Sarah Palin's America

You can always tell when someone is losing. They begin to sound like it. Actually, I anticipated this long before the general election. Then again, the McCain/Palin ticket waited until they were 8-10 points down in the polls to start playing the race-patriot bait card (and the consequence of this can be seen in the hate rallies that McCain-Palin campaign appearances have become in the last few weeks).

If one believed Governor Palin, assuming anyone can take seriously a person who thinks the head of Vladimir Putin has designs on Alaska, a corporatist Democrat is unelectable because he met some ex-60s radical four times over the course of the last two decades. For this, he is guilty of 'palling' around with terrorists. Not only that, places like Alaska and North Carolina represent the "pro-America" parts of the US, as opposed to, say, that bastion of anti-Americanism, Massachusetts, where I suppose sodo-satanists have taken over (this is not just rhetoric when you consider one of the Governor's preachers is a self-professed witch hunter).

The irony in Palin's speeches is that she is married to a member of the Alaskan Independence Party (and is a reputed ex-member and supporter herself). This is the same "pro-American" political party that supports the separation of the state of Alaska from the United States of America (which most of us "real" Americans would consider treason). Its members are also known supporters of that other great bastion of American patriotism, the League of the South (and Alaska is one of the few states north of the Mason-Dixon line that has a chapter in the LoTS). This is the same League of the South who thinks the Confederacy was right, the Civil War had nothing to do with slavery (indeed, according to these angry white folk Abraham Lincoln was comparable to Adolph Hitler), that blacks enjoyed living under slavery, and that the South should rise again and separate from the US.

Here is the side of Sarah and Todd Palin you will not see at one of her campaign speeches.

Real pro-American group there.

Let us compare the score card of Sarah and Todd Palin's political association with a group that supports secession, a cause that killed over a half million people in the 1860s, and a party whose founder expressly states that he has "no use for America," to someone who bombed a few empty buildings under the delusion that it would make the US government less authoritarian and imperialistic (which it obviously did not). Why is it that no one in the mainstream media is calling Palin and McCain out for this hypocrisy?

And speaking of patriotism and love of the US that McCain's supporters are showing at his rallies, here is another example of what this campaign is descending to.


SoCal GOP Group Depicts Obama In Racist Caricature

RIVERSIDE (AP) ― A San Bernardino County Republican group has distributed a newsletter picturing Barack Obama on a phony $10 bill adorned with a watermelon, ribs and a bucket of fried chicken.

The illustration was denounced by various GOP officials after it appeared in the October newsletter of the Chaffey Community Republican Women, Federated, the Riverside Press-Enterprise reported Thursday.

Diane Fedele, president of the group, said the move had no racist intent.

"I never connected," she told the newspaper. "It was just food to me. It didn't mean anything else."

The Obama campaign declined to comment, saying it does not address such attacks.

The newsletter was sent to about 200 club members and associates last week by mail and e-mail.

Fedele said she had received the illustration in e-mails and decided to reprint it to poke fun at a previous remark by Obama that he doesn't look like other presidents.

"It was strictly an attempt to point out the outrageousness of his statement. I really don't want to go into it any further," Fedele told the newspaper. "I absolutely apologize to anyone who was offended. That clearly wasn't my attempt."

Fedele said she also planned to send an apology letter to her members and apologize at the club's meeting next week.

Sheila Raines of San Bernardino, a black member of the club, complained about the image to Fedele.

"This is what keeps African-Americans from joining the Republican Party," she said. "I'm really hurt. I cried for 45 minutes."

California Republican Party press secretary Hector Barajas denounced the newsletter.

"This material I've seen inspires nothing but divisiveness and hostility and has absolutely no place in this election, or any public discourse," he said Thursday in a written statement.

The club is a volunteer group that is not directly responsible to the state party, he said.

"They're an entity unto themselves," he said.

The image was also condemned by Assemblyman Bill Emmerson, R-Redlands, and state Sen. Bob Dutton, R-Rancho Cucamonga.

Emmerson said he was offended and sickened by the newsletter.

"Bias and racial comments and even suggestions are frankly what weakens us as a people. I think we as Americans need to rise above that," Dutton said.

Here is another McCain supporter at a rally in Johnstown, PA. I am sure this is all a coincidence and he had no clue that there were any racial overtones to what he was doing.

Sarah Palin's America.

Isn't it ironic, that nobody in the liberal media or far left blogosphere such as this fascist-leaning blog will touch Sarah Palin's ties to the Libertarian Party with a ten-foot pole? She's got ties to the Libertarian Party of Alaska that are much more recent and stronger, than any relationship she may have had with the AIP.

But you see, the Libertarian Party is America's Third Largest Political Party. There are over 500 Libertarians serving in elected office, like Mayors, County Supervisors and City Councilman all across the US. They are a fully respected party, with lots of appeal.

To mention Palin's ties to the LP would be counterproductive for the Leftist-Fascist Palin haters. It would increase her appeal and popularity. So, they completely ignore the story.

Here's the crunch, that nobody wants to talk about:


So, you see, tie Sarah Palin to the AIP, and your just boosting up her libertarian appeal. Thanks for the support.

Well, E, I'm sure you'll be there cashing in your Obama bucks, extolling the virtues of freedom, to be rich, racist, and white (ironic to see an "anti-fascist" tax dodger whose party is supposed to support choice on issues like abortion becoming such a fanatic for a candidate who thinks impregnated rape victims should be compelled to give birth to the products of such assaults [but then I guess your love for avoiding April 15 takes precedence, even over this country, whose hatred of you'll rediscover on the evening of Nov. 4th, along with your leftover '90s militia buddies hiding from the UN helicopters in their cabins out in Montana]). Enjoy the downfall that is coming in the next few weeks. Thanks to the demographic change, as well as that wonderful thing called the vote, you will become a permanent ideological minority within your own gated community. I would mourn your false idol of the market's loss, but your fate is of little consequence to me compared to the real workers in my family who've lost their jobs to the sponsors of the political prostitutes of the upper 1% income tax bracket that you pimp yourself for.
