Sarah Palin: Waterboarding is How We Baptize Terrorists!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Speaking this weekend at Stand & Fight, a rally held by the National Rifle Association (NRA), Sarah Palin did not disappoint attendees looking for fiery rhetoric.

The 50-year-old former Republican V.P. candidate claimed that President Obama's foreign policy and global vision have merely “coddled adversaries.”

A Palin presidency, she argues, would be quite different ...

“Come on. Enemies, who would utterly annihilate America, they who’d obviously have information on plots, to carry out Jihad,” the ex-Alaska Governor said.

“Oh, but you can’t offend them, can’t make them uncomfortable, not even a smidgen."

"If I were in charge, they would know that waterboarding is how we baptize terrorists.”

Waterboarding is a controversial interrogation technique in which water is poured on the face of a detainee, who is immobilized, to induce a fear of drowning.

Experiencing this mortal terror will force the detainee to reveal information, or so the theory goes. Its effectiveness and morality has been hotly debated.

Palin was asked about the controversial quote the next day, and didn't walk it back.

“Would I make it again? Why wouldn’t I, yeah, absolutely,” she told NBC News.

“Terrorists who want to annihilate Americans, innocent Americans, our children ... whatever it takes to stop them. If I were in charge, I’d be stoppin’ em,” she said.

Typical Palin, steadfast and instantly quotable. But do you agree with her?

Yet ANOTHER instance where Sarah Palin is CORRECT ... It could be Ronald Reagan talking .. remember how those Islamist Radicals held Americans hostage in Iran for 444 days, throughout ole Jimmy Cahter's malaise-ful Administration? ... as soon as Reagan took office those American hostages were RELEASED.... I wonder why ............... not Putey Pute, the Rads in Iran, ole Kim Yung the despot and murderer .... they will all have 2nd AND 3rd thoughts before crossing swords with this particular American Warrior btw Gov Sarah Palin has had Obama's measure since before he was elected in 2008; she knew his weak equivocating over the Russian invasion of Georgia back in 08 could encourage Putin to waltz into Crimea in the future, should he be elected ,...... boy, was she RIGHT and that's not the only instance which has found Sarah Palin prescient wrt Obama's decision-making .. Sarah Palin ~> RIGHT on INFLATION, ARAB SPRING, DEATH PANELS, RARE EARTH MINERALS, COMMON CORE right on Obama tying gun-grabbing to his Obamacare BULLSCHMIDT Bill ~> she's ALWAYS correct! Sarah Palin has displayed sound judgement, CORRECTLY predicting the consequences of decisions taken, especially by Obama .. over and over again ... Who else in leadership has demonstrated such remarkable accuracy in this realm? Answer: - NOBODY America desperately needs a Commander-in-Chief with DEMONSTRABLE sound judgement ...

Is there some reason journalists are still acting as if this quitter is relevant? She quit her state---she has a dangerous mouth---and face it--it she were not a woman, you would label her as the loose cannon she is.

Sarah Palin Quotes

What I've had to do, though, is in the middle of the night, put down the Blackberries and pick up the breast pump. Do a couple of things different and still get it all done.

I am thankful to be married to a man who loves being a dad as much as I love being a mom so he is my strength. And practically speaking, we have a great network of help with lots of grandparents and aunties and uncles all around us. We have a lot of help.
