Sarah Palin Speaks Out for 'Crucified' Chick-Fil-A President: VIDEO

Chicken_palin

Sarah Palin turned up on Greta Van Susteren's 'On the Record' last night to talk about her support for Chick-fil-A, gay marriage, and Dick Cheney calling McCain's choice of her as running mate a "mistake".

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

Chickfila_palinFirst, Chick-fil-A:

Well, that calling for the boycott is a real -- has a chilling effect on our 1st Amendment rights. And the owner of the Chick-fil-A business had merely voiced his personal opinion about supporting traditional definition of marriage, one boy, one girl, falling in love, getting married. And having voiced support for kind of that cornerstone of all civilization and all religions since the beginning of time, he then basically getting crucified.

I'm speaking up for him and his 1st Amendment rights and anybody else who would wish to express their not anti-gay people sentiment, but their support of traditional marriage, which President Obama and Joe Biden, they both supported the exact same thing until just a few months ago, when Obama had to flip-flop to shore up the homosexual voter base.

...anybody who is a protection -- somebody who wants to protect our Constitution, all of our constitutional rights, including that freedom of speech, should speak out on behalf of this individual, whose business is being harmed by those who are intolerant and are bigoted and are hypocritical because they don't agree with this man's personal opinion and the sentiment that he shared and they want to see him shut down and shut out of some communities.
That is the most narrow-minded and intolerant view that they can take, very hypocritical. So those who protect the Constitution, all of our rights, I would think, would stand up and be proud Americans and say, Thank God we have our 1st Amendment rights.

Later Greta asked her about states' rights and gay marriage:

I personally would love to see a national dialogue about what will America continue to define as marriage....And if you see, Greta, and pay attention to where the states have gone with this particular issue and the votes of the people, overwhelmingly, the people within the states have said they want to continue to define marriage as one man and one woman, as the Muslims do, orthodox Jews do, non- denominational Christians do, faith-practicing Catholics do. It truly is a cornerstone of religion and civilization.

  1. Sarah's hair looks awful. It's too long and has that unkempt, split-ends look about it. It makes her look ragged.

  2. Sarah the idiot strikes again. Boycotting a company does nothing to interfere with the owner's right to free speech. Her lack of knowledge and ability to reason are astonishing.

    And that hair. Please.

  3. The Boogeyman! Run for your life!
    She loves to push buttons because it never fails for her. You don't hear so much from Alan Grayson these days, do you. Both are basically ex-politicians.

  4. "Well, that calling for the boycott is a real -- has a chilling effect on our 1st Amendment rights.

    A - Boycotts are not violations of the First Amendment, that's a moronic statement

    B - The owner of Chick-fil-A voiced his support, yes, but his company also donated millions to hate groups that try and convince stupid people that gays are pedophiles

    C - Marriage is not the cornerstone of all civilization by any stretch, nor do all religions share your hatred

    "I'm speaking up for him and his 1st Amendment rights and anybody else who would wish to express their not anti-gay people sentiment, but their support of traditional marriage, which President Obama and Joe Biden, they both supported the exact same thing until just a few months ago, when Obama had to flip-flop to shore up the homosexual voter base."

    A - Again, I don't know why the conservatives are allowed to read their Constitutions like their Bibles and not get called out for it, but you can't pick and choose what the 1st Amendment says. Counterpoints and criticisms are also protected.

    B - Conservatives who use the term "flip-flop" to describe any action of the President are just brainwashed into FOX talking points. Mitt is the EPITOME of flip-flopping. It's devastating to him, because he truly can't make up his mind on anything, so they try to call out President Obama for a single-path evolution. Sorry, toots, when RMoney changes his mind back and forth and back and forth, THAT is flip flopping.

    Blah blah blah, Constitution, Constitution, First Amendment, First Amendment, Intolerance - just the bigots' playbook as told by the worst VP candidate, and one of the least intelligent politicians in U.S. History.

  5. No one is suppressing Dan Cathy's free speech, Sarah. He can be a disgusting bigot under the guise of a "traditional family" advocate all day long. It doesn't mean that he is protected from criticism or backlash. Sometimes there are consequences to things we say, even if we have the right to say them.

    Freedom of speech is alive and well in this country, otherwise I probably wouldn't have to see your ignorant face every time I logged onto Towleroad.

  6. She has no relevance.

  7. " traditional definition of marriage, one boy, one girl, falling in love, getting married."

    And here I thought the definition of marriage was one boy knocking up one girl and being forced to be engaged to his baby-momma until her mother is finished with her political campaign.

    I guess I was wrong...

  8. I had to stop the video. Why this woman gets ANY airplay is beyond me. She is so misinformed and stupid. If we just stop paying attention to these people perhaps they will go away.

  9. Thanks Tom. LOL. Took the words right out of my mouth. Go away you nasty hag!

  10. It's a smoke-screen to cover the real issue; CFA gives money to unethical hate groups. Mr. Cathy doesn't give the money out of his personal wealth; NOPE, Chick Fil A, the COMPANY, gives their money. And if you shop there, you do to. THAT IS THE ISSUE. It is not what he SAID, it's what he DOES. Personal responsibility is what the Palin Witch is always spouting, now she's talking out the other side of her witch mouth. Because that idiot Cathy won't just come out and admit he spoke out of turn and in an inappropriate manner. His PR guy just DIED for Pete's sake!
    I knew right leaders were going to turn this into an issue about 1st Amand and that is not what this is about. The right lobbyists call for boycotts all the damn time, remember American Cancer society b/c of stem cell research, Girl Scouts, Starbucks b/c they hire trans people, General Mills for their general support of hiring gay people? HYPOCRITES I HATE Palin and her gang.

