Geraldine Ferraro Dies, Left Grossly Responds By Using Her Death to Bash Palin

March 26, 2011

Originally posted at Newsreal’s That’s What She Said:

Vile, yet predictable. The left has no qualms about politicizing absolutely anything on the backs of the dead. You’d think they’d at least take a moment to mourn Geraldine Ferraro’s death and give their condolences to her family and loved ones, but you’d be wrong.

Sarah Palin herself issued this statement:

My family and I would like to express our sincere condolences to the family of Geraldine Ferraro. When I had the honor of working alongside Geraldine on election night last year, we both discussed the role of women in politics and our excited expectation that someday that final glass ceiling would be shattered by the election of a woman president. She was an amazing woman who dedicated her life to public service as a teacher, prosecutor, Congresswoman, and Vice Presidential candidate. She broke one huge barrier and then went on to break many more. The world will miss her. May she rest in peace and may her example of hard work and dedication to America continue to inspire all women.

The left? They said things like this:

RT @DCdebbie: RIP Geraldine Ferraro, breaker of glass ceilings, a *real* feminist and the first and only-genuine female VP #FuckPalin

And this:

Left, heal thyself.

Rest in peace, Geraldine Ferraro. My thoughts, prayers and deepest condolences are with your loved ones.

    What do you expect? When has the left ever shown any class?

    Lori,

    It’s kind of disingenuous to slap up Twitter comments from random people and compare them to Sarah Palin’s statement on the death of Geraldine Ferraro. Since you hold Sarah in such high esteem, why not compare her statement with notable people on “the left” instead?

    For example:

    “Geraldine will forever be remembered as a trailblazer who broke down barriers for women, and Americans of all backgrounds and walks of life. … Sasha and Malia will grow up in a more equal America because of the life Geraldine Ferraro chose to live.”

    — statement by President Barack Obama.

    “Gerry Ferraro was one of a kind — tough, brilliant, and never afraid to speak her mind or stand up for what she believed in — a New York icon and a true American original. She was a champion for women and children and for the idea that there should be no limits on what every American can achieve.”

    — statement by President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

    “In 1984, her nomination was greeted with thunderous applause in the Moscone Center in San Francisco. The drumbeat that Geraldine Ferraro began that day in July will continue for a long time to come. As a woman and Italian American, my family and I loved her dearly and will miss her personally.”

    — statement by House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi.

    “Gerry Ferraro symbolized grace in every aspect of her life, as a wife, mother, grandmother, community activist, lawyer, businesswoman, philanthropist and public servant. She broke barriers with a matter-of-factness, modesty, and grace that made her achievements all the more important and becoming.”

    — statement by Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.

    “To residents of Queens, she was our hometown hero who never forgot her roots. Today we mourn the passing of a great American success story.”

    — statement by Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y.

    “She had to overcome a lot of impediments. She can certainly be counted among the pioneers in making certain that gender should not be a factor in limiting a person’s contribution to society.”

    — statement by Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y.

    Now lets take a look at a Catholic website, and see what they had to say about Geraldine Ferraro.

    http://icatholic.catholictv.com/forum/topics/geraldine-ferraro-death-of-a

    Please join me in praying for the soul of Geraldine Ferraro.

    Ms. Ferraro supported abortion and partial birth abortion throughout her tenure in politics. She was responsible, in part, for the murder of millions of innocent children in the womb.

    Ms. Ferraro was gifted with Baptism in the Roman Catholic Church. She was an educated woman. And yet from all outward appearances her position in regards to upholding the teaching of the Church was one of Non Servium.

    There is no evidence that Ms. Ferraro repented of her public sin on her deathbed. Let us hope that she lived her life in invincible ignorance, or had some sort of mental defect that caused her to rebel against the Church. How terrible for her to now stand in front of the judgement seat of Almighty God with the blood of unborn on her hands.

    Let us also pray that the Catholic Church not permit the parade of pro-abortion “Catholic” politicians, who will be attending her funeral Mass, to receive the Blessed Sacrament.

    Here’s the first reply:

    What? Another pro choice politician who claims to be Catholic? Throw her in the same box as Ted Kennedy; they deserve each other. When Nancy Pelosi dies, throw her in with them.

    Geraldine Ferraro was a person who was deeply commited to pro-choice issues.

    Why don’t you tell us how you really feel, Lori.

    Oh come on, why in heck was Sarah Palin saying nice things about Geraldine Ferraro? How naive. Forget about the abortion issue, I’m an ex New Yorker and as I recall there were many questionable issues inFerraro’s background. Crocodile tears Sarah? Or just holier than thou? Give me a break about who is using who for political purposes. Just girls supporting girls. Guess I’m just feeling snarky tonight.
