Disgraced vice-presidential candidate and former Tea Party matriarch Sarah Palin just made yet another laughable attempt to claw her way back to relevancy by challenging Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MASS) over her use of the phrase “Fight Like A Girl.”
Palin spoke to fascist hate-rag Breitbart and complained about Warren’s use of the phrase, which she claims she “used first” in 2011 when speaking at a rally in support of Governor Scott Walker’s war against the teacher’s unions. “Maybe I should ask some of the Badger women’s hockey team, those champions …If we should be suggesting to GOP leaders they need to learn how to fight like a girl!”
Palin’s remarks to Breitbart on the subject inevitably misses the mark entirely.
I don’t know. Coming from liberals who urge women to claim victimization, ‘Fight like a girl’ just doesn’t sound the same as when legit fighters for equality say it, mean it, live it, and will never give it up.
Sarah Palin has never fought for women’s equality in her life. While she was mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, she made women pay $1,200 (!) for their own rape kits, cut funding for a transitional home for teenage mothers, and worked tirelessly to keep her citizens from getting the sex education they need and a woman’s right to choose while her daughter chose to have two illegitimate children.
Sen. Warren, on the other hand, has become a hero for women across the nation for her tireless efforts to promote equality not just for women but for all Americans, no matter their race, creed, gender, or sexuality – and has turned her words into action on the floor of the Senate in her constant battles to make life easier for working women and their families.
Sarah Palin needs to return to slaughtering elk with a high-powered rifle or whatever it is she does these days when she’s not bailing her children out of prison.
