An Evening with Cindy Sheehan

WAAH! Nobody Likes Me! – An Evening with Cindy Sheehan and Bill Ayers

 

Stephanie Hitt writes a thought provoking piece on the Leftists night out with Commie, American hating liberal figureheads of the past.

http://www.americanthinker.com/2010/06/waah_nobody_likes_me_an_evenin_1.html

One observation Stephanie Hitt makes is this:

“Despite being the least focused and least strident of the three speakers, Cindy Sheehan was in many ways the most insightful. In addition to admitting that her speech was freer under Bush (under Bush, she never spent a night or more than eight hours in jail and never had a restraining order issued against her; under Obama, she was once jailed for 52 hours, and the White House has a restraining order against her), she also questioned why under Obama, the antiwar movement doesn’t seem as important or interesting. In my favorite analogy of the night, she said she felt like the Maytag Repairman of activists. Without actually answering these questions or even expressing a curiosity about this apparent irony, she was able to at least posit that the antiwar movement, when it was popular, was really an anti-Bush movement and that without Bush, no one seems interested in protesting progressive issues.  “

Can you remember back, so many years ago, when Cindy Sheehan was given a place of importance in the world of Liberalism? She had those public speaking engagements where the press outnumbered her fans ten to one. But we had to listen to her message about the war. Most Americans knew Sheehan was just a tool of the left to get at the Bush administration but the leaders of the Left would never admit that was true. Until now; and they add insult to injury with President Potty-mouth putting Cindy in jail for 52 hours and getting a restraining order against her. Welcome to the Regime Cindy. Here is the government you wanted to replace Bush, and now you have less than before. Less freedom, less of a voice, and less money and opportunity for employment.

 President Obama, the first Post-American president.

    At least she let the press attend her events. Unlike Miss Bendy Straws from the Great White North who gives closed door speeches in China/ And the only info we have is right wing hearsay that tries to say lots of people come see her. Also, Sheehan doesn’t charge obscene amounts of money for her events. All of those “prominent right wing” figures love those expensive dinner speeches. So much for that “little simple soccer mom” image.

    Less freedom, less of a voice, and less money and opportunity for employment.

    Bullshit. Only reason why we have less freedom is Bush took it away with the Patriot Act. And it was also Bush who allowed wiretapping and putting people in prison without charges.

    President Obama, the first Post-American president.

    I hope that’s true. I so hated the America of two years ago. The America of old, rich white guys pushing their racism, sexism, homophobia and Christianity on everyone. The America where corporations and big business were in charge. The America that declares war on other nations with no reason at all. The America that doesn’t allow homosexuals to get married or serve openly in the military.

    If we’re now post-THAT-America, then I say it’s about damn time.

      Well, PolarCzar, Americans WANT to hear what Sarah Palin has to say. That is why they pay. Cindy on the other hand, well even when the media and George Soros had her on a retainer, only listened to what she said because it helped advance their agenda. In other words, Cindy was one of their useful idiots.

      Palin is her own woman, the opposite of Cindy…(IMHO)

      PolarCzar – “I hope that’s true. I so hated the America of two years ago. The America of old, rich white guys pushing their racism, sexism, homophobia and Christianity on everyone.”


      Your image of America doesn’t sound anything like the America I have known. I think as far back to the Reagan years and I do not have memories as you describe. However I do recall having Liberals demanding I feel “White Guilt” for being white, and a potential “slave owner” even though that could never be true. I recall homosexuals forcing their agenda upon me and my family, even in public schools and college. I recall attacks against the Christian faith to remove it from the public sector. I recall how liberals became anti-conservative bigots and tried to criminalize our beliefs.

      Where exactly do you live that you are in a place where Christianity is promoted? It sure isn’t the godless America I have come to know.

      • polarbear20 says:

        Funny you mention Reagan, he’s what I see as the face of “that America”. 😉

        Homosexuals were forcing their agenda on your family? Really? They tried to force you and your family to be gay? LMMFAO!! I’ve been to public school and now college, no one’s ever tried to force me to be gay like they did to you. Should I be insulted? LMMFAO!! 😀 😀

        Oh, I know exactly what you mean here. Because homosexuals want to be treated like the human beings they are and they want their relationships to be legitimate under the law, the retarded right calls that “forcing an agenda”. Apparently treating people like humans is an “agenda”. In other words, say there was a law against punks getting married. And public opinion from red state hicks was low (not unlike reality). Me trying to plead my case that “punks are people too” and “we should be allowed to get married”, you would call ‘forcing my agenda on your family’. Which when you say it that way makes it sound like I’m coming into your house and throwing out all your boring old man albums and replacing them with punk CDs after I shave your head into a mohawk!! lol

    It’s funny – when George W. Bush was in office, Cindy Sheehan could have a mere 20 fellow protestors outside his ranch in Crawford and every liberal news outlet would cover it ad nauseam as if it were an MLK civil rights march, (but they try their best to ignore the massive tea party movement that includes millions of Americans nationwide) proclaiming this attention whore as some kind of 1st Amendment hero who was bravely speaking truth to power but once their guy got into office, she continued to protest but they didn’t want to hear it anymore. It’s only acceptable to shout down a U.S. President if said President happens to be a Republican, otherwise it is viewed as disrespectful, and treasonous.

