When Democrats Viciously Attacked Gold Star Mother Cindy Sheehan for Protesting Obama's Wars

Although there is no excuse for feuding with a Gold Star family like Trump is doing with Khizr Khan, Democrats might do well to remember the vicious treatment many in the party gave to Cindy Sheehan, whose son Casey was killed in Iraq, after Bush left office and Obama took charge. Maddeningly true to her principles, Sheehan kept right on protesting the wars. Suddenly the anti-wear hero became to some Democrats an "attention whore."
To many Democrats, wars are alright if a Democrat starts one or is running it, not so a Republican.
Sheehan wrote in a widely circulated article at the Democratic party website, before she was banned from posting:
I have endured a lot of smear and hatred since Casey was killed and especially since I became the so-called "Face" of the American anti-war movement. Especially since I renounced any tie I have remaining with the Democratic Party, I have been further trashed on such "liberal blogs" as the Democratic Underground. Being called an "attention whore" and being told "good riddance" are some of the more milder rebukes.
Unfazed, Sheehan's followers began to wear t-shirts emblazoned with "Attention Whore."



  1. Republicans? Democrats? Same criminal mob, two names.

    As they say follow the money. The mafia oligarchs have so much of our money that they can afford to bribe hacks from two so called political business syndicates to keep us from getting it back or stealing what remains.

    No mas! Basta!

    It us unfortunate that the Khans appear to be more perturbed by Chump's bigoted and reprehensible (and it is reprehensible) anti Muslim and anti immigrant babblings than by the big lies of the war racket.

    The war racket killed their kid, as well as many others. Maybe they may want to speak out against it, as well.

    Shut down the CIA and the NSA. Give DOD a well deserved buzz cut. End NATO and close down every overseas Murder Inc. military facility and every CIA "black site" on the planet

    In the words of old gimlet eye, Smedley Darlington Butler:
    "To Hell With War!"

  2. "Republicans? Democrats? Same criminal mob, two names."

    Along with the disgusting lap dogs here in Australia.
