The Left Hate Palin Because She's Not a Victim

Rate this post

Have you wondered why liberals hate Sarah Palin with a passion? I have a quick answer:

Simple. It’s because Sarah Palin is not a victim.

Unlike prominent liberal women, Palin had never divulged that:

  • She had been abused (sexually, physically, or emotionally) by any man, as Oprah had; or that
  • She had been on public assistance welfare, as Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling had (Rowling’s first marriage fell apart and she found herself pregnant and destitute); or that
  • She got an abortion, as feminist icon Gloria Steinem and countless feminists had; or that
  • She had an eating disorder (anorexia or bulimia), as Jane Fonda had; or that
  • She’s gone New Age, which means she’s alienated from traditional religions, which of course means Christianity; which in turn means that she’d been “hurt” in some sense by the Christian church; or….

Instead of being the victim, Sarah Palin:

  • Loves her parents, even her dad – GASP – a male!
  • Has a good marriage to a supportive hunky man — her first and only marriage!
  • Never aborted any of her children but carried Trig to term even though she knew he has Downs syndrome.
  • Is a vocal Christian who regularly makes reference to the dreaded G-word.
  • Most important of all, Sarah Palin had never ever cried in public, about anything. Even when she is the target of hatred, mockery, and death threats.

Stay strong, Sarah!

Why the Left Hates Sarah Palin

By Evan Sayet – Front Page – Jan 17, 2011

It just happened again.
I spend a fair amount of time at my local coffee shop.  I like to do my writing outside and, besides, it gives me an opportunity to try and initiate political conversations with the people who pass by — my hope always being to begin to enlighten them as to what conservatives really believe (and not just what the leftist media tells them.)
Today, the conversation turned to Sarah Palin and my latest acquaintance blurted out: “Oh I hate her.”  Since she did not yet know my politics, and since we were in Los Angeles, it is clear that she expected to hear back what you usually hear back in this city: “Yeah, I hate her, too.”  Instead, I asked her why.
At this point I could have predicted her response because it’s the same response you get from liberals no matter who on the Right you’re talking about: “Because she’s stupid.”  I replied: “Being stupid is no reason to hate someone, but tell me, which one of her policies do you disagree with?”  It wasn’t hard to predict her response: “All of them!”
I continued to push.  “Well, then, if it’s all of them, it should be easy for you to name one.”  Her reply?  “They’re too many to list.”
“So don’t list them, just give me one,” I said.
This went on for awhile until my new acquaintance finally admitted that she didn’t know any of Ms. Palin’s policies.  Before she ran off – Democrats always run off when asked to provide facts to justify their hatred for Republicans – I looked her in the eyes and said, “If you don’t know any of her policies, perhaps you should look into them.”  She promised she would.  She won’t.  If there are two things you can count on with Democrats, they are filled with hate and empty of facts.
But it got me to thinking.  Given that these people don’t know any of Ms. Palin’s political positions, what is it about her that they hate?  It has to be her life story.  Now, to all decent people, Ms. Palin’s life story could not be more laudable.  She married her high school sweetheart to whom she remains married and with whom she is apparently still in love.  In the harshest of climes, she and Todd started a small business which, apparently, they ran well enough to purchase a home and raise a family.  Despite the long hours required to run a family business and raise children, when Ms. Palin saw that the public schools were not doing a good job in educating her children, she joined the local PTA and was so effective there that the people who knew her best – and in small towns like Wasilla there are very few secrets – elected her to be their mayor.
Apparently, Ms. Palin was so effective in that job that the mayors of the other small towns and big cities elected her president of the Alaska Conference of Mayors.  After a highly successful stint as chairman of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, she ran an uphill battle against an entrenched Republican governor and was elected to the top position, Governor, of the largest state in the nation.  She did that job so well that her approval ratings – despite having ruffled the feathers of the leading political family in Alaska – bordered on 80 percent.
As Ms. Palin’s political horizons continued to grow, she found out she was pregnant with her fourth child, a baby with Downs Syndrome.  Despite knowing in advance that this child would require even more attention and care than other kids, Ms. Palin opted to give her child – Trig – life.
So, given that those who hate – hate!!! – Ms. Palin know nothing more than these facts about her, what is it about Ms. Palin’s life story that generates this blind loathing?  The answer is that, at every turn, Ms. Palin’s story debunks the myths of victimization and self-centeredness that is at the heart of the modern liberal ideology.
First, Ms. Palin is married with children.  The Democrat Party’s treasured storyline is that women with children – especially those who take care of them themselves – are oppressed, victimized and doomed to a life without personal fulfillment.  Ms. Palin’s life proves them wrong and the Democrats hate her for this.  If Ms. Palin were a Democrat she would have offed the last child before he was born so that she could have more “me” time to pursue her own wants and pleasures.  There is clearly something very “wrong” with this woman who allowed her “special needs” child to live.  They hate her for that.
One of the most obvious demographic differences between the Left and the Right is that people without children – those too self-centered and jealous of others stealing “their” attention, angry and hate-filled “feminists,” radical homosexuals and school children too young to have started a family — are just about guaranteed to pull the lever for anyone with a “D” next to their names.  Those married with children are just as assured to pull the lever for someone from the Right.
And Sarah Palin ran a small business.  Democrats don’t run businesses.  In fact, Democrats don’t do anything.  If you eliminated from the voting roll everyone who did nothing other than talk – the academic, the newscaster, the actor, the politician – and those who game the system, collecting welfare and years of unemployment benefits and “workman’s compensation” and food stamps, how many people would be left voting Democrat?
Let’s put it this way, if having had a job – having done something that required either physical labor or risking one’s own money – were a prerequisite to work in the White House, Barack Obama would have to fire 94 percent of his top advisers.  That’s a real number.  Ninety four percent of Obama’s top advisers have never done anything like run a small store, paint a bridge, wire a house for electricity or anything else other than flap their lips.
This is the genesis of the notion that Palin is “stupid.”  Liberals are convinced that there’s something “the matter” with people who have jobs.  This is what they mean by “What’s the Matter with Kansas,” Kansas being a place where people work – Hollywood, Cambridge Massachusetts, the TV studios in Manhattan are places were people talk.  To the liberal, anyone who has a job must be stupid, after all, not everyone is as good a talker as they are, but surely everyone can find one excuse or another to sit at home and collect welfare.
In fact, to the modern liberal, anyone who has a job is not just stupid, he (or she) is dangerous. These people “cling” to their guns and their religion because they toil for their reward.  These people are constantly on the verge of violence, whether it’s an attack like the one they caused in Tucson (according to the leftist script) or just by going home and beating their children.  Consider the lyrics of “the working man’s troubadour” by Bruce Springsteen:

