Sarah Palin Chimes in on Syria — Proves Her Ignorance and Prejudice Once Again

spalinYou knew this was coming.  You just had to know Sarah Palin would offer her two cents about Syria and our possible military involvement in the country.

Well, the former Alaska Governor took to her Facebook page to express her opinion about the possibility that our military may soon become involved.  She posted:

“So we’re bombing Syria because Syria is bombing Syria? And I’m the idiot?”

And at the top of her Facebook page she wrote the message, “LET ALLAH SORT IT OUT.”

Where to even begin.  First, “let allah sort it out” displays the depths of her ignorance.  Not to mention the comment itself is essentially prejudiced and a clear mocking of the Muslim religion.

But there’s nothing quite like a woman who claims to be a “good Christian” being so flippant about the horrific tragedies that have occurred in Syria the last 2+ years.

Then we have her, “So we’re bombing Syria because Syria is bombing Syria? And I’m the idiot?” comment.

Well let me answer her question: Yes, Sarah, I’m calling you the idiot.  

If that is how simplistic you see war and what’s gone on in Syria with over 120,000 dead and strong evidence that chemical weapons were used, then yes—you’re a complete idiot if you break the whole situation down into a moronic joke like that.

But we shouldn’t ignore the irony of her previous support of George W. Bush, a man who got us involved in not one but two wars.  One of which was a direct invasion of a country that wasn’t at war, wasn’t threatening to attack us and posed literally no threat to the United States.

She also goes on later to talk about how we have “no interest in Syria.”  Oh, excuse me Sarah.  I’m sorry if the use of chemical weapons to commit genocide and the deaths of over 120,000 people doesn’t give “Americans any interest.”

I wasn’t aware that the prerequisite for defending human rights and opposing genocide was that the United State must have a vested interest in the country.

But believe me, if there were a Republican in the White House right now, you can bet we’d suddenly have a “vested interest” in Syria.  All you would be hearing from these people is the “threat to Israel” the civil war in Syria might pose.

The heart of Sarah Palin’s comments only goes to show just how ignorant this woman truly is.  Her mind — seemingly incapable of understanding the complexities of war or what’s going on in Syria — and her obsession with attacking President Obama on anything he does are put on full display as her rampant jealousy oozes from deep within her.  Because Obama is one thing she will never be…

President of the United States.
