I remember when Sarah Palin was picked to be the GOP nominee for VP the leftist web site The Reclusive Leftist was absolutely delighted at her nomination.
Violet was one of the few leftists and liberals who were absolutely appalled at the sexism at the sexism directed at Governor Palin and even after Barack Obama was safely elected she still was having none of it.
One reason I’ve written as many posts as I have about Palin is because I’m so baffled by the reaction to her..
…the first answer you’ll get if you ask feminists why they hate Sarah Palin is that “it’s because she ____” — and then fill in the blank with the lie of choice: made rape victims pay for their own kits, is against contraception or sex ed, believes in abstinence-only, thinks the dinosaurs were here 4000 years ago, doesn’t believe in global warming, doesn’t believe in evolution, is stupid and can’t read, etc., etc., etc., etc.
But none of those things is true. None of them.
Violet took the time to find out what Sarah Palin actually said and did, and while they disagree on abortion she found most of the stuff said about her were BS and made that case to other however…
But after you’ve had a few of these myth-dispelling conversations, you start to realize that it doesn’t matter. These people don’t hate Palin because of the lies; the lies exist to justify the hate. That’s why they keep reaching and reaching for something else, until they finally get to “she winked on TV!”
Ironically the movie “we will not be silenced” was never made, apparently they WERE silenced.
That willingness to be played is exactly what Sarah Palin is addressing here:
As a pro-life, pro-marriage, Roman Catholic I don’t expect many feminists to take my word, but I invite women to watch that clip from Sarah Palin and consider the question she asks: which party acts as if the totality of your being is your reproductive organs?
It’s not the party of Marilinda Garica.
