Some Palin Questions For Lorrie And An Offer Of Reciprocation

For the record, I am “blogger two” Lorrie referred to in her earlier post. And I will certainly admit that Sarah Palin is a deadly serious and competent (thus far) culture warrior. She is certainly McCain’s best chance to win. She, of course, isn’t taking any questions. I guess the vice presidential nominee’s account of her own record and political beliefs is none of our business.

So in Palin absentia, I have a few questions I want to ask Lorrie, who sees her as such a heroine. I’d really like her to answer them.

But first, because these questions are a little rough, I want to emphasize what good person Lorrie is and how much I respect her and her civic-mindedness. We’ve know each other a long time. And since I’ve certainly written a few snarky things about some of the classic Republican narratives in the past few weeks, I’d love for Lorrie to put any similarly tough questions to me. I’ll answer them.

Anyway, here it goes:

1) Do you think the Iraq occupation is a “task that is from from God,” like Palin does?

2) Can you cite a media report attacking the Palin family, a specific report you heard or saw. What did it say?

3) If my 15-year-old daughter were raped or a victim of incest, would you deny her the same array of choices available to Bristol Palin? Sarah Palin would. If she had an abortion, would you consider her a murderer.

4) Do you think “community organizers,” like say, the people with Parker Street ministries, or you, with your great Keep Polk Beautiful work, or the people with PEACE, are worthy of the contempt that dripped out Palin’s mouth. Or did you not see the sneer with which she and Rudy Giuliani repeatedly referred to community organizers?

5) In fact, would you agree that Republicans have now expressed more contempt for Obama’s community service than they have for John McCain’s repeated adultery on his first wife?

6) If Buddy Fletcher went to the Lakeland librarian to ask about banning books and then threatened to fire her over questions of personal loyalty, how would you react?

7) If Michelle Obama, like Sarah Palin’s husband until 2002, belonged to a political party that advocated secession from the United States and whose founder said this:

“The fires of hell are frozen glaciers compared to my hatred for the American government.”

And talked about “their damn flag.”

How would you react?

8) Do you agree with this:

Brickner also described terrorist attacks on Israelis as God’s “judgment of unbelief” of Jews who haven’t embraced Christianity.

“Judgment is very real and we see it played out on the pages of the newspapers and on the television. It’s very real. When [Brickner’s son] was in Jerusalem he was there to witness some of that judgment, some of that conflict, when a Palestinian from East Jerusalem took a bulldozer and went plowing through a score of cars, killing numbers of people. Judgment — you can’t miss it.”

Sarah Palin sat in church and listened to that sermon a couple of weeks ago. Should she renounce the speaker and her church? Or at least account, like Obama did with Wright, for why she stayed? What if she believes that Jews really are enduring God’s judgment?

9) Do you think angling for and receiving $27 million in federal taxpayer earmarks, which you and I paid for, while mayor of a town of 5,000, qualifies as getting Americans ” to brush off their own skinned knees and wipe their own snotty noses.” Do you agree that Alaska is the single-biggest welfare state in America judged by government spending per person?

10) In fact, let’s look at that whole passage: “Pardon me while I wretch. It’s not gonna happen, people! It’s time for Americans to brush off their own skinned knees and wipe their own snotty noses. Try as the government may, I am convinced that it does not hold all of the answers to our woes. People need to take some personal responsibility.”

Is that what you think of me or my family? Or some portion of your fellow writers here at LL. That we don’t brush off our own skinned knees or wipe our own snotty noses? That we wake up each day and walk out the door thinking, my God, what will we do if government doesn’t hold our hand today? That we don’t take personal responsibility? If so, name us. Who do you think “people” is? Do you really think I look down on the 10,000-person small town where I grew up and my parents still live? Really? Who exactly is Sarah Palin defending small towns from? Does my perception that the last eight years have been an utter disaster for this country, and especially small towns, reflect my lack of character? You ever hear a Democrat give a speech that sneers at Mississippi or Alabama values?

——————————————————————————–

These are personal questions because Palin and the rest, particularly Rudy (serial, unrepentant adulterer) Giuliani, made personal speeches dripping with disgust and ridicule at who Obama, and by extension, the people who support him, are. Not what they do, or what they think. Who they are. And you loved it.

Those speeches were designed to do exactly what they did: make this election a struggle between warring cultural/religious tribes. Obama’s entire campaign has been built on moving past this into a battle over ideas. It is infinitely sad to see McCain, who used to think similarly to Obama, (I might have voted for him in 2000) do what he’s done here. But McCain needs an emotional fight to win, and he’d obviously rather set off a culture war than lose an election.

I reacted just as viscerally, in opposite, to Palin’s speech as you did because she flung a dagger at me and my family’s values. I will put those values up against yours, or anybody else’s, at any time, as will the millions of other taxpayers, citizens and parents who think like I do. If that means tribal warfare, so be it. And one thing to keep in mind, whether it wins this year or not, my tribe – made up of all the types of people you didn’t see at the Republican convention – is growing. The other isn’t.

  1. I must be all over the chart on issues.

    I’m attempting to be a ‘Community Organizer.’ I’m building a ‘community of faith.’

