According to the Huffington Post on Friday the former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin blasted GOP Senator Marco Rubio's efforts to craft a bill, comparing him to the biblical Judas.
'Obama Calls Rubio to Congratulate Him on Immigration Reform... Hope it was worth 30 pieces of silver,' she tweeted under her user name @SarahPalinUSA.
A day before the comprehensive immigration reform bill passed in the Senate 68-32, elating immigration rights groups nationwide. Fourteen Republicans - including Rubio - joined with every Democrat to vote for the amended bill.
The bill now goes to Congress and Palin wasted no time taking to Facebook on Friday to warn House Republicans not to pass it.
'Great job, GOP establishment,' she wrote. 'You’ve just abandoned the Reagan Democrats with this amnesty bill, and we needed them to 'enlarge that tent' of which you so often speak. It’s depressing to consider that the House of Representatives is threatening to pass some version of this nonsensical bill in the coming weeks.'
Palin disputed that Republicans lost the 2012 election due to the Hispanic vote. Instead, she concluded that Republicans lost working-class (presumably white) voters in swing states.
She also claimed Republicans 'disrespect' Hispanic voters by assuming they want to ignore the rule of law (by coming to the US illegally).
'Folks like me are barely hanging on to our enlistment papers in any political party,' she wrote, 'and it’s precisely because flip-flopping political actions like amnesty force us to ask how much more bull from both the elephants in the Republican Party and the jackasses in the Democrat Party we have to swallow before these political machines totally abandon the average commonsense hardworking American.'
Palin went on to say that if the GOP-led House passes the Senate bill 'we’ll know that both private political parties have finally turned their backs on us. It will then be time to show our parties’ hierarchies what we think of being members of either one of these out-of-touch, arrogant, and dysfunctional political machines,' she concluded.
