More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention Part 325

“High-Tech Lynching” Edition

James Lewis, at American Thinker:
“What we are seeing today with Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin is a ‘high-tech lynching,’ just as Clarence Thomas said at his Senate hearing about the way the media abused him with rumors of sexual misbehavior. High-tech lynching. Keep that in mind, because that's who these people are. They don't lynch people by accident, but with a very clear purpose. They are ruthless, and they have no decency. Domestically their purpose is to intimidate you and me, just as the KKK did in the Jim Crow South. Media lynchings create an atmosphere of fear by hanging specific scapegoats from a tree. Watch it happen to Palin, Bachmann, Herman Cain, and everybody who becomes uppity against Obama. That is how the left aims to win a second term that Obama desperately wants.”
Erin Brown, at NewsBusters:
“The media's character assassination of Sarah Palin knows no bounds, as she's been smeared as everything from ‘evil’ to ‘unintelligent.’ But ‘Palin Derangement Syndrome’ is a hereditary disease...”
Andrew Breitbart, on “Fox & Friends”:
“The thing is that Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann represent an existential threat to the Democratic Party the way that 20 years ago Clarence Thomas as a black man represented to liberals and the Democrat Party. The Democratic Party likes to think of itself as the party of minorities, and when in the Republican Party so many women and attractive women and accomplished women rise to the top, it's going to take the media to destroy them because at the end of the day, Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin, you go by the polls, represent what the American people represent on the issues... Well, what you just saw with President Obama they call in tennis an unforced error. What they try and do with Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann is to force errors, to ask gotcha questions. Life for them is a permanent game of Jeopardy where the George Stephanopouloses of the world, he of the Clinton war room, are there to try to make them look stupid on YouTube.”
“Perhaps the president was already thinking ahead to Malia's approaching birthday: She turns 13 on July 4. If Sarah Palin had indeed made the exact same mistake, she would have been ridiculed as a dimwitted bimbo unfit for any office.”
John Sexton, at Verum Serum:
“[Barack Obama]: ‘Listen, Abraham Lincoln helped build the interstate…the intercontinental railroad in the middle of the Civil War because he understood this was going to be important.’ Of course, there was no ‘intercontinental railroad’ being built during the Civil War. We did not build a trestle across the Bering Strait or lay tracks to South America. Abraham Lincoln did support the building of a transcontinental railroad connecting the East Coast to the West Coast... It’s obvious the President stumbled, probably thinking of our modern interstate road system and transposed that onto the transcontinental railroad. But if Sarah Palin or Michele Bachmann had said this, you can bet there would be lots of people pointing out what an embarrassing historical gaffe it was.”
Nicole Coulter, at Conservatives4Palin:
Bring Her Down: How the American Media Tried to Destroy Sarah Palin should be required reading for any Palin supporter.”
Tina Hemond , at Degrees of Moderation:
“The media has exhausted its ability to criticize (but will, of course, keep on trying) Sarah Palin (...try to find [a] specific news article that does not contain slurs – good luck). Palin (or any other female Conservative Candidate...) will face a constant battle from the Press, but Palin has lived through, media stalkers, liars, and crackpots fighting for their fifteen minutes of fame on MSNBC, and is, perhaps, more prepared than any other candidate in the history of the GOP. She also has the wherewithal to stand up and tell it like it is, something that irks those who think they know better than the masses.”
Sandor Balogh, Ph.D., in a letter to the Times Union:
“Palin knows American history (and the English language) better than those journalists, who first reported this perceived error...”
Ed Morrissey, at Hot Air:
“Her PAC supported a number of Republicans in the 2010 midterms, most of whom won their elections in part due to her support. Palin has done as much as anyone has in the past two years for political organization in both grassroots and traditional party structure, all while being ridiculed by media figures like [Mika] Brzezinski, whose main claim to fame is … being on television, and being the daughter of a former National Security Adviser in the Carter administration. If anyone has less standing to make a point about superficial celebritydom on Morning Joe, I’d like to know who it might be.”
myiq2xu, at The Crawdad Hole:
“The [Slate] article goes out of the way to tie Bachmann’s beliefs to Palin, even though Sarah has never said she agreed with the ‘submissive wife’ idea.”
Clayton Cramer:
“What never ceases to amaze me how is ignorant the left is of Christianity. Ephesians 5:21-33 are the verses that leftists (and some misogynistic Christian men) like to quote very selectively: ‘Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.’ Got that? ‘Submit to one another’: that means that both husband and wife have a humble obligation to each other... Sarah Palin as Todd's wife is an entirely different sphere of work from President Sarah Palin. This notion that a Christian woman can't be a strong and effective leader is not Biblical -- the early Church was awash in women performing important roles.”
MarkAmerica, at Palin Promotions:
“Sarah Palin is the real outsider in this race, and Obama and the Democrat party, as well as their numerous shills in the media know it. The Republican establishment knows it, too, and they are as committed as any Democrat to seeing her banished from the beltway.”
Toby Harnden, at The Telegraph:
“Palin, the former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice-presidential candidate has yet to declare she’s in the 2012 race; but during an appearance in Iowa did nothing to dispel the notion that she, too, was running for the White House... With President Barack Obama’s re-election chances looking shakier by the day, the prospect of a President Bachmann or a President Palin – as the first woman to occupy the Oval Office – is suddenly not so outlandish a notion... Establishment Republicans are resolutely sceptical... But it will not be Washington-based strategists and consultants who will be selecting the man, or woman, to take on Obama. If Bachmann or Palin secure enough votes, that will be qualification enough.”
Harris Harrison, at Incumbent Rant:
“I've always known we needed to stay away from the RINOs. I didn't want McCain, but he was put before us, and I voted for him. Really, I voted for Sarah Palin. And, frankly, I'd vote for her again.”
Whitney Pitcher, at Little Blog on the Prairie:
“Governor Palin has taken a stand on every major political issue, often doing so with great prescience and foresight. She questioned the Fed's decision to engage in a second round of quantitative easing, warning that it would cause inflation and higher energy prices, which it has. She has spoken out on a variety of foreign policy issues as well, from Iran's nuclear proliferation and lack of support for Democracy to concerns about the START nuclear treaty with Russia, to a strong stance with Israel and warning of the threat of an Egypt controlled by the Muslim brotherhood. She has given speeches to business leaders on Long Island and in India, spoken to various trade shows, pro life events, and tea parties. She has traveled to Israel and met with Prime Minister Netanyahu and traveled to Haiti to do some humanitarian work with Samaritan's Purse. Her road less traveled has taken her all across America and across the world, and Lord willing, it will lead her to a position held by only forty-four other individuals in America’s 235 year history.”
Exit Quote: Jeremiah 20:10, in The New American Bible:
“But the LORD is with me, like a mighty champion: my persecutors will stumble, they will not triumph. In their failure they will be put to utter shame, to lasting, unforgettable confusion.”
