The Lesson in the Betrayal of Sarah Palin

4063654016?profile=originalRush 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).

    Great thought!
    The Republican "Establishment" (read "good old boys club") has drifted so far left (imho) of our Constitutionally Conservative Principles and are comfortably entrenched in their "seats of power" that they are resentful and afraid of anything that threatens that stasis. Sarah Palin does just that! She is a threat to the everyday way of "doing business" on Capital Hill (which has tuned into one of the most morally corrupt processes in the world)
    At rhis point, they know we know.
    Why do you think the big push is on to disarm us?
    They know we're coming for them..sooner than later.
    They all gotta go. Period.
    And, at this point, I don't care how it happens.
    Think about that.
  • Have to wonder if, even the GOP, are afraid of Sarah Palin, just as the progressive democrats do- -her light outshines all of them!

  • People of courage and truth, such as Gov Sarah Palin, regardless of political affiliation, race, creed,  gender, etc, will always be attacked by subversive insidious seditious elements, ie; anti-American liberal socialist marxists/islamists, whenever wherever they stand up to the seditious and subversive agents of tyranny, whom speak the truth, take active participation against the tyranny of those who seek the destruction of Individual Freedom, Liberty, Democracy, Truth- the US Constitutional Republic of America, of We the People.

    "A nation can survive its fools and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly against the city. But the traitor moves among those within the gates freely, his sly whispers rustling through all alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears no traitor; he speaks in the accents familiar to his victim, and he wears their face and their garments and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation; he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city; he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared. The traitor is the plague."

  • The Tea Party and Freedomworks are the only ones that will save this country and conservatism.  New media educating the masses on what conservatism really is and what our founders intended is paramount.  Talk radio is doing a great job but sometimes I wish all these voices would band together and really do something huge.  We are at war with the control of our culture and the very essence of what America is about.  I love all voices on conservatism.  I especially like Zonation and Bill Whittle with Declaration Entertainment.  PJTV now has Allen West, who was my choice for President.  Palin/West!  But I digress... Rush Limbaugh, Mark levin, Michael Savage, Glenn Beck, Michelle Malkin, David Horowitz, Laura Ingraham, Ann Coulter, Ted Nugent and Alex Jones.  They all have wonderful contributions.  What a truthful, breath of fresh air media empire that would be..It is time to leave the egos at the door and save our beloved country.   Liberals wouldn't know what to do.  A reckoning I reckon...

  • Mr. Russell - they only tell you that because they're hoping you're not smart enough to figure out what they're up to. It's not just you, it's anyone. The problems now are so sophisticated that it requires "experts" and "we the people" no longer applies or at least that is what they would really like us to believe.

  • Info, when both political parties tell me to sit down and shut up because I am too stupid or "unenlightened" to understand what is in my best interest I take it very personally.

  • Mr. Russell - I don't think it's personal; they're trying to knock the Tea Party out of the picture. They proved that at the convention.

  • Thanks for the reply Vanessa. I certainly will keep track of it. God bless you. This BS you spoke of is being spoon fed to these liberals and they so willingly partake. Theyre like chicks in a bird nest when mama bird comes back with a juicy worm the chicks are on it, heads back, mouth open, ready to recieve. "Something evil, this way comes" Lets be ready!!!

  • Those attacking Sarah Palin are the republicrat establishment. They HATE conservatives as much as the demoncrats do.

  • The main question is: What are we going to do in 2016?...   the same as with McCain and Romney?....  are we going to stand behind the "best" candidate and give full support... or...  as in 2012, try and destroy each and every candidate, before the primaries?  And, would we support Sarah Palin for VP with a "strong" Republican candidate, not of the "establishment" choice, and not do the yeoman's work for the Democrats, any more?
