Sarah Palin Pathetically Tries to Exploit Christ for Money (Video)

sarah-palin-channel-christmasChristmas is just around the corner, which means that Republicans are out in force with their fictional “war on Christmas” nonsense that they churn out every year. It’s really quite comical. As if there’s some active push to remove Christ from Christmas. The only removal of Christ most liberals I know want is from places where religion doesn’t belong (government, public schools, legislation and forced on people who aren’t religious or follow other religions other than Christianity).


And every year like clockwork, one of the biggest pushers of this absurdity is Sarah Palin.

Well, it seems this year she’s taking her absurdity to another level by essentially trying to exploit Jesus Christ to sell her book.

“Oh, I am so excited for people to get to read this Christmas book, while protecting the heart of Christmas,” Palin says.

Yes, because nothing says you’re trying to save the “heart of Christmas” quite like exploiting the holiday season to try to push people to buy a Christmas book.

“What we believe in is freedom of expressing our faith and what our beliefs are, not allowing just a few angry atheists with attorneys perhaps to tell us that we can’t celebrate the birth of Christ the way that we would like to,” she continued. “And it’s not an in-your-face political lecture, it’s a fun book that incorporates the solution to the challenge that is the war on Christmas that we see taking place right now.”

So, it’s not an “in-your-face political lecture” – says the woman who just used very politically divisive phrases like “angry atheists with attorneys” and “the war on Christmas” when describing said book.

She also thinks the book will hopefully “spark some inspiration in other people to allow them, no matter what faith anyone is, allow them some Christmas joy to spread.”

Unless, of course, you’re “an angry atheist” or any number of other groups of people she probably insults in the book.


She’s just the worst. I understand that people often use this time of year to promote and push products hoping to benefit off the holiday season, and there’s nothing wrong with that. But for her to sit there and tell people that this book is about “protecting the heart of Christmas” when it’s blatantly obvious that it’s about “exploiting the holiday season to hopefully make a lot of money from book sales” is laughable.

Let’s call this what this is – it’s Palin exploiting Christ’s name to sell a Christmas book hoping that she can make a lot of money from it. Because if she were really concerned with “protecting the heart of Christmas,” she wouldn’t be trying to profit from doing it.

    You can celebrate anyway you want, just don’t shove your beliefs down my throat.

    • Jim Bean

      How would one go about shoving their beliefs down your throat?

      • regressive white trash reli

        by (a ) bringing that crap out in public (b) by attempting religious-infused legislation (c) by trying to get schools to alter history to make any religion paramount to “learning”; especially in a historical context
        =========================================
        cmon james,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, U are smarter than 2 ask that ^^above^^^ question!

      • Jim Bean

        What you’ve described is placing certain menu items on the table for you to choose from. Not the same.

      • regressive white trash reli

        wrong,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
        that’s how reeeeeeeeeeee-publicans go about shoving their VOODOO/superstition ‘down our throats’
        =======================================
        or,,,,,,, should I bring up the inquistitions? maybe what the Europeans did to the south American Indians?

        How about that Parasite religion Business pay up their fair share of the Tax burden then we could finally Drop the income taxes once and for all time. But Nooo, it is all about protecting the Parasites.

      • Jim Bean

        They’re paying plenty and in a situation where you are paying none things begin deteriorate because your sense of ownership evaporates and your sense of entitlement inflates.

      • regressive white trash reli

        news flash james:

        news flash for the mentally stultified:
        im speaking about religions en mass; not an individual–
        in America churches ( and other places of ‘worship’ ) pay NO INCOME TAX
        ======================================

        nice try ( actually a poor try but its the season 2 be jolly)
        churches pay NO taxes
        ================================
        please refute

      • Jim Bean

        You don’t even make sense. Churches get no entitlements so the likelihood their sense of entitlement would inflate is just . . .well . . .slightly less than zero. How come that got by you?

      • regressive white trash reli

        churches pay no income tax

Next time you’re having wild white trash sex with you’re “woman” don’t get excited and give her a hickey or she may burst and fly out a window.

      • regressive white trash reli

    After protests demanding ‘dead cops’ result in two dead cops, Progressives quickly identify the top issue of the day to be Sarah Palin.

    • regressive white trash reli

      many fine police; for certain—————- we should also see that TOO many cops are outofcontrol ,,,,affecting whites/ blacks/ women/ kids,,,,,,,whats worse: dead cops or dead (usually innocent) civilians?
      those 2 police were assassinated by a scumbag
      ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
      he should’ve nuked palin and limp-baugh instead

      • Jim Bean

        This is scary. I agree with everything right up to (but not including) the Palin/Limbaugh spasm.

