CINDY SHEEHAN: DETRIMENT TO ANTI-WAR CAUSE

23

“People generally quarrel because they cannot argue.”–Gilbert K. Chesterton

As if this will help the cause…

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Cindy Sheehan, the military mother who made her son’s death in Iraq a rallying point for the anti-war movement, plans to tie herself to the White House fence to protest the milestone of 2,000 U.S. military deaths in Iraq.

“I’m going to go to Washington, D.C. and I’m going to give a speech at the White House, and after I do, I’m going to tie myself to the fence and refuse to leave until they agree to bring our troops home,” Sheehan said in a telephone interview last week as the milestone approached.


“And I’ll probably get arrested, and when I get out, I’ll go back and do the same thing,” she said.

In any effort to change people’s minds, you need their respect. It’s usually hard-earned because they have a much different stance or set of beliefs. This lady has done a disservice to the anti-war movement because she has not garnered any respect. She is viewed as a loon. A loon that has become the face of this cause. And by association has tarnished it.

Here’s a great view from Common Voice that sums it up very well.

    Everybody’s fans think they’re the best. Except for Philly, where they know they’re the worst.

    Wow! Don’t hold back. “Their players get all baked in our hotel rooms and die in their sleep. “–LOL!

    Well, you know where I stand on this as well, as I’ve been in the seat next to you for all your hilarious Cardinals bashing. And so over the last couple weeks I’ve had many occasion, when discussing the playoffs with people, to explain that I hate the Cardinals more than any team in any sport. Yes, more than the Packers.

    Not being a Sox fan, the single most enjoyable moment of this postseason–now that they won’t have the chance to beat the Cards theselves–will be the meltdown and loss of composure of the Delicate Genius and his squad when he got tossed along with his dissappearing center fielder, and then stupidly put the contact play on in Game 4 with 1st and 3rd no out, the tying run in the biggest game of the year on 3rd.

    Perhaps they’ll write a book about that one?

    Yeah it’s a bit over the top, but it’s meant to be humorous. And also mostly true.

    Awesome line about LaRussa.

    You pathetic, complete, world-class loser. We don’t think we’re great because we root for such a historic, tradition-rich team. We think we’re great because we don’t go up to other fans and mock them over the tragic, untimely death of someone they root for. Seriously, dude, you give Cub fans a bad name. And that is REALLY saying something. Enjoy the Sox in the Series. It’s as close as the Cubs will ever get. Can’t wait until 2008, when all of America can celebrate 100 years since the Cubs’ last world championship. 100 YEARS!!! Say it with me now — 100 YEARS!!!!!!!!!!!

    Do you think Julian Tavarez got the remainder of Kile’s weed?

  • <span class="anon-comment-author">Anonymous</span>

    You make me absolutely sick. A tastless Cubs fan who cant stand rooting for his team because of how bad they are and how bad their tradition is. I was disgruntled reading the blog, UNTIL i got to Darryl Kile. It then became more than just anger, it become hatred, you are a piece of shit for saying those comments, and I feel bad for you. Have fun rooting for the most pathetic team in baseball, while we enjoy rooting for one of the best teams of the history of america’s greatest pastime. I cant even type anymore, because of how completely tasteless and rude that was. Unbelievable, how one person can be so disrespectful to an organization, city, family, and person in one summary. YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS

  • <span class="anon-comment-author">Anonymous</span>

    You are a sick sick man to mock the death of Daryl Kile. You should be ashamed of yourself.

  • <span class="anon-comment-author">Anonymous</span>

    PLEASE…. PLEEEASE… come to st. louis. Please, if you do, let me know where you are and how I can find you. I’m not even kidding… I would love to take your face, and bash it through Wrigley Field’s wall. Actually, ur car window. Ya… PLEASE come to St. Louis.

    yes i am ridiculous. I am ridiculing the Cardinals and their fans and it’s mostly in fun so take a pill.

    Who is the loser? You tell me you “become hatred” over reading the post and I am a piece of sh__. Guess who else is ridiculous. And grow a set and leave your name scaredy cat. I left mine.

    Maybe Steve Kline got Kile’s weed.

    Why would I want to go to St. Louis? I’m already married and I have no cousins there anyway.

  • http://CUBSSUCKBALLS.com <a href="http://CUBSSUCKBALLS.com" rel="nofollow">ZONERHATER</a>

    If your a cubs fan dont act like you are a white sox fan. Chicago is a great city but dont make fun of st. louis. If anything you can make fun of houston. I would leave my name if I had a name, but im too lazy to register. All I am saying is, 1) dont diss on our city, 2) DONT EVER, EVER put down somebody who is dead, especially one that didnt do anything bad.

