PHOTO: "THE BITCH IN THE DITCH"
Yes, THIS is how the pro-Bush rally attendees address a Gold Star mother who has lost her child in a war. As Catrina mentioned on another post, send this picture around to your Republican acquaintances and your Uncle Eddie who "just likes Bush and would like to have a beer with him.

Not only did someone make and display this sign, but it is proudly displayed at another website. They embrace this. They are proud of it. CNN? MSNBC? Care to show what you call a "patriotic" rally really looks like?

18. there is going to backlash from crap like this...it's just sad that
they are attacking Cindy. But as long as they continue to go after one person they look really shallow. We have to realize that this fight is taking place in the media and people who have not made up their minds or contemplating changing their opinion are influenced my attacks against a grieving mom.

47. I thought the same thing
A day will come when his shame is extreme, and his cheeks will burn bright red when he sees that photo. I hope people shove it in his smug face, again and again, frankly.

Way to treat a Gold Star Mother, dickhead!!

103. Remember their big losses in 98'?
They lost congressional seats in the 1998 elections because of their "meanness" in the Clinton impeachment.

24. I don't know much about him
but when he wanted to murder Michael Moore, I got into a pissing contest with some righties.
I guess whatever Glenn says is just a joke. :rofl:
I'm not surprised to see his hatefulness on this sign. I suppose by virtue of his unending humor that we are supposed to take it as funny.
Sure clever- the rhyming of those two words like that.

84. Glenn Beck is making money getting people pumped up.
It's all about making money for Beck.

The index page of website is nothing but buy this, buy that CDs, T-shirts.

Beck should be ignored.

Amazing how far people will go for money!!

97. Thanks for the reply
I believe ignoring him is a good strategy. Seems like his righty sycophants are bad for America though. Mr. Funny is causing problems.
I don't know if Michael Moore ever struck back or was it all just written off?

4. What a Jerk
This reinforces my suspicion that all the freepers were bullies in school, & this is a whole political movement for bullies. No, make that *dumb* bullies, since so many of them can't spell.

Although the author of this sign seems to be able to spell. I think he got some help.

This sign could not possibly be any better.

Be sure to "thank" KLIF, that Glenn Beck punk, and all his sycophantic followers.

In fact, I hope every pro-war white supremacist nitwit on the planet shows up with a sign that good.

They have no argument. This is all they have. Empty name-calling, empty threats, empty heads.

We won.

They think that Spiderman is real, that intelligent design is a theory and Dubya is always right. Unfortunately they also believe that "Ignorance is Strength" and "War is Peace". Morans!

49. He's on AM radio
Here in Nashville he's on at 9am weekday mornings. The station I'm sure is Clear Channel. It has real balance. First Beck then Limpballs, then insHannity then insHannity repeats. No Air America here. I sure wish they would get here cause I can only listen to them streaming on puter.

39. What the HELL are you people complaining about?
Edited on Sat Aug-27-05 09:56 PM by Eloriel
I see DUers attack rightwing women with those words and worse damned near every single day.

YOU CAN'T HAVE IT BOTH WAYS. You can't call Coulter that name and worse, and then get all mock-outraged because they've called Cindy Sheehan the same thing.

That is PRECISELY one of the reasons (and not the most important one IMO) I and others fought for the disallowance of that sexist language at DU for so long, which the Admin finally heard:

http://www.democraticunderground.com/forums/rules_detailed.html
Bigotry and Broad-Brush Smears

snip

While specific words are not automatically forbidden, members should avoid using racist, sexist, homophobic, or otherwise bigoted terminology. This includes gender-specific terms such as "bitch," "cunt," "whore," "slut," or "pussy," and terms with homophobic derivation, such as "cocksucker," which are often inflammatory and inappropriate. One common exception is the use of the phrase "media whore," which is permitted.


So ya'll get all huffy because some rightwinger DARES call Sheehan, but it never, ever seems inappropriate to any of you when we STILL see it in threads here at DU.

The point is this: criticize ANY woman as long and hard as you want, but do it WITHOUT relying on things to do with her gender, her sex or sexuality, stereotypes about women, or other gender-specific criteria. Criticize her for what is making you mad, without relying on sexist slams and slurs.

45. Nor has anyone in this thread ever complained
about that language or other sexism being expressed here that I know of. And THAT is my point, which you seem to have missed.

However, now that we all know there is apparently some latent support for the issue, I'll be delighted to see them jump to the challenge with as much vigor as they're expressing now. Maybe THEN we can begin to see a serious erosion in sexism at DU. And what a welcome change that will be.

46. But Cindy herself has not used that language. Anne C has.
If you want me to back it up with examples I will go on the hunt. But it is not quite the same thing. We feel we can call Anne C those things because she is so foul-mouthed about others herself. Not to say that it is a good idea; personally I think we should restrain but I understand the need to vent.

57. Matters not a whit. And vent all you want on a NON-sexist basis.
That's all. Simple. Easy. All it takes is a little decorum, a little restraint, a little common sense, and letting go of one's sexism just a little bit.

Oh, and if I call myself a bitch, doesn't mean you get to. Or if a black person calls him or herself a N-word, doesn't mean you get to.

NOR is Coulter's own really awful behavior or fascist politics any excuse -- as I said, criticize her all you want in non-sexist terms. After all, the whole point of eliminating (or at least reducing) sexist language is that sexism hurts ALL women: you can't have a sexism that hurts only Ann Coulter and Michelle Malkin and Laura Bush. Sexism hurts all women. Just as you can't have racism that hurts just Clarence Thomas or Armstrong Jones. Racism hurts all members of that race of ethnicity. (And I'm NOT saying it would be "okay" for there to be a selective sexism or racism -- I'm merely trying to point out the opposite, that this type of bigotry hurts the entire group, not just the bad asses among them.)

