Appearing on Fox Business’ “Varney & Company,” former Alaskan Gov. Sarah Palin told host Stuart Varney that liberals are obsessed with “politics of personal destruction,” and want to “crush” conservatives.
STUART: Now, CNN’s anchor, Carol Costello, she mocked your family after the incident involving your daughter Bristol. Costello did apologize in a statement; she did not apologize on air, so here is my next question. What is it like dealing with that kind of mockery — and that’s what it is — for more than six years? This is a personal question. What does it feel like?
PALIN: I always have to keep in mind a lot of people have a heck of a lot harder than the Palins do. … Every family has a challenge, and I just have to keep that in mind that other people have it a lot tougher than we do.
But the bottom line of course is that liberals love those Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” where they are out there playing the politics of personal destruction. They do want to destroy personally those they disagree with. They are very, very intolerant of those who maybe hold opposing view to their liberal failed agenda views. So, they want to crush us.
STUART: The war on women sometimes seems more like a war on you. At the moment it doesn’t seem to be a winning strategy. Do you agree with that?
PALIN: Absolutely. These liberals are underestimating the wisdom of the people, especially the wisdom of women. What the liberals would like to do, what the Democrats would like to do, is make women feel that they are not capable enough, strong enough, not smart enough to make it on their own to pull themselves up by the bootstraps. Instead, ‘Hey women, you need to rely on big brother government. And those men … that so many women complain about, you need to rely on them to do it for you.’
