In the latest installment of "What dumb f*cking thing did Sarah Palin say now?", we have a statement from the moose huntin' former Vice Presidential candidate that really is a special kind of stupid.
In a post on facebook titled "OBAMA IS A SPECIAL KIND OF STUPID" (yes, she really did say that) Palin went on a syntactically garbled rant in an attempt to paint the president as a supporter of Islamic terrorism bent on stealing American citizens' guns. She writes:
Enough is enough, Mr. President. There's no "due respect" due you after pulling this stunt.
Exploiting a sick, evil, ideological-driven attack on Americans to further your twisted anti-Second Amendment mission is disgusting. Today you're demanding an "explanation" from law abiding gun owners, but not demanding the same from followers of Islam, the religion behind this terror?
If the demented Orlando terrorist doesn't represent all Islamic followers, then why do you insinuate he represents all gun owners?And why, after any shooting, do you always want to take away firearms from the innocent people who didn't do it?Forget your asinine gun control, do your job and engage in Islamic terrorist control.Yes, it's a special kind of stupid to demand we explain ourselves. But if you really want them, get ready for our explanations. Here's mine:http://injo.com/…/631166-hold-president-obama-visit-to-or…/…- Sarah Palin
How Palin managed to construe this warped view of president Obama's position on gun control and Islamic terrorism is a testament to how small and petty her brain is given:
a) The Obama administration has been supremely efficient in killing Islamic terrorists -- so much so that the Atlantic's Jeffrey Goldberg (a conservative) labelled Obama "The greatest terrorist hunter in the history of the presidency" and b) Obama categorically is not "demanding an explanation" from law abiding gun owners about the massacre in Orlando, or insinuating Omar Mateen represents all gun owners.
The article Sarah Palin references quotes Obama as saying the following:
Those who defend the easy accessibility of assault weapons, should meet these families and explain why that makes sense….Why is it they think our liberty requires these repeated tragedies? That’s not the meaning of liberty.
Only an idiot would translate that as Obama pinning the blame for the Orlando massacre on law abiding gun owners -- he is quite clearly going after those who defend "the easy accessibility of assault weapons," as his actual words would indicate . Furthermore, Donald Trump, the politician Palin supports for president, also backed a ban on assault weapons. But of course Obama has a foreign sounding name, so he is a terrorist sympathizer.
Palin's implication that the followers of Islam -- all 1.5 billion of them -- answer for the actions of Omar Mateen is the truly disgusting and stupid statement. Palin thinks nothing of smearing all muslims and painting an entire religion as evil because of the actions of an individual -- again, a testament to her petty vindictiveness.
One has to admire the gall she has in calling the President "stupid" given her own astonishing intellectual deficits. It truly is remarkable that a woman so astoundingly inarticulate and ignorant manages to command the attention of millions of followers. But then again, almost 50% of Republicans believe president Obama is a muslim, despite him being baptized, married in a church and never worshipping in a mosque.
Sadly this woman won't go away, so the least we can do is continually expose her ramblings for what they are: utter, utter nonsense.
