What Was That About a Place in Hell?

6 10 2008

At a campaign stop in California on Saturday, Sarah Palin told one of her cutesy folksy hockey mom stories about reading the quote of the day on her Starbucks mocha cup. The quote was from former Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright.  “Now she said it, I didn’t,” quipped Palin with her finger in the air.  ” She said, ‘There’s a place in Hell reserved for women who don’t support other women.'” In a bit of irony, the crowd was actually  booing Madeleine Albright, the first female Secretary of State, and had to stop so they could laugh and cheer at Palin’s “gotcha” about not supporting women. 

It turns out the actual quote was, “There’s a place in Hell reserved for women who don’t help other women.” Albright responded, saying she was “flattered” Palin chose “to cite me as a source of wisdom” but said the quote “had nothing to do with politics.”

“This is yet another example of McCain and Palin distorting the truth, and all the more reason to remember that this campaign is not about gender, it is about which candidate has an agenda that will improve the lives of all Americans, including women.”

Palin told her cheering audience to watch and see how her comment is “turned into whatever it’ll be turned into tomorrow with the newspaper.”

Well, this isn’t a newspaper, but I’m going to turn it into this:

Hmmm….Governor Palin, you were saying something about a place in Hell?

From everything I’ve read, Palin ran the city hall with an iron fist. Wanting to take credit all the good stuff and wanting to make sure the dept heads did her bidding, and no one else’s. And she seems to have a pattern of not wanting to admit mistakes. What could have been her thinking in addition to saving money? Did she imagine gathering forensic evidence would interfere conception? That any crime victim should have to pay for the investigation of a crime is beyond cruel. Crime is bad enough. Rape is reprehensible. But to punish the crime victim … well, how could call yourself a Christian as she does?

Thanks for this great video. These are terrible times we are living through.

We feel your pain, Alaska. And we are cheering your efforts in Alaska for the Rule of Law. You’ve got a lot ahead of you. And we’re right by your side.

I think there is a place in hell for women like Palin. I don’t believe that the media and other politicians are not DEMANDING that Palin give more interviews. SERIOUS interviews so the public can assess her true knowledge. Second, she is spouting hateful speech on the campaign trail. Why does McCain tolerate this? How can conservatives tolerate this. Have any of you read what some of the people in the audience are shouting out about Obama? “Kill him! and “he’s a terrorist.” What has happened to our country! Why isn’t their more moral outrage about this.. I am so upset!

I think this should be linked to the fact that Palin’s staff says that Walt Monegan was fired for being a rogue – for going to Washington to seek funds for a program to combat sexual violence against women.

“Monegan told ABC that the travel authorization was explicitly to pursue funding for the anti-sexual-violence program, though the document does not state that as a reason for the trip.”

AKM, thank you so much for posting this. Terrific comeback to the Palin b.s. of the campaign trail this week. I duly posted it on my site, with the added detail that wasn’t mentioned here, that the kits cost a sickening $1200. Women shouldn’t have to pay a single cent, of course, but when I first heard that number, I was revolted on an even deeper level. The whole thing is so horrifying.

“Sarah Palin should just go back to Alaska and be a Lancome rep.” LOL

Last night CNN International had on Joe Hilley, some guy who was plugging his book “Sarah Palin: A New Kind of Leader” (published by the Christian publisher Zondervan) and he was blathering on about how great Palin was when the desk anchor interrupted him with a look of disgust and said Palin has said nothing in her campaign stops about the economy, then actually threw up his hands and said that’s enough, we have economic news to report (the Dow was down 500 points then) and cut him off in mid-interview!

It was amazing to see and I wish someone had the clip on Youtube so you all could enjoy it as I did.

and now, tax experts are questioning how palin did not claim the travel expenses for todd and the kids as taxable income

this is what happens when you hand over your forms to hr block

now palin has claimed that her kids needed to travel because there are events where the entire family of the governor is expected to attend…however, the state spent over 43k on those travel expenses…thats alot of events

and questions must start in regards to how the family is treating trig

dont have to lay this on sarah, todd can take some blame too

it is well known that with a down syndrome child, in order for that child to hit milestones at a close to normal rate, intensive physical and speech therapy should be started from day 1

the child is now going into the 6 month, and looks and behaves very close to a newborn

serious lack of muscle development…he basically looks like a rag doll

and this woman expects people to believe that she will be an advocate for special needs kids?

Here’s an answer to someone’s earlier question. This has even made it to Yahoo news:

McCain linked to private group in Iran-Contra case

WASHINGTON (AP) – GOP presidential nominee John McCain has past connections to a private group that supplied aid to guerrillas seeking to overthrow the leftist government of Nicaragua in the Iran-Contra affair.

McCain’s ties are facing renewed scrutiny after his campaign criticized Barack Obama for his link to a former radical who engaged in violent acts 40 years ago.”

