‘Small town America is the soul of our country’: Sarah Palin shreds media lapdog’s ‘elitist card’

Seattle Weekly’s Ellis Conklin wrote a sneering preview of Sarah Palin’s upcoming commencement address at Republic High School in Washington state.

Conklin didn’t just belittle the former Alaska governor and what he called her “boundless anti-intellectualism”; He scoffed at the graduating class for lobbying to bring “the poor darling” to graduation.

Seems this 17-year-old kid named Tyler Weyer, the class president, has long held this fixation about Palin. So when the school year began, and fellow seniors began to ponder potential commencement speakers, Weyer, recalls principal Anderson, said, “Hey, what about Sarah Palin?’ And everyone liked the idea.”

Conklin also suggests that if Palin still had a “glimmer” of star power, she wouldn’t have to sully herself by speaking at a small school in a tiny town. Palin took to Facebook and Twitter to hit back at Conklin’s Better Than You™ contempt for small town America.

Small town America is the soul of our country, despite the opinion of the Seattle Weekly’s Ellis Conklin and the lamestream media. Todd and I are on our way to congratulate the graduating class in Republic, Washington, this Saturday and I’m honored and touched by their ingenuity, tenacity, and invitation to speak to these young Americans about to begin their futures.

Small town America is our heart; it may not be the Ivy Leagues or what Ellis and the media deem acceptable, but these students and this town represent what is good and right about America and the small towns where most of us grew our own roots and values.

Too often the media forgets its own humble roots and plays the elitist card. Not so this weekend. We are going to congratulate the Tigers of 2013 and have something special for each and every one. They will grow to defend our country, manage our economy, build our families, and work to achieve each of their own personal dreams.

Sorry, Seattle Weekly, you, as usual, miss the point.

            Will all due respect, sir, when you said you said you’d “trade you all of the Canadians already in the U.S. for just ONE Sarah Palin”, it leads me to believe that you have a concern about Canadians disparaging this country. While from Canada, I am working really hard (and a great cost) to become a legal citizen of the United States of America. And I’ve heard too many times from people on how “some Canadians” diss America. I highly respect this country.

            Just to add: I would take Sarah Palin any day, too.

          • Canadian in USA

            It’s the next day, and I’ve seen some more of your comments, and now I understand the context of your first comment. I sincerely apologize for coming across too strong. I used to live in Toronto, but now living “in the south” (North Carolina), so I assumed you were saying “get rid of the Canadians in America and trade them for Sarah”. I completely misunderstood your comment and I’m sorry for coming across too strong.

          • BlueGood

            That was very good of you “C in USA’…..my compliments and humble acceptance…I too, used to live in the GTA, and thank GOD, declined my father’s invitation to move back there…a billion years ago….and remain in the Ottawa Valley on the very same 220 acre ranch he dragged me to when a reluctant kid……..’nother story…

            Thank you again for taking the time to understand a stalwart Conservative! In Canada I am TRUE BLUE…in U.S. of A…..RED RED RED!

    Why is Ellis Whatever so very bitter?
    Might it have something to do with his having 38 followers on twitter?

    • Joe W.

      Because, as a gay man, a strong, independent, traditional values, Christian, patriotic woman, intimidates the hell out of him.

      • grais

        That doesn’t explain his attempt to denigrate small-town America.

        • Joe W.

          Actually, it does. MOST gay people disparge of small town America because most small towns are quite conservative, Christian, and do not support the notion of the “gay agenda”. That’s why they tend to congregate in gay friendly confines such as San Francisco, Seattle, Austin, etc.

          • James Perley

            Our Iowa county is so thinly populated it has only five traffic lights. One of the first gay couples to be legally married had the wedding in our county, The two ladies also had one of the first gay divorces in our county. No one harassed them or shunned them.

          • Joe W.

            Who said anything about “harassing” or “shunning”, James??

          • David Johnson

            Wait a minute was the divorcing couple the same ones who were the first married couple????

          • journogal

            Not always true…As someone who has grown up in a small town and currently live in one, I don’t care what anyone does, just don’t do it on my property or ask me to pay for it. Aside from that, live your life the way you want. Not all small town residents fit neatly into your little box that you made for us. True, there are small-minded people, you’ll find them everywhere, regardless of the size of the city. Don’t broad-brush, unless you can pull up credible examples of gay couples being kicked out or shunned in small towns.

          • Joe W.

            So when did I say ANYTHING about kicking out or “shunning” gay people in small towns?? You should not put words into my mouth, madame. I, like you, could not care less what y’all do in the privacy of your homes. Just don’t rub my nose in it..don’t expect me to PAY for it..and don’t expect me to approve of it. THAT is what I said, lady, and THAT is what most folks in small towns believe. And I did NOT put you into a small box, either. My comment clearly stated that I believed that MOST small towns. Clearly there are exceptions, but every small town that I have been in, and there are many here in my part of Texas, my observation is correct. Have a great day, madame.

