Sarah Palin has posted a deranged manifesto that blames Obama for the flood of unaccompanied minors that are coming over the US border from Central America, called on the president to be impeached, threatened to leave the Republican Party, and demanded that the minors be flown to Mexico by the US government.
Palin wrote on her Facebook page:
These thousands of hungry, innocent children rushing in through Mexico are just the tip of the Sedona Red Rocks (granted, some of these illegals are 18-year-old men whom you wouldn’t want to mess with, but, still, according to Obamacare we now dub young adults “children” until they’re 26, so…). Expect to see hundreds of thousands of another country’s children walk right through our welcoming open border, counting on America’s families to render all aid. We owe it to ourselves to be prepared – so, work even harder, working class, while our President uses his trustworthy discernment to redistribute your paycheck, because it IS for the children, after all. And it takes a village, don’t you know?
We cannot ignore this, and to do so proves you are heartlessly oblivious to the plight of those who, though not willing and able to follow rules or our laws, are expecting a free pass and handout anyway. As a Christian I find it unforgivable to ignore this issue of overrunning border security into these conditions in southern states, and this one issue is just about driving me to renounce my Republican ties because, see, even leaders on the RIGHT side of the aisle haven’t exerted all Constitutional power to stop the madness. A few have tried, but until they’re sent reinforcements, then atrocities like the child abuse and exploitation you’re now getting wind of will only get worse.
So, how much more will you take, Congress and We the People? I sense not enough guts in D.C. to file impeachment charges against Team Obama for their countless documented illegalities, so the way to stop this is at the ballot box. To fundamentally restore America to her destined exceptionalism you must get involved and then get to that box. Use YOUR phone and pen to support conservative candidates who will fight for what is right: Constitutionally protected freedom, respected military, free markets to create jobs, and secured borders to protect jobs! We need your help to do this; it takes more than a village to fortify the homeland. ANYONE associated with support for Obama’s deceptive ploys that would stoop to using and abusing innocent children must be voted out of office. ANYONE who has shined the boot that Obama’s put on the neck of our economy and security must be held accountable by those with the legal power to do so – Congress. And then We the People hold Congress accountable.
P.S. I see that HHS is offering a $350 million grant to provide “family planning services” to the children here illegally. The primary expenditure we need to supply in this humanitarian crisis is jet fuel to fly these children back home to their parents.
The problem with flying these unaccompanied minors to Mexico is that the children aren’t Mexican. The children are arriving from Central America, where according to The Washington Post, Gang violence in El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala is putting children at risk and causing them to flee.
Palin also doesn’t understand that if the kids were Mexican, the US already has an agreement with the Mexican government that allows for unaccompanied children to be quickly sent back home. It is unclear why Palin is claiming that Obama is importing Mexican children in order to exploit them as a distraction from his other scandals. It is equally as difficult to understand why Palin thinks that Obama has committed an impeachable offense, and why exactly she would be leaving the Republican Party. Is she leaving because Obama won’t fly kids from Honduras back to Mexico, or is she leaving because Republicans won’t impeach the president?
As her sanity becomes a fuzzy speck in the rear-view mirror of time, it is frightening that this woman was nominated by a major political party to be vice president. If Sarah Palin leaves the Republican Party, her first stop should be the nearest mental health clinic.
