Sarah Palin addresses Freedom Summit crowdPosted by Lawrence Lease on January 25, 2015
Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin was one of the many potential GOP candidates that spoke before a large crowd at the Iowa Freedom Summit on Saturday. She spoke about the wonderful memories she has of Iowa, including meeting the real American Sniper Chris Kyle there as well as running a half-marathon in Storm Lake. Palin’s speech lasted 35 minutes covering a wide range of topics including national security, GOP strategy for 2016 and the democrats’ routine lies.
Gov. Palin pounced on the White House’s refusal to call the “800-pound elephant in the room” radical Islam. “It is any Muslim who would choose evil, whose loyalty to a death-cult perversion is so darkened and has deceived their soul that they actually think they’re welcome here to transform here. No. What we do is strengthen our military, we respect our troops and let them, our troops as our gatekeepers, we let them tell jihadists, ‘Uh-uh, this is our house, get the hell out.’ ”
Governor Palin fought back against attacks against her including allowing her son to use the Palin dog, Jill Hadassah, as a footstool and the more recent controversy over her holding up a sign reading “Fuc_ You Michael Moore,” with gun sights drawn inside of the o’s in Moore. During the speech, she urged conservatives to take on Hillary Clinton in 2016 and said she’s grateful we have a deep bench. “It is good that we have a deep bench and its primary competition that will surface the candidate who’s up to the task and unify and this person has to because knowing what the media will do throughout all of 2016 to all of us it’s going to take more than a village to beat Hillary.”
On Thursday Palin told ABC News, she is very interested in running for President.
