Sarah Palin: Obama’s Shuck and Jive Ends With Benghazi Lies – Left responds ‘RACIST!!!!’


Sarah Palin is trying to get the media to pay attention to the Benghazi cover up:

As I mentioned on “On the Record” last night, there is breaking news that just two hours after the September 11th attacks on our consulate in Benghazi, the White House and State Department knew that an Islamic terrorist group with ties to al Qaeda claimed credit for the attack. We now know that the State Department sent an email to the White House, the Pentagon, the FBI and others in the intelligence community about this Islamist group claiming responsibility. And yet for days afterwards the White House and State Department led everyone to believe that the attack was the result of a spontaneous protest over an obscure YouTube video that had been uploaded months prior. Anywhere from 300 to 400 people from the administration and our intelligence community would have seen that email. Why the lies? Why the cover up? Why the dissembling about the cause of the murder of our ambassador on the anniversary of the worst terrorist attacks on American soil? We deserve answers to this. President Obama’s shuck and jive shtick with these Benghazi lies must end.

– Sarah Palin

Despite her attempts, the left seems to want to focus on something else entirely:

Think Progress: Palin Uses Slavery-Era Phrase To Describe Obama’s Libya Response

Palin’s title and final sentence show an extreme insensitivity to the racial history of the phrase. The concept of “shuck and jive” originated in the Deep South, as a term that referred to the overly subservient language that African-Americans used towards whites. Blacks, during the time of slavery or the Jim Crow segregation period, could shuck and jive to either put on the illusion of doing work when being watched or to feign obedience to those in power. While the phrase has morphed over the years to mean something more bland, akin to “acting facetiously,” the connection between the President’s race and Palin’s phrasing can’t be overlooked. Palin slams Obama’s “shuck and jive”  The former vice presidential nominee weighs in on Libya — and slips in some not-so-casual racism

Hip Hop WiredSarah Palin Calls President Obama’s Handling Of Libya Attack A “Shuck & Jive Shtick”

This is getting ridiculous. President Obama has to fend off racism from average citizens, and even those in the political spotlight, like Sarah Palin. … The term—which has racially insensitive overtones—is commonly used to depict a person as a fool, and is usually spewed at Black people.

Just to name a few.

UPDATE: FLASHBACK – Carney says he’s going to Shuck and Jive.

  1. When they have no defense they always turn to the race card. Just saw the movie 2016, the last half hour adds more lies and deceit to what we already know about the Obama regime. His own brother George Obama disagrees with Obamas policies, it is in the movie where George Obama explains to D’Souza his opinion. George was abandoned by Barack and lives in a poor village, something we can all figure out because George disagrees with his brother.


  2. I have never seen her so upset when she appeared with Greta last night. Her anger border lined with an almost cry for battle. Her son after all, volunteered so in order we have free speech and is under SCOAMF’s command.

  3. Ya know, it is almost unfair the way Palin outmanouvers the media to cover a story that they would rather leave buried. Just a little phrase, ‘shuck and jive’, and she’s got them screaming their racist ire!
    And now, because of Palin, millions of words are being printed and spoken about Benhgazi.

    Who here still believes the lefty’s are actually smart? The evidence shows a different result. They are dumber then a box of rocks.
    ( Actually, the rocks are smarter! THEY know better then to fall for Mrs. Palins baiting!)
    One little phrase by Palin and the media and left come unglued. The result? Palin has THEM talking about Benghazi! It’s just TOO easy!

    Sarah, you are picking on inferior intellects! They don’t have a clue! I love it!

  4. You all need to check out Sarah Palin’s newest Facebook post. it was just posted about 20 minutes ago..:)

    It’s Classic!

  5. You folks still don’t understand the brilliance of Sarah Palin.

    She will always use terminology that will set the left on a rampage which will bring the discussion she wants out into the light of day. They will always play into her hand because they just cannot help themselves. They are infected with Palin Derangement Syndrome and she knows this.

    Remember these quips of Sarah’s:

    “Death Panels”.

    “Party like it’s 1773”.

    “Revere telling the British you are not taking our guns. We’re waiting for you”.

    Once again she is showing the Lame Stream Media up for the fools that they are, while at the same time making them talk about Benghazi and our dead in the Consulate of Libya, and the terrible response by the Obama Dysfunctional Administration.

