Why the Left Hates Sarah Palin
FrontPage Magazine ^ | January 18, 2011 | Evan Sayet

Posted on 01/18/2011 12:48:43 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

It just happened again.

I spend a fair amount of time at my local coffee shop. I like to do my writing outside and, besides, it gives me an opportunity to try and initiate political conversations with the people who pass by, my hope always being to begin to enlighten them as to what conservative really believe (and not just what the Leftist media tells them.)

Today the conversation turned to Sarah Palin and my new acquaintance blurted out “Oh I hate her.” Not yet knowing my politics, I’m sure that, being her in Los Angeles she expected to hear back what you usually hear back in Los Angeles, “Yeah, I hate her, too.” Instead, I asked her why.

At this point I could have predicted her response because it’s the same response you get from Liberals no matter who on the right you’re talking about, “Because she’s stupid.” I replied: “Being stupid is no reason to hate someone, but tell me, which one of her policies do you disagree with?” I’m sure any Right Thinking person reading this has already guessed her response, “All of them!”

I continued to push. “Well, then, if it’s all of them, it should be easy for you to name one.” Her reply? “They’re too many to list.”

“So don’t list them, just give me one,” I said.

This went on for a while until my new friend finally admitted she didn’t know any of Ms. Palin’s policies. Before she ran off – Democrats always run off when asked to provide facts behind their hatred for Republicans – I looked her in the eye and said, “If you don’t know any of her policies perhaps you should look into them.” She promised she would. She won’t. If there are two things you can count on with Democrats, they are filled with hate and empty of facts.

But it got me to thinking. Given that these people don’t know any of Ms. Palin’s political positions, what is it about her that they hate? It has to be her life story. Now, to all decent people, Ms. Palin’s life story could not be more laudable. She married her high school sweetheart to whom she remains married and apparently still in love. In the harshest of climes, she and Todd started a small business which, apparently, they ran well enough to purchase a home and raise a family. Despite the long hours required to run a family business and raise children, when Ms. Palin saw that the public schools were not doing as well as they might in educating her children, she joined the local PTA and, apparently was so effective in doing so that the people who knew her best – and in small towns like Wasilla there are very few secrets – elected her to be their mayor.

Apparently, Ms. Palin was so effective in that job that the mayors of the other small towns and big cities elected her president of the Alaska Conference of Mayors. After a highly successful stint as chairman of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission she ran an uphill battle against an entrenched Republican governor and was elected to the top position, Governor, of the largest state in the nation. She did that job so well that her approval ratings – despite having ruffled the feathers of the leading political family in Alaska – bordered on 80 percent.

As Ms. Palin’s political horizons continued to grow, she found out she was pregnant with her fourth child, a baby with Downs Syndrome. Despite knowing in advance that this child would require even more attention and care than other kids, Ms. Palin opted to give her child – Trig – life.

So, given that those who hate – hate!!! – Ms. Palin know nothing more than these facts about her, what is it about Ms. Palin’s life story that generates this blind loathing? The answer is that, at every turn, Ms. Palin’s story debunks the myths of victimization and self-centeredness that is at the heart of the Modern Liberal ideology.

First, Ms. Palin is married with children. The Democrat Party’s treasured storyline is that women with children – especially those who take care of them themselves – are oppressed, victimized and doomed to a life without personal fulfillment. Ms. Palin’s life proves them wrong and the Democrats hate her for this. If Ms. Palin were a Democrat she would have offed the last child before he was born so that she could have more “me” time to pursue her own wants and pleasures. There is clearly something very “wrong” with this woman who allowed her “special needs” child to live. They hate her for that.

One of the most obvious demographic differences between the Left and the Right is that people without children – those too self-centered and jealous of other’s stealing “their” attention, angry and hate-filled “feminists,” radical homosexuals and school children too young to have started a family are just about guaranteed to pull the lever for anyone with a “D” next to their names. Those married with children are just as assured to pull the lever for someone from the right.

