It’s not funny. It’s not entertaining. Sarah Palin incites bigotry and hate in the United States, at the very time we need to be working toward minimization of video made attacking the most sacred of prophets in the Muslim world. Palin said:
“Look, if our fearless leaders insist on waving the white flag like this, then they need to bring our troops home from the Middle East, no more blood, no more U.S. treasure spent, not one drop, if those in control of our troops’ lives and our tax dollars going into things like this are going to capitulate—wait, apologize, for a First Amendment right of ours, freedom of speech, that our troops are over there fighting for,” Palin told Sean Hannity. “Sean, our commander-in-chief is contradicting what we believe our troop’s mission is and that is to protect freedom.”
Palin is suggesting that President Obama is surrendering to the Muslim protesters who were so offended by the video released on you tube. The protesters have turned out in the Middle East by the thousands. More people have been killed. A Television station employee was shot dead in Peshawar as violent crowds filled the streets protesting against the anti-Islam film. Muhammad Amir was shot three times by police as he drove through an area of protesters.
In an effort to bring peace and calm the rioters the President and Secretary of state made a short film and aired it throughout the Middle East. Here is the video.Watching the video it is clear that the United States is sending a clear message. It is a message that the United States Government did not condone the you tube video , it’s content or message. Both Obama and Clinton sent a message that the U.S. is committed to religious tolerance. There was no apology, but only a message of rejection of any “effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others.”
It is not surprising that Palin is once again advocating violence toward Islam
At a time when it is essential to bring calm to the area, and to save lives, Sarah Palin in her zeal to disparage our President adds fuel to the fire! Taunting the President, Palin suggests that the video made by the President is an apology instead of an effort to distance our Government from the incendiary video. Thank God Sarah Palin is not the person answering the phone at 3:00 am as she would tell the State Department to send more gasoline to the Middle East.
