Watch: Sarah Palin Turns Minimum Wage Debate into Slam on Liberals, Veganism and Purgatory
So, it turns out that having an entire internet channel devoted to Sarah Palin uncensored is not really a great thing, even for attention-seeking Palin herself.
Promising to offer conservative commentary on timely events, for some reason Palin chose to use network time to attack a speech – made earlier in the summer by Elizabeth Warren – in which Warren demands that fast food workers have a right to a living wage.
For the record, this is what Warren actually said at NetRoots Nation:
“Fast food workers deserve a minimum wage and that means when they take to the picket line we are proud to fight along side them.”
Here is the incoherent response by Palin supposedly combatting Warren’s position, as filmed for the Sarah Palin Channel:
“‘We believe?’ Wait, I thought fast food joints…Don’t you guys think that they’re like of the Devil or something,'” Palin ranted.
“Liberals, you want to send those evil employees who would dare work at a fast food joint then ya just don’t believe in, thought you wanted to, I dunno, send them to Purgatory or somethin’ so they all go vegan,” she continued, making it clear liberals and purgatory – which many argue is not Biblical at all – punish people by denying them the glory of meat.
“And, uh, wages and picket lines I dunno they’re not often discussed in Purgatory, are they?” she further blabbered, driving her message home that purgatory is no place to unionize.
Then finally, a good 30 seconds or so after her rant began, Palin finally utters a coherent thought about minimum wage.
“Well, we believe an America where minimum wage jobs they’re not lifetime gigs they’re stepping stone,” she stressed, reiterating a well-worn and non-original conservative view that if you get stuck at the bottom of the wage ladder then it is your own fault.
Clearly, such insightful commentary and timely analysis is worth the $9.95 per month price tag for the Palin’s channel so far.
