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


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".


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. Did she actually mention marriage, our constitution and the gay community in one sentence? Has anyone, ever, who is against gay marriage even approached discussing the 14th Amendment?

    The hypocrisy from the cherry pickers never ceases to amaze.

  4. I am grateful that Mr. Chick-Fil-A's first amendment constitutional rights to express his bigotry are protected. Helps me know where to vote with my dollars.

    Your constitutionally protected free speech rights are not without constitutionally protected consequences though: no Chick-Fil-A for me, the LGBT community, and an increasing number of straight allies. Thank you for helping highlight that your brand of bigotry and your funding of hate groups is quite simply not good for business.

    Oh, and no bigotry pizza from Domino's for me either...

  5. There's more than 10 minutes of this? Yikes! How can anyone call this woman "Governor" with a straight face. Well, it is Greta Van Scientology so she's probably well programmed, but I digress. Palin served out half of her term because she couldn't hack it. Now she's on television 24/7 spouting her opinions with her hammed-up faux drawl.

  6. WHO IS THIS WOMAN (with her suspiciously metrosexual looking husband)?!? She was a fluke four years ago, with dubious accomplishments, and knowledge of mostly nothing outside her state. ANYTHING she seems to know is either a talking point, or something she crammed into her empty head since late 2008! She has no particular area of expertise, and yet is taken as a leading light on the right. I just don't get her enduring appeal and status.

  7. I watched this nonsense last night. Sarah Palin's limited vocabulary consists of the same dozen buzzwords ("Liberty!" "Back on track!" "False narrative!" etc.) that she spouts over and over. I kept hoping Greta van Sustern would ask her a follow-up question such as "When you say 'Obama's failed policies' what exactly are you talking about? Can you give us an example?" but that would be real journalism and that's too much to expect from Fox News.

  8. Quote: " Catholics"

    So nice to see that even though SP is living in her own little bubble where up is down and right is wrong, she recognizes that a lot of catholics do NOT agree with her on the issue of marriage equality.
    But of course, she can't put herself in the same group as them, so they are categorised as non-faith-practicing catholics. I'm sure she thinks she's been very clever.

  11. Well, well, folks. Let's keep things in perspective....FoxNews? Sarah Palin? What is so surprising about what comes out of either? They spew crap to people who don't know crap. They preach to the choir.Sarah Palin is a $$$ highly paid talking head Fu*ksNews, Plain and simple. She is a moron. FoxNews is a cash-cow, using the far right to gain millions of $$$'s. Like the Rush-lovers. His listeners make him richer and richer every day and they still don't know crap. Rush does, Palin doesn't. There is a difference. Her jive tribe proves their white-trash roots every day.She is too stoopid to know that she is stoopid. She needs to fade away. She is so not relevant today (or was ever, really)
    Shoo! Beat it sister!

  12. She's such a mess.
    Hateful and STUPID...what a combo.

  13. Just to clarify: Not only does a boycott not have a "chilling affect" on First Amendment rights, it is an EXPRESSION of First Amendment rights.

  14. All those people packing Chick-Fil-A today are a sign of things to come.

    Democrats should be very afraid. Especially the Kenyan pResident.

    Chick-Fil-A is just a proxy for the voting booth on November 6th.

    People can't wait to vote against the Left and defeat them. They are champing at the bit.

  16. Wow after all this years of the palin phenomenon I still can only understand half of what she says...urgh

  17. Cow defends chicken - Perfect!

    Funny how retailers are admonished by the right for getting involved with the "culture wars" and promoting "lifestyles" (e.g., JCP), but Chick-fil-A's Cathy is defended and a "chilling effect" on free speech is feared when the chicken crosses the road.

    Freedom, apparently, is only for God's "good" people. Dear God, save me from your "good" people.

  18. Typical. Spewing bigotry is exercising your first amendment rights, but speaking out against bigotry is somehow an attack on the first amendment. She uses the constitution the same way she uses the Bible—as a weapon of convenience.

  19. Palin is the ultimate political strip-tease, thrusting and rubbing her self all over a White House column. The dollars rain down and she gives them another sneak peek at what’s under that dress. See just how nasty America’s Top MILF will get for the cash at

  20. Message to Sarah - Go cluck yourself.

  21. Of course she's a dumb beach with no brain...but she's also a "bigot". Not because of this chicken's much bigger than that. She, and her ilk, are jumping on this chicken shat, but in reality they want us gone. Ask anyone who supports Mr. Chick & is against marriage equality and I'll bet they don't want us in their schools, parks, families or near their food. They're one and the same people. That's why we're pissed at this...because it's so much bigger than chicken. This is just the tip of the iceberg known as the christian right. How many of these people do you think support our rights...other than marriage equality? Next to none !

  22. The title should read "Desperate Media Whore Struggles to Still Be Relevant"...

  23. She does whatever it takes to keep her name alive. It keeps her speaking fees high.

  24. I wish she'd choke on a waffle fry and shut up...for good.
