Sheehan On “Murder And Mayhem Moms”

Self-sainted Mother Sheehan spits in the face of other grieving Gold Star mothers who don’t accept her seditious pronouncements.

Cindy comes to us once again by way of Zsa Zsa Huffington’s preposterous hate-America-first blog:

Camp Casey, Day 20

I finally figured out George Bush’s NEW reason for staying in Iraq. This reason has also been co-opted by the Move America Forward and the poor mothers who would be honored if their sons were killed in George Bush’s war for greed and power.

Since the Freedom and Democracy thing is not going so well and the Iraqi parliament is having such a hard time writing their constitution, since violence is mounting against Iraqis and Americans and since his poll numbers are going down everyday, he had to come up with something.

I have continually asked George Bush to quit using Casey’s name and the names of the other Gold Star Families for Peace loved ones to justify his continued killing. He continues to say this: "We have to honor the sacrifices of the fallen by completing the mission." So the mission is now this: WE MUST CONTINUE KILLING AMERICANS BECAUSE AMERICANS HAVE ALREADY BEEN KILLED!!!

How can anyone, anyone in their right minds support this line of reasoning? I have been silent on the Gold Star Moms who still support this man and his war by saying that they deserve the right to their opinions because they are in as much pain as I am. I would challenge them, though, at this point to start thinking for themselves. Iraq DID NOT have WMD; Iraq WAS NOT linked to Al Qaeda and 9/11; Iraq WAS NOT a threat or danger to America.

How can these moms who still support George Bush and his insane war in Iraq want more innocent blood shed just because their sons or daughters have been killed?

I don’t understand it. I don’t understand how any mother could want another mother to feel the pain we feel. I am starting to lose a little compassion for them. I know they have been as brainwashed as the rest of America, but they know the pain and heartache and they should not wish it on another. However, I still feel their pain so acutely and pray for these "continue the murder and mayhem" moms to see the light.

Meanwhile, for the cameras:

Cindy Sheehan wipes her eyes in front of the crosses representing fallen U.S. soldiers at Camp Casey near President Bush’s ranch in Crawford, Texas, Friday, Aug. 26, 2005.

By the way, there is this information from the actual real-life Gold Star Mothers:

The Gold Star Pin, so intimately associated with Gold Star Mothers is, in fact, not awarded by us nor is it limited to mothers. It is awarded by the Defense Dept, usually through your casualty officer. The pin is awarded to the following relatives of the deceased:

Widow, Widower, Mother, Father, Stepmother/father, Mother/father through adoption, Foster mother/father in loco parentis , Son, Daughter, Stepson/daughter, Son/daughter by adoption, Brother, Sister, Half brother/sister.

American Gold Star Mothers

The motto of the real Gold Star Mothers is: "Perpetuating the principles for which they fought and died."
