Why Is The Left Afraid Of Sarah Palin?

Question: "Why is the Left afraid of Sarah Palin?" -- Dick_Nixon

Answer: There are multiple reasons why the left hates Sarah Palin.

They despise her for being a "regular Sally" made good -- that's something their politicians pretend to be, but never really are. She didn't go to an Ivy League School. She has an accent -- and it's not a New York accent. She's small town, not big city. She's not rich. She's not a lawyer. She has 5 kids and had a baby with Down's syndrome instead of aborting him. So, much of it is just out and out snotty elitism.

But, all those factors are ultimately small potatoes compared to the two main reasons why the left utterly despises and fears Sarah Palin.

#1) The left thinks they own everybody who isn't a straight, white male. If you're female, Hispanic, black, Asian, gay -- pretty much anything but a straight, white male -- and you're not liberal -- the left wants to see you destroyed because your very existence explodes the myth that people like you can only succeed through liberalism.

In Sarah Palin's case, she is a walking, talking, living refutation of everything the feminist harpies in the Democratic Party tell people. Conservative men, who they claim look down on women, adore her and would love to have her as their President. She's staunchly pro-life. She's not a man-hater who's railing against the patriarchy. In other words, she's the biggest female rock star in politics -- and she's not a liberal; nor is she someone who'd see eye-to-eye with Gloria Steinem, Naomi Wolf, or the nags at NOW on much of anything.

#2) Sarah Palin genuinely excites conservatives like no other politician in America today. There's no other Republican pol who even comes close -- and this is very important -- you will only start to see the GOP make a comeback when the base gets fired up about the Republican Party again.

When the base is excited, they will chip in money, they will volunteer, they will defend the GOP instead of trashing it -- it's the single most important factor key to turning things around and Sarah Palin is obviously capable of pulling it off. That makes her a dire threat to the left, one that they are desperate to smear and destroy.