    I curious to know your thoughts on the ‘Community Organization’ that has been able to sweep up the homeless out of the public view, shut down a side-walk Sunday School at All Saints’, and cuts funding to local ministries who provide help to the poor?

    I remember seeing the reports of soldiers who discovered the Holocaust camps, the citizens of the town next to it claimed they new nothing! I know of an official in our judicial system whose hatred and defiance of the Jewish people must not have been uncovered before the election. People are trying to claim the mass murder never existed.

    My own family was shocked, stunned, overwhelmed when they had to pick me up from a Bible Study I was doing at the Talbot House. They wondered what all ‘those people’ were doing lying down by the fence on the ground. I told them that was where they would spend the night. My family was amazed that there were so many.

    Brandt Russo, the ‘homeless evangelist’ who was arrested by Ignited Church and spent two nights in jail, was harassed by a code enforcement official (name withheld) yesterday. (Harassed is my word, since I was witness to the attitude and conversation via cell phone.)

    So the right to assemble peaceably for a tail gate party at your office and have ten friends over is OK, but it’s not OK, if your clothes are from Good-Will. Then someone complains and someone from the ‘law’ has to push their weight around.

    You can feed the swans, but don’t give your ritz cracker to another animal that appears to be human, but whose appearance is not as neat, then you’re breaking the law!

    I think this falls into the category of ‘uncategorized, community, and politics.’

    Peace to you!

  3. What a great post, Mr. Townsend! And how interesting that the McCain/Palin supporters from Ms. Walker’s post haven’t shown up yet to defend their heroine! These are the tough questions and if anyone in the media was “attacking” Sarah Palin and her family, these are what they’d be asking.

  5. By the way, I sent this post to Lorrie ahead of time as a heads up. Much to her credit, she told me she plans to respond, although it may take her a little while. I did load her up with questions, after all. So let’s just make sure we respect her writing and her space to respond. The commentors, at least from my point-of-view, can fend for themselves. In response to Mr. Fahenstock, the homeless issue in downtown particularly is a vexing issue with many valid points-of-view, including his. e raises many good points. I’ll have something to say about that later. But it’s too big an issue to tackle in a comment.

  7. Maybe it’s just me, but when I hear “community organizer” I understand it as “ward boss”, which is a typical — and usually corrupt — community organizer in large cities. It’s possible I misunderstood the meaning, but that’s what I came away with when I heard that mentioned. I’ve only seen Democrats conflate community activities with community organizer, but maybe it’s a common misperception?

  9. Donkeyrock,

    In Obama’s case, he did community organizing work for that corrupt ward boss known as the Catholic Church. Maybe you should think about you form your perceptions.

  11. Billy, I think you have hit it on the nose. You just might not realize which nose you hit. It truely is a cultural war, and I believe that is part of the reason she isn’t answering questions. You see, the war is likely about world views. My own perception is that there are 2 main world-views (defined to mean how we look at the world around us, not our view of the rest of the world) here in the great USA. I will spare you what i believe those to views are as that will muddy this particular instance.

    When 2 people of opposing world-views begin to have a discussion *Cough* *Cough* it can become incredibly difficult to make your point, if your point is completely outside the world-view of your discussion mate.

    So when you ask a question like “Do you think the Iraq Occupation is a “task that is from God””, One would have to know what world-view the asker is and decide if it would be possible to accomplish anything if they are of different world-views, because an answer that would be acceptable to people of the same world view, and thus the have the same understanding and assumptions, would be possible. Though if the participants had conflicting world-views, then no matter what answers where given, there would be no resolution; because the parties wouldn’t ever look at the question on the same plane.

    So with that stated (if it made any sense) I would like to point out, that a few of these questions that wouldn’t be understood effective and thus can’t be answered effectively without understanding a persons world-view. This is something very personal that may or may not have a place on a hyper-local blog.

    But it makes for a great read, full of emotion and personal belief.

  13. Interesting response, Billy.

    It seems “community organizer” means to get the people riled up to do something about their situation by petitioning and/or confronting the government. The organizer can’t do anything, he/she has to get the community leaders to do the work. The organizer shows the community leaders how to bring up — and hopefully get results for — any issues there may be via political pressure.

    From NRO: Byron York – What Did Obama Do As A Community Organizer? – And is it really a qualification to be president?

    http://article.nationalreview.com/?q=OWMxNGUxZWJjYzg1NjA0MTlmZDZmMjUwZGU3ZjAwNmU=

    From Page 3:
    “When he left for law school, Obama wondered what he had accomplished as an organizer. He certainly had some achievements, but he did not — perhaps could not — concede that there might be something wrong with his approach to Chicago’s problems. Instead of questioning his own premises, he concluded that he simply needed more power to get the job done. So he made plans to run for political office. And in each successive office, he has concluded that he did not have enough power to get the job done, so now he is running for the most powerful office in the land.”

    It seems Obama is being a classic American Marxist in his approach to politics.

  15. “It seems Obama is being a classic American Marxist in his approach to politics.” — Please give your definition of American Marxist as it relates here. Thanks.

