More on Sarah Palin and the fear that the left has of her.
The Wilding of Sarah Palin
By Robin of Berkeley
When I was in college, I read a book that changed my life. It was Susan Brownmiller’s tome, Against Our Will: Men, Women, and Rape, which explained rape as an act of power, not just lust. What I found particularly chilling was the chapter on war — how rape is used to terrorize a population and destroy the enemy’s spirit.
While edifying, the book magnified the vulnerability I already felt as a female. Fear of rape became a constant dread, and I sought a solution that would help shield me from danger.
Sarah Palin and the low ebb of the cultural left
By Claude Sandroff
No serious observer or reader could ever label the former governor as our Pangloss of the North. Sarah Palin’s view of politics and of life itself is maturely tragic, as it should be for a true conservative.
Starting with a broad ranging, 5,000-plus word Facebook Note, then her recent Hong Kong address to an international investment group, and in more detail in “Going Rogue,” she explains again and again that the very essence of “common sense conservatism” is a recognition of the limits placed on the mutability of human nature. Government can do only so much. We have to figure out, as best we can, how to muddle through the rest.
Free speech silenced yet again. At two universities. I thought they were all for diverse thought, etc. What a load of BS. No wonder America is going down the path of destruction. All the college grads are morons. OK, maybe not all. The majority that come out of these indoctrination camps sure as hell are though.
