Sarah Palin took to the medium she almost exclusively uses to make major pronouncements, to put down using hashtag activism.  That would be the same medium that embraces the hashtag activism–social media.

“Diplomacy via Twitter is the lazy, ineffectual, naïve, and insulting way for America’s leaders to deal with major national and international issues,” Palin wrote in her Facebook post. “It’s embarrassing.”…

“What is the Obama administration’s weapon of choice in this battle for these young girls’ lives?” Palin asked. “Hashtagging tweets on social media! I kinda-sorta doubt a tweet will intimidate the kidnappers much. So, if you’re going to jump in and do something about these Islamic terrorists at all, then do it right, do it firmly, and kick their ass.”

She is echoing what other conservatives have been saying and, like them. misunderstanding what the hashtags are supposed to affect. And, with no sense of irony, saying how “ineffectual, naïve and insulting” it is to use Twitter to get out important messages. Because she would never do such a thing.

    I bet if you explained that to her face-to-face, she’d stare at you like a deer in the headlights.

    Sarah is working with the last of her brain cells

    and Big Mama Grizzly is right, ……….. AGAIN

    These hashtags were on the pic she shared on FB to help make her point …



    (eg. a Counter Terrorism Unit from the IDF has gone to Nigeria while potus and flotus twitter their chaos, coddling and playing with the EVIL boko haram)

        **Listen to this NOT4SALE Proven Reformer, Sarah Palin, and the Tea Party, America

        Research what this Governor did with the AK budget in just 3 full legislative sessions – how her work caused AK’s credit rating to be raised

        More Americans are WISING UP as the days go by wrt the truth about Sarah Palin ,,,,

        I think we can confidently assert now that she has very sound judgment………………you know, it’s quite uncanny that Former Gov Sarah Palin correctly read Obama’s character, and what kind of leader he would be, way back on the 08 Campaign trail …. with such specificity -……………. nothing she has predicted yet (wrt Obamacare, wrt Economy QE policy etc etc ) has been proven false, which is quite remarkable.

        btw – if any readers want to hear some extremely eerie ‘fortune-telling’, (but really, predictive conclusions correctly drawn, after making accurate character assessments), listen online to Gov Sarah Palin’s RNC speech, sep 3rd 2008 ….

        America needs this TRUTH TELLER and Corruptocrat FIGHTER, Gov Sarah Palin, in the Oval Office – look at her record in AK ! She dismantled the *Corrupt B*stards Club* up there ….

        now, does America have a Corrupt B*stards’ Club in DC, operating on STEROIDS???

        Send her to DC and watch the RATS squeal as they try to RUN and HIDE!

        Also, I think it would be best if this NOT4SALE Proven Reformer is directing things from the WH as the IMPLOSION hits America in the future (we are ticking over toward 120% of GDP in debt = Greece territory)

        she is a born Exec Officer/Manager with > 20 years of experience, her most VITAL trait being, she is NOT4SALE

        that quality ALONE is the single most important one if the US Govt is to be successfully reformed and Constitutional America rescued

        imagine what a POTUS could do, if they were beholden to NOBODY, no Lobbyists, no special interest groups, no big donors … a POTUS with a SINGLE ENTRY on her IOU list = “The American People”!

        at the same time she is the most experienced Leader wrt Energy Issues and will also manage the EXPLOSION of American energy development

        both the IMPLOSION/Reform of Govt and the EXPLOSION of American energy development must kick in at exactly the same time, if Constitutional America is to survive and thrive again


        In summary then:
        America’s biggest problem =
        America’s solutions = & ~>

    Granny Palin touted #AmericanSpring pulling in barely TEN Patriot Nation protesters showing up of 30 million her Tea party had expected. The Palin-pull limped in at 2/3 less from the 3 dozen who came last time including Palin, Cruz, Rubio, Lee & Randal Paul at the White House gates proudly worshiping their Dixie swastika idol of racist defeat.