    At least she let the press attend her events. Unlike Miss Bendy Straws from the Great White North who gives closed door speeches in China/ And the only info we have is right wing hearsay that tries to say lots of people come see her. Also, Sheehan doesn’t charge obscene amounts of money for her events. All of those “prominent right wing” figures love those expensive dinner speeches.

    It’s nice to know that the fetching former Governor of Alaska still lives deep inside your head. She seems to be constantly on your mind, and you look for any reason to mention her. By the way, stalking is still illegal, just letting ya know! 😉

    Cindy Sheehan cannot charge any exorbitant amount to appear & speak anywhere, because noone is really interested in what she has to say anymore, now that Bush is enjoying his well deserved retirement. Sarah Palin on the other hand, can simply name her price & conditions, and they will be eagerly met. She is like “Midas” with the golden touch on the political front, she draws massive crowds & raises loads of cash everywhere she goes, and a very large majority of the candidates who she chooses to endorse & support go on to win their races, an inconvenient “truth” that you pretend not to notice.

    Bullshit. Only reason why we have less freedom is Bush took it away with the Patriot Act. And it was also Bush who allowed wiretapping and putting people in prison without charges.

    And it kept us safe, which is why Obama chose to continue all those policies even though he always strives to be the “anti-Bush”.

    I hope that’s true. I so hated the America of two years ago. The America of old, rich white guys pushing their racism, sexism, homophobia and Christianity on everyone. The America where corporations and big business were in charge. The America that declares war on other nations with no reason at all.

    You seem obsessed with race, I’m sensing a bit of the famed “White guilt” that we’re constantly hearing about. I thought all of this would end once we elected a Black President, but the race baiters of any ethnicity just will not let go of their livelihood, it garners them too much money & attention.

    • hybridtalk1 says:

      Hacksaw, I really think our guy PolarCzar is deeply in love with Sarah Palin. He follows her every move and thinks about her all the time.

      XOXOXO —>

    i’ll say it again………….the “race traders” like sharpton, obama, PB are only in it for the fame, money & notoriety it brings and NOTHING else.
    also, again, GET OVER IT!!!!! it’s ancient HISTORY!
    everyone is responsible for their OWN success (or the lack of it)

    Off-topic again. Despite pb instructing me on how to post a blog, I have NOTHING on the top of the Clevelandfoxers homepage that allows me to do that!
    So……how about that Republican from Texas yesterday apologizing to BP for all the grilling he was getting! (Oh no, he didn’t! Oh HELL yes, he did!) SERIOUSLY??????? Are those oil fumes wafting in from the Gulf starting to affect people’s brains in Texas?! LOL

    • hybridtalk1 says:

      I can’t wait for the Congress to start investigating Fannie-Mae and Freddie-Mac with the same enthusiasm. After all, if they want to investigate corruption at the top of an organization, start there. Then I look forward to them investigating the “global warming” hoax and get to the bottom of the years of falsified data these organizations produced.

    • polarbear20 says:

      Lunatic Michelle Bachmann from Minnesota said something on Wednesday in defense of BP too. Also, John BONER from Ohio, sadly, originally said BP shouldn’t have to pay the entire bill for fixing THEIR fuckup. Apparently Mr. Socialism, AHHHHHH!!! cries “socialist” when it comes to the taxpayers buying health care for the poor, but is fine with the taxpayers paying to fix someone else’s fuckup.

      They say this is going to be “Obama’s Katrina”. I think this is gonna be another Katrina, in that it lowers public opinion of the GOP again. They’re useless. Lead, follow or get out of the way. The GOP has proven they can’t lead over the past 8 years as well as with this situation, they obviously cared more about oil profits than the environment and worker safety during those “closed door oil policy meetings” Cheney held with Big Oil execs. They can’t follow either. They do the opposite of what Obama says. If Obama wants BP to pay for the fuckup, they call him socialist. Yet they also come out and say they want taxpayers to pay part of the bill.

      It’s time for the GOBP to GET OUT OF THE WAY!! Let the adults, ie the Liberals, take care of it.

