Palin Haters Not Exclusive to Left

Them's Some Kooky Sheep...

I must admit to having read some bizarre conspiracy theories about Sarah Palin, because in seeing what these nuts write, one gets a sense of just how thoroughly out of touch some people have become.  For far too many rank-and-file Republicans, it’s all a cult of personality.  Few are concerned about fundamental principles, to such an extent that they are unable to linger over even the most obvious facts that might stand in opposition to their odd-ball theories.  I have been sent a link to a group of such odd-balls on Facebook, where one may find the most obtuse concoction of cobbled-together propositions embraced by psychological delinquents I’ve seen since the anti-Palin bloggers I have covered in the past.  It’s a veritable nexus of dumb, and it seems to be composed of Romney supporters who seem to believe Sarah Palin is an evil genius, setting up for a 2016 Presidential run in which she expects to face Hillary Clinton in what these brain-addled doorstops term a “mud-wrestling match.”  It would be funny if it weren’t for the fact that they have nearly one-hundred members.

This means there many more deluded, psychologically broken people in Romney’s camp than one might otherwise expect.  Their basic theory?  Sarah Palin is trying to undermine Mitt Romney in 2012 so she can run in 2016, and she’s being aided in that venture by none other than Rupert Murdoch.  Yes, there are certifiable mad-caps in the GOP, too.

Before any of the Palinistas reading this get too excited, I’d like you to have a sample of the intellectual rigor of the people who are positing this theory.  Says one:

“The whole point of Obama care is to take over Health care by creating another government beauracracy. It’s a communist take over of an industry. The people will not benefit from this, because they are not supposed to benefit from it. It is designed to create more liberals who will be working as beuracrats for the communist government. This has nothing to do at all with Massachusets, that’s just their cover to throw people off the trail. It is a communist take over. Communists always have a group of people they oppresss as part of their power grab. Obama care has already selected the first group that they will oppress, those without health care who cannot afford it. They will be given an oppressive …tax, that they cannot afford. This will then be used to garnish wages and confiscate personal property of those who do not pay the penalty. Year after year the debt will grow. I bet they will imprison people who fall into the catagory I described. The beauracrats, hired by their buddies in the government, will over see this oppression. This has nothing at all to do with Massachusets, or even health care, it is merely a vehical to bring communistic practices full circle. Who knows what mandated laws will be implemented once by Obama’s beauracrats, get going? The sky is the limit. Health care is only the vehical, not the goal. It’s just an excuse. What are we seeing already with the millions of dollars being put into the solar energy. It’s the same thing, they are empowering their own as they declare war on us. Has nothing at all to do with Massachusets. And sadly, too many will find out only when it’s too late.”

I kid you not.  This sad person isn’t merely a terrible speller, but is also blinded to reality.  Somebody should tell this young woman that Mitt Romney imposed precisely the kind of system about which she spends most of her time criticizing, and that in fact, Romney-care is the prototype for the system against which she is railing.  Yes, this is an example of the logic you will find in this group of utterly helpless people.

Naturally, you can expect a torrent of useless babble from any group that announces its intentions thus:

“It’s TIME for the Conservatives and the Moderates to UNITE to STOP Sarah Palin from pushing her way into this Presidential Election. Whether through manipulation, deception, or down-right dirty politics via a Brokered Convention, Palin is POISON and always has been. This group is OPEN, we are not speaking to just ourselves and don’t intend to. Join this group, share a link to this page, invite your friends. There is a WEALTH of info here documenting the REAL SARAH.”

Of course, the hits keep coming, because this group of mad-caps is so twisted-up with hatred for Sarah Palin that they can’t even objectively consider the nonsense they’re spewing:

“Regarding the argument that Christie would make a bad VP pick for Romney because Christie woud overshadow Romney, I have this to say:

“To overshaddow someone, you have to do it DELIBERTLY, When that happens, it’s no accident. Anyone who thinks overshadowing is done on accident is a FLIPPIN fool. Decent people with character know when to hold back. FLIPPIN backstabbers never hold back, cause it’s always about THEM!!! People with character know how to make it clear they are NOT number one. Christie has character, unlike the last no account, backstabbin, FLIPPIN quitter!!!!”

If you were to choose to”delibertly” avoid this group, I would understand. The same poster seems to study slow-motion video clips of Sarah Palin, turning every motion of her face into a secret, subliminal message:

“Because this is the Sarah Palin Conspiracy Threory, might as well mention it cause it’s something I have noticed before:

Speaking of Historonic personality disorder and excessive attention seeking, just saw Palin in slow motion licking her lips and heaving as she was being interviewed by Hannity, her eyes got really narrow and then really wide as if she was coming on to him during the interview. I have seen her do this with other men who let her run all over them. It’s like she does it on purpose, not only for control over the interviewer, but for control over the male viewers. Wonder if anyone else has noticed? Oh, and by the way, when Palin kept insisting that she is supporting Romney, because it’s: ABO – Anybody but Obama, and she kept repeating this over and over like she was trying to slap down Romney and degrade him with that, I noticed Hannity didn’t protest or confront her on this. Wonder if the lip licking has anything to do with Hannity’s compliance when it comes to Palin?”

