Schultz Suggests Palin Used 'Blood Libel' As 'Appeal To Extremist Christian Conservative Base'
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 01/12/2011 3:55:57 PM PST by governsleastgovernsbest

Call it a libel squared . . .

Ed Schultz has suggested that Sarah Palin employed the term "blood libel" to describe the way her critics have tried to hold her responible for the Arizona shootings "as an appeal to an extreme Christian conservative base for 2012."

Citing no evidence for his grotesque allegation, Schultz first floated it during his opening monologue. He raised it again with his first guest, Dem congressman Jan Schakowsky, and took things a despicable step further. Schultz suggested that Palin "got help from the speech from somebody who knows exactly what 'blood libel' means."

Put up or shut up time, Schultz. View video after the jump.

In politics, what is real is not important. The important is what appears to be real to the gullible. And what appears to be real is purveyed by the media and purchase by the gullible.

Fug Sgt. Schultz!

Did anyone see or hear Charles Krauthammer slam Sarah Palin for her response to the rhetoric! Charles has become a worthless tool of the left!

I wonder whether Schultz got that idea from discussions with his Neo-Nazi friends and supporters, or whether the idea arose in one of the homosexual pedophile chat rooms that he frequents.

Of course, I'm not making any charges or assertions, I'm merely asking legitimate questions as a matter of public policy interest.

According to the ADL the term “blood libel” is an extremely accurate description of what the progressive/liberal/socialist/dimocrats are doing.

The ADL’s only complaint is the term has an anti-Jewish connotations based on the term's lineage.

Okay - so you can slam a person for using an absolutely correct term. What's next?

If Palin had complained of being crucified by the press no one would have noticed. Somehow using the equally poweful imagery of a blood libel is offensive.

No. But notice how the MSM is accusing Sarah of ‘attention getting’ when she is rightfully confronting the libel that she caused the tragedy.

Whereas, Bill Clinton is not being criticized for drawing attention to himself by jumping into the fray.

I caught it, unfortunately. Used to be a time when I wouldn’t miss the panel on Bret’s show because of Krauthammer. Now I rarely watch it, because of Krauthammer. I do like Steve, though, and always have.

One minute the MSM’s calling her “dolt” who never reads anything... and now she’s a savvy, calculating expert on the nuances of historical phrases like “blood libel”??

I think I warch it just to see what bit of nonsense he (Krauthammer) comes up with. And, yes! Steve is the only one on the panel now that has any common sense. Oops, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention S.E. Cupp. She, too, is good on the panel.....and, hot!

I had heard it before, but I didn't realize that the phrase had been copyrighted, and could only be used with a specific historical reference.

I just thought it meant grievously slandered.
And in this case it applies:
Conservatives have been 'libeled' (slandered without basis in fact) about an event where blood was spilled (5 slain, over 10 wounded). Except for the copyright protection of this phrase, 'Blood Libel' is a good definition of the slander which has been spewed by the MSM.

I just heard that Alan Dershowitz, who is neither Christian nor conservative, defended Sarah Palin’s use of the term “blood libel”.

Sarah just wanted to walk around inside Ed’s mellon for awhile and wade through the mush.

Ed Schultz...and his like who continue to blame Tucson on Sarah Palin and conservatives...need to be adressed, from now on...as the Democrat Ku Klux Klan.

These people are stupid bigots....and they will only understand if confronted. The wimpy “we do not stoop to their level” types are the ones who allow this to continue

Its time to get in the face of the Dem KKK...stand up to them....do not back down

I have heard the term a few times, but never its history, much less that its use instantly casts the user as an anti-Semite. Well, that is if the user is Sarah Palin. IIRC, one of Sarah Palin’s grandparents was Jewish.

The woman just has to do her own thing as she’s been doing it. Nothing she says or does, short of publicly endorsing Barack Obama, would ever make a leftist dolt show her one ounce of respect. And, really, she does just fine without their approval.

GRRRR....”blood libel” is PRO-Jewish, because it describes the horrible, uncalled for accusation that Jews used the blood of Christians in their matzoh. Muslims accuse Jews of doing this with Muslim blood TODAY. And they teach this hatred to their kids.
