Sarah Palin and the Star of David
All Voices ^ | June 2, 2011 | R.G. Yoho

Posted on 06/02/2011 12:36:42 PM PDT by Clintons-B-Gone

While former Alaska governor Sarah Palin has been traveling the county on her recent East Coast bus tour, she made an appearance in New York City. Naturally, the media wanted to largely focus on her meeting at a local pizza place with Donald Trump.

However, the real news has apparently been missed by everyone in the media.

I noticed it right away. She has worn it on other occasions as well. The media is useless.

Just so everyone knows she also wore one of those American-Israeli flag lapel pins the day before when she met Trup for pizza.

They were too busy making fun of her for eating pizza with a fork.

Personally I do not like candid photos of me eating. Few people look good eating.

I assume she is smart enough to know that if she was to pick up a piece of pizza with a long string of cheese hanging off it and it dripped down her chin, that would have been the photo of the day.

I used to have a gold star of David but gave it away to a Jewish friend of mine. I wore it a lot and people would ask me if I was Jewish. I would tell them , “no, but my savior is”. Gave me a “in” on sharing my faith with others.

I have been a pro shooter for nearly 30 years and the ONLY time I take a picture of some eating is when I want to make them look bad!

I eat pizza with a fork on occasion.

Yes, I know New Yorkers are pizza snobs for their style of pizza. Yes, I know that they like to fold the slice and eat it with their hands. That's one reason I use a fork - to drive them crazy.

I have never seen a bad picture of Palin. And God knows big media has been scouring the world to find one for years. She is extraordinarily photogenic.

that would have been the photo of the day.

ML/NJ,

Thanks for the heads-up about American-Israeli flag lapel pins.

And I agree completely that a lot of people in the public eye wouldn’t want to be photographed while eating. The comment from the photographer proved the point.

If there are two things I am an expert on, they're the Star of David, and eating pizza.

1) Sarah Palin make every head on the Upper West Side explode by wearing the symbol of the Jewish people and the Jewish State. Their silence - and believe me, silence comes hard to that crowd - speaks volumes.

2) I am very much a NY pizza snob. I love to eat pizza while I'm walking, with the slice folded neatly as I weave through the sidewalk crowds.

3) It **is** acceptable to eat pizza with a knife and fork IF the slice is very hot, or if the cheese is insufficiently congealed to allow for folding.

4) Out of towners do get cut some slack on these things, particularly if they're attractive women. ;)

>>I believe she had the Israeli flag in her office when governor.<<

I viewed Sarah as a politician when she was Governor. I would expect that every knowledgeable Governor in America would have ‘mementos’ signifying they support their contributors. If just one Jew made a significant contribution to her election, that would ‘buy’ a spot in her office for the Israeli flag.

Now, if she has a memento of Israel in her home then that would signify to me that she has a true love for Israel. Wearing the Star of David when she met with Trump is her way of saying thank you to her Jewish supporters, IMO.

My man, bravo!!! Go on long island where there is a pizza store, a Jewish deli, a German Deli and, a Chinese restaurant on every corner. Yummy, back to pizza!!! Every New Yorker knows to use a knife and fork on piping hot pizza right out of the oven. I guess Jon Stewart is just an elite New Yorker, because he knows not of what he utters about pizza!!! He is certainly not of the New York “Streets”!!!

And a beauty parlor, and a video store and a laundry mat or dry cleaner. If you are lucky, you also get a bakery and a pharmacy.

"I viewed Sarah as a politician when she was Governor. I would expect that every knowledgeable Governor in America would have ‘mementos’ signifying they support their contributors. If just one Jew made a significant contribution to her election, that would ‘buy’ a spot in her office for the Israeli flag."

As a "politician", Sarah could have had a Palestinian flag in her office instead, probably leading to bigger contributions since America's Jews tend for some incomprehensible reason to support only Democrats. Her office, her words, and her actions all hold together. She believes that the Jews are God's chosen people and that it is phenomenally stupid to oppose Israel. She believes that the terrorists who launch mortars and rockets at Israeli civilians on a daily basis are evil, and that supporting them is supporting evil. This is not like having a photo with a union boss on her wall; her life is filled with confirmations that her personal beliefs match her public persona. Even though there are a small number of issues on which I disagree with Gov. Palin, I find it reassuring that she is genuine about everything, both the areas on which we agree and our disagreements.

Do you think she is insincere about her claimed pro-life beliefs? About the Second Amendment? About her support for the military? About responsible government spending? About opposing corruption from both parties? About any significant issue? In all of these areas, we have specific, clear evidence that she means what she says, which is why the ruling elite from both parties hates her.