    You are pathetic along with all cubs fans, and its funny how you make fun of the cardinals for being a good team. THE CUBS SUCK, DEAL WITH IT DUDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/17608926989592946088 <a href="http://www.blogger.com/profile/17608926989592946088" rel="nofollow">The Zoner</a>

    Dude—like totally–to the most man. Reading is a skill. Work it, hone it. Kile had illegal drugs with him. He had a family. It’s more than stupid to be doing illegal drugs considering he had children and he was a role model and his family had a history of heart problems.

    I am a Cubs fan. I am a White Sox fan. Been going to both since the Cards had Bob Forsch toeing the bump. It will remain that way. So intolerant you Cards fans….=-)

  • <span class="anon-comment-author">Anonymous</span>

    your just upset becuase hwne was the last time you had somethign to be happy about!

  • <span class="anon-comment-author">Anonymous</span>

    Check your sources man. No drugs on Kile. He died of a heart attack. To mock him in death, even if he used, just shows that the well-earned reputation of Cubs fans as idiots is true, at least in your case.

    Can a team’s fans not show appreciation to their team for a great season? Oh, I forgot the Cubs haven’t had the chance in a long time, you must have forgotten too.

    Of course, the Cardinals choke in the playoffs, but when the Cubs lose to the Marlins in 2003, it’s all Bartman’s fault. They couldn’t possibly be beat by a better or hotter team?

  • <span class="anon-comment-author">Anonymous</span>

    Hey buddy, at least the Cards can make the playoffs, and they don’t blame their losses on goats and fans. That comment about Kile will no dobut land your sorry ass in hell. Besides over 80% of america smokes pot, and that was only drug found during the autopcy. (sp?)

  • <span class="anon-comment-author">Anonymous</span>

    Can I say something? The Cardinals are going on a very Cub like run of no championships themselves. This was St. Louis 23rd year without a championship.
    In that time: The Red Sox AND White Sox have both won a world series, which hasn’t been done since 1917 and 1918, respectively.
    Since that time, 7(Minnestota, Kansas City, Atlanta, Toronto, Florida, Anaheim, Arizona) teams have won the title for the first time. 2 were expansion teams with a combined 9 years of experience at the time. 3 of those teams that won it for the first time(Florida, Minnesota, and Toronto), have repeated. Since 1982, the Cardinals have made the World Series 3 times, and have lost to two first time winners(Minnesota, Kansas City), and a team that hadn’t won it in 86 years(Boston). The last time St. Louis made the world series, last season, they got swept. And it took everything they had just to beat Houston in ’04 in the NLCS.

    Also, Cardinal fans do not show any more class than any other team. Much less class in alot of areas, and the Cardinals are no more knowledgeable about the sport than any fan base. This “best fans in baseball” stuff is rubbish.

    The Cardinals are not destined to win, well not the series anyway. Lately, they have been destined to have good regular seasons and then just disappear once playoff time comes around.

    That is where Cardinals fans are worse than any other fans in baseball…YOU GUYS THINK YOU ARE BETTER THAN EVERYONE ELSE. Reality check bub, your not. And, obviously, the team aint either.

    Peace.

    Cubs in 06, Cubs in 06! Sure, they have as much of a chance as Santo in a butt kicking contest.

    (Trying not to laugh)

  • <span class="anon-comment-author">Anonymous</span>

    You can hate the cardinals and their fans, but the Kile comment is completely uncalled for.

    i respect the cubs, and know a lot of their fans who happen to be great people and your views don’t reflect the majority of the Cubs fans I have met.

    you should check your heart before you spew garbage

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/17608926989592946088 <a href="http://www.blogger.com/profile/17608926989592946088" rel="nofollow">The Zoner</a>

    “your views don’t reflect the majority of the Cubs fans I have met.” I never said they did.

    And whoever wrote for me to check my sources on Kile, it’s well documented he had weed with him and in him.

    Yes his death was tragic. But yes he was dumb for doing illegal drugs.

  • <span class="anon-comment-author">Anonymous</span>

    Thanks for proving you are a moron

    That kind sir, is an all too common occurrence.

    But really, doing illegal drugs is awesome. He should be praised. Tragic death does not nullify stupidity. Go bow down to McGwire too. Bring some kleenex for his weepy eyes. Mr. Fifth Amendment–what a big girly man. Well, not so big anymore.

    What’s that smell? Oh, it’s you, BURNING IN HELL. Do NOT speak ill of the dead.
