Does not supporting Palin automatically make you a "socialist"?

http://mudflats.wordpress.com/2008/09/14/alaska-women-reject-palin-rally-is-huge/

The Alaska Women Reject Palin rally was to be held outside on the lawn in front of the Loussac Library in midtown Anchorage. Home made signs were encouraged, and the idea was to make a statement that Sarah Palin does not speak for all Alaska women, or men.

The rally was organized by a small group of women, talking over coffee. It made me wonder what other things have started with small groups of women talking over coffee. It’s probably an impressive list. These women hatched the plan, printed up flyers, posted them around town, and sent notices to local media outlets.

The organizers had someone walk the rally with a counter, and they clicked off well over 1400 people (not including the 90 counter-demonstrators). This was the biggest political rally ever; in the history of the state.

  • No, where would you get an idea like that.
    Thats just how the tea parties got started. If youare a Republican or conservative hater you wouldn't know that but there are hundreds of Conservative groups in communities that were started over coffee. These have blossomed online and are a factor in many political issues.
    I'm sure there are some out there with other views both local and national. It's a freedom we still have and hopfully can keep.

  • Anyone who continues to follow Palin's every move now that she is a private citizen--really needs to have their head examined! Just the fact that she no longer has to kowtow to her enemies and bite her tongue, ought to be very empowering! lol

    Women are still seething about her, because she won--she left you all high and dry while you still had so many things to pick on her about--kinda took the wind of your sails, eh? lol

  • I don't know what it would make you. I personally think that Sarah Palin is an intelligent, strong willed, hard working, independent minded, successful woman with great ethics. It's sad that those women can't acknowledge that despite their difference in political opinions. That's the media for you though, demonizing anything that supports and encourages democracy and capitalism, gasp.

    She won? She won what? Nothing. She destroyed McCain's campaign every time she opened her mouth and then she couldn't hack being in a real political forum and up and quit before her 4 year term as governor was up. What exactly did she win?

  • itsmesteph and other posters wondering about the connection - sorry couldn't get it all to fit in OP:
    Further quote from article:

    "Eddie Burke, a long-time uber-conservative Anchorage talk show host. Turns out that Eddie Burke not only announced the rally, but called the people who planned to attend the rally “a bunch of socialist baby-killing maggots”, and read the home phone numbers of the organizers aloud over the air, urging listeners to call and tell them what they thought. The women, of course, received many nasty, harassing and threatening messages."