      • regressive white trash reli

        I –and many others— would choose the physical demise of those 2 overpaid idiots over the police who had done NOTHING wrong to society. Cretins such as palin and limp-baugh and jesse Jackson and Beck and Sharpton and Bachmann and coulter are not to be missed AT ALL when they leave up ( the sooner the better)

      • Frank DiCuffolk

        That’s not what you said. You said they should be nuked. You called for their assassination, just like the protesters in NYC who called for more dead cops.

        It’s rhetoric like yours that gets people killed.

      • regressive white trash reli

        actually my semantics reflected the COMPARISON; of choosing those two white trash liar regressive scumbags over the two innocent cops

        Any violent rhetoric, repeated often enough, is going to begin the incitement of violence at some point. While the left is angry, and yes, making comments in anger, it is the right with their relentless fear mongering, government hating, “the gubbmint ain’t takin mah guns” and condonation of acts of violence rhetoric that is now starting to get people killed. It’s going to get worse too – breaks my heart.

      • OyCuffookHumid

        Oh really, you are WRONG. it is your boy Obozo and his lack of leadership combined with all you unemployed libtards.

      • Jillz

        LMAO! I see. As if the inability to respond rationally and reasonably to a post wasn’t enough of a red-flag, it is your use of the inane “Obozo” that gives you away as a right-wing low information voter; and your use of the suffix ‘tard’ that shows who you are as a person. Go find your guns, son, in case “Obozo” sends his gubbmint goons to come confiscate them!

      • Thebob

        Obama, had and still has no experience at running anything in his entire life…Even when he was in the State Legislature in IL he didn’t even Vote 80% of the time he was “Present” Same for his time in the Senate….Only reason he was elected is because of his skin color period…Black people rallied behind him and look were that has gotten them. Most black communities are worse off with him in office.. Black unemployment is double that of any other group. Chiraq is out of control people are killed by the hundreds there. It is pretty said that Chicago has a higher death rate than what our soldiers had in a war zone(s).

      • regressive white trash reli

        Obama beat McCain with POPULAR vote in 2008,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
        Obama DESTROYED mitt in 2012 with popular vote
        =========================================
        so,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, U were sayin’ sumpin’?

      • Thebob

        Okay, I wish Popular vote is what mattered…We would have a very different country had they not cheated the system. Pool all the Government loving, Governement needed folk into massive cities and enact an Electoral College to make the voting system fair…My ass. Most of the country is Center or Right of Center, you so called progressives, Are an extreme minority of the voting populations Electoral college was the only way for you to win elections. Read your history…And don’t bring up what you just stated…I wish Al nutso Gore would’ve won in 2000 with the popular vote, he wouldn’t have been re-elected and we wouldn’t have Obama the Constitution Destroyer in office today….Romney was a tool and is a tool, he had no chance of winning, just like McCain had no chance of winning. Both are progressive so called Republicans….Only reason Obama won was the color of his skin….and look were that has gotten us. Black people are far worse off than before. Black unemployment is double that of any other segment and they only make up 13% of the population.

      • regressive white trash reli

        electoral voting has been in place since the early days,,,,,,,,,,, ( read the federalist papers) an was done 1st in 1845.
        again,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, popular vote had Obama winning in 2008; even more in 2012

        You like the Government?? Are they your God??? And that is correct You ain’t takin my guns!!! You will come to thank people like myself and millions of others some day, when the men in black come to take you away. We will be the ones there to defend your right to live freely.

      • Jillz

        You’re projecting some unknown meaning on to what I said. Typical. How does anything in my post suggest that I like (or dislike) government, and how did poor misrepresented God get into this?

