The Sarah Palin Channel is running out of things to say. The former governor of Alaska published less than six full minutes of content this week, and her longest video (clocking in at 2:17) focused on a four-year-old tale about the muzzling of a conservative student newspaper at the University of Minnesota, blah blah blah, it is just the most boring story about "free speech" you have ever heard.


Palin did, however, manage to create not one but TWO fear-mongering videos about the gathering threat posed by The Mooslims. In one of those videos — focused on the sociopathic bromance between Boko Haram and ISIS— Governor Quitterface starts the bald-faced lying early.

Well, President Obama's war against ISIS, it's going so well that ISIS is expanding.

ISIS is, by almost any measure, losing ground. The group failed to take the city of Kobani, and they failed in large part because President Mom Jeans bombed the living shit out of them. ISIS has been driven out of Tikrit, with a few remaining defenders cut off and encircled near the Tigris River. The group's revenue streams have been decimated, and their fighting formations are beginning to experience desertion among the rank-and-file.

"Damn the factual torpedoes!" Palin screamed into the arctic wind. "Full snow-machine ahead!"

The Nigerian terror group called Boko Haram has now repeatedly pledged its allegiance to ISIS.

Oh, cool! Yr Wonket was not aware that it was possible to suddenly extend one's sovereignty to faraway realms just because some of the people there pledge allegiance to you. Sarah Palin and Vladimir Putin seem to have more in common than a narrow maritime border.

At one stroke ISIS has added a new center of operations, thousands of new fighters, and thousands of square miles to its jihadist empire.

This is why Palin's never coming back to politics. Her preceding sentences were carefully constructed half-truths, the kinds of non-lies that a good communications team can spin. But the idea that ISIS has gained "a new center of operations" is laughable to members of the reality-based community who recognize that ISIS is unlikely to send manpower or materiel to West Africa when the group is already facing so many foes so much closer to home.

And the rubes? The rubes continue to eat this shit up! Here are some of the comments on Palin's video about Boko Haram, which, again, is completely full of stupidity and lies.

Yr Wonket is legitimately concerned that commenter "patriot1952" is having a stroke. We have sent him a private message asking him if he smells burnt toast.

These people and their quotation marks...

And don't forget the call to action. Close the deal, Gil, close the deal!

The Sarah Palin Channel commenter "qtdb7" is Yr Wonket's favorite. Disqus says that "qtdb7" has published nearly 1,900 comments, and as far as Yr Wonket can tell, they're all on the Sarah Palin Channel. Yet we are not sure that "qtdb7" is a plant! We cannot discount the possibility that "qtdb7" is just an older gentleman who happens to be in love with Sarah Palin.

These people become like your family when you spend enough time with them. Oh, and here's the video.

A guest post by "Knitsy McPurlson," which we suspect is not a real name.

Yr Wonkette is not the only website run by brilliant peoples unafraid to poke people with sharp, pointy sticks. Ravelry.com – a website for knitters, crocheters, and other folks interested in textiles and fiber arts – is poking people with knitting needles, which are very sharp indeed.

This past weekend, Ravelry.com's founders showed the world how easy it is to de-platform white nationalists and racists when they banned all "support of Donald Trump and his administration" from their website, concluding they "cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy." Seems like people smart enough to decode a knitting pattern are also smart enough to decode Trump's not-so-hidden message of racism and white nationalism.

One day, God willing, my grandchildren will click open their history textbooks and read about the Central American migrant internment camps. They'll learn about sick kids, locked in cages, kept hungry and dirty and cold for weeks on end, and they'll be horrified.

"Bubbie," they'll say, "how could this happen in America? How could there be toddlers sleeping on the ground without blankets, without soap or toothbrushes to clean themselves?"

"I don't know. I wish I had done more. I'm ashamed," I'll say. We will all have to answer for this atrocity. But some of us will have to answer more than others. Not just the archvillains like Stephen Miller and John Kelly, but the people who kept right on doing their jobs, even as those jobs morphed into defending concentration camps.
