Obama Supporters Call Sarah Palin a C*nt – Where is the Media
Cross-posted by Susan at Wake up America
Update by Maggie: Heard a few snippets of reporting on this today on Fox News’ America’s Newsroom. Anchor and attorney Megyn Kelly mused that this is going too far, and should not be considered free speech in America (paraphrased).
The media has been busy reporting the “anger” of the conservatives at the McCain/Palin rallies, how supporters want McCain to get tougher on Obama and force Obama’s terrorist associations into the eyes of the public and how McCain has been forced to “defend” poor little Barack Obama…..but where are the media reports about Obama supporters wearing t-shirts calling Sarah Palin a Cunt?
Have you seen this reported anywhere at all?
Please let me know where and I will add the link as an update.
This picture came to me via email, the email text is below:
I was at a Sarah Palin event in Philadelphia, at the Park Hyatt Hotel – late Saturday afternoon (Oct. 11th). If you are easily grossed out by the “C” word, I am sorry. But as Andrea says below, if McCain supporters wore a shirt that said “Obama is a Nigger” or even “Obama is a Bastard” or “Obama is a Terrorist” at an Obama Rally, they would either be thrown off the premises, have their heads kicked in, or even be detained at the local police station (I know this for a fact: I just had on a McCain button at a recent Obama event and I didn’t think I was going to get out alive).
Sorry the picture is not clearer. But these four young people were right in front of the hotel. They have on the nicest shirts. There were worse. There was group as well carrying around a fake dead fetus – exclaiming that “abortion should have been the path for Bristol(?) Palin”. And quite a few smoke bombs, etc. etc.
I also had some nice words thrown at me.
There were about 500 organized protesters. And about 500 not so organized at this event. The police and hotel security and secret service were letting me all the way up to the hotel steps. In a few cased … a few protesters got into the lobby.
In my family, the “C” word is about as bad as you can get.
Was this reported on the Philadelphia News. No!. Was anyone outraged? No!. All that was on the Philadelphia local news last night was: Obama was at several rallies in Philadelphia earlier in the day (but went home Saturday night to be with his children). Obama and Palin were in Philly on the same day. And was there any mention of Palin – No!. In the Sports section of the local evening news at 11:00PM, they did mention that Palin was at the Philadelphia Flyers game “dropping the first (hockey) puck”. The guy said it with a smirk. Then he added that Sarah Palin WAS NOT going home to spend the evening with her children.
Sorry the attached picture is not clearer. I need a new camera. Please circulate this to as many people as possible and let them see the double standard.
Not good stuff for a Sunday morning. But this is the REAL AMERICA!.

A PS from Andrea (last name redacted by WUA):
Calling Sarah Palin a c*nt would be the equivalent of a group of protesters calling Obama a nigger. If that ever happened you know we would be seeing it for weeks replayed endlessly with discussions about how the race is still close because Americans are racist.
I wonder what is taking the media so long to report something this obvious?
[Update] More hatred and vitriol from the left via Malkin.
