Sarah Palin Uses White Supremacist Slogan To Praise Trump’s Warsaw Speech And Twitter Is P*ssed

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is not known for her good decision making. On Friday, she proved that she is either a total idiot (which we already knew) or that she is a-okay with neo-Nazis and white supremacists. In a tweet praising Donald Trump’s speech in Warsaw, Palin used the phrase “14 Words,” which is a well-known slogan of white nationalists.

Twitter was not impressed with Palin slinging around the neo-Nazi phrase.

So, which is it? Are we once again supposed to believe that a Trump loving Republican just “accidentally” sent out a white supremacist message? As multiple news sources have reported, Trump’s speech itself was filled with White Supremacist dog whistles. The Washington Post, Vox, Salon, the L.A. Times, and the Atlantic all called out the neo-Nazi undertones in the words he proudly belted out in Poland. As Vox explained, “Trump’s speech used the type of dire, last-chance wording often utilized by the far right on both sides of the Atlantic.”

Jonathon Capeheart of the Washington Post responded to Trump’s boast that “we write symphonies” by asking “What on Earth does that have to do with anything?…In that one line, taken in context with everything else Trump said, what I heard was the loudest of dog whistles. A familiar boast that swells the chests of white nationalists everywhere.”

In light of Trump’s continued love affair with the alt-right, aka neo-Nazis, it is kind of hard to think that Palin’s tweet was just another “accident.” After all, it seems to be a fairly accurate description of Trump’s speech, does it not?
