The Liberal Big Three Meltdown!

In a delicious stroke of cosmic justice, it seems that the left, not the earth, is in meltdown stage. The sacred pillars of liberal orthodoxy are in the process of losing their underpinnings and it is not a pretty sight.

With the nomination of Barack and Sarah, three major industries and shibboleths of the left, feminism, racism and the media have lost their clout, big time.

The feminists, who have preached against the ‘social construct’ of male patriarchy and female victimhood have achieved their stated goal, and they’re furious. After 40 years, the feminist mantra that a woman can and should have it all, has come to fruition in Sarah Palin.

There’s only one small problem. Palin doesn’t buy into the feminist line, preferring instead to champion individualism and merit as opposed to the male patriarchy and female victimhood line preferred by feminists. As Peggy Noonan so aptly put it, “she is a feminist not in the Yale Gender Studies sense but the How Do I Reload This Thang way. She is exactly like a normal American feminist and not an Abstract Theory feminist.” When feminists see Sarah Palin, they see a woman. When conservatives see Palin, they see a conservative. Sexist?

Feminists are furiously backtracking on one of their core tenets, questioning whether Sarah Palin has the ability to juggle home and job. Instead of applauding a woman who has it all, they instead question whether she will have time to be VP, what with her family and all. To them I say, be careful what you wish for.

I say the same to the Jacksons and Sharptons of the world who have spent their lives preaching racism. With the nomination of Obama, racism is in the process of becoming a hard sell, even the silent ‘institutional racism’ that has been in vogue these last few years. How will the race baiters raise funds without genuine victims? How will blacks retain their hard won political power, which is based largely on white guilt? Who will pay for black oppression if there isn’t any?

The presidential race of 2008 will go down in history as a turning point – as the pivotal event that exposed the shallowness of liberal policies, institutions and people. A mere 5 months ago, the liberal crusade to save Mother earth appeared to be gaining steam. Now, dissenting voices are starting to be heard, even though liberals had deemed the discussion over.

Progressives were so close to electing their new Messiah. A Messiah who agrees with them that America is the cause of all the world’s ills – that man is the cause of the earth’s(supposed) degradation and that government is the only solution. And now…

Now, it appears that not only are the masses not buying what the left is selling, but have instead shown their stubborn allegiance to traditional values and God, as embodied so well by Gov. Palin. This, despite the herculean efforts by another liberal institution, the media.

The same media, which a study by Media Research Center showed to have been the decisive factor in Obama’s nomination by the Dems, is now having to report that Palin is more popular than both McCain and the Messiah.

Unable to believe they’ve been on the wrong side of history, the media is lashing out in ever more frivolous and blatant attempts to smear Gov. Palin and prop up Obama. Only this time, they’re encountering a backlash.

US Weekly Magazine is losing subscribers due to the vicious smear piece recently published about Palin. A  new website has even been launched to organize a boycott of US Weekly and their advertisers.

More surprisingly, hundreds of small town residents in a small town outside Milwaukee “taunted reporters and TV crews travelling with Sen. John McCain on Friday, chanting “Be fair!” and pointing fingers at a pack of journalists as they booed loudly.” Even Oprah is experiencing a backlash for refusing to have Palin on her show until after the election.

The media, like the rest of the liberal world, can’t understand what is happening. The world-view they’ve held for the last 45 years is under attack. The unthinkable is happening and liberals are furious. The conservative, traditional worldview they thought they had thoroughly invalidated is rearing its ugly head and they can’t understand, much less control, it.

Just as liberals thought they were on the brink of achieving their long sought socialist, man-made utopia, along came Palin. Horror of horrors, she is reaffirming America’s commitment to God over man, capitalism over socialism and the individual over government. All their work is for naught if Palin succeeds.

Gov. Sarah Palin shows that the American dream is available, without government help. She shows that faith in God is more powerful than faith in man. She shows that sexism and racism are indeed constructs, but artificial constructs designed not by old white men, but by young liberal utopians – designed to achieve money and power, not liberation.

The times, they are a changin, but not in the way the left envisioned. The rules are changing as we speak. Because the liberal elites have consistently shown they are incapable of adjusting their world-views to include conservatives, I predict this will be the death of them. I’m smiling.
