Sarah Baby, according to your interpretation of the First Amendment, you can indeed yell that in a crowded theater. You can also go up to someone who is African American, and call them the “N Word”. In Sarah Palin’s America, you can call someone a Communist even though they aren’t; you may feel free say anything you want about anyone, most especially in the media because your rights to absolutely unlimited speech are protected by the First Amendment! Isn’t that right, Sarah Baby?
Every time I think this woman can say something or do something dumber than previously shown, she surprises me once again. Just imagine how Johnny Boy feels about that! In an interview with a Conservative radio host today, she claims that by constantly bringing up William Ayers (and now apparently Jeremiah Wright), the media getting on her case is akin to infringement of her First Amendment rights. Let’s let Governor Moosebrains speak for herself in this direct quote: “If [the media] convince enough voters that that is negative campaigning, for me to call Barack Obama out on his associations,” Palin told host Chris Plante, “then I don’t know what the future of our country would be in terms of First Amendment rights and our ability to ask questions without fear of attacks by the mainstream media.”
This woman is incredibly fucking dumb. A doorknob has a higher IQ…in fact, it’s MENSA compared to her.
Remember from grade school (they have those in Alaska, Sarah Baby; I know this for a fact because recently I’ve met quite a few incredibly intelligent folks from our 49th State. So what’s your excuse?) the old addage of Free speech does not mean you can yell “Fire!” in a crowded theater. In other words, there are certain times where your rights do not extend as far as you think. You cannot accuse someone of something in the media without evidence to back it up, or it becomes a little thing known as “slander”. So let’s just say someone accused you of being woefully being unprepared for ANY public office and that you have an incredibly narrow and shockingly shallow understanding of the US Constitution, you’d have to prove that they were wrong. Gee, I wonder what would happen if that actually occurred? I think you might just lose that argument.
What is even more frightening about this woman’s clear lack of a functioning brain, is the fact that she also is missing another key point of the First Amendment. The Press (which has been guaranteed freedom under Amendment One) has the RIGHT to criticize you Sarah Baby…THAT IS exercising Freedom of Speech, not abridging YOUR right to speak…but once again, speaking in public within bounds. Conceivably your accusation or Senator McCain’s accusation that Senator Obama is a Socialist or a Communist is SLANDER. If he chose to, he could sue you (and would almost certainly win), and you can kiss little Piper’s college education fund goodbye.
More frightening is this: there are people in this country who will DEFEND her for this! Not only that, the mindset of the current Republican Party is such that this is perfectly in line with their reasoning. Please, I KNOW there are real Conservatives and Libertarians in the Republican Party who have no great love for what has happened to their Party. Please take back your Party, give Americans a real, intelligent, and viable political movement and PUT THIS WOMAN OUT OF OUR MISERY.
Oh…one final thing Sarah Baby: this is an OPINION piece, just like the rest of the posts in this blog. I even state that fact in the “About This Place” tab just over on the right. You are an ignorant, dumb shit Sarah Palin. If that offends you, well it’s too bad.
It’s my opinion, and I have a right to say it. In fact, it’s guaranteed.
