Sarah Palin on US Citizens Who Leave to Join Terrorist Groups

by Veronica Coffin on March 30, 2015



Sarah Palin has a pretty specific idea in mind of what she would like to see happen to any Americans that decide to join a terrorist organization like ISIS.

Palin posted the above video and following note to her Facebook page:

As crazy as it sounds, a U.S. citizen who leaves this country to join ISIS, al Qaeda, or any other terrorist organization does not immediately lose his or her citizenship. That needs to change!

In her post, the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee suggests that traitors should be stripped of their U.S. citizenship immediately.

Palin’s comments come just one month after federal authorities arrested three New Yorkers on charges of conspiring to join the Islamic State in Syria:

“The message is clear: No place is safe from jihad,” she says. “The threat of radical Islam is real. It’s growing, and ignoring it won’t make it go away. How many more wake-up calls do we need?”

The former Alaska governor made note of this – and other recent terrorist attacks worldwide like January’s Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris – as justification for her proposal.
