Sarah Palin: Obama Wants to Make White People Slaves (Most misleading headline of the decade?)
Religion Dispatches ^ | March 9, 2012 | Professor Anthea Butler

Posted on 03/09/2012 7:16:18 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Sarah Palin is back in the news again for all the wrong reasons. Last night on The Sean Hannity Show, she proclaimed that President Obama wants to take America back to the days before the Civil War. Yes, you read that correctly. The African-American president wants to make us slaves again. Sigh.

Palin’s over the top proclamation was coded in one of her specialty word salads that few can translate. Since I have been called the Palin Whisperer by one of my Twitter followers, let me give you the short version: Obama wants to make white people slaves!!!! In case you don’t want to watch the video, here’s the transcript:

PALIN: Well, what we can glean from this is an understanding of why we are all on the road that we are on and it’s based on what went into his thinking, being surrounded by radicals. He is bringing us back Sean to days that… you can harken back to days before the Civil War, when unfortunately too many Americans mistakenly believed that not all men were created equal. And it was the Civil War that began the codification of the truth here in America… yes, we are equal and we all have equal opportunities, not based on the color of your skin.

You have equal opportunities to work hard and to succeed and to embrace the opportunities, god given opportunities to develop resources and work extremely hard and as I say, to succeed.

Now, it has taken all these years for many Americans to understand that that gravity, that mistake, took place before the Civil War and why the Civil War had to really start changing America. What Barack Obama seems to want to do is go back to before those days when we were in different classes based on income, based on color of skin.

Why are we allowing our country to move backwards instead of moving forward with that understanding that as our charters of liberty spell out for us, we are all created equally.

Palin’s civil war screed was in the middle of a longer segment about the supposed smoking gun video from the late Andrew Breitbart, with then law student Barack Obama, introducing Prof. Derrick Bell at Harvard. Bell, a noted scholar on race who passed away recently, is being vilified by conservatives as one of the terrorist types, like Bill Ayers or Jeremiah Wright that the president had associations with. The video has been seen by the public before, and was shock-edited by Brietbart and his minions in much the same way that the Shirley Sherrod video was. The video is at best innocuous, but Palin, in her Fox News role as mean girl racist cheerleader, is still beating Breitbart’s fake drums of scandal even after his death.

Palin’s offensive word salad on Sean Hannity was a Tour de farce in her attempt to turn people away from the HBO movie Game Change which focuses in on the choice of Palin as the vice presidential candidate and the trouble that ensued from bringing her on the Republican Ticket. Palin has been in full-tilt mode, bringing out her supporters to condemn the movie, in an attempt to deflect the depiction of her performance as a troubled, unstable VP candidate. Palin’s obsession with President Obama’s vetting as a candidate only serves to put the spotlight back on how unprepared Palin was not only as a candidate, but to take the office of vice president.

Make no mistake Palin may not be running for president, but she is trying every way she knows how to get back into play. By dog whistling “race” through a convoluted reinterpretation of the president, Palin is tuning up her white-mother-of-the-nation racist rally-cry back in full-throated roar. Palin may confound the media, but her loyalists completely understand her scrambled message.

Palin is also teasing about a brokered convention, and being willing to serve. These are merely code words to try to rally her flagging base of supporters to give money to SarahPac. To push back on the HBO movie, SarahPac commissioned a video, “Game change we can believe in,” a highlight reel of Palin on the 2008 campaign trail. Of course, the Pac is fundraising on the movie, hoping to get $20.12 for the 2012 race.

While Rick Santorum has taken Palin’s 2008 role over as Super Christian out on the campaign trail (with songs being written about him, no less), Palin’s star is on the wane. Since proclaiming she would not run for president in 2012, Palin has been in political limbo. Her followers at Conservatives 4 Palin have waned, and she even accepted a speaking role at CPAC, a convention she turned down three years running. Palin’s glory days are in her rearview mirror, but if she wants to keep up, she needs a Game Change. Bumpits, high-heeled shoes, and a bad attitude just aren’t working for her like they used to.

In other words Butler, you could learn a lot from Governor Palin.

We can now add “tossing a mean salad” to Sarah’s long list of talents.

Yep. I read that book years ago, and it scared me so bad, I slept with the lights on for a month.

Black Liberation Theology is racist slavery or race elimination cloaked in faux Christianity. Barak the Zero went to this church for 20 years. In that time he did not seem to have a problem with it.

I kinda chuckle at her phrase “word salad” though.

Most liberals and perhaps even alot of conservaives aren’t bright enough to realize what she said. Its a slight variation of Abe Lincolns speech comments of moving to Russia where they make no pretense of liberty.

"Palin’s obsession with President Obama’s vetting as a candidate only serves to put the spotlight back on how unprepared Palin was not only as a candidate, but to take the office of vice president."

Huh, what? The fact that she was interested in actually finding out FACTS about the man who wanted to be President means she was 'obsessed'? Sounds like she was trying to act responsibly, to me, something the MSM never did, all during the 2008 Presidential campaign.

As far as her being 'prepared' as a candidate is concerned, just how many Veep candidates, are truly prepared. They have to hit the ground running, and play catch up with the Presidential candidate's campaign. Sarah did quite well, I think, bringing a lot more voters to McCain than he would have had without her.

Praising Allah for the gift of interpretation he has given Ms. Butler, so she can fill us stupid people in on the code words.
