That's how you'll be painted (and worse) if you're a minority or woman and don't toe the leftist party line. But why the viciousness of the attacks?
One word. Fear.
Fear of loosing their power base. Fear that the Left's ideology will be seen in the clear light of day for the foolishness it is.
In case you haven't been paying attention, Sarah Palin and family have been savaged in the leftist media and blogosphere this past week. It's been quite a spectacle. Those who would call someone like Sarah Palin a facist and a Nazi need to look in a mirror. Think it's bit of projection by the Left?
This article by John Hawkins covers these Palin happenings pretty well. Here's the money quote:
That's why the Left reserves their blackest hatred for people like Clarence Thomas, Condi Rice, Michelle Malkin, Ann Coulter, and now Sarah Palin; it's because they're living, breathing, inspirational examples of people the Left is supposed to "own," who don't want or need liberalism to be a success. That, most of all, is why liberals hate and fear successful conservative women.
As far as being called White Trash or a Redneck... Bring it on.
We Scots-Irish are "Born Fighting".
Someone check Sarah Palin's family tree. Looks like she could be one of us.
