Palin insults our troops by comparing Andrew Breitbart to them




From Breitbart.com

There is a new street art poster that’s being emailed around and will no doubt eventually be spotted on a street corner near you. It’s a gritty black and white image of Andrew Breitbart looking both battle-worn and ever vigilant with the caption: “BREITBART IS HERE.”

Those three words express the instant connection many of us feel for our fallen friend. They express our identification with him, and our need to continue his fight for the good of our republic.

With the death of Breitbart, the conservative movement didn’t just lose a General – we lost an entire Special Forces Division. But he didn’t leave us without the tools and the knowledge we need to fight. This website – Breitbart 2.0 – is the culmination of his study of the technology and aesthetics of new media. The team Breitbart assembled under the leadership of Steve Bannon, Larry Solov, and Joel Pollak will advance his mission with courage and integrity.

Breitbart’s most immediate mission was the belated vetting of Barack Obama. This obviously is an issue very near and dear to my heart.

During the ’08 campaign, the same media that reported breathlessly about an old used tanning bed I purchased to get some sun during the dark Alaskan winter, couldn’t be bothered to investigate Barack Obama’s associations, statements or even his voting record as a state senator. Suntans and what I wore on the campaign trail were more important than Obama’s political background. Unbelievable.

But when you come to think of it, the media didn’t investigate either of our actual political records very closely.

Barack Obama and I both served in political office in states with a serious corruption problem. Though there is a big difference between serving as the CEO of a city, then a state, and regulating domestic energy resources, and being a liberal Community Organizer, bear with me on the comparison. The difference between my record and Barack Obama’s is that I fought the corrupt political machine my entire career (and I have twenty years of scars to prove it) on the local, state, and national level. But Obama didn’t fight the corruption he encountered. He went along with it to advance his career. Graft, cronyism, and quid pro quo are the methods of the Chicago political machine from which he emerged.

You would think the media – those watchdogs of the public trust – would be interested in this. But they refused to vet Barack Obama. With tingles up their legs, they shielded him.

If the media had done their job of vetting him, we wouldn’t have been shocked that within days after Obama’s election, his close political associate Rod Blagojevich was caught trying to sell Obama’s vacant Senate seat.

If the media had done their job of vetting him, we wouldn’t be astonished to see all the billion dollar green energy kickbacks going to his campaign cronies as the nation heads towards bankruptcy.

If the media had done their job of vetting him, we wouldn’t be surprised that Obama brought these same Chicago “pay-to-play” practices to the White House.

This corruption was entirely predictable. But the mainstream media, who work under our Constitutional right of freedom of the press which our sons and daughters fight in war zones today to protect, dropped the ball and failed America by refusing to vet their chosen candidate.

So, as Breitbart declared in his last CPAC speech, we – the everyday patriotic citizens of the United States – will do the vetting the media refused to do.

This is a first step. Ultimately, Breitbart’s goal was to expose what he called the corrupt Democrat Media Complex. He wanted to break it up because he understood how the left uses its dominance of the mainstream media and pop culture to advance its objectives and marginalize its political foes.

Standing up and defending those who are being unfairly targeted and maligned was also the mission. Is it any wonder Breitbart titled his autobiography “Righteous Indignation” when you consider his deep-seated sense of justice and fair play? He was on the side of the little guy and ready to run to the aid of those who needed it. He possessed that old fashioned virtue of courage, compassion, and decency that we once called chivalry. He inspired that in others.

When you’re in the political arena serving for the right reasons and taking flak from all sides, there is nothing more discouraging than when your fellow conservatives sit on their thumbs or worse yet, join in the attacks. Breitbart understood this because he experienced it himself at times, so he was determined to stand by others in need.

He was a genius at new media, but his real gift was that he was fearless at a time when too many people are afraid and are retreating. Courage inspires courage. Fearlessness emboldens others to follow your lead.

Lately conservatives are picking up the mantle from Breitbart’s absence on the air and in places like Twitter. Watch for tweet jousts with liberal outlets like the weird and creepy Media Matters and re-tweets of leftwing hate using the Twitter hashtag “#IAmAndrewBreitbart” as the battle cry.

Soon we’ll see others imitating Breitbart’s gift for disbanding leftwing protests by simply asking the rent-a-mob, “Hey, what are you protesting?”

And I am confident we’ll soon see more conservatives boldly come out of the shadows in Hollywood without fear of retribution.

The task may seem daunting, but a whole new generation of conservatives has been inspired. I’ve seen it first hand. When my daughter Bristol saw the video of Breitbart’s speech at a Tea Party rally in Madison, Wisconsin, she was fired up. She turned to me and said, “Breitbart is cool!”

Yes, he is cool. And “Breitbart Is Here.”

Now let the vetting begin.

According to Steve Schmidt Sarah was not vetted at all. A google vet at best. So why is she complaining about Barack Obama not being vetted?

I think it's a mental illness, not sure of the term. When someone accuses you of this and that when the same is applied to you. Someone help me out here.

  1. What a load of codswallop!

    Not sure if this is what you're looking for, but when a person accuses another of what they themselves are guilty of, it's called projection.

  3. "When someone accuses you of this and that when the same is applied to you."

    Projection?

    Not sure it's a "mental illness," but it is something most of us do; assuming the other guy has the same motivations as one's own self. Con artists understand this; the trusting are fooled, and the greedy think they can out maneuver the con.

  4. The Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which the unskilled suffer from illusory superiority, mistakenly rating their ability much higher than average. This bias is attributed to a metacognitive inability of the unskilled to recognize their mistakes.[1]

    Kruger and Dunning proposed that, for a given skill, incompetent people will:

    tend to overestimate their own level of skill;
    fail to recognize genuine skill in others;
    fail to recognize the extremity of their inadequacy;
    recognize and acknowledge their own previous lack of skill, if they can be trained to substantially improve.

