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.”



  1. Quick Sarah, what’s the capital of Africa?

  2. The following is satire or not. Just a small sample. The link has many more.


    1. Sheryl Crow on Environmentalism: “I propose a limitation be put on how many sqares [sic] of toilet paper can be used in any one sitting. Now, I don’t want to rob any law-abiding American of his or her God-given rights, but I think we are an industrious enough people that we can make it work with only one square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where 2 to 3 could be required.'”

    2. Joe Biden on culturalism: “In Delaware, the largest growth of population is Indian Americans, moving from India. You cannot go to a 7/11 or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I’m not joking.”

    3. Whoopi Goldberg on 43-year-old Roman Polanski raping and sodomizing a 13-year-old girl: “I know it wasn’t rape-rape. It was something else but I don’t believe it was rape-rape. He went to jail and and [sic] when they let him out he was like “You know what this guy’s going to give me a hundred years in jail I’m not staying, so that’s why he left.”

    4. Joy Behar on Economics: “Isn’t it a little racist to call it Black Friday?”

    5. John Conyers on the Health Care Bill, which he voted for: “I love these members, they get up and say, ‘Read the bill … What good is reading the bill if it’s a thousand pages and you don’t have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you read the bill?'”

    6. Former DNC Chairman Donald Fowler on possible delay of RNC convention due to Hurricane Gustav: “Plus they think the hurricane’s going to hit (starts laughing) New Orleans about the time they start. The timing, at least it appears now, that it’ll be there Monday. That just demonstrates God’s on our side”

    7. Barack Obama: “I’ve now been in 57 states? I think one left to go?”

    8. John Kerry on the troops: “You know, education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.”

    9. Howard Dean: “We know that no one person can succeed unless everybody else succeeds.”

    10. Rosie O’Donnell: “Don’t fear the terrorists. They’re mothers and fathers.”

    You’re certainly correct, doc. For example:

    1. “When the President does it, that means that it’s not illegal.” ~ Richard M. Nixon
    2. “We spent a lot of time talking about Africa, as we should. Africa is a nation that suffers from incredible disease.” ~ President George W. Bush
    3. “The only way to reduce the number of nuclear weapons is to use them.” ~ Rush Limbaugh
    4. ”My grandmother was not a highly educated woman, but she told me as a small child to quit feeding stray animals. You know why? Because they breed. You’re facilitating the problem if you give an animal or a person ample food supply. They will reproduce, especially ones that don’t think too much further than that. And so what you’ve got to do is you’ve got to curtail that type of behavior. They don’t know any better.” ~ South Carolina Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer, arguing against government food assistance for poor residents.
    5. “The ACLU is to Christians what the American Nazi party is to Jews.” ~ Jerry Falwell
    6. ”Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on you.” ~ Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-North Carolina)
    7. ”We need to uptick our image with everyone, including one-armed midgets.” ~ Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele.
    8. “You teach a child to read, and he or her will be able to pass a literacy test.” ~ George W. Bush
    9. ”Feminism was established so as to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream of society.” ~ Rush Limbaugh
    10. “I couldn’t imagine somebody like Osama bin Laden understanding the joy of Chanukah.” ~ President George W. Bush

    BTW, I really enjoyed Prague. Prague’s Mala Stranya (Old City) section is where the Amadeus movie was filmed. And I got to drink the original Budweis beer.

  4. Pat is shamelessly lying. Anything to promote the cause I guess…..

    The Daily Kos article he took the comments from makes no mention of these being from the “right-wing blogosphere”. Pat just made that up.

  5. Furthermore, Pat has a very unique definition of “blogosphere” as every one of these comments (which are real) came from either twitter or facebook – not right-wing blogs.

    Suppose he’ll man up and admit his deliberate deception here? Yeah, me neither.

  6. Jaybo: What a nit-picking twerp you are!

    Those comments came from right-wing crackpots — whether by Twitter, Facebook or comments in the right-wing blogosphere. Their idiocy is not mitigated by any difference in the media they used.

    I’m surprised you didn’t defend their opinions.

  7. Pat lied, so I’m a nitpicker. Got it. He usually resorts to name-calling whenever I catch him lying.

    They all came from Twitter or Facebook. ZERO came from the right-wing blogosphere, as Pat continues to claim.

    Where exactly is the evidence these are from right-wing crackpots? Does Pat mean Kaitlynn Schuler, the woman holding her baby in her Twitter photo – what a right-wing crackpot she must be!

  8. By the way, Jaybo, I didn’t get those comments in my post directly from DailyKos. I found them on another site that credited DailyKos. Nor did the DailyKos piece to which you linked say the comments were from tweets. Only a link in the DailyKos piece made that clear.

    In any event, my reference to the right-wing blogosphere, though mistaken, hardly constituted what you call “deliberate deception.” What possible objective would be served by my deliberately deceiving readers on that point? Do you see some evil liberal scheme in that situation?

    Well, do you? C’mon! Man up! (I love that admonition. It’s so deliciously pseudo-macho.)

  9. expdoc: Why am I not surprised that you’ve trotted out that right-wing chestnut about Obama and the 57 states?

    You’re a regular here. Certainly you’ve noticed my previous debunking of that nonsense.

    Obama’s comment about “57 states” clearly was a slip of the tongue made at the end of a long and tiring day. He meant to refer to the 57 Democratic primaries and caucuses in 2008. They were in the 50 states plus DC, Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Texas had both a primary and a caucus. That’s a total of 56, and the number increases to 57 when you take into account that voters overseas — soldiers, diplomats and such — are treated as a separate primary election.

    Ah, but if you want to continue riding that hobby horse, enjoy the ride. It’s fun to pretend that a guy with degrees from two Ivy League universities doesn’t know that there are only 50 states, isn’t it? It almost implies that he gained admission to those schools on affirmative action.


