Sarah Palin Calls Herself a Feminist While Blasting Left-Wing Feminism (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Dec 17th 2010 7:10PM
In an interview with Bill O'Reilly on 'The Factor' (weekdays, 9 PM ET on Fox News) Sarah Palin expressed her displeasure that left-leaning groups have "co-opted" feminism, because she believes their ideology has made women too dependent on others.

"(Most women's organizations) do not empower women, in fact they make women sometimes feel weak and incapable of taking care of themselves and their families," Palin argued. "Too many feminists today have decided that women need someone else to take care of them, and that's the most hypocritical feminist mantra that there can be."

O'Reilly then asked Palin why she considers herself a feminist.

"Because I am self-reliant and quite independent and have been lucky ... to be brought up in a community and a state where women are expected to work as hard as the men are, and even engage in the same type jobs that they are."

Given her embrace of this brand of rugged feminism, maybe Palin's slogan for any upcoming political campaigns should be "I am Mama Grizzly, hear me roar."

Sarah, you are certifiably insane, and so is Bill O'Reilly, but I'm thinking even he knows what a feminist is, and it isn't you, ex-beauty queen. Just because you blast a caribou to smithereens (after how many tries? Was a man holding it in place so you could shoot it?) and finally kill the poor thing like any stupid, bloodthirsty male hunter would do doesn't make you a feminist, hon.

She just said nothing, just blabbed some words that any teenager could have spoken better. Dahhh Sarah.
You live in the stone age, if you need to eat you hunt. Poor Sarah, cannot afford to buy food and help keep people working??? Go Vegan. It is healthier anyway and leave those poor lovely animals alone. Do you eat the wolves you have killed by helicopters too?

Where is her opinion based? To just say that their (democrats) ideology has made women too dependent on others: it sounds like she is just slamming them because they are democrats. She is not using any specifics to back up her opinions. It just shows that if you are Sarah Palin you can "spout off" anything and the public is going to be there to see what you say next. Sarah Palin referring to someone else as hypocritical.. that's a good one !!!

Once again...dumb and dumber. She has no concept of what entails to be a feminist.
