Sarah Palin's Gun Control Rhetoric Isn't Funny Even when She Laughs (Keeping Blood Libel alive)
Yahoo! News ^ | January 30, 2011 | William Browning

Posted on 01/30/2011 1:43:53 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

The Daily Beast reports Sarah Palin's speech to the Safari Club International Convention in Reno, Nev., has its members excited about taking on President Barack Obama's coming gun control issue. Palin warned that Obama and liberals will try to take away their guns.

"We need to keep tabs on what the White House is telling us. Just think if we had stricter gun control laws! Imagine, though -- imagine making life more miserable for the liberals who want that gun control." Palin was grinning and laughing as she spoke these words.

Palin has a very vivid imagination.

Imagine the parents of 9-year-old Christina Taylor Green who are miserable because they no longer have their daughter. Imagine the other families who are in misery from actually being victims of a shooting. Palin might have a difference stance if she lived in Gangland, USA at the center of any one of a dozen cities in America. Palin, as a mother of five, should be able to sympathize a little bit, right?

Earlier in her speech, Palin proudly told stories about how her children have hunting names associated with Alaska. Bristol is named after Bristol Bay. Piper is named after an airplane, Willow after a stream.

The kicker is her son Trig. Mommy and Daddy Palin lovingly named him after the part of the gun which fires the weapon. Just pull the trigger.

Palin can't seem to help her gun rhetoric less than a month after a crazy gunman killed six people....

And one also wonders how many fewer rounds the crazy @$$ would have gotten off if just one citizen in the crowd had been armed.

The liberal socialist want gun control until no American can possess a firearm unless they work for the government. Here is a solution to gun control. Every registered Democrat in the United States turn in their firearms first and the rest of the American people will think about turning theirs in afterwards!

Liberals need to lead by example.

As for Palin speaking about gun control in America, she has the right to say anything she wants, and I support her comments 110%!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! When the liberals stop talking about assassinating G W Bush and others they don't like, then and only then will thy have a sinctilla of an argument about Palin!

The fundamental American right to vote is hindered if you have been convicted of a felony or you are mentally incapable of doing so. Gun ownership should have the same standards.

You mean I shouldn't even have to show ID to buy a gun? Great.

I can’t wait to read his take on what to do with automobiles because of the carnage they produce yearly. I guess he will lead the protest to shut down GM. But, I guess I will have to wait for him to feel safe to come out from under the bed.

Imagine that EEEEVIL Sarah, standing up for our most precious right. Without the right to keep and bear arms, we would have no others. The left would have seen to that years ago.

I'm sure liberals are dripping with sorrow as they ramp up this opportunity to demonize gun owners, and strip Americans of their right to defend themselves from criminals and lunatics. ...Rather than trample on liberty, encourage free people to take responsibility for thier own safety by arming themselves. It will work out better than turning them into defenseless victims. Ask the people in Mexico who can't arm themselves against the criminals who run the country.

LOL. The "other" families. Funny how we only know the names of the 9 year old girl, the Congresswoman, those affiliated with her office and the Judge.

The other 15 victims are placed in the "others" category.

If William Browning had even the brains of a turd, he'd know that the little girl's family said they were opposed to expanding gun control laws.

But why let facts get in the way of a good smear campaign.

Would these cities be those which are cesspools of crime and poverty resulting from years of corrupt, self serving, liberal leadership? The same cities which keep people over-legislated, placated, poor, dependent, and ignorant through entitlement programs?

Yeah...those would be the cities.

The jackasses who criticize Sarah Palin challenging her to live in a ghetto are the same jackasses who created the ghetto!

I LOVE it!!

Sarah making the Librats get their filled diapers all in a twist... AGAIN!!!

And again, and again. This stuff really never gets old, because it's so infantile, and it protrays so eloquently the pre-school thinking of these developmental defectives.

The only time Sarah will actually be implicated as an accessory to numerous violent deaths will be when she wins the White House, and thousands of Libsnots' heads simply explode, while thousands of others slash their wrists, eat tubs of Drano, jump out of windows, swallow all their "pain" meds at once, and walk in front of speeding highway traffic because they finally realize that their lives never were worth living.

For which President Palin will be awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.

Go get 'em, Madame President; the ducks are all lined up and waiting. Ready on the right.., ready on the left...

B^D

Just for the record, - - these libs are hurting their own hateful cause.
My cousin, who's a union guy, and pays little or no attention to politics (in fact, has never even voted before), heard so much jazz about Sarah Palin he got curious, and happened to watch her 'blood libel' speech.
He instantly took to everything she said, and says he'll vote for her if she runs.
He may be union, but he's got kids who he wants to see have a future.

I heard an interview with Christina Green’s father. He said Christina wouldn’t want more government restrictions imposed on the people. This journalist is using her name advocating exactly what she - and her family - do not want.

Exactly, and IATW, the shooter most probably would have been, by law, denied permission to buy a firearm IF his parents, or a friend, or a teacher, or the idiotic mouthy sheriff, had seen to it that he got psychiatric evaluation, counselling and treatment. And true defenders of the 2nd Amendmdent would have supported that denial.

Thank you thank you for pointing this out. I can't believe it took 33 posts in this thread before someone got to that point. These queers in the lamestream media have a template, and the truth is just in the way of their template.
