Palin Picks Another Loser: Star Parker
Many Americans don't know who Star Parker is... but she's working hard to change that. Parker went from being the archetypal Republican nightmare-- an African-American unemployed single mother who got abortions the way normal people use tissues and who was arrested multiple times on multiple charges-- to being a right wing huckster pedaling Republican nonsense-for-pay. Her specialty is phony moralizing and African-American self-loathing, as in her pathetic autobiography, Pimps, Whores and Welfare Brats: From Welfare Cheat to Conservative Messenger. Yes, now she pimps full-time for the GOP-- and they pay her well. Her latest publicity stunt is a congressional run against Laura Richardson, the Democrat who represents most of Long Beach, Compton and Carson. It's a strongly Democratic district-- Obama took 80% of the vote and Richardson ran unopposed-- so it isn't a serious run. And the unseriousness of it even attracted the least serious Republican in America; she's been endorsed by... Sarah Palin.
Widely considered one of the most prominent Uncle Tom's the GOP was able to rope into their service, she also "wrote" a disgusting and fatuous book called Uncle Sam's Plantation: How Big Government Enslaves America's Poor and What We Can Do About It to push anti-working family nostrums to poor people. The Republican Party cleaned her up nicely before they sent her out to talk trash about poor people and tell everyone that they should read the Bible and hope for a better life in Heaven.
If you watch the infamous video above, in which Parker was a guest on The View in 2007, you'll watch her explaining Republican hatred of gay people and why she's anti-Choice, why she doesn't believe in evolution and why she is against the legal use of contraceptives. Sounds perfect for Palin, right? Watch this one too, folks... this is the Republican Party of 2010 that the corporate media is trying to push as an alternative to Barack Obama. Republicans love these kinds of talking points that twist Jesus Christ's words to fit their greed and selfishness. According to haters and pimps like Parker, Jesus really meant that only rich men riding camels will enter Heaven thru the eye of the celestial needle. They just eat it up. She won't get many voters but she'll sell plenty of soap on Fox.
