Salon Publishes Call for Murder of Sarah Palin
Saturday, December 18, 2010 | Kristinn

Posted on 12/18/2010 7:45:58 AM PST by kristinn

Liberal online political magazine Salon.com published a letter to the editor yesterday that called for the murder of 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.

The letter was written in response to a mocking article at Salon titled, Good Morning America's painfully friendly interview with Sarah Palin by Alex Pareene.

Pareene snarkily sums up the GMA interview, "The interview was basically split into a couple of distinct sections: How awesome is your family, how bad is Barack Obama, how awful are people who criticize you, and how awesome is America?"

The first letter published in response to the article calls for Palin to be electrocuted by a cattle prod by convicted dog abuser Michael Vick, "Vick gets a pet to torture and we get rid of Palin. A win-win for everyone!"

That letter has apparently sat in the pole position under the article in the Letters to the Editor section since it was posted "Friday, December 17, 2010 12:33 PM ET."

The Letters section for the GMA article lists 65 letters published over four pages. Each letter has a "flag" button to call attention to Salon editors about objectionable comments. It seems no one at Salon finds it objectionable for the site to publish an explicit call for murder.

Salon's Editor in Chief, Joan Walsh, is a regular on MSNBC and CNN. Will Chris Matthews, Joe Scarborough or Wolf Blitzer attack Walsh for prominently publishing a call for the murder of Sarah Palin? Will Walsh do the right thing and publicly apologize to Palin and pull the letter?

" I Have An Idea"

" Let's let Michael Vick keep Sarah Palin as a pet instead of a dog. It will be safer for dogs and maybe we'll get the satisfaction of having Vick electrocute Palin! You know that after listening to that voice for longer than 30-seconds Vick would be lunging for the cattle prods.

"Vick gets a pet to torture and we get rid of Palin. A win-win for everyone!"

If proggie/commie/libs weren’t so damn dangerous, they would be hilarious in a theatre-of-the-absurd way. They aren’t funny though because (I believe) these people are truly delusional and psychopathic. Translated: insane. We have to wrestle power from them ... deliberately, firmly ... then stomp their bastard leadership into oblivion before they can regenerate.

I agree. Why is FR even giving this the time of day? All it does is demean Sarah.

There are so many haters out there. I’m afraid for Sarah- especially if she was elected president.

I wish I could still be surprised by the hatred felt by the left. It’s been over two years since the election and they’re still obsessed with Palin. I don’t think they even hate Rush Limbaugh this much.

I find it entirely acceptable that Salon cares to be known as a web site that tacitly condones the advocacy of political murder. If they’re OK with it, too, then all power to them, and may they rot in hell.

Sounds like you may want to consider thinning out the friends group, you can’t pick your relatives but you can pick which ones you want to spend more time with. I don’t mind if someone thinks Sarah is not the best candidate for president but if they go nuts about it I don’t want to be around them any more than I can help.

I read some of his other Salon letters, and there is some good news:

"Obama is done. He will not be re-elected in 2012. Doesn't matter who the republicans run - Palin, Gingrich, Huckleberry. No matter. They will win. Next election, I will not give a dime of my money nor a minute of my time to any candidate. It doesn't matter anymore which party is in power as Obama and the strong majority of Dems in Congress have proven."

Sometimes I wonder just how many liberals are sociopaths.

Bingo! One of my pet theories - the 'elite' ones are narcissistic sociopaths. . .

**Even better...said person is kept healthy and alive for as long as possible and 16 hours per day...**

be forced to listen to recordings of speeches by Sarah and Ronald Reagan.

If it doesn’t cure them ..it WILL kill them.

Just to be clear. The person who wrote the comment wants a Black Man to murder a White Woman who is the Mother of four children including a handicapped child?

Sounds a little “racist” to me.

Yeah, if the poster said Michael Vick, or better yet a white dude, should murder Obama and it was posted on Breitbart, no harm no foul.

Andrew would use the “fantasy” defense and then get invited to appear on Letterman and The View to have a few yucks.

Pareene needs to have the rod of correction applied to him. An electric cattle prod up his nether passage might do the trick..

She is not currently a Presidential candidate, but she is an outspoken citizen. What Salon is proposing is to subject a citizen to a painful execution simply for speaking her mind. We used to call countries that did that 'totalitarian'.

Would it be OK to call for the execution of the editorial staff at Salon?

I would hope that the SS and FBI both pay him a visit.

Don't count on it. Alec Baldwin says that Henry Hyde should be lynched. The left gets away with bellicosity that would land anybody else in jail.

The second Amendment was written especially for monsters like the left.

This is par for the course for the lefties. Back when Reagan got shot and the news came that he would survive and recover, some uber-leftist people I knew at the co servatory threw a “Better Luck Next Time” party.

Some leftie celebrity wished Clarence Thomas’ wife would feed him a high-cholesteral diet so he would drop dead of a heart attack. The same fate was wished by liberals on Dick Cheney.

And a few years back some leftie-wacko “filmmaker” wasted celluloid on a movie about the assassination of President Bush.

-But this all gets a pass from liberals.

Ditto.

But I am also sick of the daily grind of the crap from the insane right that is not 100% behind what Palin stands for!

It's one thing to not want her as President, but not to defend her against the left and media if you are conservative is disgusting! Whether they like it or not she has a better chance than anyone else to be our nominee.

Well, I defend her - especially when they go after the kids. But Palinists need to get a grip. If the election were today against 0 she would be hammered. Her negatives among “independents” is significant. Right now she could not beat a sitting President with a low 40% approval rating. That is a bad deal. BTW most other Reps could not beat 0 today either so this is not necessarily a Palin only thing.

So what is the plan to get proactive and overcome her perceived negatives?

Flame on - the question stands.

I was around for Reagan and Palin is Reagan in High Heels! But she is better looking, Reagan was not in his prime.

Palin is quicker in getting her words out than any politician in the last 50 years, this is a sign she says what she believes!

Finally, someone who tells the Truth!

Some people seems to think a woman can’t run this country, that’s another reason why she needs to be the first woman President!

She would do a lot to hurt the men having sex with men lifestyle,

Normal would be back in again!

That’s probably the biggest reason that the anti Palin freepers keeping spurring out all the same negatives Reagan lived with, yes, our token liberal democrat Trolls and with their sick lifestyle)!

Another Palinista moment. I worked on two of Reagan's Presidential campaign's. Times are way different. CNN was just getting started and the MSM was less open about their hatred of Conservatives. Reagan would go into a meeting with people who hated his guts and come out with them eating out of his hand - I saw it first hand. Palin may be quick with retorts but she still has to overcome the negatives and her current path will not do that.

I do not believe ANY woman will win after 0 is done - not even Hillary. But that is a different discussion.

The polls said Reagan couldn't win, and so called conservatives said he couldn't win

Nothing has changed, No one has been loved by the base like Reagan and Palin and media and Rinos hate both!

Well you are wrong. SOME polls said Ronnie wouldn't win, internal polling in BOTH parties said he was going to.

You are delusional if you think nothing has changed.

I still ask what is the plan to move Palin’s negatives more positive?

Or are you just going to tell your self right up to election day the pools are wrong and that is good?

Carter was ahead in all the polls before Reagan got nomination! All fake polls just as today:

Any other Republican COULD WIN Carter but not Reagan and the dems wanted Reagan because because of the polls!

Reagan finally went ahead in the polls 3 weeks before the election!

The fact is this whoever is Republican Nominee will win!

Carter had better poll numbers than Zero
