Dr. Laura On Hannity: Sarah Palin Is Criticized Because “She Has Balls”
Mediaite ^ | January 18, 2011 | Matt Schneider

Posted on 01/18/2011 8:44:39 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Dr. Laura Schlessinger appeared with Sean Hannity to continue discussing the double standard that she believes applies to social conservatives and to explain why she’s happy about being on satellite radio after leaving the regulated terrestial airwaves as a result of her N-word filled tirade last summer.

Most interesting however, was Dr. Laura’s thoughts on fellow conservative woman and media target Sarah Palin. When Hannity wondered why Palin is always picked on, Dr. Laura offered the following diagnosis:

Because . . . can I say it bluntly? She has balls. And they don’t like that in a woman. She’s pretty, she’s smart, she’s tough, she’s strong, she won’t quit, she won’t back down. They can’t stand that. And now they got two of us.

Following in Palin’s footsteps, Dr. Laura also alleged that freedom of speech is in jeopardy, and that speech today is too often stifled by whether or not somebody might be offended. Though the dynamic duo of Sarah and Laura don’t seem too willing to be silenced for any reason anytime soon.

Dr Laura has it right IMO.
I remember Laura had something with a previous radio giant called Bill Balance???
He kept pictures and tried to frame her about 15 years ago.

Laura is a tough lady.

By picking up the mantra of oxymoronic testicular metaphors for courage, Dr. Laura is remaking herself in the image of Palin cultists dream woman. She has to choose sides fast after using the word nigger on her radio show.

Sad to say, there are no men aspiring to leadership positions that have the balls that these two women have.

Men in this country have been wussified!

I remember listening to her when I had young kids....she had it exactly right about selfish (feminist) women who never dreamed of sacrificing for their children and were dumping them off in daycare. Inhumane—she would blast them and homosexuals for trying to destroy the man/woman/children paradigm and giving up their children and destroying their emotional health and allowing strangers (getting minimal wage) to form their worldview.

The family is what the cultural Marxists have been trying to destroy since the 1930’s in this country and have pretty well succeeded. Dr. Laura was one of the few that tried to thwart their agenda with her common sense (which comes from Natural Law Theory, BTW). She had it exactly right (I, myself, raised five children and worked in the schools quite a bit). I saw the damage done to children in divorce and those without fathers and/or abusive fathers. Very sad for the children and their future.

They are all men in politics, but they are quieted from taking positions because they aspire to higher office.

We get nobodies running most often because the less you know about someone, the better it seems to be for the candidate lately.

I agree, and the left has been spouting so much communist BS that many kids coming up think nothing of hearing that from politicians when they are adults.

BAD for the country.

The men have been feminized or under-cover—hiding. They know they will be called names by the Marxists, like homophobe, bigot, racist if they open their mouths. The real men are starting families or putting their children through school and don’t have time for this garbage and just try to make a living with everything stacked against them.

The Prussian forced school system designed by Dewey leads to mass conformity of thinking....those who think outside the box are marginalized and humiliated in subtle ways by the teacher....all planned by the psychologists in the 30’s—read the book, The Underground History of Education by Gato. The cultural Marxists invaded the Teacher’s College and Foundations and Universities and installed a curricula right off of Pavlov’s Behavorism mode to form little non-thinking Marxists.

Buckley wrote about the “collectivist Atheism” being forced into the curricula in Yale in 1951. It is intentional. It was the white heterosexual male who made this country the greatest in the history of the world. They are the target...they did a study on authoritarianism....to destroy that quality in the male—in the labs.

Homosexuality and Feminism are the camel’s noses under the tent—to destroy the family unit. Destroying the male and female biological role models particularly damages the little boys. They will not grow up to be real men if they have no loving male role model.

Charles Manson never knew who his father was. His mother was a 16 year old prostitute. He was sodomized in a boy’s institution and by the time he was 17 he took a rasor to a boy and sodomized him. Children learn behaviors. It is really quite simple and psychologists have known that pathologies are almost universally caused by absent or abusive fathers. They destroyed the Black family on purpose with socialism....just as they are now doing to all families. They are destroying us from within.

Another article at mediate, John what’s his name says he changed his mind. Sarah will run, the first to articulate conservative principles since 1964 and we are lucky to have her!

“Are you your kid’s mom?”

Her advice was sound- she was Jewish, conservative and refreshing. She had a checkered past- do any of us get to skip redemption by virtue of our sinlessness?

She didn’t have the same calling as SP, but she blazed a trail for social-values-strong women. She drew similar sulfuric acid.

Read my post no. 9. Two books I read really pointed to the origin of the destruction of the “thinking” of our children through the school system with Jimmy Commie Carter putting the final nail into the coffin.

The Closing of the American Mind by Bloom
The Underground History of American Education by Gato
also The Cloning of the American Mind by Eakman (?) She writes about the methodologies put into the school which intentionally destroys the intellect. She researched where they originated, etc. very detailed.

