Sarah Palin, Why does your husband hate America? And do you?

Posted by Bill Nance on September 3, 2008

The journalists have taken a while to get at this stuff. State records offices are closed on weekends and the Holiday made the job take even longer. But now we know for a FACT that Sarah Palin’s husband was a member of the secessionist Alaska Independence Party.

This party has in it’s platforms two central issues:

1. Calling for a plebiscite for secession from the Union

2. Installing a Christian Fundamentalist Theocracy (Still looking for the specific link, but no one is disputing it)

Here are a few choice words from the founder of the party, whom the party still calls it’s “Founding Father.”

  • “The problem with you John Birchers’ is that you are too damn liberal!”
  • I’m an Alaskan, not an American. I’ve got no use for America or her damned institutions.”
  • “The fires of hell are frozen glaciers compared to my hatred for the American government.”
  • “And I won’t be buried under their damn flag!” I’ll be buried in Dawson. And when Alaska is an independent nation they can bring my bones home.” Joseph Vogler, Founder, Alaskan Independence Party

From TPM:

This afternoon, the director of Division of Elections in Alaska, Gail Fenumiai, told TPMmuckraker that Todd Palin registered in October 1995 to the Alaska Independence Party, a radical group that advocates for Alaskan secession from the United States.

Besides a short period of a few months in 2000 when he changed his registration to undeclared, Todd Palin remained a registered member of AIP until July 2002 when he registered again as an undeclared voter.

It is interesting to note that 2002, the year Todd Palin stopped being a registered member of the AIP was the same year that Palin made her first unsuccessful bid to Alaska statewide  office in the race for Lt. Governor, in which she was defeated.

The Republicans are denying that Sarah Palin was ever a member of the party at all, but AIP members claim otherwise. Now perhaps it’s true that while Todd Palin was a member of this party, Sarah Palin, who is said to have attended at least one of their conventions if not more,  was in fact opposed to it. -In a pigs eye.

But it gets better.

Here’s a video of GOVERNOR Sarah Palin addressing the AIP …THIS YEAR.

Quick question? What was the Governor of Alaska, in her official capacity as a Governor in the United States of America doing not only addressing, but giving her welcome and best wishes to a party which advocates secession from the United States?

This is NOT something small, it’s bloody HUGE. The title isn’t a joke, it’s a serious question:

Governor: Why does your husband hate America, and why do you think a secessionist party should get official recognition from the Governor’s office?  Would you offer the same warm welcome and fond wishes to the Communist Party of America? or the Socialist Worker’s Party? (Even those morons don’t advocate secession). If reporters don’t put those question to Sarah Palin they aren’t doing their jobs. This is fucking obscene.
