Cindy Sheehan became a dedicated anti-war activist after losing her son Casey to America’s senseless foreign policy in the Iraq War. She confronted George W. Bush in Texas, at what came to be called Camp Casey, and would later chain herself to the White House fence. She was dubbed the “International Peace Mom.” She ran unsuccessfully for Congress in 2008 and served as Rosanne Barr’s vice-presidential running mate for the Peace and Freedom Party.
Cindy was one of the founding members of the Gold Star Families for Peace. After she refused to pay her federal income taxes for 2005, the year her son was killed, she was sued by the government in 2012 for failure to pay back taxes. “If they can give me my son back, then I’ll pay my taxes,” Cindy declared. She has been referred to as “the Rosa Parks of the antiwar movement.” A true bipartisan, Cindy began to be shunned by the Left when she criticized Barack Obama’s own militarism and refused to treat Donald Trump any differently.
