Sarah Palin Freaks After Obama Uses Her Racism to Attack the GOP

Sarah Palin had a Facebook meltdown last night because President Obama dared to use her own words in context in a campaign ad. Naturally, in writing her defense, she doubled down on the things said in the ad while claiming they were taken out of context.

The President’s ads are writing themselves this election season because as we all know, the truth is stranger than fiction for the modern day Republican Party. All the Obama team has to do is roll the tape of any number of Republicans speaking and boom! Lights out for all but the most racist and uninformed.

Here’s an Obama ad featuring Palin on Fox News’ Hannity essentially saying Barack Obama will bring back racial discrimination against white people:

Obama ad transcript via TPM:

Barack Obama I think has never been seen in the conventional, traditional way of we who would describe a man of valor. … And his profession as a community organizer — what went into his thinking was this philosophy of radicalism … he is bringing us back, Sean, to days that — you can hearken back to days before the Civil War … 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?

Sarah Palin did say these things, in fact, we wrote about it here in Sarah Palin Unveils 2012 Strategy: Insane Racism Redux. Palin did accuse the President of trying to take America back to pre “Civil War” times. President Obama can hardly help it if Palin is ignorant.

But Sarah Palin is steaming mad that Obama is using her words to hang the Republican Party. And where can a coward like Palin go when she’s angry but to her Facebook bunker? She’s too frightened to go on any mainstream media outlets, especially with Game Change on fire this week. So Palin takes to Facebook and doubles down on the exact same rhetoric she claims was taken out of context.

Here is what she wrote in part on her Facebook Page:

Exhibit A in these diversionary tactics is an absurd new attack ad President Obama has released taking my comments out of context….

This latest ad is quite odd, but also quite telling. It shows that our President sure seems fearful of discussing the economy, energy prices, and all the other problems people need addressed. And intended or not, now that his ad opens up the discussion of Barack Obama’s radical past associations and the radical philosophy that shaped his ideas about his promised “fundamental transformation” of our country, I welcome the media to join ordinary Americans in finally vetting Barack Obama. The media failed to do so in 2008 to the detriment of us all. Maybe this time around they can do their job.

They might start by noting the President’s heavily edited attack ad.”

Here is her original interview:

Transcript (edited from original courtesy of Crooks and Liars):

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… 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.

What we have here, America, is a failure to communicate. The implication in “heavily edited” and “taken out of context” is that the person said something before or after the quote that changes the entire meaning of the sound bite. That is not what happened to Sarah Palin. These are her words, and the entire interview does nothing to change what she meant.

This is the opposite of what Breitbart did to Shirley Sherrod, who was telling a story about a lesson she learned and how she had been wrong, and Breitbart left that part out of the quote. That was an example of willfully misleading people about the speaker’s intentions and meaning. This is not. In fact, in her own rebuttal, Palin doubles down on her accusations that the President is a radical who wants to fundamentally transform America. Are we supposed to forget her infamous cry, “This is a man who does not see America as you and I see it… This is a man who pals around with terrorists.”

It is not Barack Obama who was not vetted, as Game Change so scathingly reveals. It was Sarah Palin who was not vetted. It was Sarah Palin who did not know what the Fed was. It was Sarah Palin who could not handle an interview with McCain friendly Katie Couric. It was Sarah Palin who was associated with a radical, dangerous secessionist party. Yes, America, Sarah Palin has a projection problem and she desperately wants us all to focus on Barack Obama’s “radical past” and gas prices right now, as does the entire Republican Party.

Gas prices and invented narratives based on “otherism” of Barack Obama are all the Right has, and Sarah Palin probably really believes that the President has full control over gas prices. This is the woman who didn’t know the difference between North and South Korea and thought that one of our “border allies” was Iraq. Heck, Palin is allegedly an energy expert, but she believes that we can bring down oil prices by drilling here. That’s just sad.

But what’s worse is that the Republican base and many Americans are buying this load of baloney. They need only look to the amount of drilling we’ve done here under Obama versus the amount of drilling done in Germany and the price of gas in both countries to see that oil prices are set on the global market.

