Film-maker Stephen K Bannon's hagiographical portrayal of Sarah Palin opens with several minutes of footage in which various well-known figures in film and US television offer scathing, often expletive-ridden verdicts on the former Alaska governor and darling of the American right, who is said to be weighing up a tilt at the US presidency next year. Their angry comments are interspersed with news footage of an effigy of Palin being hanged. Among those to be represented are Matt Damon (who likens Palin to "a really bad Disney movie"), Madonna, comic Bill Maher and talk-show hosts David Letterman and Howard Stern.
Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter following the screening at a historic opera house in the small town of Pella, Iowa, Palin said it was the first time she had seen the footage. "It makes you want to reach out to some of these folks and say, 'What's your problem? And what was the problem? And what is the problem?'" she said. "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?"
What's their problem?
These "Celebrities" she asks about are - off camera - liars, cheats, adulterers, drunks, druggies, pedophiles, thieves, lowlifes of all stripes who fear anyone that may shine a light on them and expose them for what they really are... very very sick people.
I conclude that - deep down inside - the individuals that launch these kinds of attacks know they are leading lives of depravity and perversion and cannot tolerate anyone that may expose them to the public, potentially destroying their reputations and careers.
It is easy to understand why any of Hollywood's cavorting and drunken blond bimbos do not want to be compared to someone like Michelle Bachmann.
Generally decent people like Palin and Bachmann really scare these scumbags. That's why all this hatred and vitriol are tossed at them every minute of the day.
Consider the sources of these attacks. Study the lives they lead, and then decide who the losers are.
