Sarah Palin – Congressional Republicans Are Abusers And Conservatives Are Their Battered Wives
Tea Party favorite Sarah Palin wrote an “exclusive” article for conservative website Breitbart lashing out at the GOP establishment, Paul Ryan, and the House Freedom Caucus – AND she even managed to get firearms into the discussion.
Likening herself and other “grassroots conservatives” to battered wives, she begins with a strange analogy.
“They did it again. But like a battered wife, we keep going back because every four years they bring us flowers, beg our forgiveness, and swear they’ll never hit us again,” she writes. “The GOP establishment in Congress is our abuser. We can’t hide the black eyes any more. The whole neighborhood knows.”
Her complaint? The passage of the $1.14 trillion spending bill passed by Congress last week: “The Democrats are gloating. Obama thanked Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) effusively – and why shouldn’t he? Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) couldn’t have given him more.”
Continuing her analogy, she writes: “And where was the famed House Freedom Caucus – those stalwart conservatives who spearheaded Boehner’s ouster? They were shrugging and handing us a bag of frozen peas to put on our black eye. If we’re lucky, maybe they’ll call 911 for us when the beating starts up again. This is shameful, and it has to end. No mas!”
She goes on to explain how she and other “grassroots conservatives gave the GOP historic electoral victories because they promised us they would stop Obama’s fundamental transformation of America. Instead, they abetted it. They are Obama’s accomplices.”
She continues with a laundry list of betrayals at the hands of Congressional Republicans, writing: “With this omnibus bill, they broke every promise they made to us. Every single one. They’ve reached a level of brazen duplicity previously known only to Democrats.”
- Obamacare? It’s fully funded.
- Planned Parenthood, which was caught red-handed haggling over the sale of dead babies? It’s funded too.
- Obama’s illegal executive amnesty? Funded.
- Illegal alien sanctuary cities? Funded.
- Visas for un-vetted Muslim migrants (“refugees”) to resettle in America? Funded.
- Obama’s green energy crony capitalism? Funded.
- Tax credits for illegal aliens? Funded.
- H-2B visas to replace American workers with cheap unskilled foreign workers? Yep, that’s in there too.
- What about funds for the fence that we so desperately need on our southern border? Nope, sorry, they couldn’t find any money for that.
She goes on to accuse the Congressional GOP establishment of wanting to throw the election to Hillary Clinton.
The Congressional GOP establishment doesn’t care about winning national elections. As far as they’re concerned, Hillary can have the White House – just so long as they can keep their cushy jobs on Capitol Hill.
In fact, having a Democrat in the White House is probably good for business. They don’t want to have to lead on anything – they’ve had ample opportunity to do so! – and a Democrat president is a nice foil for them. They can enjoy the status quo, enjoy all the crony capital cash, enjoy the perks of office, and as the country continues to crash and burn, they can tell the folks back home it’s all President Hillary’s fault.
After praising Tea Party Republicans, Palin returns to her analogy and closes by vowing to fight back against the Republican establishment.
“We’re going to make our abusers leave,” she writes, adding: “We’re not going to let them hit us again.”
“It’s time to kick our abusers out of the House, change the locks, and keep a loaded shotgun next to the bed.”
