Sarah Palin: “Thanksgiving is for Real Americans Not Indians”

Give this a careful read:
http://www.freewoodpost.com/2013/11/21/sarah-palin-thanksgiving-is-for-real-americans-not-indians/

Sarah Palin: “Thanksgiving is for Real Americans Not Indians”

............

Palin’s response was astounding, “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.”

The station quickly went to commercial break and Palin was gone when the show resumed. .........

37. I really think Satire pieces belong in the "HUMOR" group--not in GD.

But I don't rule the world!

I don't think it's fun or funny to "snare" people who skim an article and get suckered into thinking it is real.

It's kind of mean--it mocks the person who took the time to read and reply.

Those arrows don't fire themselves.



In another arrow story: Since the time of the ancient Gods, blacksmiths and fletchers knew how to make arrows that would return to the shooters. When asked why they never made any for their costumers, they all looked at the asker in disbelief and replied "Because they are too stupid and would not get out of the way as it returned! We would lose a bunch of our customers due to that stupidity!"

For one thing, she'd never call our North Slope Native people Inuits. That's what they're called in Canada. She might have called them Inupiats or Eskimos, if she was being politically incorrect, but not Inuits.

I knew it was satire almost immediately.

It belongs clearly labeled in tupper ware where it can not spoil my unwitting sense of humor.

And only placed and dispensed in a forum clearly labeled satire, comedy or humor so their is no contamination with other things unfunny or serious.

Palin is ignorant and racist. So let's make up ignorant and racist shit and pretend she said it!

Why? It doesn't make a point that hasn't been made a million times, it doesn't illuminate. It's not funny, unless one is amused that they got people to think it was real, like some morning show DJ practical joke.

Last edited Wed Nov 27, 2013, 11:59 PM - Edit history (1)

Aren't you suppose to be educated before you become a journalist, or politician? Oh wait! Scratch that. Some politicians were pig farmers or car sales men first. However, journalists? They don't have to be, right? They simply learn how to make money by trashing people. =)

But seriously Palin, the Aboriginals taught the "christians" how to be thankful, oh yeah, and how to bathe. Those are two good things that were "taken" from us and we're thankful for. We were seriously closer to "our Creator" before you all came along and called us heathens. Quite simply you all only called us heathens because you couldn't understand our language so your people "bullied" us into learning English so you could understand what we're saying.

Obviously from your little uneducated rant there, you have not yet learned how to be thankful, so I will excuse you this time. =) I can only hope for your sake that you've learned how to bathe.

You see Palin, that's why Pocahontas was stolen from her people, because John Smith wanted his people to learn her "Godly ways" which she learned from her own people long before contact (Yes, she was real. She's not just a creation of Disney).

So it would do yourself some justice by educating yourself on "our ways" before you talk from your behind... as usual... or perhaps you don't know how. I shall understand then. After all, "A drunk can be sobered; The ignorant can be educated; but there's no hope for the stupid", sadly.

Warm regards,
