Skip to comments.Palin Sources Claim that She was Troubled by John Birch Society's Sponsorship of CPAC
Posted on 01/08/2010 11:25:09 AM PST by Bigtigermike
Palin announced late Thursday that she would attend SRLC, joining Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee as announced speakers. Interestingly, Palin also announced on Thursday that she would not be speaking at CPAC, a gathering of conservatives in Washington in mid February -- a decision, according to those familiar with her thinking, due at least in part to the fact that the John Birch Society is one of the sponsors

*****These idiots don't get it tthat it's a good thing that She is not approved of by the "establishment" Sheesh!
I’d take the JBS endorsement over the RNC’s
Of course this is not a credible source. For one its from the Washington Post and even they put it as “according to those familiar with her thinking”.
In other words they used themselves as their own source because they think they are familiar with her thinking.
I doubt Sarah has a problem with the John Birch Society but there are other sponsors of CPAC that might give her pause.
“according to those familiar with her thinking...”
Sarah Palin can and does explain her own thinking as she chooses.
I didn’t even know there still was a John Birch Society.
have you read those comments.
I swear the left have lost their heads , comments like right winger hate the military and they never serve or freedom lovers of truth are happy Sarah is screwing in the knife to the GOP etc or even the pathetic attempt of excusing and making excuses for bozo saying there 57 states and by some on the right wing saying he might have confused wit 57 islamic states is racist.
The left just love to say racist this and racist that when one does not agree with them
How on earth can they say it is racist to mention there is 5is what maybe obama was reffering to.
They have lost the plot
Very well put... lefties are always “trying” to do our thinking for us, especially when it paints a picture more to their liking.
so Sarah is her own perosn and now tot he left it’s a bad thing, maybe we should all be like the far left fanatics which only see a letter after a name and then repeat those bumper stickers and of curse never back those comment sup with facts
She should have just told ‘em she’s allergic to RINOs
If Palin is more concerned with enticing the “establishment types”.....then she would be another Liberal RINO.
I hope this article is not true...I am disappointed that SarahPAC contributed money to Lindsey Graham
So what’s up with the John Birch Society these days? Seems like they’ve been keeping a low profile for some time, but lately I keep seeing their name pop up here and there. As I remember them from some years back, they never would have associated themselves with the mainstream political class, even if they were conservatives. In any case, I don’t see why Sarah Palin would have a problem with them, unless she is concerned that the media will try to typecast her as a conspiracy nut.
>The left just love to say racist this and racist that when one does not agree with them
And the ones who say “racist” the most? WHITE LIBERALS.
I “converse’ with these elitists’ almost everyday here in L.A. and when they pipe in that libtard talking point, I ask them one simple question ‘How many non-white friends do you have?..all I see are white people in your group.”
That stops them cold. L.A. is a segregated city and nthat’s how it is, no matter what the left spins.
She is not chasing the establishment.... CPAC is the establishment, it has been infiltrated with Romneybots and Lincoln log cabin members, also the head of CPAC had been trashing Sarah all last year.
If you haven’t heard, CPAC is now controlled by Romney-ites. Sarah made the right choice.
The left has one main tactic, co-opt conservative organizations. Send the message that smart conservatives want Romney, it’s only the un-educated tea party people that support Palin. You’ll hear it from now until 2012. They know they can beat Romney but are afraid of Sarah.
And the John Birch Society is irrelevant and not a player.
I call Shenanigans on this article! There really isn’t anything wrong with the JBS - it’s more libertarian and maybe there are some fringe members but you’ll find that in any group. At any rate a lot of their founding principles make sense.
This is just more proof of how incredibly aloof the elite media establishment is - just as they ‘analyzed’ why she stepped down as Governor... She isn’t attending CPAC because it’s run by an establishment crony who has done nothing but act like another corrupt inside-the-beltway snob who supports Romney & Specter, gets money for his endorsements, and disses Sarah when he gets the chance... I went to CPAC for the first time last year in hopes that Sarah may actually attend - this year I waited and figured I would only pay to go if she confirmed because I had a bad feeling about David Keene the more I read up on him and spoke to other people in the know... Thank you for saving me $$ Sarah Palin - I’ll contribute it to your PAC this month instead!
“A source close to the Palin camp says that request led to a decision to stay away from the upcoming CPAC conference, calling it a forum that will place “special interests over core beliefs” and “pocketbook over policy.
“That’s not what CPAC should be about and people are tiring,” the source said. “Palin is taking a stance against this just as she did in Alaska.”
