This week's Geller column is up at WND. I review the Palin documentary, America's "Rocky Balboa." Few know her monumental achievements in such a short period of time, not just as governor but as mayor and Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission Chairwoman.
One Alaskan commented at another blog: “I grew up in Eagle River, Alaska during the 60’s; trust me, the oil companies owned that state. We used to make a game whenever we kids rode into Anchorage with our parents to name a large building that was not owned by one of them. (And don’t let anyone tell you the oil companies didn’t also own the Native tribes; the most powerful tribe, the Tlingits, wouldn’t sneeze without their permission.) When I grew up and returned to visit in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s, it still hadn’t changed. They were the power in Alaska. It says everything about Palin that she not only stood up to them but won. This single accomplishment defines the strength and integrity of that woman.”
Bannon kicks off the film by exposing the fierce pathology behind Palin Derangement Syndrome with a series of vidclips of well-known “celebrities” spewing X-rated misogynistic, sexist, and vicious remarks about Palin. It speaks more to their character, or lack thereof. Bannon actually has two versions of the film -- the X-rated version and the PG-13 edit for family audiences.
America’s elites foist upon the American people an inverted morality. We are admonished and guilt-tripped into forgiving the outrageous indiscretions of Barney Frank’s gay prostitution ring out of his apartment, Bill Clinton’s secretions on a young intern’s navy blue evening dress, Charlie Rangel’s thieving and corruption and now Weinergate, but we are to show no mercy to Sarah Palin’s goodness and morality. The uber-left is big hearted for the heartless, but set no store by the decent. This is what the ruling class now demands of us. Our political betters expect -- hell, demand – that we condone and sanction decadence and moral bankruptcy, and condemn the righteous and the good. This movie makes clear the demonization of the good for being the good.
Palin documentary: 2012 game changer Pamela Geller, World Net Daily
Filmmaker Steve K. Bannon invited me to an exclusive screening of his new Sarah Palin documentary "The Undefeated" in New York last weekend. The film is a game changer. Palin is a political force not seen since Ronald Reagan, little understood by elites on both sides of the aisle. Bannon has done this country a great service. Palin is one of the most media-saturated of all public figures, and yet few know her story or her exceptional record.
