Cindy Sheehan Calls for Boycott of ‘O’Reilly Factor’ Sponsors at Daily Kos

The Kos Kidz must be so happy to have a diarist named Cindy Sheehan in their company. Of course, oddly enough, many of them are actually to her left politically.

Regardless, Sheehan’s most recent post at Daily Kos displayed her usual reverence for the office of the President of the United States and all things conservative…NOT!

Her real hatred was directed at Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly, culminating with a plea for left-minded people to boycott his sponsors.

As such, let me warn readers: Proceed with caution. You are about to enter a No Logic Zone (h/t LGF), emphasis added throughout):

A recent Harris Poll indicated that only 22% of Americans support George’s war of terror. I suspect that the less than one-fourth of our country who are still in favor of the hopeless mess BushCo has tragically involved the USA in get all of their "news" from Fox News.

I’m not sure what Harris Poll Sheehan was talking about, as the Harris website indicates that the organization hasn’t done a poll dealing with terrorism so far this year. Yet, according to, 45 percent of Americans approved of the President’s handling of the war on terrorism in an April CBS News poll. This is similar to the results of a Newsweek survey conducted at the end of March which also identified a 45 percent approval rate.

As is typical, facts are irrelevant for these folks.

Regardless, Sheehan was just getting warmed up:

So far, I have ignored this and stayed above the Fox news defamation of my character. It would not take a moral giant the equivalent of a Mother Teresa to stay above Fox NewsI . They have no conscious or credibility. I can’t think of many people lower than Fox News, their employees and frequent neo-con contributors as Michelle Malkin, Ann Coulter, William Kristol, etc.

It appears that Sheehan’s motto, much like her followers, is “So much hate, so little time.”

Yet, that was only the beginning, for Sheehan then really set her sights on Bill O’Reilly, eventually calling for a boycott of his sponsors:

The person who isn’t misinformed though, is Mr. Bill O’Reilly. If he had a conscious, he should be ashamed of leading 22% of this country astray. The Jesus of Fox News thinks it is okay to kill innocent people for profit, but my Jesus said: "woe to he that causes one of the little ones to stumble. It would be better for that person to tie a millstone around his neck and be sunk in the depth of the sea." (Mt 18:6) O’Reilly and the rest of the bad shepherds at Fox News are thankfully seeing their flock decline, but they are abrogating their responsibility to inform their viewers properly and are making a mockery out of objective reporting.


It is not because of his public libel of me, I have often found his weird attraction to me a little humorous and very sad, but because of G.I. Joe, I am calling for a boycott of every sponsor of Bill O’Reilly’s show. When his empty spin zone is shut down, hopefully the rest of the purveyors of Bush propaganda will get the message.

I’m verklempt. Talk amongst yourselves.
