Hypocrisy

Simply put, girls, Republicans are FINALLY waking up. Tired of being bullied for the last eight years, awoken by the unbelievable treatment of Sarah Palin, we have had enough


I heard it said best today by a Fox News contributor: "Democrats lecturing Republicans on rage is a little like O.J. Simpson lecturing us on domestic violence!" The treatment of President George Bush these past eight years has been horrific--never in American history has such treatment of a Commander-In-Chief been allowed to go unpunished, and yet we have Democrats screaming outrage at the anger of Republicans! It's quite humorous, really. The hypocrisy, if it weren't so sad, would be quite enjoyable to watch.

Do I advocate violence? NO WAY!  However, I think it's about time Republicans woke up and stood for what we believe in, and in most cases that's exactly what is happening. The other side just can't take a small dose of their own medicine.

I think rage on both sides is a little childish, but I can't help but to disagree with how GW has been treated for the past eight years. There are some crazies on the left (and they seem to blog here all the time) who do say ignorant rageful (if that's a word) thing, but I have never heard that type of rhetoric at a political rally like I have these past weeks at the McCain/Palin rallies. It wouldn't have been so bad had it not been racist expletives yelled out, or this fear driven rage that McCain and Palin seem to incite. Rage has always been there on both sides, the Liberals during Vietnam and the Conservatives during the Civil Rights movement and they both still act as stupidly today as the did then, the problem is that in a presidential or congressional rally I have never seen this type of ignorance. It's not about "liberals" being hypocritical, it's about what type of rage has been expressed. Rage at the idiotic policies of both sides is one thing, racial, ethnic, or religious rage is, as Palin put it, "something else."

Why the insane, irrational hatred for Sarah Palin? Ignorant celebrities make insane comments .. Matt Damon worried Palin thinks there were dinosaurs 4,000 years ago. Woody Allen spouting “It would be a disgrace and a humiliation if Barack Obama does not win”. Sandra Bernhard’s hideous rant. Rosie O’Donnell’s ridiculous comments. Madonna’s hate-filled outburst. Rage on display on the View. What are they really afraid of? I’m guessing they are terrified of Palin. She is a threat to their cultural agenda. An affront to their values! A woman who didn’t have an abortion!!! We might notice that those who have claimed to be for women’s rights, are truly just for liberal women’s rights. They have to tear her down before she infects the rest of the country with her radical ideals. Maybe they are afraid to find out that lots of us agree with Sarah Palin!

You're right, Tami, those photos and exhibitions on Michelle Malkin's site are disgusting. However, they're a LOT different than people at a McCain/Palin rally shouting "Terrorist" and other epithets that go unanswered by the candidates. If Palin were honorable, she would chasten those who do this. McCain at least had the decency to rebuke those who were attacking Obama. I must say it certainly increased my respect for him!

However, I have to disagree with your statement "...never in American history has such treatment of a Commander-In-Chief been allowed to go unpunished..." Perhaps you aren't old enough to remember the constant barrage of mistreatment that Bill Clinton was subjected to, none of which was ever proved despite the best efforts of several members of Congress. I think if you compare the two administrations side-by-side, you'll find that not only was Bush treated to far less vitriol than was Clinton, but that most of what Bush was accused of was true! Pres. Clinton was exonerated - far more decisively that was Sarah Palin's troopergate event.

I'm a Christian and I am not a fan of Sarah Palin. I think she lacks the experience and knowledge to be presidential. Yes, she would be wonderful to sit down and have a chat with, but I have a ton of friends that are wonderful people to sip coffee with and that doesn't qualify them as a good presidential canidtate.

Christina said...

Just keep spreading the news, Ladies! You're doing great!
Let me know if there is ANYTHING that I can do to help.
Pressing On,
Christina

snowden said...

Thanks so much for all you do. The world needs to know what a wonder and blessing Sarah Palin truly is! I appreciate all your research.

Charity said...

Yes! I am so tired of being apologetic for my views and for being a hard working successful woman. Enough is enough!