  11. What about the JC Penney boycott by "One Million Moms"?

  12. Wait. Remind me. Who's this Sarah Palin again? And why is she important enough to post about?

  14. That this ignorant, shoot-from-the-hip, hate-monger is STILL being quoted in the news for ANYTHING is utterly mystifying. Who made this insignificant dolt God?

    Posted by: Bill | Aug 1, 2012 9:32:22 AM


  15. This is all so wrong. The last thing we need is to turn the 2012 presidential election into a referendum on marriage equality.

    The politicians in Boston, NYC, and Chicago are going to make a martyr out of Chick-fil-A.

    This is the worst time for this fight. The Fox News crowd is going to use this rally the Evangelicals to the polls. The GOP used anti-same sex marriage pleas in the 2004 election successfully.

    Posted by: Mark | Aug 1, 2012 9:39:10 AM


  16. Odd, then, that she didn't jump to the defense when equally chilling boycotts were called for against Starbucks and JC Penney. I mean, there couldn't be hypocricy here, could there?

    Posted by: Rob | Aug 1, 2012 9:48:09 AM


  17. God this woman is stupid. The right has been boycotting any and every company in years that supported marriage equality, employee benefits or anything else pro gay. Funny how none of them were bothered about the constitution or worried about the companies bottom line of the people they employed.

    They're angry because this has caused a public backlash and made the news, where as One Million Moms boycotts are derided and ignored and actually make the company money.

    Go away Sarah, even your own party is laughing at you.

    Posted by: Michaelandfred | Aug 1, 2012 9:48:17 AM


  18. This woman is so flippin' dumb it's remarkable she can get dressed in the morning. A boycott has nothing, repeat slowly for Sarah and her followers who troll these boards, N-O-T-H-I-N-G, to do with the first amendment.

    Second, where was Sarah Palin when The Million Moms or whatever those 10 thousand women call themselves when they were going to boycott J.C. Penny for having Ellen as their spokesperson? I must have missed Ms. Palin's TV interviews with her misguided and wrong first amendment yammering. Where was she when there was going to be a boycott of Starbucks because of their support for marriage equality? Again, she must have had a cold that day and couldn't rush to the nearest TV camera.

    Hey Sarah, do you know what a hypocrite is? Because if it walks like Sarah and talks like Sarah, it much be Sarah.

  19. "Merely voiced"? to the tune of millions of dollars! She is a dangerously deceptive person, and unfortunately is relevant. That CNN continues to give morons like SP airtime is a real problem. Also, why do they address her as governor? SP quit her job, a dereliction of duty to the people who elected her. I think it's a bad move to underestimate this woman, she is truly a threat, despite her poor command of the language and laughable "expertise" in all things scientific, historical and sociological.

  20. When Christ said not to judge, anti-gay 'christians' argue back it's 'freedom of speech' and 'freedom of religion'.

    When Christ did NOT condemn homosexuality at all, anti-gay 'christians' protest that homosexuality is an 'abomination' to their 'god' and condemn it as 'sin'.

    When Christ gave the commandments to love God AND love thy neighbor as thyself as the GREATEST commandments above ALL biblical laws, Hate-Fill-AntiChrist organizations like Chick-Fil-A and other anti-gay 'christians' strike back again in support and vote for many discrimination laws like Prop8 and DOMA, the highest federal discrimination law above all state laws.

    When REAL Christians and gays go against the anti-gay 'christians' , the latter call it 'intolerant'.

    Posted by: ichabod | Aug 1, 2012 9:56:37 AM


  23. Mark,
    You are so right about this. I'm F'CKIN' SICK of the pro-gay left being baited and falling victim to these Republican political black ops. Always just in time for an election! For all we know, Cathy was asked by Republican/Romney operatives to make this an issue again, knowing it would arouse the left with their nonsensical talk of boycotts. The idiotic mayors joining in is just icing on the cake...I can hear old pork-face Karl Rove saying "I didn't expect that to happen" just as the 9/11 terrorists were unexpectedly delighted by the buildings falling down so quickly.
    ALL this firestorm can do is encourage lard-arse tea partiers who otherwise would not have bothered, to go vote for Romney. NO person out there is going to think "gee whiz, the Republican right doesn't support gays. Wow I didn't know THAT before! I guess I'll switch my vote to Obama." NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. The ONLY thing this will do is to help Romney. And guess what, that snake doesn't even have to say anything. He doesn't even have to wade into the swamp. He's letting "us" do his work for him.
    Guess what? Fast food is cr-p. Here's an idea...don't eat it! Would anybody care if the owner of Waste Management Inc. made anti-gay statements and donated to anti-gay causes. Would we all boycott having our trash hauled away? It's the same line of business, believe me!

    Posted by: EchtKultig | Aug 1, 2012 9:58:31 AM


  24. Let me put it this way: a _fast food_ chain founded in and historically most active in the _South_ is lead by an anti-gay bigot. BIG F'IN SURPRISE THERE, GUYS! My waste management example was a bad one, now that I think about it: of course you have much more of a choice on where to clog your arteries with fast food than who hauls your trash, which is contracted at a municipal level for most people. So, let the idiotic CEO make his statements and his donations, and choose to poison yourself somewhere else. Don't give the reich-wing another chance to paint gays or the people who support their right to exist as "fascists" who want to "deny" people their "first-amendments" right. All BS of course, but for morons who vote Republican but have trouble relating to Romney (as well they should) more than convincing.
