Sarah Palin’s Hateful Word Salad of the Day
Well, the Republican talking points on the release of Sgt. Bergdahl have obviously gone out; the entire right wing universe is now screaming in unison (as usual), and Sarah Palin joins the chorus with one of her trademark hateful word salads:
Commander-in-Chief’s Definition of “Honorable Service” Includes Anti-American Actions While in Uniform; He Just Destroyed Troop Morale
The Obama administration tells America this soldier served “with honor and distinction.” (weeklystandard.com)
No, Mr. President, a soldier expressing horrid anti-American beliefs - even boldly putting them in writing and unabashedly firing off his messages (nypost.com) while in uniform, just three days before he left his unit on foot - is not “honorable service.” Unless that is your standard.
Please use your White House Rose Garden to praise the truly honorable service of our good U.S. troops who were killed in their search for Sgt. Bergdahl (thedailybeast.com). Praise the soldiers who fought with everything they had to defeat Islamic terrorists, those whom you just freed from prison. Our men gave all. Our surviving combat vets will forever live with the effects of the missions they willingly engaged in to protect you, our country, and certainly their brothers and sisters who are proud to wear the uniform.
You blew it again, Barack Obama, by negotiating away any leverage against the bad guys as these bad guys - Osama Bin Laden’s partners in evil crime - joyfully celebrate their “win” in the deal you sealed.
- Sarah Palin
Notice how she parrots one of the now-standard talking points about the soldiers “who were killed in their search.”
Six US soldiers died in the search for Sgt. Bergdahl, and that’s a tragedy. But how many American soldiers died searching for nonexistent weapons of mass destruction, sent to their deaths for a lie?
These people are despicable.
