Why 'Game Change' Producer Tom Hanks Must Destroy Sarah Palin
I've always had respect for Oscar-winner Tom Hanks. He came across as the Jimmy Stewart of our era. My best Christmas memories with my daughter involve his film "The Polar Express" and a cup of hot cocoa.
His "Band of Brothers" HBO mini-series even played a role in my much publicized transition from Left to Right, which was really a transition from America-hater to America-lover (Liberals just consider that a transition from Left to Right).
From "Bosom Buddies" to "Forrest Gump," and from the European theater to the shores of Iwo Jima, Hanks captivated me. His interviews on MSNBC sounded so patriotic, and I held him as the standard for what a patriotic Democrat looked like before the far Left propulsion of the Obama presidency. My friends even know me to say I wish the Democratic Party looked like that again; a patriotic ideology that simply believed in more government-based solutions.
Something changed in Hanks. As the producer for the anti-Sarah Palin film "Game Change," Hanks left the pedestal I had placed him on and entered the world of being nothing more than a merchant of Leftist smear.
Seriously, how does Hanks portend to to idolize America’s Greatest Generation as he’s stated in interviews about "Band of Brothers" while simultaneously supporting leaders who would make our grandfathers and their WWII brothers weep? How can a “patriot” support a president like Obama who would refer to the Constitution of the Unites States as “some rigid idea of what government should or shouldn’t do"?
Deciding to engage in a lying, disingenuous smear on Palin is even a step further into his ideological vomit. Hanks, with all his money, power, goodwill and influence, has chosen to join his Democratic friends in attacking a strong conservative woman with an impeccable record of success and service. Hanks has joined the likes of his fellow Democrat, Larry Flynt. As the Hustler publisher who brought his porn mag into the realm of focusing in on airbrushed women urinating, Flynt hopped aboard the anti-Palin bandwagon long before Hanks. Let us remember Flynt’s attack on Palin's young disabled child. Flynt said young Trig Palin was not a life but a mass of cells that should’ve been aborted. Why Hanks would join forces with such a disgusting band of Palin-haters is beyond me. Maybe Hollywood got the better of him?
If Hanks was a normal, everyday guy, I’d almost get it. I once fell into thinking Palin was an idiot. During my transition from Left to Right, I bought the media lie that she didn’t read or even possess the ability to list off a few magazines. The Couric/Fey effort to deceive society had temporarily worked on me.
It wasn’t until efforts like Steve Bannon’s "The Undefeated" that I saw the context of those interviews that made “everyone” hate Palin. Realizing I’d been deceived, I looked further. I found Palin to be someone who I not only admire, but someone who represents what the Left claims they idealize – a brilliant woman who successfully took on both Left and Right establishments for the good of people. Maybe everyday liberals wouldn’t step outside of their HuffPo echo chamber and realize who and what Palin really is. But Hanks is smarter than the average Joe. He knows Palin's success story. He knows the men and women from our Greatest Generation would love and defend what Palin represents.
This begs the question: Why does Hanks need to destroy Palin? Why would he give the proverbial middle finger to the half of the nation who loves and admires Palin? How could someone like him allow his ideology to bring him to such a reprehensible low?
The far Left establishment learned after their failed attempts of the 1960s and 70s that coming out openly against what America stood for was a failing proposition. They learned attacking patriotism wasn’t the way to go if success was their aim. As evidenced by Hanks, they know they must convince us that everything American is no longer American. They need us to believe that Europe is what America is. They need us to believe that true patriotism isn’t what our fathers died for. They need us to shed the idea that defending our Constitution isn’t patriotic, regardless of what Americans’ blood has been shed over.
What better way to achieve these goals than to have Hanks, the “modern-day Jimmy Stewart,” eat apple pie while he destroys Palin's reputation? A strong defender of constitutional governance, a hard worker who achieved success, a beautiful woman with a career who also raised a family – must be destroyed by the Left establishment. I see why. I’m just heartbroken Hanks decided to pull the trigger for them.
My apologies to Stewart; Hanks has nothing on you. He’s apparently chosen to be more like Flynt.
