Cindy Sheehan Stretches Limits of “Grieving Mom” Protests
Anti-war protestor Cindy Sheehan, whose soldier son Casey was killed in Iraq, is calling for Bush's "impeachment," and for Israel to get out of Palestine! "You get America out of Iraq and Israel out of Palestine and you'll stop the terrorism," Sheehan declares.
"My son was killed in 2004. 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." (Drudge)
This has become something like a bad Moore “documentary”.
Everyone gave her the benefit of the doubt with the questionable recollection of her Bush visit in 2004. Everyone gave her the benefit of the doubt when her family said she was out on her own, pushing an agenda.
Now, I retract my benefit of the doubt. Upset over the loss of your son is one thing. To blame the President is one thing. To claim you wont pay your taxes (like Bush gets that money is his account?), for the loss of your son is something different. So, is she saying her son is worth one year of taxes? Is she saying that anyone who looses a child or spouse shouldn’t owe taxes for that year? This is a PR grab with low moral ethics, at best, and now she really is dishonoring the memory of her son.
And Israel out of Palestine? What has THAT got to do with Bush or her son? While everyone that questioned her motives were given the old “shame on you” speech, now they have be proven at least partially right. The press should be asking these questions now, instead of goading her on.
