Skip to comments.Salon Publishes Call for Murder of Sarah Palin
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.
“Vick gets a pet to torture and we get rid of Palin. A win-win for everyone!”

What a fine, shining example of leftist “tolerance”. /sarc
Leftist are traitors and the scum of the earth.(spit!)
As Shakespeare said, “Every dog will have his day.”
Our day is coming soon and none of this will forgotten.
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.
“16 hours per day
they are subjected to the most painfully possible stimulus”
Listening to Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Barney Frank, Nancy Pelosi, all alternating with the Dave Matthews retard band.
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.
"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."
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.
Sounds a little “racist” to me.
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..
Would it be OK to call for the execution of the editorial staff at Salon?
You know that after listening to that voice for longer than 30-seconds Vick would be lunging for the cattle prods. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, I can relate to that. I felt like puncturing my ear drums with an ice pick when I heard Hillary screech.
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.
