From the “Mountain out of a Molehill” files comes the story of how outraged the left is over the picture of Trig Palin standing on the family dog.
“OUTRAGEOUS!” scream the ninnies on the left:
“It’s odd that anyone — let alone a mother — would find it appropriate to post such a thing, with no apparent sympathy for the dog in the photo.”
whines PETA President Ingrid Newkirk.
“Then again, PETA, along with everyone else, is used to the hard-hearted, seeming obliviousness of this bizarrely callous woman.”
adds Newkirk, whose organization slaughters kittens.
And there was more:
She pointed to an interview Palin gave in 2008 at a farm while turkeys were slaughtered in the background as an example of past differences between the animal rights group and the former vice presidential candidate.
Anyone who’s ever lived a Thanksgiving knows turkeys are never slaughtered for food. God forbid.
The so-called “Friends of Animals” piled on:
“It’s no surprise to Friends of Animals that Sarah Palin is so insensitive she thinks a Black Lab should be tolerant of a child who isn’t told to not put his full weight on top of the dog’s back by standing on him,” President Priscilla Feral said in a statement. “How lazy of Sarah Palin not to move the dog out of the way and teach her child the right lessons.”

Ironically, PETA had no such contempt for Ellen DeGeneres, PETA’s Woman of the Year in 2009, who once posted this image:
Not one to suffer idiocy well, Sarah Palin fired back:
Palin pointed out that PETA has never said anything about a photo the organization’s “Woman of the Year” Ellen Degeneris posted of a little girl similarly using a dog as a booster to reach the sink. She also noted that PETA was also conveniently silent when President Barack Obama admitted to having actually eaten dog meat.
She continued the pounding:
Aren’t you the same anti-beef screamers blogging hate from your comfy leather office chairs, wrapped in your fashionable leather belts above your kickin’ new leather pumps you bought because your celebrity idols (who sport fur and crocodile purses) grinned in a tabloid wearing the exact same Louboutins exiting sleek cowhide covered limo seats on their way to some liberal fundraiser shindig at some sushi bar that features poor dead smelly roe (that I used to strip from our Bristol Bay-caught fish, and in a Dillingham cannery I packed those castoff fish eggs for you while laughing with co-workers about the suckers paying absurdly high prices to party with the throw away parts of our wild seafood)? I believe you call those discarded funky eggs “caviar”.
I am a lifelong dog owner. I can hardly remember a time when I did not have a dog. I love dogs. Our kids all stood on the larger dogs and laid on our dogs and pulled their ears and poked them. The dogs loved the kids. This “outrage” is pure crap. It’s politics, pure and simple. It bald hypocrisy. If not for double standards, the left would have no standards. Even an idiot can see that the Palin dog is not in any discomfort and if the dog truly were being hurt I guarantee you it would move.
The fact that that dog stays right there is testament to both the dog and the family. That dog is one of the family and is treated as such.
When I read the asinine comments from PETA, FoA and the left wingers at Politico, a couple of things become immediately apparent. Most of the dimwitted comments come from people who 1. don’t have kids, 2. don’t own a dog and never have, and 3. they are frequently adolescents who know everything about everything without the benefit of experienced anything.
Sarah should have had Trig stand on a pile of aborted fetuses.
The left would have cheered. PETA would have made Palin Woman of the Year 2015.
Did I mention I belong to PETA?
People Eating Tasty Animals, that is.
@Rich Wheeler: How, exactly, are you measuring intelligence? By scholastic measure? That would be difficult, since Obama’s are locked away forever, so we can’t measure by that. By accomplishment? I would say Palin, as Governor of Alaska, even the truncated term, was far and away more successful than Obama has been (while Palin faced opposition, Obama has the media and Hollywood to gloss over his brutal failures) as President. Palin even could withstand the scrutiny of her emails while Obama redacts his entire life. How about by gaffes? I mean, actual real gaffes, not what the left (or right for that matter) makes of them. I would say Palin comes out on top, with Obama’s 57 states, “corps”, inventing anectdotes to justify his agenda, assuming he could lie with impunity while there exists such a thing as video tape and the internet and his overall arrogance, assuming he will suffer no public opinion ill-effects. That’s pretty stupid.