            I don’t think that is even remotely accurate, Joe. That’s a talking point from the Left created to disparage Smalltown, USA. All despots need enemies and when there aren’t any, they create them.

          • Joe W.

            You, of course, are entitled to your opinion my friend. However, I have NEVER seen a gay pride parade in a small town in America. Never seen a gay bar, nor are there any clubs, organizations or any other association devoted to the lifestyle choice in the small towns I have spent time in.. Here in flyover country, the plurality of citizens have repeatedly voted AGAINST the gay agenda. Please show me evidence to the contrary. I am not suggesting that small town Americans “hate” homosexuals. Far from it. As Christians, we love them, while hating the sin that is the “gay” lifestyle. Again, there are, of course, exceptions. But my observation is correct. 70% of us profess to be Christians, and it is even higher in Middle America. Prove me wrong, if you can.

          • Guest

            So because you personally have never seen gays organize a parade in a small town, you infer that it’s because the Christian people of the town haven’t allowed one?

          • Joe W.

            Oh come on, man, is reading comprehension THAT difficult for you? When did I say that Christian people would not “allow” such a parade?? I said I have never heard of one, and I gave NO REASON as to why, except for the FACT that gays seem much more comfortable in the liberal bastions of the big cities. What is so hard to understand about that?? Are you trying to begin an argument with me from a liberal point of view?? Really?? Tell me this, pal. Have YOU ever heard of a Gay Pride Parade in a small, American Town?? If so, please inform me of where and when. Otherwise, quit bugging me, and quit putting words in my mouth. You sound much like a left wing moon bat. And I know that you are not one of those. Are you??

          • grais

            While his nonsensical, bitter Palin Derangement Syndrome is most obvious, he was definitely putting down the venue by making it seem to be worth less than a large venue. 26 graduates are less worthy of a speaker.

    These are people who measure their self worth by the neighborhood they live in, the schools their children attend or the parties to which they are invited. The idea that they might go to a small town because they asked and you feel honored that they would ask, is beyond their comprehension.

    Palin is just the type of speaker high school student and college students should hear at their commencement. But Conklin and their ilk think the same old radical crew still living in the 60’s are better choices. The 26 graduating students could teach Conklin a lesson on integrity and pride something she is woefully lacking.

    Why do these obtuse shallow examples of human life, live in America, of all places–where individualism, opportunity, generosity and faith enriches all? This twit needs to stay in the obscurity of his narrow life. Yesterday-never heard of him nor his bully pulpit.
    Sarah Palin will continue to share value, fairness through her advocacy of liberty, for all, even the twit from Seattle. The progressive political forces in USA fear her so much, yet, only fight back with 11 year old actions, innuendo, lies. They cannot impeach her record, cannot buy her, change her, Thank God!
    Palin should be our first woman President. Hillary is cold, calculating, dishonest, and has never, will never, put other’s needs before hers.
    What generous good thing has she(HC)ever accomplished? Never forget “What difference does it make?” statement.
    That is how she lives, thinks–pfff ..Now, that is something the “disdain of press” should write about. Not the generous, American valued, uplifting act of SPalin encouraging a small graduating class to live free, value life, liberty and country.

    • Sonya A. Willis

      Because these weak people are incapable of living without the hard work of the makers of America. The anger and resentment at their core is because they know they lack the qualities and ruggedness it takes to live on their own and provide for themselves.
      It explains why so many move to large cities and surround themselves with others sharing that same, ‘better than the small town they came from’ attitude. Someone like Sarah who is proud of her small town roots and is successful points out what they couldn’t do themselves.

So beautifully and succinctly written. Made me proud. CLEARLY, Sarah “gets it” and the libs do not. Thank you Sarah!

Yes, she’s so irrelevant, so unimportant, so ignorable that every time she moves from one room to another the libs run for their keyboards to remind us how irrelevant she really is.

    A Conservative in a room full of so called “Liberals” would be aggravated, but, would handle themselves well and with dignity.
    Conversely, the lone Liberal would have a meltdown and most likely a panic attack. They have no self confidence and need other lemmings around them in order to to feel good about themselves.

    If “genius” Obama had only been able to emulate Palin’s budgetary prowess,
    America would not be in its present dire economic condition.
    The Progressive Socialist media drones conveniently overlook that.

    The truth is out about Sarah Palin and some are still buying the act.

    • cvmoonshadow

      Still not buying your crap about dirty little secrets. Check out The Undefeated available on Netflix with a bunch of actual news clips of her over her almost 20 years as a public servant. No fake or staged anything. Please get a clue.

      Lib-scums in the Can…shaking it
      briskly and then spilled them out on the comment page and the little brain dead
      lefties are just going nuts…look at them running into each other trying to be
      the most disgusting…and vile sub humans around…and they all come out like
      roaches and contaminate everything…but that is the insane effect the Great
      and Wonderful Sarah Palin has on lib-scums….they are so predictable….just
      so on cue…lol…watch this…..”SARAH PALIN”….LOL THEY ALL JUST
      ABOUT CRAPED A BRICK…….

