Can Anyone Understand Sarah Palin’s Latest Facebook Rant on Sharia Law in America?

According to Sarah Palin, Sharia law is coming to America, so Donald Trump is right — we must stop muslims coming into the country! Or at least that what it appears she thinks.

Here was the former Vice Presidential candidate’s latest facebook monstrosity, purportedly written in english:

Gov’t Isn’t Sifting Pro-Americans From Those Following Sharia Law, Which Conflicts With, and Actually HATES, Our Constitution and Ethics. SHARIA LAW DESTROYS AMERICA

So understand the gist of a temporary ban on those unvetted, just like Jimmy Carter was praised for doing during the Iran crisis. Remember? (Make liberals and RINOs explain their praise for that action, while blistering today’s proposal by Donald Trump to do the same.) Think, America! This is an American security issue, not a religious issue. Trump and Rand Paul are appropriately explaining this despite a “politically correct” uninformed cultural (and White House) filter that’s used by the media to keep low-information voters in the dark. You’re smarter than they give you credit for, America. And you certainly deserve better. Thank you for seeking truth! I hope to prove more “truth” on CNN next week. (Stand by for that.)

Firstly, who are “Those Following Sharia Law” coming into the country? This would be like saying: who are “Those Following Canadian Socialism” coming into the country? Syrians and Canadians live under the respective laws of their lands — they don’t have a huge amount of choice, so why anyone would hold it against them is anyone’s guess. Plus there’s also the small point that many of those fleeing Syria are actually fleeing Sharia Law.

Secondly, comparisons with Jimmy Carter’s ban on Iranians entering the US during the hostage crisis in 1979 is ridiculous. America and Iran were at a near state of war, and Iran is a country, not a religion. Banning Muslims, who could come from literally any country on the planet is not the same thingBut then of course, you’d have to know about history to understand this.
