Rightwing says any criticism of Sarah Palin, is sexist? At all?
Sarah Palin spent an interview attacking President Obama. Which is of course her perfect right. She called him a man of "radicalism" and "not a man of valor". Again her right. But when the Obama campaign ran an ad countering her comments, she and her defenders engaged in a whine fest. The ad by the Obama campaign did no more than quote her actual beliefs about President Obama. Her beliefs that he is taking us back to before the Civil War.
Yes, she said that. Of course, Rush Limbaugh, who is in full defense mode after calling a young man the s word, stated that the ad criticizing Palin was because she was a woman. Sigh, how pathetic, Rush. So Palin and any other female conservative can't be criticized because they are a woman? Seriously? If I was a woman, I would be highly offended at the idea that someone couldn't criticize my political beliefs, because it would be sexist somehow. Heck, I am still kind of offended.
Here is what she said word for word. Judge what she said and judge the Obama ad response in the previous link I posted in this article. His campaign did nothing more than used what she said, against her. Nothing more.
"He is bringing us back to days, you can hearken back to days before the Civil War, when unfortunately too many Americans mistakenly believed that not all men were created equal. And it was the Civil War that began the codification of the truth that here in America, yes we are equal, and we all have equal opportunities, not based on the color of your skin, you have equal opportunity to work hard and to succeed and to embrace God-given opportunities to develop resources and work extremely hard and as I say, to succeed.
Now, it has taken all these years for many Americans to understand the gravity of that mistake that took place before the Civil War and why the Civil War had to really start changing America. What Barack Obama seems to want to do is go back to before those days when we were in different classes based on income, based on color of skin. Why are we allowing our country to move backwards instead of moving forward with that understanding that as our charters of liberty spell out for us, we are all created equally?"
