Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin had some choice words for terrorists that raised a few eyebrows over the weekend.
“If I were in charge, [our enemies] would know that waterboarding is how we baptize terrorists,” she told the National Rifle Association’s “Stand and Fight Rally” crowd on Saturday evening.
“Come on!” Palin exclaimed. “Enemies, who would utterly annihilate America, they who’d obviously have information on plots, to carry out Jihad. Oh, but you can’t offend them, can’t make them feel uncomfortable, not even a smidgen.”
Her remarks created a sensation over social media but she doubled down when questioned by NBC reporter Kasie Hunt.
“Would I make it again? Why wouldn’t I, yeah, absolutely,” she told Hunt. “Terrorists who want to annihilate Americans, innocent Americans, our children — whatever it takes to stop them. If I were in charge, I’d be stoppin’ em.”
