In Going Rogue Sarah says:
"In that first year, I was alerted to threats against Willow by students at her Juneau school, one particularly disturbing. Someone posted a note on an Internet site threatening to gang-rape her at school. I never felt safe for her after that. Later, the same thing happened to Bristol."
The Juneau Empire reports that neither the School Superintendant, nor the Chief of Police not the State Troopers who provided security for the Palins had any record of such a threat.
Never heard of it, until Sarah wrote about it in her 'book' !!! How can this be?
IF these 'threats' to Willow are in fact true, and no report was made about them, what does that say about Sarah? She did nothing official about it? She just 'handled' it somehow? Despicable threat, dubious response on Sarah's part!
IF they aren't true ... and Sarah made it up or exagerated something into a 'gang rape threat' then ... what does that say about Sarah??
IF Sarah made it up (as Politifact's winner of the Lie of the Year, that is definitely a possibility) then it's even MORE despicable. Not only did she use her daughter to elicit 'sympathy' in a false story, but she ALSO planted a seed of fear into the hearts of parents and teenaged girls by implying that there are people there who would contemplate such a thing!
You know what we call people who try to achieve their goals by striking fear/terror into people's lives, don't you?? Sarah??? Do you know what those people are called??
Sarah never expected the fact checking did she? She just expected the check!
Fact checking, is a concept that seems alien to Sarah; in her world, if she 'says it' it's fact! Consequences of lies, be damned, Sarah never thinks of the consequences of her words.
So, we have yet another Sarah 'story' doesn't hold up under fact-checking! Sarah claims there were 'threats' made about Willow .... but she didn't report them?
What does this say, once again about Sarah??
1- she didn't report threats against her own daughter; why? to protect her privacy?
2- she didn't mind including it in her book; why? if it happened long ago, why bring it up again?
3- she truly believes that whatever she says will be taken as FACT; obviously, she knows her fan-base is too stupid to fact check!
4- nothing is more horrific than gang-rape threats against a young girl, to be sure. What a great story then, for Sarah to use, to illustrate to her Palinbots how horrible people are to her and her children!
5- as we know, Sarah never misses a chance to use her children to elicit sympathy, or cry 'Attack!' or shield her from questions.
If this had really happened, it would have caused an uproar at the time. There would be records somewhere of Sarah's concern, or Willow's fear ... If Sarah felt there was a threat to her daughter(s) seems to me she would have kept her childrens' Media/Public appearances exposure to a minimum during the 2008 campaign AND during the book tour!
If this had really happened, the woman who went after her brother-in-law would surely have been even MORE aggressive against someone making such threats about her daughters!
If it's true, the authorities should be aware, not only to protect Willow, but to protect ALL THE YOUNG GIRLS AT THAT SCHOOL.
