Sarah Palin Tells Obama “Stop Playing the Race Card”


“I have a dream.” With a single phrase, Martin Luther King, Jr. joined Jefferson and Lincoln in the ranks of men who have shaped modern America. The speech, of the same name, was ranked the top American speech of the 20th century in a 1999 poll of scholars of public address. The public speech delivered by American civil rights activist Martin Luther King, Jr. on August 28, 1963, on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, happened during the March on Washington in which he called for an end to racism in the United States.

Beginning with a reference to the Emancipation Proclamation which freed millions of slaves, the speech was a defining moment of the American Civil Rights Movement.

On the popular blog site Cheezburger.com, there is a post forwarded from Sarah Palin. The post begins wishing everyone a “Happy MLK, Jr. Day!” then continues onto share with her readers an excerpt for Dr. king’s famous “I have a dream” speech. Palin the continues in her posting on Facebook to write that, “Mr. President, in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. and all who commit to ending any racial divide, no more playing the race card.”

So, being the good patriot that she is, Sarah Palin decided to pick Martin Luther King Day to criticize the president. Playing the race card is an idiomatic phrase that refers to exploitation of either racist or anti-racist attitudes by accusing others of racism.

“There’s no doubt that there are some folks who just really dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black president,” Obama told The New Yorker in its January 27 publication.

“I still have a dream, a dream deeply rooted in the American dream – one day this nation will rise up and live up to its creed, ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.’ I have a dream . . .” For employment opportunities at the New Yorker, click here.

    Since she quit her post in Alaska Palin hasn’t run for public office but still plays the part of politician who calls her constituents “fans.” What exactly does she do other than essentially proposition her self and image to the highest bidder? Sounds like Sarah is America’s highest paid escort! See how down and dirty she’ll get for the money at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/06/ecstasy-of-sarah-palin_15.html

    Sarah Palin resigned to free her Administration from the paralysis caused by having to defend against a never-ending flood of fear-instigated bogus ethics complaints, and to help America out of a very bad situation

    she completed 3 full legislative sessions before resigning – and all her promises to the Alaskan people fulfilled in that time … you could even think of it as an athlete completing a middle distance race 1 lap ahead of all the other runners! .. , or like a person completing a 3 hour examination in only 2 hours! ….. so efficient and productive was her time as Governor

    in fact what Gov Sarah Palin produced for her Alaskan constituents in 3 full legislative sessions, most Governors would not be able to deliver in two full terms!

    She is a marvel …one of a kind indeed … a Gift to America by Divine Providence, in her hour of extreme need …



    here she is with that other Leader who put the welfare and interests of fellow Americans before his own career … just like she did

    These 2 MIGHTY Conservative Leaders both put the interests & welfare of their fellow Americans B4 their own careers ~> pic.twitter.com/QnN78xPqP0

    Sarah Palin was speaking for multitudes of Americans when she asked Obama to knock it off

    I think this recent playing of the Racecard by Obama is a desperate move to try and stop the continued slide of his approval ratings

    Obama is going after the white guilt vote again … but sorry LIAR in Chief, white Americans voted for you Nov 2012 in numbers great enough for you to defeat a white man.

    It isn’t your skin color that’s causing you to tank, it is your LIES to the American Public, many of whom are:

    * receiving letters informing them that Healthcare insurance policies they LIKE have been cancelled

    * being forced to buy more expensive policies, which they can’t afford, and which cover services they neither need nor want

    * having their employment hours reduced because of the fallout from this Obamacare BULLSCHMIDT legislation

    * extremely anxious about giving ANY of their personal information to the BULLSCHMIDT Obamacare website because experts are warning them it is INSECURE

    and then there’s that whole thing about TRAMPLING the 4th Amendment Rights of law-abiding American Citizens

    Basically, Americans are PI$$ED off at you and WISH YOU WERE GONE

    I am with you. Brunt has an axe to grind with Sarah Palin and Mitt Rooney.

    Remember about Mitt and what he told us.Romney told us about this move to build Jeeps in China during the campaign and was called a liar. Romney is owed an apology!

    Fiat and Chrysler reached an agreement with Guangzhou Automobile Group to expand production and sales of Jeep cars in China. After the deal, Fiat/Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne said that Jeep output in China may double in the near future.

    The two sister automakers expect to build at least 100,000 Jeeps in the coming years as they enter the partnership.
