Sarah Palin and the Republican Lie of “sacrifice”

Since she makes so much political hay over having sacrificed “her own” son to the Military Establishment, maybe she should have a short tutorial on the word Sacrifice.
First, stolen goods, stolen money and humans aren’t viewed as Clean for the Temple. Just like Caiphas couldn’t spend the thirty shekels, because it was the price of blood. Sarah Palin could not in any way OWN her son. He’s another separate human being. Not a possession.
He might consider himself a sacrifice (he’d be wrong) but it would be HIS blood offering, not hers.
Also he doesn’t seem to be dying for the atonement of anybody’s sin, if he DOES get his fascist face blown through the back of his skull it’ll be because he’s in a foreign country enslaving the people, taking their land and oil in the name of the corporations for whom Momma Grizzly does her whorin’. and one of them would get in a good shot while defending his country against Young Sgt Palin.
Not anything similar to a sacrifice.

A sacrifice is to make one Holy. Not to make one a simple grubby little cowardly murderer.

But it goes right along with the Capitalist Theme, that the Captains of Industry should be allowed the full fruits of something other people built or did.
Mrs Palin and the rest of them can say that they “sacrificed” their own kids to the Killing Machine, but they, like the Captains of Industry, who never put their own hand to the plough, never take up the sword to commit their own murders, and take whatever gain or sick emotional credit for the actions of others.
They are a disgusting and slimy lot.

No wonder the local business and civic and social “leaders” look up to them, especially those who pretend to be ministers of God.

Her “sacrifice” of her son, or more truthfully the people murdered by her son, mirrors all their vainglorious actions.
