I recently became aware of the unreasoning and vicious attack on Sarah Palin and her family, to include her son, Trig. You see, the Wonkette, a far left and rabidly anticonservative blog, decided to run a story on Trig's third birthday with the intent of excoriating both Trig and his mother. In case you were unaware, Trig is a Down's syndrome child. Many on the left believes that he is unfit to live and that he will become a useless eater as the good folks at the Hadamar clinic used to say. Hence their former open support of eugenics, and closed support of it now, since it has fallen out of favor. The truth is that Down's syndrome children are a gift. They teach us that the world is a truly wonderful place and that happiness can always be had, even in the darkest of times. But try telling that to the abortion minded left who view such children as a burden at best, and a punishment at worst.
So Mr. Jack Stuef had this to say in the Wonkette:
"That strange man yelling unintelligibly at Sarah Palin? He’s merely a lowly shepherd proclaiming the birth of our savior. Today is the day we come together to celebrate the snowbilly grifter’s magical journey from Texas to Alaska to deliver to the America the great gentleman scholar Trig Palin. Is Palin his true mother? Or was Bristol? (And why is it that nobody questions who the father is? Because, either way, Todd definitely did it.) It doesn’t matter. What matters is that we are privileged to live in a time when we can witness the greatest prop in world political history."
Way to go Jack! Great insults! Vicious, condescending, arrogant, and the implied incest on Bristol...wow! I don't know what rock this piss poor excuse for a human being crawled out from under, but Stuef is a bottom feeder for sure. I cannot imagine what nightmarish set of circumstances produced this waste of humanity, but it must have been ugly. The best way to break the mother is to attack the child and Stuef goes for the jugular. He insults Palin's husband, her daughter Bristol, and her son trig all in one paragraph while implying that Todd Palin screwed his own daughter. Frankly, I am surprised that he omitted insulting Palin's other daughter in that paragraph.
Of course, Stuef can't leave it alone from there. He goes on to target Trig yet again when he ridicules him by saying:
"What’s he dreaming about? Nothing. He’s retarded."
That is leftist compassion and tolerance for you. Ridicule a three year old disabled child. When the Wonkette published this sickening and disgusting diatribe, I imagine that they drooled and snickered at the poisoned barbs that they had prepared. Like hyenas circling their wounded prey, they gleefully posted Mr. Stuef's work as a masterpiece of leftist thought. But then, it all went horribly wrong.
They had only intended for the left to get a chuckle out of their demented attack on a disabled three year old child and his mother. But the word got out to the sane in the nation and they took umbrage at the lack of humanity demonstrated by the Wonkette and by Mr. Stuef in particular. Then they began to contact the Wonkette's advertisers and alert them to the sick and twisted ramblings of the diseased minds that they supported with their advertising budgets. The result? Advertisers began dropping the Wonkette like a hot, toxic potato. Then news organizations began to ask the Wonkette uncomfortable questions while the advertisers informed the Wonkette that its services were no longer required. This prompted the following reply from the Wonkette when Papa John's Pizza departed:
"Homophobic Papa John's. Why does every shitty pizza chain support wingnut extremists? (oh, right...)" Tweeted by the Wonkette
But as pressure built on the Wonkette and more advertisers departed, an apology emerged:
"A post on this page satirizing Sarah Palin using her baby as a political prop was very badly done and sounded like the author was mocking the child and not just Sarah Palin/Sarah Palin’s followers."
Sounded like mocking the child? You mean to tell me that saying "What’s he dreaming about? Nothing. He’s retarded" was supposed to be an insult to his mother and her supporters rather than an attack on a disabled child? Why don't you fess up and just admit that you were indeed mocking a disabled three year old? Oh, that's right...that would mean that you're all assholes. Can't have that can we? But the pressure soon prompted another apology by the editors of the Wonkette:
"The writer, Jack Stuef, has apologized for it. And we have decided to remove the post as requested by some people who have nothing to do with Sarah Palin, but who do have an interest in the cause of special needs children. We apologize for the poor comedic judgment."
Of course, the Alaska Dispatch reports that the Wonkette apologized tongue in cheek:
"After some advertisers, like Papa John's and Huggies, began pulling ads from the outlet, Wonkette added an update to the post apologizing for using the word "retarded" there and expressing delineated regret. A subsequent email from Wonkette's editor to AdAge expressed more facetious regret and reiterated at length the publication's call for Sarah Palin to no longer "use her special-needs child as a crass political prop."
The apology of Jack Stuef came after his ass was chewed for losing revenues:
"I regret this post and using the word “retarded” in a reference to Sarah Palin’s child. It’s not nice, and is not necessary, but I take responsibility for writing it. For those who came and are offended by this post: I’m sorry, of course. But I stand by my criticism of Sarah Palin using her child as a political prop."
Mr. Stuef takes responsibility for his writing? Unless he is insane, and the jury is still out on that one, he kind of has to take responsibility for his own writing. He wrote it. As for him being sorry, I suspect that he is only sorry about having been caught at such a twisted affair. As for the loss of advertising, as of now the Wonkette displays none.
A check of the Wonkette today revealed no advertisers. Either nobody wishes to advertise on that site due to its toxicity or the Wonkette is hiding its supporters until such time as all of this blows over. Hope they have some cash on hand to support operations, otherwise they all may just be out of a job. While I suppose that they could blame their loss of employment on the economy, the truth is that their own hatred brought them down.
Hatred of conservatives, hatred of the Republicans, hatred Sarah Palin and her son Trig, and yes, even hatred of themselves. Hatred is a consumer. It eats the mind, it eats the body, and it eats the soul and leaves behind only slag. That is the left today and it is who they are and what they represent. No longer happy or even totally human they are like golem from Lord of the Rings, only a shadow of what a man or a woman once was.
The ugly and vile things they say about their enemies, and they are legion, is only a reflection of their own souls and inner torment. In a sense, they are living their Hell right here on Earth and every so often, they prove it like the Wonkette just did.
