The Five: Unlike Hillary, Palin Was Fair Game to Media Because She’s ‘Not Human’
Mediaite ^ | May 20, 2014 | Josh Feldman

Posted on 05/21/2014 10:49:37 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

The hosts of The Five today took on the media double standard in covering Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin, based on Palin’s Facebook post calling out said double standard, with Greg Gutfeld surmising that unlike Clinton, Palin was fair game because to the media, she’s “not human.”

Gutfeld argued, “They treated her like an alien cartoon, because no one in the media had ever come into contact with anybody like Sarah Palin, yet they were constantly surrounded by people like Hillary Clinton, which are petulant progressives with a thirst for power.”

And it’s not just on issues of health, he and Eric Bolling also brought up the attacks on Palin’s children, which were never tolerated about Chelsea Clinton. Bolling said it was “the most disgusting thing” the media did, as opposed to the “very legitimate question” Karl Rove threw out about Clinton possibly suffering from brain damage.

In all fairness, this was evidently shorthand for “they considered her not human.” It’s eastern-speak to exaggerate for dramatic effect. Not smart, though.

She ran and won election for Senator in New York before she had paid one dollar of New York taxes. Try doing that if the media is not behind you.

If anyone was not human it is Hitlery, all you have to do is look at her record.

...no one in the media had ever come into contact with anybody like Sarah Palin...

That is a perfectly legitimate point, and a damning one. "Who is this weird creature who says 'you betcha' and shoots animals?" And after all this time they STILL don't get it.

Sarah Palin is a Christian conservative that revels in a physically challenging lifestyle and that is absolutely foreign to the media elites.

Palin's stable marriage, her obvious love for her children and most of all, her conservative political views, made her 'fair game' for the leftist character assassins because she was, in their jaundiced view, an alien creature that warranted elimination before she influenced others.

Palin was gravely wounded in one sense but recovered and if not a viable political candidate right now, may yet be. Especially as America feels the pain of the socialist schemes being foisted upon us by Obama and the Democrats.

not only that, but the MSM has never met anyone in their circle who actually kept their down-syndrome baby and not abort it or who’s in a mainstream, hetro, God loving marriage.

....I sarc, but not that much.

Trig REALLY upsets leftists. It’s amazing, even my “benchmark libinlaw” mentioned “that baby” as one of the reasons they hated her.

I have an inkling as to why, as well. They know they would have murdered him and Sarah’s decision points that out. They don’t LIKE to have their sin pointed out to them.

Trig was very definitely the watershed in the hate campaign, a thing I found, and continue to find, profoundly disturbing. Do you recall the moment in the first Lord of the Rings movie where Bilbo talks of the Ring and for a terrifying second he has sharp teeth and a maniacal expression? I saw that in some of my liberal acquaintances when the conversation turned to Trig Palin. They regard his very existence as an affront. It is the face of evil.

Liberals consider anyone who dares to disagree with them non-human.

They consider minorities to be their property.

At least the plantation owners considered their slaves 3/5 of a person. That’s 60 percent more than current liberals.

The 3/5 rule was actually an anti-slavery position of the North to try and limit the South’s representation in the House; i.e., not allowing slaves to be counted as full persons lowered their population count.

Ping to Sarah's Awesome List!

It's easy to hate an object or idea.

It's hard to hate an actual person.

A person who loves her children and living a good life more than anything.

It is those who live and work inside the Beltway, and who draw a paycheck from the msm who are not human. There is no question they are the face of evil.

Just remember John 15, Sarah -

If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. “If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you.…

I’ve known people who can hate everyone and everything, just because they hate themselves and who they are so much.

Sarah represents all that is good and honest and AMERICAN when she campaigns, and lots of folks can’t stand that...it makes them physically recoil. Kinda like the evil minions when they were cast from the swine...

Watch them head for the cliff edge.

The left can’t stand Sarah Palin because she is what they wish they were..a loving, caring, God loving human being. When they see Trig they see the child they aborted that is what makes them SO angry when they see his adorable face and his smile, they see the child they killed and it makes them angry..they wish Sarah had murdered her child but she refused to because she values life..the left sees a happy family, with their challenges yes, but happy, and they hate it, because leftists are miserable miserable human beings and they can’t stand seeing anyone happy..No matter what they throw at Sarah she is always happy, always with a smile on her face and that is what they despise

I keep saying, that with enough pressure from Americans, the Libs will implode under their own explosive hatred.

The Lord promised that as long as America was led in righteousness, He would continue to bless it. It is a warning to Americans that we are now witness to the evil that has been allowed to rule for so long.

If I understood all I should about the Constitution, I would break it down, explain it line by line, and email it to everyone I know with the plea that it be emailed to everyone THEY know. America is being assailed, and she needs people to be educated, not dummied down by Common Core, Political Correctness and “Racism.”

However, that ability is not mine to claim...CFIDS makes it difficult to understand complex language...including knitting and crochet instructions!

Back in the late sixties and early seventies when media outlets began hiring females and minorities in large numbers, virtually every female and minority scribbler they hired were radicals. Most females hired to scribble for the major rags were arch-feminists. Whenever some topic concerning women arose, these femi-hacks would always go to another radical feminist like Gloria Steinem or Betty Friedman for the “women’s” slant on the issue. Non radical feminist females like Phylis Schafly were were rarely consulted. Despite the fact that average women far more resembled Sarah Palin in their beliefs than the radical feminists. It continues today.

When the press trades 'ins' with democrat sources for their integrity - it's newsworthy. Not enough people know it's going on...

Not so. They considered a slave not to be a person at all, in their right to vote (&c) - but, hypocritically, to be a full person for census purposes which determined how many representatives their state was entitled to. The position of the northern states was that since slaves weren’t voters their numbers should not count at all for purposes of representation. The compromise agreed to in the Constitution ceded to the slave states 3/5 of their hypocrisy on the issue of representation.

The hypocritical position of Democrats today is their insinuation that it was the 2/5 concession that the antislavery North won at the convention, and not the ability of free southern voters to elect “Representatives” of 3/5 of those whom they enslaved, which was hypocritical.

The plantation owners viewed their slaves as more human than today’s Democrats view their descendants.
