|The Palin family playing "Eskimo Bingo."|
Todd is an Alaskan native and part Eskimo; my kids’ Yupik Eskimo heritage is a badge of honor, not a chip on their shoulder. (Eskimo?)
You’ll not see my kids falsely charging someone with racism just because they disagree with an opinion. (No they just call them "faggot.")
But liberals slap that racist label on me – and any other conservative – simply to stop debate on any issue. What a tactic! It immediately puts you on the defensive.
Racial tensions are mounting, and Americans are being divided. We don’t have “whites only” water fountains or “separate but equal” schools anymore, but, ironically, race relations in this country seemed to take a giant step backward under the presidency of Barack Obama. (Yes, because of the racists who came out of the woodwork in response to his candidacy. You know, that same ones that showed up at the McCain/Palin rallies.)
Slogans proclaiming “black lives matter” have clouded the truth that all lives matter. And, to show how crazy things are, both a college president and a Democrat politician have actually apologized for saying that “all lives matter,” as if that were somehow wrong. (They missed the point, as does Palin.)
But the fact is, we’re all created in God’s image. (The white Anglo-Saxon god that was inflicted on the native people in Alaska by the missionaries who punished them for speaking their own language and forcibly changed their names to ones plucked from the Bible? Does she mean THAT god?)
Not to nitpick, but I have known dozens and dozens of Alaska natives in my life, and not one of them ever called themselves an "Eskimo."
As for Palin being a racist well she was quoted as saying she would not hire any blacks when she became governor, did nothing to help the people of Emmonak despite public outrage, and during her 2008 campaign rallies whipped the racists into a frenzy by constantly attacking Barack Obama as "the other."
I would argue that Palin actually planted the racist seeds in 2008 that Donald Trump harvested to become president in 2016.
So is Sarah Palin a racist?
Is water wet?