Conservative women need to be more vocal and proud of who we are.

Thanks Tami for keeping us informed. We spent the morning at church just praying for our country and this election. I belong to an AOG church and we are taking a beating on the internet.

I get it, it's just a double standard. It's ok for dems to do it, but Republicans need to be silent. I understand.

lmtamayo1 said...

I commend the work that you women are doing on supporting your views and your candidate.

My brother was diagnosed with Lupus 3 years ago at the age of 23. Until you've walked in the shoes of a family member with such a devistating disease, it is easy to say no to the research. Let us not forget that there are alternatives that will never be explored until an open minded president makes it so. The umbilical cord is discarded at birth yet can potentially be a life line for myself and other families going through such heartache. God forbid if anything ever happened to your loved ones, wouldn't you do anything in your power to keep them alive? A Pro-Life position is for an individual to make, not the government. Stem Cell Research is a moral obligation that must be met. God is giving us an opportunity to make a real change and save millions of lives.

wildlifer5 said...

For it to be a double standard Democratic candidates would have to incite the crowds like Palin and McCain have done. I've seen no evidence that every happened.

That's no excuse for anyone's behavior, but it points to a standard, or lack of standards, of leadership.

Just Jules said...

I have two points to make, neither which have much to do with this original post, except the title.

It was determined that Sarah Palin violated the Ethics Act by a panel of 10 republicans and 4 democrats. For two days she has been declaring herself "cleared". I understand the nuance of the fact that she did not violate any laws in dismissing him, but she was still found guilty of ethics violations. Why is it okay for her to be either purposefully misleading the status of their findings or lying? Its either one or the other.

None of us can see into the hearts of either candidate or their running mates. I think it is a little short-sighted to simply hear that a candidate is anti-abortion and throw your full support behind them.

No candidate is going to encompass all of the issues one may agree with, but is abortion really the standard by which we determine who is best to lead the country?

I just ask that as Christians, are you looking at these candidates with rose tinted glasses simply by virtue of what church they attend or what social issues they defend?

I often see this WWJD bumper sticker on cars, and during this whole election process I have wondered that...would Jesus stand by a party that allowed people to yell racial slurs, "terrorist", or "treason." Would Jesus approve of the Sarah Palin slandering Barack Obama? Would Jesus approve of this "give them a taste of their own medicine" mentality? I thought the words were more along these lines: "You have heard that it was said, 'An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.' But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if someone wants to sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well. If someone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles. Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you."
—Matthew 5:38-42, NIV

I'm a little confused with the entirety of this blog. I understand being pro-life... life is an amazingly beautiful, precious creation that some unfortunately take for granted. I understand your satisfaction in Sarah Palin running as McCain's V.P nominee. She holds many, if not all, of your same pro-life ideals. But what about Sarah Palin as an avid hunter? Is an animals life that less important than a humans?
An animal that is fully alive and functioning as a part of this earth has a much higher brain capacity and understanding of pain than that of an unborn child. I am not saying that that is reason for abortion, I am saying that that is reason for
not supporting animal cruelty-- which Sarah Palin so clearly does.
I understand hunting as a means of survival-- we all must eat. But there are ethical ways of going about this. Who eats wolf meat? I have never heard of such a thing. Sarah Palin supports the aerial hunting and killing of wolves. But for what reason; As a trophy of death?

Killing just to kill? How is this ethical? Is Sarah Palin truly pro-life?

btperi said...

Tami,

The same people who tore apart Bill Clinton for eight years are the ones who now protest any disagreement with President Bush. The label anyone who dares to disagree with this administration's policies as "Bush haters" and "unpatriotic".

In fact, there is strong disagreement with the policies of this administration, who happens to have one man who is in the role of leader. It is no different then the viewpoints opposing previous administrations.

I do believe the current President knew enough about history to be able to expect there would not be unanimous support of his views and policies.

