Sarah Palin’s NRA Speech: Politicians Exploiting Tragedy, Hollywood Promoting ‘Gun Grabs’ (VIDEO)

Speaking at the National Rifle Association’s convention this Friday, Sarah Palin claimed that President Obama “writes the book on exploiting tragedy” in regards to recent mass shootings in order to limit the freedoms of law-abiding people.

Lamenting the “poodle-skirted cheerleader” media, Palin attacked Obama for making grieving parents “backdrops in his perpetual campaign-style press events.” She went on to say that politicians practice the “politics of emotion” in regards to their response to tragic events.

As the speech progressed, Palin transitioned into an awkward and seemingly unfocused rant against New York’s mayor Michael Bloomberg and his tobacco initiative, pulling out what looked to be a container of chewing tobacco proclaiming, “Don’t make me do it!”

With clear religious undertones and showing a complete disregard for church-state separation, Palin said that “freedom will destroy itself if it is not exercised within some sort of moral framework, some body of shared beliefs, some spiritual heritage that is transmitted through the church, the family, the school.”

    I don’t know why I torture myself like this, listening to twelve minutes of that voice that is like fingernails on a chalkboard when I know that nothing is going to come out of her mouth that resembles facts or logic. As always she presents distortions and half truths as factual. She accuses those with whom she disagrees of the very thing that she herself wants to do. It is the NRA and their Teapub allies who want to destroy this nation and everyone with half a brain knows it. Of course Sarah has to be excused since it has always been obvious from the first time she spoke in public that she lacks a brain completely.

    They always fail to mention the Part about the “Well regulated militia” who are supposed to be armed, not 5 year olds.

    Why the heck are you still a viable spokesperson for anything? I see that you went through many colleges, without an undergraduates degree….then you received a Masters. WTF.
