Cindy Sheehan & Other On Hunger Strike

Tue Jul 04, 2006 2:29 pm

You can find the link here

Now if she stops eating until the troops come home does that mean that we've heard the last of her incessant babble? And if she's on hunger strike do you think she'll have enough energy to come up here to Canada and bother us?

Okay, even I have to laugh at this one. It's like a few weeks ago Saddam went on a hunger strike. It started right after breakfast and ended right before dinner the same day.

All we need to make this an even better event is a Walnut tree, a field full of illegals, and, of course, Daryl Hannah. Now that would be a complete protest.

Seriously. Daryl can be up in the tree watching the illegals plant their food, which of course the other half of the protesters can't eat because they are on a hunger strike. She also can supervise the logistics of "Relay Hunger Strike." One by one, as the celebrities pass in and out of the "Cindy Sheehan Hunger Strike for a Day Hotel," they can all weep as they walk by the tons of food rotting away because they can't eat it. Then they can blame Bush for the waste of food that has happened. They then not only can demand Bush cut and run from the war, they would demand that he has to pay all the illegals for their loss of crops. It all makes sense in the liberal-whacko world.

As a bleeding heart liberal, I still think she is an idiot. She's simply a publicity whore who is doinog nothing to promote the cause of peace, only promoting herself so she can reap financial rewards from her son's death. She's using her son's death to justify all this crap in the same way Bush is using 9-11 to justify all his crap. But it doesn't matter how you package it. The crap can be delivered by a sympathetic woman or a politically savvy and unsavory president, but it is still just one big ol' heaping pile of red, white, and blue crap.

If she wants to do this hunger strike, be serious about it: DON'T EAT! You want to make a statement? Then come up with a solution! Yeah, I agree we want to bring our soldiers home. But to do so now is unfortunately going to exacerbate the problems we have already created. So unless you can offer some suggestions, shut your poping pie hole. You have the right to say what you want, but we're tired of your bitching and your cause is wearing thin on us. Shut up.

I totally agree.

It has always struck me with curiousity that no one has ever posed the question to her, publicly. I would love to get her in front of a camera and ask her this:

"Mrs Sheehan, let me ask you this. Your son chose to serve in an "all volunteer" military. He made this choice of career, without a draft. He chose to serve his country, knowing the risk that he may be deployed for war, and possibly die in that war. My sympathy to you and your family for your loss. That being said, what do you think your son would think of your actions, keeping in mind, that he chose to go into the military?"

I know she is the darling of the media because she is being portrayed as a poor distraught mother, who lost her son. I think the media has made her as much a "media whore" as she has made herself.

I think her son would roll over in his grave if he knew what a spectacle his mother was making of his death. She is exibiting a total lack of respect for the service her son vountarily gave to his country and completely dishonors his memory.

She is a disgrace! She needs to just, go away!

Cindy Sheehan isn't the first mother of someone who volunteered to serve in the armed forces against her wishes. My mother - a dedicated lefty - was appalled when I announced I was entering the military. When Cindy first started her quest for martyrdom, my mom spoke admiringly of her to me. My response was "if I'd been killed in combat, I'd be forever pissed if you pulled a Cindy. And if Katie (my daughter who is on active duty) were to die in combat, and you are thinking about pulling a Cindy, don't."

I love my mom, but there are times she needs to STFU.

I don't think I'm the only person who has served in the military who feels that way.

Cindy is doing essentially the same thing. So maybe everyone needs to STFU and let her son rest in peace. He volunteered to serve knowing full well the consequences of that decision, and his mom is denigrating that decision.

Sure, she's entitled to speak out. but she's wearing his death like a badge of honor, while offering no evidence that he would have wanted her to do so. And unless I'm mistaken, several other family members have voiced the opinion that in their opinion, her son WOULDN'T have wanted mom to be on this crusade - at least on his behalf.

I believe I read that it would be a "rolling" hunger strike.

I don't understand that concept. Isn't that basically the same as fasting for a day or two, and then eating for a while, and then fasting, etc.? How is that supposed to impress us to support Sheehan's agenda of cut-and-run? I should think we would all be jealous that the participants will all seem so slim, fit, and trim in the end.

It would be different if she were offering an alternative to Jenny Craig, although in that case, I personally wouldn't recommend following the "Sheehan Diet".

It's obviously part of her grieving process. Unless anyone has lost a son or daughter I don't think they can remotely imagine what it is like, nor tell other people how to behave. It goes against all the laws of nature, having to bury the person you brought into the world.

The only thing I can compare it with is to an uncle and aunt of mine, who lost both their children before them. The first was killed in a motorbike accident when he was 18. The second committed suicide when he was 47. The first devastated them, and I'll never forget calling up to their house the following day and hear the mother howl with grief. Neither of them got over it, and when the second killed himself his father followed not long afterwards. Their mother is a broken woman, and, probably thankfully, she is now starting to suffer from Alzheimer's.

Losing a child is the most terrible thing that can happen to a parent, and it's not surprising some of them go over the edge.

