Sarah Palin Haters Livid at Juneau Tourism and Little Piper's Lemonade Stand
Newsbusters ^ | May 11, 2009 | Warner Todd Huston

Posted on 05/11/2009 6:43:23 PM PDT by Mozilla

Tourism has recently been up a little in Juneau, Alaska. More folks than ever have been interested in taking bus tours through Alaska's capital city with a major attraction being the Alaska State House where Governor Sarah Palin goes about her daily work.

The bus tours are so popular that adorable little Piper has even set up a lemonade stand to sell tourists a glass of lemony goodness to quench their thirst.

And Palin haters in Alaska are livid. They want the bus tours stopped and little Piper's stand razed to the ground. Palin Derangement Syndrome (PDS) strikes again. It's an ugly, ugly thing, this PDS and one man in particular is leading the charge but curiously enough his long past of agitation and his criminal record don't quite seem to be making any of the stories in the Old Media.

Theodore "Chip" Thoma that has cavorted about the city erecting crude, hand-made signs shouting that the bus tours should be stopped. He is a vocal opponent of Governor Palin.

Thoma has a few criminal convictions for drunken driving as well as one for possession of cocaine.

Another insane attack on the wonderful Sarah Palin. Obama and the DNC as well as the media are out to destroy everything Palin. Palin is a threat so the white house through the liberal media are going to keep the pressure on Palin by doing anything they can to go after her. Even if it means harming the tourists to the capitol in Alaska. That Chip Thoma guy personally kicked down Piper's lemonade stand to boot.

Perhaps Piper can save up enough money from the lemonade stand to buy that guy an ‘S’ so that he has a normal name.

A real tough guy I see. If that was my daughter’s stand he would need a remove a boot from me procedure.

I love that little Piper. Quite a young entrepreneur!

Hope she keeps her lemonade stand.

Chip Thoma should be arrested before he hurts the little girl.

Chip Thoma should be arrested for his own safety...

However, he probably has nothing to fear - and that’s the problem.

I am scared at what I am becoming. I am so filled with hate these days. I so badly hate Obama and those who approve of the job he’s done. Each day that hate grows more and more.

The more I read, the more I hate. I am the point where I feel I would not mind seeing these people die a slow, tortureous, agonizing death. I really hate them. I know I have to get over this or God will punnish me for such hate and bad thoughts.

This animal Thoma is a career criminal and he’s out knocking down Piper Palins lemonade stand. God, please protect Gov. Palin and her family.

I think a personal protection order may be in order. Regardless of ones politics, this is unsocial behavior. Little Palin is more man than Chip will ever be.

We’re talking about going on another Alaskan cruise, and my daughters want to see Sarah Palin. They would be ecstatic over buying lemonade from Piper.

If we do go, I know we’ll be going by Palin’s house in Juneau.

I would work like a dog to elect Sarah Palin. I’ve worked on many campaigns over nearly 35 years, but she’s one candidate I would put my entire life on hold for . . .

Run, Sarah, run!

From right, Piper Palin, 8, the daughter of Gov. Sarah Palin, and Natalie Cosgrove, 8, sell lemonade to Andrea Watts and her mother, Pam, in front of the Governor's Mansion on Sunday. Other items for sale included diet ice tea and banana bread. Small boxes of raisins were free. (Al Grillo/AP)

I want to go visit Alaska too..I am familiar with those cruises, but they only give you a day to visit a certain area right..or is it better to just take a plane to Alaska and visit all the sights. Alaska is such a beautiful place to live, I am excited to one day going there and my dream is to meet Sarah Palin, I admire her so much. I would walk over hot coals to get her elected. I would campaign for her, raise money for her, whatever it took.

"Chip Thoma should be arrested before he hurts the little girl."

Thoma should be removed from the area and released in some remote part of Alaska.

I can't imagine Todd Palin's level of restraint. It would be hard enough living with his wife's enemies' antics, but NOBODY should mess with his kids.