You've been hearing that he is subject to this massive tide of hate, but in fact, you will have a hard time finding the views expressed that you hear about except from some pretty extreme people to whom no one pays attention anyway.

PepperGreen82 said...

What utter disregard for reality. You guys live in this small little world of yours thinking that everything is fine and dandy. We're talking about the vice-presidency here, not about whether you'll get a buck or two discounts from your local thrift store. Any SENSIBLE AND EDUCATED person will say she's utterly UNQUALIFIED to even run for vice-president, let alone BE one. Well i guess when you guys agree that "the bailout package is about health care and...and trade....and has to be about job creation too" then i guess you're on the right track. Its clueless redneck americans like you that are driving this economy down. What a laughing stock.

Keep you the good work girl. i just wanted you to know my mom has been sick and fell. I am leaving for Louisiana today. I will miss your blog,but will have to depend on FOX.
I am also asking you sweet group to pray for my mom.
thanks,Brenda

Just an observation from across the pond;

All candidates love their country, believe in the strength of their faith and are neither mysogonists nor racists. This is as it should be when choosing the leader of the free world.

I think if you are looking to to find the source of the vitriol, it would be of value to look at the people around the candidates who maintain their power year after year without the need for a vote, and whose interest is the power of their part and not the debate or the policy.

I know that Obama, McCain, Palin and Biden are the faces of the campaigns, but think it would be naive to think they truly believe a lot of the things they are accused of saying.

McCain is a war hero, Palin is a working mum who has fought oil companies, Obama is great example of just how great the US is and the opportunities available and Biden is a charismatic and professional diplomat.

You can be proud of ALL these great people!

Whoever wins, we'll still love you guys (and so will everyone else except France:-),) so breathe deeply and exhale...only a couple of weeks to go - then it's back to being one country again!

Much love,

Blighty

I dont think Palin has been treated any differently than any other candidate or politican. They are all under intense scrutiny. Thats just the way it is.

Lest you forget Clinton was lambasted for four years. I like Bush, he makes me laugh, because he is so goofy, but to me he has been an embarassment as a president.

Although she must have something to have gotten where she is, Palin lacks knowledge. Answering really important questions is too difficult for her. I take issue with that. You need to know what is going on. You need to understand the issues. It isnt optional for that position.

Apparently they say she exceeded expectations in her debate? The expectations were so low, mediorcity is now considered meeting expectations? That scares me.

When asked a question, she said she wasnt going to answer it the way the moderator wanted. What is that? If that was a kid in school, they would have failed the test.

Here is a woman running for the Vice President of the United States and this is acceptable?

Personally, I do not believe in abortion, but I believe in womens rights. God forbid something happened to one of my daughters, I would like her to have a choice. I think that is only fair.People have fought long and hard in this country for their rights.

Its not about her family or about her being a "soccer" mom, its about being the Vice President of the United States.

To cjc..I dont think the celebrities are afraid of Palin. I just think they see things differently. Perhaps they have seen more of the world than the average American. Perhaps, they see something you or I dont.

There is a world out there beyond the church and the conservative views of how life should be. I think the God we serve is a lot more forgiving, fleixble and loving than the closed minded, patriarh that has been contrived by mans ego.

I understand differences in opinion. We are all different. I just need to see some intelligence to be able to respect those differences, I havent seen or heard any yet.

Please proove me wrong!!! Let me hear something intelligent from your side ladies.

team1bear said...

As a long term, self-professed, liberal who would never support Ms. Palin I still find the unwarranted personal attacks aimed at Ms. Palin and her family disgusting and reprehensible. Team bear

"Please proove me wrong!!! Let me hear something intelligent from your side ladies."

Dawn,
It's not "proove". It should read: "prove".
Furthermore, there should be a comma placed immediately after "side" and "ladies" should be capitalized.

How's that for intelligent?

