Palin Unleashes Unhinged Rant: It’s The GOP That’s Fighting For ‘Civil Rights For All Americans’

Published

on

Sarah Palin is furious, again, always, and just posted to Facebook (of course, as all highly respected world leaders do) an unhinged, crazed rant against ‘democrats.’

Sarah Palin is back in the news. The former Republican vice presidential nominee, former and half-term governor of Alaska, and former mayor of Wasilla took to Facebook Saturday upon learning that former Baltimore mayor and former and two term governor of Maryland Martin O’Malley is running for president.

Palin unleashed a 375 word crazed and unhinged rant, refusing to actually name O’Malley, aside from labeling him “another anti-freedom politician.” She also repeatedly sunk so low as to rail against the “democrat” party – refusing to even capitalize the letter D – while referring to her own party as “Republicans” – upper case R.

In her typical, incredibly immature manner, she attached these images to her Facebook post:

“Yet another anti-freedom politician jumps in the race today for POTUS. As cool as he is with his rock ‘n roll persona, this typical liberal’s erroneous grasp of our Bill of Rights merely continues the strange and disastrous agenda of Barack Obama. Good to know he doesn’t have much chance of winning,” Palin opined.

Ignoring the Republican clown car (actually, clown bus, given how many will be running) of 2016 presidential candidates, all almost Xerox copies of the other, Palin asked, “don’t you wonder if there are ANY good old fashioned Blue Dog democrats who can represent the left’s party in the 2016 race?”

Well, no, actually, Sarah, the left has little use for those conservative Blue Dog Democrats, as the entire nation overall, has moved more to the left, as several Gallup polls this week revealed.

“By now, most of those ol’ Reagan democrats have come to realize that it was the party of Lincoln and Reagan all these years fighting for and winning the abolishment of slavery, civil rights for all Americans, equal rights for women, free markets, individual liberty, constitutional protections, private sector job growth, and a sensible foreign policy rooted in peace through strength,” Palin claimed.

Perhaps someone should introduce the Alaska reality TV star to her own party. This year alone there are to date 697 bills at the state and national level related to the issue of abortion – and it’s all but guaranteed that the vast majority were filed by Republicans to curtail a woman’s right to choose. So much for “equal rights for women.”

Of course, the claim that it’s the Republican Party fighting for “civil rights for all Americans” must mean the LGBT people and women are not Americans, because the overwhelming focus from the Republican Party overall in recent years has been to fight against or reverse any civil rights advancements for LGBT people and women, from abortion and contraception to marriage, from equal pay to job protections. The very essence of the GOP is anti-women and anti-gay. It’s now in their DNA as much as being born female or LGBT is.

To prove just how “un-American” the “democrat party” is, Palin had to go all the way back to 2013 to dig up a story from a less-than-well-respected “news” outlet titled, “DOJ internal memo confirms Obama plan for gun confiscation.”

Please, Sarah, let us know when President Obama knocks on your door to take away your guns.

Palin, in her embarrassingly incoherent rant, concludes, “for as long as the far left retains power via their numbers, the extent that they are willing to go to trample our Bill of Rights only grows.”

Perhaps Palin has a different Bill of Rights than you and I?

Gryphen at The Immortal Minority says, “my takeaway from this, beyond my abject surprise at how agitated O’Malley’s announcement made Palin, is that she is losing her shit over the realization that the Republicans simply do NOT have anybody who can really take Hillary on.” 

As for Palin’s attack on Martin O’Malley?

He seems just fine with it:

Highland Park Shooting Deaths Include Both Parents of Two Year Old Found at Scene of July 4th Massacre

Published

on

On Twitter Sunday afternoon in the aftermath of the July 4th Highland Park mass shooting a photo of a young boy appeared in several tweets. He was described as lost, good samaritans assumed he had become separated from his parents in the mayhem of the massacre, and people were trying to reunite him with his family.

CBS Chicago reporter Marissa Parra now reveals the boy’s name is Aiden, but he won’t be reunited with his parents: both were shot dead by the Highland Park gunman.

“Kevin McCarthy, 37, and Irina McCarthy, 35, were among the seven people [who] were killed during the mass shooting,” CBS Chicago reports.

“We took him to safety under tragic circumstances, came together to locate his grandparents, and prayed for the safety of his family,” reads the story on a GoFundMe page hoping to raise money for Aiden.

“Sadly, I need to share his name…Aiden McCarthy. And he needs more of our help,” it adds. “At two years old, Aiden is left in the unthinkable position; to grow up without his parents,” it adds. “Aiden will be cared for by his loving grandparents, Misha and Nina Levberg, and he will have a long road ahead to heal, find stability, and ultimately navigate life as an orphan. He is surrounded by a community of friends and extended family that will embrace him with love, and any means available to ensure he has everything he needs as he grows.”

‘Invasion’: Texas Lt. Gov. Likens Border Crossings to Attack on Pearl Harbor – ‘These People Are a Danger to America’

Published

on

Lt. Governor Dan Patrick, a far-right Republican, is comparing migrants crossing the border into Texas to Japan’s 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor that killed 2335 people. He is calling it an “invasion” and says that gives the state the right to “put hands on people.”

Patrick, who because of Texas’ unique structure is more powerful than the governor, told Fox News on Tuesday, “we are being invaded, and if we’re being invaded under the constitution I think that gives us the power to put hands on people and send them back. Put hands on people and send them back,” he said repeatedly.

“These people are a danger to America,” Patrick said in a rant. It was unclear if he was referring to migrants or President Joe Biden and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

The Lt. Governor, who has hawked the racist “great replacement theoryrepeatedly, and used the term “invasionrepeatedly, told Fox News that Texas is now spending $4 billion annually on the border, while Texas National Guardsmen and Texas Rangers complain of being called up to serve, having to abandon their regular jobs, for no apparent reason.

“This is the biggest danger we have, to your family,” Patrick says of the fentanyl crossing the border. “It’s all on Biden,” he claimed.

Last week Texas Governor Greg Abbott drew extensive criticism for using the deaths of more than 50 migrants packed into an 18-wheel tractor-trailer as a political opportunity to attack President Biden. Even some conservatives attacked Abbott for his inhumane remarks..

7th Victim of July 4th Mass Shooting Dies

Published

on

Seven people have now died as a result of a gunman opening fire from a rooftop into an Independence Day parade in Highland Park, Illinois.

The latest victim succumbed to their injuries Tuesday afternoon, NBC 5 Chicago reported. Authorities have not identified all the victims, but have said five of those who died were adults. Another 46 people were wounded.

Police on Tuesday announced that the shooter fired at least 70 rounds into the crowd, using a “high-powered rifle” that is “similar” to a AR-15. They also revealed the suspected gunman planned the attack for weeks, purchased his weapons legally, disguised himself by wearing women’s attire to “conceal his facial tattoos and  his identity,” and to “help him during the escape.” He then walked to his mother’s house after the shooting.

Law enforcement Monday evening arrested Robert Crimo, who they say is a “person of interest,” but he has not been charged.

“There are no words for the kind of monster who lies in wait and fires into a crowd of families with children celebrating a holiday with their community,” Illinois Democratic Governor J.B. Pritzker said in a statement. “There are no words for the kind of evil that robs our neighbors of their hopes, their dreams, their futures. There are no words I can offer to lift the pain of those they leave behind. Please know that our state grieves with you, that MK and I grieve with you.”
