Audio: Sheehan hangs up on Klein over terrorism debate

posted at 7:00 pm on July 11, 2010 by Ed Morrissey

How about a little blast from the past, courtesy of Aaron Klein of WABC Radio? Aaron invited Cindy Sheehan onto his Sunday afternoon show, broadcast live from 2-4ET, to discuss an upcoming trial and her perspective on Barack Obama and his war policies. Sheehan tells Aaron that she doesn’t feel betrayed by Obama because she never trusted him in the first place, and that she believes him to be a corporatist instead of a liberal, calling ObamaCare a big boon to insurance companies. Sheehan gets testy (although never rude) when Aaron presses her on the issue of terrorism, suddenly claiming that the only topic under discussion was supposed to be her trial. When Aaron starts reading his e-mail invitation on the air to clarify, Sheehan abruptly hangs up on him:

It’s kind of a shame that she bailed, because it was at least somewhat interesting until then. Aaron was polite and the questions certainly weren’t outside the realm of debate, especially given Sheehan’s years of extreme rhetoric in the anti-war movement.

Aaron is also the author of The Manchurian President, which outlines Obama’s ties to radicals.

I heard this as happened. It is amazing how Cindy has never been confronted with this obvious question before.

RobCon on July 11, 2010 at 7:07 PM

..one wonders why she isn’t up in Maine protesting The Pantload’s propagation of this war.

The War Planner on July 11, 2010 at 7:12 PM

I give Sheehan this: She’s not a political hack. She still opposes the war and makes it known despite a far-leftist being in control.

Unlike the media and other left-wing sources who have evidently forgotten how to report anything bad about the war all of a sudden.

amerpundit on July 11, 2010 at 7:14 PM

Cindy Sheehan, poster child of the thoughtful, intellectual left.

Bwahahahaaaa!

The sad part is she danced on her son’s grave to get to her stardom. How horrible is that?

petefrt on July 11, 2010 at 7:15 PM

Hasn’t she been flushed from the public’s view yet? She clearly has overstayed her usefulness as a useful idiot.

Her son is a hero, she’s a disgusting media sweat-hog. Enough.

But she’s still a deranged leftist libtard. She just happens to be consistent in her stupidity.

Conservative Samizdat on July 11, 2010 at 7:18 PM

She has been outside the White House all week? Sadly now that protesting the President is out of vogue, Cindy’s friends in the media have no use for her anymore.
The one guy who bothers to interview a has-been like her, she hangs up on.

RobCon on July 11, 2010 at 7:18 PM

Wow… Cindy and I might be in agreement. I tend to also believe that Obama is a corporatist … an incompetent one, but still he’ll play ball with those that bend to him.

MeatHeadinCA on July 11, 2010 at 7:18 PM

Someone should also remind Sheehan that George W was the best thing that could have happened to her. Under the current regime, the press doesn’t feel as “interested” in Cindy.

MeatHeadinCA on July 11, 2010 at 7:19 PM

amerpundit on July 11, 2010 at 7:14 PM

You may have a point. On the other hand, this is what she does. What else does she have left??

It’s kinda like saying Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton really want racism to end.

Is she? Seems she’s slightly more sane than most Obama zombies.

Sheehan tells Aaron that she doesn’t feel betrayed by Obama because she never trusted him in the first place, and that she believes him to be a corporatist instead of a liberal, calling ObamaCare a big boon to insurance companies.

Or that they really wanted a black (half-black?) man to be elected President…

Sheehan and Westboro Baptist are the left.

“hope-notized.” Funny.

And in other news- Spain wins the cup 1-0 in OT. Wow who would have though 1-0 in OT ?/ Soccer sucks.

MeatHeadinCA on July 11, 2010 at 7:18 PM

I know I was thinking the same thing, I agree with Cindy Sheehan, he is corporatist. This phenom has to involve worm holes and quantum physics you know a parallel universe where your mirror opposite exist…..Well in my case it would be Dr Good but in Cindy’s Universe we aren’t dealing with the Good Spock. or are we…..

Dr Evil on July 11, 2010 at 7:50 PM

ButterflyDragon on July 11, 2010 at 7:43 PM

And that’s not as easy as it looks for a cartoon character to accomplish.

Dr Evil on July 11, 2010 at 7:53 PM

A Parallel Universe, with a trapped Good Spock, would explain the unexplainable recent NASA directive. Bad Spock is diabolical…..I mean he isn’t me but he’s workin the devil goatee.

Dr Evil on July 11, 2010 at 7:58 PM

Poor Saint Cindy. Used and abused by the left. No one to turn to in her hour of need. Maybe she’d feel more at home down in Venezuela.