  6. Ah yes. The race card. They have nothing else to parry against Gov Palin. Notice there is no discussion about the points she makes. Just a “look squirrel” of racism. Jeez this gets old.

  7. Trouble is the phrase is actually southern in nature not just black. If the left has their way we will have no history and no language left to use since it will all be deemed racist.

    They also left out anti-Semite since schtick originated with…wait for it….DA JOOS!!!!

  8. Have you ever noticed that to a racist/liberal, anything they say is truth, and anything a conservative may say is, racist, lying, criminal, mis-information, etc.

    Don’t you just love the even playing field between the two sides!
    Keep on telling the truth Palin, cause the left is going to hate you anyway. Hate is their reason for being.

  9. Obama Press Sec Uses Questionable ‘Shuck and Jive’ Phrase at Briefing:

    And no one accused Carney of being a racist like they did Sarah Palin.

    They are clearly a mentally ill group that is suffering being out of touch with reality.

      1. Thanks K-Bob, i missed that, i was on twitter today and could not believe the attacks on Palin. It was very vile, despicable name calling. They are like rabid dogs when they gather. They did the same thing to The Donald after his announcement. Even pseudo journalist @KeithOlbermann was accusing her of making a racist remark.

        1. Hmmm. I’ll bet there was coverage of that at Twitchy (Malkin’s new site). Let’s see…

          Yup, there is! Thanks for calling it to my attention.

          Andrew Breitbart loved re-tweeting the hate messages he got. I think Palin should do likewise.

          We have people threatening Romney’s life on twitter, so this level of idiocy isn’t even shocking anymore. I hope they all get arrested.

  10. …Mao Obama lies Americans die in Libya September 11th 2012 . Who you going to vote 4


    there is NO other choice,

    just make sure YOU VOTE .”(period)

  11. Chris Matthews is having a field day about this tonight on his show (here’s my surprised look).

    Liberals are so busy studying the peanut on the ground, they completely miss the elephant in the room. Four dead Americans and a W.H. cover-up? Nah. Let’s talk about Sarah Palin’s use of the phrase shuck & jive.

      1. Thanks idesign2. It IS a killer. Can someone dig up that tape of Chris Matthews using it in reference to Rachel Maddow? Can we make it go viral?? How rich is that!?!?

  12. Isn’t it sad that we elect a black president only to find the left screaming racism every chance they get. I’d love to see some statistics on the use of the word racism covering the 4 years prior to Obama being elected compared to the for years during his presidency.

  13. The two words to best describe the methodology of the attacks by the current administration are easy to identify and speak. It is the understanding of these words by liberals that are difficult. Hypocrisy – defined as doing something you will condemn others for doing while freely participating in. The liberal left has had no problem trying to attach the label of racist to any who disagrees with Obama. When the target of interest is African American like Herman Cain, Senator Allan West or the strong African American Republican woman Mia Love, the tactics change to calling them…well I will be above that. The second word I leave you with is Narcissism – egotism, vanity, conceit, or simple selfishness. The meaning of these words can easily be seen in much of the rhetoric pushed out by the current administration. The fact remains that the term used By Mrs. Palin was not spewed in a racist manner and the trem has been infused and used by many ethnic groups throughout the 60’s and 70’s. Much like the big deal the media tried to make out of the “Binder” as spoken by Mr. Romney, this is just another attempt to push a double standard. Much like the interview by Bill O’Rielly of Dr. Lamont Hill on his book, Over Rated White People. O’rielly asked Dr. Hill if isn’t that racist? Of course Dr. Hill, being an African American Replied “No.” (double standard)

  14. They are trying to redirect the focus here-if you give Barack the benefit of the doubt-then at best he is incompetent(which is bad for Americans) at worst he is a liar(which is bad for Americans)-either way he doesn’t deserve another term! In other words he is incapable of doing what is right and good and honest!

  15. All Sarah Palin did was quote Jay Carney ( White House Press Secretary ) and use his exact words “Shuck & Jive”.

  16. She should have said that the idiot is a liar, knew what happened, and misled the American public, and is a race-baiting Marxist that will only see one term. None of that sentence would have been confused as being racist.

