Why is Sarah Palin dangerous? Really dangerous? Her Palinbots would have you think it's because she can WIN AN ELECTION ... which only confirms how idiotic they are.
No, she isn't going to win an election. She isn't even going RUN for office, it's too much work. Why run when she gets more attention by hiring a ghostwriter and publishing a mindlessly stupid book. A book so full of inacuracies that a whole cottage industry is now arising just to keep track of the lies! Most of us who actually watched the campaign, and have paid attention to current events for more than 6 months, don't need to do a whole lot of research to spot the lies. They are glaringly obvious.
The reason Sarah is dangerous, is because she willfully incites hate and anger; in her speeches, in her fear-mongering (death panels) in her racist/divisive comments (real America vs other America) and in her misleading rhetoric. Unfortunately, it's becoming increasingly obvious that no matter what lies/nonsense Sarah spouts, her followers will lap it up and swallow it whole. They don't have the intellectual curiosity to verify anything she says: Sarah counts on that.
Tonight, in a segment called "The Right's Reckless Rhetoric" Rachel Maddow and her guest, Frank Schaeffer, explained the rise and danger of the very type of people who rally behind Sarah, and her surrogate (also endorsed on her OFFICIAL SITE) Glen Beck and other people on FOX.
Links to the website selling this stuff, AND comments regarding Psalm 109:8 appear often on Sarah's site. And remain there.
This blog is my small attempt to document the idiocy of her Palinbots. I spend way too much time reading her support sites, but I focus on her OFFICIAL site, because I feel that I want a record of what goes on in Sarah's sanctionned space. These last few weeks, I have noticed that the rabid frenzy has been rising to a higher pitch.
I suspect that the reason her FB site has closed down at night for the past few weeks is because too many of these crazies are posting this stuff. Palin is ok with inciting, of course, we saw her do it on the campaign trail last summer; it's just that if this stuff is on her OFFICIAL site, she is responsible and she knows it. Sarah's site has always been highly censored insofar as no opposition to Sarah's statements, or those of her followers were tolerated. This means her OFFICIAL site has alert Moderators, but a lot of violent talk was allowed to remain posted. Racist sites (one about the Obama girls and sexual references) were rarely deleted, and few members objected. I often objected (under another name) by pointing out that this type of talk reflected on Sarah, and I was often berated for that, called a Muslim lover or a troll, then bounced or banned from the page.
I know this is a rather dull post, but I wanted to go on record with this, as well as urge anyone who did not see the Maddow segment to watch it now. (Click the link above) and pass it around to anyone who might not have seen it.
At the end of the segment, Schaeffer say it's gone beyond funny now; it's serious, and it's high time that Obama supporters speak out agains this.
In my small way, on my little blog that nobody reads, I just did that.
Thanks for reading, thanks for taking 5 minutes to watch the segment.