  10. Craig Knauss

    I always loved Palin’s foreign relations experience: “You can see Russia from here.” Yeah, if you were out on a remote island in the Bering Straight looking at another remote island in the Bering Straight.

    What she apparently forgot was that Alaska borders Canada for about 1500 miles. A minor oversight.

  11. Give it up, Jaybo. You’re only making a fool of yourself — as you have with virtually every previous effort to correct me (my favorite being your nonsense about my comments prior to the Supreme Court ruling in the Obamacare case).

    And now you’re taking issue with my use of the right-wing label for people who want to bomb the Czech Republic, people who refer to “towel-heads” and people who think the residents of Czech descent in the town of West, Texas, are of the same ethnicity as the Boston bombing suspects. If that ain’t right-wing crapola, I don’t know what is.

    One other thing, Jaybo, only you could object to my “name-calling” (calling you a “nitpicker”) in the same sentence that you accuse my of “lying.” Again, I ask what nefarious purpose would be served by what you call my “deliberate deception” in this case?

    Your allegation is silly on its face.

    Anyway, I’m packing it in for the evening, so feel free to prattle away all night, if you want.

  12. Pat, I understood that your opinion must have changed due to the oral arguments before the Supreme Court. That post was done tongue-in-cheek following your tweaking of Ed, saying that you would be able to refer back to either statement to show what a great prognosticator you are. If you think that I really believed you posted two opposing opinions on the case just to cover your bases, you are mistaken. If that’s your favorite of my efforts to “correct” you, then have fun with that one.

    You have proved, once again, you have no interest in dialogue with me. I do my research. I have correctly and repeatedly called you out for your inaccuracies in citing polls with ridiculous methodologies, claiming Fox News never covered stories that it indeed did, and claiming an obvious actor was a “gun owner”, just to name a few. You claiming that I have somehow failed in virtually every previous effort to correct you does not make it so.

    So now go ahead and counter me with your bitter, small-minded rhetoric. Because you win, Pat. You win!

  13. Sodakhic

    Pat, the flaming lib, terrified of a little housewife from Alaska. Really surprised you put the word “satire” in your hit piece.

  14. Brian Opsahl

    Sarah,the quiting Govenor from Alaska has a cult following. She will not run for President she will only tease her dimwit folllowers and keep collecting those hugh paychecks that she gets. Wht do youe think she quit in the first place…?

  15. Sodakhic – Don’t you think “little housewife” is a bit of a stretch. Can’t think of many that would show up at CPAC wearing a sweatshirt, jeans and hooker heels.

  16. I expect enraged feminist outcry at any moment over the degradation of Sarah Palin as a woman.

    How long do you think I will have to wait?

  17. Brian Opsahl

    Correct Doc….she sure is degradating her self…

  18. This word comes to my mind when I see her and other political / media types… Which one of these definitions applies best? Only thing is, I’m not so sure she is compromising her principles as much as exploiting them for #3 in both uses. Happens all the time in corporate America. PS – this term can be applied to both sexes.

    whore (hôr, hr)
    1. A prostitute.
    2. A person considered sexually promiscuous.
    3. A person considered as having compromised principles for personal gain.
    intr.v. whored, whor·ing, whores
    1. To associate or have sexual relations with prostitutes or a prostitute.
    2. To accept payment in exchange for sexual relations.
    3. To compromise one’s principles for personal gain.

  19. I think you just defined the vast majority of politicians and political operatives.

  20. @Pat. Looks a satirical piece from a biased, liberal, and sexist media in an attempt to make Sarah Palin look like an stupid, arrogant right wing nut job. Stay classy brotha!

  21. I think this is pretty dishonest. This whole mess is all a lie called *satire* by the left so that they can continue to pass the “Palin is stupid” meme.

    IF you are so hellbent on calling people stupid, take issue with the liberals on Twitter who keep tweeting the story as if it were true AND those in the media who pick up satirical articles as fact.

    Kind of ironic, isn’t it? Obama voters, ya know.

  22. Craig Knauss


    But it’s OK when someone like Limbaugh tells lies about Obama and calls it “entertainment”?

    Kinda ironic, isn’t it.? Conservatives, ya know.

  23. All the while we all bicker amongst each other, while the corps and the whores in DC sell all of us out. They got theirs… ever notice how they talk about amending our benefits through the federal system but never theirs? Austerity is for us, not them…

    Were the suckers here for somehow thinking our little clever responses to each other matter… we the people are being screwed big time, especially us boomers, and all we do is fight amongst each other…

    Obama’s not going to error in our favor, he’ll talk like he is, but he’s going to error in favor of the Democratic Party operatives. Doesn’t matter who gets elected that much unless you want to buy into the meme that we got to elect a Democrat because of the Supreme Court appts…

    expdoc pointed out in another thread, Obama has pretty much continued where GW left off… I’ve always said that… The only real difference in the parties is what the leadership throws out for red meat to keep the base happy based on who has the biggest voting blocks.. that’s what politics is now… then the opposite party leader is voted in and he/she will do the same, pander to their base… repeat every 8 years is the norm .

  24. Brian Opsahl


    So your really blaming somebody else for making Sarah Palin look stupid…and NOT Sarah herself…really dude…!!

    Did you read what she said about what Paul Rever said during his midnite ride….She said that not anybody but her…

  25. Sarah gets picked on because her actions and words bring it on. Truly she’s the gift that keeps on giving including her dysfunctional family of hee haws although her tribe is well compensated for their lunacy.

  26. Brian Opsahl

    And thats the point with her ….she is cashing in…thats it guys
