Why was she a guest speaker at this year’s AIP Convention? And she goes on to praise this anti-American group. Treason???
Sarah Palin accuses Obama of treason when at the same time she shows her support for an organization that enlisted Iran to help spread anti-American sentiment. I would consider that aiding and abetting the enemy. But then again, Republicans are allowed to commit treason without consequence. Karl Rove set the precedent when he exposed the name of a covert CIA Agent and never paid the price for his act of treason.
When someone at a Palin rally shouted “treason” and she remained silent, that is indicative of her approving that statement. She also supports the assassination of a candidate by not condemning the shout of “kill him” during one of her rallies. Her silence and smirk makes her complicit to hate mongering.
Read the article at Salon for more details about the Alaska Independence Party, their support and help in getting Palin elected Mayor of Wasilla and their sponsorship by Iran.
After learning more about the AIP, I can now understand that Sarah Palin’s is comfortable in stiring up racism and hate when she speaks.
The Republican ticket is working hard this week to make Barack Obama’s tenuous connection to graying, ’60s revolutionary Bill Ayers a major campaign issue. But the Palins’ connection to anti-American extremism is much more central to their political biographies.
Imagine the uproar if Michelle Obama was revealed to have joined a black nationalist party whose founder preached armed secession from the United States and who enlisted the government of Iran in his cause? The Obama campaign would probably not have survived such an explosive revelation. Particularly if Barack Obama himself was videotaped giving the anti-American secessionists his wholehearted support just months ago.
Where’s the outrage, Sarah Palin has been asking this week, in her attacks on Obama’s fuzzy ties to Ayers? The question is more appropriate when applied to her own disturbing associations.
