Ed Koch On Cindy Sheehan
Many Americans, myself included, now see her as a person who has come to enjoy the celebratory status accorded to her by the radicals on the extreme left who see America as the outlaw of the world. These radicals are not content to be constructive critics. They are bent on destroying this country.After that Ed starts throwing the huge punches - quoting Cindy Sheehan in her various interviews.
Some of them want to turn America into a radical socialist state. Others hope to create a utopia. But regardless of their agendas, how can Cindy Sheehan's supporters defend her shameful statement, “This country is not worth dying for.”
According to Wikipedia, Sheehan wrote, “Casey was killed in the Global War of Terrorism waged on the world and its own citizens by the biggest terrorist outfit in the world: George and his destructive neo-con cabal.”Koch quotes Sheehan's Hardball interview:
MATTHEWS: All right. If your son had been killed in Afghanistan, would you have a different feeling?We don't. Koch wants people to speak out against the Sheehan agenda.
SHEEHAN: I don‘t think so, Chris, because I believe that Afghanistan is almost the same thing. We‘re fighting terrorism. Or terrorists, we‘re saying. But they‘re not contained in a country. This is an ideology and not an enemy. And we know that Iraq, Iraq had no terrorism. They were no threat to the United States of America.
Cindy, on the other hand....needs to go away. Yesterday.
Esther - me too. He's someone who has credibility and some common sense.
Cindy lost any credibility with me a while ago. She seems to be in the grip of delusions of grandeur. I find her eery and scary. Her politics are immoral in the extreme.
I agree with that. He seemed to see things pretty clearly.
