Jonah Goldberg wrote about this in 2008. This may be forgotten in the interim, but let's refresh our memories of how deranged the Feminists Left is.
Feminist author Cintra Wilson writes in Salon (a house organ of the angry left) that the notion of Palin as vice president is "akin to ideological brain rape." Presumably just before the nurse upped the dosage on her medication, Wilson continued, "Sarah Palin and her virtual burqa have me and my friends retching into our handbags. She's such a power-mad, backwater beauty-pageant casualty, it's easy to write her off and make fun of her. But in reality I feel as horrified as a ghetto Jew watching the rise of National Socialism."And that's one of the nicer things she had to say. Really.On Tuesday, Salon ran one article calling Palin a dominatrix ("a whip-wielding mistress") and another labeling her a sexually repressed fundamentalist no different from the Muslim fanatics and terrorists of Hamas. Make up your minds, folks. Is she a seductress or a sex-a-phobe?But this any-weapon-near-to-hand approach is an obvious sign of how scared the Palin-o-phobes are.Gloria Steinem, the grand mufti of feminism, issued a fatwa anathematizing Palin. A National Organization for Women spokeswoman proclaimed Palin more of a man than a woman. Wendy Doniger, a feminist academic at the University of Chicago, writes of Palin in Newsweek: "Her greatest hypocrisy is in her pretense that she is a woman."
The sad thing is that this thing is effective because for every Feminist head-chopper there is a small army of "journalists" who spread the message in kinder, gentler ways. The analogy is the Muslim community which is looking to see who is going to come out on top and is willing to give the crazies, the bombers, the throat slitters the benefit of the doubt and explain that they are the real victims.
