Totalitarian feminists were very busy during the presidential campaign fighting for the Obama/Biden ticket and its implacable allies in the Muslim and illegal alien community who believe women are property. They were busiest writing viral poison e-mails filled with plausible lies about Gov. Palin, which, in my opinion, were motivated by her decision — her “choice,” if you will — to bring her Down syndrome fetus to term and lovingly embrace him, special needs and all, just the way he is.
Since the Down syndrome baby is the boogie fetus that pro-choice advocates use to scare fence-sitters into their camp, a mother and family of a Down syndrome child who would model how to love and raise him to his fullest potential in the public spotlight was threat-level DEFCON 1 for destruction. (Note: DEFCON 1 is the highest threat status; DEFCON 5 is the lowest where everything is safe.)
(I AM pro-choice, by the way, but not for the usual reasons, and I’ll get around to explaining another time.)
I think the deceitful viral poison anti-Palin e-mails from totalitarian feminists were responsible for the majority of the loss of support she had among women. As a lesbian, I got a LOT of those e-mails from my friends. It was one of them that launched me on the journey that led me to conservatism and this blog.
One, in particular, made me laugh. It purportedly came from playwright Eve Ensler, author of The Vagina Monologues. As it happens, Margaret and I saw her give one of her last performances of it in Washington, D.C., before she opened it up for others to perform. It was a moving and transformative experience and I feel enduring affection for Ms. Ensler as a result.
But it really was the limit that Ms. Ensler was hyperventilating that Sarah Palin was a terrible person who should not be a heartbeat away from the presidency because she hunts wolves from a helicopter.
(Isn’t the part of the story about how the wolves are eating caribou needed to keep humans from starving always left out of the story?)
My reaction was that the best thing to do to protect all those adorable wolves was to get Sarah Palin as far away from them as possible — by electing her as vice president. Also that other guy, McCain or something, as president.
So — save the wolves! Sarah Palin for president in 2012 (if not sooner)!
Update, 3/20/09: H/T HillBuzz for alerting me to the following video:
Update, 3/20/09: Memeorandum has the round-up today on Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin rejection of almost half of the $913 million in stimulus money offered to her state. This action is courageous, wise and prudent, as you will see if you watch the video clip above.
The funds Gov. Palin rejected effectively would have planted time bombs and landmines in Alaska’s budget by starting programs that would only have federal money for a couple of years, gotten people addicted to the programs and then left the state in the unenviable position of either having to stop the programs or raise state taxes and fees to fund them, thus crippling the state’s economy.
Unlike the foolish governors who took the bait of Obama’s “stimulus” money and swallowed it hook, line and sinker, Gov. Palin made the best of a bad program and kept the people of Alaska off the hook for disastrous future expenses. Palin for president in 2012 (or sooner)!
Update, 3/31/09: The carefully coordinated campaign by Democrats to demolish Rush Limbaugh after his stirring speech at CPAC was an epic FAIL that resulted in increased ratings for Rush. So now Gateway Pundit reports the Democrats have targeted Sarah Palin for destruction using Saul Alinsky’s Rule 12: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.) So now is the time to rally to Sarah Palin and show all they can do is make her more popular than ever and ready for the presidency in 2012!
