Mrs. Palin resigned from the governorship in 2009. Since then she has a political action committee, backed some candidates that have won elections and lost elections. And she has been a political commentator on the Fox News Channel and she has been writing books. Not one book has been political in nature.
In fact, many people on both sides have to to the conclusion that Mrs. Palin is yesterday's news.
Yet in the land of the lefty fever-swamps, Mrs. Palin still draws the ire of some.
One those people is the lowest-rated host on the free-falling lefty outlet, MSNBC. And that is British "reporter", Martin Bashir.
Last Friday, Mr. Bashir "discussed" a recent speech from Mrs. Palin. In that speech, as reported in the Des Moines Register, Mrs. Palin said the following:
"Our free stuff today is being paid for by taking money from our children and borrowing from China. When the money comes due-and this isn't racist, but it'll be like slavery when that note is due. We are going to be beholden to a foreign master."
OK, yes, I will not be the first one who says this, but I think rather than invoking race, I would have said what it is. ECONOMIC slavery. Which what it almost is now. While Red China has not called it's note in, they can do so at any time. And it would be a disaster. It is part of the United States wallowing in $16,000,000,000,000+ in debt. Not deficit, but debt.
Well, Mr. Bashir decided to be the word police and went on a three-minute tirade for Mrs. Palin to dare use the s-word.
Here is what Mr. Bashir spent three minutes on:
OK, as Mr. Bashir went through obscure and painful slave history, he had a reason for it.
Before I write the point, if you have not watched the video, you need to watch the whole thing and right now.
Hopefully you have watched it.
So again, he went through a great deal of slave history to end his rant with this:
"When Mrs. Palin invoked slavery, she doesn't just prove rank ignorance. She confirms that if anyone truly qualified for a dose of disciplne from Thomas Thistlewood, then she would be the outstanding candidate."
And what, what is that discipline?
Why uriniating and defecating in Mrs. Palin's mouth.
Of course, yes Mr. Bashir! Yeah, lets punish her because she said something that many a commentator and or even actual elected politicians have said about the crushing United States national debt? That to discuss the precarious nature of our economy and using the word slavery is now off limits in politically correct land. At least according to Mr. Bashir.
And again, if I were giving such a speech and or invoking the word slavery in this context, I would have said ECONOMIC slavery. But to lefty fever-swamp captains like Mr. Bashir, it still would not be cool.
And again, why does Mr. Bashir or anyone on the left care so much about Mrs. Palin if she is but a political has-been?
Why even when I shared this on Facebook, a nephew of mine who is one of the lefty Dems of the family, yet never comments on my shares or comments on current events had this reaction:
I for one would be pleased to see someone defecate in Palin's mouth. Hell, she might even enjoy it! Those self hating conservatives are usually the ones with the sickest fetishes. Just sayin... Furthermore, for all the sh** that's come out of her mouth over the years, it wouldn't be the worst thing to give her a taste of her own medicine so to speak!
And then he added this:
Of all the conservatives to defend mark, I would think she would be at the bottom of the barrel
Well, we continued a little back and forth but here is a comment my nephew made that was revealing:
Come on, does anyone still take Palin seriously anymore?
How revealing. And I ask again, why oh why do those on the lefty fever-swamps take her seriously?
Of course because deep down, they know that she does have a strong following and that is what they fear. That strong following will rise and want Mrs. Palin to run for office. Maybe senator from Alaska. Maybe even this time for president. And not one really knows what would happen in that scenario. Remember, Ronald Reagan made three runs for the White House before he was elected in 1980.
And Mrs. Palin is not the only conservative woman to raise the ire of the lefty fever-swamps.
Why last year I wrote this post in regards to the lefty fever-swamps and their hate, vicious hate, of conservative women. In the post I wrote about the conservative commentator S. E. Cupp, the governor of South Carolina, Nikki Haley, and of course Mrs. Palin.
The reason I believe the fever-swamp left hates Mrs. Palin, Miss, Cupp, Gov. Haley and any other conservative woman is because they are actually the successes of what feminists fought for so long. But they are not radical in the sense that they want to hack babies. They don't think it is a tragedy to be married. They do not think that it is drudgery to have children. They do what they do and are still their for their families.
Your not a real gal unless you advocate free birth control. Abortion on demand right up to the ninth month and of course also paid for by taxpayers. And your really not a real gal unless you have a hate on men that are not emasculated. Strong traditional men, go away.
And while yes, some of these conservative women are not married or with families, they support the concept of traditional family and marriage between one man and one woman. And of course we know that makes them not real women.
So even though Sarah Palin is not all that politically active, every now and then she will pontificate on current events. And she will pay a price for daring, daring to speak as a conservative woman in the United States today.
