Every once in a while you come across an editorial or a column that leaves you breathless by its boldness and truthfulness. I just finished reading such a piece, which was written by Robin of Berkeley in American Thinker and it is a must read for everyone.
We all have our theories and assumptions regarding the treatment of Sarah Palin by the left, but the reformed leftist/progressive Robin of Berkeley has been able to figure out what is behind this hatred of Sarah Palin. And even more shocking, the reasons behind their vicious attacks on her.
Finally, it all makes sense.
Here is an excerpt:
The Left’s behavior towards Palin is not politics as usual. By their laser-focus on her body and her sexuality, leftists are defiling her.
They are wilding her. And they do this with the full knowledge and complicity of the White House.
The Left has declared war on Palin because she threatens their existence. Liberals need women dependent and scared so that women, like blacks, will vote Democrat.
A strong, self-sufficient woman, Palin eschews liberal protection. Drop her off in the Alaskan bush and she’ll survive just fine, thank you very much. Palin doesn’t need or want anything from liberals — not hate crimes legislation that coddles her, and not abortion, which she abhors.
Palin is a woman of deep and abiding faith. She takes no marching orders from messiah-like wannabes like Obama.
And so the Left must try to destroy her. And they are doing this in the most malicious of ways: by symbolically raping her.
Just like a perpetuator, they dehumanize her by objectifying her body. They undress her with their eyes.
They turn her into a piece of ass.
Liberals do this by calling her a c__t, ogling her legs, demeaning her with names like “sexy flight attendant” and “Trailer Park Barbie,” and exposing her flesh on the cover of Newsweek.
And from Atlantic Magazine’s Andrew Sullivan: “Sarah Palin’s vagina is the font of all evil in the galaxy.”
Nothing is off-limits, not actress Sandra Bernhard’s wish that Palin be gang-raped or the sexualization of Palin’s daughters.
As every woman knows, leering looks, lurid words, and veiled threats are intended to evoke terror. Sexual violence is a form of terrorism.
