The Lesson in the Betrayal of Sarah Palin

4063654016?profile=originalRush Limbaugh on his radio show discussed an article which stated that there is no respected voice in the national arena articulating Conservatism. Such an advocate for Conservatism is crucial to reversing the direction of America as Obama drives us toward socialism while low-info voters gleefully sing Kumbaya in the backseat.


Well excuse me for pointing out the obvious, but we had an extraordinary advocate for Conservatism and look what happened to her. Judas on our side betrayed her – sold her reputation for 30 seconds of fame and favor with the media.


Even now, folks on our side are still beating up on Sarah Palin saying – Palin has lost her appeal – Palin is unelectable – Palin wasn't smart enough – Palin wasn't prepared and etc. So, this is how we treat our heroes.


Many Democrat Party politicians/advocates are immoral, liars and cheats. And yet, they are treated like super-stars by the media. Democrats have the backs of their associates, no matter what. For example: Democrats never rebuked Clinton for receiving oral sex from an intern in the Oval Office. They simply launched a campaign claiming that any man in Clinton’s position would have reacted like him. Think about that folks, Democrats and the media lowered the standard of national leadership behavior to cover their guy.


We Conservatives act as if our representatives must be the reincarnation of Jesus Christ – perfect in every way. At a Conservative's slightest misstep, Republicans/Conservatives trip over one another backing away from the individual in an effort to get out of the media and Democrat's line of fire.

Clearly, advocates of Conservatism are expected to walk on water by both political parties.


Word on the political street is we need a respected advocate for Conservatism to reach low-info voters. While I do believe a new voice will emerge, I wonder who could be better than Sarah Palin? Will we betray our new Conservative hero?


Inevitably, Palin's humanity was revealed; she was not perfect. But still, Palin is extraordinary and will be a tough act to follow.


Allow me to recap. Immediately following her amazing VP nomination acceptance speech, the media/the left went crazy consumed with hatred and a desperate desire to destroy her. Why? Palin was a beautiful, smart, articulate and strong woman who boldly touted traditional values and a love for God, family and country – all of which are anathemas to the left.


No tactic was too low to discredit Palin. Thus, the left even attacked Trig, Palin's Down Syndrome child.


Women in my family parroted the media talking point that Palin was bad for women. I thought, “You idiots, Palin is the epitome of everything the left/Democrats claim to desire for women – successful inside and outside of the home.”


While governor of Alaska, the left tried to drown Palin in lawsuits. Palin resigned to save her state from the cost and aggravation. The left's mantra was Palin is a quit-er and republicans/conservatives joined their chorus.


Another thing the left successfully did to discredit Palin was to brand her “stupid”. Who among us could survive every word out of our mouth being judged from a point of view that you are stupid? Meanwhile, Obama ran around saying America has 57 states and the media completely ignored this faux pas, along with several others by Obama.


Despite relentless attacks by hostel interviewers, in every TV interview, Palin always stood strong, boldly touting Conservatism. Man, you got to love this remarkable woman.


Also, completely ignored is Palin's tremendous charisma which I witnessed first hand on numerous occasions. We launched one of our Tea Party Express national bus tours in Searchlight Nevada - a huge dust bowl. Palin was our keynote speaker. Twenty-five thousand patriots attended with many camping out the night before to reserve their spot. Through the windows of our Tea Party Express bus as we arrived, I watched seniors who parked a mile away using walkers to make their way to the event.


The admiration for Palin felt a little like the scene in the Bible in which a woman said if I can just touch the hem of His garment, I will be made whole. In all of my 400 tea parties and 9 tours across America, no one, I repeat, no one affected audiences like Sarah Palin.


When this new conservative voice emerges on the scene, will we stand behind our hero no matter what, barring something immoral or criminal? Or, will we expect our guy or gal to be the second coming of Jesus. Have we learned something from the Republican/Conservative betrayal of Palin and their passivity and culpability in the media's viscous vile destruction of her image?


Sarah Palin, on behalf of We The People, I wish to thank you for your profile in courage, trumpeting Conservatism (God, family and country).

  • Well said Mr. Marcus - of course it's common for main stream media to go after conservative politicians with can openers.

  • Well folks', the way I see our course of options, and we don't have many left, is to begin with massive passive demonstrations. We must go to the seat of our main problem (Washington, DC) and let our voices be heard. We cannot count on any media to help us. Our representatives are either corrupt or have no spine. The military can't be counted on to help or they would have already! Our so called voting ssytem is a complete joke and as crooked as a dogs hind leg. So there you have it "fellow patriots". If we don't band together and correct our nations sickness NOW, we will surely be forced to watch as our USA dies a slow and painful death. It isn't to late, but once started, we must stay the course, what ever be the cost.

  • How bout a PALIN / PAUL  ticket ?

  • Sarah Palin was the one who should have been running against Obama in 2008 , it is obvious that she was nominated by McCain to be a politically correct move against Obama . When she proved to be just a little bit to smart and politically savy party leaders and McCain got nervious and pushed her to the background . As for anyone saying she is dumb ? I defiy them to defend Joe Biden and some of the Moronic and imbecilic statements he has made over the past four years . She was wise to get out of the evil game we call politics in order to protect her family . Both the left and the right treated this Lady badly . The left does not surprise me , they say and do anything to acheive their agendas and get away with it . The right I was disappointed in , but Sarah kept her poise and held her head high . Should she run for President , I would vote for her and be proud . As it is now we are stuck with a wanna be tyrant , Barry Omaomao is out to destroy America and just might by the end of four more years

  • I could not agree with you more.

  • I have never given up on Sarah Palin.  The people who gave up on her were rinos and republicans who have not had a set of cohones since they were elected.  McCain and Romney are both such jokes, I do not have the words to accurately describe them.  I am sure my next comment will bring a lot of heat on myself, but here it is.  The republicans in the house and senate have become nothing but the slaves of the democrats.  

  • At risk of being labeled a sexest,I have had mixed thoughts about women in polotics,however if Sarah is to ever run as a presidential candidate or any other office she has my vote

  • Sarah Palin should adopt the political strategy that made Mrs. Margaret Thatcher famous. According to Wikipedia: "Thatcher's popularity during her first years in office waned amid recession and high unemployment, until economic recovery and the 1982 Falklands War brought a resurgence of support, resulting in her re-election in 1983." Sarah Palin should defy all odds, we should stand shoulder to shoulder and defend her right to confront the Progressive Democrats, Socialists, and launch a campaign against them in 2016, be it Biden, Hillary, or anyone else. The safe assurance that we will have to win in 2014 and 2016 is to destroy voter corruption, electoral fraud, in all nooks and crannies, and have a frenzied grass roots movement to kick our Republican followers in the pants to achieve success.  Think about it, Lloyd, the Tea Party Express was the experiment for success, and the vehicle to connect all parts of the USA, keeping them informed, active, and enthused about the "movement to recapture our Republic.

  • Thanks Lloyd. I enjoyed your article and agree with you. Sarah is a class act.
