Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin says the Black Lives Matter movement is a "farce" that consists of "thugs" legitimized by politicians and pundits.

In a fiery Facebook post, Palin said of the Black Lives Matter protest against police violence in Dallas which ended in tragedy when a lone sniper executed five cops:

"Shame on our culture's influencers who would stir contention and division that could lead to evil such as that in Dallas.

"Shame on politicians and pundits giving credence to thugs rioting against police officers and the rule of law in the name of 'peaceful protests.' It is a farce. #BlackLivesMatter is a farce."

Palin, who was Sen. John McCain's vice-presidential running mate in 2008, also took aim at the media.

"Quit claiming the rioters are 'peaceful' as they stomp on our flag, shout 'death to cops!' and celebrate violence. It is sick. You perpetuate a perverted message evil men thrive on to intimidate and warp malleable minds that would believe one race matters more than another," she said.

"Blood is on your complicit hands when you naively or purposefully refuse to tell of this movement's truth."

Turning to the demonstrators, Palin continued, "Black Lives Matter? Yes — more than BLM 'protestors' can grasp, as evidenced by their self-destructive provocateurism. Doesn't it go without saying that Native lives matter, too? And Asian; and Eskimo; and Hispanic; and Indian . . .

"And every other race comprised of people who see clearly the agenda at play to weaken America through disunity. Get fed up and stand up if you're sick of being called racist when proclaiming EVERY LIFE MATTERS, black as much as white and every skin tone in between.

"Every innocent life — at every stage of life — on the side of good over evil, matters. Why let the damaging false narrative prevail if you know it is a lie?! Speak up! Join me in refusing to go willingly with society trying to crown deceptive political correctness the victor."

Palin said the shooting deaths of two African-American civilians by cops, which prompted the ill-fated Dallas protest, "is mind-boggling. It's nauseating."

"My heart is with victims' families as I sympathize with anyone defenseless in these situations. More so, I empathize if we find out any cop involved was in the wrong, for I abhor bad cops," she said.

But Palin said she sides with police.

"To side with our public servants trying to keep law and order amidst political agendas that clearly oppose that virtue is how the good guys win again. It's the only way to ensure our best days will be ahead of us," she said.