The ONLY reason she’s out there spouting off like a lunatic is because she’s hiding behind the sexism card knowing that Obama/Biden are not going to go after her.

7 10 2008
White Agate

That is a great documentary, thanks AKM! The web site for the Wasilla Project is worth checking out, it seems they are going to do a bunch more.

I remember reading, too, that if you didn’t have the money to pay for your rape kit they went after your annual state oil check, too, and deducted it. If each rape kit was $1400, that might not leave much left. Trauma from all sides. As a taxpayer I wouldn’t want to participate in any part of this terrible policy. And as the one interviewee said, why just rape kits? Why not other types of crimes? Mmm-hmm.

Also, I think I read that Alaska, sadly, has a fairly high rape/violent crimes against women rate, and in the Native communities it’s higher. The first step in bringing those numbers down is having a government that makes it easy (and inexpensive) to report the crime, and one that doesn’t blame the victim and further stigmatize a horrible experience by charging money for the one law enforcement practice that might bring the numbers down.

A culture of life, right? Whose life? Seems to me that phrase is pretty selective. Is this also an attempt to prevent the morning after pill and therefore by some stretch of the imagination ‘pro-life?’ Sheesh.

Finally, the fight over this policy says to me that at least in Wasilla, this was a misogynistic practice out of line with the rest of the state. Organizational culture starts at the top. What does it say about what then mayor, now Gov. Palin thinks about other women, particularly when she has young daughters herself? Hell, indeed.

We will never have a press conference with her, will we? They simply will not do it. Maybe Tina Fey will do it on SNL and the echo chamber will be complete.

Have a good day, all, waiting for that report to come out and items #3, #2, and #1.

7 10 2008
WV Democrat

@ White Agate:

You said, “And as the one interviewee said, why just rape kits? Why not other types of crimes?”

Because when a rape occurs an extended kit may provide the victim with any preventive medicine necessary — for tetanus, sexually transmitted diseases, anti-virals for AIDS, and the morning after pill for pregnancy prevention.

Palin obviously regards the morning after pill as an “abortion”. Silly twit.

First-time reader here- boy is this ever a great page! Thank you, Conscience of Alaska!
Previous contributor asked “Where is the moral outrage?” Well, it went out the door eight years ago and in walked the “We win at all costs” attitude with George Bush and his Rethugicans. Let’s face it, folks- Morality is the last thing on their minds, and McCain/Palin would continue that modus operandi if elected.
I am suspecting the Troopergate investigation will result in nothing more than a slap on the wrist (if that), and Palin will be “business as usual” if and when she returns to Alaskan politics.

From the story above: Palin told her cheering audience to watch and see how her comment is “turned into whatever it’ll be turned into tomorrow with the newspaper.”

This comment by Plain is very telling about her personality. She knows she is wrong, but she has a “so what” attitude. She can say anything she wants and feels she is somehow protected from her own selfish and stupid comments. She also thinks she is immune from consequences of her actions. Im no shrink, but this is a very troubled and dangerous woman.

This was a disturbing video to see, but it is a story that must be told. I had the pleasure of working in my previous state of residence as a public health educator. I gave many presentations on sexual assault and date rape for teens, parents and young adults. I was also fortunate to be art of a domestic violence and sexual assault conference. The speakers at the conference were phenomenal and the victims were courageous for sharing their stories. I wonder how their stories would have been different if their assaults had occurred in Wasilla,Alaska. This is such a shameful story and I cannot believe that a woman would allow for this behavior of the government she was charged to oversee. Women must know that she certainly has not been “helping” them.

Taupe Armageddon Palin

Because Palin mangles everyone she quotes I’ve found the actual text of this Madeleine Albright quote:

http://ict4peace.wordpress.com/2007/03/07/madeleine-albright-and-technology-for-womens-empowerment/

A woman who gets power – either because she has a particular position in society or government or because she has a cell phone – can’t become a queen bee! Women must help other women. I have this saying that I use quite frequently, which is that there is a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other. A woman with power must understand that, in actuality, her role is to help others. For a woman who wants to be at the center of power, she must understand that her power is actually maximized by encouraging more women to participate in the system.

How ironic that the same woman who would be “queen bee” is the same woman who charged rape victims for rape kits. Could it be because rape kits often include a morning after pill? It all comes back to her determination to take away a woman’s right to choose.

JUST SAY NO TO PALIN!

7 10 2008
Kevin

Maybe it has been prominently posted somewhere and I missed it, but it was only going through these comments that I learned what the forensic kits cost — one poster said $1200, another $1400. That’s a lot more than I, and probably most people, would have guessed. As a matter of principle, of course, a crime victim shouldn’t have to pay anything. (What next, charge by the hour for the services of the policeman who takes the report?) But it really hits hard to think that a rape victim and/or her family is out this kind of money. I would be curious to hear how the Wasilla police chief (or anyone else) defended the indefensible.

Thank you, AKM, for the video. As we have come to expect—you cut right to the chase.

