They'll dispute by liberals stay in and day out and the elite media -- it gives all pass until of course it is a conservative was a verbal slept.
So tonight we'll take a comprehensive look at just how rampant -- liberal hate -- is we will expose the hypocrisy of those who call for.
Civil discourse but don't practice what they preach.
And you'll also hear from the people who are ruthlessly and relentlessly targeted by liberal haters.
And held up and ridicule in news outlets that -- themselves as impartial and honest.
And that's where we Begin tonight special.
With a woman that is perhaps the most vilified -- most targeted that's former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
From her family tour appearance she's been called every name in the book let's take a look.
I know why you're happy today the good news is Sarah Palin can complete a sentence.
I don't know I'm old fashioned I believe the vice president isn't supposed to sound like the host of romper room.
-- proved herself to be.
I think she's proven herself to be profoundly stupid I hope there are barely -- -- so that they split the middle.
-- -- -- at Bloomingdale's to update or slugging flight attendant look old.
Thinking of -- the.
I'd like to say this is the worst of it but sadly it's not joining me now to respond is Governor Palin former governor -- Alaska and Fox -- conservative governor good to see you thank you for being with us.
Of course -- thank you I -- -- a personal hole.
But they're not gonna get into some things involving your family that have been said about your kids a new in your Lopes and on every level you've been attacked.
Why does this take a personal told this impact your family.
And we when he attacks are against me politically especially -- it doesn't really bother me because I know what's really important and I know what -- with this but I do have to admit when the shots.
Are taken at this question my youngest my son who has Down syndrome and others with special needs in this.
Wonderful country of ours then and those I do take personally -- those shots -- and am I sure wish that there was more than I can do about.
Those attacks on the defenseless I wish I could defend them more.
You know I think that's very well said I think any parent would understand this and this is what makes.
You know this hypocrisy issue so transparent to me and and actually I gotta give a lot of credit to your daughter.
Bristol now -- for example Michelle Obama just showed up on the David Letterman program and this is what he had said about your daughter.
One awkward moment though during the game maybe heard about it maybe -- -- one of the highlight reels one awkward moment for Sarah Palin of the Yankee game.
During the seventh inning her daughter was knocked up by Alex right.
Felt that this is interest and why would the First Lady the week after the president.
You know lectures the country on civility and calls Sandra flock.
Why would she go on that program.
Yes -- have a choice as to whether you will participate.
And then that that environment of that leno's then -- -- not necessarily Jay Leno -- he's been relatively good but the Letterman instead -- Mars that.
Some of the ESPN sports.
Network teens even that have been really -- that.
Against unwed teenage mothers and those with handicaps and and women and Christians and conservatives yeah sure just whether -- Perpetuate what it is that they -- by -- participants.
And we're not and that you know I choose not to -- He's got is it who have asked me these hosts of these programs have asked me over and over again over these years if I would.
-- come on and be a -- and they promised to be fair and they still don't get it why I continue to say no thank you you know I I choose to up.
Participates in some healthier more proof that debit venue is -- -- amateur swimming you're going to be a participant or not.
You know -- -- they are very proud of your daughter Bristol she wrote an open letter to the president the headline number was Mr.
President when should I expect your call.
And -- talking about the -- -- issue.
And and it wouldn't that the president spoke out about this he mentioned his daughters and your daughter said you know what -- -- your kid should be able to speak their minds and engage the culture I look forward to seeing the good things that Malia and Sasha end up doing.
But here's why -- a little surprised my phone hasn't wrong you're one million dollar donor Bill Maher has said reprehensible things about my family.
He made fun of my brother because it has Down syndrome he said I was blind so hard the baby fell loud and and a classy move.
He did this Wallace -- producers put up the cover of my book which tells about the forgiveness and redemption that I found.
In god after my past public mistakes.
I think I read that I think in this is a great point and why hasn't why it does the president.
Lecture us about civility.
Talk about his own kids which I -- -- I wanna keep his kids out of -- they -- -- great kids.
And call center flock and take -- million dollars from Bill Maher who -- horrific things about you about your family about your daughter.
About Rick santorum's family about Rick santorum's kids.
And -- why what what.
How do we explain this.
Yeah I was very proud of Bristol also for making those good points and she's a strong independent young woman has taken full responsibility.
For her past actions -- -- revolted and kind of are premature -- -- -- adolescents and the main thrust into adulthood as she has.
Part of that is trying to hold others accountable when they.
It attack others as a Bill -- did and here the president just that you know so proudly accepts a million dollars dirty money from.
From Bill -- but Bristol wrote that letter -- -- bit tongue in cheek knowing that of course the president would never.
You know I apologize to the other side of the Iowa if you will because he he has a track record.
Bats and done I think -- -- -- -- that even with Bill Maher now with this.
And a bit of a nebulous apology or -- I want to see how -- call.
Now it only -- The freedom -- either doing it he wants these basically say yeah what attack anybody who we can all use this horrible horrible language.
I don't care about Bill -- I'm not gonna boycott HBO.
But it's the left that wants to silence talk radio.
And it's the left that he has selective moral outrage your daughter actually refer to -- she said.
But the president seems only willing to defend certain women that he's willing to take a moral stand when you know you liberal supporters to stand behind you.
Wonder if -- donated a million dollars to a super pac.
If -- have a pass to say to anyone wants.
We'll and they that goes back to the point I was gonna make about Bill -- squad Friday a cease fire call eight Eaton Bristol understands too that -- repentance I hypocrite is -- -- hypocrisy when that repentance is just done for.
An allowance -- continued allowance to do with Dave.
Done in the past and they and they want to meet impediment free ticket to keep on writing and -- and it's it's ridiculous I know I'm too.
What we have seen from the top former president on down because the point that Bristol was trying to making calling out the president and the and the hypocrisy there on the left is.
Our -- president -- -- children and adults with special needs this he.
-- referred mocking Leon -- late night talk show about you know and acting goofy like.
Those in the Special Olympics you know what there was kind of a hurtful thing to.
For the hearts of our country and I don't the president ever apologized for that.
He's got very I'm selective ways of showing compassion and and failing America's pain.
Bristol I think there's just kind of pointing out some of that and I didn't.
Very effective the way she did it we -- roll but I think the best line in your daughter's open letter to the president when he said that of mark talked about the president's daughters.
The way that they talked about her -- you and your family that he would return is dirty money in the Secret Service would probably have to restrain him.
I think that was dead on accurate yeah governor I that's that I -- -- I appreciate -- was one of the things I admire the most about you is you've taken all these hits.
And -- -- -- -- of what you believe in and you you don't retreat so thanks for being with us.
-- -- one other thing though when it comes to our president and what he focuses on and who we apologizes to when he who he wants to provide say benefits to you have to ask yourself if he weren't -- position -- Other families -- -- Raising a child with special needs if you -- a position of may -- having served in the united states military or had a spouse or.
A loved -- a child who would serve in the military would he be cutting their benefits and and the troop numbers in the equipment that they need.
All those things that many of us an everyday average American Michael -- -- we've lived through and deal with because of that.
President's policies you wonder if -- -- in our shoes.
Would he make the same decisions and see the same things that he's saying today.
-- governor has always I think that you answered your own question thank you being with us and we appreciate it.
And coming up liberal.
