Sarah Palin calls for invasion of Czech Republic (satire)
Yesterday, I posted the following on Facebook:
Because of the ignorance of some Americans, the Czech Republic has issued a press release declaring that Chechans are from Chechnya, not the Czech Republic.
DailyKos has collected some pertinent comments from the right-wing blogosphere:
“I’m tired of this terrorist bull[bleep] [bleep]ing w our country. [Bleep] it, just nuke Czechoslovakia.”
“I can’t believe that pair in the Boston bombing was NOT towel-heads!!! They are Cechoslovakian! Damn!! [Bleep] Czechoslovakia.”
“I wonder if the US is gonna invade Russia or Czech Republic for attacking the US.”
“His dad said he was an angel — is that Czech for [bleep]?
“Some Czech mother [bleep]er is about to get LITTTT up.”
“They just said the Boston bombers were chezch. Does anyone realize West, Texas where the plant blew up is known for its major Chezch community.”
“Okay, the two Boston bombers were brothers and they are reporting then to be Czechoslovakian. The town of West, TX is full of Czechoslovakian immigrants. The connection slapped me in the face as soon as I heard it but I haven’t heard a hint of it in the news. Could it be a coinky-dinky?”
The foregoing is real. The news release from the Czech Republic is real (see HERE), and the stupid comments from the right-wing blogosphere are real.
THIS, however, is satire:
Sarah Palin called for the invasion of the Czech Republic today in response to the recent terrorist attacks in Boston.
In an interview with Fox News, the former governor of Alaska said that although federal investigators have yet to complete their work, the time for action is now.
“We don’t know everything about these suspects yet,” Palin told Fox and Friends this morning, referring to Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who allegedly carried out the Boston Marathon attacks. “But we know they were Muslims from the Czech Republic.
“I betcha I speak for a lot of Americans when I say I want to go over there right now and start teaching those folks a lesson. And let’s not stop at the Czech Republic, let’s go after all Arab countries.
“The Arabians need to learn that they can’t keep comin’ over here and blowing stuff up. Let’s set off a couple of nukes in Islamabad, burn down Prague, then bomb the heck out of Tehran. We need to show them that we mean business.”
