(Sarah Palin’s entire speech from CPAC 2015. Her Nazi reference can be heard at 15:10.)
Sarah Palin had her critics scratching their heads and her fans on their feet again this year at the Conservative Political Action Conference taking place in D.C.
Social media ignited after Palin used a Nazi reference to describe the current Obama administration playbook when it comes to winning the war with ISIS.
Oh, yes she did.
While mocking the State Department Spokeswoman Marie Harf’s comment that we should not kill terrorists and offer them jobs instead, Sarah offered her take on how the situation should be handled.
“They say you can’t kill our way out of war?” Palin said.
“Tell that to the Nazis,” Palin continued. “Oh wait, you can’t they’re dead – we killed them.”
Palin’s blunt and unapologetic comparison received thunderous applause from the audience at CPAC and had people – from both sides of the political aisle – captivated on Twitter.
@SarahPalinUSA has more common sense in her little finger than Obama has in his whole body!

Other folks took Sarah’s mockery way too literally. Perhaps it was too ‘nuanced’ for them.
Note to Sarah Palin: We didn’t kill all the Nazis. A lot of them survived the war. We did kill a lot of patriotic non-Nazi Germans though.

At least this guy gets it:
It is amazing how people get upset when someone says something completely logical. http://t.co/mgO9LuSIHv
