"Peace Mom" cancels visits to Colorado
9News.com (Denver) ^

Posted on 09/03/2005 6:04:08 PM PDT by CO Gal

Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan has canceled three visits to Colorado after emotions over her protest outside President Bush's ranch boiled over at a church and college campus. A Glenwood Springs church voted Thursday not to allow Sheehan to give a speech scheduled for later this month after some members threatened to leave the church if she came.

Church member Mo Barz said he thinks it is inappropriate for the church to host a political speaker.

"I was definitely against having her," he said. "I felt all along the church should rescind any agreement they had to have her be there."

Sheehan has gained notoriety for her month-long protest outside Bush's ranch in Crawford, Texas and her demands to meet with him to discuss her 24-year-old son Casey's death in Iraq. Detractors have said she is demoralizing the troops and using her son's death to push a liberal platform.

The day after the church called off her visit there, Sheehan canceled other visits to the state, citing "more pressing needs elsewhere in the country," according to Karen Sjoberg, director of Grand Valley Peace and Justice, which had arranged for one of the visits.

Sheehan was scheduled to speak at Mesa State College in Grand Junction on Sept. 15. After the school received complaints that she would be appearing on campus, the school issued a statement saying it did not support or sponsor Sheehan's visit. Sheehan's camp then canceled the visit.

She also canceled a stop in Paonia.

The high altitude would probably cause her empty head to implode. I'm glad the fine people of Glenwood Springs recognize what the purpose of the church truly is.

She is going to find this a lot of place across America. Especially now with Katrina.

15 minute engagement is currently rescinded. Will be possibly extended again if the backlash against the Dems/MSM is so great over their behavior during this hurricane they need a new (or old) story to distract attention.

more pressing needs elsewhere in the country

The only senseable words out of the ditch witch. Darn right--get your busses to southland and put them to good use evacuating folks, then be a real patriot and divert your funding (wherever it comes from) to the relief effort as you help feed the refugees.

That's what I really want to see: Cindy the hash slinger.

A long time back, I was stationed at Lowry AFB. I have to say I had a great time whenever I ventured off base. Beautiful country.

Gosh, Cindy. After spending a month being pampered and coddled, it must really sting to realize nobody really cares about you anymore.

As long as the French Quarter is quiet, Cindy doesn't exist.

ROFL..yup..her 15 minutes are over and I bet she's going freakin nuts realizing that the vast majority of the U.S. isn't, and has NOT been behind her movement..she's being abandonded by those that only sought THEIR name in the spotlight and used her for that purpose..

She gave an interview to a Spanish paper a few days back, I wonder who on Gods green earth would give her one now..

Casey, you're a hero (and I mean that sincerely)..

This isn't good. We want her to come out and talk and continue to make her outlandish statements so more people see her for what she really is. And that's a left wing socialist shrill who is using her dead hero son as a cover for her ridiculous claims! And why hasn't she released a press statement about how she's going to give up her crusade to help the living who survived the hurricane.

I went up there Dec 1960, shipped out Aug 1961. One of my favorite memories was the gigantic chow hall where every time some poor kid doing KP dropped a dish and broke it the whole place erupted in thunderous, deafening applause.

That was on base. I met a lot of great young ladies off base; I had a beautiful time (to use a line from a Merle Haggard tune).

I think this is around the time when she starts trashing hotel rooms and walks out of gigs because they don't have the bowl of all-brown M&M's in her dressing room.

I was there in Sept. 62 till Apr. 63 electronics school. Right you are about the ladies, WOW. I remember a bar just off base I think the name of it was 'The Happy Cat'.

I was a FANG and we got to eat at the officers mess. But we also spent a lot of time at the park next to the zoo. What memories.

Hey, I was there too.

Not meaning to hijack the thread, but July-Nov 1964 duty at Lowry and what a great time to be there. AF Intel school, then back again in 1966 just before Nam.

What a great, great, great location. I miss it still.

I was sorry they shut the base down. It was a great place.
