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).

  • The Liberal left and the Lame stream Media are SCARED SHITLESS of Sarah Palin, thats why they revile her so desperately. McCain threw her under the bus because he was afraid she would make him look like the sniveling loser RINO he is. But don't look to the Republican Party to back her or any Conservative, they are gutless and clueless and I will never support them as a party again. They are the saviours of the Democrats-against them, they can't lose!
  • Sarah Palin should have been the person on top of the ticket instead of John McCain who is RHINO. Palin was way more of conservative that anyone running as a Republican. Her and her family was so mistreated by so many who was scared of her and what she stood for. She also was the honest of them all and that scared the hell out of the Liberals, Republican Party and the Democrats . Their was no other reason but hate from the Democrats and people in her own party. Even McCain's own people within his camp leaked untrue things about the Palin family. There is no morally left in this country anymore. She was treated like the bastard step-child by people on both sides and others she trusted. The McCain camp was her main enemy it's like they needed a fall guy and she was it. So screw John McCain and the people that was her handlers and other in his camp. I wouldn't vote for McCain or anyone like him.

  • Just my own opinion if Sarah had been running instead of romney even with all the fraud going on I believe she could have beaten Obama. I look for her and Allen West to enter the picture for 2016 Yep I could be wrong also. But for sure though allen West is preparing for something bigger. Also the Dems found out it was true though Sarah had also been threatened when the news paper went through those emails plus her family. Because of that is why she stepped down she also knew she would never get another piece of Legislation passed with the Democrats in the house in "Alaska.

  • Thank you Lloyd. Wonderful article. We do need to find a way to fight against this liberal media and get some true facts out to the public. It may be a hard fight, but there has to be a way.

  • Our problem is not the fight, but the lack of a concentrated agenda beyond a generalization of "Conservative".

    When the radicals deceive and thieve continually, they use the freedom of all presses to spread their false tributes.

    As Conservatives, we must meet this continual evil with continual truth.

    When they band behind Obama and his lies, we must band behind the Conservative House and Senate members by broadcasting louder and more discretionary than the racist, welfare slaves.

    Our Conservative band must demand major cuts in the free-ride government programs that cost us more than the free-ride society provide as revenue.

    When the raider-of-America starts expanding spending through his new programs he will push things into overdrive to hurry us down the path of destruction.

  • Sarah Palin is someone who could pop Obama's buble of an American utopia with him calling all the shots. We need a leader who can unite us against the propaganda of Obama's lies mixed with smiles and sweet words. McCain and Romney could not overcome Obama's charm in pullling the wool over people's eyes. Sarah Palin could show the world what a small man Obama is and wake up our nation to the fact this is the first leader we have who bows to foreign kings and emperors and makes apologies for America's past actions. Aplolgizing shows weakness so don't apologize.


  • Sarah is still tops in my book.  She can still run circles around anyone the GOP puts forward.  The fact that the left and the media saw her as such a great threat to their cause speaks to her unique qualifications to lead the Conservative movement and to continue to aspire to the office of President of the United States.  Given the opportunity, she can be a phoenix, what this country needs to rise out of the ashes this administration has made of our nation.

  • Sarah is a lot of woman, smart, sociable, capable lots of intelligence,  and for all the junk passed around about her, she is no where as low mentally, or morally, as most of the other politicians we have in this country.  That is probably the reason so many lies were told about her, and even why her own party abandoned her.  Too bad, because we need some real talent at the top of our country, it has been way too long since we had a leader like she would have been.

  • I liked Palin when she was running and she was the only one who made any sense.  McCain couldn't keep up with her so he ignored her and kept her toned down to his level.  He wasn't running to win.  She was.  I still think she would be great and I'd back her in a minute.  We need her common sense now.
