Rep. Gabrielle Giffords SHOT After Sarah Palin Places Her In Crosshairs

We hardly think we can be accused of gay blog hyperbole here by saying that Sarah Palin has blood on her hands today after Democratic Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was shot in the head while speaking at a Tuscon, Arizona grocery store. 11 other people were shot and injured in the attack.rhetoric, sarah palin crosshairs, targets map

The incident is easily linked to Sarah Palin’s posting images of Rep. Giffords’ name and location in crosshairs on her Takebackthe20 website, which encourages Tea Party members to get rid of Democratic elected officials in Republican districts. Palin is no stranger to riling up gun-crazy Tea Party members. She famously tweeted, “Commonsense Conservatives and lovers of America: “Don’t Retreat, Instead – RELOAD!”sarah palin open beak comments

Well Ms. Palin, someone has. Rep. Giffords is currently undergoing emergency surgery for a gunshot wound to her head after you put her in your crosshairs and demanded your followers to “RELOAD” and “prescribe the solution”.

This entire story is revolting. I am sick to my stomach writing this. Do you think Sarah Palin is to blame for this shooting?

*Update: Palin’s camp have taken down the Takebackthe20 page. The Facebook page for the group remains up.

    Really? I wonder how many people are going to read this and think how bad Sarah Palin is. Something tells me a kid that list his favorite books as “Mein Kampf”, “Fahrenheit 451” and “The Communist Manifesto” is not going to be surfing Palin’s site looking for people to shoot. Our country has enough problems to be have propaganda like this divide us further.

  • Wow! This is truly disturbing! It seems to me that “The War Against Terrorism” needs change locations. From the sounds of this there is a terrorist sect in Alaska. And hey, if we send troops to “invade” Alaska at least there will be interesting sites, like moose, and snow, oh and Russia. Thats right you can see Russia from her nefarious base of operations……. im totally voting pain in 2012, our country needs to be run by an idiot trigger happy terrorist!

    this is on really sick demented woman and I use the word woman loosely. people take a stand really there is no denying what she is.

    Palin claims to be so patriotic. Reality is…..she’s more of a terrorist and incitor of violence than patriotic!

  • wtf

    ok those are all 3 books i read in school. so get a clue. no matter what palin is a tactless moron, who wouldnt care if people died for her to get power. shes scum and any supporter of hers needs to be kicked out of the country. traitorous assholes everyone of them.

    This is a form of bullying and should not be tolerated by ANYONE. What kind or example are we setting for young adults? Palin is a MEAN PERSON and people are embracing it! I am sick, just sick of the gun imagery being used. What message is that sending?

  • Bryce D.

    My goodness, look at you go! The first point that was being made and I’ll clarify it just for you; the kid listed those books as his favorites and they’re not what the average Palin/Republican is going to be reading. The second point about dividing us further; your ignorant post proved exactly that.

    I in no way was defending Sarah Palin but trying to express that she really did not have anything to with this. I agree, the crosshairs are pretty tasteless but I’m sure the pro-gun/NRA members that support her are not taking them literally. The reload comment the same.

    I hope you understand what I was trying to say and next time instead of flying off the handle and just writing out your angry words. Take some time and ask yourself, “Am I helping or hurting the cause I believe in?”
