Sandra Bernhard: Racist and Colluder


“Now you got Uncle Women, like Sarah Palin, who jumps on the shit and points her fingers at other women. Turncoat bitch! Don’t you fuckin’ reference Old Testament, bitch!” Bernhard said. “You stay with your new Goyish crappy shiksa funky bullshit! Don’t you touch my Old Testament, you bitch! Because we have left it open for interpre-ta-tion! It is no longer taken literally! You whore in your fuckin’ cheap New Vision cheap-ass plastic glasses and your [sneering voice] hair up. A Tina Fey-Megan Mullally brokedown bullshit moment.”

I know that some people believe in word reclamation, however I feel that this is nothing more than using the masters tools.  As repellent as Sarah Palin is, calling her a bitch and a whore are unacceptable. These are terms routinely used by patriarchy to demean and debase women.  Why should what she chooses to do with her vagina have any baring on her value as a person?  In case you’re forgetting Ms. Bernhard you also have a vagina between your legs. 

This kind of commentary is not new or cutting edge. It is circa sexism from the beginning of time immemorial;  that’s right since the first time a man thought it was okay to beat a woman, rape a woman, or abuse a woman because he has a dick.  When women employ this kind of attack, all they are doing is reaffirming patriarchy’s instance that we should be held to this kind of ridiculous standard. If it applies to Palin then it applies to all women. 

“A Man’s World, It’s a White Man’s World, It’s a F–ked Up White Man’s Racist World”

Glad to know that she believes in the white supremacist state, but when it is followed with a warning for Palin to stay out of Manhattan least she be “gang raped by her black brothers“, it certainly promotes the very racism she is decrying.

All black men are rapists, hungrily craving white female flesh.  They simply loose all sense of self at the mere thought of white pussy because they are one step above the beasts.  This kind of thought pattern is exactly what Sandra is promoting.  It is dehumanizing and racist. 

No matter your position on Palin threatening her with rape cannot be deemed as anything less than assaultative speech, meant to remind women that if they don’t obey “the men” and properly perform womanhood, the penalty is rape.  Oh yeah, and if you are a really bad girl we will get the “darkies” to rape you. Remind me again how this shit is remotely feminist? 

Yeah Sandra, what you said was racist, and it was in collusion with patriarchy; hence I am handing out yet another colluder award. The next time you have verbal diarrhea take some Immodium,  the world really should be spared this kind of crap.
