"Taking back OUR country!"
Be careful WHO you are, if you use this phrase...
After extolling the virtues of America, Mrs Palin wrapped up her speech by assuring those present that everything will be fine in this country, and current problems can be solved by showing up and making yourself known through votes at the 'ballot box' in November's election. This is how Americans can "take back their country." (Palin makes this remark at around 4:15 on the following video):
Not one 'hateful' word was spoken in this woman's entire address, however, leave it to the leftist media to spew its venom towards Palin and the Tea Party movement, as tattered American Rag Papers take final gasps for life and future survival.
Defending comments leveled at Palin and the Tea Partiers, surrounding the 'take back America' statement, were usual kooks of the left, including Civil Rights Activist, Reverend Al Sharpton.
Appearing on FOX new's O'Reilly Factor, Sharpton tried to illustrate 'racial components' contained in the one line delivered by Palin....'Take back OUR country." Displaying his own racist attitude, Sharpton elaborated by pointing out, there are 'racist leaves in the tea bag.'
(Sharpton's words can be heard at around 3:00 on the following video):
Apparently the Reverend Al and his fellow leftist nuts were not offended by past offerings from pathetic members of the Democratic party, which has run roughshod over an entire race of Americans in this country for uncountable decades.
Tell us Al--Howard Dean, a bigot? What about your buddies James Carville and Paul Begala--racist bastards, aren't they!
And who could possibly forget HILLARY CLINTON's closing remarks when she suspended her campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination. Asking her supporters to get behind Barack Obama and send a Democrat to the White House. Mrs. Clinton concluded by saying:
"This is now our time to do all that we can to make sure that in this election we add another Democratic president to that very small list of the last 40 years and that we take back our country and once again move with progress and commitment to the future."Then we witness Speaker of the United States House of Representative, Nancy Pelosi, in an outlandish display of arrogance, when she and her fellow congressmen vote on Health (Care) Insurance legislation, despite overwhelming disapproval by a vast majority of Americans.
Making her way through the crowd, locked arm in arm with a contingent of associates (noticeably a select few from the House Black Caucus membership), Pelosi carried a very large wooden gavel. One must admit, not seeing a piece of lumber this large since the days when several of her fellow Democratic forerunners performed with their own representations of racial bigotry!
This has to be one of our favorites....Lester Maddox, revolver in hand, following his club wielding son, as they 'escort' a black aspiring patron of Maddox's restaurant. For those not familiar--Lester Maddox later served as a Democratic Governor of the State of Georgia.
And who could ever forget Democratic Governor George Wallace and his mighty stand against desegregation in 1963 at the University of Alabama.
No civil rights story would be complete without mention of that good old boy Orval Eugene Faubus who served as Democratic Governor of the great state of Arkansas, when in 1957 he attempted to bar African-American students from attending Little Rock Central High School, despite orders from the United States Supreme court.
And Al, one more interesting reminder--it was a REPUBLICAN President (Dwight D. Eisenhower) who ordered United States troops into Arkansas to enforce this Supreme Court ruling.
Also, before you go on about that great Civil Rights emancipator, Democratic President Lyndon B. Johnson--you might want to check your history on this one--Without the VOTES OF REPUBLICAN LEGISLATORS--Civil Rights legislation would not have passed!
