Yet another example of someone on the Left who is sensitive and tolerant. I'm sure that somewhere, her apologists are already lining up to excuse her "poor choice of words" by saying she's "passionate" and "excitable." She takes the easiest public relations tactic and claims her righteous indignation is because of and on behalf of "the children."
|I have a very hard time with this word 'non-violence', because I don't believe that I am non-violent," said Ms Williams, 64. |
"Right now, I would love to kill George Bush." Her young audience at the Brisbane City Hall clapped and cheered.
"I don't know how I ever got a Nobel Peace Prize, because when I see children die the anger in me is just beyond belief. It's our duty as human beings, whatever age we are, to become the protectors of human life."
She takes a page straight from Cindy Sheehan's playbook when she visits a local Children's hospital in Iraq and claims that because of US occupation, babies are being born with cancer and they can't get the medicines that would save their lives because of the US embargo.
The MSM gives her a pass because, again like Sheehan, she is praised for her courage and commitment. What courage does it take to stand up and act as benefactor for kids in a war?!?!!?
Princess Diana pulled the same tactic by "taking a stand" on LandMines. Wow! Now there's a burning issue to tackle. Don't go out and demonstrate against Muslim extremists. Don't go out and fight for the rights of US soldiers who are wrongly accused of murder. Don't go out and question why followers of Islam are going around blowing themselves and other people up all the time.
No! Don't do that. Go talk about how George Bush is evil. America is evil. Our occupation of Iraq is all about oil, capitalism, and Haliburton.
It never ceases to amaze me to see mediocrity rewarded. Cindy Sheehan is a noboby who's thinly veiled anti-American claptrap enshrouds her dead son.
Williams claim to fame is that she started a petition to end violence in Northern Ireland. Of course she didn't care about the root causes of the violence. She just wanted the violence to end.
I can't wait for all these SDS-Hippy-types to just fall off the face of the earth and die. THEN, the world will be a better place.
The only redeeming quality that I can say about Betty Williams is that she looks much like that hot MILF over at Wifey's World. Could Wifey be Betty's child?
Now that would make alot of sense.
