Cindy Sheehan: Say Yes To Hillary, Two-Thousand And Never OpEd
EurAsia Review ^ | June 21, 2014 | Cindy Sheehan

Posted on 07/09/2014 7:37:12 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Right after Camp Casey the huge media circus/protest in front of George Bush’s ranch in Crawford, Texas in August of 2005, I was invited to the home of Producer/Director/Actor Rob Reiner to meet and have a chat. Also at that meeting was a major philanthropist (although I didn’t know it at the time) to all causes Clinton, wealthy Stephen Bing.

I naïvely believed that I was there because Rob Reiner and Steve Bing were against war. HAH! I was there because Rob and Steve were above all things (even peace and justice) pro-Democrat.

At this meeting, the suggestion was made to me that I should support the potential candidacy of then NY Senator Hillary Clinton for president in 2008. Bing looked me right in the eyes and said, “Senator Clinton is our only hope.”

“Our only hope for what? Perpetual war,” I asked. I also reminded Steve and Rob that she not only voted for the war my son and hundreds of thousands of others were needlessly and tragically murdered in, but she proudly did grunt work for the Bush administration in being a chief-Democratic Cheerleader for it. After which, Bing looked me right in the eyes again and said, “Mrs. Clinton is against the war, and she will come out against it when it is political advantageous to do so.”

Well, even though I am not a multi-multi-millionaire with fancy homes and a private jet, I would not sell my soul to the Reiners or Bing to support a person who was/is so thoroughly opposed to everything I believed in.

My suspicions about Hillary Clinton were confirmed in a meeting I had with her on Capitol Hill about a month later where she said that the US had to remain in Iraq to “honor” the sacrifices of those that had died after I told her that I didn’t want my son’s death honored with more murder and mayhem.

I suppose since Hillary is potentially running for POTUS in 2016, it has become “politically advantageous” for her to come out with “regret” for her vote, saying in her new book about her pro-war vote: “I wasn’t alone in getting it wrong. But I got it wrong. Plain and simple.”

Well, also “plain and simple,” millions of people are dead, wounded, displaced, lives ruined. That she can be so glib about being a dumb [expletive] while my son, and too many others, are dead forever really pisses me off.

With the Empire beating the drums for more war against Iraq, don’t believe a word this shill for Wall Street and the War Machine says about her Iraq vote or anything else—ALL WAR IS WRONG and anyone who votes for it is a murderer, period!

As Secretary of State, Hillary cackled hysterically when after a US bombardment of Libya, killing tens of thousands, Moammar Qadafi was slaughtered in the streets: “We came; we saw; he died.” (She’s as psychopathic as the male warmongers).

I not only don’t believe her “politically advantageous” admission, I don’t believe she was fooled into voting the way she did. A lot of us never bought what the Bush administration was selling (SEE, White House Iraq Group) and we weren’t in the Cat Bird’s Seat in DC like was she. All of these people (Hillary included) should be in prison for life, not out raking in the big dough and running for public office.

Please do not mistake that this exposé of Hillary Clinton, Two-Thousand and NEVER is an endorsement of whatever shill will be nominated by the Republicans that year, it’s not.

I am desperately disappointed that out of the ashes of Obama’s havoc wreaking on the world, a new and principled antiwar movement has not arisen and that people like Bing and Reiner did not one day say, “Hey, I do care about the world more than I care about Democrats.”

Sadly, what the hell will it take?

If I were near the top of the Republican Party, I'd be slipping this gal a couple of million dollars in early 2016 or earlier to go up against HillBillary or Fauxcahontas. She did tremendously well running to the left of Nancy Pelosi with hardly any money, beating the GOP candidate as an Independent.

When GWB was POTUS dumb Cindy was a cult hero of the left, America’s moral authority, and American’s moms speaking out for their kids and against senseless wars.

It was quite a show.

January 2009 when Obama took office the Dems/MSNBC threw Cindy off the bus and never mentioned her again.

Remember the Jersey girls?

Gotta love Cindy for going after Obama.

And Sarah was called an Obama stalker. Again the left accuses what they are guilty of supporting.

I have a certain amount of respect for crazy Cindy. She calls the Dems out on their hypocrisy with regard to war as something to protest under Republicans and ignore under Democrats. And considering the mess in Iraq, her son Casey’s death really does look like an awful waste.

At least she is true to her beliefs—Not a political hack who will change her opinion at the drop of a few dollars. She has learned the hardway that the Liberals are power hungry hypocrits. Sadly Many Republicans will sell out their beliefs too. She should start a new peace movement or at least oppose Hillary in the primary.

The only thing that happened is the wind started blowing from different direction and Democrats had to stay afloat in the political sea

But it will all be different when the war comes home and we wake up to the sound of local shopping malls being burned

I for one would welcome Mrs Sheehan’s return to the National dialog.

“Hey, I do care about the world more than I care about Democrats.”

She’s really a bit of a nut, but she makes some VERY valid points.

If only others had Hillary’s number as well as Cindy Sheehan does.

ALL WAR IS WRONG

It's only a war if two or more opposing groups fight each other.

When only one side fights, it's more properly termed a massacre.

Taken to its logical conclusion, there also shouldn't be any armed police.

QED she is an idiot.

“After which, Bing looked me right in the eyes again and said, “Mrs. Clinton is against the war, and she will come out against it when it is political advantageous to do so.”

Doesnt this just illustrate the hypocrisy of the left and Bing in particular? To them power is the thing. To heck with doing whats right and sticking by that.