    The lunatic left has been exposed for the dimwits they are. And we can thank Sarah Palin for doing her part.. Her down-home charm and middle America insight has driven the left crazy and there isn’t enough Prozac to make them feel better. 2016 will be fun!

    What ‘2012 race’? She did not enter any race in 2012.

    • bristolmyersquib

      SarahPAC must have been created then because she needed new luggage.

      • TocksNedlog

        Did she enter any political race in 2012? NO.
        Is it the stated purpose of SarahPac to raise money for a Sarah Palin political campaign? NO.
        How can you possibly expect anyone to listen to any of your conspiracy theories when you can’t even get the basic facts correct?

    I live in small town America. Just yesterday a Wounded Warrior who spent almost 1 yr. at Walter Reed finally came home. The people lined the road he traveled through 3 COUNTIES!!!!! The truck he traveled in was escorted by each county’s Sheriffs Dept. It was wonderful to see!

    if people are this evil and vile towards wonderful hard working people like Todd And Sarah Palin can you imagine how evil and corrupt this world would be without these people…please read and take to heart something Jesus said…this is something not talked about much….and is very sobering and terrifying……

    Luk 23:26 And as they led him away, they laid hold upon one Simon, a Cyrenian, coming out of the country, and on him they laid the cross, that he might bear it after Jesus.
    Luk 23:27 And there followed him a great company of people, and of women, which also bewailed and lamented him.
    Luk 23:28 But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children.
    Luk 23:29 For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck.
    Luk 23:30 Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us.
    Luk 23:31 For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?

    please understand…these vile people are trying to destroy everything that is good and decent and wonderful about us as a nation..”Luk 23:31 For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?”

    Sarah and Todd and their whole family are wonderful God fearing people…and there fore must be destroyed….if we do these things in the green tree (when life is good and goodness still survives ) what shall be done in the dry (when the good around us has been wiped out) imagine the pure evil man will dispense upon his fellow man…thus….Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us.

    if we don’t fight for people like Sarah and Todd….what does that say about us……

  • pairadimes

    Few things are more hazardous to humanity than a collection of idiots that have gathered together over their shared delusions and now fancy themselves as intellectuals. Somehow, we have permitted them to gain political power over us, and conditions will continue to decline until we correct this. Conklin obviously prefers the delusions.

    The libs just can’t help themselves they will attack her for anything. Same thing will happen with Bachmann.

    • eeddggy

      Did happen to Bachman.

  • eeddggy

    Sarah, we love you and appreciate you. This hateful que*r is a mis-wired soul, obviously. You have more patience and control than I do with your thoughtful response. I’m sick of these ungracious America Haters. We have been “conservative” and polite to these sick people for way too long. I have no problem with gay folks that have class and dignity, however, too many think they are an elite and protected class.

    Anybody that is offended by my calling him a que*r had better stop calling me a teabagger. I’ve had with you PC losers.

    “Too often the media forgets its own humble roots and plays the elitist card.”

    Sorry, Sarah, they have no humble roots. They were born to elitism.

      Yes, he won trophies, as pathetic as he most likely was at sports. He feels entitled because he is a mouth breather.

    So called “liberals” are the weakest and most needy of all human beings.

      The government needs about another 200 random names to post lies under here. It’s amazing how pro-Sarah Palin all these anonymous people have become since the truth leaked out.

        If you were going to pick a “random name” would you pick one as obvious as mine? You may as well pick John Smith.

    How many commencement speeches has Ellis Conklin been invited to give?

  • mtman2

    How many kids graduating in the 70’s + 80’s, especially girls would have LIKED such a role model as an accomplished daughter, friend, high schooler/college grad, announcer, wife, mother, REAL community organizer + governor of a state that she straightened out all the crony fraud + waste. Of course the boys could have seen all that too for future reference in what a great spouse could be like. Not some hate filled, never satisfied, commie nag, that’s NEVER filled with Godly intuitive feminine love + dedicated kindness of a faithful wife + mother PROVERBS 31.

  • Sarita Perl

    This small high school won the lotto of commencement speakers…kudos to them for the big fish catch!

  • Kristy Patullo

    Just another hit piece on Sarah Palin to get hits on their page. They’re a dime a dozen. This guy would salivate at the chance to interview Gov. Palin. Just like all the Palin critics. They’re endlessly fascinated by her.

  • svobodnik

    Let me guess – “Seattle Weekly” is one of those free weekly papers that appear in most American cities? They all support the progressive agenda. In Houston it’s called “Houston Press”. In San Antonio, it’s called “Current”. These papers are ubiquitous – you can find them everywhere. Maybe it’s time we conservatives pushed back…?

  • Raye09

    Don’t you get it? Commencement speeches only mean something if given at Ivy League schools and prestigious highschools. Not regular folks like you and me.
