Sarah Palin’s “Racist” Rant At Obama On Facebook

    Comments are off for this post.

Sarah Palin is once again drawing ire for her words, this time aimed at a post she made on Facebook about President Obama and the way the White House handled the Libya attacks.

Using an antiquated term with a racially charged history, Palin accused Obama of doing a “shuck and jive” on the American people regarding what she called “these Benghazi lies”. Her post immediately drew fire from the Democrats, who pointed out that the term was racist; the Republicans, however, were quick to her defense, pointing out that White House press secretary Jay Carney used the same term last year during a briefing. However, he was talking about himself–a white man–when he said it, something Palin’s detractors are quick to point out.


Palin later took to Facebook in her own defense, saying that there is nothing racist about the terms she used. According to UrbanDictionary.com, however, it does have ties to the days of slavery.

To shuck and jive” originally referred to the intentionally misleading words and actions that African-Americans would employ in order to deceive racist Euro-Americans in power, both during the period of slavery and afterwards. The expression was documented as being in wide usage in the 1920s, but may have originated much earlier.

“Shucking and jiving” was a tactic of both survival and resistance. A slave, for instance, could say eagerly, “Oh, yes, Master,” and have no real intention to obey. Or an African-American man could pretend to be working hard at a task he was ordered to do, but might put up this pretense only when under observation. Both would be instances of “doin’ the old shuck ‘n jive.”

The Atlantic Wire also did some digging around as to the origin of the phrase, and found text in Explorations in the Ethnography of Speaking which also attributes it to racial slang.

“The origin of ‘shuckin’ and jivin” according to Explorations in the Ethnography of Speaking, published in 1989, is in shucking corn, and refers to using words and performance to decieve and manipulate. Some sources say it started in the slavery days, others say it’s from jazz in the 1930s. But all say it started as black slang.”

In Palin’s words:

For the record, there was nothing remotely racist in my use of the phrase “shuck and jive” – a phrase which many people have used, including Chris Matthews, Andrew Cuomo, and White House Press Secretary Jay Carney to name a few off the top of my head. In fact, Andrew Cuomo also used the phrase in reference to Barack Obama, and the fact that Mr. Cuomo and I used the phrase in relation to President Obama signifies nothing out of the ordinary. I would have used the exact same expression if I had been writing about President Carter, whose foreign policy rivaled Obama’s in its ineptitude, or about the Nixon administration, which was also famously rocked by a cover-up.

I’ve been known to use the phrase most often when chastising my daughter Piper to stop procrastinating and do her homework. As she is part Yup’ik Eskimo, I’m not sure if this term would be deemed offensive when it’s directed at her or if it would be considered benign as in the case of Chris Matthews’ use of it in reference to Rachel Maddow. Just to be careful, from now on I’ll avoid using it with Piper, and I would appreciate it if the media refrained from using words and phrases like igloo, Eskimo Pie, and “when hell freezes over,” as they might be considered offensive by my extended Alaska Native family.

The outrageously outraged reaction to this expression from perennial hypocrites like Chris Matthews has only made me laugh. Mr. Matthews, let me share with you my favorite Irish toast: “May we always be happy, and may our enemies always know it.”

    There is nothing new in Mrs Palin’s ranting. Disturbing is the racist language coming at this time, barely two weeks before the national elections.This can be seen as a last minute attempt to incite and divide the American people who are only too aware of such distraction as from the politician, Sarah Palin.

    • http://yahoo Bruce

      Why was it not racist when Chris Matthews, Coumo and other democrats but is racist when Palin says it? You people accusing her of this are such hypocrites.

  • http://2011Taxes.org Steve

    I don’t think she meant to be racists and only mentions the president at the very end. Probably doesn’t know the origin of shuck and jive.

    Same Old Same Old Liberals Never Like Facts that Hurt their Socialist Leader ~ If Obama Said

    It wasn’t Raining as Rain drops were Falling on His Head through Your Liberals Eyes You All

    would Still See Obama Words As the Truth and We always Know we can count on the endless

    name calling Which I Believe I heard Obama Say he was going to end , well at least while he was running for the office and when He Got in Oval office He told the Left or His Followers to ”

    Get right up into their FACES Of the tea Party Members. I understand we have different world views But the thing is here in America We The People Are the Boss’s I understand the Some

    weaker among us would Like to Government to Hold their Hands all the way through their Lives , Which is a poor way to live out a Life full of Liberty and Freedom that the Unit States Constitution Blesses us With.

