So Now Palin Tells Teabaggers To Stop Cars With Obama Stickers…

 

OMG! Sarah Palin is not a very nice person.  I’m sure Palin knows about the horrific incident that happened to a man and his 10 year old daughter recently…because he had an Obama sticker on the back of his vehicle. 

Although her message about stopping the cars with Obama bumper stickers sounds benign, I’m actually not sure it is. 

Any type of mild to violent confrontation could take place and I’m sure she knows it.  Yet, playing off the event of just three days ago, she has asked her teabaggers to stop cars with Obama stickers!  Someone call the men in white with the straight jackets.  That woman needs help.

Here’s what she said specifically:  (In the link to the video, she starts at exactly 3:00.)

Her remarks focused mainly on Sen. Reid, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and President Obama, the latter of whom was the opponent of the McCain-Palin ticket in the 2008 presidential campaign.  Palin beckoned to two familiar phrases from the Obama-Biden campaign.

“That bumper sticker that maybe you’ll see on the next Subaru driving by — an Obama bumper sticker — you should stop the driver and say, ‘So how is that hopey, changey thing working out for ya?’” Palin said, poking at two words closely tied to Mr. Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, “hope” and “change.”

She did clarify her remark so as to not offend Subaru owners: “I shouldn’t be disrespectful; I don’t have anything against Subarus.”

Palin has in the past used that “hopey, changey” line at Tea Party events.

What happened to Mark Duren and his 10 year old daughter should not happen to ANYONE in a free society.  My problem with Palin is her duplicity.  It’s ok for her and her teabaggers to say and do what they want, but she’s calling for them to stop Obama supporters who have Obama stickers on their cars and call them out!  FREE SPEECH GOES BOTH WAYS IN OUR SOCIETY.

Update:  Fox News has a video of the event but I was hard pressed to find the reference to the bumper stickers.  We all know about Fox News’ censoring to make their people look good.

Tea Partiers & Conservatives: Where Were You For Eight Years Of Atrocities During The Bush Administration?

 

I saw this somewhere and decided to repost it.  It’s actually a set of questions  that many progressives have been asking pundits, right-wingers, tea partiers and more,  for some time now.  The author is unknown, but should be commended for compiling this.

You didn’t get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President.

You didn’t get mad when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate
energy policy.

You didn’t get mad when a covert CIA operative got outed.

You didn’t get mad when the Patriot Act got passed.

You didn’t get mad when we illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us.

You didn’t get mad when we spent over 600 billion(and counting) on said illegal war.

You didn’t get mad when over 10 billion dollars just disappeared in  Iraq.

You didn’t get mad when you found out we were torturing people.

You didn’t get mad when the government was illegally wiretapping Americans.

You didn’t get mad when we didn’t catch Bin Laden.

You didn’t get mad when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed.

You didn’t get mad when we let a major US city, New Orléans, drown.

You didn’t get mad when we gave a 900 billion tax break to the rich.

You didn’t get mad when the deficit hit the trillion-dollar mark.

You finally got mad when the government decided that people in America deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick.  Yes, illegal wars, lies, corruption, torture, stealing your tax dollars to make the rich richer, are all okay with you, but helping other Americans…oh hell no.