Yes, this is real. I’m not embellishing anything. I couldn’t fake being this stupid, and I don’t believe anybody else could fake it either.  Undeterred by anything even vaguely resembling a fact, this genius continues:

“The reason why the Palinbots are pushing for either Rubio or Jindial as the VP pick for Romney is because of this:

“The reason why the “base” (and I call them that losely, cause I think we all know that they are just a segment with their own selfish agenda, that has nothing to do with real people like us), is pushing for those lackluster two is cause they don’t want to win this time around, they want to throw it for their Imbicial Snow Queen. They know what they are doing, and it ain’t pretty. They can take it their two lackluster ones, and shove it where the sun don’t shine. Sorry for the crudeness, but they’ve earned it.”

Most Palinistas I know wouldn’t want either Rubio or Jindal, never mind “Jindial ,” whomever s/he may be.  If Palinistas had their way, I think most would like to see Allen West as VP.  Of course, the lunacy that pervades this Facebook group is quite stunning, and all the more when you consider this bit:

“The Tea Party is still dreaming of a Brokered Convention. Shame on them!”

This appeared with a link to an article in the Washington Times, in which Tea Party Nation’s Judson Philips is quoted as asking: “Is it too late to switch?”  This remark was made in the aftermath of Eric Fehrnstrom’s remarks about whether Obama-care is a tax or a penalty.  The rabid Romney-bots in this particular Facebook group simply cannot conceive of the thought that Mitt Romney might be seen by the broader base of conservatism as something of a sell-out.

They weren’t satisfied to go after the Tea Party, as they attack Mark Levin for his support of Sarah Palin, and generally regard Palinistas as brain-dead zombies.  Yes, they are leaping to the defense of Mitt Romney from the she-devil Sarah Palin, who they will tell you is a socialist.  That’s right, for these folk, Sarah Palin is a socialist.  Try not to soil your computer screen with spewed coffee as you laugh at these flakes.  I promise, you will read their ‘critiques’ of Governor Palin as very nearly a parody of leftist critiques, and I think this demonstrates my point from earlier Saturday.  If they had been mere Romney-bots, we might not have spotted the fact that these are full-bore kooks every bit as bad as any on the left.  It’s refreshing to have one’s assertions born out within the space of an afternoon.

Editor’s Note: While it is clear that these people claim to be Romney supporters, it is certain they aren’t doing this with the blessing or endorsement of the Romney Campaign.  Then again, he couldn’t tell the SuperPacs what to do when they were bashing Newt Gingrich, either. (Wink Wink) They could also be Obama-shills, attempting to stir up trouble between the Palinistas and Romney-bots, but at least on the surface, these appear to be genuinely nutty Romney supporters.  Go figure.

    Conspiracy theorists don’t need facts to believe their flights of fancy – they invent their own facts.  They then extract a single word from an article or a speaker to prove their imaginations.  It doesn’t matter what the conspiracy is, their contortions in finding “facts” to prove their crazy ideas are always the same.  I personally know many people who I otherwise consider to be conservatives who buy into the media-lies regarding Sarah – mostly the drivel that was cooked up in 2008 and continues to have a life of it’s own.  

    Lacking common sense, intellectual honesty, critical thinking ability, and incapable of simple logic, these folk seem to increasingly inhabit all spheres of our society – from the elites to the simple folk – they are everywhere.

    Seriously, it goes a long way toward explaining how Obama got elected.

    God help us!

    • Joy

      Boy, do you have THAT assessment of our “glorious” body politic totally nailed, Don!!  You must’ve been camping out inside MY brain for a while – I totally agree with your pointing out how the lies & distortions about Palin, having a life of their own now, have managed to fool both the rich & the poor, the young & the old, the GOPe and the Dirty Dems!  We have a long row to hoe, but I’m still confident that the Right will eventually be victorious – and with Sister Sarah leading the charge!!

    “Wow!” is an understatement!

    Dammit – they’ve blown our cover!

    All those years plotting to overthrow the government & usher in “The United Palin Collective Farming States of America The Trotskyite paradise”

    Who betrayed us?

    Was it our double agents down at the secret Ron Paul New Swabia Antarctic base?
    Have they been “turned” before they completing their mission to download the Haunebu design details?

    Those Nazi Bastards! Always the facists seek to undermine the glorious patriotic democratic workers paradise of Palin!

    IMPERIALIST DOGS!

  • Polarbearpapa

    The Romulans have no problems tearing down Sarah Palin…and it appears neither does Mittens himself…

     “Romney makes midcourse communications correction (Re-hires anti-Palin smear peddler Kevin Madden)” Free Republic

    ..you would have thought He was smarter than this…..but what do we expect from a Progressive RINO with a record of Governing like a Democrat….

    • stevethird

       Mitt is daring us not to vote for him. Many will oblige.

      • Polarbearpapa

         True….all he has to do is be himself…that arrogant ,self serving Progressive Mitt that we all know from Massachusetts…..