Don't let yourself do it!

If you give in to the hate, you descend to their level.

Pity is good; you can pity them.
Loathing is OK too, as is good clean honest revulsion!

But don't become a hater, like the liberals are.

I’m remembering that picture of Sarah and Piper with the moose. Some “artist” in NYC was using the picture as a target board. He/she furnished a rifle and offered, for a price, to take pictures of Palin haters shooting at the “target”. That was fun, funny stuff for the Left.

If Palin haters would consider “shooting” at a picture of a little girl and her mother to be fun or funny, why wouldn’t they try to destroy the innocent pleasure of that little girl and the tourists who stopped by her refreshement stand?

This guy sincerely makes me wish I had the time and money to travel to Alaska. That and the rest of my life to spend in prison. Something I would gladly do to remove one such as him from this Earth.

Sarah Palin is an ordinary American who happens to have become a politician.

Any attack on her or her family is an attack on each of us.

The time for action is NOW. Sarah is on the move.Support he by joining her PAC. The left is scared to death of her and for good reason. She can defeat Obama by invigorating our demoralized country and bring much needed light into the darkness now being created to subjugate America.

Do it NOW!

I lived in Juneau for 24 years before Palin was ever thought of. I worked a few blocks from the mansion. There have always been lines and lines of tourist vehicles passing that place and the foot traffic in the summer is shoulder to shoulder. This is nothing new for the area. This man is a Nut plain and simple.

The cruise is a blast!!! First, everything is taken care of for you. You never have to worry about food, where to stay, etc.

My favorite part of the cruise; however, is the Alaskan scenery. We had a room with a balcony, and I loved just watching the mountains go by. We saw a multitude of waterfalls and glaciers. We didn’t do Glacier Bay, we cruised the Endicott Arm, and the water turns this emerald green when you get up there, and all the icebergs floating around. Absolutely stunning!

I highly recommend an Alaskan cruise. It was my dream vacation. It was our favorite family vacation ever. My teenage kids loved being on the ship, and my husband and I loved everything.

Yes. She will need to prove she is paying social security taxes & carrying sufficient worker’s comp insurance. Her tax returns will be audited every year.

Piper is all charisma & a bit of a hambone when there are cameras around. She seems to be very much her mommey’s daughter.

When a grown man has to stoop to harassing a little girl, he has pretty serious issues that require professional care.

AWESOME..Which cruise line do you go with? Norweigan? Carnival? I am only aware of the ones where you have to fly to Seattle in order to get to the cruise ship..but you also mentioned how your daughter wants to meet Sarah, how will that be possible..do you visit Juneau, Anchorage? I think you are only able to spend 1 day in each location right

We took Norwegian out of Seattle, and we went to Juneau, Ketchikan, Skagway, and Prince Rupert, Canada.

Yep only a day, but I think it’s a good first visit.

I really want to go back and go on a smaller boat (less fancy boat) with just my husband and cruise a lot of the smaller inlets. The kids wouldn’t like a smaller boat, so we’ll have to wait a few years.

from the article:

This story is yet more proof of the hate and underhandedness of the American left. They know they can’t beat their opponents politically, so they harass, accuse, attack and use the media as a lapdog to do so in order to drive opponents from politics. Instead of relying on truth and the strength of their arguments, the left resorts to thug tactics.

See how afraid they are of Sarah? Their fear doesn't even allow them to draw the line at attacking her children.

That Chip Thoma guy personally kicked down Piper's lemonade stand to boot.

Anti-capitalist. Child molesterer. What's not to love about democrats?

Bet Sarah's got a few guys looking into this cowboy's future. As she should.

In '012 Sarah kicks over Obammie's lemonade stand and the media will be screaming, "Pick on somebody your own size!"

Sarah puts the fear on lefties. When they see her photo, they cringe and start to fester and smoke like vampires exposed to the light of day.

Why can't people see this?

Sarah needs our support. NOW!
