Creeps and Morons

What sort of person would take the time and energy to go protest against Cindy Sheehan? Who would feel anger towards a woman and her like-minded supporters, many of whom have lost their children to Bush's war, a war which they feel is unjustified and based on lies; people who want the killing to stop.
Well, this blowhard for one.

He's an oh-so-tough conservative talk show chump who chartered buses so his mentally challenged listeners (the marjority of them unemployed or just kids, evidently)
could ride a bus from Dallas/Ft. Worth just to harass Cindy Sheehan and her like-minded supporters who are staging a vigil along the road to Bush's stage prop "ranch" near Waco, TX. What did they sing on the way? "99 dead soldiers on the wall, 99 dead soldiers on the wall, take one down...."?

This jack-hole talk radio screamer is capitalizing on Cindy Sheehan's sincere grief for her young son slain in Iraq in order to grab some cheap publicity for his phony radio carreer, and is doing so by accusing SHEEHAN of staging her protest out of some warped craving for attention and publicity.

Yep, the guy should be horse-whipped and rolled in salt, but that would be too good for him.

These folks are brilliant, as are the Free Republic members who can be counted on to show up to protest anytime anyone protests Bush or his policies, much like a modern day equivilent of Hitler's Brownshirts, only dumber, as evidenced by this representitive member.

Their protests largely consist of standing around waving flags of various sizes, as if this somehow means something. Do they think it will drive the peace protesters nuts to see the flag, as if they're waving a cross in front of a vampire? Are they nuts? Do they not realize that the protestors love their country more than they do, as they're willing to do more than wave flags and buy foreign made ribbon magnets to slap on their cars in order to protest policies that they believe are harming our country?

But seriously, just what exactly are these people protesting? The fact that a woman who lost her son has the strength of character to actually do something visible and moving to make her point and plead her case? Are they protesting in FAVOR of war and death? Are they protesting because Cindy Sheehan wants the killing and slaughter to end and they think dead soldiers and innocent civilians are what makes America great?
Don't they think their sainted president can deal with a grieving and angry mom by himself without their help? I guess maybe since Bush refuses to take a few moments to meet with her, his mindless minions sense that he's under attack and felt the need to go protect him from a middle-aged woman.

What exactly motivates these creeps to want to go yell at and harass people who are only peacefully petitioning for an end to death and destruction and some accountability from the president who is responsible for sending these people to their deaths?

Of course someone could disagree with Sheehan's views or feel that withdrawing all of our troops would be unwise, that's an honest difference of opinion.

But even if you held that view, why in the world would you feel threatened by this woman? What would motivate you to want to somehow try to villianize and smear her as many right wingers are busily trying to do, usually dishonestly and by the use of the fact that some of her family members disagree with her as if that means she's somehow illegitimate. The fact that some members of her family (by marriage) disagree with her proves what? Yes, you're right. It proves that some of her relatives disagree with her, period, which proves exactly nothing at all and takes away from the legitimacy of Sheehan's protest not a wit.

Any idea why people feel the need to protest IN FAVOR of war, death and destruction?
Any idea why they feel theatened by this woman?

On this group of Repug's would do this. Look what druge just posted {as if it matters}:

TIME mag reports in new editions on Monday: Sheehan gets support from her surviving son, Andy, in principle, but he recently sent her a long e-mail imploring her, "to come home because you need to support us at home."

"Any idea why they feel theatened by this woman?" Obvioulsy they see the media attention to Sheehan as having an effect of discrediting the president and his policies. You are correct that there is no reason for anyone to feel threatened by this woman except for the president and his supporters and the fact that this one woman by the side of the road is threatening to the president is an indication of how untenable his position is.

Despicable is the only word I can think of! Who's the lazy ass talk show host? Mike Galahger? What does he get out of this? Sucking up to the Chimporer will get you no where.

Unless I'm mistaken, Franklin Roosevelt's 4 sons enlisted during WW II and at least 2 of them were decorated war heroes.

Poboy - well what is your point? Is it that Bush's kids are not enlisted? Well that's a valid point and calls a lot into question here about Bush and the Congress - who have few if any serving in their war.

Dope, Why are the right wing threatened by Cindy Sheehan? Because they know deep in their hearts she makes a lot of sense and has slapped a lot of folks out of the Bush induced hypnotic slumber they have been living in and has made some people spring into action instead of being passive about this war that must soon end.

They are beginning to see it's not just about the flag and the magnetic ribbons anymore - but it's about people being killed and sent home in boxes - for what? There is no definitive reason to point to. Bush's words are pretty hollow now.

Thank God someone has finally broken through the mainstream press!!!
Americans are slowly coming to their senses about Iraq.
But the supposed 'liberal press' is still with the president or appointee.
Kelly O'Donnell on Chris Matthews yesterday said that 'no one is considering cut and run' That's one of the phrases or terminology that was put into place long befor the 9-11 attacks that saved this appointed president!
Another is 'support our troops' a way to get buy in to this war from the non-voting tv watching American public. What's that mean anyway? Does it mean that you support a war with people that were not the 9-11 attackers.
And while were on the subject, what do we know about the 9-11 criminals?
All I know is that most of them were Saudi a few Egyptian I think.
The Bin Ladens are old friends of Daddy and Junoir Bush and the Cheneys. How come we don't know more about the Bin-Laden family?
And if Osama is so sick wouldn't it make more sense that he would be in Saudi Arabia?

Note the media bias.

If the media treated the Bushies the same as the Left they'd interview the demonstrators and not edit out the stupid stuff they say.

That would make for some awkwardness in upper-middle class GOP households.

It's obvious that Cindy Sheehan and what she represents is seen as a major threat to Chimpy McBush and his glorious little war.

I think it's obvious to anyone that if you compare Sheehan and her supporters with the counter-protestors, that Sheehan certainly has the moral high ground.

There's something inherantly twisted about people that feel the need to demonstrate against someone seeking peace.

Anon - you ask the good questions.

Chimpy has no real answers- just sound bytes.
