Palin Blasts Mainstream Media ‘Herd,’ ‘Naive’ Pundits for Opposing Trump’s Temporary Muslim Ban

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin blasted the “hypocritical and/or naive pundits” in the mainstream press and GOP establishment for trying to destroy Donald Trump after he proposed a temporary ban on Muslims entering the United States after the San Bernardino terrorist attack.

In a Facebook post this week, Palin said the “herd mentality” is “running rampant with hypocritical and/or naive pundits trying to crush Donald Trump because he’s committed to clobbering the bad guys, and putting the good guys first. Trump’s temporary ban proposal is in the context of doing all we can to force the Feds to acknowledge their lack of strategy to deal with terrorism.”

Palin ripped the Obama administration for having “no plan to reform our flawed immigration vetting process. They cannot even utter the term Islamic Fundamentalism. They will not declare war on ISIS. While the media twists and turns words, conservatives who propose action to combat the real threat facing America are demonized while the namby-pamby milquetoast politicians get a pass to go along their unaccountable merry way.”

“A broken system allowed terrorists to come to our home and slaughter Americans. A bold, non-politician candidate calls for a pause in this flawed bureaucratic program so it can be fixed, to make sure it doesn’t happen again,” she continued. “That’s commonsense, which is why the media and spineless pundits attack it.”

In 2009, when asked about profiling Muslims, Palin said she was “all for it.” She pointed out that she got “beat up by the Left but understood by the commonsense Right, and I’ll say it again: if it saves innocent lives, ‘profile away!'”

“When information shows someone comes to America after being in a radical Islamic stronghold, and embraces the Death Cult’s ideology that mandates butchering the innocent – then we are right in calling for shucking the political correctness that is fundamentally transforming America, and finally putting the security of innocent Americans FIRST,” Palin emphatically wrote. “Slow this down via Fed intervention (it’s the Federal Government’s first and foremost job – national security!) until and unless we have a plan in place to sufficiently vet, AND to utterly and completely destroy the terrorists. (Note to President: start with letting our United States Military, the greatest and most ethical military power on earth, do its job.)”:

The Feds are talking the talk, saying the same thing I said in ’09 with their “If you see something, say something!” profiling directive. The Feds have always banned whomever they choose from entering the U.S., they have the ability, we’ve given them the right, and they have a track record proving it. Trump’s idea isn’t new. (President Carter banned Iranians, rounded up Iranian students, “profiled” and targeted a populace based on religious ideology in 1979-1980, and was PRAISED by the Left.)

“Because the feds have said repeatedly that they don’t profile. But you certainly can. And hey, that gives them cover: We were just checking out a report of suspicious activity, Mohammad.”

A neighbor of San Bernardino terrorists, out of fear of being accused of racial profiling, reportedly did not call police after seeing suspicious activity around what was discovered to be a terrorist bomb-making facility. And on Friday’s Breitbart News Daily, Department of Homeland Security whistleblower Philip Haney revealed that the federal government pulled the plug on an investigation that may have stopped the San Bernardino terrorist attack because it was more concerned about the civil rights and liberties about the civil rights and liberties of foreign Islamic groups with terrorist ties than the safety and security of Americans”

Palin also praised Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr.’s “commonsense” proposal to encourage “students to exercise their constitutional right to bear arms to defend themselves and their fellow man against terrorists. That’s commonsense, which is why his courageous, wise advice is now attacked.”

“Come together, America, to focus on proactive solutions to protect our children from terrorism, after 7 years of neglect,” Palin concluded. ” Ignore the White House as it spews talking point rhetoric accusing Trump (thus suggesting all who question their wrongheadedness) of being ‘unamerican.’ Yet it is their leader declaring his need to ‘fundamentally transform America’ because he so wrongly sees our exceptional nation’s foundation as fatally flawed. Now THAT is unamerican.”
