Why They Burned Sarah Palin’s Church

// Last updated on //

The media attacks on Sarah have been endless both during and after the campaign. Some have admitted they were complete lies and distortions but continue to exploit Sarah. The derisive nature of the media breeds the anger and hatred evident in this attack on Sarah’s church.

The media is clearly to blame for exploiting this woman, her family and innocent children  in every twisted way possible, and now they may as well have lit the match that sparked the fire. And the lies don’t end there.

For those that think the media’s words are only that, read this.

    “The media is clearly to blame for exploiting this woman, her family and innocent children in every distorted way possible…”
    ______________________________________________________________________

    The media was spoon-fed the “hockey mom”, the “pitbull with lipstick”, the “Aw shucks, Gee golly, Yup, yup!” image of Palin.
    Palin and the RNC paraded her children everywhere she went, exploiting them to the hilt. INCLUDING waving her special needs child around when it was convenient.

    McCain and the Republicans handed this woman and her family to the media on a silver platter, and, in a burst of overblown ego, she went willingly.

    Don’t blame reporters for being suckered into a cutesy story, only to find and expose a truckload of BS.

    …LMAO….If the contributors to this site weren’t so repulsive,…you’d be hilarious! Now run along and cling to your pathetic guns and religion. LOL~
    Sarah Palin is an insult to real women and an even greater joke to intellect. But I have no doubt her frothing at the mouth worshippers are even more poorly educated, informed, and savvy than she is. Your religion has exposed you for what you all are,..hater-filled, intolerant and divisive old dinosaurs….and guess what?….You’re going extinct, too…

    mmmmmmm…and evolution grand?..oh that’s right….your species isn’t capable of higher thought….

    Enjoy the next 8 years…..

    …you deserve every minute…

    Sara Palin spewed so much meanness and divisiveness during the campaign, I guess its karma. Maybe the culprit is someone who paled around w/ terrorists, isn’t a “real” american, or worst a muslim. I doubt, but that won’t stop Sarah Palin from shouting hate.

    You can’t blame the media for the words of contempt and bald-faced lies that came out of Caribou Barbie’s mouth in front of millions of people. You can’t blame the media for her palling around with a foreign thug (and probable murderer) who attacks innocent women, claiming they’re witches. You can’t blame the media for her palling around with a vicious anti-Semite. You can’t blame the media for her — twice — delivering words of goodwill and encouragement to a political organization whose founder and icon vomited extreme hatred for America. You can’t blame the media for her inability to answer simple questions.

    I couldn’t care less about who bought what clothes or how much pork she did or didn’t get from the Federal government as Governor. What I do care about is that this clueless, self-righteous holy roller wants to do to America what the Taliban did to Afghanistan and the ayatollahs did to Iran. The media had nothing to do with that.

    Caribou Barbie is a danger to American freedom and liberty.

    Just in case I wasn’t clear: none of that is an excuse for arson. I hope those who torched her church are brought to justice.

    I don’t “get” this article. The title is misleading. It doesn’t offer any explanation for or even any analysis or speculation as to “why they burned Sarah Palin’s church” at all. I wish it did. I DO want to hear a conservative voice about it. That’s why I came here. But…nada. If I didn’t know any better, I’d think the article was accusing the media itself of burning it, bizarrely.

    palin agreed to be exploited of her own free will!
    a 2 million dollar church in Wassila and its still the meth capital of Alaska. That said the valley that wasilla is in breath taking. A pegan like myself they wouldn’t let live there.
    GOD BLESS AMERICA (which ever god that might be)

    So, let me get this straight. The liberals responding to this article not only admit they fell for the lies about Sarah, but that the media lies justify burning down a house of God.

    Wow. No wonder why garbage like the Huffington Post sells.

    Jersey Bob just hit the nail on the head with his comment above. Because I am a woman I was accused of being jealous of her if I said anything against her.

    @James
    I too wanted to read something. But it is just nonsense. Whomever burned the church is to blame, not the media and not liberals. Further, I do not accept the story line that any and everything printed about Palin was a lie, most of it was true and most of it was ignored in favor of nonsense stories like the ridiculous amount of money spent on her. Her husband WAS a member of a traitorous group, she WAS involved with them and they DID say they wanted to promote republicans in order to further their cause, she DID bill for per Diem she shouldn’t have, she DID have a house built invisibly, she DID accept questionable gifts and she DID not know anything about our country and our politics, even not to wear a scarf with BLUE DONKEYS on it while campaigning as a republican. She DID allow her non-elected husband to get involved in governing, she DID not know what a VP does, she DID lie, smear and distort to trade on hate and to divide this country. None of this is the media’s fault and the media did not do due diligence in following it. Next time anyone runs for public office, I intend to pay very close attention to their qualifications. She should never have been on the ballot and it is a grievous insult that McCain and the republicans would put her up there. That said, I do not believe for a minute any of this has anything to do with why the church was torched. More likely, it being her church just brought it to the cretins’ attention.