Early in the morning/factory whistle blows
Man rises from bed and puts on his clothes.

Man takes his lunch, walks out in the morning line
That’s the work, the workin’, that’s the workin’ life.

End of the day/Factory whistle cries
Man walks through them gates with death in their eyes.

And you just better believe, boy, somebody’s gonna get it tonight.
(Why?)  Cause that’s the work, the workin’ that’s that workin’ life!

Sarah Palin is stupid and dangerous because, well, to those who have made their millions by doing nothing other than talking, that’s the work, the workin’ that’s the workin’ life.  Just in case you think that’s just one example of Springsteen’s take on anyone who has a job, consider the horrors of his “daddy” who “worked his whole life, for nothing but the pain.”  In this song, “Adam Raised a Cain,” daddy, of course, beats his children, “now he walks these empty rooms searching for something to blame.”  And, in fact, it gets worse because, clearly, a child who is beaten is going to continue that cycle of violence and beat his child (“you inherit the sins/you inherit the flames”). So, even to the most sympathetic leftist like Springsteen, not one, not two, but three generations are destroyed all because “daddy” had to go to work.
And they hate Sarah Palin because she joined the PTA and made things better.  No, no, that’s not supposed to happen.  Schools (read: the teachers’ union) need more money, only more money will solve the problems in the schools.  Sarah Palin must be destroyed!
And, finally, they hate Sarah Palin because she was a successful mayor and governor.  The Democrat Party narrative is that the American people are too stupid to successfully govern themselves and need Harvard and Yale elitists to dictate to them how they should live their lives.  If a graduate of the University of Idaho can successfully run the biggest state in the union, then so can a kid who graduated from Texas A & M or even a kid with a degree from Eureka College.
If Democrats disagreed with Ms. Palin on the issues that would be one thing.  But they don’t merely “disagree” with her, they hate her and they hate her without caring one whit about where she stands on the issues. They hate her because she is living proof that everything about the Democratic Party narrative is a lie and for this reason she cannot be allowed to be liked — because if Democrats liked her, they might actually listen to her policies.

  1. Like the title says– damn straight!

  2. Yep the libs are full of PDS and I love it!! She drives them crazy…
    How miserable one must be to spew so much hate on a woman…

  3. We have to remember the party that has been in control has come out publicly,advertising as “The New Democratic Society” they are avowed marxist,communist and they have out and out told us that. Sarah Palin,is genuine,she stands for freedom,capitalism,has been very honest,definitely born in the U.S.A-wants independance from Middle East and such,stands for a strong military,is ready to kick out even the corrupt ole GOP’ers,think about it,she is a threat to them in every fashion. LOL! I’d like to see Anthony Weiner kill an elk or climb a rock! Ha! he has the perfect name.

