Facebook has been a buzz about Former Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin and Conservative Talker Mark Levin’s comments about leaving the Republican Party and forming a “Freedom Party”. The Daily Caller posted an article that contained the Fox News Coverage of Sarah Palin, the transcript of what she stated, and the Twitter posting made by Josh Painter and Fox’s America’s News HQ; which seemed to have started the chatter. Mark Levin weighed in on leaving the Republican Party on his talk show as well. WND Politics, Mail Online, Town Hall, Breitbart, MSN Now, and many others ran the story as well.
I myself have often criticized the Republican Party stating that if they aren’t able to get it together there won’t be a party left to pull together, but that is not the focus of particular piece. My focus is more along the lines of the Party name that was used. The “Freedom Party” sounds like a great name for a new 3rd Party at first glance. It is only when someone decides to dig a little deeper into the Party name that one will get turned off. There is an actual Freedom Party already, in fact there are numerous.I myself went looking for the Party name when I read the Daily Caller article! The first site I found was the Freedom Party International. There you will find that they were started in 2002 in Canada, own the name “Freedom Party”, “serves a number of purposes in support of its affiliated political parties”. Next I found the American Freedom Party website. They also have a Facebook Page linked to their site. They have 10 National Offices, and what’s interesting is, their EU and Europe office is in Croatia. If you go to the Facebook Page and look at the cover photo, it gives you a link in order to get more information. If you follow the link, it takes you to another Freedom Party Website. Now this site has 1 link on the left-hand side which takes you to a Spanish Investment website based out of Spain. On the American Freedom Party website you will find their statement of:
White Americans should push back! White Americans should abandon the Republicans and Democrats. Change your party allegiance to the American Freedom Party. A Nationalist party that shares the customs and heritage of the European American people. We need a Nationalist Party interested in defending our borders, preserving our language and promoting our culture. The American Freedom Party is not beholden to foreign governments, special interest groups, nor Wall Street. The American Freedom Party is for America First! The American Freedom Party (AFP) supports the right to keep and bear arms. Emancipate yourself from the anti-Western Democrat and Republican parties. Join a Nationalist Party that puts America first, The American Freedom Party!
The young college man who is interviewed in the video above is Matthew Heimbach who is the founder of The White Student Union. American Freedom Party wrote an article called White Pride In The Classroom about him and posted it on their Facebook Page.
My issue with this as far as Sarah Palin is this: Did she not know about the Freedom Party or any of the pages affiliated before she spoke??? Did any of her handlers or anyone around her in her circle of friends know??? Why was this not researched before she opened her mouth publicly??? It only took me a few minutes to Google the Freedom Party, find the websites and pages, and connect a few dots. I don’t know about you, but I know that I myself would be Googling and researching everything (or having my staff do the research) if I were as big of a Public Figure that she is; before I made the statement that I loved something or the idea of something! That is the only way to avoid inserting your foot in your mouth these days! With the way things are going in our society today, does one really want to be tied to a racist group or organization, just because they didn’t take the time to do a little research before speaking? The Left will try to paint her out as a racist now because she made a mistake and she wasn’t informed enough about this before she spoke on it. I hope she will go back, address this, and retract. Things like this have been known to kill a persons political career…..
