Former Alaska governor and vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin (R) portrayed Christian conservatives as victims of progressive prejudice during a speech on Friday, Right Wing Watch reported.
“I’m speaking to the most slandered group in America today,” Palin said during her appearance at the Value Voters Summit. “Join me in telling the lamestream media, then, that we wear your scorn with pride.”
Palin accused critics of “pulling the race card” to avoid debating conservative ideas regarding economic and political policies from not only herself, but former Rep. Allen West (R-FL), Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and his father Rafael, and Fox News contributor Ben Carson.
“You can’t defeat our argument, so all you can do the subject,” she said. “So we win.”
Palin also attempted to allude to the White House, but botched the address.
“You don’t retreat — you reload the truth,” she said. “Which I know is an endangered species at 1400 Pennsylvania Avenue, anyway, truth.”
The actual address for the White House is 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C. A local hotel, the Willard, stands at 1401 Pennsylvania Avenue.
The event is hosted by the Family Research Council, which is listed as an anti-LGBT hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Maddow destroys ‘bad faith’ complaints about impeachment from Republican Trump supporters
The host of "The Rachel Maddow Show" on Friday blasted "bad faith" arguments from Republicans about the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.
Maddow recounted the process complaints by Republicans -- each of which has disappeared.
"After going through all of that, they now have unveiled a new objection as to why President Trump cannot actually be subject to this impeachment proceeding, a new noble stand they're taking for fairness and the American way -- they have rolled it out with our friends at the Fox News channel," Maddow said.
She played a clip of former GOP Speaker Newt Gingrich on Fox News.
Everyone is baffled by Trump’s rambling rant about flushing toilets ’10 times, 15 times’
Another day, another truly baffling series of words coming from President Donald Trump’s mouth.
Speaking at a White House meeting on Friday about small business and regulation, Trump went on one of his trademark riffs, touching on a number of subjects with the clarity of a muddy puddle. He seemed to be referring to a series of complaints that have been raised over the years about various consumer product regulations (a favorite topic of Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky) but without making a coherent point about any of them.