    Gov Palin I do not think Palin care about the Color of Obama Skin and he’s as must white as He is Black , Palin Like Most conservative disapprove Of Obama’s Leftist socialist Agenda which is

    leading us, all of us down a road of Destruction. Palin words were chosen in advance of saying them and I believe were not racist ; Case and Point a few years ago i was sitting in a Cafe a

    Black guy which was a friend As He got his coffee He turn to me and Said Don’t You start I know How You People Are! and I said No it’s Not Us People it You People that got a Problem! People

    started Backing away from Us and then We Both Laugh ~ You see we both understand His words and My words have the same power and that power is what you give to the words spoken.

    I Understand that the Weaker among US Which are Use By The Liberal Democrats instead of educated them about What True Liberal Looks Like Your Own Job or Your Own Business and Your Own Money , Which Equal true Liberty and Freedom ~

    By the Way I have Not Voted in eight Years Because after thirty Years of Voting I saw no Matter which Party was in Office we were Creeping toward Socialism and I wish to have No Part of.

    However With Obama He put Socialism on the fast Track So I will Be Voting for Mitt Romney Hopefully He will Slow the Train down and My two Daughters will at Least part of their Lives

    Understand what LIBERTY and TRUE FREEDOM means and what It’s Like to Live in it ~

      what a silly bitch Palin is…I guess alaska is just too far from the limelight to suit her so she flings herself into public with an uneducated rant…way to go sarah…every time you speak the democrats gain ground….lol keep talkin

      • Sam

        Randy, i don’t know where to start, i can only say you are a MORON.

    • Brandon Hayes

      It’s too bad sir, socialism would have provided you a better education.

      • Sam

        Brandon,why don’t pack up and head for Cuba or Russia!

        • Brandon Hayes

          Way to choose two Communist countries in your ‘argument’. Now go look at countries like Denmark, Norway, and Belgium and get back to me. Countries that have all adopted socialized programs that support things such as, but not limited to: free healthcare at all times, free education from elementary all the way up to your college degree, and a year of paid maternity leave (which pays doubly in the end). These countries also happen to be ‘the happiest countries in the world’ year after year. You think there is a correlation?

          Of course, when I say free, they are in fact paying for it because they all pay 40-55% personal tax rates. All of which, individuals pay 25-50% more than corporations. And those corporations pay 10-20% less than those in the United States. That’s the biggest thing we bitch about in the United States, our taxes. That and gas prices, which we currently pay half of what the rest of the world is. Selfish…

          Face it, the majority of people are irresponsible with what little money they can make and blow their money on things they really don’t need, and let things like their health and education take a back seat to whatever nonsense the media is telling them to buy this year. It should be spent on things like healthcare and their children’s education, and for them if they are too irresponsible to it themselves.

          It’s not just the lower and middle classes that are irresponsible. These ‘clicks’ of business owners rigging systems to make each other richer comes to mind. These CEO’s who are supposed to be taking care of their employees, instead laying off thousands of employees when profits go down, in order to ensure that they still get their bonus that year on top of their million dollar salaries, filling their own pockets until their companies go bankrupt. It’s funny because at this point, big government it their best friend! Bail-out please! And they start working on running it all into the ground again. No human being needs more than a million dollars a year to survive, and that it pushing it. Yes, of course we should award excellence and achievement, that is how innovation comes about, but I think that it has gotten out of control.

          In the end, I may one day just take you up on your offer and move to one of the countries that ‘I’ spoke of, but I am currently right in the middle of a 20 year career in the military, serving the country that I love. The reason I argue so much is that I hate seeing it go to hell because the people at the top are unwilling to admit we didn’t get it quite right, and the people at the bottom have been there so long that they can’t see it. At this point, if you are a Republican, and you are not a white man that makes more than a few million a year, you are doing it wrong.

