Professional hater Sarah Palin says "Fuck You" to Michael Moore, together with gun sights in his name, and Bristol Palin proudly celebrates her mother's statement on her blog and on Instagram - UPDATE: Sarah Palin delivers bizarre speech at "Iowa Freedom Summit"


By Patrick

I actually didn't plan to write another post about Sarah Palin very soon again, as I am really sick and tired writing about this disgusting woman, whose future in politics was decided long ago, when she quit as Governor and decided not to run for President in 2012. But here we go again, it's almost inevitable! Why? Because Sarah Palin is not a professional politician anymore, but she feels more and more comfortable in her role as political provocateur, and she goes even further: She has established her brand as a professional hater, and whoever is the "target" of her scorn, could be up for a pretty rough time.

Sarah Palin now plays the "I might run for President" game again, by saying yesterday that she is "of course interested" to run for President in 2016, a statement which was widely reported immediately. At the same time, virtually everybody knows that the last thing that Sarah Palin, the most divisive person in US politics, will ever accomplish these days is to win an election. And Sarah Palin and her team know this as well. However, what they also know is that there is no better way to get publicity and attention than to incite hate against the political enemy, which will bring lots of headlines, and will rally the base. It will most likely bring donations as well to SarahPAC, which is paying for her luxury travels, and God knows for what other things as well.

Nothing was ever more attractive for Sarah Palin than to whip up the hate against the other side, the perceived enemies, starting with her vicious personal attacks against Barack Obama right at the beginning of her Vice-Presidential campaign in October 2008. She instantly became famous and infamous at the same time by saying in early October 2008 that Obama "is not a man who sees America as you see it and how I see America", and that he is a person "who sees America it seems as being so imperfect that he’s palling around with terrorists."

Her very unique way of dividing America into good and evil did not help her chances for winning the 2008 election, but it surely helped her to establish her own brand.

For Sarah Palin, there never can be "bad PR." In Germany we have a saying which translates like this: "Once your reputation is ruined, you can do in life whatever you want." This absolutely applies to Sarah Palin. She just wants the headlines, the attention. Everything else is secondary.

The problem is that her vicious attacks can still bring people in real danger, and this is one of the reasons why it is still necessary to write about this horrific woman, who has no conscience.

As you have all seen yesterday, Sarah Palin proudly posed in Las Vegas for a photo giving a "Fuck You" to Michael Moore, which also included two crosshairs in Michael Moore's name:



There actually exists a second photo of this moment, which was taken by Sarah Palin's daughter Bristol, who published it on her public instagram account:



Bristol's comments about this unconscionable act by her mother is very telling:


Bristol's photo is pretty sharp, and when you enlarge it, you can clearly see Sarah Palin's signature, and the gun sights, the cross hairs:



But there is even more! While "some people" claim that Bristol Palin is super-private these days and does not want to be disturbed in her super-quiet private sphere at all, Bristol even proudly celebrated the statement by her mother on her very public, very own political attack-blog as well, and posts her photo again:


There she also posts the photo again:


So the Palins are clearly very, very proud of what they are doing, as usual.

So what if one whipped-up right-winger takes all this a bit too seriously and tries to take matters into his own hands by physically attacking Michael Moore, or even trying to shoot him? Doesn't Sarah Palin as well as her outspoken daughter Bristol think that gun sights in Michael Moore's name sends the "wrong message"...?

You only need to look at Michael Moore's facebook to discover that the hate against him is very, very strong - there are literally thousands of deeply hateful comments, just because Michael Moore refused to worship the US military:


I think that the Palins couldn't care less whether they even incite more hate towards Michael Moore, or whether they even send out a potentially deadly message.

They are far too interested in headlines, attention and luxury.

As Bristol Palin also proudly shows on her Instagram, the Palins still enjoy their private plane rides - yes, it's such a "fun trip to #vegas", isn't it:



So what is Palin doing now? After cleverly getting big headlines again, today she will attend the "Iowa Freedom Summit", which should rather be called the "Iowa Freedumb Wingnut Summit."

