Sarah Palin hits pols, media on Newtown [View all]

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin — who was harshly criticized for her response to the January 2011 mass shooting in Tucson, Ariz. — is telling Americans in the wake of Newtown to put their faith in God and ignore political and media “elites.”

“First, all truly is hopeless if your faith and hope are put in any politician or media elite,” the Fox News contributor wrote on Facebook on Monday night. “That is because the average person is more truthful and responsible than the average politician or media elite. Those who let themselves be terribly disappointed in political leaders as they ignore real problems, aided along with a complicit media bombarding us with irrelevant distractions in order to avoid facing the reality of a fallen culture, should know those distractions are to hide from a finger pointing to the main contributors to much of our problem.”


Palin’s post, “The Only Hope,” asked Americans to place more emphasis on their faith.

“Unspeakable evil slammed America in the beautiful little town of Newtown, Connecticut, just days ago,” Palin wrote. “No words can express the collective shock and sorrow shared by Americans who know the murder of innocent children is the most horrendous crime imaginable. The Connecticut state motto, ‘Qui transtulit sustinet,’ promises that only God can sustain us.”
