The Left Hates Governor Palin. Why?

Thursday, January 20, 2011

I could probably cover my living room walls with opinion pieces written about why such hatred for Governor Palin exists. "Why the Left Hates Sarah Palin" by Robin of Berkeley is definitely one of the best. The sister hits the nail squarely on the head. She writes:


My mind flashed to this awful memory after hearing that Palin was being scapegoated for the Tucson Massacre. Palin has been a target of the left's wrath from the moment she was nominated for vice president. Many conservatives have tried to explain why.

Some say it's jealousy, which is true; Palin is a lovely woman with a handsome husband. She's also a self-made woman; Palin has risen to power on her own, without the coattails of husband or father.

Some conservatives believe that the hatred is a result of brainwashing; this is true, as well. Liberals respond robotically, like Pavlov's dogs, whenever Palin's name is uttered.

But there's a darker reason for the abject hatred of Palin, and the clues can be found in that Catskill Mountains bunk. Because evil can manifest when people project their own badness and shame onto another.

People on the left hate Palin for one simple reason: because she is everything they are not. She is their polar opposite because her life journey has diverged from the prescribed liberal path.

Palin was raised to be self-sufficient and independent since "idle hands are the devil's tools." Little Sarah was up at the crack of dawn, hunting with her dad; in sharp contrast, liberal kids like me were still fast asleep.

Palin didn't have life handed to her on a silver platter, like so many in the ruling class. Instead, Sarah balanced school, chores, jobs, and sports. While liberal girls like me were glued to the boob tube, Sarah had no time for sloth.

Palin attended church with her family on Sundays. On Sunday morning, young liberals like me were recovering from Saturday night.

From her devout Christian upbringing, Sarah learned to be a good girl. In contrast, I learned everything I needed to know about how to be a modern girl from the monthly Playboy Magazine, which was conspicuously displayed on our living room table.

Sarah dated and then married her high school sweetheart; I learned that my body was a commodity that I "owned." And I could use my body -- and allow it to be used -- to temporarily still the pangs of loneliness.


And then, out of the blue, Sarah Palin, like a majestic bird in flight, swooped onto the scene of a depraved and deprived nation. With her children and grandchild, her religion and her patriotism, Sarah is the antithesis of everything the progressives stand for. Palin is not just pro-life, but she emanates life -- and good, clean living.

And what does the left do? They try to drag her through the mud to sully her. The hardcore among them want to eliminate her, even if this means putting her life at risk.

The progressives "joke" about gang-rape, make pornographic movies about her, and leer at her legs. (Would any of this be tolerated against Michelle Obama?)

Palin's church was torched during the primary, a vicious crime that was hushed up by the MSM. And now, with the smears about Tucson, death threats against Palin have soared.

Yes, leftists attack Palin because they envy her beauty; and true, she's a political threat. But the main reason for the hatred is something deeper and darker.

Leftists loathe Palin because she has retained something that was stripped from them years ago: a wholesomeness, a purity of heart. People on the left despise Palin because she shines a bright light on their shame and unworthiness, which they try desperately to deny.

The progressives, like that brutal gang of abandoned girls, want to drag Palin down into the gutter with them; they want to spoil her. Of course, their efforts will be futile; Palin is fueled by a Spirit that isn't simply her own.

The left knows only how to point fingers, and threaten, and menace. Why? They are lost, abandoned children as well; they have shunned the only Force who could wash them clean and bring them home again.

As I have stated before, Sarah has an Inner Light that is incredibly bright. It's so bright to me that it's almost blinding at times. Rarely have I seen someone have such an inner beauty that matches (and exceeds!) their outer beauty, as is the case with Sarah Palin.

Even now, after all the disgusting filth and vile smears that have been hurled at her, I have a hard time picturing Sarah hating her attackers. She is just so full of life and love to wallow in darkness. She LOVES her family! She LOVES her friends! She LOVES Alaska! She LOVES our country! And, of course, she LOVES God! Sorry, Hate, but you'll just have to take a number and wait... and wait... and wait....

Robin's article is excellent in outlining the Left's Reasons to Hate, but there is yet another:

Hate is all they have Left.

I could go on, and on, describing how bankrupt the Left has become (and we as a nation are in danger of becoming as a result), but suffice it to say that without an Enemy they fall apart. They turn on themselves. Whether it be BusHitler or Darth Cheney or Killer Karl Rove or Glenn Beck or Rush Limbaugh or Sarah Palin and her Murderous Map, the Left *must* have a bogey(wo)man to HATE.

How else can you explain the sheer insanity of the Left's apoplectic rage over symbols on a political map? Or their fixation on every single word she says?

I oppose most every one of Obama's policies, but I've *never* hated him like they *hate* Palin. I don't hang out on pro-Obama websites like lefty trolls do on pro-Palin ones. That's just insane! It's also, unfortunately, quite sad, as well.

[Sorry this comment was so long, Adrienne, but just be thankful that I ended it here. =]
