Governor Palin gave an excellent interview with Neil Cavuto on Thursday.
In it, she responded to Senator John Kerry’s self-diminishing shot he took at her during the speech he gave at the Democratic National Convention. Her answer was a combination of substance and a little humor.
I think he diminished himself by even mentioning my name. How does he even know my name? I mean, aren’t these guys supposed to be these big-wig elites who don’t waste their time on the little people like me; me representing the average American? Yeah, I did say in Alaska you can see Russia from our land base and I was making the point that we are strategically located on the globe when it comes to transportation corridors and resources that are shared and fought over. Alaska and I, as the Governor, had known what I was doing in dealing with some international issues that had to do with our resources that could help secure the nation. It’s funny he’d take a little pot shot like that but it’s funny he even knows my name.
In the same interview, she attacked the furthered blatant racism which lies within the Democrat Party.
I thought it was a shame though to see the button that has been advertised, in fact I think it’s on the front page of Drudge today where it says “Once you vote black, you never go back.” A racist comment like that that’s being celebrated at the DNC this weekend and I’m sure that this is going to be the takeaway from this interview – and it will be, Neil, something people will condemn me for even bringing it up – but doggone it, it’s there in the Democrat National Convention.
How racist can that be? People need to open their eyes, they need to crunch the numbers, they need to do the math, and they need to do what’s right for their kids.
Governor Palin has experience in international affairs. That was the substance when she had to once again explain her comment on Russia in response to John Kerry. I’ve yet to hear one argument from the left on this though. The facts and knowledge she contained during her service as Governor were some of the most privileged, sensitive, and important pieces of information on energy issues having to do with the entire country and by extension, our security.
The Democrat Party has a problem with racism. The Democrats of course are always first to throw the charge of racism at their ideological enemies. But of course, they always disprove their claims by direct action. Bill Clinton said a couple years ago that Obama would be qualified to fetch his coffee for him. Harry Reid made condescending remarks about Obama’s skin tone and his “negro dialect.” Joe Biden warned a large black-American voting district that they’d be put “back in chains” if they voted against his ticket.
White liberal elitists like John Kerry, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid didn’t approve of Obama being black because they were impressed with the man himself. They knew he would simply provide the same policies they wanted to further entrap the black community under the weight of big government. They then got the extra added benefit of using him as their figurehead to label their ideological opponents as racists when their disastrous policies were challenged.
With liberals, you must walk (and talk) just like they do. It’s not their only requirement either. To them, just like with other privileges in America, the votes from the black community are viewed as entitlements.
This is why it’s so easy to portray themselves as pioneers for modern day civil rights, only to turn around and say the most blatantly racist things in the flipped manners they often display.
Yet, when these things are brought up as Governor Palin did with Cavuto, the messenger must be minimized, taken out of context, or silenced. This is precisely why they took Palin’s obvious sarcasm and turned it into a serious point in order to portray her as a clueless person who’s really surprised that John Kerry knew her name. The narrative can be found here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and many other places.
Democrats like to plug their ears and turn their heads when truth is beautifully articulated – particularly when it doesn’t serve them well. The only problem with that plan is they can’t count on everyone else doing the same thing.
