Palin also addressed MSNBC host Martin Bashir’s “feces” remark about her and dismissed them as “vile and “evil” comments. She added she was not bothered by other news channels because God had “blessed” her with the Fox Network as a platform to “defend herself.”
Earlier this month, the former Alaska governor said that federal debt from China would eventually enslave Americans. She made the observation during a recent speech to promote her book “Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas.”
This correlation, however, didn’t sit well with MSNBC host Martin Bashir who read an account of a slave being forced to eat feces by madman Thomas Thistlewood and suggested that Palin be subjected to punishment for her comments.
When Chris Wallace asked for Palin’s response on the matter, she said she stood by her slavery statement and was disappointed over the way MSNBC handled the whole situation.
“The definition of slavery is to be beholden to a master and we will be beholden when that note is due,” she insisted. “As for the network’s condoning those type of statements, because there’s been no punishment of the fellow who said these words, that’s hypocrisy. That’s a given, though, when a conservative woman says something that they take offense, they usually just kind of poo-poo it, laugh it off as no big deal.”
She added she was ready to move on and “charge forth.”
“If Mr. Bashir or anybody else in this media elite bubble that they put themselves were to attack someone who is defenseless like a vulnerable child who does not have the podium, that microphone that God has blessed me to be able to express my opinion, if they don’t have that type of platform to defend themselves, well, if you want to see a mama grizzly get riled up and slap that person down then you come after a vulnerable child.”
