Awful Lot of Lies Out There Now

You know, I'm kind of ambivalent about this Cindy Sheehan thing, but one thing I am not ambivalent about is the disgusting tactics of the right. They are so desperate to discredit her these days that they'll cling to anything. I think this should show some of the ugliness that's inherent in the right: destroy anyone, at any cost, should they stand in our holy way.


I've said it before in my comments section, but I'll say it again: Yes, the person who physically killed Casey Sheehan is responsible for his death, and should wear that shame on their souls, whether they are still alive or not.

This idiocy of blaming people who oppose the war for kiling American soldiers has to stop, however. Who is the one who sent them there? I tell you us Anti-War folks were quite the opposite; they would be at home now if it were up to us. Even so, here's a clue for you chumps: Joe Insurgent cares nothing about what the American people are saying to each other or their President. Cindy Sheehan questioning the actions of a man who is, ultimately, her employee, will not help or break the resolve of our enemies. They believe they are right just as we believe we are right, and they will not be swayed.

If anyone can be responsible for this war from such a removed position, Bush is the one with blood on his hands who will ultimately have to answer to the creator who he supposedly believes in when his time comes.

Anyway, here's Cindy's post from her blog regarding some of these lies and the genius who ran over the memorials for fallen soldiers. Particularly interesting is the song some idiot sings, which just underlines my point. Fucking loons.

Putting out Fires

Day 10
The Peaceful Occupation of Iraq

The right wingers are really having a field day with me. It hurts me really badly, but I am willing to put up with the crap, if it ends the war a minute sooner than it would have. I would like to address some specific concerns that have been raised against me.

CindySheehan's diary :: ::
The first one is about my divorce. I addressed this on my blog the other night. My divorce was in the works way before I came out to Crawford. My husband filed the papers before this all started. It just recorded last Friday. My husband didn't know that it would become public record, and public knowledge. He had told his lawyer not to serve me with the paperwork or even bother me while I was at Camp Casey. He was trying to do the right thing. He didn't want me to find out. Enough about that.

Another "big deal" today was the lie that I had said that Casey died for Israel. I never said that, I never wrote that. I had supposedly said it in a letter that I wrote to Ted Koppel's producer in March. I wrote the letter because I was upset at the way Ted treated me when I appeared at a Nightline Town Hall meeting in January right after the inauguration. I felt that Ted had totally disrespected me. I wrote the letter to Ted Bettag and cc'd a copy to the person who gave me Ted's address. I believe he (the person who gave me the address) changed the email and sent it out to capitalize on my new found notoriety by promoting his own agenda. Enough about that.

I didn't blog about the cross incident last night. I was at the Peace House when there was a big commotion and people started saying that someone had run over our Arlington Crawford display. I know this is old news because I have seen great posts about it today. This is how I feel. The right wingers are emailing me and spewing filth about me on the radio and on the television saying that I am dishonoring my son's memory. This man who ran over the crosses thinks he is a better American than we are. He thinks we are more patriotic than we are. Does he really believe that he is honoring the memories of the fallen and his country by running down 500 crosses and about 60 American flags? The Iraq Veterans Against the War who were here were also very offended. Those crosses represented their buddies who didn't make it home. And they are so aware of the fact that one of those crosses could have their name on it.

Yesterday, we had a counter protestor who played his guitar across the way from us and sang (very terribly!!!) a song that loosely went like this:

Aiding and abetting the enemy.
How many ghosts did you make today?
Google me this, Google me that,
How many ghosts did you make today?

I find it so ironic that he was singing it to me, and not to George Bush. We named the song: The Ballad of George Bush. He came back out today, but blessed be to God, he didn't bring his guitar, and he didn't sing.

We are moving to a place that doesn't have much shade and I put out an appeal for tarps and a soldier from Ft. Hood brought some to us that he "borrowed" from Ft. Hood for us to use. I have had a lot of soldiers from Ft. Hood come out and tell me to keep it up and that I am doing a good thing. We are doing this to honor Casey and the other fallen heroes in their memories. But we are doing it FOR the people of Iraq and the other soldiers who are in harm's way right now. Right after we heard about the crosses last night, a Camp Casey volunteer found out that a pen pal she had in Iraq was KIA on August 12th. This has to stop, now. We will stop it.
