In regard to the Middle East, Palin sounds just like a run-of-the-mill neocon. “I believe that the Jewish settlements should be allowed to be expanded upon, because that population of Israel is, is going to grow,” Palin told Barbara Walters last November. “More and more Jewish people will be flocking to Israel in the days and weeks and months ahead. And I don’t think that the Obama administration has any right to tell Israel that the Jewish settlements cannot expand.”
Once again, Palin gets it wrong. In fact, people are deserting Israel in record numbers, especially educated professionals “who could not be integrated in Israel because of the unsuitability of their professions to the Israeli work force.” Others are leaving because the country is ruled by insane warmongers who are determined to start another war, this time with Iran. Palin supports the Israeli policy of stealing Palestinian land. She also apparently supports the Israeli bombing of civilians in Gaza.
Sarah Palin is a neocon Stepford wife. As Justin Raimondo noted back in November of 2008, Sarah had her head stuffed with neocon talking points in the lead-up to the election when she was John McCain’s running mate. “Strapped to a chair and forced to read a year’s worth of Weekly Standards out loud while having the audio version of the complete works of Norman Podhoretz piped into her ears, poor pistol-packin’ Sarah was no match for her neocon interrogators, who ironed all those right-wing populist quirks out of her malleable mindset. Now, Sarah, repeat after me: jury nullification is nuts, forget about Alaskan independence, and always, always remember, you hate Ron Paul!”
Raimondo made his albeit sarcastic point in response to a report in the London Telegraph. It stated: “Comments by the governor of Alaska in her first television interview, in which she said NATO may have to go to war with Russia and took a tough line on Iran’s nuclear program, were the result of two weeks of briefings by neoconservatives.”
War with Russia and attacking Iran? How is such warmongering insanity compatible with the Tea Party movement? Are Tea Party supporters ready to get behind ever increasing Pentagon budgets (more than $500 billion in 2009) in order to combat terrorists created by the CIA and Mossad?
