Sacramento’s Out Of Iraq Forum
Sacramento’s Out Of Iraq Forum sounds like it was a rollicking good time for anti-war lefties. Just look at some of what happened there last week-end…
“…anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan, author David Dionisi, 4th Congressional District candidate Charles Brown, and surprise guests–academy-award winning Sean Penn and author Norm Solomon spoke to a packed SEIU hall in Sacramento, California. With nearly 200 people inside and a large overflow crowd gathered out on the sidewalk…
Wait, they had a Congressman, Cindy Sheehan, and Sean Penn all there and it only drew 200 people plus some people standing around outside? That’s kind of pitiful when you think about it, isn’t it? Know what’s even sadder? That they actually booked a place that would only hold 200 people because they must have known they couldn’t draw flies. Did I mention the word, “pitiful,” yet?
Dave Dionisi, author of American Hiroshima and former U.S. military intelligence officer, provided insight on pre-9-11 intelligence. This information should have been utilized to prevent the attacks on the World Trade Center.
These lefties look back at 9/11 and claim we should have connected the dots. Now, post 9-11, they relentlessly fight almost everything the Bush administration does to make it harder for terrorist groups to attack us. Maybe they’d just rather yell, “Why didn’t you connect the dots,” at a Republican President than actually have him do it, save American lives, and get credit for it.
…Welcomed with a standing ovation, Cindy Sheehan and co-founder of Gold Star Families for Peace gave a rousing talk. She stressed the need to impeach this administration as war criminals who continue to lie to the American public about pre-war Iraq intelligence. She also contends that Pres. Bush’s assertions about pulling the U.S. troops out of Iraq would lead to chaos are a part of a calculated strategy to mislead the American public. Cindy reminded the audience that we all need to take responsibility for Iraq—as we elected the officials who ultimately allowed the invasion and occupation. We have the power to remove them from office. Cindy emphasized we must exit Iraq now to save precious lives.
Yada, yada, yada. New day, same old nonsense.
After expressing her support for a Dept. of Peace, Cindy concluded that she’d like to create a U.S. Dept. of History, with herself as the first secretary.
A Cindy Sheehan led Department of History? Can you imagine a history curriculum designed by Cindy Sheehan being sent to kids? I bet it would go something like this:
“Ok children, we’ve just concluded the sixties where the Bush family evil empire had Kennedy assassinated. Then there was the Nixon impeachment in the seventies and war criminal Ronald Reagan getting into office in the eighties. He picked a fight with the greatest country in the world, the peaceful and prosperous Soviet Union. Unfortunately, Gorbachev decided to disband that model for humanity rather than risk Ronald Reagan destroying the world in an attempt to break them up. Now tomorrow, we’ll be covering the illegal wars of the Bush administration and explaining why George, Sr. should have been impeached and George, Jr. should have been sent to Abu Ghraib and forced to walk around on his hands and knees at the end of a leash held by Lyndie England.”
Actor Sean Penn added to the enthusiasm of the day by stressing that all of the nation’s anti-war activism was taking hold and was starting to work—while admitting that the stress of living under the current administration was making it tough for him to quit smoking.
So Penn blames Bush because he’s having trouble quitting smoking? What’s next? Will Michael Moore accuse Bush of fouling up his diet? Maybe Danny Glover will claim Bush kept him from taking out the garbage? They really do blame Bush for everything.
Maybe they could just make a big sign — no, better yet — a huge display featuring giant puppet heads that says, “It’s all Bush’s fault,” and save themselves the trouble of getting together for a conference. It’s just an idea….
