Skip to comments.Sarah Palin's Statement Regarding William Long (Recruiter who was murdered)
Posted on 06/02/2009 7:28:44 AM PDT by rintense
"The stories of two very different lives with similar fates crossed through the media's hands yesterday - both equally important but one lacked the proper attention. The death of 67-year old George Tiller was unacceptable, but equally disgusting was another death that police believe was politically and religiously motivated as well.
William Long died yesterday. The 23-year old Army Recruiter was gunned down by a fanatic; another fellow soldier was wounded in the ambush. The soldiers had just completed their basic training and were talking to potential recruits, just as my son, Track, once did.
Whatever titles we give these murderers, both deserve our attention. Violence like that is no way to solve a political dispute nor a religious one. And the fanatics on all sides do great disservice when they confuse dissention with rage and death."
Governor Sarah Palin
Damn. Just when I think it’s not possible to love this woman anymore.
Almost perfect, Sarah, but I wouldn’t have even mentioned Tiller.
Not even a passing glance.
Thank you Sarah! I’m glad someone had the nerve to address this TERRORIST ATTACK! Obviously the Idiot-In-Charge couldn’t find the time to say anything! And he was the victims’ boss.
Where is Mitt’s statement of support for the military, or Huckabee’s, or any of the other candidate wannabees?
Sara is simply the best because she knows where she stands.
Sarah Palin: doing the jobs that a Chicago socialist thug poseur won’t do.
Exactly,,,,,no OUTRAGE from Disneyland East.
Sarah has forgotten more about class than Barry will ever know.
God Bless ya Gov!!!
I’m glad she addressed Tiller and that is was unacceptable. Good for you, Sarah.
This was a MUSLIM TERRORIST ACT
against our US Military,
and the CiC is AWOL.
Are you sure that is the facebook link you intended?
The only nationally known Republicans, who are not talk show hosts, exhibiting any leadership these days.
The other “republicans” should be ashamed.
this is the reason I will be supporting Palin in 2012
At least spel here name rite.
Where does Sarah say this on FB? That link takes me to a photo.
Hey - OBambi - Take That! !
Bravo? Even she won’t call the killer what he is, a muslim terrorist.
I love these short and to the point statements. Reminds me of someone from the past.
Thanks...the link was a FB photo page.
Not necessary to spell it out unless you are an imbecile or mentally retarded.
This surprises you?
You have to mention both, though, to point out the bias. She phrased it in this way to demonstrate the double standard. And it is a double standard.
It's good of her to mention our fallen Soldiers, and doubly so because in contrast, it shows how small Tiller really was.
Thank you, Governor Palin.
...and has anyone, anywhere, heard anything from ‘o’?
Sarah did call him a fanatic. That’s pretty close.
I think she did the right thing by mentioning Tiller; it clearly shows the contrast in the way the two stories have been treated by Obama and the media. Many folks don’t believe the media is biased and statements like this that make the point very well may convince some to open their eyes to what is going on in this country.
No, none of it surprises me.
I said “MUSLIM PRISON CONVERT” when his picture first appeared,
and I really didn’t expect 0bama to speak out against his future “enforcers”.
I LOVE Sarah Palin.
Being able to WATCH her talk is even better than just READING what she just said.
She is HOT!!!!!!
If you read posts on her page from last night and again this afternoon you will notice a lot of vulgar vicious attacks on Sarah, and conservatives, and Christians. These are coming from students of Whitney M. Young Magnet High School in Chicago. And what makes that interesting is that Michelle Obama went there. Hmmm
Check out these little twerps and let ‘em have it.
Ditto to what you said.
But the whole point was to call attention to the crickets chirping as opposed to the trumpets blaring.
Beautifully done, too.
For the first time since 9-11, terrorists have slain a soldier on our territory. And this White House is, to their shame, remains silent.
Right On—Sarah Palin, saying what needs to be said. We need you in Washington to fix the mess Obama is making. Stay on message till 2012.
Our Commander-in-Chief is AWOL. How reassuring........
.........to our enemies.
(Not including Rush, Levin and similar commentators -- they speak for conservatives, but they are commentators/entertainers, not politicians.)
OMG! I adore this woman - I think she is the only politician who has made a statement about these soldiers!
“but equally disgusting”
Your points are well made.
However, it is the morally equivalent phrase above that rankles. I staunchly reject the idea that these murders were “equally disgusting”.
Speaking of staunch, by the way, you’ll find no more stalwart supporter of the redoubtable Governor Sarah Palin than I.
I wonder how many more it will take before people take up arms against islamic hate groups?? All of these murders could’ve been stop with some action from our elected politicians. This should wake them up a bit and show lack of action is unexceptable against thugs. Im sure B.O. will apologize to more Muslims that hate freedom and justice and our way of life.
“The only nationally known Republicans, who are not talk show hosts, exhibiting any leadership these days.
I’ve got to agree. Perhaps they should start their own party or work on kicking out all of the Dem-Lites (RINOs).
Thank you Governor Palin! We’re still waiting for a statement from the President of the United States concerning that murdering terrorist attack in Little Rock yesterday. The first domestic terrorist attack since the election of the new administration. The silence is deafening!
Don’t forget Michelle Bachman as part of our true conservative leadership of today!
