Sarah Palin Mocks Diabetic Pregnant Woman Who Fainted During Obama Speech, Calls it “Hilarious”

How anyone can call themselves a fan of Sarah Palin baffles me.  Sure, I get the hardcore conservatives who’ll cheer almost anything a Republican public figure says, but Sarah Palin is nothing more than a babbling idiot.

During her few years of fame, there’s been no shortage of material showing just how reprehensible she really is as a human being.

But her mocking of a Type 1 diabetic pregnant woman on her Facebook Page just might be the most disgusting thing I’ve ever seen her say.  

Let me paste part of what she said, then I’ll continue:

“Whether accurate or not, for some reason I found this hilarious! Am I out of bounds for cracking up when I saw this take on a nauseated Obama fan, her absentminded pal, and our President’s heroics this week?  If so, penance paying I’ll accept.”

Honestly, you know the worst part?   By the last part of what I just posted, she knew what she posted was disgusting—she just didn’t care.  Now I don’t care who you are, or what you believe in politically, mocking the severe health conditions of another human being is inexcusable.

Which is especially pathetic in Palin’s case considering she has a young son who has Down Syndrome.  A situation in her personal life some people have actually made jokes about, which she fiercely denounced — and we even sided with Palin against the disgusting attacks veiled as “jokes” levied by some people like Bill Maher.

Then she has the gall to come out on Facebook mocking Karmel Allison, a woman who’s lived with Type 1 diabetes and is currently pregnant, for fainting during the president’s speech.

She even went a bit further by saying she understood why some might feel the whole ordeal was staged, and linked to a conspiracy theorist’s ridiculous article about it.  Feeding into the right-wing whack jobs who believe anything and everything to do with President Obama is some kind of “false flag” or conspiracy.

Because when you mock a pregnant woman’s health, why not compound it by feeding into the absurd conspiracy theory being pushed by quite a few on the right that the whole thing was staged?

And if you really want to vomit a little in your mouth, have a look at the comments on her page about this post.  You’ll be hard-pressed to find any of these “right-wing Christians” calling her out for her terrible remarks.

Oh, no—they agreed with her.  Most of the comments I read on there fully believe the whole thing was staged.  That is how far Republicans have fallen.  That is how much they hate the president.  They really believe he would go to such lengths to make himself look good that he’d stage something such as this?  I mean really?  That’s how petty these people are?

I guess so.

But at the end of the day what we have is just another prime example of Palin “being Palin.”  Which means she was being a disgusting babbling idiot who wouldn’t know how to behave like a decent human being if it was written step by step on her hand.
