Of Course Sarah Palin Supports Donald Trump's Muslim Ban

Read her lengthy post supporting the GOP candidate's Islamaphobic plan

Sadie Gennis

Sarah Palin voiced her support of Donald Trump's call to ban all Muslims from entering the U.S. in a lengthy Facebook post Wednesday.

"Herd mentality running rampant with hypocritical and/or naive pundits trying to crush Donald Trump because he's committed to clobbering the bad guys, and putting the good guys first," Palin began. "Trump's temporary ban proposal is in the context of doing all we can to force the Feds to acknowledge their lack of strategy to deal with terrorism."

The White House wants Trump disqualified for Muslim banning comments

As evidence of need for the ban, which Trump proposed on Monday, the Republican presidential candidate pointed to a controversial online poll that claims 25 percent of Muslims living in the United States believe violence against Americans "is justified as part of the global jihad."

Trump immediately came under fire for the Islamaphobic remarks, but Palin thinks Trump is doing what's necessary. "I said it back in 2009 and got beat up by the Left but understood by the commonsense Right, and I'll say it again: if it saves innocent lives, 'profile away!'" she wrote.
