Skip to comments.Cindy Sheehan: Say Yes To Hillary, Two-Thousand And Never – OpEd
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 Bushs 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 didnt 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 didnt want my sons 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 wasnt 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, dont believe a word this shill for Wall Street and the War Machine says about her Iraq vote or anything elseALL 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. (Shes as psychopathic as the male warmongers).
I not only dont believe her politically advantageous admission, I dont 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 werent in the Cat Birds 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, its not.
I am desperately disappointed that out of the ashes of Obamas 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?
Who the hell is Cindy Sheehan?
the most prominent anti-war activist of the Bush years. She’s had her fifteen minutes
Oh how soon everyone forgets...
Looks like Jay Jay Carney in drag.
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.
Wow those cold sores look scary
Mother Sheehan returns to the surface after spending the last decade in the very bowels of the earth.
I was thinking she looks like a more masculine Carney :o)
Cindy Sheehan is the crazy woman who slept in a ditch across for GWB’s ranch in TX when he vacationed there one time during his presidency ..
I love camping outdoors too LOL
Poor dumb Cindy , used by Dems as their #1 victim and then spit out like flavorless gum by them.
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.
Robert Redford? lol
You might remember her better as “the bitch in the ditch”...jeez we haven’t has so much fun since then, except when the occupiers were pooping in the parks and screwing under the statues.
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.
