Is California Ready for Governor Cindy Sheehan?

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.

If you got up this morning wondering how California could get any worse… get ready for Governor Cindy Sheehan. Some may ask whether a woman who even managed to alienate the anti-war movement that swarmed around her is qualified to run for higher office. But I say why not?

California has lived through Governor Terminator and Governor Moonbeam, why not Governor Crazy?

Cindy Sheehan no longer has her old platform of George W. Bush, so it’s going to be a challenge to make herself relevant to California’s new welfare and union voters.

The newly proclaimed candidate is none other than Cindy Sheehan, who gained notoriety a few years ago as the angry mother of a soldier killed in Iraq.

Sheehan has always been a bizarre figure, and she’s obviously grown more radical as the years have passed. She openly described herself as a socialist, proclaimed her admiration for Hugo Chavez and described California Gov. Jerry Brown as an “a**hole.”

Even though she was appearing at a Green Party event, Sheehan said she felt the party doesn’t go far enough.

“I’m a socialist and I’m not going to be ashamed to say it!” she said. “One of my biggest inspirations is President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela. Yea, President Hugo.”

I think we should all welcome the inevitable secession of California, its rise as an independent banana republic and the inevitable border wars.

    Cindy Sheehan’s good friend Ron Paul will probably be here campaigning for her.

    A “Muslims for Paul” bumper sticker puts the Islamic crescent in Paul’s name.

    The ugly mishmash of hate groups backing Paul has a Sheehan connection as well. David Duke is a big Cindy Sheehan supporter eagerly proclaiming “Cindy Sheehan is right” after Sheehan said, “My son joined the Army to protect America, not Israel.”

    Stormfront.org members joined Sheehan at her protest campout in Crawford, TX and posed with her for photos. Sheehan is also intimately associated with the Lew Rockwell libertarian website which has posted over 200 articles by Ron Paul as well as some “scholarly” 9-11 conspiracy theories.

    The white supremacist American Nationalist Union also backed Sheehan’s Crawford protests and endorsed David Duke for president of the United States in 1988. Now they are backing Ron Paul-linking to numerous Pro-Paul articles posted on LewRockwell.com.

      She’s a complete dupe.

    • MultiKultIsDeath

      Are you seriously trying to discredit this nut by pointing out her associations to Paul and Duke?
      She’s nuttier by a mile than either of them on their worst day. The info you posted added to her credibility, or at least made me wonder what credibility I have missed so far in assuming she had none.

      • Erudite Mavin

        It sounds like you are looking for a way to back Cindy.

        Sheehan’s views run the line from Marxism, Radical Islam to Neo Nazi from her own comments and those she supports.

        For starters, Sheehan’s mentor Lynne Stewart is a Marxist and was the attorney for the blind sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman, responsible
        for the bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993.

    All socialists should be forced to live for 10 years in such hell holes as Cuba and North Korea. Only a few of them would continue to be leftist morons after having to suffer under Communism.

  • surfcitysocal

    As a conservative in this Democrat/union-controlled state, with relatives who salivate at the prospect of paying more taxes, I can assure you this state is indeed ripe for an avowed socialist as governor.

    • objectivefactsmatter

      Because they don’t even know what socialism is. They think socialism is forcing out the “greedy guys” from government.

        Hello, OFM. As I see it, in Russia and in China, socialism meant:
        1. Low production efficiency.
        2. Lots of entitled parasites having a free ride.
        3. Everything in short supply, except lies.
        4. Ideological compulsion. encouraged conformism.
        5. Self-righteous self-appointed minority making crazy errors at everyone’s expense.
        6. National isolation caused by delusion of external hostility.
        7. Relative stability until the system falls.
        Will it work out the same way in America?

        • gsteshen

          Wow, you have exactly described the current conditions in the United States, especially in the parts related to the government parasites, ideological compulsion, conformism and the self-appointed ruling minority.

          • hrwolfe

            you mean like here in PR ofKalifornia?

  • Phil McMorrow

    She and Nazi Polosi can celebrate her election by granting the right to vote in California to “undocumented”, otherwise known as illegal, alien.

  • SOMERSETBIG MIKE

    california and even new york state can elect any liberal looney they like, as long as they have a history of anarchy and anti-american speak and come off as pitiful ! mostly pitiful !

  • Joe Whitman

    Plan for White geNOcide that “anti-racists” implement:
    1) Flood EVERY & ONLY White countries with MILLIONS of non-Whites
    2) Force integrate these immigrants into White communities. This is done with the aid of Federal Laws
    3) Push interracial relationships night and day in the media & newspaper
    advertisements, in ONLY White countries
    4) Anyone that objects is called RACIST!
    5) Then, inform the Whites of their inevitable brown future
    Anti-Racist is a code for anti-White

    At least, Cindy sacrificed her son to enable the big business to take over the Iraqi oil. What did YOU sacrifice to make the rich richer ?

    “Ask not what the Wall Street can do for you, ask what you can do for the Wall Street.”

    • Gee

      My eldest daughter served in Sadr City for a year and got a roadside bomb for her trouble, her husband did two tours in Iraq and two in Afghanistan.

      I don’t like either side. She belongs in an institution

    • IronMaidenaregods

      Your post is false and Marxist.

      What did you do to give the state more power?

      Answer: You spouted Marxist fallacies.

  • gsteshen

    From Woody Allen’s movie:
    “Wow, what you have here is a fascist state, it is even worse than California…”

  • Sharps Rifle

    If she’s a valid candidate for any office anywhere, this nation is in worse shape than it seems. Imam Buraq Husayn al-Oblowme (mmmm mmmm mmmm) is a crypto (that means “on the down low,” for those of you in Santa Fe) Islamo-marxist and crypto-traitor. Sheehan is an open Marxist and traitor with pro-muslime sympathies (yep, she supports the paleolithic throwbacks who killed her son. Sweet woman, ain’t she? Sweet as ant poison!). Seeing as it’s California she’s running in, it should be no shock that she’s viable there (hey, Jerry Brown got elected again, and we all remember what a bang-up job he did in the 1970′s…nearly destroyed the state! Everyone deserves a second chance to do a better job…this time he IS destroying California!), what with all the illegals, dope-addicts, chardonnay socialists, and other assorted dregs of society living there! The sad thing is, that batch of hominid cancer migrates to other states (can you say “Montana, Colorado and my beloved New Mexico?”)…so the rest of us have to deal with the ooze from California.

    When can we turn LA, SF, Sacramento and Hollywood into live-fire nuclear test ranges and rid ourselves of the slime?