"The treatment of President George Bush these past eight years has been horrific--never in American history has such treatment of a Commander-In-Chief been allowed to go unpunished"

Yeah, well, President Bush is the most unpopular president in modern American history. No president has ever had a higher disapproval rating in any CNN or Gallup Poll; in fact, this is the first time that any president's disapproval rating has cracked the 70 percent mark, so why does this surprise you? Even the father of modern conservatism, William F. Buckley, found himself parting ways with President Bush. Towards the end of his life, Buckley began to distance his movement from the Bush administration.

michael said...

I don't think Palin has been treated any differently than any other candidate or politician. . . . really Dawn?

Haven't read that Sen Biden doesn't know the full role of the vice president? As well he didn't know which article of the constitution refers tot that role.
http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,433314,00.html

You might think big deal . . . but then Gov Palin did know the answer to that question and she was able to elaborate on it.

Saying she isn't intelligent just means you are not really listening to what is going on. The mainstream media has been trashing her as the Obama campaign, however she has proven to be a very successful Governor and I don't think idiots get elected as governor. To say so insults the intelligence of all the Alaskans that voted for her.

No one says you have to like her, but have the good sense to inform yourself.

As for not answering a question in the debate. She was in her right to not answer. The moderator, Gwen Ifill, has a book coming out early next year,"Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama." She has everything to gain from Obama winning the election. Most people who reason in a bipartisan way have suggested she should not have been allowed to moderate such an important event. The professional thing for Ifill would have been to step down and let someone else moderate to remove all doubt of impartiality. In Gov. Palin's position I too would have answered at my desire. It goes to show that she is indeed a strong woman who can decide for herself and won't be pushed around.

Obama NOT for president

eandt's mom said...

Dear Tami,
Thank you so much for your blog! I am so happy to see positive articles and statements written about the McCain/Palin ticket. The media has treated her so harshly and I just can't believe what people are saying and writing about her and about McCain. I am looking forward to reading more in your blog and commenting on different topics. I found out about your blog on CNN, is there any way your blog could be featured on other news channels (Fox, MSNBC). Blessings on you and your family, and thank you again, I will be recommending people to your web site!

kimberly said...

This is the first time I have been to your blog and the link to the hate filled images of McCain. I have never in my life seen anything so disgraceful as the image of McCain being called a Warmongor. I'm a veteran I have been to Iraq twice and will more then likely return to it once again. For the Dems that read this you need to remember who gives you, your freedoms. It is not the elected officals it is the soldier who stands his post. It was not the Declaration of Independence that gave us our freedom but the soldiers who fought for it. We're losing soldiers everyday and it seems like we never gain any ground. Look at it this way we took the fight to them so they would stay off our soil. So you can protest in peace with no road side bombs near by. John McCain is a veteran and a POW for that alone he should have the respect of every American. The other thing is he was a soldier and trust me no soldier wants war, we are just the few willing to defend our land.

Cheri said...

Thank You ladies, for supporting Sarah Palin. Everytime I get discouraged by the incredibly biased media, I come here, and get refreshed. She is good, she is just what this country needs. Morals, values, and common sense are the most important thing any candidate can possess. No amount of education can provide them. After all, all Presidents and VP's are learning as they go, so they need to be able to determine right from wrong when making important decisions. Hopefully there are enough people in this country who can do the same so we can get the right people elected.

n.e.s.t. of the west

get your facts. you are dead wrong.

Postergirl said...

Tami, what are the facts on Palin's wolf hunting program? Wasn't she shut down on the $150 bounty per cut off paw? Anyway, you said n.e.s.t. of the west was dead wrong. I can understand you don't agree with the opinion, but I'm not sure where she/he is 'dead wrong'. I don't agree with all of her/his post as far as animal life equating human life in value, but I don't know where she/he is wrong on the facts of Palin's cruelty to animals as it pertains to the wolf program (the wolves are shot from the air, after being chased, and are near exhaustion, and the shooters often do not kill immediately, so the wolf suffers). Her entire program on hunting wildlife and the rights of the state vs. anyone else, is pretty extreme. Do you disagree with that and if so, why?
