Palin’s Book: Malevolent Race-Baiting, Mean-Girl Spite
November 20, 2010
(ChattahBox Political News)—Sarah Barracuda, the once and future mean girl from Wasilla is out with a new book, “America by Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith, and Flag.” What a strangely Orwellian title for a ghost-written tome filled with spiteful hate, vindictiveness and even race-baiting. Sarah Palin’s “reflections” also exhibits a complete lack of self awareness, as she rails against participants on Fox’s “American Idol,” as victims of President Obama’s “cult of self-esteem,” while her daughter Bristol, an unwed mom, appears on “Dancing With the Stars” as a celebrity “teen activist.” Irony is lost on Sarah, the former half-term governor of Alaska and current reality TV star. Palin invokes race, as she takes swipes at President Obama, our first black president. She even takes a classless cheap shot at the First Lady. And she can’t resist spewing out more bile towards her grandson’s father Levi Johnston, whose behavior she calls “disgusting.”
If the conspicuously unintelligent Sarah Palin does decide to run for president, the broadsides against Obama in her new book provides us with a glimpse into her future campaign attacks. She portrays Obama as a racist against white people, who is also a socialist wealth-distributor, narcissistic and arrogant. And she makes use of manufactured Fox News’ scandals, such as the NASA reaching out to Muslims non-scandal.
“There is a narcissism in our leaders in Washington today,” Palin writes. “There’s a quasi-religious feeling to the message coming from them. They are trying to convince us that not only are they our saviors, but that we are our saviors… as candidate Obama proclaimed on Super Tuesday 2008, ‘We are the ones we’ve been waiting for, we are the change that we seek.’”…
“They seemed to think we could be bribed by pie-in-the-sky promises; that we were gullible enough to believe that government could manufacture a new ‘right’ to health care and we wouldn’t pay the price with our freedom,” writes Palin.
And she ironically disparages reality TV show contestants, as following in the footsteps of President Obama, by exhibiting a false sense of self-esteem, or something.
“Chalk some of them up as victims of the cult of self-esteem. No one they have encountered in their lives – from their parents to their teachers to their president – wanted them to feel bad by hearing the truth” writes Palin, adding young people and American Idol performers believe “someone else will provide for them.”
Meanwhile, “teen activist” Bristol Palin appears on Dancing With the Stars, while receiving consistently low scores for some very bad dancing. And Palin and her entire family are showcased in a weekly reality TV show on TLC.
When Palin writes about race, she rejects the reality of racial discrimination and racial inequality in America. She takes aim at those leveling charges of racism at tea party members, she calls “patriotic Americans.”
“The second reason the charge of racism is leveled at patriotic Americans so often is that the people making the charge actually believe it. They think America, at least America as it currently exists is a fundamentally unequal and unjust country. Barack Obama seems to believe this too.”
“Certainly his wife expressed this view when she said during the 2008 campaign that she had never felt proud of her country until her husband started winning elections. In retrospect, I guess this shouldn’t surprise us, since both of them spent almost two decades in the pews of the Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s church listening to his rants against America and white people.”
President Obama repudiated Rev. Wright and left his church.
Michelle Obama made a remark during the 2008 presidential campaign that Palin and others immediately jumped on, to portray her as un-American. Michelle Obama clarified her remarks. She said she meant she was proud of the “record number” of young people becoming engaged and unified in the political process, not that her husband was winning elections.
“For the first time in my lifetime, I am seeing people rolling up their sleeves in way that I haven’t seen and really trying to figure this out, and that’s the source of pride I was talking about,” Michelle Obama later said.
But no matter, Palin took Michelle Obama’s 2008 campaign remarks to twist them around to attack our First Lady as un-patriotic. And Palin even managed to add a racial component to her attack.
Classless and vile.
