The Mother of 'Absolute Moral Authority' is back

Ethel C. Fenig
Cindy Sheehan, (remember her?) writing in the New Zealand Scoop , explains why she is taking her traveling circus anti war protest to Martha's Vineyard during the Obamas' scheduled vacation there. "We have the moral high ground."

Oh, you didn't know about her latest plans? Interesting isn't it, that the MSM, so interested in covering her antics during Bush's presidency, have ignored her since the Obama inauguration. Sheehan understands that.

Those were the halcyon days of the anti-war movement before the Democrats took over the government (off of the backs of the anti-war movement) and it became anathema to be against the wars and I became unpopular on all sides. I guess at that point, I could have gone with the flow and pretended to support the violence so I could remain popular, but I think I have to fiercely hold on to my core values whether I am "liked" or not.
Killing is wrong no matter if it is state-sanctioned murder or otherwise. Period. (snip)

something inside me gets a little sick when I hear people who claim to be peace activists supporting the Obama Administration's foreign policy, a policy that is not like Bush's in the fact that it's much worse.

I have been called a "racist" from the so-called left. In these people's opinion, I was totally justified in protesting Bush, but I am a racist for protesting the same policies under Obama.

So why is she now publicly protesting? (And where has she been until now?)

I am going to Martha's Vineyard because we have the moral high ground. The war supporters aren't going to protest Obama's wars. They are strangely silent over his foreign policy, unless they are praising it.

I am going to Martha's Vineyard because someone has to speak for the babies of Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan that do not deserve the horrible fate that has been handed to them by the US Military Industrial Complex. The voiceless need a voice, and even if I am called every name in the book by all sides, I will speak up for them. (snip)

Love the President or hate him, or anywhere in between, but we must speak out loudly and without any timidity against the institutional violence of the US Empire.

And because she lives in the United States, she has the freedom to protest and express her opinion. And she won't be called a mob.