    Isn’t it funny how when things like this happen to so-called “liberals” the right-wing hate machine says they deserved it and that god is just punishing them for their evil ways. Hmmm. Food for thought. Karma’s a bitch isn’t it? This woman is an atrocity. It’s already been mentioned on here and there are videos to prove that she happily attended some wacky ceremony with a preacher trying to purge Palin of witchcraft against her. This is after the same man had some poor woman chased out of her town in his own country claiming she was a witch and having the townspeople descend upon her. Anyone who supports this kind of nonsense is insane. Religion has gone too far. If anything, the media was not doing their duty in vetting this woman. They didn’t report about this preacher, they didn’t report about she and her husband’s dealings with the Alaska Independence Party, there were plenty of ethics violations on her part but none of this was reported in mainstream media.

    I am just so thankful that this woman is not our VP. She’s clueless and incompetent. I wish she’d stop rearing her head in the news as her 15 minutes was over hours ago.

    Neither the media nor the Dems had to lift a finger or utter a word of disdain about Palin and for sure the main media didn’t even investigate anything about her anti-United States treasonous affiliation with the Alaska Independence Party, who want to secede from the union, that alone should have disqualified her from running at all as the VP. SHE UNDID HERSELF!
    Too bad about the church but that was probably done by someone close to her whom she had slighted or something.

    I peek back in and see more misled liberal sheep. Wow. One clown thinks the Independence Party story was genuine news not liberal distortion. Another fool thinks words she never heard, but were exaggerated beyond belief by the liberal media justify the burning of a church.

    Then they accuse this site of being conservative? There are liberal articles all over the site, but the sheep don’t even look.

    The article was about how the media fabricated and exaggerated attacks on Sarah, and all you are doing is proving the article is dead on right. You all were lied to, and you are using those lies to justify burning down a house of God.

    Nuts all. Oh, sheep. Sorry.

    BAAAAAAA.

    Actually it was not the media, it was God who burned this sanctuary of Satan down – He sent Elijah to call fire out of heaven. Looks like he did a pretty good job….

    @sheepinthehouse – If you read the comment I made two hours before yours, you’d see that I said Palin’s terrible behavior and vitriolic speeches were still no excuse for the crime of arson. Exactly what part of that don’t you get?

    And please enlighten us: you talk about “media lies”. What lies did they tell about her? Tell us just one.

    As a liberal that tends to find the Huffington fairly poor, I realize that one has to take everything they say with a grain of salt.

    Much of the media is evil in America on both sides. They will do anything for a profit and call it news, liberal or conservative. Huffington is so much worse because, unlike a legitimate reporting outlet like the New York Times or Wall Street Journal, they do not have to answer for their political form of comedy.

    Still, I love their comments section. Best on the Internet. To heck with the articles, they are just to make the site look like a news outlet, when it really is little more than a liberal chat room.

    As far as Sarah goes? I don’t trust anyone, so I doubt much of they hype was true, and no church deserves to be burned down because of the hatred of some nut towards one single member.

    To be fair, though, we honestly do not know who burned the church. It is under investigation. Still, after reading the comments here, my money is on Aner. He seems to be a few cards shy of a full deck.

    The church has a history of trying to convert gay people to become heterosexual and other strange practices that create enemies. The burning of the church probably had something to do with that and not Palin.

    The New Testament never mentions the media…there must be another reason for the fire…

    Ezekiel 25:17

    The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

    You left out “you becha”…

    I found Palin – like most high-profile RW Repubs – she’s a PHONY. What we saw was a graduate of GOPAC’s Stealth Candidate school. Scarborough mapped out her campaign after hearing the 3rd installment of the Couric interview (or was it the SNL skit, where Tina Fey quoted Palin in full and accurately – and got HUGE laughs?)

    His (GOPAC’s) plan:
    1) Write ONE speech, and give the same speech at every stop, until the media and your supporters have it memorized.
    2) Restrict access to RW (hate) radio and Fox News – while denouncing all other media as liberal/corrupt
    3) DO NOT talk about issues – stick with character assassination and religious ferver.
    4) play on FEAR and GEEED…

    He had a couple of other parts, but the bottom line is that, from that day forward – she followed the above plan to the letter. The part that led to her undoing was that Scarborough was running in a DEEP RED district, while she had to run nationwide. She really SCARED all the women (and alot of men) in the “collar counties” around Philly (where I live), losing the state by 2-to-1… The rest – as they say – is history!

    ;o)

    In addition to the witchcraft stuff – which scared most normal people, while thrilling the snake-handling crowd – it was the anti-Semitic stuff that got to me (non-practicing Jew)

    I don’t know if it was this African visiting preacher, or the church’s regular minister, but the sermon was about how “we” had to turn over our economy to Christians, and take it away from the ISRAELITES who currently control it!

    Shades of Elders of Zion! This church is pushing the “Jew bankers” myth…

    We will all do better when the media goes back to reporting the news in an unbiased fashion.
