How To Drive Liberals Insane

Sic vis pacem, para bellum?

Sarah para bellum!

How to drive liberals insane? Print this picture and paste it up everywhere.

It’s absolutely every right-wing concept rolled into one. Even the campaign buttons. Iconographic overload! We’ve got Sarah, with Those Glasses and That Hair, in a sturdy working outfit, looking very strong and fit. But with sexy red shoes (squashing Alinky’s Rules For Radicals underfoot), and the viewing angle is almost an upskirt. Almost, and you know you looked! Constitution and Bible in her pocket, 5 campaign issue buttons on her chest including one for Reagen and another for Pro-Life, her personal ammo can and her trusty, almost still smoking all American Remington 870 home defense gun, 3 rounds fired, hulls in her lap. Holding firmly the Gadsden snake, text message about death panels on her cell phone, backdropped against the American flag, and if you look real close the Motivator message is “2012”. A picture being worth a thousand words or so, Sarah is giving a stump speech here, while literally sitting on a stump.

And the image format itself is a strong salute to another, earlier feminine icon: Rockwell’s original Rosie:

Ok, this Palin poster is not exactly new. It’s been around several years now, and long ago came to the attention of the Kos Kids. Who cares? But it’s back in the small news again. Repetition builds reinforcement. Or maybe it was just a slow news rainy day and they needed a story. Like today. Like me. So enjoy it all over again.

In the shadow of Capitol Hill, a forgotten patriot consigned to America’s trash heap of the unemployed has created a new national symbol that celebrates the values Sarah Palin holds true.

A man who goes only by the name of Dale has cast Sarah Palin as the lost daughter of the World War II heroine, Rosie the Riveter – but with a twist.

Shotgun News runs the whole story, and tells us a lot about the artist, Dale Brown, and the inspiration behind all of it.

Shortly after Sarah Para Bellum appeared on the conservative web site, Free Republic, a writer with the screen name Devtob, launched into a rant against Dale’s illustration on the liberal blog, the Daily Kos.

Dale noted in our conversation that Sarah Palin as Rosie the Riveter wasn’t originally his idea. It was inspired by an email from the editor of the online, All Right Magazine.

Still, the larger question looms: was Dale destined to render Sarah as Rosie?

“When I was 12 or 13, I was enamored of Michelangelo, studied him pretty intensely and at the time I lived with my grandparents,” Dale recalled. “I decided to decorate their basement wall with Isaiah from the Sistine Ceiling, and that’s what Rockwell based his Rosie the Riveter on.” [link has pic]

So by association, Sarah is Rosie is Isaiah. Sarah Palin, Prophet. Oooh, I can feel the lib’s blood pressure spiking!

The assortment of pins and button on Rosie’s coveralls have been replaced with five buttons that express Palin’s energy policy “drill baby, drill” from her Vice President debate with Joe Biden. Another button on Palin says “choose life.” The others refer to President Reagan and an Old Testament verse. Dale also added a crucifix around Sarah’s neck.
...
Rockwell emphasizes Rosie’s can-do spirit by depicting her right foot crushing a copy of Hitler’s Mein Kampf. Dale replaced it with Saul Alinsky’s 1971 perennial handbook for grassroots organizing, Rules for Radicals.

Pretty damned outstanding IMO. And for the talking head TV pundits that just don’t get it, the whole Palin meme is right here where you can see it. It couldn’t be any plainer if she dressed in a green choir rob and wore a spiky crown while holding up a flaming torch. She may or may not wind up as an elected leader, but her persona has come to symbolize all these points. She represents. And that’s why the Right is wild about her. Voice of America in person. And it’s even more fitting that she isn’t an elected official. Because none of them really seem to represent us anymore.

Somebody said something about not posting Motivators/DeMotivators? God, guns, guts, sex appeal, righteousness. I think this one will do.

PS - this is America, so of course the image is for sale. Zazzle has it as a poster, and probably as a shirt, cup holder, coffee mug, and commemorative plate.

... yeah, I know. It may not really be the Gadsden snake, or even the original Gerrymander one. But it looks kinda like both, and it’s in black and white. Hey, it symbolizes those other two. Hating snakes is real old time stuff, straight out of Genesis.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
