Pajamas Media PalinTracker: Rebukes Anti-Semitism and Government Fixes, Memoir Hits #1

A round-up of activity in the Sarah Palin camp. (An ongoing PJM series)

At Facebook, Palin posts her Best Wishes for the Jewish High Holidays, with solemn best wishes for Yom Kippur — the Day of Atonement — which reminds us of our need for forgiveness. She adds a current spin:

A speech was given at the United Nations General Assembly yesterday that was full of hateful anti-Semitic rhetoric. It was a shameful display before a body whose very charter is premised on the need for co-operation and harmony in pursuit of peaceful co-existence between nations. Such talk was especially abhorrent coming as it did during the Jewish High Holidays. The world community must speak with one voice in declaring anti-Semitism and all forms of intolerance and racism utterly unacceptable. There is no place in the community of peace-loving nations for those who traffic in hate or deny the terrible atrocity of the Nazi Holocaust.
In this holy season, we join the Jewish people in the struggle to promote justice, harmony, and peace. May God bless them.

Morning Companion lifts a quote from Palin’s 9/23 Hong Kong speech to contrast two radically divergent worldviews:

Sarah Palin vs. Hugo Chavez
“We don’t believe that human nature is perfectible; we’re suspicious of government efforts to fix problems because often what it’s trying to fix is human nature, and that is impossible. It is what it is. But that doesn’t mean that we’re resigned to any negative destiny. Not at all. I believe in striving for the ideal, but in realistic confines of human nature. …
The opposite of a common-sense conservative is a liberalism that holds that there is no human problem that government can’t fix if only the right people are put in charge. Unfortunately, history and common sense are not on its side. We don’t trust utopian promises; we deal with human nature as it is.”
– Sarah Palin
“Those who want to go directly to hell, they can follow capitalism. And those of us who want to build heaven on earth, we will follow socialism.”
– Hugo Chavez
