What did she do this time? Well, she has called for an outright invasion of the Czech Republic, a stable, law abiding Eastern European sovereign state and member of the European Union, because she clearly never paid any fucking attention in Geography class. But then again, how many Americans do you know who could actually place the Czech Republic on a map, or for that matter, even know that it used to be part of a now non-existent country known as Czechoslovakia! Exactly my point.
Anyway, an article from dailycurrent.com , forwarded to me by my good friend Tim Kussmaul, shows exactly how stupid Palin is as it’s clear she got the Czech Republic mixed up with Chechnya.
The article is as follows
In an interview with Fox News, the former governor of Alaska said that although federal investigators have yet to complete their work, the time for action is now.
“We don’t know everything about these suspects yet,” Palin told Fox and Friends this morning, referring to Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who allegedly carried out the Boston Marathon attacks. “But we know they were Muslims from the Czech Republic.
“I betcha I speak for a lot of Americans when I say I want to go over there right now and start teaching those folks a lesson. And let’s not stop at the Czech Republic, let’s go after all Arab countries.
“The Arabians need to learn that they can’t keep comin’ over here and blowing stuff up. Let’s set off a couple of nukes in Islamabad, burn down Prague, then bomb the heck out of Tehran. We need to show them that we mean business.”
Although hosts Steve Doocy and Gretchen Carlson applauded Palin’s jingoism, they immediately attempted to rectify her multiple geographic errors.
“Well Islamabad is the capital of Pakistan, which isn’t Arab,” Carlson corrected, “and Tehran is the capital of Iran, which is predominantly Persian. But I do see your point.”
“Also Czech Republic isn’t really an Arab or even Muslim country, I don’t think,” Doocy added, “but otherwise what you’re saying makes a lot of sense. I think most Americans wish Obama would step up and lead on this one.”
Palin, however, didn’t take kindly to being corrected and defended her analysis.
“Steve, that’s probably one of the most ignorant things I’ve ever heard. How is Czech Republic not a Muslim country? You saw those brothers, they were Islamic and they were Chechen!”
“Yes there were Muslim and they were ethnic Chechens,” Doocy started, “but they grew up mostly in Kyrgyzstan and the United States. And more importantly, Chechens don’t come from the Czech Republic, they come from Chechnya, which is part of Russia.”
“What’s the difference?” Palin responded. “Isn’t Russia part of the Czech Republic?”
“No, the Czech Republic is a separate country. It’s part of the European Union and a strong NATO ally,” Doocy noted. “But heck, why not? Let’s invade. What could go wrong?”
“Yeah and while we’re at it,” Carlson added, “let’s call the Queen of England and see if the U.K. will join us.”
In a statement released after the interview, Palin attacked Fox News and its “pro-Islamic” and “pro-geography” bias.
“This is just another case of the politically correct liberal media refusing to tell the truth about radical Islam,” she said.
As Tim rightly asked when he emailed me the link, where else than in the USA can a person with such a terrible universal education be seen as a serious politician. Quite right Tim. My answer, I have no fucking idea.
