Sarah Palin’s race-based Michelle Obama slam

If you had any doubts that a Sarah Palin presidential run would be a full-on, racially charged assault on the first family, dripping with references to Jeremiah Wright and accusations that the Obamas don’t really love America, this should remove that doubt for good.

From the HuffPo:

In passages leaked from her forthcoming book America by Heart, Sarah Palin — the erstwhile quitter governor of Alaska, who now, by all indications, fancies herself as President of the United States — has taken another cheap shot at First Lady Michelle Obama.

In a passage on perceptions of racial inequality in the United States, Palin slams President Barack Obama, who, she asserts, “seems to believe” that “America — at least America as it currently exists — is a fundamentally unjust and unequal country.”

And then she goes after Michelle Obama:

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.

Palin also goes after the country’s African-American attorney general, Eric Holder, in her book, also on racial terms:

It also makes sense, then, that the man President Obama made his attorney general, Eric Holder, would call us a “nation of cowards” for failing to come to grips with what he described as the persistence of racism.

The book passages were first leaked on Palingates, which also found the would be White Queen dragging 12-year-old Malia Obama into her arguments (or her ghost-writer’s) and referring to young Americans as a bunch of spoiled little whiners who feel entitled to jobs and salaries they haven’t earned (now who does that sound like …) and the president as the product of a “self esteem culture” that confers status without accomplishment. Again, self-reflect much, Ms. Palin?

Read more about the book on Palingates. And ask yourself this question: what do Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Erick Erickson and Andrew Breitbart and his clan have in common? What theme do you see constantly recurring in their attacks on the president? If you said constant, droning, insistent racial provocation, edging right up to, but carefully excluding the n-word, but always pricking at that divide between black and white, needling it and harping on it so that the listener gets it, even if the word isn’t said? You get a gold star.

    And the lamestream media will play right into her hands–while she insults them–and give her all the attention she desires. Can real Americans see through this stuff?? Hopefully most are as tired of it as I am.

    Sarah Palin is just a bad person all around. She hasn’t said a word about her awful daughters using homophobic slurs on Facebook, either. All this woman knows how to do is hate, restrict rights from people who deserve them, and get her ratty face in front of a camera and it’s absolutely SHAMEFUL that some Americans consider those Presidential qualities. What has happened to our great country?

  3. Rupert says:

    To borrow a term from Willow and Bristol, Sarah should STFU.

    Just gimme fives minutes with her…

    Take an hour, MELMO.

    Yes,yes & yes, all comments I wholeheartedly agree with. The MSM will give her all the attention she needs. They will lift her to high heaven, listen to her silly ranting. I hope no one buys that stupid book but that is to much to hope for. How can anyone take her seriously but they do.

    While you are busy looking at what she has in her book… have you looked in the exhaustive research behind what Palingates uncovered with her SarahPAC disclosure? Phony LLC’s or shelf corporation that are getting money from SarahPAC and for what Service? Someone is cashing those checks. Payoffs, laundering… What? ( Follow the Money )

    At her root and core, sarah palin is mentally unbalanced. It has been said before, but it cannot be reiterated enough. There is an element of american society that is bonafidly, adamantly and definitely racist. She is solid within that group and they are that element of this society that supports her the most. Alaska Natives have been at the brunt of her virulent racism in our home state. It is well known here. One of our own overheard her comment when Obama beat out Hilary Clinton – that comment made while she was eating at a local restaurant and that comment was – “looks like Sambo beat the bitch”. Not only did she spew her hatred of Black people but also, underneath, in her core self, her basic hatred of other women. We can blame John McCain for his choice in picking her, but no matter where or when, she would be wreaking vicious havoc on everyone or anyone who stood in the way of her ambitions. Or anyone who came up against her on any of her baseless but lofty grasping for attention, power and control.

    She is dangerous to everyone. She would turn on those who agree & support her in a nano second if it suited her goals. Those who support her now just do not have ONE clue about the evil that is embodied in one sarah palin. They do not understand the mind of the psychopath/sociopath. Charming is one of their most IDENTIFYING traits. Remember Ted Bundy?

    Her husband is, as far as real Natives of Alaska are concerned, just another “sell-out”. What we refer to as totally “assimilated. He is of that class of racist heretofore spoken of and might as well be as white as she is. He has done NOTHING for Alaska Natives and being the shadow governor that he was, had plenty of opportunity to help out those villages of Native people in Alaska who had no heat nor enough food stored for the winter while his wife brought cookies and the reverend Billy Graham’s son to them as the greatest insult to our people done by officials in her capacity in recent memory. Oh, well let’s say THAT insult was pretty much the top of the heap of insults we as a group of people have endured at the hands of so many racist so called leaders in this country. sarah palin does not love Alaska and we are insulted that national media would give this wreck of human flesh attention that really belongs to its indigenous owners. But that IS the way of all sell-outs. IT IS STILL OUR ALASKA AND NOT hers. Get it right sold out media!

    Oliver Stone said publicly that if sarah palin gets elected to the presidency of this fallen down country(in so many layers of ways fallen down) – that americans would deserve what they got. Well, I can understand why he said that, but do not agree that we “deserve” this mentally unbalanced person leading the country. ONLY the people who favor and support her deserve her. The rest of us aspire to healthy, long-lived lives and our children and grandchildren deserve this the most. I, as a Native american, am not overly hopeful that racism will ever disappear from this country in particular, but I am wanting to hope that the majority of americans will overcome this blight upon a country that so many of us still believe is ours.

    Sarah Pain is the most divisive politican since Goldwater and George Wallace (deceased ex-Southern segregationist Gov. of Alabama in the 60′s). Why can’t extremist in both Political party’s stop bashing one another. Democrat’s did the same thing with former Pres. George W. Bush. I did not like it then and I do not like it now against Pres. Obama. I am an Independent and will only vote for mainstream candidates who have a platform and good policy on creating jobs and keeping our country from major catastrophies. When Candidates have nothing to say they bash their opponents. Just state how you can move our country forward in unity and leave the put-down’s alone! However, when you have nothing to say the easy way out is to trash your opponents.

    The Tea Party and Sarah Palin have no sense of reality if they do not realize their ship as already sailed!!! The Youth of America are free thinkers and can discern their grandparents hypocrisy and injustices. Many of Sarah Palin’s fans and some Tea Party extremist want to return America back to the good ole days. Whose good ole days are they talking about? I distinctly remember the “good ole days” they are talking about as an America where Colored Only signs existed, Workers had few labor rights and Women did not have equal pay for equal work and their women doctors, lawyers and politicians were few and far between. In the good old days women could not run for President . Miss Palin but would be stay at home mothers dependent on their husbands salary. So my question to Ms. Sarah Palin is whose good ole days is she talking about???
