Put a microphone in front of Sarah Palin and pure stupidity is bound to come spilling out. She’s like a windup doll named “Idiot Barbie” that simply spits out one idiotic statement after another, with her favorite phrase being some reference to the federal government and slavery.
How about this rule: Nothing is “like” slavery unless it involves the ownership or selling of other human beings like property.
It’s a rule Sarah Palin really needs to abide by.
Speaking at a conservative fundraiser in Iowa, the tea party “darling” once again invoked the idea that something currently going on in our government is tantamount to slavery.
This time she said our federal debt is essentially slavery. Well, I guess that makes Republicans “slave owners” according to Palin, as they’ve done nothing but grow our national debt every single time they’ve been in the White House.
I apologize, Sarah, I didn’t mean to use facts. I know you struggle with comprehending anything truthful.
But speaking at this fundraiser, Palin said:
“This free stuff, so seductive. Why do you think marketers use free stuff to bring people in? Free stuff is such a strong marketing ploy. But didn’t you all learn too in Econ 101 there ain’t no such thing as a free lunch? Our free stuff today is being paid for by taking money from our children and borrowing from China. When that note comes due , and this isn’t racist, but it’s going to be like slavery when that note is due. We are going to be beholden to a foreign master. Because there is no plan coming out of Washington, D.C. to stop the incurrence of debt.”
Before moving on, here’s a fun fact: Since Obama has been president we’ve reduced our deficits from $1.4 trillion in 2009 to $680 billion for 2013. So it would seem there’s some kind of a plan as our deficits continue to be reduced.
Now, on to her comment. First, I love how she references Economics 101 like she’s trying to sound intelligent, followed by a saying “ain’t no” which is a double negative.
And don’t give me this whole “our children” will be paying for this. Republicans sure didn’t mind spending trillions to give the rich massive tax breaks or to fund two wars. It’s funny, only when we spend money helping Americans and helping “our children,” then we suddenly can’t afford it.
This woman’s absurdity seems to know no bounds. And I absolutely hate giving this narcissist any kind of attention, but the sad truth of the matter is—she still has massive influence within the tea party, therefore she has influence over our government.
But as annoying as she is, and as much as I hate giving her attention, a part of me actually wants to keep people like her at the forefront of the Republican party. Who better to show the utter stupidity and ignorance of the GOP than people like Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz, Glenn Beck, Michele Bachmann, Allen West, Steve King and other right-wing radicals.
These are the people I really want on the front page of every story that involves the GOP. The more Americans associate these buffoons with the Republican party, the better it is for the liberal movement.
Because it’s ridiculous comments like these from Sarah Palin which showcase the true ignorance of the Republican party as a whole.
