“Don’t retreat—reload”

Sarah Palin (the former governor of Alaska and Republican party candidate for vice president in 2008) tweeted on March 23, 2010: “Commonsense Conservatives & lovers of America: ‘Don’t Retreat, Instead - RELOAD!’” It is unclear if Palin used the “retreat/reload” saying in 2008 or 2009, but it was popularized in 2010. “Don’t retreat—reload” has been popular with tea party Constitutionalists who support Second Amendment gun ownership rights.

A similarly worded saying has been cited in print since at least January 2005: “I don’t retreat. I reload.” Another similarly worded saying from at least February 2007 is: “Never Retreat...Just Reload.”


Wikipedia: Sarah Palin
Sarah Louise Palin (pronounced /ˈpeɪlɨn/; née Heath; born February 11, 1964) is an American politician, author, speaker, and political news commentator who was the youngest person and the first woman elected Governor of Alaska. She served as governor from 2006 until she resigned in 2009. Chosen by Republican Party presidential candidate John McCain in August 2008 to be his running mate in that year’s presidential election, she was the first Alaskan on the national ticket of a major party, as well as the first female vice-presidential nominee of the Republican Party.

Sarah Palin wants to “get America back on track” and “reload and not retreat,” but literally no one knows what that means.

Ms. Slaughter referred, among other things, to a Twitter message in which Sarah Palin, the 2008 Republican vice-presidential nominee, urged her followers, “Don’t Retreat, Instead - RELOAD!”
