Do Matt Damon, David Letterman, Madonna, Howard Stern, Bill Maher, Louis C.K. and other celebrities want to kill Sarah Palin and her children? She thinks so.
The Hollywood Reporter interviewed Sarah Palin at the premiere of the “documentary” on her, entitled “The Undefeated”. The reporter asked her how she responded to seeing the opening montage of nasty jokes made about her.
Then the celebrity montage begins: Damon likens Palin to a “really bad Disney movie” and says she’s “really scary”; Letterman attacks her, and the discourse descends in to the filthy from there. Maher insults her on his TV show, Madonna screams obscenities about her while on stage, and comedians use graphic, severely bleeped language to describe Palin and the intensity with which they ‘hate her.’
Ms Palin responded:
“What would make a celebrity, like you saw on screen, so hate someone that they’d seek their destruction, their death, the death of their children? What would make someone be so full of hate and, I guess, a sense of being threatened that they would want to see that person destroyed?”
Listen up at THR.
Sarah Palin has criticized almost all of these folks for the things they said, so it’s odd that she is claiming now that she had never seen these clips before.
I don’t recall a threat ever being issued against Sarah Palin by a celebrity. Yes, she got picked on, just as most celebrities do, and yes, especially in the season of “Kill him!” “He doesn’t see America like you and me” and “Death panels”, she engendered a lot of anger against her. But again, I don’t recall anyone famous issuing threats against her. Is it sane to suggest that celebrities want to kill you and your children just because they made fun of you or really didn’t like what you stood for? If that’s the case, then I guess we can say Sarah Palin definitely wants to kill the President and every liberal in America.
This is, after all, the woman who put crosshairs on political opponents and whose infamous line is “Don’t retreat, reload!” Sarah Palin also gave us blood libel after the Arizona massacre in which real people and a young child were murdered.
So we have to ask you, is Sarah Palin crazy or do celebrities really do want to kill her and her children? You can explain your vote in more detail in the comments.
