Trig Palin celebrated his third birthday Tuesday. Predictably, liberals couldn’t help themselves and looked hateful and foolish as a result. Professor Jacobson at Legal Insurrection responded: Trig Is A “Prop” To Them Only Because They Don’t Like Seeing A Child With Down’s Syndrome and quoted his inital assessment made in July 2009 (he’s prescient, eh?):
If Sarah Palin had aborted Trig, the left would have been okay with it. If she hid Trig offstage and out of sight, all would be good. But treat the child as you would any other child, and that cannot be tolerated.
There is something about a Down syndrome child in plain view which has exposed the moral and emotional bankruptcy of the left-wing of the Democratic party. And they hate Sarah Palin because deep down, they hate themselves for being who they are.
It’s incredibly sad to see people who argue Palin uses Trig as a prop. In their minds he would be better served institutionalized somewhere rather than out and about with his family. Is this what’s become of liberals? Hide debility in any way and argue for the lack of medical care since it’s all a waste in the end?
Wesley Smith concurs:
I have said that the source of some, perhaps much, of the irrational, seething hatred on the Left for Sarah Palin was her decision to give birth to Trig (who has Down syndrome) and openly love him unconditionally. (This isn’t the same thing as believing she isn’t of presidential material, which one can believe and not descend into venomous loathing).
I love it when friends claim Democrats are the compassionate ones, don’t you?
