Sarah Palin’s attempt to gain the support of Julian Assange shows that conventional politics have been consigned to history
In a post Wednesday on her Facebook account, batty Sarah Palin did an about turn and apologised to Julian Assange – a man she’d described as “an anti-American operative with blood on his hands” in 2010.
In a missive to her followers, the dimmest politician on the planet stated the Wikileaks founder had “exposed the truth” about what Assange had described as “the Obama administration’s attempt to delegitimise Donald Trump”. She went on to claim the fugitive, who remains holed up in the Ecuadorian Embassy in Knightsbridge, had shared “important information that finally opened people’s eyes to Democrat candidates and operatives” and concluded: “This would not have been exposed were it not for Julian Assange”.
That Republican firebrand Mrs Palin said such a thing is yet another example of conventional politics being turned on its head. The election of Donald Trump and Brexit in Britain seemed bonkers but that this unhinged woman is seeking out the support of a man who is an evader of justice and a self-appointed crusader of vanity is something one simply could never have made up.
2017 looks set to be the year when the loopy people of the world unite. God help us all.
Sarah Palin’s Facebook post in full:
To Julian Assange: I apologize.
Please watch Sean Hannity’s interview with Julian Assange (Wikileaks).
Exposing the truth re: the Left having been oh-so-guilty of atrocious actions and attitudes of which they’ve falsely accused others. The media collusion that hid what many on the Left have been supporting is shocking. This important information that finally opened people’s eyes to democrat candidates and operatives would not have been exposed were it not for Julian Assange.
I apologize for condemning Assange when he published my infamous (and proven noncontroversial, relatively boring) emails years ago.
As I said at the time of being targeted and my subsequent condemnation, though, the line must be drawn before our troops or innocent lives deserving protection would be put at risk as a result of published emails.
Julian, I apologize.
P.S. If you get the chance, catch the movie “Snowden.” That movie and Hannity’s interview tonight are quite enlightening.
