Never let it be said that Sarah Palin doesn’t have an opinion on something. The former vice-presidential candidate, former mayor of Wasilla, and former part-time governor of Alaska recently waded into the Rachel Dolezal fiasco. Sarah Palin managed to dive into the situation in entirely a Sarah Palin kind of way. That means she took the situation centering around Rachel Dolezal and turned it into some kind of attack on the Democratic party and Elizabeth Warren.
Sarah Palin also put her very special touch on the Rachel Dolezal situation by putting her comments on the official Sarah Palin Facebook page. Because as we all know, the best way for people who used to aspire to the White House to get their message across is in a bunched up paragraph on a social media platform that people use to plan parties and show off pictures of their last meal.
Sarah Palin took on the Rachel Dolezal situation with the rambling post that read as follows.
“Ok, I’m sorry. I shouldn’t laugh… this hard. I know this isn’t a victimless crime, what this white chick perpetrated. But it’s a most crystal clear picture of so many screwed up things we’ve let society adopt as the norm. Namely, the practice nowadays of judging someone not based on character, but on skin color. Our original civil rights freedom fighters are rolling in their graves over the backward steps we’ve taken lately. It’s politically incorrect to call out Elizabeth Warren for falsely claiming she’s American Indian, or dinging Obama for just making up his former multi-ethnic girlfriend, and I guarantee I’ll be branded a racist for laughing at this Rachel Dolezal story. Whatever. Dolezal is an unsatisfied lily white leftist who believes the only thing less politically correct than being a white girl is to be a white guy today. Can’t help but be preemptively amused as I post this and invite Dolzel’s defenders wrath to aim and miss at we who won’t put up with political correctness destroying truth in America.”
Let’s all stop and take a minute to see that Sarah Palin managed to misspell Rachel Dolazel’s name despite typing it several times in the same paragraph. Let’s also all take a minute to try and figure out what that last sentence of Sarah Palin’s diatribe even means. Ignoring all that, it seems as if Sarah Palin jumped on this particular bandwagon only after she knew it was safe ground to tread.
