Yet Another Manufactured Liberal Outrage About Palin

The lady sure drives the left nuts. But, then, the pretty much live in a peanut farm. The latest insanity from the insaneocrats

The name on her black memorial bracelet — one, like the gold star, a demonstration of a friend or associate who was killed in action — is that of her oldest son, Track. Track served honorably in Iraq, and both he and his parents should be thanked for his selfless service to his country. He is also alive.

Commemorating Track’s service by wearing a a black memorial bracelet which is reserved for those dead or even a red bracelet for those missing in action, demonstrates a horrifying contempt for those who gave their last full measure of devotion or an almost unbelievable ignorance of the importance of symbols in American history.

Unfortunately, given Palin’s reputation and frequent public statements, I assume it is the latter.

William A. Jacobson points to the many, many, many left-o-sphere folks losing their minds. Unfortunately for those on the left (who will surely, with their pink color glasses on, ignore the reality), William also finds something interesting about said bracelet, namely that it is real, and not only sold by reputable company (see the photo at William’s site), but…..

Back in 2004, we had heard that both Sarah Palin’s son and now Vice President Joseph Biden’s son were heading off on deployements, so we made them both a set of Deployed HeroBracelets with their son’s names on the bracelets. Our way for thanking them both for having son’s in the military. We actually got a very nice call from Senator Biden’s office, thanking us for the HeroBracelets. And now we’re quite proud to see Sarah Palin wearing her HeroBracelet.

Oops! Will the same insaneocrats call out Joe Biden? Particularly since, if you look closely, it is not, in fact, black, but the dark bronze “Deployed Hero Bracelet.” Crooks and Liars mentions this comment left in the original story, yet, only says that there should have been more fact checking, but, no “my bad!”

About Ms. Palin’s HeroBracelet.

We sent her those bracelets during the last election. When we learned that her son, Track and Senator Biden’s son were both being deployed overseas, we sent them both Deployed HeroBracelets with their son’s names.

We’ve been providing Deployed HeroBracelets since 2004 for families to wear while their loved ones were serving. They can be made from sterling, copper, leather or bronze colored anodized aluminum (black is reserved for KIA).[..]

So she isn’t out of line for wearing the Deployed HeroBracelet. There are ten’s of thousands of families around the country wearing them right now. On the HeroBracelets web site, we’ve got hundreds of letters from families, many vowing to not take the bracelet off till their loved one comes home.
