I think the point people are missing is that WE know Sarah Palin did not pull the trigger. We meaning, liberals. We know she didn’t actually kill these innocent people in Tucson. WHY we are so angry with her, and lashing out at her, is because Republicans/Conservatives have been spewing all this hate rhetoric since McCain rolled her out in 2008. THAT IS A FACT. As I remember, this started when Palin kept accusing President Obama of ‘palling around with terrorists.’ That was intentionally used to play on the fears of the Xenophobes at the McCain/Palin rallies. FACT. Sarah Palin going to certain cities claiming she was in the ‘real America.’ Or that particular city is the only ‘pro America’ city. That incites anger. She knows that. You’re damn right she knows that. She doesn’t care. This hate rhetoric DID start during the campaign in 2008. And it’s no coincidence that it started AFTER Palin was shoved down American’s throats.
Glenn Beck: I haven’t figured this clown out yet. I don’t know if he’s doing schtick, or if he’s for real. Just listening to clips of his show on YouTube has aged me 10 years in 3 minutes. If you’re a dumb person, like most Fox News viewers, then you have no choice but to believe his bullshit. He is telling his moronic viewers that you better do something, before something is done to you. Watch:
This is dangerous talk. when the ‘crazy’ people hear this, this is what gives them the validation to actually go out and assassinate a Congress-woman. So for the media to say it’s a far leap to blame Palin, too early to jump to conclusions; NO IT IS NOT. When a popular, polarizing, public figure posts a map on her website, using crosshairs to target actual human beings, AND the woman who was shot in the head IS ON THAT MAP … why WOULDN’T you draw that conclusion?? That is common sense. When that same popular, polarizing, public figure uses the phrase, “Don’t Retreat, RELOAD” every chance she gets, it is absolutely NOT a stretch to draw the conclusion that she enticed this murderer into committing an act of violence. Everything she says and does has been VIOLENT hyperbole. Sorry but that happens to be a FACT.
Bottom Line: Sarah Palin & Glenn Beck have been speaking this violent, hateful, rhetoric for a long time now. And basked in its ‘glory.’ Claiming to ‘love’ their country and are afraid of what it’s becoming. ‘Take Our Country Back.’ What do you suppose they mean by that? Palin & Beck wanted Americans to join them in a Revolution against this administration. They both have been lying and misinforming and exaggerating every step of the way, and NOT being held accountable for anything they have said or done. Well NOW they should be held accountable. SARAH PALIN: You need to explain your ‘terrorist map.’ YOU need to explain your ‘RELOAD’ statements. GLENN BECK: You need to explain EVERYTHING. Both of you spew this hate with no back-up. None. You prey on the idiots who watch you and listen to you and have no desire to know the truth or do their own research. If they did, they would know EVERYTHING that comes out of your mouths is a LIE.
So to the Media … again it is NOT a stretch to lay some blame on the Right Wing commentators. Not in the least.
And don’t you DARE say this is on both sides. It most certainly is NOT. No, THAT statement should not be tolerated by any Democrat/Liberal. That type of hate speech does NOT come from the left. It is not the same. IT IS NOT THE SAME.
