an article appearing in something called the Conservative Review, Amanda Carpenter called for the blackballing of Trump supporters including among others Chris Christie, Ben Carson, and of course Sarah Palin.
I am not precisely sure how the others on the list responded, but Sarah Palin....well Sarah Palin was not going to take this lying down.
Well at least her ghostwriter wasn't.
Here is just a portion:
Hooray For the Blacklist! Revelation "The Man" Was Either Lying Then or They're Lying Now
Yippee! We're blacklisted! Patriots who've had enough of Washington DC hypocrisy and t'aint gonna take it anymore are now officially "blacklisted" and "targeted" (*note: you are not allowed to use those politically incorrect words, you racist gun clingers; only the chosen ones are allowed).
(Yep, somebody has been hitting the sauce!)
The so-called "conservative" Professional Political Class has united against me and others for supporting our party's frontrunner and refusing to join their #NeverTrump campaign that will ultimately elect Hillary Clinton. The self-appointed kingmakers don't even hide the fact their efforts to destroy our winning candidate, while disrespecting the will of the people, ultimately bolsters the liberal left and fuels the insider's shared gravy train that they all suck from. (Gravy train suckers. Yuck!) Many have actually promised to stop at nothing to thwart the electorate's choice for a successful commonsense conservative who's in perfect position to bust up the Washington cabal and return our government back to We the People.
Want to join me on their blacklist? Sign here! Want a bumpersticker proclaiming it loud and proud? Make one, then send me one for my truck, eh? (That's our girl, never missing the chance to grift.)
In setting aside "real life" this morning, I took a minute to google news of the day and saw this blacklist. It immediately reminded me why millions of Americans across party lines are coalescing to reject Washington DC's politics-as-usual.
The political establishment collecting names to brand us blacklisted are exactly this - as spoken by William F. Buckley: "Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other views." Obviously the same is true with our own party's elitist political bullies who claim to be the only keepers of the conservative flame ignited by Buckley, Goldwater and Reagan.
This Primary election has sifted out the self-appointed movers and shakers in the GOP who are up to no good, thanks to Donald Trump's campaign exposing unprincipled politicos' true agenda. For as much as these politicians, pundits, consultants, and "conservative" media types rant, rave and pontificate, there's no denying they really don't care who wins elections as long as they keep their perks, titles, ratings, and invites to their pal's preachin'-to-the-choir venues. (Does anybody else smell the fire and brimstone?)
More Americans now find out these folks are really good at using and abusing their audiences and supporters. I know personally that when it benefited their elections, their fundraisers, their poll numbers, careers and connections, they sure agreed with my conservative politics. For nearly a decade they've requested my endorsement, my social media shout-outs, my pro bono consulting and advice, and as much in-person support as my time allowed me to give them. They were either lying then, or they're lying now about my judgment creds. (Or it could just be that you are now a has been, with no political clout or ability to draw enough attention to their cause or candidate to bother with anymore.) I've never asked any of them for anything in return (they can all testify to that) except their integrity to shine. (Does ANYBODY really buy that?) You'd think that at least in my respecting their right to endorse whichever Presidential candidate they choose, they'd reciprocate and simply respect my right to endorse a commonsense conservative Republican who just happens to not be top of their list.
The rant of course goes on and on during which she attacks a few former allies, who she feels are in agreement with this blackballing (Insert your favorite Glen Rice joke here.), and ends with a quote from Andrew Breitbart.
In between those two things is this rather bizarre outburst:
So the clever DC herd that's created the cutesie social media hashtag (because Twitter handles are just so doggone intimidating and powerful in battle, I guess?) are attempting to thwart the will of the people and the power of electorate with their #NeverTrump ammo. Well, kiddos, quick history lesson – our founders had their own hard copy kind of hashtag. It looked like #WeThePeople. And #WeThePeople are turning out by the millions, smashing voter participation records to fight against exactly the sort of hypocritical elitist games you are playing with our Republic. #WeThePeople will be in Cleveland this summer for the GOP Convention to make sure your haughtiness doesn't drive you to follow through on your asinine threats to do something untoward and silence the voice of #WeThePeople. True Conservatives and Independents who are in this for a reason, not a season... who don't look at elections as "just business"... who sacrifice precious time and resources away from our families and jobs in order to help others, well, we'll continue to stand united against the Left with our nominee, despite your ironclad commitment now to see him fall, which leads to Hillary's victory.
Hang on let me shovel my way out of this pile of putrid word salad.
Whew! Clearly somebody hit a nerve!
You know in many ways Sarah Palin's response is almost exactly what we would expect from Donald Trump. The only difference being that Trump favors Twitter while Palin likes to expose her idiocy on Facebook.
