Sarah Palin Unveils 2012 Strategy: Insane Racism Redux

Sarah Palin was on Fox News’ Hannity last night lecturing Obama on how he needs to stop trying to take this county back to pre-Civil War times when people weren’t equal to work hard. We all know slaves never worked hard, and were glad when their long fight to gain equal standing to work hard was finally won. The South was right! The Civil War was not about slavery, it was about independence!

Palin thinks that Obama is quaking in his shoes hoping no one figures out that he introduced a professor and asked people to welcome him with “open hearts and minds” because nothing says dangerous for America like an open heart and mind. She pursed her lips disapprovingly over the failure of the media to vet the President and said we all know now about his radical agenda (for jobs, the sinner!).

PALIN: Well, what we can gleam from this is an understanding of why we are all on the road that we are on and it’s based on what went into his thinking, being surrounded by radicals. He is bringing us back Sean to days that… you can harken back to days before the Civil War, when unfortunately too many Americans mistakenly believed that not all men were created equal. And it was the Civil War that began the codification of the truth here in America…

Yes, we are equal and we all have equal opportunities, not based on the color of your skin.

You have equal opportunities to work hard and to succeed and to embrace the opportunities, God given opportunities to develop resources and work extremely hard and as I say, to succeed.
Now, it has taken all these years for many Americans to understand that that gravity, that mistake, took place before the Civil War and why the Civil War had to really start changing America. What Barack Obama seems to want to do is go back to before those days when we were in different classes based on income, based on color of skin.

Why are we allowing our country to move backwards instead of moving forward with that understanding that as our charters of liberty spell out for us, we are all created equally.

Obviously, Sarah is wrong about one thing: We are not all created equally. Some of us are given charm and good looks but very little grey matter to work with and sometimes that makes us mean and spiteful, but her point is well taken. You may not be aware of this, but we are no longer in different classes based on income, oh freedom! Or skin color, oh liberty! There is no 1% stealing your opportunities for fairness and equal work (also known as “quitting”). We fixed all of that in the Civil War. Try to keep up.

It’s Obama and minorities like him who are oppressing the rest of the country by trying to take us back to pre-Civil War days when they had the privilege of fanning white women on a steamy porch in August and never had to worry about their home or family because they weren’t allowed to have them. Oh, demon!

Palin is going to ride her waning media relevance before she reveals herself to be a cheap coward again when she stands smirking at the convention, pretending she doesn’t care when this doesn’t happen (the following was written by M.K., a PoliticusUSA author, in an email to me in response to my last Palin article regarding her brokered convention threats):

I am not a bit surprised. I think the extremely delusional SP has a little film playing on a continuous loop in her mind that looks some thing like this:

The convention hall is packed, and the air is thick with frustration and anxiety as Mittens and the Pope continue to throw the same tired old “he’s a liar”, “he’s a moderate ” jabs at each other. The crowd is growing restless and dejected as the thought finally dawns that this is no way to win an election.

The rear doors swing open to reveal a glowing SP entering the arena, attired in a formfitting black pleather jacket and skirt, and sling back five inch pumps.

The crowd gasps, then jumps to their feet chanting, “Sarah! Sarah! Sarah!”

SP smiles broadly. She knows that they are beholding their savior. “Save Us, Sarah!” shouts begin to be heard. SP takes a deep breath as she walks down the long aisle, the crowd straining to touch her outstretched hands. She has arrived to claim what she has believed would be hers since 2008. She ascends the stage, glides confidently to the microphone, and shouts, “I accept your nomination!”

Ah, dreams. She coulda been a contender were it not for mean old Republican strategist Steve Schmidt and that lying Kenyan who pulled the wool over the eyes of Americans, Barack Hussein Obama. Well, this country is getting their’s now, I tell ya’!

Palin blamed Steve Schmidt for not allowing her to talk about Barack Obama in 2008. Steve tried to save Palin from her special Sarah-constructed world in 2008, when she wanted to lie to the public about her husband’s membership in the secessionist party (she wanted to call it and did call it the “Independent Party”) and again when she wanted to misrepresent her past by claiming that she and Todd didn’t have health insurance early in their marriage, when in fact they did.

But since Sarah Palin doesn’t have the guts to put herself out there after quitting on her bus tour post Paul Revere debacle, she has no one to blame for her failure to be a contender but herself. It appears that her “strategy” in 2012 is the same 2008 redux strategy the Republican Party is using, albeit slightly more nuts after being tossed about in the bitter refuge of Sarah Palin’s brain.

There’s no Steve Schmidt to save Sarah Palin from herself now. She’s gone rogue nuts.

