Yesterday, I asked a fellow blogger if she could think of any more rotten things the left could do to Sarah Palin. I was being sarcastic. My point was that leftists had been so creative and so cruel, it was hard to think of anything new for them to do. Wow, was I wrong.
They accused her of pretending her daughter's baby was hers. They said she should have stayed home having babies, instead of governing a state. They compared her to the political-machine stooge (close kin to a community organizer) who had Jesus scourged and delivered Him up for crucifixion. Then they hacked into her email account, and leftist blogs put the emails on display, claiming they were "legitimate news."
Now we learn that Sanda Bernhard is publicly joking about Governor Palin being gang-raped by Bernhard's "big black brothers." And people are paying to hear this crap. Not many; it looks like she's appearing in one of those clubs that used to be a Pack-n-Ship or a Mrs. Field's, but still...
What is the point of making a joke like this? What merit is there in the joke, that justifies putting that horrible image in our minds, and in the minds of Governor Palin's kids? What will we joke about next? Raping children? Auschwitz?
What exactly did Sarah Palin do, to deserve the treatment she has received from the left? She accepted an invitation to run for public office. That's her crime. She didn't shoot up a day care center. She didn't bomb the World Trade Center. She didn't--let me pull an example out of a hat--bomb the Pentagon, publicly confess it, and state that she wished she had done more. She didn't steal documents from the National Archives. She didn't commit perjury and get disbarred. She didn't con the government out of hundreds of thousands of dollars for a bogus land deal in Arkansas. She didn't encourage Los Angeles residents to riot, shouting "No justice, no peace!" She didn't hit a security officer on her way into the Capitol. She wasn't involved in the first and only real "Troopergate." She didn't hide $90,000 in bribe money in her freezer. She didn't steal furniture from the White House, or vandalize it before a new administration moved in. She just answered the call, when her party and her country needed her.
It's a wonder anyone is willing to run for office as a Republican. Look at the treatment our candidates and politicians get. If the kooks don't get you, unethical prosecutors will. And the press will turn a blind eye, and sometimes, they'll aid in the persecution.
What an education her kids are getting. Liberals present themselves as warm and loving people who care about all the trees and bunnies, and who protect the downtrodden from mean old Republicans, who want to return to the feudal system. But there is nothing warm and loving about the way liberals are treating Sarah Palin. It's no exaggeration to say they display more hatred for her than they do for Osama bin Laden.
Governor Palin's treatment is an ominous reminder of the way the hard left wishes to treat those who disagree with it. It reminds us that killing fields and gulags can happen here, too. If Bill Ayers were in charge, we would have had those things forty years ago. And it looks like Sandra Bernhard would approve.
What ever happened to perspective? When did Americans decide that the need to win an election justified this kind of vile behavior?
Another question: what does Sandra Bernhard think of black men? It seems pretty obvious. She thinks they gang-rape people for trivial reasons. I'm trying to think of a more depraved example of racism, but I'm drawing a blank. This is a person who feels solidarity with blacks? She cares about them and respects them and empathizes with them, but she thinks she can count on them to rape a visiting governor. Black people should rejoice, having a friend who thinks so highly of them. I wonder what the Obamas thought of her remarks.
I already hoped Sarah Palin would win, because I support her politically. But now I hope she wins because her enemies are so vicious. I don't want to see them rewarded.
I wonder if we can make it to Monday without a new story about someone sliming or threatening or mistreating Sarah Palin. I hope so, but I wouldn't bet my lunch money on it.
