A woman who proclaims on videotape that she would like to go back in time and kill a baby announces two weeks later that she may receive the Nobel PEACE Prize. It may sound ridiculous to you and me, but to rabid Leftists it is perfectly logical. Liberals don't usually approve of killing, but if it's for a good cause, apparently it's OK.
Sounds ridiculous, doesn't it? A woman who proclaims on videotape that she would like to go back in time and kill a baby, announces two weeks later that she may receive the Nobel PEACE Prize. It may sound ridiculous to you and me, but to rabid Leftists it is perfectly logical. Liberals don't usually approve of killing, but if it's for a good cause, apparently it's OK.
Here's how it all happened. The poster girl for the Democrat's cut-and-run Iraq policy, Cindy Sheehan, told a touching story in a Long Island book store two weeks ago, which was caught on tape by a FOX News Channel crew. I was floored when I watched her speak.
Sheehan described a book she had read about a woman who traveled back in time to kill Hitler so that he could not later kill millions of Jews. She continued, "Then I thought, what if I could go back in time and kill George Bush when he was a baby?" She also said that she often fantasizes about murdering Bush.
Well, we've known for a long time that she has several screws loose. But I didn't know she had this much hate in her. She's positively bloodthirsty. Not only does she want Bush dead; she wishes she could have killed him when he was an infant!
Then a few days ago she announced that she was a finalist for the Nobel Peace Prize. The Nobel Institute would not confirm her claim, and with all the crazy statements she has made in the past, one could assume this was just another of her publicity stunts.
But what if it were true? The Nobel Institute has made some rather ridiculous awards in the past, but surely they would not give the Nobel Peace Prize to a crazy woman who has professed a desire to kill a baby, even a future Conservative baby. Or would they?
The bigger question is why the Democrats continue to support a woman who is so far out of touch with the great majority of Americans. One can only imagine the outcry from the Liberals if a Republican had announced a similar desire to murder Bill Clinton in his crib. Why has not one Democrat denounced Cindy Sheehan's words?
One might make the case that the Democrats haven't had to defend their "Peace Mom" because none of the mainstream Liberal media have reported the story. And in fact, the only channel where I saw it was the FOX News Channel.
But I think there is a deeper reason why the Dems have kept silent. They agree with her! Many of them probably secretly fantasize about killing our President; they just don't have the guts to say it out loud like Peaceful Cindy did.
They also like having her say things they wish they could say. Democrat leaders like Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid wish they could make traitorous statements like Sheehan has made, but they are afraid to go on record with them for fear of losing their next election.
In addition, the Democrats are just as out of touch with real Americans as Cindy is. They actually believe that she touches a chord with average citizens, so they honor her and support her even when she makes statements that undermine the morale of our servicemen and women.
The Democrats should do as I have done. They should look online at what average Americans are saying about their peace spokesman. If they did so, they wouldn't want to be closely identified with her so close to a crucial election. Here are some samples:
"This woman is mentally ill. She needs to retire from public life and get some help before she gets in real trouble."
"So is this morbid fantasy of hers supposed to prompt sympathy from the reader? You know, 'Oh, what pain she must be in to think such things.' I would have (did have) sympathy for Cindy Sheehan as I would any parent who has lost a son. But Cindy has turned this grieving 'peace mom' thing into a pretty sweet gig."
"If she's gone off the edge, then there comes a point at which she is not completely responsible for her actions and words, and those whose cause she serves would do her a big favor by acting as human beings and helping Cindy to quietly fade away. Fat chance of that, right?"
Fat chance, indeed. The only hope the Democrats have of controlling either house of Congress is to get Americans whipped up into an anti-war frenzy. And Cindy Sheehan is a key player in their "Hate America First" strategy.
I have been watching closely, and so far I have not been able to find anything that the Democrats are for in this election cycle. Oh, they have made their usual promises to repeal all of Bush's tax cuts. And they have reiterated their usual promises to make America more "inclusive" by making homosexual marriage the law of the land.
But basically the Democratic National Committee's whole campaign strategy has been to attack the war in Iraq. Not much of a platform, is it? Tell me what you are for, not what you are against! Tell me what you plan to do for the country, not what you think someone else should have done.
Remember that almost every Democrat voted to go to war in Iraq. All of the Democrat leaders made speeches about going after Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction, because that was popular at the time. Now that the polls are running in the other direction, so are they. They are trying to distance themselves from their own statements. But they can't hide from them, because they are all over the Internet.
Unfortunately, when Democrats claim they were against the war in Iraq from the start, reporters don't quote their own words to them, words which would show what liars they are. Why? Because 92% of the news media movers and shakers are registered to vote either as Democrats or as Socialists. If you've ever wondered why Conservatives are ridiculed while Liberals are fawned over by the press, there's your answer.
History has proven that nations get the government they deserve. If America allows the party of Cindy Sheehan to gain control of either house of Congress, we deserve what will follow. When taxes go back up, health care cost go even higher, when terrorists are given control of Iraq by the Democrats, we will have only ourselves to blame.
