Palin threatens Liberal Ideology

For all of the liberal goings on on equality and rights, freedom of choice and independent thinking as well as supposed desire to "change" things, it is rather interesting to watch as this VP issue has set the moonbat fringe on fire. Change is only good if its change that fits the Obama mold.

She is attacked for deciding to have a baby...freedom of choice? Is not that part of the liberal mantra? She is accused of every goofy made up foolishness imaginable, and even full frontal attacks on her kids are being foisted upon the web.

The left says they are for equal rights for women...but it seems only if that womanis one who subscribes to leftist liberal beliefs. If she happens to be female and conservative then they drop all the nice open desire for equality and go for daggers.

What is clear is thAT the Palin choice has the Obama campaign in a bind. And with no strategy in place to deal with this pick, the campaign has done nothing to help the fringe by issuing talking points and as a result the fringe, fed by the Kos and other nutjob sources is spinning wildly out of control.

The Coming Trials of Sarah Palin
By J. Robert Smith


Democrats and the left generally can no more accept a Sarah Palin vice presidency than they could Clarence Thomas as a Supreme Court justice. They can no more accept a conservative woman a heartbeat away from the presidency than they can a conservative African-American interpreting the nation's laws. Expect the long knives to be out, and stay out.


Since the Clarence Thomas nomination fight in 1991, conservatives and fair-minded Americans have learned a bitter lesson: for liberals, it isn't about promoting the advancement of all African-Americans, but only those in step with their ideology and aims. The same can be said of women. Liberals believe they own the franchise, and it doesn't allow for baby-making, gun-friendly, God-fearing women, who, not incidentally, fight for lower taxes, smaller government and a strong national defense. They certainly can't be Republicans.


Aside from her xx chromosomes, Governor Palin flunks the liberal litmus test. She presents a powerful and alluring role model for women, especially younger women, who are regularly bombarded with not just conflicting messages about their roles in modern society -- careerist versus mother -- but are regularly lectured by the left, politically and culturally, that if choices are to be made, then career, not family, is preeminent.


Sarah Palin, an obviously remarkable woman, demonstrates that family and career mustn't be mutually exclusive. Yet it's a safe bet that if need be, this wife or twenty years and mother of five would put family first.


Moreover, Palin represents a threat to the left's narrative that, due primarily to the wearing out of conservatism and generational change, voters are moving inexorably their way. Conservatives have argued for awhile that they have no shortage of ideas, but a shortage of candidates and politicians who possess the desire and will to articulate and advance those ideas.


The forty-four year old Palin is in the vanguard of the new generation of conservative politicians. Louisiana's Bobby Jindal isn't far behind. The Palin nomination puts the lie to the argument that conservatism is headed for the dustbin. The Governor's nomination will serve as a clarion call to younger women and men who find her dynamic, upbeat personality, rootedness and strong advocacy of conservative ideas appealing.


Part of Palin's attraction is that she's a solid conservative reformer, who's unflinchingly tackled government corruption -- corruption largely on the part of oil interests and the old bulls in her own party. Ask Frank Murkowski, Alaska's former governor, who lost to challenger Palin in 2006. Or embattled Congressman Don Young, who's heading for a recount against Alaska Lieutenant Governor Sean Parnell, a Palin ally who the Governor is publicly backing.


She's also told indicted Alaska powerhouse Senator Ted Stevens to take his Bridge to Nowhere back to Washington. Her reformist efforts have won her high approval ratings from voters.


Enter the Long Knives


But the trials of Job lie ahead for Governor Palin. Expect Democrats, the left and their allies in the establishment media to go well beyond the initial attacks on the Governor's inexperience and whatever they can pick out of her record. In the coming weeks, the left's whole political and media machine will seek not only to trip up the Governor to prove their contentions that she's dangerously inexperienced, but will attack her character. They'll especially go after her motherhood, her womanhood and her honesty.


They'll argue that Palin's demanding political career undermines her strong pro-family stances. It's tough enough to be governor and a mother, they'll say, much less vice president and a mother. Certainly, Palin will need to construct a powerful counter to that argument; no doubt, she already has.


Of course, the question is never asked of a man. Case in point, Barack Obama, who has two young daughters of his own. Don't young daughters need a father as much as they need their mother? If the demands of the vice presidency are great, aren't the presidency's demands greater?


This may come as a surprise to politics-obsessed, government-centered liberals, but the perception that the presidency and vice presidency are all-consuming is overblown. That perception owes as much to the drama and stagecraft of those offices as to the facts.


President Reagan didn't live his presidency. Why should he have? George W. Bush isn't living his. Why should he? President Reagan had a life outside the office. President Bush does too. Indeed, there are times when the demands of both offices are great, when the holders are required to go into overdrive and burn the midnight oil. But not typically, and Vice President Palin could well serve as a conspicuous example of an executive who makes an important job and family life work.


