Anti-Palin protesters in California made themselves look like complete fools. Now, I do understand that here, in the greatest country in the world, people have a right to do so. We each have a right to assemble, rant and rave, and spew out nonsensical, unvalidated claims about someone, I suppose. But it sure looks ridiculous.
As you will see in the video below, the protesters were actually chanting, "Racist, sexist, anti-gay, Sarah Palin go away!" The gentleman from Conservative New Media asked several people to give evidence that the Governor was sexist, and of course, there was no logical response. Experience tells us we can distill the allegation to mean they disqualify her from being pro-woman because she is pro-life, because she doesn't believe we should murder our children in the womb, but instead believes in the sanctity and potential of every life. That makes her sexist in the warped mind of a flaming Liberal. One woman actually stated that Governor Palin does not espouse traditional family and Christian values. As defined by whom--the Gospel according to the Left? If I may speak frankly, the Left's version of right and wrong is so far from the teachings of the Gospel, it's scary.
After searching for a while, the interviewer discovered one tiny American flag in the midst of the haters. The sound of it waving in the wind certainly wasn't loud enough to drown out the man who declared he hated the Constitution. No wonder they don't like Governor Palin: she stands by our beloved Constitution. She's an American through and through.
Now, the Governor had a crowd of supporters gathered, as well. The difference between them and the anti-Palin people was glaring. Pro-Palin people were carrying flags, singing "God Bless America," and reciting the "Pledge of Allegiance." They were smiling, civil, and respectful. They demonstrated a clear love of America. When asked why Governor Palin had their support, they spoke intelligently of her support for our troops, her belief in our Constitution, and her position as a mom and role model. In spite of having Gatorade thrown at them, as one supporter claimed, they were happy and expectant of great things ahead--unlike their adversaries, who seemed quite miserable and dissatisfied with life. How sad that their worldview doesn't seem to offer them more hope and joy. When juxtaposed with the light emanating from Governor Palin and her supporters, the Left's darkness is that much more obvious.
The old saying, "a picture is worth a thousand words" certainly resounds with truth. A video, however, is worth even more. So see for yourself.
