Yesterday Cindy Sheehan announced that she is quitting the (so-called) peace movement and moving back to California to “try and be normal.”
In her resignation, she said:
“…you are not the country that I love and I finally realized no matter how much I sacrifice, I canâ€™t make you be that country unless you want it.”
So what kind of country does she love? Well, in one interview she said she would rather live in a country like Venezuela under Hugo Chavez. That’s right. The same Hugo Chavez who yesterday shut down the only nationally broadcast television station that was critical of his administration. That’s correct. Cindy Sheehan supports a communist dictator who opposes freedom of speech.
Notice that Sheehan is freely using her rights of free speech in the U.S. to condemn President Bush as a terrorist and murder while the people in Venezuela (where she would rather live) do not have those same rights. Sheehan lives in Bizzaro world.
Ms. Sheehan, you said we can’t be that country unless we want it. Watch what is happening in Venezuela. I can assure you we don’t want it.