          **In the end, what I am trying to say is that strictly capitalism is just as horrible an idea as strictly communism. As soon as the people of the United States stop seeing ‘Red’ every time they hear the word socialism, the sooner we can be out of this slump, and all be part of a country that cares for each other more than the number of digits in their bank accounts…

    • Cheryl T

      WOW listed to conservative talks shows much. I wouldn’t mind you having an opinion but you don’t your just spouting what your told. I know you hate the facts but When did personal responsibility become a bad word it’s not Obamacare it’s Romneycare. Why is it when he thought people should pay for their healthcare that was right but now it’s wrong. He was a democrat before he was a republican he was pro choice before he was pro life he thought Obama’s foreign policy was bad before he thought it was good. How can you support a man who can’t make up his mind what he stands for.

    • james d snover

      great responds all liberals are either lazy ,nuts or fools, and all of them are waiting for their next hand out, if they are looking for a hand, why don’t they look at the end of thier arm.


  • http://yahoo waytogoSJ

    I don’t think Sarah Palin is racist because she still has Glenn Rice Prick in her mouth. She was McCAin downfall, and she left her governor job thinkiong the public like her. They only clap for you because you are in the audience, and on tv. after you are gone nobody gives a hoot about her. she needs to shut up for a minute and stop running around here attacking Obama. this will not help you to run for Pressident. Romney and Palin needs to understand that this is about the people and their needs, and if Romney has any info that could help Obama to make our nation a better one, then he should have disclosed that to him long ago instead of trying to hold on that info for his own presidential attributes. He is such a selfish man. Palin since you can see Russia from where you are, why don’t you do all of us a favor go live there. And get over it already your politician days are not to be believable. McCain help you with that.

  • http://yahoo waytogoSJ

    Palin reminds me of Honey Boo Boo child. she desperately needs help. Why don’t you sit down and talk to Obama instead of judging him from a far B%%%h. Maybe he would help get you image back on the political circuit. Thats why her daughter is acting the way she is acting. Shut up already!!

  • judithmatton

    Empty barrels make the most noise.

    • pat

      research what? she didn’t even finish her term as governor, she quits when things get a little bit tough. maybe she should go back to sitting on her front porch and keep an eye on Russia, she doesn’t know any thing about foreign policy but boy she thinks she does,just because mccain thought using her for bait meat made her smarter, but the last laugh is on her cause she makes an idiot of herself every time she opens her mouth. (keep us safe from Russia sweetie)

  • Bill589

    The people who believe they dislike Sarah Palin the most, don’t know anything true about her. Know what you think you dislike. Research.

    The people that know her best tend to like her. Especially the commonsense constitutional conservatives, but even those who do not share her political views.

  • Lisa

    I laughed and laughed because she’s too busy slamming the President of the United States and laughing up Couler’s ret***d wording. Why was she soooooooooo upset when it was used by RE and not Rush, because he’s an entertainer, and now it’s being used and she’s forgot all about it being a “bad word”. Watch, she’ll be at a “rest spa” soon due to “stress” from all that “dieting”. The prez doesn’t even remember her now but she thinks of him 24/7! Too funny!

    • Sam

      Lisa, i feel sorry for you,you are being brain washed by Obama-mania, all i can say is that, Obama will lose , you will lose your independent, are you afraid of having to get off duff and earn your living for a change.

    Sarah Palin’s comments were racist comments. Sarah Palin makes her living thinking up nasty things to say about a black president. She is on Fox News which is a Republican propaganda outlet. Nothing to see here folks, move along now.

    • Wanda

      Little Larry you seriously want to make it about race when we have a President in Office that did nothing to help 4 Americans fighting for their lives for 7 hours then has lied about it for weeks. Stop being brain washed by Liberal Media who only allow you to hear what Obama wants you to hear. Do you think he advised Military to Stand down because those men were White or Christian? Either way he is responible for their deaths and the lies he has continued to tell regardless of the facts flooding in by the Pentagon.

    The awful behavior of the Dems at the debates is overlooked, why? If a Rep behaved that way they would be criticized.

    Just because you happen to be a Dem, does make it fair to criticize only the Rep’s, for goodness sakes.

