(Using the word "Blast" in the headline is way overblown from what she actually said....but, typical)
The first 10 minutes of "The Undefeated" doc features entertainers using vulgar language aimed at Palin, who told THR it was the first time she'd seen most of it: "It makes you want to reach out to some of these folks and say, What's your problem?"
PELLA, Iowa -- Sarah Palin stared a bit uncomfortably at a movie screen Tuesday night watching a montage of Matt Damon, David Letterman, Madonna, Howard Stern, Bill Maher, Louis C.K. and other celebrities malign her, then asked The Hollywood Reporter: "What would make someone be so full of hate?" our editor recommends Keith Olbermann Slams 'Very Stupid' Sarah Palin, Jokes About Anthony Weiner 'Sarah Palin's Alaska' Breaks TLC Ratings Record Sarah Palin, Bristol Palin File to Trademark Their Names
Palin was in Pella, Iowa, at the premiere of a documentary about her called The Undefeated, which opens with several minutes of Hollywood entertainers using some of the most vulgar language imaginable to express their displeasure with the former vice presidential candidate. Some appear genuinely angry, and director Steve Bannon cuts to news footage twice in the film of Palin being hung in effigy.
After the movie, as throngs of supporters and reporters clamored for attention, THR asked her: "In the first 10 minutes where all the celebrities are trashing you, how do you respond to something like that?"

Palin said she hadn't seen or heard much of the TV and radio footage before seeing it in the movie, which bleeped some of the dirtier language, though it was easy to determine what the entertainers were saying, including lots of profane references to the female anatomy.
"This is the first that I've seen much of that. It kind of takes you back," she told THR. "It makes you want to reach out to some of these folks and say, What's your problem? And what was the problem? And what is the problem?

"What would make a celebrity, like you saw on screen, so hate someone that they'd seek their destruction, their death, the death of their children? What would make someone be so full of hate and, I guess, a sense of being threatened that they would want to see that person destroyed?"
The movie begins with Sen. John McCain introducing his running mate, then quickly cuts to the Hollywood sign, and the music turns ominous. A TV news anchor says, "Hollywood has a new favorite pastime: taking aim at Sarah Palin."
Then the celebrity montage begins: Damon likens Palin to a "really bad Disney movie" and says she's "really scary" and Letterman calls her "slutty," and the discourse descends in to the filthy from there. Maher calls her a "dumb twat" on his TV show, Madonna screams "Sarah F------ Palin" while on stage, and comedians use graphic, severely bleeped language to describe how Palin gave birth to a "retard." One entertainer after another calls Palin a "slut" or a "bitch" or describes the intensity with which they "hate her."

As things got pushy with the media and the rest of the crowd and a security detail got more aggressive in protecting the former governor of Alaska, THR asked if she intended on defending herself against future celebrity barbs.
"I think the movie does that for me. But you know, there's never really a venue that absolutely lets somebody set the record straight. I mean, there are so many false narratives about me, about Todd, about our kids, about my record, about my team that has worked so hard together, that there's never gonna be a way to absolutely set the record straight."
I’m not a huge Palin fan, but seriously, what has she done other than be a conservative female who chose not to kill her child because he wasn’t perfect, that she would deserve the vile treatment she has gotten?
She threatens ‘business as usual’ in Washington and other arenas...
The new liberal “civility” on the big screen is more like the old liberal childishness that started in the 60’s.
Sadly...those clips of these so called celebrities are just a tip of the iceberg. I bet if you got the complete collection from these moron talking heads on CNN,MSNBC etc... it would be a 3 month movie!
Maybe the felt she was “gunning” for them and they felt “targeted”.
What else does she need to have done? Her very existence is an intolerable affront to the abortion-loving left. I'm convinced that nothing, not socialism, not gun control, not even sodomy, is as important to the (un)American left as the unfettered "right" to kill babies.
and many others like it, damns the left for the bloody-handed murderers that they are. They hate her for it like they hate nobody else. It's truly demonic.
Steady as she goes, Sarah....you’re taking flak...they’re pounding you....open the bombay doors when the time is right.
“but seriously, what has she done.............”
I’ve thought for a while the media is just using the name “Sarah Palin” as cover for what they really think about Middle America. And, it’s really starting to come out in the open more as somebody a day or two ago referred to Middle Americans as “slope-heads”. The word “racist” has pretty much run it’s course, so the left will continue to try out new words during this election cycle.
I love the part where some “Limey” asks her “Do you think your political career is over?”
Sarah takes a swig of water and replies “Ask these people” and the crowd erupts with approval for her.
The vileness is in direct proportion to her perceived effectiveness.
They are genuinely afraid of her. They’ve even said so.
Do you have a link to those clips?
I looked for it and didn’t find.
I think you are right... can’t think of any other word.... demonic.....it is a twisted world the leftist lives in.
Agree with your inauguration prediction. Sarah is using this film to launch her campaign and the Drive-Bys are too stupid to see it (figuratively and literally!). The film will be standard operating procedure in all campaigns of the future...
Sarah has dragged these roaches out into the light, and exposed them for all Americans to see...
Perhaps this will offer some insight into the minds of the Palin haters...
