Sheehan: “occupied New Orleans”

Posted by Richard on September 16, 2005

Cindy Sheehan, the moonbat mom who’s disgraced the memory of her late Marine son, has a new screed at The Huffington Post. It’s kind of hard to follow because it careens all over the place. For instance, here’s part of one paragraph (emphasis added):

… I was prepared to be shocked by what I saw in Louisiana, but I guess one can never really fully prepare for such devastation and tragedy. After living in a country your entire life it is so difficult to see such callous indifference on an immense scale. When I reflect on how the mother of the imbecile who is running our country said that the people who are in the Astrodome are happy to be there, it angers me beyond comparison. The people in LA who were displaced have nice, if modest homes that are perfectly fine. I wonder why the government made them leave at great expense and uproot families who have been living in their communities for generations.

See what I mean? One instant, there’s all this devastation, and the next, all the displaced people’s homes are fine and she wonders why they were forced to leave. Can you say "fruitcake"?

But here’s the money quote (emphasis added):

… George Bush needs to stop talking, admit the mistakes of his all around failed administration, pull our troops out of occupied New Orleans and Iraq, and excuse his self from power. The only way America will become more secure is if we have a new administration that cares about Americans even if they don’t fall into the top two percent of the wealthiest.

Occupied New Orleans. Occupied New Orleans.

OK, there’s a glimpse of how the left might have reacted if Bush had acted quickly, pushed aside the dithering Governor Blanco, and rushed in the 82nd Airborne. They would have screamed about an "army of occupation." Some would have compared the snipers shooting at relief personnel to "minutemen" and "freedom fighters." The Astrodome and other evacuation centers would have been described as "internment camps."

You see, to the left, it doesn’t really matter whether Bush sends in troops or doesn’t send in troops, whether the feds are slow or fast, whether people are evacuated or allowed to remain. Bush — and Rumsfeld, and Cheney, and Halliburton, … — they’re all eeeevilll. So whatever they do must have a malicious intent and must be opposed and denounced.

Occupied New Orleans. The mind of today’s left.

    I can’t imagine the grief from losing one’s child. I can imagine where you might go crazy. She does not have to be rational or consolable. It is truly unfortunate that some groups have manipulated her grief and given her voice the sound of lunacy.

    What Cindy Sheehan was originally about may have been the death of her son. However, Bush met with her not once, but twice. She in no longer about the death of her son… she is about Cindy Sheehan glorifying in the limelight of a grateful left-wing media who are all so anxious to use her to further their agenda. They have given her her five minutes of fame and she is wallowing in it. Thank you for your post on this matter. On my post I have actually been attempting to hold civilized, rational and thoughtful political conversation with liberals. I have had some success, but for the most part am going a little crazy myself!

    Keep up the good work.