  17. Shuckin’ and Jivin: to pacify (or string along) by giving the impression that you are doing or are going to do something without really having any intention of getting it done. It is an apt descriptor for trying to wiggle out of a bad situation.

    Why is it racist for Sarah Palin to use it but OK for Jay Carney to use it.

    White House press secretary Jay Carney at the beginning of his Wednesday briefing reacts after bringing out the wrong notebook: “Sorry. I’m going to shuck and jive! Time to shuck and jive.”

  18. This phrase dates to slavery, and refers to a slave stealing from his or her master and then trying to lie their way out of it. Shuck is the attempt to get rid of the evidence, and jive is the lie.

    If, say, Nancy Pelosi had used this phrase while denigrating Herman Cain the outcry would still be echoing from this site and all other right wing sites. The difference between liberals and right wingers (in this instance) is that liberals would also condemn Pelosi’s comment as racist.

    Instead of shrilly ridiculing liberals’ reaction, perhaps you could explain how it isn’t racist, and even if it were, why you wouldn’t care.

      1. Hi Jacjjohn,

        Thank you for your reply, You are the only one who did not resort to insults and name-calling.

        I hadn’t heard of Carney’s use of Shuck and Jive, thank you for the link. But I think there is a subtle difference in that Carney was referring to himself. To a certain degree racism is simply offending a particular race of religion, and as such it is much like a shot of booze. It only has effect if you accept it.

        Still, it can be offensive, and some sticks and stones are harder to shrug off than others. Sarah Palin could have chosen other words to express the same thought, such as “dancing around the truth” or “ducking behind smoke and mirrors.” Has she so chosen, the focus would have been on her message rather than her method.

        Again, thank you for not calling me names.

    1. You’re dreaming. Liberals can say anything they want and are never called on it. And who knows that better than Sarah Palin? The misogyny directed at her by the men and women of the left has been savage and no one on that side came to her defense. And she is a fellow human being, and a woman. Please don’t peddle that line because it’s laughable.

      1. Hi conservativemama,

        I’m not sure just what you think I am dreaming about; please enlighten me.
        Please call Liberals on their (our) racism. And, please elaborate on the laughable line you claim I am peddling.

        Misogyny is a hatred of all women, not just one woman. I’m not even hinting that there are not pin-headed and childish liberals who used insults and name calling when attacking Sarah Palin. I had a letter to the editor of our local newspaper (2008 campaign) wherein I defended her.

        Merely disagreeing is not the same as hating someone. And, using misogyny as you did, what is your take on the treatment afforded Hillary Clinton? Any difference?

        1. Well first of all Hillary Clinton. I am not a fan of Hillary Clinton. I find her much too dependent as a woman. Bill, Obama, she’s a hanger-on. That said, she has suffered sexism, especially during the 2008 primaries. The men on MSNBC were so enthralled with Obama that they did give her the treatment they usually reserve for conservative women. And to be fair about it, yes, men on the right have not been kind to her. I think any comments on women’s appearance is just wrong. I’ll even throw in Debbie W. Schultz. Politically I find that woman repellant, and also just plain ignorant. But I cannot support insults about her appearance. That’s never right and it’s painful. We women are hard enough on ourselves about that.

          I never hear liberals condemning sexism when it’s directed at conservative women. In fact I hear the opposite. I hear squishy justifications for the ugly statements. But I’m not surprised. I’ve been a conservative my whole life and I’ve heard my share of insults. I don’t insult others to their face, but it’s been done to me by liberals.

          So yes, I do believe it will be a cold day in hell before any leftist feminist or any liberal comes to the defense of Sarah Palin or any conservative woman. In fact, the women of the left have been the worse when it comes to Palin. And the RINO women are no better. Mean girls indeed.

          As for the shuck and jive, it’s Palin playing the liberals. She knows they’re Pavlov’s dogs when it comes to her so just throws it out there and knows how to get them going. The point of her Facebook note was to draw attention to the horror of what happened in Libya and the questions that we deserve answers to. I’d say she accomplished that.

