Skip to comments.Sarah Palin Says She Would Order Waterboarding Of Terrorists ‘If I Were In Charge’

Sarah Palin really wooed her audience at the National Rifle Associations Stand and Fight Rally, held at the Lucas Oil Stadium last Saturday night.
The former Governor of Alaska claimed that Americans constitutional rights as formulated by the founding fathers are under attack, She added that policies such as gun-free zones are stupid on steroids.
Palin, 50, said that the framers of the constitution knew that if the Second Amendment went, then the rest of the constitution would not be far behind.
In her short speech, Palin ridiculed the argument that gun stores are responsible for crime, which she compared to blaming the messenger. She said if Gun stores are an accomplice to crime, then that fork made me fat.
Sarah Palin, was chosen to be the 2008 Republican Partys vice presidential nominee by John McCains advisors. Despite not winning the election, she still enjoys broad support among elements of the partys base. The proof of that was plain for all to see (and hear!) as her reception would have made any rock star envious.
After returning to Alaska in 2008, she quit her job, alleging frivolous ethics probes and the legal costs which would be involved in fighting the allegations. She wrote a successful book, called Going Rogue, which sold over two million copies, and joined Fox News as a political commentator in 2010.
Palin has now launched a new show called Amazing America, on the Sportsman Channel.
In addition to Palin, other 2016 GOP presidential hopefuls spoke, or appeared in videotaped messages that were shown at the conference.
Palin made no effort to hide her contempt for former New York City Mayor Michael I. Bloombergs gun control proposals. She also made fun of Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr.s recent testimony on Capitol Hill.
As for Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr.s suggestion to fire off shotgun blasts into the air to scare off would-be intruders, Palins scorn was palpable: Just aim up in the air that was his directive, his advice, she said. Well, fine, Joe Squirt Gun, if your rapist is a bird.
However, Palin saved her most controversial remarks to the end, when she referred to political correctness in handling the countrys adversaries instead of putting the fear of God in our enemies.
She said that if I were in charge a line that drew applause from the crowd they would know that waterboarding is how we baptize terrorists.
There is no question that the so called civilized measures used to control terrorism dont work, since the enemy has a different set of values.
Whatever may, or may not be Sarah Palins faults, political correctness certainly isnt one of them.
Just waiting for the liberals to hyperventilate and have their meltdowns over Sarah’s latest comments.
For someone they demonize, and marginalize as a half term governor and all that, they sure do pay lots of attention to everything she says and does.
I would have their fingernails pulled out with pliers.
Whether or not they know anything.
Look at comment boards on Yahoo or Reuters or NY Times. We are not alone.
Things are reaching a tipping point.
Sarah learned a lot about the Repub liberal stooges. The McCain experience and all the grief she took from the status-quo Repub establishment was a great teacher and example to conservative, patriotic Americans.
Another do-nothing Repub will lose it for us in 2016. Only conservatives, and their copy-cats, win under the Repub banner.
Well, if that’s her stand, she had better run for president. That’ll make the liberal’s scrum.
I wish I were there, WOW what a speech and LOL what she said about Biden, so true..like all liberals they have NO clue about guns..and as far as water boarding terrorists, Im all for that plus chopping off their fingers one by one til they spill the beans
Really love that gal. She has courage....unlike so many who are starting to reveal themselves.
you got that right. They are terrorists and they deserve nothing but death.
ALL terrorists deserve death, and to suffer while its being done
Doncha love Sarah’s turn of phrase???!! She’s turned them for quite some time now.
‘Well, fine, Joe Squirt Gun’ if your rapist is a bird.’
‘they will know that water-boarding is how we baptize terrorists.’
Clever, and sometimes mocking.
It seems impossible that Sarah writes - in the past, and present - every word of her speeches, but I’ve felt she probably does.
BUT - - - if not, who is it???
Sarah Palin for Waterboarding,then the really dumb liberals will call her a racist and prefer a less painful ordeal,like Chinese Water Torture!
I'm personally all out of patience with the concept of tolerating the Left side of the Bell curve. Waterboarding would be a start.
She is brilliant. She has had to be, to survive the constant attacks from the “progressives” in both parties.
What was amazing to me, was how the McCain team was quite willing to lose, as long as it was able (they thought) to discredit Sarah.
She learned a lot while the muzzled her with “loyalty to the campaign” while repeatedly betraying her.
More of a man than any occupant of the White House since Reagan.
Rand Slams Congress for Funding Egypt's Generals: 'How Does Your Conscience Feel Now?'Sen.

