The Left's Lies About Sarah Palin

Instapundit linked to a post at Reclusive Leftist, a genuine feminist, who scolds the feminists and left for spreading 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.

But none of those things is true. None of them.
Emphasis added.

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?

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.
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.

You may be interested to hear the real reason she stepped down.

It sure sounds as credible as most of the stuff we're hearing from the talking heads.
She'd certainly been as good as the quarterback we had last year. She looks sturdy enough, too.
Bloviation alert. Finally read that whole post, and the uber comment thread (a really good one, IMHO - the fake characters we talked about during the election = awesome thought).

My response started here in your comments section. I moved it my my site because it grew up.
The left and the right lie about everything.
Great post. That liberal blogger you linked will now be on the left-wing hit-list, for high treason against the cause of destroying conservatives.
