Sarah Palin can’t take a hint. It’s been six years since she lost her bid to become Vice-President of the United States, and yet she won’t go away. Even though her stupidity has turned off voters to the point where she’ll never again be a candidate for the highest offices in the land, she keeps coming back like a bad rash. You have to wonder if she even understands what most people think about her. Well, during her speech at a Tea Party rally, she was duly informed.
Sarah Palin gets called an idiot during her Tea Party rally speech.
On Sunday, as Palin used military veterans as political pawns during a Tea Party rally speech to protest the closing of war memorials, a member of the audience loudly told her that she’s an idiot. Senator Ted Cruz, Senator Mike Lee, other Tea Party Republicans turned in the direction of the heckler who bravely confronted her. Even Palin paused to look around.
PALIN: “This is a matter of shutdown priorities…”
AUDIENCE MEMBER: “You’re an idiot!”
PALIN: “…Our vets have proven that they have not been timid, we will not be timid in calling out any who would use our military, our vets, as pawns in a political game.”
Here’s the video via Occupy Democrats.
Military veterans were outraged and scolded Palin and the Tea Party for hijacking the Million Vet March.
Of course, most military veterans saw right through Palin and her rhetoric. After all, the Tea Party had hijacked the ‘Million Veterans March’ that had been organized by veterans. The Tea Party shamelessly used the non-partisan event to attack Democrats. During the rally, veterans scolded Palin as she attempted to accuse President Obama and Democrats of playing political games with them. Many pointed out that Republicans were the ones who caused the shutdown in the first place. However, Tea Party Republicans didn’t give a damn about what veterans actually think. They were too busy using veterans as pawns to shift blame for the government shutdown to Democrats.
The organizers of the march have since expressed their anger about the Tea Party takeover of the event.
“The political agenda put forth by a local organizer in Washington DC was not in alignment with our message,” the ‘Million Vet March’ website stated. “We feel disheartened that some would seek to hijack the narrative for political gain. The core principle is about all Americans honoring Veterans in a peaceful and apolitical manner.”
Sarah Palin is an idiot for using veterans as pawns for political and monetary gain.
‘Apolitical’ means not supporting any political group, even the Tea Party. But Palin and her right-wing cohorts only saw an opportunity to get photo-ops and pretend that all soldiers stand against President Obama and Democrats. Palin also may have seen it as a chance to step into the spotlight to generate interest in her new book. So not only did she use veterans for political gain, she used them for monetary gain as well, which truly makes her the queen idiot of the Tea Party.
