Skip to comments.Sheehan & Co.: Nothing to say but "I hate you"
Posted on 09/01/2005 6:44:53 PM PDT by 88keyman
The Left contributes nothing to the intellectual marketplace when it has but a single, paranoid notion -- that the United States can do nothing but evil.
Sheehan, the Left's latest hero, expresses that view in multiple, delusional ways: "Since we first stepped on this continent," she barks, "we have been responsible for death and destruction" ... And my favorite: America's greatest talent is "killing people."
All of which sum to the sentiment at the core of Left-thought everywhere: "This country is not worth dying for."
But such single-minded hate and paranoia is worse than just thoughtless and anti-American. It pointedly ignores, and implicitly embraces, true evil: Saddam's penchant for filling mass graves with children, for instance, or the Iranian mullahs' sponsorship of terrorism ...
Worse still, such non-thought inevitably devolves into vicious fantasy, like the anti-Semitic canard that it's the Jews who cause our problems, the Jews who bring us war.
"My son," Sheehan rants, "joined the Army to protect America, not Israel." "It's okay for Israel to occupy Palestine ... but it's not okay for Syria to be in Lebanon." (Conversely, one wonders: if Syria's longtime occupation of Lebanon never troubled her, why does Israel's "occupation" of "Palestine" fill her with such rage?) And foulest of all: "Neo-conservatives [read: Jews] killed my son."
No wonder Sheehan is praised by neo-Nazi David Duke and by the white supremacists at National Vanguard, where she "has moved the hearts of millions" for recognizing that "Jewish power is toxic to any society that allows it to exist."
At the least, Sheehan and her hate-abetting hangers-on -- who now include race baiter Al Sharpton, sixties relic Joan Baez and fake president Martin Sheen -- should be treated as what they are: non-contributors to the marketplace of meaningful ideas.

Hey Marty, keep in mind, you are NOT the President so keep your piehole shut. I cannot stand that man.
sheehan says she has been talking to her dead son, so that shows just how much she can be believed. She is off her rocker.
She dishonors herself with every breath...and is aligning herself to that of a traitor to our Nation and way of life.
Pray that her heart is changed and her eyes opened.
Noble man, Casey, sad situation, and looney Mom....wouldn't be the first time .....I'm guessing that he joined to reject his mom's long held anti-US beliefs....
ice big white space in your post #5. Did you have anything else to say?
