Huffington Turkeys And Sarah Palin In Shocking Interview

// Last updated on //

As usual, we are looking for propaganda promoted throughout the web when it involves politics and political personalities.  We are especially interested in articles that are so blatantly sexist as this one is.

In this episode, the video (at the end of this article) plays on the fact that many of us like to think of ourselves as smarter than politicians and other accomplished individuals. This video, concocted to convey the stupidity of the second favorite target of the HuffingtonPost, Sarah Palin, is no surprise. Huffington jumped on the video with this article.

The people who presented this video made it for those turkeys among us that fall for this sort of thing. And apparently there are many of us. It got over 4000 DIGGs!!

First of all, how many of you are having turkey this Thanksgiving? The fact is she is supposedly doing an interview at a Turkey farm.  Do the people that endorse such an article think the turkey gets grown from stem cells taken from aborted fetuses and then get delivered to their grocer’s shelves?

The Huff implies Sarah is stupid for being on the farm, but this is a yearly event nationwide for most governors and even the President. They imply that Sarah is stupid for being on the farm while they proceed with normal activities that happen every day, all day.  And this is the busiest season for all turkey farms.

There is even a great chance the video isn’t even real, but even if this footage is real, what would you do half way through an interview if you were focused on the interview and some activity you were not privy to was going on behind you. There are tons of blooper reels of news articles from farms the news people weren’t aware of until after the take.

Finally, and most important, how does anyone even know the editor of this video delivered an actual rendering to YouTube? You can edit any video you want now. You can place any background behind any scene.  With enough work, people have posted landings of UFO’s on YouTube that people actually believed were real when first posted.

This was all manipulation to take a cheap shot and have a laugh at Sarah’s expense.

Sarah is the most popular celebrity of this entire election. Put up a link to Sarah in a bathing suit (edited of course, because no one actually has one), Sarah hunting in a bikini (get out your Adobe Photoshop) or say you have pics of Sarah in the nude and you can get millions of DIGGs. Place any article up on your blog and use Sarah’s name and the hits are unimaginable. Make her look stupid or make fun of her and that doubles your hit rate.

Find any interest article you can think of, real or contrived about Sarah, and you have a winner. This was done for one reason, to suck the public in with a sexist farce.

The question becomes, is it DIGGnified,  or is it FABBricated?

    I am glad to see that someone is finally seeing that attacks on Palin are sexist. If this had been a man, after the election, this all would be forgotten and long over.

    It is sad to see the primary interest in American politics is still male and women are still the victims of such satire.

    It is ironic that the Obama was elected on a message of change, yet we see this childish behavior of the same old Washington. Look at some of the comments here:

    Are you serious? You think this was concocted? If it is, it’s a major fx endeavor. I know, I produced an all green screen/CGI film. The reason it’s so popular is it is comically staged. Same as if she was interviewed while soldiers were being buried behind her on Memorial Day…

    It’s not sexist to say someone shows a lack of awareness. She was there for the traditional “Pardoning ” of a turkey….not to do a feature on turkey slaughtering methods…makes her look as if she doesn’t notice the irony of the situation.

    This was such a sexist article on the Huffington. And none of they can even see it as the stupid and unaccomplished poke fun at a woman they know nothing about.

    There are tons of idiotic moments for Obama during the campaign buried by the media, including his claim there were 60 states!! I think the HuffingtonPost should give equal time. Joe Biden made numerous foolish gaffes, but aything Sarah does is ridiculed.

    How you people can be so stupid and sexist I have no idea. No wonder Hillary lost, you are still sexist.

    Comedians mock Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bill Clinton, and Al Gore relentlessly. Michael Dukakis was excoriated endlessly.

    Sarah Palin is goofy. She will get better, but right now, she is goofy. She talks too much, she is weirdly unprepared for her own Public Relations gimmicks, and she loves publicity.

    There is a reason why politicians don’t give press conferences while they are sitting on a toilet and it has nothing to with sexism or with liberals not knowing how food exits the body.

    Sarah Supporters need to stop feeling sorry for themselves. Since when do conservatives decry “sexism” and PC speech?

    I know for a fact that the cameraman warned her about the shot and she said to go ahead. She is just playing up the caribou, moose field dressing, cutesy thing.

    Yes, so sexist to attack a woman for looking stupid. I mean, sure we do that with George W., but that’s, well, that’s different… Isn’t it?

    keep railing against stem-cells, makes you look of the utmost intelligence.

  11. janine   December 9, 2008 at 9:14 pm

    You think it is sexist to point out the ignorance of a person… please, it would be sexist not to considering we have been point out GW Bush’s.

    I am continually amazed at the stupidity of people that attack Sarah. It appears they all are a very sad lot with no respect for anyone. They also seem illiterate. Like Mister Green who thinks the site is railing on stem cells. The site used it as a metaphor. What kind of idiot would take that seriously?

    And Janine is totally in space. She cannot see how incredibly sexist the attack on Sarah has been. The focus on her is solely because she is a woman, or are you all in a cave not seeing all the nonsense pictures of her head pasted on every picture in creation.

    I don’t think the video was constructed, the guy would have had to be very good, but the point is well taken. The attacks by Huffington are opportunistic and sexist and should include the videos you include on your site of Obama blunders.
