Liberal Wrath: A Post by Conservative Girl with a Voice

Carrie Prejean is so right when she recently said there is a double standard when it comes to the treatment conservative women and liberal women receive from the media and people in general. Here is what Carrie told NBC's Meredith Vieira regarding this obvious double standard:

"Well, I think it's important for people to understand. I think that Americans heard only bits and pieces of what really happened and I think that there is a liberal bias in the media. And it's unfortunate that conservative women are attacked, they are attacked for their beliefs and it's unacceptable and it shouldn't happen. And so many Americans are frustrated, so many Americans believe that their beliefs are under attack and that they should silent and free speech doesn't exist. Since when does free speech not exist? Since when is someone able to go on national TV and call someone the most awful names you could ever call a woman and get away with it?"

Not only was Carrie called the most evil names, but she was dragged through the mud. People she hasn't seen or talked too in years are all of a sudden popping up and wrongly exploiting her. Carrie doesn't deserve this. While it is clear she has made mistakes in the past, no one is perfect and she has vocally admitted her faults on multiple occasions, unlike our president I might add. It is time to leave this poor young woman alone. Unfortunately, this will not happen. We live in an age in which conservative women are attacked because they don't believe in things liberal women believe in. While many are criticizing Carrie for comparing herself to Sarah, Carrie is accurate in comparing the treatment she has received to the treatment Sarah has received. Like Sarah, Carrie is a conservative. Like Sarah, Carrie is a Christian, and like Sarah, Carrie finds herself in the middle of an on-going battle with the liberal msm (mainstream media).

Now, picture this: Picture if Sarah was Hillary Clinton, and picture if Carrie was a liberal pageant contestant who had publicly voiced her support for gay marriage. You see where I'm going with this, right? Not only would these women receive better treatment from the media, but they would suddenly become the poster women for "The Modern-Day Woman," "The Modern-Day Feminist." Don't get me wrong, I publicly stated and wrote about the unfortunate treatment Hillary received during the 2008 campaign, but the treatment she received was a lot more positive than the treatment Sarah received. This is all because of the double standard that exists today. Look at Hillary now. She is praised for the job she is doing as Secretary of State, and Sarah is continually mocked by the liberal msm and the vile left. Everything Sarah says and does is put under the microscope while Hillary continues to receive praise. I have no problem with individuals being praised when they do well and holding someone accountable when they mess up, but when it comes to Sarah, it seems that she can never win when it comes to the treatment she receives from the left.

Take Sarah's use of Facebook for example. While I find her use of the social networking site to spread her common sense message of conservatism brilliant, she gets made fun of for posting on the site. Take a step back to the 2008 presidential campaign. Who was praised for spreading his message on the internet via social networking? Then-candidate Obama. What gives? Not only is Sarah doing exactly what President Obama did during the campaign, but I would argue that she is doing a better job of spreading the word than he did. Yet, instead of commending her for using the internet to spread her message, she is made fun of just as she was when she opened a Twitter account. I guarantee if a liberal woman chose to spread her message via the internet, she would be praised for her efforts. MSNBC would probably air a how-to segment. This further illustrates the difference between the treatment liberal women like Nancy Pelosi and conservative women like Sarah receive from the wacky, liberal msm.

Conservative women like Sarah and Carrie are phenomenally strong women who should be praised for being examples of women who are making a difference by sticking to their beliefs; instead, conservative women are attacked because they believe in everything the liberal left loathe. I can relate to Sarah and Carrie in that I too am attacked just because I am a conservative woman. I guarantee many conservative women reading this feel the same way. I am not ashamed to say that I am a conservative woman; in fact, I am PROUD to say that I am a conservative woman. I could care less what the liberal left thinks of me, and I know Sarah and Carrie feel the same way. I actually am mutual friends with a couple of people who are friends of Carries here in San Diego, and she IS as nice a person as you see on the television. She DOES NOT deserve the treatment she is receiving. I am proud to have women like Carrie and Sarah on the conservative side of the spectrum.

The liberals out there will preach that conservative women are not real women, but nothing could be further from the truth. Just as liberal women have values they hold close to their hearts, conservative women do as well. It is important to note that Sarah and Carrie are attacked because they hold firm to their beliefs. They are not afraid to stand up and speak out, which is why they continue to be attacked. In standing up and speaking out, they become a threat to everything the left holds dear. Whether it be gay marriage or abortion, the left is threatened that Sarah and Carrie, and conservative women in general, don't abide to what the msm sees as the ideal woman, the ideal feminist. The left is scared of conservative women because they see women who are able to have it all. They are able to have a husband and children while still having a great career.

Conservative women believe in things like life, freedom and traditional marriage. Conservative women believe in the Constitution, free market and capitalism. Conservative women don't want socialism or big government. The liberal left just does not get get. They don't understand how any woman could call themselves a conservative. Well, I could say the same thing about them. How can you be for abortion when having an abortion ends life? How can you be for gay marriage when the Bible specifically says marriage is between one man and one woman? It's time members of the liberal left practice the tolerance they preach so much about and allow others to practice their First Amendment right to speak out on issues that are important to them. I am not going to hold my breath because members of the liberal left seem hell-bent on destroying any threat that stands in their way to achieving their liberal-left agenda. I, for one, am not going to back down; I am not going anywhere. Like Sarah and Carrie, I am going to stand my ground and continue my message of common-sense conservatism, and I hope you all stand up and speak out with me as we continue to fight the good fight!!
