The Left's Lies About Sarah Palin
Of course, the first answer you’ll get if you ask feminists why they hate Sarah Palin is that “it’s because she ____” — and then fill in the blank with the lie of choice: made rape victims pay for their own kits, is against contraception or sex ed, believes in abstinence-only, thinks the dinosaurs were here 4000 years ago, doesn’t believe in global warming, doesn’t believe in evolution, is stupid and can’t read, etc., etc., etc., etc.Emphasis added.
But none of those things is true. None of them.
Some of the final thoughts in the same post.
So: are we back to Obama after all? Is this a transference thing? Are people subconsciously frustrated by the fact that Obama is an empty suit, and are they transferring that rage to Palin?Intriguing and honest insights from a member of the left. Amongst other things, this reminds me of one of Sean Hannity's repeated themes, the left can't win in the arena of ideas, so they have to tell lies.
As you see, I don’t have the answers.
Awhile ago I came up with what I think is the most plausible explanation yet when I said:
Sarah Palin is the Designated Hate Receptacle for self-described feminists. They know they’re not supposed to hate other women, but they do anyway because their feminism is not quite as strong as their patriarchal brainwashing. Sarah Palin is the culture’s designated Hate Receptacle.
I’m not entirely satisfied with that, but it’s the best I can come up with. If we add to that the subconscious Obama resentment-transference, perhaps on a kind of sliding rheostat thing, we may be getting close to a solution.
It sure sounds as credible as most of the stuff we're hearing from the talking heads.
My response started here in your comments section. I moved it my my site because it grew up.
