Martin Bashir suggested Palin should experience how slaves were treated.
This is the kind of horrible treatment that slaves were subject to. They were whipped, had salt thrown in their wounds, and were forced to allow another slave to defecate in their mouth. This is what Sarah Palin thinks is comparable to the debt. But Bashir wasn’t through with Palin. He suggested she learn about the true horrors of slavery by experiencing it for herself.
When Mrs. Palin invokes slavery, she doesn’t just prove her rank ignorance. She confirms if anyone truly qualified for a dose of discipline from Thomas Thistlewood, she would be the outstanding candidate.
