Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin on Saturday compared the federal government borrowing money from other countries to slavery, assuring attendees at an Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition fundraiser that the notion “isnt racist” just in case.
“Our free stuff today is being paid for by taking money from our children and borrowing from China,” Palin said at the Iowa State Fairgrounds, according to the Des Moines Register. “When that money comes due – and this isn’t racist, but it’ll be like slavery when that note is due. We are going to beholden to the foreign master.”
Palin took the opportunity to speak about her new book, “Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas.”
“Christmas is under attack,” Palin said. “Enough is enough of this politically correct police out there that is acting to erode our freedom to celebrate and exercise our faith.”
Palin also criticized Republicans in Congress for failing to stop Obamacare.
“Remember their promise that they would do everything in their power to fight against socialized medicine, against Obamacare,” she said. “When it came time to stand and defund it, they waived the white flag of surrender and they threw under the bus the good guys who did stand up and fight.”
