The dumbfuckery of this comment hit me like…well, like an Alaskan tanker truck to the face. Sarah Palin, proving her wonderful wisdom again, wrote a Facebook note blaming the oil spill on….get this….environmentalists!
With [environmentalists’] nonsensical efforts to lock up safer drilling areas, all you’re doing is outsourcing energy development, which makes us more controlled by foreign countries, less safe, and less prosperous on a dirtier planet. Your hypocrisy is showing. You’re not preventing environmental hazards; you’re outsourcing them and making drilling more dangerous.
Extreme deep water drilling is not the preferred choice to meet our country’s energy needs, but your protests and lawsuits and lies about onshore and shallow water drilling have locked up safer areas. It’s catching up with you. The tragic, unprecedented deep water Gulf oil spill proves it.
Oh, and apparently Palin says we shouldn’t trust BP because their “foreigners”. That’s interesting. Palin didn’t seem to have a problem with BP when she and husband worked for them for 18 years! And if foreigners are so bad, then how come Fox “news”, the station Palin loves oh so much, is owned by a Saudi oil prince Alwaleed bin Talal? (He owns 7% of the stock, second only to Murdoch himself)
War is peace! Freedom is slavery! Ignorance is strength!…..nope…not feeling it. Black is still black and white is still white, and Sarah Palin is still a complete moron. Maybe we could plug the leak with her ego.
