Sarah Palin Haters Show Themselves as Effing R-Words
Posted by Gregory of Yardale at February 10, 2010 4:26 PM
Some frothing-at-the-mouth left-wing bloggers have attacked Sarah Palin for wearing a black bracelet with the name of her son Track engraved on it. Track Palin is bravely serving in the U.S. Army in Iraq (and not as a way to avoid jail for vandalism as the deranged left previously claimed.) Supposedly, according to these left-wing
military experts fashion critics, it is a horrific, scandalous breach of protocol to wear the name of a live soldier on a black bracelet.
It began with an as-of-this-time unretracted post at the Yale Daily News, and the deranged Palin-haters of the left quickly ran with the story.
Crooks and Liars whined ... "To wear a bracelet that someone had to order that would clearly indicate it's a memorial bracelet for your child that's alive.Horrifying."
DailyKos simpered .... "this blatant disregard for the norms of military families, and one of the most recognizable symbols of grief, while completely unsurprising, needs to be highlighted." (Pretty rich coming from the website whose most famous sentiment on the grief of those who were lost in wartime is "Screw 'em!")
Once again, the left's hate has made them R-worded. Because that's not what the bracelets are for at all, as a simple Bing search would have revealed. The bracelet Sarah Palin wears is a deployment bracelet, which is available in both black and silver.
I guess Rahm Emmanuel was right about left-wing activists.