Now as far as insulting Sarah, you and “your people” whomever they might be, ml/nj, you need to realize this woman is a politician and she is going to make executive decisions according to the political climate. What is possible to accomplish and what is not in her political world depends on how many seats are supporting her, how many RINO’s there are and how many oppose her. She is not going to do anything to offend her supporters and she will do whatever she can to curry favor. If that includes putting an Israeli flag in her office to gain your support and that of “your people”, she will do so.

If saying this offends you, I’m sorry because I am as emotional as a fence post about this subject. I don’t try to curry favor with anyone except my wife. You don’t need my approval to post your opinions and I don’t feel I need yours. You can accept my opinion as it is or you can attempt to swing me over to your line of thinking.

First let me get this off my chest. I am not enamored with Sarah Palin. The same way I wasn’t enamored with George Bush or his wife. The Bush’s are an attractive and well mannered couple the same way the Palins are. They have polite children. Their family history is out in the open for all to see. So, from my middle class standards they are a suitable family to occupy the White House....until I get to examining the main issues which is are they the correct family to protect United States and preserve our Constitution? Will they steer enforcement of federal immigration laws in the direction that I want them to go or will they offer an amnesty plan to lawbreakers. The reason I use the word “family” is because I have been married for 35 years and I know that my wife’s opinion is an important factor when I make a decision the same way Laura’s “compassion towards Latinos” opinion was certainly a strong factor in why George was reluctant to close the borders. The primary question concerns overall qualifications. Is she the best of the best for America and the millions of unemployed people?

Now, I have voted for a lot of politicians in my life and not a single one has come through as they initially promised. So no, I don’t fully trust her or anyone else running for office. Life’s experiences have taught me not to trust them unless I wish to be disappointed.

Sorry but IMO all politicians must be money hungry whores to be effective. They spend more time trying to raise funds to be re-elected than they do making decisions on which way to vote. That is NOT a personal slur against her or any of the others personally. It is how our election system works. If you don’t have millions to buy advertising for the office then you will not be elected.

I have often eaten pizza with a fork. I have sometimes eaten hot sandwiches (such as reubens or even hamburgers) with a fork. This a.m. I was alternately eating mrs jimfree’s almond poppy seed muffins with a fork and with my hands. They were absolutely delicious either way.

How Much Does it Cost to Run for President?

Campaigning for president can be a very expensive proposition. Running a campaign to win a presidential primary can range in cost from $50 million US Dollars (USD) to over $100 million USD. By itself, this cost is already enormous. However, there’s even more that must be spent to run for president. Once the primaries are over and the nominees begin their campaigns to win the general election, an additional $75 million USD is typically spent.

Not many Jews in Alaska. Why do you think she had that flag in her office when she was governor? Supposedly Jews are giving money to politicians left and right (well mostly left) so how many other governors are you aware of who also displayed an Israeli flag in their office?

I don’t know for a fact but I would take a guess that Kirsten Gillibrand(D-NJ), James E. Risch (R-ID), Johnny Isakson (R-GA), Robert Menendez (D-NJ), Benjamin L. Cardin (D-MD), Tom Coburn (R-OK), Charles Schumer (D-NY), Bill Nelson (D-FL), Frank R. Lautenberg (D-NJ), Roger Wicker (R-MS), Dan Inouye (D-HI), Mike Johanns (R-NE), Daniel Akaka (D-HI), Mark Kirk (R-IL), Ron Wyden (D-OR), Richard Burr (R-NC), Joseph Lieberman (CT) and Mike Crapo (R-ID). and a bunch more all have their little mementos in plain sight. Gillibrand led the posse of 18 Senators in support of US pull-out from the anti-Semitic Durban III. Obama would not have OK’d that without pressure from a large group of heavyweights. I’m sure they have all been rewarded with nice mementos as a way of saying thanks.

During WWII, when the Nazi occupiers of Holland decreed that Rotterdam jews must wear the Star of David in order that they be more easily targeted for abuse, much of the population of the city - most of whom were not jews - turned out the next day defiantly sporting the “jewish” armbands.

Given the despicable position taken by the Obama administration with his “1967 borders” speech “demanding” that Israel submit to the Palestinian agenda clearly aimed at a modern day holocaust, Sarah Palin was only doing much the same thing - what we should all do - openly indicating a commitment of “never again.”

“To remain silent in the face of evil IS evil.”

No wonder Obama and his lick-spittle MSM supporters want Palin and the rest of us to shut up.
