Skip to comments.Sarah Palin: Critics are "Lying About a Sister" (Sister?)
Posted on 08/18/2010 1:57:59 PM PDT by pissant
Sarah Palin has responded to a video from the pro-abortion rights group EMILY's List in which women dressed in bear costumes discuss how their "cubs" are threatened by the agenda of Palin and the candidates she supports.
In a post on Facebook lauding the 90th anniversary of women's suffrage - and offering a new round of endorsements of Republican candidates - Palin complains that "I've recently come under attack for speaking up for sisters who seek to serve in public office."
"The sad part is that the attack comes from other sisters who happen to be on the other side of an issue that has been of great importance to American women from the time of our feminist foremothers, Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, down to today. I'm speaking of the issue of life," she writes.
Palin then offers "advice" to "our sisters who like to throw stones at those of us who respectfully disagree with them on this issue." She writes that such women "refuse to even countenance the fact that some of us can call ourselves feminists and disagree with those who claim the mantle of 'real feminists.'"

Sad that you’re rooting for the pro-aborts, isn’t it?
No, I just find it hilarious that she talks “sister”. Reminds me of Obama talking ‘brotha’ when he’s down south.
Pistols at 100 paces. My money is on Sarah!
I would applaud that situation. My $$ is on Sarah too.
I believe that she is using that term to see what the reaction will be.
It’s called using their own rhetoric against them. A very effective tactic.
The feminist left uses the term sister to make people stop thinking about issues. “We may disagree, but we’re sisters, so you need to support me.”
Palin is pointing out that if they are going to play that game, then it should run both ways.
keep your friends close and your enemies closer.
Lame! Lame! Lame!
Mama Rats could never be confused with Mama Grizzles.
“First, ladies, it’s hard to take a critic seriously when they lecture you wearing a bear suit,” she continues. “So, it’s difficult for me to drum up much outrage at this latest ad. But, really, lying about a sister while wearing an Ewok outfit is no way to honor our foremothers on the eve of the 90th anniversary of their victory.”
They brought a knife to a gunfight.
These "bears" are much more a threat to their cubs than Sarah could ever be. Last stats I saw indicated that one in three babies is aborted. Doubtful any of these "bears" would carry any of their "cubs" to term.
Yeah, except that she’s been using it for at least a year now.
Then they are finally noticing that she is doing it.
In case you missed the first one.
Exacxtly, the lefty-bears destroy their own.
‘ewok outfit’ made me chortle out loud. Palin is awesome.
That was before her brow lift makeover
Leftists think that dressing up in costumes and playing the clown is an effective political statement. See Code Pink.
I wonder how this tactic eluded Alinsky?
Nothin like calling liberal “feminazis” on their own Hypocrisy.
Once again, you side with pro-abortionists to feed your cult like obsession with Palin... that is twice in one hour.
Where did I say the leftwing feminazis are correct? Where have I said abortion is good, necessary, or anything but an unmitigated evil?
I never noticed.
That is one of the worst political commercials I have ever seen.........Not only is it one lie from start to finish, but it is incredibly stupid and painful to watch.
Ghetto-speak annoys me.
Lying? A moose bit her sister? What?
From the article:
"But, that aside, I'd love to know where you got those get-ups," she writes. "Halloween is just around the corner, and Piper and Trig would look adorable as little grizzly bears."
I find it interesting that Sarah steals the feminist title from those who think that a pro life woman cannot possible be pure enough enough to be a "feminist". Yet here is this woman who has has done ten times more than any one of them to crash through glass ceilings.
And yes fellas to some degree all women are sisters. We all share certain biological milestones that take quite a toll on our bodies and souls. Sarah is smart enough to draw upon that shared experience, "sisterhood" without compromising her core beliefs. Meanwhile RINOs in the GOP throw their conservative principles onto the pyre of the Big f'ing tent approach.
Sarah’s chief antagonist on this site won’t be watching Greta. Wednesday is ‘trim the wife’s mustache night’.
I don't think it's the same. When 0bama uses 'brother', he only refers to black male. So, he mixes two categories into one. When Palin uses 'sister', she refers to her fellow female, regardless the race, etc. Her use of 'sisters' here is very relevant as she is addressing the feminazi females.
Or those ignorant military men who call each other brothers.
Ever hear of Brothers in Arms? What do these feminists have in common other than the same chromosomes?
I know the term and I am a veteran. I was pointing out, once again, the stupidity of your post.
That is such a GREAT way to respond to this jerk.
Keep it up!
I despise feminism. It’s as stupid as masculinism.
Well, maybe. And maybe it’s stupider. :)
I don’t recall my old Fredhead adversaries telling me how much I hated bald old men. ROFL!
Fred. He broke my heart.
I gotta hand it to ya...you know how to get a thread cookin...find a soft spot and dig in. Seems to work for ya every time. So many always willing to play a suckers game.
On a similar note, I use the term "social justice" to mean 2nd Amendment issues, pro-life and other issues that conservatives care about. I will hijack their language and define it my own way. BTW, take a look at how the Left is redefining our language and indoctrinating our children with it. Gov. Palin has the right idea in what she's doing.
I get what your after. I’m more from the school of rejecting their terminology altogether. Like Newt’s asinine attempt to go green with the GOP. I say shove the green right up their arses, right along with al gore.
Sometimes it makes sense to reel them in with their terminology and then smack 'em upside the head with what you really mean.
Palin on her way to help Angle
Read the last paragraph in that article and share with the rest of the Palinoia Posse. Yes, he’s the Publisher of that paper.
That’s a mighty brave endorsement -——after the primary.
I could give a shite about feminism Palin or not.
Didn’t read the last paragraph or did it give you a sour stomach?
Fwiw, I think it's always sour.
I never heard of the guy, and I’m supposed to be impressed?
