Sojourner's Place

i just got one question...  

Posted by SjP in , ,

If you advocate secession from the Union and you even belonged to a political party that advocates secession from the Union, isn't that treason?

I'm just asking cause it seems that no one else seems to care about that the Ice Queen's babies' daddy belonged to Alaska’s separatist movement until 2002.

Can somebody help me out on this?

Speak the Truth!

Obliged to you for hearing me, and now old SjP ain't got nothing more to say.

8 sojourners hollin' back

1) Her husband was a supporter of the Alaskan Independence Party....not Gov. Palin.
2) As you point out, until 2002.
3) The AIP doesn't advocate separation by violence and I don't see how it can be called treason.
4) There is a political movement to have Hawaii secede as well.Are you suggesting that party is treasonous as well?

@ Robert, much obliged to you for stopping by, don't be a stranger the doors are always open here at SjP's.

I will concede that my use of "treason" in referring to Todd Palin's affliation with the AIP may be a stretch Constitutionally. But, to belong to a political party or movement that advocates secession from the Union is in fact un-American. And while Gov. Palin is not now or ever been a certified member of the AIP, here husband was indeed been affiliated with this party for 6 years.

I find it both ironic and a double-standard that Michelle Obama has been deemed unpatriotic for the content of a senior undergraduate thesis written over 20 years ago while Todd's affliation with a clearly un-American and unpatriotic movement and political party not come under the same scrutiny. Personally, I am much more concerned about the words of a 20-something year old trying to complete a requirement for a degree than a 40-something year old who, until recently, advocated secession from the Union. If it is true that the Palins "share governance" of Alaska as reported by the political pundits, Todd's view of the America in which we live is of great and grave importance to me.

Hell, no one is asking her anything relevant.

Voter's will have to take a stand.
Because obviously it appears that the ice queen can do no wrong...

I love the MLK cartoon! And you are not going to worry me with that B.O. picture...:-) I'll hit you up about that one.

Now down to the business of responding to the post...

I cannot imagine what it would be like if Michelle Obama had been involved in a political movement like AIP. The MSM and the GOP would of went bullistic..

With all the talk about patriotism and who is and who is not...Todd's connection with AIP is one of those affiliations that needs to be vetted. While I am sure that there are individuals who feel that has nothing to do with Sarah's bid, but succession is one of those issues that is not associated with patriotism.

It seems to have dropped in the cracks.

@ MsLady, don't you just love that picture! Had to doctor it up a bit before I posted!

Seems to me that wanting to leave th Union is a pretty serious stance...but, that's just me!

sjp, thanks for doing your part to keep this issue in the public eye!

I think that the question of whether or not indigenous groups that advocate for secession are treasonous is fodder for its own post... probably on a different blog (smile).

I completely agree with sjp that this point in raising the fact that Palin's husband was part of a secessionist group is all about the double standard that is being applied political spouses in this election. thesis makes you un-American. If you are a