GarandFan on July 11, 2010 at 8:00 PM

She’s going to analyze those videos and statements from the Wahhabist terrorists so she can speak on that subject.

Now that’s some funny sh*t right there.

lowandslow on July 11, 2010 at 8:01 PM

Obama

Evil Spock

Sheehan hangs up on Klein over terrorism debate

Analyze videos, someone should send her this video.

Dr Evil on July 11, 2010 at 8:07 PM

Nothing like America’s enemies quoting your own words to liven up an interview…

Oh, wait!

Seven Percent Solution on July 11, 2010 at 8:07 PM

So lemme get this straight.
Sheehan has been protesting the ‘war on terrorism’ for the last few years.
She is against killing of terrorists.
She gangs up with Chavez , against USA
……but the moment she is shown the real face of her BFFs and allies in the terrorist world, she hangs up ??
Is it because she knows its OK to be chummy with Hamas/Hizbollah but to not to publically praise and defend muslim terrorists ?
Atleast not yet ?

macncheez on July 11, 2010 at 8:10 PM

Is that woman still around, geez, nearly forgot about her.

Why does she still live here, exactly?

Plenty of countries she’d be less miserable in perhaps.

NoDonkey on July 11, 2010 at 8:16 PM

Did she have all the ugly views before her son died. One wonders if she was such a moonbat how is it that her son joined the army in the first place. Did he join to get away from her moonbattiness. Was she turned by the fame she got after and meet the people that caused her to have the all in out communistic views.

A sickness carried in the heart cannot be cured by moving the body.

Merovign on July 11, 2010 at 8:22 PM

This woman’s picture is in the dictionary next to “dingbat”.

Really Right on July 11, 2010 at 8:22 PM

You have to be really hard up for guests to invite Sheehan on.

pgrossjr on July 11, 2010 at 8:27 PM

macncheez on July 11, 2010 at 8:10 PM

It’s possible that she has chosen sides Shites over Sunnis.

Chavez has aligned himself with Iran – Iranians are Shites.

Hizzbollah and Hamas are Iranian proxies.

Al Qeada is made up of Sunni Muslims.

It’s an old conflict Sunni vs Shia it’s why Saudi Arabia will let Israel use their air space if they use an air raid against Iran. The Saudis don’t want a nuclear armed Iran.

Saddam was the Sunni Strongman in the neighborhood – 9/11 we were attacked by predominantly Saudis they made up the majority of terrorist on the planes – Al Qeada, Sunni brand.

George W Bush changed the balance of power in the middle east, by us removing Saddam – Sunni. Now the Saudis are more concerned with Iranian dominance in the region than they are the existence of Israel.

I doubt Sheehan has a clue as to how she should speak about “terrorist” no one has directed her on the talking points.

Dr Evil on July 11, 2010 at 8:27 PM

Cindy isn’t going to risk saying something that might lower Muslim self esteem. Come on, get with the NASA program everyone!

Did you know that George Washingtons wooden dentures were carved by a gifted Muslim scholar and whittler from sandal wood?.

BL@KBIRD on July 11, 2010 at 8:41 PM

Whatevs. I somewhat respect Cindy even if I don’t usually agree with her. She’s one of the only libs who is principled and consistent, and not a hack.

Dr Evil on July 11, 2010 at 8:27 PM

Lets take it a step furthur.
Look at the shia ( Iranian regime, hamas, hizbollah,
al-fatah, syrian government) supporters :
Ayers, Dohrn, Khalidi,Code Pink, McKinny, Sheehan, Carter , Pelosi, Ellison etc ….

Now look at the sunni ( bin Laden, Zawahiri, al qaeda, saudi royals )supporters:
Hussain, Holder and Hillary mainly

Lets use this to study the events of the last 2 years

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Dr Evil on July 11, 2010 at 8:27 PM

She is hardly alone in that. But it is disrespectful of Islam to speak of it negatively and as there is nothing nice to say about it….you had better say nothing so as not to embarrass the pathetic little folk.

This is a confusing time for common folks. Without W around to assure them of the beauty of Islam once a month, a lot of people begin to fidget about the “peace and tolerance” thingy.

Are you effing kidding me? Cindy Sheehan is “principled and consistent….”?

Cindy Sheehan is a kook and a nut.

She’s a sick lady or plays one really well.

Schadenfreude on July 11, 2010 at 10:04 PM

It takes an idiot to take Cindy Sheehan seriously. If all you’re known for is being a peace activist, but you don’t even know the difference between a peace symbol and the Mercedes Benz logo, you should be laughed off the air.

And yes, that photo is legit. I took it from yahoo news a few years ago.
