Lunatic Sheehan: Get troops out of 'occupied New Orleans'
WND ^ | September 16, 2005

Mother of slain soldier decries 'military and governmental fascism'

Fresh from a visit to hurricane-ravaged Louisiana, anti-Bush activist Cindy Sheehan is demanding the U.S. military be removed from "occupied New Orleans."

In a dispatch on leftist filmmaker Michael Moore's website, Sheehan said she was troubled by the "level of the military presence" in the Gulf Coast state.

"George Bush needs to stop talking, admit the mistakes of his all around failed administration, pull our troops out of occupied New Orleans and Iraq, and excuse his self from power," she said. "The only way America will become more secure is if we have a new administration that cares about Americans even if they don't fall into the top two percent of the wealthiest.

The Vacaville, Calif., woman, whose son was killed fighting insurgents in Iraq, launched an anti-war movement last month when she camped outside Bush's Crawford, Texas, ranch and demanded to meet with the president, drawing national media attention.

In her Internet posting today, Sheehan said she had "imagined before that if the military had to be used in [continental U.S.] operations that they would be there to help the citizens: Clothe them, feed them, shelter them, and protect them. But what I saw was a city that is occupied."

Describing the scene, she wrote, "I saw soldiers walking around in patrols of 7 with their weapons slung on their backs. I wanted to ask one of them what it would take for one of them to shoot me. Sand bags were removed from private property to make machine gun nests."

The activist insisted there was no reason for the security presence, because "the vast majority of people who were looting in New Orleans were doing so to feed their families or to get resources to get their families out of there. If I had a store with an inventory of insured belongings, and a tragedy happened, I would fling my doors open and tell everyone to take what they need: it is only stuff."

She commented: "When our fellow citizens are told to 'shoot to kill' other fellow citizens because they want to stay alive, that is military and governmental fascism gone out of control."

Sheehan came under fire last month after WorldNetDaily broke the story that she had called enemy terrorists "freedom fighters."

"But now that we have decimated the country," she said, "the borders are open, freedom fighters from other countries are going in, and they [American troops] have created more terrorism by going to an Islamic country, devastating the country and killing innocent people in that country."

I wanted to ask one of them what it would take for one of them to shoot me.

The answer I would have to give, should she ask me, and I were armed, would be "NOT MUCH."

If there was no military presence, she'd be bitching about how the federal government "doesn't care."

One can only wonder what she'd say about a couple of police cars showing up in her neighborhood on a "domestic disturbance" call.

Kaslin, Thanks for the post. I hadn't seen her additional diatribe about soldiers in N.O. setting up machine gun nests. She has really gone over the psychological edge.

H'mmm, will her next demand be that all US military forces be withdrawn from the United States?

Not that any of this need to be replied to but... Insurance does NOT cover looting.

Blanco didn't want them in the first place. Pull them out and let the locals and Sindy handle it together. Hey, pull FEMA funding out of NO and the shelters while she's at it. Make the victims pay back the $2000 and don't negotiate with the insurance companies, and of course don't give any federal dollars to rebuild. Yep, that should make her happy.

If it wasn't for the military all the people would still be clinging to their roof. I am just waiting for her to team up with Jane and the Crisco bus.

I presume the "everything else" to which you refer is the fact that she's a stark raving mental case?

So, I assume this is Scrappleface...and am shocked to learn that it is real.

It has taught me something though—I have a lot more sympathy now for people who always have to ask "is it real, or is it satire?"

Stunning. Absolutely stunning.

Good, Good, Good! Glad to hear this.

The more lunatic she comes across as, the more credibility she and her backers on the left, especially the MSM are going to lose, and faster.

'military and governmental fascism'

This may be her belief, but it's not the belief of 95% of the rest of America.

They are so out of touch and the don't even realize it.

Godspeed

"excuse his self from power,"

Now there's an interesting bit of English usage. I love it when the left accuses our president of mangling the language and they do it "theirselves"

BTW, aren't her 15 minutes up yet?

Has Cindy the Moonbat stopped to see what she's done to the "peace movement" since her little circus in Crawford? It's in tatters, far from being "galvanized" as she claims.

She's so close to the edge her fellow moonbats will soon move away so she doesn't take them with her.

Considering that she has sworn to not pay taxes she apparently doesn't want to rebuild NO or have it fortified. She has no charity, no mercy, no humility and plays the persecuted card in a boasting fashion.

Hell is warming a special place for her if she doesn't start listening to reason from her family.

She should be in a padded federal prison cell for swearing to not pay taxes. Its where any of us would be. Maybe while there she could go on some serious meds.

Obviously doesn't understand that if insurance has to pay out large claims they have to make up the money somewhere; all of us end up paying in the long run.

She is a middle aged menopausal, uneducated, puppet of the left who managed to get the media's attention who has no idea what the *&^% she is saying. The only reason she's still around is because the media keeps giving her 15 more minutes. She is a moron.

from the Moore site:

"If I had a store with an inventory of insured belongings, and a tragedy happened, I would fling my doors open and tell everyone to take what they need"

And then file a claim, right Cindy?

My brother forwarded an email that asserted that Cindy had abandoned her son, Casey, and his father, got a divorce and went off to live a life of hippiedom. The story further asserted that Casey's father remarried and that Casey was raised by his father and stepmother. I don't have any idea if the story is true or not, but it would be wonderful if it was.
