Whenever Sarah Palin attempts to pontificate on anything that isn’t snowmobiling or shooting crap, it’s almost as if her eyes flash vacancy. She doesn’t quite go to that insane place where Michele Bachmann permanently resides, but there’s definitely something awry.
The notorious snow grifter refuses to go away or acknowledge the fact that there’s only so many ways of saying “you betcha,” recently decided to redefine feminism. Image the possibilities (and infinite malapropisms).
In efforts to get conservative minded ladies with political aspirations to attend the Young Women’s Leadership Summit in St. Charles, Illinois, Palin titled a recent Facebook post with “Hey Girls! You Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Government to Succeed!” Hey Girls? Apparently she now writes quizzes for Seventeen Magazine. SarahPAC, the faux political action committee that bears her name and which she has skimmed from, is sponsoring this week’s conference of roughly 175 right-wing high school and college activists from around the country. Of course, one has to ask how they’re going to fit all of those teenage mothers in one place.
Anyway, here was Sarah Palin’s psycho babble on feminism:
These aren’t your mother’s feminists,” Palin says of convention attendees. She writes that a new, tech-savvy generation of women leaders are “studying tools and techniques to spread an empowering, genuine feminist message back on their college campuses this fall. This gives us hope for America! The girls are going rogue!”
“The motto here is ‘women don’t need government to succeed,’” Palin continues. “Right on! I admire them embracing one of the most politically incorrect positions the Leftist PC Police goes ballistic over – the truth that God has equipped women to be capable and courageous enough to make it without Big Daddy government enslaving us under its freedom-killing control. The empowering truth that ‘women don’t need government to succeed,’” Palin says in closing, “reminds our next generation that they don’t need ‘big brother’ for success, any more than they need a man for fulfillment, any more than a fish needs a bicycle. THAT’S the message of genuine feminism, and I’m heartened to see conservatives return to our roots and live it. Ladies, 2016 is time to put the heels on and take the gloves off! Best wishes on a successful summit! (Raw Story)
Honestly, a bicycle riding fish would make a much more coherent speaker, but I guess they’re all booked. The fact that this conference is hosting a woman who quit her job as Governor and skimmed from her own SuperPac as a role model, well, that just about sums up where the right-wing is these days.
According to its website, the conference plans on hosting a variety of speakers for students, as well as programming designed to develop attendees’ political leadership capabilities back home. But nobody nearly as famously sanctimonious as Sarah Palin.