    1. This certainly explains why she makes the same mistakes over and over again. I believe her advisors convinced Sarah she needs to improve, and Sarah tried very hard to fool them into believing she could actually learn by memorizing material and regurgitating it back to them. Pretending to comprehend material you don´t understand never works on informed people. The bullshit meter spikes every time.

      I am convinced she has a learning disability.

  5. Simple. Palin is still jealous to her core of the President and his lovely family, and her handlers are playing the same evil record they tried in 2008. Meanwhile, the President is signing with a deaf man...hey, Sarah, how many signs does your child know? Do you know any?
    I do wish this "Christian" could, just once, focus on the positive instead of the negative. She is just annoying.

    1. Sarah is jealous beyond belief. Of Michelle. Sarah pays people to tell her she is ¨waaaaay prettier than Michelle.¨ Itś sad if you think about it. Sarah was not pretty enough to beat a black Miss Alaska. Sarah was not pretty enough to be the NBA wife of Glen Rice. Sarah was not pretty enough to catch the eye of President Obama.

      In other words, Sarah is not good enough to be black.

  6. Water seeks it's own level and Sarah putting herself with Breitbart is exactly where she belongs.
    He was a very foul person who used verisimilitude and "edited" video to produce lies about liberal causes and people.
    He was being sued by many. He was a drug and alcohol abuser.
    Sarah is using his "celebrity" to keep herself in the news.
    How low will she go? This is pretty low. Bristol thinks he's cool, really?
    What else can we expect from these self proclaimed trash than pallin round with the likes of Breitbart?

    "[Bristol] turned to me and said, “Breitbart is cool!”"

    Ahahaha...LOL...hahahahaha... this is the extent of Bristol's vocabulary. Something is either "cool" or it "sucks". He tiny pea brain can't come with anything else. This proves she has no real education. Yep. I was right. She really is a total idiot with very very low intelligence. I've had conversations with dogs that were more engrossing.

    If I see any of these posters I will cross out "HERE" and write "DEAD!" or "WORM FOOD!" with a big ol' smiley face.

  10. What's with this 20 years bullshit she's been using since '08? She was a city council member with an undistinguished career for 3 years and then ran for Mayor where the city administrator did all the work yet Palin took all the credit. She was Governor for 2.5 yrs. The total is 11.5 yrs, not 20 yrs. I knew she wasn't a good student but I thought she was able to do simple addition.

    As for Breitbart, Palin comparing him to our troops is so insulting to our military. Our military treats our President with the respect he deserves. Her complaint of President Obama not being vetted clearly shows she wasn't paying attention to the campaign until she became involved in it. He had been running for President for 18 months, had been in more articles than anyone could count and his past was thoroughly researched. She wants to compare the timeline in which she was running for VP with President Obama's, not realizing that the media had already done their job and so did the McCain campaign and Clinton campaign. The only people that talked about the tanning bed were in Alaska and Palin had the house manager for the Governor's mansion lying about how the money was being used to run a new electrical line for the tanning bed. She didn't want the taxpayers to know they were paying for the electrical work. It's in the emails that were released last year. Palin was not properly vetted by the media but instead the bloggers did their work for them. She's still whining about this four years later. What a wimp she is!

    Sarah, Breitbart isn't here. He's dead and while I'm sorry for the pain his family will go through, I'm happy his lies will be stopped. He was a despicable, disgusting man who had no hesitation to spin things and edit video in order to try to prove whatever crazy conspiracy theory was at work in his miniscule brain.

    You didn't generate the publicity you were seeking when you called out the President to debate you, nor did you get the attention you wanted when you said he should be apologizing to you for Bill Maher and returning money sent to a PAC that supports him. You, again, prove your ignorance with the latter statement since if the President were to ask the PAC to return the money to Maher, he would be acting illegally because he's not allowed to have anything to do with these PACS. Some people actually follow regulations, Sarah, and act responsibly and ethically when it comes to PACS. You chose to use your PAC as a means to support your immediate and extended family, even taking a vacation with it. I doubt that is what your donors had in mind and they said that loud and clear with the decrease in donations. STFU,Sarah!

  11. So Bristol what is so cool about this:
    Early this morning, news broke that Sen. Ted Kennedy had passed away after serving in the U.S. Senate for nearly 50 years. Soon after, conservative commentator Andrew Breitbart began a sustained assault on Kennedy’s memory, tweeting “Rest in Chappaquiddick.”

    Over the course of the next three hours, Breitbart unapologetically attacked Kennedy, calling him a “villain,” “a big ass motherf@#$er,” a “duplicitous bastard” and a “prick.” “I’ll shut my mouth for Carter. That’s just politics. Kennedy was a special pile of human excrement,” wrote Breitbart in one tweet. source: thinkprogress.org

    Bristol, use some of that free Pac money and buy a clue. Go shoot a tree!

  12. " an issue near and dear to my heart." Yes, because you absolutely seethe with rage at the thought that a BLACK family is in YOUR White House. You never saw yourself as number 2 on the ticket, did you, Tundra Turd? The poison of hate is eating you from the inside out. It bubbles to the surface, which is why your bizarre wigs never sit quite right. YOU LOST, YOU LOST, YOU LOST! The very gracious, intelligent, compassionate Obamas are in the White House. And you? Well, you're on a dead lake. Very appropriate considering the state of your soul, don't you think?

    They want him to be worshiped and followed by their young. Bristol is being set up to be an iconic (female) legend for their poor young ones.
