Take a real good look at her face –  not at her fake smile, but look into her eyes.

Alaskans Speak (In A Frightened Whisper): Palin Is “Racist, Sexist, Vindictive, And Mean”

“It was kind of disgusting,” Lucille, who is part Aboriginal, said in a phone interview after admitting that she is frightened of being discovered telling folks in the “lower 48” about life near the North Pole.

I see the eyes of a racist and a global warming denier. Sad indeed; and, her racism helps to clarify how climate disintegration is a human rights issue.

Update:

(Someone needs to cover the sexism of her having called Hillary a “b****” next)


Sarah Palin and Me September 6, 2008 by Charley James –

Anonymous sources are the bane of a reporter’s existence, and have been at least since Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein used them extensively to unmask Watergate and topple Richard Nixon.

Frankly, writing as someone who has been covering news since the late 1960s for everything from local newspapers to major market TV and radio stations to a major business newsweekly, journalists don’t like citing anonymous sources any more than much of the public likes reading pieces that quote people without attribution. Alas, more often than not, the reality is that in a highly-explosive story such as my piece about Sarah Palin published here on Friday, granting anonymity may be the only way to get a source to agree to be interviewed.

So I am not surprised that a number of readers who wrote comments about the article raised questions about my sources. It has happened before, especially when I tackled a subject that raises a lot of dust, and it will happen again. Although I won’t reveal any sources – I honor promises of anonymity – let me explain how the story unfolded and sources came to my attention as I did the reporting.

Here is how her racism helps to clarify how climate disintegration is a human rights issue. First, Palin denies that sooner than later, the ice is melting.


Exclusive: Scientists warn that there may be no ice at North Pole this summer

“Last year we saw huge areas of the ocean open up, which has never been experienced before. People are expecting this to continue this year and it is likely to extend over the North Pole. It is quite likely that the North Pole will be exposed this summer – it’s not happened before,” Professor Wadhams said.

There are other indications that the Arctic sea ice is showing signs of breaking up. Scientists at the Nasa Goddard Space Flight Centre said that the North Water ‘polynya’ – an expanse of open water surrounded on all sides by ice – that normally forms near Alaska and Banks Island off the Canadian coast, is much larger than normal. Polynyas absorb heat from the sun and eat away at the edge of the sea ice.

Inuit natives living near Baffin Bay between Canada and Greenland are also reporting that the sea ice there is starting to break up much earlier than normal and that they have seen wide cracks appearing in the ice where it normally remains stable. Satellite measurements collected over nearly 30 years show a significant decline in the extent of the Arctic sea ice, which has become more rapid in recent years.

This has already had the dire consequences for Indigenous peoples who have had to relocate six years ago “in the remote Alaskan island community of Shishmaref,” yet all she cares about is drilling where ice has melted. Consequently, that and this aren’t in Alaska,

but this is.


Global warming: The Inuit were the first to highlight Alaska’s  Aug 19, 2005

The indigenous people of Alaska could become the first global warming refugees as their frozen homeland goes through the quickest defrost since the end of the last Ice Age, some 12,000 years ago.

Indigenous peoples from the Arctic have long argued that global warming was having a dramatic effect on their environment. In 2002, villagers in the remote Alaskan island community of Shishmaref voted to relocate to the mainland because rising sea levels threatened to overwhelm their community.

And just how does she feel about the Indigenous people that have had to relocate?


Racial and ethnic slurs may be “just Alaska” and, clearly, they are common, everyday chatter for Palin.

Besides insulting Obama with a Step-N’-Fetch-It, “darkie musical” swipe, people who know her say she refers regularly to Alaska’s Aboriginal people as “Arctic Arabs” – how efficient, lumping two apparently undesirable groups into one ugly description – as well as the more colourful “mukluks” along with the totally unimaginative “f**king Eskimo’s,” according to a number of Alaskans and Wasillians interviewed for this article.

I still see the eyes of a racist and a global warming denier,

since “f**king Eskimo’s” and “Arctic Arabs” is how she refers to Alaska’s Aboriginal people at the same time as she refers to Obama as, “a Step-N’-Fetch-It, ‘darkie musical’ swipe.” Let’s discuss more how her racism helps to clarify how climate disintegration is a human rights issue by thinking about a fictional scene from a movie, The Dark Knight.


You know what I noticed? Nobody panics when things go according to plan. Even if the plan is horrifying. If tomorrow I tell the press that like a gang banger will get shot, or a truckload of soldiers will be blown up, nobody panics, because it’s all, part of the plan. But when I say that one little old mayor will die, well then everyone loses their minds!

