Nobody exposes the hypocrisy on the left more than former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.
On Saturday, Palin ripped left-wing PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) for calling her out when Palin posted a benign photo of her disabled son using their dog as a booster to reach the sink.
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.
“Chill. At least Trig didn’t eat the dog,” Palin wrote in a Facebook note addressed to PETA, a reference to President Barack Obama’s admission that he ate dog meat in his youth. “Did you go as crazy when your heroic Man-of-Your-Lifetime, Barack Obama, revealed he actually enjoyed eating dead dog meat?
She also asked the organization why it didn’t get “all wee-wee’d up when” when Degeneris posted a similar photo.
“Hypocritical much?” Palin asked.
She then called PETA out for some of its blatant double standards:
Aren’t you the double-standard radicals always opposing Alaska’s Iditarod – the Last Great Race honoring dogs who are born to run in wide open spaces, while some of your pets “thrive” in a concrete jungle where they’re allowed outdoors to breathe and pee maybe once a day? (http://iditarod.com/ http://www.irondog.org/)
Aren’t you the same herd that opposes our commercial fishing jobs, claiming I encourage slaying and consuming wild, organic healthy protein sources called “fish”? (I do.)
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”.
“Yeah, you’re real credible on this, PETA. A shame, because I’ll bet we agree on what I hope is the true meaning of your mission – respecting God’s creation and critters,” she concluded. “Our pets, including Trig’s best buddy Jill Hadassah, are loved, spoiled and cared for more than some people care for their fellow man whose politics may not mesh with nonsensical liberally failed ways or don’t fit your flighty standards.
Jill is a precious part of our world. So is Trig.”
As Whitney Pitcher noted at Conservatives4Palin, PETA was silent when its “Woman of the Year” Degeneres posted her similar photo.
“It’s odd that PETA did not make the same statement when Degeneres, their 2009 Woman of the Year, shared a similar photo with her more than 17 million Facebook friends this summer and received more than a quarter of a million likes,” Pitcher wrote. “Wouldn’t PETA expect someone whom they honored to not condone such an action and photo, even if it didn’t not involve her or her child?”