        Anyway. Thanks for proving my point. Hopefully the only violence your rhetoric causes is when you shoot yourself in the foot while cleaning your gun! Maybe that will be before the men in WHITE come to take YOU away 😉

      • Thebob

        Yes I added that myself as it should be there, perfect example, Abbu Gahrib Prison soldiers were following orders they were still convicted as those orders were un-lawful and should not have been followed…Just as the President tells the ICE DHS not to deport federal criminals…UN-LAWFUL ORDER pertaining to our deportation laws…So clearly he is defying his own Oath just like I took to uphold the laws of our nation and to defend the Constitution….The ICE/DHS should be inclined to disobey those orders as they are un-lawful and continue to deport all violators of our federal immigration laws….How can one law be held to a higher standard than another….If you steal something regardless if it is a piece of gum or a car is it still stealing?? Is it up to the officer or ADA to determine if that is a just law or not, no it isn’t. Why should it be our nations responsibility to take in millions of another nations poor and sick whose people won’t even stand up to their own corrupt government. We are getting more and more people that just sit there bent over and take it from behind willingly from our Government, when our Government already provides billions in aid to those said countries just for that purpose yet it is misused by their corrupt Governments…Just like our hand outs the hand outs we give to other nations keeps them down and beholden to our country so they cannot get on their own feet. And yes, I am sure my interpretation of the Bible differs from you own if you actually read it or believe in it… God gave us free will, free to chose, and come up with our own belief of what we think God is to us…Each person is going to have a different view of God and their own interpretation of what the Bible means to them. I could read a verse and get a different meaning out of the same passage as yourself…Everything is to interpretation and should be questioned relentlessly, just like our Government.

      • regressive white trash reli

        if “god” gave us free will……………
        ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,seems 2 me “god” is PRO CHOICE; eh?

      • Thebob

        Thou shalt not kill, ring any bells??? So, then when its called choice it doesn’t count as killing someone, but when a mom decides to shove a knife into her belly then it counts as murder…Or when a drunk drive hits a pregnant mom and kills her he is charged with double murder, so in some cases it’s murder yet in some it’s called the moms choice…That is such a fuked up logic and way of thinking….It is one or the other, either the unborn child is a life or it isn’t until it has been born….Then what about C-section…That baby wasn’t born it was removed…So if someone kills that baby is that even murder because the baby wasn’t delivered it was removed….Where does the logic start and were does it end. Sorry, but I don’t think an abortion should be a convince procedure just because you don’t feel like having a baby at this time or ever, if that is the case then have your tubes tied you whore. If you think you are responsible enough to have sex then you need to be responsible enough to suffer the consequences of doing so and that is bringing another life into this world….85% of abortions in this country are done by black teenage to mid 20s women. That is saying something. Margret Sanger the so called Feminazi goddess, was an out right racist and want to use Planned Parenthood as a eugenics means to get rid of black people and other races. Again do your research, most of YOUR parties ideas and so called leaders are, were and continue to be racists.

But yes you are correct, we have free will and God also gave some guidelines to how life SHOULD be live, but doesn’t have to be followed if that is your choice…

      • regressive white trash reli

        Doesn’t change the fact they want to and try to consistently across the board for most libtards, but to many blue dogs southern democrats like their guns, thank God….Most if not all laws concerning guns are un-Constitutional. Shall not be infringed….I am for laws keeping guns away from violent criminals, but, whatever type of guns weapons that are accessible to Law Enforcement should be also available to Civilians…Police are now basically the Governments Standing Occupying Army….Most also call themselves a Para-Military Force…..Sorry, that is exactly why the 2nd Amendment was created, and pretty simple to understand…States and citizens have a right to a Militia and if needed or deemed necessary they can use that Militia to defend the Constitution from a corrupt overreaching Government same goes for civilians… To quote Admiral Yamamoto “You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass.” I am proud of this fact. Another “I fear all we have done is to awake a sleeping giant and fill him with resolve.” This is exactly what is going on right now in America. The American people are finally waking up, and that giant is gonna march and his wrath will be felt from sea to shining sea…

      • Thebob

        Also back to name calling….Sheeple following your heard….I honestly haven’t heard one intelictual comment come from you all. If I show you facts you call me names, you post something semi coeherent and then resort to childish behavior, do to probably being immature or a mental disability, which is exactly what being a libtard is a mental disability. “Based on strikingly irrational beliefs and emotions, modern liberals relentlessly undermine the most important principles on which our freedoms were founded,” says Dr. Lyle Rossiter, author of the new book, “The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness.” “Like spoiled, angry children, they rebel against the normal responsibilities of adulthood and demand that a parental government meet their needs from cradle to grave.”

      • Thebob

        Here’s more facts since you like them so much. “A social scientist who understands human nature will not dismiss the vital roles of free choice, voluntary cooperation and moral integrity – as liberals do,” he says. “A political leader who understands human nature will not ignore individual differences in talent, drive, personal appeal and work ethic, and then try to impose economic and social equality on the population – as liberals do. And a legislator who understands human nature will not create an environment of rules which over-regulates and over-taxes the nation’s citizens, corrupts their character and reduces them to wards of the state – as liberals do.”

