The Evisceration of Sarah Palin
Posted by lamarzulli on July 14, 2009
Last night on the FOX channel, specifically a segment on the Bill O’Reilly show, the co-host, Gretchen Carlson of FOX and friends, used the word eviscerate in describing what the media had done to Sarah Palin. The word means to dis-embowel. In other words to gut someone. We live in a time where this is now looked upon as sport amongst the elite media in our country. The effete snobbery and biased ideology of the television anchors, reporters and commentators have created an envoirment that is toxic, to any who may disagree with their point of view. Unfortunately Sarah Palin was caught in the cross fire, a triangulation of beltway bias, and a written tirade of words from newspapers that demeaned, belittled, degraded and in the end eviscerated the former Governor and Vice Presidential candidate. Why? Most likely at the top of list was her belief in God and her pro-life stance. These two beliefs, which are held by many Americans are now looked upon as being archaic, and narrow minded. Those who would embrace God and life, are dismissed and looked down upon by those who have set themselves up as judge and jury. I would call your attention to when Palin was asked about the Bush doctrine, by Charles Gibson. You can see the distaste toward the Governor, ooze from every pour on Gibson’s face. Palin was also subjected to a long series of enervating, late night television humor, all at her expense and that of her families. Recently, David Letterman made a very unsavory remark which resulted in Palin firing back at him. In the end Letterman, apologized, but the damage had been done. Can you imagine having hundreds if not thousands of castigating remarks, articles, commentary all aimed at you and your family every day for months on end? Is it any wonder she reigned from her elected post as Governor of Alaska? I have said this before, our country is polarized. We are in a culture war between those who believe and embrace the sanctity of life and those who do not. Between those who believe that government should not be responsible for cradle to grave entitlements and those who want a nanny state. Between those who believe in God and demonstrate there faith in that God, and those who want no moral compass in the public discourse. One would think that the feminists in this country would have cried foul, with the way the media treated Palin, but we never heard a peep out of them. Why? All they seem to care about is abortion on demand. If Palin had been pro-choice, and perhaps championed late term abortions, she would have been hailed as a progressive. Of course these positions are exactly the opposite of what Palin believes. Her core values are in sync with millions of Americans, but the elite media that control much of what we see, hear and read takes issue with this and seeks to stamp it out and in this case eviscerate it… Freedom of the press? Unbiased news media?
