After being disinvited from a RedState event over the weekend, Donald Trump called RedState’s Erick Erickson “a major sleaze and buffoon who has saved me time and money.” The Donald may be on to something.
Erickson, a RINO on steroids could best be described with an old Ralph Kramden line. “I’ve seen some hypocrites in my day but he is the hippiest critic I have ever seen,” Jackie Gleason once quipped on The Honeymooners. Now Erickson’s latest comments are being taken to task by Bristol Palin and her mom, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. The two completely expose the ridiculousness that is political correctness with a big Bang, Zoom.
In her popular blog, Bristol Palin blasts Fox News for its Republican presidential debates last week and she chides Erickson for calling Trump a sexist.
Palin wrote: “It’s official. I used to use this blog to point out how liberals use the ‘outrage industry’ to manipulate people and keep their power. Now Republicans are just as bad.”
By now you’ve undoubtedly heard that there’s a guy named Erick Erickson, of RedState, who disinvited Donald Trump from a gathering of conservatives because, as he put it, “there are even lines blunt talkers and unprofessional politicians should not cross. Decency is one of those lines.” Erickson bumped Trump from the event after a war of words between Mr. Trump and Fox News host Megyn Kelly.
After the second GOP debate Thursday, Trump said, “you could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her whatever.” Some took that as a dig at Kelly’s menstrual cycle. Erickson used it as an excuse to dump Trump. Kelly, a former guest on Howard Stern’s program, who also posed for pictures in GQ magazine while scantily clad was suddenly the poster woman for the fictitious war on women.
That liberal logic was picked apart masterfully by Palin. She wrote : Want to learn some “lessons in sexual and political decency” from Erickson? Here are three:
Palin listed just a sample of Erickson’s hypocritical comments and actions over the years. His use of a fake picture of her mother wearing a revealing shirt with Santa Claus, his profanity laced description of Supreme Court Justice David Souter, and a tweet from 2007 in which Erickson seemed to get his kicks off of Trump bashing Rosie O’Donnell on Fox–one of the very things Trump was slammed for in the recent GOP debate.
Palin also gave specific examples of Fox hypocrisy. She ripped the network for host Chris Wallace joking about hoping Sarah Palin would sit on his lap, and included a quote from Fox News President Roger Ailes in which he said he hired the former vice presidential candidate “because she was hot and got ratings.”
As for that former veep nominee, she is on board with her daughter evidenced by her promotion of Bristol’s Blog through social media. Sarah Palin provided a link to her daughter’s blog on Facebook with the intro of – “Rocks and glass houses don’t go together when you’re playing PC gotcha games, so please spare us the holier than thou routine. Read Bristol’s post on how hypocritical this ‘trumped up’ outrage is.” Both Palin women agree Fox should be ashamed to have asked Mr. Trump about his history of demeaning comments on women during the debate. It’s hard to argue with their commonsense stance.
Bristol Palin’s blog gives a tidy wrap-up of just how ridiculous so many so-called Republicans and “fair and balanced” news outlets have become. “We only have so many opportunities to hear from the fifty million candidates who are apparently running for President. And we get the Fox moderators asking questions that the New York Times applauds?” Palin said. “Please. Let’s don’t use the Democratic ‘war on women’ talking points when we have ISIS to worry about.”
“Fox and Erickson need to get off their high horse on how outraged they are NOW about sexism and decency,” Palin added. “Let’s focus on winning the election, not winning accolades from The New York Times.”
We will surely see and hear plenty more from the PC brigade and “outrage industry” as Palin puts it before the 2016 race is decided, but on this day the score is clear. Mama grizzlies- 1 RINOs- 0.
