The Gladiator: Sarah Palin, We Need You Back in the Arena
By Lloyd Marcus
Hello, calling Sarah Palin! Has anyone seen her? Where is she? Has Sarah Palin left the building? Is the Palin magic gone forever? No. The Palin charisma and mass appeal are still alive and well.
Certain people are born gifted with “It” — something that compels you to watch them. Sarah Palin is one such individual. Though politically tarred, feathered, and run out of town on a rail by the left and a few spineless Republicans, I pray for the day when my favorite gladiator Sarah Palin returns to the arena.
Unquestionably, the vitriolic attacks on Palin and her family, the betrayals by Republicans and associates left Palin severely wounded. Who among us could endure and survive the full weight of the MSM launched to destroy you? It is quite understandable and reasonable for Palin to say, Forget this. Todd and I are goin’ fishin’.
But, the Bible says, to whom much is given, much is required. While Palin has not reported seeing a burning bush, I believe that she has been called for such a time as this. I pray she will feel led to return to Rome (Washington, D.C.) to fight in the arena. At the moment, there is no one on the national stage who inspires the masses to follow and act on their convictions like Palin.
Please allow me to share my personal testimony of the “Palin Effect.” With Sarah Palin as the keynote speaker, Tea Party Express launched one of its tours in Searchlight, NV, a small Dust Bowl town. Twenty-five thousand people showed up — RVs parked everywhere, because many had arrived days early to stake out their spot.
From inside our Tea Party Express tour bus, as we approached the site, I saw seniors parked a mile away, making their way to the event using walkers. It gave me goosebumps. Obviously, this woman, Sarah Palin, represented the America they loved and feared was slipping away.
I asked friends at dinner, “How did Ronald Reagan win in a landslide touting Conservatism? Jerry Falwell and his Moral Majority was said to have figured in the mix. Americans, for the most part, are a moral and just people. I believe that Reagan touting values which spoke to the hearts and minds of decent people is what inspired Americans to be all they could be.”
I was a 20-something black kid from the East Baltimore projects back then. I knew nothing about politics. All I knew was that every time I heard President Reagan speak, I felt good about my country and myself. Reagan made me feel I could achieve and contribute to this wonderful country, in which I was blessed to be born, called America.
Where are the voices inspiring folks to love and contribute to the greatness of their country? I know, I know. Such talk sounds corny and naïve today. In Obama’s America, signing up for government assistance and approving of government confiscating the earnings of high achievers for redistribution is the new definition of compassion and patriotism.
Even being proud of our country is considered a bad thing under Obama. When outside the U.S., Obama continuously apologizes for who we are — furthering the narrative that the world has too little because we have too much. Amazingly, Reagan saw this mindset coming and warned us.
We need a hero, folks — someone willing to stand up for America, boldly waving our flag and touting the virtues of hard work, self-reliance, family, God, and country. I believe that Sarah Palin can pull it off.
Reading my own words sound a bit corny even to me. Folks, have we become so cynical, so tainted that asking Americans to strive for goodness and righteousness rather than becoming permanent government welfare recipients is an outdated, impossible dream of the past?
Sarah Palin, please come back. Run for office. We long to cheer you on as our gladiator in the arena.
While national media attention has waned since she opted not to run for president in 2012, Palin has remained a conservative favorite, garnering huge applause at CPAC earlier this year for her speech and helping to boost four out of her five endorsed Senate candidates to primary wins last year. She is set to re-join Fox News as a contributor, after a few months absence. She continues to have a dominant social-media presence on Twitter and Facebook. Today she’s slated to speak at the Faith and Freedom Coalition Road to Majority Conference — where, if the past is any indication, she’ll earn thunderous applause.
“She flourishes when she is within her element and among the people who believe in her message and want to hear red meat with a soft touch,” says GOP pollster Kellyanne Conway.
“Her support, if anything, has grown,” says Amy Kremer, president of the Tea Party Express. “She’s so down to earth and does what she feels and what she thinks and she doesn’t hold back. She’s not intimidated by the Left or by the establishment.”
In other words, she’s still adored by some conservatives — even if she doesn’t inspire the same amount of coverage from the “lamestream media” that she used to. “She is a rock star to the conservative movement,” Kremer adds. “Of course we have upcoming and rising stars whose profile is growing, such as Rand Paul and Ted Cruz, but there is no one that excites the base like Sarah Palin.”
Cruz, the freshman senator who has generated plenty of attention as a tea-party favorite, warmly praises Palin. “Governor Palin is a friend and a true patriot,” Cruz e-mails. “I have always admired her passion to defend the Constitution and her courage to speak truth to power.” Nor has he forgotten how her endorsement gave him a boost at a crucial time during the primary: “I will forever be thankful for her tremendous support in my campaign.”
“The time she has spent traveling the nation to support conservative candidates and promote conservative causes reflects her deep love for our country and a genuine desire to see the principles of our Founding Fathers restored,” Cruz adds. “I’m proud to stand with Sarah Palin, alongside millions of Americans who are grateful for her fearless voice for liberty.”
