Over the weekend, former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin told media outlets that they should refer to Black Lives Matter groups as “thugs” instead of calling them “protesters” or “people.”

In an interview with Breitbart News Sunday, Palin said, “They’re not protesters. You know, these are thugs, they’re rioters.”

“And yeah, I’m calling out the media, saying quit claiming that these rioters are people,” Palin continued. “They’re stomping on a flag — figuratively and literally — shouting ‘death to cops’, celebrating violence.”

Palin claims that black activists “are getting away with it because there aren’t enough of them gutsy enough to call out what it actually is — and it’s sick.”

“And I think the media is perpetuating a message that really evil people are thriving on right now,” Palin added, “as they try to warp malleable minds that would believe that one race matters more than another.”

“You know, it’s the antithesis of Martin Luther King Jr.’s message. It’s the antithesis of our Constitution, of the Bill of Rights, our charters of liberty that says all men are created equal.”