But they don’t want to talk about reality, because reality is an ugly mess for the Republican Party. Instead, they want to gin up fear about Obama taking us back to pre-Civil War era, because we all know that all African Americans preferred that time to the heady days of today where everyone is “equal”. Everyone, that is, except for a half black man who is President of this country; he, of course, is subjected to endless racism and fear tactics based on the color of his skin and his “Muslim religion.” As if it matters what religion he is, but for the record, since it’s clear the Republicans in Mississippi and Alabama need some help with this: BARACK OBAMA IS A CHRISTIAN. Now, please do the country a favor and hush up about his religion. Go read up on how gas prices are set.

Sarah Palin is freaking out because she doesn’t like her words being used as she said them. She claims they were edited out of context and to some degree she is correct. The Obama campaign did her a favor and left out some of the more inflammatory rhetoric from that very interview. Gosh, for that matter, they could have used her Blood Libel video; the one where she blamed the “depraved liberals” for the atmosphere of hate and denied any responsibility for putting cross hairs on Gabby Gifford’s district and then whined about how she was being treated on the very day of the memorial for the victims of the Arizona massacre.

I told you Sarah Palin would be useful one day. She encapsulates in one person everything that should frighten the average American about the modern day Republican Party. She lacks the courage to stand behind her own words and the fortitude to face her mistakes. She lacks character and judgment. She lies easily. She feels persecuted and wallows in victimhood when she should be acting like a leader.

The truth is that many Americans are tired of Sarah Palin style rhetoric from the GOP. They’re fed up with the division and hatred. The Obama campaign knows it and they’re going to use it. The Obamas have been putting up with obscene threats and hatred directed at them daily since 2008, courtesy of Sarah Palin and the Right. I’m sure if they had their druthers, none of this would have happened and they wouldn’t have to roll this ugly footage in order to explain the origin of the fear-mongering. Whose fault is it that Sarah Palin said these things that made it so easy for the Obama campaign to capture the Republican Party in one short ad?

That’s right. It’s Sarah Palin’s fault. Cue the whining and the link to that esteemed bastion of trustworthy video editing, Breitbart.com. Don’t let the narrative escape you; this is about turning this election into the only two issues that the Republicans think they can win on: racism and gas prices. Oh, and for Sarah, it’s all about Sarah. Nothing new there.

  1. “Why are we allowing our country to move backwards?”

    No shit, Sarah…like the days before civil rights, women’s rights, contraception…when women were kept barefoot & pregnant, there was raging paranoia about Communists, and those pesky minorities knew their place…

    Oh, that’s not what you meant, huh?

  2. This woman is dumber than a box of rocks. And to think she could have been VP. She is a vile, vicious, self-centered, bitch of the highest degree. What do you expect from her. She’s outlived her 15 minutes of fame and needs to be forgottten. Please do us all a favor and leave her out of the news. She is useless.

  3. This is Sarah “Blood Libel” Palin—-in all her “unleashed” and “unshackled” glory, freed from the restraints of handlers.

    Kind of makes you appreciate (and feel sympathy for) Schmidt’s and Wallace’s task in trying to bring this ignorant bag of bile up to the standards of a national political campaign.

  4. “…the modern day Republican Party. She lacks the courage to stand behind her own words and the fortitude to face her mistakes. She lacks character and judgment. She lies easily. She feels persecuted and wallows in victimhood when she should be acting like a leader.”

    Yes, this perfectly sums up Sarah Palin AND the Republican Party today.

  5. this is absolutely, epically hilarious. This is solid proof that Sarah Palin doesn’t know what she says from one day to the next and hates being slam down like a bowl of milk for a cat. I take that back, this is insanely funny.

    I don’t think you can take her words out of context, they are very clear in their meaning. She has been caught trying to take America backwards and has to blame the president for it.

    Facebook rage, tuna can dance in the refrigerator, long fast food binges interspersed with diet pills. Sarah’s brain is a wiggly Squiggly thing that glows purple in the dark. Putin uses it to set his clock.

  6. Let’s just explain the Palin Baby Hoax to the general public. It’s symbolic of everything that’s wrong with her as a leader: deceptive, bankrupt “family values,” unintelligent, manipulative, and downright crooked.

    Palin faked her pregnancy with her disabled son. Palin was not pregnant as stated. Although she wore various fake bellies during the time preceding the April 19 “birth,” a Mar 14 photo shows a completely flat profile, a Mar 26 photo shows an oddly padded semi-flat profile, an Apr 13 photo shows a HUGE fake belly, with the “birth” allegedly on Apr 19.

