Cindy Sheehan is the Bev Harris of the anti-war movement.
Edited on Wed Jan-03-07 06:14 PM by LoZoccolo
Attention-seeking stunts for $$$$.

If you cared for her grief, you'd encourage her to go to a doctor for some SSRIs and talk therapy, rather than egging her on.

5. What is your problem?
This woman has the right to say what she pleases about this war to whom she wants, as do any of us. This includes Democratic congressional folks, who will hear from this voter if they plan to wield a rubberstamp with a "D" on it where this war is concerned.

38. I just think the relationship between her and her supporters is unhealthy.
People pay her to do emotional and ineffective things as an activist, which garner enough sustanence to perform another, and on and on. I don't think it's good for her or the people paying her. I actually think she's being exploited more than her supporters - let's see any of these people cheerleading get arrested themselves.

Isn't that just what the Faux Snooze knuckleheads and Rush Limpballs were saying about her, too -- that the left-wing moonbats were taking advantage of her to promote their commie pinko peacenik agenda? Can't you give her credit for knowing her own mind and doing exactly what she means to do, even if you and Rahm Emanuel and the other human windsocks of the DLC don't approve?

or is the real issue her ever-so-rude interruption of Rahm "DLC" Emanuel's glory-hogging press conference? If they are serious about real lobbying reform, it will occur, with or without a press conference, and whether or not Cindy Sheehan inconveniently mentioned Iraq.

54. More like Ralph Nader
Once influential, widely respected even among those that didn't agree with him 100% of the time...

Then in order to feed his own ego he runs for President, helping elect George Bush, and those that respected him now consider him a Bush enabler...

He is now completely irrelevent to any important issue, and his efforts at consumer protection fall on deaf ears once willing to listen to what he had to say...

75. Not talking about opposition...
Talking about moderate to liberal Democrats who sympathized with her, believed she was doing a good job focusing the issue where it belonged, at the man living at 1600 Pennsylavnia who is soley responsible for instigating this war, and who may not have necessarily agreed with all her solutions, but listened to what she had to say.

Now she decides it is those very same people that she is going to attack...

She is now playing to her true believers. Any effectiveness she had is now at an end. She is now irrelevent as far as convincing anyone that her solutions are desirable. She appears to have turned herself into another "Nader" like publicity hound!

94. Good Lord, anyone who thinks Nader ran on "ego" isn't a Democrat
Nader felt, and rightly so, that he had to Run because the Democrats had become a corporate party and stopped representing the people they once did.

I mean, What the fuck?

Democrats are running on Free trade, shipping union jobs overseas.
Democrats to give Bush the ability to go to Iraq/
Democrats pander to the middle class, promising tax cuts for the middle class while promising to fix education and fix health care and be the party of fiscal sanity. I'm sorry. But I'm middle class, and I'm willing to RAISE MY TAXES to fix the things that Democrats used to care about.
Democrats cowered and ran when Clinton's health care plan was criticized.

So, excuse me, if I'm not going to join the course of "Democrats" who criticize Nader for running on the abandoned principles and platforms that were once the bedrock of the party.

His "not a dimes worth of difference" comment will go down in history as one of the most disingenuous political statements ever uttered.

After all, look at all the money rolling in as a result of it, as you so observantly point out. Gee, where have I seen that "cough" logic "cough" before?

71. She lost a son in this war. I can't see insulting her. I may not like what she does
but I'm not going to damn her for doing it.

She lost a child so from me she gets a pass.

89. I tried to say something along these lines awhile ago
Edited on Wed Jan-03-07 07:00 PM by newsdude
But with much more tact.
And not comparing her to someone who is despised.
I think she's gonna spend a lot of time getting blasted by people who were really quick to use her for their own political purposes not long ago.
And I knew, as much as the Republicans were tearing her down, it was going to be 100 times more painful when the Dems did it.

I'm opposed, in general, to the idea of trying to make one person "the face" of a movement. Especially when that one woman lost her son in a war and is probably not going to be able handle the intense spotlight.

112. Attention-seeking stunts for $$$$.
Ummm... I was under the impression that getting attention was what she set out to do, and that she has done a pretty good job of it. As for the $$$$, I think it's rather insulting to insinuate that's her primary motive. Plus you don't even offer any evidence or examples. Just an inflammatory assertion.

Do not post "flame bait" discussion topics. While there is no clear line regarding what constitutes flame bait, the moderators have the authority to shut down threads which they consider too rhetorically hot, too divisive, too extreme, or too inflammatory. Please use good judgment when starting threads; inflammatory rhetoric does not normally lead to productive discussion.

Do not start a new topic in order to continue a flame war from another discussion thread.

The administrators of Democratic Underground are working to provide a place where progressives can share ideas and debate in an atmosphere of mutual respect. Despite our best efforts, some of our members often stray from this ideal and cheapen the quality of discourse for everyone else. Unfortunately, it is simply impossible to write a comprehensive set of rules forbidding every type of antisocial behavior. The fact that the rules do not forbid a certain type of post does not automatically make an uncivil post appropriate, nor does it imply that the administrators approve of disrespectful behavior. Every member of this community has a responsibility to participate in a respectful manner, and to help foster an atmosphere of thoughtful discussion. In this regard, we strongly advise that our members exercise a little common decency, rather than trying to parse the message board rules to figure out what type of antisocial behavior is not forbidden.

best,
wakemeupwhenitsover