  4. The half term governor is a “Dan Quayle” in heels. Since we already had an idiot “W” that caused our current economic debacle, America knows not to trust in fools who think they are brilliant. One of the reason for “W” failure was his drinking, Palin just has bad genes.

    • There you go…PDS and ignorance in its finest form, well done Montana!

    • “Palin just has bad genes.”
      That’s odd. I thought liberals don’t believe in heredity? So Palin inherited “bad genes” that account for her low IQ (“fool”), but you leftwingers don’t believe in the association between IQ and race. Now, if that isn’t what passes for thinking by fools, I don’t know what is!

  5. i wonder how the media would react if Palin had said that “i’ve been to 57 states,” or “my grandfather was among the troops that freed the jews at auschwitz” or “i can speak austrian” i bet they would say she was both a liar and stupid but our fearless moron in chief has said these remarks and the liberal media still believes that he is intelligent… as intelligent as a golden retriever maybe and i think that may be stretching it a bit there also… maybe more like a retarded pigeon . or iguana.

    • Yep, the Blame Stream Media has “edjucated” (Dave’s word) folks such as Montana to believe that Bush didn’t quit drinking until after he was prez, that D’s didn’t control House & Senate while the economy was tanking (thanks to Bawney, Dodd et al), and that Palin quit as Gov (like a certain someone did as Senator) to relieve her state of the costs of frivolous law suits filed by those w/PDS.

  6. Now, now….
    The left does not like Palin because because she is a screeching blow hard.
    Nothing more, nothing less.
    Sarah is NOT stupid, she has built a virtual empire around the cult of self, and few, if any stupid people could do that.
    Sarah was indeed the gov. of the largest state in the union, which has the least population, and is mostly immune to the problems common in states with urban areas.Sarah also quit office before her term was over.
    The lady from Alaska is attractive ( GREAT cheek bones and hair, nice figure), she pushes all the right buttons with her base, and her base adores her. Problem is, she is not qualified for the office of President. Y’all dont think Obama is either, but that doesn’t change the problem with Sarah.
    Ms. Palin is most likely done as far as running for president goes. I wish her well as she fades back into private life.

    • And why is she not qualified? Mayor – check, Gov – check. College – check. Barry – college – check, senator – present.
      PDS is alive and well!

  7. Blaming Bush for everything is wearing out (he’s not superhuman and been out of office for two years, you know) so now there’s Palin Derangment Syndrome (PDS)… left/libtards are just itchin’ for her to get into office so they can blame for everything they hate, too. (Of course, if we work this right, we can get the left/libtards to outsmart themselves in 2012… )

  8. “Why is she not qualified?”
    You’re kidding, are you not?
    “You guys hate her….”
    Steve, the “left” is not some monolithic entity.Most people on both sides and in the middle recognize Palin is a great cheerleader, and not much more.
    Some calling themselves liberals are the way left anacharists; the idiots who damned near wrecked one of my favorite cities (Seattle). Others are the PETA people(PLEEZE), then there’s me who just wants to make a decent living and have a retirement when I’m 64, and believes that affordable health care is a right, NOT a priviledge, who thinks public education is just fine ( MY kid just got an A+ on her calculus final exam), and wants to end these sick wars on Iraq and Afghanistan (and Somalia, Pakistan, Yemen, Uzbekistan ad infinitum….)Then there are the “limousine Liberals” who are so flipin’ wealthy, they wouldn’t know the first thing about “running a bead” of baiting a hook. Same thing about the “other side”, plenty of neighbors in my “gated community” couldn’t pull a weed if their live depended on it, though they’ll gladly hire Juan and Julio, then bitch about lax immigration.
    Steve, my brother; I don’t know where the myth about evil lazy “Liburals” started, but rest assured, it is a myth, and I for one have NO problem taking care of myself and my family.
    I would have voted for Ron Paul in the last election, but I chose the lesser of two evils (as usual) rather than throw the vote away ( as if it matters).
    “Yous” guys don’t see it that way, but that’s what makes things interesting.
    Obama is a centrist, and a lot of liberals are pissed at him.

  9. Anon, your comment has NO basis in fact.

  10. Steve, I gave your comment a “thumbs up”!

  11. “She beat the moose”
    Steve, you crack me up! Have a good day, I’ve got to tend to my jungle…..
