Cindy Sheehan: Liberal Necrophilia


Figuratively, the term "necrophilia" describes an inordinate desire to control another person, usually in the context of a romantic or interpersonal relationship; the accusation is that the person is so interpersonally controlling as to be better-suited to relationships with nonresponsive people...

...Virtually all human societies condemn abuse of the dead as a form of symbolic disrespect...

In the analytic social psychology of Erich Fromm necrophilia is a character orientation which shows an increasing tendency toward destructiveness.

Normal mothers don't use their children's graves for a photo op. Cindy... seek help. Now.

That picture is just gross.

You know what really ticks me off about this? It is not Sheehan she is obviously mentally ill, no it is the MSM and the far left who are using her for their own agenda.

She may very well be a useful idiot for the MSM, but she is a willing useful idiot.

I find this to be a picture of a very pathetic person. The left can try to moralize this all day long; but, it just won't wash.

With book, play and movie deals, why would Cindy try to go back to dealing with her loss in a healthy way? I agree that she is a willing useful idiot. It's too bad, but she has turned a corner and probably cannot go back until she has wrung every iota of publicity out of her son's death.

The first image that came to my mind, was that her HERO SON can't even rest in peace!

Any Mom who would exploit the death of her own son like Cindy has should receive pity and then be ignored. This photo is just one more reminder of that.

Ugh. A thousand words, indeed.
