Palin-Roe v. Wade and State’s RightsOctober 1, 2008
When Katie Couric asked Sarah Palin whether there were any other Supreme Court cases she disagreed with, Sarah Palin couldn’t name one. Interestingly, though, she made a statement that not only brings up the whole John Birch Society question, but also brings up more questions. Listen to what she says, and after you’re done shaking your head, and stuffing your brains back into your cranium, watch it again and listen for her state’s rights statement.
More after the video:
Okay, now that was bad enough, but, like Ginsu, there’s more!
If she truly believes that states should make these types of decisions on their own, then how does she feel about Brown v. The Board of Education of Topeka? That was a matter dealing with state’s rights, and the whole segregation issue upheld by Plessy v. Ferguson in 1896 (the whole ‘separate but equal’ case). Thankfully the Brown case overturned the idiocy of previous generations that let a caste system be put in place legally. But, according to Sarah Palin’s logic, that should have been handled at the state level–at which level Brown’s case was denied with a citation of Plessy v. Ferguson.
I get it Sarah, I do. You don’t think that the federal government should step in, and that states should be able to keep those that they hate down, and enforce interpretations of some ‘holy’ book into their laws. You, and your kind are the exact ones responsible for the continuation of inequality in this world, Governor, and you are the ones that spread hate with your so called ‘Christian love.’
The real issue in this video isn’t that Sarah Palin can’t name another case with which she disagrees, the real issue is that the Supreme Court shouldn’t interfere in state level issues, such as abortion, or segregation, of anything like that. Let’s usher in a new era of oppression, let’s listen to this wonderfully fresh voice of hatred and ignorance.
