How The Right Wing Treats Cindy Sheehan
Howard Kaloogian, founder of the Republican front group Move America Forward, whipped the pro-war crowd into a frenzy yesterday by – what else? – assailing the patriotism of all who don't go along with George W. Bush.
"The terrorists that are watching Cindy Sheehan's protest believe that this is something that might topple the current administration." Kaloogian said. "And I have a question that I want the media to begin asking Cindy Sheehan: How many more American soldiers are going to die because you are giving hope and encouragement to our enemies?"
Fake patriots in action
And the signs were even worse. Reporters on the scene cite the following examples of signs displayed yesterday that show very specifically how conservatives and the Republican party treat a soldier's grieving mother. (Link is source of information.)
- "Cindy supports Osama"
- "Cindy Sheehan, the bitch in the ditch"
- "Cindy and Osama sitting in a tree"
- "Repent, you treasonous scum"
