Activist Cindy Sheehan Brags About Tax Evasion to Occupy Crowd [Video]
Cindy Sheehan hasn’t paid her income taxes for the last 7-years. The activist, who famously camped out on George W. Bush’s ranch after her son was killed while serving in Iraq, spoke to several protesters during Occupy the Rose Parade on Monday.
Sheehan says that she hasn’t paid her income taxes 7-years because she refuses to fund the US Government as it commits “crimes against humanity.”
“This is a picture of my son. We should never forget the victims of the 1%, or the robber class… (When the government) decided to give $850 billion wall street I decided that I’m giving myself a bailout… I’m not paying the bill anymore. I haven’t paid my income tax since my son was killed. I refuse to be a funder for their crimes against humanity.”
Here’s a video of Cindy Sheehan’s speech.
Do you agree with Cindy Sheehan? Are the American people guilty for funding “crimes against humanity” Is it time for revolution? Is it time for the IRS to audit Sheehan?
This lady has grown from a Mother who has lost her son, to someone who now thinks she has special privilages for the rest of her life. I feel for her loss, and accept her right to protest, and even excuse the rude way, her and her protesting groups made Bush's neighbors miserable for months, urinated on their property, and trampled things growing in their yards. However bragging she has not paid or filed taxes in 7 years, unless her income was below the level for filing, is tax evasion, regardless of her son dying in battle. She is not the only Mother, Father, Spouse, Child, Brother or Sister to have lost a loved one. In addition, she is also saying she refuses to pay taxes that will help provide care to those wounded in battle. There is no excuse for what she is doing, and IMHO should be prosocuted, just like a number of famous people in prison today for it.
