As soon as the story broke in Arizona, before the corpses of the victims were identified, the mentally unstable left blamed it on Sarah Palin, talk radio, and the Tea Party. Of course, it was all a big lie designed to give Democrats leverage to attack Republicans and give Obama his “Oklahoma City” moment. After the Oklahoma City bombing, Bill Clinton condemned right-wing talk radio and other enemies of his, and now Obama has the opportunity to do the same. Tonight, Obama addresses the Nation. Will he, like Clinton, use a senseless tragedy for political gain?
But that’s not what this post is about. It’s about how Palin, the supposed evil-doer, is just as threatened by wackos as Congresswoman Giffords and the other politicians who had their offices vandalized during the ObamaCare debate.
According to The Daily Caller, lots of people on twitter have called for Palin to be shot. Real mature, people. That’s definitely the way to respond to a violent act: call for more to occur. Here’s what The DC found:
A video on YouTube showcases dozens of tweets, sent in the aftermath of Saturday’s Arizona massacre, that call for the death of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.
Some of the Tweeters wish Palin would die of cancer, while others advocate for her assassination.
“My hatred for Sarah Palin continues to grow. I think this woman should be assassinated,” said one person. “Sarah Palin should be shot for her encouragement of fanaticism against Democrats,” says another.
Numerous left-wing commentators have accused Palin of inspiring the attack on Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords that left 6 dead. The Daily Caller’s Jim Treacher reported that liberal blogger Matthew Yglesias, Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas, actress Jane Fonda, film critic Roger Ebert, and filmmaker Michael Moore all took to Twitter within hours of the attack to accuse Palin of being in some way responsible.
Here’s the video:
The moral of this story isn’t that the left is worse than the right, or that the right isn’t as bad as the left, or anything like that. This kind of stuff happens on both sides. GROW UP AND DEAL WITH IT. The RHETORIC HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH WHAT HAPPENED IN TUSCON.
