Sarah Palin Parody Mistaken for Real News (That She Said Attack Czech Republic Over Boston)
Newsmax ^ | Tuesday, 23 Apr 2013 | Bill Hoffman

Sarah Palin has said many controversial things in her life — but did John McCain’s running mate really call for the invasion of the Czech Republic?

No, but a leading eastern European weekly wrote that she did — mistaking a satirical article written about Palin as fact.

“Let’s burn Prague: Sarah Palin Calls for the Invasion of the Czech Republic” screamed a headline in Wprost, one of Poland’s top news publications.

Wprost later yanked the article from its website after readers began questioning its authenticity on Facebook, the journalism blog JimRomenesko reported.

The parody, originally posted on The Daily Currant — which clearly bills itself as “the Global Satirical Newspaper of Record — begins:

“Sarah Palin called for the invasion of the Czech Republic today in response to the recent terrorist attacks in Boston.”

It claimed Palin had given an interview on Fox News in which she confused Chechnya with the Czech Republic and called for the bombing of Pakistan, Iran, and many parts between.

“I betcha I speak for a lot of Americans when I say I want to go over there right now and start teaching those folks a lesson. And let's not stop at the Czech Republic, let's go after all Arab countries.

Just when you thought the commies couldn’t possibly find a way to pin the Boston bombing on Sarah Palin...

Most progressives (neo communist liberals) also believed Sarah said she could see Russia from her porch....so this is not surprising....

What’s more, some of these hyperbolic attempts at satire and outrage result in genuine riots in the misinformed muddled east.

A woman at some left leaning academic center wrote of US foreign policy raping these countries’ sovereignty and it was reported over there as genuine rapes of the local women.

Perception is truth, as the Left loves to say (including Obama).

They know what they do when they claim that Sarah Palin urges for the bombing of Pakistan and the Czech Republic.

Low Information Simpletons.....

Her exact quote is that from certain islands in the bering sea you can literally see russian teritory as the distance is about 40-30 miles....

Of course SNL mocked this and twisted it and all the dummies soon thought Tina Fey = Sarah Palin....

What is worse is that people "supposedly" on her on side either agreed with it, nodded their heads, or said nothing!

Sarah has made enemies of the GOP too and the establishment was/is in no rush to her aid, and they count on the general stupidity of the electorate.

I am not the least bit surprised. We have to get over the perception that LIVs suffer only from the idiot gene. These people are not fixable and are extremely dangerous.

Name one. "Death panels?" Proven true. "I can see Russia from my porch?" 'Actress' Tina Fey on Saturday Night Live parodying Gov. Palin. What?

Controversial does not mean false. You can say something controversial that is 100%. Often they are the most controversial.

It’s actually much closer than that.

Sarah was referring to the Diomede Islands in the Bering Sea.

Little Diomede is Alaskan, US territory. Less than 3 miles away is Big Diomede which is Russian territory.

And the International Date Line runs between them so it’s always tomorrow there.

I still have to set brilliant in their own mind leftist straight about the Bering Straits.

It amazes me when people try to make her out to be a dummy by displaying their own ignorance.

YES VIRGINIA, YOU CAN SEE RUSSIA FROM ALASKA!

Years from now we’re going to run across Palin haters who will claim and believe that Palin actually said this. Some of them will insist they themselves heard her say it.

Now L.I.V.s will be parroting this bilge for the next decade.

And it will be fun to shoot them down each and every time. Its really hilarious for them to proclaim Palin "dumb" for saying something she didnt say. And for the thousandth time.

Libtards think Sarah Palin is a retard. What kind of retard becomes multi-millionaire, with millions of fans, and able to sway elections?

Palin is laughing all the way to the bank with all this publicity.