Yes, Sarah Palin is there, and the media already took note:


Some journalists snapped pictures of Sarah Palin in the lobby of the Marriott hotel on Friday, chatting away for example with Newt and Callista Gingrich:





So Sarah Palin desperately tries to stay relevant, and uses every trick in the book. She knows that ugly attacks against the political enemy always get the best response.

I actually planned to write a post about Joni Ernst, who is now starting to establish herself as "Sarah Palin 2.0." But even such a phony, flawed right-wing politician and Koch-sucker like Joni Ernst, who preaches water and drinks wine, seems to miss what made Sarah Palin famous: This special brand of nastiness.

Finally, I would like to remind our readers, especially our new readers, that the personality of Sarah Palin has already been exposed quite a long time again, by people who knew her very well.

For example in 2009, the Alaskan conservative publicist and radio presenter Dan Fagan, who was enraged about the spitefulness of Palin's autobiography "Going Rogue", published a remarkable piece, in which he named exactly what defines Sarah Palin: Her "dark soul":

Sarah Palin: A Dark Soul

Posted on 18 November 2009 10:16am

By Dan Fagan

Publisher

The Alaska Standard

I will not buy Sarah Palin’s new book because I believe the governor who quit to be a fundamentally dishonest person. Why support the work of someone you can’t trust?

I have read some excerpts from the book and it is clearly a work of vengeance, revenge, and pure meanness. Palin comes across as the rotten on the inside, faultfinding, petty teenage girl we all hated in high school. If you’ve seen the movie “Heathers” or “Mean Girls” you know what I am talking about.

Palin, when writing Rogue, set herself on a course of smallness, triviality, quibbling, sophistry nothingness, and worthlessness. From the excerpts I’ve read, it is hard to draw any other conclusion than Sarah Palin is small in stature, character, and integrity.

Yes I do believe Sarah Palin has a dark soul. A soul obsessed with her image. A soul focused on hurting others. Sarah Palin’s book reveals her as someone unwilling, unable, incapable of living a life of forgiveness. She is a grudge carrier. Settling scores drive her and she is hell bent on revenge, payback, getting even.

Her meanness comes through most clearly in her book when she attacks former legislative director, and former friend dating back to high school, John Bittney.

Palin describes Bittney in her book as someone who was slouching and had his shirt buttoned wrong and poking through his fly. Palin wrote Bittney was a “Blackberry games addict who couldn’t seem to keep lunch off his tie.”

What crudeness, heartlessness, and pure ugliness. Palin can cut to the quick with the best of them. She knows how to enrage her enemies with a cut to the bone insult. It’s one of the things she’s best at.

And you thought Palin laughing at Bob Lester’s vicious attacks on Lyda Green was an aberration. Plain and simple Sarah Palin wants to hurt those she has unforgivness in her heart toward, and she wants to hurt them badly.

Did you see the Oprah interview when she asked Palin about Levi? Palin answered by saying she would not talk about on him on national TV. She then immediately proceeds to slam Levi over and over calling him a porn star and making fun of his new ambition to be a movie actor. It was overwhelming evidence Palin cannot help herself. She has no self-control when it comes to letting things go. She must settle the score. She must. She Will!

Revenge has become the work and calling of her life. Maybe it always has been. It’s clearly what drives her now. Her cutthroat attacks on others will be her downfall. Her inability tocontrol her desire to hurt those who hurt her will end up in the end discrediting her as a leader, as a person.

It’s never too late to change. But time is running out on Palin’s political career. Her poll ratings drop every time she opens her spiteful mouth. Her book will not help.

Truer words have never been written by Sarah Palin, and what makes this piece especially relevant is the fact that Dan Fagan supported Sarah Palin's bid for Alaska Governor in 2006.

So what now? What will Sarah Palin's next desperate attempt to stay relevant be?

In any case, nobody else has developed the "art of dividing a nation" to such perfection like Sarah Palin.

This will be her greatest legacy, and future generations will scratch their heads why such an awful person was ever allowed to appear on the national political stage.

UPDATE:

We actually have a source at the "Iowa Freedom Summit", which is taking place right now, where the top-wingnuts of the nation explain to an audience of mainly older conservative white people how they want to run the USA into the ground again, just as George W. Bush did.

Watch the speeches live here on C-SPAN. Ted Cruz is talking, just now where I am writing this, and Sarah "Queen Esther" Palin will follow soon.

