"I'm going home for awhile to try and be normal.Good idea- 2 years of being abnormal tends to take its toll.
She has aged quite a bit in the last 2 years, divorced her husband of almost 30 years, has been arrested more times than a rapper, gussied up next to anti-American asshat Hugo Chavez (and other pitiful media whores), and parroted the anti-war rhetoric to the letter. The only thing she didn't do was burn the Flag. But why burn it when you can wipe your ass with it?
In a speech that she actually said her son's name enough to be noticeable, she said,
I have endured a lot of smear and hatred since Casey was killed and especially since I became the so-called `Face' of the American anti-war movement... I guess no one paid attention to me when I said that the issue of peace and people dying for no reason is not a matter of 'right or left', but 'right and wrong.How sad that she still believes her son died in vain. How sad that a mother's love for her son turned into a psychosis, that taking on the Islamic threat is just as empty an endeavour as the void that is her soul.
She has put Camp Casey for sale. I imagine it will turn into a liberal monument after it has been bought by a group of hippies.
Good-bye America ... you are not the country that I love and I finally realized no matter how much I sacrifice, I can't make you be that country unless you want it. It's up to you now.Good riddance. I can only hope that waiting it out will make more anti-war protesters realize they just can't hang in the long run against people who love this country and want to see us secure some sort of a win in the Middle East. But her last statement is an eye-opener and very subtle- "I can't make you..."
No. No, you can't "make" us do anything that is against our better judgement or moral code.