    Benghazi was the reason for her comment. Our Ambassador and three men were killed in Libya. When the initial attack happened an e-mail, from the consulate in Benghazi, was sent out to at least four hundred individuals in different government agencies. We had drone planes flying overhead in real time watching. Within twenty four hours, our government knew this was a coordinated attack by terrorists. For over a week Obama, Hillary, and Secretary Rice said it was a spontaneous uprising over a video on You Tube. They knew this was not true. They watched from the drones. We have an administration that is lying and four innocent people died.

    Sarah Palin has to make an announcement every time she farts. She has brought nastiness to politics. Romney is trying his best to bring discussions to a higher level and not to personal attacks–but Sarah is just a Grizzly Granny and bitpull with plastic surgery. Bristol is just as dumb and anyone being asked now about who is hotter would choose Joanne Moore rather than the dope fiend Palin. Look at her nose–and all the plastic surgery in the world will not make a potty mouth pretty. Sarah has aged at least twenty years since 2008–all that hate and acting like a snake or barracuda is nothing to be proud of.

  • Lona

    Must be tough at the Palin household–none of them have jobs so they blame all their problems on President Obama. Sarah has been a failure as mayor, half term Governor, energy board member, book, and cancelled reality show. Bristol has failed at being a responsible parent, student, radio show host, unreality series, author and dancer. Willow has failed hair dresser school. Track couldn’t get into college and went back to the military. Piper has failed public school so now is home schooled. Chuckie has flunked as a teacher and now claims to be a gold miner. Toad isn’t working in the oil fields and only works two weeks per year as a fisherman. What is a person without a job and no intelligence to do? Sarah can continue to sit on her porch and look at Russia, but that won’t pay for her staff writing her Facebook and Twitter pages. Bristol can practice her dancing steps as she waits for Obama to call her, but that won’t pay for her nannies. Todd can have fun going to his masseuse in Anchorage, but knows that the real money is in being a pimp. Willow could try to find work but she doesn’t want to be a nanny and doesn’t want to work evenings or weekends. Looks like the only way these losers can look important is by saying racist comments or criticizing the President and his family. Not fun being a Christian–people expect your actions to reflect whether or not you are one. Or…..maybe Bristol and Sarah could get rich by hiring Nancy French to write the Palin Bible.

    • Wanda

      Lona, You must really love the Palin’s since you claim to be such an expert on their lives. Do you know that much about Obama? Do you know he has a CT Social Security # but has never lived there? If you were using someone elses SSN wouldn’t that be Indentiy theif. His Birth Certificate he finally released after all this time has 16 layers of forgeries, how did Obama travel to Pakastan in the early 80’s? He couldn’t do that if he had a US passport. It’s the simple questions in life he has failed to answer and lets not forget the big ole’ elephant in the room of why you are attacking the Palin’s which is way off base from the article or why she said what she said.
      Why did he lie to AMERICA about Lybia?

    Sarah Palin is definitely mentally ill. She thinks like Hitler did–she gets to decide who is good and who is bad and that everyone wants to hear her opinion. A sane person would look at how little the American public think of this bimbo and her family of grifters and then try to fade away. Sarah is poisonous with her hatred for all Democrats–and thinking that she can talk her fans into hating anyone she disagrees with. Romney says that he will try to work with both sides of the aisle–clearly Palin would not be able to have any position in his cabinet. She is toxic and cannot get along with anyone–that is why they call her barracuda or the pit bull or the Queen of Quitters. She will knife you in the back and see nothing wrong with it if it means she is getting one step higher on the ladder. 90% of the voters say they wouldn’t vote for her but she still thinks that everyone wants to hear her nonsense.

