Sarah Palin: If You Don't Support Me, Gals, You're Going to Hell

“There’s a place in Hell reserved for women who don’t support other women.” — Sarah Palin, October 4 2008

Yes, you got that right: women, you’re going to Hell if you don’t vote for Sarah Palin.

The underlying principle: people should vote for other people who were born into the same group… or they will go to Hell.

Further applications of the Palin principle:

There’s a place in Hell reserved for men who don’t vote for other men.
There’s a place in Hell reserved for whites who don’t vote for other whites.
There’s a place in Hell reserved for Christians who don’t vote for other Christians.
There’s a place in Hell reserved for people who vote on the basis of policies.
There’s a place in Hell reserved for people who vote on the basis of ideas.
There’s a place in Hell reserved for people who think.

    Clearly Palin’s comment is specifically about women, so the further applications are just mimics in terms of language used.

    Women need to support women because we’re not strong enough, solo, to have our own ideas. The only chance people with vaginas have is to hold together like a single organism. All women = the value of 1 man.

    I think she might mean that her opposing a woman’s right to choice means she’s going to Hell. That’s pretty depressed talk.

    Well, I’d call them ideological parallels, not linguistic mimics. It’s about supporting someone because of categorical tribalism, not because they have good ideas or bad ideas for how to run the country.

    Interesting the perversion thought one would have to force inoder to make the connections you made above, Every day I am astonished by how fetid and warped your thought process is jim.

    The article below:

    “At a rally on Saturday in California, Sarah Palin offered up a rather jarring argument for supporting the Republican ticket. “There’s a place in Hell reserved for women who don’t support other women,” the Alaska Governor said, claiming she was quoting former Clinton Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.

    The statement came after Palin had recounted a “providential” moment she experienced on Saturday: “I’m reading on my Starbucks mocha cup, okay? The quote of the day… It was Madeleine Albright, former Secretary of State [crowd boos] and UN ambassador. … Now she said it, I didn’t. She said, ‘There’s a place in Hell reserved for women who don’t support other women.’”

    Actually, Albright didn’t say that. The accurate quote is, “There’s a place in Hell reserved for women who don’t help other women.” (Sources made the same point to CBS’s Scott Conroy.)”

    Only someone with a bias beyond the pale, would find the difference between the words “support and help” so meaningful. In addition, metastasize it into the hateful thing above. Jim you can hate anything you want, just be more honest about it.

    Once again the quote is completely out of the original context. Your mind must be an interesting place to live in, filled with paranoia and a world riddled with imaginary Christian persecution of people like you( the only ones who can think clearly and see the immanent danger) who are so superior. Does the word bedlamite have a special meaning for you?

    Hahhhahahhhhha

    It’s a twisted wreck of smoldering metal festooned with the entrails of rotting corpses from the long dead past. Lighten up dude!
