Media Treatment Of Sarah Palin: Where In Her Quote Did She Say “Could Kill My Down Syndrome Baby?”

Leftists never cease to amaze me with their blind alligiance to anyone who comes out with a leftist screed, even if such screed is proven to be a lie.

All over the Internet, you read about idiots repeating, like trained parrots, the same lie over and over. Somewhere, someone twisted the facts and claimed that Sarah Palin said that Obama’s “death panels” could kill her Down Syndrome baby.

Well, let’s test that claim by comparing it with the actual statement that Sarah wrote on Facebook:

The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama’s “death panel” so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their “level of productivity in society,” whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil.

Yes, she did use the words “death panel.” But that is the limit of the truth in the leftist claims. Nowhere in the above quote did she say “kill my Down Syndrome baby” or anything about killing her grandparents.

But that doesn’t matter to leftist liberals. They simply follow their leaders like sheep without even bothering to check out whether they are being told the truth or not. Then, these same “enlightened” progressives go out and repeat the lie like mindless trained parrots.

We should note that Gov. Palin did say the following: “based on a subjective judgment of their ‘level of productivity in society,’ whether they are worthy of health care.”

In that, her concerns are extremely valid as I pointed out in the following post:

And Speaking Of People Carrying Swastikas

In that post you will find the writings of Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, advisor to Barack Obama on health care issues, who embraces a health care policy known as the “complete lives system” in which infants, elderly and special needs patients are deliberately denied medical treatment so that others (i.e. more productive people) will always have adequate care.

If any libs out there want to argue this point or argue the misquote, please feel free to leave a thoughful response. I’d love to hear from you.

  1. If we took all the lies, and distortions regarding Sarah Palin by the left, and laid them end to end, they would easily circle the globe. Most of these people spreading the lies and distortions live in a bubble, they talk to each other, they read each others blogs, and columns, and just repeat what they hear and read. If a lie or distortion aids their cause, they’re perfectly OK with that.

    The left has spent the last several days saying that the term “death panels” isn’t in the bill, well, Palin never said it was. For at least a week prior to Palin’s statement, the media and the dems (same thing) were shifting the focus of the debate to the participants of those attending the townhalls, they were strictly avoiding discussing the actual bill. What Palin did is refocus the debate on what is in the bill. Good for her.
