics. Disgusting. And it loses any credibility as a "grieving parent". Just like Berg's dad, she is using her child's death as a political opportunity.

She is a poor excuse for a grieving parent. If she honestly was doing this all for her son she would (1) not need to meet with the President, much less a second time, (2) request that the media go away, (3) not grant interviews, and (4) stop injecting her politics into the issue.

As a parent who is grieving she should focus on her son. Period.

She is not...thus it is painfully obvious to the open-minded that she is a partisan hack.

We all experience losses. We all know grief. The intelligent ones know that tertiary topics (like her hate-Bush rhetoric) are not to be put above the topic of grief...the death.

Dead On, Tony.

War sucks, but is needed, and just like we were wining Vietnam before the politics from people who don't know how the real world works got into it, You can not cut and run.

Anonymous, you should be ashamed of yourself for chiming in and using someone's death as a political statement that George W. Bush eats Kittins.
