Some of Mother Sheehan's Gentle Musings
"We began the killing as soon as we stepped foot on these shores [of America] and the killing has gone on unabated for over 200 years."
"There has always been excuses for wars, but NONE of them have been good or valid."
"This country is not worth dying for.
America has been killing people on this continent since it was started."
"The U.S. government is a morally repugnant system.
9/11 was Pearl Harbor for the neo-conservatives agenda.
The Jewish Plot
"Am I emotional? Yes, my first born was murdered. Am I angry? Yes, he was killed for lies and for a PNAC Neo-Con agenda to benefit Israel."
"My son joined the Army to protect America, not Israel."
"Am I stupid? No, I know full-well that my son, my family, this nation, and this world were betrayed by a George Bush who was influenced by the neo-con PNAC agenda after 9/11."
"My first born was killed violently for a neo-con agenda that only benefits a very chosen few in this world."
George Bush and his neo-conservatives killed my son.
On Other Threats
"Is there yet an American who can not clearly see that Dick Cheney...will say whatever he thinks is required to ultimately cause wealth and power to move to himself and to his friends? ...need I defile this holy place with words like "Haliburton" and "Kellog, Brown & Root" and "torture" and "US weapons industry"?"
Is there anyone in America who cannot yet see that Donald Runsfeld is a liar...that he, as with Hitler and Stalin....will say anything so long as he thinks it will help shape the world to his own liking? Is there even one, sane adult among us who cannot see that Donald Rumsfeld is a threat to our nation's security and to peace on our beloved earth?
"As soft-spoken and sincere-sounding as Paul Wolfowitz is, is there yet any sane adult in this country who's skin does not crawl when this murderous liar opens his mouth and speaks? Am I the only person in this room who clearly sees that Paul Wolfowitz is a threat to our nation's security...and to peace on our beloved earth?"
Our Elected Leaders
"Our country has been overtaken by murderous thugs...gangsters who lust after fortunes and power; never caring that their addictions are at the expense of our loved ones, and the blood of innocent people near and far."
"We've watched these thugs parade themselves before the whole world as if they are courageous advocates for Christian moral values...and for the spread of democracy."
"The US government is now ruled by murderous hypocrites...criminals who should be arrested, charged appropriately, confined behind bars."
"In their secret hiding places, while celebrating newly won fortunes with their fellow brass, these men must surely congratulate themselves with orgies of carnal pleasure as they mock the dwindling multitudes who are yet so blind as to mistake them for God's devoted servants."
"Every member of Bush's executive branch (past and present) and every member of Congress who voted to give George the authority to invade Iraq have innocent blood on their hands. For the next State of the Union address, maybe the hypocrites in Congress should shamefacedly display blood-soaked hands, instead of proudly wriggling fingers stained with ink to symbolize sham Iraqi elections."
"Then we have this lying bastard, George Bush..."
"So anyway that filth-spewer and warmonger, George Bush was speaking..."
"We can't let somebody rise to the top who will pardon these war criminals. Because they need to go to prison for what they've done in this world. We can't have a pardon. They need to pay for what they've done."
"Another thing that I'm doing is - - my son was killed in 2004, so I'm not paying my taxes for 2004. If I get a letter from the IRS, I'm gonna say, you know what, this war is illegal; this is why this war is illegal. This war is immoral; this is why this war is immoral. You killed my son for this. I don't owe you anything. And if I live to be a million, I won't owe you a penny."
"And I want them to come after me, because unlike what you've been doing with the war resistance, I want to put this frickin' war on trial. And I want to say, "You give me my son, and I'll pay your taxes."
"You get America out of Iraq and Israel out of Palestine and you'll stop the terrorism."
"When I was growing up, it was Communists'. Now it's Terrorists'. So you always have to have somebody to fight and be afraid of, so the war machine can build more bombs, guns, and bullets and everything."
The biggest terrorist is George W. Bush.
Support For Troops
"I DEFINITELY think that we should support war resisters in the military. "
"I know several people who are being court-martialed, and they need support--they need monetary support, they need our moral support, and they need to know that were with them."
"We need to encourage more people to do this. "
Concern For Others
"Why does Terry Schiavo deserve to live more than my son, Spc. Casey Austin Sheehan?"
There are some more of her insights collected here:
Cindy Sheehan -- In Her Own Words
And just think if she was protesting Clinton she would have been killed
This looney b**ch should be dangling from a rope.
I'm writing this letter slow because I know you can't read fast.
I don't live where we did when you left home for Crawford. I read in the newspaper that most accidents happen within 20 miles from your home, so I moved. I won't be able to send you the address because the last family that lived here took the house numbers when they moved so that they wouldn't have to change their address.
This place is really nice. It even has a washing machine. I'm not sure it works so well though, last week I put a load in and pulled the chain and haven't seen them since. The weather isn't bad here. It only rained twice last week, the first time for three days and the second time for four days.
About that coat you wanted me to send you, your good friend, Michael Moore said it would be too heavy to send in the mail with the buttons on, so we cut them off and put them in the pockets. Your other friend, Barbara Streisand, locked her keys in the car yesterday. We were really worried because it took her two hours to get me and your father out. Your sister had a baby this morning, but I haven't found out if you are an aunt or uncle. The baby looks just like Martin Sheen. Your adopted Uncle Ted Kennedy, fell in a whiskey vat last week. Some men tried to pull him out, but he fought them off valiantly and drowned. We had him cremated and he burned for three days. Three of your friends went off a bridge in a pick-up truck. Uncle Jesse Jackson was driving. He rolled down the window and swam to safety. Your other two friends were in back. They drowned because they couldn't get the tailgate down.
There isn't much more news at this time. Nothing much has happened. Hope you get a trailer in Crawford soon.
Your ex-husband Bob
P.S. I was going to send you some money down to your new camp in Crawford but the envelope was already sealed.
Deep Thoughts.... ; ' )
You are great!
Remind me to stay on your good side... :-)
what a harpy.
She is ugly and as she is crazy. I think a line from Dennis Leary in the movie the "The Ref" ia appropriate:
Your son isn't dead lady! He's hiding!
Too many crocodile tears from this ditz. She's a fraud. I just don't think very highly of someone who will exploit the death of her own son in order to achieve fame and celebrity.
The face of a vicious, duplicitous, anti-American anti-Semite.
Cindy can go back to Vacaville and pound granola.
Okay...now THAT's funny!
Does she think her son was a fascist?
What does one have to do with the other? Kook.
The only thing worse than a Useful Idiot is a useless one.
I think for once I am in favor of increased government funding for mental health programs.
