Sarah Palin Endorses Abbott: ‘Good Enough For Ted Nugent, Good Enough For Me!’

Sarah Palin is trying to claw her way to relevancy by scratching out Wendy Davis and endorsing Greg Abbott in the Texas gubernatorial primaries. Mama Grizzly has entered the Lone Star gubernatorial race by jumping on Ted Nugent’s coattails.

Urging Republican primary voters to “check the box for another good conservative – Greg Abbott for Governor of Texas,” Palin, via Facebook, claimed that “Greg has overcome many personal obstacles and challenges, which have made him a believer in the power of liberty and the need to defend our freedoms from the overreach of an out-of-control federal government. If he is good enough for Ted Nugent, he is good enough for me!” [Bolding ours]

The failed former GOP vice presidential candidate and half-term Alaska governor ignored — or, rather, likely relished — the 65-year old rocker and NRA board member’s comments last month.

Ted Nugent is just this week getting slammed for his January comments at a Las Vegas gun expo. He called President Barack Obama “a communist-raised, communist-educated, communist-nurtured, subhuman mongrel.”

Yesterday, Wolf Blitzer went ballistic over the remarks — and, more so, over the fact that Abbott is campaigning with Nugent across Texas this week.

Rating Blitzer’s response to Nugent’s outrageous attack as “True,” Politifact yesterday explained and defended the CNN anchor’s comments:

“That’s what the Nazis called Jews to justify the genocide of the Jewish community,” Blitzer said in a Feb. 18, 2014, interview. “They called them untermenschen, subhuman mongrels. If you read some of the literature that the Nazis put out there, there is a long history of that specific phrase he used involving the president of the United States.”

Blitzer’s interview made waves through the political world, so we wanted to check his assertion about the words “subhuman mongrel.”

In his CNN interview, Blitzer cited the work of Nazi party official Julius Streicher. But our research shows Blitzer is correct well beyond an individual Nazi party official. The words subhuman and mongrel were used interchangably but generally had the same derogatory meaning.

David Myers, a historian at the University of California at Los Angeles, said Adolph Hitler used the word “untermensch” or subhuman in his book Mein Kampf in 1925.

“From that point forward, it was part of the Nazi lexicon,” Myers said. “That and ‘mischling’ or mongrel, were intoned with daily regularity by the Nazi propaganda machine.”

Of course, were anyone to attack Palin for endorsing Abbott and Nugent, she would scream about her “First Amendment liberties” being infringed, as the former chair of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, former Mayor of Wasilla, former “Miss Congeniality,” former sportscaster, former head of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, former star of “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” and former and current Fox News contributor, has done in the past — wholly misunderstanding the concept.

Perhaps ironically, Palin’s chances at the presidency ended forever on January 12, 2011, when she released a tone-deaf video response to the Arizona shooting that left Gabby Giffords critically wounded, six dead — including a nine-year old girl, three women in their seventies, and a federal judge — and a dozen others wounded.

In that video, you’ll remember, Palin used the anti-Semitic term, “blood libel.”

Now, she’s using a gun-slinging, homophobic, cowardly pig mass-murderer recently accused of using racist and possibly anti-Semitic comments and a threat of murder against the president of the United States of America, and racially-charged comments against Trayvon Martin, to shore up her own flailing political career.

Apparently, Palin has yet to learn her lesson.

Mama Grizzly has ALWAYS been willing — even anxious — to settle for "good enough" and has never set the bar very high. She represents the lowest common denominator in thought and morals. This just marks a new low for her "good enough."

Gary P February 20, 2014 at 4:46 pm

A democrat shouldn't talk about morals. It makes you look stupid and hypocritical.

maineiac14 February 20, 2014 at 8:06 pm

And you shouldn't talk at all because it makes you look stupid. oh wait, that's because you are.

Gary P February 20, 2014 at 4:44 pm

Nothing Ted Nugent said was incorrect. Barack Obama's parents were BOTH America hating COMMUNISTS, as were his white grandparents. Obama's grandfather actually worked for the Soviets against America. This is DOCUMENTED. And his grandfather had Frank Marshall Davis, a vicious anti-American COMMUNIST, mentor little Barry when he was a kid. Davis was so radical and anti-American he was kicked out of the NAACP in Chicago!
.
You idiots keep telling yourself Governor Palin is "irrelevant" f that helps you sleep at night!

Fact is, since 2008 her endorsement of candidates has been the ONLY one that's mattered. She's endorsed well over 100 candidates and 90% of them have won their elections. Mean while Barack Obama is political poison, with democrat candidates telling him to stay as far away from them as possible!

As for Wendy Davis, she is nothing but a pathetic publicity stunt that has gone on too long! She has a better chance of the Catholic Church making her their next Pope, as ever holding elected office in Texas again. There's a reason why this lying gold-digger didn't even bother to run for re-election to the Senate.

Texas hasn't elected a democrat to statewide office in over 20 years. Which is WHY Texas has become the most powerful state in the Union, number 2 economy, and about to be number 1. Texas was once run by racist, anti-American democrats. It was a horrific life. Texans will NEVER make that mistake again.

At this point Wendy Davis is nothing but an audition for NBC's democrat party hate site, MSNBC.

Meanwhile, Governor Palin will be making powerful endorsements all over the nation, as she did in 2010 and 2012, and elect even MORE real deal Conservative leaders.

BTW, out of 3 endorsements so far, one is a black man, the other a black woman, and of course, the third is our next Governor, Greg Abbott.

Mean while the party of the KKK [the democrat party] is floundering and on the verge of collapse, thanks to Obama and his radical anti-American policies.

You should do some research before you regurgitate some propaganda you heard on conservative outfits.

Gary P February 20, 2014 at 4:53 pm

BTW dumb-ass Gabby Giffords was shot by a DEMOCRAT: Jarred Lee Laughner. Laughner had stalked Congresswoman Giffords since 2007 BEFORE the Tea Party was created or anyone but the most politically astute had ever heard of Sarah Palin! [outside of Alaska]

DEMOCRAT Jarred Lee Laughner stalked Giffords and tried to kill her because she was a "blue dog" and not the typical, viciously Anti-American democrat. Laughner was spurred on by attacks on Giffords from democrat party hate sites like the Daily KOS. Marcos Maulitsas, KOS publisher, called Giffords "a traitor" and put a bull's-eye, and ACTUAL bull's-eye on her on his website.

Placing the blame on Governor Palin, and the Tea Party, for something done by a DEMOCRAT, is NOTHING SHORT OF BLOOD LIBEL.

You democrats are evil, and you breed evil. You wallow in hate and ignorance 24/7, and create monsters like Jarred Lee Laughner!

@ Gary P — You have my pity. You are obviously a deluded troll with psychological issues. I stand by my previous statements. It would be unkind of me to debate with someone so obviously handicapped, so I will consider this conversation closed.

WesleyNemes February 28, 2014 at 12:22 pm

Yes, I agree.