It's gone beyond that, however. Grieving is one thing. Endorsing the conclusion that "Bush lied and people died", and misleading the public about her own meeting with the President -- that goes beyond mere grief, as I see it. (Contrary to what one might believe, Sheehan did at one point meet with the President; her protests at his Crawford ranch were to request a second meeting.) It's political agendizing, at best, and in my opinion, it's rather horrible to contemplate.

As you say, as you see it. But until you're in the same position you don't know what you would do. How many of us have take a stand on something we know nothing about, then change our mind when circumstances change. Most people, I would imagine.

Anger is part of the grieving process, and she's going through that now. It can last for years.

Your point is taken. Perhaps the core reasons for her statements and acts are indeed rooted in grief. Yet, I think I am hardly alone in saying that where such grief has public manifestations, it becomes more than that, and it is transformed into a force unto itself. Many people discount her rants as valueless for a number of reasons; tragic as is her loss, I believe that it nevertheless remains possible, and perhaps even meritorious, to validly dismiss them as the irrelevant product of irrational grieving writ large.

Your grandmother wasn't Cindy Sheehan! Circumstances differ and people react differently. I don't know how many children Cindy Sheehan had, was he her only son?

Everybody's different. I was sexually abused as a child and it didn't take a feather out of me. Enjoyed it actually. Some people can't cope with it and suffer depression in latter years.

We're all human and everyone reacts differently to situations. Telling someone to "get on with it" after a bereavement is an unbelieveably callous thing to do.

What else do these morons have to do. Sean Penn goes to Iraq to show the world that Saddam is great guy, that he cares about his people. And after he comes back, he says he was shocked when Saddam coerced his glowing statements of the then-Iraqi leader. Danny Glover is another one, along with Mother Sheehan, was stumping for Castro, and Hugo Chavez in pro-communist rallies. And Susan Sarandon, is an old hag just looking to put herself back in the limelight, now that her "young" husband is growing old. It must suck to be a senior citizen in Hollywood.

And anyway, she's quite entitled to speak out if she's upset by her son's death, no matter how it happened. It wasn't an accident

Braybuddy,

I agree 100% with you - she absolutely has this right and we must be careful to respect her and what she has gone through....

however....

IMHO she has gone way beyond "speaking out". From what I can remember (correct me if I am wrong) but she was not independently wealthy before her son was killed, and according to the Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cindy_Sheehan#Europe_and_South_America)
she has travelled all over the world and attended many protests in her grieving process....to me this transcends her right as a grieving mother and has become a profession.

Who is paying for all of the travel and hotel rooms that she stays in? Who arranges her schedule? Does she now have an agent? Valid questions...it seems to me that she has become part of the leftist political machine..And then, to really go over the top, her misguided meeting with Hugo Chavez in Venezuela has now connected her to a potential enemy of the US as well...


So as far as I am concerned,at this point she has transformed herself into a professional politician, with the same agenda as every other politician in the world - to stay in the spotlight and to keep the money flowing - shameful...

An interview with Sheehan is on MSNBC as I write. Sheehan said today on the program repeated just now that she would rather be ruled by Hugo Chavez than by President Bush.

Unbelievable.

What kind of irrational person would not qualify for an interview at MSNBC, I wonder? Sheehan is unable to discern the difference between a country ruled by Chavez and one by the President. She claims that Chavez was democratically elected eight times, implying that the President was not democratically elected. She is entitled to her opinion, but I have no desire or obligation to respect it, nor do I now respect her or what she has gone through. Losing someone under tragic circumstances does not give one the right to expect to be respected no matter how much of a ninny one may be.

Hey now. Bash Penn and Glover all you want (although I was impressed with Penn's efforts in LA after Katrina) but leave Susan alone. She might be getting up there in age (she's only 60, by the way) but she still has some serious sex appeal as evidenced by her reoccuring role in Rescue Me.
As for it sucking to be a senior citizen in Hollywood, I'll take actors like Gloria Stuart and Jack Nicholson over the likes of Lindsay Lohan and Kate Hudson any day.

She is in the same league as Michael Moore -- her clear hatred of the President or his policies seems to blind her completely to reason.

Agreed, I can at least respect the likes of Mrs Sarandon for getting arrested for impassioned causes than for getting arrested for fights with other actresses, drug offenses. As for Sean Penn, it looked more like a photo op for promotion, but I could be wrong. He may actually care about doing some good in the world. But stunts like this just makes him look kooky.

It's more of a case, that anti-war crowd hijacking this woman's emotions. Now, it's just an obvious infatuation with fame that she's appearing at Marxist festivals with Hugo Chavez, nothing to do with the loss of her son, Casey, who must be turning profusely in his grave

Any serious candidate will shun her in the risk of embarrasment

We're all human and everyone reacts differently to situations. Telling someone to "get on with it" after a bereavement is an unbelieveably callous thing to do.

Opinion noted . . .

That said: I don't give a hoot if she ever quits grieving for her son - in fact, it may be healthy for her to do so - I am however tired of her maw on the television every other week speweing the same old BS with the same crackpot "reverends", despotic leaders and nutjob actors . . .

If she wants to grieve, fine. Leave the REST of the damn world out of it.
