Follow-Up: Cindy Sheehan Writes She Often Thinks About Killing President Bush (Book Excerpt)
Wednesday, September 13, 2006 | Kristinn

Posted on 09/13/2006 10:11:41 AM PDT by kristinn

Last week, Radar Online published a quickie review of Cindy Sheehan's new book, Peace Mom, that featured a mention of Sheehan's fantasies of going back in time and killing an infant George W. Bush.

After the story was posted on FR, it was picked up by Drudge, Hot Air, Rush Limbaugh and Fox News--and went no further. The mainstream media, which vigorously promoted Sheehan last year as the woman who simply wanted to meet President Bush to ask him, "For what noble cause did my son Casey die in Iraq?" has failed to report on Sheehan's desire to kill President Bush.

I bought a copy of Sheehan's book at a D.C. bookstore where she is scheduled to do a booksigning in two weeks. Here is the text of Cindy Sheehan's thoughts on killing George Bush:

Page 29: I often contemplate the "baby Hitler scenario" when I think of George Bush. It's the time-machine fantasy. If I had a time-machine (it always looks like H.G. Wells's invention), and if I rode in it back to the time George Bush was a baby, could I kill him and save my son's life and the life of so many other people.? I always come to the same conclusion: No, I couldn't kill anyone, not even a monster.

It is really dangerous to keep wondering over and over again if you could kill someone. To me, that means you haven't resolved the issue and still have the desire in your heart. One of these days, Cindy Sheehan could tell herself, "Yes, I could do that" and become another Squeaky Fromme.

BTW, this has been reported to the Secret Service.

She should have long since been arrested for stalking. There's a line between protest and criminal behavior which she has long since crossed many times.

This witch is seriously deranged. Someone in her family really ought to convince her to commit herself to an institution before she gets herself into serious trouble.

On a less compassionate note, if she wishes to try to make good on her fantasy, I look forward to seeing her cut down in the streets like the dog that she is.

If it was me who wrote that drivel, I'd probably be in custody by now. Pick her up and put her in a home. She's nuts.

Cindy, if you had shot yourself before you got pregnant, Casey wouldn't be an issue now.

If you had shot Casey's best friend, he might be alive now.

If you had shot your husband, he might be alive now.

If you'd worn a pink shirt instead of a blue one on June 15th, 2003, he might be alive now.

Good grief, her obssession is dangerous.

The worst thing is, I don't believe she's in mourning for Casey, as much as she is glad to have a reason to be "relevant" (and I use that term loosely) so she can spout her hate rhetoric against President Bush. The only reason she ever mentions her son, who was truly an American hero, is just so she can try to imply that she should have free reign to say whatever it is she wants because she lost her son.

I'd guess the Sheehag got a LOT of help getting this screed scrawled onto her construction paper without tearing it.

She's got a lot of "intellectual" followers, you know.

Medea "Squeaky Fromme" Benjamin

That's funny, Manson groupie look alike Medea isn't wearing her, "What Would Charlie Do?" button...

While under the wing of Code Pink, Sue Niederer had fantasies of shooting the President in the "groined area" over and over again. Now Cindy Sheehan, with Code Pink's Tiffany Burns as her spokesperson, has a recurring fantasy of doing harm to the President.

I wonder what part Medea Benjamin authoring three books on the Cuban Revolution and contributing a chapter on Marxist Zapatista leader Subcommandante Marcos plays in these matters?

When Niederer's violent fantasies became bad publicity, Code Pink dropped her like a hot rock. I fear Sheehan will harm herself when Code Pink unceremoniously dumps her after she's outlived her usefulness to the "revolution".

So is this morbid fantasy of hers supposed to prompt sympathy from the reader? You know, "oh, what pain she must be in to think such things."

I would have (did have) sympathy for Cindy Sheehan as I would any parent who has lost a child -- in a war or in any other circumstances. That has to be devastating. I think of my own sons and I can't even imagine it. But Cindy has turned this grieving "peace mom" thing into a pretty sweet gig and, while I still honor her son's sacrifice, I don't give a damn anymore about how Cindy feels about it.

If she's gone off the edge, then there comes a point at which she is not completely responsible for her actions and words, and those whose cause she serves would do her a big favor by acting as human beings and helping Cindy to quietly fade away. Fat chance of that, right?

It's so Democrat though -- she's not woman enough to think about killing him as a man, but she's got no trouble killing a helpless baby.

Following President Kennedy's assassination, liberals charged his conservative critics with having created a "climate of hate" that bred violence and made the deed possible. Yet Kennedy's most severe critics produced nothing remotely comparable to the hate-filled invective of the Bush haters.

It would be really funny if Peace Mother Sheehan (PMS) actually did travel through time, and was immediately eaten by a Morlock.

Or Karl Rove could run over her in a suspicious Delorean.

