Brigitte Bardot: Sarah Palin Is "A Disgrace For Women"

Brigitte Bardot: Sarah Palin Is "A Disgrace For Women"

Click to Read

Brigitte Bardot: Sarah Palin Is "A Disgrace For Women" French film legend-turned-activist Brigitte Bardot took a swipe at Sarah Palin on Tuesday, saying the US vice presidential candidate was a disgrace to women. "I hope you lose these elections because that would be a victory for the world. By denying the responsibility of man in global warming, by advocating gun rights and making statements that are disconcertingly stupid, you are a disgrace to women and you alone represent a terrible threat, a true environmental catastrophe," Bardot wrote in an open letter to Republican John McCain's running mate in the November vote.

Just wanted to chime in :WAVE: Miss you guys! Bardot is insane. I don't know why outlets still give room or her propaganda.

There obviously always have been divisions between different political parties, but I think they've become more profound with each election. It pays some people to exploit the more emotional differences, so they do and that makes the divide wider and I don't know how we get around them.

What a great comment! This reminds me of the people who have posted videos on youtube linking Obama to the failure of Fannie and Freddie, or the people who insist that Obama wasn't born in this country and somehow played a hand in Kenya's recent political violence. Did we have such polarizing political extremism reaching so many people like back in the Reagan v Mondale days?

I'm sorry, I misunderstood. I thought you meant at the actual debates when you mentioned debate discussions! :oops:

No I don't want to fight, but when we agree to chill, we need to know what 'chill' means. I think most people know what it's like to agree to a truce in an argument only to be zinged by the other person who insists that it wasn't an intentional zinger, just a fact. And you asked for information on the events I referred to, so I gave it to you. It seems to me to say that we should test our chillness in the debate discussions is to say that we should stick to the merits of the discussions and not accuse anyone of being a flip-flopper, a hypocrite or any of those things.

Steph, so you just want to fight? We are all responsible for other's actions now? That is a slippery and scary slope. You think there aren't scary extremists for Obama? And who said that the debates should be "chill"? The debates are actually between the candidates and actually about the issues. Not some supporter said this and that.

We should try to chill, but you're kind of demonstrating how far things have to go. Shrugging off the calls at yesterday's rallies with did the candidate hear them and there are extremists for all candidates. Palin accuses Obama of palling with terrorists - and that claim was well defended here. And even if the candidates didn't hear the calls, they've had time to see the tape and say something today. They haven't. "At a McCain rally on Monday, television stations caught audio of a crowd member calling Obama a "terrorist," while Dana Milbank reported that "[o]ne Palin supporter shouted a racial epithet at an African American sound man for a network and told him, 'Sit down, boy.'" Also on Monday, at a Palin rally, one member of the audience yelled, "Kill him!..." So, let's try to be chill in the debate discussions?

Well said.

Well, in the end, we are all in this boat together, let's not sink it.

Hell, it's worth a try, but at this point, I think it's delusional to think that we can set aside our strong passions and be nice. Both sides have to stop doing it, and that's a tall order.
Great-Sommelier Great-Sommelier 8 years
So we should just not try?

In a perfect world, GS. But unfortunately, we're far from it.

What racial slur? I seriously haven't heard about it, could you post a link or something for me please? I needs me some info!
Great-Sommelier Great-Sommelier 8 years
"So, how do all we chill out?" By chilling out. Realizing we are all in this together no matter who wins. Not burn all the bridges between people that don't think like we do. Etc.

Didn't McCain say at the beginning of the summer that he would not tolerate racial attacks on Obama? Or did I just dream it?

You can't really tell people to chill out,(it'd be nice though) but each side eggs each other on. Politics is something that people are fiercely passionate about and effects everyone. We're lucky to live in a country where we can express our distaste for one politician and love for another, whether it's considered hateful or not.
Great-Sommelier Great-Sommelier 8 years
All this guilty until proven innocent and guilt because they think differently than you, and seeing everyone as an extremist, like the person who yelled that most certainly is, is ridiculous. There are crazies for every politician, sportsteam, and celebrity. That doesn't represent the people that they are fanatic about.
Great-Sommelier Great-Sommelier 8 years
Is there proof they heard the remark?
stephley stephley 8 years
I agree GS, this could lead to violence. But yesterday, when people at their rallies called Obama a terrorist, made a racial remark to a journalist, and even yelled 'kill him' (which the Secret Service is now investigating), neither McCain or Palin told the crowd 'there's no room for that talk in our campaign'.. and people here defended Palin's claim that Obama pals around with terrorists. So, how do all we chill out?
