Just one day after the horrific sniper attack in Dallas, while the country is still trying to make sense of the unimaginable murders of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, insane racist Sarah Palin decided to jump on her Facebook page and share her deranged opinions about the events this past week, and give Black Lives Matter her brand of sage advice on how to fall in line.
I’m sure it comes as no surprise that she might have something ridiculous to say – some may have even expected it to be so ridiculous that we might be able to get a good chuckle and make fun of her like we normally do, but no… This time, it was not at all funny. It was pure hatred and if there are people out there that take her seriously, she probably made matters worse by saying things like this:
BlackLivesMatter is a farce and hyphenating America destroys us.
Shame on our culture’s influencers who would stir contention and division that could lead to evil such as that in Dallas.
Shame on politicians and pundits giving credence to thugs rioting against police officers and the rule of law in the name of “‘peaceful protests.’ It is a farce. #BlackLivesMatter is a farce.
It doesn’t end there.
Black Lives Matter? Yes – more than BLM ‘protestors’ can grasp, as evidenced by their self-destructive provocateurism.
Why let the damaging false narrative prevail if you know it is a lie?! Speak up! Join me in refusing to go willingly with society trying to crown deceptive political correctness the victor.
It starts getting worse after that.
Self-descriptions that put any race in front of being an American are now used to further divide our nation. It’s time to acknowledge you’re either an American under our system of equality, law and order – and traditional patriotic spirit – or you’re not. nock off the hyphenation of who we are. And knock off the shoulder chip if you’ve let ‘leaders’ burden you with it through their example that sadly capitalizes on division for untoward purposes. That chip is crushing the people’s hope.
Comments like the ones above are what help to “crush people’s hope” because what she’s basically telling the Black Lives Matter movement and all people who don’t fit into her white agenda is: Fall in line. Do what your “white masters” tell you to do. And I’m sorry, but the “traditional patriotic spirit” as she calls it, is not one that I or any black person I know would want to be a part of. That’s the “traditional patriotic spirit” that has put us where we are today.
Sarah Palin is not the only one spreading bigoted rhetoric this week. Former Republican lawmaker, Joe Walsh, went on a Twitter rant the likes of which I’ve personally never seen and hope to never see again. Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick went on a rager of his own, calling BLM protesters “hypocrites” for running away from gunfire. And the hatred doesn’t stop there, as I’m sure you’ve probably seen on your own social media feeds.
These people need to get their heads out of their asses. This way of thinking is not going to help anyone “win” or make things better for America. The only way we can do better is to stand united and stop the fighting. Like the late, great Maya Angelou once said, “Hate: It has caused a lot of problems in this world, but it has not solved one yet.”
