Hate Speech

UPDATE: below

John Hawkins of Right Wing News lists "The 20 Most Obnoxious Anti-Palin Quotes So Far," including:
  • "They shouldn't have the right to call themselves Christian, for they have no Christ-like attributes. I am a feminist and a Christian - and when I see Sarah Palin - I see neither. And it is official. She is evil." -- Margaret Cho


  • "Bad Mother Palin is blabbing about how her pregnant teenage daughter has made the right CHOICE!!! Well, first of all, Ms. Palin, I mean MRS. Palin, your slutty daughter wouldn't have a CHOICE to make at all, if you had your way!!! ...I can see that she gets off talking badly to Barack, and I am sure the "N" word is rollin around that empty head of hers somewhere." -- Roseanne Barr


  • "Her greatest hypocrisy is in her pretense that she is a woman." -- Wendy Doniger at the Washington Post
Hawkins misses two other repellent remarks:
  • "A man and a woman whose values we loathe and despise -- lying, rageful and incompetent, so dangerous to children and old people, to innocent people in every part of the world -- are being worshiped, exalted by the media, in a position to take a swing at all that is loveliest about this earth and what's left of our precious freedoms.

    When I got home from church, I drank a bunch of water to metabolize the Dove bar and called my Jesuit friend, who I know hates these people, too. I asked, 'Don't you think God finds these smug egomaniacs morally repellent? Recoils from their smugness as from hot flame?'

    And he said, 'Absolutely. They are everything He or She hates in a Christian.'" -- Anne Lamott in Salon


  • "[E]verything Sarah Palin believes in and practices is antithetical to Feminism which for me is part of one story -- connected to saving the earth, ending racism, empowering women, giving young girls options, opening our minds, deepening tolerance, and ending violence and war. . .

    Sarah Palin does not much believe in thinking." -- Rosie O'Donnell Eve Ensler [NOfP note: O'Donnell was quoting Ensler]

This "progressive" intolerance is breathtakingly ugly. Scratch a liberal, find a fascist. Read Hawkins's whole list.

WCBS-TV on Friday:
Already under fire for his tax troubles, Manhattan [Democrat] Congressman Charles Rangel really put his foot in his mouth on Friday.

In a CBS 2 HD exclusive interview, Rep. Rangel called Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin "disabled."

The question was simple: Why are the Democrats so afraid of Palin and her popularity?

The answer was astonishing.

"You got to be kind to the disabled," Rangel said.

That's right. The chairman of the powerful House Ways & Means Committee called Palin disabled -- even when CBS 2 HD called him on it.

CBS 2 HD: "You got to be kind to the disabled?"

Rangel: "Yes."

CBS 2 HD: "She's disabled?"

Rangel: "There's no question about it politically. It's a nightmare to think that a person's foreign policy is based on their ability to look at Russia from where they live."
Bob Owens, a/k/a Confederate Yankee, summarizes:
In less than a month, Sarah Palin has gone from the well-liked governor of a remote state to the most slurred and slandered politician in America today.
MORE & MORE:
  • "I don't like Sarah Palin. . . What I've written on this site about Palin so far has been pretty restrained, considering what I feel for her privately could be described as violent, nay, murderous, rage. When Palin spoke on Wednesday night, my head almost exploded from the incandescent anger boiling in my skull. . .

    What's infuriating, and perhaps rage-inducing, about Palin, is that she has always embodied that perfectly pleasing female archetype, playing by the boys' game with her big guns and moose-murdering, and that she keeps being rewarded for it. Our schadenfreude for the homecoming queen's mediocrity has turned into white hot anger at her continued dominance." -- Jessica Grose, associate editor at Jezebel.com


  • [If she enters Manhattan, Palin would be] "gang-raped by my big black brothers." -- Sandra Bernhard


  • "What you learn about Barack from his choice [of vice president] is that he's not afraid of smart people." -- Michelle Obama


  • Josh Gerstein rounds up reactions from other "women on the verge" in Friday's NY Sun


  • Zina Saunders paints Palin as liberty killing--literally.


  • So Hog On Ice asks:
    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.

It is ugly, and proof positive of just how threatened they are by all that Palin embodies.

These people see the beginning of the end and they have invested all their 'belief' in liberal shibboleths.

Their world-view is collapsing and they rail against what they see as the coming of the night.

Yes, they really are that twisted.

> I am a feminist and a Christian - and when I see Sarah Palin - I see neither. And it is official. She is evil.

LOL. She's now the official arbiter of what is Christian? That, in and of itself, is exactly the sort of "unChristian" thing which she's railing against. The disconnect is glaring.

> I can see that she gets off talking badly to Barack, and I am sure the "N" word is rollin around that empty head of hers somewhere.

Yeah, I'm sure Rosanne Barr has EVERY idea what goes on in others' heads. Did Barr even finish HS? She's been married three times, for only a short time each. Somehow I don't think her opinions are worth the hot air it took to spew them, much less the bile.

Can you say "projection"? I knew ya could...

I really don't have a good opinion of lefty policies, but "loathe and despise" are pretty strong words for mere viewpoints. "Lying"? "Rageful"? We aren't the ones throwing out "loathe and despise", for one thing. And I think the number of documented outright lies in the MSMs about Sarah Palin outnumbers the truths told about her.

"Worshipped", "Exalted by the media"? LOL. There's a reason one referent is "Obamessiah", and not "Palinophet". And the absurd notion that McCain or Palin are exalted by the media just shows such a total failure to grasp reality that it's flabbergasting. How do these people manage to function with a worldview so utterly disconnected with reality?

BILL and HILLARY CLINTON for CO-PRESIDENTS of the USA!

Hurry up and amend the Constitution to make it possible.

Brains needed now.

If they can spend trillions of dollars in a flash, surely Congress can act to restore the possibility of a THIRD TERM for Bill Clinton.

We need a President who understands economics, finance, business and government and BILL CLINTON is the only person around who fits that description.

Put your jealousy aside and push for a third term for Bill Clinton.

He can run as in INDEPENDENT.

In fact, perhaps we should all register as Independents considering how little our parties have done for us lately.

Sandra Bernhard's biggest attraction was always just an ugly woman trying to be funny. These Leftist women are really losing their minds. Rosanne wondered on Bill Maher's show whether McCain would take away women's right to vote. Even Maher's audience thought that was a nutso thing to think.
