This speech is about how one person can make a difference, and I am standing here because after my son was killed, I rejected the myth that I could not—I made a conscious decision that I would not grieve or suffer in silence—that my voice would be heard. So I got up off my tear-soaked couch and took on the most powerful man in the entire world and I won, damnit! I WON!
George Bush and his band of neoconservative criminals lost all credibility and self-proclaimed mandate for disaster—But here’s the 64 thousand dollar question: if I won in 2005, then why are we still in these wars and why is the worldwide economy sinking like a ten-ton weight in our contaminated oceans?
Because, although one person can make a big splash and change minds and perspectives, it will take all of us together to actually change policy—and that’s what I call a revolution.
So, this speech is not only my story, but also a call to action.
Even though Bush is thankfully gone, and nobody misses him, Obama is continuing his 3rd term and the geopolitical paradigm is being reinforced everyday with propagandized and mythologized Americans falling for every obvious lie that spews forth from Obama and his co-conspirators in our Lamestream Media.
Men (and their lady’s auxiliary of War-Women) have been mucking up this planet for far too long.
I don’t think I have to inform anyone here that the global elite, male dominated culture of corruption and violence are afraid of women—I have been subjected to horrible demonization campaigns and misogynistic attitudes since I decided to wage a campaign against the US Empire—even from well-meaning male peace advocates.
If Cindy can make it through the rest of Barack Obama's presidency, I think what will happen is that the same people on the left and 'left' who ostracize her now will be singing her praises. Because she had the ethics that so many of them lack.
They do not have the ethics. So they will have to try to have them by association. They will laud her and praise her.
And we will be expected never to notice that The Nation, The Progressive, etc., spent the Obama presidency ignoring Cindy and ignoring the work that matters.
It is a shame that they cannot support her when she needs it. Even more of a shame is that they cannot at least attempt to copy Cindy's courage.
