    Cindy's Real Name: Cindy Marxist Sheehan

    When Cindy Sheehan was passing through New Orleans she was doing some blogging on Michael Moore's web site. From one of her entries:
    Malik Rahim, a new friend of ours and resident of Algiers, told us stories of the days after the hurricane . . . . The people who were supposed to look after its citizens, our government, failed them.

    Malik has also set up a communications center in an apartment next to his house which is for the community to use. The aid that is being given in Algiers is completely driven by the needs of the community. They have a saying in Algiers: Not Charity, Solidarity. . . . I think Algiers can be a model for all of our communities.
    From the Powerline, these excerpts:
    Who is Cindy's new friend Malik Rahim? He is conventionally described as a "veteran of the Black Panther Party in New Orleans," and was recently a Green Party candidate for local office there. But the truth is somewhat worse. Rahim is a Communist. Here is a speech he gave to the Communist Manifesto conference in December 1998; it begins:

    I'm here on behalf of two revolutionary freedom fighters that have spent the last 26 years in solitary confinement in Angola, a state prison in Louisiana. I met these freedom fighters as a political prisoner in 1970. I was in a shoot-out with the police in New Orleans as a member of the Black Panther Party.

    Cindy Sheehan's association with these Communists is no fluke. They are among her most fervent supporters (or, perhaps, manipulators). Sheehan has announced that she will participate in a climactic anti-Iraq war protest in Washington on September 24. Who is the co-sponsor of the September 24 demonstration? International ANSWER. Who has promoted the "Camp Caseys" that have sprung up here and there? the Workers World Party. Who has a special web page devoted to "supporting Cindy Sheehan"? the International Action Center.

    What makes these associations doubly sick is that the International Action Center, International ANSWER and the Workers World Party were, prior to the Iraq war, staunch supporters of Saddam Hussein and his Baath regime. See, for example, this tirade by Ramsey Clark, leader of the IAC, who later volunteered to represent Saddam.
    Rumor has it that Hillary Clinton will meet with Cindy for a possible position in the Hillary Clinton administration should she win the presidency. Mrs. Clinton said that she admires Cindy and has much in common with her.
