Yes, Saul Alinsky famously preached the importance of ridiculing your adversaries in the public square in order to advance Marxism.
No political figure garnered more public ridicule than Sarah Palin in the 2008 election. Radicals who control the media descended on Alaska with a vengeance to uncover dirt on Ms. Palin at the same time they showed shocking indifference to Barack Obama’s mysterious past.
Every utterance of Ms. Palin was dissected and often twisted to make her look bad. One such comment was this:
“After the Russian Army invaded the nation of Georgia, Senator Obama’s reaction was one of indecision and moral equivalence, the kind of response that would only encourage Russia’s Putin to invade Ukraine next.”
Snooty liberal journalist, Blake Hounshell, who is now editor of Politico, sniffed dismissively that Ms. Palin’s statement was “strange” and “an extremely far-fetched scenario.”
Building up a head of steam, he added:
“And given how Russia has been able to unsettle Ukraine’s pro-Western government without firing a shot, I don’t see why violence would be necessary to bring Kiev to heel.”
Sarah Palin could see right through Mr. Obama.
She was right.
Liberals were wrong.
