Governor Palin’s Message: Self-Reliance, Not Selfies

In a press conference this morning to promote her upcoming show on the Sportsman Channel, Governor Palin took the opportunity to share her refreshing message of true female empowerment. As EOnline reports:

When E! News asked what Palin would like Amazing America to teach the young girls who tune in, Palin was quick to respond saying, "That they need to be, and can be, and have to power to be self-reliant. They can be independent and they too have equal opportunity to get out there and enjoy all that has been given to us here in America."

While Governor Palin’s intention is, for the most part, to eschew politics, the show’s cultural message will be 180 degree different than the liberal message of female empowerment through governmental reliance.  Instead the show will be a modern day, American culturally-based equivalent to Alexis de Tocqueville’s Democracy in America. Governor Palin will highlight the true promise zones of America–her people and their achievements. As USA Today reports:

Palin, wearing black except for flag-patterned high-heeled shoes, says it’s "not going to be some kind of fake scripted reality show" but will "showcase people, places and things in order to restore, fundamentally, what makes America great," including her own family. Red-state Americans live an organic lifestyle that’s not limited to urban "granola" fans. "Their dinner just happens to be wrapped in fur rather than cellophane. So be it that we go out and shoot our dinner first."

As for Governor Palin’s additional message to young women, she also noted:

"I think this world would be better off having more young women holding a fish in a picture than holding their camera in front of a bathroom mirror, talking a selfie." The 2008 Vice Presidential candidate announced to a room full of reporters at the Television Critics Association Friday morning.

I tend to agree. Choose snapper over Snapchat and crappie over cropping.

    This Gov. Palin’s new project will be more interesting than her other previous projects.

      Well, I thought Sarah Palin’s America was very interesting, as well. I got the opportunity to see and learn a lot of Alaska and was happy that she did it.

    My phone cannot take a selfie, maybe the Government can mandate only selfie phones and give me one lol. I like how Firelight over at P4A put it "I am not a fan of the selfie and I really love that the Governor brought
    this whole narcissistic habit to light and made the point that we
    should focus on pictures of accomplishment (or family) rather than just
    pics of ourselves."

    "Amazing America" is going to be a great show. I can’t wait until April 3rd, either.

    Leave it to Sarah to articulate common sense analogy so that everyone can see the differences that were hidden in the acts. Powerful message from a powerful great Lady. Love it.

    Dear Gov.

    That picture of you holding a fish just got you an ethics complaint from designated MOONBATS and by the Keepers Of Odd Knowledge.
