Sarah Palin channeled former President Bush after 9/11 at a speech at the Western Conservative Summit in Denver on Friday, except the former Alaska governor was talking about an entirely different problem than the fight against radical Islam when she said “you’re either with us or you’re against us.”
The problem? The refusal of certain Republicans to come around to the political reality that is Donald Trump.
Calling the #NeverTrump crowed “threatened,” Palin said, “That gang, they call themselves Never hashtag, whatever, I just call ‘em Republicans Against Trump, or RAT for short.”
In answering the question of why Trump is winning, Palin quipped, “And you know it was really funny, to me, the ‘splodey heads keep ‘sploding over this movement because it seems so obvious. [Colorado Republican Senate candidate] Darryl [Glenn] wins, Trump wins, America will win because voters are so sick and tired of being betrayed. Politicians campaign one way and they govern another and that’s become the status quo.”
The #NeverTrump people “want to take their [Denver] Nuggets ball home and stay home instead of vote because their guy didn’t win this time around. Now, you know, I shouldn’t call them thumbsuckers because they’re not all bad … I’m kidding. They are. And Hillary thanks them because she cannot win without them.”
Referring to last-ditch efforts to try to change the rules and deny Trump the nomination at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Palin got serious, “This isn’t a game, nor some drama to be played out on the convention stage. No, they’re playing with dynamite and arming those opposed to the planks in the platform on which Lincoln and Reagan stood. We’re talking about the direction of our country, our children’s future, the direction of the Supreme Court, all of this hinging on the next election. And at such a time as this, you cannot be lukewarm. We’re going to take our country back, and you are either with us or against us.”
Palin also had a special word for the “silly” left-wing protesters at Trump rallies. “We’ve been telling him he should hold his rallies at construction sites. You know protesters aren’t going to show up at a job site! [applause] Did you know, some of those rabble rousers, they’re actually paid protesters? So there you go, not even President yet and our guy is already creating jobs!”
