Dem lawmaker takes exception with Palin 'reload' comment
http://thehill.com/ ^ | 03/24/10 | By Jordan Fabian

Posted on 03/25/2010 8:55:51 PM PDT by Maelstorm

Rep. Steve Israel (D-N.Y.) doesn't appreciate a remark made by former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) that used gun imagery.

Palin tweeted Tuesday about the passage of the healthcare reform bill into law:

Commonsense Conservatives & lovers of America: "Don't Retreat, Instead - RELOAD!" Pls see my Facebook page.

The New York Democrat responded Wednesday, ripping the comment:

Reload? @SarahPalinUSA Is your choice of words inciteful or ignorant?

Palin's "reload" comment came at a time when several Democratic lawmakers who voted for the healthcare bill have received personal threats to their personal safety. Palin has not condoned the incidents.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) and House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) have denounced the threats to members of Congress.

No more inciteful than ignoring millions of those he took an oath to serve.

Marxist animals and their supporters are responsible for 99% of all crimes committed in this nation, yet now intend to outlaw protests

These red “Congressional Progressive Caucus” sons of bitches would not be able to get away with nationalizing all of these industries if dueling were still permitted.

For starters, the next marxist animal in Congress that refers to peoples grandmas as “teabaggers” ought to be Preston Brooked by a fellow member.

Tim Ryan should be made to apologize for his remarks, and 100 years ago would be beaten senseless with a cane right in the House Chamber if he refused.

The GOP needs to grow a tiny pair and not let these leftist monsters run unchecked.

Bachmann ought to tell that marxist beast Pelosi to shut her stupid botox face.

What a collection of little pricks to blame Palin for something that doesn’t have anything to do with her. These Democratic slime will use any they can get their hands on. It would stop their legislation from being a POS.

What a Schmuck. He knows what Palin meant by that comment, but wants to make some noise anyway. Well, FYI DimocRAT scumbag, not only will we “reload”, but we are also taking steps so that when the tyrannical government takeover attempt occurs we’ll be ready.

The Obozo Admin will be changing U.S. policy regarding our relationship with Israel (already has begun). Israel no longer has the U.S. as an ally for as long as this schmuck occupies the WH.

LOL

I WAS going to poll the Membership to see just how many received death threats - either way (Vote for and get a threat, vote against, get a threat) to see if the
vote for it and die
Vs
Vote against it and die (there are nutcases on both sides, eh?) polled more one way or the other.

Wiser heads preveiled and I did not poll the Membership.

Still think it would be instructive, in so many ways. Then again, I am a sociologist by training.

If Israel can't "turn two mincing steps into a manly stride" then he needs to sit down and shut up.

Palin is correct. We have to keep reloading our strength, our enthusiasm, our resolve to fight the insidious onslaught of the liberals, marxists, terrorists and others out to destroy our constitution, our rights, our traditions, and our country. God bless Sarah Palin and all of you others that are with each other in this battle. If we wanted to strike out in violence, we would not waste time making empty threats. The people that do such things are not our kind.

It is becoming more and more evident that there is an organized campaign out there who's purpose is to stoke the anti GOP Conservative Tea Party movement by staging events that will eventually allow the administration to use the new found powers of the presidential King to finally once and for all shut down the voice of opposition and herald a new era of peace and co-operation for the changes that this country so desperately needs.

I suggest we all give Congresscritter Israels office a call tomorrow and ask whatever staff member answers if they're one of the 'privileged' ones who won't have to sign up for Obamacare.

Drive a wedge into them. Drive it in hard, and drive it in deep.

When these a**holes have to wonder if their own staffs are 'loyal', well....

It is obvious these Progressive Socialists have burned out their brain cells. They are in desperation mode to shift the focus off their god awful Obamanation of a Obamacare POS. So, what do they do? They target Sarah Palin. So easy. Proof that DemonRATs have the peak of their competancy and have become the StupidRAT party.

They and have evolved from DemonRATS and have become the StupidRAT party.

These Democrats are unhinged and it means they know exactly what they did by passing the obamanation called ObamaCare.

Palin made that tweet prior to Hoyer’s press conference claiming the so called “threats.”

Their guilt is showing and I hope this nonsense of their victim mentality and sheer hypocrisy backfires on them. Anybody with one brain cell left knows how the liberals treated Bush and Republicans for 8 years.

Plus I would hope most Americans aren’t idiotic enough to fall into the media propaganda since that statement of Palin’s is quite obvious. And these Democrats sound like 5 year olds (not 6 year olds, as Gibbs has called some republicans).

What is scary here is that if Israel feels they no longer have the backing of the U.S. (including military support) they may preemptively strike those who threaten them with nukes.

I agree that is scary. Also scary is if they do not strike those who threaten them with nukes.

What I meant to say is that Israel is likely to use nukes against their enemies if the U.S. is no longer trustworthy to them.

Thanks for the re-iteration of your position. I understand it and believe there is more than a trace of validity to it. I am not sure that I want Israel to use nukes, but if Israel feels threatened, then it should do what it has to do. I am thinking, more practically speaking, of pre-emptively attacking Iran. I am fairly certain Obama will let Iran do as it pleases while trying to keep Israel from properly defending itself.

After what I've heard of late, there is no doubt that Obozo is going to give Iran a free pass, while trying to diminish Israel's ability to defend themselves. The sanctions against Iran that WERE being considered have now been watered down to next to nothing. The U.S. is now the biggest joke on the planet, and our enemies know it. Russia has been flying high altitude bombers over UK airspace since Jan 2009 (and, more than likely, also U.S. airspace - but this admin will not let that get out). The Cold War is going to restart and soon. But, it will get very hot sooner than later.

That is proof that the Democrats are control freaks. The want to dictate how their opponent's use their tongue. I'd like to invite some of them over so they can hear some my language. They would realize that gun imagery isn't that bad..

A term that we once used, if you grew up during “Happy Days”, and were in a dead-end argument with someone who had abandoned all reason was “Drop Dead!”.

I guess in today’s tender political climate this is no longer allowed.

To bad, it seems like a perfectly reasonable response to these wussy legislators who would sacrifice Our Freedom for their POWER.
