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!"

—Owen Meany IV

Well done for taking the time to read these morons. Make sure you stop & take time out for yourself afterward - I’m sure it must be emotionally draining to read their bile.

She’s not a Presidential candidate and they’ll argue that a cattle prod never killed anyone and the whole event is being overblown.

This is a terroristic threat of murder made against a public figure. Where is law enforcement? Where are the owners of Salon?

Salon is known for this stuff. There is a post on Salon’s web site by some unhinged liberal that actually says he wants to kill all Republicans. The post has been there for years and Salon seems to be okay with it.

I have an idea: Sarah can take care of herself against this sort of hypocritical and hateful bigot. In the even that someone tougher than Sarah comes after her (and there aren't many liberals in that category!), think about Todd finishing the Iron Dog in 4th place, the last 400 miles with a broken arm. I would not want to go up again a man that tough when he's in perfect health! I have another idea: Let's just put Sarah in the White House, where she belongs from 2013 to 2021. The liberals can then take Obama off to play with Vick, and the difference is that Obama would probably like it, and Vick could easily control the pansy from our White House.

The level of hate here proves how they fear a President Palin because they think the WHOLE NATION IS DUMB FOR NOT GETTING OBAMA AND SOCIALISM.

It would be a VERY bad thing if anybody were to physically harm Sarah Palin. Or her family.

I seriously doubt America would get upset if there was a close encounter against Obama or his family, but Sarah Palin?

A whole heck of a lot of America will come to the Palins defense than Obamas.

You have to remember folks, we are dealing with seriously deranged haters on the left.

One Yahoo message board I frequent has had two libs imprisoned since 2002, another in a Dutch prison for MURDER, and one that died trying to kill two guards at the Pentagon, as well as James Lee, the guy who took hostages at the Discovery Channel.

These people, already teetering on the edge of sanity anyway, are ginned up to a true hate by the radical leftist, Soros-financed media, like Alternet, Truthout, Morons.Borg, etc., but they get NO PRESS from the mostly-lib media when they realize reporting it more than one cycle might harm Democrats.

A happy, loving, hard working, self-sufficient family is an anathema to liberals. The mere presence of such a family on earth torments them.

What they don't usually admit out loud, but in a moment of honesty revealed in that on-line comment, is that those who don't submit to their utopia must be killed.

Nuts who threaten public figures are a dime a dozen, but Salon’s decision to publish his letter speaks volumes about the state of politics and journalism. To the left, hatred and death threats against conservatives are just common sense, but any criticism of Dear Leader is racist. Their logic, like their belief system, is emotional and vacant.

Owen Meany is a fictional character from the novelist John Irving. But I agree, they need to figure out who this person is and determine if he or she is sane.

My guess is that Todd or Sarah would knock down whomever intended them harm (or harm to their family) at 300 yards or more.

The fact that Sarah stirs them up so unbelievably to such anger tells you that she is spot on. You receive the most flak when you are right over the taregt...about to bomb it into rubble, metaphorically speaking of course.

It’s good that they continue to keep the letter on their site. It allows an unknowing reader to recognize not only what kind of people read Salon, but also the kind of people who run it.

I read “Owen Meany IV’s” other letters, at least as many as I had time to read.

I’m not a psychiatrist, but...I spend way to much time on the www. He’s typical of an attention-mongering breed that inhabits message boards. They must be emotionally unhinged and alone or in bad relationships because they come on the boards and attack other posters, use vulgar language as punctuation, and seem to have a *lot* of time on their hands (Unemployed? Posting from work?).

He’s a sick puppy in a sea of sick puppies (Salon) and that’s what discourse/exchange of ideas has come to in the world today.

And I don’t care if they pull the letter, in fact I’d rather they wouldn’t. I believe posters are a reflection of the website, and Salon should be proud of what they attract.

Even better...said person is kept healthy and alive for as long as possible and 16 hours per day
they are subjected to the most painfully possible stimulus and the other eight hours they
can sleep to remain healthy.
