In “Hey, this is surreal” news, we have Sarah Palin’s latest defense of her own crappy rhetoric. Using Facebook – the platform of the people! – to prove that her use of the word “reload” when targeting Democrats with crosshairs was as harmless as a sports metaphor, she wrote a March Madness post. Golly gee willickers!
Here’s the headline. “Warning: Subject to New Politically Correct Language Police Censorship”
The scrapped subhead was likely, “BTW, those words in that grouping don’t mean a fucking thing; I probably should have had a hyphen or two in there but I don’t know what a hyphen is.”
And here are two choice sections from the post:
To the teams that desire making it this far next year: Gear up! In the battle, set your sights on next season’s targets! From the shot across the bow – the first second’s tip-off – your leaders will be in the enemy’s crosshairs, so you must execute strong defensive tactics. You won’t win only playing defense, so get on offense! The crossfire is intense, so penetrate through enemy territory by bombing through the press, and use your strong weapons – your Big Guns – to drive to the hole. Shoot with accuracy; aim high and remember it takes blood, sweat and tears to win.
Focus on the goal and fight for it. If the gate is closed, go over the fence. If the fence is too high, pole vault in. If that doesn’t work, parachute in. If the other side tries to push back, your attitude should be “go for it.” Get in their faces and argue with them. (Sound familiar?!) Every possession is a battle; you’ll only win the war if you’ve picked your battles wisely. No matter how tough it gets, never retreat, instead RELOAD!
So get it? Targeting people with crosshairs and reloading is totally the same as playing a game of college basketball! And you’d be a fool and a Communist to think otherwise, you fag!
Why do people get so worked up over Sarah Palin? Oh, yeah. Because she’s a violence-inciting, redneck asshole with no intellectual curiosity but a bunch of charisma who’s managed to fool a bunch of dumb white people that she has their best interests at heart.
Know whose interests Sarah Palin has at heart, first and foremost? Sarah Palin’s. Followed by Sarah Palin’s and Sarah Palin’s. And maybe Sarah Palin’s.