    There is a bewildering amount of data on this in the blogs, but stay focussed on one thing: can a woman go from flat profile to 6-pound baby in 5 weeks? If not, then she perp’ed the biggest political hoax in memory. And certain people enabled it. And the media did not report it.

    Let’s just look at the whole story, not a few word-salad quotes. Just google it and you will see.

  7. Before seeing game change, we knew this chick was as smart as a rock…after seeing game change…the rock is smarter than she is.

  8. Well now, isn’t that a fine kettle of fish; Ms. Palin, makin’ ads for President Obama.

    Keep showing the world who you are, Republicans.

    November 6, 2012 – Let’s make it an Obama landslide.

  9. The last time I checked, Sarah Palin wasn’t running for President. So, why is Obama wasting his time attacker HER?

  10. Sara didn’t write the Facebook denouncment; someone else did. Why, because of all the “weasel words” that are used,placed cautiously so as not to present her statements as “real” and damning as they are…and I parse….

    “This latest ad is “quite” odd…”quite” telling.

    It “shows”…the President “seems”…”intended” “or not”…his ad “opens up” the discussion…

    I “welcome” the media to “join in” vetting Barack Obama.

    The media failed…”Maybe” …they can do their job.

    “They might”…start by “noting” the President’s heavily edited attack ad.”

    Not true, Missy! Very farcical, Sara Her response is heavily editing in her “weasel-worded”*, and, trust me, she didn’t write it…someone who is trying to get her out of trouble wrote this; she doesn’t know how to craft such political savvy on anyone’s behalf!

    *weasel-words were first called out as a tactic by Teddy Roosevelt on those trying to usurp his power on various policies surround the ecology as I recall…

  11. It’s time to do what needs to be done.

    Conservatism is not a political philosophy. It’s a mental illness.

    When you always claim someone else is doing which is exactly what you are doing. Constantly. There has to be a brain disorder to make you see things this way.

    Let’s say a person trips you and while your on the ground they claim you just tripped them. You would think that person was insane.

    This is what the GOP constantly does. They ran up the debt and deficits. Obama did it.

    Palin argues that Obama wishes for the days of the Civil War when her entire party wishes for the day’s of the Civil war.

    Something is seriously wrong with this people.

  12. Chickenshit palin..running and ducking from her own stupid words. Who’d a guessed! HA!

    Brilliant run down, Sarah Jones..thank you.

  13. Palin has no understanding of history. He makes absolutely not sense at all. Pure gibberish is all that come out of her mouth. Maybe if someone had written on the inside of her eyelids she may have sounded less intoxicated.

  14. Sara Palin makes me want to throw up! I am sick of her and her ignorance, and I hate McCain for dredging her up to be a pest to the American people! Everytime she opens up her mouth feces comes out; she’s wild eyed like an insane person and she tells lies as if it comes natural to her. this woman has no morals, no integrity, no ethics, no intelligence and she should go back to ehr cave in Alaska and………..

  15. I think someone should build moosealini a balcony to give speeches from. That way every time she strings two sentences together she can run to the railing and shout it to the world. I’ll donate to that cause.

  16. Shiva,

    Snowbilly grifter thinks “out of context” means that someone pointed out to her that she “stuff” that makes her look like the IDIOT she actually is and then she is the “victim”.

  17. Anon,

    I have never believed that Trig was Snowbilly’s kid – not sure, but think it might be one of her kidz or perhaps Shailey Tripps.

  18. Sarah Palin is a mean-spirited idiot, and her comments don’t even make sense, but I don’t find this ad to be particularly effective on any level.

  19. Exactly “HOW” is PRESIDENT OBAMA “attacking” Badly?
    Be specific. Please.
    Baldy however attacks our POTUS Every-time she opens her feces spewing yob! She really should be arrested for treason and hate speech.
    Everyone can see except the low info voters and inbreds that she has changed the political discourse for the worse.
    Now HOW again did PRESIDENT OBAMA ATTACK BALDY?

  20. “Wow…she’s got a lot of botox in her face.”

    Is that the best a Liberal can come up with?
    No wonder our country started going down hill after Socialist Democrats took control of the House and Senate in 2007.

  21. Excellent article, of course.

    That insufferable bitch thinks she can go around disparaging our President without consequences. Of course she blames everyone but her lameass.

