WASILLA, Ak. – Former Alaska governor and frequent Fox News contributor Sarah Palin said her Wasilla estate was overrun by a contingent of Black Lives Matter protesters over the weekend. In a rambling Facebook post, Palin revealed that she and her husband Todd had just sat down to enjoy a hearty Sunday morning breakfast when a “horde of masked hooligans” came pouring out of the woods and onto their property.
Fearing for their lives, Mr. and Mrs. Palin fled to the basement where they sealed themselves inside a state-of-the-art panic room – which the former vice presidential nominee installed immediately following President Obama’s 2009 nomination – before contacting authorities. Palin described a moment of intense terror as she and Todd huddled together inside the small blast-resistant room, meanwhile rampant “hooting and hollering” could be heard from outside.
By the time Wasilla police had arrived at the Palin residence, the gang had vanished, leaving a chaotic scene of destruction in their wake. A spokesperson for the Wasilla police department told the Mat-Su Valley Frontiersman that vandals had peppered the Palin compound with upwards of fifty dozen eggs. “This was a well-coordinated attack,” a source close to the Palin family told Fox News. “What we know so far is that these individuals were well-trained and well-equipped. This was by no means amateur hour.”
Palin told authorities she initially believed the mob had been sent to silence her. “They were here to suppress the voice of reason,” she later charged on Facebook. “These thugs were paid by the Obama administration to divide our nation.” Palin went on to compare her experience to the 2012 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, where four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, lost their lives.
As of Monday evening, Wasilla authorities were still investigating a number of leads including a tip from the owner of a local grocery store who said he’d sold a group of local kids approximately two hundred dollars worth of eggs less than an hour before the attack took place. “This is the most credible information we have so far,” Wasilla’s interim police chief Larry Dickerson said.
Despite Chief Dickerson’s confidence that the matter would soon be resolved, Palin called the grocery store owner’s account a coincidence. “The fact that they’re using a group of school children as scapegoats – it just goes to show you how far this administration is willing to go to cover for their friends in the Black Lives Matter movement,” Palin told Fox News’ Shepard Smith, adding, “It’s sickening.”