Here are the first photos from our source - Sarah Palin's new best friend, top-Republican Iowa operative Becky Beach, is there with her dog (click on photos to enlarge):




What we would like to know is: Will Becky Beach take this opportunity to talk to Sarah Palin about using Jill as a stepping stool for Trig...? The dog "Jill" was supplied by Becky Beach, who is the founder of the "Puppy Jake Foundation", which Sarah Palin promoted heavily on facebook and in the media.

+++

UPDATE 2:

Here we go - Sarah Palin met Becky Beach in Iowa today:


Sarah, a word of warning: Don't try to use Jake as a stepping stool! We understand that Jake might bite...!

UPDATE 3:

Even by her own standards, Sarah Palin delivered at totally bizarre speech today at the "Iowa Freedom Summit" - I uploaded one minute from the speech to youtube, please try to understand what she wants to say here, because I cannot figure it out:

January 19, 2015 - Martin Luther King Jr. Day


Martin Luther King speaking to an anti-Vietnam war rally at the University of Minnesota, 
St. Paul on April 27, 1967

By Patrick

If there is one American who impressed the world like no other in the 20th century, it is Martin Luther King. He embodied the spirit of a modern, liberal nation, and he stood for far more than just race equality.

So, to which extent has Martin Luther King succeeded? Tomorrow, there will be a federal national holiday named after him, so one should assume that everything is fine and dandy. However, we all know that this is not the case, and in the light of recent events, one could even say that things are moving backwards, as far as "race relations" are concerned. That is at least how things look like from the outside.

I would like to put up three very different clips regarding this topic: First, a trailer for the upcoming movie "Selma." The movie received rave reviews, but was snubbed for the Oscars, which came as a huge surprise, or even shock, for many.



Second, a brand-new (and slightly controversial) skit by SNL about MLK-day. I really enjoy the fact that SNL continues to make skits about "race relations" which might be considered slightly politically incorrect. I think that they usually hit the right tone, and I hope that they won't change.



Finally, one of the best speeches ever by Martin Luther King, a speech so true, so moving, that the tragedy of this terrible war in Vietnam, which changed America in a very unfortunate way, really becomes "alive" again. People should have listened to Martin Luther King back then. But they didn't, and one year later, he was dead.

The Palin-family on Instagram: Teaching swearwords to Trig (who can speak!), giving a $ 4,500 Christmas present to Tripp, showing off their cars and other stuff like luxury handbags. Millionaires having fun!

Bristol Palin, pretending to be poor (Radar Online, July 2014)

By Patrick

During the last months, there has been no lack of excitement with the Palin-family. Especially affairs such as the epic, drunken "Palin-brawl" from September 6, 2014 and the "lazy-dog-used-as-step-stool-affair" from January 2015 which made headlines across the nation, and beyond. In both instances, the Palins claimed to be the victims, as usual.

So it's very lucky that the Palin-family finally provides the world with unfiltered access to their real life - on Instagram, without the filter of the evil media. They do not use their real names there, but one of our readers had no trouble finding the accounts of Bristol and Willow Palin, which are both public accounts, open for anyone to look at them. Their screen names are very familiar, though. Bristol Palin uses "bsmp2", which stands for her full name, "Bristol Sheeran Marie Palin",  and Willow uses "wbf_".



The Palins are no strangers to social media. Bristol Palin herself had a Myspace-account several years ago, on which she posted already in 2007 potentially inconvenient messages like "Track told my parents that I am a stoner", "Mother thinks I am pregnant" or "I am a slut" (long before she got pregnant with Tripp). But Bristol Palin got a rare second chance, the chance to the "re-write" her own personal story by publishing an autobiography, in which she for example pretended that Levi Johnston stole her virginity, and by starring in a reality-series about herself and her private life called "Life's a Tripp", with no less than 14 episodes.

In addition, Sarah Palin is of course famous for having turned facebook into her very own propaganda machine. And Bristol also has her own blog, ghostwritten by Nancy French, in which "Bristol" frequently discussed current political issues.