    The woman is a secessionist for god’s sake(white supremacy) and doesn’t appreciation our system of governing.

    McCain’s stupidass chose a secessionist. This is the second time he sold the US out.

  22. Excellent article, of course.

    McCain’s stupidass chose a secessionist. This is the second time he sold the US out.

  23. The best part of her victimhood is she claims to be just a regular citizen, but her Facebook account says otherwise – it shows her “job” as a politician. BTW – Game Change posted the highest ratings for an HBO original movie in 6 years. $he should just pick up her toys and go home.

    Yep, the GOP is writing the fundraising letters for the Democrats, and to make matters worse, the Democrats are actually raising more money.

  24. This woman has been complaining that people have been using her own words against her since she landed on the national stage. Maybe it’s time she acknowledged the words coming out of her mouth, rather than blaming people for repeating them, as the cause of her problems.

  25. While I have never liked Sarah Palin, and it seems thus far that none of us replying here do either, I would think that if she just went home and raised worms for fishing she’d be a whole lot better off than she is by opening her mouth and allowing idiotic lies to come out.

    Silence is golden, Sarah, dear, and your silence would be greatly appreciated by many, myself included.

    Does the GOP today really and truly lack any articulate female candidates who can make some sort of sense? There was a time. Then, the floor dropped out and this ragged phoenix arose from the ashes. (Along with a few others who are seemingly just wise enough now to lay low).

    Cheers!

  26. Funny how there are so many posts questioning her intelligence, her family values, her integrity etc and you choose to reply to the comment about botox. Seriously, botox?

  27. Sarah Palin actually believes the President has control over gas prices despite her alleged “energy expert” label. That label was easily debunked with her email to her staff in April 2008 when she asked them to please find out why gas prices were so high. She just didn’t understand why it cost her twice as much to fill her car as it had when she first bought it. This is from the woman who allowed John McCain to introduce her as “the nation’s leading energy expert” four months later, never trying to stop him from making a fool of himself.

    She didn’t even get involved in the talks for the pipeline because she didn’t understand it. However, that didn’t stop her from having actual energy experts from writing op-eds for her and signing her name to them, having them published in national publications. Palin is a phony and has been from day one. She’s also a compulsive liar.

    I’m just waiting for the media to take on Boys Will Be Boys, the book written by a woman who Todd Palin introduced to prostitution, using and abusing her for years while also sending friends and business associates to her and then keeping the $$ for himself. This explains how the Palin family lived so far above their means for so many years, expensive homes and multiple recreational vehicles, trucks, cars and snowmobiles. Time for the Palin family to be put out of business, for good!

  28. The only problem I find with the ad is that it keeps Sarah Palin in the news and gives the right more ammunition to attack.

  29. Someone asked why is President Obama expending so much energy on Sarah Palin since she is not running for public office. The short answer is that she says things that the Republican Party wants to say, but they can’t get away with saying. She is the agent provocateur—and is effective enough at it to keep her name and face in the mainstream media. Why is that?—That is another story.

  30. Why are Republicans still allowing this pus bag any kind of national stature? She’s got a 22% approval rating among the general public. The only ones who like her are FOX audiences of whom the majority are over 65 and pre-Civil Rights, pre-segregationist Southerners, who if Obama did turn back the clock to pre-Civil War times, they’d be hailing him as the Messiah. Women, minorities and Jews especially hate her and if she wasn’t a FOX SPEWS contributor, she’d have lumbered off into the sunset, justifiably forgotten.

  31. Most intelligent Republican women left the GOP years ago either because they thought their way out or they were driven out by the likes of Sarah Palin.

  32. Sarah Palin’s breath smells like a combintion of feces and feet due to her constantly spewing verbal fertilizer and putting her foot in her mouth every chance she gets!

  33. Palin fascinates me. When McCain first introduced her, I thought she came off pretty well. But upon further reflection I realized that she actually said about twenty minutes of nothing. Ah Johnny McCain, what hath thou wrought?

    Anyhow, the shine has long gone off her dime and if it were anyone else, she would have faded back into anonymity the day the last vote was counted;yet she survives, a sodden teabag in an empty cup. And I’m glad. She has a lot more amusement value than the rest of the Republican blunderers.

    It is to laugh, eh?
