Palin discusses the true meaning of Thanksgiving... (Updated)

my niece had this posted on her FB page and I thought I would share it. I tried to track down the quote, allegedly appearing on the FB page of George Matusich. I went to his page didn't find anything but a lot of nice dog pics, encouragement to adopt dogs not shop for them AND a lot of anti-Obama stuff. Can't find a link to prove she said it, but also, can't find anything saying she didn't.

Thanks to BlueState, , I've learned this is satire and available here:
http://www.freewoodpost.com/2013/11/21/sarah-palin-thanksgiving-is-for-real-americans-not-indians/



"Thanksgiving is for real Americans not Indians. We founded this Christian nation. Why if it wasn’t for the God-fearing pilgrims, the natives would still be running around in loin cloths shooting at things with their arrows. The gracious host tried to save her by stating, “Surely, you’re aware that the Indians were the native population of this country and were driven from their homes by the European settlers. This further incited Palin and her rant continued, “I’ll tell ya what I know. I know that these tribes do a lot of whining. I mean they got special rights up the wazzoo. They have those casinos all over the place. Seems to me they got a great deal. If they would just put down the bottle and whatever they’re smoking in those peace pipes and get a job like the rest of us, they’d be alright. I see it all the time in Alaska with the Inuit. They just don’t want to join the rest of us. They’re still hunting whale for gosh sake.”
" ~ Sarah Palin November 2013 — with George Matusich.

5. Fucking oblivious idiot with her coffee chat ...

Ugh she reminds me SO MUCH of my former manager .... thinks she's saying something profound when all she's doing is spouting word salad, 100% unaware of what's happening around her.

3. It's obviously satire, she isn't nearly that cogent in her speech.
