“I respect these men on their policies. But, I don’t respect them as they sit on their hands watching this woman being attacked mercilessly, time and again, on illegitimate grounds.
“Men no longer have a sense of chivalry. They watch Sarah Palin get attacked, and they just kind of whimper. They don’t say anything about it, and I found that incredibly offensive.
“I’ve noticed that the Republican establishment, the men that run the operation, have noticed since day one that Sarah Palin is under attack. They understand that she’s an existential threat to the left. But, she’s also an existential threat to these eunuchs who have run as men but aren’t men. And they look at Sarah Palin, and say, ‘You know what? We’re going to destroy her.’”
I mention this to discuss the stunning silence in which Brietbart’s minions and others have engaged in regard to this.
It warrants mention that many have spoken up, including:

Now, who’s not on this list?
For starters, Breitbart.com. Search their site. Although they have run stories about the individual in question, no mention has been made of the present situation except for this very odd non-entry (check out the URL). Where are you Dana Loesch (who, to her credit, has at least made some mention, albeit once and in passing, on Twitter about what’s going on), John Nolte and Kurt Schlichter? Dan Riehl has made some mention of the matter on his personal blog, but that’s been it. [NOTE: This has changed subsequent to the original post. See below.]
HotAir? Nothing. [NOTE: This has changed subsequent to the original post. See below.]
Right Wing News? Not that I can find. [NOTE: This has changed subsequent to the original post. See below.]
The Daily Caller? Nothing.
RedState? Nothing except a link to Michelle Malkin’s post. [NOTE: This has changed subsequent to the original post. See below.]
I don’t get it.
Multiple leading conservative voices are attacked, one to the point where he and his family have been forced to go into hiding…
… and yet so many on the right have been totally silent.
I. Don’t. Get. It.
ADDENDUM: Thanks to Paul Lemmen, The Lonely Conservative, Dan Collins, Nice Deb, Datechguy’s Blog, Michelle Malkin, Lady Liberty 1885, Donald Douglas of American Power, Patrick of Thoughts and Rantings, Memeorandum, Bob Belvedere at The Camp of The Saints, Terresa Monroe-Hamilton at Gulag Bound, Film Ladd, Bookworm Room, Lisa Graas, The Daley Gator, askmarion, mesablue of Absolute Moral Authority, Zilla of the Resistance (please hit her tip jar), Sard at The Right Planet and Trevor Loudon of New Zeal Blog for the links.

UPDATE: Since the original post at 8:12 PM PDT on May 22nd, some of those who were previously silent have spoken up in support of the oppressed. Major kudos to Michelle Malkin, Ed Morrissey at HotAir, Erick Erickson at RedState, John Hawkins at Right Wing News, and Dana Loesch at Breitbart for entering the fray.
