Cindy Sheehan

Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan spoke in Kalamazoo tonight. Wait, let me start over. To be accurate, that should say, Anti-America activist Cindy Sheehan spoke in Kalamazoo tonight. I don't have the specifics of what she said. If there was anything noteworthy, I'll post it later.

However, Sheehan's record is clear enough. Interested readers can find much more about Sheehan here. This information was compiled on David Horowitz's indispensable site Discover the Network, a guide to political left and a great repository of political information.

While there are certainly some patriotic Americans who oppose the war, much of the so-called anti-war movement is really an anti-American movement. They have simply latched onto a convenient means of attacking America. The war gives them a convenient platform for calling America a murdering racist imperialist nation that goes around bombing, murdering, raping, looting, and more. According to them, America is responsible for all the evil in the world.

Cindy Sheehan is an interesting case study. No quote better summarizes her real beliefs than this one: "America has been killing people on this continent since it was started. This country is not worth dying for." If that's not unpatriotic, what is?

Remember, the anti-war movement has made this woman one of its leaders. What does that say about them? You can see plenty more of Sheehan in her own words here.

UPDATE: Here is the Gazette article on her visit.
