Ever since the surprise announcement of Alaska Governor, Sarah Palin, as Senator McCain’s choice for his Vice Presidential running mate, we have noticed a meltdown from the left, particularly so-called feminists.
This could not be more evident than is shown in the Chicago Sun Times op-ed by Black female columnist Mary Mitchell’s Palin should be laughingstock to all feminists article published September 13, 2008.
How sexist for this so-called feminist to begin her hit piece with, “ Sarah Palin makes me sick. I hate that she was able to steal Barack Obama's mojo just by showing up wearing rimless glasses and a skirt.”
For decades now, a male making such a comment was castigated and scorned for the “insensitivity” displayed towards a woman commenting on wearing a skirt.
Undoubtedly, Mitchell will be lauded by the left in America for her brave insight and courage in making such an assertion.
In her “article,” Mitchell continues the denigration of Palin’s motherhood coupled with being governor as well as having a 17 year-old pregnant daughter. Is this what feminism has degraded to, mocking and ridiculing of an accomplished woman who has succeeded in the supposed “man’s world” and managed to have a family at the same time?
I recall that “Feminism is a discourse that involves various movements, theories, and philosophies which are concerned with the issue of gender difference, advocate equality for women, and campaign for women's rights and interests.”
When did these “various movements, theories, and philosophies” come to exclude women who freely chose to be conservative? When did they exclude a woman because she may not only be conservative, but white?
Mitchell tips her hand when she claims, “ Sarah Palin makes me sick because although black Democrats have been responsible for giving white candidates the boost they needed to beat their Republican opponents in tight races, these voters are now being insulted by feminists who say they will cross over into the McCain camp because of her.”
Can this outburst be interpreted other than feminists owe it to the Black Democrat to support him, even after he threw over a woman candidate in favor of a long-time Washington insider for his running mate?
Is feminism and the presidency now a matter of Affirmative Action and liberalism over the originally stated goal of “advocating equality for women, and campaigning for women's rights and interests?”
Forgotten, or maybe ignored, by many is that Sarah Palin isn’t the Republican Presidential Candidate, John McCain is. She is the Vice Presidential Candidate, but being compared to the Democrats Presidential Candidate, Barack Hussein Obama, more affectionately known as “B HO.”
By simply googling Sarah Palin one will discover endless articles denigrating this woman, her family and her record by the angry over the top left. Mitchell’s it piece is no different, even to the continuation of false rumors spread about her.
It would be too easy and polite to simply write this off as sloppy journalism. It is obviously a direct assault, another one, on the character of a woman who has lived by the creed of feminism as originally stated and succeeded by her own accords, possibly beyond her wildest imaginations.
Recently, another Black Celebrity confronted Senator McCain over strict interpretation of the United States Constitution. Showing a total lack of intelligence about our government and Constitution, and in an overly melodramatic way, Whoopi Goldberg asked if she should be worried about becoming a slave again due to McCain’s desire to appoint Justice’s to the Supreme Court who would interpret it as written by the Founding Fathers.
Perhaps she should be more concerned with how far back women in general, especially conservative white women, have been pushed by this totally unhinged prostitution of the feminist movement by the left.