Totally agree. I'll bet her "cause" was Casey, Casey's welfare, maybe to support Casey, and Casey, Casey, Casey. So when the poor lad died, she didn't have anything to cling to (I'm guessing the marriage wasn't too hot at that point anyway). Now she's found something new to cling to, she's all wrapped up in it. In other words, she's a nutcase.

Its just like the movie "The Time Machine" by Dreamworks. (http://timemachine.countingdown.com/#) The poor invetor wants to go back in time to save his fiancee from being shot to death by a mugger. He succeeds in doing so, only to have her ran over by a horse and buggy. It is then when he relizes that no matter how many times he can go back in time he can never save her. Everyone has there time to leave this world.

So my compliments to you for bringing this point up. She could have shot and killed anyboby, but that doesn't mean Casey would be alive. If he didn't join the Army who's to say that he wouldn't have died in something like a car accident. Some people are honored because they lived a noble life. Some people are honored because they died a noble death. Casey falls into both these categories.

Unfortunately, the Feds won't touch her. Wouldn't be politically correct.

IMHO, Cindy is but one of a whole bunch of RATS that should be charged with various crimes: treason, sedition, threats against the POTUS, etc.

Should happen, but won't happen. Which sure sends the correct signal, right?

If, as in similar stories, the time-traveler has to go sans clothing, the Morlock might just lose its appetite.

Or Karl Rove could run over her in a suspicious Delorean.

Heh. I'll bet the Karl Rove Weather Machine runs on a Mr. Fusion, too. :-)

I was also thinking that it'd be quite likely that Cindy would be caught by Barbara Bush and summarily dispatched right next to the infant GWB's crib. Ironically, that would result in Casey never enjoying life at all.

Cindy's ex-husband would've fared better, though. Hey, if she wants to play "What if...", we can be endlessly creative.

Funny how it never even occurs to her to wonder about going back in time and killing Usama Bin Laden or Saddam Hussein or both in their cradles. Then a lot of people, her son included, would most definitely still be with us.

Just a little side note here. I worked with and knew quite well the guy whose .45 auto was used by Fromme. He thought he was making quite a hit with her one night when he was out on the town, let her stay at his place and showed her the gun, naturally she took it.

He really had his butt hauled over the coals by the FBI! Nothing was done though when he managed to convince them he was just trying to get laid and that she took the gun without him knowing it. He passed away a few years ago.

Hopefully, if Sheenan does flip over the egdge, she won't do any better job at shooting a president than Squeaky did.

The events of 9/11 would have occurred even without George Bush and in all likelyhood another Republican president would come to the same conclusion and Casey would still be dead.

There are many leftist nutcases like Sheehan out there weighing murdering the President.

This is why this leftist movie out now that shows the assassination of George Bush is such a dangerous piece of propaganda. It can push one of these nutrolls over the edge

I figured she was doing "free peeps" PR for the movie the liberals are vaunting about "Killing Bush".

I had this weird dream last night: That the Islamofascists were planning to murder Cindy Sheehan and to drink the blood from her corpse: They loved her so much.

The dream woke me out of a sound sleep.I had to think about it.

The reality is; Cindy wouldn't mind -- she's on a jihad mission of her own. And her followers wouldn't be bothered by either and because they too are "suicide bombers" in their own belief set.

Instead of 72 virgins, what would Cindy be promised as awaiting her on the other side?

I had to get up and sit outside, at this point.

72 Casey's would never be sufficient for Cindy Sheehan.

The murder of the President? That too, would be insufficient for Cindy Sheehan.

Bottomline, which finally allowed me to go back to sleep? The recognition that nothing would ever satisfy Cindy Sheehan, or be a reward, and because she is in perennial purgatory, signed onto with her own hand, her belief sets have nothing to actually do with Casey or the President.

A strange night. I'll wager she has lots of strange nights involving confused and horrid Out of Body experiences.

Last night, I think I was definitely given a sending about what her inner "life" is like.

Kristinn -- Cindy Sheehan is a public "figure". Perhaps HER public would like to hear about a film being vaunted around the world involving her being horrifically raped and then methodically dismembered? Obviously, liberals get off on this disgusting, and lowest-of-the-low, snuff stuff.

I'm grateful the secret service and others are looking into those who wish the President harm. But I do get what the fascists are up to: Under the guise of "free political speech", attempting to raise the rhubarb that it's "okay" to express the wish to murder a sitting President.

It's not okay, and this is a crime.

Well, she definitely has out of her mind experiences.

I've only skimmed the book so far. But she does write of Casey visiting her and her family shortly after his death.

I'm glad I didn't have your dream, yikes! I think the left would be quite happy if they could have a corpse to venerate and propagandize. They've tried with Rachel Corrie and Marla Ruzicka, but those two never caught on with the general public.

Perhaps they'll do to Cindy what was done to Howard Beale at the end of Network. 'Cancel' her because her ratings are too low.

As for me, I'd like to see her find the peace the Lord provides and leave behind the evil she's surrounded herself with.
