She has also posted a most amazing map of the US to show which states are being targeted by her eponymous political action committee in the upcoming elections. And wouldn’t you know, she has used rifle sights to point them out to us.
Like, hmm. Love that gun imagery. Yup, guns are the solution to all our problems, especially the problem of losing a fair election, losing the majority in Congress, and then being unable to coerce the majority to let you make all the decisions.
Advocating violence against whoever you disagree with… If push comes to shove, is she going to claim that illiteracy kept her from knowing what her underlings were posting on her sites?
I am only asking the question. Why hasn’t she responded?
Remember when Pat Robertson declared that Hurricane Katrina was God punishing New Orleans for being sinful? Remember when he said that the great tsunami was God punishing Thailand, Indonesia, etc, killing millions of people because they weren’t born Christian? Remember after the Haiti earthquake he announced on television that God was punishing Haitians for their ancestors having made a “pact with the devil” to free them from slavery, a combination of good old right wing historical revisionism, racism, and Christianizing?
Well, it’s clear to me. The winter storm of the century has hit Washington DC, and God is punishing Congress for listening to lobbyists and the assholes on C Street and failing to pass meaningful health care and economic reform.
The more we read about the shadowy “C-Street” religious group, the more questions that are raised.
Rachel Maddow did an interesting interview with an expert on the group, a non-profit that provides cheap rent for religiously like-minded Congressmen, prayer breakfasts, “counseling” for members to assuage their guilty consciences after straying from their marriage vows, and above all, secrecy. Lots of secrecy.
The group is models itself on the Mafia, or on dictators like Pol Pot, Stalin, and Mao. It apparently on a mission to form an international alliance of Old White Christian Men in Power, to turn the world into a neat Christian theocracy where everything is black and white. Of course “rules” only apply to other people.
Members of the group apparently have had no qualms about visiting to meet with leaders of other countries to missionize on the taxpayer’s dollar.
Mark Sanford was a member of this group. He spoke of going abroad with other men recreationally, without his wife, to “blow off steam”. He says that while there he had “inappropriate” relationships with other women besides his Argentine paramour, although he claims he never did anything more serious than “dancing”.
Come on, guys. Did the taxpayers pay for Mark Sanford and other politicians to have international sexual tourism and missionizing trips?
It looks like the keystone kops running the election process in the state of Alaska stole it.
Now, after the results of the last election (clearly tampered with in several states) and the Republican voter suppression in the process of happening, I am not firmly convinced that there was not a “Diebold Effect” that Obama had to overcome by performing even better than predicted. But considering that the group that was most underrepresented in the polls—younger voters—is also his strongest supporter, this was possible.
The issue is that in order to steal an election so that it stays stolen, you have to make the results appear plausible. Irregularities stick out like a sore thumb. In the last two elections, there were widespread irregularities in Ohio, where Democratic precincts “voted” 100% (or even higher) Republican and Florida had to disenfranchise hundreds of thousands of minority voters in order to get the results they wanted. These are just examples. The issue is that the losing candidates and their party (the Democratic party) decided not to make a stink, to be “conciliatory”, and the mainstream media decided to suppress it, although it was a fascinating read.
By tampering with the programs of voting machines or optical scanners, you can shave enough votes to have an effect in a close election, and it’s hard for anybody to be the wiser.
But in this election, the polls pretty much agreed with the results. So if that happened, it wasn’t enough to affect the result, and as yet we do not see irregularities.
Except in Alaska, where numerous precincts voted more than 100%, vote totals are way down from the previous election, even thought there was lots of enthusiasm for all races in the state, and the convicted felon Ted Stevens who looked like he was going lose big instead won big.
It was part of the plan for Stevens to win, then resign. Palin would run for his seat in the Senate. But that wouldn’t work out if his opponent failed.
How many Wasilla Faith Warriors (people from Palin’s apocalyptic cult—which has declared its intention of infiltrating the government and taking control from the godless) are managing local elections? Remember, these are people with such an intense faith in the Bible that they don’t see anything else as important. How else could she have no knowledge that Africa is not a country? She has tried to blame the release of this information by claiming that the people who said it are “small-minded and bitter”. Yes, bitter at having to work with her and her nasty personality. But she did not deny that she believed Africa was a country. She thought the question was unfair.
Context: When South Africa came up in discussion, she thought they were talking about the southern part of the country of Africa…
And in case you missed it, she has no understanding of science, either. She believes that dinosaurs walked the earth with humans 6000 years ago.
But getting back to the Alaska “election results”, it is incompetent people like her that would pull such a blatantly transparent election theft, people she has undoubtedly appointed at all levels, also those who have been working to get themselves elected locally. They think God wants them to win by any means. No laws apply to them. The only thing that matters is not getting caught.
They just couldn’t figure out how to make it look like it was a fair election. They didn’t think it mattered, because these are people who do not see this country as you and I do, to steal a quote from Sarah. And they just can’t imagine how people like us think.
She’s right. I’m not, and that makes me one of the “godless” that her prayer warriors is planning on looting and pillaging when they take over the country prior to bringing on Armageddon.
Ecumenicism is a game they play. They want you to think you have something in common with them. Do you believe the world is beset by witchcraft and demons? Do you believe in praying for the deaths of people? Do you think it’s a good idea to bring on the End Times so you can get raptured right up into heaven?
She is a dominionist, which means she supports making the US a theocracy run by members of her cult. The movement to infiltrate the government at all levels is called New Apostolic Reformation. Check them out.
Sarah Palin calls Hugo Chavez a “dictator” as part of her campaign screed (which he may be, but that’s beside the point, especially since she doesn’t seem to have a clear idea of the meaning of her words.like.ever). He is now calling her a “confused beauty queen,” and says, “The poor thing, you just feel sorry for her.”
Sarah, you got owned. Out of the kitchen with you.
I might be feeling sorry for her too if I was a foreigner abroad who is not necessarily an ally, watching her try to destroy the very fabric of our democracy right here at home.
Just what we need, a Vice President who gets treated like the bimbo she is by foreign leaders. Imagine if she was trying to go on one of those diplomatic trips that Vice Presidents seem to go on so often. But she’d have to have a lot of handlers to keep her from talking and embarrassing us all…
Contratulations to Bruce Wilson for a scary in-depth piece at the Huffington Post about Sarah Palin’s associations with witchhunters, “spiritual warfare”, Christian nationalism, and The Global Apostolic Prayer Network, which claims to be responsible for the death of Mother Teresa through prayer.
These are one scary bunch. They believe that to bring about the End Times, Bible-believing Christian warriors (hint: that’s not you) will have to cleanse the world of evil (we’re both probably in this group) through violent means. They see the world as full of demonic possession and witchcraft, and they’re looking forward to a witch hunt something like the one in Salem, but on a massive scale—only because there are so many witches in need of eradication, of course.
This is the woman the Republican Party is looking forward to nominating for President in 2012. God has chosen her for this path, and supports her in everything she does, you know, just as God chose Michele Bachman, who now looks like she will be defeated, thanks to her support of Congressional witchhunts. Too bad, Michele, looks like God must have changed his mind.
Just a sample, one of many videos in the article.
Where is the media on this? I am sure that it would be fair to say that Sarah Palin does not see this country as you and I do, to paraphrase her own words. These religious whackos do not think you and I are part of their god’s plan, why do Americans pretend that all religious belief is created equal, and she is one of them?
And now, just for fun, a video of Sarah Palin saying that Bill Ayers is a terrorist, while she “doesn’t know” if people who bomb abortion clinics and murder doctors and workers are terrorists.
