Yes, you read that right. I am jumping off the band wagon. Twenty years ago, when the real Conservative Movement was alive and well, you couldn’t even get in the door without saying hello to Mrs. Phyllis Schlafly. Mrs. Schlafly to us Real Conservatives, is the Goddess of the Movement. Plan and Simple. She has been a tireless warrior for the cause of Freedom and Liberty. But now, she just got tossed under the bus. For what you ask? To kiss the rings of AIPAC.
ST. PAUL, Minn. — The McCain campaign is showing signs of being spooked by the press frenzy about Governor Palin‘s family, abruptly canceling a scheduled appearance by the presumptive vice presidential nominee, moving to keep the candidate under wraps until today’s prime-time speech at the Republican National Convention here.
Spooked? What a joke.
The organizers of the Republican National Coalition for Life’s cocktail-buffet reception told The New York Sun that the McCain campaign called them late Monday evening to cancel the appearance of the Alaskagovernor. Mrs. Palin did meet behind closed doors with leaders of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.
The founder of Eagle Forum and the organizer of the Coalition for Life Palin event, Phyllis Schlafly, Monday told The New York Sun that she “had no idea” why the McCain campaign yanked Mrs. Palin from her speaking engagement. The Alaska governor had been booked two months in advance for the $95-a-ticket reception.
Mrs. Schlafly, it breaks my heart to see this happen to you. You, Pat Buchanan, and the Goldwater family, are why a lot of us are American Conservatives today. But like you, and Uncle Pat and my Goldwater Cousins, we all have been thrown under the bus.
According to one Republican source familiar with the meeting, Mrs. Palin was introduced to Aipac leaders here by Senator Lieberman. And there it is. The new standard bearers of “Conservatism”. AIPAC.
This source said Mrs. Palin “talked about her personal connection to Israel that she has had since she was a young child, it has been part of her views and how important this small country was for so many people for so many reasons.” This source also said, “She subscribes to Senator McCain’s ‘never again’ policy,” a slogan popularized after the Holocaust and a promise never to allow genocide to go unchallenged. Mrs. Palin also said her mother had recently traveled to Israel, according to this source, and that she displayed an Israeli flag in her office in Juneau.
Conservative? Sure. American First? Hardly. Treasonous to display another flag in a American Governors office? You betcha.
You had me going there Gov. Palin. You even had me toying with the idea of voting for the mcAmnesty/Palin ticket. But now, you have gone and showed me your true colors. God Damn, I am sickend.
