First things first: I never supported, nor voted, for Sarah Palin (and neither did I support those who were undyingly opposed to her). Just to start us off, I'm of the "neanderthal" opinion that a woman shouldn't run for public office.
Second, I don't particularly appreciate it when me and my people are assaulted as somehow less than human (because that's exactly what Palin's words infer). So let's take a look at what she said; click on the link, you can either watch the video or read the transcript (or both).
We see that Sarah Palin is a strong feminist (what, are you surprised?), and that Sarah Palin believes me, and also those who believe as I do, to be "neanderthals" who need to "evolve". I remember hearing, two years back, that Palin supported the Creationist view of things, at least in public school classrooms (whether or not this was true). Now we have her verbally assaulting thousands of strong Christians, using Evolutionist terminology. We're "neanderthals" (commonly considered less highly evolved than true humans), and we need to "evolve". Sheesh, Sarah, couldn't you at least insult me with fair terminology? She can't just say she disagrees with me; no, I'm a neanderthal, and before coming to the table of The
Equality of Humanity, I must evolve first. Really, Sarah?
So, to those who support Palin, I would ask them to please look at her own statements. She's a feminist who is attacking conservative Christians, and, at the very least, she's using Evolutionist terminology to do so (it makes one wonder what she really believes about origins?).
Thanks goes to olde.fashioned, who found Doug's post before I did.