And Sarah Palin ran a small business. Democrats don’t run businesses. In fact, Democrats don’t do anything. If you eliminated from the voting roll everyone who did nothing other than talk – the academic, the newscaster, the actor, the politician – and those who game the system, collecting welfare and years of unemployment benefits and “workman’s compensation” and food stamps, how many people would be left voting Democrat?

Let’s put it this way, if having had a job – having done something that required either physical labor or risking one’s own money if they were wrong – were a prerequisite to work in the White House, Barack Obama would have to fire 94 percent of his top advisors. That’s a real number. 94 percent of Obama’s top advisors have never done anything like run a small store, paint a bridge, wire a house for electricity or anything else other flap their lips.

This is the genesis of the notion that Palin is “stupid.” Liberals are convinced that there’s something “the matter” with people who have jobs. This is what they mean by “What’s The Matter with Kansas,” Kansas being a place where people work – Hollywood, Cambridge Massachusetts, the TV studios in Manhattan are places were people talk. To the Liberal, anyone who has a job must be stupid, after all, not everyone is as good a talker as they are, but surely everyone can find one excuse or another to sit at home and collect welfare.

In fact, to the Modern Liberal, anyone who has a job is not just stupid, he (or she) is dangerous. These people “cling” to their guns and their religion because they toil for their reward. These people are constantly on the verge of violence, whether it’s an attack like the one they caused in Tucson (according to the Leftist script) or just by going home and beating their children. Consider the lyrics of “the working man’s troubadour” Bruce Springsteen:

“Early in the morning/factory whistle blows Man rises from bed and puts on his clothes. Man takes his lunch, walks out in the morning line That’s the work, the workin’, that’s the workin’ life.”

“End of the day/Factory whistle cries Man walks through them gates with death in their eyes. And you just better believe, boy, somebody’s gonna get it tonight. (Why?) Cause that’s the work, the workin’ that’s that workin’ life!

Sarah Palin is stupid and dangerous because, well, to those who have made their millions by doing nothing other than talking, that’s the work, the workin’ that’s the workin’ life. Just in case you think that’s just one example of Springsteen’s take on anyone who has a job, consider the horrors of his “daddy” who “worked his whole life, for nothing but the pain.” In this song, “Adam Raised a Cain,” daddy, of course, beats his children, “Now he walks these empty rooms searching for something to blame.” And, in fact, it gets worse because, clearly a child who is beaten is going to continue that cycle of violence and beat his child (“You inherit the sins/you inherit the flames”) so, even to the most sympathetic Leftist like Springsteen, not one, not two but three generations are destroyed all because “daddy” had to go to work.

And they hate Sarah Palin because she joined the PTA and made things better. No, no, that’s not supposed to happen. Schools (read the Teachers Union) needs more money, only more money will solve the problems in the schools. Sarah Palin must be destroyed!

And, finally, they hate Sarah Palin because she was a successful mayor and governor. The Democrat Party narrative is that the American people are too stupid to successfully govern themselves and need Harvard and Yale elitists to dictate to them how they should live their lives. If a graduate of the University of Idaho can successfully run the biggest state in the union then so can a kid who graduated from Texas A & M or even a kid with a degree from Eureka College.

If Democrats disagreed with Ms. Palin on the issues that would be one thing. But they don’t merely “disagree” with her, the hate her and they hate her without caring one whit where she stands on the issues, they hate her because she is living proof that everything about the Democrat Party narrative is a lie and for this reason she cannot be allowed to be liked because if Democrats liked her, they might listen to her policies.

Evan comes to the truth of this essay. In many posts I've put it in different ways always coming to the same conclusion:

She is the living breathing embodiment of all things good in the conservative tradition. Her baby is a living reproach to the sophistry of a man who cannot discuss when life begins in the context of abortion and who listens to testimony by a nurse describing how she held a dying post abortion baby in her arms without a single syllable apparently penetrating to his soul. When his sordid history in this affair was investigated, he lied.

................

The Palin selection means that the McCain ticket screams integrity at the voter. The issue is no longer experience but character. I say again: Sarah Palin is not selected because of her experience or in spite of the lies that her experience is insufficient, rather she was selected for what her experience reveals about her character.

..............................

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.

