Why Sarah Palin’s Jewelry At The CPAC Rally Has Twitter Seeing Red – The List

The Star of David, also known as a Magen David, has been a symbol of Judaism for centuries, and typically is worn by Jews as a sign of their faith. However, in recent years, evangelical Christians have also been wearing Stars of David, explains The Conversation. They tend to support Israel because they believe the Jewish state is part of the divine plan to bring about the Second Coming of Jesus.

Sarah Palin's necklace infuriated many Jewish Twitter users who resented her appropriation of another religion, not to mention her wearing it at this particular event. CPAC is noted for its popularity among so-called Christian Nationalists, who want to declare America a Christian nation and establish its laws accordingly (via Slate).

The outrage was further fueled by the fact that one of the featured speakers at CPAC was Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbn, who has consistently used anti-Semitic imagery in his political advertising (per Politico) and who recently spoke out against "race mixing" (via The Guardian).A Twitter userexclaimed, "Oh my God Sarah Palin is wearing a Star of David while she speaks at a White Nationalist Event. Obran is pro-Hitler. Is she just ignorant or mean?"

Another commenter was far more blunt: "As a Jew, I want Sarah Palin to take off the Star of David she is wearing," they said. "It makes me sick, and if I could, I would rip it from her neck."
