When Sarah Palin burst upon the national scene and the liberal media attempted to destroy her, I observed on my blog, Seraphic Secret, that she was being transformed into a hated Jew.
Each rhetorical bombardment against her was and is reminiscent of the Arab strategy to demonize Jews and Israel.
The attacks on Palin were and are blood libels.
The latest ghoulish assault – liberalism is socialism as lynch mob – on her was the mob frenzy to analyze some 24,000 Palin e-mails from her tenure as Alaska’s governor.
When Obama’s twenty-year discipleship to Jew-hater Jeremiah Wright was finally revealed, the liberal media dismissed this disgusting alliance as nothing more than guilt by association. We wonder if liberals would have the same attitude if it were revealed that a Republican presidential candidate attended KKK meetings for twenty years. We sort of doubt it.
Wright’s church is the black ideological mirror of the KKK. But for the liberal media the Obama/Wright man-crush was of zero interest. And there certainly was no clamor to turn up, let alone comb through, any juicy correspondence or cyber trail Obama may have left behind as a state legislator and U.S. senator.
Much to the chagrin of the propagandists who masquerade as journalists, the mountains of e-mail reveal Palin as a hard-working, effective public servant – transparent, humorous, distrustful of oil companies and willing to take on the corrupt Republican Party elite of Alaska.
Nevertheless, the blood libels will continue because liberals simply cannot bear the notion that a smart, beautiful and independent woman can be ideologically conservative.
But there are two issues that make Sarah Palin a particular object of liberal scorn:
1. Palin’s support and love of Israel is profound. Hence she was and is accused of anti-Semitism. The foul charge makes no sense. But, hey, cognitive dissonance is the hallmark of leftist/progressive/liberal thought.
(Note: I’m a friend of the Israeli tour guide who accompanied Palin during her recent trip to Israel. This guide has only good things to say about Palin and her family.)
2. Palin opposes abortion. In fact, she lives this philosophy, choosing to give birth to a Down syndrome baby, refusing to view her child as an inconvenience to be murdered in the womb.
