Camille Paglia, author, staunch liberal feminist and pro-choice advocate, has some interesting comments on the election and Sarah Palin today in her online column at Salon. Thanks to Hot Air. Paglia expresses doubts about the media’s coverage, or lack of it, of several controversies surrounding Obama during his campaign. She says:
In the closing weeks of the election, however, I became increasingly disturbed by the mainstream media’s avoidance of forthright dealing with several controversies that had been dogging Obama — even as every flimsy rumor about Sarah Palin was being trumpeted as if it were engraved in stone on Mount Sinai. For example, I had thought for many months that the flap over Obama’s birth certificate was a tempest in a teapot. But simple questions about the certificate were never resolved to my satisfaction . . .
Paglia also discusses the Ayers non-controversy and says that at first she was aggravated by Clinton’s harping on Ayers during a debate with Obama, and accepted Obama’s explanation of Ayers being just somebody in the neighborhood. Although her concerns about Ayers were “slow in developing,” her doubts were enough to propel her into doing research on her own, even renting the movie “The Weather Underground. She has some interesting observations about Ayers and his wife Bernardine Dohrn, who worked at the same law firm in Chicago as Michelle Obama in the 1990s.
Amazingly enough, Paglia recognizes that the media, with their bias against Palin, were too busy pursuing every single non-issue against her instead of doing proper investigative work on the many questions surrounding Obama’s associates.
Given that Obama had served on a Chicago board with Ayers and approved funding of a leftist educational project sponsored by Ayers, one might think that the unrepentant Ayers-Dohrn couple might be of some interest to the national media. But no, reporters have been too busy playing mini-badminton with every random spitball about Sarah Palin, who has been subjected to an atrocious and at times delusional level of defamation merely because she has the temerity to hold pro-life views.
Most telling was Paglia saying “the shocking level of irrational emotionalism and at times infantile rage was exposed at the heart of current Democratic ideology — contradicting Democratic core principles of compassion, tolerance and independent thought.”
I am truly taken aback that Paglia recognizes the Democratic hatred that spewed forth and surrounded Palin from the time she was chosen by McCain. The liberal left with the help of the media absolutely tore Palin apart piece by piece. The emotion showed by both camps was similar to sharks in a feeding frenzy. Any little tidbit the media could talk about, whether it had a shred of truth or not, was discussed endlessly. Is Trig really her son (gasp!)? Did she want to censor books at the library? She has no experience! She’s a hypocrite! Troopergate! Palin wants creationism taught alongside evolution (horrors!)! Her clothes! Her church prayed for her (terrible!)! She should stay home with her kids – No, it’s okay to work outside the home!
Was all this frothing at the mouth because Palin dared to be a strong pro-life, pro-gun, evangelical candidate went against the Washington establishment and ignited the evangelical base that McCain had not only ignored but dissed, calling “agents of intolerance?” Yes, I absolutely think it was, and Paglia certainly recognizes that much of the antagonism toward Palin was because of Palin’s stance on abortion and the fact that she didn’t graduate from an Ivy League college. Don’t get me wrong, Paglia also places blame on the right for the lack, but some of it is certainly deserved. However, she points out that Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, from Kansas, has a very similar record to Palin, and she was supposedly on Obama’s short list for VP nominee. I suppose it’s just surprising to me to hear this kind of admission from someone on the left.
I am a Jew, and every single one of my ancestors was Jewish. And it does not bother me even a little bit when people call those beautiful lit up, bejeweled trees, Christmas trees.. I don’t feel threatened. I don’t feel discriminated against. That’s what they are: Christmas trees.
It doesn’t bother me a bit when people say, ‘Merry Christmas’ to me. I don’t think they are slighting me or getting ready to put me in a ghetto. In fact, I kind of like it It shows that we are all brothers and sisters
celebrating this happy time of year. It doesn’t bother me at all that there is a manger scene on display at a key intersection near my beach house in Malibu . If people want a creche, it’s just as fine with me as is the Menorah a few hundred yards away.
I don’t like getting pushed around for being a Jew, and I don’t think Christians like getting pushed around for being Christians. I think people who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed around, period. I have no idea where the concept came from that America is an explicitly atheist country. I can’t find it in the Constitution and I don’t like it being shoved down my throat.
Or maybe I can put it another way: where did the idea come from that we should worship celebrities and we aren’t allowed to worship God as we understand Him? I guess that’s a sign that I’m getting old, too. But there are a lot of us who are wondering where these celebrities came from and where the America we knew went to..
In light of the many jokes we send to one another for a laugh, this is a little different: This is not intended to be a joke; it’s not funny, it’s intended to get you thinking.
Billy Graham’s daughter was interviewed on the Early Show and asked her ‘How could God let something like this happen?’ (regarding Katrina) Anne Graham gave an extremely profound and insightful response. She said, ‘I believe God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are, but for years we’ve been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our government and to get out of our lives. And being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly backed out. How can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand He leave us alone?’
In light of recent events… terrorists attack, school shootings, etc. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O’Hare (she was murdered, her body found a few years ago) complained she didn’t want prayer in our schools, and we said OK. Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school. The Bible says thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said OK.
Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn’t spank our children when they misbehave because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr Spock’s son committed suicide). We said an expert should know what he’s talking about. And we said OK.
Now we’re asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don’t know right from wrong, and why it doesn’t bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves. Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out. I think it has a great deal to do with ‘WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.’
Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world’s going to hell Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says. Funny how you can send ‘jokes’ through e-mail and they spread like wildfire but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing. Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace.
Are you laughing yet?
Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you’re not sure what they believe, or what they will think of you for sending it.
Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us. Pass it on if you think it has merit. If not then just discard it… no one will know you did. But, if you discard this thought process, don’t sit back and complain about what bad shape the world is in.
My Best Regards, Honestly and respectfully,
