As she continues her anti-war protest, Cindy Sheehan is labeling President Bush a “maniac” and a “lying bastard,” and she’s vowing not to pay her federal income tax.
She spoke at an ANSWER LA rally on March 19, and will be speaking on Sept. 24 at the ANSWER antiwar rally in D.C. She is anti-imperialist and supports the Palestinian cause.
Meanwhile, the right demonstrates their respect for Americans killed in Iraq.
The campsite has close to a thousand white crosses, each representing GIs who, like Sheehan’s son Casey, were killed in Iraq.
Monday night, a pickup truck tore through the rows of white crosses.
The right is also doing their best to savage and discredit her, with some of the nut-case right blogosphere being especially vile, which only demonstrates how effective she’s been.
Someone who has been to Crawford tells me there were 600 antiwar protestors there, and almost all of them were Texans.
