Oh, the horror.... the horror. Actually, it really didn't take much.
I joined Sarah Palin's Facebook page initially months ago out of curiosity. You know, the same reason you pay a buck to go into the Circus Side Show tent to see freaks and oddities, or the same reason you can't stare away from a horrific car accident.
But yesterday's craptastic Palin entry, and her sheeple's comments, took me to a very dark place... the point of no return... the rebuttal comment.
Sarah's Facebook ghostwriter wrote:
...going on to cite a Newsmax article. Newsmax!Soldier pay decreases in the midst of overspending elsewhere and government union pay raises. Seriously? What are our priorities?
Oh, the outrage! Comments flying left and right! Or right and righter.
That damn, Kenyan reverse Robin Hood! How dare he!!! Well, I couldn't just sit there dumbfounded at how many stupid people there are in the country. So I thought I'd edumacate them:"We should cut his pay to unemployed. IMPEACH HIM.""How can they decrease it any more...They are living at poverty level now...Grrr!""Rid the government reps that are criminals! Including our president that is not a citizen!""Can't freaken believe it!! What an a-s hole. Take from the very people that keep us safe and give to the crooks!!! Politicians , unions , special interest etc... I am so mad. Obama has to go !!!"
"Uh, you do know that the soldiers are getting a pay INCREASE this year, don't you? Maybe you should do some research instead of taking ½ term Sarah's lies as fact." complete with an Army Times link.
I guess that second sentence was enough for the Palin Facebook Gestapo to delete my comment and ban me from posting there ever again. It took about 30 seconds. But I doubt my comment would have survived even without the "½ term Sarah" dig. Pretty amazing to think that her FB page administrators are monitoring comments that closely.
Why does Sarah Palin hate the First Amendment?
Anyway... badge of honor I suppose. Here's fun little game: why don't you head on over to Palin's FB page, join, and politely disagree with whatever you like. See how long it takes you to have your comment deleted. Then join this page and relay what egregious, unthinkable comment got you booted. Keep those Palin police on their toes!