All this nonsense is to destroy the Morality and Character and Intellect of the white heterosexual male. With that, they destroy the concept of family. Very easy. Marx hated the family unit....all Marxists do—it creates strong, independent, individualists loyal to family and relatives who have a great support system to defy government. They have the emotional help to with stand the Marxist name-calling (Alinsky) which is to demoralize the person and make them cower in a corner.

Reagan was an example who the Communists hated when he was Pres of the Actors Guild when the communists were trying to take it over. He stood up to them—it destroyed his first marriage. Reagan was a real man with character. Can’t have that in the Marxist utopia....just men who cower.

Dr. Laura was not supportive of Palin when McCain picked her.

She stood up to the cultural Marxism which is trying to destroy the family. They destroy the family==they destroy the nation.

She thinks exactly like the Founding Fathers.....and her Jewishness added to her rich vocabulary. I love logical people.

Yes, she was flawed which the Marxist always point out. They try to discredit any voice which goes against their agenda and they are vicious. Whittaker Chambers wrote about the vicious attacks and the polemic of our last century: God or man. It is ongoing.

Dr. Laura’s on McCain’s choice of Sarah Palin for VP:

“I’m stunned – couldn’t the Republican Party find one competent female with adult children to run for Vice President with McCain? I realize his advisors probably didn’t want a “mature” woman, as the Democrats keep harping on his age. But really, what kind of role model is a woman whose fifth child was recently born with a serious issue, Down Syndrome, and then goes back to the job of Governor within days of the birth?”

You just used it here, and just as innocently and non-offensively as did Laura; not to describe any person in any manner. So what is the problem with that?

"We get nobodies running most often because the less you know about someone, the better it seems to be for the candidate lately.

You make a good point. I believe this is how Clinton and Obama got elected. The Dems love to play the Dark Horse. I heard Huckabee say recently that it was too soon to be talking about a run for the presidency. He said that if you run too early, you give the media too much time to take you apart.

The way I see it, one needs the time getting the experience fighting the media. The earlier you start, the better you get fighting them. Sarah is learning the game and getting stronger every day. She is light years ahead of the pack.

Dr. Laura said straight out that she was wrong about Sarah this last summer. When Sarah stood up for her on principal, knowing what Dr. Laura had said about her previously, Sarah proved to her that she had character and integrity.

She admitted she was wrong. Having said that, I am no Dr. Laura fan. She is right on many things but she is also an opportunist and for that reason, I don’t trust her.

She is a mixed bag isn't she. What got me is a Jewish Girl got a Tattoo (i.e. she showed it to Hannity). The body is a Temple you don't do that....

What I also find interesting is that Dr. Laura noted she text or tweeted Sarah, Hmmm.... All is forgiven and potentially their is some at a mininum a mutual respect or maybe even more a friendship between the two ladies.

A good Senior Citizen friend of mine's dad was a B rated Actor and knew Ronaldus Maximus, considered him a friend. He says yes, the Commies always tried to recrute his dad, who as a commie @ heart but never joined. Later in life his dad became a conservative. But his dad told him when they were trying to destroy Reagan when he was a kid in California, don't believe it son, Ronald Reagan is a good man, he is a man of labor. His dad was very greatful for the Medical facility Reagan negoitated for the actors I gather it was something like an HMO.

She is an entertainer and has switched her religion back and forth a few times which to me is a sign of confusion in her own life.
She give the stupid basic sound advice though.

Like, you have no money, so buy food, don’t take a loan out on that new car.

Dr Laura hit the nail on the head. Sarah is a warrior. Other than Cheney and Michele Bachmann no other prominent Republican has balls.

Any Republican who would pile on during the current "hate Palin feeding frenzy" is without honor and is a coward. e.g. As Newt did yesterday.

We need conservatives with courage and conviction. Not pretenders.

Man, best statement I heard for a while!

The latest ball-less capitulation to communists was done by The Honorable, John Boehner when he renamed 0h0m0Care job "killing" bill to job "crushing" to tow the communist line of "civility" after Tucson.

Although I have no choice but to like Boehner, it's an ominous sign of more and more fear of the communist regime and its media allies. Sobbing on camera would be used against him more and more, Alinsky style.

The only "civility" the communists were experts at was mass murder of hundreds of millions of "civilians" across their bloody communist history.

Communists believe that they are better off sans civilians!

Interesting story....should not be forgotten....

I am reading about Communism...It does have a real allure to the idea (if you can suspend reality). I think Whittaker Chambers explains the allure and the inability to “break away” from that ideology the best. It is pure evil in reality.

I agree, Bachmann deserves to be on that short list as well as Cheney.

As for Newt, I don’t get him, he’s real smart but is way too eager to appease, or at least compromise. He lacks strength in his convictions.

Yea, Laura does seem to change on a dime, but I think she has done more for the Conservative movement than any other woman in modern history and helped more young women get their priorities straight as well. But now, I just can’t listen to her.
