Eve Ensler on Palin
I just read a piece on another blog that was written by Eve Ensler (author of the Vagina Monologues). The Ensler piece was all about how much she was against Palin, which quite simply make me more for her. Here are some excerpts:
“Sarah Palin does not believe in evolution.” – Good, neither do I.
“She does not believe in global warming.” – Good its a hoax, and if you believe in it you may as well be a cultist and go hang out with Tom Cruise.
“Sarah Palin does not believe in abortion.” – Good, we should protect the rights of the unborn. I personally believe that you should have the right to do pretty much anything you want, as long as it doesn’t infringe on the rights of others to do the same. Abortion infringes on every right those babies have.
“Sarah believes in guns. She has her own custom Austrian hunting rifle. She has been known to kill 40 caribou at a clip. She has shot hundreds of wolves from the air.” – I don’t think she believes in guns so much as the right to own one…but still good. If you make guns illegal, only criminals and government (some would say you could lump them together) will have guns, then the people can neither defend themselves against would be attackers, or an oppressive government. Also, in regards to killing caribou and wolves, its good for people to help manage animal populations, it prevents over population that hurts everything far more than killing a few caribou to eat.
“Sarah believes in God.” – Seriously though, even the devil believes in God, that just makes her smart. The point Ensler is trying to make is that she is a Christian, which is good, I am too.
Anyway, I knew going in that I did not agree with Eve Ensler, she supports abortion and promiscuity. She also believes that sexual activity and “sexual freedom” empower women. Sexual activity only weakens women, it damages their self esteem, and causes men to continue to view them as sexual objects, one of the very things feminists want to overcome. That being said, without the points, Eve Ensler being against Palin is enough to at least make me support her a little, without the issues even being mentioned.