      He wasn’t apologizing to BP for the harsh questioning, he was lamenting the fact that they were “coerced” to put $20 billion into a pot that is controlled solely by politicians, under threats of destructive litigation in a manner that would be expected to be coming more from a loan shark or mob enforcer, than a U.S. President.

        And the President was damn RIGHT to make them put in the 20 billion. That 20 billion needs to be just the down payment. BP better expect to be paying out shit tons more money over the years to come. aside from the cleanup bill which BP needs to PAY IN FULL, no questions asked; all those fishermen who depend on that sea for their career, guess who’s gonna be paying them until the ocean recovers? Those eleven men who died on that unsafe oil rig, those widows better be getting their just compensation. BP didn’t just fuck up our environment, our oceans, our wildlife and our planet, they also fucked up countless lives. And for that they need to pay dearly, and the President cannot possibly ‘tear them a new asshole” big enough for this. In a perfect world, BP would cease to exist. They’re a company of the past. Or at least they are to me. I’ll never buy gas at a BP ever again. I could be out of gas, I’d rather walk.

    Agree, but none of that is likely to happen unless the GOP takes at least 1 House of Congress in November. Fannie & Freddie are directly responsible for the housing crisis, but they have been lining politicians’ pockets for years and have been getting fiercely protected because of it.

    This destructive oil spill is actually like 2 bad situations that U.S. Presidents have struggled with, all rolled into one. It’s like Hurricane Katrina in the sense that it is yet another catastrophe affecting gulf coast States, in which the response by the federal government is perceived as both slow & ineffective. It’s also like the Iran hostage crisis that crippled Jimmy Carter’s presidency – the same maddening counting of days is occurring and although this leak probably won’t last for 444 days, every additional day that oil does gush into the ocean is more harmful to the “Community Organizer in Chief”, who’s incompetence due to his radical liberal leanings and absent of any prior leadership or management experience is embarrassingly obvious, and now even being admitted & addressed by former Obamatrons.

    As for real leadership in this unfortunate situation, it is being demonstrated on a daily basis by Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, Alabama Governor Bob Riley and Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour, all Republicans , I might add. 8) Governors Barbour & Riley were both serving in their current jobs during the devastation of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and remain in those billets today due to the competence they displayed during that crisis. The notable Democrats in charge during Katrina were Louisiana Governor Kathleen Babineaux Blanco (I’ve got friends in LA who tell me that she was nicknamed “the babbling baboon”) and New Orleans Mayor Ray (“chocolate city”) Nagin, both of who have since been replaced, although Nagin was succeeded by yet another Democrat (NO hasn’t elected a Republican as Mayor since 1870) but New Orleans residents are now protected by a proficient Republican Governor, so they should fare much better then they did under the lack of competence & leadership shown by both Babineaux-Blanco & Nagin.

    The moral of this story is obvious – if you want nice sounding platitudes, excessive spending on crippling but unnecessary social programs and total ineptitude displayed in any crisis, then elect a Democrat and put them in charge of your city, State or country but if you want real, proven leadership, fiscal discipline, obvious competence and the best possible outcome in the event of an unexpected disaster, then your preferred option is to have a Republican at the helm during times of trouble because they tend to be better prepared and willing to step up & take charge when they are desperately needed to.

    Oh, so it’s legitimate to apologize to BP for making them put $20 million in an escrow account to help the people who’s livlihoods have been destroyed by BP’s incompetence? Bullshit! It was THEIR fault this happened. It’s THEIR responsibility to clean in up and help the people in the Gulf region! NO APOLOGIES NECESSARY!!!! They need to “man up” and take care of this problem!

    • hybridtalk1 says:

      The apology was for the way the BP reps were treated. The “shakedown” that took place that had no constitutional foundation. The apology was for government leaders acting like dictators. I agree with him.

      IF Congress wanted to show impartiality (and you know they don’t) they would go after those responsible at Freddie Mac and Fannie May for their corruption and involvement in the housing bubble pop. The housing bubble has a greater effect on all of us, more than the BP oil spill, but Congress will never turn their attention to FM & FM because it shines a light on their own crimes.

      And I gave President Potty-mouth the benefit of the doubt during the first 52 days where he just seemed unconcerned or incompetent. But after his address to the serfs I can see he WANTED this long delay and WANTED the situation in the Gulf to get as bad as it could so he could POLITICISE it and try to sell his evil Cap and Trade program, that will raise our cost to energy, and turn over our homes to the government.

    Of course you agree with him. conservatives blindly follow other conservatives! Yada, yada, yada. We’re NOT talking about Fannie Mae. We’re talking about the Oil Spill. And besides, I believe that HE apologized for the apology!! I repeat, NO APOLOGIES NECESSARY! If ANYONE should be apologizing, it should be BP.
