sheehan scolds the appeaser pelosi

“You don’t have money to fund the war or children. But you’re going to spend it to blow up innocent people if we can get enough kids to grow old enough for you to send to Iraq to get their heads blown off for the president’s amusement.” Pete Stark (D-Ca)

Anti-war activist and Gold Star mother Cindy Sheehan recently admonished the embarassment which is House speaker Nancy Pelosi for her remarks aimed at distancing herself from the bold and honest statements from California congressman Pete Stark. 

 

Pelosi is intent on continuing the Democratic party’s traditional role as feeble enablers of a rabidly fascist Bush regime, reserving her most ardent criticisms and protestations for her fellow Democrats while kneeling in utter submission to the right-wing  Congressional contingent.  It’s refreshing to see citizen activists speak out and challenge the inaction of their elected leaders, and I wholeheartedly welcome Cindy’s bid to unseat the shameful Pelosi from her comfortable perch in the House speaker seat.  It was also refreshing to finally hear a Democrat go off on the Bush regime the way Stark did (who, by the way, is the only member of Congress on record who is openly atheist).sheehan

After Pelosi failed to defend her Democratic comrade from the expected attacks from the Republicans, Stark was forced to grovel and apologize on the floor of the House in order to further reinforce the submissiveness nature of the weak Democratic leadership.
