The Left is portraying Cindy Sheehan as simply a grieving mother who’s taking action because of the loss of her son. But what about this Cindy Sheehan:
“Our family was against it from the beginning. Casey was against it, but he felt it was his duty to go because he was in the Army. And he felt that he had to go to protect his buddies, to be there for his buddies, to be support, and they are brainwashed into thinking that even if they don’t agree with the mission, they’re brainwashed into just blindly following it. I begged Casey not to go. I told him I would take him to Canada. I told him I would run over him with a car, anything to get him not to go to that immoral war. And he said, ‘Mom, I wish I didn’t have to, but I have to go.’ ‘’
I know as a parent, there would never be an instance on this planet where I would tell my child that I would run them over with a car… FOR ANY REASON.
Kinda kills her whole “poor, little grieving mother” image if you think about it.
And if you look at the timeline, she was telling her son, before he deployed, that she was hellbent against the war. She called the war “immoral” long before Bush met with her the first time. This isn’t a case of her learning new facts after their first meeting, this is a case of leftwing lunacy now exploiting her son’s honorable memory to advance an agenda she had long before he died.
It’s just damn sad.
Update: It is interesting to note that despite Cindy Sheehan’s claim that her son was “duped” into joining the military and then whisked away by “Bush’s rush to war” that Casey Sheehan joined the military prior to the start of the Iraq war… then reenlisted after the war started.