Has this occurred to anyone else, that WHATEVER SWWNBN utters (coherent or not) you can almost immediately find evidence that it is a lie?

Think about it…she seems to deliberately invite us to find the lie, the dichotomy, to catch her…newspapers she reads (pre then post), Supreme Court rulings, annoyance at Katie Couric, selling the plane on ebay, bridge to nowhere, the ayers attack, the incitements to crowd violence…etc.

Others who visit Mudflats are certainly more competent to comment on this particular behavior, but this layperson finds such behavior most disturbing and completely bizarre.

I just want to stop her winking, blinking cult of personality long enough to ask “What do you hope to accomplish with this look directly into my eyes and lie technique?”

She seems to be begging to be called on these lies. Is it merely a test to see how far she can go with them? Or is it a means of mocking us mere mortals?

Just a nod back to West Virginian– and whether Joe Six-Pack is insulted. Most of the Joe Six-Packs I know life have long since switched to 7-Up and are very clear-headed on who will be the best president for our country.

He wants to win this election, even if the result is that everything Americans have always loved and valued about our country turns to SH*T to make it happen.
He’s not a conservative; he’s a pathetic wreck who wants to be President and nothing else matters. NOTHING.

It’s against the law to incite violence against a presidential candidate. Why is Palin getting away with it?

That’s a good question, Jill. If you or I had made some of the same comments, we’d be getting visits from the FBI and Secret Service and would probably spend a few hours in custody if the candidate were speaking anywhere within an 8-hour drive of our homes…

Discussed this thread and the media clips off the TV this morning on her speech in California with my sister. She firmly believes and I agree that this woman is totally certifiably NUTS.

While there may be a “special place in Hell” for us because we do NOT support Sarah Palin, there is most definitely a very very special level in the deepest bowels of Hell for Ms. Sarah.

If anything were to happen to Obama, even so much as stubbing his toe in the dark, I would lay the blame squarely at Palin’s feet.

Not sure if this was brought up earlier but this policy was a clear support of Palin’s stance on her views against abortion even in times of rape/incest. Charging victims for the kits would put additional financial pressure and put another obstacle towards a woman’s Constitutional right.

I wondered the same as well. Where was the secret service and why didn’t they arrest that guy, because that was a very clear threat against Obama?
They could arrest Palin as well, for inciting the crowd to violence.
I almost expect to see people with torches and pitchforks at Palins next rally.

AKM, I hope this video, and your very powerful and well written post makes the MSM.

I too am extremely disturbed by the Repugnants violent and anti-American, ignorant, racist, and hate-filled campaign and their red kool-aid drinking glassy-eyed followers. MSNBC reported tonight the Secret Service is investigating the wingnut who shouted “kill him” I want to stand on the rooftops of sleepy little Venice, Florida and scream at these morons who support the two morons McBush and his Pawn. I am sick of the evil that is emanating from them. Ok, got that off my chest. Keep the links coming — I pass it all on and it gives me hope. I have joined the wasillaproject email notification and can’t wait for the next video. I have no words strong enough to express my revulsion at what Palin did to rape victims. She should rot in hell!

@ Laura
I know your frustration, but that wouldn’t be such a good thing. Having both parties represented creates checks and balance.
Remember Lincoln was a republican
The party just needs to change some and rid itself of some self-destructive behavior.
Thank God I don’t have to be a part of their growing pains though b/c that is one FU”d party! Sorry if I offended JMHO

I wondered that if by charging victims to purchase and process their own evidence, how many sexual assaults went unreported? It used to be bad enough when a rape victim was herself seemingly put on trial because, let’s face it–she have brought it on herself, right? Now charge her for the rape kit on TOP of the humiliation of the trial, what’s the likelihood of her coming forward? Probably not as likely, unfortunately, but HEY–don’t our stats look better?

Must. She must have brought it on herself. Darned code, anyway…

Palin drives me nuts! When I first heard her speech at the RNC I knew right then that this cocky woman must be some type of phony! I guess I was right all along when more and more truths came out about Palin. Pple who only use others to their advantage to get where they are will never succeed in life. The truth will always come back to haunt you and bite you in the butt. And now I see that that is exactly what’s happening to Palin ever since she’s lied about her record of being a mayor and gov of Alaska. That’s what happen when you fake your image. Sooner or later pple will realize you’re not really who you claim to be!

Thanks for the info. What a slap in the face to these woman who were innocent victims. Just another reason to ask – what was John McCain thinking?

Thank you for this post & for your site in general. As someone who grew up in Anchorage, it’s such a lovely change to hear Alaskans speak clearly and articulately. Listening to Palin makes ears twitch and I was starting to think that my memories from childhood of all the intelligent and well spoke people I knew were a figment of my imagination. What is up with her accent anyway? Does everyone in the Valley talk that way?

This in a state that has a terrible record of rape, abuse, and violence against women makes this all that much worse. There is no defense for this practice.
