Well, Obama enjoyed eating dog as a child in Indonesia -- it doesn't get published much, I'm sure it wouldn't if W was a childhood fido foodie either. From BO's "Dreams":
“I learned how to eat small green chill peppers raw with dinner (plenty of rice), and, away from the dinner table, I was introduced to dog meat (tough), snake meat (tougher), and roasted grasshopper (crunchy),”Naturally we know that such quotes from a "Citizen of the World", sophisticated beyond our poor provincial understanding in the highly respectable customs of those not subject to the whims of PETA are something brought up by only right wing "small brain consistency" hicks.
Large brained consistency is a topic that is managed by the gods of the NY Times and NPR. For an unwashed small brained midwesterner like myself to question the majesty of my betters on such a topic is absolute proof of my pedestrian intellectual stature.
The picture that Palin and that DeGeneres posted are in the linked article for examination. The statement relative to Palin is nearly too much to believe, even for them "PETA, along with everyone else, is used to the hard-hearted, seeming obliviousness of this bizarrely callous woman,”. Bizarre indeed.
What PL said that I think bears just a bit more thought is:
Governor Palin, for whatever reason, continues to be catnip to liberals. I can’t explain it; the only observation I can offer is that there is something about attractive conservative women–Palin, Michelle Malkin, Michele Bachmann, younger generation conservatives like Dana Loesch–that causes liberals to take leave of their senses.
The level of the hatred seems hard to understand, but I think the source of it is explained in the Bible:
Rom 1:26, For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against natureThe repertoire of human reaction and behaviour is at many levels quite simple, and there is not much more naturally beautiful than an attractive woman, which becomes even more appealing and likely to be respected as a capable mother.
An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels.Attractive, Godly, conservative women and especially mothers are symbols that must be destroyed! The very natural attractiveness of these women is something that is a great enemy to the National Socialist creed of TP (The Party-D) . PETA for example is against eating meat -- so natural to humans that we have canine incisors. They often go beyond even this to be against any domestication of animals, even pets -- an integral part of human culture all the way back to early primitive tribes. PETA would have been a big hit in National Socialist Germany -- Hitler was a Vegetarian and a huge animal rights guy. The natural must be exchanged for the unnatural.
Humans WILL hold some things sacred (well covered in "The Righteous Mind"), so the problem of TP is to convert those symbols from the natural to the unnatural. For "attractive, caring mother", substitute manlike coarse lesbian (say Ellen DG). Especially for white people, make the idea of children to seem to be "sinful" --- destructive of the environment, selfish.
The age old problem with "progressivism", National Socialism, etc is that the vehicle of their promethian dream, man, is actually built up from and exists in nature. Stop people from having children, and nature takes it's course -- and quite quickly in terms of history.
