Cindy Sheehan detested by Venezuelans
The American Thinker ^ | 26 Jan 2006 | A.M. Mora y Leon

Posted on 01/26/2006 10:02:40 AM PST by Kitten Festival

Cindy Sheehan went to Caracas, Venezuela to put her thumb in the eye of the Bush administration. She was leading the World Social Forum, a far-left “alternative” to the World Economic Forum in Switzerland, to cavort with fellow leftists.

Less well known was that her trip was sponsored by the Venezuelan foreign ministry. The price of that was obligatory praise of Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez, who’s rapidly plunging in the opinion polls for his incompetence and corruption.

“I admire President Chavez for his strength to resist the United States,” she said.

Sheehan, who knows nothing of Venezuela, was easy to persuade to say that Chavez was her hero. But by paying formal obeisance to her paymaster, she showed she’ll say just about anything if the price is right. Apparently, the price isn’t very high, either.

It turns out not everyone is amused. Venezuela’s Spanish-language news bulletin boards are aflame over the Sheehan appearance and I-love-Chavez statements. These local Venezuelans have taken to posting ugly pictures of her and condemning her almost as badly as they condemn another U.S. zero, former President Jimmy Carter, who knowingly certified fraud in Venezuela’s 2004 recall referendum.

It’s only Thursday and already they’ve had a bellyful of these leftists in Caracas – even condemning their garbage, their mess and their telltale marijuana odor.

But there’s an extra-special particular rage at the vile mercenary nature of Sheehan. Along with most Latin Americans, most Venezuelans did not support the Iraq war, which is one reason why Sheehan’s pro-Chavez statements are such a noxious wake up call.

Even if you can’t read Spanish, there are plenty of pictures and signs of local Venezuelan fury here.

Maybe we should invite them over to Free Republic to get some material.

I have to chuckle at knuckle heads like SINdy SheMan.

Her stated gripe with the Bush Administration is that she thinks it should not interfere with foreign governments. To prove her point, she sticks her nose into the politics of a FOREIGN GOVERNMENT!

“I admire President Chavez for his strength to resist the United States,” she said.

Could AG not just 'pull' her passport - for a while, at least - make her STAY there.

If not then the least that might be mustered for her would be a 'go back to Venezuela'. . .campaign for Cindy.

It is just incredible. . .I wish Belefonte had stayed there as well. And yes. . .Jimmy Carter. . .the list of Libs really is ad nauseum.

Its no wonder these people hate AMERICA.

A senile Pres and a current media moonbat celebrity are the only contact they have with us.

Not positive role models.

It's been said before but must be stated again until someone gets it... time to dust off US sedition and treason laws.

So she flies down there in a private jet, drives around in a limo and gets paid tons of cash to make her speech all while starving peasants watch from the sideline.

It's okay - we dispise her in the US too. :)

What is it with leftists and pot? Does it help them sustain their delusional beliefs.

Strangely we live in a world where no lie is big enough or hateful thing vile enough to answer for it. Cindy Sheehan, the President of Iran, and multiple US democratic Senators come to mind.

Lets read the latest Op-Ed from Cindy. How the main stream news can make her out to be a normal American Mom is beyond me.

Published on Sunday, January 22, 2006 by CommonDreams.org
Matriotism
by Cindy Sheehan

Much as I wish I could take credit for the word "matriotism," another woman wrote to me and gave me the concept. I was so intrigued by the word that I have been meditating on the possible ideology behind it, and a new paradigm for true and lasting peace in the world.

Before I dive into the concept of Matriotism, let's explore the word "patriotism." Dictionary.com defines it as: love of country and willingness to sacrifice for it. When we all know that patriotism in the US means: exploiting others' love for country by sending them and their children off to sacrifice for my bank balance!

There have been volumes written about patriotism, defining it, supporting it, challenging the notion of it, etc. I believe the notion of patriotism has been expediently and nefariously exploited, and used to lead our nation into scores of disastrous and needless wars. The idea of patriotism has virtually wiped out entire generations of our precious young people and has allowed our nation's leaders to commit mass murder on an unprecedented scale. The vile sputum of "if you aren't with us, then you are against us" is basically the epitome of patriotism gone wild. After the tragedy of 9/11 we were on our way to becoming a fledgling Matriotic society until our leaders jumped on the bandwagon of inappropriate and misguided vengeance to send our young people to die and kill in two countries that were no threat to the USA or to our way of life. The neocons exploited patriotism to fulfill their goals of imperialism and plumder.

