But the founder of the Alaskan Independence Party does. So why has Sarah Palin been palling around for the last decade with people who hate America, a party whose platform is for Alaska to “become a separate and independent nation” competely apart from the United States?
Why did she address– earlier this year(!)– a convention whose slogan is “Alaska First!”? What happened to “Country First”? Why was she talking to a group of secessionists about Alaska’s “great promise to be a self-sufficient state“? (Those are her own words.) Why was her husband, Todd Palin, a member of the Alaskan Independence Party from 1995 to 2002? And does anybody really know what’s going on up there in Alaska or what Sarah Palin really believes about America? This is not guilt by association, this is guilt by direct advocacy. This woman could be president. Watch the video.
UPDATE: David Talbot at Salon.com has a fantastic article on the un-American activities of Todd and Sarah Palin. Apparently, in 1993, the Alaskan Independence Party persuaded the government of Iran(!!!) to sponsor AIP founder Joe Vogler’s anti-American speech before the United Nations. An absolute must read.
“My government is my worst enemy. I’m going to fight them with any means at hand.”
This was former revolutionary terrorist Bill Ayers back in his old Weather Underground days, right? Imagine what Sarah Palin is going to do with this incendiary quote as she tears into Barack Obama this week.
Only one problem. The quote is from Joe Vogler, the raging anti-American who founded the Alaska Independence Party. Inconveniently for Palin, that’s the very same secessionist party that her husband, Todd, belonged to for seven years and that she sent a shout-out to as Alaska governor earlier this year. (“Keep up the good work,” Palin told AIP members. “And God bless you.”)
