Sarah Palin At The Right Online 'New Media' Conference: VIDEO


It would take a long, long essay to untangle all the inaccuracies in Sarah Palin's headlining address at the Right Online conference this weekend. (The most glaring, to this viewer, has to do with Barack Obama's energy policies, which have resulted in unprecedented energy independence for the United States -- but never mind.) Suffice it to say: This is a woman who, despite having once majored in journalism, was incapable of naming an American newspaper less than five years ago, and who is now speaking authoritatively to a roomful of adulateurs about the future of media.

What's heartbreaking about Palin's address is the way she bluntly discounts the Americanness of those who disagree with her, and especially those who've actually taken to the street to protest voice those disagreements -- say, when she visited Wisconsin to support embattled governor Scott Walker. Dissenters aren't people to be engaged: they're savage, sex-and-violence crazed thugs who must be combatted and expelled from the American conversation. It's internet-troll logic, improbably elevated into the highest heights of American political discourse.

And then there's this moment of pure class, during which Palin excoriates the American media for failing to "vet" Barack Obama in 2008:

Why did they at least not read his autobiography? They’d have a learned a whole lot. They’d have learned a whole lot, and not just about that pot smoking and that cocaine snorting and what he ate -- Fido, Rufus. I think it is funny that the cocktail circuit circus gives me a hard time for eating elk and moose, but come on. There’s a difference. Anybody here have a pet moose? There’s a difference.

... except it's not the "cocktail party" circuit, and it's certainly not President Obama. It's the tabloids. And by having a go at Fido and coke, she's joined their cause.

Watch Palin's speech AFTER THE JUMP ...

  2. Unfortunately her thoughts have infiltrated my family and they are now aliens, too. So even if I stay away from her her alien babies have inpregnanted them.

  3. Unelected officials took over Washington and control over the media after the coup and cover up. Most of the comments online are financed with our tax dollars. Big brother is trying to create the perception of public opinion while burying the truth. They think you can't handle the truth. Fact of the matter is we have no democracy, president, and freedom of press is an illusion.

    Our next election is shaping up to be as big of a sham as the last. Do you know why Sarah Palin's bus tour was really canceled? Do you know why she stayed 30 miles away from the second debate and chose the death of Steve Jobs to announce that she's not running? Know what leaked out? Sarah Palin and Cain aren't in the race for the same reason, the truth leaked out.

  4. Let's see. You say her "inaccuracies" are "too numerous to mention" and then fail to mention a single one.

    Maybe you haven't heard, but the thugs in the occupy movement were raping so many young women, including under age girls, that "sanctuary" tents and "rape free zones" had to be established. These people are animals, and the occupy movement shows us all what anarchy looks like, and it isn't pretty.

    When Palin went to Wisconsin last year to speak to the people of the state including hard working union members, the union THUGS, who had already caused several million dollars worth of damage to the state capital in Madison, surrounded the huge gathering. Armed and dangerous, they were looking for trouble. Palin never blinked.

    I don't know of a single democrat, and only a handful of Conservatives who have the kind of raw guts Palin has.

    She stood there looking the violent union thugs in the eye and said "bring it"

    BTW, her appeal to the honest hard working non-thug union members worked, as 38% of union households voted for Governor Walker in the recent landslide election.

    Maybe if you'd take your nose from Obama's backside and look around you, you'd get that America is fed up with the dangerous anti-American in the White House, and the violent thugs he has out there doing his bidding.

    Here's Palin in Wisconsin. You should watch it. It'll show you what real leadership looks and sounds like:

  7. It seems that those with unresolved issues of their own are the harshest, and sometimes vilest, critics of those they deem successful. There is no need for this sort of rhetoric. It demeans you, not the undeserving victims of your verbal assaults. People are weary of such language from a supposedly educated nation. No one is angry at you, except yourselves.
