The Lesson in the Betrayal of Sarah Palin

By Lloyd Marcus · January 21, 2013

Rush Limbaugh on his radio show discussed an article which stated that there is no respected voice in the national arena articulating Conservatism. Such an advocate for Conservatism is crucial to reversing the direction of America as Obama drives us toward socialism while low-info voters gleefully sing Kumbaya in the backseat.

Well excuse me for pointing out the obvious, but we had an extraordinary advocate for Conservatism and look what happened to her. Judas on our side betrayed her — sold her reputation for 30 seconds of fame and favor with the media.

Even now, folks on our side are still beating up on Sarah Palin saying — Palin has lost her appeal — Palin is unelectable — Palin wasn’t smart enough — Palin wasn’t prepared and etc. So, this is how we treat our heroes.

Many Democrat Party politicians/advocates are immoral, liars and cheats. And yet, they are treated like super-stars by the media. Democrats have the backs of their associates, no matter what. For example: Democrats never rebuked Clinton for receiving oral sex from an intern in the Oval Office. They simply launched a campaign claiming that any man in Clinton’s position would have reacted like him. Think about that folks, Democrats and the media lowered the standard of national leadership behavior to cover their guy.

We Conservatives act as if our representatives must be the reincarnation of Jesus Christ — perfect in every way. At a Conservative’s slightest misstep, Republicans/Conservatives trip over one another backing away from the individual in an effort to get out of the media and Democrat’s line of fire.

Clearly, advocates of Conservatism are expected to walk on water by both political parties.

Word on the political street is we need a respected advocate for Conservatism to reach low-info voters. While I do believe a new voice will emerge, I wonder who could be better than Sarah Palin? Will we betray our new Conservative hero?

Inevitably, Palin’s humanity was revealed; she was not perfect. But still, Palin is extraordinary and will be a tough act to follow.

Allow me to recap. Immediately following her amazing VP nomination acceptance speech, the media/the left went crazy consumed with hatred and a desperate desire to destroy her. Why? Palin was a beautiful, smart, articulate and strong woman who boldly touted traditional values and a love for God, family and country — all of which are anathemas to the left.

No tactic was too low to discredit Palin. Thus, the left even attacked Trig, Palin’s Down Syndrome child.

Women in my family parroted the media talking point that Palin was bad for women. I thought, “You idiots, Palin is the epitome of everything the left/Democrats claim to desire for women — successful inside and outside of the home.”

While governor of Alaska, the left tried to drown Palin in lawsuits. Palin resigned to save her state from the cost and aggravation. The left’s mantra was Palin is a quit-er and republicans/conservatives joined their chorus.

Another thing the left successfully did to discredit Palin was to brand her “stupid”. Who among us could survive every word out of our mouth being judged from a point of view that you are stupid? Meanwhile, Obama ran around saying America has 57 states and the media completely ignored this faux pas, along with several others by Obama.

Despite relentless attacks by hostel interviewers, in every TV interview, Palin always stood strong, boldly touting Conservatism. Man, you got to love this remarkable woman.

Also, completely ignored is Palin’s tremendous charisma which I witnessed first hand on numerous occasions. We launched one of our Tea Party Express national bus tours in Searchlight Nevada – a huge dust bowl. Palin was our keynote speaker. Twenty-five thousand patriots attended with many camping out the night before to reserve their spot. Through the windows of our Tea Party Express bus as we arrived, I watched seniors who parked a mile away using walkers to make their way to the event.

The admiration for Palin felt a little like the scene in the Bible in which a woman said if I can just touch the hem of His garment, I will be made whole. In all of my 400 tea parties and 9 tours across America, no one, I repeat, no one affected audiences like Sarah Palin.

When this new conservative voice emerges on the scene, will we stand behind our hero no matter what, barring something immoral or criminal? Or, will we expect our guy or gal to be the second coming of Jesus. Have we learned something from the Republican/Conservative betrayal of Palin and their passivity and culpability in the media’s viscous vile destruction of her image?

Sarah Palin, on behalf of We The People, I wish to thank you for your profile in courage, trumpeting Conservatism (God, family and country).

Of course liberals hate God and country!! If it isn’t obvious to you, let me explain it:  You promote stealing from the workers in this country, in order to pass the money out to those who will not work. You promote excessive taxation and slavery to the government through increasing the national debt with irresponsible spending. You liberals promote crime by trying to take away our God-given rights to self defense. You are trying to take away our freedom of speech, and freedom of religion by forcing people to support free contraception and forcing people to fund abortion causing drugs. You liberals also promote anti-Americanism in your foreign policies by supporting Islamic nations against Israel. So, don’t go off sounding so high and mighty. You do hate God, and by hating God, you liberals also betray America.

