Alaskan Women Reject Palin rally was to be held outside on the lawn in front of the Loussac Library in midtown Anchorage. Homemade signs were encouraged, and the idea was to make a statement that Sarah Palin does not speak for all Alaskan women, or men.. I had no idea what to expect.


Free Press missing news on purpose

the biggest rally in Alaskan history was a rally against Palin that took place in Anchorage on September 13th. Around 1200 people protested Palin (Maybe not that big for another state, but big for Alaska,) while a group of around 100 of Palin supporters looked on.  Anchorage Daily News reported that Burke called the women leading the protest against Palin “socialist baby-killing maggots” on his show and gave out their personal phone numbers and encouraged people to call them, resulting in the women getting hateful and threatening phone calls. Supposedly, Burke “thought it arrogant when they denounced Palin’s record and position on issues important to ‘most women and families.’” Palin made women pay for their rape kits and is against abortion even in the case of rape and incest.

That should be enough to make any woman scream in terror of the prospect of Palin being in the white house.

Somebody sent me this email (from unknown source) comparing Palin with Obama:

" * If you grow up in Hawaii , raised by your grandparents, you're 'exotic, different.'

* Grow up in Alaska eating mooseburgers, a quintessential American story.

* If your name is Barack you're a radical, unpatriotic Muslim. * Name your kids Willow , Trig, and Track, you're a maverick.

* Graduate from Harvard law School and you are unstable.

* Attend 5 different small colleges before graduating, you're well grounded.

* If you spend 3 years as a brilliant community organizer, become the first black President of the Harvard Law Review, create a voter registration drive that registers 150,000 new voters, spend 12 years as a Constitutional Law professor, spend 8 years as a State Senator representing a district with over 750,000 people, become chairman of the state Senate's Health and Human Services committee, spend 4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of 13 million people while sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Works and Veteran's Affairs committees, you don't have any real leadership experience.

* If your total resume is: local weather girl, 4 years on the city council and 6 years as the mayor of a town with less than 7,000 people, 20 months as the governor of a state with only 650,000 people, then you're qualified to become the country's second highest ranking executive.

* If you have been married to the same woman for 19 years while raising 2 beautiful daughters, all within Protestant churches, you're not a real Christian.

* If you cheated on your first wife with a rich heiress, and left your disfigured wife and married the heiress the next month, you're a Christian.

* If you teach responsible, age appropriate sex education, including the proper use of birth control, you are eroding the fiber of society. * If, while governor, you staunchly advocate abstinence only, with no other option in sex education in your state's school system while your unwed teen daughter ends up pregnant, you're very responsible.

* If your wife is a Harvard graduate laywer who gave up a position in a prestigious law firm to work for the betterment of her inner city community, then gave that up to raise a family, your family's values don't represent America 's.

* If you're husband is nicknamed 'First Dude', with at least one DWI conviction and no college education, who didn't register to vote until age 25 and once was a member of a group that advocated the secession of Alaska from the USA, your family is extremely admirable. "

Some of the signs that people were carrying are just too good to miss.