I’d order them racked, rat-caged, groin stuff, whatever it took to get results. Of course, that’s assuming that taking prisoners turned out to be necessary or even possible — because the best defense is a good offense.
Putin: "I just sent 10,000 forces to the Aleutian Islands to protect Russian speaking Eskimos...."
Palin: "all ports, tunnels, bridges, and airstrips are mined, arms issued to civilians, RESIST IN PLACE".
Obama: "I already gave you seven Arctic islands....how many more do you want...?
She’s 10 times the man Bambi wish he could be...
Palin doesn't make these speeches for free, you know. I don't know what she got from the NRA, but she's a much sought-after speaker and much sought-after speakers generally get paid quite well. BTW, I do think she's entitled to whatever she can get.
She’s 10 times the man, most Republicans are with the exception of a minor few such as Ted Cruz. I love those 2. Don’t you just love the phrase used by this author - “alleged frivolous lawsuits?” That made my blood boil!
Sarah I love you dear but please, WILL YOU RUN ALREADY? WE NEEDS YOU! AMERICA NEEDS YOU!!
Yeah but Clive Bundy is a racist.
I’ve always thought someone should make this announcement, plain and clear and without fear. Most of the country agrees with it.
Amen to that sister Sarah Barracuda!
Sarah Palin is not going to run for President.
Don’t ya’ get me started, Laz! I’m thinking about writing a poison pen letter like no other to Beck and Hannity about ‘growing up in the South’. Not history revised, I might add.

Controversial = whatever the left says is controversial.
She's slipping, I Would Order Waterboarding Of Every DemoRat in America.
Maybe that’s who she meant? LOL
Not a liberal but found it very crass since I am a confessional Lutheran who believes Baptism is a means of Grace which saves and provides forgivenss of sins.
Damn...a Real American, it’s a beautiful sight.
She might run for Senator...
As a Catholic I also believe that baptism is a holy sacrament. Dragging waterboarding into is profane.
As am I but I see the humor. Terrorists have a lot of sins to atone for. Libs believe that abortion is a sacrament.
If you announce early I'm behind you 100%.
But if you tease the GOP base for a year, fuggetaboutit, I'll already be on some other train.
Yahoo has the best commenters!! (sp?)
I have long thought it was a band of Freepers, but actually i think it’s an extremely young group of die hard Conservatives. Future Freepers.lol
Oh please. There are other types of baptism in the Bible (baptism of the Holy Ghost, etc) that the Catholic church completely ignores. So when a Catholic gets serious about what the Bible actually says about baptism instead of what some man made religion says, then MAYBE you might have a little credibility on the issue. Until then, lighten up.
Ted Kennedy. Winner of many a hard fought bottle. My he continue to rot(ferment) in Hell.
Ah bull pizzles!! We’ll draft her! Shanghai her! What ever it takes!
“Clive Bundys a racist’’. “I’m a racist/you’re a racist/wouldn’t you like to be a racist too?’’. And Al Sharpton is a paragon of equality and brotherly love. So what? That epithet has lost it’s sting. And I’m glad to see you’re not saying you’d like to ‘’hit’’ Mrs. Palin, Laz. There’s a good gentleman.
Just curious, does that include domestic terrorist as described by Harry Reid? I love Sarah, but she seemed conspicuously silent on the Bundy situation. Perhaps she didn’t want to add more controversy to the situation but trampling the Constitution is a big deal.
