Let’s count how many stupid things Sarah Palin said about ISIS, Ronald Reagan, and history
It has been brought to the attention of the President of Compulsive Facebook Posting Idiots — I speak, of course, of Sarah Palin — that a certain president [hint: Obama] of a smaller realm [hint: ‘Murica] is not making good choices in geopolitical affairs and is thereby putting ‘Murica at risk.
What Obama do to get Sarah all het up –THIS TIME — was to reach out to Iran for help in defeating ISIS since ISIS hate hate hates Shia Muslims and Iran is about 90% Shiite. So, you know, it seems like it would be in their best interests to gang up with us on ISIS, which is like the Westboro Baptist Church of the Middle East, although infinitely more likeable.
Sarah heard about this letter written on White House stationary at taxpayers expense after someone read her a press release from former GOP presidential nominee John McCain and future GOP presidential nominee (if there is a God and he or she loves us) and demure southern belle Lindsey Graham, who have once again joined forces to shit a kitten because President Obama is “doing things” without their permission. Rude.
Not wanting to be left standing on the sidelines — which is actually where she’s been located since she quit her civil service job to host an unwatched webcast show — Sarah wrote another of those wacky Facebook thingies at the president because Facebook is where he gets all of his good advice which he then ‘likes’ and sometimes even ‘shares’.
In an effort to set the prez straight, Palin drops some current and ancient history on him, because you know what they say: “Those who don’t know history probably skipped that class after transferring from HPU to North Idaho College. Whoo! Go Cards!”
Take it away, Sarah:
Good God, Mr. President. To partner with Iran is to trust the enemy, which is insane. Iran has complicity in the rise of ISIS as it supports radical militias and arms Islamic terrorists.
Congrats, Sarah Palin. It only took you twenty-two words to be wrong. That’s a new personal record, I do believe.
Sarah would be correct if “Iran has complicity in the rise of ISIS” meant that Iran wasn’t already fighting them:
The Iranians have already been assisting in the battle against ISIS on their own. Just this week, photos appeared on Iraqi websites showing that famed Iranian Gen. Qassem Suleymani had been present during a rare Iraqi army victory in a battle against ISIS extremists.
Shiite militia commanders told the AP that there were dozens of military advisers from Iranian Revolutionary Guard forces and Lebanese Hezbollah on hand for the recent battle, in the town of Jurf al-Sakher.
Sarah then goes blah blah blah about the lap-dog lamestream media and how Obama totally is the luckiest guy who ever lived — possibly because he got to run against John McCain and her own bad self in his first stab at the presidency — before she drops The R-bomb.
In the 2008 campaign Sen. McCain and I warned, on behalf of every reasonable person, that your willingness to negotiate with terrorists would get Americans killed; that pulling an anti-Reagan move by taking our Big Stick of strength and putting it in the hands of any foe could be insurmountably devastating for our allies.
[We’ll pause right here to wait for you to stop giggling at ‘Ronald Reagan’s Big Stick of strength.’ Grow up, you guys.]
Okay Sarah, , here is some primo uncut literally weapons grade “Palling around with terrorists”:
In 1985, while Iran and Iraq were at war, Iran made a secret request to buy weapons from the United States. McFarlane sought Reagan’s approval, in spite of the embargo against selling arms to Iran. McFarlane explained that the sale of arms would not only improve U.S. relations with Iran, but might in turn lead to improved relations with Lebanon, increasing U.S. influence in the troubled Middle East. Reagan was driven by a different obsession. He had become frustrated at his inability to secure the release of the seven American hostages being held by Iranian terrorists in Lebanon. As president, Reagan felt that “he had the duty to bring those Americans home,” and he convinced himself that he was not negotiating with terrorists. While shipping arms to Iran violated the embargo, dealing with terrorists violated Reagan’s campaign promise never to do so.
With the backing of the president, the plan progressed. By the time the sales were discovered, more than 1,500 missiles had been shipped to Iran. Three hostages had been released, only to be replaced with three more, in what Secretary of State George Shultz called “a hostage bazaar.”
When the Lebanese newspaper “Al-Shiraa” printed an exposé on the clandestine activities in November 1986, Reagan went on television and vehemently denied that any such operation had occurred. He retracted the statement a week later, insisting that the sale of weapons had not been an arms-for-hostages deal. Despite the fact that Reagan defended the actions by virtue of their good intentions, his honesty was doubted. Polls showed that only 14 percent of Americans believed the president when he said he had not traded arms for hostages.
hopey changey “good intentions” thing work out?
A federal judge ruled yesterday that Iran is responsible for the 1996 Khobar Towers bombing and ordered that the government pay $254 million to the families of 17 Americans who died in the attack in Saudi Arabia.
Nineteen people died in June 1996 when a truck bomb blew up the tower-style dormitory for U.S. Air Force pilots and staff. U.S. District Judge Royce C. Lamberth’s ruling yesterday was the first time an American court found that Iranian government agencies and senior ministers financed and directed the bombing by a militant Saudi wing of the Islamist terrorist group Hezbollah.
Whoopsie. Maybe not so good.
Next week: Palin tells President Obama that he better not try and take away our guns, reminding him of that time Ronald Reagan “warned, uh, the British that they weren’t going to be taking away our arms uh by ringing those bells and making sure as he’s riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be secure and we were going to be free and we were going to be armed.”
He then recorded ‘Indian Nation‘ which is the official US history of the Trail of Tears at the Smithsonian or something.
You can look it up…