I would have to go with Palin, based on what we know.
@Bill: Bill Thanks for your input and vote.
Sorry we can’t use the ‘count’ of someone who does not possess that ability. Also a little short on reading comp, I didn’t say I didn’t vote. I said I didn’t vote for someone that can’t read, which was directed toward the muslim in office.
You need to relinquish the tallyer’s job to someone that can count.
what a benchmark. But then, beauty is only skin deep.
Such as saluting the Corpse man with a coffee cup in his hand. Right Rich?
@Redteam: I’m gonna put you back in the SP column.O.K?
Lets get more participation. Dr. J. can oversee and confirm the vote. Not a partisan bone in his body. Ouch.
@Redteam: “Beauty is only skin deep.” you say.
Thank you RT, for describing Sarah so perfectly.
But the ugly goes all the way to the bone. And when it comes to the ladies of the Democratic Party, remember the wise words of Ron White: “You can’t fix stupid.”
The sad part is those Dim ladies don’t know they need to be fixed.
Can’t stay on topic huh? Been listening to BHO too much, maybe it’s your fascination of him saluting the Corps-man with the styrofoam cup that has you baffled. Remember, right hand, salute………
Ah, yes. Proper presidential salutes… We should all probably cut them both a little slack on that point.
@Greg: The most important point is that persons in civilian clothes, including all the presidents, are not supposed to salute military personnel. (yes, I know it was started by Ronald Reagan, and it was wrong then and now. )
@Redteam: If you know this why are you singling out BHO?
“fascination of him saluting.” Been listening to Sarah too much?
Because he’s our first muslim, non-citizen president. I really probably should pick on Slick, he’s our first certified draft dodger president.
@Redteam: To borrow from RR “There you go again RT.”
@Rich Wheeler:I believe in credit where credit due. Both of them earned their titles. Not too many are ‘certified’ draft dodgers, actually guilty of a felony.
@Redteam: For the record. None of Clinton’s actions re the draft were illegal. He broke no laws civil or military. Guilty of a felony?–Was he convicted of something?
Obama a “non-citizen Muslim”–Your radical right is showing again RT. I’ve accepted you wear that tag proudly.
Perjury is kind of a crime. Perjury before a grand jury is kind of a naughty thing. Clinton was found guilty of perjury and impeached but, of course, Democrats don’t feel a Democrat committing perjury is any kind of a bad thing, so they let him off the hook.
@Bill: Sorry Bill but Slick Willie was never found guilty of perjury or any other felony as RT lays claim. A House (correction) indictment. That’s it.
Any other BHO VS SP voters?
Just spent 15 fun filled minutes reading Palin gaffes. She really is a hoot.
It will take a helluva lot longer to read the list of Slick Willie’s gaffs, and crimes. How many women did he rape? You don’t have to be convicted of a felony to have committed one. Failure to report for induction when ordered is a felony, whether you are tried and convicted for it is not germane to whether or not you committed the felony. He might not have been convicted of Perjury, but there is some reason he permanently lost his law license (pretty sure it was related to perjury) Draft dodger clear and simple. Perjuror? Obviously. Felon? to the world, yes. To Rich, his idol.
@Rich Wheeler: Well I guess we will just have to wait and see how slick willie evades the storm brewing from “Little St. James” (island that is)! Multiple trips to the island and no sex with underage sex slaves – sayeth slick willie. NOT! Oh but do I hope the hildabeast runs for potus. Game on!
I do suspect that Little James might just be what derails her freight train. I don’t think Her and her daughter would agree to all the stories that would come out about ” Slick and the Young Girls of Little St James”
