Now, I’m foreign, so perhaps I’m not too clear on this, but doesn’t it strike you as a bit funny that a non New Yorker feels like she needs to put New Yorkers (you know, the ones whose city was actually attacked and who still aren’t ‘real’ Americans) in their place?
What strikes me as a bit funny is that someone with such a well-publicized face gets away with being such a racist snot and covers it up by telling other people how to feel about something that happened a decade ago. Across a continent from anywhere she was at the time. And what haggers said.
It’s well established that Sarah Palin is a moron. What I don’t understand is the broader spectrum of tolerance for bigotry against Muslims in this country. Where is political correctness when you need it? Why is there so much complacency over fear of Islam? Before 2001, the only thing I ever remember hearing about Islam in the form of ignorant commentary are things like, “Isn’t that a peaceful religion?” and various vague references to Mohammed and a rock. It is not okay to be complacent about anti-Muslim bigotry (or any bigotry, duh).
Voosie is much more eloquent than me. No person makes me more angry and rageful than this fucking shithead.
Sarah Palin, like most ignorant, myopic and bigoted assholes in the country have never, ever cared about New York City, a place that represents diversity and cross-culturalism that makes shitwads like her, and shitwads all over this country, clutch their pearls and hover around Times Square and eat at the Olive Garden.
Meanwhile, the rest of us, New Yorkers and beyond, are continued to be subjected to haterade by these people who continue to use the events of 9/11 as a springboard to explain their bigotry. When are we, as a nation, going to stand up and tell all these fucking morons to SHUT THE FUCK UP? WHEN? It is UNACCEPTABLE.