          Palin is a self-made woman. No husband, no father, no other man pulled the strings for her. She’s accomplished a great deal on her own. I was reading about her months before McCain chose her. And the fact that she’s done all she has while married to one man, raising 5 children, is just something I admire and relate to. Plus the fact that the hate directed at her from the left and the RINOs never stops her. I can think of no woman on the left that comes close. None. Dependence on government is not freedom, it’s not liberation, it’s not emancipation. But it’s what the Democrats peddle.

          I am a woman. I am hispanic. I’m a conservative.

    2. Nobody has a patent on language or how it is used. That’s like blacks can call each ni****s and it’s fine. That will never make sense. So if I use the phrase, let’s call a spade a spade, is that racist too!

      Only racist see it as racist.

    3. Oh, yeah, you see lefties like yourself pointing out your own racism ALL THE TIME! /sarc

      I think most Americans have just about had with you ‘bemused’ lefties. Nobody here is ‘shrill’. You are projecting again, which is really all you know how to do.

  19. “Shuck and jive” is an old expression; it originally referred to a slave stealing from his master. I think shuck refers to trying to ditch the evidence, and then attempting to lie (jiving) his way out of it. It is a very racist comment, and if not right wing person had used the phrase in denigrating Herman Cain, the indignant outcry from this site and all other right wing sites would still be echoing through the land.

  20. Just look at Chris Matthews (the dog-in-heat guy who gets chills up his leg when O speaks). He is the racist! He continously pulls the race card! He is soooo desperate!!! What a huge JERK he is!!! He isn’t the impartial news commentator he is called upon to be…he is an Obama lacky!!! He should be on the Obama campaign staff!!! Let’s hope he has a NERVOUS BREAKDOWN when Obama loses!!!!

  21. Jay Carnry must be racist..:)

    White House press secretary Jay Carney at the beginning of his briefing reacts after bringing out the wrong notebook: “Sorry. I’m going to shuck and jive! Time to shuck and jive.”

  22. Is the pres. black? Does he push responsibility off on everyone else? Yes on both counts, description fits so get over yourselves. Not everything is racist. You would have to believe “everyone” of a certain race was the same and they are not. Just BO in this case.

  23. Pity the far left doesn’t care about the lives of the four Americans lost in Libya. Americans want answers and this president has not even had one press conference on Libya, let alone made a speech to the American public regarding any new information on the attack in Libya on 9/11. This is disgraceful and it will be one of the many reasons why Obama will lose. He is lying about Libya and the facts are slowly dripping out. At this rate, that slow drip will turn into a flood by Election Day.

    1. They didn’t care about the Border Patrol Agent Terry nor the scores of Mexican children killed as a result of Fast and Furious, what would make you think they’d care about a few more dead as a result of another 0 ploy.

  24. Keep selling that race crap, lefties. We all know you love race and racism, and special interest group politics, and class warfare. Anything to divide and create antagonism, that’s you. You no longer wear the sheets over your heads, with those pointy caps and stupid names like “Grand Cyclops,” but we know who you are anyway.

    Anything to stifle liberty and promote slavery, that’s you.

    Anything for power over others, that’s you.

    And you are about to be wiped out.

    Again. Losers.

  25. Think Progress’ is for all practical purposes the antithesis of the KKK. Publishing opinions of Think Progress is akin to publishing opinions of the KKK.

  26. *yawn* You know what? Even if she really is racist, which she isn’t, I really just don’t care anymore.

  27. She must have known the racist left would be all over this comment. 🙂
    Wonder what her motive was?

    She sure herds these sheep masterfully….lol…..

    VIVA SARAH!!!!!!!

  28. the barry supporters could care less 4 Americans are dead by the hands of this admin, they could care less that 200 plus 2 of our border agents are dead because of this admin’s Fast and Furious.

  29. Since one can say anything at all about a Black Conservative and not here a peep from the MSM, we know that this is not about racism, just same-old, same-old Leftist race-baiting.

  30. Anyone who doesn’t roll over and/or dares to utter a word about their savior (criminal, liar, incompetent – pick any 3) is “racist”. I’m sick to death of it and of this administration.

    Too bad congress is so busy campaigning they don’t seem to have time to start impeachment proceedings.

    1. One does wonder when Congress will actually start acting like elected officials who are sworn to uphold and defend the …..what was the document called….