I caught myself substituting the people losing their houses who are in the public domain verses the Indigenous peoples from the Arctic who have had to relocate. Few have panicked in this election for Indigenous peoples from the Arctic who have had to relocate, because that’s “Part of the plan” of Manifest Destiny.


In 1823, the Christian Doctrine of Discovery was quietly adopted into U.S. law by the Supreme Court in the celebrated case, JOHNSON v. McINTOSH (8 Wheat., 543). Writing for the unanimous court, Chief Justice John Marshall observed that Christian European nations had assumed “ultimate dominion” over the lands of America during the Age of Discovery, and that–upon “discovery”–the Indians had lost “their rights to complete sovereignty, as independent nations,” and only retained a right of “occupancy” in their lands. In other words, Indian nations were subject to the ultimate authority of the first nation of Christendom to claim possession of a given region of Indian lands. [Johnson: 574; Wheaton: 270-1]

Palin’s racist use of “Arctic Arabs” spit towards Indigenous peoples suggests oil theft by overturning governments; or, in this case hoping the ice melts to steal the oil. In that same dark light, Palin’s use of “f**king Eskimo’s” suggests resentment over the fact theInuit have laid a claim in the Arctic region themselves.


“We are launching a claim in the Arctic only on behalf of the Greenlanders,” which would inherit any of Denmark’s Arctic territory once they become independent, says Svend Auken, a veteran Danish politician and former energy minister.

Why does Palin refer to Alaska’s Aboriginal people as “Arctic Arabs” and “f**king Eskimo’s?” Like the character played by Michael Cain states in “The Dark Knight” said.


Some men (people) just want to watch the world burn.

In other words, she wants the ice to melt,


May 08, 2008

This is a video journal chronicling a visit by Andrew C. Revkin, New York Times writer and Dot Earth blogger, to the drifting, cracking sea ice around the North Pole with a climate-research team. More on that trip is online at nytimes.com/revkin and nytimes.com/learning/globalwarming.

so she can “Drill, Baby Drill!”

But the “Arctic Arabs” and “f**king Eskimo’s” as Palin racially calls them are in her way while they have hope with Obama, who she racially calls “a Step-N’-Fetch-It, ‘darkie musical’ swipe.” How ignorant, arrogant, and racist of her.

Palin Paid $150 to Murder Wolves

Defenders of Wildlife Asks Judge to Shut Down Palin’s Wolf Bounty Program

“The Governor is overstepping her legal authority by offering cash payments for each wolf killed by aerial gunners,” stated Tom Banks, Defenders of Wildlife’s Alaska Associate. “That’s a bounty by anyone’s standards regardless of what they call it.”

Palin is pro life (last link from Sarah Palin: Dominionist Stalking Horse).

So pro life, if a hunter brought in the left foreleg of a wolf they shot, the state would pay them $150.


Hoping to boost the number of wolves killed this year by permitees, Palin announced the state would pay $150 for each kill. According to an Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G) news release, the bounty was instituted to “motivate permittees to redouble their efforts and to help offset the high cost of aviation fuel, ADF&G will offer cash payments to those who return biological specimens to the department.” The state’s press release, issued last Wednesday, indicates that “Permittees will be paid $150 when they bring in the left forelegs of wolves taken from any of several designated control areas.”

But as long as she has her fur coat, which they don’t make from those forelegs.

They just use the heads, the main bodies, and the tails. I guess it’s alright with her, but it’s not alright with me.


“Governor Palin needs to take a close look at wildlife management practice in her state and restore the use of sound science,” concludes Banks. “She said would heed the will of the public, but it’s increasingly clear she’s only listening to that segment that is willing to sacrifice Alaska’s natural heritage for the benefit of a few.”

I am of the strong opinion that the way someone treats animals is how they human beings and that in fact, animals have emotions. I remember hearing about that being talked about in a researched format, but I can see that for myself. I can also see for myself, the utter hypocrisy of pro – lifers like Palin, which are really pro – death when it meets their ends. Barring the necessary thesis that could be written on that last sentence; I’m stopping now before I say something I’ll regret. Like, how many symbolic skins would she wear if she were in the second highest office in the land?  It was clear, in March of 2007, that she was “willing to sacrifice Alaska’s natural heritage for the benefit of a few.” That’s
partly why McCain, the Indian Agent, chose her in my opinion.