    • Wanda

      Karen, Your ranting like most Demwits who know nothing and focusing on a couple of words instead of the bigger picture!
      Four Americans lost their lives in Libya fighting for 7 hours and Obama and his Admintration advised to Stand down to rescue refusing to send help to save those men after three calls for help. Then down played the attack for weeks referring to a YouTube video and attacking a man who lives in the US who is in fear for his and his families safety in our own country. Obama, Clinton, Carney, Rice, CIA and the list goes on had knowledge of the attack as it was happening as they had live video feed with unmaned drones delivering coverage. The Obama Admintration has been lieing and covering up and if you are going to go after Sarah Palin for calling it what it is regardless of how she said it then Karen you need to pull your head out of your Dimwitted Ass and wake up to what is going on instead of what the Liberal media is releasing. Sarah Palin is a private citizen who has a voice and using and saying exactly how I feel “OUTRAGED”, “DISGUSTED”, “MY HEART ACHES” Knowing what really happened during those 7 hours of those brave men who lost their lives calling for help, calling for backup, calling for America not to forsake them. Obama will go down in History that it was more important to precede with his Campaign to fly to Vegas, Colo, appear on Jay Leno, Jon Stewart anything but do his job and protect not just our Men and Women that are in harms way but our country as a whole. He wanted to use it to drum up outrage over his Muslim faith and he is a disgrace to all of American’s and you should do some research and educate yourself
      because Sarah Palin isn’t the enemy.

        Wanda, you seem to know everything that went on. Where did you get your intel, from Sarah/dumb-s–t/Palaver? There is no president, past, sitting or future who would not provide assistance to any American if the resources and time permitted it. Why are you the only person who is aware of the President of the United States telling our combat forces to stand down and not defend the U.S. Consulate? Karen was focusing on the bigger picture and not just a couple of words, and the bigger picture was the ignorance of one dimwit who don’t have a clue, and it appears neither do you.

    It does not speak well for Alaskans to have this semi-literate,head-line grabber as a spokesperson for their state. She has done remarkably well financially after getting out of politics given her intellectual status and border line retardation. I hope her millions can possibly off-set the humiliation Alaskans have had to endure given her propensity to be so out front. We here in Texas have had to endure the same thing, more or less, with Gov. Rick Perry.

    • Easy

      Leo, please try to understand what I will say about your comment of Sarah Palin. First, Palin is from Alaska but has not been appointed to represent Alaska. You are being rude to the people of Alaska. Do you not think Obama has financially improved his pocket book as president as well? Do you not think you are hurting people when you use the word “retardation”? Do you not think that families of folk that are not as smart as you are get their feeling hurt? Yet, you comment on Palin being close to retardation. How did you come up with that conclusion? If Palin’s use of words hurt you, your doing the same thing. What has Gov. Perry done to you? I have lived in Texas all my life. In comparison to the rest of the nation, housing, gas, and just basic living is relatively not as bad as other states. Come on Leo, get it together. Don’t be a hypocrite. Be a leader not a follower. Chris Mathews used the words “shucking and jiving” and to date has not been persecuted. Why do you hate Palin? She has a right to voice her opinion. It does not matter what words she uses. It’s politics guy. When Romney wins, I hope you will be able to handle it, because if Obama wins I will be able to handle it. Don’t let politics get to you. Have a Blessed Day.

    Sarah “superStupid” Palin is a racist snd those of us who are affected by her lack of discretion by the things that come out her of ignorant mouth are not surprised. But, you know what, we don’t expect anything else from her. She continually shows how dumb she is and she really doesn’t care. She will do anything to prostitute herself to be in the limelight of the ignorance that surrounds her. All she really is doing is expressing the ignorance and hatred that is really the fabric of most of these racists who call themselves patriots. But, what they are in truth are David Duke Klansmen dressed in the new attire to deceive those who are more ignorant than herself/themselves. These people are the reasons why we are hated by so many other people in the world. They represent nothing about fairness and equality because their ignorance and narcissism have given them nothing to relate to the people who really want this country to grow to true greatness. She is a fraud, propped up on display by a fraudulent political party that has no other desire but to steal, kill, and destroy anyone and anything that would bring about a better world and a world of peace for everyone. They continually operate from a position of fear of reprisal because they are well aware of the dirt that they do. COWARDS! All of them and their kind are cowards who know that to let someone else have a chance would only serve to show the world their true weaknesses. And lastly, they are the least of the people in this land who can honestly call themselves Americans. Nothing they say or do embodies the intentions of those pioneers and forefathers who sought to establish freedom, equality, and justice for ALL!!!!

    and NO! palin is NOT racist, shes TRUTHFUL. THERES A DIFFERENCE! OPEN YOUR EYES and your ears to what she says. Are you blind, def, or just plain stupid yourself Mr. Moore?
    You use the term prostitute loosly like you might know a few! You mock her and think for one minute that obama will bring peace. i only hear lunacy in your talk. i personally think you should read more. if youre looking to obama to lead you then take a number cause thats all you are to him and his way of governing your life will lead to you being his slave in the end! with obama in charge democracy has come to you being his slave. and thats no jive cause youre on your way with this thinking to become his next turkey for Thaksgiving! go ahead and think this way and DONT DO COMPLETE RESEARCH because youll be the next ham on his plate!

