    Palin stops at Chick-fil-A, left responds with misogyny and sexism

    Palin stops at Chick-fil-A, left responds with misogyny and sexism

    Thank you, Sarah, for bringing out the best in them again.

    My post earlier today, Sarah Palin visits Chick-fil-A, civility and new tone ensue on Twitter, has generated a fair bit of attention.

    The tweets highlighted in the post were not even the worst of them. As has become typical when Palin is attacked from the left, the attacks quickly become mysogynistic, sexualized, and sexist, with the “C” word liberally thrown in by women as well as men.

    Here are some more samples of the sea of profanity and vitriol, so you realize (which you already do, I know), we are dealing with:

    So scary, that they have no shame and even use their real identities. There are people who I disagree with it all the time, and do not have to resort to this. I’m sure they don’t care about my concern. They are not expressing an idea, just verbal bullying.

    I have no facts but I would be inclined to dispute the premise that the Right does as much of the vile tweeting/slurs/etc as the Left. Given the willingness of the media to highlight every perceived instances of biotry/racism if we routinesly used language toward Hillary Clinton or even DWS as is used toward Palin the media would be blasting it on the front page of every lib rag.

    I am not saying people don’t say stupid insults but the level of crude sexual trashing toward Palin is something I’ve never seen.

    When you actually try and look at who these vile post are coming from many appear to be from younger people, both make & female, many appear to be from gays, many from black wannabie rappers and a surprising number from what appear to be normal middle aged people who would be seriously offended to have someone talk to them or women in their family that way.

      Interesting point, katiejane.

      I recall Madame Speaker Pelosi decrying the racism from the Tea Party Movement during her triumphant march with the Dems to the House when they voted in ObamaCare. She claimed someone spat on a black Congressman. She claimed the n-word was hurled at them.

      Of course there was no evidence of this, but she didn’t let that stop her from making the accusations.

      I was there when they went marching past; Madame Speaker with her smug, drunk-on-power expression and that ridiculously oversized hammer (one wonders where she hid the sickle). Nobody spat. No racial epithets were hurled. Nothing of the sort was seen.

      But I’ll tell you what was seen. THOUSANDS of smartphones with cameras connected to the web. I saw network television cameras. I saw documentarians with cameras. I saw Capitol security with cameras. I saw security cameras on the Capitol. And yet not a single one of these managed to capture this supposed ignominious moment in American history. If such a thing had occurred it would have been plastered all over every television network in the world, every newspaper, every blog, YouTube, you name it. And it would have been repeated over and over and over and over again.

      But it didn’t happen. So Madame Speaker merely said that it happened. And the dinosaur media never challenged her.

    I couldn’t stomach reading the comments or the silly trolls so I found a new love song to Chick-fil-A from Tim Hawkins.

    Mr. Perry was a Chick-Fil-A employee for 29 years and look at his picture. Mr. Perry is BLACK.