But that Bristol "headed into the deep quicksand of sexual sin" with Levi Johnston, as she wrote in her autobiography, is already old news. Her son Tripp is now six years old, and he and Bristol now enjoy the good life, with a large house, big cars, expensive toys, and other stuff. They have become a family of millionaires. Times have changed.

On Instagram, Bristol loves to tell the world about it all. But let's start with an item which came as a surprise. First of all, I did not know that Trig, who has Down Syndrome, could actually talk. Second, I did not know that the family is teaching him swearwords.

Before we move on: The Palins, they surely are the victims here, just for the record. Definitely victims, no doubt... ;-)

Bristol posted a clip in which she asks Trig what his "favorite word" is - but watch for yourself:


Bristol finds it hilarious, judging by her reaction...

Screenshot from Instagram (click on pictures to enlarge):



Well, what can I say. I have no words, actually.

So Trig can say "Bullshit", but Sarah Palin actually wrote in her infamous "dog-step-stool" post that Trig has to "sign" the word "up"....?


But they are victims, surely! ;-)

Trig's "bullshit" clip also reminds us of Bristol Palin's highly embarrassing moment from 2012, from her reality show "Life's a Tripp":



It should be noted that Bristol Palin has no problems to publicly criticize the parenting of Wendy Davis or that of President Obama.

From the conservative blog "Twitchy", January 2014:


On her blog, Bristol Palin repeatedly attacked Wendy Davis.

January 22, 2014:


January 24, 2014:



The media responded and called Bristol Palin out - Los Angeles Times, January 2014:



Anyway, let's move on.

What did Tripp get for his 6th birthday at the end of December 2014? Look, a car for children, a "Polaris RZR 170" which costs about $ 4,500. That's apparently several times what Levi Johnston pays in child support per month.

Screenshot:


Bristol also made a little clip with Tripp, in which he makes "donuts on the lake" with the car.

Screenshot:



Websites name a price-tag of about $ 4,500 for the car, depending on the model:



Just a few days ago, Bristol presented her new shiny handbag - and no, it's definitely not a fake bag.

Take also a look at the hashtags:
























The fact that Bristol shows off her Louis Vuitton bag on Instagram is particularly ironic in light of the fact that she wrote in her autobiography (p. 125):

"Cindy McCain was walking with me and pulled me aside to talk privately. You can probably tell from television that she looks like a queen and holds herself like royalty. Her bags were so expensive. I've never seen people with so much Louis Vuitton luggage, so many cell phones, and so many constant helpers to do hair and makeup. When I saw their wealth, it was hard to imagine we'd have anything in common to talk about."

Bristol Palin also presents her large, luxurious house in Alaska, which we discussed in an earlier post from 2012, and which she now calls "my little tree fort":



Let's turn to Willow for a moment. What do you think about this "trig selfie"...?

Screenshot:



Willow Palin, who works as a hairdresser, is proud of her large car, and her "custom-made" rims - she is living the good life, like the rest of the family. I wonder why not more people become hairdressers, the job seems to pay incredibly well.




Naturally, Bristol has a big truck as well:



Several months ago, Willow presented "my parents new puppy", the dog "Jill Hadassah", who now became famous as Trig's step stool.

Screenshot:



Well, there is much more, of course - for example Willow posing with her brother Track. But what the heck is going on with Tracks right hand...? Is Track showing the "middle-finger" ALL the time, or just during drunken brawls...? 



On the Instagram account of a friend, we can see Track with a huge mustache, his "gangster-look", I suppose...



Back to Bristol Palin:

Bristol with "my boys"...wait, what???

So, Bristol, do you want to tell us that these are "your" boys? 

Well, we can all take a guess, can we. It is actually not a big secret in Alaska that Sarah Palin is not the biological mother of Trig. Especially in the higher political circles in Alaska, virtually everyone knows it, as we know through direct knowledge. 

We have posted a lot of links regarding Sarah's "pregnancy" with Trig also in the sidebar on the right.

Screenshot:



Also, curiously, Bristol has a large photo of Trig from his "graduation" in her house:



Oh look, a real gem: Tripp applying makeup to Sarah Palin's face. This green stuff really does not look healthy:



There is so much more, but finally, some family group photos, for example from Thanksgiving and Christmas:







There is so much we can learn on social media.

Good night, and good luck!