  1. I’ve always seen Sarah Palin as the chick in a small town who gets the unsuspecting black man lynched because she claimed he looked at her, when in reality he didn’t see her at all. So once again, an egregious statement based on no facts by a Republican. How often does that happen?

  2. Curious that $arah would object to our President taking us backward, when the goal of the GOP is to take us backward to the Middle Ages. Serfdom, no education for any but the privileged nobles and the clergy, rampant plagues to curb population growth and endless wars over dogma.

    Doesn’t she claim to hate Progressives and progress?

  3. I think they use Chatty Cathy, there, to say the mean, nuts things they need to appeal to their mean nuts people, and then they unplug her and roll her back in the closet.

  4. I knew she wasn’t that bright… but this is too far.

    Slaves not work that hard? SAY WHAT? Science proves her absolutely wrong… we can tell from the bones that the slaves were almost worked to death! For instance, when they found the slave graveyard in New York, all of the men and women had injuries to their bones where the ligaments had torn free… indicating that they’d been doing things that were far more strenuous than their bodies could handle (and they weren’t striplings either). There was ample other evidence that the slaves were forced to work far beyond what humans could and should endure. They were nothing but machines as far as the owners were concerned (where have we heard that before – couldn’t be from the corporations! Nah, they really care about people. /snark).

    We also have records of the beatings and other forms of “discipline” that the slaves endured.

    Sarah Palin, you need to get an education… in reality. Your church isn’t the place to get that. Only a secular university is likely to speak the truth – your church is too addicted to lies and deceit to be of any value in the quest for knowledge.

  5. if it’s on the Sean Hannity show, it’s probably going to be a lie.

    Not only is Sarah Palin going to play race, but she just told the world that there is no income disparity despite the fact that the United States is behind some Third World countries in that subject. It would be interesting to see Sarah Palin get up on stage and tell people that the income disparity is in their minds.basically what Sarah is telling us you are created equal if you didn’t work hard enough to get rich that’s too bad. That dog doesn’t hunt with me

  6. I wonder? Is she really from this planet and part of the human race??? I think she comes from the Planet “Ucken Fidiot”, located in the Rectum Galaxy, in the Anus Solar System. Maybe that’s why she is so full of…well, you get it!!!

  7. I wonder if the GOP establishment is a bit afraid of Sarah Palin showing up at their convention. The way she said that she would DEFINITELY be there means she wants to stir up the crowd and make trouble.

  8. Probably she and her masters (the church leadership) see that Romney is doing OK, and their dislike for Mormons is so strong that they can’t stand it.

    They’d hope to stir up the crowd and inflame their bigoted tendencies, giving her an opportunity to get her name back in the hat (and bring defeat to the hated Other). That, or she might have the same fantasy as before – run for VP, and then the president suddenly dies. By raising such a stink, maybe they think they can coerce whoever wins the nomination will be forced to take her as a VP candidate.

  9. Wait a minute. Is Obama a Muslim or a brainwashed follower of a radical Christian reverend?

    I forgot which is the lie of the week. Alluding to both lies in the same interview is confusing. Sarah needs to learn to stay on message. Probably why she skipped actually campaigning for the nomination with all that elitist “talkin and debatin”.

  10. her handlers told her to spew more absurd nonsense than usual in an effort to distract folks from watching game change where she is portrayed as the babbling psychopath she is. She’ll have to tell stories about going on 8 hour flights with amniotic fluids running down her leg or her husband furnishing prostitutes to oil company execs to distract us from watching Game Change.

  11. Y’know, in my youth, I would have rogered her soundly, and then gone about my business, because crazies don’t make for good gf’s. Now, I wouldn’t be caught in the same building with her if I could help it- dead or alive. Wack-a-doo City is where she is from. I can’t decide whether I pity her husband or just loathe his poor taste in women- all booty & no brains.

  12. The more I hear sarah palin babble…

    The more I’m starting to 2nd guess this whole 1st amendment thing…

    I mean, is free speech really worth it.

  13. On re-reading her comments here, and from other commenters on other blogs, I think she meant “civil rights”, not civil war. But words just kind of rattle around in that empty round space that passes for her head. Every now and then two words might smack together and the sound causes her mouth to speak.

    Or, more realistically, she doesn’t really understand the time span between the two events and doesn’t know that they are not the same thing.

  14. Brit? I’ve never heard an American use that verb unless they were heavily exposed to Britiform dialects.

  15. I did have a notorious Rhode Island Red rooster named Roger, though, and that was one of the things he did best. The other was beat up foxes, dogs, mail carriers, joggers, and cyclists.

  16. I don’t know much about your politics but i know a fool when i hear one speak.Was this woman a governor for real!? Alaska must really be in need of intellectuals if she can be their governor!