I think you’re half right and Limbaugh is half right too. Palin is great but when challenged she seems taken aback. She flounders as she tries to explain what she feels is obvious. To those not already converted, it doesn’t seem confident. Worse, it seems like something she learned in school. Reagan, when asked if a government doesn’t have a responsibility for the welfare of its citizens replied without one moment’s hesitation: “Governments don’t have citizens; citizens have governments.” He didn’t hem and haw and talk “compassionate conservatism.” He went to the basic flaw at the base of the question. Governments have subjects and a subject people has its sovereignty in the state. The people in the USA are sovereign and government is its servant, representative, the executor of its will. When we have a leader who can articulate like that, basic things, then we’ll have what Limbaugh is talking about. She’s great, I agree, but she’s not that person who can get people to see her point of view.

Reagan had a few years seniority on Palin. For this, alone, I would be willing to forgive some of her lack of knowledge/leadership. Just look at our current president if you want to see someone who was virtually, totally lacking in leadership when he started (and I have yet to see much of an improvement).

“I would be willing to forgive some of her lack of knowledge/leadership.”

You would, I would, but that’s precisely the point I was trying to make: she doesn’t speak well to the other side, the side that has to be convinced. Surely there must be someone. Jindal looks good.

You can’t compare her to Obama. Obama has the media, he is the expiation of the nation’s original sin, the dawning of the age of Aquarius, the final celebration of the Woodstuck Nation. It’s hard to compete with a myth.

BTW: When asked what she expected to do in Washington during the VP debate, she said she was looking forward to going to Capitol Hill and presiding over the Senate. Biden scoffed. A guy elected 6 times, who sat in the Senate for 40 years, didn’t notice that the guy who presided over that body was the VP. “The vice-president doesn’t have anything to do with the legislative branch,” he scoffed, “he’s in the executive branch.” She answered, “yes, the vice-president presides over the senate.” He laughed his silly laugh. 6 terms and… how do you explain that kind of stupidity or blindness. Did he spend any time there at all? Was his blood alcohol level above 3.0 all the time? And yet… and yet… she sounded more like the cheerleader than the quarterback, even the second-string quarterback. Merkel never sounded like that. Nor did Thatcher. Nor Meier. She’s great, she’s a great part of the team. But I don’t see a leader here.

“Obama was only a junior Senator but look at his academic accomplishments by comparison to Sarah.”

What academic accomplishments? Smoking dope and attending marxist rallies? Hell, the clown won’t even release his transcripts/records. Frankly, what I’ve seen coming out of Ivy League schools (such as Columbia) is less than impressive.

The man follows Keyensian economic theory as if it was God’s own word, yet this theory has been discredited every time it was attempted. He has never held a private sector job and you claim he’s qualified to make economic decisons? The guy couldn’t run a lemonade stand at a profit.
Obama can’t even string two coherent sentences together without his beloved teleprompter and you want to complain about Palin?
Take the blinders off, dude, the emperor has no clothes.

What bothered people most about Palin I think was that she truly was completely unqualified to be President. At best she was a fair governor of a minor state. That didn’t qualify her to be president in the event McCain died – at his age and with his medical history a distinct possibility.
Yes, Obama was only a junior Senator but look at his academic accomplishments by comparison to Sarah.

I wouldn’t want Sarah’s shaky hand anywhere near the nuclear button, neither do the vast majority of Americans. Palin will NEVER be president, not ever. Give up on her guys, she’s forever fated to be a presidential election footnote.

Adrien Nash,
“I wouldn’t want Sarah’s shaky hand anywhere near the nuclear button,”
Sarah Palin’s hands are the hands of a true-blue red-blooded American citizen, -a natural citizen as the Constitution requires of the presidency, while those of Obama are the hands of an ineligible administrative-policy citizen.  Get it through your skull that the Constitution is the supreme law of the land, and by it Obama is the greatest travesty against the office of the President in U.S. history because he was born without statutory citizenship, without derivative citizenship, without constitutional citizenship (14th Amendment), and without provisional citizenship.  His citizenship is merely the result of an interpretation by the Attorney General (in 1899) of the Supreme Court opinion regarding 14th Amendment citizenship in Wong Kim Ark vs the United States.  Eric Holder could change that interpretation overnight and declare that Obama is not and never has been a United States citizen, and is therefore usurping the office of the President.  Obama is not qualified to have his finger anywhere near the nuclear button because the only people that are allowed access and control over those weapons are natural born citizens of the United States, and Obama is not one.  He is a man without any natural citizenship in any nation because of the hybrid nature of his national origins.   see obama–nation dot com
