Two of the Sarah Palin-hating blogs intentionally misunderstood Adrienne's metaphor and tried to spin it as saying that Adrienne wanted to put Levi down as in euthanization. This was the farthest thing from Adrienne's mind and would be totally inconsistent with the statement she made in the immediately preceding paragraph:
I believe there's hope for Levi; I really do. And I hope he grabs ahold of
it soon because he's treading on very thin Alaska ice.
Since the hater blogs chose to misinterpret Adrienne's metaphor by using a definition for "put down" that is totally inconsistent with Adrienne's intentions, I decided to check an online dictionary. And here are the meanings for "put down" that are constistent with Adrienne's intentions.
to bring to an end : stopSo Adrienne's use of the word "put down" was totally appropriate for its context. It is to the haters' discredit that they attempted to turn an innocent remark into something that it was not.
to make ineffective : check
But then that is what we have come to expect from the evilmongers who habitually use lies and distortions to attack Governor Palin and her family.
Adrienne Ross is a valued member of the excellent team of authors on the Sarah Web Brigade blog and Sarah Palin Information Blog. She is also an author on US4Palin, C4P, and SarahNet. In addition, she is in a leadership position with the 2012 Draft Sarah Palin Committee. Like Sarah Palin, she loves her God and her country and walks the walk with her conservative values.
It is sad to see people so filled with hatred that they will turn the truth into a lie. But that is what is happening on a daily basis on the blogs that attacked Adrienne. However, the truth will prevail, as it always does in the end.
