More sick and disgusting smears by the Left of Sarah Palin, this one now at Salon.com by Anti-Semite Juan Cole. There really is no bounds as to how far these despicable people will go to compare anything to anyone, even if it means comparing her to the same vile scum filth that attacked us on 9-11, and who’s been vowing to destroy our way of life for longer than we can all remember.
John McCain announced that he was running for president to confront the “transcendent challenge” of the 21st century, “radical Islamic extremism,” contrasting it with “stability, tolerance and democracy.” But the values of his handpicked running mate, Sarah Palin, more resemble those of Muslim fundamentalists than they do those of the Founding Fathers. On censorship, the teaching of creationism in schools, reproductive rights, attributing government policy to God’s will and climate change, Palin agrees with Hamas and Saudi Arabia rather than supporting tolerance and democratic precepts. What is the difference between Palin and a Muslim fundamentalist?Lipstick.
And he doesn’t stop there…Apparently Palin’s policies are comparable to the brutal, Islamofascist Sharia state of Iran.
Palin’s stance is even stricter than that of the Parliament of the Islamic Republic of Iran. In 2005, the legislature in Tehran attempted to amend the country’s antiabortion statute to permit an abortion up to four months in case of a birth defect. The conservative clerical Guardianship Council, which functions as a sort of theocratic senate, however, rejected the change. Iran’s law on abortion is therefore virtually identical to the one that Palin would like to see imposed on American women, and the rationale in both cases is the same, a literalist religious impulse that resists any compromise with the realities of biology and of women’s lives. Saudi Arabia’s restrictive law on abortion likewise disallows it in the case or rape or incest, or of fetal impairment, which is also Gov. Palin’s position. ‘
Only a very extreme and distorted view of the world could drive someone this far off the track of sanity. The abundance of irrational thought and complete stupidity is staggering.