This sort of patriotism begins when we enter kindergarten and learn the nationalist "Pledge of Allegiance." It transcends all sense when we are taught the "Star Spangled Banner," a hymn to war. In our history classes the genocide of the Native American peoples is glossed over as we learn about the spread of American Imperialism over our continent, though it wasn't named until the 1840's, when the doctrine of Manifest Destiny was expounded to justify the USA's conquest of and "civilizing" of Mexican territories and Native American populations. Manifest Destiny sought to spread the "the boundaries of freedom" to the American Continent, with the notion that we have a special mission from God. Sound familiar?

All though school, we are brainwashed into believing that some how our leaders are always right and certainly have our best interests at heart when they wave the flag and convince us to hate fellow human beings who stand in the way of making immense profits from war. As Samuel Johnson said, patriotism is the "last refuge of a scoundrel."

Matriotism is the opposite of patriotism…not to destroy it, but to be a yin to its yang, and balance out the militarism of patriotism.

Not everyone is a mother, but there is one universal truth that no one can dispute no matter how hard they try (and believe me, some will try): Everyone has a mother! Mothers give life, and if the child is lucky, mothers nurture life. And if a man has had a nurturing mother he will already have a base of Matriotism.

A Matriot loves his/her country but does not buy into the exploitive phrase of "My country right or wrong." (As Chesterton said, that's like saying, "My mother, drunk or sober.") A Matriot knows that her country can do a lot of things right, especially when the government is not involved. For example, I know of no other citizens of any country who are more personally generous than those of America. However, a Matriot also knows that when her country is wrong, it can be responsible for murdering thouands upon thousands of innocent and unsuspecting humans. A true Matriot would never drop an atomic bomb or bombs filled with white phosphorous, carpet bomb cities and villages, or control drones from thousands of miles away to kill innocent men, women and children.

There is one most important thing that matriots would never do, however, and this is the key to stopping killing to solve problems: a matriot would never send her child or another mother's child to fight nonsense wars…and would march into a war herself that she considered just to protect her child from harm. Aha! Matriots would fight their own battles, but take a dim view of having to do so, and would seldom resort to violence to solve conflict! Patriots cowardly hide behind the flag and eagerly send young people to die to fill their own pocketbooks.

Women flocked to Camp Casey in August to run the huge enterprise and work for peace, and women from all over the US and the world have invited me to visit and speak and advocate for true and lasting peace. Men, who are in touch with the matriot inside of them, have also been important to the cause of eradicating war.

Whether you are a male or female Matriot, Code Pink Alert, endorsed by Gold Star Families for Peace, is calling for an International Day of Peace on March 8 th…called for, organized by, and supported by women. Women and men with matriotic tendencies can get more info and endorse the call for peace at: www.womensaynotowar.org. It is past time for we Matriots to get together to stridently call for an end to the immoral bloodshed in Iraq.

I know one thing from the bottom of my heart. My son, Casey, who was an Eagle Scout and a true American patriot, was not served well by his idea of patriotism. I will never forgive myself for not trying to counteract more the false patriotism he was raised on, with a true sense of Matriotism.

I also know that the women of the world who don't have a voice, such as the mothers of Iraq who are struggling just to survive in their needlessly destroyed country, are counting on us women who do have voices to use them to end George Bush's manifestly idiotic doctrine of preemptive wars of aggression based on the justification that "I think that country might be dangerous to me and my pals."

War will end forever when we matriots stand up and say: "No, I am not giving my child to the fake patriotism of the war machine which chews up my flesh and blood to spit out obscene profits."

"It is not for him to pride himself who loveth his own country, but rather for him who loveth the whole world. The earth is but one country and mankind its citizens." ~ Baha'u'llah
Matriotism above all is a commitment to truth and to celebrate the dignity of all life.