62. I think we agree;
I just don't actually expect it to happen. There is too much a sense among many here that we have to retaliate in kind and that we should use any means necessary.
If you check you will not find me personally indulging in those slurs; but I can see how some ppl would. We do need reminders but I'm afraid it is a losing battle when it comes to such hate mongers as Anne C. We'll see.......

80. Interesting how we all agree it's inappropriate to use the "n" word.
But even you who are trying to justify the elimination of the word from being used here, don't have such hesitation in spelling it out yourself. Somebody pointed it out once long ago.

Just noticing. It is hard to break a bad habit and instill new good ones.

48. You're right. No woman should put up with being called a bitch.
No man should put up with being called a bastard (a slur on his mother). We really need to call Ann Coulter a troublemaker, a person who calls us names, who says we are slanderous and treasonous. She wrote books about it.

I understand why you hate this sexist language. I do too.

But that's wrong too. She really is a LIAR. That's the most insulting thing I can call anyone of any sex like her other than GOP grifter and that isn't sexist.

104. Ann Coulter Is A Man In A Dress. Attacking ...
AC is then multi-level sexist? I guess?

51. Of course we can call Coulter that and be outraged over this.
Coulter IS a bitch.

So are a number of people on both sides of the political spectrum.

But Cindy Sheehan isn't. And their rally purports to be pro troops or pro Bush - but they are revealed here for what they really are: smearing a grieving mother.

111. Now, now, don't compare the female canine to Coulter.
We all know how noble, loyal, and hard-working a good dog can be, which is CERTAINLY more than we can say for one Ann Coulter. Coulter is simply beneath contempt. She says stupid, cruel, untruthful, and vicious things, and it's all just for effect. In 30 years no one will have even heard of her, which is a mercy, but for now, we have to deal with the damage the Glenn Becks and Ann Coulters of the country are doing.

May their tribe NOT increase.

72. I object
to sexual terms being used in general, not just body part terms and cocksucker but fuck them or kiss my ass. It isn't that I think it is so rude, it's that those are all very fine things in the right circumstances and to use them as an insult is to make them bad. I can tell you little george and company are never going to kiss my ass not will I fuck them. Save it for someone you love.
I wouldn't say "fuck them" but I would say "cheney them"
Heck I don't even like using * for bush because * looks like a star and I like stars and I don't like bush.
I don't call names in general, just use not capitalizing their names to show my disrespect.

I understand your objection in general, we should not DO what we don't want done to us, a golden rule thing. Comparing using bitch on coulter and on Cindy is difficult for me though. Cindy might say things people disagree with regarding policy, but is not mean or "bitchy". coulter is. So it's not really the same.
For instance as my son grew up I'd sometimes get unduly irritated with him on my PMS days...and I'd catch myself in my tirade and break it by saying..."Sorry. Aren't you just a son of a bitch right now" and we'd laugh at my acknowledgment that I was being a bitch, because I was.

88. Ann Coulter isn't a Gold Star Mother, she is a hate monger.
YOU CAN'T HAVE IT BOTH WAYS. You can't call Coulter that name and worse, and then get all mock-outraged because they've called Cindy Sheehan the same thing.

95. Ah, how can you miss the difference? You see, Cindy IS a Gold Star
Mother, and Ann Coulter IS a media whore. A mother is a mother and a media whore is a media whore, and it isn't slanderous if it's the simple truth. Silly. Now do you get it? You can say whatever you want, so long as it is the truth. Thanks.

96. Get real: Coulter's a bitch. Cindy is not, so we're outraged. Get it now?
Whose side are you on? That is part of opposing a disgusting ass like Coulter. Call her that if it fits and do other things. When one of our own is attacked, we don't like it. The right even know she is a slimy bitch, they know Cindy isn't. Simple enough for ya?

Where is the "mock" here? Might presumptuous of you.

74. Another fine display of their moral values.
I'm sure there are children there.

Aren't these uppity people suppose to be religious, church going people?

So now they have proved they don't believe in 2 of the 10 commandments:
Thou shall not kill &
Love thy neighbor.

The next time there is a "fight" about the 10 commandments being displayed in a public place, the dems response should be "Why? You don't follow them anyway!"

77. How about "How murder in a family destroys a family" instead?
It's very hard for families to recover from intense grief. All kinds of intense grief, such and chronic illness of a child, death, etc, break families up. These people are heathens for wanting to rub salt in the wound.

So much for compassion.

His radio show sounds like a fucking train wreck. And there was once a time that he wasn't outwardly psychotic...his show was actually kinda fun back then.

Now it's just fucking noise and that stupid accent he does.

Remember when he was threatening for someone to kill Michael Moore? Well some of us wrote the sponosors of his show to inform them but most of them refused to pull their ads. Carabbas was one of them. That's why I won't eat at their establishment anymore.

93. The sign carrier was arrested
Ken Robinson, of Richardson, Texas, who described himself as a Vietnam veteran, was carrying a sign at a You Don't Speak for Me, Cindy! rally. The sign read, How to wreck your family in 30 days by b**** in the ditch' Cindy Sheehan. snip

Just get outta here! Robinson yelled, and aimed a kick at Taylor's midsection. Taylor called for security, and a young Woodway policeman quickly showed up.

I have the right to freedom of speech, Robinson said.

Robinson continued to protest loudly as police handcuffed him and led him away. snip

101. Welcome to DU!
That was a pretty good article, but they still seem to get the crowd numbers reversed. They say 3,000 pro war and about 1500 anti-war.
Good to see that the Freeper Chief tried to get rid of the sign, but the carrier needed to be hauled off.
