The Wilding of Sarah Palin
American Thinker ^ | 11/24/09 | Robin of Berkeley

Posted on 03/14/2010 9:16:27 PM PDT by Eterna1Soldier

Then along came Sarah, and the attacks became particularly heinous. And I realized something even more chilling about the Left. Leftists not only sacrifice and disrespect women, but it's far worse: many are perpetuators.

The Left's behavior towards Palin is not politics as usual. By their laser-focus on her body and her sexuality, leftists are defiling her.

They are wilding her. And they do this with the full knowledge and complicity of the White House.

The Left has declared war on Palin because she threatens their existence. Liberals need women dependent and scared so that women, like blacks, will vote Democrat.

A very perceptive article. This statement at the end is the best comment about Sarah Palin I have read:

"In these dark times, with spiritually bankrupt people at the helm, thank God we have bright lights like Sarah Palin to illuminate the darkness."

I read the article. Robin Berkely needs to make this speech at the 2012 GOP Convention for Sarah Palin.

Wonder if they'll change their tune when Sarah Palin sees the Potomac from her House?

Before the election I wrote this reply which I think anticipates much of the authors comments respecting the left's visceral reaction Sarah Palin:

The Billy Budd effect. If you recall your Melville, you will know that Billy Budd was a figure of good whose very presence antagonized the first mate who persecuted Billy Budd unmercifully. The mate was driven to do this unconsciously because the mate was a figure of evil. The mate had his demons. So it is with the left in America today, they are driven to a visceral hatred of Sarah Palin because she is the 21st century figure of Billy Budd. Sarah Palin committed an unforgivable affront, she knowingly carried a Mongoloid to term. This cannot be forgiven. This is the ultimate reproach to the entire belief system of the left. Sarah Palin need not even open her mouth and she is hated with a cold and unremitting fury.

This is why I said that the left hates Sarah Palin not for what she says or how she appears on television but for who she is. The left must react as evil always reacts in the presence of good. Like the second mate, they must persecute Sarah Palin and they do not even know why.

But Sarah Palin ought to know why if she is going to be able to cope with a brick bats that will come her way. She must know that she can never charm these people. The more she tries the more they will hate her. She must focus on her target, the conservative base which she will keep so long as she is faithful and the independent middle which is persuadable if she can appear to be a normal and a wholesome person.

Just so. Evil hates and fears the Good. Rarely do we get to see this played out publicly in such unmitigated form.

The American Left has a long history of defiling people to control and break them.

Of course they are doing this to Sarah Palin. They got the go-ahead from the Marxist-in-Chief, Obama, when he said "If you put lipstick on a pig, it's still a pig." That shocking statement showed me what a pig Obama is. And by saying it, he declared open season on Palin.

Obama is just a nasty thug. He should go back to Chicago where he belongs.

The LEFT has been and still is the epitome of racism and chauvinism. They don the attire of sheep while baring the fangs of wolves.... their true persona.

It’s a shame Robin isn’t a contributor on FOX News. If she can articulate the spoken word as well as the words she has written, she would be pure dynamite.

It is, of course, Palin's unapologetic motherhood that fuels the leftist fire.

That's why I see her legacy as the Mother of our Country, in balance with the Father of our Country, George Washington.

I always enjoy reading Robin’s columns as she is a recovering liberal who lives/works (as a psychotherapist) in Berkley and has a great insight into the insane/evil minds of liberals.

The insight about how the attacks are meant to "emasculate conservative men" is particularly prescient and I agree. It is important to have "conservatives" like Will and Brooks join in on the wilding as it both degrades her and the men doing it.

By sitting idly while the left savages her, we men are silently losing a large part of our heritage and manhood. I never understood why the attacks on her got such a visceral and savage overreaction from me until now. I am trying to protect her the same way that I would protect my wife or my mother.

And I am happy and proud to continue to do that.

These "progressives" are so alienated from the sacred that they perceive nothing as sacred. And they will destroy anyone whose goodness shines a mirror on their pathology. The spiritually barren must annihilate the vital and the fertile.

This has been going on for years. The Left can't stand anyone with any moral values.

I have seen it over the years, going back to Anita Bryant and orange juice commercials. Circa 60's.

WOW!!! What an incredible article! Thanks for posting this.

This author pulls no punches at all -- just downright savages the Left for their frankly, y'know, pornographic and dehumanizing attacks on Sarah Palin. Really, really strong writing by this lady.

Now I have to bookmark this article, so that I can show it to Mrs. Christian_Capitalist (who adores Governor Palin, probably even moreso than I do) later today.

Great post.

You folks have to see this great article. Powerful writing.
You don't even have to necessarily agree with Sarah Palin on every last little policy detail, to admire this author's forthright defense of her person, her faith, and her philosophy.

At least, that's what I think.

“Fish is back on the menu boys”

Wonder how the fishing is in the Potomac, or Chesapeake Bay, or if there is a fishing spot at Camp David. Certainly she can't give it up totally between 2012-2020.

One of the best prospects of Sarah Palin as president will be the media enduring Palin's midwinter visits back to her home state of Alaska. They'll be pining for Crawford in no time. And who knows, the wolves are hungry that time of year and anti-gun journalists are a lot easier and safer to catch than moose.

Thanks for the ping, CC. Looking forward to reading it.

My husband reasons that since Palin is a wife and mother, since she's a conservative, since she's a Christian, since she's a woman, since she's articulate and empathetic, and since she let her hair grow long, she will be the next President.

Although I think he may be underestimating the power of ridicule via SNL, I wouldn't be too unhappy if he were right.

Sarah, my husband thinks you have a lock on being the next Margaret Thatcher, but he says you should lose the glasses.

Consider it.

The people will know better than believe this type, of tripe. BRED IN THE BONE PROGHRESSIVE/LIBERALS fall for anything their side tells them. They are truly non thinking and brainwashed. It is a religious fervor that they exhibit.

The independents next elections coming. I pray it is so and do actually believe it.

Sarah is great.

Sarah Palin need not even open her mouth and she is hated with a cold and unremitting fury.

That is exactly right. She committed the unpardonable sin of knowingly giving birth to an "imperfect" human being, thereby disregarding Margaret Sanger and the rest of the eugenic nazis who still populate this earth.

This is why I said that the left hates Sarah Palin not for what she says or how she appears on television but for who she is. The left must react as evil always reacts in the presence of good. Like the second mate, they must persecute Sarah Palin and they do not even know why.

Having once fancied myself as a "liberal" (in my brain-dead college days) I know exactly what liberals think of her. In this day of equivocation and licentiousness, they despise her for telling someone their actions are immoral.

But Sarah Palin ought to know why if she is going to be able to cope with a brick bats that will come her way. She must know that she can never charm these people. The more she tries the more they will hate her. She must focus on her target, the conservative base which she will keep so long as she is faithful and the independent middle which is persuadable if she can appear to be a normal and a wholesome person.

I agree. May Tina Fey's hair fall out a few months before the election (and then grow back in afterwards.)

“The Left has declared war on Palin because she threatens their existence. Liberals need women dependent and scared so that women, like blacks, will vote Democrat.

A strong, self-sufficient woman, Palin eschews liberal protection. Drop her off in the Alaskan bush and she'll survive just fine, thank you very much. Palin doesn't need or want anything from liberals — not hate crimes legislation that coddles her, and not abortion, which she abhors.

Palin is a woman of deep and abiding faith. She takes no marching orders from messiah-like wannabes like Obama”.

Spot on, and if anyone still wonders why Mrs. Palin is making the left crazy, your answer is right there.
