Palin: Obama Wants To Return To The 'Days Before The Civil War' When People Were Not Considered Equal

Sean Hannity decided he wasn't done embarrassing himself after his ridiculous pimping of the latest Breitbart fake scandal from his previous show this Thursday evening and who better to bring in and talk about how President Obama supposedly was not "properly vetted" by the media before being elected president, than the un-vetted half-term quitter from Wasilla, Sarah Palin.

Sean Hannity decided he wasn't done embarrassing himself after his ridiculous pimping of the latest Breitbart fake scandal from his previous show this Thursday evening and who better to bring in and talk about how President Obama supposedly was not "properly vetted" by the media before being elected president, than the un-vetted half-term quitter from Wasilla, Sarah Palin.

I would not recommend playing a drinking game with the word "radical" for this segment of Hannity's interview with Palin, because if you're doing a shot every time it comes out of one of their mouths, you might have to call an ambulance for blood alcohol poisoning by the time it's over.

The racist blow horns were on full alert with this bit of mind-blowingly stupid hackery from Palin about our first black president when Hannity asked her what she thinks if heaven forbid their worst nightmare comes true and he's reelected:

PALIN: Well, what we can glean from this is an understanding of why we are all on the road that we are on and it's based on what went into his thinking, being surrounded by radicals. He is bringing us back Sean to days that... you can harken back to days before the Civil War, when unfortunately too many Americans mistakenly believed that not all men were created equal. And it was the Civil War that began the codification of the truth here in America... yes, we are equal and we all have equal opportunities, not based on the color of your skin.

You have equal opportunities to work hard and to succeed and to embrace the opportunities, god given opportunities to develop resources and work extremely hard and as I say, to succeed.

Now, it has taken all these years for many Americans to understand that that gravity, that mistake, took place before the Civil War and why the Civil War had to really start changing America. What Barack Obama seems to want to do is go back to before those days when we were in different classes based on income, based on color of skin.

Why are we allowing our country to move backwards instead of moving forward with that understanding that as our charters of liberty spell out for us, we are all created equally.

Yeah, that's the ticket. The amount of sheer projection here is just astounding, but that's just how they roll. Whatever our worst traits are, we're going to hurl them right back at the other side and hope the low information voters who watch this tripe are too stupid to know the difference.

And surprise, surprise, the video Hannity and Breitbart's site are pushing, which he mentioned again here of the lecture by Harvard professor Charles Ogletree is doctored. Who would have guessed?
