You're an angry feminist? That's so cute...
OneNewsNow ^ | 10/3/08 | J. Matt Barber

With winds of change rivaling Hurricane Ike, John McCain's historic VP pick of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has blown away the left's mask of "inclusive tolerance," exposing an ugly and desperate countenance below. Flummoxed and frantic, their shameful attacks on Palin and her family have revealed that liberal Democrats, the mainstream media, and those malicious hacks in the "progressive" blogosphere are willing to navigate the deepest, darkest sludge of slash-and-burn politics to see their man, Barack Obama, elected President.

The way the media have dispensed with the hold-harmless tradition of "hands-off the kids" and gone after the Palin children is both deplorable and unprecedented. It tells Republicans, Independents, and moderate Democrats alike everything they need to know about the extremist nature of "Obama-mania."

Examples are plentiful. NBC joked that Todd Palin – Gov. Palin's husband and father to her five beautiful kids – was having incestuous sexual relations with his own minor daughters, in a disgusting and decidedly unfunny hit-skit on Saturday Night Live. And Lefty pro-bama blogs, such as the Daily Kos, have targeted teenage daughter, Bristol, cruelly attacking her over and again on a personal level. (I imagine Todd's itchin' to drag those patchouli-bathed pansies out to the woodshed for a not-so-tender lesson in how to properly treat his little girl.)

"How dare McCain pick her?" they bellow. "How cynical." To them, she's not a real woman and they've said as much. Just as Clarence Thomas is really a rich white guy in blackface, she's just a misogynistic female impersonator.

Not surprisingly, the ultraliberal and presumptuously self-styled "National Organization for Women" has been beating the warpath drums, claiming that Palin is "...more a conservative man than she is a woman." And Wendy Doniger – a feminist Kool-Aid guzzler with the University of Chicago – wrote in Newsweek that "[Palin's] greatest hypocrisy is in her pretense that she is a woman." (Sorry, gals; Sarah Palin's most definitely a woman. Suppose some of that hate boils down to the fact that the governor is so easy on the eyes?)

Still, it was uber-fem, Gloria Steinem, who placed her finger directly on liberal feminists' true bone of contention with Palin, writing, "She opposes just about every issue that women support....[She] opposes everything most other women want and need." Of course, Madam Steinem's "everything most other women want and need" can be summed up in a single word: abortion.

Palin blew it, you see. She made an unforgivable "choice." She publicly expressed, through both word and selfless deed, that she values all people during every stage of development, from conception to natural death. Most egregiously, she refused the sacrificial rite of passage into authentic womandom. She declined to slaughter her own unborn child, Trig, to goddess feminism – even after doctors told her he was one of those Down syndrome throwaways. Steinem called her own abortion a "pivotal and constructive experience." I guess, according to these nasty ninnies, we simply can't have a vice president who "lacks experience" in "pivoting" and "constructing."

Think about it. Sarah Palin is poised to undo much of what the left has accomplished. Imagine her as a role model for millions upon millions of young girls around the world. Imagine those young girls embracing life over death on the abortion issue – embracing true feminism over angry, abortion-centric feminism. They absolutely can't have that and will stop at nothing to destroy her. We expect liberal bias from the media and other leftist elites. But this time around, the bias is off the charts. It's finally exposed liberals for who they truly are, and we have Sarah Palin to thank for it.

The reality is that – except for those who, like Gloria Steinem, think the preamble to the Declaration of Independence should have read: "All women are endowed by mother earth with the inalienable right to eat their own young" – Sarah Palin has connected with average Americans. Especially with women. Most notably (oh glory day) with Hillary Clinton supporters.

And this WILL happen if McCain just lets her be herself.

So basically Gloria Steinhem’s idea is that you aren’t a “real” woman unless you have had an abortion.

I’m sure millions of women will be surprised to learn that. Many might be pro-choice by law, but just the same way this election has shown that race DOES matter, pro-choice isn’t really about “choice” at all.

I dont understand why women are not backing her. Obama, I believe, due to his early roots with Muslims don’t think women are equal or unable to lead. That is why I think he didnt pick Hillary.

And in other news....Governor Palin just booted a red high-heel right in Obama’s a$$ bringing up his terrorist connections to Ayers.

The MSM will be sorry they awakened the sleeping pit-bull!

Absolutely disgusting. The lowest level of Hades is a picnic in the sun compared to the Left. Their baseness knows no bounds. May God damn them to Hell.

I love it! You’re an angry feminist, how cute!

I considered myself a feminist, until I found out that it wasn’t really about wanting equal treatment for ALL women and about advancing ALL women, it was about equal treatment for the woman of a certain political ideology, who wanted to blame the white male and keep killing unborn babies sacrosanct.

Gov. Palin scares them, because many women think she does define feminism.

a maverick should be able to figure out how to be herself! I’m not willing to accept that they are holding her back.

I heard about this when it first happened. Looks to me like it was a major blow to the DBM and their constant accusations, investigations, and outright lies about the Palin family.

I heard about it awhile back but don’t have the stomach for those tv shows any more. DBM. Sorry, that one I don’t get. Dem/Da!n Biassed Media? I just thought of a vulgar play on words with my second word there.

"She opposes just about every issue that women support....[She] opposes everything most other women want and need."

Wow, what hubris. NOW: not about women but rather about the liberal agenda. period.

Liberals are all about "choice" UNTIL you choose differently than them.

Everything that Steinhem and the rest of the angry feminists wish they were, Palin already is.

Jealousy is such an ugly thing.

To: Aliska; All

In all honesty, the skit was NOT about Palin, but rather about the MSM — specifically the New York Times. They did not accuse Todd Palin of incest. The skit itself, as well as the supposed smear against Palin highlights how disgusting and ridiculous the reporters of the MSM are in their attacks against her...

The JOKE was on reporters who it seems take the most outlandish ideas, and try to push it forward without any proof at all as long as it fits their liberal agenda - as they said in the skit “well there’s no proof, but there’s no proof against it either”. Again, clearly an attack against the MSM and their incredibly lax standards.

[And, BTW, I am a survivor, myself, so I do NOT take lightly jokes about incest... I just wanted to put that out there before anyone accuses me of “not understanding” how serious this is.]

“Pro-choice” isn’t about keeping the “choice” [to kill your own baby] legal and available,

it’s about keeping any moral wrong from being assigned to it. It’s about justifying horrific acts already committed.

Leftist women see Palin’s very life as an

ACCUSATION and CONDEMNATION

of their own “choices”.

Thanks for your take on it; I gathered some of that when I read some of the comments. The clip I watched was too short to know what they were doing. I guess it's refreshing they would make fun of the media (of which they are a part).

Sorry about your past; that's got to be one of the most difficult things to overcome, don't know if you ever get completely over to the other side of it. Once your innocence is stolen from you, it's gone forever in this life.