  • Section 9

    Hey Mark, I haven’t been to this Facebook Full o’ Fail yet, but are you sure this isn’t Malia Litman writing under a nom de plume?

    No, seriously, this sounds like another seriously ingenious idea by the Omega Fraternity from Animal House, er, sorry, the Romney Staff.

    It must be Pledge Week. It’s Mitt’s turn to use the paddle on the pledges again.

  • Clariongoddess56

    Wow!!  It is very telling that the Romneybots and the leftists all think just alike when it comes to Gov Palin.  Her power over them is astonishing. 

  • fb274

    Scrolling through comments a quote from Immoral Minority was quoted.  That’s all you need to know to identify the Palin bashers.  One, Val Henning also friended the crazy wonkoos (father and son) who were indicted and tried for their stalking, harassment and threats to Gov. Palin, her family and associates as well as her attorney.  I am not so certain any of the posters are for Romney as a lot of these are the same names of the water carriers for their great messiah, ‘the won’. old jugears!

      Didn’t read the thread, but you just backed up my suspicions of who these people are.  Geez, they need to get a life.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Eric-Pierce/1522957378 Eric Pierce

    Great commentary, Mark, as usual…

  • blueniner

    Nice piece Mark. I read these Romney crackpots on other blogs all the time with thier anti-Palin rants, one of the most cuckoo posts was that when Sarah is on with Hannity or Greta, she is reading a teleprompter to answer her questions, the poster said I can tell because you can see the reflection of it in her glasses. This is what we are dealing with folks.

  • Polarbearpapa

    I saw this in my readings and thought it fit the context as well as any I have seen by one of the Founders….

     “I suppose, indeed, that in public life, a man whose political
    principles have any decided character and who has energy enough to give
    them effect must always expect to encounter political hostility from
    those of adverse principles.”

    Mark those are real Rombots.

    I have always said they are even more hateful than the libs.

    • CoolChange80

      jason materra is a member of it.

  • Carmtom13

    In posting all this garbage these people are either stuck on stupid and don’t want to get off or showing what a big threat Governor Palin is to them and are very worried. Whoever they supposedly represent must be just as delusional as they are. By what I read they are a cup and saucer short of a full place setting.

  • CoolChange80

    Jason Mattera and John Ziegler are the only two members of the group that I have heard of it is like 82 members mostly crazed Palin hating Romneybots that link up articles of from gryphon’s nutjob site.

  • CoolChange80

    I will be confronting some of the 82 members of this demented site on twitter. I started with materra.

  • Kristy Patullo

    Oh, dear God! Hahaha These people are right up there with the Trig Truthers. I still can’t believe people like this exist.

  • blackbird

    trace their IP address Mark, it will return Sanitarium for the mentally ill.

  • $8266073

    These sound like the old Palinh8ters.  Looks like they are still obsessed with everything Palin and finding a scapegoat for all their life’s anger and disappointments.  Sad.

  • nkthgreek

    If they really need catharsis, they should just go ahead and vote for Mr. Obama.

  • TeaPartyBarbie

    The Romney campaign is full of Palin haters. Indeed, they just hired one Mr. Madden, who is all too happy to trash Gov. Palin on any occasion from her clothes to her nose. Just another reason to dislike Romney.

  • baltzelle

    No surprise that you associate with Ann Coulter and I can imagine several other stale Republicans who are probably in your group.  You are certainly entitled to your opinion but I think you and your group are the problem with our political system just as the Liberal Democrats. You are more interested in the person, old style party and yourself than you are in this Great Country.  Sarah Palin has more patriotism and honor in her pinkie than you do in your whole body.  The only thing Sarah has ever wanted is for this Country and our Government get back to the Constitution and what we stand for.  Truth and Honor!  The important thing this election year is to get Obama out and people in his place who will work to clean up the mess that he has created as well as clean up the fraud caused by corrupt politicians on both sides.   Sarah Palin would be a great President because she doesn’t need or want the position but does want this Country to survive.  She has the common sense, experience and abilitiy to surround herself with people who could get the work done.  You are so stupid to think that looking at someone while they are talking is flirting — have you seen her husband?   AND, IF MCCAIN HAD NOT LISTENED TO THE STALE REPUBLICANS AND LET SARAH VET OBAMA LIKE SHE WAS DOING BEFORE HE STOPPED HER, THERE JUST MAY NOT HAVE BEEN AN OBAMA.  THE ONE PERSON WHO FRIGHTENS OBAMA THE MOST IS SARAH PALIN BECAUSE HE KNOWS SHE IS NOT AFRAID OF HIM AND HE HAS SPENT THOUSANDS TO VET HER AND THERE IS NOTHING TO VET – SARAH PALIN IS AS REAL AS THEY COME!!!

    I think it is more lefties acting as moderates to muddle the pool. They sound leftist, the hate is leftist. One can almost feel the spittle on your face if they were standing in front of you. Classic lefties. That is my thought on this matter, mostly because the Moderates I know are at the very least civil with their dislike of Sarah Palin.