    Amanda Crum, your the only ONE THATS A RACIST, or to put it a different way. YOU ARE A LOT MORE RACIST THAN SARAH PALIN WILL EVER BE!! You should be totally ashamed, but a person of your nature CAN’T BE ASHAMED, BECAUSE YOUR JUST STUPID! Amercia can fix a laundry list of things, however, YOU CAN’T FIX STUPID !!

    My goodness, Palin is really rough on the poor man, you can list 20 meanings to (Jive ) 40 more for (Shuck). It seems your making your own meaning, perhaps you have a problem.
    I’ve bred livestock all my life, a hereford crossed with a angus is called a black white face. You can register no breed that is 50-50. In order to be of one breed, you have to be at least 7/8, bred to a purebred. What race was Palin talking about ??? can we pick ???

  • lana berg

    If the shoe fits……to me it describes exactly the method that Obama uses to duck and dodge….is there a negative that that conotation raises? How bout this one., “grasping for straws”.

    Poor dumb Sarah, wanting to talk like a Black person and failing. Time for her to show us HER birth certificate. Or has she hired a Black Person to take over her Facebook account and start being in charge of Pipee’s education. Her excuses really aren’t that believable–especially about how she is living in an igloo.

  • taylor

    sounds like Sarah Palin is jealous because she isn’t getting nay shucking or jiving at home.

  • sodakhic

    If Obama survives Nov 6, he’ll be shucking and jiving going through impeachment hearings.

    This is just more of the same from the bleeding heart liberals. They have nothing better to do
    that give people a load of false rage over something they try to twist around in their mosquito sized
    brains. Sorry if the the truth hurts liberals…….

  • Uhh Duhhh

    Yep, I see where Sarah Palin is coming from.

    Let’s all agree with Mr. Romney and say it with me now, I know yah can,, “Let Detroit Go Bankrupt” …then we will say now that those pesky dems let Detroit go Bankrupt we will rant and yell that they lost all of them jobs in the auto industry….

    Mann…Sarah Palin … you are like some total teaparty guru…..why don’t you run? No, I mean it…. Run…. Run to Canada please.

    I know what you are thinking did I say total failure 5x or 6… well ?….. … That’s funny. If GW Bush [Bush 43 for you at home keeping score] would have gotten bin Laden, restored the banking industry, stock market gone from 6500 to 13000+ today, Housing sales increasing [UP 8% this month alone], saved the auto industry from bankruptcy and brought troops home from Iraq, that republican would have been hailed as the Best President in History accomplishing all of that in 3.5 years.

    That we can be sure of… So just why are Republicans thinking that they are Fed Up and all of the above is all bad and wrong for the country? …..That’s something to be Fed Up over????

    Stock market ,..double that of GW Bush 43….Shame on you ….You pesky socialists. Ridding bid Laden and accomplishing the mission…. you stupid democrats….that war was planned for at least 20 years of activity….peace is not good…..What could those dang democrats be up to? Don’t they know republicans are pro-life but only when it is related to babies…..I know it’s enough to make people Fed Up..

    ..The problem is when Romney shucks and jives it just isn’t funny!
    You see Romney wants 2 TRILLION dollars for the military even when
    the military leaders are not asking for 2 TRILLION Dollars.

    Romney is a Fiscal Conservative? You better trust his words. Either Romney is going to waste 2 TRILLION Dollars on spending that the military is not asking for or Romney plans on spending it to GO TO WAR with Iran and Syria and Nation Build? Surely he is not going to lie about such matters, is he?

    21+ year old young voters better be paying attention. You will be the first to go to Iran and Syria.