  31. Who cares what the left says. Everything we say and do is racist (to them) and they have run themselves dry of any credibility.

  32. Palin’s critics are racist.

    In order to overcome racism, all races must be treated equally. If the target of Palin’s criticism had been White, there would be no accusation of racism. It is therefore racist to refuse to allow such a criticism when the target is Half-White.

  33. I am a big admirer of Gov. Palin. She’s as conservative as can be but she doesn’t judge others like much of the far right does. [She seems more Libertarian to me.]

    Here is a quote from an excellent article about Gov. Palin from 2010:

    “Every time Palin closes her eyes and holds out her sword, a hundred liberals race up to impale themselves upon it.”

    Here’s a link to the article-it’s great. God bless you Gov. Palin. For being smart, funny, courageous, strong, honest and most of all emulating the virtues of a true Christian that every single conservative could learn from.

    The Left Breaks Upon the Rock of Palin

  34. Sheeet, don’t you no dat shuck an jive is an exclusive fraze reserved the dose of us practicing ebonix. And to use dat saying as a attack on da man, wheel not put up wit it.

  35. Remember when the left went nuts trying to use this paragraph as proof that she’s an idiot:

    My fellow Americans in all 57 states, the time has changed for come. With our country founded more than 20 centuries ago, we have much to celebrate – from the FBI’s 100 days to the reforms that bring greater inefficiencies to our health care system. We know that countries like Europe are willing to stand with us in our fight to halt the rise of privacy, and Israel is a strong friend of Israel’s. And let’s face it, everybody knows that it makes no sense that you send a kid to the emergency room for a treatable illness like asthma and they end up taking up a hospital bed. It costs, when, if you, they just gave, you gave them treatment early, and they got some treatment, and ah, a breathalyzer, or an inhalator. I mean, not a breathalyzer, ah, I don’t know what the term is in Austrian for that…

    Here’s the whole FB post:

  36. You mean the LSM might actually cover the news re the emails now? Sarah sure knows how to lead the media around by the nose…
    What is that expression, “You know you are over the target when you start taking flak”

    1. She dangled the racism bait, and they walked right into it, like good little sheeple. Awesome.

  37. The PC police are going to get me for this one.

    I’m so sick of conservatives being called racist for simply disagreeing with Obama that I don’t ever want to see a minority that is a liberal elected president ever again. I don’t have a racist bone in my body but I’m tired as hell of being accused of being a racist.

    On the other side of the same coin, nothing would make me happier than to see a minority that is a conservative elected president. However, given the media’s penchant for destroying minority conservatives seeking higher office or positions of power (e.g. Clarence Thomas or Herman Cain), I’m not holding my breath waiting.

    1. Alright buddy. It’s a good thing you saw the blue light and pulled over. I’ll need to see your democrat voter registration card please, otherwise you’re already guilty of racism. Ah, I see you’re registered as a Republican. Step out of the vehicle and put your hands behind your back. Don’t worry about your car, it’ll be stripped down to the frame before you can say, yassuh massuh!

      The term ‘racist’ has been neutered. The national race card is torn, tattered, and dog-eared and feels like a square of bathroom tissue, which is only good for one thing.

  38. And once again they prove that they are Pavlov’s dogs. They are so easy to play and Palin is the master. She brings attention to her post, and besides the usual suspects who scream racism at everything, tons of others will read it and she’ll get her point across. They’ll see the truth in what she’s writing and they’ll know the questions that need to be answered.

  39. The more they whine and opine the more play it gets 🙂

    Dingbats and doofuses. Rooters of failure and decline. Applauders of weakness. Purveyors of poppycock.

    I wonder how many words I’ve used are from the slavery era too. Guess what, before the mid to later 1800’s, every era was the slavery era. In Roman times as many as 80% of Rome’s inhabitants were slaves. These whiners and racebaiters are also slaves, to stupidity, immaturity and the democrat party. They are also keepers of the last remaining plantation in this country.

    Go ahead and come unglued fools. Is anything else holding you together? I’ve placed an emergency call to Elmer, who’ll be happy to supply each of you a fresh glue-change. This time place your heads on your shoulders rather than up your own asses. It’ll help keep you regular. Twits.