      • Thebob

        And some more:
        Dr. Rossiter says the liberal agenda preys on weakness and feelings of inferiority in the population by:

        creating and reinforcing perceptions of victimization;

        satisfying infantile claims to entitlement, indulgence and compensation;

        augmenting primitive feelings of envy;

        rejecting the sovereignty of the individual, subordinating him to the will of the government.

        “The roots of liberalism – and its associated madness – can be clearly identified by understanding how children develop from infancy to adulthood and how distorted development produces the irrational beliefs of the liberal mind,” he says. “When the modern liberal mind whines about imaginary victims, rages against imaginary villains and seeks above all else to run the lives of persons competent to run their own lives, the neurosis of the liberal mind becomes painfully obvious.”

      • Thebob

        So, I will just take it as you can’t help it cause you are mentally challenged; you must call me names and degrade other humans who do not see eye to eye with you; you must shut out the truth with blinders on, because that is how your brain is wired and that you can’t help it……You make up causes just because you can; or try to create issues were there really isn’t or very small issues become a must fix national issue when it could be handled locally or at a State level….It’s okay, we know you are ill….So from now on I will type in small easy to read sentences and words so your challenged brain can understand.

Nazis’ USSR, China, and many nations have used and continue to use False Flag attacks to incite violence and create agendas and laws to fuel their bid for control…Romans burned their own city and blamed it on an innocent people so they could justify an invasion to their people…Nazis’ used this tactic to invade Poland.

    I should have taken a video last night of proof the war on Christmas is a myth. We were at the mall. A church, I didn’t catch their name, had a small group of members singing in the center of one of the branches of the mall. They had roughly a ratio of two general Christian songs (like played on Christian radio) for every Christmas carol. Between each song their preacher would discuss the war on Christmas and how all, as good Christians, need to do everything we can to maintain the holiness of the holiday and keep Jesus the primary, if not exclusive, focus of the season. No one booed this group (even though they weren’t all that good, like watching Christian kareoke) but instead people paused a few seconds to listen and clapped politely when they’d finished a song. They were allowed to publicly display their very much religiously based holiday celebration. I found it surprising that the mall had given up a couple hours of mall space to them concidering that they were also preaching celebrating Jesus is far more important than buying gifts. Not exactly a mall friendly message. If the mall refuses them next year it will be chalked up as the war on Christmas instead of remembering that part of what their group promoted while in the mall was to forgo buying objects and instead spread the word of Christ.

        They had gone through the proper procedure to be allowed their time, I go to the mall at most 3x a year, so I can’t say I have any knowledge of what other faiths are allowed to share their holiday celebrations, but it wasn’t so much the church group as the crowd reaction. There was a variety of people there that would pause to politely listen and some stood long enough to allow their toddlers/preschoolers to dance to a song or two. Maybe 2/3 of the people that stopped were Caucasian, it is likely that a fraction of the crowd wasn’t Christian. I was there with an atheist. No one heckled. No one was griping or getting upset. Not everyone stopped to listen, but there was no signs of this hatred towards Christianity and Christmas that is claimed. Perhaps some people might make a complaint to the mall (considering the group was preaching taking commercialism out of the holiday along with Christ some of the stores might end up more offended than anyone), but the people that were at the mall were civil towards this church group. The reaction went completely against the claims of this anger by non-Christians over such a demonstration. This was a crowded mall the weekend before Christmas, and no one treated them rudely. I once saw Davy Jones (of the Monkees) singing at Epcot. They had him singing along the main walkway and he was heckled (rather loudly.) A fairly well known singer was treated more rudely at Epcot than some church members were in a mall. If this war on Christmas was like the claims then why wouldn’t someone, at least some smart aleck teens, been giving the group a hard time? Why would they be treated civilly if there was this rampant agenda by non-Christians which no one except the most conservative are willing to speak out against??

        What city/town and state was this?

      • Cemetery Girl

        Ohio, the Northest area of Ohio. I don’t give out information on the specific area in Northeast Ohio in which I live. There are strange people on the Internet and children to think of.

      • Jim Bean

        I don’t blame you.

      • Cemetery Girl

        Thank you. I know that some people will claim that unless you are willing to provide specific locations, dates, times, names of people involved then it never happened. I just do not give out specifics that can lead strangers to my family. As a parent, it would be irresponsible.

    There is no such thing as god…get over it. It takes religion to get good people to do bad things.
