The Palin story reminds me a lot of what Clarence Thomas went through back in 1991.
This video is one of the most dramatic moments of the last 20 years. Clarence Thomas went in front of Sen. Biden’s committee to answer some of the outrageous lies told about him.
Why were lefties trying to destroy him? Because Thomas refused to kiss Jesse Jackson’s ring in order to make it in life.
Thomas decided that there was a better way. He did not buy into the welfare state. He escaped from the Dems’ plantation.
This is how he reacted to the angry left’s attacks on his integrity:
Sarah Palin is having her own little moment with the feminists, another division of the US angry left!
In Why They Hate Her (Sarah Palin is a smart missile aimed at the heart of the left), Jeffrey Bell reminds us that this woman is not what the angry feminists had in mind for our first VP or President:
“From the instant of Palin’s designation on Friday, August 29, the American left went into a collective mass seizure from which it shows no sign of emerging. The left blogosphere and elite media have, for the moment, joined forces and become indistinguishable from each other, and from the supermarket tabloids, in their desire to find and use anything that will criminalize and/or humiliate Palin and her family….
The simple fact of her being a pro-life married mother of five with a thriving political career was–before anything else about her was known–enough for the left and its outliers to target her for destruction. She could not be allowed to contradict symbolically one of the central narratives of the left. How galling it will be to Sarah Palin’s many new enemies if she survives this assault and prevails. If she does, her success may be an important moment in the struggle to shape not just America’s politics but its culture.”
I guess that the feminist left is having massive indigestion. After all, how dare a mother have a baby? Isn’t the modern thing to do to have an abortion when you find out that your baby has down syndrome?
But it gets better! Check out Jack Kelly:
“With a smile on her face, Mrs. Palin sliced and diced Barack Obama with the skill she dresses a moose she just shot.”
What could be better than watching Tony Romo lead the Cowboys to a Super Bowl victory?
How about watching a bunch of angry feminists make fools of themselves?
