I’ve gotten used to the fact that anytime the media says the word ‘Palin’ it will be done with a mix of disgust, horror, fear and shock, but the most recent example of ‘Palin Derangement Syndrome’ was good enough to get a nice chuckle out of me.
Sarah Palin went and did the traditional turkey pardon at a turkey ranch in Alaska. No big deal right? Oh no, because when she was doing an interview after the pardon you could see very clearly in the background a man using a machine to process the turkeys by cutting their heads off. The Huffington Post (purveyor of all things liberal loony) portrays it this way:
After the pardon Palin proceeded to do an interview with a local TV station while the turkeys were being SLAUGHTERED in the background!! Seemingly oblivious to the gruesomeness going on over her shoulder, she carries on talking for over three minutes.
I’m going to guess that no one at the HP eats meat at all then, or watches Dirty Jobs because that show has shown things a heck of a lot more disturbing than turkeys being inserted head first into a decapitation machine.
Here’s the facts of life, for us to EAT the animal it has to be dead first. And since most of us don’t really want to wait until old age takes the animal we wish to consume, that means we have to kill it. Sarah understands this and she, in fact, does kill her own food which is probably why the “slaughter” didn’t bother her at all. She’s not oblivious to it, she just understands the facts of life a lot better than the so-called journalists at the HP.
The other thing is this: If it was so gruesome and disturbing why didn’t the camera man set up the shot so that wasn’t included? The way it is framed leads me to think that the camera man set it up this way intentionally. His motives for this I don’t know, but having done camera work, still and motion picture, I would find it very difficult to believe that he wasn’t aware of everything that was in the cameras view.
On Michelle Malkin’s site she links to the NY Times whose editors are apparently crying in their lattes about the ‘executions’ of the birds. Well guys, if it would make you feel better we could execute a few terrorists instead. Also, Conservative Pilgrim nails it with his piece ‘Execute Babies: Absolutely. Execute Turkeys: You’ve Got to be Kidding Me!?!!’ What it comes down to is that the left is so scared of Sarah that even though the election is over and they are having some buyer’s remorse, they are STILL scared that in four years she will come back and destroy them.
Ya know what? They’re right too, she will.