    Just a small point, but please consider it: is anyone qualified to be President?

    Every person seeking the job is going to fall short in some areas. I believe anyone so qualified to be President probably doesn’t care to run.

    I also believe that the mere fact of desiring to be President makes someone less than qualified, but that’s just a personal bias.

  17. Chuck,

    American Marxism is, in my opinion, an emphasis on government righting all wrongs and solving all problems. The great and benevolent mother, so to speak.

    As for qualification, you’d have to ask Byron York or his editors about that. Personally, I think the most qualified type of person for the presidency is a type-a personality who will not give away so much of our money, both domestically and abroad. Just follow the constitution and stop trying to bribe the world.

  19. Wow. It is apparent that you feel strongly about this.

    This may seem like an odd statement and hard to hear, but your writings are no different than the approaches that Rove and Rush take. In fair dialogue, I don’t like the way they do politics either. What you are doing is locking onto a single statement on an issue our of context and turning it up to it’s extreme.

    Let’s try to turning the volume down on some of your statements.

    1) To say that it is a task from God is completely loaded. I am a Christian and believe God is sovereign. Whether or not, we should be there and whether or not Bush lied or screwed up, we are there. If God didn’t want it to happen, it wouldn’t have. On the flip side, I truly believe that if Obama is elected President, God wanted that too, and that would be a task from God. Obama better take that seriously.

    2) There are many stories on Palin’s family and I think you spoke way too soon on that statement and put your foot in your mouth. Let’s just name two.

    From the bizzare that you can’t take seriously
    http://wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=75852

    To the highly personal
    http://weblogs.baltimoresun.com/entertainment/zontv/2008/09/unwed_teen_moms_on_abc_family.html

    3) This is a highly personal issue and a lightning rod. But, to put rape and incest abortions at the center of the issue is like saying because your daughter could explain why she got 1 bad grade out of 100, all other bad grades make sense too and are ok.

    Wiki states that only 1% of abortions are a result of rape and incest. I think they are rare enough to deal with them on a case by case basis. But my general opinion, why solve the problem of a sin (rape and incest) with a sin (abortion). A house cant be divided against itself, and you can’t fight fire with fire. Let’s maybe try fighting sin with love. God loved our twisted and deformed hearts, which are a product of sin, and made us sons and daughter if we believe in Jesus, why wouldn’t we want to do that for a baby, that would be a product of sin, as a result. To not, is to void the compassion and mercy you believe in for the victim and because you say it doesn’t apply to the child you are aborting.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abortion_in_the_United_States

    And your comparison is way off, Bristol Palin wasn’t involved in rape or incest, unless you believe the SNL skit above.

    4) I do believe that the RNC was way off base on their approach to try and minimize Obama’s experience. But, that is not the heart of the issue. I am certain that Obama is a very gifted and charismatic speaker and knows how to rally people, but does that make him qualified as president. The Republican party didn’t lock onto this flaw in Obama, the Democratic party highlighted that as why he is qualified. That was the DNC’s mistake for leaning on it and the RNC just poorly communicated the irrelevancy of that experience. The organizations you mentioned are doing great work, but that doesn’t make them qualified to run for president.

    5) Yes that is probably true, but would you also agree that the Democratic party has shown more contempt for McCain’s multiple houses that John Edward’s, former presidential nominee, more recent affair. The point is not to be self righteous about an issue but self aware. Right is right and wrong is wrong, even if we are unable to meet the standard, the standard is still good and should be promoted.

    6) Let’s work off facts…Palin asked librarian what a response would be if she asked to ban books. No books were mentioned and the librarian resigned. For the record, I don’t agree with banning books.
    http://www.ajc.com/news/content/news/stories/2008/09/05/palin_book_banning.html

    7) This is obviously a skeleton in the closet, we all have them, including Palin and Michelle Obama. Including this thesis, which promotes racial separation over integration.
    http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0208/8642.html

    8) As for the Brickner remark, Chuck doesn’t have to answer for what you say nor should Palin or Obama. But Brickner likely didn’t mention Palin’s name once in an interview or sermon. Can the same be said for Wright and Obama, probably not, so the attempted connection of Wright makes a difference. If you said, Chuck Welsh backs me up on this, Chuck should respond.

    9) This may be true, but Palin was elected in Alaska to serve the Alaskan population, not reform the federal govt, in that she did a good job obviously. If she says that she wants to reform the US govt, she now has a change too. Plus, you say it your self on the next blog on csx that the money could go to college and rail relocation. You probably dont want that money spent, but if their writing the check you would rather it be for Lakeland than another community. Palin did the same thing, she could stop it but represented her constituency well.

    10) I think you are personalizing a political and governmental statement. That is a classic Republican perspective; the govt should not be involved in every affair of the people and let the free market work.

    For you to blame the state of the US on the Republican party is short sided, if I recall the congress majority is democratic and they are as hands on as the president in running this country. So, let’s all take a little responsibility.

    Thank you and I do appreciate your excitement on the issues and invite you to continue, let’s just try to bring it down a couple notches.
