Sarah Palin Joins The “Just Like Slavery” Teabernacle Choir

When republican critics get tired of calling President Obama a Muslim or a socialist or a Kenyan or a homosexual or a tyrant or a mad genius or an idiot figurehead or a Black Panther or a Wall Street lackey or lizard overseer, they generally just resort to comparing him to Adolf Hitler. However, lately a new unfounded and irrational insult has been working its way up the charts of the conservative hitlist, and has-been, half-term governor Sarah Palin is the latest to give it her rendition.

Palin: When that note comes due … and this isn’t racist … but it’s going to be like slavery when that note is due. We are going to be beholden to a foreign master.

Palin was referring to the national debt, which she seems to believe is at risk of being sent to the International Collections and Captivity Corporation for redemption. While it was thoughtful of her to remind us that associating her remarks about the first African-American president with the historical scab of slavery isn’t racist, she nevertheless fails to grasp the intricacies of economics. But she does align herself with a growing congregation of noxious Tea Partiers who think that anything President Obama does that they don’t like is just like slavery. For instance…

  • Rush Limbaugh: Well over 50% of the American people don’t want [Obamacare]. And the Republicans are like ‘well we can’t do anything about it. The law’s the law, It’s the law of the land.’ Well, so was slavery one time, the law of the land.
  • Dr. Ben Carson: Obamacare is “the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery. […] In a way, it is slavery, because it is making all of us subservient to the government.
  • Sen. Rand Paul: Basically, once you imply a belief in a right to someone’s services — do you have a right to plumbing? Do you have a right to water? Do you have right to food? You’re basically saying you believe in slavery.
  • VA Atty Genl Ken Cuccinelli: “The founders knew how bad [slavery] was. We have other things in this country today and abortion is one of them.
  • Former Rep. Allen West: He does not want you to have the self-esteem of getting up and earning, and having that title of American. He’d rather you be his slave.
  • NH Rep. Bill O’Brien: And what is Obamacare? It is a law as destructive to personal and individual liberty as the Fugitive Slave Act.
  • Glenn Beck: What do you think these federal jobs are all about? These federal jobs are not about helping anything. They are about getting people enslaved to the state.

Is this trend of comparing Obama’s agenda to slavery better than comparing him to Hitler? It’s a tough call. But many on the right may not mean it as an insult. There are some prominent conservatives who have publicly expressed their opinion that slavery was actually a pretty good thing. So perhaps this is just Palin’s way of complementing Obama.

  1. Has anyone noticed that the Tea Party is now allowing this brainless creature to come up with the week’s “unfounded and irrational insults,” as Mark puts it, to satisfy the Tea Party’s Obama Derangement Syndrome? Once upon a time, it would have been Bachmann, who we know is also a brainless creature, but at least she had the advantage of an elected position. How quickly the morons are abandoned. How much longer will it be before this imbecile is abandoned?

    Oh, yeah, forgot, Limbaugh still worships her — and the Tea Party worships Limbaugh. Never mind…

    • Thankfully, Bachmann is leaving soon.

  2. Um, Mark, it’s “complImenting,” not “complEmenting” in the last sentence. Complement is to complete, which is disturbing in itself…

  3. Palin knows that her fifteen minutes of fame are up. As for the conservative movement in general, they’ve seen their better days.

    • You’re right if people are actually looking to her for leadership – that won’t be happening.

      • Indeed, she’d quit in the middle of leadering and leave the folks high and dry.

  4. She has an acute case of ODS. In addition to that malady she is really, really, really stupid.

    • ODS? Is that Overbearing Dumbass Syndrome? 🙂

  5. The more we are forced to give to government vs. keeping for ourselves to support our own goals and desires – the more we become slaves. Of course, anyone who depends on the government for their financial support is a slave now. I know progressives don’t see it that way, but others do and enough to impact elections – so some bridge between the 2 sides would be good to build. Who exactly do you think listens to Sarah Palin? Fox News may like her, but I’m not getting some big movement out there for her to be something more – she is just a talking head. She is also a quitter (as Alaska governor), which makes her unsupportable in my book.

  6. I just saw “12 Years a Slave” and the debt is exactly like what that guy experienced in that movie! And so is food stamps!

    • Go watch Keeping up with the Kardashians or some other mind numbing TV and be happy slave. You’re playing your part well (pat on the head).
