Robin Abcarian: Sarah Palin has finally gone off the deep end (Marching orders have gone out)
The Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel / The Los Angeles Times ^ | July 13, 2014 | Robin Abcarian

Posted on 07/13/2014 1:57:35 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Sarah Palin has finally lost it.

In an essay on Breitbart.com, Palin demands the impeachment of President Barack Obama.

Her piece starts off loopy and devolves from there.

"Enough is enough of the years of abuse from this president," she begins. "His unsecured border crisis is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, 'no mas.'"

I'm sorry, what? Why the switch to espanol? Is she implying Obama is a wife beater? That America is a battered, Spanish-speaking esposa?

No idea, but by the end of her essay, I felt positively battered by her battiness.

She accuses the president of orchestrating illegal border crossings (a favorite canard of the loony right) and "obstructing any economic recovery" in order to provide "cheap foreign labor."

Disingenuously, this privileged celebrity — with her seven-figure cable and book contracts, her family sea plane, her boats and her multiple homes — describes herself as an "average" American.

"Have faith that average American workers — native-born and wonderful legal immigrants of all races, backgrounds, and political parties — do care because we're the ones getting screwed as we're forced to follow all our government's rules while others are not required to do so," she writes. "Many now feel like strangers in their own land." (If you are a resident of a border state, exposed to the region's centuries-old mix of cultures and language, you'd have to be oblivious to your surroundings to suddenly feel like a stranger in a strange land.)

I used to enjoy writing about Sarah Palin....

My wife still sells the heck out of her style of glasses to white, black Asian and Hispanic ladies. Explain that.

As long-time LA-area Freepers can attest, Robin Abcarian is a bona fide idiot.

If Sarah would run for president (she won’t), I’d vote for her.

Another sister wife of Mitt Romney speaks.

Has Romney ever apologized to the Palin family for his sick behavior in 2008?

In other words the left and the establishment refuses to hear the concerns and opinions of Americans and simply makes fun of them.

Same old, same old.

Aside from name-calling and snide remarks, has this Robin Acarian refuted a single one of Palin's impeachment charges?

A single one?

But, the important thing is, you exposed yourself to something other than the usual Liberal government-approved claptrap you fill your muddled brain with.

The fact that nothing took root is not reason to give up, though.

Keep reading. Some day, somehow, you can be freed from your self-imposed mental kennel.

It looks like the left is ready to engage Palin in a debate - instead of the usual skulking potshots from the peanut gallery.

She should take advantage of the opportunity.

That America is a battered, Spanish-speaking esposa?

The author inadvertently swerved dangerously close to the truth with that remark.

I think she might actually take a little time to rebut this toady, by publicly asking him, “Why are you defending this worthless excuse for a president? His utter disdain for America, the American people, our constitution, and our laws, has reached a point where we need to impeach, not just for high crimes and misdemeanors, but incompetence and malfeasance.

“He has surrounded himself with radicals who openly despise America, who do everything in their power to sour relations with our allies, while embracing our enemies, offering them aid, comfort and counsel. He arrogantly abuses his office in numerous ways, he bows before foreign tyrants, he opens our borders to a stampede of impoverished children despised and expelled by their own nations, accompanied with a huge flow of violent gangs, dangerous criminals, and a river of narcotics. Then he orders all of them sneaked into our towns and cities surreptitiously, for he shuns the light of truth and justice like a cockroach on the kitchen floor.

“His subordinates corrupt their offices, behaving like gangsters whose sole motivation is to unlawfully reward their friends while persecuting their enemies.

“And when anyone calls them on it, they scream “Racism!”, which they would do if caught robbing a bank while gunning down innocent people. As if “How dare you demand that we follow the rules? Anything we want is ours for the taking, and because we are the ‘elites’, we can do what we want to you disgusting peasants!

“So once again, I ask. Why are you defending this worthless excuse for a president? What is wrong with you? Are you corrupt yourself, or just simple minded. Are you like they are, filled to the brim with hate and greed of all that is precious and good?

“You should be ashamed of yourself. You and the rest of your lickspittle peers in the media. The public despises and distrusts you for good reason.”

So I guess then Washington lost it when he joined the Revolution? Lincoln when he wanted to preserve the Union? Wilson when he got tired of Germany’s submarine warfare and the Zimmerman Telegram? FDR for over reacting to Pearl Harbor? The only people who’ve lost it is the liberal media and our government all the way down to street level.

Sarah Palin states what millions of Americans believe and want and this idiot claims she has gone off the deep end?
No it is America that is going over the cliff due to the incompetent moron we have as President.
Unfortunately impeaching him gives us President Biden which is even more ridiculous.........

Ahhhhhh. I see what's going on. SOMEbody is jealous.

Keep writing, Robin. Someday you might be successful, too.

Although the success might come quicker if you wrote for an outfit that people actually read.

Just sayin'.

Palin writes one paragraph and the Marxist establishment has a collectivist explosion. They must be terrified it will catch on or that she could become a candidate.

Robin's armpit hair is all matted because Palin's column has generated 21,000 comments so far.

Robin probably hasn't had 21,000 people read her columns during her entire career.
