Gov. Palin Reminds Americans About Unpatriotic Comments from 2008… LSM Freaks Out

By Stacy Drake

The left-wing media was freaking out Friday over some comments Governor Palin made during a speech she gave at the Liberty and Freedom Foundation forum in San Jose on Thursday. She said:

“You know, when I hear people say, or had said during the campaign that they’ve never been proud of America, haven’t they met anybody in uniform yet?”

I am happy to report that the media is paying attention to Governor Palin’s speeches (pay close attention, LSM you may just learn something). However, I think it’s funny that the press came ferociously to Michelle Obama’s defense after Governor Palin’s comments. Although Andrea Mitchell cited, in her lunatic brand of reporting, which is nothing more than spouting off delusional left-wing sentiment, that Governor Palin was “taking a direct shot at the First Lady.” Actually, Governor Palin never mentioned Michelle Obama by name. Somebody has a complex.

In all honesty, everybody in America knows who Governor Palin was talking about. That’s because what FLOTUS let slip during the pre-FLOTUS campaign days was so disgraceful, she rightly caught lots of flak for it.

Andrea Mitchell, still doing the bidding of the Obama administration, said today that Governor Palin “was taking the First Lady’s comments completely out of context!” How so, Andrea? She said what she said. Here’s the video of Michelle’s remarks during the campaign in proper context:

She talks about being “proud for the first time” in her “adult lifetime” of her country. She said it wasn’t just because “Barack has done well,” but because people were “hungry for change.” Meaning, people were going to vote for “change” otherwise known as her husband. She then goes on to talk about not feeling so alone in her “disappointment” in the country. What a patriot! How could Governor Palin get that so wrong?

Alas, she didn’t get it wrong at all. I happen to have received my college degree in the Arts. I obtained said degree in Southern California, so believe me when I tell you that I have been around my fair share of radical left-wingers. I know how they think and I know the way they talk. Like Michelle Obama, they generally have little nice to say about the United States of America and they surely aren’t proud of their country.

Like Governor Palin, I carried the patriotism my parents instilled in me, into my adulthood. Anytime I see a service member, or tall metropolitan buildings, a vast farm, or even the beauty of our deserts, I have a sense of pride in this nation. I read the founding documents and look at the legacy of liberty in which America was built, and I cannot even fathom living in a different country. I, like Governor Palin, have always been extremely proud of my country.

After Andrea Mitchell spun the details of Michelle Obama’s words, she then snidely asked the question “was smart to take on the popular First Lady.” I understand Michelle Obama is popular at Spanish resorts, but I’m not exactly predicting a revolt against the Governor for reminding Americans about the First Lady’s heart. The media on the other hand… Well, once again they showed their true colors while “reporting” on this Friday. They have no trouble with the thought that Michelle Obama may not be someone who dearly loves this country, as a First Lady should. No, they just don’t want Americans to think that is the case.

Sarah Palin Talks To The Liberty & Freedom Foundation In San Jose, California

They act like they’re permanent residents of some unicorn ranch in Fantasy Land, if they really think they are going to be able to turn it around with the liberal policies that they want to continue!

On Thursday Sarah Palin talked to an enthusiastic crowd at the Center for the Performing Arts in downtown San Jose. The belly of the progressive beast.

The occasion was a fund raiser for the Liberty and Freedom Foundation.

The public forum was sponsored by the  Liberty and Freedom Foundation, whose executive director, Victor Cocchia, asked: “What better place to come to educate people as to the conservative message than the Bay Area, where conservatives are marginalized and not heard very often?

Sarah hammered ObamaCare, calling it “the mother of all unfunded mandates.” She also went after the failed $1 trillion stimulus bill and all the “shovel-ready projects” it was supposed to fund.

Now we know what they were shoveling, and it wasn’t asphalt!” Sarah added.

People in the crowd shouted in agreement. When one man hollered, “Throw the bums out!” Sarah replied, “Amen, brother. You betcha.

In a speech tailored to California interests, Sarah also lambasted the cutoff of water affecting millions of residents of the San Joaquin Valley because of “a two-inch fish,” the Delta smelt.

Where I come from,” she said, “we call that bait.”

As we’ve talked about on many occasions, environmental extremists have teamed up with the Marxists-democrats to absolutely destroy the once lush, green Valley, turning into what looks like a depression era dust bowl, complete with an unemployment rate of over 40%!

This in an area once called the “bread basket of the world.”

We all suspect that Sarah, while working day and night to help facilitate a huge Conservative victory next month, is also prepping herself for a 2012 run for the presidency. Darali Phillips, 67, of Los Gatos, said Palin has her vote. “We just don’t like what’s going on in Washington,” Phillips said, “and we want to change the tide of “big government taking more and more control of everything.

Terry Christensen, a political science professor at San Jose State, said: “I can think of only a handful of current politicians who have her celebrity status and star quality …. just Palin, Obama and the Clintons,”

An estimated 1,800 people came for the two-hour forum, during which Sarah answered questions from the attendees.

At a VIP reception at the Marriott Hotel afterward, attendees got a chance to meet Sarah and have pictures taken with her. That was followed by a dinner that included herb-roasted chicken breast and crm̈me brmlée cheesecake. This of course, raised additional funds for the foundation.

Our friends over at The Right Scoop have some exclusive video of the event where Sarah was really fired up, as were the people in the crowd! You can check that out by clicking here.