And doesn't an attack on Palin's motherhood conflicting with her work life contradict longstanding feminist claims about women pursuing both? The answer is yes, but what does that matter? You expect logic and fairness? The left plays mercilessly for advantage. Contradictions are nuisances. The messaging will aim to bury the contradictions under a blizzard of criticism and negative news stories.


Palin's womanhood will also be questioned, because it is the left which is licensed to define womanhood, just as the left is permitted to define blackness. And make no mistake, feminism is a subsidiary of the left.


By the left's definition, a pro-life woman cannot be a woman. A woman who seeks a family-centered society, not a government-centered society, cannot be a woman. A woman who celebrates traditional American values, and not the secular values of Europeanized liberalism, cannot be a woman.


Sarah Palin is a threat to the left's feminist agenda. She is an eloquent and persuasive testament to the fact that the modern woman can embrace traditional values while seeking her place in the professional world. She can produce better than 2.2 children, love them, engage them and still make a difference in her community, state and nation.


And the left will attack Palin the Reformer. It will seek to undermine her honesty. The left can't help but concede that Palin has fought corruption in Alaska, but they'll assert that her firing of the state's public safety commissioner was a misuse of office; that when it comes to her or her family, she's all too ready to abuse her powers.


Here, again, we must expect that Palin has anticipated the argument. That, as they might say in Alaska, she's loaded for bear. From available news sources, it appears that the Governor was well in her purview to replace the commissioner.


Do note that when it comes to the subject of honesty, nary a word has been expended by the establishment media re-introducing Americans to Joe Biden's law school plagiarism and his lifting of lines from a speech by British Labour Party Chief Neil Kinnock, the latter forcing Biden to exit the 1988 presidential contest. And don't hold your breath.


Countering the Long Knives


With her confidence and poise, Governor Palin will be her own best advocate. But with the onslaught of criticism headed her way, with the game of "gotcha" that the Democrats and the media will play with cunning and relentlessly, she can't be expected to fight the good fight alone. And it isn't enough for the GOP and the McCain campaign to cover her back.


Conservatives from all quarters will need to answer the bell. To defeat attempts by the left and their handmaidens in the media to destroy the Governor's character, the conservative response will need to be swift, sure and unflagging. Conservatives will need to be smart and creative in the ways of getting their arguments and messages to average voters.


The battle of the narratives will begin, with the legacy media and the Democrats on one side and the new conservative media, especially talks radio and the internet, that engine of creativity, research, analysis and energy, on the other.


Sarah Palin's candidacy represents not only a new and important chapter for the conservative movement and the Republican Party, but for the nation as well. And how will you know this? By the volume and ferocity of attacks to come against Governor Palin leading up to the November elections.

Palen Threatens Liberal Ideology is why all the Lunaticy has taken place the last 2-3 days. Just look at the thread Starters and why the liberals are printing and expanding on there stories. Liberal Lunacy is putting on a FULL Court Press against
Governor Palen. She represents everything they dislike about traditional family values.

The last 2-3 days should be made into a movie some day.

The ideals of liberalsim (liberty and justice for all) have been under assault for thirty years. The Reagan neocons started undermining responsive government and it has reached its apex under the right wing corporate fascists currently occupying the White House.

A neophyte like Palin can hardly do any more damage to this country or to the liberal ideals it was founded on than Bush & Cheney have already done. It's just more of the same and that is what people are sick of.

Palin wasn't subjected to this intense of scrutiny when she was just the Governor of Alaska. 750,000 Alaskans were looking to see if Palin would retain her popularity with that voting public for that office. Her experience was dealing with that group. She is now on a much bigger stage with considerably larger diverse views. It is what I expect. I look at all the details brought up about the other candidates and it is pretty par for the course. These are the only offices that the entire nation votes for so it is not unexpected that everyone that runs for this office is pretty naked and exposed in their lives.

1Then it came to pass in the Land of Entitlement that the Word became Change and the Change became Hope and the Hope became Change You Can Believe In. 2And The Obamessisah went about all fifty-seven states, teaching at their Caucuses and Primaries, healing malaise among the poor in spirit, and preaching the gospel of Progress. 3Then His fame went throughout all the land; and they came to Him all people who were afflicted with Bush Derangement; and those who were hopenitized; moonbats and troofers; and He wooed them. 4Great multitudes followed Him - from Chicago to Jersey, and beyond the Hills of Beverly.

I've grown to love this place. I enjoy watching the extremists on both sides writhe with every new twist in the election process. The intrawebnets has created a new type of "polititard" that is very entertaining to watch.
