Call Out the Instigator: Revised

by Cindy Sheehan, July 3, 2007

note: since I wrote this, the Rev's hearing has been postponed for a month, so we will be starting our walk from Crawford (Camp Casey) on July 10th. We are working on the route and logistics and will have those details out on Friday, the 6th. We will be walking 8 hours a day, then driving to the next case people are wondering how we will get to DC on the 23rd.

Call out the Instigator
Because there’s something in the air
We got to get together sooner or later
Because the revolution’s here
You know it’s right!
Thunderclap Newman

I’m not backing off. I tried to remove myself from the
political realm of the US, what BushCo is turning into
an Evil Empire, but the blatant audacity of George
commuting Scooter’s sentence (he’s not ruling out a
full pardon ---and you know he will) has dragged me
kicking and screaming back in. I can’t sit back and
let this BushCo drag our country further down into the
murky quagmire of Fascism and violence, taking the
rest of the world with them!

I have sat quietly back these past five weeks as the
slaughter in Iraq sorrowfully surges along with
George’s bloody escalation---and as the philosophical
opposition to the war has soared to almost four out of
every five Americans. I have remained silent when
Senator Barack Obama said that impeachment is only
reserved for “grave, grave” breeches! Well, BushCo has
created hundreds of thousands of graves dug by their
lies and greed. For cripes’ sake, George admitted to
breaking the FISA Act (which is a felony) that also
breeched the 4th Amendment to our Constitution that
already prohibited illegal search and seizure. How was
Bill Clinton’s offense graver than George's, Dick's,
or Scooter's? Did we ever think that the criminality
and arrogance of the Nixon White House would be
eclipsed in our time with nary a “baaaah” from the
Sheeple in Congress?

George has said that America doesn’t “do torture” when
we have all seen the images of torture from Abu Ghraib
(don’t believe your lyin’ eyes) and know that hundreds
of people sold to the US Army for an immoral bounty
are incarcerated within the inhumane confines of
Guantanamo Prison which is right in our own back yard.

I have had to bite my tongue---HARD---as the George
and Dick crime cabal, (formerly known has the
executive branch) have claimed that their offices are
not to be held up to the same standards of
accountability and control as any other entity in the
human race, governmental or private.

It has been recently reported that Nancy Pelosi said
that impeachment is not “worth it.” Her faulty
reasoning is that impeachment would take too much time
because they don’t have the votes. If they could
“whip” their own Democratic caucus into shape to
defend and protect our Constitution and the people of
Iraq and our soldiers as they whupped, cajoled,
threatened and browbeat the caucus into attaching
“non-binding” time lines onto the last war funding
bill, then impeachment would not only be possible, but

The recent commutation of I. Scooter Libby’s sentence,
however, was the straw that broke my camel’s back of
exhausted ennui. Patrick Fitzgerald is a thoughtful
and thorough prosecutor who did a heroic job of
bringing at least one of the Bush Crime Mob to
justice. Even though we were all very pleased, we knew
that it was not enough and that Mr. Fitzgerald would
delve deeper into the feces infested executive branch.
The lawlessness of the Bush Administration has reached
wild west proportions and the inmates definitely have
control of the US(A)sylum.

A very dear friend of mine, Rev. Lennox Yearwood of
the Hip Hop Caucus, is being harassed by the Air Force
for “Conduct Unbecoming an Officer and a Gentleman”
because “The Rev” fulfills his duty as an Officer and
a Gentleman honorably by protesting Iraq and the
Fascist Bush Regime almost constantly. The Rev is
still in Individual Ready Reserve so the Air Force
believes it is within its parameters to pursue the
charges, although every “Officer and Gentleman(woman)”
should be protesting the atrocious mistakes in the
Middle East. After The Rev’s hearing on July 12th, (in
Macon, GA) he is going to begin a “symbolic” walk from
the Reverend Martin Luther King’s grave (Atlanta, GA)
to DC---I am going to be there for him and to begin
the march, but I am not going to make it symbolic.

We are going to walk from Atlanta, GA to Congress
beginning July 13th and ending up in DC on July 23rd
to send the mis-leaders back home to face the music of
justice in their own districts.

It is about time us “peasants” (in the eyes of the
Fascist Ruling Elite) march on DC with our
“pitchforks” of righteous anger and our “torches” of
truth to demand the ouster of BushCo. I have a dream
of the detention centers that George has built and
filled being instead filled with Orange Clad neo-cons
and neo-connettes.

If Congress won’t dig BushCo’s political grave, it is
the People’s job to do so. Thomas Jefferson said that
we need a Revolution every 20 years, or so, to keep
our Republic honest. Over 225 years have passed since
our last Revolution (if you don't count the War
Between the States) and we are long overdue for one.
Turn off your TVs, kiss your pets goodbye, bring the
kids and flock to the federal seat of corruption, or
join us on our walk there, for a People's
Accountability Movement to be in the face of the
Criminal BushCo and the Complicit Congress for the
last week of session before they go on their
undeserved vacations (why do they get vacations when
the Iraqi parliamentarians don’t?)

On the eve of our first revolution: You know it’s

Author’s note: Please, I already see “Attention Whore
Back.” If anyone thinks that I am going to walk
hundreds of miles in the Deep South during July for
attention, then please join us! We will be publishing
our route and plans for Accountability events along
the way, within the next few days. Stay tuned.