The left hates, it’s what they do. My bigger problem is with the establishment GOPers who are their enablers. They are more than content to let the lefts’ hatred grow. When it appears to them that the hatred is subsiding a bit, here comes the GOP pretenders to throw a bit of fuel on the fire. Of course, they do it with a bit of “concern” for Palin but they secretly love the piling on by the left.

Untrue. Plenty of business owners are Democrat though under Obunghole they are changing to Republican...hopefully

Since the Tucson shooting, it has become apparent that the Left is no longer merely a rag-tag crowd of socialists and Marxists. Under Obama's tutelage and guidance, it has coalesced into a single organism that acts and speaks as a single unit, responding at will to external stimuli.

This should come as no real surprise since Obama has incubated and nurtured this cult--a narcissistic cult to be precise--since his campaign began. This was the goal of all his public preening, the Berlin speech, the Pergamon Altar setting in Denver, and the messianic iconography.

And now this group has finally taken on a life of its own. It members have joined the collective...they have given their minds and consciences over to Obama and the group. They are now psychologically dependent on Obama and the group. And they now have a secure sense of belonging, their individual insecurities and frailties and failures replaced with a sense of power and self-adoration. They are Obama!

And like Obama--narcissist that he is--they attack any and all threats to the group and its self-image. It matters not whether their actions/attacks are rational or moral or accurate...the collective has no mind, the collective has no conscience.

Since Sarah is one of the public faces of reality to this Cult of Obama, she is an existential threat to the group and must be destroyed. To the group, all criticism of the group and its leader, all non-group opinions and ideas, all threats must be neutralized.

Why the Left Hates Sarah Palin: Some of the same reasons many of the same people similarly hate George W. Bush, the inference of a possibly-unearned boost to a position of national prominence and a frequent-enough display of an inner (over?)confident self-assurance that, to many, seems to border quite closely on smugness?

It’s pretty close to it. Sarah was the reason my wife and I voted R in ‘08. It certainly wasn’t McCain. Character matters. She has it. He didn’t/doesn’t, any more than the current Pres. I’d say that the fact that she doesn’t, in her life, follow or fill any of the left’s precepts not only explains a lot of the left’s hatred, but likewise elevates the quality of service she’s likely to give. An honorable person, not a self-serving one. And, to the left’s utter dismay, a moral one.

Socialism is nothing but criticism and second guessing of those who actually do things. 

Theodore Roosevelt's famous speech in Paris:

There is no more unhealthy being, no man less worthy of respect, than he who either really holds, or feigns to hold, an attitude of sneering disbelief toward all that is great and lofty, whether in achievement or in that noble effort which, even if it fails, comes to second achievement. A cynical habit of thought and speech, a readiness to criticise work which the critic himself never tries to perform, an intellectual aloofness which will not accept contact with life's realities - all these are marks, not as the possessor would fain to think, of superiority but of weakness. They mark the men unfit to bear their part painfully in the stern strife of living, who seek, in the affection of contempt for the achievements of others, to hide from others and from themselves in their own weakness. The rôle is easy; there is none easier, save only the rôle of the man who sneers alike at both criticism and performance.

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

The RINO wing of what used to be our party appreciates the reasoning of one passage in scripture far more than they appreciate integrity and the whole message of the Bible: "it is expedient for us, that one should die for the people, and that the whole nation (party) perish not".

"..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."

Exactly. bttt

"..Leftists always hate, but imagine that the hate is coming from outside themselves. They are like children. When someone angers them, they think that the someone is as angry as they are. So it's also a kind of narcissism. Think of Skippy Gates -- he assumes that white people hate him just because he hates white people."

Why is There Stupidity?

"..Why is there stupidity? ....Easy: because there is intelligence. Because there is intelligence, there is stupidity in all its varieties, including the intelligent stupidity of Marxism, socialism, deconstruction, existentialism, atheism, metaphysical Darwinism, radical feminism, climate changerism, you name it. Truth is one. Stupidity is legion.

"Obviously, stupidity is a "privative phenomenon." Truth is what is, while error is what is missing, or what is disproportionately overemphasized, or what has no real possibility of ever being there at all. Therefore, while error can and will be present in our approach to truth, as Schuon writes, it cannot be derived from intelligence as such. Rather, since we are relative beings, our intelligence operates amidst other factors -- hopes, fears, dreams, wishes, resentments.

