Trig Palin and the Left - an observation

| No Comments
Frank J. has the following observation on why the left is so coo-coo over Trig Palin:
The Left�s Problem with Trig
It�s pretty shocking the way some of the left seem unable to separate politics from basic humanity and thus we saw the spectacle of Wonkette attacking Trig Palin, but something we also have to recognize is how much Trig scares the left.

This was something I noticed right away when Sarah Palin came on the scene. One of the few things known about her early on was that she brought a Down Syndrome child to term, and you could see the panic in the left. This wasn�t just someone whose rhetoric clashed with them on abortion; this was someone who�s action was a condemnation of the policy they support that results in 90% of children like Trig being aborted. A lie the left like to tell themselves is that all conservatives are hypocrites and would make the same craven choices in the same situation, but they couldn�t tell themselves that with Palin. That�s probably why the Trig trutherism soon appeared out of desperation.

There�s no greater refutation of abortion than an alive child, and thus Palin holding Trig and smiling is almost like a direct assault to the left. And it�s not so much that they fear other people being convinced on abortion as they fear themselves being moved. Who wants to come to terms with how horrible the policy is they�ve enthusiastically supported? That�s why they like the term �choice� instead of saying �abortion�; they never want to stare it directly in the face for fear of what they�d see. But, again, the mere existence of Trig leaves them no avenue on this. And that�s why there is so much ire directed at Trig. It�s not misdirected from Sarah Palin; it�s target is Trig because he did the greatest offense by existing.
The comments are a joy to read as well...
