Does she have like a real job or anything? Does being an attention whore pay very well?

OTOH, the vet gave Code Pink just what they wanted; media attention. They're like the Westboro Baptist a-holes. Stand back with a cold drink and watch them marinate themselves in their own foolishness.

StokeyBob: "The military veteran told reporters that he was upset with the anti-war protesters' effect on troop morale. "They ruin the troops. They get to the troops. They did the same thing in Vietnam," he said."

With just cause.

Or it wouldn't get to them, would it?


I honestly can't believe you just said that.

Have we actually forgotten the baby killer mantra from the left during those years, which was directed against many DRAFTED or coerced young men, who fought under Democrat Presidents?

Really???

rustybender: I love how protesters forget that the same right of free speech that allows them to protest also applies to people who disagree with them.

Freedom speech and expression doesn't allow assault which is what the idiot in uniform did. If the idiot in uniform wanted to counter protest, he should have done so in a non-confrontational adult way. All he managed to do is show that he's a dick and give Sheehan way more attention than she would have gained if she and her group was left alone.

Sheehan should have just stuck with the assault suit and been done with it.

FTA : "They ruin the troops. They get to the troops. They did the same thing in Vietnam," he said.

Interesting to see that old Dolchstoßlegende is still alive and well in the U.S. military.

Personally, I don't worry about Cindy Sheehan and don't get upset with her. She can protest as loud as she wants, wherever she can legally protest at. She lost her son in Iraq so I can understand where she's coming from. Besides, freedom of speech goes for all Americans.

Those are fine points, but it sure looks like she whacks him with that megaphone. Her rights don't include him having to take that part.


Jakevol2

well I am sure that is what the rapist Marines do.

Yeah, that's a useful comment.

I did provide evidence to back it up though.


Sad as it is, your provided evidence does not include all Marines. Not me or anyone I served with, though I was in Okinawa when an soldier in the Army was convicted of rape.

Then she started targetting the Democrats, so they kicked her off the plantation.

Norad: If you have a decent megaphone and an intestine full of gas, flatulence can be heard almost a quarter of a mile away.

What a waste of time. How would anyone tell the sound apart from downshifting 18-wheelers?

Two words: Conduct Unbecoming.

Ms. Sheehan needs to see a doctor.
 
2009-11-28 11:34:29 PM  
That video was too long adn boring for me to find the important bits.

Did anyone touch her first before she made things physical?

If so, they are idiots and in the wrong.

Still, if even half of what I hear about code pink is true, they are just another group that managed to take a decent message ( don't drive drunk, don't be cruel to animals, make love not war, and the list goes on) and shiat all over it. So she is probably an idiot either way then. Too bad about her son though.

snidepiper: She's willing to stick with this for as long as it takes.

Even if she has to make a lucrative career out of it like John Walsh did with his son's death,

she's willing to stick with it.


She's no John Walsh. She just needs to get off camera, stay off camera, and get herself a support system that's interested in things other than using the broken remnants of her 15 minutes for their own gain.

perhaps not all Marines rape, I am sure the majority do not rape, they just have better impulse control.

I can't jump on the bandwagon here. I don't think she was doing anything out of line. We all have the right to protest in this country. Where does this sputtering old fool get off shoving a bunch of women around? And guess what? He wouldn't have had a megaphone in his face if he hadn't needed to get all face-to-face tough with middle-aged mom. What a bad-ass.

IStateTheObvious: Befuddled: The man in uniform was the one who was getting into the face of Cindy Sheehan. He committed battery against her.


No. He stood in front of her and exercised his freedom of speech, just as she was doing. Sheehan put the megaphone in his face. When that megaphone made contact with his face, it is Sheehan who committed battery.


you lived up to your handle, but you're right!

sorry - if anyone stuffs a megaphone in my face and starts talking, I will beat their ass. Mainly because I value my hearing.

What do you think would happen if I stuffed a megaphone in HER face and started yelling? How soon before I would be served with an assault arrest?

I dont think we should be over there either, I'm not anti-war at all, I just dont think we should police the world. That being said, if someone messes with us, I think we should F them up hard and fast.

This crazy biatch needs to be put on ice - you lost a son, I'd have sympathy for you if you were doing something productive to end the war, not bashing local troops already under enough stress.

Someone please kidnap her and take her hearing away from her to teach her a lesson.

Swampthing in Korea:
It's hypocritical considering the Left had already hitched their wagon to her for a long time, and then ditched her once she start going after Pelosi.


So assuming that "the left" is too stupid and communist to have figured out that she was an attention whore at first or assuming that "the left" hates America and Jesus and is just pretending not to like her to win elections, what would the appropriate response have been?

Sheehan was the first person to make contact with the other person, using her megaphone.

She was for a couple weeks several years ago.

This is a key advantage that Democrats have over Republicans: Democrats are able to cut ties with their fringe. Republicans have allowed their equivalent to hijack the entire party.

Funny, what I saw is Sheehan shove the megaphone into the guy's face and he justifiably slapped it away. Sheehan was the instigator not the vet.

Freedom of Speech also doesn't include her making contact with him. I'm not saying she caused serious harm, but she had no right to do that and whether or not his response lack proper discipline doesn't change from her idiotic move to provoke him.

Weaver95: Leeds: Sheehan was protesting against our drones? She evidently prefers us sending actual pilots over these Muslim terrorist hot spots? Aren't the drones literally, and measurably saving the lives of our troops?

I don't think even Cindy knows just what it is she's protesting against anymore.


First thing I wondered is the main reason why she is protesting is that her son died in combat...

The UAVs limits the very thing that caused her to protest in the first place!

Oh...oh, dude. Really?

Yes, really. The military is supposed to teach respect and courtesy to women. It did when I was in. It does not matter what she was doing that veteran had no business to threaten her, let alone put his hands on her.

No. We kill people and break their stuff. What part are you confused about?

well I am sure that is what the rapist Marines do.

Theres 2,680,000 hits on google about blacks who rape....maybe we can make one of those graphs with the circles to see where they intersect.

Her son died before his time. Yes that sucks, and it's painful, but it takes a special kind of crazy to be Cindy.