"When intelligence goes astray, it is due either to the passions or the will; indeed, this is why one cannot detach the question of stupidity from that of sin, for sin is a kind of stupidity, while stupidity (as opposed to ignorance) is definitely a kind of sin. More problematically, there is unconscious passion and unconscious willfulness..."

I believe this explains most of the hatred. She infuriates the left because she doesnt just talk the talk on her convictions about life. She walks the walk.

Palin got the chance to introduce herself to America in her vice-presidential candidate acceptance speech before the media had prejudiced people against her. Therefore, they had a lot of ground to make up. And they still do. And they’re still trying.

What you wrote describes the Nazi cult back in 1930s Germany. Hitler wrote and spoke of his hatred of rationality. He spoke that his followers must “think in blood” - emotionally. From this came the “Blut und Boden” cult (Blood and Soil). We are seeing the rebirth of fascism in the democrat party.

It’s obvious to me and my reading of history that two groups of people - one preferring free enterprise and liberty and the other wanting to destroy freedom and enslave the other - cannot and will not live together. This fascist cult must be destroyed. By whatever means necessary.

That’s right. Truth and light in this world arouse the snarls of liars and darkness. She does indeed walk the walk and what gives her such high value is that she verbally articulates it, also. Theory AND practice: what a dynamite combination! Makes Liberals’ heads explode.

Yep...and I can't for the life of me figure out how Obama knew how to first bring the media under his control so that they would be willing participants in the establishment of his cult of personality.

I can understand how liberal individuals would fall prey to his incessant campaign to portray himself as a messiah, but how did Obama so easily hypnotize the professional media. Yes, they were already Liberal...but it seems they drank a double dose of the Kool-Aid.

BTW, the shibboleth I rely on to identify those people who are in the Obama cult is something you mentioned about 1930's Germany. Cult members use language in defense of Obama that is full of emotion, character assassination, non sequiturs, and irrational conclusions...and is completely devoid of logic, empiricism, and rational thought.

I have friends and friends of friends who are under his sway and have noticed that they cannot be reasoned with. Whatever techniques of mind control Obama is using, he has a powerful hold over his cult members.

My question is this, "how, where, or from whom did he come by this knowledge and practice of cult development?" Before becoming President, he was an absolute nobody.

I think I can narrow it down some more.

Most libs could "forgive" (or ignore) most of that in other circumstances. Being married with children for instance. Not unheard of among liberals.

The one thing they will never forgive is her not aborting her Down's syndrome child.

So, who on the left can speak extemporaneously as well as Sarah?

For many lib women there is only one issue: abortion. If you are for unrestricted abortion, they will forgive many other positions with which they don’t agree with you . If your are pro-life, they simply will not forgive you. It is probably no understatement to say that the vast majority of women in the media are pro-abortion. They will never give women like Sarah Palin a chance.

The left hates, it’s what they do. My bigger problem is with the establishment GOPers who are their enablers. They are more than content to let the lefts’ hatred grow.


The urban colloquialism for enabler is a "co-signer" and for a century now these Rino co-signers have enabled the libtard and demomcrats to spend us into oblivion. You think TARP would have pass if Bush found the stones to veto it? In fact, I would surmise that the 2006 election which brought the witch pelousy to power would have never happened.

Rinos looking to save their own @$$es and sincures always prefer dealing with demoncraps...and the 2010 elections prove it beyond the shadow of a doubt.

They not only hate her, since the primaries in 2008 they have been stalking her in an attempt to end her both politically and maybe in life as well. INSANE!

Yep, he definitely used NLP techniques in his speeches. But the use of NLP is not uncommon by businesses (in marketing) and ad agencies...yet none have seen the kind of cult building success we see with Obama.

He seems to have taken Milton Erickson's basic NLP principles to a whole new level. Perhaps his Kenyan grannie gave him a voodoo curse to blend into the mix.;-)

The people that control the cameras and microphones were in cahoots with him.
