Sarah Palin And The Shooting Of U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords

January 8, 2011

The sickness of the extreme right-wing in this nation should not be taken lightly.  What they do and say within the echo chamber of the right-wing media has repercussions.

We saw that today in Tucson, and I am laying part of the blame right at the feet of Sarah Palin.  The shooter used a 9mm Glock handgun to blast his way onto the front pages, shooting U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, killing a federal judge, and a nine-year-old girl, along with others.

I have written many times on CP about my fear over violent and inciting comments from the likes of Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck and others of their ilk.  I sincerely believe when enough dangerous rhetoric is aimed at people such as President Obama or Democratic members of Congress, and then reverberates in the right-wing media, it makes sick minds think actions like that which took place today in Tuscon are somehow appropriate.

Consider what Sarah Palin tweeted in 2010.  (Below)

The map with gun targets (below) was a frontal assault on our sensibilities, and also aimed at the well-being and safety of members of Congress. If you do not agree than I can only conclude your IQ matches the bust size of the hillbilly from Wasilla.

Was Sarah Palin trying to be funny when she wanted to “get on target”?  Was Sarah Palin trying to be family oriented when she used these tactics with language about guns and people being targeted?    Was Sarah Palin showcasing her ‘christian’ lifestyle and values?  What version of the bible is read in Wasilla?

Or is Sarah Palin just fucking stupid?  (I never use that type of language here on my blog…..but there comes a time for everything.) 

Everyone knows from the actions she has taken to make money over the past two years that Sarah Palin is greedy. She is out for every dollar she can scavenge.  Now we also know she is a very dangerous person.

The  shootings in Tucson tell us so.

    A view from a Canadian politics junkie:

    YES! Sarah Palin IS F—-N STUPID!
    I truly can not get my head around where American political culture is going!
    Why is HealthCare such a BIG STINK?
    What’s with all the freakin’ guns?
    Why is Congress such a snakepit?

    Good post, but for all we know gabby Giffords was an innocent bystander and the hit was contracted by some ranchers with a grudge against Judge Roll. I’m going to stand here behind the yellow crime scene tape for a few days until the FBI has had time to get their story straight and conceal the truth from us all. (Cynic? Who, me?)
