Sarah Palin deserves the Congressional Gold Medal. The award is given to a civilian who “performs an outstanding deed or act of service to the security, prosperity and national interest of the United States.”
No one in recent memory has ticked off the so-called liberal Hollywood Left more than the mighty huntress herself.
Aaron Sorkin, Hollywood movie and television writer, compares the TLC series Sarah Palin’s Alaska to a snuff film. In a HuffPo attack on the “phony pioneer girl” Sorkin is driven to near madness by a woman who dares to be politically incorrect. After all, PC has been the Left’s weapon of choice in shutting down the opposition.
Now they’ve come up against an Artemis who can shoot game, gut fish, birth a brood and become Governor. But that’s not what makes them go psycho -no, Palin has committed a worst sin against the Left than just being one of those “faux-macho shitheads” that hunt and populate the earth. She has the audacity to talk back.
Sorkin immediately quotes Palin from her Facebook page in his opening; he, like his fake-feminist cohorts do not like women who won’t back down:
‘Unless you’ve never worn leather shoes, sat upon a leather chair or eaten meat, save your condemnation.’
You’re right, Sarah, we’ll all just go f**k ourselves now.
The Hollywood writer continues to give us a tour through the bad neighborhood of the leftist mind – it’s a scary place.
Sorkin offers no cogent argument against hunting, rather he places Palin alongside dog-torturer Michael Vick:
You weren’t killing that animal for food or shelter or even fashion, you were killing it for fun. You enjoy killing animals. I can make the distinction between the two of us but I’ve tried and tried and for the life of me, I can’t make a distinction between what you get paid to do and what Michael Vick went to prison for doing.
Then as if in some attention-deficit disorder moment he forgets the Vick comparison and states:
And you didn’t just do it for fun and you didn’t just do it for money. That was the first moose ever murdered for political gain.
Which is it, Mr. Sorkin, fun or political gain? If the latter you might go back to 2004 twelve days before the election when your man John Kerry snuffed out a goose to show the “shitheads” that he was just one of them.
Next the poor, irrational writer has to stave off the critics by getting his past drug use out into the open, a necessary move in the leftist playbook:
Let me be the first to say that I abused cocaine and was arrested for it in April 2001. I want to be the first to say it so that when Palin’s Army of Arrogant Assholes, bereft of any reasonable rebuttal, write it all over the internet tomorrow they will at best be the second.
Sorkin also uses the words “hypocritical”and “hypocrisy” throughout the piece in reference to himself.
I’m able to make a distinction between you and me without feeling the least bit hypocritical. I don’t watch snuff films and you make them.
Drugs, hypocrisy and snuff films? Sounds about right in the leftist world where personal preferences get projected outward onto their enemies. But the real mind-bending revelation appears halfway down when Sorkin admits what traditionalists have always known. So-called liberals like animals better than people:
I get happy every time one of you faux-macho shitheads accidentally shoots another one of you in the face.
For moose-loving Sorkin, maiming and killing humans, as long as they are conservative Republicans and/or in the womb (he’s pro-choice)makes him “happy,” otherwise he will go all out in a berserk attack defending his kind.
Sarah Palin may or may not run for President of the United States but she has performed an “outstanding deed for her country.”
Good hunting, Sarah.