  40. RACISM? If we were a racist nation, Barrack Obama would have never been elected. Blacks in America do not have the numbers without votes from whites and Hispanics.
    When I hear this logic, I’m far from amused. This is a classic “Are you smarter than a 5th grader” example of how gullible some people (Democrats/Liberals) are.
    I think there are as many women on TRS as men. For example, someone was attacking ABiC one day and said “hey buddy…” I knew she was a woman because of an earlier reference to her husband.
    The Democrats don’t give women credit for what is between their ears (brains) and keep talking about their “womb” as if that’s all women think about. To me, that’s flat out insulting. Ladies don’t forget to remind any liberal co-workers, relatives and/or friends of this fact.

  41. Of course they are blaming Palin for being a racist. It takes the heat off of answering about the emails and attack. What else can they do, tell the truth? That’s not going to happen.

    1. The simple fact is that in order to talk about the shuck and jive they might actually have to highlight the facts re the emails which the LSM has been ignoring. Look, Sarah Palin knows exactly how to pull their chains and now has gotten the attention on the emails… even if she takes some flak for it.
      What is that expression, “You know you are over the target when you start taking flak”

  42. This administration deserted our consulate in Benghazi to terrorists. Four people died horrible deaths while observed by drones Their bodies were abused.
    And we’re supposed to worry about
    Gov. Palin saying Shuck and Jive, just like Jay Carney? ( thanks for the link)
    Yes this is big news. Ignore the cover up! / sarc. Morons!

  43. Sarah nails Obama and has the lib heads spinning it into racism.

    That’s a twofer for Sarah.

    Hopefully, some dim libs will wake up and do their own investigations!?

    1. If Sarah just pointed towards o’bummer and said: there is the president the calls racist would be because she singled out a black guy:-)

  44. These fools don’t understand that she “sets em up and they fall for it” every time. This morning, Carney used the same term-

    They got upset the first time she used “all wee wee’d up” forgetting that Obama had used that term first.

    They got upset with her when she talked about Obama’s “big stick”, forgetting that Biden told a crowd that “Obama’s got a big stick”.

    She knows how easy it is to make fools out of her detractors. She plays them for the fools she knows they are. They never learn.

    1. It just makes me smile. It also contributes to their insanity, you know, that thing where they keep doing the same thing and expecting a different result. LOL

    2. It got started in ‘Lipstick’ and went on from there, RO2012. Every time she out wits them they miss it. Denseness on their part as they scramble to put her down. They fear Sarah!

  45. I love the knee jerk reaction from the Left regarding any “isms.” Its kind of hard to take these people seriously when “isms” are condoned and promoted when speaking of conservative women and minorities.

  46. It’s all they have left. Sorry libs, many of us just don’t even notice skin color. What I notice is that he’s a dick and his policies are disastrous. I highly doubt Mrs. Palin looked up the word origin of that to make sure it was a subtle insult. Y’all are pathetic.

        1. Just pick one favourite? That’s very prejudiced to the hermaphrodite community… does your prejudice never end?!


    1. Why do you highly doubt that Palin would not look up the word “schtick”.
      Do you think she can’t use the free internet dictionary?
      Or are you just a sexist?

    1. You think it’s bad now. Wait until Romney wins the election. We will hear nothing but non stop whining for the next 4 years.

      1. Speaking of whining, if anyone will have the right to whine, it will be President Romney! He could say, “it’s Obama’s fault, it’s all because of Obama” – but somehow we know he won’t, don’t we?

        1. I would very much like to see an address to the nation from Pres Romney announcing that he is pardoning former Pres Obama for the crime of treason. That would be right after he has nullified or repealed every single piece of legislation that the traitor put in place.

      2. I can only hear it if I am listening to it. After this election I will never watch any of the LSM news broadcasts again. I say after because I absolutely intend to watch their meltdowns on Nov 6, with a glass of champagne and a smile.

  47. She also used the word “shtick”, a yiddish word. I guess that makes her an anti-semite too. What a bunch of hog wash.

    1. When you are proven to be an incompetent liar with an IQ comparable to a box of rocks and your only response is to call someone racist, it just reinforces you are a nothing but a liberal babbling fool trying to be relevant. White liberals are the most worthless lifeforms on the planet. That’s not racist, that a fact.
