Guest Post: The Ugly Treatment of Sarah Palin

September 4th, 2008 by Halli

From David Ripley, Idaho Chooses Life

The left’s reaction to Sarah Palin should remind our friends of another dark moment in recent history: the “electronic lynching” of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Because Palin and Thomas both represent fundamental challenges to liberal orthodoxy – one can only imagine that the attacks on Palin will become ever more frantic, ever more vicious, and ever more hypocritical.

Within moments of her announcement, the Obama campaign launched a classic sexist attack on Palin’s “lack of qualifications” for Vice-President. In doing so, they reminded voters of their treatment of Hillary Clinton during the primary campaign; they also scratched the scab of Obama’s infamous remarks about “angry small town America” while being feted by the elites of San Francisco.

To his credit, Sen. Obama moved quickly to squelch such dismissive treatment of a sitting governor. A couple days later, Obama made it clear that he would not stand for attacks on Palin’s children as part of his campaign. (It may be one of his finest moments). Unfortunately, his fellow-travelers will not be leashed.

Palin represents a substantial and direct threat to modern feminism. She is an intelligent, powerful woman who has thought her way free of liberal orthodoxy. She is a woman, of course, but a woman who has rejected the destructive principles of feminism. For that she cannot be forgiven. For that she must be destroyed.

Just as racist rhetoric and tactics have been used by the Left in their efforts to destroy conservative blacks like Justice Thomas and Secretary Rice – so sexism will be used by feminists to keep a powerful woman like Sarah Palin from becoming an American icon of a different value system.

If there is a silver lining to all this, it may be that Americans will get a hard lesson in the hypocrisy and deceits of the Left.

We urge our readers to be in serious prayer for Mrs. Palin and her family. They are certain to be tested in ways that will hard to believe.

    Really hypocrisy? What about the hypocrisy of the right. Just this past year Thayn and others from the legislature curtailed laws about all day kindergarten and regulating child day care because they thought it took mothers from the home. Well guess what being the governor of a sparsely populated state like AK keep the mother out of the home. What a quandary… And how would her family have been different if she was in the home?
