PLANT CITY, Florida — Does Sarah Palin reject violence at Donald Trump’s rallies, while simultaneously justifying it? You betcha.
Palin, a surrogate for the Donald Trump campaign, crashed the Florida Strawberry Festival Sunday afternoon, an event that draws half a million people annually to central Florida.
Uninvited, unexpected, and to the consternation of the event’s organizers, Palin showed up in the self-proclaimed “winter strawberry capital of the world,” ostensibly to stump for Trump before Tuesday’s Florida primaries.
Palin’s appearance was intrusive, disruptive, and ultimately just about pointless. She spoke to no more than a couple dozen people as she posed for photos at a make-your-own-strawberry-shortcake stand, dragged a large entourage of police officers through a busy festival, and then left without giving any remarks to the crowd.
The former governor did, however, provide a contradictory opinion on recent incidents of violence against Trump protesters, one that is increasingly common among the billionaire businessman’s supporters: the violence is wrong, but it is also justified.
“The thugs who are disrupting his rallies are doing nothing but harm to anyone’s right to assemble peacefully, and right to speak. [The people] who are disrupting… they’re not protesters, they’re much more violent than that,” Palin told The Daily Beast. The former Alaskan governor blamed Trump’s Republican opponents for “kinda milking” the violence in Chicago and North Carolina—which “perpetuates” the problem.
Simultaneously, the governor seemed to legitimize the strong-armed approach to protesters. Trump “certainly has [disavowed violence], thank goodness,” she said, while simultaneously arguing that “thugs” are trying to take away the free speech rights of Trump supporters. “Trump’s reminded people, we don’t have to put up with that, because they’re disrupting, not just his message, but the people’s right to be there to hear what he has to say,” Palin said.
Uninvited, unexpected, and to the consternation of the event’s organizers...sounds like Sarah crashing that motorcycle rally five years ago.
Oh and her flying back to Alaska was all bullshit:
